The ease with which we are able to give alms may depend largely on how much we earn. For those out of work, the challenge is greater still. Today, we pray for those in our life who may be between jobs or looking for work.
you created the human race
and you know each one of us by name.
Through Christ you have chosen us
to be your sons and daughters
and to build up your Kingdom on earth.
Give [insert name here] the work he/she seeks
so that he/she may share his/her talents with others
and know the dignity and satisfaction
that you give to us through our work.
Give him/her patience while you open doors,
and grant him/her the wisdom to see your will.
Keep our family in your care
and provide for all our needs.
Never let stress diminish our love for each other
nor the desire for material things
lessen our love for you.
With confidence and trust, loving God,
we make this prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord.
