St. Augustine Prayer
Saint Augustine, father, and doctor of the Catholic Church, a principal saint of millions of people throughout the world. He was the greatest thinker of Christianity and known by many as one of the greatest philosophers and theologians of all history.
The life of Augustine of Hippo, as he was known before being beatified by the Catholic Church, was marked by significant periods of darkness that man was able to resolve and overcome, leaving God and the Christian religion in his heart.
He found in the Bible the source of the faith and hope he so desperately needed, and has ever since dedicated the rest of his life to helping the faithful and followers in the face of any adversity, even those dedicated to him after his death.
Your feast celebrated on August 28 in the West, is a special day to address St. Augustine, so here are some prayers that you can offer to the “Father of the Church.”
💀 Prayer of St. Augustine on Death
Dear Saint Augustine, Father, and Lord of the Catholic Church. I address you with an open heart, as I have always done. You have shown me on previous occasions that your faith can do anything and that you are a faithful representation of God.
His words, his advice, and his teachings guided my steps and my life on the right path.
Today, with an open heart and a deep sadness in my heart, I speak to you because I need help to overcome death.
I have been facing to face with her and have been in almost direct contact with all the bad things she implies. Unfortunately, a person I loved died and left a deep void in my life.
I feel sad, and I don’t know how I’m going to be able to overcome his death. You also faced difficult situations and came out victorious. I ask you to help me to overcome your death; post death is nothing.
Please give me the necessary tools to understand that the person is in a better place, is not suffering, and wants to see me happy.
He protects me with his cloak and fills my heart with all the love that is currently scarce. Accompany me in my bereavement process, give me your protection and courage, and I know that I will be able to overcome the death of my loved one.
💖 Prayer to Saint Augustine, later I loved you
St. Augustine, a saint of devotion and shows that faith can counter any adversity. I will always worship you and you, true to your word, have fulfilled me on all occasions.
Whenever I doubt my faith, I allow myself to be carried away by evil and sins take hold of me, I think of your prayer, “I loved you late.
You taught me that no matter how long we spend away from God and Jesus Christ, we will always have the opportunity to return to the One who receives us with an open heart.
At this moment, I feel far from the Christian faith, and that makes me feel bad. I need to return to God, to his beliefs, to his teachings, to his love. I need you to help me reconnect with God and your faith, just as you did.
I know God has always been inside me, but I’m weak and manipulable. I beg you, remove all doubt, restlessness, or sorrow from me and let me draw near to God.
Let me love God freely, Saint Augustine. Just as you expressed in your prayer that God managed to call you, calm you, and unite you to Him, so let me also draw closer to the Lord again.
I ask for your forgiveness from the bottom of my heart, but I am willing to open my heart completely to your love.
😢 Prayer of St. Augustine, do not weep for me
St. Augustine, blessed, I pray before you because I feel intense pain in my soul. I lost a loved one. He died and found God Himself in heaven, where He is free, without suffering and with love in His heart.
However, I, Saint Augustine, who was left alone in earthly space, find myself very afflicted and lonely because of his departure.
I need you to teach me how to overcome your death right now, and that’s why I want to turn to one of your best-known prayers: “Don’t cry if you love me.”
As I said in my prayer, I know that the beloved is now in a better place, where the fields and paths he crosses are beyond imagination, because they are God’s creation.
Make me understand that he is well; take me with his cloak of love and heal my heart wounded by his departure.
I know that you have helped many people overcome the death of a loved one through your word, and I ask you to help me overcome this. Let your message come to me, to know that he is well, that he is at peace and that you know how much I love him.
😒 Prayer to St. Augustine against envy
Dear Saint Augustine, father, and bishop of the Christian Church. It is to you that I address myself in the face of my adversities because I know that there is no better example of overcoming and reuniting with God than you.
You taught me that as long as I have God in my heart, I will be able to overcome any obstacle.
I’m currently in a situation that affects me deeply. I feel that bad energies surround my life and that these are affecting my loved ones and me.
Please help me to recognize where this enviable, negative, and bad energy that is affecting me comes from and give me the tools to take it away from me.
If it comes from a close person, I ask you, St. Augustine, to open your eyes to God’s teachings and make him see that envy and jealousy are sinners, that they bring negative emotions into his life that does not allow him to reach full happiness.
Take away from me, all the people who before my accomplishments only feel jealousy, envy, and resentment. That my life is accompanied only by people who feel happy for me because the negative energy only brings damage and violence.
Saint Augustine: A lesson in faith
As we have said before, the story of St. Augustine is ideal for people who question their faith or who do not yet allow the love of the Lord to enter freely into their hearts.
Augustine of Hippo, when he was in one of the darkest moments of his life, understood that only by opening his heart to God and studying his teachings in depth could he find the solution to his problems.
You’ll never be alone if you have God in your heart.
