Fast and Pray for Job Interviews – Part 2

Fast and Pray for Job Interviews – Part 2

Now comes to Part 2 of the fast and pray for a job interviews which is the week I have 2 phone interviews arranged. One from my home country and one from London where I wanted to be the most. As I’m not going to work, it could be more challenging for keeping the discipline to fast. However, may the Spirit continue to lead my prayer for the successful interview process.

Purpose of Prayer :  Prayer for successful job interviews. I’m also praying for a friend of mine who are facing the similar situation.
Duration: 2 Days
Fasting Recipe: Normal breakfast. Vegetable Soup for dinner. Fasting without meat. (Sorry Lord, I feel weak sometimes during the fasting period, please forgive me for breaking fast earlier sometimes.)

Special thanks to my supportive family in Christ – Maria & Grey who are fasting together with me. Thank God for the job interviews opportunity that I’m having. There is hope in me with faith that I have received the job contract at Your will. Still I want to keep pray and praise for Your almighty hand working the right plan for me.

Day 1 Prayer with Thanksgiving

First interview from a company of my home country.

Thank you Lord for You have placed the desire in my heart. I pray for my needs and the needs of others. I can rejoice because all my prayers has been answered in the affirmative.  Thank you for the answer is YES even before I ask. It’s wonderful that God has displaces worry in my life. With thankful heart, I offer my prayer and have faith that I will receive everything I asked in prayer.

24 I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!

Isaiah 65:24

Day 2 God has no limit

Interview from an organisation in London and the interviewer made the point there will be no visa assistance provided.

I know the Lord I’m serving has unlimited power, knowledge and capacity. We have limited understanding of God’s work most of the time but I just need to believe all things is possible in You. Thank you and all praises for Your love pouring on my everyday. Let me learn to obey Your will regardless where I am going. In God’s almighty name, mountain will be moved and ocean is apart. The obstacles we see in our eyes and understanding is limited but Your will be done for those who love You. Thank you Lord for your faithful love in Jesus name, Amen.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.

1 Corinthians 13:7-10

Day 3 We are not perfect or flawless

Second interview from the same company 2 days ago.

I need to confess my weaknesses for not able to continue further fasting because my body started to feel weak and losing energy. As such, I broke the fast and continue to pray as I’m preparing for the interviews. What I’m trying to tell you that it isn’t a shame if you broke fast before your pre-set target. This will not change God’s decision not to listen to my prayer and He knows for sure our physical body needs.

Instead, it was a stressful week for me and I’ve finally done it all. I went to the beach and sun bathing for 3 hours while watching other people surf. My ex-colleague called me in the afternoon and suggested we go to have BBQ at a park. Thou we ended have to finished our half BBQ stuff back to our house. Then another ex-colleague called me out for a glass of wine after that. I had really enjoyed my day with so much entertainment that I’ve not had since long ago. Apparently God has kept telling me Sabbath Rest for this 2 weeks.

This blog is not created meant to be perfect flawless sides of my life but the reality in our life isn’t always perfect and flawless. Still …… we deserved to be loved and respected regardless who we are or how weak we think we are.

Share the love if you think it helps others.
