List of Prayers to the Saints
God of mercy, you inspired Saint Clare with the love of poverty. By the help of her prayers may we follow Christ in poverty of spirit and come to the joyful vision of your glory in the kingdom of heaven.
Saint Clare, ardent lover of Jesus really present in the Most Blessed Sacrament, lead all people to Jesus. Obtain faith for the unbeliever, hope for the discouraged, strength for the weak, courage for the fearful, and love for Jesus for all in need. Gather our wounded Church, our suffering world, and all people into your loving heart and lift us all up to Jesus with your absolute confidence in His merciful love.
Help us to be as you were - peaceful, kind, gentle, strong, patient, and persevering in the face of difficulties. Trusting in your powerful intercession, we confidently praise and thank God for the blessings received.
Praise, glory, wisdom, and thanksgiving, honor, power, and might to our God forever and ever. Amen.
