Saint Nektarios used to pray to the Virgin Mary and say the following prayer.
Blessed Virgin Mary,
Paradise all admired, garden beautified,
I pray to you, Lord, grace my mind,
direct my thoughts, enlighten my soul.
Daughter of me pure, gentle, modest, brave,
calm and peaceful, responsible, faithful, divine,
indulgent, long-suffering, vessel of virtues,
blameless, unclaimed, of the good treasury.
Give me wisdom, prudence and moderation,
prudence and simplicity and humility.
Give me sobriety, enlightened nation,
enlightened intellect, refined spirit.
the typhoon, the wind, and arrogance,
insolence, arrogance, arrogance,
bigoted language, opinionated.
The horrible instability, the peritology,
much wickedness, and obscenity.
Grant me, O Lord, moral courage,
courage, stability, give me the card.
Give me self-abnegation, avarice,
post-cognitive zeal and amnesia.
Give me integrity, kindness of heart,
an upright, peaceful spirit, and a spirit of truth.
Flee, Panachrante, the passions of the heart,
the polynomials, Agni, of moral cowardice.
They recall her shame, audacity, cowardice,
audacity, misery and despair.
Forgive me, daughter, anger and all anger,
impatience, anger, as well as laziness.
Envy, passion, hatred, malice,
the moon, the revenge and the grudge.
I despised meanness and talkativeness,
the glossalgia the dein and profanity.
Give me, Virgin, sense, give me sensitivity.
Give me much understanding and conscientiousness.
Give me, Virgin, the joy of the Holy Spirit.
Give me peace of soul, peace of the Lord.
Give me love, divine love, reconciled,
very, warm and clean and explained.
To faith they lived, active, warm, pure, holy,
hope unshaken, sure and sure.
Remove from me, O Virgin, the cord of sin,
carelessness, drunkenness, ruthlessness,
the evil desires, the grievous debauchery,
jester of indolence and all mischief.
Give me sobriety, Daughter, give me temperance, fasting,
attention and vigilance and obedience are complete.
Give me careful attention and keen discernment,
silence and beauty, and patience forever.
Provide diligence, Despina, to work,
to finish and zeal of virtues to high school.
My soul, my heart and my mind, Virgin Mary,
keep in holiness, keep in virginity. Amen
