Prayer to St. Mark

Columban Daily Prayer
April 25, 2022

O glorious St Mark,
through the grace of God our Father,
you became a great Evangelist,
preaching the Good News of Christ.

May you help us to know Him well
so that we may faithfully live our lives
as followers of Christ.

Obtain for me I pray you,
lively faith, firm hope and burning love;
patience in adversity, humility in prosperity,
recollection in prayer, purity of heart,
a right intention in all my works,
diligence in fulfilling the duties of my state of life,
constancy in my resolutions,
resignation to the will of God
and perseverance in the grace of God even unto death,
and, by your intercession and your glorious merits
I ask this through Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with God the Father
and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
