Please pray for my husband who is out of work for the second time in a year. A large part of this is due to his inability to deal well with difficult people (of whom he is one!). This last job loss was probably a God-send since it made him recognize how poorly he treats people and I’ve seen dramatic changes (for the better). His father is a very hostile and critical person; I believe my husband often transfers his anger for his father to others. Again, he has recognized this and is working on an ongoing forgiveness of his father and his bad behavior. I pray that my husband will find a job and that he can begin again as a kinder, more responsible person.
Father, hear our prayer for your son that he would find work swiftly and that he would, by your grace, be able to forgive his father and master his temper. Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
