For the intercession of all the Saints & Angels. For the Marians of

Immaculate Conception, my marriage, my children, and for those who have prayed for me & my loved ones. For the souls in Heaven, Hell & Purgatory. May you be blessed in the name of Jesus Christ. Jesus, please fix everything.

I'm in urgent need of thy help.
