Matthew 6:33 (NKJV) encourages us, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” This verse reminds us to prioritize our relationship with God and trust that He will provide for our needs.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV) also provides comfort: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” God’s plans for us are good, and He desires to lead us into fulfilling and prosperous paths.

A prayer for a job is a powerful way to express your dependence on God, asking for His wisdom, direction, and provision. It is a declaration of faith that He will open doors and lead you to the right employment opportunities that align with His will for your life.

Let us turn to God in prayer, seeking His guidance and provision as we declare, “I need a job.”
