Prayer to St Andrews the Apostle. According to tradition, when Jesus entered the waters of the Jordan and was baptized by John the Baptist, he called to him his disciples and two other men who were close by, Andrew and Peter. The three men were so deeply moved by what they saw that they too asked to be baptized. Jesus agreed, and while they were coming out of the water Andrew’s sandal strap broke and dangled from his foot, but he didn’t stop walking until Jesus stopped him and fixed it for him.

Prayer To St Andrew The Apostle

O Glorious St. Andrew,
you were the first to recognize and follow the Son of God.
With your friend, St. John,
you remained with Jesus,
for your entire life,
and now throughout eternity.

Just as you led your brother, St Peter,
to Christ and many others after him,
draw us also to Him.
Teach us how to lead them,
solely out of love for Jesus
and dedication to His service.
Help us to learn the lesson of the Cross
and carry our daily crosses without complaint,
so that they may carry us to God the Almighty Father. Amen.

Prayer To St Andrew The Apostle

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Dear Lord, we thank You for giving us St. Andrew the Apostle as an example of holiness. Help us to imitate his openness to Your call in our own lives, that we may be as ready to serve You as he was.

St. Andrew, you were one of the first people to be called personally by Our Lord. He called you and your brother St. Peter to leave behind your lives as fishermen and to follow Him as Apostles. You followed His call to become “fishers of men.” And you remained faithful to that call, staying with Him throughout His ministry and spreading the Gospel after His death.

You probably never would have guessed that you would be invited to be one of the closest friends of the Son of God, but you left everything behind in order to follow Him.

Pray for me, that I may be as ready to serve Christ as you were.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Dear Lord, we thank You for giving us St. Andrew the Apostle as an example of holiness. Help us to imitate his virtue in our daily lives, throughout the work we do each day.

St. Andrew, you were no stranger to hard work. You spent much of your life performing the physical labor involved in the life of a professional fisherman. You did not move away from the demands of this work. Instead, you embraced it and attempted to do it well.

When Jesus called you to leave your work behind and become a “fisher of men,” you immediately left your old life and dived into a new kind of work for the glory of God.

Pray for me, as I strive for holiness amidst my daily work. Pray that, like you, my life may revolve around devotion to Christ.

Throughout Christ’s public ministry, you remained close with Him and did not desert Him. After His death and resurrection, you carried out the mission of preaching the Gospel despite persecution. You had faith that God would reward you in Heaven.

Pray for me, that I may remain faithful to God in my life, despite fears of the unknown or of suffering.
