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)

  6. Thank you St. Joseph for helping us to sell our home.
    When I began the novena in March, our beautiful home which our family was out-maturing had been on the market for several months and finally had an offer. The offer was not great and would have made it difficult to afford something good for our next home, but we were willing to take it out of fear it was our only chance. I did not feel peaceful about it and just prayed the novena that St. Joseph would guide us to what was right for our family. During the novena, the buyers lost interest and dropped the offer. However, at 10pm on March 19th we received an email from another interested couple who offered exactly the amount that we needed to be able to move on! The reason the want it is because they can see themselves starting a family in our house. :)
    I’m happy to say that we have passed all the hurdles and are set to close in a couple of weeks!
    Now I am continuing my prayers that The Holy Family will lead us to the right new home that fulfills the needs of our family.

Please Saint Joseph help me find suitable employment with a good company or organization that will offer me a position that pays a good salary, benefits and good future so I can be happy ; so I can take care of mom and myself.

I sometimes get offered jobs that are not good enough to support myself, no long term future, temp consulting or just bad companies or organizations in general, and I see myself only taking them until I find another job – this of course is the wrong thing to do. I once took a job just because I needed a job in my field and I was badly mistreated by management so I would be forced to leave, I was soon let go from the company.

  37. Dear St. Joseph,
    I am so blessed to come upon this Novena. Please help me find a job that is fulfilling, where my talent is recognized and appreciated. One with a positive environment that will foster fair treatment, respect and a fair wage compensation.

    Please pray for those from my former employer(s) that will hurt others, by lying to protect their own jobs and those that use bullying tactics to control others. Please allow me to receive my unemployment benefits in the interim to prevent any financial hardship, while I look for employment.

    God is good and I trust he will answer my prayers.
    With all my love to God. —-O

  54. Dear St Joseph, my husband may be losing his job due to an unfortunate misunderstanding. They sent him home for the week on Tuesday and will be calling Monday to let him know if he still has a job or not. He is a good man and a hard worker and our two daughters and myself depend wholly on him. We’ve been getting hit recently and this final blow came just as we found out we were pregnant. Please pray for my husband Robert to keep his amazing job so he can continue to care for his growing family.

    This was my first Novena prayer. I want to thank you so much for inspiring me to pray. My world, my life and my family has been turned completely upside down in a bitter divorce. I have learned the true meaning in “the power of prayer.” I have also become acutely aware of God, Jesus and the Saint’s presence in my life through small miracles and acts of encouragement. It is truly incredible and Devine. Everyday I feel I’m stepping closer to my vindication and reuniting with my family.

  57. Dear St Joseph, I humbly pray that you intercede for me that I may get a good marriage partner. I desperately need someone good to spend my life and future with and also get a better job, a job that will help me grow professionally. Thanks

He didn’t have a stroke this morning, as first feared, but he had some kind of brain episode. He is not talking. He must be so scared. The hospital is releasing him to home for hospice care. He may have a few days or a few weeks. Nothing is certain. He has fought a long a courageous battle. We thank you for everything”.

  66. Thank you St. Joseph for answering my prayers concerning the estrangement from my two sons! My youngest son called me tonight, told me he loved me, and let me talk with my grandchildren on face time. I pleaded for your will in my life and didn’t expect this.

  69. We prayed this novena to sell two houses (so we could buy a larger one to accommodate my father with us after my mother died). The day it ended, we gave up and took both houses off the market. That same afternoon, we received an offer on one house and another followed. We now have two signed contracts. Thanks be to God and St Joseph!

  70. Dear St. Joseph,
    I ask that you please intercede for me so that I may find employment as soon as possible. My son and I are currently homeless due to my having lost my job in June, 2014, and having lost my unemployment benefits in December, 2014. Financially, it got so bad for us that we left my home state to stay with my sister in FL so that we could have a roof over our heads. Now, she will be moving to a smaller place, so I will have to find a way to get back home and that requires for me to have a job. God bless her and her husband for giving us shelter.

    I miss my family, friends and just plain “living” a normal life. I feel like a caged bird because I don’t like it here in FL, yet I have no money go anywhere or do anything — not even buy food, at times. I found a part-time job here in FL that does not even make ends meet. I have applied to scores of full-time jobs, to no avail. Sometimes I want to give up entirely, but my son and my faith in God is what keeps me going.

