Prayer Request: for those seeking jobs


St. Joseph at Work by Georges de la Tour


I hope our dear sister Edith, won't mind that we're posting this: Edith needs a job. And she's just applied for a really wonderful opportunity, that perfectly suits her abilities and wishes for the future. So, as she is leading us through this amazing Edith Stein novena (we're only on day three so you have time to catch up!), I ask that you keep her intentions in your prayers, as well.

In a similar vein, I came across this remarkable Rosary Meditation for those seeking jobs. The Anchoress' thoughtful meditation on the Sorrowful Mysteries remind us of both the agony and the peace of seeking God's will, and finally, accepting it. As she says:
"Prayer has power. When everything is falling apart, prayer holds. Any one of us can suddenly find ourselves out of work, and looking at the job opportunities with failing hope and a growing sense of powerlessness that can truly affect both ego and spirit. Once again, we find that the Mysteries of the Rosary help us to identify with Christ, and join our sufferings to His, that all may be One."
I hope they will be helpful to all of you as you are searching for God's will in your life, and especially in your work. Rest assured of our prayers for you--and please keep this special intention in your hearts as well!

St. Theresa Benedicta of the Cross, pray for us!
St. Joseph, patron of workers, pray for us!

Please pray for me, to get out of my financial problem.
I needed God's miraculous help for my desperate and seemingly impossible cases.
Thank you so very much.
