Dear St. Barbara,
obtain for me the grace to be preserved from a sudden and unprovided death;
assist me in my agony,
when my senses fail and I am at death's door.
O powerful patroness of the dying, come to my aid
when I become helpless to help myself!
Repel all the assaults and temptations of the evil one,
and obtain for me the grace to receive the final sacraments,
so that I may breathe forth my soul
confirmed in faith, hope, and charity,
and be worthy to enter eternal glory.
O God, Who adorned Your holy virgin and martyr Barbara
with extraordinary fortitude in the confession of the Faith,
and consoled her in her afflictions,
grant us through her prayers
perseverance in the fulfillment of Your law
and the grace of being fortified with the holy sacraments
at the hour of our death.
