To You, blessed Joseph, we come with confidence in this hour of need, trusting in your powerful protection. Your loving service to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and your fatherly affection for the Child Jesus inspire us with faith in the power of your intercession before the throne of God.
We pray, first of all, for the Church: that it may be free from error and corruption, and be a shining light of universal love and justice.
We ask your intercession for our loved ones in their trial and adversities, that they may be inspired by the love, obedience and affection of the Holy FAmily and be to each other a mutual source of consolation and Christian fidelity.
We ask your intercession also for our special need (here mention the grace desired).
Keep us one and all under your protection so that, strengthened by your example and assistance we may lead a holy life, die a happy death, and come to the possession of everlasting happiness in Heaven.
