On this page are four prayers for those currently seeking new employment. To begin with, there is a simple prayer asking for God's guidance when making decisions about applying for jobs. The second prayer is a prayer to get a job that you have applied for, and asks for a successful application that leads to an interview. If you are currently preparing for an interview, the third prayer asks for God's hand to be in this process. Further down this page there is also a prayer for a job offer and some inspiring bible verses to reflect on about work.

Prayer to Get a Job

Dear Father God, thank you that you are with me in all circumstances and in every situation. As I pray to get a job, I ask that you guide my thoughts and my plans. I offer you all that I am. I lay my life before you; my talents and skills and ask that you would lead me to work that I would find fulfilling and rewarding. As I apply for job interviews, I pray that they would be received favourably, and you would bless those who read my applications. Thank you that you have provided for me when life has been hard. I trust in you now in this time of uncertainty and change. Amen.

Prayer for a Successful Job Application
A prayer to say after applying for a job and before a possible interview

Dear Father,

I lay my hopes at your feet. I lay down my skills, my qualifications, my experience and my training. As I send my application for this job I ask for your blessing on it, that your Holy Spirit would travel with it and open the doors to a successful interview.

Thank you.

Dear Lord,

I am not alone, for you are with me. As I go to this interview I choose to place my hand in yours. I acknowledge your love for me and connect with your promises for my life. Father, I ask for courage and faith to answer all the questions well. Thank you now that my mind can rest in your peace.

Father, I lay before you this new job opportunity. I give you everything I have done so far in applying for the post and ask that you would bless this application. May your light and truth bring great wisdom to those who decide the outcome.

quotes from the bible about work

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people."

(Colossians 3:23, GNT)

"Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense."

(Proverbs 12:11, NIV)

But now, this is what the Lord says- he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine."

(Isaiah 43:1, NIV)
