This devotion comes to us from South of the Border (La Mano Mas Ponderosa), where Catholic imagery is awesomely colorful, literal, and evocative.
O Powerful Hand of God! I place my Christian soul before you, and in my despair and anguish, beseech you to aid me with your almighty power. At your feet I place the devotion of my sorrowful heart that I might be delivered from my suffering. May the loving kindness of your power help me and give me strength and wisdom to live in peace and happiness. (Here present your petitions).
