Job Hunter’s Prayer

Dear Lord,

You know I’ve been searching for a job for three months.  At times I feel frustrated, and yet I trust You during this time of transition.  You have promised to supply all of my needs according to Your riches in glory.  And You have taught me that all things work together for those who love God.  You’ve also said that You will never leave me or forsake me.  I am holding onto these promises, knowing that You are putting all the details together, and that my new job will open at just the right time.

So often in my life I have seen Your hand bringing together situations and circumstances that have helped me grow in You and that have brought about blessings in ways that I would have never anticipated.  You have continued to provide for us, and I know You won’t stop.  So often you have placed me in places in which there were people who needed to hear words from You that You gave me to speak to them.  I pray that You will put me in the right position where I can be used by You the most.

I admit that I have my own ideas of what kind of a job I should have.  But perhaps You have something entirely different in mind.  You have shown me in Your Word that my thoughts are not Your thoughts and my ways are not Your ways.  So often I have a preconceived notion of what You will do and what I should be doing.  And then You amaze me with something so much better.  So at this point in my job hunt, I lay down all of my ideas at Your feet and ask for You to reveal Your perfect will.  Lead me in the path that You want me to follow.  Help me not to be anxious.  Let Your perfect peace fill me as I wait on You to show me the plan You have for me.

You have reminded me in Your Word that when we are feeling “heavy laden,” we are to come to You for rest.  I do that today.  Before I open up my computer to once again explore job openings and send out resumes, I ask that You will help me to draw near to You and to rest in Your Presence.  Let me be filled with praise for You and hope for the future.  Keep my attitude upbeat and keep my heart yielded to You.  I know that You hold me and my family in Your hand.  Our future is bright because You continue to pour out Your goodness and mercy on us.

Help me to know what I should do to prepare myself spiritually, mentally, and emotionally as I go about my job search.  Give me the right connections with the right people.  Open the doors that I should go through and close the doors that I should not go through.  I want Your perfect will in my life and in my job situation.

I love You and I trust You, Lord.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
