Novena to Saint Martha - Day 2

O glorious Saint Martha,
I have recourse to your protection and aid,
And as proof of my affection and faith
I promise faithfully to complete this novena.

Comfort me in my difficulties
And intercede for my family
With your intimate friend, our savior,
That we may always hold God in our hearts
And be provided for in our necessities.

I beg your supplications
Especially in behalf of the favor
I ask of you in this novena.

(mention your request).

I ask you, Saint Martha,
By your intercession to help me
In overcoming all my difficulties
And to teach me to become great
In the Kingdom of Heaven
By becoming as humble as you
In this world. Amen.

I have finished my novena to Santa Marta. Unfortunately, my situation is an emergency, I need a home and a job. I have no money and no where to go. I have to leave the place where I've been staying at the end of this month. Someone suggested I could do the Novena for 9 days starting on a Tuesday and let the candle burn out at the end of those days. Well, today is day 12 and I haven't even gotten an opening. I still would like to thank Santa Marta for listening to my pleas and prayer, please publish :

O St. Martha, I resort to thee and to thy petition and faith I offer up to thee this light which I will burn every Tuesday for nine Tuesdays. Comfort me in all my difficulties thro the great favour thou didst enjoy when Our Saviour lodged in thy house. I beseech the to have definite pity in regard to the favour I ask (a home and a job). Intercede for my family that we may always be provided for in all our necessities. I ask thee St Martha to overcome the dragon which thou didst cast at thy feet. – One our Father and three hail Marys and a lighted candle every tuesday and the above prayer made kown with the intentions of spreading devotion to St. Martha. This miraculous Saint grants every thing before the Tuesdays are ended. No matter how difficult.

If you could pray for me, I would appreciate it.
