Dear St. Joseph,
When I think God gave me my guardian angel and St. Michael to daily watch over me and defend me, I’m not afraid. But then, when I think that you, you who are even more powerful before God, are my spiritual father when I think that you are the “terror of demons”, when I think of how you protected the baby Jesus from Herod, then I’m completely at peace (or at least I know I should be).
St. Joseph, please pray that I will have the peace that comes from trusting in your fatherly protection. St. Joseph, I believe that you will protect me from my enemies, seen and unseen. I believe that you will protect me from bodily and spiritual harm. I trust in your fatherly care. St. Joseph, I will do my best not to give in to fear, knowing that you are praying for me in a special way as a child who has formally consecrated himself to your fatherly care.
St. Joseph, Strong Guardian,
please defend me with your prayers.
