[Repeat the following prayer for 9 days in a row.]

God you were patient with St. Vincent de Paul
as you moved him from self-centeredness
to be centered on you.
Help me through his intercession
to grant me this petition
and to know that you will grant
what I desire in your own time

(Mention your intention here…).

I thank you God for everything
and I will imitate St. Vincent de Paul
in growing in holiness through prayer,
participation in the sacraments
and service to my neighbor
especially the poor.
