Prayer for Help to Know God’s Will and to Find Work

by David (Central Pennsylvania)

God,

I have prayed to you for a very long time now to know your will for my life and how I fit into your plan. I would like to serve you so that I may find peace and be happy, but I don’t know how. As you know, I went back to school after being laid off from my last job to do something I thought was more in line with your will.

It was very hard to get through the program, but I worked hard and remained faithful believing I was doing something that was in your service to help others. Maybe I was wrong since I have not found anything since graduating over half a year ago.
I don’t understand why you have not answered my prayer for help. I need to find something to support the family that you blessed me with and I need to find it soon.

Our situation is getting worse and I am desperate for your help. Basic necessities are becoming impossible to meet and the specter of becoming homeless is drawing closer. Please help. I do not want my family to suffer any more than they already have.

I don’t know what test or challenge is behind this situation, but I pray that it be over soon. If I am being punished for my sins, I beg your forgiveness. Please give me the strength to be a better person and to overcome this difficulty. Please help me find work so that I can take care of my family.

Please have it be something that is within your will so I may thrive and grow while helping others. I need your help and guidance. Please hear my prayer. Please help me.

Amen
