Prayer to Saint Andrew
O Glorious Saint Andrew, you were the first to recognize and follow the Lamb of God. With your friend Saint John you remained with Jesus for that first day, for your entire life, and now throughout eternity. As you led your brother Saint Peter to Christ and many
others after him, draw us also to him. Teach us to lead others to Christ solely out of love for him and dedication in his service.
Help us to learn the lesson of the Cross and to carry our daily crosses without complaint so that they may carry us to Jesus. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Anne
Good Saint Anne, you were especially favored by God to be the mother of the most holy Virgin Mary, the Mother of our Savior.
By your power with your most pure daughter and with her divine Son, kindly obtain for us the grace and the favor we now seek.
Please secure for us also forgiveness of our past sins, the strength to perform faithfully our daily duties and the help we need to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary. Amen.
 
Prayer to Saint Anthony of Padua
Dear Saint Anthony, you are the patron of the poor and the helper of all who seek lost articles. Help me to find the object I have lost
so that I will be able to make better use of the time I will gain for God's greater honor and glory. Grant your gracious aid to all people who seek what they have lost - especially those who seek to regain God's grace. Amen.
 
Prayer to Saint Barbara
O Holy Saint Barbara, through your inspiration, intercession, and by your example of courage, keep me chaste,
fervent and always ready to do God's Will. Please help us by your prayers. Amen
Reflection: Pray often to be protected from a sudden and unprovoked death; and, above all, that you may be strengthened by the
Holy Viaticum against the dangers of your final hour.
 
Prayer to Saint Benedict
Admirable Saint and Doctor of Humility, you practiced what you taught, assiduously praying for God's glory
and lovingly fulfilling all work for God and the benefit of all human beings.
You know the many physical dangers that surround us today, often caused or occasioned by human inventions.
Guard us against poisoning of the body as well as of mind and soul, and thus be truly a "Blessed" one for us. Amen.
 
Prayer to Saint Brendan
Dear Saint, to mention your name is to recall much traveling. It was in relation to voyages that
you emerged as a popular Saint. The Irish became great travelers thus spreading their faith everywhere.
Protect not only mariners but all who go down to the sea in ships. Amen.
 
Prayer to Saint Camillus of Lellis
Most wonderful Saint, your compassion for the sick and the dying led you to found the Servants of the Sick.
As the Patron of nurses and hospital workers, infuse in them your compassionate spirit. Make hospitals resemble the inn
in Christ's Parable to which the Good Samaritan brought the wounded man saying:
"Take care of him and I will repay you for it." Amen.
 
Reflections by Saint Catherine of Genoa
Reflection - The constant thought of purgatory will help us not only to escape its dreadful pains,
but also to avoid the least imperfection which hinders our approach to God. Reflection ~ If men only knew in what
manner Our Lord will recompense in the other world the good we do here, our understanding, our memory and our
will would be occupied only with good works, no matter what it might cost to perform them.
St. Catherine of Genoa
 
Prayer of Saint Catherine LaBoure
Whenever I go to the chapel, I put myself in the presence of our good Lord, and I say to him, "Lord, I am here. Tell me what you
would have me do." If he gives me some task, I am content and I thank him. If he gives me nothing, I still thank him since I do not
deserve to receive anything more than that. And then, I tell God everything that is in my heart. I tell him about my pains and my joys,
and then I listen. If you listen, God will also speak to you, for with the good Lord, you have to both speak and listen.
God always speaks to you when you approach him plainly and simply.
 
 
 
Prayer to Saint Cecile (Cecilia)
Dear Saint Cecile, one thing we know for certain about you is that you became a heroic martyr in fidelity to your divine Bridegroom. We do not know that you were a musician but
we are told that you heard Angels sing. Inspire musicians to gladden the hearts of people by filling the air with God's gift of music and reminding them of the divine Musician
who created all beauty. Amen.
 
 
Prayer to Saint Charles Borromeo
O Saintly reformer, animator of spiritual renewal of priests and religious, you organized true seminaries and wrote a standard catechism. Inspire all religious teachers and authors of
catechetical books. Move them to love and transmit only that which can form true followers of the Teacher who was divine. Amen.
 
Prayer to Saint Christopher
Dear Saint, you have inherited a beautiful name - Christbearer - as a result of a wonderful legend that while carrying people across a raging stream you also carried the Child Jesus.
Teach us to be true Christbearers to those who do not know him. Protect all drivers who often transports those who bear Christ within them. Amen.
 
Saint Daniel the Prophet
"Then Daniel praised the God of Heaven and said: "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he
sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in
darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers..."Daniel 2: 19-23
 
Prayer to Saint David (Psalm 61)
"1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Selah
5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.
7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day."
For the director of music.With stringed instruments. Of David.
 
