Prayer For Work

Dear Heavenly Father,
As I enter my workplace today, I invite you to join me so that everyone here will sense your presence. I give you this day and ask you to work through me by the power of the Holy Spirit.
May I convey your peace, just as I am aware of your comforting proximity at all times. Fill me with your grace, mercy, ?and power to serve you and others in this place.
Lord Jesus, I want you to be glorified in my life and in this place of business. I pray you will be Lord over everything that is said and done here.
God, I thank you for the numerous blessings and gifts you have given me. May I bring honor to your name and spread joy to others.
Holy Spirit, help me to depend on you wholly today. Renew my strength. Fill me with physical and spiritual energy so that I will be the best employee I can be. Give me eyes of faith to see from a heavenly perspective as I do my job.
Lord, guide me with your wisdom. Help me to work through every challenge and conflict. Let me be a beacon for you and a blessing to my coworkers.
My prayer is to be a living witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In the name of Jesus,

Creator God,
thank you for providing us
with the gift to share our talents.

Provide our community, our nation, our world
the fortitude to provide work for all
which is decent and fair.

Make us faithful stewards
of your creation
to enhance the human dignity
of our global family.

We ask this in the name of Jesus,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit
now and forever.


Dear Heavenly Father, You have said in Your Word to cast all our burdens on You and the trust in You for all our needs. Father, I have tried every avenue and feel almost distraught as I have been unable to secure any work for many months, even though I have made so many applications. It is discouraging Lord, when no matter how hard I try, I cannot get any work and have not even been asked to attend for an interview. Please Lord, help me I pray.

Father, I want to be a good provider for my family and yet I am unable to get a job to secure sufficient for the bare necessities of life. I am crying out to You for Your help and grace in this situation.

Forgive me if I have sought to do things in my own strength, but Father I come to You in my helplessness, and pray that in You pity and mercy, You would provide me with the job that I need so badly.

I put my trust in You alone for You alone can help me. I pray that in Your merciful kindness, You would provide the job I so desperately need. To You be all the praise and the glory. In Jesus' name,


Lord, I come to You as Your child and bless You for bringing me into Your family and setting my feet on the solid ground of Christ Jesus my Lord. Oh Lord my place of work is becoming so very difficult as there are many that are picking on me, almost to the point of persecution, simply because I am a Christian.

Lord, I know that we are to count it all joy when we are placed in difficult situations and trials of various kinds, but at times it becomes so hard and I pray that in Your strength I will be able to stand firm on my faith in You and remain a true and faithful witness to the truth of the gospel.

Lord I pray that You would use me, even in this difficult situation to share the truth with my colleagues, and that I would not say or do anything that would discredit Your holy name. I pray that Your Holy Spirit would soften the hearts of my colleagues towards the Lord Jesus Christ, convict them of their need of a Saviour, and bring them at last to saving faith in You. Thank You that You died for me and rose again and I cast all my care upon You. In Jesus' name I pray,


Heavenly Father, I do thank you for graciously providing this job for me so that I in turn can fend for my own family, but Lord, it means that I am having to work far away from my home, with long spells apart from family, and this is placing quite a strain on all of us.

Lord, it was You who instituted marriage and You were the one that ordained that a man and woman would live together and be united as one, but we are constantly separated and this is hard to bear. Please look on our situation and I ask that You would move me to a job closer to home, which will enable me to spend more time with the family and not to be apart for so long at a time.

Keep me patient as I wait Your good and perfect time and give me I pray, Your sufficient strength. Keep us ever looking to You as the rock upon which our life and family is founded. In Jesus' name I pray,


Dear Lord, You have promised that before we call You will answer and while we are still speaking, You will hear. Lord, You know the difficult situation that I have found myself in and I come to You again to ask that in Your grace and kindness, You would provide for me and my family with the job that I so desperately need.

Lord, I know that there are many people in this same situation, but I am Your child and You have promised to provide for our needs according to Your riches in glory. Provide for me speedily I pray, with a job so that I may provide for the needs of my family.

Open the door of opportunity I pray for me, so that I may not fall into debt and keep abreast of the household bills that seem to keep mounting. Have mercy on me I pray. Have mercy on my family and others that are in the same situation. Help Your children Lord. It says somewhere in the Bible that I have never seen the godly begging for bread. Father, I do not deserve Your kindness, but the Lord Jesus is my Saviour, and I ask that You would find me a job for the sake of Your dear Son, Who died for me and rose again so that I might become one of Your children by faith in Him.

In Jesus' name I pray,


Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for your provision for me up to now. You have never failed or forsaken me, but Lord, You know all about my situation and the fears that keep welling up inside my heart, and I come to You today to ask that You would calm my fears, for You are my God and You are more familiar with my present circumstances that I am.

So Lord, You know the burden that I am carrying and the concern I have that I may lose my job in the near future, due to the changes that are taking place at work, and Lord You also know the family responsibilities that I have as well and, oh Lord I just want to lay all these worries at Your feet and ask You to straighten out the path ahead of me. I pray that my job may be safe, but Lord, I also know that I may be made redundant or be laid off, and I am so concerned as I would not be in a position to meet all the financial needs that I have.

Lord, into Your hands I give my situation and am trusting You, for I have no help except in You. Pour your peace that passes all understanding into my heart so that I may rest in You and abide in You. And Lord, should my current work position be terminated, I do trust You to provide me with the work that I need. Keep me ever trusting in You, for You alone are my Rock and my help in time of trouble. Whatever happens, I pray that I may praise Your name, for You alone are worthy. In Jesus' name I pray,


Thank You, Lord, that You are my Father and I am Your child. Thank You that I have been washed clean and transferred into Your kingdom of light. Lord, I know that in this world we will have tribulation, but I thank You that You have overcome the world. Help me never to forget these important truths, even when times are tough and when difficulties and irritations seem to mount up on every side.

Lord, I bring You the thing that is weighing heavily on my heart at this moment, my situation at work is becoming so difficult. I am so grateful for the job which I know was from You, and for which I thank You with all my heart, but Father I am not utilising the training and talents, with which You have equipped me, and I ask that in Your grace You would lift me out of this demoralising position and open a door so that I may pursue the career for which I have been trained.

Lord, should it be Your will that I remain in this job, please give me the grace to continue on, for I know that Your grace is sufficient. Keep me ever looking to Jesus, knowing that this world is not my home, and may I be used to Your praise and glory in whatever place I find myself. In Jesus' name I pray,
