Heavenly Father, we put our trust in you. We ask the intercession of St. Joseph under his title of “the worker” so that we may be open to your divine plan even in difficult and uncertain times and circumstances. We ask that, through his intercession and following his example, we may come to understand our place in your plan and exercise our responsibility for the welfare of others, especially those close to us who depend on us. We pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in these weeks before Pentecost so that your plan might be clearer to us, and that our desire to follow it would be more wholehearted.
We ask all this through Christ our risen Lord. Amen.
