Short Prayer For My Son To Find A Job

Dear God, I pray for my son and his job search.  He is finding it harder than he thought to find the kind of job he wants.  I don’t want him to get discouraged, but I also know he has to do this on his own so he can grow in his self-confidence.  Help him to stick with it, and help me to be supportive of him, however, that needs to be.  In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Prayer For Son Looking For His First Job

Dear Lord, my middle son is now out looking for his first job.  As he is still a teenager, he will be limited in how much he can work per week, but I hope he can find a place he will enjoy going to work.

I pray for his confidence in this process.  I am grateful that he wants to do this and is not afraid to begin the search.  I’ve told him how proud I am and that I can help him if he wants it.  But Lord, I get the sense that he wants to do this on his own.  Help me to not hover or watch over his shoulder about all of this job search.

I pray for the people he will speak with, that he be received with favor.  I pray that when he gets a job interview, he can speak clearly and with confidence.  Since he is just starting out, he doesn’t really have any specific experience, but I pray that they will see that he is earnest and personable.

Help him find this first job, Lord.  In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.

Prayer For Son To Keep Looking For A Job

God, I am worried about my son.  He was laid off and now is looking for a job, but he is not finding anything.  He has applied to more than 100 places and hasn’t even gotten one callback for an interview, or even a screening call.

I can tell he is discouraged when I talk with him by phone.  I pray that he won’t give up.  I pray that he sees this process as part of the journey of faith with you.  I pray that he will be able to keep a positive mindset each day as he fills out applications and researches companies.

I ask that you will give someone in his network a nudge to give him a lead or put in a good word for him at their company.  He needs something positive to shift his feeling of momentum.  I don’t want him to get stuck, but I have read the news about how challenging it is for job-seekers out there.

Please continue to provide for my son in the midst of all of this.  In the powerful name of Jesus, Christ, Amen.

Final Thoughts

As Christians, we believe that God has a plan for our lives. This includes our careers. When we are looking for a job, we can trust that God is leading us to the right place.  When it is your son, your focus may be sharpened a bit.

There are a few things you can pass on to your son as he looks for a job in a way that is pleasing to God. First, he should pray about it.  Let him know you are praying too.  Ask God to lead him to a job that is a good fit for his skills and interests, and that will allow him to use his gifts to serve others.

Second, remind him to be honest and ethical in his job search. He doesn’t need to lie on his resume or in interviews. He can also be fair and respectful to his potential employers.

Finally, help your son remember that his new job, and his work, is a gift from God.  He can approach his job search with a positive attitude and a willingness to serve.

“Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near” (Isaiah 55.6, NASB).

When we look for a job from a Christian perspective, we can trust that God will lead us to a job that is a blessing to us and to others.  Praying to God is calling upon God for what you need help with, or on behalf of your son or daughter.

  1. Please pray for my son to find work. He is a beautiful wood floor installer and finisher. His company has fell on hard times because of high interest rates. God bless

  2. My son was laid off as a software engineer and has applied to so many places with a few interviews. He met with developers from a local, family owned business right before Christmas and today meets with the CEO of the company. The company has been in business for 70 years and they are morally strong with christian values. I pray he receives a job offer from them.
