Prayer to St Joseph the Worker
Dear St Joseph, kind and loving Father, you are always helpful to those in need.
I come before you in sincerity of heart. Listen kindly to my prayer, and obtain for me the favours I ask. ( Pause and make your request)
Through your powerful protection bless the unfolding journey of my life.
Grant me patience, wisdom, healing and encouragement.
Give me courage that I may stand secure and face the challenges of life. Shelter me in times of difficulty.
Help me to admit when I am wrong and when necessary gently lead me towards a new beginning.
Grant me health of mind, body and spirit, so that I may contribute to the world and enjoy my one precious life.
Obtain for those who have asked my prayer , God’s blessing and protection.
Glory be to the father ……
