Praying 5 days with St Joseph to find a job
3 options to choose from:
*You are looking for a job: ask a trusted friend to ‘sponsor’ you in this novena by helping you with your prayer and encouraging you in your daily actions.
*A loved one or a friend is looking for a job: invite him/her to pray this novena with you. You will become a ‘sponsor’ by encouraging him/her to pray with you and by helping in their daily actions.
*Pray secretly for someone you know who is looking for a job.
Some practical advice:
Pray together:- the one looking for a job and the "sponsor". As Jesus said "where two or three are assembled in MY name, I am in their midst" (Matthew 18). Ask Jesus to give you the courage and perseverance necessary to keep praying every day of the novena.
The Key of this prayers to St. Joseph, the Artisan:
Contemplation is at the heart. In other words: “Help yourself and Heaven will help you”! Simply ABANDON yourself to the grace of God through the intercession of St. Joseph, by letting your prayer time nourish and guide ALL of your daily efforts and actions to find a job that suits you.
Concretely, every day, you will receive:
° An excerpt of the Gospel, that is to say, some personal advice from Jesus to guide you in your search for employment
° A concrete action to do each day to find a job (to put yourself under the best conditions to find the perfect job). the order of these actions should be respected.
° Daily prayer to St. Joseph Artisan, patron of all workers, which we celebrate on the 1st of May!
° One Our Father + one Hail Mary, then recite the invocation: St. Joseph, pray for us!
Bonus: Try to go to confession and receive the Eucharist during the duration of the novena!
