For the Marian Press title Meet Your Spiritual Father: A Brief Introduction to St. Joseph by Dr. Mark Miravalle, Hearts Afire: Parish-based Programs creator Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, composed a special nine-day preparation for entrustment to St. Joseph. Here's Day Nine:

Day Nine — St. Joseph, Who Died So Beautifully
Dear St. Joseph,

I know I am going to die. When I do, I trust that you will be there to greet me with Jesus and Mary in a special way. Will you please promise me this? I trust you. I believe that you will be there for me. For my part, I will try not to be afraid of my death, and I will live my life in preparation for it. I will maybe even look forward to it as the time when I will get to meet you face to face. Prepare me for my death, whenever it may be. If it is sudden, please make sure that my soul is prepared and please make sure I will not be lost! Dear St. Joseph, obtain this grace for me as I consecrate myself to your fatherly care. Tomorrow, I am fully yours. Probably someday after that, I will die, and I give you permission to take me home to my Father's house when that day comes.

Saint Joseph, who died so beautifully, please prepare my soul for death.

Jude Thaddeus, my patron saint - Mar 18, 2015

Dear St Joseph, I would ask that you implore His omnipotent love, mercy and compassion upon all who will be called to eternity this day -- but most especially for that one who is in most immediate need of forgiveness and mercy but has no one to pray beside him or her. May Our loving and merciful Lord take him or her at the Great Hour of Divine Mercy and bring his or her soul to Heaven. I would also implore of you, still, that you intercede for us and send us a qualified buyer with a qualified offer regarding the sale of our house. We do need to sell this house so my husband and I can move on to the next stage of our life. Please St. Joseph, please...
