Prayer for canonization of Fr. Baker

Lord, you gave us Your Servant Nelson Baker
as an example of service
to the poor, homeless, and young.

By Father Baker's ardent concern for those in need,
inflame our hearts and lives with compassion for the poor,
justice for the oppressed,
hope for the troubled,
and courage to those in doubt.

We pray through the intercession of Our Lady of Victory,
if it be Your will, that Your servant, Nelson Baker,
may one day be canonized.


3x Glory be.

O Victorious Lady,
You who have ever had such powerful influence with Your Divine Son
in conquering the hardest of hearts,
intercede for those for whom we pray,

through Christ, our Lord.
