Prayer for the Employed and the Unemployed


Prayer for the Employed

May you do what you love and love what you do
May it bless others and may it bless you.
May your completion of it bless others.
May you find joy in excellence and completion.
May your greatest desire be to serve.
May you make all the money you, your children and your grandchildren need.
May you teach others not only your craft, but also your love for it.
May you look forward to your weekdays with as much anticipation as you look forward to your weekends.
May you be recognized for your work, though that is never your reason for it.
May your work grow in creativity, expression, and fun.
May all your work relationships be a mutual blessing.
May you set an example, not only in your work, but also in your conduct.
May you realize that the work you do is one of the reasons God put you on this planet.
May you always be able to Get Started and Keep Going.
May you find God in this time and place.

Prayer for the Unemployed
May your period of unemployment last only as long as you want.
May your sadness end quickly.
May it be a time of rest and renewal.
May it be a time when you get more time with your loved ones.
May it be a time of creativity and new ideas.
May it be a time when you find not only work, but yourself.
May you have all the money you need during this time.
May you find and use opportunities for personal and professional growth.
May your past be full of lessons you can teach others.
May it be a time of reflection on the past.
May it be a time for gratitude for past jobs, that you had jobs you loved and you no longer have jobs you didn’t.
May it be a time of preparation for the future.
May you find work that expresses your Purpose.
May you always be able to Get Started and Keep Going.
May you find God in this time and place.
