Padre Pio’s “Secret Weapon Prayer” that resulted to multiples of Miracles

When someone asks you to pray for them, why not pray with “Padre Pio Power”? When I heard that the prayer below (written by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque) was the one Padre Pio would use when people asked him to pray for them, I needed no further encouragement for choosing this prayer in the same way. Padre Pio has tens of thousands of miracles associated with him, including the healing of a very good friend of Pope John Paul II.

When you use this prayer, keep a journal to record these special intentions. Keep in mind this type of petition is for specific needs such as gainful employment, healing from an illness, etc. After some time has passed, refer back to this journal to record the amazing way God answers these prayers. Due to our limited view and God’s eternal view, it is important to always trust that He knows far better what is really needed in these situations. Be open to seeing how sometimes He answers our specific prayers in a way that does not always match exactly with what we asked. When looking back on these petitions, see how His way is better.

Padre Pio’s Sacred Heart Novena Prayer

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.” Behold I knock, I seek and ask for the grace of (here name your request). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in My name, He will give it to you.” Behold, in Your name, I ask the Father for the grace of (here name your request). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O my Jesus, You have said: “Truly I say to you, heaven and earth will pass away but My words will not pass away.” Encouraged by Your infallible words I now ask for the grace of (here name your request). Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be … Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of You, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Your tender Mother and ours.

Say the Hail, Holy Queen and add: “St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.”

  1. From a purely science standpoint, placebo trials are not always done. Source:
    In fact, you would be hard pressed to find a placebo study linking cigarettes with cancer. Source:
    Also, the Catholic church gathers a comittee of theologians and science experts to determine the validity of a miracle. Source:
    In regards to Padre Pio being a fraud, here’s a source detailing why we are fairly certain he wasn’t. Note: let it be known that the source is biased, as yours was. Source:

    • Andrew, thank you for defending our beautiful catholic religion and all your great knowledge I am so impressed! God bless you ??

    • Thank You Andrew for this. And I hope that People who walks with Faith … knows what is true and what is not. Sometimes, Miracles can not be explained. I believed! May God be Praise for all eternity. God bless and Peace.

    • In 1303ad The pope gave the Franciscans permission to do a festival to celebrate celebrate the stigmata of saint Francis of Assisi. They do this festival every year on September the seventeenth. In the Strong’s concordance of the King James Bible. In the Greek section under the numbers 5516 and 4742 . You will find the name of beast ( stigma) the Catholic Church has been worshiping the name of the beast ( stigmata)) for seven hundred and fifteen years to date. The Catholic Church calls the wounds that Jesus received at his resurrection a holy thing.. god calls those wounds that Jesus received at his crucifixion the name of the beast.. who are you going to believe????

  2. How about a little boy that has never been told about Padre Pio saw him as this little boy was being wheeled into an operating room! After the operation he told his mom about a man that he saw in the hallway, after he described him to his mom, his mom found a picture of Padre Pio and showed it to the little boy. The little boy excitedly said “that is him, that is the man I saw!” OH by the way, no one else saw him in the hallway just this little boy. I know this little boy so this was not just something I read. The fact that you are alive is a miracle!!! If you don’t believe just go on, you don’t have to voice your non-belief here. Some of us do believe because we have seen miracles everyday.

  3. I couldn’t agree more with your opinions Mary, Jaicito, and Andrew and your personal story Mary…Thank God for people like you who enlighten many Catholics.

  4. Science can never explain how a miracle happens, hence the name ‘miracle’ but the recipients of these miracles know full well it is Divine intercession that has cured them. Whether you believe it or not makes no difference. They are happy and their lives are restored and so is their faith. For non-believers, may you never need a miracle in your lives, but we will pray for you to be enlightened. God bless.

    • Theres nothing more that can be said to someone who have decided to not believe. Miracles require faith. Faith cannot be forced upon. Thank you for your concern Tom. Let’s just agree to disagree. The only way to find out is after we die. Then you will know for sure if all of this exists or not. All the best & God bless!

