Prayers for Vocations

Guidance For The Vocations Of Our Whole Family

Dear Lord Jesus, I do thank You for the family into which You have been pleased to place me. I thank You for each member of my family, every one a precious life in Your sight, each one such a joy to me.

Father, it seems that every one of us needs Your guidance in one way or another as we seek the future paths that we need to follow. And Lord, I pray that You would use us and the God-given gifts and talents that You have graciously bestowed on each of us, in the future work of ministry, to which we are being called to do.

Lord, I pray that You would take each one of our lives and use us to Your praise and glory. Though our paths may for a time go our separate ways, I pray that we may remain one in You and in union with one another. May we individually and as a family, consecrate all we do to Your service and praise.

Thank You, Father, that no matter where You lead us we are all Your children and will all one day stand in Your presence, for our home is not here but in heaven. But until that time may we be used in Your service. In Jesus' name I pray,


Prayer For Guidance In Choosing My Vocation

Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for bringing me to this point in my life and for always being there for me, even during those periods of my life when I have neglected You or ignored You or not paid attention to You as I ought. Forgive me my negligence and please listen and respond to my prayer. 

Lord, I have come to the point in my life when I need to make the important decision on what vocation to follow. Please give me guidance and wisdom as I seek to discover the path that would be the best for me to follow.

Lord, I don’t know which way to go or which path to follow, but I pray that in Your grace You would open up the door through which I should go. I am trusting my life into Your hands and pray that whatever vocation I finally follow, that You will be with me to lead and to guide. In Jesus' name I pray,


I Submit The Future Into Your Hands

Thank You, Father, that You know the plans that You have for me, plans for good and not for evil, and so I come to You today and pray that You would direct and govern the path that lies ahead, and show me the way that is best for me.

Lord, at times I feel overwhelmed and even confused by the many different vocations that are being offered at this time, and also I feel a little afraid, knowing that I have to make a vocational choice that will dictate the future path that I take.

Help me Lord, to make the right decision and prompt me in the way that I should go. You have said that if I wait on You and trust to Your leading and seek Your face, I will hear a voice behind me saying, “this is the walk in it…” So guide me I pray, to make the right choices, and to walk in the path that You have prepared for me.

Lord, I want to follow a vocation that will be honouring to Your name, and so I ask that in Your grace You would open up the doors of opportunity in areas that are best for me, and I will give YOU all the praise and all the glory. You have scheduled every day of my life, and I do not want to go astray from the best way that You have chosen.

So Lord, I place my future in Your hands and ask for Your perfect guidance. In Jesus' name I pray,


Prayer To Live For God In My Future Work

Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You for the gifts, graces and talents that You have given me and for the love and encouragement that I have received from my family, friends and my brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank You that I am Your child and that I am born again, in Christ, and a part of Your heavenly family.

In You grace, I pray that You would take me and use me in Your service, and help me to find a vocation where I can be used to glorify Your name.

Show me the way that You would have me to take and teach me the path along which You would lead me, and Lord, make me willing to follow You into the vocation of Your choice at the expense of my own, for in all things I want Your will to be done in my life.

Search my heart my Lord I pray, and if there are things in my life that need to be shed or discarded, bring them to my attention, for it is my deep desire to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight.

May my life from this point forward be pleasing to You in thought, word and deed, and may I die to self so that I may live to Christ, in Whose name I pray,


Mother’s Prayer For Her Children

Dear Lord Jesus, how I praise and thank You for each of my children and I pray that You would give me the wisdom and grace to bring them up in the fear and nurture of the Lord Jesus. May each one come to a full and free salvation in Jesus as their Saviour, and so Lord, I place each of my children into Your safe and secure hands.

Father, I ask that as they grow and develop into young adulthood, that I may teach them the things of God and that they may be quick to know You and to learn to love and trust You. And Lord, as I seek to bring up my children in the way that they should go, I ask You to develop in each one an interest in the vocation to which You will one day call them.

Give me wisdom as I teach and train them, and give them a desire to understand the area of study that will one day be the vocation that You have prepared for them.

May each of my children grow up know and love You and learn to listen to Your voice, and I pray that in Your grace You would gently lead them down the path that is best for them. In Jesus' name I pray,
