Farmer's Prayer to Saint Joseph

O glorious St. Joseph,

foster father of Jesus,

you did provide for the Holy Family.

We commit to your protection all our crops and farm 


Deign, we beseech you, to intercede in our behalf

with Almighty God, 

Who rules the seasons,

so that our fields being safe from pests and favored by 

the weather

may yield abundant crops

that will allow us to supply the wants of life.

Thus freed from earthly worries

may we after your example

apply all our thoughts to eternal life.

We beseech you

to instill a love of the land into the hearts of our youth

for their own salvation and that of Christian unity

so that we may all share hereafter

in the same blissful life you enjoy in heaven.
