St. Joseph Novena

st. joseph novenaSt. Joseph is a powerful patron. He is, as John Paul II called him, the Guardian of the Redeemer. He humbly accepted his role as guardian, husband and father in the Holy Family. Therefore, St. Joseph’s intercession has been sought for centuries.

St. Joseph was clearly very close to our Lord and so we come to him with this novena with a sense of humility because of his great humility.

There are actually a few different feast days for Saint Joseph, but March 19th has been most celebrated as his feast day in Western Christianity. But of course, you can pray a novena to him anytime.


St. Joseph Answers Prayers

I started this novena a month and a half after my husband was released from his job. He had one interview but no job offers. Thankfully on the 7th day, he received a job offer and starts his new job and career a week from tomorrow. Thank you St. Joseph and the Lord for hearing my prayers!

Thanks be to God through the intercession of St. Joseph!!! The contract for our new house was signed today on St. Joseph’s feast day…the day after I finished the novena!

More About St. Joseph

Most of everything we know about Saint Joseph comes from Scripture. There is some disagreement about his genealogy, but both Mark and Matthew say his descent is from David, the greatest king of Israel — and yet, he was a very humble, working man. He was a carpenter.

It is said that it was probably in Nazareth that St. Joseph was betrothed to and married Mary. After discovering that Mary was pregnant, also after their betrothal, he knew that the child was not his – and as such, he had planned on divorcing her quietly.

However, an angel came to him in a dream and told him that the child Mary was carrying was the son of God. Immediately upon hearing this, Joseph took Mary as his wife.

The angel came a second time to tell him his family was in danger, and he also reacted immediately by leaving everything behind him — his family, friends, and all that he owned — to go to Egypt with Mary and their newborn baby, Jesus.

There is a lot we don’t know about St. Joseph, but we do know that he loved Jesus as his own son, he respected God and he was a righteous man. (Matthew 1:18)

The very next morning, I’ve been scheduled for an interview. I keep on praying this novena especially during times I feel like God is paving a way for me towards it. I pray this novena when I’m too tensed, to ask for guidance. Then I was called again for a second interview after a major cull out. It felt really nerve-racking, thinking I am too near yet still too far away from it. After a month of patiently waiting and believing, I have been called for a job offer. I am grateful to no end.

This sewer line and easement was unknown to us when we purchased the home. Now we are have difficulty trying to sell. We have 4 children and have outgrown our house. Also, we have no support system close to us. We are praying that we can sell our home and move onto the next chapter of our lives. We are grateful for all that we have so please do not mistake this. We just do not have enough bedrooms and living with a home on the market has crated a lot of stress in our family. Please pray for us.

  28. I lost my job in June and became very depressed because I was having difficulty finding another position. My bills were billing up and money was scarce. I woke up about 4am one morning and googled “novena prayers for unemployment”. I found the prayer to St. Joseph as well as St. Anthony and began praying. During week four of the novena I was offered a position and start in three weeks. Not only did saying the novena help me obtain a job it also restored my faith which I lost a while ago. I have found so much more than a job. Thank you St. Joseph and St. Anthony.

  29. Thank you Jesus, Blessed Mother and st Joseph. My son has 2 job offers the one he already got is electrical in oil field. Yesterday they called him from the school. He is going to classes to get a teaching degree. They want him to work with special ed children pray that he makes the right choice. He really doesn’t know what to do. I am financially in trouble have been helping him. He has ADD, DEXLEXIA AND DEPRESSION. He did very well in oil field in July. But had a anxiety attack at his workshop. Please pray for him.

  30. Please St Joseph help me find suitable employment. I haven’t work for a few years after receiving redundancy. Please help me get back into the work environment and get me out of this rut i am in. Help me to help myself and regain my confidence. Please pray that I find peace in my mind and look after my family. Protect my husband and children from harm and eliminate all the negativity that has been in our lives for the past few years. Hear my prayers


  31. I prayed the novena of st.joseph and on the nineth day I received a miracle, a financial assistance for our family. As of today I still continue to pray for urgent employment. God is good all the time.

  32. Joseph I pray that the Lord with my husband who is doubting our marriage and our life together. For now I believe he is only staying for our son and because he wants to choose us, please draw him nearer to you and have our Lord fill his heart with the love and joy that you have filled mine. Please turn his heart to me and remind him of the love that we have and that our future is not one of misery but great love, passion, and His will.

    I also pray for my work. I pray that I find something that could fill me with Joy and Happiness. I pray that the people that I work with find joy and not be so negative always gossiping and complaining. I pray for them daily. Joseph please bring my petitions up!


  33. Pray for strength and wisdom for a test that will be very trying and tough. to have a clear mind and concentration during the test.

  34. I pray that I am able to secure a position where I can be happy and be of service to others. A role where I can do what God has intended me to.

