Saint Joseph, you are the faithful protector,
and intercessor of all who love and venerate you.
I have special confidence in you.
You are powerful with God
and will never abandon your faithful servants.
I humbly invoke you and commend myself,
with all who are dear to me,
to your intercession.
By the love you have for Jesus and Mary,
do not abandon me during life,
and assist me at the hour of my death.
Glorious Saint Joseph,
spouse of the immaculate Virgin,
father of Jesus Christ,
obtain for me a pure, humble, and charitable mind,
and perfect resignation to the Divine Will.
Be my guide, my father,
and my model through life
that I may merit to die as you did
in the arms of Jesus and Mary.
Loving Saint Joseph,
faithful follower of Jesus Christ,
I raise my heart to you
to implore your powerful intercession
in obtaining from the Heart of Jesus
all the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare,
particularly the grace of a happy death,
and the special grace I now implore:
Guardian of the Word Incarnate,
I am confident that your prayers in my behalf
will be graciously heard before the throne of God.
