Prayer of the Unemployed

Print Friendly

Dear Lord Jesus Christ, you wanted all who are weary to come to you for support. Lord, I am worn out by my inability to find wage-earning work. Day after day, my worry and fear grow as the rejections of my applications mount. I am able and willing to work but I cannot find a worthwhile job. Please help me to obtain one soon so that I can support myself and my family in a decent way.

However, if it is your will that I wait longer, enable me to worry less and to be able to take advantage of the time available to get closer to you. Let me realize that there are other ways to bring about your kingdom on earth besides salaried work. Help me to make use of them for the time being so that I may continue to grow as a person for your greater glory. Amen

    I have been out of work since August, 2010. I am three months behind on my rent and car payment. I pay my bills one at a time, when they threaten to disconnect my service. My part-time job ended this week. Please pray that one of the jobs I have applied for will come through for me. I will also pray for you. God be with you and those you love.

  8. kimberley says:

    I have been without job for 7 months, because of this I have now ran out of all options. I am very young and my family constantly nags me about being not helping out financially. They also laugh at me (my family because I have faith that god will give me a great opportunity). I feel depressed and deeply hurt sometimes I feel like god hates me but I haven’t lost all faith I still pray but time is running out and I may have to drop out of school. My life has become a pestilence to me. I cry almost every night. I have no idea what to do. I really hope god helps me. I have applied for jobs but I have been waiting so long please pray for me brothers and sisters.

    Hi I’ve been out of work for a year now. And I’m desperate to find a job. I’ve been fortunate to have received unemployment but its time for me to get back into the work field. It has been difficult since my transportation hasn’t been reliable. I want to find a job that will help my parents out as well. God can do so much. I’m just asking for the lord to guide me to the right direction to success. Please pray for me and those who need work as well.. thank you

    I really need a job. Please pray for me that I get one soon. I just got married and my wife is expecting our first child. I am unemployed as of now. I truly need a job. Thank you.

  12. Andrew Brewster says:

    Please pray for me that I find a job soon. I have been unemployed since 2008 and have been desperately looking for a job. I sometimes go for interviews, get told that my interview went well and I will be called for a second interview but this never happens. I sleep and cry all the time and it has come to a point of me refusing to eat. I can’t take it anymore. I have prayed so much and I feel that the Lord has forsaken me, my faith is weak, I’m tired, I’m worn. Please pray for me.

  13. damiano says:

  15. Gratel says:

    I’ve been out of a job since September 2009. I’m brokenhearted n frustrated. I drink my sorrows as I sometimes feel God does not care about me. I’ve lost my car and I’m totally dependent. I don’t know what to do anymore. I sometimes feel I should die as I get sad everyday. I look at people life’s and feel they do a lot better then. All these thoughts come to my mind because I have a lot of time on my hands.
    Yes I do need prayers to find a good job that will take ill thoughts off my mind. Where I can rejoice and believe My God exists. I do believe in God but sometimes I feel he doesn’t love me n he’s not merciful towards me. I know he is busy sorting a lot of more important people in this selfish world. But lord if you are listening I am your child in this selfish world and hoping you will look down on me too.
