7 Prayers for Hiring the Most Valuable Employees

Prayer to Conduct Thorough and Fair Interviews for Prospective Employees:

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

Heavenly Father, I pray for guidance and wisdom as I search for new employees to join our team. Help me find the right individuals who will be a good fit for our company and help us achieve our goals and objectives.

Please give me the insight and the discernment to identify the best candidates, and to make wise and informed decisions. Help me to avoid making hasty or misguided choices, and to find the right people to join our team. Lord, you tell us in Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” You know the plans for my business and me. With that knowledge, please help me in hiring the right person for each position so that your plans may be fulfilled.

Lord, remove any prejudices or preconceivable opinions I have before each interview. Be with me as I conduct each interview, seeing each candidate as someone who can possibly be an asset to our company.

I pray that you will bless our company with hardworking and dedicated employees who will help us to succeed and thrive.

Grant me the patience and understanding to conduct thorough and fair interviews and to give all candidates a fair chance to demonstrate their skills and abilities. Help me make decisions based on merit and potential, not biases or preconceived notions.

I ask that you bless our new employees with good health, happiness, and success in their work and that they will be a valuable and integral part of our team. Amen.

John 14:14 “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

Prayer for God to Send the Best Applicants for Jobs in My Company:

Lord, I praise you for my successful business. I give you all the glory for what we have accomplished. I am asking that you go before me to send the right employees to help my business succeed and grow. Open my eyes to select the ones who will be a perfect match.

Prayer to Hire an Employee With the Right Heart:

Isaiah 30:21 “And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.”

Heavenly Father,

I am seeking you in selecting a new employee. My experience has shown that selecting the person based on job-related technical skills does not always work out. I am learning to look at the “soft skills” also, which are hard to determine in an interview. Because of this, I pray for guidance as I search for the right person to fill an important role in my company. I ask that You lead me to someone who not only has the necessary skills and experiences, but also has a heart that is aligned with Your will.

7 Prayers for Hiring the Most Valuable Employees


May the person I hire have a heart filled with compassion, integrity, and a strong work ethic. I truly desire the person to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. May they positively influence those around them, and may they be dedicated to serving others and making a difference in the lives of those they work with. This person needs to be teachable and have a team mindset.

May the Holy Spirit guide me in making the right decision and give me the courage to trust Your plan for my company and the individual I seek to hire.

I ask all of this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer to Know When to Hire From Within the Company:

Psalms 25:9 “He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.”

Lord, I have asked you to lead me to a candidate with a teachable spirit. I don’t want to ask anything of a prospective employee that I don’t have to. So I am humbly seeking you to fill an upcoming position. I want you to teach me your ways more every day.

I pray that You will guide me in knowing when it is appropriate to bring someone new on board and when it would be better to promote from within. I have a position to fill and am assessing this choice. I know sometimes it is good to bring in someone who can provide ideas we haven’t thought of. Sometimes these people bring in talents and knowledge from a previous job that we could implement in our business. You have shown me hiring from within is a good motivator for present employees. “Climbing the ladder” is deep in the hearts of many of our employees.

Help me recognize my current employees’ gifts and strengths, and give me the discernment to know which individuals would be the best fit for new roles and responsibilities. If you lead me to hire from within, please go before me in handling any jealousy that may arise within the workplace. I have strived to create a culture where each employee celebrates the others’ accomplishments. If this is the direction you show me to go, I am standing on your Word that you guide me in handling any issues that may arise.

May Your will be done in all of my hiring decisions, and may I seek to honor You in all things. Give me the grace to make decisions with fairness and justice and the courage to trust Your plan for my company and for each individual I work with.

In Your precious name, I pray. Amen.

John 5:30 “I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me.”

Prayer to Hire a Person With Innovative Ideas:

Proverbs 22:29 “Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.”

Heavenly Father,

Lord, my company needs fresh ideas. I don’t want to re-invent my business focus but broaden how we conduct business. I come to you today asking that you bring the right candidate to my company so that we can continue to be relevant in the marketplace and increase our business. I pray for guidance while searching for the right person to join our team. I ask that You lead me to someone who has the necessary skills and experience, a passion for innovation, and a creative mind.

May the person I hire bring fresh ideas and a new perspective to my company, and may they be dedicated to helping us grow and succeed. Help me recognize and nurture their unique talents, and may they positively influence those around them. I would also ask that they have leadership skills as we build a strong Leadership Team.

If that person is already within the company, and I just overlooked him/her, please show me. If I haven’t given each employee the opportunity to share unique ideas, put that on my heart. I want to continue to build a culture of transparency and opportunity.

Grant me the wisdom to make the right decision, and give me the courage to trust Your plan for my company and the individual I seek to hire.

I ask all of this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Ephesians 3:20 “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us…”

Prayer That My Company Will Be Attractive to the Right People:

Dear Lord,

Today there are many job seekers with many options. My desire and prayer to you is that my company stands out as a desirable place for employment. I pray that my company would be a place that attracts the right individuals to apply for job openings. May we be known as an organization that values our employees, provides a positive work environment, and is dedicated to making a positive impact in our industry and community.

Help us to create a culture of collaboration, respect, and growth, and may we be a place where employees can use their talents and abilities to their fullest potential.

I pray that You would bless our recruitment efforts and guide us in finding the right individuals to join our team. May we make wise hiring decisions that align with Your will and that benefit both our company and our employees.

In Your precious name, I pray. Amen.

Proverbs 3:4 “So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.”

Prayer for Sending Multiple Qualified Applicants for Our Job Opening:

Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.”

Dear God,

You know the job market is tight right now. I am asking favor in filling this position I have open. I humbly ask for your guidance and blessings as I search for the right candidate for this job opening. I pray for an abundance of qualified applicants to choose from, each possessing the skills and qualities that would make them a great fit for the role.

Grant me the wisdom to make a fair and just decision and bless the chosen candidate with the knowledge, strength, and determination to excel in this position. I pray the candidate that you lead me to select from this pool of qualified individuals be blessed in this position and bless our company. Petitioning in Your holy Name,

Amen.
