Prayer To St. Joseph The Worker

O glorious St. Joseph, you are obedient to the angel to take our Mother Mary as your wife and thus you are honored to become the head and master of the house and dwelling of the Holy Family in Nazareth. You were devoted to care for them in all their earthly needs.

We present to you Wisma St. Joseph and its journey of faith. Accompany us with your prayers on this mission of evangelization and construction to build the Lord a house in the Diocese of Miri. Intercede for us that our plans will advance and increase the kingdom and reign of your Son Jesus Christ in the life of the people within the Diocese of Miri. As we want to build the Lord a house, help us to never forget that the Lord dwells with a people of humble and contrite heart.

V. He made him the lord of His household.

R. And prince over all His possessions.

Let us pray.

O God, who in your ineffable providence chose Saint Joseph to be the spouse of your most Holy Mother, grant that as we venerate him as our protector on earth, we may deserve to have him as our intercessor in heaven, You Who live and reign for ever and ever.

R. Amen.
