A Prayer for Persons Looking for Employment or Those in Need of a Financial Breakthrough
Psalm 48, Psalm 112
Reflections of the Heart:
Sometimes things happen in life that are beyond our control. It is during these trying times that we can rejoice in the knowledge that our God will never leave us nor forsake us. Our relationship with Him allows us to walk through life’s challenges knowing that through the blood of Christ, we are overcomers. Therefore, cast your cares upon Him for He truly does care for you.
Father, holy and righteous is Your Name. You are a great God, and a great King, above all other gods. You are our God; and we are the people of our pasture, and the sheep of Your hand. Lord, You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth. You are Jehovah Jireh, our provider and we place our trust in You. Thank You for providing employment to Your children. Thanks for sustaining those who are in need of a financial breakthrough. Thank You for helping them daily. Thank You, Father, for being our source and our supply.
Father, it is Your will that Your children live healthy, productive, happy, and balanced lives. We believe that as those persons who are seeking employment seek Your face; You will hear them and deliver them from all their fears. We confess that they will not let mercy and truth get away from them. They will wear them like a necklace; and write them deep within their hearts. Then they will find favor with both You and men, and they will gain a good reputation. Lord, we declare that they will trust in You with all their hearts; and not depend on their own understanding. They will seek Your will in all that they do, and we believe that You will direct their paths. Father, as they trust You and do good, they will live safely in the land and prosper. In Jesus’ Name, we command the doors of employment to open for our unemployed. We declare that as they receive employment, they will work with enthusiasm, as though they are working for You rather than for man. We decree that those persons who are in need of a financial breakthrough will be still in Your presence and wait patiently for You to act. As they do this, they will not worry about food and clothing, for if You clothe the grass of the field, how much more will You provide for them.
I will take the following steps in seeking employment today by:
Father, help those who are unemployed and those who need a financial breakthrough to trust You. Please provide jobs, education and promotions for them. Remind them that because they trust in You, they will not lack any good thing. Father, some need a miracle right now. Please help them. Holy Spirit, for those who have a poor work ethic, help them to improve. Please help those who have mismanaged their funds, to live disciplined lives.
Father, forgive those people who demonstrate a poor work ethic. Forgive them for not being on time, leaving early, and wasting time. Forgive those who have not paid their tithes and offerings (consistently), or spent their money unnecessarily. Forgive those who have operated in selfish ambitions, greed, lust, pride, arrogance, and rebellion. Lord, remind them of people they need to forgive; and help them to forgive.
Lead them not into temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.
We worship You, O King, Creator of heaven and earth! To whom shall we compare Your great and marvelous works? Who is Your equal? Lord, You are high above all nations. Your glory is above the heavens. Yours is the Kingdom, power, and glory forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
