O glorious Saint Therese, whom almighty God has raised up to aid an counsel mankind, I implore your miraculous intercession.  So powerful are you in obtaining every need of body and soul our holy mother Church proclaims you a “prodigy of miracles, the greatest saint of modern times.” Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition (mention petitions) and to carry out your promises of spending Heaven doing good upon the earth of letting fall from Heaven a shower of roses.  Henceforth, dear little flower, I will fulfill your plea “to be made known everywhere” and I will never cease to lead others to Jesus through you.  Amen

Prayer to Saint Therese for Guidance

Govern by all Thy Wisdom, O Lord, so that my soul may always be serving Thee as Thou dost Will, and not as I may choose. Do not punish me, I beseech Thee, by granting that which I wish or ask if it offended Thy Love, which would always live in me. Let me die to myself, so that I may love Thee. Let me live to Thee, Who art in Thyself, the True Life.

Dear St. Therese, guide me in your Little Way, so that I may ascend to the heights and happiness of Heaven.  Amen
