Lord please have pity on the desperation that so many unemployed persons experience, as so many people are losing their jobs…and their businesses…and their homes. Lord please help families and individuals to survive economically and emotionally during their times of unemployment. Please help the unemployed to find work.

Jesus please encourage an improvement in the economy so that unemployment issues and financial difficulties ease.

Our Mother, St. Michael the Archangel, their guardian angels and patron saints, please pray for them to find work, stability, and satisfaction in their work.

St Joseph, you had work when you married Mary, but the relocation to Bethlehem left you without employment, as again, did the flight to Egypt to escape murder by King Herod of the divine Child after Jesus was born. When you moved to Nazareth with the family, you again had to build up a business to support your wife and please pray that unemployed men and women will find suitable and reliable work soon.

Lord, please help the unemployed to find good stable work and may other good souls assist them in true Christian charity when they lack the daily necessities of living. Keep the unemployed filled with hope and trust in you, and keep them from falling into despair and homelessness. Protect them from from low self-esteem and from losing their prayer life and sacramental life. May unemployment only deepen their dependency on you (and their need for you) and give others the opportunity to grow in charity. May family help family and friends help friends and may all men grow closer through these trials, not estranged or alienated from one another. May we all grow in generosity in these times of trial and not in selfishness, and may we always be merciful and supportive toward the unemployed people in our lives. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.

[FONT=Arial]It is such a difficult time, with so many out of work and looking for jobs, and limited opportunities available. God forgive those who by their mismanagement and greed caused the economic difficulties that much of the world is now enduring, with the great anxiety and suffering it causes so many individuals and families.[/FONT]

Jesus please have mercy on these who are struggling with the most basic necessities of shelter, food, health care, education, and bills, including the ill, aged, the unemployed, the homeless, and refugees. They are so numerous Jesus, yet please help each one to find new hope and new futures.

Jesus, born in poverty, far from home, with Joseph having to find work in a foreign land with a foreign language in order to save Your infant life from murder by the Jewish king.
And then when the family returned to settle in Nazareth where once again he needed to find work in a new pace, Your family again experienced poverty. In your final years You lived on the charitable donations of others.

You knew poverty Jesus. Please have mercy on all who struggle in jobless and impoverished situations.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help
or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
We fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins my Mother;
to thee do we come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not our petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer them. Amen.
