Prayers for Parents

A Mother’s Prayer for an Unemployed Adult Child  (a prayer for breakthrough in finding a new job)

Lord, I make this heart-felt prayer in trust as N.____ looks for new work.                                    

You know all the circumstances of his/her life. Lead N.____to the right job.

Help N.___ as he/she seeks to find, apply and interview for each position.    You know the skills he/she has and the things he/she enjoys.

Lord, I ask for more than a wage. Lead N.___ to a position where he/she can really feel valued, respected and part of a team.   Please watch over him/her and our family in this waiting time.

Help N.____ to grow in confidence. Open the right doors for him/her and please direct his/her path.

Thank you for the unique gifts and talents that you have given N. ___.

Even before he/she was born, your hand was at work in the very fabric of N. ___ being and through his/her adult years you have stood by him/her in good times and in times of need and crisis. I reach out to you now O God and ask that you would open N. ___ heart to search and find the right kind of work.

Protect his/her mind, cover his/her thinking, that N. ___ mind might be alert to your leading and his/her spirit sensitive to your promptings.

I pray that you would open a door to a job which brings fulfilment and happiness.

A job which not only provides for his/her needs, but enables him/her to give freely to the needs of others.

A job which extends the reach of your work, your kingdom and your will on this earth today.

I ask all this in the powerful name of Jesus, my loving saviour and constant companion.
