Prayer For Those In Need Of A Job
10 Prayers For Help In Times of Need
Isn’t it true that you spend more time offering prayers for help from God than in any other type of prayer? I know that is the case with me, as much as I do not to admit it. I am so thankful that we have a Heavenly Father who is full of mercy and grace and we can count on the fact that He will always answer our prayers for help.
We can cry out to Him in our time of need and He will rescue us. Though sometimes it seems He will never answer or does not hear, God is still on the throne and available and willing to listen to our prayers for help. Ask for help and then be still and know that He is God and will act in His time.
Listen to the song over there on the right on this page and then take a look at these 10 prayers for help that I have collected.
Gideon’s Prayer for Help – A Sign from the Lord
Judges 6:36-37, 39 “If you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said, 37 behold, I am laying a fleece of wool on the threshing floor.
If there is dew on the fleece alone, and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said …let not your anger burn against me; let me speak just once more.
Please let me test just once more with the fleece. Please let it be dry on the fleece only, and on all the ground let there be dew.”
Hannah’s Prayer for Help – To Have a Son
1 Samuel 1:11 “O Lord of hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your servant and remember me and not forget your servant, but will give to your servant a son, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall touch his head.”
Solomon’s Prayer for Help – Wisdom for a new King
1 Kings 3:5-9 “Ask what I shall give you.” 6 And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you.
And you have kept for him this great and steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. 7 And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in.8 And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude.
9 Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?”
Daniel’s Prayer for Help – Seeking Mercy
Daniel 9:16-19 “O Lord, according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a byword among all who are around us.
17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord, make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 O my God, incline your ear and hear.
Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act.
Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”
Jonah’s Prayer for Help – From the belly of a fish
Jonah 2:2-9 “I called out to the Lord, my distress,and he answered me; the belly of Sheol I cried,and you heard my voice.
3 For you cast me into the deep,
into the heart of the seas,and the flood surrounded me;all your waves and your billowspassed over me.
4 Then I said, ‘I am driven away
from your sight;yet I shall again lookupon your holy temple.’
5 The waters closed in over me to take my life;
the deep surrounded me;weeds were wrapped about my head
6 at the roots of the mountains.
I went down to the landwhose bars closed upon me forever;yet you brought up my life from the pit,O Lord my God.
7 When my life was fainting away,
I remembered the Lord,and my prayer came to you,into your holy temple.
8 Those who pay regard to vain idols
forsake their hope of steadfast love.
9 But I with the voice of thanksgiving
will sacrifice to you;what I have vowed I will pay.
Salvation belongs to the Lord!”
Paul’s Prayer for Help – Spiritual Strength in the Church at Ephesus
Ephesians 3:14-21 4 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
A Prayer for Help – To Follow the Savior
God of all grace,You have given me a Savior,produce in me a faith to live by him,to make him all my desire,all my hope,
all my glory.
May I enter him as my refuge,build on him as my foundation,walk in him as my way,follow him as my guide,conform to him as my example,receive his instructions as my prophet,rely on his intercession as my high priest,
obey him as my king.May your dear Son preserve me from this present evil world,so that its approval never tempt,nor its disapproval terrify,nor its vices defile,
nor its errors delude me.
May I feel that I am a stranger and a pilgrim on earth,declaring plainly that I seek a country,my title to it becoming daily more clear,my desire for it more perfect,my expectations of it more abundant;and whatsoever I do may it be done
in the Saviour’s name. 
A Prayer for Help – To Be An Instrument of God’s Peace
Lord make me an instrument of your peace,Where there is hatred let me sow love.Where there is injury, pardon.Where there is doubt, faith.Where there is despair, hope.Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
O divine master grant that I maynot so much seek to be consoled as to console;to be understood as to understand;To be loved as to loveFor it is in giving that we receive-it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.And it’s in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Many folks in our community have mentioned their need for jobs over the years
And if that’s you, know that God wants you to have a good job. A GOOD job. A job that will be a blessing to you, because:
The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it” (Proverbs 10:22).

Pray this prayer to find a new job:
“Heavenly Father, I come before You in Jesus’ name.
Father God, thank You for hearing my prayer. Thank You that Your Word says “Before you call, I will answer,” and so You have answered me even before I finish this prayer. Thank You for knowing everything that concerns me, and for providing all my needs richly. I know I can depend on You, Father.
Father, I lift up my job situation to You. Lord, I ask right now in Jesus’ name that You would make a way for me to have a new job, a better job. Show me which steps to take.
Lord, if I am to change careers, then please show me what career to pursue. If I am to stay in the same career, give me peace about that. Either way, Lord, I ask right now that You would bring me into a job where the people are good to work with; where they are nice to me and others. Provide a job where I am paid well, where my work schedule would bless and not harm my family.Father God, I ask in Jesus’ name that You would highlight in my mind where I should apply for new jobs. Give me the motivation and inspiration I need to apply, and shine Your light of favor on me there. As I apply, give me the words to say and help me fill out the application perfectly.
Father, I ask also that You would give the interviews that You want me to have–with the right interviewers too. Make it so that, when I walk into the room to apply or interview, the people there would know that I am the one to hire. Be the answer of my tongue, and help me to speak the words during the interview and application process that You want me to speak.
Father, I ask You to provide a good salary, good retirement benefits, good medical and dental insurance, disability insurance, paid time off, paid vacations, and paid sick leave. Provide for the on-the-job training that I need. I ask also for Christian co-workers in the workplace; and for kind, compassionate, generous, and patient supervisors.
Father God, give me wisdom, strength and power. Reveal Yourself as the Glory and Lifter of my head. In the Name of Jesus I declare that the old things are past and the new things have come. Bring me the old place, and into this new place of abundance. Put me in the right job, and deliver me from the wrong jobs.
Thank You, Father. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer, and that I have received everything I’m asking You for. I give You all the glory.
In Jesus’ name, amen.”
Beloved, here are 5 Bible promises you can claim for a new job while you’re praying:
- “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5). Pray this when you ask the Lord to show you where to apply for a new job, and for wisdom during your interview.
- “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” (Matthew 7:7-11).
- “The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it” (Proverbs 10:22). Pray this when asking the Lord for a good wage, good working hours, and everything else good in yoru new job!
- “The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti” (Esther 2:17). Remind the Lord that He is no respecter of persons; what He did for Esther, He will do for you! Ask Him to shine His spotlight of favor on you during the job search process. Ask Him to give you more favor than everyone around you; that the people who are to hire you would know you are the candidate they seek the first time they see you; and that the Lord would help you stand head and shoulders above the rest.
- “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it” (John 14:12-14). Remind the Lord of this Scripture and ask Him to bring you into a greater job with greater works than you’ve ever had. Ask Him to glorify His own name in His answers to your situation. Tell Him what you desire and ask Him to do it; remind Him that He said He will.
Pray this and remind God that you are asking, seeking, and knocking–so He has to bring you your request!
