Dear saint,

You know, dear saint, the value of what I have so foolishly lost. It is a thing that means everything to me: the most treasured possession of my mother’s family for generations—a little engraved gold locket with a portrait inside and “To those who love us” inscribed on the back. If you can help me find it again, I will be eternally grateful.

You know how much it means to me.

Dear Saint Anthony, Patron Saint Of Lost Things,

I am writing to you today because I have lost something very important to me. It means a lot to me, and it is hard not having it around. I know that this may seem like a small thing to most people, but it’s important to me! My family has been praying for years for help finding what we lost, or at least knowing what happened to our things so we can move on with our lives.

I hope that you can help me find what was lost before so that my family can finally be whole again.

Help me to find it.

If you’re out of ideas for locating your lost item(s), try praying to Saint Anthony. A common prayer from the Catholic tradition, “St. Anthony, patron of lost things,” is often said when one has lost something important to them, such as a loved one or their keys (the latter being one of the most common reasons we turn to St. Anthony). The prayer goes like this:

“Dear St. Anthony, please come and find my (lost item). I ask this in the name of God. Amen.”

You can also use this same basic structure with more specificity: “Dear St. Anthony, please come and find my missing wallet/cell phone/yarn store receipt/etc.”

My faith tells me that you will hear my prayer, and bring back to me my lost item(s).

If you are reading this and have lost something, the most important thing for you to realize is that your faith in God is the most important thing. You should always pray to God, using the words of this prayer. And when you do pray, always be confident that your lost item(s) will be returned to you.

With great confidence, I ask this favor through Christ our Lord. Amen.

St. Anthony is a powerful prayer for lost things. It can help you find a lost item, or get something back that was stolen from you.

St. Anthony is the patron saint of Brazil and Portugal, as well as travelers and missing persons. Many local churches are dedicated to him including Sts Peter and Paul Church in York, England where there is an annual celebration on the Monday after Easter Day (Easter Monday).

The traditional prayer requests St Anthony’s intercession with God on behalf of himself/herself when praying for a favor – such as finding something they’ve lost – but it can be adapted to fit any situation where it would be beneficial to ask someone else’s assistance with our prayers.[1][2]

Before we talk more about St. Anthony and the female Saint of Lost Things, let’s first talk about how important prayer is when looking for a lost item..

Prayer is a powerful tool that can help us in many ways, including finding lost things. It’s important to know that prayer is not just something we do when we want something or need help. Prayer is a way we communicate with God and let him know how we feel about things in our lives. God hears our prayers, he understands what we are going through and he wants to help us find peace and happiness in the midst of difficult situations.

The most well-known prayer regarding lost items comes from St Anthony of Padua, who was born in 1195 AD in Lisbon Portugal (yes that’s right – Portugal). He was known for his holiness as well as his care for animals – which makes sense because both dogs and cats love catnip! St Anthony is often represented holding a piglet because it symbolizes one of the miracles attributed to him: The Miracle of the Piglet

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom, the power and glory forever and ever amen (Amen).
