I am consecrated to the Virgin Mary through Saint Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort's method. Although I have read his treatise on the matter, I find myself in a situation that I hadn't considered when reading his work. If you are familiar with the treatise, you know that all the merits of our prayers are given to Mother Mary so that she can present them to God "more perfectly." Therefore, you don't ask for anything in your prayers; rather, you simply ask for the Virgin Mary's intercession.
But what should one do with prayers that have a specific part for asking for something? For example, I have many cards/icons with prayers and images of saints, and one specific example is Saint John Paul II's prayer where, at the end, you can ask for something you need and possibly receive it through the saint's intercession. Another example is Saint Thomas Aquinas's prayer asking for intelligence.
So, what should someone consecrated to the Virgin Mary do with prayers like these? Omit the parts where you ask for something (but, in the case of Saint Thomas Aquinas's prayer, the entire prayer is a request) or just ask anyway?
If there's anything I have not understood properly about the consecration or about praying, please, correct me.
