I Couldn't Find My Passport

I was in the United States for a visit, but I am originally from Nigeria. With just two days to my return to my country, I couldn't find my passport. I searched everywhere and didn't even sleep at night. I started praying and was really scared, and then I googled the St. Anthony prayer for lost items and prayed with faith, believing in God. The next morning I started the search again, still praying and reciting the prayer, but the only place that kept coming to mind was at FEDEX where I went to scan my passport. I went there with my aunt, and God being faithful to me, the workers had kept it safe for me, and it had been there for over two weeks. God is indeed a merciful God.

Thank you I. for your story of prayer and faith in God, through the intercession of good St. Anthony~

I Truly Believe In St. Anthony

Hi There,
I truly believe in St. Anthony and I also want to spread my experience with others - I can actually see the miracle happening with others as well.
I had misplaced my passport and couldn’t find it. I have the habit of carrying important document along with me to office and whenever I change my bag or dispose them generally very casual assuming all will be safe and nothing left in the old bag. When the time came for me produce my passport I realized I lost or misplaced it and couldn’t find it. At that time my Catholic friend told me about St. Anthony and asked me to pray to him for lost and found items. I couldn’t believe it was a Tuesday - I prayed and I found my passport in my cupboard the next day within my dresses. Then I became a follower of St. Anthony. I have many experiences with my family and friends, wherein I felt my family wouldn't believe me, so I prayed and they found it.

My sister and niece had gone shopping, after they came back home, my niece’s golden earring was missing from one of her ears. The minute I heard this I prayed to St. Anthony without their knowledge. The next day my sister went to those shops where they had gone last night. One shopkeeper had kept the earring safely, since he thought it might of the young girl who was playing with the dresses hanging on the display. It's unbelievable.

I work for a digital ad agency - my colleague got new debit card and apparently there was issue with her pin number, hence she kept it at home and then was not able to locate it. She was worried to inform others at home since it was new debit card. I told her about St. Anthony, and today she got the card and the card is functional. We discussed this last Tuesday, and today again it was Tuesday and she could withdraw money. Isn’t this a miracle. The minute I was talking to her, she was very much convinced and did a google search to find out more about St. Anthony and that’s how I started speaking my heart out. Hope this helps someone to find the lost item.
Regards, S.K.

Thank you for you S.K. for your stories of faith and prayer. St. Anthony is always there, ready to help whenever asked, with Tuesday's as common day that prayers are answered~

The Sense That I Should Ask Was Very Strong

I lost an expensive new birthday gift yesterday that I had only had for two days, a fitbit fitness tracker. I knew the window of time that it had been lost in and had been back to every place and asked dozens of people if they had seen it if they remembered if I was still wearing it. I had even begun to suspect it had perhaps been stolen by a pickpocket by a door to door sales person I met and shook hands with. By this morning I had made the decision to accept it's loss and marked it up to experience.
The next moment I saw someone that I know slightly and stopped to talk to her - She was looking harassed because she had lost an large expenses receipt and if she can't find it it will leave her seriously out of pocket. For the first time in two days I wasn't even thinking of my own lost item. We talked through every place it might have been and she said she would check a few more placed at home. As we parted I said, "You should send a prayer up to St. Anthony." Then immediately - I suddenly thought. I should ask at my sons school about the fitbit. This seemed strange because I'd already lost it by school pick-up time, and I still had it when I dropped him at school. But the sense that I should ask was very strong. I went in and asked at reception and there it was. Someone had found it in the street on the corner between some shops and the school, and handed it in there because they thought it looked like a kids watch. ( I have very thin wrists.)
I hope that my acquaintance (who I now see more as a friend) has found that receipt. I have a strong feeling it is in a book she was reading at the time she was doing the work.
So, intervention or focused intuition. I know that the two things are in the end the same. Thank you St.Anthony - x X x
I am glad to have found my fitbit and regained my connection and faith in people. Now I just need to make amends somehow to the street seller for suspecting them though I don't know how. It was wrong of me to have suspected them, because of their 'hard sales' style of being dishonest.

Thank you N.H. for your great St. Anthony story. In our post on 'How To Find Something By Praying To St. Anthony', it is clear that following your intuition is key to finding what is lost.
