Oh Blessed Saint Anthony! The grace of GOD has made you a powerful advocate in all necessities; and, the patron for the restoration of anything which is lost; or has been stolen. I ask you, today, with child-like love; and heartfelt confidence to please help me recover what I have lost. You have been blessed with the gift of helping so many people who have come to ask your assistance in the recovery of lost goods. You were the counselor of the corrupt, you have been the comforter of the afflicted, the healer of the sick, the raiser of the dead, the deliverer of the captive, the refuge of all who have asked you for help. I am asking you, Saint Anthony to help me in my personal affliction. I am trusting what I have lost to your care in the same secure hope, that you will restore it to me; if it is for the greater glory of GOD; and, to the spiritual welfare of my soul, that I may praise and thank you, in time and eternity, for your glorious intercession in my behalf. Amen. Oh, Saint Anthony, something is lost and cannot be found, if you find it, please give it to me; and, oh, how happy, I will be.
Remember to thank Saint Anthony after you have recovered what was lost.
