Prayer to St. Augustine Our Patron Saint
St. Augustine, our patron saint, you were converted from a sinful life through grace, to love God with all your heart. Teach us to turn away from our own selfish wants and desires. Help us to turn our hearts towards God and live each day to serve others. Show us the way to be kind, loving and compassionate to all persons in need of our help.
Lord, fill our hearts with the seed of your word. Help it to grow in us. Through the intercession of St. Augustine, teach us to receive your word with respect and follow your commandments with love. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord and Saviour.
