Padre Pio Prayer – St Padre Pio Prayer

Padre Pio Prayer

Padre Pio was also known as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina. He was a friar, priest, stigmatist, and mystic. Padre Pio was also venerated as a saint later on. He became famous for exhibiting stigmata for most of his life. This generated much interest and dispute, he was however both beatified and canonized by pope John Paul II. Due to his faith and close relationship with God there are a lot of people who say Padre Pio prayer as they try to emulate him and his steadfast faith.

Born Francesco Forgione, he got the name Pius after joining the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. He studied for his priesthood in the friary of Saint Francis of Assisi in Umbria.

At the age of 17 he fell ill, it was around this time that he began displaying some mysterious phenomenon. Those close to him say they saw him in a state of ecstasy and levitating above the ground.

In June 1905 his health got worse, so much so that his superiors sent him to mountain convent. They thought the change in air might do him good. When it did not happen however the doctors advised him to go back home. But even after returning home he did not get better.

military service

When World War 1 broke out some ministers were called into military service. He was not called initially but when the army needed another minister he was drafted. Due to his poor health he served on and off and was eventually discharged as unfit for service. All in all his military service lasted for 182 days.

After war

After the war people began looking to him as a symbol of hope. Those close to him would attest that he began to develop various spiritual gifts. They include; healing, bi location, levitation, prophecy, miracles, and extraordinary abstinence from both sleep and nourishment. He also displayed the ability to read heats, the gift of tongues, the gift of conversions and he also had pleasant smelling wounds.

He became a very well known priest, and later a spiritual leader. At which point he gave five rules for spiritual growth;

However in 1922 the new Pope at the time Pope Pius XI was sceptical of his abilities. He accused his fellow companions of collaborating his story to drum up followers and funds. There were numerous investigations ordered by the church. However by 1933 the same pope started supporting him and would even advise people to go see Padre Pio. By 1934 he was once again allowed to perform public mass, which he had been ordered to stop while he was under investigation. Some popular prayers attributed to him include:

May Lord Jesus comfort you,
in all your afflictions.
May He assist you in dangers,
watch over you at all times with His grace,
and mark the safe path that
leads to eternal salvation.
May He make you always
dearer to His Divine Heart and always more deserving of Paradise.

Padre Pio Healing Prayer

“Blessed Padre Pio,
On this day I come to add my prayer to the thousands of prayers presented to You every day by those who love and venerate You. They pray for cures and healings, earthly and spiritual blessings, and peace for body and mind. Because of your friendship with the Lord, He heals those you ask to be healed and forgives those you forgiv.

By your visible wounds of the Cross, which you did carry for fifty years, you were selected in our time to glorify the crucified Jesus. Since the Cross has been replaced by other symbols, please help us to bring it back in our lives, for we accept it is the only true sign of salvation. As we lovingly recall the wounds that pierced your hands, feet, and side. We not only remember the blood you did shed in pain, but your smile, and the invisible halo of sweet-smelling flowers that surrounded you, the perfume of sanctity.

In your kindness, please help me with my own special request: (add request)

Bless me and my loved ones. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.”

Padre Pio Miracle Prayer

“Blessed St. Pio, I come before you today knowing that you are truly a miracle worker. As someone who is close to Jesus, I ask that you would pray for these intentions of mine: (State your intentions here) I beg with the words of Pope John Paul II as I ask for your prayers on my behalf: Glorious, humble and beloved Padre Pio. Show us, we pray, humility of heart, so that we may be counted among the little ones of the Gospel to whom the Heavenly Father promised to reveal the secrets of His Kingdom.

Help us to pray without stopping, certain that God knows what we need even before we ask Him. Get for us the eyes of faith that will help us recognize in the poor and suffering, the very face of Jesus. Comfort us in the hour of trouble and trial. If we fall, let us experience the joy of the sacrament of forgiveness. Give us your tender devotion to Mary, the Mother of Jesus and our Mother. Accompany us on our earthly journey toward the blessed Homeland, where we too, hope to arrive to contemplate forever the Glory of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.”

