Prayer for Job Seekers
Gracious and loving God,
You know our need for meaningful work.
Send your Holy Spirit to guide those who are searching for employment.
Help them to recognize the gifts and talents you have given them.
Deepen their desire to follow your will.
Inspire them as they contact potential employers.
Give them patience as they wait for responses.
Shelter them from feelings of rejection.
Protect them from discouragement.
Give them courage to overcome fear.
Shower them with the graces they need to persevere.
Let this time of searching become an opportunity
to grow in faith, to cultivate the virtue of hope,
and to experience your healing love.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
Novena to St Cajetan, Patron of Job Seekers
