    St Anthony thank you for all you have done and continue to do. St. Anthony of Padua, Glorious for your miracles And for the condescension of Jesus In coming as a little child to repose in your arms, obtain for me from his bounty the grace which I ardently desire. You who were so compassionate towards sinners, regard not my unworthiness, but the glory of God, that it may be magnified by you in connection with the particular request which I now earnestly present to you. Please hear my petition for a healthy baby boy. As a pledge of my gratitude, I beg you to accept my promise to live more faithfully in accordance with the teachings of the Church, and to be devoted to the service of the poor whom you loved and still love so greatly. Bless this my resolution, that I may be faithful to it even until death. St. Anthony, consoler of all the afflicted, Pray for me. St. Anthony, whom the infant Jesus so much loved and honored, Pray for me. Amen.

    St. Anthony, I lost my husband at an early age to death. I loved him dearly for 23 years. I am asking that you pray that God would give me another chance to be married to a Godly man who would love me and my children as much as he did. Thank you for your prayers. I believe God is listening now.

    "Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints"
    O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, your love for God and Charity for His creatures, made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Encouraged by this thought, I implore you to obtain for me (that you help heal my broken relationship. I am in emotional, mental and physical anguish with our current status, and I feel despondent and weak. I am clueless on how to mend our relationship and the only hope I have is you. I humbly beg you help J and I as we continue to fight and hurt each other. I ask that you fill his head and heart with compassion and love, and rid him of the anger and hate he feels towards me). O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms; and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. Amen.

    Thank you so much most miraculous St. Anthony!!! Ever since I started praying the Novena in your honor and praying the Rosary in your honor my premature baby Mila has been getting better. She is truly a testament to your miracles. I've continued to pray to you and you have not stopped interceding for us. We heartfully thank you and will be eternally greatful for providing her with the strength she needed to withstand this long and lengthy time of healing.

    Saint Anthony I have always trusted and believed in your intercession. I know you are here to help me and guide me an you give me strength in my most difficult moments. I come to you again in need of help, I am weak and I nee to be strong. If he has found his way please give me the strength to accept this and move on, help me to rebuild my life and be at peace but if this is not his way please bring him back to me. I ask that you intercede and that God bless me with a good life, with someone to share it with and above all with the faith and strength to follow God's teaching and to have a good heart. Please Saint Anthony help me and ask God to grant me peace. Please bless he who holds my heart, protect him and forgive him his sins. He is a good man but takes life and those who love him for granted, opne his heart and don't let him hurt another how he hurt me. Thank you Saint Anthony.

    St Anthony, I am in unemaginable pain an desperately need your help and intercession. My love, my partner in life and my best friend has left me. I am lost without her. She saved my life and I was prepared to show her for the rest of hers as her husband that she is my everything. She misunderstands me. I have brought her down with my negative talk about work and personal struggles and she needs to know that I'm sorry and that I never meant to dump so much on her. She also needs to know that those things don't mean anything to me compared to what we have together and to our future. Please, have mercy on me and ask for her to be sent back in my life so that I can show her and you just how serious and dedicated I have always been to her and her happiness. I love her with all my heart and respect her even more. You have always brought me peace. I'm in am very bad place.
