Prayer for Job Seekers

For many months I have been praying for eight people who are unemployed.. I have been praying for a few since last January. Please send an email or leave a comment if you are a job seeker. I invite you to remember those you know who are seeking work and pray this prayer with me.

Gracious and loving God, you know our need for meaningful work.
Send your Holy Spirit to guide those who are searching for employment.
Help them to recognize the gifts and talents you have given them.
Deepen their desire to follow your will.
Inspire them as they contact potential employers.
Give them patience as they wait for responses.

Shelter them from feelings of rejection.
Protect them from discouragement. Give them courage to overcome fear.

Shower on them the graces they need to persevere.
Let this time of searching become an opportunity to grow in faith,
to cultivate the virtue of hope, and to experience your healing love.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

Amen.

This prayer is from the folks at St George Church.

  12. Please pray for me to find a good job. After almost 1 nmonths of searching, it is very challenging to keep positive. So many laid off here in Houston, competing with so many others. Pray for all who are struggling with this and that those who have opportunity to offer, may our applications stand out and be seen and viewed as being the right candidate. In Jesus name, I pray.
