I see that I have this exact prayer, but with the more archaic language, saved already on my computer. I do not remember my source. Attached to it is the following:

"This prayer was found in the 50th year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In 1505 it was sent from the Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle. Whoever shall read this prayer or hear it or keep it about themselves shall never die a sudden death or be drowned, nor shall poison take effect on them – neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy or be burned in any fire or be overpowered in battle. Say for nine mornings for anything you desire. It has never been known to fail, provided that the request is for one’s spiritual benefit of for those whom we are praying for.

We published the above claim, which usually accompanies the printed prayer, although we do not know of its authoritative source. – From Favorite Prayers to St. Joseph, TAN BOOKS"
