What is Prayer?
Prayer isn’t a ritual that depends on closing our eyes and putting on holy faces. It is to humble our hearts, cover our self with humility, have peace in the heart and mind; pray in the truth and pray in the Spirit and sometimes in the tongues
(Romans 8:26-27 And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groaning’s that cannot be expressed in words.
 And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will)
We only don’t have to kneel or sit; we can pray while walking, driving, or working. God responds to a two word cry for help in the middle of crises, just like He does to a focused prayer time after reading Scripture in the morning. Praying doesn’t have to be complicated. God delights in any simple words we offer Him.
A Prayer for Employment
The topic of finances and work can be a constant worry to some because it makes up such a large part of our daily lives. There is stress in not making enough money, fear in losing a job, jealousy in seeing someone else’s accomplishments when you’ve worked just as hard, and weariness in a taxing, underappreciated position. Sometimes you just want to quit and do something else. Other times you need something, anything to support yourself and your family; yet, opportunities seem scarce.
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 Saviour and King.
We have a God who can relate, and he is a God who wants to hear from us even in our most trying moments. Our heavenly Father knows everything that’s going on in our lives, but he still wants us to seek him and confide in him. He wants us to trust him that he will hold us close no matter what turns our lives may take. Use this prayer for employment to speak powerful words of belief and hope over your life.
1 Chronicles 4:10
He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!” And God granted him his request.
A Prayer for Employment
Oh Loving Father God,
You know my needs. You know my desire for a job, for work I enjoy doing, for the next step in my career to present itself. I pray that you would guide me as I continue on this job hunting journey.
Joshua 1:8 Study this Book (The Word of the God) of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.
May I focus first on your will for my life, putting your desires and your plan above my own wishes and wants? Open doors to new opportunities that you desire for me, and equip me with the skills, knowledge, and wisdom I need to take steps forward in this process. As I craft my resume, write cover letters, submit my applications, connect with new companies and potential employers, and go on interviews, give me the words to speak and the courage to share who I am and what I can do. Give me confidence that can only come from you, and give me humility too. I trust you, Lord– my life is in your hands. Your will be done. Thank you for being near to me every step of the way and thank you for always providing for my every need. May this all be for Your Glory; In Jesus Mighty Matchless name we Pray! Amen
“The LORD will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
 “If you obey the commands of the LORD your God and walk in his ways, the LORD will establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do.
 The LORD will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend too many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them.
IN LORD JESUS MIGHTY NAME; there is Prosperity, there is Abundant Life, There are Good Jobs, there is Provisions, and there is Health, there is Joy, there is Peace, there is Grace, there is Compassion, there is Mercy and above all there is Love!
