I've decided to just march through the book in the way it is organized. The first few will relate to work and jobs.
Many times, when I was seeking work and not finding it, I realized that looking for work is a universal problem, and as old as humanity. I remembered that even the Holy Family had its troubles, too. I have often substituted the names of folks I care about, many times, in this little prayer.
Please do not pass it around without giving credit to the author (me) and where it was published - a line like this will do: by Evelyn Mayfield, in the Busy Person's Prayer Book.
For a Job
Father, you helped the carpenter when
He fled to Egypt and back again
Please help me find a job to do
Like Joseph, we rely on you.
