Here is a prayer which I have used since I was nine years old, it has ‘never been known to fail.’ 

I personally have used this prayer whenever I had a special need or intention, often reciting it as a novena for nine days, (traditionally people do this to copy the apostles who prayed for nine days in the upper room before the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost), and I have never been let down yet!

This is the prayer;
“O 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.
O 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.
O St. Joseph, I never weary of 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 us.
