In times of need, everyone needs help. That is why there are particular saints in Heaven with particular ‘jobs’ to cover certain ‘needs’ on earth, patron saints for specific areas.

For example, St Anthony is the saint you call on when you have lost something, Sts Rita and Jude are the saints of the impossible, St Therese is for healing, St Christopher is called on for help in travelling and driving, St Dymphna for mental illness and anxiety and St Barbara in lighting and thunderstorms.

The list of ‘needs’ is as endless as the list of saints we pray to in them (though Jesus is always our one mediator with the Father, the saints are our older brothers and sisters in Christ who ‘know the way’).

The saints in fact, are so full of God’s love in Heaven, (as they were, heroically,  when they lived on earth) that they wish for nothing more than to help us and to share their bounty and reward with us. 

St Joseph, the loving foster father of Jesus, knows how hard it can be to live on earth (his son was persecuted and hunted down even as a baby) and to earn a living everyday.

St Joseph knows what it is to raise a family albeit that his foster son was divine, Jesus still needed somewhere to live and bread on the table.

So, because St Joseph denied nothing to the Christ child, Jesus reigning in Heaven can hardly deny St Joseph’s prayers now.

Literally thousands have had recourse to the great St Joseph in many needs and difficulties and he does seem to be the saint that covers all necessities so you are on good ground with him if you invoke his patronage over your life and family!

Saint Joseph was also fortunate enough to be married to the holiest, most virtous, not to mention the most beautiful woman that ever existed. He was privileged to have a harmonious and happy marriage and home life.

He knew the joys of a blessed marriage (though celibate as both had taken vows of celibacy before their marriage) and many single people also have recourse to St Joseph to find a suitable spouse. A mistake in this area is usually a large one.

So, here’s a ‘miracle’ prayer to cover all our needs-it will take less than 5 minutes of your life .

PS I like to say “I praise you Jesus for Saint Joseph’s ….” at each of the four meditation points…
