    St Brigid of Ireland, pray for me that i heal all illnesses and prevent any evil curses that may come along my ways, You had a kind heart for the poor and less fortunate people and you embraced whole heartedly and pray for me that i follow your ways in the best ways possible. I ask all this through our Lord Jesus Christ who reigns forever and ever. Praise and blessed is his name.
