30 Day Prayer

Joseph 12
Ever blessed and glorious Joseph, kind and loving father, and helpful friend of all in sorrow!  You are the good father and protector of orphans, the defender of the defenseless, the patron of those in need and sorrow.  Look kindly on my request.  My sins have drawn down on me the just displeasure of my God, and so I am surrounded with unhappiness.  To you, loving guardian of the Family of Nazareth, do I go for help and protection.

Listen, then, I beg you, with fatherly concern, to my earnest prayers, and obtain for me the favors I ask.

I ask it by the infinite mercy of the eternal Son of God, which moved Him to take our nature and to be born into this world of sorrow.

I ask it by the weariness and suffering you endured when you found no shelter at the inn of Bethlehem for the holy Virgin, nor a house where the Son of God could be born.   Then, being everywhere refused, you had to allow the Queen of Heaven to give birth to the world’s Redeemer in a cave.

I ask it by that painful torture you felt at the prophecy of holy Simeon, which declared the Child Jesus and His holy Mother future victims of our sins and of their great love for us.

I ask it through your sorrow and pain of soul when the angel declared to you that the life of the Child Jesus was sought by His enemies.  From their evil plan you had to flee with Him and His Blessed Mother to Egypt.  I ask it by all the suffering, weariness, and labors of that long and dangerous journey.

I ask it by all your care to protect the Sacred Child and His Immaculate Mother during your second journey, when you were ordered to return to your own country.  I ask it by your peaceful life in Nazareth where you met with so many joys and sorrows.

I ask it by your great distress when the adorable Child was lost to you and His Mother for three days.  I ask it by your joy at finding Him in the Temple, and by the comfort you found at Nazareth, while living in the company of the Child Jesus.  I ask it by the wonderful submission He showed in His obedience to you.

I ask it by the perfect love and conformity you showed in accepting the Divine order to depart from this life, and from the company of Jesus and Mary.  I ask it by the joy which filled your soul, when the Redeemer of the world, triumphant over death and hell, entered into the possession of His kingdom and led you into it with special honors.

I ask it through Mary’s glorious Assumption, and through that endless happiness you have with her in the presence of God.

O good father!  I beg you, by all your sufferings, sorrows, and joys, to hear me and obtain for me what I ask.

(make your request)

Obtain for all those who have asked my prayers everything that is useful to them in the plan of God.  Finally, my dear patron and father, be with me and all who are dear to me in our last moments, that we may eternally sing the praises of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

  7. Please pray with me that St Joseph hears my plea to reopen the lines of communication between Mark and myself. I am so sorry for all the hurt and pain that I have caused. I hope Joseph shows us the unconditional love and compassion he showed Mary as I now offer the Lord and Mark my unconditional love, faith and trust. Please give this man the strength and compassion to forgive me and open his heart and mind to me again, to see the love and support I wish to offer him. My intentions are as pure as my love. Please bring this wonderful man back into my life again? I know our journey has not been and will not be easy! However, I pray that we both feel the Lords hands guiding us and together we can make this journey together.

  8. St. Joseph teaches us that each of us is important, and the future is always open in the mystery of God. He was the “least important” in the Holy Family–compared to Jesus and Mary–and yet the “most important” as the representative of the Father who provided protection and everyday sustenance and guidance. He simply gave himself and that is all we also can do.

  9. dear st. joseph: I worked so very hard to obtain a MLS in library science. Since being stalked so severely by a librarian and his wife, the horrible lies they spread, the demonic attacks, the woman I had to work under that practiced Vodoo, my life is in shambles. Gone are all my hopes and dreams. A new car that my Father so lovingly purchased for me in a TRUE HOUR of need, gone is the reality of working in a library — I don’t think I can stomach it, unless it is a very good place. I live amongst liars, robbers and thieves, all evil people, who have stolen and vandalized so very much. A wonderful priest told me it was evil here, and to leave — you know his words, but I don’t have the strength after 4 back surgeries to work, either, 5 days a week. The pain is too great. Good friends have accused me of things I would NEVER do because of an evil woman and this librarian and his wife. Please help me to escape this life I have been thrown into, where I cannot even go out for a walk when desired, much less have $ to pay bills if I purchase anything — like this computer — the other 3 were ruined by the dopes I am forced to live amongst. Please, please, please, help me to find a way to make a decent living, have the life I had hoped for, restore family love, and decency by those that can well afford to give it — not lies and haughtiness. And live amongst people that know what being a godly person is. BLESS my LOVING FATHER in so many ways. He gave everything he could, and then some. Please be with me as these atrocious credit card companies find the lost payments I have made in a timely way — and allow me to make all future payments, escaping their terrific interest charges. Please help me to find — make a decent living — and restore all to a family that loves God’s word and his promised Eden —

