Q: Are there verses in the Bible that can be proclaimed in prayer for a job?

Denise’s AnswerThank you so much for your question! Third John verse 2 says, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. ” As you can see, God wants us to prosper! He wants us to work, and we were made to work! 

The Lord wants to bless the work of our hands. Declare out of your mouth, “God wants to bless the work of my hands.” He doesn’t want you to be a lazy person! In fact, the Bible tells us that God can’t bless a lazy person. But He can bless the work of your hands. You should look down at your hands every day and say, “God, I’m believing for a job, and I’m believing You are going to bless the work of my hands.” You can proclaim that over yourself every day! Just look at your hands and make that your confession. Look at them every morning and every night. You might think, This is silly! But it’s not silly — and God doesn’t think it’s silly! 

The Lord promised in His Word that He would bless the work of your hands

Deuteronomy 28:12 says, “The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.” The Lord said in His Word that He would bless the work of your hands!  You must claim that blessing over yourself — that your hands are blessed and your work is blessed too! And watch that blessing begin to manifest in your life. 

Prayer: “Father, we pray for that person looking for a job right now — that You give them a good job. That they find that job, and serve with all their heart in that job. And that You would bless the work of their hands. In Jesus’ name, Amen!”
