Whether you’re miserable at your current job or are unemployed and searching, your first reaction may be to try and take control of the situation. When we try to control the situation ourselves, we tend to get stressed easily and may begin to feel down when we don’t see the results we want. What we need to do is to take our impatience, our longing for blessing, our desire to support loved ones, and our hurt from the workplace and put it at the feet of the only One who is in control—Jesus, our sovereign Savior and King.
Psalm 90:17 (ESV) 17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!
Lord, I trust in you as I look for new work. Lead me to the right job. I rest in your goodness and give you all I have. Help me as I seek to find, apply and interview for each position. You know the skills I have, and the things that I enjoy. Lord, I ask for more than a wage. Lead me to a position where I can really feel valued, respected and part of a team. Please watch over me and my family in this waiting time. Help me to be confident in knowing your will. Open the right doors for me, please come and direct my path. I put my trust in you completely. Amen.
Prayer For New Job Opportunities
Dear heavenly Father, You are my Saviour and Lord and You are the one Who has scheduled each day of my life from the very beginning. You are the Author and Finisher of my faith and You are my Provider and my Protector.. and Father, You also know the dear desires of my heart and the need in my life of a new job opportunity and direction.
I pray that in Your goodness and grace You would broaden the horizons of my career, expand the boundaries of my life and open up a brand new job opportunity for me.. in the place of Your choosing., which will enable me to step out in a new direction in life – so that I may forget the things that are behind and push on to new horizons and a renewed perspective.
Thank You that You have directed my path to this point in life and I ask that You would lead and guide in all things. Help me never to forget that all that I am and all that I have has come from You, and that You are my sufficiency in all things – thank You in Jesus name,
Prayers For Starting A New Job
Thank You Lord for this new job and I am excited about starting it, and pray that You would give me the grace to settle in well and adapt to the different environment and the new challenges I will be facing.
I thank You so much for the wonderful way that You opened up this job opportunity and answered my prayers in such a gracious and amazing way – and thank You that You will be with me, every step of the way.
Help me to be well prepared both physically and mentally and Lord I pray that You would use me to be a blessing to others – but I also know that going to a new job as a professing Christian may also have some difficulties. Give me grace to face any confrontations or prejudice. Praise Your holy name and may You be exalted in my new work, in Jesus name,
Prayer For Those Who Have Lost Their Job
Loving Lord, we are living in a time of much need and economic hardship, and there are many today who are facing the shock of having lost their job, with little hope of securing a new position.
Father, this causes such deep emotional pressure and severe financial hardship at any time, but when the economic climate is so depressed, it has such a serious knock on effect on relationship with loved ones. Look down with pity I pray, on all that are having to come to terms with joblessness. Look on these people with compassion and in Your mercy, I pray that You will provide for their needs and secure for each one a new position.
Lord, I know that this can happen to any of us and none are exempt from such a devastating loss, but You have promised to supply all the needs of Your children, and I ask that in Your mercy You will supply all that is needful.
Bring good out of evil Lord, and may the loss of a job be the thing that draws each one into the arms of their Saviour. Save and supply the needs of all who are facing a future without a job I pray,
