TO ST. JOSEPH
Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never has
it been known that anyone who asked for your help and sought your
intercession was left unaided. Full of confidence in your power,
I hasten to you, and by your protection - Listen, O foster-father
of the Redeemer, to my humble prayer, and in your goodness hear
and answer me. Amen.
TO ST JOSEPH IN TIMES OF NEED
"Sweet obedient and gentle Joseph, you always did the will
of the Father when you were on earth. I ask you dear St. Joseph
to provide for the following need (mention necessity here). I pray
this glorifies Our Heavenly Father on earth. In silence St. Joseph,
I wait as you waited by Our Lady's side when you were on earth.
(Note:- This prayer can be said as a nine-day novena or it can be
Heavenly Father, you have given us a model of life in the Holy Family
of Nazareth. Help us, O loving Father, to make our family another
Nazareth where love, peace and joy reign. May it be deeply contemplative,
intensely Eucharistic, and vibrant with joy. Help us to stay together
in joy and sorrow through family prayer. Teach us to see Jesus in
the members of our family, especially in their distressing disguise.
May this Eucharistic heart of Jesus make our hearts meek and humble
like His and help us to carry out our family duties in a holy way.
May we love one another as God loves each one of us, more and more
each day, and forgive each other's faults as you forgive our sins.
Help us, O loving Father, to take whatever you give and to give
whatever you take with a big smile.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, cause of our joy, pray for us. St. Joseph,
pray for us. Holy Guardian Angels be always with us, guide and protect
