Bad weather is literally storming our country, so we need a powerful prayer against it!

St. Medard (or St. Medardus) is the patron saint against bad weather. He was a bishop of Vermand, France in 530, and was one of the “most honored bishops of his time.”

According to legend, after praying for protection from the rain, an eagle hovered over him. This is why the Church considers him the patron saint against bad weather.

Below is a prayer asking for the intercession of St. Medard. Be sure to pray it before or during bad weather!

Prayer to St. Medard, Patron Saint Against Bad Weather

Jesus My Lord,
Saint Medard served as a bishop during very difficult times,
and his long life of spiritual leadership
created a tremendous impression on the people.

Because of his patronage against bad weather,
I ask him to intercede for me during the storms of my life,
as well as the storms in nature.
Protect me and my home.

And Lord, help the victims of hurricanes,
tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters.
Send in more helpers
and multiply the supplies that are needed for their aid.

You calmed the storm on the Sea of Galilee.
Deliver us from the storms
that are raging around us now.
Saint Medard, pray for us!

Amen.

St. Medard, patron against bad weather, please pray for us!
