Here is the place for prayers concerning
work and employment issues.

Prayer to Saint Joseph, Patron of Workers
Quote: 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...
