Dear Father,

I would love this job, and I feel excited about this possible new adventure. Please bless my application, my interview and my hopes by your Spirit.

Father, I ask for your favour in this and your hand to be upon the process. May your peace reign in my heart as I await the outcome and may your anointing rest upon me as I look to bring your Kingdom through the work I do.

In Jesus name,
