There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain” (Isaiah 4:6). If you happen to be in need of a shelter probably due to lack of finance, you probably have had to stay at someone else’s home or take shelter under bridges or in subways hoping that you are miraculously liberated, this prayer is for you!
The intercession of Saint Joseph has been proof of God’s saving grace in people’s lives. Saint Joseph is the patron saint of our housing because he played a huge role in protecting his family (Mary and Jesus) and providing shelter for them.
You should reach out to him today through this prayer trusting that he will intercede on your behalf and in no distant time, you would be in the comfort of your own home:
“Glorious and good St. Joseph,
You experienced many tribulations in finding a home for Mary and Jesus.
Remember how much you worried about them, of your undertakings and closed doors that you encountered when you accompanied the Infant Jesus on the way to being censured and then your exile and finally the return to your country.
During times of hardship, you made sure that their material comfort always reflected your love and concern, your faithful presence and protection towards Mary and Jesus.
Watch over my actions in finding a home, that they proceed smoothly and in clarity, and especially watch over my dealings with the owners and the lease terms.
May this new home be welcoming, peaceful, have good neighbors and relations between everyone.
May all those that come to my home (our home) feel welcomed by your presence. Fill this home with the love of Jesus and Mary. Amen.”
