Prayer's For Employment


There are many people who either are, or will be, facing some tough financial challenges. There have been stories on the news of people who are so overcome with fear, doubt, and helplessness, that they have taken their own lives.

The most recent story was tonight. A woman who couldn't pay her rent after losing a job, and was evicted after 6months of trying to make mini-payments, she was found inside the property this afternoon. She had lost all hope.

I was told this while listen to a loved one talk about her day at work.

Please keep all of those who have suffered because of the economic situation the world is in today in your prayers and in your hearts.

Prayer to Saint Joseph

Dear Saint Joseph, you were yourself once faced with the responsibility of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary. Look down with fatherly compassion upon me in my anxiety over my present inability to support my family. Please help me to find gainful employment very soon, so that this heavy burden of concern will be lifted from my heart and that I am soon able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to my care.
Help us to guard against bitterness and discouragement, so that we may emerge from this trial spiritually enriched and with even greater blessings from God.

Amen

What a perfect post. I have so many friends that are struggling to find jobs. I hate seeing them so frustrating and losing hope. Prayer is the best medicine.

As you can well imagine, I am having a difficult time over what was discovered Tuesday. Your prayer could remind someone not to give up, and to hold on to their faith in God to carry them through what seems a 'desparate' time. My heart is heavy with the loss of this woman whom I didn't even know. Let us all pray for her soul.
