Prayer of the Unemployed

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

  2. 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.

  5. Hi
    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.
