St. Joseph Novena

[This Novena begins on March 10th, Click here to join us in prayer! You will have the proper prayers sent directly to your inbox on the right days.]

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)

    Thank you brothers and sisters for praying for me and sending me novenas prayer. God bless!

  3. Thank you, St. Joseph, and others who prayed with me. My daughter’s high risk pregnancy tests have revealed she is having a healthy baby!

  4. I prayed the novena of St. Joseph asking for some clarity about what I should do in the future, and exactly on the feast of St. Joseph, the day after I finished the novena, I had a job interview. Now I was just told that I got the position :D
    Thank you, my dearest Saint!

  5. I had a biopsy done on my left breast on March 18, 2015. I know I was to have this done during the St Joseph novena. I prayed and asked St. Joseph to intercede for me that the biopsy was not cancerous. I received word on Monday that it was cancer free. Thank you Heavenly Father and St. Joseph?

  6. St joseph..i proclaim that shane will responce me now,bless our relationship..heal hes dad and also me i will pray that all my prayer will answer Amen

  7. I have been striving, for 3+years, through prayer, support and legal process to have my husband’s heart changed and for him to stop pursuing a divorce from me. I have major health problems and had chosen to accept what financial support my husband had been giving me, though I was going into debt for treatment, and legal counsel. This past December I needed a large sum of money to continue fighting this awful “No-fault divorce law” that we have. I have specifically sought the intercession of the Holy Family and particularly St Joseph. The money I needed did not come, but the Judge did apply as much justice as this awful law allows, to me. My husband had until 5pm March 19th, 2015, to retract his decision – The Feast of St Joseph The Husband – but he did not. While my heart is very broken, and I observe the destruction of my husband’s decision on our family, I thank St Joseph, and the Whole Holy Family, for God has allowed this to pass. God now is wholly responsible for my husband’s conversion, though I pray for his soul. St Joseph is now the Head of my family and ‘my husband’ also. Thank you St Joseph.
    Apologies for the length, but it seemed pertinent.

  8. Thanks holy father
    St Joseph my father thank you so much. Prayer answered for Uni,amen.I will praise until Amen

    Know I am praying for my status , wisdom and knowledge for my course work. Amen

  9. Thank God I joined the Novena to St Joseph. I prayed and through the intercession of St Joseph my son passed his JAMB exam

  10. This may sound like a silly thing to ask for prayers for but I wish God would send me a genuine person to share my life with.

  11. I am so grateful for St. Joseph’s intercession in a way nothing but prayers to him could have answered. I have fallen behind in my mortgage payments and my house has been listed for sale for a few months, with no offers. Just before Christmas, my mortgage was purchased by another home loan organization who I have been in correspondence with. During this novena, I was notified they have just developed a new program, which will avoid any foreclosure proceedings while I am in the process of selling my house and once it is sold, they will award me with an extra incentive bonus. This program is new, I am only the third customer to be offered – I am so grateful to St. Joseph and to God to be blessed with knowing I will not have to worry about foreclosure while I am trying to sell my house. Also during this novena, a friend mailed a St. Joseph statue to me, which I will be burying into the ground with prayers for a quick sale. Thank you, St. Joseph.

    • Please would you give me the name of the program, as I have a dear friend in the same position as you, who could benefit from this program. Thank you & God bless you with a quick and lucrative sale.

  12. I finished St Joseph’s Novena last week and was wonderful. Form day one to the last and until now, I experienced things which I never seen happening in my house. I asked St Joseph to pray for my husband to be more caring, understandable and more loving without complaining. I showed St Joseph how worried I was one of the twines (boys) and insisted for my Husband to not be left without work. A lot changes now are happening in boy’s behaviour that everyone in the house is surprised. He is going for adoration every Saturday pm., he helping everyone in the house without complaining (a very new person now); he is accepting any observation given without being rude. He is going for his knee operation and he is also praying for that without me begging him. My Husband just just went back where he works but this time he was home was my best time really; he understood that I was very busy with school and work, and helped me with my Uni. work without me begging me and without complains. Any help I asked him for, was given with a smile. Thank you St Joseph for praying for my Husband to take you as an example; pleas keep praying for him so his spiritual life can also grow without me pushing him, and pray for all my 4 boys and my 2 girls. Although we are financially struggling, but we are feeling each other’s love and caring. Thanks a lot

They got the scan back and everything came back great. There was no cancer detected in her body, anywhere. The lump in her breast is gone.

  25. Dear St. Joseph,
    I know that Jesus does want me to be with someone special. I also would like this person to be a catholic.

