If I do, would that mean I don't have enough faith in our Blessed Mother? Or is it like the more people who pray for you, the better?
Here are the very words of Mary to Sister Justine:
"The GREATEST graces come from using the scapular but these graces come
in direct proportion to the degree of CONFIDENCE in ME which the user has."
The user is the giver in this case, the trust depends on you for it to work well.
Here are the favors she promised:
1. Conversion of those who do not have the faith
2. Reconciliation to the Church for those who have lost/strayed from the faith
3. Assurance of a happy death
4. Strengthening of the faith for those already in the Church
She is the mother of GOD.
But on your part you must faithful and pray, at least daily:
"Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.",
once for yourself and once for your son every day.
She will hear and answer your need, just remain in the knowledge that Mary will do it.
This should bring you much peace.
Here is a litany of the saints which includes Mary which enlists heavy weight saints to also pray for you intentions, giants before the throne of God.
"...the heartfelt prayer of a good man works very powerfully." James 4;16-17
"...but he listens to the prayers of the virtuous." Proverbs 15:29
The Risen Christ, be our hope
Name of Jesus, strengthen my son
Blood of Jesus, save my son
Body of Jesus, nourish my son
Heart of Jesus, forgive my son
Heart of Mary, remember my son
