7 Prayers for My Husband to Find Work

Pinterest Hidden Image

The Bible teaches us that men are supposed to be the head of our households. They are meant to be hard workers who provide for their families. However, we live in a society that is constantly trying to redefine our households and individual family roles.

It is almost impossible for most families to live on a single-family income. In a lot of cases, the cost of childcare far exceeds the income a second person would be making. This leaves, most commonly mothers, at home depending solely on their husbands to find and secure a stable source of income.

The one thing we can do for our husbands is pray for them. Matthew 7:7 teaches us to “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” We can encourage our husbands to go after their work goals, but we also need to keep them grounded in seeking out God’s goal for them.

No matter if you’re living off of one income, or your husband just needs some encouragement, pray for him. Even though the job market isn’t always for men, he will feel the love you have for him through your words, and the love Jesus has for him in his heart. If you have any specific requests about prayers for your husband to find work leave them in the comments below.

Our family is in desperate need of stability. I am begging you to provide that stability for us Father. Show my husband work that will provide him with a stable income, giving us the ability to breath.

We are fully committed to walking down whatever path you choose next for my husband.

Father, I ask that you give my husband strength. I know you only have one path in mind for him, but I ask that you help him take the wrong path’s rejection with grace and ease. Help him be strong in the face of rejection, remind him it is because those places are not where you want him to be.

Lord, my husband means so much to me I ask that you fill his body with your never-ending love as we begin this next chapter. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Prayer for My Husband to Feel His Worth at Work

Father, my husband has been ending his day defeated. He comes to me looking like he has worked harder with every passing day. His job is not recognizing him in the way he needs for his hard work, Lord. I ask that you open the eyes of those around him to see all the hard work he has done.

I know there are so many people who work hard at my husband’s place of work. I know his job may not stand out as much when he is doing a great job.

Remind those around him that not seeing him every day is the goal. Help them recall him when everything goes right in the day. Allow his boss to see and recognize that everything is going right because he is being successful in his work.

Thank you for blessing us with a steady paycheck Father, we know we owe all of our success to you. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

Concluding Thoughts

My children have a CD that sings bible verses and this one struck me today on my morning drive. When we are looking towards the Lord, it is important to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;” Proverbs 3:5.

If we ask our Lord for things, but then do not relinquish our control over the situation, we do not leave room for him to guide us in the right direction. Remember to let go and trust that he will provide for your family. That doesn’t mean do nothing, it just means to leave your heart open for the unthinkable.

You never know where work will be provided for your husband, even if it is not the easiest solution to the problem presented, there may be a lesson waiting there from God. All you need is one good interview- whether it’s in person or even online.

  1. Lord, I ask that you help him find fulfilling work after our move cross country. We were disappointed by him not getting into the Union and he currently has a job he interviewed for. The manager over the department he applied for loves him but after interviewing with 8 people there has been a hold up but upper management. If this is not the job for him, please line us up with a better opportunity. If this is the right job and path for him, please put it in their hearts that he needs an income and not to delay yet another week. Thank you for providing for us and encouraging our extended family to give generously to us. Thank you for the food and shelter we have. All of the glory, honor and praise goes to you Father. Thank you that you have given me peace where there might be fear. In Jesus name, Amen.

    1. My husband had a unfortunate event 03/2013 which ended up a criminal Felony. He has never been in trouble the incident and never after. 5 1/2 years later we’re trying to get him a job. His name is Curtis. He finally got a job offer today but they requested a background check. We need favor. He’s not the person with a Felony conviction. He’s a husband married to 12 years. Father of 3. He loves the Lord. This is the 1st offer after tons of interviews. I pray God opens a door because we need a miracle.

  2. Asking for God to enlarge our territory. My husband has his master degree and a master certificate in the field of his desire, kinesiology. And though he is currently employed in his field of work the pay is not livable for our growing family. I am asking God to open doors where he is compensated properly and isn’t forced to work 2 jobs to make ends meet. I am asking for favor with potential employees. I am asking God to lead and direct my husband on the path he should take as he seeks employment. And that he walks confidently into his interviews and leaves without any reservations. I pray that with his receiving a job that financially provides it will also free up his time so that he will better be able to participate in the daily life of our children. Amen.

    I just happened upon this website and I am so grateful I did. I just said some of the prayers…more than once. My husband has been without a steady job for over 3 1/2 years. He has had a couple of temporary jobs, but that is about it. We struggle to make ends meet. I have a full time job, but it doesn’t pay enough to pay all of our bills. I would love prayer for my husband. Please pray that he would find favor in the eyes of the different employers who are interviewing and hiring. Thank you so much!

  11. My husband has been unemployed for almost 2 years and we have just been told to vacate our home in two weeks. It’s weighing heavily on our family and our marriage. His confidence has decreased and he seems helpless. He’s a great father and his kids are looking to him as the head of our household. Please pray for my family and that his efforts in applying for jobs is fruitful.

  12. I applied for a job, for my husband. He knows, I warned him if he didn’t apply for it by a date that I would make him a resume and send it. That is what I did. If he gets this job, not only would he love it, but, I would be able to be a stay at home mom. We would be able to afford a larger house. I am also praying that we find a home we are comfortable being in the next 10 years, with an additional dwelling unit for my parents to live in half the year. This is a giant transitional part of all of our lives.
