Prayer for the Canonization of Blessed Michael McGivney

God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender
of the widow and orphan, you called your priest,
Blessed Michael McGivney, to be an apostle of
Christian family life and to lead the young to the
generous service of their neighbor. Through the
example of his life and virtue, may we follow your Son,
Jesus Christ, more closely, fulfilling his commandment
of charity and building up his Body which is the
Church. Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us
to greater confidence in your love so that we
may continue his work of caring for the needy and
the outcast. We humbly ask that you glorify
Blessed Michael McGivney on earth according to the
design of your holy will. Through his intercession, grant
the favor I now present (here make your request).
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Blessed Michael McGivney … Pray for us.
Mary, Queen of Knights …… Pray for us.
