Father of Divine Providence, Patron Saint of Job-Seekers & the Unemployed

Matthew 23:3-4

“All things therefore whatever they tell you to observe, observe and do,
 but don’t do their works; for they say, and don’t do.””For they bind heavy burdens that are grievous to be borne,
and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves
will not lift a finger to help them”

Prayer to St Cajetan

Glorious Saint Cajetan, acclaimed by
all people to be the father of

Providence, you provide miraculous aid to

all in need, I stand here before you today,
asking that you present to the Lord our God
the requests that I confidently deposit
in your hands today.
May these graces that I now request
help me to always seek the Kingdom
of God and his Righteousness,
knowing that God — who dresses with
beauty the flowers of the field and
abundantly feeds the birds of the
sky — will give me all other

things.
in this I pray, Amen
Oh St. Cajetan, whose inspiration has been a light for multitudes of unemployed, bless our hearts with the light of Christ so that we may be a beacon for others and hold Him in our bosom as you also did. We implore thee for special grace to endure our most troublesome time and not forget the poor in spirit and consequence. Please be by our side and guide us in the will of the Lord.
in this I pray, Amen

Jesus, a Source of Guidance: Jeremiah 29:11-131 Peter 5:6-9 (ESV).

Jeremiah 29:11-13

11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[a] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.

Peter 5:6-9

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith

 

Absolute and all knowing God,
Nothing is hidden from Your sight.
In the prescience since the beginning.
God, our Father, My son is seeking your divine help and guidance as he looks for suitable employment. He is grateful for the job he has now but needs your knowledge to direct him to another job to serve you. He needs your wisdom to guide his footsteps along the right path, and to lead him to find the proper things to say and do in this quest. He wishes to use the gifts and talents you have given him, but he needs the opportunity to do so with gainful employment that is appreciated. Do not abandon him, dear Father, in this search, but rather grant him this favor he seeks so that he may return to you with praise and thanksgiving for your gracious assistance. Grant this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Job 35:3 ESV

that you ask, ‘What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?’

Job 35:6 ESV

If you have sinned, what do you accomplish against him? And if your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to him?

Book of Job:

The book of Job, one of the wisdom books of the Bible, deals with two issues crucial to every person: the problem of suffering and the sovereignty of God.

SparkNotes

Bible: The Old Testament

The question is a theme in the Old Testament: how can God remain good despite the fact that he allows evil and human suffering to exist?

Thank you R from Cam Care.  I remembered you prayed and enlightened me about the Book of Job. I still have so much to learn.
