Prayer for a Job Interview

Attending an interview can be a stressful experience. Thankfully we have a God who promises to never desert us or abandon us, and offers us a peace that "surpasses all understanding" (Phil 4:7). This page contains three prayers that you can say before entering the interview room, and a short film you can watch to help calm your mind and receive this precious gift of peace. There is also a simple prayer for after the job interview has taken place, and a prayer for a job offer (by using the famous "Prayer of Jabez").

A Prayer For A Job Interview

(a short prayer to say before the interview)

Dear Lord,

Help me to give of my best today in this interview.
Wrap me in your loving arms when I feel insecure.
Hold me in your steady embrace when I feel nervous.
Help me to understand the questions I am asked,
And answer in a honest and inspired way.

In the interview, I pray you would show me if this is the right job for me.
I am your servant and I seek to do your will on this earth.
Lead me in your paths and guide me into all truth.

I ask all this in the beautiful name of Jesus
My Saviour and friend.

Prayer for a New Job Interview

Dear Father,

Thank you that you are with me and I am safe in you.
I place this job interview into your wise hands.
Help me to walk without fear into this challenge,
Lord, may my skills, attitude and enthusiasm shine out.
I ask for the presence of your Spirit in the interview room,
Come guide and direct my paths, my words and my answers.
Thank you that you are with me always.
