St. Joseph, our patron and guide,
you worked as a carpenter which called for creativity, resourcefulness, steadfastness and strength.
Our work demands the same virtues. So we ask for
the creativity to see beyond our present reality,
the resourcefulness to use the many gifts God provides,
the steadfastness to stay with the tasks set before us and
the strength to meet the challenges that come along the way.
And may we ask for one more gift that you experienced – to be delighted by the presence of Jesus in the midst of our busy days.
We ask this in Jesus name.
– That All May Be One
