Sending up a prayer for promotion
We are picking up from our previous post about prayer for your job! This time it is a prayer for promotion. We are not called or raised to be stagnant people! God moves us from one glory to another, from one victory to another!
Deuteronomy 25:4 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 “You shall not muzzle an ox while it [a]treads out the grain.
The bible tells us that a worker is worth his wage. We know that we are not to muzzle the oxen that tread the wheat. In the simplest possible terms, this tells us that those who make an effort should see a reward for their work.
Prayer for promotion relates to elevation in the workplace. I know people that have worked the hardest for an organisation, only to be passed up for promotion in favour of someone who the boss may have a relationship of some sort with.
Promotion is the heritage of the saints. If they will not make room for you at the table, your gift will build a table for you. Once the table is built, God’s sense of humour is that he will prepare that table for you in the presence of those that have passed you up for opportunity!
Bless the works of my hands
Psalm 90:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands.
Father, bless the works of my hands! Lord, whatever you cause my mind to conceive, teach my hands to see through. Teach me to build what I have envisioned. Make me a doer and not just a dreamer! In Jesus’ name! Amen
Make Room for me
Proverbs 18:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 A man’s gift makes room for him,
And brings him before great men.
Lord your word promises that my gift will make room for me! Father, I pray that you would see this word to completion! I thank you, for you are not a man that you would make false promises! You are not a son of a man that you would change your mind! Thank you for making room for me at tables that I have previously been shunned at! In Jesus’ name! Amen
Prepare a table for me
Psalm 23 New King James Version (NKJV)
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Dear Lord, you are my shepherd. Your word tells me that you prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies! Father, let everyone that has shunned me from their table bear witness as you set a table for me! I thank you for those that refuse to fill my cup! May they see it overflow with your goodness! In Jesus’ name! Amen
Make me a city on a hill
Matthew 5:14-15 New King James Version (NKJV)
14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Lord, make me a living and walking testimony of your goodness in the land of the living! I will be like a city on a hill. Your goodness in my life is so incredible that it cannot be hidden! Let it be a light that all man shall see and be in awe! In Jesus’ name! Amen
