We Serve A Big God
In present economic times, finding a job could be challenging. It’s growing more difficult to survive in the world. We are frequently the victims of discriminatory hiring practices, which result in unemployment.
Frequently, their decision to choose you or not is influenced by your status and attractiveness. Religion and racism are determinants of whether you are hired or not.
It’s enough already! That’s it, my friends! We worship a greater God. a God who is greater than any business or institution. More than any employer, he is.
The enemies of your success are no match for our God. He is impartial and fair. If you have faith in Jesus Christ, anything is conceivable.

You speak to God directly when you ask for work. If you are having trouble finding work, God is ready and eager to assist you. By entrusting God with your job search, prayer for employment is a wonderful way to relieve all stress and anxiety associated with looking for work.

Prayer for Protection at Work
Father God, I ask for Your protection both physically and spiritually in the job, where our influence, priorities, and character are constantly put to the test. Please remind us that every stupid decision has an effect and that words spoken carelessly are taken seriously by our coworkers. Lord, keep watch before our mouths and watch over the entrance to our lips for others are looking. Keep us safe from those who would try to change our minds or entice us to lower our standards in order to succeed. Put a flag over us that we cannot see to remind us of Your loving protection and that we are Yours.
You value our labor, therefore please swerve us from laziness or poor prioritization. Protect us from irritation or rage when others criticize us or when there is a miscommunication. Shield us from our own sinful nature and assist us in always choosing the path of love while interacting with unhappy clients or irate coworkers. We are grateful for Your assurance that You won’t abandon us and that Your Spirit resides within us to provide knowledge, comfort, and safety from those who would try to take us away from or hurt us. You are Lord, and as our Employer, we rely on You to uphold all the advantages of our employment, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
