I have begun working on writing prayers for myself and others. Here is a prayer I just composed. What does everyone think?

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY FOR MERCY, GRACE AND FORGIVENESS

Holy Mary, Mother of God and Lady of Mercy, we confess to you and to Almighty God that we are sinners, transgressors of the Holy Law, undeserving of Your Son’s mercy and love. Most Holy Mother, we ask you to intercede on our behalf, to implore Your Most Glorious Son to forgive our sins and have mercy on us.

Mary, Queen of Heaven, ask Your Son to shower us with his infinite grace and compassion, to show us mercy in that last day, to save us from the suffering of Hell. Please, Holy Mary, Immaculate Virgin, we know we are not deserving, but plead for our forgiveness, for our final pardon and entry into Your Son’s Heavenly Kingdom. Ask Him to keep us in eternal life, to protect us from sin, to save us from everlasting punishment.

For all our sins and transgressions, please intercede on our behalf. Acquire from Your Son the grace to overcome our sins. Ask Him to have mercy on us, to look upon us with His great compassion.

Most Blessed Virgin, we are unworthy of His grace, but pray for us.
Most Merciful Virgin, we are unworthy of His mercy, but pray for us.
Most Charitable Virgin, we are unworthy of His love, but pray for us.
Holy Mary, Our Sister and Mother, pray for us.

For the forgiveness of our sins, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of our transgressions, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of all wrongdoing, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of unrighteousness, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of our lusts, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of our unrighteous anger, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of our greed, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of our gluttony, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of our sloth, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of our envy, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of our pride, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of forgotten sins, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of inappropriate thoughts, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of wrongful deeds, pray for us.
For the forgiveness of all our sins, mortal and venial, pray for us.

Most Blessed Virgin Mary, acquire for us the grace to confess our sins, to do penance, and to amend our lives. Holy Mary, thank you for your intercessions on our behalf, for your prayers and for Your Most Precious Son, Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us.
Most Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for us.

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (–make the Sign of the Cross–). Amen.