Prayer for Padre Pio Intercession

“Glorious God, you generously blessed your servant, Padre Pio, with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. You marked his body with the five wounds of Christs Crucifixion, as a powerful reminder to the saving Passion and Death of your Son, and as a stirring inspiration to many people of your eternal mercy, forgiveness, and love.

Lord, in the confessional, Padre Pio worked endlessly for the salvation of souls. By his powerful intercession, many who suffered got healed of sickness and disease. Blessed with the gift of discernment, he could read people’s hearts. Father, from the blood of his wounds, came a perfumed fragrance, a special sign of your Devine Presence. With dignity and intense devotion, he celebrated daily Mass, bringing countless men and women to a greater union with Jesus Christ, in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Through the intercession of Saint Pio, I confidently beg you to give me the grace of (state your petition here). Help me to copy his example of prayerful holiness and compassion. Lord so that I too, may faithfully follow the Risen Lord and one day rejoice in the Kingdom. Where you live and reign forever and ever. Amen.”

Padre Pio Prayer After Communion

Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have You present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You.

Stay with me Lord, because I am weak, and I need Your strength, so that I may not fall so often.

Father, stay with me Lord, for You are my life, and without You, I am without fervor.

Stay with me Lord, for You are my light, and without you, I am in darkness.

Lord, stay with me Lord, to show me Your will.

Stay with me Lord, so that I hear Your voice and follow You.

Stay with me Lord, for I desire to love you very much, and always be in Your Company.

Blessed Father, stay with me Lord, if You wish me to be faithful to You.

Stay with me Lord, for as poor as my soul is, I want it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of Love.

Stay with me, Jesus, for it is getting late, and the day is coming to a close, and life passes, death, judgment, eternity approach. It is necessary to renew my strength, so that I will not stop along the way and for that, I need You. It is getting late and death approaches. I fear the darkness, the temptations, the dryness, the cross, the sorrows. O how I need You, my Jesus, in this night of exile.

Stay with me tonight, Jesus, in life with all its dangers, I need You.

Let me recognize You as Your disciples did at the breaking of bread, so that the Eucharistic Communion be the light which disperses the darkness, the force which sustains me, the unique joy of my heart.

Stay with me Lord, because at the hour of my death, I want to remain united to you, if not by Communion, at least by grace and love.

Lord, stay with me Jesus, I do not ask for divine consolation because I do not merit it, but the gift of Your presence, oh yes, I ask this of You.

Stay with me Lord, for it is You alone I look for, Your Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart, Your Spirit, because I love You and ask no other reward but to love You more and more.

With a firm love, I will love You with all my heart while on earth and continue to love You perfectly during all eternity. Amen.”

Padre Pio Powerful Prayer

Loving Father,
we pray for a boundless confidence
and trust in Your divine mercy,
and the strength to accept
the burdens and sufferings
that bring immense goodness
to our souls and
that of Your Church.

Lord, help us to love You
with a pure and repentant heart,
and to humble ourselves under Your cross,
as we ascend the mountain of holiness,
carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory.

Father, may we receive You
with great faith and love in Holy Communion,
and allow You to act in us as You wish
for your greater glory.

Lord Jesus, most adorable Heart
and eternal fountain of Holy Love,
may our prayer find favor before
the Divine Majesty of Your heavenly Father.”

-St. Pio of Pietrelcina

Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Padre Pio

“Blessed Heart of Jesus,
filled with eternal love,
broken by my ingratitude,
pierced by my sins,
but loving me still;
accept the consecration
that I make to You
of all who I am
and all that I possess.
Guide every faculty
of my soul and body
and pull me,
day by day,
nearer and nearer
to Your Sacred Heart,
and there,
as I can understand the lesson,
teach me Your blessed ways. Amen.”
