A Prayer of the Husband

A prayer of the husband:

Let us begin by reading this :
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
"Dear Joseph, chaste spouse of Mary and heir to the royal line of David, Patron of the Universal Church, I address you today under your title of Terror of Demons. One look from your calm gaze strikes fear into any evil with designs upon my life and my family. In order to imitate you in your protection and provision for Mary and Jesus, I ask you to adopt me, too, as you adopted Jesus. Yes, bring me under your roof and share with me your kingly confidence. See that my heart is good,despite my sins, as your heart is good. In all things,and in every thing, and in everything beyond everything, and as a man before another man, I ask for your friendship and guidance for my intention. Ask the Holy Trinity to grant my miracle, using whatever supernatural and human means are required. Make my virtue and holiness so like yours that when women see me, they see you.Let women feel you, hear you, and pray with you when they feel, hear, and pray with me. Teach me, as you taught Jesus, to learn that I must die to every impurity, every selfish desire, and every act of self-indulgence that harms the women in my life. Let me die, and let Joseph live! Let your powerful Heart of David triumph in my life as husband and father beyond my wildest dreams. Not only do I say Yes with you, I so so with the full confidence of a man who has been baptized into your holy family. Do not delay. Now is the time for action. You, Joseph, surely taught your son to pray the Our Father, so with you, I pray to the Almighty Father: THY will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Amen."

I love reading prayers like this. i don't pray on bended knees, but still reads prayers that we have used to read, when i was still in the seminary. it gives me the chance to talk to the Almighty in the most intimate ways, as a human being.

Infrat, thanks for the visit...it's always like learning new words or dialect, along the way, there are some meaningful notes that we come accross and agree. Keep on communicating to your/our creator which I am sure there is. The One who never leaves prayers and supplications unanswered.