    • God’s words say let he who is deaf hear with his eyes and he who is blind see with his ears . May God forgive you to question one of his saints and may he look down on you and forgive you .
      Peace be with you .Amen

    • You can only express your opinion because that is your right …but dont argue with us here who believes in the Miracle of St Padre Pio because i am one of those who believed in his miracles

    • Science can be, and often is, disproved. Often, scientists are paid to come to conclusions. The mind is an amazing thing, and so is it’s power. There are many things that cannot be explained. That doesn’t mean they didn’t happen.

    • Tom, SMH at you of little faith. Miracles happen everyday. It is a miracle that each of us wake up everyday. Sometimes the doctors are the helping hands of the miracles. Sometimes doctors can’t even explain why a patient is still alive or was cured other than to say it was/is a miracle, it is/was Divine intervention. In those times it is not our job to ask how or why but just to thank God or the Saint that intervened on our behalf.

      • Debate on existence of God: Professor vs Student named ‘Einstein’
        April 16, 2011 at 3:07am
        An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the Problem Science has with
        GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .
        Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son ?
        Student : Yes, sir.
        Professor : So, you Believe in GOD ?
        Student : Absolutely, sir.
        Professor : Is GOD Good ?
        Student : Sure.
        Professor : Is GOD ALL – POWERFUL ?
        Student : Yes.
        Professor : My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him.
        Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
        (Student was silent )
        Professor : You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, Young Fella. Is GOD Good?
        Student : Yes.
        Professor : Is Satan good ?
        Student : No.
        Professor : Where does Satan come from ?
        Student : From . . . GOD . . .
        Professor : That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
        Student : Yes.
        Professor : Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
        Student : Yes.
        Professor : So who created evil ?
        (Student did not answer)
        Professor : Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don’t they?
        Student : Yes, sir.
        Professor : So, who Created them ?
        (Student had no answer)
        Professor : Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD?
        Student : No, sir.
        Professor : Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?
        Student : No , sir.
        Professor : Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD?
        Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
        Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
        Professor : Yet you still Believe in HIM?
        Student : Yes.
        Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol,
        Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
        Student : Nothing. I only have my Faith.
        Professor : Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.
        (Here, the student begins to shoot back the professor.)
        Student : Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
        Professor : Yes.
        Student : And is there such a thing as Cold?
        Professor : Yes.
        Student : No, sir. There isn’t.
        (The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events )
        Student : Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat,
        a Little Heat or No Heat. But we don’t have anything called Cold. We can hit 458
        Degrees below Zero which is No Heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is
        no such thing as Cold. Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat. We
        cannot Measure Cold.
        Heat is Energy. Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.
        (There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )
        Student : What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?
        Professor : Yes. What is Night if there isn’t Darkness?
        Student : You’re wrong again, sir.
        Darkness is the Absence of Something
        You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light . . .
        But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called Darkness, isn’t it?
        In reality, Darkness isn’t.
        If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn’t you?
        Professor : So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
        Student : Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
        Professor : Flawed ? Can you explain how?
        Student : Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality.
        You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD.
        You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure.
        Sir, Science can’t even explain a Thought.
        It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood
        either one.
        To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that Death cannot
        exist as a Substantive Thing. Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a
        Professor : If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.
        Student : Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
        (The Professor shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument was going )
        Student : Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an On-Going Endeavor, Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
        (The Class was in Uproar )
        Student : Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor’s Brain?
        (The Class broke out into Laughter )
        Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt
        it? . . . No one appears to have done so. So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that You have No Brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your Lectures, sir?
        (The Room was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student, his face unfathomable)
        Professor : I guess you’ll have to take them on Faith, son.
        Student : That is it sir . . . Exactly ! The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.
        NB: I believe you have enjoyed the Conversation . . . and if so . . . You’ll probably want your Friends / Colleagues to enjoy the same . . . won’t you? Forward them to Increase their Knowledge . . . or FAITH. That student was Albert Einstein.

    • hahaha..u know what u make me.laugh..u feel like u know everything..u will always base on science which is base on human intelligence and mind u no one is perfect and u will be shock one is just a science that is the work of the devil to make people confuse..u failed to see and know the truth..goodluck and one day u will bend on your kness i assure you..god forgive you..

