For suitable work


#1

…so that with a job offer, combined with my financial aid package (loans), I can have some proof of income to submit to the apartment manager so that I can have a permanent address (I have been living in hotels the past two weeks, and the past two days in the university library’s 24 hour lounge as I am out of money - technically sleeping is not allowed there, but the security guards turn the other way). And I also need the income in order to pay the rent (I really do not want to involve my parents in this, since they were opposed to me moving here in the first place). And I need a permanent address so that I can renew my driver’s license, which expires in a few weeks. I also have a storage facility back in my old city whose rent I need to pay off in a few days.

Can you send speedily some prayers? Even just one Hail Mary (full prayer, not the Fatima children’s purported shorthand)? I have not had a proper meal since breakfast of Monday - strictly water yesterday.

I have set up an online campaign for donations (not going to post it here as this is not the place and some of you might know me in person, though you can PM me - I am not going to spam you). I don’t want to say that this is urgent, but in a way it really is.

EDIT: I have just applied for two positions as an optometric assistant. Can you pray that I get one of them? Also, for a few relevant things, including for sufficient money for a hotel or inn in town so that I can have time to freshen up, and a quick and smooth transition to my new apartment?

Prayer for Employment

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.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Prayer to St. Joseph for the Unemployed

O Saint Joseph, we pray to you for those who are out of work, for those who want to earn their living or support their families.

You who are the patron of workers; grant that unemployment may vanish from our ranks; that all those who are ready to work may put their strength and abilities in serving their fellowmen and earn a just salary.

You are the patron of families; do not let those who have children to support and raise lack the necessary means. Have pity on our brothers and sisters held down in unemployment and poverty because of sickness or social disorders. Help our political leaders and captains of industry find new and just solutions. May each and every one have the joy of contributing, according to his abilities, to the common prosperity by an honorable livelihood. Grant that we may all share together in the abundant goods God has given us and that we may help underprivileged countries. Amen.

Thank you.

Right now I am too angry to pray. I have been on this campus three days straight because I can’t afford an inn to live in for the time being. Add to this that nobody has called me back for a job offer.

Really am not happy.

Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.

To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy hear and answer me, Amen
