Prayers for a new job, my marriage


#1

I humbly ask you for prayers that I find a new job that will make good use of my skills and provide for my family. I was informed this week that my job of 11 years with the church is being eliminated, and I will very soon be out of work. This has caused me a great deal of doubt, grief and worry. I ask that you pray that I quickly find suitable work to support my family, but that I also will KNOW that it is a job God is leading me too. This is creating great stress on my marriage, and I love my wife dearly. We have been married over 28 years, and I cannot stand to see the strain on her, the hurt in our relationship, and our marriage. Please pray for us, I really need to the prayers. I feel like such a failure and life seems rather bleak, to say the least.

Thank you.

Bruce

I feel your pain and of those in the same boat. Hang in there and tell your wife that you are doing your best to cope with this problem. Pray hard that your family may understand and accept this trial in your life. I’ll be praying for your whole family. One Joyful Mystery for your intention. God Bless and take care.

I am so sorry!!! :frowning: Rest assure, God has something special planned for you, but sometimes, in our humanness, we cannot see that. Please rely on Him, and know He will always take care of you and your family. My prayers for you to find gainful employment soon, and that you and your wife will have peace of mind while God works on things for you. (((hugs)))

Bruce, yes, I will pray thar God will take particular care of your family. You have served Him, and I pray He will look after you and your family. You are not a failure, Bruce. You are a victim of others’ greed. I’m conscious that God never willed you or anyone out of your jobs. I think of the recession as something like a war. Evil greedy men began this recession, and as in a war there are millions, literally millions of victims of the sin of these men throughout not only your country but also the world. The economic crisis begun by these men with their sin of greed has had a domino effect throughout the world, and in every country people are losing jobs and companies are closing down, including in mine.

I ask You, Lord, to find Bruce steady work to support his family. And don’t let him feel he’s a failure. It isn’t true

Lord, please help this person find employment soon. He, like so many others, is struggling in these hard economic times and is unemployed. It is so much more difficult for someone who is the “breadwinner,” Lord, to be placed in this situation, for he or she is the person who provides for so many young ones or spouses. Please, Lord, not for his sake but for that of his family, please allow him to find work soon. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, I pray. Amen.

St. Cajetan, pray for us.