    • That is illogical. If everyone could heal, then there would be no miracles.
      Jesus did say, that anything he could do, anyone could do. There are person have many different powers, like healing, Extra sensory perception, didactic memories. Not everything is explainable.

  5. In November of 1998 I was to have emergency surgery for a huge, cancerous cervical tumour on a Tuesday morning at 9:00 am at City Hospital in Saskatoon SK. On the Friday before I met the surgeon, Dr. Barry Gilliland, for the first time. He took an xray that day of my tumour. I was asked to fast for the next four days and arrive at the hosp., by 7:00 am on the Tuesday to prep for surgery, Another xray was taken at that time as the doctor needed to know how much it had grown, moved, etc., over the previous four days. When I was still in my room, starving, at 11:30 am I finally ran the bell. A nurse arrived and when I said, “I was suppose to have surgery at 9:00 am. What’s going on?” She appeared very agitated and responded, “Oh, didn’t anyone tell you?” Then, “I’ll get the doctor.” He arrived shortly, very agitated and said, “Come with me!” I responded, “Like this?” I had only a flimsy hospital gown on. He searched around hurriedly in the cupboards and found me a housecoat and slippers. I then was led to a large room off the OR where he took me into a small cubicle with xrays up on screens. He said, “See this?” I shook my head, “No,” He then said, “This is the xray of your tumour on Friday. This is the one we took this morning.” Again he could see I was purplexed. He emphatically stated, “There’s nothing there! There’s nothing to operate on!” He looked totally freaked out as did the numerous nurses zoning in to have a kind of guarded, almost as if they’d seen a ghost, incredulous look at me. Gilliland just kept staring at me with “WHY?” in his eyes and I somehow knew an atheist understood he had come close to the Kingdom of God on earth (not me, but God’s work). I had prayed with my whole heart, just once, over the weekend, but from my very soul for a miracle as I had four kids who needed me very badly. Although there was no tumour to operate on, and to make the doctor feel better I asked if he would do the D&C (should not have) that had also been planned and he said yes. Just as I was going under a nurse named Kali, with a positively hateful gleam in her eye, grabbed my left wrist and started pulling on it. When I came to in Recovery I saw my wrist. The head nurse came over and asked me about the hugely purple mess of it. She was terribly upset when I told her about Kali and ordered me to report the incident to the Hosp., asap I tried, making a special 25 mile trip in to see the Administrator two weeks later. The bruising and swelling were still very visible but nothing was broken. They refused to acknowledge anything, suggesting I get psychiatric help. We could not afford a lawyer and in our province the lawyers would likely have only taken our money and let the hosp., win, anyway. In one day I got to experience God’s miracle and a little demon’s anger at the truth of it. Naysayers, go away. I’ve had many miracles. The truth is still the truth. Now doctors call these “Spontaneous healing” that they can’t explain but we all know, like it or not. God reigns!

    • God is Good all the time! Praise and Thank the Good Lord daily! Amen.
      Simple Faith in God will see us through any situation.
      If we can understand God, then we won’t be Human

  6. I am a Science teacher. I try my best to bridge the gap between Faith and my students.
    Albert Einstein, I quote ” The More I study Science, the more I believe in God. “

  7. Sorry (for you) as you have unfairly judged
    him. He has been investigated numerous times by the Church AND by non-Catholic investigators and their results were THAT HE IS NOT A FAKE! If you count yourself as a fair person, you really should investigate before you make false slanderous opinions. Praying for you today

    • That’s why they are miracles Tom. However we receive these so called miracles cannot be proven by Scientists.they are from god..people take it lightly that when something that happens good is called luck..not.. everything is from God that is good..and blessings are the result of faith and the saints are a pathway to intercede for us..they are examples of very hard belief and commitment to our creator.. and help us gain love and faith to our God. God bless you…in your journey to finding the truth..

    • That is because you are blind. You cannot see anything through that blind heart and eyes of yours. I pray that Padre Pio will make you see what you don’t understand. Miracles happen everyday Tom. You just fail to see it.

