St. Anthony Help me Please

Sometimes I feel that perhaps something is not important enough to pray for. For example that my poison ivy rash clears quickly. I do believe, however, that God wants us to rely on him for everything and I also believe we have many saints who are more than happy to pray for our needs - just as we are happy to pray for the needs of others when they ask us. St. Anthony is a favorite saint of mine. So many times when something is lost I find it shortly after saying a short prayer to him such as St. Anthony help me please. The other day I was looking for audio tapes I had borrowed for too long. I was ready to go on line to purchase new ones. My cousin was with me and she said, "We need St. Anthony." She began praying aloud for his help and immediately I found the tapes. I think God was telling us something! Thank you Lord for helping me find the tapes. Thank you for the intercession of your saints in our lives and thank you for hearing our prayer. Amen

I think you are right - God does want us to rely on him in all things - both big and small.

And I've had St. Anthony help me too when something was lost.

I hope your poison ivy clears up soon. (Is there a patron saint of poison ivy?)
