You cannot pay your bills with holy water and Hail Mary luck [Oh my!]

from Aesop Rock – Holy Smokes Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You (the Church) can’t avoid legal repercussions by praying, falling on tradition, and or luck anymore. Aesop is also being critical of the common Christian belief that praying is the solution to all problems and suggests this to be a foolish concept, saying that real-world issues can’t be solved by prayer and high-hopes.
