Suffering from "chemo-brain" I think I pray to St. Anthony on an almost daily basis. I forget where I put something 2 seconds after I've put it down. I've always said the prayer learned as a child, as posted earlier: "St. Anthony, St. Anthony please come around...."

My mother was always psychic about helping people find things too. Now that she is passed I have a team in heaven helping me find misplaced items, St. Anthony and my dear mother.

They rarely fail me...except for now: I "hid" a new computer program out of fear of being robbed (I've been robbed several times). I wanted to install it last night...it is nowhere to be found. Both St. Anthony and my mom must be busy with others' petitions right now.

I'll also pray to St. Another for other "lost" causes now that I have a better understanding of the scope of his heavenly influence.

Thanks for adding this prayer, the simplest things can really get lost in our busy lives. I forget to pray to the saints and I never am sorry when I do.

Amen to both of your prayers. I would add that may God please bring peace and forgiveness to those unfortunate women who have abortions.

And I add Amen! Perhaps we need St. Anthony and St. Jude to be praying for the lost understanding of the preciousness of life at all stages.
I still have an 18 year old at home, but both my husband and I are facing the certainty that elderly parents have limited time left with us. And then there are the Grands. The youngest will be two next month. My daughter has some physical problems left over from a surgery. It fixed the problem mostly, but she will always have to be careful of stress, both physical and mental. But, if they have another wee one, he or she will be greeted with love and open arms.
St. Anthony, bring back the lost in heart. St. Jude, help us to feel that such beliefs as pro-life and pro-family are not hopeless.

You're welcome.

St. Anthony of Padua is a favorite saint of many people. Called the “Wonder Worker” because of the many miracles with which God has favored him, St. Anthony has traditionally been the refuge of all who have lost things, whether temporal or spiritual.

Thank you, Georgia. DH and I are converts to the faith, and I knew that St. Anthony is the patron saint of lost objects, but I had never heard this prayer. The only one I knew was that one, "St. Anthony, St. Anthony, please come around. Something is lost and it cannot be found". I've always felt a little silly with that prayer, but he listens to it for sure! I do believe that St. Anthony is a great help in finding lost things. DH isn't really comfortable with some of the prayers to saints yet, but he'll tell me, "Go pray to that guy who always helps you find things. I've lost my brown jacket and need to wear it today"!

St. Anthony, when you prayed, your stolen book of prayers was given back to you. Pray now for all of us who have lost things precious and dear. Pray for all who have lost faith, hope or the friendship of God. Pray for us who have lost friends or relatives by death. Pray for all who have lost peace of mind or spirit. Pray that we may be given new hope, new faith, new love. Pray that lost things, needful and helpful to us, may be returned to our keeping. Or, if we must continue in our loss, pray that we may be given Christ’s comfort and peace. Amen.
