During discipleship I found this prayer through St Joan of Arc’s intercession and I wanted to share it with you all. It makes my heart really happy and gives me hope in the paternal love of the Father, the limitless compassion of the Son, and the ignited friendship of the Holy Spirit.
Sit with this prayer. Re-read it. Illustrate it. Tape it on your mirror. Handwrite it and mail it to a friend. Frame it for your mom. Talk about it with your dad. The more we talk about and share prayers, the more our lives become them.
Dear Sweet Patron Saint,
I implore you in the name of God
to intercede on my behalf and guide me.
Help me to be strong when people are against me and question my belief in God.
Help me to stand by my faith
and my decisions concerning my faith.
I wish to do only God’s will,
and I beg of you, O Patron Saint,
to help keep me on His true path,
and guide me in His will.
I need friends now, more than ever before,
and I choose God as my first and foremost best friend, above all others.
But I also choose you as a close and special friend to relate to and to talk to.
Please counsel me by any means necessary that is in the will of God to do.
Please let me have the wisdom and understanding to receive his message
and the patience and virtue to listen so that I may understand his word. Amen.
