Please Pray that our outdoor Christmas decoration is returned

Please Pray that our outdoor Christmas decoration is returned

I realize that this is a trivial and rather silly Prayer request but with Prayers and faith God can do anything.

The night of Dec.30th/10/Thursday or Dec.31st/10/Friday our outdoor Christmas decoration a “Frosty the Snowman” was stolen from our front yard.

We’ve reported this to the police and they informed us that there were many Christmas decorations that were stolen or vandilized that night.

As you may or may not know, our city was hit by a flood this past summer making it really difficult for everyone–we had to throw out A LOT of stuff…This was really hard for us especially my mom because she lost her mother.

Some might say, it’s just an "ornament’ but the fact that someone came into our yard with us being home makes me feel really uneasy.


Prayer to find what is lost

St. Anthony, when you prayed, your stolen book of prayers was given back to you. Pray now for all of us who have lost things precious and dear. Pray for all who have lost faith, hope or the friendship of God. Pray for us who have lost friends or relatives by death. Pray for all who have lost peace of mind or spirit. Pray that we may be given new hope, new faith, new love. Pray that lost things, needful and helpful to us, may be returned to our keeping. Or, if we must continue in our loss, pray that we may be given Christ’s comfort and peace. Amen.

Seeking a Lost Article

Dear St. Anthony, you are the patron of the poor and the helper of all who seek lost articles. Help me to find the object I have lost so that I will be able to make better use of the time that I will gain for God's greater honor and glory. Grant your gracious aid to all people who seek what they have lost---especially those who seek to regain God's grace. Amen.

Even though, I feel uncomfortable I would like to offer Prayers for the person(s) who stole the outdoor Christmas decoration from our front yard.

St. Michael the Archangel, Pray for those who steal. Amen.

Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.

I shall pray that your stolen Christmas ornament is returned or at least found somewhere.

Sadly at this time of year a lot of drunken pranks take place. On the night of 30th someone threw eggs at our bedroom window. We don’t have enemies so it was not personal but it was still unneccessary.

I shall pray that your privacy be respected and this act will not be repeated.

God bless you

Hail Mary conceived without sin.
