Morning Collect for the Unemployed

Heavenly Father, we remember before you all those who suffer want and anxiety from lack of work.  Guide the people of this land so to use our public and private wealth that all may find suitable and fulfilling employment, and receive just payment for their labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

(BCP 824)

thank you for the prayer today. I was thinking of my niece as I read it who, again, has received word that she was not successful at a recent job interview. It get so disheartening for youngsters who send so much time looking for work only to be turned away.
Judy, I'm sorry to hear about your niece's unemployment. So many talented people are un- or under employed and not able to share their gifts with the world. I hope that she'll have success very soon.
