Do not abandon me, dear Father, in this search, but rather grant me this favor I seek so that I may return to you with praise and thanksgiving for your gracious assistance. Grant this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

St. Cajetan, you lovingly provided financial assistance to the unemployed and often went without in order to bless the families of the unemployed with the basic necessities of life. Pray dear saint for all those who are currently unemployed and seeking employment, especially (name of the person). Intercede for them now before the Lord and beg Him to not only provide for their immediate needs but to lead them to gainful employment so that they can be financially secure. Inspired by your example, may we be kind, generous, and helpful in every way to those we know who are seeking employment. Thank you St. Cajetan for your example and your unceasing prayers. Amen.
