You’re not alone. I have been in that same boat and it can be really hard. But I want to encourage you to NOT lose hope! God can help you through this season. Either by helping you find a new job, a new career, or by giving you the grace to stay where you are.
The goal is to seek the Lord, make your request, and pursue His will for your life. He cares for you and wants to help you. One way we can go about this is by praying. There is power when we pray.
I’ll share some prayers for a new job that you can pray to help you find the right path for you. Prayer is a powerful tool, and God can do amazing things when we put our trust in Him. So don’t give up; keep praying and have faith that God will guide you to where He wants you to be.

So, take these prayers and make them your own. Add specifics like desires, sitatutions, names, and more. This will help make these prayers personal between you and God.
