Saint Joseph, I, your unworthy child, greet you. You are the faithful protector and intercessor of all who love and venerate you. You know that I have special confidence in you and that, after Jesus and Mary, I place all my hope of salvation in you, for you are especially powerful with God and will never abandon your faithful servants. Therefore I humbly invoke you and commend myself, with all who are dear to me and all that belong to me, to your intercession. I beg of you, by your love for Jesus and Mary, not to abandon me during life and to assist me at the hour of my death.

Glorious Saint Joseph, spouse of the Immaculate Virgin, obtain for me a pure, humble, charitable mind, and perfect resignation to the divine Will. Be my guide, my father, and my model through life that I may merit to die as you did in the arms of Jesus and Mary.

Loving Saint Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, I raise my heart to you to implore your powerful intercession in obtaining from the Divine Heart of Jesus all the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death, and the special grace I now implore <<insert your prayer request>>

Guardian of the Word Incarnate, I feel confident that your prayers in my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God. Amen.

St. Joseph Novena for Job Seekers (Version 3)

O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. Please assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, so I may find a job soon and be able to support my family. O Saint Joseph, I never tire of praying to you, and thinking about the baby Jesus asleep in your arms. Ask Jesus for His help in my job search. O Saint Joseph, hear my prayers and obtain my petitions. O Saint Joseph, pray for me.

St. Joseph Novena Prayers for Employment (Version 4)

O good father, Joseph! I beg you, by all your sufferings, sorrows and joys, to obtain for me what I ask. Help me find a job quickly that meets my financial needs and has a long and stable future. By the work of your hands and the sweat of your brow, you supported Jesus and Mary, and had the Son of God as your fellow worker.

When I find a job, teach me to work as you did, with patience and perseverance, for God and for those whom God has given me to support. Teach me to see in my fellow workers the Christ who desires to be in them, that I may always be charitable and forbearing towards all.

Grant me to look upon work with the eyes of faith, so that I shall recognize in it my share in God’s own creative activity and in Christ’s work of our redemption, and so take pride in it.

When it is pleasant and productive, remind me to give thanks to God for it. And when it is burdensome, teach me to offer it to God, in reparation for my sins and the sins of the world. 

Amen.

Novena to St Joseph for a Job (Version 5)

St. Joseph is the patron saint of job seekers hence, there are many prayers devoted to him. Here is another version of novena to get a job

Saint Joseph, foster-father and protector of Jesus Christ, spouse of the blessed Virgin Mary the Mother of God, powerful protector of the Holy Church, to you do I raise my heart and hands to implore your powerful intercession to help me find a job. You searched nothing else in this world but the glory of God and the good of others. You gave yourself completely to the Savior, it was cause for joy to pray, to work, to sacrifice yourself, to suffer, to die for him. You were unknown in this world even though Jesus knew you very well, he would look at your simple and hidden life with complacency. Saint Joseph, you have helped so many people so far I come to you with great trust. In the light of God you can see what misses me, you know my worries, my difficulties, my sorrow.

I am placing it in your hands that saved baby Jesus. Ask for the grace to never separate me from Jesus by the mortal sin, to know him and love him even more and his blessed Mother, to always live in the presence of God, to do anything for his glory and the good of other souls, and one day to reach the beatific vision of God to praise him eternally with you. 

Amen.

  1. Dear Naomi, may the blessings of God be with you. I hope you can help us.

    My husband is without work, he did piecework for a year working with the administration of refugees into Australia into hotels. He is 60 , a trained Mental Health Nurse, but we have been evicted due to two episodes of non payment of rent. We also had a rescue dog which was not included on the lease. I am 64, depressed and wish I could be hit by a bus. We pay $600 per fortnight to a single bedroom with dog to a Chinese landlord but the ability to continue diminishes daily/ I have always believed in the power of prayer but my marriage is desperately strained and my husband grows increasingly impatient with me.

  2. I need urgent prayer please…Have been unemployed for a long time…Kindly pray that I get hired as soon as possible…Ihave many obligations to meet with…Thank you in advance.
