Before beginning any Prayer, first read it over and absorb what you will be saying. Then gather your thoughts and choose the specific words that you will be using to ask for your special request or intention, when appropriate.
For a more enriching experience, go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
For 9 Tuesdays, light a candle over this prayer and pray: 5 our Father’s, 5 Hail Mary’s, % Glory Be’s. When finishing this prayer, blow out the candle and keep it in store for the other Tuesdays. On the last (9th) Tuesday, let the candle burn to the end.
Ask for two requests very difficult to be fulfilled and one request for your general improvement. Every Tuesday you will distribute 3 copies of this Novena. If you do not have anybody to give copies to, leave them in the church by the image of Saint Anthony, if possible otherwise leave the copies in the church.
O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, your love for God and Charity for His creatures made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (state your specific request or intention here!)
The answer to my prayer may require a miracle, even so, you are the Saint of Miracles. O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. Amen.
Say the "Our Father, the "Hail Mary" and the "Glory Be"
