Prayer – Novena For the SAFA Charity Dove Hunts 2021

Prayer Request for the intercession of St. Hubert, patron Saint of Hunters, for a Holy Hunt

2021 St. Hubert teaches us that holiness and hunting need not be mutually exclusive.

Pray these prayers as a 9-day novena to sanctify the SAFA Dove Hunt asking for the intercession of St. Hubert to have a safe and virtuous hunt.    

Novena #1 for faithful, fun & fruitful SAFA Dove Hunts on Sept 1 & 3 – Aug. 26 – Sept. 3, 2021

Prayer to be an honorable hunter By the grace of God may I always honor, thank and adore the Lord God Who created the animals and saw that each species was good. Let us love the God Who made humans in His own image and likeness and set them over the whole world, to have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth (Gen 1:26). By my honorable conduct as a hunter let me give a good example and teach new hunters principles of honor, so that each new generation can show reverence for

God, respect other hunters and the animals, and enjoy the dignity of the hunt.   Prayer to hunt for souls, like St. Hubert Lord, You spoke to St. Hubert and converted him to You during a stag hunt. You changed him into a hunter of souls, yet You continued to use his skills as a hunter to open minds to Your Gospel. I ask that You make me into a hunter of souls above all other hunting activities. May I look for the opportunities to speak of You and Your Good News of salvation. Let the hunting site itself be a place that uplifts the soul. May our time alone be an opportunity to pray and listen to You. May all the actions of the rest of our lives be a constant hunt for You, for the opportunities You give us to evangelize, and to target the souls most in need of Your love.  

Prayer for a safe, faithful and successful SAFA Dove Hunt that will bear much fruit that will last St. Hubert I ask you to intercede for SAFA and all of its Dove Hunt benefactors, contributors, participants, volunteers and vendors to desire to pursue The Truth with perseverance through love, to grow in my knowledge of and love for Jesus Christ, to turn my life into an occasion of loving You and serving Your Church consistently, simply, cunningly and effectively, to profess Your Word in charity and to proclaim Your Truth with holy boldness at all times so I can share Your Good News for Your greater glory and honor, and the good of all Your people.  

St. Hubert, help me please to preserve intact the treasure of The Faith and pray for me to have a passion and strength similar to yours to hunt for souls and combat the enemies of Christianity, inside and outside of The Church and for this special intention of helping SAFA faithfully persevere in its mission to protect, defend and promote the family in the public square putting good intentions into good actions, glorifying You and spreading Your Good News that would bear fruit that will last (Jn 15:16).  

St. Hubert help me to rebuild a culture of life, marriage, family and responsibility that will help our public officials to be empowered and desire to fulfill their duty to protect life, liberty, freedom of speech, religion, legitimate defense, hunting and conscience and acknowledge the true nature of marriage and the family, to protect and foster them, to safeguard public morality, and promote domestic prosperity in the City of St Anthony and throughout Bexar County and the State of Texas so that each person can pursue actual happiness through the peace and joy of Your Son, Jesus.  

We ask this though the intercession of St. Hubert, St. Eustace, St. Anthony, Christopher Columbus, Ven. Anthony Margil, Charles Carroll, Moses Austin, Sam Houston, St. Josemaria Escriva, St. Joseph and Our Lady of Guadalupe in the name of Jesus Christ and through Him. Amen.  

Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.
