This powerful prayer to Saint Joseph should be said by those in a relationship or marriage with sinful partners. It is not an easy task to change the hearts of those you love who seem to be on the wrong path. It could be a case of a partner who drinks to stupor, takes hard drugs, steals, practices corruption, adultery, fornication or any other sinful act.
They could even love and care for you truly but this is not enough because the actions of a sinner displeases God “But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God,
And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear” (Isaiah 59:2). Hence, it is your duty to ensure that he or she changes for better. It might prove futile when you try to convert them but you should never stop trying. Back up your efforts with prayers and watch your partner begin to change miraculously.
Say this prayer imploring the intercession of Saint Joseph for them:
“O glorious patriarch St. Joseph, who merited to be called “just” by the Holy Spirit, I urgently recommend to you the soul of [Name], which Jesus redeemed at the price of His Precious Blood.
Thou knowest how deplorable is the state and how unhappy the life of those who have banished this loving Savior from their hearts, and how greatly they are exposed to the danger of losing Him preserve it from the danger that threatens it; touch the heart of the prodigal child and conduct him back to the bosom of the fondest of fathers.
Abandon him not, I implore thee, till thou hast opened to him the gates of the heavenly city, where he will praise and bless thee throughout eternity for the happiness which he will owe to thy powerful intercession. Amen”.
