Day of Prayer for the Unemployed
Lord, there are many people in our nation who are in need of a steady job with sufficient wages to care for themselves and their families.
Help these people remain diligent in their job search.
Give them the confidence they need to succeed and the perseverance to continue on when they become discouraged.
Open the hearts of those responsible for hiring and for the care of unemployed people in industry and in government that they may carry out their work with compassion.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
