Write your prayer request out each evening and place under the Sleeping St. Joseph figure. While you sleep, St. Joseph will intercede for you to our Heavenly Father for your needs.
Pope Francis said of St. Joseph and his rest that “I have a great love for Saint Joseph because he is a man of silence and strength. On my table, I have an image of Saint Joseph sleeping. Even when he is asleep, he is taking care of the Church!”…- Pope Francis
Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interest and desires. Oh St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ Our Lord, so that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
Oh, St Joseph, I never wear contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His Fine head for me and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St Joseph, Patron of departing souls – Pray for me.
