Our Lady of the Prairies

We just discovered through the Cukierski Apostolate another facet of Our Beautiful Gem, Our Lady of the Prairies. It seems like the ideal time to have learned of her under this title, so many of us are living through financial hard times right now. Following are two prayers in time of Financial Need.

Our Lady of the Prairies,

Mary Immaculate, Our Queen,Our Mother, obtain for us,
we humbly pray,the gifts of the Holy Ghost.
Graciously be near us in our present needs
and help us by thy intercession,
that Almighty God
may be pleased to grant us
the favour for which we pray.

Our Lady of the Prairies,
Pray for us.

(Imprimatur July 16th, 1959, + F. J. Klein, Bishop of Saskatoon.)

Prayer to Our Lady of Perpetual Help
in Times of Financial Need

Realizing, dearest Mother of Perpetual Help, that thou art our perpetual help not only in spiritual but also in temporal necessities, we approach thee with submissive and humble hearts. Because we have a child-like and affectionate trust in thy power and goodness, beseeching thee to assist us in or present financial worry. Owing to untoward circumstances which have arisen in our lives, we are in dire want and pecuniary embarrassment, being unable to meet our honest debts.

We are not asking, dearest Mother of Perpetual Help, for wealth, if the possession of it is not in accordance with the holy will of God. We merely beg of thee that assistance which will enable us to satisfy our most pressing obligations.

We believe, Dear Mother of God, that thou art the Queen of heaven and earth, and as such, the instrument and special dispenser of thy divine Son’s graces; that thou hast acquired by virtue of thy wonderful dignity, a sweet jurisdiction over all creation. We believe that thou art not only rich and bountiful, but extremely kind and generous to all thy loving and devoted children. We plead with thee, therefore, dear Mother, to obtain for us the help we so urgently need in our present financial difficulty. We thank thee, dear Lady of Perpetual Help, and promise. to publish far and wide, the glories of thy miraculous picture.
