|Saint Martha Pray for Us!
Prayer to St. Martha
as your Patron Saint
Saint Martha, whom I have chosen as my special patron, pray for me that I, too, may one day glorify the Blessed
Trinity in heaven. Obtain for me your lively faith, that I may consider all persons, things, and events in the light of almighty
God. Pray, that I may be generous in making sacrifices of temporal things to promote my eternal interests, as you so wisely
Set me on fire with a love for Jesus, that I may thirst for His sacraments and burn with zeal for the spread
of His kingdom. By your powerful intercession, help me in the performance of my duties to God, myself and all the world.
Win for me the virtue of purity and a great confidence in the Blessed Virgin. Protect me this day, and every
day of my life. Keep me from mortal sin. Obtain for me the grace of a happy death. Amen
Saint Martha, pray for us that we might serve Jesus better. Help us to
overcome our distractions and worries to listen to His words and be present to Him this day. Amen
Collect: Father, your Son honored St. Martha by coming to her home as
a guest. By her prayers may we serve Christ in our brothers and sisters and be welcomed by you into heaven, our true home.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever
and ever. Amen.

A Prayer to St. Martha
O blessed St. Martha, your faith led Jesus to proclaim, “I am the resurrection and the life”; and faith let
you see beyond his humanity when you cried out, “Lord I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God.” With
firm hope you said, “I know that God will give you whatever you ask of him”, and Jesus called your brother Lazarus
back from the dead. With pure love for Jesus you welcomed him into your home.
Friend and servant of our Saviour, I too
am “troubled about many things”. (mention your intentions) Pray for me that I may grow in faith, hope and love,
and that Jesus, who sat at your table, will hear me and grant me a place at the banquet of eternal life. Amen
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
Sanctus Míchael Archángelus
Prínceps gloriosíssime caeléstis milítiae, sancte Míchael
defénde nos in proelio advérsus príncipes et
potestátes, advérsus mundi rectóres tenebrárum harum,
nequítiae in caeléstibus.
Veni in auxílium hóminum, quos Deus ad imáginem
similitúdinis suae fecit, et a tyránnide
diáboli emit prétio
Te custódem et patrónum sancta venerátur Ecclésia; tibi
trádidit Dóminus ánimas redemptórum
Deprecáre Deum pacis, ut cónterat Sátanam sub pédibus
nostris, ne ultra váleat
captívos tenére hómines et Ecclésiae
Offer nostras preces in conspéctu Altíssimi, ut cito
misericórdiae Dómini, et apprehéndas
dracónem, serpéntem antíquum, qui est diábolus et
sátanas et ligátum mittas in
abýssum, ut non sedúcat
