Day One - Pray for those seeking work

Today is the first day in the 40 Days of Prayer challenge put forth by my church. I have been called to pass this challenge on to my readers. Each day of lent, I will post a person or group of people to pray for. If you feel called, feel free to share this with others so we can send as many prayers as possible to Him for the next 40 days!

40 Days of Prayer Button

Today, we are called to pray for a group that is, unfortunately, close to many of our hearts in the hard economic times we live in. As you sit down for your time of prayer with Jesus today, please remember to pray for those who are currently seeking work.

I will be praying not only that they find work but that their families will remain steadfast and know the Lord will provide for them. I know from our experience that times of financial hardship can easily lead to a crumbling faith when you don't know where the money for bills will come from. If you are currently in this position and would like us to pray for you and your family, please do not hesitate to leave a comment with as much or as little information as you would like to share!

If you are participating, feel free to join the Linky below so we can visit throughout the 40 days to offer encouragement to one another!


  1. This is a great idea. I'm going to add this to my blog and encourage my readers to join in. Have a blessed day.
    In His Service,

  2. I have my blog post here!!

  3. Thank you to both of you for joining in! I pray that as we continue the 40 days, our prayer group will continue to grow!

  4. This is wonderful. I will most definitely join when I can.

  5. Oh, this is beautiful! I will be sure to pray for those looking for work.

  6. I like this idea! I live in one of the worst states for unemployment (15% last I saw), so this one is so needed.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the next 39 days of prayer!
