Prayer Asking for the Help of the Holy Souls

by Blessed Mary of Providence, foundress of the Society of Helpers of the Holy Souls

Holy suffering souls who can obtain so many graces for us, remember us in the midst of your sufferings.  I will work unceasingly to obtain for you the joys of heaven, and I know you will plead for me.

I beg both for myself and for my relations and benefactors, friends, and enemies, pardon of our sins, and the grace of perseverance in good, so we may save our souls.  Set us free from all misfortunes, miseries, sicknesses, trials, and labors.

Obtain for us peace of heart; assist us in all our actions; help us promptly in all our spiritual and temporal needs; console and defend us in our dangers.  Pray for the Supreme Pontiff, for the exaltation of holy Church, for peace between nations, for Christian princes, and for tranquility among peoples; and obtain that we may one day all rejoice together in Paradise forever and ever.  Amen.
