Prayer for the intersession of Saint Paul

O glorious St. Paul, after persecuting the Church you became by God’s grace its most zealous Apostle. To carry the knowledge of Jesus, our Divine Savior, to the uttermost parts of the earth you joyfully endured prison, scourgings, stonings, and shipwreck, as well as all manner of persecutions culminating in the shedding of the last drop of your blood for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Obtain for us the grace to labor strenuously to bring the faith to others and to accept any trials and tribulations that may come our way. Help us to be inspired by your Epistles and to partake of your indomitable love for Jesus, so that after we have finished our course we may join you in praising Him in heaven for all eternity. Amen.

A wonderful prayer before a meal.

“O God when I have food, help me to remember the hungry.
When I have work, help me to remember the jobless.
When I have a comfortable home, help me to remember those who suffer from the cold or from the heat.
When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer. In all this remembering, help me to destroy my own complacency and bestir my compassion.
Make me concerned enough to help by word, deed and prayer, those who cry out for what I so often take for granted.”

I don’t know who wrote this wonderful prayer but it was posted on Facebook by Fr. James Martin, SJ.
