Should you offer prayers for a Saint’s intention?

Could some kind soul please advise whether you can pray (e.g. dedicate a Rosary) to a Saint? Not for their intercession or favour, but for their intentions, in the same manner you would for a living person?

Many thanks.

When Our Lady comes in revelations, often She will request prayers for a certain intention. If the intention of the Saint can be known, from this it appears that we can pray for it.
