I'm new to this board but I have been reading it from time to time in the past. This is my first post and I'd just like to share this with you to see what your thoughts are on it.
I have been praying for a decent job for three years now after graduating from uni with a degree in multimedia. I feel like my prayers are never going to be answered as over the years I've tried countless novenas (including the 9 tuesdays to st anthony, just finished the divine mercy novena, i usually say it evey day etc) I also went to mass every morning over easter while i was jobless as well as going to confessions regularly. I go to mass every sunday, pray the rosary every day, maybe even a few times a day with other novenas and prayers.
I'm 26 and every time I go to church here in Australia, I'm always one of the youngest there. I look around the city and I see other people around the same age and younger who have their careers started and who laugh about the idea of believing in God while I'm praying like a mad-man, working in a warehouse (again) and feeling like my prayers are never going to be answered. This eats away at my faith.
I've been to Medjugorje two times and as a result I try to keep a strong faith but I just wonder why God has not answered my prayers for this one favour over the years.
I am not exaggerating when I say I have applied for 100+ jobs in my field of study and have had four interviews with no luck at all. Maybe some of you out there have had similar stories which I'd like to hear which will keep my hopes alive. Please can I ask you all to pray for me so that my career starts soon....
