What Bible verses should you read before your job interview?
There are many verses that you can read before your job interview. This verse will enable you to trust God and assure you that God is with you and can make the interview successful. They will build your confidence for your interview since they will strengthen your belief that God is by your side. Some of these verses are;
Mathew 7:7-8 reads, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” These two verses are the best to read as they help you ask God to open the doors for the interview you will be doing. They also assure you that whatever you ask God to do for you, he will answer you and grant you your wish.
Psalm 90:17 reads, “Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!” This is another good verse to read before your interview since it teaches that when God’s favor is on you, He will bless and platform the work of your hand to those around you. Therefore, God can showcase you are very skilled and fit for the job to your interviewers. This verse gives you this assurance and confidence in God.
Do prayers for interviews work instantly?
When faith is at work while you pray for your interview, the prayers can work instantly. According to Mark 11:24, the Bible implies that whatever we ask, we should believe that we have received it and God will make it ours. God wants us to have faith in Him while we pray for him to answer our prayers. Therefore, first, have faith in your prayer for your job interview and God will answer the prayer instantly. Do not doubt because God has great powers and listens to his children. He is the only one who can help you for our interview to be a success, so pray and have faith and God will work through for you instantly.
We also learn that prayers offered in Faith work instantly from the Story of the bleeding woman in Luke 8:43-48. The Bible implies that there was a woman who bled for twelve years and no one could heal her. However, she went behind Jesus and touched a piece of his cloth and the bleeding stopped immediately. Jesus noticed his power leaving him, but when he saw the woman, He told her that her faith had healed her. Therefore, with faith, you can pray for a successful interview and the prayer gets granted instantly. God’s will is we offer our prayers in Faith, so he will instantly answer all these prayers.
However, God can take a while to answer prayers. But that does not mean he will not answer them. Just keep on praying until your prayers work.
What is the best time to pray for an interview?
There is no specific time set for you to pray for an interview, you can pray at any time of the day and God will listen to you. God will never be too tired to hear his children pray. According to Psalms 121:4, the Bible implies that God never sleeps or slumbers. He is always awake and ready to listen to you pray. Therefore, don’t feel like it is too late or too early to pray for your interview, it does not matter the time of the day, night, or the place you are, God will hear your prayer and if you believe, He will grant your wish.
Additionally, according to Ephesians 6:17–18, The Bible implies that we should all the time and make our supplications to God with perseverance. It is the will of God that we get to pray every time to make our petitions known to Him. Therefore, pray every time for your job interview and God will help you.
Can you say these prayers for someone’s interview?
Yes, you can say these prayers for someone else’s interview. According to 1 Timothy 2:1, the Bible suggests that God urges prayers be made for all people. God has instructed that we pray for others for them, to receive His blessings. Therefore, you can say these prayers as a petition for other people to also have a successful interview.
Also, according to James 5:16, the Bible speculates that we confess our sins to one another and pray for one another so we may be healed because the prayer of a righteous person possesses great power while they are at work. Therefore, we also learn from this verse, it is okay to pray for others. God has blessed you and been merciful to you and made you His righteous child. Therefore, your prayer has great power because God listens to his children; hence you can pray for someone else’s interview, and through your faith, God will answer the prayer and help the person you pray for.
How many prayers can you say for a successful interview?
You can say as many prayers as possible for a successful interview. You are not limited to a certain number of prayers while praying for your interview. According to 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, the Bible implies that we should pray continually without giving up in all situations for this is the will of God. Therefore, it does not matter how many prayers you say per hour, day, or week. God wants to hear you pray a lot. God’s will is for you to trust that he can make your interview successful as you be persistent with your prayers.
Also, in Luke 18:1-18 Jesus taught about the parable of the persistent widow to teach that we should pray with persistence. The widow kept going to the judge for justice against her enemies but the judge always refused to grant her justice. She did not give up and after a while, the judge decided to grant her justice so she can stop bothering Him. Though this judge did not believe in God or care what people thought, he decided to grant her justice because she was persistent. Jesus taught that we should be like the widow in this parable while praying. We should not give up and pray as many times as possible for God to answer our prayers. Therefore, pray without giving up on your interview until God answers you. Be persistent and God will see your desperation and answer you.
