There is no better way to begin a new chapter in your career than seeking God’s leading and guidance in prayer.

You have finally gotten over one major hurdle which is the job interview process. Now that you are about to start a new job, you need God’s presence to continue to be with you.

The following is a heartfelt prayer that you can say when starting a new job:

Dear Father,

Thank you for your goodness, mercies and your love. You have been a wonderful father and provider to me. I am so grateful for all that you have done for me. My words cannot fully express how deeply appreciative I am for your continuous blessings in my life.

Father, I am thankful for you answering my prayer. Your hand of favour has blessed me with a new job. Your word in the book of Psalm states that promotion cometh neither from the east nor the west nor from the south. So, I give you thanks for your provision and your favour over my life.

Father, today is my first day at this new job. Help me oh lord to learn everything that is required of me effectively and speedily. Grant me favour with my colleagues and manager. Calm my nerves and fears, dear Father.

Give me faith and courage so that I can be a great ambassador for you. Help me to say what you want me to. Help me to act in a manner that is pleasing to you.

Remember the person who is doing the orientation and training. Touch his/her speech so that principles and processes will be explained in a clear and detailed manner.

Father you are in control. I place my trust and faith in you. You have seen me through in times past and by your strong right hand, I will excel at this new chapter.

Just be with me as I go. What I am asking for myself, don’t fail to grant this same blessing to another brother or sister who may be starting a new job today.
