to St. Martha
(pray for 9 consecutive Tuesdays)
St. Martha, I resort to thy aid and protection. As proof of my affection and faith, I offer thee this light, which I shall burn every Tuesday. Comfort me in all my difficulties and through the great favors thou didst enjoy when the Saviour was lodged in thy house, intercede for my family, that we be provided for in our necessities. I ask of thee, St. Martha, to overcome all difficulties as thou didst overcome the dragon which thou hadst at thy feet. Amen.
Pray 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, 1 Glory be
A Prayer to St. Martha
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.
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.
feast day: July 29
