Praying the Rosary can bring us peace of mind.
When we pray the Rosary, we put ourselves and our intentions into God’s hands. As we pray, we can let go of any worries we may have and we can choose to completely trust in God, knowing that He is listening to our prayers and that He wants the best for us and those we pray for. We can be comforted knowing that Jesus’ mother Mary is praying for us and our intentions as well.
This trust and confidence bring us peace of mind.
Praying the Rosary can increase our love for Jesus.
As we pray the mysteries of the Rosary, we meditate on the events in Jesus’ life. As we focus on all that Jesus went through for us, we can begin to understand Jesus’ great love for us. We come to see how precious we are in His eyes, that He would come to earth, suffer, and die for us.
When we allow ourselves to recognize and accept Jesus’ great love for us, we cannot help but respond to His love with a deeper love for Him.
Praying the Rosary can unite us with the Church.
The Rosary is a prayer that has been said for hundreds of years by people all over the world. We show we are part of the universal Church when we pray the Rosary for our Church, it’s priests and members, and for our Pope. We unite ourselves to our fellow brothers and sisters in faith when we pray the Rosary for this intention.
We can accept Mary’s request when we pray the Rosary for peace.
When Mary appeared to the children in Fatima over one hundred years ago, she told them to pray the Rosary every day for peace in our world. When we pray the Rosary for peace, we are following her directions.

Praying the Rosary can help us to understand the will of God in our lives.
When we pray the Rosary with faith for a specific intention, we trust that God will guide and help us to know what to do.
God helps us to understand His will in our lives in more than one way:
- He guides us when we have a specific question, intention, or situation we are praying for.
- He guides us by working with us to change our hearts to be more in tune with His own.
- He helps us to be more aware of Him in our lives.
- He helps us to understand Him better.
Often, God’s answer to our prayers is not immediate. God answers us in His time, which is not the same as our time, but God will answer and guide us. Sometimes His answers are obvious and other times they come slowly (at least to us!) and we notice little changes over time. But, we know that we can trust in Him. Jesus will never fail to answer our prayers and to help us understand His will for our lives.
Praying the can Rosary help us to focus on God instead of ourselves.
As we meditate on the events in Jesus’ life, we focus on Him. Our Rosary prayer becomes a prayer of adoration and recognition of who God is and what He has done for us and for our salvation because of His love for us.
Taking the time to focus on God is important; it pulls us away from the temptation to be self-absorbed and self-centered. When we reflect on what Jesus sacrificed for our sakes, we can then look at our lives with a different perspective. This helps us to be more mindful of God and others. It helps us to look to God first, rather than to ourselves.
We can receive the benefits of praying the Rosary.
God’s love for us is a gift freely given. God has given us the gift of the Rosary, which draws us into the mystery of Jesus’ life, passion, and death on the cross for our sakes.
When we pray the Rosary, we put our faith in God. We offer to Him our intentions and we ask the Blessed Virgin Mary, Christ’s own mother, to pray for us.
We can receive many benefits from praying the Rosary. We can have peace of mind, an increase in love for Jesus, unity with our Church, follow Mary’s request, understand better the will of God in our lives, and a greater focus on God instead of ourselves.
