What Does the Bible Say about Employment and Work?

The Oxford Dictionary defines employment as “work, especially when it is done to earn money.”

The Bible takes a different approach.

 “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.”

Colossians 2:23

In this and other scriptures like it, work is a calling to use God-given gifts for His service. It is so much more than simply making ends meet or getting that paycheck at the end of the week.

With this perspective, employment should feel less like drawn-out punishment and more like a gift from God and a chance to serve Him.

So how do we get back to the path of joy and fulfillment that comes with employment as God meant it to be? The answer is simple: By praying.

4 Powerful Prayers

To help you out, here are four short but powerful prayers for employment. These will help you keep holding on for God’s guidance and provision wherever you are in your job search.

Prayer to Provide Employment

Dear Lord, 

I pray for your favor and provision as I continue to look for a job. I pray that you go ahead of me, prepare my path, and give me favor in the minds and hearts of my interviewers. Above all, I pray that I get a job that brings me fulfillment, peace, and an opportunity to serve you. 

Amen.

Prayer to Remove Barriers

Lord Almighty, who gives and takes away, Whose power knows no bounds, 

I pray that you help me tear down all these barriers that are stopping me from finding work. I pray that issues like money, competition, and even underhanded tactics will not keep me from your will and purpose for my life. Most of all, I pray for tolerance and patience in the presence of these hindrances. 

Amen.

Prayer for Surrender

Dear Father in Heaven, 

You have been with me throughout this journey of job searching. You have seen my tears of frustration and disappointment. I pray today for the gift of release as I surrender it all to You. I choose to trust in You and let You guide all my steps, from the interviews I should take to the answers I should give. I trust You completely. 

Amen.

Prayer for Guidance and Peace of Mind

Heavenly Father, 

I come to you today with a heart full of thanksgiving for the opportunity of employment that You have blessed me with. 

As I continue to serve in Your name, I pray for peace of mind and guidance in every step that I take. I pray that Your influence will be evident in my enthusiasm and results, and that You will guide me toward Your purpose for me in this position. 

Let everything in my life be done for Your glory and honor. 

Amen.

Take It to the Lord in Prayer

God knows all our needs before we even bring them before Him. However, it does not hurt to let Him know exactly what you need from Him. If anything, this should remind you that you are not walking the path of seeking or keeping employment all on your own.

These four powerful prayers for employment should give you a great place to start. Just remember to be patient and trust in God’s will and His timing. Things will surely work out as they are meant to.

We are not paid for the work we do; the money is not our motivation and doesn’t drive us in our endeavours working with (and for) the poor from the edges of our society. But of course, without financial resources, we could not implement our goals and activities.

Support Operando Society

We are devoted volunteers and we don't want to live in a society where there are a poverty, hunger and misery, which is just inexcusable!

We believe our World can be better, nicer and fair. We do our best to contribute, adding our peace of the puzzle to get this beautiful picture we all thrive for.

We are not paid for the work we do; the money is not our motivation and doesn't drive us in our endeavours working with (and for) the poor from the edges of our society. But of course, without financial resources, we could not implement our goals and activities.

Our website and all that we offer you for free actually cost us. A global missionary journey of our volunteers, Silva and Nace, also costs. There are expenses of transport that we pay regularly from our account - the money that depends on our donors, sponsors, supporters and all the others who want to contribute their share to our mission.

Hence, your donation is not a gift for the benefits of our members and volunteers. It is entirely spent to develop new projects and to cover our regular expenses: website maintenance, accounting and travel expenses for our volunteers.

We know that you care. So we encourage you to support our work and make it possible for us to help the poorest in this World.
