Prayer to St. Joseph for conversion

Next Prayer

Oh glorious patriarch St. Joseph, who merited to be called “just” by the Holy Spirit, I urgently recommend to 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 eternally. Permit not, I beseech thee, that a soul so dear to me should continue any longer in its evil ways; 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.
