Prayer to obtain a Conversion through St. Joseph

We all have someone we know and love who has wandered somewhat from the faith. The prayer below entrusts these people to the powerful intercession of St. Joseph.

O Glorious Patriarch St. Joseph, who merited to be called ‘just’ by the Holy Spirit, I urgently recommend to you the soul of (Name) which Jesus redeemed at the price of his Most Precious Blood.

You know how deplorable is the state and how unhappy the life of those who have banished this loving Saviour from their hearts, and how greatly they are exposed to the danger of losing him eternally.

Permit not, I implore you, that this 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 this prodigal child and conduct him (her) back to the bosom of the Heavenly Father.

Abandon him (her) not, I implore you, until you open to him (her) the gates of the heavenly city, where he (she) will praise and bless you through all eternity for the happiness which he (she) will owe to your powerful intercession.
St. Joseph, loving Foster-Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ and Most Chaste Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary; pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
