Matthew 7:7 - "Ask, and it shall be given to you. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you"

Mark 11:22-25 ~ Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. I assure you that whoever tells this hill to get up and throw itself in the sea and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. For this reason I tell you: When you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it, and you will be given whatever you ask for. And when you stand and pray, forgive anything you may have against anyone, so that your Father in heaven will forgive the wrongs you have done.”

St Lawrence Of Attur Novena prayers



There are 3 different prayers that are said for 9 days each as a novena. The prayers below are miraculous as attested by the faithful who visit the shrine of St Lawrence in Attur, Karkala which is placed in the south-indian state of Karnataka, India.




Prayer 1.

Glorious Martyr, St. Lawrence, we come to you in humility as we see your greatness and your power of intercession with God. You were so strong in your faith that you readily suffered tortures from the pagans and died a cruel death becoming an outstanding witness to Christ and His Church. As we discern your strong faith we believe in your powerful patronage and pray you to obtain for us a living faith, an unwavering hope and love of God and of our neighbour. Keep us pure and chaste; make us obedient to our elders. Help us to help the poor, the down trodden, the sick and those in trials and difficulties. Touch the tepid Christians and enkindle in them the fire of faith, and give the non-Christians the grace of faith in Christ. As the pagans were moved to your faith in Christ so may your immortal faith make the unbelievers embrace the true faith that the Kingdom of God may flourish. Assist us always to overcome our trials and temptations. Grant that we may always live a true Christian life and finally be victorious in the battle of faith that being true witnesses to Christ we may die in Him to join you and other saints and live for all eternity in His Kingdom to praise God for ever and ever. Amen


Prayer 2.

O St. Lawrence, who in the flower of youth suffered and died for the faith, hear our prayers. With confidence we fly to your patronage. Obtain for us deep faith, strong hope, a sincere love of God and neighbour, unsullied chastity and humble obedience. Inspire us to succour the poor, the needy, the sick and the afflicted. Lead the erring back to the Father's Home. May God's Kingdom spread far and wide on earth. Help us in all our needs especially............. Finally grant that we live as the worthy people of God, die a holy death and join you in the heavenly bliss for ever. Amen.


Prayer 3

O holy St Lawrence, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need to you, I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present urgent petition. In return I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked.
(Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Mary and 3 Glories)
St Lawrence pray for us and all who invoke your aid. Amen

  2. I first want to say that even as ridiculous as my miracle will sound, it's true, and i don't need anyone telling me that it's not, because it happened to me, and i'll know that for the rest of my life. Many people have suggested to me that my miracle had simply been my brain suddenly knowing exactly where my lost item was, but that's just down-right ridiculous. It was a miracle.

    I'm a 16 year old Croatian Roman Catholic and i live in America. I was around the age of 13 or 14 when my miracle happened to me.

    To the important part. Around final exam time in 8th grade, i lost my science folder, which contained all of my science papers, and if i didn't find it, i would have failed the exam. So the night when i realized that i had lost it, i prayed to Saint Lawrence and St. Anthony on my bed, staring down at my bed. I kept on praying and praying until suddenly an image of a saint appeared in my head (i couldn't distinguish who it was) and the Saint said something that i couldn't understand, and then to the right of the saint, near his head there were letters (some combined into words), but they were letters which i couldn't understand whatsoever. It was as if the saint was using them as subtitles, subtitles that i couldn't understand. It's not that i completely saw the subtitles either, i just saw some sort of writing, other-worldly it seemed.

    After that series of events, the Saint and the subtitles disappeared, and there was my science folder, on a black lab table, that was ALL i saw. After a couple of seconds, the image flashed bright yellow, turning into white, and then everything turned black again, and i opened my eyes.

    Realizing what had just happened, i noticed my heart-rate had gone up dramatically. Just writing about it know literally creeps me out. Because i realized at that moment that i just interacted with a supernatural force. And so as is opened my eyes, i just sat there staring at my bed for several minutes (probably more than 10 for sure), in complete shock and awe (i think my current physical status could have legitimately have been described as "in shock"). And then after that period of time, i just laid down on my bed, got rid of all of my worries, didn't brush my teeth or anything, and then quickly fell asleep. No dreams, no nothing, just a smooth ride until the morning.

    And then when i woke up, i felt invigorated, i felt like a completely new being. Half-believing, and half not believing what i experienced was just true, i still had that overwhelming feeling of excitement and anticipation of finding that science folder.

    So let's skip all the way to when i enter my science classroom (where all the black lab tables are). I first look to my right, at black lab tables next to the door, the folder wasn't there. Then i looked to the left, where the lab tables were that we did our experiments on, yet my folder still wasn't to be found. Then i walked across the room to my teacher's desk (on a black lab table) and it still wasn't there.

    BUT THEN. I walked over to the small black lab table at the far end corner of the room next to the windows, and guess what? THE FOLDER WAS THERE. And there was light shining on it.

    That is my miracle everyone. Many will not believe this to be true, but i know it to be true, and hope you feel the same way :)

My prayer request was to seek assistance and funding so we can open our healing center soon and to provide our needs before the end of july 2014. It was around july 7.. we found somebody who invested a minimal amount but substantial. Thank yout Jesus.

Footprints in the Sand ~ One night I had a dream...I dreamt I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, There was only one set of footprints.I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, You would walk with me all the way; But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, There is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why in times when I needed you the most, you should leave me.The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child. I love you, and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.
