9 Hours of Prayer to St. Rita (because some things feel impossible)

We all have situations in our lives that feel impossible to overcome. We pray daily to for deliverance from what is plaguing us. But sometimes we need help from a powerful prayer warrior, an advocate and intercessor. 

Enter St. Rita of Cascia.

Tomorrow, May 22nd, is the feast day of Saint Rita. She is the Saint of the Impossible and Helper of the Hopeless. She was a wife, mother, widow and nun. Her incorrupt body is on display at the Basilica of Saint Rita in Cascia, Italy. I have a special devotion to her, and I picked her as my Confirmation Saint. 

Tomorrow I will pray a nine-hour novena to St. Rita. At the start of every hour for nine hours I will pray the prayer below. 

Holy Patroness of those in need, St. Rita, you were humble, pure and patient. Your pleadings with your divine Spouse are irresistible, so please obtain for me from our risen Jesus the request I make of you (mention it here). Be kind to me for the greater glory of God, and I shall honor you and sing your praises forever.Glorious St. Rita, you miraculously participated in the sorrowful passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Obtain for me now the grace to suffer with resignation the troubles of this life, and protect me in all my needs. Amen.

If you have an impossible situation, I hope you will join me on this powerful day of prayer. If you would like me to pray for your intention, please leave a comment below or email me. 

St. Rita, pray for us!
