To find job and discover mission

I recently read a book about the theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar, and it mentioned an idea that was important to his theology. That is, that each of us has a unique personal mission given them by God. Most of my life I have struggled with finding what kind of work I should go into. I know that God knows all things, including what will happen in our lives, and what we will do. I want to ask for prayers that I find the job that God wants me to have, and that I discover the personal mission He wants me to pursue. I would also like to pray for all people, that they discover the work God wants them to do and the unique personal mission God wants them to accomplish. I thank you all for prayers for this intention.
God bless you all. Amen.

I’m praying for you and for those in similar situations. May the Lord speak to you so that you know what kind of work He wants you to do. May He do the same thing with everyone else that has a situation similar to yours.

Hail Mary

Now and at the hour of death,

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


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.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


Prayer to St. Joseph for the Unemployed

O Saint Joseph, we pray to you for those who are out of work, for those who want to earn their living or support their families.

You who are the patron of workers; grant that unemployment may vanish from our ranks; that all those who are ready to work may put their strength and abilities in serving their fellowmen and earn a just salary.

You are the patron of families; do not let those who have children to support and raise lack the necessary means. Have pity on our brothers and sisters held down in unemployment and poverty because of sickness or social disorders. Help our political leaders and captains of industry find new and just solutions. May each and every one have the joy of contributing, according to his abilities, to the common prosperity by an honorable livelihood. Grant that we may all share together in the abundant goods God has given us and that we may help underprivileged countries. Amen.

Please read the following carefully, from our Catechism.
307 To human beings God even gives the power of freely sharing in his providence by entrusting them with the responsibility of “subduing” the earth and having dominion over it.168 God thus enables men to be intelligent and free causes in order to complete the work of creation, to perfect its harmony for their own good and that of their neighbors. **Though often unconscious collaborators with God’s will, they can also enter deliberately into the divine plan by their actions, their prayers and their sufferings.**169 They then fully become “God’s fellow workers” and co-workers for his kingdom.170

My highlight, I don’t believe in coincidence and I hope contemplating on this will give you some relief from anxiety over your mission being revealed.
God bless.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on @Writer_for_God and on the whole world

i did pray a decade of the divine mercy for your intention.

God, Heavenly Father, I ask that Your Will may be done. Give me what You know to be best for my soul, and for the souls of those for whom I pray.

Give us Your Holy Spirit to enlighten us, to correct us, and to guide us in the way of Your commandments and holiness, while we strive for the happiness of heaven where I hope we glorify You forever.

God, Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ crucified, Your beloved Son, I beg You to forgive all our sins, all our negligences, and all the transgressions of our past lives.

God, Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ crucified, Your Divine Son, I beg You to grant us the grace to serve You in this life according to your holy Will.
