O Blessed St. Joseph,
please be with me this day.
Guide me through my lessons.
Make every act and word I present to my students
blessed through your intercession.
Obtain for me patience, love, and understanding
when dealing with problems in the classroom.
O St. Joseph, help me
to become the best possible teacher that I can be.
For this reason, I take thee as my patron.
You who taught your son, Our Saviour,
while on this earth.
St. Joseph,
foster father of the Sacred Heart,
pray for us.
