A Brief Prayer For Job Security

Dear God, I haven’t prayed to You in awhile, but I am coming to You now because I am worried about my job security. There’s some stuff going on at work that nobody will come out and actually talk about, but it has the vibe of layoffs. I can’t lose this job, Lord, because my family is very much dependent on the income and the benefits. I ask that You protect my job. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Prayer For Job Security at a New Job

God, I give You thanks for all you have done for me, especially with guiding me to this new job I have. It has literally been a God-send. I have been able to get into a place of my own and be able to pay my bills. I am truly grateful.

But now, I am worried. The company I work for did not have a good quarter for sales. I have always heard that it’s “last-in, first-out” when it comes to letting people go, and I was just hired. I really need job security, Lord. I’ve done my very best with everything they’ve given me to do, so I hope that counts for something.

I cannot afford to lose this job. Please help me not get let go. Please help me to keep my job. I don’t know what else to do, so I am turning to You, my Provider. I trust You to get me through this. I ask all of this through Jesus Christ, Amen.

Prayer For Job Security Close to Retirement

Dear God, what a ride I’ve had in my career. I almost can’t believe I have been working as long as I have. I am grateful for this work and all that I’ve learned over the past decades.

I am close to retirement and I want to get my full pension. However, I’ve been hearing rumors that some corporate downsizing is coming down the line. Given my tenure and salary, I am worried that I will be on the hook to be let go. I don’t want that.

After all I’ve done for this company, I don’t want to think that this will happen. Please give me a calmness of spirit and a peace in my mind about all of this. I greatly value the job security I have had and now it seems that is being pushed.

Please keep me financially and professionally safe on this one, Lord. I am so close to retirement that this would be devastating to me in a whole lot of ways. Hear my prayer through Jesus, Amen.

Prayer For Job Security For My Co-Workers

Father God, I have to turn in a report about whether or not any of my co-workers can be let go or not. I really detest having to do this, but I also recognize it’s part of my job. I ask You to give me wisdom and insight I do not have at the moment.

Right now, I don’t think I can really spare anyone from our team. Each person plays an integral part in getting projects completed on time and under budget. Help me to make a convincing case for each of my co-workers so that upper management will pass us over if or when it’s time to make cuts.

I don’t want to be dishonest in any way, Lord, but I truly don’t see how we could function effectively if anyone got let go. I pray I can play a part in helping my co-workers have job security during this difficult time. Give me the words I need to put in the report. I ask all of this in the strong name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Prayer For Job Security During Layoffs

Lord God, there are layoffs happening this week at my company and I am so incredibly grateful that I am not among those being laid off.

I have heartbroken for several of my co-workers who have received their notices and will be departing in a week or so. I’ve had good working relationships with each of them and I know they are facing difficult times. I pray for their finances and mental health.

Please help me be an encouraging presence this week with every person I encounter at my company. I want to be compassionate and empathetic. I’m not sure why I’ve still got my job but I am determined to work very hard to make sure I keep it in the future.

Thank you for keeping me safe career-wise and in my finances. I know it was Your hand surrounding me during this tumultuous experience. May I shine Your light in this dark season for so many. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Grateful Prayer For Job Security

Dear God, as I read the news and get reports from the internet about hiring practices and employment figures for my career field, I am worried for many of my colleagues in our industry.

There’s a lot of folks with my job title and job experience who are out of a job right now, or soon will be, if the reports are accurate. Processing all of this during the night led me to come to You in prayer this morning.

I want to give You my thanks for the job security I have at my company. We are doing well, profit-wise, we have plenty of business in the pipeline coming our way, and I have enough experience to be of value to the company. I am feeling much more encouraged, even as I lift this prayer to You.

Help me to be a resource or encouragement to anyone in my field who needs a reference or an uplifting word. I want to pour out the blessings You have given me to others, if I have the opportunity. Thank you for all You do for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Concluding Thoughts

Having a job is good and losing a job is bad. That’s as simple as it can get. So, if you have job security in your current position, talking to God about how grateful you are seems like a good step forward in your relationship with Him.

If your job security looks shaky or uncertain, then praying to God about it can bring you a measure of peace that you wouldn’t have otherwise. In this step of trust and vulnerability with God, you also will grow closer to Him.

“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you” ( Psalms 9.10, NIV).

The Psalmist is reminding us that seeking after God happens regardless of whether our life is going “good” or going “bad.” The greatness of God deserves our unending devotion. One way of living into that devotion is to pray regularly to God.