Prayer to Saint Dennis
(One of The Fourteen Holy Helpers)
INVOCATION OF THE HOLY HELPERS
Fourteen Holy Helpers, who served God in humility and confidence on earth and are now in the enjoyment of His beatific vision in Heaven; because thou persevered till death
thou gained the crown of eternal life. Remember the dangers that surround us in this vale of tears, and intercede for us in all our needs and adversities. Amen.
 
Prayer to Saint Dominic
Wonderful Saintly Founder of the eloquent Order of Preachers and friend of Saint Francis of Assisi, you were a fiery defender of the Faith and a fighter against the
darkness of heresy. You resembled a great star that shone close to the world and pointed to the Light which was Christ. Help astronomers to study the stars and
admire their wonderful Maker, proclaiming:"Give glory to God in the highest."Amen.
Prayer to Saint Dymphna
O God, we humbly beseech You through Your servant, St Dymphna, who sealed with her blood the love she bore You, to grant relief to those who suffer from mental
afflictions and nervous disorders, especially {NAME}. Saint Dymphna, helper of the mentally afflicted, pray for us!

Prayer to Obtain Graces Through the Intercession of Saint Faustina
O Jesus, who filled Saint Faustina with profound veneration for Your boundless Mercy, deign, if it be Your holy will, to grant me, through her intercession, the grace for which I fervently pray.My sins render me unworthy of Your Mercy, but be mindful of Sister Faustina's spirit of sacrifice and self-denial, and reward her virtue by granting the petition which, with childlike trust, I present to You through her intercession. Then say one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be and conclude by saying: Saint Faustina, pray for us.

 
Saint Florian's Prayer
Dear God, Through the intercession of our patron, Saint Florian, have mercy on the souls of our comrades who have made the supreme sacrifice in the performance of their duty, and on all who have gone before us after years of faithful discharge of their responsibilities which now rest on ourselves. Give us Grace to prepare each day for our own summons to Thy tribunal of justice. Into Thy hands O Lord, I commend my spirit. Whithersoever Thou callest me, I am ready to go. Merciful Father of all men, save me from all bodily harm, if it be Thy will, but above all, help me to be loyal and true, respectful and honorable, obedient and valiant. Thus fortified by virtue, I shall have no fear,
for I shall then belong to Thee and shall never be separate from Thee. Amen.
 
Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury,pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
 

Prayer to Saint Genesius
Dear Genesius, According to a very ancient story, when you were still a pagan, you once ridiculed Christ while acting on the stage.
But, like Saul on the road to Damascus, you were floored by Christ's powerful grace. You rose bearing witness to Jesus and died a great martyr's death. Intercede for your fellow actors before God that they may faithfully and honestly perform their roles and so help others to understand their role in life and thus enabling them to attain their end in heaven. Amen.

 

Prayer Composed by Saint Gianna
Jesus, I promised You to submit myself to all that You permit to befall me, make me only know Your will. My most sweet Jesus, infinitely merciful God, most tender Father of souls,
and in a particular way of the most weak, most miserable, most infirm which You carry with special tenderness between Your divine arms, I come to You to ask You, through the love and merits of Your Sacred Heart, the grace to comprehend and to do always Your holy will, the grace to confide in You, the grace to rest securely through time and eternity in
Your loving divine arms. Amen

 
Prayer in Honor of Saint George
O GOD, who didst grant to Saint George strength and constancy in the various torments which he sustained for our holy faith; we beseech Thee to preserve, through his intercession,
our faith from wavering and doubt, so that we may serve Thee with a sincere heart faithfully unto death. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
 
Prayer to Saint Gerard
Most Blessed Trinity, I, Your child, thank You for all the gifts and privileges which You granted to Saint Gerard, especially for those virtues with which You adorned him on earth and the glory which You now impart to him in heaven. Accomplish Your work, Oh Lord, so that Your kingdom may come about on earth. Through his merits in union with those of Jesus and Mary, grant me the grace for which I ask {mention your petition}. And you, my powerful intercessor, Saint Gerard, always so ready to help those who have recourse to you, pray for me. Come before the throne of Divine Mercy and do not leave without being heard. To you I confide this important and urgent affair {mention your petition}. Graciously take my cause in hand and do not let me end this prayer without experiencing the effects of your intercession.  Amen.

in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrage, sacrileges and indifference with which he is offended. And by the infinite merit of his Most Sacred Heart and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of you the conversion of poor sinners, especially {name of person}. Amen.

