Psalm 20:4
May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.

With the God of possibility, have faith that your hearts desire for a profitable job shall be granted.

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!

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.

By Billy Graham

Q: How do I know God is listening to me when I pray? To be honest, I’ve about given up on prayer because it doesn’t seem to make any difference. Has God turned His back on me?
A: No! God has not turned His back on you. He loves you and wants you to bring your burdens and cares to Him in prayer. The Bible says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6

Only two things can keep God from giving us what we ask for in our prayers. The first is sin – and the reason is because sin erects a barrier between us and God. Until that barrier is torn down, God can’t answer our prayers. The Bible says, “The Lord is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous.” Proverbs 15:29

This is why the first step you need to take is to turn by faith to Jesus Christ and ask Him to forgive your sins and come into your life. When we do that, the barrier of sin is removed – and God hears our prayers.

The second thing that keeps God from giving us what we ask for is if we are seeking something that isn’t His will. God loves us and knows what is best for us – and because of this, He will not give us anything that isn’t His will. The Bible says, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” 1 John 5:14

Make sure of your commitment to Christ. Then pray about everything, and wait for Him to answer. The Bible says, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.” Psalm 37:7

Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God is not on the job. Instead, be glad you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. I Peter 4:12, The Message

Our God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. I Corinthians 10:13

We remember, in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, and are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come to you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So
don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed. James 1:2-4, The Message

…The race is not always to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor satisfaction to the wise. Nor riches to the smart, Nor grace to the learned. Sooner or later bad luck hits us all. Ecclesiastes 9:11

You must work and not be lazy: Proverbs 6: 6-11

Suffering: Yes, you will suffer in life a short time. But after that, God will make everything right. He will make you strong. He will support you and keep you from falling. I Peter 5:10

Pray: If one of you is having troubles, he should pray. James 5:13

The Lord is your #1 mentor for success: Always turn to the Lord for help in everything you do and you will be successful. Proverbs 16:3

Be diligent for success: Continue to ask, and God will give to you. Continue to search, and you will find. Continue to knock, and the door will be open for you… Matthew 7:7-8

Seek mentors advice and network: If a person does not get enough advice, then his plan fails. But a person will succeed if he listens to the things wise people tell him.
Proverbs 15:22

Prepare and plan for success: Careful plans can lead to profit. But if you are not careful, and you do things too quickly, then you will become poor. Proverbs 21:5

Be honest in everything you say or write. Proverbs 6:16-17

Our success at Empowering Job Seekers is measured best when a job seeker says, “When I came here, the only thing that mattered to me was getting a job; now I realize that getting my mind in a positive direction, and my life right with the Lord, were the most important things; getting a job is now a secondary benefit – still a very important one – but definitely now secondary.”

Looking for and finding a good job can be very daunting in today’s economy for individuals of all walks of life. I recently found myself unemployed and looking for a new job, and I have to share that it was a very difficult and lengthy process. Even though I had a good resume, several academic degrees, and a lot of experience, it took me quite a while to find the great job that I have now. The Lord provided for my every need, though, and the following top 7 Bible verses about finding a job encouraged and sustained me in my search.

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.”

First of all, it is crucial to recognize that we need the Lord’s favor to rest on us and to establish the work of our hands. We need him to guide us to the right position, and place us where we can be of utmost service to his Kingdom. He also knows where we will be fulfilled and reach our highest potential. Praying and asking for his guidance and blessing in our job search will pay off with the highest dividends.

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

Finding the right employment requires us to trust in the Lord with all of our hearts and not lean on our own wisdom. I have to confess that I tried running ahead of God several times in my recent job search, and I even began two separate part-time jobs in my feeble attempts to find work.  I was miserable in both of those jobs, though, and I quickly came to realize my lack of trust in God’s timing and provision. The solution to my impatience and lack of faith is explained precisely in Proverbs 3:6, as Solomon shares, “in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Once I submitted to God’s direction, he was able to lead me where I needed to go.

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.”

I love this verse, because it is a very encouraging one. It reminds us that if we ask God for a job, that he will answer our request. If we seek the right job, we will find it. And if we knock on the employment door, it will be opened to us. God wants us to be productive members of society and the Kingdom, so he will provide for his children.

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.”

Waiting on the Lord’s timing can be very challenging, and impatience often seems to rule my life. However, this verse keeps everything in proper perspective. God does work all things together for good for those who love him—in other words, for us. We have been called his children according to his purpose, so he will provide everything we need when we need it. This includes finding the right job for our skills, talents, and anointing level at the right time.

I Corinthians 4:12 “We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;”

Working is not a bad word, as God calls us to work hard with our own hands. It is something that he calls us all to do—whether we work at home or at an office, or whether we are sending out resumes or filling out applications—we need to do it as unto the Lord. We also need to bless and be a blessing no matter what else is going on around us even when we are cursed or persecuted.

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

Finding the right job may seem like hard work, especially when we try to do it in our own strength. The important thing, though, is to give whatever we do all our effort. Whether it is working or looking for employment, we need to do it as if we are working for the Lord. He is our ultimate boss, and we should want to please him most of all.

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.’”

psalms for getting a job

My final top verse about finding a job is this one, because it can be easy to want to give up. Good jobs are very hard to find these days, and it might seem simple to just stop trying to find one at all. After sending out over 100 resumes, I can say that I was tempted to give up on my employment search many times. However, I knew that I needed to keep searching for the position that God was preparing for me. This verse shows us the consequence of not working, and it is definitely one that as Christians we should avoid.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, finding a job in today’s economy can be a very difficult undertaking. It might be tempting to give up, but God wants us to be contributing members of society and follow his leading and guidance to the right place of employment. He knows the timing and the place where we will be able to use our gifts and talents for the glory of his Kingdom. And as Christians, we know that the Lord will always provide for his children no matter what comes our way.