  10. Dear St. Joseph, pls intercede for me , Dear God, Jesus , Mama Mary, please help me, you know the desires of my heart, pls, guide me , pls. make everything be okay, pls , in Jesus’ name, Amen, Thank you

  13. Jesus bless my children n i with a home of our own. Allow bob to ask me for firgiveness n to come back to me as my husband

  14. Pray for me. I am seeking to relocate to be near my elderly parents in Florida. My job, a public librarian, is not much in demand in Florida, and I have found *nothing* 😦 Getting hired from out of state is so hard it seems nearly impossible. I am working hard to write a good resume, do all the “right” things, and yet I’ve had no luck. St. Joseph, please interceed for me, and help me to find a good paying steady job, a full time Monday to Friday with weekends free for my parents (so I can drive to where they are and visit them on weekends). I need to make a certain amount, so I can pay off debts from living alone in DC and caring for my feral cat colony as move to florida to be with my parents. So this, is also an issue with moving – not only are there no librarian jobs, but there seem to be no good paying jobs either for someone from out of state. 😦 Regarding my cats. I feed 23, have trapped and neutred 56 cats and kittens, adopted out over 16 on my own dime and time, and had help with 25 more cats / kittens from the colony that were born, and found homes as kittens – I am broke and in debt from spending on these cats, but I feel that I made the world a better place by stopping these animals from breeding, getting medical care for the ones that needed it, and feeding them so they don’t hunt birds and small prey to survive in the sewers. The colony was threatend with being removed by the owners of the property they shelter on, feeding is difficult, and I’ve beggared myself trying to care for them – . So, I ask for financial stability in my new job in florida – so that my debts can be paid down, I can afford to care for all my cats – even long distance to sponor my colony cats in DC. I dream and hope and pray to get that job in Florida, be able to sell my place here, afford something spacious in florida so I can drive to see my parents on weekends, and have a steady good paying job that allows me to bring my cats from the colony to Florida, a few at a time perhaps?. such a small dream I guess, but hugely important to me. St. Joseph, please please show me the way to my job – so I can make the dream of living close to my parents come true?? So I can make the dream of owning house outright down there come true? So I can make the small dream of bringing my Colony cats from DC to Florida, slowly if need be over time, and keeping them safe? .

  15. Pray for my husband to gain employment as he is depressed at this moment. St. Joseph it breaks my heart to see him sad, please help us! thank you

  16. Dear God, my struggles with money are bringing me down. I am in dire need for myself and my family. I know that You have all answers, and You always hear me. Please shine your infinite light into my life, Bless me with abundance so that my family may thrive. My husband wants me and my son to move out as soon as possible, I pay him for things in the house and he wants a divorce. I wasn’t a perfect wife, forgive me Lord. I ask for your assistance with this matter. I thank You for all You have done for me to date And I pray You will always remind me when I forget That my spirit and soul always dwell in Your good graces. Thank You oh Lord, for blessing me with material comfort So that I am reminded of the bountiful fruits of Your deeds. Forgive me for wrecking my entire life, I lost my job, my marriage and I am still grateful for your love. Please let all the bridges I burned light my way. You alone Lord have the final say in all of this. Amen Matt 7:7 18:20 Eph 3:20

    • Elizabeth,

      I shall pray for wisdom for you first, and the courage to protect yourself. And I shall pray for the conversion of your husband. Such a conversion takes time. Sometimes we need to protect ourselves first. May St. Joseph guide you wisely to those who can help you.

      Sr. Kathryn

    • I urgently need your help, please help to get out of court cases, Mr. Kevin Ikenna has falsely accused me and our company of taking, and now we have dragged to court. Please I need the truth to come light by the special grace of God. Victory and freedom, I pray for in the name of Jesus, amen.

  17. Please pray for me St. Joseph in the name of you Beloved Son. Please intercede for me through Jesus Christ to find the life partner I have in my mind and heart. Please pray that I am able to develop a contact with the person so as to learn about him more. Please pray that I can find a life partner with whom I can share my life and feelings.Please continue to pray for this favor of mine until it is heard by Jesus Christ, the Most High

  18. Please pray for me St. Joseph in the name of God the father and our Lord Jesus Christ. Help me to succeed in my studies in Nursing School. Guide me through the difficult challenges that they endure upon me. Pray that I may pass my exams and allow me to do Gods will in helping the sick and dying. Pray that God will protect me from the distress that school and teachers endure upon me. Help me to succeed and become the nurse in Gods holy name. Be there during my hours of need and never abandon me for I trust in God the father with all my heart and soul. May your will be done.

