Prayer of the Day Blessed Don Alvaro del Portillo's Childhood Marian Prayer

Don Alvaro del Portillo's Childhood Marian Prayer

Sweet Mother, never go away. 
Keep watch over me both night and day. 
Accompany me wherever I go,
And never, ever leave me alone.
Since you protect me so carefully
As my true mother,
Win for me the blessing of God
the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

I came across this prayer when reading the book Saxum. The prayer really stuck with me. I have been praying it a few times a day and am teaching it to my children.