    But I , haven’t seen any signs from God yet, to when this person will be coming towards me. And because of this, I am getting discouraged.
    So could you ask Jesus to spiritually guide me to the right person. And that this person will be spiritually guided towards me as well.
    Could you ask God to direct both us to each other.

  26. Please pray for me, my prayers were not answered I am so lost and confused in my life right now and I keep praying and am not even seeing a small sign. ??????? Lost and confused I am so deep in debt and am now going days without. Basic needs, food etc. Why

  27. My brother and I prayed this Novena to St. Joseph that if was God’s will to have a relationship with the son I had given up for adoption over 25 years ago, that door would be opened. After the 1st day, the door was opened wide and my first-born and I are now texting almost daily! God is good all the time! Thank you, St. Joseph.

  28. Please pray for a situation in my husband’s business that it is resolved quickly and that the outcome is in our favor, and I pray this through the intercession of St. Joseph, the Blessed Mother and Jesus!

  29. I had heard that St. Joesph helped with selling houses. My Husband and I are planning on moving to Charleston SC to be with our children. We are fixing up our house to put it on the market, during the novena I asked St Joseph if that was what God wanted us to do, if it was to send us a buyer. Today a friend called to ask if we were moving and if a friend of his could come and look at our house and how much we were asking. There isn’t even a for sell sign in the yard yet! May St Joseph continue to help us

  30. I pray for God’s blessings upon my family, we have been living with my parents for a long time in our old house. we’ve been trying with my sister to apply for a loan to build a new house unfortunately we were not entitled to anything at all. we need to own a land to guarantee a big loan.

    Please everyone help me with your prayers, may God bless you all. thank you.

  31. Thank You, Jesus, for the powerful intercession of St. Joseph for a healing through You! I have been sharing the various novenas on my FB page. With St. Joseph, I was so compelled to share a little something about his saintly example every day, evangelizing about our Communion of Saints. I have stage 4 colon cancer, mets to the lymph nodes, a 51 yr old wife and mother of 4. It has spread to my lungs. On the 9th day of the novena, I didn’t need a breathing treatment in the middle of the night. I woke up with less shortness of breath, the heaviness in my mid- chest was gone. I didn’t have pain with coughing. I took my breathing treatment looking out on the back woods of the rental house where we were staying for spring break, in tears of joy and gratitude. A cardinal alights in the nearest tree, a sign that God is with me ever since a dream I had May 10, 2014, one day after returning from a Medjugorje pilgrimage, before I was even diagnosed. God has prepared me for this trial and I will glorify Him through it all! My oncologist believes it’s the chemo (given a week earlier) kicking in on that particular day, he says he has to deal in science because God doesn’t tell him what His plans are. I, however, say there are no coincidences in my life, the hand of God is upon me! I prayed for a drop of Jesus’ Precious Blood to course through my veins with the chemo, healing me, through the powerful intercession of St. Joseph. I believe I shall be completely healed in God’s time, for His plan. Right now, I am a powerful witness in my weakness. Thank you, St. Joseph, for being such a holy example of faith and obedience! Praise be to God!

  32. Thank you St Joseph and God. Where do I start I am crying tears of joy as I type this email. In the last 3yrs I have been looking for work but things have been very difficult with many constraints and challenges.
    St Joseph has interceded on my behalf and God answered I was offered a job today just the perfect one for my circumstances. I know thank you is not enough but will say a big thank you to you all praying for one another and the amazing moderators Paul & Annie for being there for us. God bless you all.

  33. St. Joseph answered our prayers and granted my husband a good job with the firm he wanted to be with. He also spared him from one where he would have been unhappy. He starts next week!

  34. Thank you ST. JOSEPH
    !!! MY PrAYeR was answered within a few days. My family problem was resolved . Thanks be to God!!!!

  35. St. Joseph answered prayers for a priest to be reinstated to active ministry after over 3 years. He is overjoyed. Thank you, Saint Joseph for your intercession.

  36. God is good! After being on disability for 16 months, my husband was informed that he was being cut off from payments. I prayed the novena to St. Joseph and on the last day- his feast, my husband received confirmation of employment. The job he got had 160 people applying for it. God is faithful!!

  37. Thank you St. Joseph and God. Thanks to St. Joseph’s intercession I believe I have received much healing from it as well as my broken relationship. I really started feeling it on Day 7. I still do not know what God has in store for Spencer and I, but thanks to St. Joseph I am open to receive it (and I believe Spencer is too), and I know he will continue to assist Spencer and I.
    Thank you God for bestowing such blessings on St. Joseph.

