Novena Prayer to Saint Joseph

O holy and blessed Joseph,
prince of David’s royal line and humble carpenter,
you served as thhe strong foster father of God’s own Son!
You were his tender and faithful guardian,
chaste sacrificing spouse of Mary, the holy Mother of God
and vigilant protector of Christ’s Church.

Teach me to praise God the Father
through his divine Son who died on the cross
and rose again to give us sinners new life.
Through the holy Name of Jesus, revealed to you by an angel,
pray with me that I may obtain from the eternal Father
the favor I seek.  (Mention request here)  Amen.
