9 Prayers For Starting A New Job

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands

Psalm 90:17

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths

Proverbs 3:5-6.

Finding a new job is like opening a new door in your life. This new door will contain new experiences with new people. A new job is an opportunity for us to grow in responsibility and duty. It is a new chapter that presents us with a new path to follow.

We learn, we teach, we befriend and we share in our new jobs. It is also a chance to achieve our dreams and aspirations. They open new financial avenues for us to better our lives and realize goals that we set for ourselves.

As Christians new jobs present us with opportunities to lead others to God. It should not surprise you to realize that an untouched life may be the reason God gives you a job. It is our duty to empower, encourage, motivate and console our coworkers with the word of God each day with any opportunity we get.

We must conduct ourselves in an exemplary manner so others will look at us and give glory to God. We must be dignified, glorious, and set apart from all evil. This will make people come to us when they have problems. We must work with wisdom and grace so that our mere presence becomes a calming influence on our coworkers.

Peter followed Christ because he listened to his word with faith and then acted on it. The bible says that Peter fished what he had never done before after that. We must be Christ-like in our workplace and let people listen to us through faith. This will give them fulfilling lives and glory in the Lord.

A Psalm of David

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows

Psalm 23:1-6

Let these words of David be your constant reminder of God’s presence in your life.
