Beloved... Many of us are facing challenges with employment, career or business issues - be it joblessness, a transition between jobs/contracts, under-employment, termination, demotion, redundancies, lay-offs, troubles on the job, living from pay check to pay check... many self-employed are feeling like they are toiling in vain unable to see the outcome of their labor. Beloved, cast all your cares, fears, desires, troubles, lack, worries, desperations, issues... on the LORD, and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.
Today, Lord, we are casting all our anxieties regarding JOBLESSNESS onto You, because You care for us. Many of Your children are struggling with the curse of JOBLESSNESS. In faith, we commit our works to overcoming this situation whether it is to finding a great job so that we may help others or the ability to build/expand a great business so that we may provide many job opportunities for others. Lord, use us as a channel of Your blessings to bless others. We are confident that as we surrender to God our plans, it will be established, for His Glory, in Jesus name.
==== Prayer and Declarations ====
Heavenly Father, I pray for your divine intervention into my situation of joblessness. Lord, I seek your Sovereignty, Power, Love, Faithfulness, Grace, Mercy, Favor, and Honor to break this curse of joblessness from me and my life, in Jesus name. Lord, fight this battle on my behalf, go before me and make the rough path smooth; and Lord, set me free and hastily provide for me. Lord, the lack of the ability to work, to earn and to provide for even basic necessities for my children, my household, and my family as well as to bless others and contribute to the building of the Kingdom of God, is causing me anxieties, fears, and worries; ruining my self-esteem, value, and worth; as a Child of God. Lord, the failed job searches, the toiling, the lack, the desperation to provide, the difficulty, the hardship, the disappointments... have all caused me to become overwhelmed, discouraged, weak, and weary. Lord, You are the God of All Comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we are comforted by God. Lord, comfort me during this joblessness affliction; strengthen me, give the perseverance in the pursuit of Your superabundant breakthrough. Forgive me, Lord, I confess of my weakness as I know You told me not to worry and be afraid that instead to trust You.
Lord, Your grace, Your favor, loving-kindness, and mercy are enough for me, sufficient against any danger and enables me to bear the trouble manfully; for Your strength and power are made perfect, fulfilled, completed and show themselves most effective in my weakness. Therefore, I will be all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ, the Messiah, may rest, yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell upon me!
Today, I am taking my eyes off my joblessness situation, I shall no longer magnify it but shall glorify The LORD. I am putting my trust, focus, and dependency on You, My God - My Provider, The LORD of the Breakthrough, My Shepherd, The Only Wise God, My Way-Maker, My Day-Breaker, My Redeemer, My Helper, My Heavenly Father... O Lord, God, You are so much BIGGER!
O Lord, you promise that You will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; do not forsake me, the works of Your hands. Lord, all my failed efforts and the negative outcomes of changing this joblessness situation have left me feeling like I am toiling in vain. It is vain for me to rise up early, to retire late, to eat the bread of painful labors; But Lord, You promise to give to me, Your beloved, even in my sleep. Jesus, let the beauty, delightfulness, and favor of the Lord, my God, be upon me; confirm and establish the work of my hands—yes, the work of my hands, confirm and establish it! Lord, I am trusting in You with all your heart and leaning not on my own understanding; in all my ways I am submitting to You, and Lord, You promised that will make my paths straight. Lord, lead me to the opportunities, the destiny helpers, position me to be at the right place at the right time to receive the deliverance that you have already provided, prepared and perfected for me. Lord, give me the patience and the strength to trust and wait in Your timing for Your provision to grant me the supernatural breakthrough and the superabundant blessings that you have predestined and ordained just for me. Lord, I am confident that as I ask You for a breakthrough, it will be given to me; as I seek You for a breakthrough, that I will find one; when I knock on the door of breakthroughs, it must be opened to me. No forces of darkness can stop what God has blessed to prosper, in Jesus name.
Lord, I know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. For this reason, I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, with whom there is no change or shifting shadow. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
Jesus, I pray that you will command a superabundant blessing upon me, in my household, my family, my business/career, my finances, ministries and in all that I undertake; and You will bless me with supernatural opportunities and multiple sources of income, which the Lord, my Father God, shall give me. I shall earnestly remember, the Lord, my God, for it is He who gives me the power, ability, strength, wisdom, favor, honor, and grace to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to my fathers, as it is this day. Your right hand, O LORD, is majestic in power, Your right hand, O LORD, shatters the enemy, break the curse of joblessness and the yoke of poverty from my life; to recover and release blessings, breakthroughs, benefits, wealth, and prosperity to me, in Jesus name.
And God is able to make all grace abound to me so that I always having all sufficiency in everything, I may have an abundance for every good deed. Therefore, in every interview, every application, every contract negotiation, and opportunities; I shall shine brighter and smarter than all my competition. I am fully assured that what God had promised, He is able also to perform. Lord, I believe that You will throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so many blessings upon me that there will not be room enough to store it. The LORD, My God will rebuke the devourer for me so that it will not destroy the works of my hands. All the nations will see and call me blessed, for I shall be a pleasant, fruitful, bountiful, and delightful land. Lord, I believe that You have placed before me an open door that no one can shut. I boldly, faithfully and confidently walk through this open door and I shall be overwhelmingly surprised; as no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no human mind has conceived -- the things God has prepared for me, as I love Him -- superabundant benefits, supernatural increases in income, influence, and impact. I decree and declare that The LORD of the Breakthrough shall break the chains of joblessness to release the fountains of overflowing revenue streams; catapulting me to new levels and dimensions with unlimited career advancements, in Jesus name. I shall experience the supernatural provision of new jobs, new employments opportunities, promotions, new business ventures, new contracts, and new clients, in Jesus name... I shall be a display of the splendor of the Lord's Glory!
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that I ask or think, according to the power that works in me, to Him be Glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
