St. Jude Prayer for the Unemployed


Pray to St. JudeLord Jesus, my desire to work is itself your gift. You gave me talents so I could shine Your light to others in 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 press on. Give my heart patience and fortitude. Help me, dear friend, to know that God’s plan for me is forged out of love. Amen.

Post your prayer or petition below for those struggling with unemployment. Or if you would like, send your special intentions for those struggling with unemployment to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine of St. Jude where it will be prayed for by the Claretians.

    Dear St Jude,

    I am here asking for your speedy intercession again in my desperate need. I have been seeking for a job for 6 months now. I have recently done two interviews and patiently waiting to hear for the results. St. Jude, please touch the hearts of the recruiter and hiring manager to pick me, to give the job to me. I need this job so much to help my family. You know how well my intentions are, St. Jude. I am desperate for your help. Please help me get this job at Mercedes-Benz Canada.

    Thank you very much for all my answered prayers in the past, my Patron of Hope.

    Blessed be the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
    Blessed be the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
    Blessed be St. Jude Thaddeus for all the world and for all eternity.

    Please, Father, shine your light on me – to know where my next career steps should go. Being afraid and broken is not what serves You or my life… my heart is aching, and I’m asking for your help.

    To you, I give my life. I surrender.

    St. Jude, please guide me through this difficult time of mine. I lost my job and have to support my wife, and my children. Please help me so that I not only support my family, but also to be an inspiration. I pray that whatever I need is acting through Gods will, and I am only his lowly servant. I dont seek worldy pleasures or earthly riches, but i want to grow spiritually, and earn wisdom. Please st. Jude help me.
