Prayer for a new job.


#1

I'm trying to get back into teaching and two positions as a Teacher/Chaplain have opened up in Catholic High Schools near here.

I quit teaching a few years ago to have more flexible hours for my son with down syndrome. He is now far more independent and at a regular school. I can now go teaching again.

I have the background, experience interest and character to do this role well.

I've been struggling to get a contract.

Please pray for me that, if it is God's will, the Holy Spirit helps me land one of these positions.

Memorare
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 unto 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 your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Dear Saint Joseph, you were yourself once faced with the responsibility of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary. Look down with fatherly compassion upon me in my anxiety over my present inability to support my family. Please help me to find gainful employment very soon, so that this heavy burden of concern will be lifted from my heart and that I am soon able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to my care. Help us to guard against bitterness and discouragement, so that we may emerge from this trial spiritually enriched and with even greater blessings from God.

Amen.

Father Almighty, I pray for triumphguy and his intentions. Please bless him with gainful employment in the form of a teaching/chaplain position at a Catholic school nearby. I pray that he is able to get a teaching position that will give him fulfillment and a good source of income. St. Joseph, pray for him. Amen.

For some reason the memorare popped into my head as I was reading your prayer request, so I will pray it now.

Remember oh most gracious virgin Mary, that never was it said that known that anyone who fled 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 I come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despite not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us.

Blessed Mary, may you please look out for our friend and put our petitions at the feet our your dear son, our Lord Jesus.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is
