Lenten Prayer Buddy

I've found that the blog world, particularly those based around IF and our faith, has allowed me to "meet" other women who truly want to live God's vocation that He has planned for them.  Prior to this Lent I hadn't had the opportunity to "meet" my prayer buddy.  She is a lovely young woman living out her vocation as wife and mother.   I had the honor and privilege of praying for Ashley and her family from Seeking Steward.

Because of her her intentions, and my love of St. Joseph, I chose the prayer below to say for Ashley and her family every day.  It didn't hurt, either, that the invocation at the end mentions the Sacred Heart.  That is the name of the parish to which DH and I belong and where I find great spiritual nourishment and peace.  I do the decorating there and often lit candles by St. Joseph for Ashley and her family.
Have a blessed and holy Easter season Ashely!

O Glorious St. Joseph, thou who hast power to render possible even things which are considered impossible, come to our aid in our present trouble and distress. Take this important and difficult affair under thy particular protection, that it may end happily.
O dear St. Joseph, all our confidence is in thee. Let it not be said that we would invoke thee in vain; and since thou art so powerful with Jesus and Mary, show that thy goodness equals thy power. Amen.
St. Joseph, friend of the Sacred Heart, pray for us.