 

Prayer to Saint Joan of Arc for Faith
In the face of your enemies, in the face of harassment, ridicule, and doubt, you held firm in your faith. Even in your abandonment, alone and without friends, you held firm in your faith. Even as you faced your own mortality, you held firm in your faith. I pray that I may be as bold in my beliefs as you, St. Joan. I ask that you ride alongside me in my own battles. Help me be mindful that what is worthwhile can be won when I persist. Help me hold firm in my faith. Help me believe in my ability to act well and wisely. Amen

Amen

in our day to help, support and guide us into the Way of Salvation. -Troparion

 
Prayer to Saint Lawrence
Precious Lord, Saint Lawrence protected the Church’s money from the Roman Empire by giving it to the poor. When the greedy prefect of Rome demanded the Church’s treasures, Saint Lawrence presented to him the poor and the sick, announcing, "This is the Church's treasure!" I ask him to pray for me to learn how to use material goods only for Your glory. Guide me as I share what I’ve stored up so that I make good decisions about where it should go.

Your people as precious gems in Your crown of glory. Saint Lawrence, pray for me. Amen.

so many in our day. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Mark the Apostle
Heavenly Father, Saint Mark ran away in fear when Jesus was arrested, but after the resurrection and the descent of the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room, he became a writer of the Faith, and he helped Saints Paul, Barnabas, and Peter build the new Church. Take my fears, O Lord, and replace them with a zeal for evangelization using the gifts of the
Holy Spirit. Fill me to overflowing with the Spirit, so that I may boldly and powerfully serve my parish community and the ministries into which You send me. Give me faithful partners

forever with him in heaven. Amen.

Police Officer's Prayer to Saint Michael
Saint Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police, who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional eyes on your earthly force. Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgment. Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores, strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences with the devil, that the police officer's lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration. And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all the people. Amen.
 

Prayer to Saint Nicholas (of Myrna)
O Good Jesus, Saint Nicholas was an archbishop who dearly loved to help the poor, especially young children. He worked to protect the innocent and minister to those who were wronged. Eventually, the stories of his kindness evolved into the legend of Santa Claus. I ask him to intercede for all children, especially those in my family, and to pray for a good season of Advent. May we use these days to remember the poor ones as we decide how to spend our money. May we teach our children to follow the example of this saint. Dear Lord, help us to honor You in all that we do during the holidays. Saint Nicholas, pray for us. Amen.

 
A Prayer to Padre Pio
Beloved Padre Pio, today I come to add my prayer to the thousands of prayers offered to you every day by those who love and venerate you. They ask for cures and healing, earthly and spiritual blessings, and peace for body and mind. And because of your friendship with the Lord, he heals those you ask to be healed, and forgives those you forgive. Through your visible wounds of the Cross, which you bore for 50 years, you were chosen in our time to glorify the crucified Jesus. Because the Cross has been replaced by other symbols, please help us to bring it back in our midst, for we acknowledge it is the only true sign of salvation. As we lovingly recall the wounds that pierced your hands, feet and side, we not only remember the blood you shed in pain, but your smile, and the invisible halo of sweet smelling flowers that surrounded your presence, the perfume of sanctity.
Padre Pio, may the healing of the sick become the testimony that the Lord has invited you to join the holy company of Saints. In your kindness, please help me with my own special request: (mention here your petition, and make the sign of the Cross). Bless me and my loved ones. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
 
Saint Patrick Prayer for God's Protection and Christ's Presence
As I arise today, may the strength of God pilot me, the power of God uphold me, the wisdom of God guide me. May the eye of God look before me, the
ear of God hear me, the word of God speak for me. May the hand of God protect me, the way of God lie before me, the shield of God defend me, the host of God save me. May Christ shield me today... Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit, Christ when I stand, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me. Amen.  Saint Patrick of Ireland, Bishop and Missionary
 

Prayer to Saint Paul the Apostle
Great convert and Apostle of the Gentiles, you became Christ like and knew only Christ Crucified. Though extremely learned, you relied completely on the Wisdom received from the Spirit and taught from the abundance of your heart. Instruct modern evangelists - those who preach Christ to others. Let them realize that their actions speak louder than any words they may use. Teach them to use their talents in conveying their God-given message but to rely above all on the prompting of the Spirit. Amen.

 

Prayer to Saint Peregrine
Dear Apostle of Emilia and member of the Order of Mary, you spread the Good News by your word and by your life witnessed to its truth. In union with Jesus crucified,
you endured excruciating sufferings so patiently as to be healed miraculously of cancer in the leg. If it is agreeable to God, obtain relief and cure for
{name of patient} and keep us all from the dread cancer of sin. Amen.

 
Prayer to Saint Peter the Apostle
O Glorious Saint Peter, because of your vibrant and generous faith, sincere humility and flaming love our Lord, he honored you with singular privileges and especially
leadership of the whole Church. Obtain for us the grace of a living faith, a sincere loyalty to the Church, acceptance of all her teaching, and obedience to all her precepts. Let us
thus enjoy an undisturbed peace on earth and everlasting happiness in heaven. Amen.
 

