How to Ask God for Something (Christianity)
Do not ask God for anything if you have never read God’s Word or are not yet a follower of Jesus. Praise God and give thanks first, because you will be able to communicate with him better if you have a close relationship with him. When you sin, you separate yourself from God. To confess and repent means to tell God that you know you have sinned and that you are sorry.
It’s difficult to pray an honest prayer to God if you’re angry or hurt, so make amends with others first. Pray against evil that may be keeping you from God. Be specific about what you want and ask God to provide it for you. If you only ask God for what you want, you might miss out on a larger blessing. Invite God to move and use you however He wants, not just how you want.
Keep praying, and remember to ask God for the wisdom and courage to continue your job search. Have patience and faith that if you stay positive and keep trying, you will eventually find work. Simply tell someone that no matter what challenges they face, everything works out for the good of those who love the Lord.
