Oh great St. Joseph, whose influence over the hearts of
Jesus and Mary is all powerful and who hast never been invoked
in vain, I ask, with the most firm and lively confidence, the
speedy granting of my request. [State your petition.]
Dear St. Joseph, obtain for me the object of my prayer if it be
for the glory of God and my own salvation; but if it is not, then
obtain for the grace lovingly to resign myself to the will of my
heavenly father, who in the afflictions he permits, as well as the
temporal favors he grants me, has in view only my happiness
here and my eternal salvation.
Now pray the Lord's Prayer, Hail Mary and Glory Be, three times, in thanksgiving to God for the graces and prerogatives bestowed on St. Joseph.
