Praying for the right job:

(Please share with someone who is seeking employment or a better job!)

Heavenly father, I ask that you provide a job suited for my needs this day. Lead me to a job that will accommodate me without hesitation. You are the rock on which I stand. I ask that You provide me with a job that is both stable and without shaky grounds.

Effective Prayers when seeking a job, employment

I ask that my talents, skills, abilities and education will be put into practical use. That way, I can have sufficient to pay my bills, and place bread on my table for myself and my family. May I also be able to give back what is due to You, Father.

Lord, You command blessings upon me in my barns and in all that I put my hands to do, and You will bless me in the land which You give me. Right now, I proclaim that I will receive many job opportunities that will allow me to perform at my best, remembering You in all that I do.

I speak that doors will be opened to me in every direction I turn, because Your light shines upon me. I decree and declare that unemployment is of the past and will be no more. In Jesus’s name I pray, Amen!

Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;” 

Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

Prayer – removing all barriers and blockage of gaining employment

Lord, for too long I have waited, and I am weary of being unemployed. Today, I cast my anxiety and worry unto You because You are the God that cares.

I am tired of being unwanted. Lord, let my race, gender, faith, family background and status be irrelevant to the employer. Let them choose me because Your goodwill is upon my life.

No more will I beg of bread but it will be given abundantly to me in the name of Jesus. Lord, Your word says that the same God who takes care of me will supply all my needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

This I believe, and I rebuke all racism, unfairness, injustice, favoritism and prejudice in the name of Jesus. I speak prosperity in my life.

I pray against the devil who came to kill steal and destroy. Satan has kept me back from my blessings for too long, and I say no more!

No more will his hands tamper with my mind. But I will trust in the Lord of heaven and earth for my breakthrough.

Lord, You have done it all on the cross for me and no longer will I suffer the trouble of unemployment, in Jesus name. Amen!

Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Prayer when applying, seeking employment

Heavenly father, I come before You seeking Your help in this time of desperate need. Lord, You said to ask and it shall be given to me, seek and I will find, knock and doors shall be opened for me. Lord, this day You know my needs, You know my struggles, You know the crisis I face each day and you are not a God of confusion but a God who hears and answers.

You are Jehovah Jireh, my provider and you will never let Your children go a day without bread. I plead for a breakthrough in my life and I trust in You because victory is mine, in Jesus name.

As I am about to apply for a job, I pray for your four favor upon these resumes. I pray that you would cover and shield it under your blood so that whoever reads this will acknowledge it, and not only acknowledge it but I will be hired.

Through You Lord, these applications will be highly considered and favor will be mine. Your blessing upon me this day so that wherever my applications go, it will not be rejected but will be acknowledged. My resumes will not be void but I will get many opportunities for You are the God who gives.

I plead your light upon these resumes and I receive your blessings and believe it is already done. In no other name but in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!

Praying when worried about finding work

We all need a job to survive. Without it, we feel worried because we cannot provide our basic needs. It is important to put your trust in God.

In times like these when the world is becoming so difficult to live in, all we can do is pray. Also, we know that children of God are highly favored, so why worry? Put your trust in God and not man.

Praying for a great job interview:

Jesus Christ who died for me. I bow before you begging for your guidance in my job interview. I pray for your protection and covering over me with your blood.

Lord, when I walk through that door, they will see your light shining in me. There will be no doubts in their mind that I am the desired person for the job. They will see only decency and ambition, honesty and integrity, determination and perseverance in me because you are the head of my life and I choose to do the right things.

Lord, help me to wear your amour so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Help me stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round my waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with my feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

In addition to all this, help me take up the shield of faith and the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God so that if I do these things, they have no choice but to take me because You are all they see.

I pray that I will speak only as you lead and nothing shall be on my own. Let my conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Lord, help me to say the right things at the right time pleasing you in every way. Lord I pray that my appearance, speech, attitude, and behavior be in a manner of humbleness and not greed.

Guide my steps today lord as I prepare for this interview in Jesus name.

2 Thessalonians 3:10 “For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: ‘The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.’”

Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters…”

Prayer when Waiting to be employed

Lord I will trust in you. I acknowledge you and I know that you are working out big, great plans for me. Your timing is the best timing and I will wait for the time when you bless me with a job.

I thank you, Jesus for answering my prayer. I believe the job is already waiting for me and it is only possible through you. Whatever is for me will be for me. It does not matter if I don’t see a way out right now. I know that I serve a big God that is working things out for me.

You are a God of Your word and, as I pray, I know that no prayer of mine will be unanswered.

Wherever you lead me I will follow Jesus. I thank you because my job will be soon coming in Jesus name. Amen.

Psalm 90:17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands.

Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

We serve a big God:

Jobs may be difficult to find in times like these. The world is getting harder to survive in. Many times there is unfair selection of employees and this causes us to become victims of unemployment.

Many times your status and appearance influences if they choose you or not. Racism and religion are factors that contribute to whether you get a job or not.

Enough is enough! No more my friends!

We serve a bigger God. A god that is bigger than any company/organization. He’s bigger than any employer. Our God is greater than those who want to bring you down.

He is a just God and not unfair. If you believe in Jesus Christ, then all things are possible.

Deuteronomy 10:17 For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and does not take a bribe.

  35. Sacha,I fully agree with you as our youth are really in need of direction and also stronger mind sets. I have been working with youth and my main purpose was to develop their mental status as I believe if the mind is strong, they can really achieve and over come alot..I would love to share ideas as well

    1. Hello Randal. Society has set up so much “rules” that are making these young ones stray away from God. For example, if a guy doesn’t drink or smoke at a certain age then he is considered “lame” and if a girl keeps herself until marriage she is considered silly and weak. I really hope one day this changes. I have this desire to help these youths who struggle with situations like those. As psychology confirms, adolescent age is the most critical stage of development and I believe targeting this age group would help make a holy set of people. I would love to hear your ideas.

  36. Very helpful in prayer. Please pray that I will be able to pass my Skype job interview scheduled tomorrow, September 2, 2017 at 8:30am Manila time & that I will be hired and gainfully employed at myvirtudesk.com. I believe & claim it right now In Jesus’s mighty Name, Amen.

    1. Amen. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. I will definitely keep you in prayer. All the best. The job is yours, in Jesus name

  37. Thank you Sacha. May you be Blessed through the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ.. These prayers give a lot of hope. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah, we magnify your name in your son Jesus Christ’s Holy name. Amen.

  38. Thank you Lord for the doors of opportunity of Employment that are opening for me right now. In Jesus Christ’s Holy name I pray. Amen and Amen.

  39. Simoy Hector-Morales

    Thank you for this prayer, it is needed at this time as I am applying for jobs. I believe that there is no recession in God’s kingdom and I am trusting him to open doors of opportunity for me according to His will. May God continue to bless you Sacha in your endeavors.
