Novena in honour of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary..better late than never

I learned of a novena that Priests for Life are circulating. The novena was officially meant to start on the 7th of August, but I will begin today, the 8th of August. There is also a brief form on the Priests for Life website; which allows them to make a tally of who is reciting the novena.The more who say the novena the merrier! The novena is also available en Espanol.
The Novena Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ,
 You have conquered the power of death
And opened for humanity
The hope of eternal life in body and soul.
You granted your Mother
A share in heavenly glory,
And did not allow decay to touch her body.
As we prepare for the Feast of the Assumption,
Grant us new confidence in the victory of life over death,
And renewed reverence for the human body.
As we honor Mary, Assumed into Heaven,
                                                                       May we proclaim the hope of Your Gospel:
                                                                         That you want every human life seated on your throne.
                                                                    May that hope strengthen us to protect every life here on earth.
                                                                     You live and reign forever and ever. Amen.
