Prayer to St. Joseph
Solemnity of St. Joseph, March 19

O glorious Saint Joseph, you are the faithful protector and intercessor of all who love and venerate you.

You know that I have special confidence in you and that, after Jesus and Mary, I place all my hope of salvation in you, for you are especially powerful with God and will never abandon your faithful servants.

Therefore I humbly invoke you and commend myself, with all who are dear to me and all that belong to me, to your intercession.

I beg of you, by your love for Jesus and Mary, not to abandon me during life and to assist me at the hour of my death.

Loving Saint Joseph, I now implore this special grace:  (Mention your request.)

Guardian of the Word Incarnate, I feel confident that your prayers on my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God.

Amen.
