Prayer to St. Bartholomew

O Glorious St. Bartholomew, Jesus called you a person without guile and you saw in this word a sign that he was the Son of God and King of Israel. Obtain for me the grace to be ever guileless and innocent as a dove. At the same time, help me to have your gift of faith to see the Divine hand in the events of my daily life. May I discern the signs of the times that lead to Jesus on earth and will eventually unite me to him forever in heaven.

A Prayer to St. Bartholomew the Apostle, for Courage

O Jesus, Saint Bartholomew's greatest desire was to know the truth. When first informed about You, his initial reaction was, "How can anything good come from Nazareth?" But as soon as he met You, he wanted to become one of Your disciples. You said of him, "Here is a man in whom there is no deception." I ask him to pray against the deceptions that are influencing me and the people I know. Help us to experience Your affirmation when we are honest, give us courage to resist lying as a means of self-protection, and inspire our minds to recognize the truth when we hear it. Saint Bartholomew, pray for us. Amen.
