      Oh, Seven Powers that are the Saint among
      Saints, I humbly kneel before your miraculous picture
      to ask your intercession before God, loving Father that
      protects all creation, living and dead, and I ask in the
      name of the most sacred and sweet name of Jesus,
      that you accede to my plea and return to me spiritual
      peace and material success, receding from my house
      and removing from my path the dangers that are the
      cause of my evils without ever being able to torment
      me again. My heart tells me that my wish is just and if
      you accede to it, you will add more glory to the
      blessed name of our God for years and years, from
      whom we have received his Promise. Amen
