Prayer for Job Seekers

Print Friendly

Gracious and loving God, you know our need for meaningful work. Send your Holy Spirit to guide those who are searching for employment. Help them to recognize the gifts and talents you have given them.

Deepen their desire to follow your will. Inspire them as they contact potential employers. Give them patience as they wait for responses. Shelter them from feelings of rejection. Protect them from discouragement. Give them courage to overcome fear.

Shower on them the graces they need to persevere. Let this time of searching become an opportunity to grow in faith, to cultivate the virtue of hope, and to experience your healing love. We ask this through Chirst our Lord. Amen

    i am unemployed since last 3yrs, i am not getting a job in my interested field ie: HR, m suffering from very bad times. We don’t even have our own house, my family is dependent on me. plz plz plz plz pray for me.

    Hi Suby,

    Do not worry and please continue praying with renewed strength. Through sufferings, Jesus is bringing you closer to his kingdom. I have prayed for you.
    He will bless you abundantly in his time which maybe different from our own desired time.

    “Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14: 27
    God will turn all your sufferings into joy. Do not give up hope how much ever troubling it may be.

    Lots of Prayers

    Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

    Please Cheer up and keep you faith in Lord Jesus Christ daily with prayers. Our Holy Father has never let us down and will never do it. I have been without work for over 6 months now and I am in the process of loosing my house due to the lack of money to pay my mortgage. Despite my hard work trying for a job, I didn’t get a job until last week where I have been offered a contract work for just 3 weeks. I am self-employed IT and data engineer. I thank The Holy Father and his beloved Son Jesus for this short term contract work which is a beginning and so powerful in my heart because of the prayers.

    I will pray for you all and those who are still looking for work so that the Lord of Heaven gives you all the best opportunity as I have in getting a job and that the Holy Spirit guides you in the right direction.

    Glory to God and his Son. God bless you all.

    I am hopeful and thankful! I am glad I no longer have to worry since God is with me all the time. But I surely would like to have help with my prayer for this Thursday’s Career Fair on the 7th in the city of Fairfield, Ca. And that I may be able to stand on my two feet without feeling the sciatic pain on the left side of my lower back.

    God be with us all!
    Thank you in advance!

  16. Christy says:

    I have been jobless for two years now and I have a disability. Some companies say that they are willing to work with disabled people, but sometimes I feel that is not true, and feel like we are looked down upon. I have tried and even worked harder then most people. It’s a battle everyday for me because I know myself, I work really hard to get things done just like a normal person. The depression for me gets really hard makes me feel like I’m never going to get anywhere and out of debt. I also have to now live with family members just to get by. PLEASE PRAY FOR ME. Desperate AND LOST.

Please help me pray for our Lord to lift up his spirit & protect his mind. Thank you

  22. Madelin Kunkel says:

    Please pray for me to get this great job, I have not worked in 2 years and I interviewed for this great job in my current field. I don’t believe the Lord would have sent me there if he was not going to show me that there is “A Light at the End of the Tunnel.” This job would be so great for my family! The Lord knows what we have gone through these past 2 years and he has seen my struggles – if this is not the job for me then, I hope and pray he provides me with one soon, my family and I need it!

  23. Duane says:

    I have said a prayer for all of you who are suffering and fear not.
    Know that God IS answering your prayers. He will show you the way. Listen not to your own fear, but to his voice. He is directing you – but you must hear Him.
    God’s love and peace through Jesus Christ.

  25. Obichima says:

    Pls pray for my elder sister and cousin who are graduates without any form of employment. AMEN

  26. porkest says:

    Prayer and fasting are wonderful, actually the best means to obtain favour in a prayer intention. Also, saying a prayer intention when the host is raised. My Godmother converted back to the Church by virtue of a prayer upon the host! Don’t loose faith, try self employment by turning a shortage u see in your place of habitation into a service which will then be a business. Selling boiled water or juice or rosaries or anything can get you more money than a job… Plus you learn a lot from self employment. God helps those who help themselves. Do you best n let him do the rest! He Reigns..!

  27. Debra says:

    Hello my name is Debra and I been unemployed for the past 5 months and I been applying and getting interviews done.

  34. F says:

    Dear Lord,

    Thank you for all your blessings. Lord I have been unemployed for 2 months. I haven’t received a single call from any employers yet. It’s really weird as I read bible and praise the lord everyday. In the past, things worked out immediately for me. Of late, i just don’t know where or what i am doing is wrong. Lord Jesus you said “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

    Please Lord, I am really interested in this job. I would be really grateful if you could help me. Please lord give me this opportunity..

    “The Lord is my strength, the reason for my song, because he has saved me. I praise and honor the Lord, He is my God!” Amen

  35. Jude says:

    I am in need of gainful employment. I have put my life into God’s hands and pray daily for guidance, strength, courage, and understanding of God’s will. I pray to be directed where I am meant to be and to recognize what I am to do. Please pray for me, that I find fulfilling employment where my talents and gifts are welcomed and appreciated. Thank you.

  36. megan says:

    Please pray for my husband to get a job. He has been out of work for a year and a half now. The company he worked for 23 years went out of business. He is a graphic artist.

  40. Jose says:

    Dear lord, I am at my lowest of lows and could really use your help. I’m unemployed and have no one to help me. I fear that soon I will be displaced from my home and end up on the street. I try my best to do what is asked of me and am really starting to feel lost. I don’t ever ask for anything for myself except for this one time. I could really use your guidance. Your humble servant
