314. Let’s pray with s. Joseph

Joseph, with Jesus and Mary, you knew hunger, uncertainty, and illness.
You turned your heart to God to lift up your needs and those of your family.
In faith you accepted the Father’s response as events unfolded.
Be with me today as I offer my requests to the Father.

Joseph, help me recognize God’s will as I open my hands to accept what God bestows in loving kindness. With tenderness, God fills creation with life and love. Open my eyes to the wonders that God works without ceasing.

Help me learn the true intention behind my request so that I may discover
within myself the lowly one that God commends. Amen.
