Prayer to St. Anthony

O good and gentle St. Anthony,
your love of God and concern for His creatures made you worthy,
while on earth, to possess miraculous powers.
Miracles waited on your word,
which you were always ready to request
for those in trouble or anxiety.
Encouraged by this thought,
I implore you to obtain for me (your request.)
The answer to my prayer may require a miracle.
Even so, you are the saint of miracles.
Gentle and loving Saint Anthony,
whose heart is ever full of human sympathy,
take my petition to the Infant Savior
for Whom you have such a great love,
and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.
