Question from Erich Feldhaus on 2/29/2008:
What is the proper way to ask a Saint for prayers to God, and what Saint should be ask for the health of my children? Thank you . Big fan of EWTN.
Answer by David Gregson on 4/24/2008:
You can just call on the Saint by name, and add, "pray for me," or in this case, "pray for the health of my children." One popular patron of children is St. Nicholas. It's always good to be specific in prayer, as to what exactly you're asking for, whether to God or to one of His Saints.
