Question:

What prayer can I say to find a job?

Answer:

The Amidah (Shmoneh Esrai) prayer, which is recited three times a day, includes a request for livelihood.

One should also recite Psalms, as all Psalms are suitable prayers for all good things.

Additionally, give charity, even if it is just a penny or a nickel, every day, and pledge to give more when you have a job and will have more to give.

And of course, don't forget to go out looking for a job!

The Book of Psalms. One of the 24 books of the Bible. Compiled by King David; mostly comprised of poetic praise for G-d. A large part of our prayers are culled from this book.
