God wants to provide guidance in every area of our lives. He does not want to only help us in spiritual things but he is concerned about each and every aspect of our being.
Career guidance is a critical area where you and I should seek God’s guidance. A career is directly tied to our purpose on earth. Therefore, you and I should seek God to ensure that we are serving in the capacity and field that he desires.
Hereunder is a short but powerful prayer that you can say asking the father for career guidance.
Our Heavenly Father,
Hallowed be your name. You are great, you are the almighty and you are the I am that I am. You are the creator of my life and the lover of my soul.
You are worthy. Thou art exalteth high above all Gods. There is no God like you. You are the only true and living God. Thou art master and creator of heaven and earth. I praise your name. For your name is great and greatly to be praise! I worship you Oh Lord. You are good. Thank you for all that you have done for me.
I appreciate the blessing of seeing a new day. I am thankful that I can move, that I can see, that I am living in a beautiful and safe country and that my country is relatively peaceful. I am grateful for clean drinking water and air that is safe to inhale. I am grateful for all your daily provision. For food, clothing and a shelter, I give you praise Oh Lord.
Father, thank you for revealing my purpose to me at a young age. I have always loved (details of career) from since as a childhood. Thank you for the countless doors that you have opened to me. I am so thankful for the opportunity to further my education. I have grown so much both professionally and personally from the doors that you have afforded me. For this Lord, I give you all the glory, honour and praise.
Father, I am at a cross roads in my career. I am about to enter the workforce and I am not sure which direction I should take. Give me clarity dear Jesus. You are my provider. Your word promises that you will provide for me and meet every need that I have. Psalm chapter 23 verse 1 states that you are my shepherd and I shall not want.
Direct my steps. Bring me into uncommon and supernatural favour with persons who can provide me with opportunities so that I can advance my career. I am so happy that I can cast all my cares upon you for your careth for me. I am so glad that you are my friend and you are part of my life. I am delighted that I can call you my saviour.
Father, I want to work in a career and in a workplace that I love. I want to have an excellent relationship with my colleagues, boss and other stakeholders. Lord, I recognize that work plays a major role in my life.
I really want to be in an environment where I am challenged. I want to experience tremendous growth and development. I want to be able to freely share your love and that others may see you through my actions and interactions.
Your word says in the book of Jeremiah states that you have a plan for me. Therefore, please show me your plan. Reveal to me the direction that you will like my career to take and where you want me to make a difference.
Lord, please remove any opportunity that is not your best and your will from my path. Father, I need your presence to be before, behind and around me in everything that I do.
Order my steps and use me to serve others for your glory and your honour. In Jesus Name, Amen!
