Lost Job due to sleep issues

Our son who had a opportunity to work for a state agency in the Midwest lost his job due to attendance issues from his sleep issue.

We are asking for prayer that he may find an answer to the sleep issue and that he also finds employment that he likes and is a livable wage position.

We know that God works in mysterious ways, that when one door closes another one opens up. We are praying that he is going to be sustained in the time it takes for the next door to open.

Having a difficult time with this, as a parent one feels at a loss as how to help, don’t know where to turn so we are turning towards our Father for help, strength and guidance.

Thanks to all in advance,

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.

I shall Pray for your son. May he overcome these sleep issues and find suitable employment.

Praying for your son.

Prayer to St. Anthony of Padua for Employment

Blessed St. Anthony, in life you were ever mindful
of the needs of the afflicted, consuming yourself in
the service of God and for the good of souls. You
were the enemy of idleness and a tireless worker in
the vineyard of the Lord.

Beseech God to grant @My3sons1 a suitable job,
which may procure for him and loved ones a decent
livelihood, and be at the same time a means of personal
sanctification and of real service to others. Pray also
for the relief of his sleep issues. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
