Saint Joseph   Leave a comment

Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. Oh St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers. Oh St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls–Pray for me.

This prayer was found in the fiftieth year of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In 1505 it was sent from Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle. Whoever shall read this prayer or hear it or keep it about themselves, shall never die a sudden death, or be drowned, or shall poison take effect on them; neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy, or shall be burned in any fire, or shall be overpowered in battle.

Say for nine mornings for anything you may desire. It has never been known to fail, so be sure you really want what you ask for.

Saint Joseph Feast Day: March 19

Dear Beloved God in Heaven,

Please give us a president that loves this country and everything it stands for.
Please give us a president who respects you as the one true God. Please give
us a president who will, with your help, restore this nation to its former glory, the
way you created her.

Please help us to respect what you have given to us and not take anything for
granted ever again. Please God, weaken the evil and strengthen the good, both
within and without. May our eyes be opened. In Jesus’ name, Amen

God Bless America

Friends, you are free to forward this prayer with all of your fellow Christians and urge them to read
it, then pass it on. As never before in the history of this country has this plea been so vital.

If There Be Good In Me   Leave a comment

Dear God, if there be good in me

Let all of it come out.

If I have love and sympathy

Let no one be in doubt.

If I can do some kindly act

Please give me strength to make

My effort an accomplished fact.

For someone else’s sake

Inspire me to give my best

In everything I do,

And never let my spirit rest

Until I see it through.

Whenever there are clouds of gray,

And heavy hang the years,

Help me help someone on his way,

And help me dry his tears.

Dear God, be always with me and,

If there be good in me

Let it go out to every land,

And all Humanity

Miss Me But Let Me Go   Leave a comment

When I come to the end of the road

and the sun has set for me,

I want no rites in a gloom filled room.

Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little but not too long,

and not with your head bowed low.

Remember the love that we once shared.

Miss me but let me go.

For this is the journey that we all

must take, and each must go alone.

It’s all a part of the Master’s plan,

a step on the road to home.

When you are lonely, and sick of heart,

go to the friends we know,

and bury your sorrow in doing good deeds.

Miss me, but let me go.
