6 Uplifting Prayers to St Joseph for Family

The best way to secure the future of your family is by lifting them up to the Lord in prayer. These uplifting prayers to St. Joseph for family will offer you the encouragement needed to grow.

Prayer #1

Gracious St. Joseph, protect me and my family from all evil as you did the Holy Family. Kindly keep us ever united in the love of Christ, ever fervent in imitation of the virtue of our Blessed Lady, your sinless spouse, and always faithful in devotion to you. Amen.

Prayer #2

O glorious St. Joseph, to you God committed the care of His only begotten Son amid the many dangers of this world. We come to you and ask you to take under your special protection the children God has given us. Through holy baptism they became children of God and members of His holy Church. We consecrate them to you today, that through this consecration they may become your foster children. Guard them, guide their steps in life, form their hearts after the hearts of Jesus and Mary.

St. Joseph, who felt the tribulation and worry of a parent when the child Jesus was lost, protect our dear children for time and eternity. May you be their father and counsellor. Let them, like Jeus, grow in age as well as in wisdom and grace before God and men. Preserve them from the corruption of his world, and give us the grace one day to be united with them in Heaven forever.

Amen

 

Prayer #3

Gracious St Joseph, protect my family and all other families from danger, as you did protect the baby Jesus and His mother from the wrath of king Herod.

Pray for us, that we respect, love and care for each other in our family as you were with Mary and Jesus. Help us to be understanding and forgiving towards each other.

Most of all St Joseph, bring us closer to Jesus. St Joseph, please pray for our family. Amen.

Prayer #4

Glorious St. Joseph, model of all who are devoted to labour,
obtain for me the grace to work in the spirit of penance in expiation of my many sins;
to work conscientiously by placing love of duty above my inclinations;
to gratefully and joyously deem it an honour to employ and to develop by labour the gifts I have received from God,
to work methodically, peacefully,
and in moderation and patience,
without ever shrinking from it through weariness or difficulty to work;
above all, with purity of intention and unselfishness,
having unceasingly before my eyes death
and the account I have to render of time lost, talents unused,
good not done, and vain complacency in success,
so baneful to the work of God.

All for Jesus, all for Mary, all to imitate thee, O patriarch St. Joseph!
This shall be my motto for life and eternity.

Prayer #5

O Blessed Joseph,
you gave your last breath
in the loving embrace of Jesus and Mary.
When the seal of death shall close my life,
come with Jesus and Mary to aid me.
Obtain for me this solace for that hour
to die with their holy arms around me.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I commend my soul,
living and dying, into your sacred arms. Amen.

Prayer #6

Blessed St. Joseph, I consecrate myself to your honor and give myself to you, that you may always be my father, my protector and my guide in the way of salvation. Obtain for me great purity of heart and a fervent love of the interior life. After your example, may I perform my actions for the greater Glory of God, in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Pray for me, Saint Joseph, that I may experience the peace and joy of your holy death. Amen.
