St. Apollonia Comments

St. Apollonia, who died in the year 249, was martyred for not renouncing her faith during the reign of Emperor Philip. The account of the life of St. Apollonia was written by St. Dionysius to Fabian, Bishop of Antioch. Apollonia had all her teeth knocked out after being hit in the face by a Christian persecutor under the reign of Emperor Philip.

    Through the powerful intercession of St. Apollonia, I pray that my two back teeth stop bleeding when I floss in between them. I had periodentitis, which seems to be under control, but it left me with severe gum recession. In addition, now my dentist is seeing shadows on the x-rays of my three back teeth. I am praying for a miracle cure for the gum recession and for the three back teeth, but if this is not God's will, then at least halt the gum recession permanently, do not let the gums bleed, thin out, or become diseased again, and stop the bleeding between my two back teeth when I floss. Make the worst thing wrong with my back teeth be that they need refilling. I am poor. I have no dental insurance. I am begging God that I do not lose a single tooth ant that it will cost nothing or be inexpensive to keep them. Amen.

    Dear Saint Apollonia, I ask for you to pray for my mother who has been enduring tooth pain and infection through out the years. Help calm her worries and fears for she does not know what to do or where or who to turn to being without insurance or any assistance. Please pray for the healing of her pain both physically and emotional. I thank you for your intersession, through Christ our Lord.

    St. Apollonia, I am sorry for the horrible persecution you suffered but am happy and encouraged because you did it for Jesus. My teeth are failing me right and left and there are no funds for complete dental treatment. Jesus, I trust in You and thank you for the communion of saints. St. Apollonia, I ask you to pray for me to remain faithful to Him until death and that the Lord heal me of these failing teeth. I am in pain and I trust you Jesus to heal me. Oh blood and water, which burst forth from the heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You. Amen.

    Saint Apollonia, please pray for me and my teeth this week. At age 23 I'm finally getting braces, and I am afraid of the pain this process will involve, as my particular case will need extractions and possible surgery on my jaw. Help me to confront the fear and pain, as you did in the face of persecution and torture. Calm my mind and heart and help me brace (no pun intended) against the discomfort and embarrassment, so that when this process is over, I might smile with purer joy and greater confidence than I have ever had in my smile. This I pray in Jesus' name. Amen.

    I ask, I seek, I knock that my teeth be healed. All pain, all underlining health problems, all damage, all disease be gone, in Jesus name. St Apollonia pray, pray, pray for me. I want to be able to smile freely, openly again. I thank you Jesus Christ and St Apollonia for your love for me particularly in this situation. Thankyou for my healing. Every time i smile with my healthy teeth that you will bless me with, i will make that smile a praise for your glory. St Apollonia pray for my healing, my urgent, desperate healing. Thank you, thank you almighty father.

    Saint Apollonia I need your immediate interession on my behalf. Please go before the foot of Our Lord and beg for God's mercy on help with my teeth. I need you to help me save the loose tooth. The Lord knows I can not afford to loose another tooth. Please help the dentist do the right thing and save the tooth. Please let this new problem be fixable. Please also let the Dentist be compassionate with the price of fixing the other teeth as I am disabled and can not work. Please come to the Lord with me and help to pleed the case of this poor miserable sinner. Again, please let this tooth be saved at a reasonable price. Please let the dentist have the skills and compassion to help me. Thank you.
