Candy’s little prayer to St Joseph
St. Joseph my father in heaven, I love you.
You were the foster father of Jesus, and I could only imagine how you might have played with baby Jesus and when Jesus was a toddler. I wish I was there as a daughter to you and a sister to Jesus.
Please show me how to love Jesus more and more.
St Joseph is one of my favourite saints and I speak to him like a daughter would speak to her father. I know that St. Joseph would always pray for me when I ask him to pray for my family.
He was the protector of the Holy Family and I am sure that he will protect our families if you ask him to.
St. Joseph is known to be the ‘Protector of families'
My Prayer to St Joseph for our family
Gracious St Joseph, protect my family and all other families from danger, as you did protect the baby Jesus and His mother from the wrath of king Herod.
Pray for us, that we respect, love and care for each other in our family as you were with Mary and Jesus. Help us to be understanding and forgiving towards each other.
Most of all St Joseph, bring us closer to Jesus. St Joseph, please pray for our family. Amen.
St. Joseph was a caring husband to Mary Mother of Jesus, and he will intercede on behalf of us mothers, when we pray for our husbands and sons. Very often I ask St. Joseph to be the protector of my husband and my son.
I also ask St. Joseph to pray for my husband in his work and other activities.
St. Joseph was an honest worker and therefore known to be the
‘Patron saint of Workers’.
Here is a beautiful Prayer to St Joseph - the worker by Pope St Pius X
Glorious St. Joseph, model of all who are devoted to labour,
obtain for me the grace to work in the spirit of penance in expiation of my many sins;
to work conscientiously by placing love of duty above my inclinations;
to gratefully and joyously deem it an honour to employ and to develop by labour the gifts I have received from God,
to work methodically, peacefully,
and in moderation and patience,
without ever shrinking from it through weariness or difficulty to work;
above all, with purity of intention and unselfishness,
having unceasingly before my eyes death
and the account I have to render of time lost, talents unused,
good not done, and vain complacency in success,
so baneful to the work of God.
All for Jesus, all for Mary, all to imitate thee, O patriarch St. Joseph!
This shall be my motto for life and eternity.
