A Prayer of a Desperate Backpacker: Wishing to be part of Hermosa Festival in Zamboanga City

Dear Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragosa,

Como esta, I have a lousy spanish vocabulary so I will just pray in English.

Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with you.

(Good day! How are you? As for me, I am still aspiring to travel in various places of our country. I have never been to Mindanao before and one of the places I want to go there is Zamboanga City.)

Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

(And because I am having financial troubles for my travel leisures/escapades, kindly help me to win a free air travel transport from Air Philippines so I can be in the Hermosa Festival and participate in various tributes for your feast day.)

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

(As you know, I am a history lover so I would appreciate the said place very well because it bestows a lot of historical landmarks as well as cultural heritages.)

pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

(I knew pretty well that this is a selfish prayer but you being gracious, I could not help myself of praying this chance of visiting your beloved city. A heartful of gratitude for your time in listening/reading my prayer. Wishing for a positive response. Thank you.)
