Prayer for Guidance at Work

Dear Lord, every day of my life I work very hard to support myself and my family.  I make sure to do my best in all tasks that I undertake.  I value my career.  I put such a high importance on the quality of my work.  I feel very blessed to be where I am now.  I put so much time and effort in so far.  Although I love my work, lately I’ve been feeling unmotivated.  These days I have been feeling very apprehensive.  I keep asking myself if this is the right job for me.  I am unhappy about the everyday situations I am faced with at work.  I feel like they don’t give me enough recognition for the amount of work I put in.  As you know, I am usually not the type of person who complains a lot.  I believe that you help us fulfill our destiny, and I need guidance for work.  Lord, I am humbly asking that you remind me why I have chosen this career in the first place so that I may continue on this path.  I love my family very much and I only want the best for them.  I accepted this job because it will let me provide for the needs of my family.  I have accepted it because I am dedicated to my profession.  I also want to provide a positive change in people’s lives.  Please guide me so that I may have the courage to stay strong amidst these challenging circumstances.


Prayers for Clarity

Lord Jesus Christ, my mind is very cloudy at the moment.  I do not feel like the future is as clear as it usually is, and these decisions can have either bad or good consequences.  Right now I feel so lost.  I honestly don’t know which one to choose.  My heart is troubled because I know that my choices wouldn’t only affect my life, but it may affect others as well.  Lord, you have said that you will not leave us in times of trouble.  I wholeheartedly believe that you will never abandon me.  I trust that you will never forsake your people.  In these desperate times, please provide me your wisdom.  Bless me with the right knowledge so that I could understand which choice to make.  Please heal my troubled heart.  Clear my foggy mind of all the worries I am currently facing.  I know there is no problem that you cannot solve.  These situations are an essential part of life so that we may put more faith in you through trust and guidance.  I will become stronger spiritually, emotionally, and mentally after this situation has resolved itself.  Lord Jesus, you have died on the cross to save us from our sins.  You loved the world so much that you were willing to sacrifice yourself for your people.  I come to you because I know that you made that sacrifice that day to help me and all my brothers and sisters.  Please help me see this choice clearly.


But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,

Acts 5:19

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

Joel 2:28

The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord.
