Do you want to pray for your auto mechanic?  Are you an auto mechanic and need to pray?

These seven direct prayers for auto mechanics can be of help to you.  For whatever reason you find yourself on this prayer page for mechanics, you can use any of these prayers to communicate with God about your situation.  You can modify the prayers, as needed, so that they fit your circumstances and need for prayer.

For people who have a car, it is a valuable asset and vital to how they live their lives.  So, knowing a good auto mechanic is very important.  Since it is so crucial to trust the repair and maintenance of your vehicle to a mechanic, have you ever considered praying for an auto mechanic?

Or, if you are one who works on cars for a living, have you considered praying about the cars you work on, and the people who drive them?  What you do affects their lives and safety, so why not bring God into your workday to guide you and help you?

The work of your hands makes cars and trucks function properly, as they were designed to function.  The work of your hands corrects broken parts and motors so the vehicle drives safely and doesn’t fall apart on the road.  Consider the Apostle Paul’s encouragement to re-frame how you view what you do for a living:

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,  since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. (Colossians 3.23-24, NIV).

If you are not an auto mechanic and you are looking for one, or are nervous about whether you can trust the one you are going to, you may want to calm your anxiety by praying to God about the situation.  You can pray to God about anything, any time.  There’s nothing too small, or too big, to bring to God in prayer, even a concern about who fixes your vehicle.

You may want to take the mindset of the Psalmist as you talk to God about your auto mechanic.  You may want to ask God to establish the work of their hands as they work on your car or truck.

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
    establish the work of our hands for us—
    yes, establish the work of our hands” (Psalm 90.17, NIV).

Prayer can change things in your life, sometimes just because bringing a concern to God can change how you are feeling about the situation, can alter your viewpoint.  So, we invite you to add these prayers to your communication with God.  You can also share your own prayer requests or comments at the bottom of this article.

Prayer For Auto Mechanics

Lord, I pray for the auto mechanics in our city.  They often get ignored or treated with disrespect because of some shysters out there.  I pray that you keep all of them safe on their job sites and in their shops.

I pray you give them joy in their work, as what they do helps keep people safe on the road.  I pray that you provide the financial resources for each one of them to provide for themselves and their families.  I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Prayer For Auto Mechanics To Be Safe

Dear God, I pray for the auto mechanics out there to be safe.  Whether it’s lifting something heavy, or being underneath a car on a lift, I pray that nothing bad happens to them as they work.

May you keep them attentive to their surroundings. I pray they double check everything before they get underneath a vehicle.  I pray for their tools to function properly and without error so mishaps occur.

I ask that you keep them safe as they drive to and from their jobs. I pray that they get the rest they need and the time they enjoy with their families.  They have important jobs and I pray that you keep them safe, through Jesus I pray, Amen.

Prayer For Auto Mechanics To Be Thorough

Lord God, I am praying to you, asking that the mechanic working on my car is thorough in their work.  I haven’t used this auto repair shop before but it came recommended from a friend, so here I am.

I need my car for my job so it is important my car work each day.  I pray that you help the person working on my car right now to be able to focus and see the problem quickly.  I pray that the parts are available.  I pray that they repair my car as if their own mother would be driving it and she needs to be safe on the road.  Help to not overlook anything.

I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer For My Auto Mechanic

God, I pray for my auto mechanic, Mike.  He works so hard each day and I can see that he loves his job.  I want to give you thanks for guiding me to him.  I’ve had bad experiences with mechanics in the past, so to find one that is knowledgeable and trustworthy is such a blessing!

I pray for Mike and for his business, that you would prosper him and bring him new customers.  I pray for his family as he works long hours to make sure each car and customer is taken care of well.  I pray that others will recognize his good work and tell him, like I did yesterday.

I pray that you keep Mike and all of his workers safe each day as they lift heavy tires and step in and out under cars on lifts.  Guide them with clear thinking and accumulated experience.  I pray all of this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer For Auto Mechanic Spouse

Lord, I pray for my husband as he goes off to work today.  He is an auto mechanic at a shop here in town and he’s been having a rough time.  The shop is down one mechanic so everyone, including my husband, has had to work extra hours to pick up the slack.

He’s worn out when he gets home each night.  I pray that he gets deep and renewing sleep each night.  I pray for him today, that he is alert and that you direct his mind to the problem at hand with each car he works on.  Please keep him safe on his drive in, during his shift, and on his drive home.

Please help the shop find another competent mechanic, or bring one to them, and soon.  The extra pay is nice and all, but even the owner knows he can’t keep up this kind of pace with everyone.  Thank you that they have a bustling business and plenty of customers, but please help my husband in his job today.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer For Auto Mechanic To Find a Job

God, I need to find a job.  I had a good job as an auto mechanic but the shop I was working at closed down because the owner retired and there was no one to take over the business.  I have plenty of experience and am certified and all that, but it’s harder than I thought to find a mechanic job somewhat close to where I live.

I’ve been asking everyone I know to help and they have, and I appreciate it.  Most of the leads are way too far away to make it financially feasible and I’m struggling to get an interview somewhere closeby.  Please guide my steps to a new shop where I can use my skills to help make people’s cars run properly.  I like what I do and I miss doing my job each day.

My severance pay wasn’t much and it’s running out soon, Lord.  Please help me find a job that’s a good fit.  In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Prayer To Start Training As An Auto Mechanic

Lord Jesus, I finally discovered what I want to do for a job!  I’ve always loved cars and fiddling around with them and now I am about to start official training to become an auto mechanic!  I’m so excited!

I thank you for helping me find the right training program as well as the way to pay for all of the schooling.  It’s a commitment of time but I am ready to do it and eager to begin.

I pray for my instructors and fellow students that they teach well and that we learn well.  I pray way ahead of when I’ll be finishing–that you help me find a good mechanic’s job when I graduate.  Thank you for this opportunity, God, Amen!

Concluding Thoughts

You probably don’t think about auto mechanics until your car is not working properly, or you need your oil changed.  And when you need someone to work on your car, it becomes an issue of vital importance, because you rely on your car so much. Just hiring a professional to work on your home, it’s a stressful and personal experience.

If you are a mechanic then you know your work matters, and it is God’s provision into your life, as the wise author of Proverbs reminds us:

All hard work brings a profit,
    but mere talk leads only to poverty” (Proverbs 14.23, NIV).

The prayers above are for both the mechanic and the person who needs a mechanic.  Whichever one you are, use these prayers to unburden yourself and grow closer to God.  May praying these prayers bring a measure of peace into your day!

“You can no more trust Jesus and not intend to obey him than you could trust your auto mechanic and not intend to follow their advice. If you don’t intend to follow their advice, you simply don’t trust them. Period.”    – Dallas Willard
