Prayers to St.
Patron of Accountants & Bankers
to Look Beyond
Dear Levi, now
known as Matthew, you were first a publican, a tax collector, and
then a gatherer of souls for Christ after immediately following
His call. Later you wrote wonderful accounts of your Jewish
brethren of what Jesus, descendant of David, said and did as
Teacher and Savior.
Make all accountants imitate your example in giving careful and honest accounts. Amen.
God, You chose St. Matthew the Publican to become an Apostle. By following his example and benefiting by his prayers, may we always follow and abide by Your will. Amen.
God of mercy, You chose a tax collector, St. Matthew, to share the dignity of the apostles. By his example and prayers, help us to follow Christ and remain faithful in Your service. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
