Father’s Day Novena Day 9

DAY NINE 

O good Saint Joseph, help us to be like you, gentle to those whose weakness leans on us; help us to give to those who seek our aid, succor that they may journey unafraid. Give us your faith, that we may see the right shining above the victories of might. Give us your hope that we may stand secure, untouched by doubting, steadfast to endure. Give us your love that as the years increase an understanding heart may bring us peace. Give us your purity that the hour of death finds us untouched by evil’s breath. Give us your love of labor that we shirk no lot in life that calls us for honest work. Give us your love of poverty so that we live contented, let wealth come or go. Give us your courage that we may be strong; give us your meekness to confess our sins. Give us your patience that we may possess the kingdom of our souls without distress. Help us, dear Saint, to live that when life ends we pass with you to Jesus and His friends. 

O Glorious Saint Joseph, hear our prayers and obtain our petitions. Amen. (request)

Saint Joseph, pray for us!  

O glorious Saint Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, to you we raise our hearts and hands to implore your powerful intercession in obtaining from the benign heart of Jesus all the helps and graces necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly for the grace of a happy death and the special favor we now request. (mention your request)

O guardian of the Word Incarnate, we feel animated with confidence that your prayers in our behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God.

O glorious St. Joseph, through the love you bear to Jesus Christ and for the glory of His name, hear our prayers and obtain our petitions. Amen.

    Sweet St. Joseph please take our request for all men who are fathers, those who will be fathers and those whose opportunity to fathers has been taken away from them to Our Father. Please open their heart to welcome the opportunity to be God’s mirror of love, may they be the models for a greatness in fatherhood with love unending for their children and wives. May their eyes be open to all the shrewdness of the devil, may they question even the smallest of temptations for themselves put more for their families. Fill them with patience, kindness, gentleness, honesty, honor, respect, responsibility, but most of all obedience to Your word. Amen
