When asking the Saints to intercede on your behalf, it’s most important to be sincere in your petition. furthermore, it is not wise to ask for that which would be against that particular saint’s nature or principals. It is most helpful to think through your request very thoroughly, perhaps even writing it down. Some saints are very appreciative of gifts, sometimes before you make your request, sometimes after and sometimes both.
Usually, one’s prayers are accompanied by the burning of candles. Often, simple votive candles are sufficient, but 7 day novena candles of a color appropriate to the saint is even more effective. In addition, some saints have special oils for anointing their candle. Many people also wear the medal of a saint, particularly their patron saint, and carry a prayer card with the picture and prayer to the saint whose intercession is sought.
