Dear God, I’m praying to you because my family has been through years of financial hardship. My husband can’t work and is on a fixed income for the past seven years. I put myself through school with three young children and thought I was set in my job.
I just lost my job and am now back to square one. I have a huge student loan and piles of bills. Please Dear Lord, help us through this. We haven’t been able to take the kids on a real vacation in eight years!!! We are always running to catch up with our bills. We don’t own a huge house or even fancy cars. Right now, we’re living paycheck to paycheck. We just need a break. My husband’s health is not that great and I need to support the family…please hear my prayers….I know I haven’t been going to church and have probably lost some faith…but I am trying…..

Prayer For Job Loss
Almighty and Loving Father,
As a family we come before you with all our members who are facing financial crisis and fear of job loss. Father, You are our provider. Have mercy on all those who are looking for work. Open doors for them lord. Too many people had been hurt by financial problems. We surrender all who are deeply distressed with financial problems. Come into their life and give them opportunities for new beginnings. Many times we rebel and murmur against You. Still You love us and deal with us in fatherly kindness. Even though You seem far away we know that You have engraved our names upon the palms of Your hands. Give us faith to believe in Your mighty works. We humbly give the lives of all those who are cast down by financial troubles and job-related worries. Lift up their faces with Your grace and mercy. Strengthen them by Your Holy Spirit. Help them to source strength from You to continue their life with absolute faith and perseverance. This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Maybe you are looking for a new job, and finding work is extremely hard? Or perhaps some of your coworkers are incredibly hard to get along with, and you simply need the Lord’s guiding hand to help you through stressful workdays.
It is our Heavenly Father’s wish to love you, protect you, rejoice with you, and carry your burdens for you. With His kindness and grace, all things are possible, even in your day to day activities at work. Allow Him to help you when you feel that all hope is lost. With God, all things are possible. Believe in this, and carry it in your heart. The Lord’s love is great, and He will walk beside you today, tomorrow and always when it comes your employment and beyond. It is His longing to be there for His children!

Prayer for a Job Promotion
You have blessed me with so much in my life, and I am grateful. I have a wonderful family that I love and cherish. I thank you for Your love and devotion, but today I must lay a burden of mine at your feet. Father, You know about the promotion that I am looking to receive. Lord, it would be a huge blessing to receive it. I am not putting my faith in money, but there are bills to be paid, mouths that need feeding, other expenses on my plate. If You will allow me this promotion, I will use it faithfully as You see fit. I will be responsible with it and pay off existing debts. Father, I am giving this completely to You, and whatever Your decision is, I will thank You because You are loving, gracious and generous even in poverty. Amen.
Prayer for Struggles With Coworkers
You are abounding in grace and mercy for Your children, myself included. Lord, work is getting very stressful because of the environment I am in. There are many people who hate You there, and they make my life miserable because they know that I love You. We just don’t see eye to eye on many issues, but it is hard for me when it comes to how You are viewed in the eyes of others. I trust in James as it says, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds.” (James 1:2). I realize the benefit of being persecuted for believing in Jesus, and I gladly accept whatever comes my way, anytime. Please soften the hearts of the people I work with. I will keep planting seeds, Lord. Thank you. Amen.
