PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN - (Never known to fail) Oh, most beautiful flower of Mt Carmel, Fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven, blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. O Star of the Sea, help me & show me You are my Mother. Oh, Holy Mary Mother of God, Queen of Heaven & Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. (Make request) There are none that can withstand your power. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (3 times). Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3 times). Say this prayer for 3 consecutive days and then you must publish it and it will be granted to you.
Grateful thanks. Y.B.
