Prayer for Those Who are Unemployed


I currently know a lot of people looking for a job. I hope that this blessing will help you as you search for what you need.

O God of the vineyard,
you call us all to productive labor,
to employ our gifts and talents for you.
We pray for those who are unemployed.
Strengthen them in this difficult hour,
uplift their spirits,
and grant them a place among your laborers
until all be employed for the common good,
and we share fully in our work
of praising you with heart and mind and soul forever. Amen.
