A Couple of Minor Things

Hey all,

Nothing big or important, just two things:

  1. Please pray to Saints Anthony and Jude that they help me, through their intercession to the Lord, find my lost wallet (St. Anthony since he’s the patron Saint of finding lost objects and St. Jude since he’s the patron Saint of hopeless causes, and I’m not feeling optimistic about my chances right now…).

That is MUCH appreciated, since my wallet has some important stuff in it. Thanks!

Also, while I’m here:

  1. Please pray for the cast and creative team of my school play. We’re getting pretty close to performance time and things are getting hectic and a bit stressful.

These are not urgent prayer requests, but I’ll very much appreciate it if you take some time out to say a couple of prayers for me.

Thank you all VERY much!

-Marc Anthony

Dear Lord bless Marc and his plans, please help him find his wallet which has things of value in it for him. Dear St Anthony and St Jude please pray for Anthony. Amen

I am praying for your intentions.

I’m happy to pray for your intentions! :gopray2:

A lost wallet is a cause for worry and consternation.

So… praying!

Most holy Apostle Saint Jude.
Faithful servant and friend of Jesus.
The name of the traitor,
who delivered the beloved Master,
into the hands of His enemies,
Has caused you to be forgotten by many,
But the Church honors and invokes you universally
as the Patron of hopeless cases.
Of things despaired of.
Intercede for Marc Anthony.
He has lost his wallet and asks for your help in recovering it.
Make use I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you,
To bring visible and speedy help, where help is almost despaired of.
I promise you O blessed Saint Jude,
to be ever mindful of this great deed
and will always encourage devotion to you.
Amen!

Well, here’s a remarkable story of answered prayer.

MY wallet-was never found. At least not yet (not giving up hope yet!). Here’s what happened instead:

I was going through my room today, just cleaning stuff out. The lost wallet wasn’t even in the back of my thoughts. In my closet, I found an envelope with my name on it.

I open it up. What’s inside? FIFTY-FIVE DOLLARS. Fifty-five dollars I didn’t know I had.

It’s not as much as I had in the original wallet, but man-I’ll take it!

Thanks for the prayers guys. God listens!

A very important ingredient to answered prayer is “trusting and believing that the prayer is answered” ! If you start on a negative note, the end will be the same. I am glad for your fifty-five dollars, better than nothing. :smiley:

Saint Jude
Help of the helpless,
Aid us in our distress!

Saint Jude
Help of the helpless,
Aid us in our distress!

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen!

Help of the helpless,
Aid us in our distress!

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Amen!

PATER NOSTER,
qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
