God Loves to Work Through Our Prayers // The St. Joseph Novena

New here? Join us in prayer! Click here to get novena reminders by email!

The next novena we’ll pray together is through the intercession of a powerful patron saint. 

Saint John Paul II called him the Guardian of the Redeemer. He’s also known as the Protector of the Church, the Terror of Demons, Hope of the Sick and Comfort of the Sorrowing. He has many titles and patronages!

It’s St. Joseph :)

We’ll start praying the St. Joseph, Husband of Mary Novena together on Friday, March 10th.

We’re looking forward to praying with you! Because prayer is powerful and it does something — it changes things — even when we don’t feel it or see its effects, and God loves to work through our prayers. Here’s a short reflection from our Lenten Retreat about that:

About St. Joseph:

St. Joseph humbly accepted his role as guardian, husband and father in the Holy Family. That’s why St. Joseph’s intercession has been sought for centuries. St. Joseph was clearly very close to our Lord and his prayers are powerful!

  30. Please pray for my son. I have lost track of what novenas and rosaries I am doing to set right the life and attitude of my son. God has blessed him with immense success in academics. He was all the way an ardent follower of Jesus right from his childhood up until today. Always used to praise God for everything and gave Thanks. He questions faith and thinks praying does not help anymore today. He has been engulfed by Unchristian, Non Christian friends who are motivating him to deviate from Jesus. Hence today I beg Jesus, all praying people here to join and agree with me to release my son from the clutches of H, I, Non-believers, M, M, P, K now as I write to you Jesus. Free him from evil spirits and bless him with Your light Jesus. Erase the word I, H and all other Ungodly, Unholy people from his body, mind, spirit and soul. Cleanse his body, Jesus, cleanse his tongue and mouth and fill with Your word and bring him back to your path. May all paths he treads lead to You Holy Mary. May all Ungodly leave him now and forever Jesus! Amen
