Nothing beats the "St. Anne, bring me a man" novena.
I love this.
I think the whole poem goes like this:
"Anne, Anne, send me a man.
If he's not true, send me two."
My son recently married. His bride says she prayed to St. Joseph to help her find a suitable husband. She's very religious, and says she prayed to him a lot. On a whim, she decided to attend a St. Patrick's Day party several states away, because a school friend invited her. Because that party was being put on by some of my son's school friends, he went (he also lived several states away...in the opposite direction) My son and the young lady hit it off immediately. She learned somewhat later that his middle name is "Joseph". Now, that might seem only coincidental, but you'll never convince her that it was only coincidence.
So, St Joseph or St. Patrick? I'm a little unsure, but she believes St. Joseph.
