These prayers are new to me.  Hopefully they will be to you, too.  I found them in the book A Manual of Practical Devotion to St. Joseph by Fr. Patrignani, SJ.  The book is a veritable bible of means of practicing devotion to St. Joseph.  I have found it edifying to read, as someone who trusts immensely in the intercession and spiritual guidance of St. Joseph.

A Prayer for Purity

O holy St. Joseph, father and guardian of virgins, to whose fidelity was confided Jesus, innocence itself, and Mary, the Virgin of virgins; I supplicate myself and conjure you, through Jesus and Mary, this sacred deposit which is so dear to your heart, to grant that, preserved from all sin, and perfectly pure in mind, heart, and body, I may have the happiness of always serving Jesus and Mary very faithfully.  Amen.

Ejaculatory Prayer

Jesus, Joseph, and Mary, I give you my heart and my life.  Jesus, Joseph and Mary, assist me in my last agony.  Jesus, Joseph, and Mary, grant that I may die in your holy company. (three hundred day’s indulgence, applicable to the souls in Purgatory)

Prayer for a person with a laborious occupation:

Blessed Joseph, who have passed your life in the painful labors of a humble profession, I take you as my model and my protector.  Obtain for me that I may bear patiently the pains and fatigues of my state, that, like you, sanctifying my labors, I may merit a crown in Heaven. Amen.

Prayer to Implore the Protection of St. Joseph

What consolation do I feel, O my admirable and powerful protector, in hearing your servant, St. Teresa, assure us that no one ever invoked you in vain, and that all those who have a true devotion to you, and who seek your help with confidence, are always heard!  Animated with a like confidence, I have recourse to you, O worthy spouse of the Virgin of virgins; I take refuge at your feet; and a sinner though I am, I dare to present myself tremblingly to you.  Do not reject my humble prayers, O you that have borne the glorious name of Father of Jesus, listen favorably to them, and deign to intercede with Him who has been wiling to be called your Son, and Who has always honored you as His father. Amen.

Act of Consecration to St. Joseph

O blessed St. Joseph, I consecrate myself to your honor, and give myself entirely to you.  Be always my father, my protector, and my guide, in the way of salvation.  Obtain for me a great purity of heart, and a practical love of the interior life.  After your example, may I do all my actions for the greater glory of God, in union with the divine hearts of Jesus and Mary.  And, in fine, deign, blessed Joseph, to make me participate in the delights of your holy death. Amen.

These are beautiful!
I have been in search of a traditional prayer for a child’s future spouse. Would anyone here know of one?

Beautiful, thank you. I’m praying for your health and for your family!

BTW in the consecration prayer, it must actually read, “the Divine Heart of Jesus and the IMMACULATE Heart of Mary,” right? Wouldn’t want to imply that Mary is divine, and I’m sure that’s not what was meant.

THIS is my favorite novena to St. Joseph (who rocks by the way!):

Thank you for mentioning your relationship with this holy and wonderful saint and how he has blessed you. He has utterly blessed me too and this booklet really helped me flesh him out more…helping me to know him better and thus love him better too:+)

It’s so good that I ordered 10 and have given over half away already. They are a hit with my family:+) God bless~
