Provided it is said in faith and for a particular spiritual benefit
St. Anthony of Padua is known by many as a miracle-worker. A countless number of people over the centuries have prayed to him in faith and have received a miraculous response to their prayers.
Similar to the “Unfailing Prayer to St. Joseph,” this prayer to St. Anthony, according to many, “has never been known to fail, provided that the request is for one’s spiritual benefit or for those whom we are praying for.”
It is important to remember God always answers our prayers. His response may not always be what we expected or wanted, but he always grants us exactly what we need.
Here is the Unfailing Prayer to St. Anthony that many continue to pray with a deep trust that God will provide for them in their need.
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. Encouraged by this thought, I implore you to obtain for me (request).
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. The gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. Amen.
