Prayer to Saint Joseph, Patron of Workers

 
 Glorious Saint Joseph, you are the pattern of all who work. Obtain for  me, please, the grace to work conscientiously and to put devotion to  duty before my selfish inclinations. Help me to labor in thankfulness  and joy, for it is an honor to employ and to develop by my labor the  gifts I have received from almighty God. Grant that I may work in  orderliness, peace, moderation and patience without shrinking from  weariness and difficulties. I offer my fatigue and perplexities as  reparation for sin. I shall work, above all, with a pure intention and  with detachment from self, having always before my eyes the hour of  death and the accounting which I must then render of time ill-spent, of  talents unemployed, of good undone, and of empty pride in success,  which is so fatal to the work of God. For Jesus through Mary, all in  imitation of you, good Saint Joseph. This shall be my motto in life and  in death. Amen.

Ok, I have a job interview tomorrow, and it's going to be pretty  intensive.  Please pray to St. Joseph and St. Cajetan for  me.  I'm going to need them to pull through for me.

I have hesitated to post here, being reluctant to ask for things that could be construed as material gain.  However my current situation, due to unemployment, has become such that the health and well-being of my family are now in danger.

I ask that you pray for my finding a job.

Thank you.

I am praying for you, Loyola. I pray that you find work --- not just any ole work, but work that you enjoy, that pays you well, that is solid and steady and allows you to provide for your family without constant worry. And I pray this happens for you soon. His Will be done!

Good, good! Praise God! I imagine not having employment is about the worst temporal thing for most men emotionally. It's just got to be rough...
