Prayer to Saints Peter and Paul

I thought that since it is the feast day of St. Peter and Paul, that it is only fitting to post a prayer to them! Hope you like it and will pray it with me today!

Prayer to St. Peter

O glorious Saint Peter, who, in return for thy strong and generous faith, thy profound and sincere humility, and they burning love, wast rewarded by Jesus Christ with singular privileges, and, in particular, with the leadership of the other Apostles and the primacy of the whole Church, of which thou wast made the foundation stone, do thou obtain for us the grace of a lively faith, that shall not fear to profess itself openly, in its entirety and in all of its manifestations, even to the shedding of blood, if occasion should demand it, and to sacrifice of life itself rather than surrender.

Obtain for us likewise, a sincere loyalty to our holy mother, the Church; grant that we may ever remain most closely and sincerely united to the Roman Pontiff, who is the heir of thy faith and of thy authority, the one, true, visible Head of the Catholic Church, that mystic ark outside of which there is no salvation. Grant, moreover, that we may follow, in all humility and meekness, her teaching and her advice, and may be obedient to all her precepts, in order to be able here on earth to enjoy a peace that is sure and undisturbed, and to attain one day in heaven to everlasting happiness. Amen.

Short Prayer to St. Paul

St. Paul, Holy Preacher to Gentiles, Help us to do what the Lord asks of us just as you did. Help us to convert others by our actions just as you taught many gentiles. Help us to always be open to God's call and to follow Him where ever he leads us.

St. Paul, in times of difficulty and trials help us to continue to trust in the Lord and remember that He is always with us and is taking care of us.Help us to not give up but to continue the great race and finish the great fight! Help us to remember that He will give us the victory over evil and will always protect us. St. Paul help us to be messengers of God's word just as you where. Grant this our Lord Jesus Christ who calls us all to do His will now and forever! Amen!

  1. I've noticed that there are many young people who seem to have no difficulty with prayers using 'thee' and 'thou' etc. I must say I make an effort to avoid them. Is there something wrong with me? hehehe
