Prayer For A New Job Starting Today

Heavenly Father, I want to lift up the many men and women who are seeking jobs in this very difficult economic climate and especially those that I know personally, who are finding such difficulty is securing a job.

Lord You are the One Who can know every sparrow that falls to the ground and You are the One Who knows the various needs of every job seeker. .. so open the doors of opportunity to those who are in need we pray, and particularly for those who have families to support, and who may be getting discouraged and depressed.

Look down in mercy on the many job seekers and may many use this difficulty that they are facing to be the cause of looking to You in faith trusting in You in a way that they have never done before. Be gracious we pray, in Jesus name,


Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You today in real need of employment and am getting concerned as I have been out of work for some time, with few opportunities of securing any job.

You know the responsibilities I have, and I ask Lord that You would guide me to the right job. I know that there are many people who are in the same situation as I am in, and at times Lord I get quite discouraged. Please help me Lord not to be anxious, but to know that You are working all things according to Your good plan. Lord, at times I feel I am not part of Your plan, and yet I know what the Word tells us, that You will work all things together for good to those that love You, even my jobless position.

Help me to trust You in all things and not to fret or become too discouraged. I know we are to live by faith and not by sight. Help me Lord to trust in You. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Dear God,
You know my needs. You know my desire for a job, for work I enjoy doing, for the next step in my career to present itself. I pray that you would guide me as I continue on this job hunting journey. May I focus first on your will for my life, putting your desires and your plan above my own wishes and wants. Open doors to new opportunities that you desire for me, and equip me with the skills, knowledge, and wisdom I need to take steps forward in this process. As I craft my resume, write cover letters, submit my applications, connect with new companies and potential employers, and go on interviews, give me the words to speak and the courage to share who I am and what I can do. Give me confidence that can only come from you, and give me humility too. I trust you, Lord-- my life is in your hands. Your will be done. Thank you for being near to me every step of the way and thank you for always providing for my every need. May this all be for your glory.In your name,

God, you are so generous. You provided, just as you promised. You said, I will supply all your needs out of my vast store of wealth in heaven. I believed this, and now I've seen you prove it, first hand. I asked for a job and you gave one! I am so grateful. These are hard time for many people. I don't take this gift lightly. I believe I will be a blessing to my new employer; they certainly will be a blessing to me and my family. In I'm honored with this trust! Thank you! Thank you!

Now I ask for wisdom. I have employment; I need strength and endurance to DO the job I've been assigned. Honestly, today I feel over my head. I have so much to learn, so many people to get to know, so many policies to master, so many new paths to walk, and seemingly all at the same time. The stress of no-work has been replaced by the stress of too-much-work. I need your help.

You have promised, in James 1, that I can ask for wisdom and you will give it. This is for me! Please grant me wisdom, today. I'm not smart enough to handle my new duties. I need insight, emotional strength, guidance with time management, empathy in relationships, creativity to solve challenges, and most of all joy when I feel overwhelmed by the expectations others are placing on me, and expectations I'm placing on myself.

Thank you for providing this new job. Now please give me what all I need to master it. I ask knowing that you hear and care. You have given provision; you won't leave me alone to do it alone. Even as I pray this, I believe you are already answering my request. Thank you for wisdom!

I pray this in Jesus' great name!

You are my strength Jesus. Help me to carry the responsibilities with grace. Help me to lift each worry or burden to You. Help me to defend truth, justice and righteousness in my practice. You are my strength Jesus. Thank you.

Dear Father,

Thank you for your goodness, mercies and your love. You have been a wonderful father and provider to me. I am so grateful for all that you have done for me. My words cannot fully express how deeply appreciative I am for your continuous blessings in my life.

Father, I am thankful for you answering my prayer. Your hand of favour has blessed me with a new job. Your word in the book of Psalm states that promotion cometh neither from the east nor the west nor from the south. So, I give you thanks for your provision and your favour over my life.

Father, today is my first day at this new job. Help me oh lord to learn everything that is required of me effectively and speedily. Grant me favour with my colleagues and manager. Calm my nerves and fears, dear Father.Give me faith and courage so that I can be a great ambassador for you. Help me to say what you want me to. Help me to act in a manner that is pleasing to you.
Remember the person who is doing the orientation and training. Touch his/her speech so that principles and processes will be explained in a clear and detailed manner.

Father you are in control. I place my trust and faith in you. You have seen me through in times past and by your strong right hand, I will excel at this new chapter.

Just be with me as I go. What I am asking for myself, don't fail to grant this same blessing to another brother or sister who may be starting a new job today.

In Jesus Name,

Dear Lord, Today, I offer you myself. Come breathe your life Into my working day. Cause me to awake, to embrace the moment, And to go in Your name. Today, thank you that I can run without fear, Serve with kindness, And walk with You in this great adventure. Amen.

Dear Father, Thank you that you journey with me. You have been in the process of my learning, searching and applying for this post. Come Lord, fill my mind with confidence as I begin this new chapter in my life. When I feel uncertain about decisions in this new work, may I lean on you and your wisdom to guide me. Where I feel I lack confidence and self-belief, may your eternal strength empower me. Lord, come fill me with passion and inspiration for the tasks that lie ahead of me, and may I bring your love and truth to others through the work that I do now. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