  19. Dear Child of God
    I have been a nurse for thirty years; I know school is very hard and quite a challenge. I felt you were writing about my experience in nursing school. Continue to study hard; believe that Jesus is at your side every day through every trial. Keep in your mind, Dear Child, the day your graduate from school! Praise Jesus every day no matter how good or bad of a day you have had. God would have never put you in this situation if He felt you would not be successful; would it be easy – NO. He believes that you will be a kind, gentle and loving nurse; going about your nursing duties with Him in your heart.
    I pray for you and your fellow student nurses; I know the road you travel. Be confident in the Lord, Jesus Christ

  20. Saint Joseph please help me with my intention for a situation I am struggling with
    I will continue to pray to you amen

  21. Saint Joseph. I come to you today to asked for favor from you and baby Jesus who is resting peaceful in your arm. to please grant me the favor, to finally find a permanent home for me, my child and our dog. I asked for H.R.A. and Supportive Housing to approve my child and I plus our dog, a three to four bedroom, to bathroom Apartment Home for us to move into by the end of September. Please saint Joseph as you whisper my petition to the baby Jesus, I asked you to give him a kiss for me. by granting me my petition it is the baby Jesus way of telling me he accepted my kiss and return the kiss with another kiss from him. I will always and forever be grateful for your help.

  22. Dear Saints Joseph, Anthony, Jude, Padre Pio, as I continue on with my daily prayers and petitions to you, I continue to ask you to help me and intercede for me so that my prayers and requests are answered. I am desperate for you to provide me with help regarding legal and financial and family situations that I am hopeful you will intervene to bring to an end. Please have the investigation ended. The stress related to the investigation is slowly killing me. My anxiety and depression about the investigation is immobilizing and incapacitating me. I know that if the investigators believed me and the situation was over I would be better able to cope with all the other problems. My sons don’t know about the investigation. I didn’t want them to have that worry. Also please help expedite approval for my claim for social security disability. I have 9 herniated discs and other degenerative disease. I need that income in order to prevent foreclosure. I want to return to work and will need your help to find a part-time job to supplement my income. But the priority right now is intercession to end the investigation so that I can move on and heal from the shock of going through this. Also, on a more positive note, please also give your blessings to a hopefully new relationship and make our reunion for the date successful-we had 1 date 5 years ago and he contacted me again. Hopefully it will progress to a long-term relationship. Bless both my sons, and help my youngest son find peace and happiness, freedom from drug abuse taking pain killers for knee injury, and the ability to return to work. To further complicate matters my youngest son’s girlfriend is pregnant. Neither he nor the girlfriend are happy in the relationship, nor are they ready to be devoted, responsible and loving parents. I pray that she will change her mind about keeping the baby and place the baby for adoption instead. There are so many couples desperate for children and who could give the child a better life. This breaks my heart. Please intercede. I doubt that she will place the baby for adoption which means they will all be living with me. I praise God with you patrons and all the saints forever. I promise, blessed Saints, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patrons, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. I love you dear Saints Joseph, Anthony, Padre Pio and Jude. I know that everyone has significant problems but I am begging for prayer and even a miracle-I have a lot of people relying on me, and now possibly a little baby who will need a good and loving home. I will need daily prayer for at least a month. God bless you Sisters. Thank you. Amen

  23. I am going to pray this novena for so many needs that I have. I spent 2.5 years waiting for my boyfriend/fiance so that we could get married and have a good Catholic marriage, but I finally discover he had been lying to me about his past all this time. He was developing a Catholic faith, and we seemed to have a beautiful and trusting relationship, but after confessing his lies, our relationship collapsed and became very negative. So, he left me finally and I am alone with pain, wasted time, lost money investments: a catastrophe for my life. Saint Joseph has always helped me and I need him to help me now.

  24. Dear Saint Joseph, You are my Patron Saint. Please pray for me that God may have mercy on me and give me a well paying job to enable me my family needs.

  25. Dear Saint Joseph please intercede for me to Jesus to bring a man in my life who is loving and caring and later settle down. Also pray for my Ex- boyfriend to open his heart,eyes and see the mistakes he is making/going to make.

  26. Please pray for love, health and happiness for myself and my kids. We have been through a difficult few years, but I remain hopeful that what I long for in my heart will be found. Thank you for the blessings given to me daily and pray for my beloved parents and Gram…I miss her daily.
