Prayer for forgiveness and employment


Dear Lord,

I come to you tonight in prayer and thanksgiving. I thank you for all of the blessings that you have bestowed upon me and my family. I thank you for my wonderful wife, my great children and for all of my family. I thank you for the love that you have given all of us and for our health.

While I am not materially wealthy, I have all that I could ever want. Most of all, I thank you for sending your son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, to show us the way to live and to die on the cross so that we may have eternal life in your presence.

I also come to you in prayer, asking for your forgiveness for all of the misguided mistakes that I have made. I have been a disappointment to myself, as well as you and have brought shame to my family.

I have put myself in a bad situation and humbly ask you to help me find gainful employment so that I may, through you mercy and grace, continue to provide for my family and take care of my financial obligations.

Dear Lord, I lay this request at your feet and so humbly ask for your guidance and help, even though I do not deserve your grace. Dear Lord, please hear my prayer.

In your name I pray,

    I love your petition to Lord
    And I am sure he will also
    I will pray for you this morning
    Right now I stopped at a church
    And just sitting here praying before
    I go to work
    Have a blessed Christmas
