God’s will for His children is to prosper them financially. But He needs a channel through which these blessings will flow into the lives of His own. One of these channels is a job. He promised in Deuteronomy 28:12 that He will bless the work of your hands.
Every good gift, including jobs, come from the Lord (James 1:17). God is willing to bless You with your dream, but He expects You to ask Him for your heart’s desires (Matthew 7:7).
These powerful prayers will help you through your job hunting and application stage to your interview stage until you get the best job you want.