  38. God is good … I requested my friend to pray to St. Joseph
    to sell her home…. Prayers answered !! She sold her house in two days time and thanks St.Joseph for his intercession. I have faith in St.Joseph too and thank him for shown my nephew the direction to his life… May God Bless him and help him as he moves on .

  39. I cannot say (yet) that, I have received an ‘answer to a prayer’, but each Novena I pray, helps me to grow spiritually. I have finally realized that I have a Father in Heaven – The Almighty God who loves me and cares for me and is with me all the time – even when I tend to forget!

    Now, I also have an ‘earthly’ father in St. Joseph whom I asked to protect me too.

    Thank you and looking forward to the next Novena.

  40. Amen !!! Amen!! Am stil waiting for my prayers to be answered by God, And I know God will answer me, my son refused ant entry visa because of altered document which I didn’t don’t that it was altered, so we were given a chance to appeal and appeal lodged waiting for outcome, guys help me in prayers so that my son can be granted a visa please!! Praise the Lold!!! Amen

  41. Dear prayer warriors
    Help me reach Father God today
    We need a breakthrough with my husbands health. He has a form of leukemia , he has lost weight and is simply not himself ( runs out of energy) He has always been very active. Dear God he loves you and he
    wants his life back. We have been struggling since 2008 financially and the bank has sued for our home . God gave us our home 37 years ago. We need to know what to do to pay off our home.. We are people that simply want to live in peace and we always always give our GOD all the glory for all the good that happens to us.
    In Jesus name I pray.
    Blanche

  42. After praying the novena to St Joseph, I had asked for help finding a new house out of state. After the novena ended, the realtor sent me 6 houses and
    ALL were what we were looking for. NOW to decide which one. Thanks to St. Joseph

  43. Thank you, St. Joseph, for your kind intercession! Both my husband and son returned from out of the country safely! Still hopeful that the other petitions placed before St. Joseph will be granted…knowing that these will take a little more time, but always praying in thanksgiving for favors granted! Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints!

  44. Thank you so much. I prayed this novena for my parents. They have been struggling with their house payments. I asked St.Joseph to help them sell their home to a Christian family that would pay them a fair price. I also prayed thst the doors be opened for them to find an affordable place to live as they are on a fixed income. On the last day I received word that the house sold for the asking price and the new owner was not going to live in the house. He wanted to rent it. They signed an agreement and parents are able to stay in the home they know and love. Thank you St.Joseph for hearing my prayers and sending us this beautiful blessing.

  45. St.Joseph too care of mom’s peaceful death at a Catholic Nursing home named after St.Joseph. And Mom’s funeral Holy Mass took place March 18 same day of her passing on at her patron saint since childhood St.Anthony of Padua Church. Mom was given Ectreme Unction a day before and same priest of St.Anthony Church officiated the Holy Mass for Mom. It was St.Joseph with Our Lady who facilitated all these to Our Lord JESUS .
    PRAISE GOD ALMIGHTY!!!!

  46. My daughter and her husband were on the verge of separation and seemed to be at war with each other. Their two children were devastated. St. Joseph heard my prayers and interceded. Two days after the novena, they (guided by the Holy Spirit I am sure) decided they could work things out. Thank you, St. Joseph patron of fathers, families, and people in doubt.

  47. Please pray for me to get a job or consulting contract. The financial strain on my wife & our marriage is taking a toll.
    Also want you to pray for my son who is having a challenging time adjusting to work & life. This has led to a loss of confidence, anxiety & depression.
    I would also like you to join me thank God for my wife who turned 50. She is a wonderful human being.

  48. I’ve been praying this novena over and over for the past few months in preparation for a huge mess of selling, renting, and buying we had in our future. And in this last week we sold our old house to current tenants, we set up a 3 yr lease on our current house, and we found the perfect house to buy- and they accepted our offer! Praise God, I expected months of stress and it was settled in less than 2 weeks with no hassle! Thank you St Joseph!

  49. After doing this novena , my prayers were answered and my son gets half custody of his little girl and after 7 weeks of not seeing her; she will be with him for a week on and a week off. Now we can love and teach her of God and His love as I did my son.

  50. My 91 year old mother Lillian was in decline under hospice. I was saying the St. Joseph novena for a peaceful happy death for her. She died ON Thursday, the feastday of St. Joseph, sooner than anyone thought. Very peacefully.

