I had a job interview today and have 2 more tomorrow. And somehow I have lost my wallet in the last 2 days. I would ask for your prayers, please. Thank you in advance!

I pray to St. Anthony of Padua, the never failing patron saint of small, lost items to intercede in finding your wallet.

I pray to St. Xenia of Petersburg to help you and all seeking employment to find a job. She is a great patroness for this intention:

O HOLY AND MOST BLESSED MOTHER XENIA,
who lived under the protection of the Most High and
were strengthened by the Mother of God, and who en-dured
hunger and thirst, cold and burning heat, oppres-sion
and persecution: You have received from God the gift
of clairvoyance and the power to work miracles, and you
rest under the shelter of the Almighty. The Holy Church
now glorifies you as a fragrant blossom. Praying before
your holy icon, we ask you, as one who is alive and with us:
Accept our petitions, and offer them up before the throne
of the loving Father of heaven; and, since you have boldness
before Him, for those who have recourse unto you ask
eternal salvation, compassionate blessing upon our good
works and undertakings, and deliverance from all misfor-tunes
and sorrows. In your holy supplications before our
most merciful Savior, intercede for us, the unworthy and
sinful. O holy and blessed Mother Xenia, help our children
to receive illumination by the light of holy baptism and the
seal of the gift of the Holy Spirit; raise our youths and
maidens in faith, honesty, and the fear of God, and grant
them success in their studies; heal the infirm; send down
love and concord upon families; account monastics worthy
to fight the good fight and protect them from oppression;
make our pastors steadfast in the might of the Holy Spirit;
preserve the Orthodox faithful in peace and tranquility;
and pray for those who at the hour of their death are
deprived of the communion of the Holy Mysteries of
Christ. You are our trust and hope, speedily hearkening to
us and delivering us, Unto you do we send up thanks, and
with you do we glorify the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages.
Amen.

Found the wallet today! Thank you for the prayers. Since I am no longer near a church, can someone bake a Phanourios cake for me and take it to their Church in thanks for the intercessions of St Phanourios? I still need job prayers however please.

Well tentatively, I have a job in Pueblo, Colorado, starting Monday as a manager in training at a furniture store, as long as I pass the in-depth background checks. Also, pending passing the background tests, I have another restaurant in Aurora, Colorado that would be willing to hire me to be their manager in August. So I thank everyone for their prayers and ask prayers that my background checks prove positive impressions on these potential future employers.

Thank you! I start tomorrow at one job, but the first 2 weeks are considered tentative until the background checks are done and passed. Thank you all for your prayers!

Prayers for success for my brother and friend; I know well the stress involved in unemployment and job-hunting.
