Fasting And Praying For A Job: Best Practice

fasting and praying for a job

If you are looking for job and are considering going for a fast in that regard, this guide on fasting and praying for a job will be of help to you.

God created work for man and man primarily for fellowship with Him and secondarily for work. (See Genesis 2:11-20, KJV).

Work is good, God created it.

And He did primarily to give man opportunity to express his ability and be creative.

Yes, God created work for you so that through it, you will be able to express His creative ability in you.

Plus, God created work for man so that He (God) will have a channel through which He can bless man.

Your work is one of God’s channel to blessing you.

He will bless the work of your hands….whatsoever he doeth, it shall prosper. (See Deuteronomy 28:12, NIV and Psalm 1:3, NIV)

Your prosperity is tied to your work.

God’s blessing is poured on what you do. (See Psalm 90:17, KJV)

His blessing finds expression through your work, it is a channel of blessing.

Now, if you understand the power and blessing of work, you will not want to live without a job for one day.

This is why you must take the matter of fasting and praying for a job serious.

If Satan knows that your work is God’s channel of pouring His blessing on you, you can be sure that He will do all he cannot stop you from having one.

That’s why you must pray.

Fasting And Praying For A Job

Here are a few things you will need to know about fasting and praying for a job, what you need to do and how to do them:

1. Be Definite About One

If I ask you what type of job are you looking for, what will be your answer?

Any job!

Just want to get busy and start lining the house!

Whatever job God will give me!

These and many others are the response from so many believers seeking jobs and employment.

They just want work, something to keep them busy.

No sir!

If you are looking to God for a job and are seeking Him in fasting and prayer, you must be specific and definite about the type of job you want, God grants specific desires. (See Proverbs 10:24)

You must not come to God asking for any Job, no come to Him with specificity and He will grant your desires.

2. Be Prepared

To be sure you need a job, you should at least have some level of training and preparation.

Otherwise, you may just fall into the group of those seeking just for any and every kind of job.

You need some level of training and qualification, you need some level of personal discipline, you need the right attitude and disposition, and you need some level of interpersonal relationships and some other basic things to be able to pin down a job.

You see, the man who wants to employ you knows what he wants in and from you more than what you think you have and can give.

So, in all, be ready for what is to come.

Ask the Lord for help and strength.

3. Be Skilled At What You Do

Skill is the rule of the game in the world of employment today.

When skill meets with educational qualification, the rest is history.

So what are you skilled at?

Don just stop at acquiring academic certificates in your bid to getting a job, work at also acquiring as many skills as you can in the area of your pursuit and endeavors.

Acquire skill, learn as much as you can, pick them up at every opportunity, no one skill is a waste.

For short, employers are looking more for skilled workers today than just ordinary certificate holders.

So question:

Do you have a skill?

If yes, what’s it?

If not, why not!

If yes, does your skill have a commercial value?

How can it help you get better at what you do?

How can it help you get a job or a better one?

How will the skill give you the advantage over competition in the job market?

These are the things that matter in acquiring skills.

4. Seek For Angelic Help

Having done all you can do as human to prepare and make yourself employable, it’s time you seek the ministry of helps from God through the intervention of angles to help get you your desired job.

Angels are ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for you being an heir of salvation. (See Hebrews 1:14, KJV)

So, you can count on their work, efforts and divine arrangements and connection to help get you connected to the right employment.

Ask God for this and He will oblige you.

5. Pray For Relationships And Connection

One prayer point you must not forget to pray while fasting and praying for a job is to ask God to connect you to men and women of influence and power.

You must ask God for profitable relationships.

One man, one woman may be all you need to have your dream job.

Ask God to send help to you in people, ask Him to connect you with destiny helpers; ‘one person that knows the road to the palace.’

And that will help get the job done quicker than all your efforts, applications and CVs’ will do.

6. Pray For The Leading Of The Spirit

Also, in fasting and praying for a job, you must particularly pray for the leading of the Holy Spirit from start to finish.

It is the leadership of the Spirit that will make you to be at the right place, at the right time.

It is His leadership that will make you have the right information, at the right time.

It is His leadership that will orchestrate your steps to meeting the right people at the right time that will make things happen for you.

You need to depend on the Holy Spirit all the way, you need to be sensitive to His leading, instructions and guidance all the way to land your dream job.

Without the leadership of the Spirit, all efforts is a waste, and will all end in futility.

So, let the Lord inspire your choice of a job and also your search of it.

At the end you will have what you wanted because the Lord led the way.

7. Take A Step Of Faith

Faith without work is dead.

Pray all you want and can, if you do not take the step to following the inspiration and leading of the Holy Spirit, you may not get your dream job.

Pray and fast all you can, if you do not take the practical steps to applying for a job, you may never land one.

Fast all you can, if you do not prepare and follow up your preparation with calculated, Holy Spirit inspired actions and steps, you may never get a job.

That’s the truth.

So, now that you have fasted and have asked God’s help for a job, it’s time you take step, practical active steps towards securing your dream job.
