unfailing prayer to Saint Anthony

Prayer:
"Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints"
O Holy St. Anthony,
gentlest of Saints,
your love for God and Charity for His creatures
made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers.
Encouraged by this thought,
I implore you to obtain for me (request).
O gentle and loving St. Anthony,
whose heart was ever full of human sympathy,
whisper my petition into the ears of the sweet Infant Jesus,
who loved to be folded in your arms;
and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.
Amen.

prayer to Saint Anne

Prayer:
Good St. 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.

until we meet again prayer (a Jesus Christ's Easter Blessing)

Prayer:
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rain fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

God our Father,
you sent Saint Patrick

Prayer:
[Oh God,]
Grant us a common faith
that man shall know bread and peace -

not only in our own lands, but throughout the world.
[Amen.]

dedication of the day prayer (Saint Ignatius de Loyola)

Prayer:
Father,
I dedicate this new day to you;
as I go about my work.
I ask you to bless those with whom I come in contact.
Lord,
I pray for all men and women
who work to earn their living;
give them satisfaction in what they do.
Spirit of God,
comfort the unemployed and their families;
they are your children and my brothers and sisters.
I ask you to help them find work soon.
Amen.

prayer (to Saint Therese de Lisieux) for guidance

Prayer:
Govern by all Thy Wisdom, O Lord,
so that my soul may always be serving Thee
as Thou dost Will,
and not as I may choose.
Do not punish me, I beseech Thee,
by granting that which I wish or ask if it offended Thy Love,
which would always live in me.
Let me die to myself, so that I may love Thee.
Let me live to Thee, Who art in Thyself, the True Life.
Dear St. Therese,
guide me in your Little Way,
so that I may ascend to the heights and happiness of Heaven.
Amen.
