Powerful Prayer to Saint Clare of Assisi

O glorious Saint Clare!

God has given you the power of working miracles continually, and the favor of answering the prayers of those who invoke your assistance in misfortune, anxiety, and distress; we beseech you, obtain for us from Jesus, through Mary, His Blessed Mother, what we beg of you so fervently and hopefully, if it be for the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our souls. Amen. Saint Clare of Assisi, Pray For Us

POWERFUL PRAYER TO SAINT CLARE OF ASSISI

O Blessed Saint Clare, your life shines like a beacon and cast its light down the ages of the Church to guide the way of Christ.

Look with compassion on the poor and humble who call on you for help. As you bow before your Eucharistic Lord in Heaven, speak to Him of my afflicted body and my broken spirit. Ask Him to heal me and to wash away my sins in His precious Blood.

Great Servant of Christ, remember the needs of my family and all those I pray for. Defend us from everything that would threaten our Holy Catholic faith.

Hear the cry of the poor and make it a song of intercession, rising from your poor heart to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, our Healer, our Savior, and our Lord. Amen.

Prayer:

I look up and I behold the Lord, Clare says to me, “Gaze upon Him, consider Him, contemplate Him, I put this more simply: behold, hold, enfold. I behold the Lord I see His outstretched hands I see the blood from His wounds. I see the love in the eyes of Jesus. I see His gracious acceptance of me. Jesus has come out of the tomb – He still has the scars, but now they are glorious, with the glory of heaven. Still looking at the Lord, I reach out and touch Him. I hold the Lord – and I am held in His love. Love enfolds It is no longer I that live, but Christ that lives in me. I am secure in the Lord. I can look out, now, through the Lord’s eyes. I can see the world as He created it, in His mercy, I can see my sisters and brothers with His love, and I can worship the Father through the eyes of the Son in the Love of the Holy Spirit.
