Prayer to Saint Joseph to Obtain a Special Favor

O blessed Saint Joseph, tender-hearted father, faithful guardian of Jesus, chaste spouse of the Mother of God, we pray and beseech thee to offer to God the Father, His divine Son, bathed in blood on the cross for sinners, and through the thrice-holy Name of Jesus, obtain for us from the eternal Father the favor we implore. Appease the Divine anger so justly inflamed by our crimes, beg of Jesus mercy for thy children. Amid the splendours of eternity, forget not the sorrows of those who suffer, those who pray, those who weep; stay the Almighty arm which smites us , that by thy prayers and those of thy most holy Spouse, the Heart of Jesus may be moved to pity and to pardon. Amen. Saint Joseph, Pray for us.
