Prayers to Saint Andrew

First Prayer:

O Glorious Saint Andrew,
you were the first to recognize
and follow the Lamb of God.
With your friend Saint John
you remained with Jesus for that first day,
for your entire life,
and now throughout eternity.
As you led your brother Saint Peter to Christ
and many others after him,
draw us also to him.
Teach us to lead others to Christ
solely out of love for him
and dedication in his service.
Help us to learn the lesson of the Cross
and to carry our daily crosses without
complaint so that they may carry us to Jesus.
Second Prayer:
Brother of Simon Peter,
you heard John the Baptist say:
"Behold the Lamb of God,"
and yoou chose to follow Jesus.
Leaving your nets, you became
a successful fisher of souls.
Lover of the Crucified Christ,
you too were crucified like him.
Teach us to live and suffer for him
and to win many souls for Christ.
