Prayers for the Intercession of Saint Dymphna, Patron of Mental Illness





Lord God, Who has graciously chosen Saint Dymphna to be the patroness of those afflicted with mental and nervous disorders, and has caused her to be an inspiration and a symbol of charity to the thousands who invoke her intercession, grant through the prayers of this pure, youthful martyr, relief and consolation to all who suffer from these disturbances, and especially for A's wife.

Prayers to Saint Joseph



O Great Saint Joseph, you were completely obedient to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Obtain for me the grace to know the state of life that God in his providence has chosen for me. Since my happiness on earth, and perhaps even my final happiness in heaven, depends on this choice, let me not be deceived in making it.

Obtain for me the light to know God's Will, to carry it out faithfully, and to choose the vocation which will lead me to a happy eternity. Amen

+       +       +

Glorious Saint Joseph, you are the patron of all who work. Obtain for me, please, the grace to work conscientiously and to put devotion to duty before my selfish inclinations. Help me to labor in thankfulness and joy, for it is an honor to employ and to develop by my labor the gifts I have received from almighty God. Grant that I may work in orderliness, peace, moderation and patience without shrinking from weariness and difficulties. I offer my fatigue and perplexities as reparation for sin. I shall work, above all, with a pure intention and with detachment from self, having always before my eyes the hour of death and the accounting which I must then render of time ill-spent, of talents unemployed, of good undone, and of empty pride in success, which is so fatal to the work of God. For Jesus through Mary, all in imitation of you, good Saint Joseph. This shall be my motto in life and in death. Amen.

+       +       +

O Saint Joseph, we pray to you for those who are out of work, for those who want to earn their living or support their families.

You who are the patron of workers, grant that unemployment may vanish from our ranks; that all those who are ready to work may put their strength and abilities in serving their fellowmen and earn a just salary.

You are the patron of families; do not let those who have children to support and raise lack the necessary means. Have pity on our brothers and sisters held down in unemployment and poverty because of sickness or social disorders. Help our political leaders and captains of industry find new and just solutions. May each and every one have the joy of contributing, according to his abilities, to the common prosperity by an honorable livelihood. Grant that we may all share together in the abundant goods God has given us and that we may help underprivileged countries.

Amen.

Prayer to Saint John of God


Dear Convert, after a sinful life, through the power of God's holy Word you learned to love your fellow human beings. Self-sacrificing, you founded the Society of Hospital Brothers. No wonder the Church made you the patron of patients and nurses. That is why we confidently have recourse to you. Please give assistance to Kayla's son, and teach us to be kind like you. 
Amen.

Almighty and eternal God, may Your grace enkindle in all of us a love for the many unfortunate people whom poverty and misery reduce to a condition of life unworthy of human beings.

is now and ever shall be, 
world without end.

Prayer Request for Workman's Compensation Hearing



Could you please remember me in your prayers, I have kept a constant prayer with Our Lord, and have been saying the rosary every day, even so if you pray for a wonderful outcome to this most difficult chain of events that led me to file for workman’s compensation my family would appreciate that all so much. Thank you!!!!



Dear Sacred Heart of Jesus,

I am asking Our Merciful God to help my family with our financial situation. I was injured at my job, and because of complications from surgery with my eyes, was not able to return to work. I was let go, so in turn I filed a workman compensation case. This has been a very emotional time for our family. There is another hearing set for March 10, 2011, I am not sure if this will be the last one but I pray that the Judge will rule in our favor, we have many medical and other bills that need to be paid, this will help in many ways.  Please Dear Lord have mercy on us and grant our request. 

The Lord is my shepherd

I place all my trust in Jesus Christ

Amen 

Thank you

Robert

Prayer For The Intercession of Saint 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 healings, 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 forgive 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 healings 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: For the recovery and healing of Anthony. (Here 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.

Prayer To Saint Anthony of Padua

Saint Anthony, you are glorious for your miracles and for the condescension of Jesus who came as a little child to lie in your arms. Obtain for us from His bounty the grace which we ardently desire. You were so compassionate toward sinners, do not regard our unworthiness. Let the glory of God be magnified by you in connection with the particular request that we earnestly present to you. We pray for the healing of Alliena. 

As a pledge of our gratitude, we promise to live more faithfully in accordance with the teachings of the church, and to be devoted to the service of the poor whom you loved and still love so greatly. Bless this resolution of ours that we may be faithful to it until death. 

Saint Anthony, consoler of all the afflicted, pray for us.

I pray to you with all my heart and my faith in you, that you will help our family. I am not able to work, due to severe eye problems. I am currently in the process of going thru workman's compensation for my injuries. My case will be heard over the next several weeks, starting on 9/16/2010. I pray that I will win this case.

God your love is endless.

Prayer to Saint Lucy of Syracuse



Dear Sicilian Virgin and Martyr, whom the Church recalls in Eucharistic Prayer I, you valiantly rejected great promises and resisted several threats in remaining faithful to your beloved Lord. For centuries Christians have invoked you particularly when suffering from eye trouble. So now we implore your assistance on behalf of Robert. We also ask you to teach us to imitate you and to avoid spiritual blindness of any kind. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Teresa of Avila

Dear wonderful Saint, model of fidelity to vows, you gladly carried a heavy cross following in the steps of Christ who chose to be crucified for us.
