Prayer In Time Of Great Need

Saint Francis Saint Bernardine MonasteryO holy Saint Anthony, gentlest of saints, your love for God and charity for His creatures made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers.

Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety.

Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (mention your request).

The answer to my prayer may require a miracle; even so, you are the Saint of Miracles.

O gentle and loving Saint 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.
