Loving heavenly father,You know all my worries and fears regarding this interview! You are a most loving heavenly father and You understand my innermost feelings!Yes Lord! I am so nervous thinking about the outcome of this interview. You know my limitations Lord, but Your word says that Your strength is enough in our times of weakness. I admit that I have no wisdom or knowledge of my own. But I have confidence that I can do every thing thorough Christ who strengths me. I do not know what is in store for me but I know that my future is in the hands of Lord of Lords, Who has made me. So Lord be with me and help me to find grace in the sight in the eyes of the concerned authorities. I need not be afraid of men because I have the Lord Almighty beside me. Please go before me and let me answer the questions boldly and intelligently. Please remove all the unwanted fears and worries and fill me with courage. Let me never be put to the shame.

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.
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!
Rebuking the enemy.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Prayer when Waiting:
Lord I will trust in you, acknowledge you and 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.
We serve a big God:
Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
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.
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.
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.

Last year, God moved us from Texas to Florida for my husband’s job. Now, a new opportunity could move us back again. This new position would mean a promotion for Mitch, with better hours and pay.
Although I have mixed feelings about another move, I support my husband. And I’m excited about the opportunities that might await us in Texas. But I also want to do God’s will, as does Mitch.
As Christian wives, we should be prayer warriors for our husbands. So today, I’m praying for my husband’s job interview, here on the blog. Feel free to use my prayer as a guide to help you pray for YOUR husband.

How to Pray for Your Husband’s Job Interview
How should you pray for your husband’s job interview or career? I once heard someone (on Grace to You) ask John MacArthur how to pray for their spouse. His answer? “Often and long!”
That’s how to pray for your husband – his work, his walk. Often and long. As for WHAT to pray: Speak to God from your heart. That’s what He wants to hear.
Now, here’s a prayer to inspire you.
A Prayer for Your Husband’s Job Interview
Mitch will interview for a new job this week. The position would draw on his experience but stretch him in new ways, too. Thank you for giving him this opportunity.
Thank you for caring about his needs and his desire for career advancement. And thank you for preparing him for retirement. I know you are with him this week, looking out for his best interest.
Before my husband meets the interview panel, prepare the meeting place and time. Set the tone for the discussion. And since first impressions matter, help Mitch be the man you created – authentic, natural, and relaxed. Let the interviewers see through any tension that exists.
Give my husband peace, Lord. Call to mind the wisdom and knowledge that’s already there.
And whatever the outcome, may the process bless Mitch and his interviewers.
I know you will work things out for good – for my husband’s benefit and for your glory (Romans 8:28).
I’ve seen you open many doors for Mitch. If this new opportunity is right for him, let nothing stand in the way of a job offer.
On the other hand, if this job is NOT your will, make it obvious to everyone involved in the interview process. Close the door and show Mitch the next step. He loves you, Lord, and he is willing to work wherever you lead him.
Bless my husband as he answers the tough questions this week, and bless the people who will conduct the interview. Give them wisdom to choose the right person for the job, and give Mitch peace to accept their decision.
