Prayer for strength and guidance in unemployment

by Mav (Maryland)

Am praying for strength and guidance during this my time of need and despair. I have been unemployed since June when I was laid off from my job. Bills are catching up and I will be losing my house soon. I am asking for God’s favor for an employment opportunity so that I can get back on my feet and take care of my family. Lord hear my prayer. Amen.

  1. I feel your pain

    I too, lost my position, due to a family member of my boss who now holds my position. My unemployment runs out next week… I have tried numerous job sites and haven’t gotten anything.. and this has been since August of last year.. I pray God blesses you with an opportunity to become gainfully employed and back on your feet soon.. I pray he keeps you healthy and positive. In God’s name, I ask him to send these blessings…. soon.

  2. strength and guidance through tough times

    Lord I come to you today as humble as I can be. Three months my husband has been without work because of racial discrimination. God I prayed for months before this for my husband a good job and he got it and now its gone. I prayed everyday as my husband with through these issues. It was so bad my husband was forced to quit right after thanksgiving. The company is denying everything he can’t get unemployment. The company is still being investigated. Our marriage is being tested. Our bills our piling up. Lord we need you. I know you don’t put no more on us than we can bare. We have more bills than we do money. Lord lead us and guide us. I ask you to touch our hearts lord. Lord touch our finances so we can be a blessing to our community. I’m so thankful for the things you have done already. I know there is no way we should be making it like we are now without you. Continue to lead and guide us. I feel as if we are at a stand still. Lord I know you will bring us out. At first I was mad a the person who did this to my husband. He didn’t care about how we were going to make it or anything. I had to come to a reality of that the person knew not what he done. I pray the person learns how to treat people.

  3. It is so..

    Good day,

    I too have been laid of since June 30th of 2011 AND returned our house to the bank. Financial and marital situations arouse as a result. However, I’m trying to stay strong through our Lord’s word and am also petitioning prayers for my financial and housing situation since the wife unexpectedly left me a few weeks ago while I was at church.

    I ask my Lord Jehovah Rapha and Jireh to heal and provide not only for me, but for you and everyone experiencing trials.

    In James 1:12, it is said, “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

    We lean on HIS words for comfort and strength at all times instead of our own misguided words and directions. He sends people and events to us to teach and strengthen us in knowing HIM.

    I love my wife but love HIM more even now; but I continue to pray for both our hearts to soften, learn each other, and reconcile.

    May our Lord grant you the peace, strength, courage, gentleness, faith, and love daily.

    I ask these things of Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Rapha, and the might name of Jesus,


  4. Praying for you

    I pray that you may find suitable employment and that your situation turns itself around.
    In Jesus Name, Amen

  5. Lord carry me in my time of financial need

    Please help me in my time of need. I know you will never leave me nor ever forsake me. Lord, I’m receiving UE and it’s being challenged by the UE division. They are making a decision of rather I can continue to receive it or terminate. Lord, the kind of work I do, a vehicle is necessary. My car broke down on me and I gave it away for parts.
    Lord, PLEASE let me continue to get my benefits, which belong to me anyway because of you, Lord just until I find work that doesn’t require a car and driving Amen.
