Prayer to Stay Focused and Have a Positive Attitude While Job Hunting:
Galatians 6:9 “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.“
I come to you today with a humble heart, seeking your guidance and support as I search for a new job. I know that you have a plan for me, and I trust in your timing and your wisdom.
Please help me to be patient as I wait for the right opportunity to come along. Give me the strength and the courage to persevere, even when things seem difficult or uncertain. 1 Peter 5:7 tells us “Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.” I am standing firm that you will keep my anxiety level low. Worry is a sign of lack of faith in what you are able to do. Lord, I have total faith in your power in might.
As I look for a new job, please help me to stay focused and to keep a positive attitude. Help me to stay true to my values and to always conduct myself with integrity.
Please open doors for me and guide me to the opportunities that are in line with your will for my life. Help me to be open to new possibilities and to be flexible in my approach.
As I go through the job search process, please help me to be mindful of others and to treat everyone with kindness and respect. Help me to be a good listener and to communicate clearly and effectively.
Above all, please help me to trust in you and to keep my eyes fixed on you as I navigate this journey.
I pray all of this in your holy name. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I come before you today seeking your guidance and help as I search for employment. I know that you have a plan for my life, and I trust in your provision. I’m asking that doors may be opened and you lead me to those opportunities. I sincerely want a job where my talents are best used and where I can freely practice my faith on a personal level.
Please open doors for me that align with your will and purpose for my life. Give me the strength and determination to pursue my goals, and the wisdom to make good decisions. I pray for the employer you have for me, that we may gel in spirit. Touch his/her heart as he prepares my position.
I pray that you would provide for my needs, and give me the opportunity to use my skills and talents to serve others. May I find fulfillment and joy in my work, and be a blessing to those around me.

Prayer For Guidance in Which Companies to Apply To:
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”
You know the desires of my heart and have been faithful through the years. As I begin my job search, I don’t want to settle for just any job. Please grant me the clarity and discernment to know which companies to apply to, and which positions align with my skills, values, and career goals.
Help me to focus my search on companies that share my values and are committed to creating a positive impact in the world. May I find work that is fulfilling and provides opportunities for growth and development. Lord, I desire a place of employment that values Christians and doesn’t force behavior that doesn’t align with your word. I speak Jesus over the place of employment that you have for me.
Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Grant me the confidence and courage to pursue positions that may seem challenging or out of my comfort zone, knowing that you will be with me every step of the way.

In Jesus’ precious name, amen.
Matthew 7:7-11 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”
Prayer Before a Job Interview:
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
I need your help; I am anxious about my upcoming job interview. I repent for being fearful so I am taking it to you and putting it all in your hands. Please grant me the strength and confidence to present myself in the best possible light, to showcase my skills, and to express my passion for the work that I am seeking. Just as you led Moses and gave him the words to say, I ask that you do the same for me.
Deuteronomy 18:18 “I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.”
Please help me to overcome any anxiety or nervousness that I may feel, and to be fully present in the moment during the interview. May I speak with clarity, confidence, and conviction, and may my words convey my enthusiasm for the opportunity before me. Lord, I really want this job and am standing on your word–giving me the desires of my heart.
I pray you are with the interviewer too. Please guide the interviewer to ask questions that will allow me to showcase my strengths and abilities, and to demonstrate my fit for the position. Grant me favor with the interviewer. May the person and I be like minded on the job requirements and my skills to fill the position.
I ask that you be with me every step of the way, providing me with the insight and wisdom to respond to questions with thoughtfulness and authenticity. May I be a true representation of myself, while also showing the best version of myself.
Lord, I will start proclaiming the job as mine. I give you all the glory!

Prayer to Receive a Job Offer With the Salary I’m Asking:
2 Corinthians 9:8 “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”
Your word is very clear on how to ask in prayer. Today I am specific in my prayer. As I await the outcome of my job interview, I ask for your divine ability in securing the job offer that I desire, with the salary that I am asking for. I am confident that you are able.
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…”
I am confident in my abilities and qualifications for this position, and I believe that it would be a great opportunity for me to grow both personally and professionally. You have blessed me with the skills needed to be a success in this position. You have also planted the word in my heart, which makes me the perfect person for this job.
I ask that you guide the hiring managers to see my value and potential and to offer me the job with the salary that I am asking for. May they recognize the worth of my skills, experience, and contributions. Lord, you have blessed me financially through the years. I have been faithful with my resources. With an increase in salary, I will be able to pour more into your kingdom.
Please help me to remain patient and trust in your timing, knowing that you have a plan for me and that everything happens for a reason.
Thank you for your constant love and support. I trust in your divine guidance and know that whatever the outcome may be, it is for my highest good.

Prayer That My Resume Stands Out Among the Applicants:
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
I am asking for your favor when it comes to prospective employers. I’ve prayed over my resume and ask that your anointing falls on it as it is delivered to the decision-makers in various companies. Please make the readers of my resume see it is special and give me the opportunity for an interview. Set me apart with your favor.
Please bless my resume with the skills, experiences, and qualifications that the employer is looking for. Let my resume catch their attention and make a lasting impression on them. May the employer see that my past work history has prepared me for the job opening.
Help me to remain positive, patient, and persistent during my job search. Give me the wisdom to know which opportunities are right for me and the courage to pursue them. I trust that you have a plan for me, and I ask that you lead me towards the right path.
Father, I am excited that you are faithful to bring this to pass. I am committed to letting my light shine before fellow employees. I will use this new adventure to advance the work of the church. All my faith is in Jesus. Amen.

I praise you for your faithfulness to me through the years. It is a step of faith that I feel it is time to change my career path and go into a field that has more opportunities for growth and advancement. My faith is totally in you to find a place of employment where I can grow in my abilities and talents. I come to you today seeking guidance and clarity during this career change in my life. I am grateful for the opportunities that have led me to this point, but now I seek your wisdom to help me make the right decisions for my future.
Lord, I pray that you remove any doubts I have in myself. This is a scary time in leaving a field where I have been comfortable and secure. Just as the Israelites were afraid of the unknown, I feel a little of the same as I go into a new job market. I stand on your word that you will guide, lead, and protect me on this journey just as you did when you took the Israelites out of Egypt. I have prayed about this career move and have total peace in my decision, a peace that could only come from you.
I ask that as I go through the job search process, my former employers give me favorable recommendations. Father, you know I have worked hard in all my previous jobs and have strived to be a shining example of a Christian in the marketplace. I pray that any letters of reference that I receive reflect my true work habits and integrity.
Proverbs 10:9 “Whoever walks in integrity walks securely…”
As I pray today, I am confident that you are already preparing a job for me in my desired field. Lord, I ask that you are blessing the company and making it profitable. Prepare the hearts of my future co-workers. Make way for our relationships to be such that will glorify your name.
Above all, I pray for your peace and guidance as I navigate this transition in my life. I trust that you will lead me to where I am meant to be, and I am grateful for your love and support every step of the way.
