God, our Father, protector of the poor  and defender of the widow and orphan, 

you called your priest, Blessed Michael McGivney, 

to be an apostle of Christian family life and to lead the young to the generous service of their neighbor. 

Through the example of his life and virtue, may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ, more closely,  fulfilling his commandment of charity and building up his Body which is the Church. 

Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us  to greater confidence in your love so that we may continue  his work of caring for the needy and the outcast.  We humbly ask that you glorify 

Blessed Michael McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will.  Through his intercession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request).
