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 on them 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 Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
