Prayer for a job interview

I’m so glad you’re here. Let’s talk about prayer and the Holy Spirit, but first let me tell you a story. When I was younger, I went to an interview for a job at a hospital. It was actually more of a work-study program, where they teach med students how to do physical exams on patients who don’t need medical treatment but just want to get checked out by doctors as part of their routine checkups. The interviewer asked me if I had any questions and then sort of stared at my face for ten seconds before asking me what kind of music I like. Then he told me that he’d prayed for the position ahead of time so that God would lead him toward whoever would be best suited for the job—and that’s why he had chosen me! Well, maybe it wasn’t exactly like that, but I was pretty sure it happened because this guy was just so confident in his ability to pray effectively and get results through prayer alone (without help from anyone else). Anyway…

Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The Lord be with you

And also with you

Let us pray: O God our Father who by the power of your Holy Spirit filled with love and joy all who believe in you; grant that we may serve you with pure hearts here on earth and someday be united with you in heaven through Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen

Just helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person.

Just helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person.

I know that’s not a very deep thought or anything, but it’s a good reminder to keep in your mind when you’re helping others. You never know what someone else is going through and how much help they need. You may be the only person that person trusts and the only one who can help them with whatever problem they’re having. You may be able to make all the difference in their life if you give them some advice or support at just the right time.

For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ

As you prepare for your interview, I pray that the Holy Spirit will fill you with strength and peace. God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us (Romans 5:5). I pray that this love, which is like a river of life flowing from God’s throne in heaven (Revelation 22:1), will flood your heart so that you can feel confident during the interview. You were created by God and are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139). This means YOU have value! You have worth! You have great things to offer this world! As we look at ourselves through Christ-like eyes we can see that His handprint is on us even when others do not see it or acknowledge it. Therefore when someone asks about yourself or asks where you see yourself in five years—or whatever question comes up—the answer should flow naturally from within because YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE JOB AND IT IS YOUR DESTINATION FROM GOD!

bible verses for job interview success

Have you ever felt like God was calling you to do something big? Maybe it was a job offer that seemed too good to be true. Or maybe it was the perfect opportunity to share your faith with someone who desperately needed it. Whatever the case may be, we’ve all had moments where we just knew that what we were supposed to do next would help us become closer to Christ and reach out in love. And if that describes you right now? Then these Bible verses for job interview success will help guide you toward success!

Psalm 107:26

Psalm 107:26

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

He counts the number of the stars; he gives names to all of them.

Proverbs 16:3

Proverbs 16:3 is a great verse to memorize, especially if you’re in the job market. It says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”

When we make decisions that are based on our own wisdom and ability, we’re more likely to fail. But when we commit our plans—our lives—to God’s wisdom instead of our own, His power will work out what He wants for us.

If you want some practical tips on how this can apply in your job search (and life!), check out these three ways I’ve seen God use Proverbs 16:3 as an answer prayer during my time at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship:

2 Corinthians 3:5

2 Corinthians 3:5 is the perfect quote to end your interview with. It reminds us that God is in control of everything and he is working for our good. God has a plan for you, so don’t worry about what happens next. God will open doors for you and close doors for you as he sees fit. Don’t worry about what others think about your job or career choice; just follow God’s lead and trust him with the results!

This verse reminds us that we have no power over our own lives, but rather it is God who controls all things (including our jobs). He opens windows of opportunity when necessary, he closes them when it’s not time yet—no matter how bad we want something or how much work we’ve put into getting it! Such are the ways of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

1 Peter 3:15

1 Peter 3:15

You may be asked to share a bible verse with the interviewer, so be prepared! In 1 Peter 3:15, it says that we should always be ready to give an answer for why we believe what we do. This means being ready with answers when others ask you about your faith in Christ. The other verse that comes close to this one is Philippians 4:13 (but we used it already).

Matthew 6:33

When you’re looking for a job, it’s not enough to simply do your best and accept whatever happens. You have to actively seek out opportunities and make yourself available for the right ones. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus says that we should ask God for wisdom, knowledge, understanding—and then go after it. It may seem like common sense; but most people don’t actually apply this kind of logic in their lives or careers. They’ll spend hours looking at job postings on the internet; but if a great opportunity comes along from an unexpected source (for example, through networking or referrals), they won’t take advantage of it because they assume that “they don’t have time.” They’ll worry about how much money they’ll make at every step along the way—but they won’t think about whether or not there’s anything more important than money in life (God). It’s easy to get discouraged when we recognize flaws in our own behavior; but if we want better results in life, we need first acknowledge them honestly so that change can begin!

Conclusion

If you are going to be interviewed for a position, it is important that you do your best to make a good impression on the people who will be interviewing you. This can include dressing nicely and showing up early so that they have time to talk with each person individually before starting off the group interview process. You also want to have some questions prepared ahead of time so that they don’t feel like they’re just talking with someone who doesn’t really care about what they’re doing there in person or over the phone.

If you have a job interview coming up, this prayer is one way to help you prepare. Make sure that you’re ready by doing research on the company and the position, practicing answers to common questions, and dressing appropriately. It’s also important that you show up with confidence and listen closely so your interviewer knows what they can expect from working with you!