  51. I prayed this novena together and i have been answered, I asked St Josephy a patron of workers to help me to reach a highest position at my work place taking into consideration my highest qualification and on 23 March, 2015 i met one of the country directors at her home where she promised me to raise my salary and i have been drafted into the board to be one of the team leader. My prayer has been answered. St Josephy pray for us

  52. Thank you so much St. Joseph for my answered prayer. I have just landed a new job opportunity and still waiting on outcome of my husband’s interview.

  53. For 9 days I prayed to St. Joseph to meet someone like him. Someone I could share my life with, someone I could trust and talk to and love. All my life I have taken care of my family, and later in this life I wanted to meet someon share the rest of my life with. On the 9th day toward the end of the night my prayers were not answered. I cried and prayed and asked St. Joseph even though my prayers for this Novena have not been answered now — please give me a sign that you heard me and that you would intercede for me and they would be answered maybe not now but later. I also asked if there was this special person to let me see him even though the time was not right then. About an hour later after midnight, there was a fire in my building. We had to evacuate — it went through the building but my apt. was not touched, thank God. As I was waiting in the lobby a group of firefighters came in — one of the firefighters came in the door with his firefighting gear, recognized me from our local convenience store getting coffee every morning. He shouted, there is my gal who I meet at the coffee bar every morning. In the midst of everything I smiled at him and him at me and he was gone. No one got hurt, the apt. building was OK except for water and smoke in the basement and after hours of being outside we made it in our own places and slept the night safely. Thank you St. Joseph and Our Lord for giving me some sign that hope is still alive.

  54. Prayed for a second interview for a job I would really like to get and got the call back! God has a plan for everyone!

  55. We prayed for our home to sell/close and it did!!! :-) Thank you for this wonderful way to bring more prayer time into our lives!

  56. i prayed for my current relationship that was tumultuous…there has since been resolution and love, and the ability to talk/listen through miscommunications….Thank You St. Joseph.

  57. Prayed for two friends with cancer, that the Cancer hadn’t spread. They both had follow-up CT Scans at the end of the novena and the Cancer has NOT spread.

  58. Thank You St. Joseph for the answered prayers. I prayed the novena for my son and daughters job situation to come to a good resolution. This has happened for both. They also found peace while going through the turmoil.

  59. After praying for 10 years that my husband would turn Catholic, he did on Saint Patrick day. He took Saint Joseph as his confirmation Saint. We both went to communion on Saint Joseph feast day. One of the happiest days of my life.

  60. The intention I lifted up to St. Joseph in prayer was to find an internship that allowed me to finish my training and spent my first year of marriage with my spouse. After several years of being in a long distance relationship we are so excited to finally be building a life together side by side. Thank you St. Joseph for your intercession!

  61. On the 9th day of The St. Joseph Novena I receieved a call for an
    interview and it went really well. Thank you, St. Joseph for this opportunity. God Bless!

    Mary

  62. I have been praying for a future spouse to St. Joseph for over 3 1/2 yrs. I have finally met a amazing Devout Catholic gentleman and I am moving out of state to grow in our relationship with each other and the Lord. Thankyou St. Joseph , I had prayed that he would have a lot of qualities as you do and that he definitely does he also has a very strong connection and love for you.. I am so joyous that he is came into my life he is a true blessing and although there is no marriage yet I am hopeful that in the future we will become husband and wife and be able to share our love with each other and others and be examples of what to FAITH , LOVE & HOPE is. ..

  66. I posted earlier that on the 7th day my prayer was already answered – my son dropped by for a visit. After months of “not having the time”, he has been dropping by every couple of days ever since.

    My friend who has been unemployed for over a year was offered a job on the feast of st. Joseph and he starts his full time gainful employment today.

    My other friend who has been trying multiple times to obtain a visa to be able to visit with his fiancee and was not successful each time, received the visa.

    I just feel like I have not asked for enough yet. But the best is yet to come. Praise be to Our Lord, thank you st. Joseph

  67. I’m really thankful in praying this Novena of St. Joseph and also those who are praying for everyone. I have been constantly praying and my prayer has been answered.

  72. Last year 2014, my father was very ill and I was praying the St Joseph Novena along with everyone here online. My father passed away peacefully on the Feast Day of St Joseph. This year 2015 I was praying the novena with other intentions in mind, my brother in law passed away peacfully from a stroke on this year’s feast of St Joseph. I believe they died peacefully through him who is the Patron of departing souls and a holy death. I thank and praise JESUS for His great mercy to us all and for giving us St Joseph!
