St. Joseph the Worker, Pray for Us. Day 5.
O St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong,
so prompt before the Throne of God,
I place in you all my interests and desires.
O St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercession
and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings
through Jesus Christ, Our Lord;
so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power
I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage to the most Loving of Fathers.
O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms.
I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.
Press him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me,
and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath.
St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.
Say for nine consecutive mornings for anything you may desire.
It has seldom been known to fail.
To Trust in You. That is what I should have always been asking.
Help me to Trust In You.
You Know my Needs. You Know the Prayers in my Heart.
But more than that. You Know I am foolish. You know I lack Faith the size of a Mustard Seed…
Thus, what I as is for Faith and Trust in You Alone, Always.
If you Grant me this, NOTHING else matters…
