In light of all the people struggling to find jobs so they can support themselves and their families, here is a prayer for employment from EWTN.com that you or someone you know might find helpful:
“God, our Father, I turn to You seeking Your divine help and guidance as I look for suitable employment.
“I need Your wisdom to guide my footsteps along the right path, and to lead me to find the proper things to say and do in this quest. I wish to use the gifts and talents You have given me, but I need the opportunity to do so with gainful employment.
“Do not abandon me, dear Father, in this search, but rather grant me this favor I seek so that I may return to You with praise and thanksgiving for Your gracious assistance.
“Grant this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.”
Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal. (Philippians 3:13-14)
Send your peace and guidance to those struggling with unemployment, Father.
