Prayers to Saint Joan of Arc

Saint Joan of Arc is the patron saint of Soldiers and France. England controlled most of the land that is now France in the early 1400s. At this time, Joan of Arc was a farm girl who was appointed by Saints Margaret of Antioch, Michael the Archangel, and Catherine of Alexandria to find the true king of France. She led an army to defend France, and when she was captured the new King Charles made no move to rescue her. She was burned at the stake after being accused of witchcraft. She was later cleared of all charges.

Prayer to Saint Joan of Arc

In the face of your enemies,
in the face of harassment, ridicule, and doubt, 
you held firm in your faith.
Even in your abandonment, 
alone and without friends, you held firm in your faith.
Even as you faced your own mortality,
you held firm in your faith.
I pray that I may be as bold
in my beliefs as you, St. Joan.
I ask that you ride alongside me
in my own battles.
Help me be mindful that what is
worthwhile can be won when I persist.
Help me hold firm in my faith.
Help me believe in my ability
to act well and wisely. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Joan of Arc

Most extraordinary soldier, you insistently
proclaim "Let God be served first!" You 
began by winning many victories and received
the plaudits of princes, but then you were
given to the enemy and cruelty put to death.
Instill in us the desire to serve God first and
perform out earthly tasks with that idea ever
in our minds.
Amen.

This medal and prayer card set can serve as a daily reminder to serve God first.
