I Know In My Heart It Was St. Anthony

My daughter was going to be traveling out of the country in about 10 days. I could not find our passports. I tore the house apart, drawers, closets etc. I had been searching on and off for weeks. I called my daughter at school (she is in college in another state) to tell her that I couldn't find them. I made an appointment for her to go to the nearest passport office to get a replacement which was 2 hours from her school. I had been praying to St. Anthony for several days. My daughter decided to come home to help me look. I insisted that if it's here I'll find it. Low and behold she found them! They were in my closet in a place I never would have looked. She said she just had a feeling that she needed to come home to look for them. I
know in my heart it was St. Anthony that sent her home. We are eternally grateful to St. Anthony! I have been saying prayers of thanksgiving all day. While she was home she was able to visit a very dear friend that is has cancer and is not expected to live much longer, so in addition to finding our lost passports she was able to bring some cheer to a dear friend.

I Believe Deep In My Heart

St. Anthony is indeed a miraculous worker. I traveled to Holland with my family in the Summer, on my way back at the train station my daughter who was holding my handbag mistakenly left it at the station. When we realized what happened and went back to the place, the bag had disappeared. In the bag was my new iPad mini, house keys and some other things. A few days later I remembered St. Anthony was the patron of lost properties, so I prayed for days and handed everything over to him. To my greatest surprise a month later I got a call from a guy who claimed to be in possession of my bag with everything intact. I believe deep in my heart St. Anthony is a true Saint.

Of Course Prayer Works

Hello - I recently misplaced a small lockbox of gemstones, jewelry & precious metals that I had been carefully accumulating over 20 years. I thought it might be a good idea to keep some gold & silver in case my country’s economy collapsed, or we had a natural disaster, or needed emergency funds/valuables to barter in case we became refugees in our lifetime. My husband and I had been adding storage shelving in our basement of our home & in the moving of boxes and the Christmas holiday, my box was not in its usual hiding place! Of course, I tried not panic, and tried a methodical search in places where I thought it might be. After diligently searching for 3 hours, I burst into tears around midnight, and tried to sleep. I could not relax, so I went to my laptop & tried to distract my mind. I somehow found myself reading about prayers to find lost objects. I said the prayers and tried one more search. No luck. I went to sleep and tried to let it go for a night.
My husband came from from his night shift job and when I tearfully confessed, he said ‘I know it's in this house, I will find it.’ 10 minutes later, he came back upstairs with the lockbox in his hands! He said he found it in the new shelving unit, but in another storage tub that looked like the one I had used before.
Of course prayer works - just not in the way we expect it to! God bless.
