From today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Short Responsory

I will call upon the Lord, the Most High, because of his kindness to me.
– I will call upon the Lord, the Most High, because of his kindness to me.
He will send help from heaven and set me free.
– I will call upon the Lord, the Most High, because of his kindness to me.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Prayers and Intercessions

God takes care of all whom he has created and redeemed through his Son. We put our trust in him and renew our prayer:
– Lord, you have worked wonders among us.

Lord of compassion, make our hearts pure and guide our steps,
so that we remember what is true, and just, and worthy of love.
– Lord, you have worked wonders among us.

For your name’s sake, O God, do not abandon us for ever:
do not let your covenant fade away.
– Lord, you have worked wonders among us.

Receive our contrite and humble hearts:
for those who put their trust in you will never be disappointed.
– Lord, you have worked wonders among us.

You called us to be prophets in Christ:
may we always proclaim your power.
– Lord, you have worked wonders among us.


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.


Lord, be generous with your grace to those who pray to you:
by your power, may they follow your commandments closely,
receive consolation in this present life,
and embrace the joys that are to come.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.
Amen.


May the Lord bless us and keep us from all harm; and may he lead us to eternal life.

[FONT=Bookman Old Style][size=3]Jesus who lived amongst us as human person with human needs, please have mercy on those who have lost jobs, and incomes, especialy now this person.
Jesus, in Your early life you needed Joseph to find work in order to support You and Your Mother. He had to leave the work he supported Mary with during her pregnancy, to then find work in a foreign country where he didn’t even know the language; and then again when he took Your family to Nazareth. Later, others supported You by their charity, during Your public mission.
In Your understanding of human needs, please grant our prayers for reliable work for LittleBits

Lord, please let LittleBits know that Mary and the saints are all hearing his/her daily prayers to them, but that it is your will right now that LittleBits remain unemployed for a while longer, probably so LittleBits can grow completely - and I mean completely - dependant on you for everything totally surrendered to your merciful love. May LittleBits receive you daily in the Eucahrist for strength and receive all the graces he/she needs to get through this trying period of unemployment. You will only what is best for LittleBits. Help LittleBits know that you have a plan for all of us and you have a perfect plan for the life of LittleBits. May LittleBits remain strong, patient and confident in your merciful love, surrendered perfectly to your merciful love. May LittleBits persevere in prayer with the Sacraments to help sustain him/her in perfect faith, hope and love. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.

[LEFT]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.

In empathy, remembering your own practical difficulties, please pray that this person will obtain work soon.[/LEFT]

If you don't mind me asking, what line of work do you do?


#15

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.

May God bless you and help you to stay positive and hopeful, and to find purpose as you look for work
I ask the Lord to help you in any way possible through this painful time. and if possible, to help you find a job soon.


#16

Praying hard for you to find the job of your dreams.

God hears and answers all of our prayers. The answer you receive, may not be the answer you want. However, you must always remember that God loves you with all of his heart. You are his child, his beloved and his decision to grant or not to grant your wish simply comes out of his love for you.

You may not understand why your prayer seems to have gone unanswered, you may not understand why the painful cross or burden you are carrying was not lifted off your shoulder. You may not understand why such a precious wife, husband, child or friend is suffering... or has been taken from you...

But someday you will....
I will continue to pray for your prayers to be answered for a job.God bless
