The sun rises above trees surrounding a green lawn as you pray a one-minute prayer for a new job.

A One-minute Prayer for a New Job

Jump to section

Starting a new job can be both exciting and stressful! This one-minute prayer for a new job can help calm your nerves and focus your heart on God your provider and your strength.

A woman in a business outfit holds papers and a phone outside a conference room, praying a one-minute prayer for a new job.

Dear God, I am grateful for this new opportunity You have given me. But I’m also a little nervous. Thank You for being with me as I begin my new job. I want to enjoy it, and the people I work with, but I also want to be a light for You.

Help me to be calm, to learn quickly what I need to know, and to work for Your glory and not my own. Let my words be laced with grace. Give me clarity and understanding. Keep me safe physically and emotionally. Help me to be discerning about the people I work with. And help me to have fun!

I know that You are with me, so remind me to turn to You when I’m feeling overwhelmed or inadequate. Remind me of what I know. You provided this job for me because You know that I am capable. I can do this!

Thank You for Your unfailing love. In the powerful name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