Prayer for the Protection of Saint Raphael
O God who in Thy ineffable goodness hast rendered blessed Raphael the conductor of thy faithful in their journeys, we humbly implore Thee that we may be conducted by him
in the way of salvation, and experience his help in the maladies of our souls. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

 

Prayer to Saint Rita
Dear Rita, model Wife and Widow, you yourself suffered in a long illness showing patience out of love for God. Teach us to pray as you did. Many invoke you for help, full of confidence in your intercession. Deign to come now to our aid for the relief and cure of {name of sufferer}. To God, all things are possible; may this healing give glory to the Lord. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Robert Bellarmine
Blessed Jesus, Saint Robert is the patron saint of catechumens because he wrote two catechisms and devoted much of his time to teaching the Faith to children.
He also wrote a revised version of the Bible. I ask him to pray for those in my church who teach the Faith, and for their students. Bless the teachers, Lord, and anoint the minds of those receiving instruction to understand it so powerfully that their lives are changed by it forever. Raise up more opportunities (including parish missions) for church members to learn
the Faith more deeply, and inspire large numbers of people to attend these events. Saint Robert, pray for us. Amen.

 
Prayer to Saint Rose of Lima
Loving God, Saint Rose was a mystic and visionary who received invisible stigmata, and yet she often suffered from the feeling that You were distant. Despite how lonely this felt, she persisted in believing that You were indeed with her all the time, and she continually prayed to grow stronger in her ability to trust You. I ask her to intercede for me when my feelings
tell me You are not near, and to pray most powerfully for all those I know who are right now experiencing loneliness because they are unaware of how close You are to them.
Open our hearts to the reality of Your intimacy. Saint Rose, pray for us. Amen.
 
   
Prayer to Saint Sebastian
Dear Commander at the Roman Emperor's Court, you chose to be also a soldier of Christ and dared to spread faith in the King of Kings - for which you were condemned to die. Your body, however, proved athletically strong and the executing arrows extremely weak. So another means to kill you was chosen and you gave your life to the Lord. May athletes be always as strong in their faith as their Patron Saint so clearly has been. Amen.
 
Prayer to Saint Stephen the Martyr
Loving God, Saint Stephen was one of the first deacons in the Church. The Apostles ordained him with six others because they needed ministers who would oversee the needs of the poor and the widowed. His holiness was so evident that when he preached to his enemies, his face glowed brightly like an angel’s. I ask him to pray for those who have been called to a life of service as ordained deacons. O Lord, help them to be a sign of Your love in their parishes and in the world where they live and work.
Bless them with a vision of their ministry that stirs them to passion and tireless effort. Saint Stephen, pray for us. Amen.
 

Prayer to Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus
Dear Little Flower of Lisieux, how wonderful was the short life you led. Though cloistered, you went far and wide through fervent prayers and great sufferings.
You obtained from God untold helps and graces for his evangelists. Help all missionaries in their work and teach all of us to
spread Christianity in our own neighborhoods and family circles. Amen.

 
Prayer to Saint Thomas Aquinas
Spirit of Wisdom, Saint Thomas’ family misunderstood his devotion to studying the Faith. Because of their disapproval, he had to join the Dominicans secretly. His family kidnapped him, intent on changing his mind, but his trust in You kept his hope alive. A year later, You freed him to rejoin the friars. Help me to persevere in my desire to learn, study, and understand theology and the wisdom of the Faith. Share with me the same gift You gave to Saint Thomas for grasping the teachings of the Bible and Sacred Tradition. Make sure that nothing
and no one holds me back. Saint Thomas, pray for me. Amen.
 

Prayer of Saint Thomas More
Give me the grace to long for Your Holy Sacraments, and especially to rejoice in the presence of Your body, sweet Savior Christ,
in the Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen. Saint Thomas More

 

Prayer to Saint Timothy
Dear Saint, well known for your gentleness, you were a most faithful disciple of Saint Paul, and like him traveled much to bring the Good News to all people.
The Letters Paul wrote to you reveal your zeal and inspire us with confidence in you. You too were cast into prison and you too gave your life for Christ. So with confidence we dare to ask, please obtain relief for {name of sufferer}, if it be God's will. Amen.

 

Prayer to Saint William
Saint William pray for us that we might have our sight restored - that we might see with the eyes of our hearts and souls God's presence in and around us.
Teach us to nourish our spiritual journeys with prayer so that we too might be instruments of God's light and love to others. In the spirit of Saint Benedict
help us to be people of hospitality who let our work become prayer. Let us find God in each other. Amen.
