FIVE DAYS OF PRAYERS TO SAINT JOSEPH FOR WORKERS & THE UNEMPLOYED, AND PRAYER TO SAINT CHRISTOPHER FOR SAFE TRAVELS – DAY 1

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

ACT OF CONTRITION

Oh my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you. I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell, but most of all, because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.

FOR WORKERS

Oh St. Joseph, by the work of your hands and the sweat of your brow, you supported Jesus and Mary, and had the Son of God as your fellow worker.

Teach me to work as you did, with patience and perseverance, for God and for those whom God has given me to support. Teach me to see in my fellow workers the Christ who desires to be in them, that I may always be charitable and forbearing towards all. 

Grant me to look upon work with the eyes of faith, so that I shall recognize in it my share in God’s own creative activity and in Christ’s work of our redemption, and so take pride in it. 

When it is pleasant and productive, remind me to give thanks to God for it. And when it is burdensome, teach me to offer it to God, in reparation for my sins and the sins of the world.

MEDITATION: DAY 1

Colossians 3:23-24

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord, and not for yourselves. Remember that the Lord will reward you; you will receive what he has kept for his people. For Christ is the real master you serve.

The word of the Lord…

(Silent Reflection & Personal Prayer)

 
 
FOR THE UNEMPLOYED
Dear Saint Joseph, you were yourself once faced with the responsibility of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary. Look down with fatherly compassion upon me in my anxiety over my present inability to support my family. Please help me to find gainful employment very soon, so that this heavy burden of concern will be lifted from my heart and that I am soon able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to my care. Help us to guard against bitterness and discouragement, so that we may emerge from this trial spiritually enriched and with even greater blessings from God. Amen.
 
OUR FATHER… HAILY MARY….X3 GLORY BE….

As you embark on a family vacation or other travels, invoke the powerful intercession of St. Christopher, patron of travelers.

Stickers St. Christopher - 10 cmSt. Christopher is well known as the patron saint of travelers. This is due in large part to a medieval legend in which the saint carries the Christ Child over a river. If he was given the care of the baby Jesus during his travels, wouldn’t he be a perfect patron for our own adventures?

Here is a popular prayer to St. Christopher that invokes his intercession during our travels. Whether you are traveling on your own or with your family, pray to God through the intercession of St. Christopher. Many have attributed their safety to this fascinating saint and are at peace when they know he is with them.

POWERFUL PRAYER TO SAINT CHRISTOPHER FOR SAFE TRAVELS

St Christopher Patron of Travelers Wallet Prayer Card - The ACTS Mission Store

Dear Saint Christopher, you have inherited a beautiful name, Christ-bearer, as a result of the wonderful legend

that while carrying people across a raging stream you also carried the Child Jesus.

Teach us to be true Christ-bearers to those who do not know Him.

Protect all of us that travel both near and far and petition Jesus to be with us always.

Give your warning sign if danger is near so that I may stop while the path is clear.

Be at my window and direct me through when the vision blurs from out of the blue.

Carry me safely to my destined place, like you carried Christ in your close embrace. Amen

St. Christopher, pray for us, and all those who invoke thy aid!

CONCLUDING PRAYER
To you, O Blessed Joseph, we come in our trials, and having asked the help of your most holy Spouse, we confidently ask your patronage also. Through that sacred bond of charity which united you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the fatherly love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you to look graciously upon the beloved inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by his blood, and to aid us in our necessities with your power and strength.

O most provident guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ. Most beloved father, dispel the evil of falsehood and sin. Our most mighty protector, graciously assist us from heaven in our struggle with the powers of darkness. And just as you once saved the Child Jesus from mortal danger, so now defend God’s Holy Church from the snares of her enemies and from all adversity. Shield each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your help, we may be able to live a virtuous life, to die a holy death, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven. Amen.

If Saint Joseph does not grant graces, he would not be Saint Joseph!!
