Prayer is something that we learn and it is also a gift from God. It is a combination of our own personal effort and the work of God within us. It establish-es a real communion with God that forms into the relationship intended by him for each one of us.

PRAYER IMPLORING THE INTERCESSION OF ST. ANTHONY
Oh Blessed Anthony,/ kind and gentle Saint,/ your ardent love for God,/ your exalted virtuous life / and your immense charity towards your brothers and sisters,/ made you worthy to possess miraculous powers /which were given to no other Saint./ Your single word was enough / to perform any desired miracle./ The anxious pleading of any bitter trial /was never addressed to you in vain./ To the sick you bestowed the gift of convalescence,/ to those who begged you to make them find their lost articles,/ you restored them back,/ to those suffering and sorrow stricken/ you showed your tender compassion / and those who were pronounced as dead / you gave them a lease of new life.
Encouraged by this thought,/ convinced of the efficacy of your powerful intercession / and filled with confidence,/ I implore of you to obtain for me / this special favour that I now ask for…..(please place your request here)
O Blessed Anthony,/ you, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, / whisper this prayer of mine into the ear of Infant Jesus / who loved to linger in your arms./ Constantly intercede for me / and for my dear and near ones / that we may all be worthy followers of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Master. Amen.
