Prayer to St. Joseph the Provider
Joseph, with Jesus and Mary, you knew hunger, uncertainty and illness.
You turned your heart to God to lift up your needs and provide for your family.
In faith you accepted the Father’s response as events unfolded.
Be with us today as we offer our intercessions
to the Father.
Blessed Joseph, let us recognize God’s will
as we open our hands to accept what God bestows in loving kindness.
With tenderness, God fills creation with life and love, with the bounty and fruitfulness that nourishes us physically and spiritually.
Open our eyes to the wonders that God works without ceasing and help us to be attentive to how we use God’s gifts, especially as we serve the poor and hungry.
Let us learn the true work of the disciple of Christ, which you were, as we discover within ourselves the lowly ones that God commends. Amen.
— Paraphrased from a prayer of the
Oratory of St. Joseph in Montreal, Quebec.
