Prayer to Saint Joseph Spouse of the Virgin Mary

O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.  Please assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from thy divine Son all spiritual blessings, so that, having engaged here below thy heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving to you and to Our Heavenly Father. O Saint Joseph, I never tire of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Hold Him in my name and kiss His holy head for me; ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Virgin Mary and Patron of departing souls, pray for me. Amen.