  8. Scientific research and miracle are two different things .The things of the spirit can’t be proven, they can only happen and i am sure you know about Obiah ,Witchcraft and Voodoo, in every culture these same things are called by a different name and i also believe that you have the knowledge that these things work , so why can’t you believe that a simple prayer to God can work as well . The knowledge and existence of the spirit would is by far more real than man’s little scientific findings

    • “The things of the spirit can’t be proven” – – – Then, why accept the claims for such?
      “i am sure you know about Obiah ,Witchcraft and Voodoo, in every culture these same things are called by a different name and i also believe that you have the knowledge that these things work” – – – Why do you think I have the knowledge that these things work. They are just as bogus as your miracles and Padre Pio.
      “The knowledge and existence of the spirit would is by far more real than man’s little scientific findings” – – – – How do you know this and verify it?

  9. Wish I could see the Lord’s miracle on my sons (Autism) and financial blessings and wish I could be a living testimony to that.

    • My email is What you posted needs a deep conversation. However, in few words, challenges are the manner in which God brings us closer to him.Prayer is the way we communicate to God.The Rosary and its assoiciated prayers unite us with God.Mother Mary is the epitome of faith.Follow her life.Graces are received in many ways.Pray for wisdom to respond to the Challenges and you will receive the Grace.Pray for discernment and you will receive wisdom.Pray with unwavering faith.
      Lord Jesus, you said that when two or three are gathered in your name ,you would be present.
      Lord, come into our presence now and forever more. Come into the life of Priscilla Gomez and bless her. Give her the Grace to manage her son’s autism. Give her the wisdom to deal with her finances to lead her to prosperity. In faith we pray.Amen.

  10. For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those that don’t, no explanation is possible. May God bless you.

  11. Hi Everyone! Let Tom believe what he wants to believe in. It’s useless to argue with an aethist like him. Let’s just pray for him to experience a miracle . Please continue to believe that our God is great all the time. Don’t be influenced by non-believers like Tom.

  12. Let us continue to pray for those who do not believe. Let us love, accept and understand them. I believe in God and I personally experience miracle thru St. Padre Pio’s intercession. I don’t need to know how it happens, i do not need any scientific explanations one thing is for sure that God is real. Let love reigns because if you love you experience miracle. God bless us all!!!

  13. Dear Tom, I understand where you come from. I was a non believer at one point. But things are happening in my life that changed me as a person totally. I suggest that you should visit Padre Pio ‘s place sometimes, you will see the evidence of thousands of letter sent to him thanking him for his intercession. I would have to say “wow” when I visited there last year… Just pray to him for evidence, and then he will reveal the Truth to you. God bless and Peace. Love, Noelle.

  14. This is what some of us believe. Padre Pío brings hope and I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. If you don’t believe well that’s your right. If you die believing in God and he exists you lose nothing but if you die not believing and God exists you lose everything. Jesus Christ is my Lord and savior and I love Padre Pio

  15. lots of medics and well known people in the field of science and medicine during those times have investigated it already. even the priest and bishop who were told to Investigate were doubtful at first but believed thereafter.

  16. It is obvious you have never heard of the Devil’l Advocate. This is a counsel of people whose goal it is, is to prove a candidate for sainthood be unworthy.. There are other trials; Has healing been done in their name. Is it completely verified with.medical records and witnesses.
    How can you have a placebo study? That is illogical.
    Where is your proof, Rather Pop was a fraud?

  17. Padre Pio was asked what he thought about modern people who didn’t believe in hell.

    “They’ll believe in hell when they get there.” he replied.

  18. I sincerely hope and pray that one day soon, you will eat your words. For, for people with faith, no explanation is needed. For those who refuses to believe, no amount of explanation can make them see the folly of their unbelief.

  19. My uncle received Devine intervention that doctors could not explain. Miracles exist. Sad for those who don’t believe in it. Just pray for them.

  20. Saint Padre Pio is Not a fraud. I know that he prayed for me and I was healed from my kidney cancer. I knew that I was healed about a week before my surgery and I told my doctors but they didn’t believe me and I told them that they will be shocked at the day of my surgery and sure enough that they were shocked. This happened at UC Davis medical center in Sacramento California in June of 2002 when Padre Pio became a saint.
