Marian prayers or Marian devotions are acts of praying to Mary, the mother of Jesus. It is mainly something done by Roman Catholics but it is also used by Anglo-Catholics. Marian prayer is not worship. It is asking Mary to pray, or intercede for you and/or other people. When you pray through Mary, you are honouring her and not worshiping her. It is to ask her to help you communicate better with her son, Jesus. They do believe she was created perfect, or without sin. They are still following the second commandment, because they are not worshiping, only asking for intercession in their lives. Many novenas and prayers can be said in her honor.
