Prayer to St. Anne, our Patron Saint

Good Saint Anne,
you were especially favored by God
to be the mother of the most holy Virgin Mary,
and thus grandmother of our Savior Jesus Christ.
By your intimacy with your most pure daughter and her divine Son,
kindly obtain for us the graces that we seek.
Secure for us the Strength to perform faithfully our daily duties
and the help we need to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary.
