Mary, our Mother,
we know that you are our Perpetual Help,
not only in our spiritual need but in our material need as well.
With humble hearts and childlike confidence we beg you
to help us in our present financial stress.
Due to unforseen circumstances,
we are now in dire need,
since we cannot meet our just debts.
Dear Mother, we are not asking for wealth or proseperity,
but merely for help in satisfying our pressing obligations.
You are the Queen of Heaven and earth,
and, as such, the dispenser of so many favors granted by your Son, Jesus.
We know you are most kind and generous to all your devoted children.
Loving Mother, we plead with you
to obtain the financial help we so desperately need in our present situation.
We thank you, dear Mother,
and promise to make your perpetual help known far and wide.
