I have a list to thank Saint Joseph and Jesus for:

1. Thank you Saint Joseph for interceding to Jesus and letting the relationships i share with each of my three friends improve tremendously. Thank You Jesus for hearing St. Joseph's intercessions for me.

2. Thank you Saint Joseph for interceding to Jesus for giving me self confidence when i present in front of the class, and for not letting me blank out again. Thank You Jesus for hearing St. Joseph's intercession for me.

3. Thank you Saint Joseph for interceding to Jesus for giving me self confidence also when i'm out in public, and also for the times when i waited and boarded my bus to and from school where i tend to feel self concious, especially around teenagers my age. Thank You Jesus for hearing St. Joseph's intercession for me.

4. Thank you St. Joseph for interceding to Jesus in letting the payment i made overseas go smoothly, safely and quickly, without any unfortunate event happening such as fraud especially, or it getting lost in the mail. Also, thank you for the smooth, quick and safe arrival of my package as well. Thank You Jesus for hearing St. Joseph's intercession for me once more!

5. Thank you Saint Joseph for interceding to Jesus in letting me get an A grade for certain tests and also for letting me find what i had been looking for all the while. Thank You Jesus for hearing again St. Josephs intercession for me!!

All in all, thank You Jesus for answering my petitions through the intercession of St. Joseph.

Unfailing Novena to Saint Joseph:

Oh, 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. Oh, 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. Oh, St Joseph, I never weary 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 me. Amen.

Say this novena for 9 days. It's a very powerful prayer. God bless!!

Hello, i'm back again! I want to thank Saint Joseph for hearing my petitions and bringing them forth to Lord Jesus Christ in giving me self confidence during my class and letting me be finally able to come out of my shell and interact with my new friends/classmates and to have the confidence to voice out any ideas during our group discussion. Thank you so much for helping me! Also, i want to thank Jesus for hearing this very intercession. Thank You so much Jesus! Without You, nothing would have happened.

Thank you Saint Joseph for interceding to God and Jesus to let her stop acting distant to me and that if anything was causing her to act this way, to let her drop it and want to be friends with me again. I do not know what has caused her to act in such a way, i could have been sensitive again or i could have not been, but i want to thank God and Jesus for hearing my petitions through St Joseph too.

Thank you Saint Joseph for hearing my petitions and interceding for me to God and to Jesus to bring my family members closer to God. Just yesterday, my father asked my mother to buy him a Rosary as he wants to pray it. This is something which i don't think he has ever done before. Then my brother and i have also been going to church more frequently than ever on Sundays while my mother has gone to Novena session yesterday too- which is something she has not done in a long long while. Thank you Saint Joseph! Mostly, thank You Lord, thank You Jesus for hearing and answering my petitions through the intercessions of St Joseph.

Dear St Joseph, thank you for your grace to intercede for me to let my family gathering (which only happens once a year usually) be a quite a good one this year. Not only did i manage to have a hearty chat with one of my cousins, i also managed to be confident and just be myself. Previously, i always felt really awkward around my cousins and relatives, partly due to us not being very familiar or close to each other. However, this year is different. Thank You very much God and Lord Jesus for Your grace and approval for Saint Joseph's intercession for me.
