Dear Saint Timothy Well known for your gentleness, you were a most faithful disciple of St. Paul, and like him, traveled much to bring the Good News to all people. The letters Paul wrote to you reveal your zeal and inspire us with confidence in you. You too were cast into prison and you too gave your life for Christ. So with confidence we dare to ask, please obtain relief for {name of sufferer}, if it be God's will.   Amen.
