What great trust and confidence God placed in you, St. Joseph, byentrusting his only Son into your fatherly care. This inspires me to entrust the spiritual care and protection of my newborn child into your competent and loving hands. Teach, guide, and support me to fulfill well my awesome vocation to be a worthy parent to this child. Amen.

O Saint Joseph, you witnessed the miracle of birth, seeing the infant Jesus born of your most holy spouse, the Virgin Mary. With wonder and awe, you took into your arms the Savior. With gratitude that only a parent can know, you glorified God for the birth of his Son, entrusted to your fatherly care.

God of Unfailing Love, thank You for blessing me with my newborn baby. I do not take my child's life for granted, so I pray that my child cultivates a heart for You. I pray that my child will not be selfish, nor will my baby try to impress others, despite the pressures of society. I pray that my baby will be humble, thinking of others as better than himself/herself, not looking out for his/her own interests, but the interests of others. Amen.

Prince of Peace, I glorify Your name because You have not given my new baby a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Despite what my baby sees around him/her, I pray that he/she will know that Your kingdom is within him/her, not around him/her. Your power operates within him/her. Indwell the Holy Spirit in him/her. Make him/her know that greater is He who is in them than he who is in the world. Amen.

God, please give my baby all that is required for a good way of life and for a good way of living. Please let this child bring joy and pride to me and my family. I will give all that is needed to this child. And help me to do my best to guard and protect my baby for his/her lifetime.

God, I want to believe that you're with me and that I am known and loved by you but some days, it's hard. Help me to speak the truth from your Word back to myself. Take it from my head to my heart. Give me peace and wisdom courage to live like a conquerorbecause you've already given me victory over every challenge and obstacle. Amen.
