Clarity with The Lord : Proverbs 3:5-8, James 4:6, Proverbs 20:7.

Proverbs 3:5-8 (ESV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
It will be healing to your flesh[a]
    and refreshment[b] to your bones.

James 4:6

Jesus, a Source of Guidance: Jeremiah 29:11-131 Peter 5:6-9 (ESV).

Jeremiah 29:11-13

11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[a] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.

Peter 5:6-9

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith

 

Absolute and all knowing God,
Nothing is hidden from Your sight.
In the prescience since the beginning.
God, our Father, My son is seeking your divine help and guidance as he looks for suitable employment. He is grateful for the job he has now but needs your knowledge to direct him to another job to serve you. He needs your wisdom to guide his footsteps along the right path, and to lead him to find the proper things to say and do in this quest. He wishes to use the gifts and talents you have given him, but he needs the opportunity to do so with gainful employment that is appreciated. Do not abandon him, dear Father, in this search, but rather grant him this favor he seeks so that he may return to you with praise and thanksgiving for your gracious assistance. Grant this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
