Surely You are my helper and the sustainer of my soul. Amen.

Lead me to a place that is fair to workers, and where there is a sense of camaraderie and support among the employees and supervisors. Amen.

Amen.


Prayer for Work in a New Field
Loving God, You know that I’ve been working in this one area for several years, but now that I’ve finished my degree, I am looking for a position in a new area that will fit my education. Help me in this transition, Lord. I’m asking that You will lead me to a job that will use my education but also use the skills and knowledge that I’ve acquired in my current job. Thank You for Your guidance. Amen.


Prayer for a New Position
Lord of Wisdom, please help me in this search for new employment. You know that I worked for the same company for many years, and I’m a bit overwhelmed now with how to go about finding new work. Help me to devise an eye-catching resume that will highlight my experience and expertise, and to get references that will showcase my work ethic and contributions. May my age not work against me in this search, but may my acquired knowledge over the years be considered an asset. Amen.


Prayer for a Great Job to Find Me
God of Wonders, I’m asking that as I post my resume on this job-hunting site that it will quickly catch the attention of recruiters and potential employees. May the right job for me quickly fall into place, and please provide for my financial needs in the meantime. Lord, I pray that You will guard me against chasing down leads that won’t go anywhere or spending copious amounts of time responding to queries that are dead-ends. May this search be efficient and quickly land me in a new position that is a great fit. Amen.


Prayer for New Position after Relocating
Lord my Sustainer, please lead me to a wonderful job in this new place. Guide me to the best job-search strategies. Help me to tap into the connections I already have here and am in the process of forming, so I can receive tips about job leads. Help me to be strategically proactive in contacting companies that will be a good fit and getting noticed by them. Lord, lead me to a job that will utilize my skills to the fullest and that will provide ample pay. Amen.

Faithful Father, I thank You for what You’ve already done for me. You’ve guided me through the process, and now I’ve landed a job interview for a great position. And now, Lord, help me prepare well, and to make an excellent impression on those who are interviewing me. Help me to be likable, to demonstrate my abilities, and to show how I can contribute to this company. If this is the right job for me, help me to land this job. Thank You for Your guidance. Amen.
