Prayer for a New Job–Stagnation could be frustrating. Life is
in a continuous progression. The unemployed wants a job; the
employed wants a better paid job; the better paid wants to be
self-employed; the self-employed wants to be a business
owner; and the business owner wants to be an investor. So, it
is normal to want a better or new job. But Psalm 75:6 says,
“Promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west,
nor from the south.”
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my
help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and
earth” (Psalm 121:1-2).
The Indispensable God: Whether man acknowledges this or
not, it is impossible for him to become anything without God.
“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me,
and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me
ye can do nothing” (John 15:5).
It is, therefore, logical to call on Him for help even with what
you can humanly accomplish because even the ability to do so
is from Him.
Faithfulness with What You Do: While it is good to seek a
new job, we should remember that faithfulness with what you
already have is a criterion for being trusted with a better
“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much:
and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much” (Luke
And if the new job that God wishes to give you is to make you
your own boss, then you must have been faithful with another
man’s business in your care.
“And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another
man's, who shall give you that which is your own?” (Luke
