Saint Joseph Prayer, Protector of Life, Marriage, and Families By Father Shenan J. Boquet
Glorious Saint Joseph, in holy obedience you became the protector of Mary and Jesus dedicating your life to the service of God’s providential plan of salvation. With great confidence, I implore your powerful intercession before the throne of the Most Holy Trinity.
Today, the sacredness of life, marriage, and the family are under siege by the forces of Evil. As you did protect the Holy Child and His mother from the wrath of King Herod, I beg your protection of every life, from the moment of conception to natural death and also humbly ask you to guard and shield each marriage and family from the wiles of the enemy who seeks their destruction.
Gracious Saint Joseph, as model of husbandry and manhood, help every husband and man to respect, love, defend, and serve life. Intercede for your brothers who have lost their way, blind to the gift of life. Pray for them to see, accept, and understand God’s will for them as you did.
Patron of the Universal Church, pray for me and my intentions. Amen.
