Has become to me
A full time job
My past accomplishments
My endless education
My work experience
My professional acquaintance
With key people in the work place
God Almighty give me some grace
To endure and continue pursuing
Meaningful employment without complaining
Because I get rejected because of my skin color,
My age, my looks, my limitations, lack of conformity
My authenticity, humanity, and bold individuality
Shall I cease being a human and just be a conformist
Sell my soul for money and do whatever comes along
Or believe for the best, be selective, and stand strong?
Yes, I have to pay the bills and can’t be a ding dong
For one who doesn’t care for his own family is an infidel
Or even worse according to the Bible, but help me God
I’m drowning in applications and this employment process
Arise and give me a breakthrough loving heavenly Father
For your Name sake answer my prayer and don’t delay
For years of tireless job hunting has left me most weary
As king David in distress prayed, “Send now prosperity”
Enough of my dire poverty, inconsistency, and calamity
Bring on the blessings God and use my talents and ability
To glorify thee and build your people and kingdom in the earth
Bring forth in me professionally and occupationally a new birth.
Open the windows of heaven over me and move hearts favorably
Direct me inwardly by your Spirit so I know where to labor specifically
Whom to entreat professionally and where to work purposefully
Help dear God, hearken to the cry of your child crying out to thee.
