O Lord,

You are the author of my life. Thank you for all you have given me, taught me, and shaped in me so far. I give you this next chapter and ask you would lead me through it.
Lord, come open up new opportunities, stretch my mind, enlarge my heart. I give myself into your loving hands and trust that as I push out into different areas that you would open the right doors for me. Fill me with hope and confidence as I go for job interviews and walk into new places. Thank you that I always carry within me your life, your truth, your hope and your love. May those around me encounter something of you in all I do.

Prayer for starting a new job


I am excited and also nervous as I begin this new job.
Please watch over me, anoint my working life,
So that I move in your strength and not my own.
I lay down before you all the training, skills and dreams I have.
Help me to be successful in all I do.
Come lead me each day.
May I be aware of your presence with me,
A friend always beside me,
And an advisor at my side.
Fill my heart with hope and joy,
So that I may feel enthusiastic and energised as I work.
Fill my actions with integrity and wisdom,
That others may see something of your spirit in me.

I trust in you.
I walk with you.
I love you.

Thank you for this new opportunity.
