Prayer for the unemployed
(a prayer for breakthrough in finding a new job)
I trust in you as I look for new work.
Lead me to the right job.
I rest in your goodness and give you all I have.
Help me as I seek to find, apply and interview for each position.
You know the skills I have, and the things that I enjoy.
Lord, I ask for more than a wage.
Lead me to a position where I can really feel valued, respected and part of a team.
Please watch over me and my family in this waiting time.
Help me to be confident in knowing your will.
Open the right doors for me, please come and direct my path.
I put my trust in you completely.

Prayer Before Work
(For those who are uncertain about the work they are in)
Lord, I feel confused about life at the moment
I'm not sure I'm in the right place
Thank you that wherever I am
You have gone before
You turn the night into day
Sadness in joy
And mourning into dancing
Help me to live in this place
And through my serving
Bring daylight, laughter and rejoicing
