Prayers to Saint Nicholas

Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of bakers, brides, and children. It is said that he helped a poor family in need. When one of the daughters came of age, he would give each daughter a purse full of gold coins.

Prayer to Saint Nicholas

O good St. Nicholas, you who are
the joy of the children, put in my 
heart the spirit of childhood, which 
the gospel speaks, and teach me to 
seed happiness around me. You, 
whose feast prepares us for Christmas, 
open my faith to the mystery of God made man. 
You, good bishop and shepherd, help 
me to find my place in the Church and 
inspire the Church to be faithful to the gospel. 
O good Saint Nicholas, patron of children, 
sailors and the helpless, 
watch over those who pray to Jesus, 
your Lord and theirs, 
as well as over those who humble 
themselves before you. 
Bring us all in reverence 
to the Holy Child of Bethlehem, 
when true joy and peace are found.
