Daily Prayer To St. Joseph For Employment

Updated: September 18, 2023

I received this email from one of my subscribers and thought I’d post it in my blog as I receive a lot of prayer requests daily from people asking for prayers for employment. Please read the email below:


I found this prayer in my Daughters toy box, I believe it belonged to my grandfather who always prayed to St Joseph for assistance.

Dear St. Joseph,

You were yourself once faced with the responsibility of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary.

Look down with fatherly compassion upon me in my anxiety over my present inability to support my family.

Please help me to find gainful employment very soon, so that this heavy burden of concern will be lifted from my heart, and that I am soon able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to my care.

Help us to guard against bitterness and discouragement so that we may emerge from this trial spiritually enriched and with even greater blessings from God.

Say One Decade of the Rosary


If you know someone who is unemployed, you can give this to her/him.

If you have a prayer to St. Joseph which you would like to share with readers of this blog, please feel free to email me at babes@stjosephsite.com and I will post it.

    I have been unemployed for about two years. Somedays are harder then others. It has put me in a bad depression that i can’t seem to get out of. It kills me when I can’t provide for my family or myself. O pry that ST Joseph will help me though this journey to get pass this depression. I pray for life to be enjoyable again.

    Saint Joseph please help my husband gain peace of mind and a job he will love and retire from. He has been trying his best for 8 years to provide for our family but something always leads him to become unemployed and our family to close to homelessness. For our marriage and our family I need him to be happy again, without a job he self destructing. Please help him find a job.

    I moved for my husband’s job and can’t get a break here for myself. I got a call for a job with a Catholic hospital interview. I prayed this prayer for another callback interview and hire. I am trying to find a job that balances family and career. Thank you for this prayer. I prayed to St. Joseph when I sold my home as well. I did! I need all the prayer I can get. Thank you!
