Prayer For Finding A Job
Lord, I trust in you as I look for new work. Lead me to the right job. I rest in your goodness and give you all I have. Help me as I seek to find, apply and interview for each position. You know the skills I have, and the things that I enjoy. Lord, I ask for more than a wage. Lead me to a position where I can really feel valued, respected and part of a team. Please watch over me and my family in this waiting time. Help me to be confident in knowing your will. Open the right doors for me, please come and direct my path. I put my trust in you completely. Amen.
Lord, I am coming to you today with a heavy heart filled with regret over the past, and anxiety for the future. I am out of work, and my finances are in deep trouble. I have made many mistakes. Help me to forgive myself, and others, so that I may make amends with all concerned.
Grant me peace of mind, so I can fill my life with your goodness and grace. Guide me toward a good job where I may fulfill my needs as a better and wiser person. Thank you Lord, for listening to me and helping me today. Life is not always easy, but I will strive to remember that You are always there to help me As you are right in this moment. Thank you!
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,
Dear God, I thank you that your word says that you know what I need before I ask. I am seeking employment and trusting you to place me in the best position. Not only to meet my financial needs but to contribute to my success in future endeavors.
I ask that this position be in alignment with the schedule I need so that I may remain faithful in all other personal and professional commitments. I know that you have a job for me, and I will trust you in getting me there.
Dear God, help me to see the great and undeniable things about myself that are only true to me. Help me to showcase myself in a way that highlights who I am as an individual, but also relates why I would be an important addition to their company.
May your peace be settled in me so that I can convey my thoughts clearly and professionally during this upcoming job interview.
Help me to answer all questions in a way that is authentic, yet honest and true to who I am and what I have to offer. May I leave a lasting, unforgettable impression knowing that you are always present with me.
Heavenly Father, I come before You in Jesus' name.
Father God, thank You for hearing my prayer. Thank You that Your Word says Before you call, I will answer, and so You have answered me even before I finish this prayer. Thank You for knowing everything that concerns me, and for providing all my needs richly. I know I can depend on You, Father.
Father, I lift up my job situation to You. Lord, I ask right now in Jesus' name that You would make a way for me to have a new job, a better job. Show me which steps to take.
Lord, if I am to change careers, then please show me what career to pursue. If I am to stay in the same career, give me peace about that. Either way, Lord, I ask right now that You would bring me into a job where the people are good to work with; where they are nice to me and others. Provide a job where I am paid well, where my work schedule would bless and not harm my family.
Father God, I ask in Jesus' name that You would highlight in my mind where I should apply for new jobs. Give me the motivation and inspiration I need to apply, and shine Your light of favor on me there. As I apply, give me the words to say and help me fill out the application perfectly.
Father, I ask also that You would give the interviews that You want me to havewith the right interviewers too. Make it so that, when I walk into the room to apply or interview, the people there would know that I am the one to hire. Be the answer of my tongue, and help me to speak the words during the interview and application process that You want me to speak.
Father, I ask You to provide a good salary, good retirement benefits, good medical and dental insurance, disability insurance, paid time off, paid vacations, and paid sick leave. Provide for the on-the-job training that I need. I ask also for Christian co-workers in the workplace; and for kind, compassionate, generous, and patient supervisors.
Father God, give me wisdom, strength and power. Reveal Yourself as the Glory and Lifter of my head. In the Name of Jesus I declare that the old things are past and the new things have come. Bring me out of the old place, and into this new place of abundance. Put me in the right job, and deliver me from the wrong jobs.
Thank You, Father. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer, and that I have received everything I'm asking You for. I give You all the glory.
In Jesus' name, amen.
Merciful Father, thank you that you are the source of everything good in my life. As I look for a new job I pray that you would move powerfully in my life, providing opportunities and guidance for me. Put the right options in front of me, let me fulfill your plans and purposes through my work. Your kindness and care for me has been present throughout my life and I ask for your kindness in this job search. Your love conquers all obstacles and provides life in all its fullness. May I rest in that love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Lord Jesus Christ, you are the God from whom all blessings flow. Please bless me with new opportunities for work. I am made in your image and I want to use the talents you have given me in a useful and effective way. Lead me to the right opportunity at this time. I am grateful for all the blessings you have given throughout my life so far and look to the future with faith in your continued goodness. Increase my faith that I may rely on you during this period of change. In your mighty and powerful name, Amen.
