Novena to St. Matthias, Apostle - Patron of Alcoholics - Sailors - Carpenters

Novena Prayer to Sts. Matthias  (Say these prayers for 9 days)
                  O Glorious Saint Matthias, in God's design it fell upon you to take the place of the unfortunate Judas who betrayed Jesus, his Master. You were selected by the twofold sign of the uprightness of your life and the call of the Holy Spirit. Obtain for us the grace to practice the same uprightness of life and to be called by that same Spirit to wholehearted service of the Church and our world.
Please help all who struggle with the addiction of alcoholism to experience this same grace and come to live in the serenity and joy of a life surrendered to God. AMEN
                  
We beg your intercession dear Glorious saints, to ask God today to grant the favors we now place with confidence in your hands, especially:
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus: We place our trust in You. 
Our Lady Queen of the Angels: Pray for us.
St. Matthias  Pray for us.
Say One Our Father, One Hail Mary and One Glory Be each day of the Novena.
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will
 be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us
 our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into 
temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
AMEN
Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
