Heavenly Father, giver of every opportunity,
Please help all those who are searching for employment during these very challenging times.
You gave work to mankind as a gift and a way to grow in grace and virtue.
Any diligent work offered in service to you can be a path to holiness and help build up you kingdom.
Lord, please give renewed hope to all the unemployed and sustain them in these difficult times.
By the prayers and holy example of Saint Cajetan, patron of all job seekers, encourage all
those who are looking for work to persevere and grow in deeper trust of your unfailing care for them.
Increase in them O Lord the gifts of ingenuity, courage and persistance.
Through the intercession of St Cajetan, help all the unemployed find dignified work and a secure living wage.
During this time of seeking, may they come to realise that You are all they ever really had and that You are all they ever really needed.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
