We promise, if our petition is granted, to glorify thee by making known thy favor, to bless and sing thy praises forever. Relying then upon thy merits and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we pray thee grant that:

[Mention Intention]

Pray for us, O holy St. Rita, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
