Most holy St. Anthony, Beloved Friend of Jesus, I place myself in your heavenly care. Be with me, especially in lifeís troubles and difficulties. Intercede before the Lord for me, so that I may confidently know I do not face my problems alone. I join my prayers to yours, O Great Saint, as I ask God to give me consolation in times of sorrow, courage when I am afraid, and healing from all the ills that afflict me. Obtain for me from God, Most High, the grace to accept whatever is Godís holy will for me and my loved ones. Strengthen my faith so that I will never despair, but always have hope in Godís healing presence and power in my life. Amen.
