Hey All,

I was handed down a St Joseph Statue from my father, but he does not have the prayer card. Can anyone help me here. Maybe someone can email me the prayer from there card or direct me to a link with the exact words. I did a search and found different prayers that I don't think it has to do with the statue.

Thank you so much in advance.

This is the novena to St. Joseph that I know.

Oh St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so
strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I
place in you all my interests and desires.

Oh St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful
intercession and obtain for me from your
Divine Son all spiritual blessings through
Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged
here below your Heavenly power I may offer my
Thanksgiving and Homage to the Loving of
Fathers.

Oh St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you
and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not
approach while He reposes near your heart.

Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head
for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I
draw my dying breath.

St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray
for us.
Amen

I have a friend who buried a St. Joseph statue next to her for sale sign, upside down, facing the street. Her house sold in 3 months.

Please forgive my ignorance, but I just have a question? Why don't you pray directly to God? Isn't that what Scripture tells us to do? Just wondering.

If you are praying the Novena to St. Joseph then you are probably Roman Catholic. If you are Roman Catholic you believe in the intercession of saints so it would be part of your doctrine.

Jinxor: Thanks, but that still doesn't answer my question. Why don't you just pray directly to God? This is what I'm not understanding. Can someone tell me?

What is a Novena? My mom would say Novenas and I never knew what that meant. Any ideas?
