Saint Joseph, foster-father and protector of Jesus Christ, spouse of the blessed Virgin Mary the Mother of God, powerful protector of the Holy Church, to you do I raise my heart and hands to implore your powerful intercession. You searched nothing else in this world but the glory of God and the good of others. You gave yourself completely to the Savior, it was cause for joy to pray, to work, to sacrifice yourself, to suffer, to die for him. You were unknown in this world even though Jesus knew you very well, he would look at your simple and hidden life with complacency. Saint Joseph, you have helped so many people so far I come to you with great trust. In the light of God you can see what misses me, you know my worries, my difficulties, my sorrow. I commend to your fatherly sollicitude this specific task... (find employment for example). I am placing it in your hands that saved child-Jesus. Ask for the grace to never separate me from Jesus by the mortal sin, to know him ant love him even more and his blessed Mother, to always live in the presence of God, to do anything for his glory and the good of other souls, and one day to reach the beatific vision of God to praise him eternally with you. Amen.

This novena is an extract from the book The Glories of Saint Joseph
Saint joseph foster father of Jesus Christ Our Lord, so graceful Father, Spouse of the Virgin Mary, your whole life was saint and just, that is why no fear could have disturbed, when you were dying, your desire for Heaven. Saint Joseph, special patron of the dying persons, I commend my soul living and dying. When my life is approaching its end, implore for me, with Mary, your Holy Spouse and our Mother, the grace of your divine Son, so that, faithful, with strong hope and with ardent charity, let the prince of darkness have no power over me and yield up my soul in the sweetest peace in the arms of the Father, after receiving Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Amen.
