Day 9 Novena to find Work
Take heart. There's a better world in store for you. It is only the malice of God's enemies that is preventing you from having a worthwhile vocation. Believe that God holds you secure in His hands; He loves you; He wants what's best for you. Never lose hope.
Work is Prayer
The Novena is finished. You've done all that is humanly possible. There is nothing remaining except to trust in the Lord. He will answer your prayers, maybe not in the manner, nor the time, that you wish. He has said it, and He will do it.
And the confidence that we have towards Him is this, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And we know that he hears us whatever we ask; we know that the requests we make of Him are granted. (1John 5: 14)
He always answers. He will give you what you need, which may not necessarily be what you want. It may be better. Have faith. And always have hope. Thank you, Jesus.
Through the intercession of St. Joseph I ask for work that will bring me close to You, My Lord. I pray that the work be enough to provide for those who depend on me. I only ask to serve You, Lord, and to feel secure in Your Love.
Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
And don't worry. The Lord is near. Have no anxiety, but in every prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God. And may the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians, 4: 4-7) Amen
