Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your divine son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, our Lord; so that having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
Oh St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while he reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss his fine head for me, and ask him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen
Most holy Apostle, Saint Jude Thaddeus, friend of Jesus, I place myself in your care at this difficult time. Help me know that I need not face my troubles alone. Please join me in my need, asking God to send me: consolation in my sorrow, courage in my fear, and healing in the midst of my suffering. Ask our loving Lord to fill me with the grace to accept whatever may lie ahead for me and my loved ones, and to strengthen my faith in God's healing powers. Thank you, Saint Jude Thaddeus, for the promise of hope you hold out to all who believe, and inspire me to give this gift of hope to others as it has been given to me.

Saint Martin De Porres
O BLESSED SAINT MARTIN DE PORRES,
humble servant of the Lord,
who embraced faith with ardor,
and with charity and immense love
you filled the hearts of the needy,
of the most unfavored ones,
and were the consolation of souls and bodies,
taking great care of the sick
and working thousands of wonders and great miracles
so as to favor those who resorted to you asking for help;
I plead that you be my intercessor
and you help me with a miracle in my economy.
My great protector Saint Martin de Porres,
you who occupy a principal place in Glory,
who followed without doubt the steps of the Lord,
and you felt so much devotion and love for the Virgin Mary:
speak to Them, ask Them for their valuable mediation,
tell Them what I suffer for my difficulties and burdens,
and implore Them to send me a solution
for my pains and necessities.
O charitable saint, saint of miracles,
I need to feel your powerful intercession:
I implore you with my heart in my hand,
and with all my hope and confidence,
that you make it possible
that this grave economic crisis,
through which my family is going through, depart from us at once.
Give me please, prodigious Martin,
what now is so lacking and which I so much need:
(ask with much faith what you need to obtain)
Grant me this miracle which I humbly ask you for,
dissipate from my home all lack and scarcity,
make it so my prayers and supplications
come before the Virgin and the Lord,
since from Them,
who are always filled with compassion and mercy,
I know I can hope for all.
With the same faith and hope I ask
that you bring me the spirit of charity and dedication
so that I lovingly serve God,
and that I know how to do good for my brethen,
just as many times you have done.
Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Saint Therese of Liseux
O Little Therese of the Child Jesus,
Please pick a rose for me
From the heavenly gardens
And send it to me
As a message of love.
O little flower of Jesus,
Ask God today to grant the favors
I now place with confidence
In your hands.
(Mention your specific requests)
help me to always believe,
As you did,
In God's great love for me,
So that I might imitate your
"Little Way" each day. Amen
Saint Michael the Archangel
Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Saint Anthony of Padua
O Holy St Anthony, the gentlest and kindest of Saints, your burning love of God, your exalted virtue, and your great charity towards your fellow creatures, made you worthy, when on earth to possess miraculous powers such as were given to no other saint.
Miracle waited on your word, and that word you were ever ready to speak at the request of those in trouble.
The anxious prayer of bitter trial was never addressed to you in vain.
To the sick you gave back health; you restored what was lost; the sorrow stricken were the objects of your tender compassion; even the dead you raised to life when the wounded heart cried out to you from the depths of its bitter anguish.
When on earth nothing was impossible with you, except not to have compassion on those in distress and sorrow.
Encouraged by this thought, and convinced of the efficacy of your holy intercession, we kneel before your holy image, and full of confidence, we implore you to obtain for us (here mention your request).
The answer to this our prayer may require a miracle. Even so, are you not the Saint of Miracles, who, when on earth, had but to speak the mightiest wonders were wrought!
O gentle and loving St Anthony, you whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whispers our prayer into the ears of the Infant Jesus, who loved to linger in your arms.
One word from you and our prayer will be granted. O, speak but that word and the gratitude of our heart will ever be yours!
Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be.
Dear God, You generously blessed Your servant,
St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
with the gifts of the Spirit.
You marked his body with the five wounds
of Christ Crucified, as a powerful witness
to the saving Passion and Death of Your Son.
Endowed with the gift of discernment,
St. Pio labored endlessly in the confessional
for the salvation of souls.
With reverence and intense devotion
in the celebration of Mass,
he invited countless men and women
to a greater union with Jesus Christ
in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
Through the intercession of St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
I confidently beseech You to grant me
the grace of (here state your petition).
Glory be to the Father… (three times). Amen.

O Most Holy Mother of my Jesus, you who saw and felt the extreme desolation of your dear Son, help me in my own time of desolation. And you saints of Heaven who have passed through this trial, have pity on those who are suffering it now and pray that I be given the grace to be faithful until death. And in a particular way, dear St. Bernadette, I ask for your intercession for the intentions on my heart (insert special intentions).
