St. Joseph Prayer to Get a Job
Saint Joseph of Nazareth,
You who ostentate in life,
A job that allowed you to support your family,
You who worked late only with the conviction
Of bringing bread to the table of those you loved from the heart.
I, faithful servant of your actions, come today,
To implore you to help me get a decent job.
That will allow me to protect mine as you did in life.
Please listen to my prayers as I am at this moment,
Homeless without a job to do.
St. Joseph’s Prayer for Urgent Employment
Oh, dear San Jose Obrero,
Who in life did the will of God through work,
Holding with honest bread the mouth of your son Jesus,
Opens the doors of commerce, industries
So that I can get a job.
Give me strength and courage
Not to give up on the first “no,”
And let every “no” I hear feed my faith to seek a “yes.”
May I have the disposition of Saint Teresa of Avila,
The humility of Saint Francis of Assisi,
The strength and perseverance of Saint Anthony.
Guide the lords of power so that the distribution
Of our country’s goods is fairer,
Giving work and sufficient wealth to everyone.
It protects our families so that they are not overcome
By drought, fear, violence, lack of work,
And gives us renewed hope each Sunday of the resurrection.
St. Joseph: Model of All Workers
Glorious St. Joseph,
A model of all that you must work with the sweat of your brow,
Obtain for me the grace to consider work as expiation,
To satisfy so many sins.
Make me work in conscience,
Preferring the faithful fulfillment of my duties
To my capricious inclinations;
Make me work with gratitude and joy,
Putting all my effort and honor in taking advantage of and developing,
Through work, all the talents I have received from God.
Send me to work with tranquility, moderation, and patience
Without being afraid of fatigue and difficulties.
Inspire me often with thoughts of death
And of the account that I must render of lost time,
Of wasted talents, or omissions
And of all vain complacency in successes obtained,
So contrary to the honor of God.
All according to your example,
Oh, faithful and discreet servant of the Divine Will.
Help me to remain constant in the work I have undertaken,
To be faithful to my daily duties,
To endure fatigue, to bear with my daily crosses,
To remain humble in success,
To be patient in trials,
To be ever attentive to the common good,
And to the glory of God.
Oh, St. Joseph,
Whose protection is so great, so strong,
So prompt before the throne of God,
I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession
And obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings,
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
So that, having engaged here below your Heavenly power,
I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most Loving of Fathers.
Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you
And Jesus asleep in your arms.
I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.
Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head
For me, and ask Him to return the Kiss
When I draw my dying breath.
St. Joseph, patron of departing souls,
Pray for us.
