Venerable Matt Talbot--Pray for [insert name]

Lord, in your servant, Matt Talbot you have given us a wonderful example of triumph over addiction, of devotion to duty, and of lifelong reverence of the Holy Sacrament.
May his life of prayer and penance give us courage to take up our crosses and follow in the footsteps of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Father, if it be your will that your beloved servant should be glorified by your Church, make known by your heavenly favours the power he enjoys in your sight.
Father, by the intercession of Matt Talbot please free [insert name] from all addictions--We ask this through the same Jesus Christ Our Lord.
