Prayer for the Unemployed

Dear Father in Heaven, and all the Saints who are known to help those in most need, especially Saint Joseph, Saint Jude, Saint Anthony, Saint Therese, and Saint Josemaria, we humbly beg you to hear our cries for help to provide work and income for those among us who need just those things, patience and loving trust in your Divine Providence for those who must wait for these things to come, and strength, creativity, inspiration, guidance, and energy for those who must search and struggle to find these things. We trust in Your desire to answer our prayers as quickly as possible; we believe in Your holy promise to provide daily bread, and we ask you to respond mercifully to so many prayers, from so many of us, for our brothers and sisters in need. Thank you. We love you. Amen.

As a Roman Catholic I have been warned to avoid Devotions which were not Christ Centered. The Centering Prayer movement within the Catholic Chuch is suspect on these grounds...as is the prayer for the unemployed above. To leave Christ out of this prayer is a little too New Age for me. Be careful! Christ must always be at the center of our Faith.
