Dear Virginia:

The Sanskrit SlOkam that is widely used as DhyAna slOkam
is from Swamy Desikan's Sri Sthuthi for Goddess Lakshmi. 
Here it is:

KalyANAnAm avikala-nidhi: kaapi kAruNya-seemA
  NithyAmOdhA nigama-vachasAm mouLi-mandhAra-maalA
sampath-dhivyA Madhu-vijayina: SanniddhatthAm SadhA mE
  seishA dEvi sakala-bhuvana PrArTanA KaamadhEnu:

(Meaning): MahA lakshmi is the permanent abode of 
all auspiciousness . She is the One , who gives 
the quality of auspiciousness to all objects that 
are considered auspicious. She is the boundary / limit
for the quality of forbearnace against our repeated 
trespasses. She intercedes with Her Lord  on
our behalf and pleads with Him to forgive our trespasses .
She stands as the means (upAyam) during the Prapatthi
(self-surrender ) performed by the devotees and 
grants the fruits of Moksham along with Her Consort
during that time. She is consdiered by the VedAs as 
the fragrant garland of MandhArA flowers that adorn 
their heads.She is the One eulogized by the eternal VedAs.
Her Lord , Sriman NaarAyaNan considers Her as His most 
cherished wealth.She grants all the boons desired by 
Her devootees like  a veritable KaamadhEnu. May This  
Divine Consort of the Lord, Sri MahA Lakshmi of wonderous 
qualities reside always in my mind !

Best wishes,
