13 Powerful Prayers to St Anne

As the grandmother of Jesus Christ and the mother to the Blessed virgin Mary, St Anne holds a high place as long as Christianity is concerned. And in the Catholic church, we consider her as the patron saint of Housewives, grandmothers, mothers, educators, women in labor, unmarried women and those suffering from infertility. So sometimes, when we feel we need an urgent answer to some special prayers, we seek her to help us plead to her grandson. So in this article, we will be bringing you some powerful prayers to St Anne for your devotion.

St Anne is sometimes considered as Patron of patron of miners, sailors, and a protector from storms. She holds strong place in Catholicism despite having little stories about her in the Bible. Most of her stories were written in Apocryphal gospels by the early Christians.

According to these Apocryphal gospels, St Anne was born in Bethlehem which was in Judea. Later got married to Joachim, both of whom were devoted Christians, but had difficulty in conceiving a child. This led St Anne to make a promise to God that she would dedicate her firstborn child to God. The story further stated that the couple were then visited by an angel who professed to them that they would have a child, and she will become the mother of all.

Both in the Apocryphal gospels, and the Bible, there was no record of direct communication between St Anne and Jesus Christ. Even at that, her importance and role to salvation cannot be overlooked.

In this world, where so many have lost the notion of God and belittle the supernatural and even the natural values of life, do pray, Saint Ann, that spouses may find again the true way to love, happiness and life.

Would that they were united in genuine affection and become day by day a better sacrament, a more perfect sign of God’s love for mankind and of Christ’s love for His Church! Protect them against misunderstanding and separation! Make them responsible educators of their children!

You, Saint Ann, are so powerful and merciful and I trust in you. I trust that if you intercede for me, things will go better. It will become easier for me to praise God, to be generous, and to serve others thanks to my restored health.

I make this request for the health of my body and for the health of my soul. I also pray for all those who suffer on earth, for all the sick confined to bed, at home or in the hospital.
