This is a prayer, also called a Novena[no-vee-nah], to St. Rita. She is a Saint that helps out with things that seem impossible. I used this prayer[pray the same prayer each night, for 9 nights] when my husband's job was in jeopardy. By the 3rd night of praying this prayer, my husband was able to keep his job. I continued to pray even after the prayer was granted. This really does work.
