PRAYER FOR SUCCESS in Business, Job, Exams

God wants us to succeed in all that we engage in. We read in Genesis 1:28 that “God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and every living creature that moves on the ground.” As we prosper in the spirit, we are also to prosper in all we do, and that is why the Word of God through the Bible urges us to seek His wisdom and guidance in all our ways, in other words, to submit a prayer for success in all our ventures. With God on our side, we can be successful in many things- business, job, and exams.

“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans” (Proverbs 16:3).

Prayer for Success in Business

Prayer should not be restricted to purely spiritual matters. God wants us to have all-around growth. If you are in business or starting a new venture, seeking God’s guidance is very important as it displays confidence in God.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him” (Jeremiah 17:7).

A short prayer for success in a new business venture can go along these lines:

Lord loving God, today I come to you asking for your blessings in my new venture with these resources you have blessed me with. Help me make wise decisions, take the right actions and do everything that brings you honor. Lord God, bless me so I may become a blessing to others in the community. I pray trusting you in all things. Amen.

Prayer for Success in Exams

If you have an important exam or test, you can also pray for success.

Heavenly and loving Father, I pray you watch over me as I sit for this critical exam today. Help me to remain focused and perform at my peak according to the power you have given me. Father, I know all things are possible with you. Give me a quiet mind and a peaceful heart. Hold my hand today and lift my entire being towards success. Amen.

Is it Right to Pray for Success?

The truth is that success here can be complex and emotionally charged. To answer the question needs God’s wisdom because answering too quickly in the affirmative may find one being accused of having some leanings towards the prosperity gospel angle. On the other hand, denying the need for success would appear to contradict the message of the entire Bible, which talks about God’s blessings for His people.

When the success you seek helps others and honors God, praying for that success is not selfish. Furthermore, it becomes your means to helping others and a good testimony.

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God and there we will receive mercy and we will find grace to help us when we need it” (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer for Success Ideas

If you ask God to bless you in all areas where you need victory and success, you could ask Him to expand your borders as He did for Jabez, in what is usually referred to as the Prayer of Jabez.

“And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.” And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him what he requested (1 Chronicle 4:9–10).

Jabez’s prayer for success has 4 key elements:

  • God’s blessing – Acknowledges God as the source of all our blessing (Genesis 22:17).
  • Expansion of territory – Here, Jabez is praying for prosperity, increase, and victory in all he does.
  • God’s hand – Jabez is asking for God’s guidance and strength.
  • Finally, protection from harm.

Implications of Praying for Success

How you pray shows a couple of things about your spiritual life. First, it shows how serious you are about realizing your goals in life. As a result, if you are not severe, you will not pray much about them, and vice versa. More importantly, it reveals how much you depend on God for everything. Finally, the more you learn to depend on Him, the more you will likely take everything to Him in prayer.

Ask God for Success in Business, Job, Exams

Throughout scripture, it is evident that God wants us to become successful in life. By growing and making use of our trust and faith in Him, we get strengthened to fulfill His superior Will or intentions for our lives- the hallmark of true success.

God indeed wants us to be successful in everything if it is by His will. Therefore, we are right and justified to pray to ask Him to bless and help us succeed because He is a loving and caring Heavenly Father.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians. 4:6).
