Please pray for all unemployed persons to find jobs.

This is a prayer circle for all unemployed persons seeking jobs right now in these troubled times, during this troubled economy. It is not for any one person in particular. It is for all who are seeking employment and all of us who love someone seeking employment. It can be very frustrating. It can be discouraging. This society puts so much emphasis on what a person does for a living and not the kind a person he or she is. Let us pray for those who seek employment to find jobs in which they will be happy and in which the Lord's will is done.

I know many people that are out of work right now and searching and finding nothing. These are all hardworking people that have dedicated their lives to jobs only to be laid off, sometimes without warning.

Dear Lord:

Please be with the people seeking jobs and give them guidance, patience and wisdom knowing that Your will is greater than any earthly will. Please shower these persons with love and help their families have patience. Please guide the prospective employers to hire these qualified individuals. In Jesus name I pray. Amen. Thanks for visiting this prayer cirle - Lwilrey

Abba Father, you are a good daddy, we can rely on your help in time of need. Let us look to you in faith when we are in need, whatever that need may be, including unemployment. Lord help those who are seeking employment to find work. Place them Lord in positions where they will be able to prosper, and in return will be able to bless others with the same blessings they have received themselves from you Lord. Look after the needy Lord until they find employment, may they see that all good gifts come from the Father of lights -- our good Daddy which we can rely on at all times. We all need our Father's blessing. Bless those Abba Father that need your blessings. In Jesus name I pray.

I am unemployed. I have faith God will bring me the right opportunity when myself and he are ready and my contribution is ready to be received. I also know of many others who are also having difficulty finding employment in these trying times. I pray for the world to heal and be ready to receive all the gifts of those ready and open to serving God's will. I also pray for all of us to continue to have faith and trust in God.

My husband was laid off from his position due to the WTC attacks. So many people suffered due to this evil act. Let us seek prayers of faith, of restoration, joy, and mostly hope. It is difficult to feel the love of God and the hope of promise with some much uncertainty and fear.
I pray for God's loving arms to be felt for all of those (including my spouse) who are suffering.

I know the pain and frustration of those who are unemployed with no reserve funds or other financial assistance available. Thank God I am working now after 2 months of unemployment and I went through the same situation last year. I now am faced with the knowledge that I may have to continue looking because the job I have may be temporary. I pray that God will assist me in my search, but I also pray that God will hear the many prayers of all his unemployed children. If we can only find comfort in knowing that God is our source and we all work for Him. In that respect we are never unemployed, we are just seeking an opportunity to do God's will in a way that will provide compensation. My experience has been that God will provide for us, maybe not in the way that we had hoped - but he will provide. If faith were easy, it wouldn't be faith. Please keep praying and trusting that God will provide. And then be looking for unexpected blessings from God.

12/1/2001 23:13

Thank You all for your Prayer's.

Hi I would like to wrote something in Spanish. I hope you can understand that there are some pleople who might want to pray but they can't understand what we just wrote: If you don't like it please let me know @
Dios tu que todo lo puedes quiero pedirte que por favor le des ayuda, paciencia y consuelo a todas esas personas que debido a los ataques terroristas perdieron su trabajo. En estos dias es muy dificil encontrar un empleo lo cual muchas de las veces pierden toda la Fe. Te suplico Señor por toda esa gente desempleada a tratar de sobre llevar esta situacion y no perder la Esperanza de que pronto encontraran un trabajo. Te lo pido Dios en el nombre de tu Hijo Amado Jesucristo. AMEN.

I have a partner who is seeking a new job, and I pray that he will find the job that is right for him. I pray that all people will find the work that they need to be self-sufficient. The words of lwilrey really struck a responsive note as I read them, and I pray that we all see the true worth of each individual, and not be concerned with what a person does for a living, or how much money they earn. May we instead learn to see the light that shines from within. May I remember to be generous to those less fortunate, because I always have more than I think I have. May I develop a greater awareness of my own gifts, and be thankful every day. Blessings to all people.

Heavenly Father,
Thank you so much for blessing me with this job. Heavenly father I know what unemployed people are going through. It is so difficult father when you have no money and you do not know how you will make it. Heavenly father I pray that these people who are unemployed realize that they are going through this for a reason and even if they do not know you know. P.S. I ask that everyone pray for me as well, because I may become full-time very soon. I just ask that it goes well.

God bless lwilrey for initiating this prayer circle. I do believe that God works in mysterious ways....His wonders to perform. Its not very easy to see this however when you are in the murky waters of unemployment and uncertainty - as I currently am also. This is where our faith has got to be really strong. Heavenly Father, Thou who can close one door and which no other power can open, and yet open doors and windows of oppurtunities which no other power can close, we humbly beseech thee that all in this situation be at peace because we know that your will be done. Nothing is too difficult for thee Father. You are indeed a miracle working Lord. Grant us the patience and perseverance to wait on you. AMEN

We thank you Lord for our new jobs and new salaries that will be beyond our understand of how we got them and we will forever give you all praise, honor and glory in Jesus name Amen. All employed please be encourge help is on the way. My daily bread for November 30 reads "When we keep our eyes on Christ obstacles become opportunities.

For all those unemployed at this time, I ask that The Divine intervene and provide for their care, provide them with jobs. In this time of so much change, we realize that nothing is as it was before, but we Know that we are sacred, chosen, and deserving of all your Love and your Prosperity. Help all of us who are without means right now. We will wait for your plan to unfold, but help us in the meantime. We give thanks for all your blessings and for your continual presence and aid. Direct us if it is ourselves who are the source of our own unemployment. Teach us what we must learn. Jobs are so numerous as to be almost infinite. Spread these around to those who need them. With wholehearted and soul-felt Gratitude, I say Amen.

I was laid off in early December and have relentlessy been searching and seeking employment. I love God and I usually have a close relationship but here lately (even though I know it is wrong) I have been doubting and shaking in my faith. I hear no answers to any of my questions and I feel so desperate. Though he clothes the lillies of the valley, I am about to make my husband and I homeless by being unemployed and I am so worried and lonely that I turn to you for spiritual support and prayer. I send out so many resumes, apply at so many jobs and have even had several interviews but no results. I don't even feel like our father cares here lately. I listen and I talk but only silence returns. Please help me in prayer.
Sincerely humbled, patricia anderson

Reading the above messages and prayers have been very enlightening and encouraging me (the only breadwinner in the family) who has also been out of job for nearly a year now. The situation seems daunting. But I always find inspiration (and hopefully the others do) in our Lord JESUS who tells us not to worry "BUT SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU AS WELL." (Mt 6:33). So each one should just "TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING; IN ALL YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATHS" (Pr 3:5-6). Therefore, I am confident that "THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT BE IN WANT" (Ps 23:1). HE is YOURS TOO.

So, I join my brothers and sisters above in praying to our ALMIGHTY FATHER throught His only son JESUS CHRIST, our Lord and Saviour, to grant us our needs. Amen.

iam the wife of a man so stress out about life and is so discouraged and down on himself because he can't provide for his family the way he wants to. i pray that families struggling in the same situation would find peace and hope for a brighter tomarrow when God renew our hope each day when we cannot see the full picture only the moment or situation things can look very bad but God never leaves us or forsakes us it is us who forget to draw near to him.

I pray for peace and joy in knowing that you know what they need and that you have a purpose for their lives and tht you always bring good out of bad for all things work together for those who love God.In Jesus name I pray Amen
