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

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. Cheesy

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)

Lord God,
I beg for the gift of living the Joy of Christ Risen.  I ask for the gift to live grateful for all that is in my life world, my life, and myself.  And I ask for the great gift of bringing the Good News to others, in many forms.
Amen

O God, who by the patience of Thine only begotten Son has crushed the pride of the old enemy, grant to us, we pray, that we may devoutly recall what He suffered for us, and by His example, bear with calm minds the troubles that come upon us.

O Jesus, our Master, strip us of all vain self-complacency, which would prevent us from sitting at Your feet and humbly listening to Your Words.
This was first line of closing prayer in first meditation by Archbishop Emile Guerry in his book In the Whole Christ.

O God, Light and Shepherd of Souls, You established St Heribert as Archbishop (Cologne, 988-1021) to feed your flock by his word and form it by his example.  (On this feast day) Help us through His intercession to keep the Faith he taught. Amen.

O God, You raised up Your Priest, St Vincent Ferrier for a ministry of evangelical preaching (even allowing him to refuse the cardinal's hat).  Grant that we may see him reigning in Heaven...Amen.  May we celebrate his feast today.  Ibid, prior.

O God, through the intercession of St Isidore the Holy Farmer grant that we may overcome all feelings of pride. May we always serve You with the humility which pleases You, through his merits and example.  Amen.  Ibid, prior.
