Prayer in Honor of Saint Anne
O Glorious St. Anne, you are compassionate toward those in need who invoke your heavenly intercession. Burdened with life’s difficulties, I place myself before you, and ask that you assist me with the petitions and intentions I now recommend to your special protection.
(Here mention your requests.)
Place my concerns before Our Lord Jesus Christ, and seek the loving aid of your
daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Please continue interceding for me until my requests are granted.
Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day seeing Almighty God face to face, with you and Mary and all the saints, honoring and praising God through all eternity.
Pray for us, good St. Anne. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Gracious God, who chose St. Anne to bring into the world the mother of Your only Son. Mercifully grant to us who devoutly honor her memory, the grace of happiness in this life, and the joy of life with You for all eternity. Amen.
Grandparent’s Prayer to Saint Anne
O Good Saint Anne, help me to recognize the great dignity of being a grandparent. Direct my paths to understand and experience all the graces God wishes for me in this vital role within my family.
When all is well, grant that I may fully share in the joys and accomplishments of all my loved ones. When life is difficult, lead me to be a source of encouragement, support and hope for everyone. During times of illness and suffering, give me the strength to guide my family to firmly trust in God’s loving care and kindness.
As you did, Saint Anne, help me to know and practice all the ways God wishes for me to be an encouraging presence of faith, charity and unity within my family. Watch over and protect me, my children and my grandchildren. Inspire us to lead good and virtuous lives.
Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary, I ask for God’s continued blessings on my family, that dedicated to God’s service on earth, all the members of my family may one day share together in the eternal happiness of God’s unending love in Heaven. Amen.
