Lord Jesus, my desire to work is itself your gift. You gave me talents so I could shine Your light to the world. Send Your Spirit to guide me to work that will provide security and joy, and most of all the ability to serve You in love. St. Jude, I do not know where I am going – and so I call upon you in my need. Bless my spirit with the determination to continue on with energy. Give my heart patience and fortitude. Help me, dear friend, to remember that God’s plan for me is forged out of love. Amen.
