Saint Martin De Porres Prayer 4
O BLESSED SAINT MARTIN DE PORRES,
Humble servant of the Lord, who embraced faith with ardor, and with charity and immense love you filled the hearts of the needy, of the most unfavored ones, and were the consolation of souls and bodies, taking great care of the sick and working thousands of wonders and great miracles so as to favor those who resorted to you asking for help; I plead that you be my intercessor and you help me with a miracle in my economy. My great protector Saint Martin de Porres, you who occupy a principal place in Glory, who followed without doubt the steps of the Lord, and you felt so much devotion and love for the Virgin Mary: speak to Them, ask Them for their valuable mediation, tell Them what I suffer for my difficulties and burdens, and implore Them to send me a solution for my pains and necessities. O charitable saint, saint of miracles, I need to feel your powerful intercession: I implore you with my heart in my hand, and with all my hope and confidence, that you make it possible that this grave economic crisis, through which my family is going through, depart from us at once. Give me please, prodigious Martin, what now is so lacking and which I so much need: (ask with much faith what you need to obtain) Grant me this miracle which I humbly ask you for, dissipate from my home all lack and scarcity, make it so my prayers and supplications come before the Virgin and the Lord, since from Them, who are always filled with compassion and mercy, I know I can hope for all. With the same faith and hope I ask that you bring me the spirit of charity and dedication so that I lovingly serve God, and that I know how to do good for my brethen, just as many times you have done. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
