Prayer for Saint John Bosco's Intercession

Saint John Bosco

Saint John Bosco, Apostle of Youth,
Friend of the destitute,
Teacher in the ways of God,

Your dedication to empowering the needy,
and enlightening the ignorant inspires us still.
Help me to work for a better world,
where the young are given the chance to flourish,
where the poor’s dream for justice can come true,
and where God’s compassion is shown to be real.

Intercede for me as I bring my needs to you and to
Our heavenly Mother, the Help of Christians. Amen.

O God, who raised up the Priest Saint John Bosco as a father and teacher of the young, grant we pray, that, aflame with the same fire of love, we may seek out souls and serve you alone. 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.
