Employment Prayer

I lost my job on January 8, 2013. I have been networking and contacting potential employers, posted my resume on Indeed and Monster, AND applied for 16 jobs.  I have had a few very encouraging contacts and hope to firm up some consulting work in the very near future. 

With the time on my hands I have been participating in the 9:00 communion service at our church most days.  I discovered a wonderful prayer today. 
Employment Prayer
Mary, our Lady of the Miraculous Medal,
you once experienced 
hardships and difficulties.
Look kindly on me now
as I face the same difficulties.
Help me to find suitable employment.
Through my work,
I want to meet my physical needs,
and grow spiritually.
Help me to find a job
that lets me provide for myself
and for those who depend on me.
I trust you, Immaculate Mother, 
to hear my prayers and intercede for me.
I will share you goodness with others 
that they may know your power with God
and give Him honor and glory.
Amen.

    1. Pam…just getting back to this. Focus has been a life long struggle so I find my self going from this to that and not finishing much of what I start. Pitman High friends have been a constant for me and your writing discipline an inspiration. My website at http://www.geocities.ws/scrate started me on this journey and I remain hopeful of completing a book in the near future.
