My dad needs a job

Please pray that my dad will find a job. He’s been out of work for about a year now. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless :smiley:

I will pray for his job search. My wife is looking for a job as well.

[FONT=Arial]Gracious and loving God, you know our need for meaningful work.
Send your Holy Spirit to guide those who are searching for employment.
Help them to recognize the gifts and talents you have given them.
Deepen their desire to follow your will.
Inspire them as they contact potential employers.
Give them patience as they wait for responses.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]Shelter them from feelings of rejection.
Protect them from discouragement. Give them courage to overcome fear.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]Shower on them the graces they need to persevere.
Let this time of searching become an opportunity to grow in faith,
to cultivate the virtue of hope, and to experience your healing love.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.[/FONT]

I have said a prayer for your father, these are tough times and it helps to remember what has been said starting in Mathew 10:29:

“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and not one of them shall fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not therefore: better are you than many sparrows.”

I know that jobs are in short supply Lord, but please have mercy on mawatrucki’s Dad who is surely very discouraged after a year of unemployment.
Please help him find reliable work very soon.
Thank You, Lord.

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.

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, including mawatrucki’s Dad .

and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive trhose who trespass against us
and lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil
Amen
