I have lost my glasses. Do you think these words will help? Or should I simply hope?


O blessed St. Anthony,
the grace of God has made you a powerful advocate in all our needs and the patron for the restoring of things lost or stolen. I turn to you today with childlike love and deep confidence. You have helped countless children of God to find the things they have lost, material things, and, more importantly, the things of the spirit: faith, hope, and love. I come to you with confidence; help me in my present need. I recommend what I have lost to your care, in the hope that God will restore it to me, if it is His holy Will. Amen.



  1. I do think a little prayer to any third party works…just not for the obvious reason. By placing the problem on the shoulders of any third party, the stress and anxiety of having lost an item is alleviated. Once the stress is removed the mind works more clearly & more easily recalls the resting place of said “lost” object.

  2. Dear Lissanne, In addition to all of the spritual support you will be receiving, I think that perhaps you should consider re-tracing your last steps made before you realized they were gone. I’ve worn glasses for 68 years and know the panic on feels. Good Hunting! love. Granpa Jon

    • Hi Granpa Jon! Thank you for stopping by! The story of the glasses is complicated… I haven’t worn them for years… they actually broke but I kept the arms as they were super duper lovely, and now I can’t find them anywhere but I really want the arms to add to an existing pair of frames…. sigh…

      Pretty sure I didn’t toss them but they are small, and not where I thought I’d put them. I’m going to be so happy if I find them!

  3. I’ve been praying to St Anthony, as patron saint of lost things, for years, and I find the effect most powerful! I just make it a simple prayer….I didn’t know a more formal version existed. I always remember to say a little “Thank you, St Anthony!” afterwards as well.☺
