Employment prayer for those who have lost a job

by Andrew White
(Palm Springs, Florida )

Lord, I am coming to you today with a heavy heart
Filled with regret over the past, and anxiety for the future.

I am not out of work but a major cut in pay, and my finances are in deep trouble.

I have made many mistakes. Help me to forgive myself, and others, so that I may make amends with all concerned.

Grant me peace of mind, so I can fill my life with your goodness and grace. Guide me toward a good job where I may fulfill my needs as a better and wiser person.

Thank you Lord, for listening to me and helping me today. Life is not always easy, but I will strive to remember that You are always there to help me
As you are right in this moment.

Thank you!

Don't look back beyond asking for forgiveness
by: Anonymous

We have all made mistakes, or perhaps at the time they did not seem that way. Perhaps we walked away from an opportunity, made [or did not make] and investment, or moved to get a "better" [higher paying]job and years later we find ourselves in a far away place and longing for home...regrets "if only I had done such and such" only bring us remorse and leads to a pit of despair. I have been out of work for 6 months now and have played this over and over; rather than look back, I can only ask for forgiveness and for God to lead us to a better place [going back is just not an option]. There have been times where I have acted selfishly and without thought of the consequences--I know God can forgive me and I have to learn to accept that. Please let me not fall into that pit of despair and know that this is not the end, not to give up, that there is a better place, and that He will lead us there. Amen.
