This is a set colloquial expression, lit. "God bless and protect".
It would be better to provide a little bit more context.
Good luck!

菩薩(or 觀世音菩薩)保佑我;菩薩救救我


Explanation:
In Chinese, god is pu2 sa4 (Buddha). When people pray for help, they pray for blessing (bao3 yo4) or help (jio4 jio4) of the Merciful Goddess (guan1 shi4 yin1 pu2 sa4), the only female Buddha in Buddhism. Most people simply pray for help of pu2 sa4, which means the Merciful Godess.