    Dear St. Joseph, I hope you will hear my prayers as I have just finished applying for a federal government job back home that will give consideration to the first 100 applicants. I pray that you can help me be one of the first five to have applied as the job was posted only hours ago and closes on 4/1/15. I ask that you please hear my prayers and bless me with this job (along with God our Father, Jesus his Son and the Holy Spirit). Amen

  71. Thanks to you my St.Joseph for an answered prayer.
    This is just a living proof that God hears and answers all our prayers no matter who you are and what you have done in the past.
    I started my novena to St. Joseph March 7,2015 and prayed for 9 consecutive days. Prayed for him to touch the heart of my son’s father and help decide to get us a decent house for we really and badly needed it. My son and I ( I’m a single parent) were trying to look for a house since Dec of 2014, but there is always a problem, either the price or the house itself. Until I felt so helpless and desperate because my sister and her husband forced us to immediately vacate the property or they will lock us up. Right after the 9 day novena, on the 10th day (March17,2015) we had a scheduled tripping to check this house we saw. March 25, 2015 we talked to the owner and paid for the downpayment and we can immediately move in anytime we want. To God be the glory God is really good and I can’t thank him enough for this blessing that St. Joseph gave me and my son..thank you….I promise myself that I will patronize and pray to St. Joseph until the day I die.
    ST. JOSEPH PRAY FOR US

  72. I have a lot of faith in this novena. Last December I prayed for a job and financial help to St Joseph.
    Within two weeks I was offered a much better job and two months later I got refunded the money I lost to a travel agent without insurance. There was no hope I would get this money after I exhausted all avenues.
    Thank you Thank you, St Joseph for your help.
    Please continue to hear my prayers.
    In the name of the Father The Son And The Holy Spirit. Amen

  73. Dear St. Joseph,

    Please pray for my fiancé to get this amazing job back home. We are currently living away from home and it is a great job opportunity for him to be satisfied for the rest of his life. We are thankful for everything that we have now but would really love to be closer to family and have this great opportunity for this job.

    Thank you so much!

  74. Dear St. Joseph
    I lost my job last summer and have not been able to find full time employment. My husband has an illness that will eventually force him into retirement. Please pray for us that I can find a job and keep it to prepare ourselves and keep us financially prepared for what is to come in our lives. I fear we wont be able to survive.

    We have both struggled so hard in our lives and I am just asking that we can keep moving forward even with all the road blocks that have been thrown at us.
    Amen

  75. Dearest St. Joseph

    Please help to support my son Peter in his work. He has not made any sales and may loose his job. He has found a home, with the help of St. Antony, but needs to keep his job in order the house sale will go through. He has waited patiently to ask Katy to marry him, 3 years, and they would make a wonderfull home together to raise children.

    Just like you , my husband Timothy and myself are adopted parents. We too adopted my son as a baby. We feel very fortunate to have such a good and loving son, but he has been so stressed for so long. Please help him to have respite.

    Your devoted servant, Frances

  76. Dear St Jospeph please intercede for me to find the work I need as I’m selling my home after losingy job and was fired unfairly so it’s not easy with a reference. Help me to find a new home locally with a garden for the cat and good health as I get breathless and for my feelings for G, and as I woujd love to hear from him and for us to be married. I also ask for prayers for my family’s health prosperity and love. Thank you and God bless everyone on this page may your prayers be answered.

  77. St Joseph I pray for employment right now as I am unemployed. I have applied to so many organizations but have not received any responses. I pray for employment at this time because I am financially broke and need to support my family.

  78. I am a divorced mother with 2 daughters. I am sad that my children have no full time father in their lives and I pray that St Joseph will be their guide; and that the baby Jesus asleep in his arms will always keep them safe.
    I pray to have all my home issues sorted out and fixed so my children will be happy to be at home in a safe environment
    That the person who is stalking me will stop.
    I am having some problems at work and I pray the novena for St Joseph to intercede so that all problems will be fixed and all fears gone. Amen

  79. I am new here, and I am glad that I came across this site. I am asking St. Joseph to intercede for my fiance. We are to get married on the 15th of august 2015. I pray that he finds a job by this week because he hasn’t been working and we need to carry on with our wedding plans. Everything is there but what is short is money to pay. Through the grace of God I only got a job last week but my salary alone can not carry the expenses. There are people that have promised him money but they are quiet. I pray that they come through. I also pray for guidance at my new job and for health and prosperity for my family.

  80. Pray for me so that i will stop drinking,cheating on my wife and against the spirit of masturbation and also financial dryness