    Over the last year I have been very unhappy at my place of work. Been treated unkindly and unfairly. I admit that I could have responded differently, worn a happy face and pretended that all was well. Sadly, I wear my heart on my sleeve and this has led to further unkindness, discrimination and subtle bullying. As a result I’ve lost my passion for my role and confidence in myself, abilities and skills.

    I’ve learnt many harsh lessons and have grown as a person. I wish that, like Joseph, I had listened when I was guided to leave my role and place of work sooner. Rather than prolonging and enduring the pain, sadness for longer than was necessary.

    Deep down I know that I am capable of more and that God has a plan for me. I know that I am here to make a difference so I pray that I can be shown the way, led to where I’m meant to be and ask; Where do you want me to go? What do you want me to do? What do you want me to say and to whom?

    I want to feel passion again, peace at work and happiness. I’d like to be valued for the effort and hard work that I put into my role, as well as helping others.

    My confidence in myself maybe lacking but I have confidence in St Joseph and God to bring light and place me where I’m meant to be so that I can be of service. I pray that I will receive positive references and secure a new job.

    Please guide me in the right direction.

    Thank you. Amen.

    • This sounds exactly like my husband’s situation. I have begun this novena for him with the intention that he will find a new job that will provide well for our family and make him happy. Saint Joseph Most Just, pray for us!

    • I’ve been feeling this way for a long time. I have been praying for something different. I’ve been praying for Him to show me His will for me on this earth. I feel like I am being called to do so much more than what I am doing now. I am praying and being patient that He is setting up something great for me.

      Your comment really stood out to me. Thank you and I will pray for you.

  35. Please intercede on my behalf. I have had such stress and I have a great opportunity to make a big change today. Please guide me in all I do.

  36. St.Joseph,
    I pray that I am able to continue to help others in a new position where I can truly use the talents you’ve given me. I seek your guidance with a heavy heart. It’s been so hard this past year and a half and need to move on so I can be happy once again. I feel trapped and am beginning to lose my passion in my service to others in my current profession. I would love to use my talents in a rewarding position that balance my work and personal life so I can enjoy my time on this Earth. My job is taking away too much time away from my husband and he’s the only one left since God has the rest. Please guide me in the right direction so that I can do what God intended for me to do and rekindle my true passion for life.

    • For a moment I had written your comment and forgotten about it. Your situation is so similar to mine.

      I join you in prayer and ask that the Lord lift you up. I pray that you will be guided in the right direction and be able to complete God’s mission for you. You deserve the best.

      God bless you and yours.


      • Thank you. Yes, our struggles are very similar. I’m sure that together our prayers will be heard and we will soon find a position that ignites our passion once again. God has given us talents to be used to help others and I’m sure he has better things in store for us. I just hope it is soon.

  37. St. Joseph,
    Please intercede on my behalf to our Lord and His Blessed Mother for my brother RDB to pass the employment background checks where his application is currently pending at.

  38. St.Joseph, intercede for me to your son our Lord Jesus Christ to help my husband find suitable, honest and dignified employment quickly.

I know that my other prayer will be answered soon and I faithfully await for it to come.

  42. My son has been out of work for 4 mos. After many resumes sent out, phone interviews, face-to-face interviews, multiple meetings with contacts that could possibly help, nothing. He was getting very depressed and dejected. I began my Novena to St. Joseph, and today was the last day. A few minutes ago my son told me he got offered a job with a great company. Thank you, St. Joseph, for your intercession with our Lord and His Blessed Mother! I will be forever grateful! Amen.

  43. St. Joseph, please intercede for me to find clients for my business. I lost my job a year and three months ago; with the money that I have saved I opened a business. I need help to get clients in other to pay my bills and taking care of my young child. I am a single mother please have mercy on me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!

We have to be out of our house by November.

If we do not sell before the November I don’t think we will be able to survive another cold winter with no heat and with only having me to shovel and clear the snow on our property. I buried your statue with my prayers for a miracle to sell the house and be with our daughter. I beg of you to intercede on my behalf to our Lord God and Jesus to help us we are scared and with a pure heart and true faith that this prayer be answered. I beg of you to please answer our prayer and let us sell this house quickly we don’t want much not even what the value of it is just enough to pay off our mortgage and help us start get out of debt. As I said I buried your statue as instructed and will un bury it on the day of the closing and placing the statue in a special place in our new home. I even know where so that i can give thanks everyday for answering our prayer quickly. This i ask with all my love and true faith in you AMEN

St. Joseph pray for me.

  56. Thanks St. Joseph for answered prayers. It is the first time i prayed St. Joseph Novena. I am 40 years never been married, so i was praying for my Fiance who lives in a different continent to come and officially meet my parents for their blessings as it is required of African Culture. 10 days after the Novena my Fiance called to say he has booked his flight.

I pray for all those who were bewitching and cursing me for God to change them. Amen
