Novena to St. Joseph
O glorious St. Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, to thee do we raise our hearts and hands to implore thy powerful intercession in obtaining from the benign Heart of Jesus all the helps and graces necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death, and the special favor we now implore (state your petition). O Guardian of the Word Incarnate, we have confidence that thy prayers on our behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God. Amen. (Then say the following seven times in honor of the seven sorrows and joys of St. Joseph.) V. O Glorious St. Joseph! Through thy love for Jesus Christ and for the glory of His Name, R. Hear our prayers and obtain our petitions. V. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, R. Assist us!
Prayer to St. Joseph to Obtain a Special Favor
O blessed Saint Joseph, tenderhearted father, faithful guardian of Jesus, chaste spouse of the Mother of God, we pray and beseech thee to offer to God the Father His divine Son, bathed in blood on the Cross for sinners, and through the thrice-holy Name of Jesus, obtain for us from the Eternal Father the favor we implore. (Name your request.) Appease the Divine anger so justly inflamed by our crimes, beg of Jesus mercy for thy children. Amid the splendors of eternity, forget not the sorrows of those who suffer, those who pray, those who weep; stay the Almighty arm which smites us, that by thy prayers and those of thy most holy spouse, the Heart of Jesus may be moved to pity and to pardon. Amen. St. Joseph, pray for us.
Prayer to St. Joseph the Workman
Composed by Pope St. Pius X O glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.
Fr. Lallemant's Powerful Novena to St. Joseph
This powerful novena has proven especially effective in obtaining favors through the intercession ofSt. Joseph. The novena was devised by the celebrated Fr. Louis Lallemant, S.J. (1588-1635) of France, a saintly priest and master of spiritual life, to whom St. Joseph never denied any request. Urging two young priests to make this novena, he promised their every request would be fulfilled through St. Joseph s intercession in return for their display of special honor and devotion. One priest, who requested grace to speak and write worthily of the Lord, returned after reflection saying he wished to request a different grace. Fr. Lallemant replied: It is too late now to ask for another grace. The first has already been granted. In deed, the priest became one of the most noted preachers and writers of his day, through this novena to St. Joseph.
How to Make this Novena: No specific prayers are necessary. Each day for 9 days, turn to St. Joseph in spirit honoring him 4 times throughout the day. During each visit, consider one of the following aspects of St. Joseph, remembering to thank God for honoring St. Joseph and, through his intercession, request a similar grace: - 1st Visit: St. Joseph s Fidelity to Grace & the Holy Ghost s action in his soul. - 2nd Visit: St. Joseph s Fidelity to the Interior Life & Spirit of Recollection. - 3rd Visit: St. Joseph s Love for Our Lady. - 4th Visit: St. Joseph s Love for the Divine Child.

Seemed like regular font size Review by dkbi

It is EXACTLY what you think it is (Its a small booklet, not a full book) Review by Fr. M. David
Many short prayers, devotions, novenas and the like; also it has very brief blurbs by saints who discussed their own devotion to St. Joseph. I also find they are good for giving altar servers and others just as a small token of appreciation. St. Joseph is my go-to-guy and I've used this book for years under its different covers.

St. Joseph Review by JS
The large size print St. Joseph Prayer Book is wonderful!!! I have great devotion to St. Joseph, and he has interceded to Our Dear Lord many times on my behalf. Being able to have a Prayer Book of Prayers and Devotions to him has made it possible for me to be able to read and pray without straining my eyes to see the small print that is on most prayer books. Favorite Prayers to St. Joseph is my daily companion, and I read it often throughout the day. (Posted on 2/23/2014)
My new go-to prayer book Review by Cordelia
My new favorite prayer booklet. This is one of two that I carry with me in my purse at all times. We underestimate how powerful St. Joseph is! Go to Joseph! There are so many prayers in this booklet that you will surely find many to suit your needs. The book is very nicely produced. The typeface is smallish but still readable. I have dozens of prayer books and this is the one I go to most, especially when I need to pray for help with a particular problem. (Posted on 11/21/2013)
all inclusive devotional Review by MEL "Xibis Mom"
This prayer book has lead me to a much deeper appreciation for the foster father of Our Lord. It has all the best prayers laid out with inspirational quotes from the bible and from the saints encouraging devotion to the second greatest saint in existence. If you are searching for that hard to find prayer or just want to begin to know this holy humble guardian of Christ, this is the book for you. I have received an answer to every intention I have commited to his care. Deo Gratias. (Posted on 6/11/2013)
A wonderful little book Review by Amazon Customer "Chris Hudson"
This is an excellent prayer book, full of prayers that focus on St Joseph and his intercession. There are several different novenas, prayers for different occasions, blessings, and brief stories. As foster father to Our Lord, St. Joseph's intercessory power is probably second only to the Blessed Virgin Mary herself. I have always loved this wonderful saint who is an excellent role model for husbands and fathers. This wonderful pocket-sized prayer book is well worth buying. (Posted on 11/25/2003)
