Prayer: Saint Joseph, Come to Help Us

Prayer: Saint Joseph, Come to Help Us

Glorious Saint Joseph,
most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary,
we beg you through the heart of Jesus,
grant us your personal protection.

Your power extends to every need
and knows how to change the impossible into the possible.

Let your fatherly eyes look upon the needs of your children.

In the difficulties and the sorrows that come our way
we turn to you in confidence,
placing in your loving care our present cause of concern,
no matter how serious or burdensome.

Let there be a happy outcome
for the glory of God
and for the good of your devoted servants.

So be it.


– Saint Francis de Sales
