Seeking

Lord,
May your words be like a lamp that lights my way.
May your love be like a compass that gives me direction.
May your truth be like a signpost bringing clarity.
May your peace be like a measure that guides my decisions.
May your hope be like a flag that declares I walk with you.
May your words be in my mind,
Your love guide my feet,
Your truth be a sign,
Your peace be a measure,
And your hope be a flag,
As I walk close to you at this time.

Amen.

Father, take me to the place
where I am saved from my pride and arrogance
and Christ's humility is centre stage,
where I'm lifting up clean hands
and a pure heart to You.

Take me to the place
where I'm no longer looking at the mountains I face
but looking down upon them,
where I can see clearly and my decisions are flooded
with Your light, truth and justice.

Father,
I bend my knee and receive Your truth
I open my ears to receive Your counsel
I open my heart to receive Your eternal wisdom.
Amen.

Lord, thank you that you have good things in store for those who love you, for those who have been called according to your purpose.
Thank you for the gifts and talents that you have given me.
Even before I was born your hand was at work in the very fabric of my being and through my adult years you have stood by me and provided for me in good times and in times of need and crisis.

I reach out you now O God and ask that you would lead me to the right job.
Open my heart as I search for the right kind of work.
Protect my mind, cover my thinking,
That my mind might be alert to your leading and my spirit sensitive to your promptings.
I pray that you would open a door to a job which brings fulfillment and happiness.
A job which not only provides for my needs but enables me 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 Friend,

Amen.

Dear Father

Thank you for the wonderful skill and gifs

You've so freely given to me

I surrender all I am to You.

 

Come and guide my path as I look for new work.

May I always serve You and others

In the new adventures that await me.

Amen

Lord, I trust in you as I look for new work.
Lead me to the right job.
I rest in your goodness and give you all I have.
Help me as I seek to find, apply and interview for each position.
You know the skills I have, and the things that I enjoy.
Lord, I ask for more than a wage.
Lead me to a position where I can really feel valued, respected and part of a team.
Please watch over me and my family in this waiting time.
Help me to be confident in knowing your will.
Open the right doors for me, please come and direct my path.
I put my trust in you completely.

Amen.

Lord, I feel confused about life at the moment
I'm not sure I'm in the right place
Thank you that wherever I am
You have gone before
You turn the night into day
Sadness in joy
And mourning into dancing
Help me to live in this place
And through my serving
Bring daylight, laughter and rejoicing
Amen

Almighty God our heavenly Father,

you declare your glory and show forth your handiwork in the heavens and in the earth:

Deliver us in our various occupations from the service of self alone,

that we may do the work you give us to do in truth and beauty and for the common good;

for the sake of him who came among us as one who serves,

your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.
