Prayer for New Job

This is my first post here and I am so happy I found this Forum.
My husband really needs a new joba and I was wondering if anyone knows a prayer that I can say.
Thank you


Here is a Novena to Saint Joseph (the worker), 7day. i will keep you and your family in my prayers.



Saint Joseph, I, your unworthy child, greet you. You are the faithful protector and intercessor of all who love and venerate you. You know that I have special confidence in you and that, after Jesus and Mary, I place all my hope of salvation in you, for you are specially powerful with God and will never abandon your faithful servants. Therefore I humbly invoke you and commend myself, with all who are dear to me and all that belong to me, to your intercession. I beg of you, by your love for Jesus and Mary, not to abandon me during life and to assist me at the hour of my death.

Glorious Saint Joseph, spouse of the Immaculate Virgin, obtain for me a pure, humble, charitable mind, and perfect resignation to the divine Will. Be my guide, my father, and my model through life that I may merit to die as you did in the arms of Jesus and Mary.

Loving Saint Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, I raise my heart to you to implore your powerful intercession in obtaining from the Divine Heart of Jesus all the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death, and the special grace I now implore:

(Mention your request).

Guardian of the Word Incarnate, I feel confident that your prayers in my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God. Amen.


Remember, most pure spouse of Mary, ever Virgin, my loving protector, Saint Joseph, that no one ever had recourse to your protection or asked for your aid without obtaining relief. Confiding, therefore, in your goodness, I come before you and humbly implore you. Despise not my petitions, foster-father of the Redeemer, but graciously receive them. Amen.

Oh man, you sound like me! For a whole year I prayed daily that my DH would get a new job…he needed one badly! I prayed to St. Anthony of Padua b/c I believe he’s had a hand in our whole relationship (long story for another time) so I went to him. Took a year, but he now has this spectacular job that was well worth the wait. He definitely is the miracle worker!!!

There is a St. Anthony novena…google it, you’ll find it. I think it’s on EWTN’s website as well ( Good luck and welcome to CAF!!!
