Title: Short Prayers
Post by: Shin on March 17, 2010, 10:05:09 PM
We're especially in need of short one line prayers for Saints' Prayers, and a great lot of them.

If you come across any collections of these or want to contribute them, please do. :)


"Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death." :D

St. Philomena, virgin and martyr, pray for us to have the purity of heart and courage to shed our blood for Christ's sake!

This is an old thread, but I just had a short prayer in my head and was looking for
A place to put it! 

Someone once told me when they
were young, they and their Mother would sing,

"Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom"

They would sing it together at bedtime.  :+: :+: Zzzz
I thought that was so nice.
I just love to hear stories of growing up in a Catholic home :)

Oh! Short Prayers specifically to Saints! Ok, I just reread those marching orders..... ;D
This one is described as well known:

St.Joseph, assist me by your powerful intercession
and obtain for me from your divine son all spiritual blessings
through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
Amen.

I am enjoying saying these short prayers!

St. Joseph, model and patron of those who love the Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us!

Dear St Lucy, whose name doth signify the Light, we come to thee filled with confidence: do thou obtain for us a Holy Light that shall make us careful not to walk in the ways of sin, nor to remain enshrouded in the darkness of error...

O great Saint Dominic, who, inflamed with Divine Love, didst find thy delight in prayer and intimate union with God; obtain for us to be faithful in our daily prayers, to love our Lord ardently, and to observe His Commandments with ever increasing fidelity...

Do you especially like St. Dominic Eschator?

S. Dominic ora pro nobis!

Saint Dominic has often seemed a puzzle to me, because both he and his order seem to get much less "press" over the years than the other "great" orders, even though my casual tabulations list many great Dominican Saints.  It seems curious he's named patron saint of astronomers and scientists; I suppose I should try to find something about that but don't think I've ever looked.  I've thought many times about buying a few books about the larger orders, but my poor wife worries I have too many books already that I either haven't read or can't remember, and no room for any more.

How is your wife doing by the way eschator?

Yes I agree there is less material out about St. Dominic than one might expect given his influence!

My bride still struggles with constant pain, but faces it with hope and is remarkably active and good natured, thank God.  We deeply appreciate all the prayers that keep blessing her.

May God console her. She sounds like a wonderful example, bearing her cross.

Many prayers!  :+: :+: :+:

May God the Father who made us, bless us. 
May God the Son send His healing among us.
May God the Holy Spirit move within us.
May God give us eyes to see God,
ears to hear God,
and hands to bring God's work into the world.
May we walk with God
and preach the Word of God to all.
Amen
This was reported by chausa.org as a prayer of St Dominic.

O Faithful God,
Your goodness and love is an invitation to us
to become like You-a source of goodness
and love to other people.
Grant us the guidance and strength
to persevere in responding to your invitation
so that we will grow in closer intimacy with You
and with Your wondrous Creation.
Amen
From a card by Dominican Sisters of Hope

Pray for us, St Anne, that we may be (made?) worthy of the promises of Christ.  This is from a document called A Litany for Private Use.  I was tempted to leave out the word made because I'm not sure what it implies about who does the making.  This is perhaps a small concern; I like the prayer and have great reverence for St Anne.

It's a common phrase, there's no cause for concern. :D

The same phrase, "that we may be made worthy" is used in prayer to Saint Benedict and the Blessed Virgin Mary, in general, any powerful intercessor's prayer may help to make us worthy of the promises of Christ.

Many thanks again for wise comments.  You sent me off to find my Rule of St Benedict, a couple prayer books, and my Book of our Holy Mother.  I am still looking for the prayers you mention, but this is a good search so I won't ask for your help for a while, at least.
I find some with similar requests:
St Alphonsus Maria de Liguori:...Like a star on life's dark ocean
shining o'er the wave,
Thou canst guide my bark to harbor;
Thou my soul canst save.
St Francis (probably of Assisi)
Hail, Mother of God,
I venerate you for the Holy Virtues which,
through the Grace and light of the Holy Spirit,
you bring into the hearts of the unfaithful
to change them to faithful children of God.
(from CA Forum)
St Ephrem the Syrian
...Help me correct my faults and my failings.
Then, set free from the night of sin,
may I be worthy to glorify and exalt you without reserve.
(from Prayers to Mary 1987, Sacred Congregation for Divine Worship)
