You have said that if I ask you for anything, I have the guarantee that I will receive my request (Matthew 7:7).

Today I ask you to give me a career breakthrough. I have stagnated in the same position for very long and it causes me frustration.

Show me how I can move forward in my career and what I can do to make it happen.

Give me a bigger platform to influence more people for the kingdom of God.

Grant me favor with my superiors and those you have placed in positions of power to help me.

Go ahead of me and break down the walls, gates of bronze and all obstacles standing in the way of my career’s prosperity.

I will declare your word until I see my career breakthrough manifest. I thank you in advance for this miracle.

  In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Guide my steps as I look for the ideal career and lead me to great opportunities that match my gifts and skill set.
