Before beginning this 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.
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.
Did you lose something? St. Anthony is well-known for assisting those who have lost something. Keys, papers, even a relationship!
NOVENA TO ST. ANTHONY - EXAMPLE 1
(pray for 9 days or 9 hours straight)
St. Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find (state your specific request or intention here!) which has been lost.
At least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.
