If you are looking for a prayer for an interview, you are on the right post. This post will include prayers for job interviews, Read on! Job applications can be incredibly stressful. For most people, they stand between you having a roof over your head and food on the table.
That sort of pressure is not to be taken lightly. That being said, most jobs receive a lot of applications. The fact that they have invited you in for an interview means that they like something about you. You are halfway towards your goal of getting this job. Perhaps you are interviewing for a promotion.
Proverbs 18:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 A man’s gift makes room for him,
And brings him before great men.
The Bible promises that our gifts will sit us with royalty. The skills that you have. The ones that you are offering the job that you are applying for will sit you with kings. Our is that the Lord would bless the works of your hands.
Revelation 3:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, [a]and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
We know that a lazy man should not eat. Yet you have stepped out to work. Your efforts should be rewarded. The seed that you are sowing with the effort of this application and the time to hone the skills that you are presenting for this job should be rewarded.
What we often forget is that everything that we do is holy unto him. We stand in worship even in our jobs. The Bible tells us that when they would see Jesus do anything, they knew that there was something different about him. This is how he managed to gather multitudes around him. I believe it is with the same mantle that he would have carried himself, even in his carpentry.
Let’s get straight into a job interview prayer:
Prayer for a job interview
Dear Heavenly father,
We bless your name for this opportunity. Your word says when you set before me an open door, no man can shut it. I thank you for this open door. I thank you for the fact that no man can shut it. Lord hear my prayer before a job interview. In Jesus’ name. Amen
A Prayer of Preparation For My Job Interview
I thank you for this upcoming job interview. As I prepare for it, dear Lord, open my eyes. I ask that you would give me wisdom in preparation. Direct me as I prepare for this interview. Show me the areas that I need to be ready for. Order my footsteps, so I may know what I need to know in order to do well in the interview. In Jesus’ name. Amen
Prayer for Favour in my Interview
Lord, I thank you for favour in my job interview. I thank you for going ahead of me and making all crooked road straight. Father I speak into the interviewers, may their countenance be uplifted.
Proverbs 3:4-7 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 And so find favor and [a]high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall [b]direct your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
Prayer For God’s Support In An Interview
God’s support can be the difference between success and failure in life and in an interview. This is why King David would not go without the Lord. This is why Moses refused to leave the Lord’s presence. For the same reason why Jacob wrestled and held on. Our prayer is that you won’t do this alone.
Thank you for this job interview. I pray that you would support me through it. Give me the right words. As a matter of fact, speak on my behalf. Speak through me. Let every word out of my mouth be God-breathed. In Jesus’ name! Amen
Prayer for a New Job
Thank you for my new job. It is by your grace that this has come to pass. I thank you for the opposition that has stood in my way. I thank you for standing for me when I have been unable to stand for myself. Lord as I have started this journey with you, I am safe in the knowledge that you are a God of completion.
I rest on the truth that you will walk with me in my new job. Favour is my portion wherever I set my feet. In Jesus’ name! Amen
Prayer for Peace of Mind
Peace can be elusive when you are facing the pressure that comes with job applications and interviews. This is why you find that depression and even suicide are at the highest in men between the ages of 25 and 45. This is the time when all the pressure of trying to set yourself for life is at the peak. Here’s a Prayer for peace.
Psalm 46:10 New King James Version (NKJV)
10 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
Dear Heavenly Father,
I bless your name for peace. Teach my heart to find peace in you. Lord I receive peace of mind. Thank you for peace that surpasses all understanding. In the midst of every storm that life will throw at me, I find peace in you. In Jesus’ name. Amen
Prayer for a Job Offer
You’ve had that amazing interview and are now waiting to hear back. The uncertainty of this time can be trying. You are waiting in hope that they come back with a great job offer for you. On the under hand you also have the worry that they may come back and deliver news that you didn’t get the job.
Isaiah 41:10 New King James Version (NKJV)
10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
Thank you for carrying me through the job application and job interview. As I wait, I thank you for being with me. I will not be dismayed. You are God! You are my strength, and my help. You will uphold me regardless of outcome. I thank you for the right door. If this is the one for me, make it happen. If not, shut it and open the right one for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen
