Prayer For Work
Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone is out enjoying the last official day of summer vacation! Tomorrow means “back to labor” for me and thousands of school children all over the state of Michigan! I have a hunch the number of students as excited about starting a new year as I am is small! It’s been a beautiful, face paced summer but I’m ready to spend the days with my new batch of little lovelies and help them learn to read and fall in love with Jesus!
As I sit here excited about going back to work, I can’t help but think of all those who are unemployed or underemployed. I pray this labor day that they will be blessed with work that suits their skills and talents and makes them happy. I realize many readers have had their patience, faith and checkbooks tested to the extreme waiting for God to bless them with a good job. I pray God will respond quickly with the perfect position for all of those
searching. I came across this prayer the other day and I thought Labor Day would be the perfect time to share it. I have the names of several people I will begin praying for each morning starting today. I would like to invite everyone to join me in this prayer request and share the following prayer with anyone you may know searching for a job. It seems like the perfect reason to storm the gates of heaven.
Give me the Opportunity Lord... Dear God, I place my humble needs
before you: My need to meet my responsibilities in the world. My need to use my God-given talents and abilities. My need to fulfill my place here on earth. I pray for Your guidance now to show me the way to the perfect opportunity to do what I love, to do what I can do well and to serve You. Help me to walk in faith as You show me the way! Thank You, Lord. Amen!
A Seed To Plant: Write down the names of every person you know searching for work. Insert their names in the above prayer and offer it for their intention.
Blessings on your day!
