Prayer for Saint Anne’s Intercession

St. Anne

O Holy Saint Anne, you were especially favored by God to be the mother of the most Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of our Savior. By your powerful intercession in union with your most pure daughter and with her divine Son, kindly obtain for us the grace and the favor we now seek. Please secure for us also forgiveness of our past sins, the strength to perform faithfully our daily duties and the help we need to persevere in the love of God and the imitation of Jesus our Lord. Amen.

St. Anne: A Powerful Intercessor and Protectress

Great saints and Doctors of the Church including Saint Augustine, Saint Thomas Aquinas, Saint John Damascene, and Saint Teresa of Ávila, had devotions to St. Anne. In the words of St. Teresa of Ávila, “We know and are convinced that our good mother St. Anne helps in all needs, dangers and tribulations.” Among other things, she is the patroness of the childless, the help of the pregnant, and the protectress of widows. She is a powerful intercessor for single women who seek a Godly husband, married couples, expectant mothers and married couples who have difficulty conceiving, as well as all who have grown old. Those who honor St. Anne will receive her aid in every need especially, at the hour of their death.
