1. Prayer to Saint Anne
Good Saint Anne, obtain for me an increase of faith in the great mystery of the Holy Eucharist. Help me to see in this great sacrament Christ our High Priest, making real for me the saving grace of His death on the cross; feeding my soul with His Flesh and Blood so that I may live in Him and He in me; producing the unity of the people of God and gathering His Church together. By your powerful intercession with God, help me to center my life around the altar that I may inherit the promise of The Lord: "He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood, as life everlasting." Amen.
2. Prayer to Saint Anne de Beaupré
Remember, O glorious and good Saint Anne, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help and sought they intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
behold, I cast myself at thy feet, and beseech thee, by the great prerogative of
being the Mother of the Queen of Heaven and Grandmother of Jesus, come to my aid
with thy powerful intercession, and obtain from Almighty God through the ever
Blessed Virgin Mary, this special favor which I beg from thee,
(mention your request).
Cease not to intercede for me until, through Divine Mercy, my request may be granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace one day to behold my God face to face and with thee and Mary and all the saints praise and bless Him through all eternity. Amen.
3. Devotional Prayer to Saint Anne
Glorious St. Anne, filled with
compassion for those who invoke thee, and with love for those who suffer,
heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at thy feet and
humbly beg of thee to take the present affair which I recommend to you under
your special protection. Please recommend it to your Daughter, the Blessed
Virgin Mary, and lay it before the throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to
a happy issue. Do not cease interceding for me until my request is granted.
(Here ask for the favor you wish to obtain)
Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day of beholding my God face to face, and with you and Mary and all the Saints, praise and blessing Him to all eternity.
Good St. Anne, mother of her who is our life, our sweetness and our hope, pray to her for us, and obtain our request. (Repeat 3 times)
4. Prayer for St. Anne's Intercession
Hail, O Good St. Anne, who first responded to the needs of Mary, Mother of our Savior and Queen of Angels. Hail to you and to your husband, St. Joachim, who watched over her infancy, presented her to the Lord in the Temple and, according to your promise, consecrated her to the service of Almighty God.
Hail St. Anne, good mother! I rejoice in the marvels you continually perform because they encourage all to seek your heavenly intercession. And so with faith and confidence I now place these needs before you, (mention your request).
Good St. Ann, by the great power God has given you, show yourself my mother, my consoler, my advocate. Implore for me from Divine Providence the guidance and protection I need through life. Console me in my trails. Strengthen me in my struggles. Help me bear all my crosses. Deliver me from danger during times of trouble. Assist me at the hour of death and open to me the gates of Paradise. Amen.
5. Prayer to St. Anne de Beaupré
Saint Anne, I began my journey and became a pilgrim so that I might get close to you. In the midst of my human travels, I come to you with my weariness and my dreams, with my painful struggles as well as the many things for which I am thankful.
Saint Anne, you experienced the joy of bringing the Immaculate Virgin into the world, and holding Jesus our Savior in your motherly arms. May you be praised for having witnessed these marvels. May you also be praised for the love which you constantly show us.
Teach us to be open to serving others, to be willing to give and forgive, to treasure silence and to pray. To your care, we entrust those individuals who are most dear to us, as well as our world on its quest of hope.
Lead us to Jesus so that our entire life may become a pilgrimage towards the Father. Good Saint Anne, patroness of pilgrims, pray for us. Amen.
