Oops, St. Anthony, I Lost Something

A Child's Prayer


“Tony, Tony, turn around.
Something's lost and must be found.”
St. Anthony, I know that you are the saint people pray to when they've lost something.
What a job you've got!
I lose things all the time!
My dad says that I'm “gifted” at losing socks, homework, library books, my glasses, and other stuff.
But this time, the thing I lost is really important.
Now, I'm pretty upset and nervous.
I've been praying that my search will have a happy ending.
Please help me to be patient,
to trust in God's goodness and your help.
