I have been unemployed for six months now, I did not get unemployment and now I only have two months savings to live off; I’m deeply worried that I will end up on the streets if I cannot pay my rent.
I have fasted and prayed but God has not answered my prayer, I think he has turned his back on me I feel so alone and forsaken. Please, please pray for me that God will perform a spiritual miracle and bless me with employment.
To be honest, I am thinking about ending my life because I will not be able to survive on the streets.
Thanks in advance for your prayers.
Return to 7 Daily Prayers to Get You Through The Week
by Mark (Australia)
Lord, I have been out of work for many months now. I cried out to you for favour and yesterday you opened up an interview for me Lord, for a very good post, the right job, in the right location and among the right people. Now lord I pray for your favour, that the result is positive, that I get this job.
Even as I wait for the decision to be made, I pray for your favour. Lord cancel out my mistakes in the interview; replace those wth your goodness; Lord let the dark and petty things fade away, Let the skills, and talents you have given me shine.And let them pick me for the position. I pray for my interviewees, bless them Lord direct them to make the right decision.
And as I wait for the call Lord, please calm my nerves, let me have your peace to know that all is well, that you have already given it to me, so that Lord, I can continue to sow in your kingdom and be a blessing to others. I receive your favour and peace Lord, for which I thank you and i take possession of the job. Amen
Most people require a job to make their way in the world. Lacking a job can feel like everything is against you. Yet God provides to those who have faith. Remember Matthew 6:26:
Look at the birds in the air, they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
The Lord provides to those who ask for assistance in faith and then work to achieve their goals. Through God all things are possible. If the words you wish to say won’t come out, here is a prayer for employment that you can use.
God, our Father, I turn to you seeking your divine help and guidance as I look for suitable employment. I need your wisdom to guide my footsteps along the right path, and to lead me to find the proper things to say and do in this quest. I wish to use the gifts and talents you have given me, but I need the opportunity to do so with gainful employment. 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.
Here is another:
God be with me today in finding employment. Lead me to work that I love, and that has value. Guide me to a place with an atmosphere of respect and cooperation, in a safe and happy environment. Help me to find fulfillment mentally and financially. Thank you God, for bringing this to me today.
If you have just lost your job, reflect on this prayer:
Lord, I am coming to you today with a heavy heart filled with regret over the past, and anxiety for the future. I am out of work, and my finances are in deep trouble. I have made many mistakes. Help me to forgive myself, and others, so that I may make amends with all concerned.
Grant me peace of mind, so I can fill my life with your goodness and grace. Guide me toward a good job where I may fulfill my needs as a better and wiser person. Thank you Lord, for listening to me and helping me today. Life is not always easy, but I will strive to remember that You are always there to help me As you are right in this moment. Thank you!
