Prayer in Starting My New Job
All-powerful Father in heaven, You are a good Father, and when I look back at my life, I can see Your hand providing for me. Thank You for this new job. Help me to honor You in the way that I work. You say that whatever I do, work at it with all my heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Guide me so that I do everything in Your name.

I know some days will be tiring and I will be tempted to cut corners to get the job done. Lord, destroy any temptation I may have to cheat my employer in such a way. My employer deserves my best work, and that is the work You expect of me as well. Help me to do the things I need to do to increase my endurance, such as getting proper sleep, eating well, and exercising. Keep my mind clear from distractions and focused on my assignments. Mold me into a well-trained employee for my job. Amen.

Prayer to Communicate Well
Dear Lord Jesus, my Savior, I thank You for Your constant blessing over me. You have given me life and salvation and assured me of who You are through Your Word.

Lord, in this job, I pray that You increase my communication skills so I can interact with my boss and colleagues effectively and clearly. Help me to listen more than I speak. Adjust my body language so that I do not give the wrong signals. Guard my tongue so that no negativity, complaining, or gossiping comes from my lips. In Your almighty name, I pray for Your help. Amen.

Prayer to Get Along Well With My Colleagues
Jehovah Shalom, our God of peace, You have commanded me to represent You in the world by loving my neighbor as myself. In this job, help me say the right things so I can get to know as many of my colleagues as possible, and even develop friendships. Direct my actions so that I can quickly be accepted as a member of the team. Show me how to be helpful to my colleagues so they know that I am a team player and am not competing with them. Foster an atmosphere of friendliness around me, Lord, and make this job one that lasts a very long time! I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer for Wisdom and Guidance
O Lord, our Great Shepherd, You give wisdom generously to those who ask. In this new job, I do need an increased amount of wisdom from You. Give me wisdom that comes from You and not earthly wisdom. Open my mind to absorbing all the information I can about the company, the job, my boss and my colleagues. Help me to approach every problem with clarity and creativity. Show me how to navigate office politics and identify the influencers in the office. Direct me in my ways, Lord, so that my new job is a success. Thank You for the hope and guidance I have in Jesus. Amen.

Prayer of Gratitude for My Job
