The Gambler's Prayer

A short prayer to bring good fortune when gambling at the casinos.

by Paul Ace Diamond "Huggy" Blow

For any of you religious gamblers out there who are looking for some sort of "lucky" prayer to God to bring luck, good fortune, and wins when gambling at the casinos, look no further. I'm a born and raised Catholic myself, and I too enjoy playing slot machines at casinos occasionally, for fun and for profit. Of course, gambling is more fun when you make a profit. I'm not so sure God cares whether you win or lose at the casinos -- and many religious people will tell you that gambling is a SIN -- but personally I believe the Big Kahuna wants us to have fun and enjoy life, so why NOT ask for his help a little bit for good luck and fortune at the casinos? It can't hurt, right?

As a matter of fact, there is even a patron saint of gamblers: Saint Cajetan, who is recognized as a Saint by the Catholic Church, and his feast day is August 7 (which just so happens to be my birthday.) Saint Cajetan is considered to be the patron saint of the unemployed, gamblers, document controllers, and good fortune. The prayer to Saint Cajetan is as follows:

Glorious Saint Cajetan, acclaimed by
all people to be the father of providence
because you provide miraculous aid to
all in need, I stand here before you today,
asking that you present to the Lord our God
the requests that I confidently deposit
in your hands today.
May these graces that I now request
help me to always seek the Kingdom
of God and his Righteousness,
knowing that God -- who dresses with
beauty the flowers of the field and
abundantly feeds the birds of the
sky -- will give me all other things. Amen.

Here I have written my own short prayer to God -- the Gambler's Prayer (by Paul Diamond Blow) -- which I like to say when driving to the casino, or before entering the front door. It's not quite as fancy as Saint Cajetan's prayer, but it does the trick.

The Gambler's Prayer (By Paul Diamond Blow)

Dear God,
Please help me to have a good time tonight
and please help me have a good night on the slots
I know you don't care about gambling, God
but I know you want me to be happy
so please, God, help me to have fun and get some good wins
and especially, God
please help me not to lose my shirt.
Thank you, God... Amen!

There you go -- the Gambler's Prayer. Say it in good health!
