St francis prayer to Mary

I always think that the best prayers are short, simple, and sincere. This is a prayer to St. Francis of Assisi that I learned when I was younger and have used ever since. It’s not fancy, but it does contain some key elements:

Lord, grant that I may

  • Pray for the needs of others
  • Pray for the needs of yourself
  • Pray for the needs of your family
  • Pray for the needs of your friends

Always be willing to ask for your help

You ask for help because you are not capable of doing everything by yourself.

When we’re able to ask for assistance, it’s a sign that we can trust others and ourselves. When we have faith in God’s power, anything is possible! We shouldn’t be afraid of asking others for their time or attention—especially if they make us feel supported and loved.

When you’re looking for guidance or direction on a difficult decision you’re trying to make, remember these three key elements: clarity, trust and faith. Clear your mind so that you know exactly what situation needs addressing; then trust that it will all work out perfectly according to God’s plan; finally have faith (trust) in yourself as well as others whom may help guide them through this process with clarity and confidence knowing full well that it is never too late even when making decisions about our future plans such as marriage or career path choices

Pray at all times

Prayer to Our Lady of Perpetual Help

St. Francis de Sales, in his Introduction to the Devout Life, says that Mary “is the refuge of sinners,” and that she will hear the prayers of all who call upon her. Therefore, let us never forget to pray at all times, especially when we are troubled or distracted by our own personal sorrows and trials. We should pray in the morning, evening and at night; before going to bed at night; when we wake up in the morning; while driving alone in a car towards our place of work or home; during meals if possible (especially breakfast); during work breaks–or even during work itself if there are no other means available for doing so! We should also pray whenever we feel sad about something bad happening (or about something good happening) in our lives: whether it’s losing someone close unexpectedly because they were killed by an act of terrorism overseas (as happened recently), or having lost something valuable due from negligence on part of another person such as a close friend who borrowed something without returning it back within agreed timeframe period agreed upon between both parties beforehand…these kinds situations occur frequently these days unfortunately!

In fact sometimes people have needs which only God can fulfill – but still refuse Him access into their lives because they do not ask Him first hand before making decisions which affect everyone around them negatively too…so just think twice before closing off any doors you might have open right now–remember this prayer is meant specifically for those who seek help through Mary’s intercession with Jesus Christ Himself!

Help those who are in trouble or need our prayers

When we pray for others, it shows that we care. We can pray for those who are in trouble or need our prayers.

For example:

  • Pray for the sick and those who are suffering
  • Pray for your family and friends
  • Pray for yourself

Try to bear my troubles with joy and not despair

The prayer to St. Francis is regarded by many Catholics as the most powerful and effective prayer they know. It’s also one of the simplest and easiest to use.

Patron saint of strength prayer

To pray this prayer, you can just repeat it over and over again in your head or out loud, or you can write it down and then read it every day until your situation changes for the better (or perhaps even longer).

If you’re asking for divine intervention with a specific request in mind, such as healing from an illness, finding employment when you’re unemployed, etc., then simply substitute whatever word(s) fit that request into each of these sentences: “Grant me this grace [insert word]”; “May God grant me this grace [insert word].” For example: “Grant me patience”; “May God grant me patience.”

Be generous toward others who are in trouble or need our prayers

  • Be generous toward others who are in trouble or need our prayers.
  • Be generous with our time.
  • Be generous with our money.
  • Be generous with our prayers, which should be reverent and thoughtful. We should pray for ourselves, for our loved ones, for the pope and bishops, for the priests and religious, for all people at all times and places (especially those who are suffering), for the poor and needy of every sort and description: “Prayer is nothing else but an intimate sharing between friends.” We must also pray unceasingly to God’s Mother Mary that she may intercede on behalf of sinners—ourselves included—before her Son Jesus Christ Who loves us so much that He gave His life so we could have eternal life (John 15:13).

Don’t forget to pray for help from and show charity to others in need.

Prayer to St. Francis of Assisi

Dear Mother of God, you are the Queen and Mistress of all creation. I adore thee and venerate thee and give thee thanks for all thy blessings. I praise thee for that thou art the glory of heaven and the joy of earth! To thee alone, who have borne the Creator in thy womb and have nourished him at thy breast, is given power to intercede with God for us poor sinners.

Because thou art our Mother, we also call upon thee as our Advocate before the throne of grace; make haste to help me who am so miserable a sinner; teach me how I should love my neighbor as myself; give me true repentance through grace; pardon my sins which I now repent having committed against Thee because Thou hast shown Thyself so merciful toward us in giving us this most sweet name: Our Lady Help Us In Our Need!

As we have seen, St Francis of Assisi was a great believer in prayer and charity. He showed us how both can bring joy into our lives. Pray always with the intention of helping others who are in need, and try to be generous toward them by offering your prayers and good deeds whenever possible
