I Need a Job
I am willing and ready to work. It is harder for me not to work than to work. Yes, there are some jobs I have turned down because they cannot support the financial obligations I am currently under. However if there is a lesser job than what I have had in the past that I need to accept for the purpose of humility and because there will be greater opportunities there, I pray that you help me to find pride in whatever I put my hand to.
I do ask that You would help me find the job that matches my abilities and training, that will meet my financial obligations, that will give me an opportunity to shine. I pray that my name would come to mind with friends and former colleagues who know of job opportunities that are right for me.
I pray that You would open doors for me as I seek interviews. Give me special creativity in finding the right employment situation. I ask for determination to keep turning my application in—even if I must face many rejections before finding the right job.
If there are special areas of service I can perform during this time of unemployment, I thank You for putting me to good use. I know there will be blessings within the tasks I perform—and perhaps service will be the avenue through which I find my next job.
I trust You to meet all my needs and I thank You that You are working on my behalf to find the right job.
In Jesus’ mighty name.
But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me. —Micah 7:7 niv
