Prayer to Stay Employed When Termination Looms

Posted July 29, 2015 by Graceful Serendipity in Prayers for You / 0 Comments

One of the most frightening prospects is losing your employment due to either errors of your own or a miscommunication, which puts you in a negative light. You may be unfairly blamed for some action, which you are completely innocent of due to mismanagement. I understand. Losing a job, not knowing where your next paycheck will come from must be frightening.

There was a time I went almost a year and a half unemployed. Being in that situation does something to your psyche and self worth. You need not be alone.

You have God. You have the power of prayer. I created this prayer today after a loved one told me he was at risk of losing his job. His ultimate goal is for God’s will to be done, but you may wonder, “I can’t afford for His Will to be done in this situation.” I get you. I understand.

This prayer was written with you in mind to St. Joseph, so he may intercede on your behalf.

Prayer to Stay Employed When Termination Looms

St Joseph

Dearest St. Joseph,
Hear me during this great time of need.
You who worked so diligently, 
Know and understand the value of work.
I fear my job may be ripped away from me.
You know the reasons,
Be they small or large, 
The role I played
Has led me to this moment.
Without employment, 
I may not be able to provide
For myself, my family, and anyone else who counts on me. 
I implore you to ask Jesus, our savior, to save my employment, 
And should His Will direct me in another direction,
I ask for grace, understanding, and a swift new opportunity
For others depend on me 
May my petition to save my job be granted,
Or may God provide me 
With a new vision to become the person I am meant to be.
