Novena to St Thomas the Apostle - Powerful Novena Prayer to the Apostle who Doubted - Patron of Craftsmen, Architects, Theologians and India

St. Thomas, one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus, who doubted Jesus' resurrection but then found faith. Feast Day July 3. 

A novena is a powerful prayer said for 9 days; this can be said anytime during the year.

Patron Saint of the blind, Craftsmen (e.g., architects, carpenters & masons); Geometricians; and Theologians. 


Let us begin, In the name of
the Father, and of the Son, and
of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Lord Jesus, Saint Thomas doubted Your resurrection until he touched Your wounds. After
Pentecost, You called him to become a missionary in India but he doubted again and said no.
He changed his mind only after being taken into slavery by a merchant who happened to be going to India. Once he was cured of his doubt, You freed him and he began the work You had called him to do. As the Patron Saint against Doubt, I ask him to pray for me when I question the direction in which You are leading me. Forgive me for mistrusting You, Lord, and help me to grow from the experience.
Saint Thomas, pray for me.
Almighty and ever-living God, who didst strengthen thine apostle Thomas with sure and certain
faith in thy Son's resurrection:
Grant us so perfectly and without doubt to believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God, that
our faith may never be found wanting in thy sight; through him who liveth and reigneth with
thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

St. Thomas the Apostle, pray for us.
Say 1: Our Father...
Say 1: Hail Mary...
Say 1: Glory Be...
