Prayer to St. Anthony asking for help in finding missing items:

Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find (mention your petition) which has been lost. At least restore to me peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss.

To this favor I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.

THE MIRACLE PRAYER TO 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!

Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be.
