Indulgenced Prayer of Saint Anne

With a heart full of sincere and childlike love, I venerate you, good Saint Anne. You are that beloved and favored creature who, because of extraordinary virtue and sanctity, received from God the great privilege of giving life to Mary, full of grace and blessed among women, the mother of the Incarnate Lord.

Because of such great favors, be pleased to receive me among the number of your devoted servants, for such I claim to be, and wish to remain for the rest of my life. Keep me in your loving protection, and obtain for me from God the grace to imitate those virtues with which you were so gloriously adorned.

Help me to know my sins and to be truly sorry for them. Obtain for me an ardent love for Jesus and Mary. Aid me in observing the duties of my state of life faithfully and constantly. Protect me from all dangers in life, and assist me at the hour of my death, that I may safely reach heaven, there to praise together with you, most blessed mother, the Word of God made Man in the womb of your most pure daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be (Three times).
