Prayer to One's Own Patron Saint (2)

O great Saint, whose name I am privileged to bear, beneath whose special protection God has confided the care of my salvation, when at baptism I was adopted and made a child of God; do thou help me by thy continual intercession to lead a truly Christian life, and assist me, O gracious protector of my soul, to recover and preserve the grace of baptism I may have lost by sin. Plead for me before God that I may receive the grace of following faithfully thy holy example and being protected by thee both throughout the length of this troublous life and at the hour of my death, I may rejoice with thee in glory everlasting. Amen. (St. Andrew's Missal)
