Prayer to Ask a Special Favor

God our Father, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, you called St. Eugene de Mazenod to gather priests and brothers as Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate to announce the Gospel especially among the poor and neglected. May we ourselves be inflamed with his zeal for announcing the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Savior and receive through his intercession the special graces of vocations to the Oblate way of life, and for those we ask for at this time.

(Here pause to mention your petitions)

Our Father …

Hail Mary …

Glory be …

St. Eugene de Mazenod, pray for us

NOVENA PRAYER TO SAINT EUGENE

St. Eugene, By your example, touch me to see Jesus in others, to help those in need, and to have the courage to do God's will. I ask you to intercede on my behalf for a special need. May God, through your intercession, guide me to accept the difficulties in my life and to work toward a happy and healthy solution. May I accept God's will in my life with strength and love. I ask this through His Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

God our Father, you filled Eugene de Mazenod, your bishop, with apostolic virtue in the evangelization of the people. Fill our hearts with the same fervor that we may dedicate ourselves to the service of the Church and the salvation of all. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen.
