O Holy Patroness of those in need, St. Rita, whose pleadings before your Divine Lord are almost irresistible, who for thy lavishness in granting favors you have been called the Advocate of the Hopeless and even Saint of the Impossible.  St. Rita, so humble, so pure, so mortified, so patient and of such compassionate love for your Crucified Jesus you can obtain from Him whatsoever you ask.  Because of this, we confidently have recourse to you, expecting, if not always relief, at least comfort.  Kindly receive our petition and show your power with God on behalf of your supplicant.  Be lavish to us, as you have been in so many wonderful cases, for the greater glory of God, for the spreading of your own devotion, and for the consolation of those who trust in you. 

We promise if our petition is granted, to glorify you by making known your favor, to bless and sing your praises forever.  Relying then upon your power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the merits he earned for us by His suffering and death on the cross, we humbly ask your aid.  (Mention your request)
