NOVENA FOR THE INTERCESSION OF SAINT JOSEPH
Patron of Workers
Dear Saint Joseph,
you were yourself once faced
with the responsibility
of providing the necessities of life,
for Jesus and Mary.
Look down with fatherly compassion upon us
in our anxiety over inabilities
to support our families.
Please help any insuch need, to find gainful employment very soon,
so that this heavy burden of concern,
will be lifted from their hearts
and that they soon may be able to provide for those
whom God has entrusted to their care.
Help them to guard against bitterness and discouragement,
so that they may emerge from this trial,
spiritually enriched with virtue
and with even greater blessings from God.
We raise our hearts to you
to implore your powerful intercession
in obtaining from the Divine Heart of Jesus
all the graces necessary
for our spiritual and temporal welfare,
particularly the grace of a happy death,
and the special grace I now implore:
…………….. (Mention your request)
Guardian of the Word Incarnate,
We feel confident, that your prayers on our behalf,
will be graciously heard before the throne of God
St Joseph Most Holy Patron of Workers,
Pray for us!
