Saint Anthony of Padua

Prayer to Saint Anthony of Padua

Glorious Saint Anthony, my friend and special protector,

I come to you with full confidence in my present necessity.

In your overflowing generosity you hear all those who turn to you.

Your influence before the throne of God is so effective that the Lord

readily grants great favors at your request.

Please listen to my humble petition

in spite of my unworthiness and sinfulness.

Consider only your great and constant love for Jesus and Mary,

and my desire for their glory and mercy. I beg you to obtain for me the grace

I so greatly need, if it be God's will and for the good of my soul.

I place this earnest petition in the care of the little mission children so

that they may present it to you along their innocent prayers.

Bless me, powerful Saint Anthony, in the name of the Father,

and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
