You don’t have to pray for another man’s job! I have seen people who are secretly praying to have the jobs of other people and sometimes, that is why they get tempted to kill that person in order to get the job. You should not pray for the jobs that other people already have at the moment because you might get desperate somewhere along the line and easily begin to wish that something bad happens to them so you can have their jobs. Some people pray for others to fall sick so they can have their jobs and some just want others to die so they can have their jobs. It is a very myopic thing to do when you begin to expect to get other people’s jobs and you really don’t care what happens to them so long as you get the job!
There are enough opportunities to go round for everyone even though some people do not agree! Once you do not agree that there are enough opportunities to go round then you most likely would be one of those praying to have other people’s jobs. The other side to the entire issue is that you can develop yourself to be so multitalented and you don’t have to pray for other people’s jobs. When you are multitalented you can have different job offers coming your way or even if they do not come immediately they can come later. You need to equip yourself to be able to do what you admire in other people such that while others are desperate for the jobs of their superiors or even colleagues, other companies are asking you to come and do the same and they are offering you a better package!
Some of those people that I see who are desperate for the jobs of other people are people who really do not have a clear personal vision for their lives and they think their destiny relies on the jobs that other people already have at the moment! When you begin to live your life like your destiny depends on a particular job then it means you really do not know who you are.
I can also say emphatically that those asking for the jobs of other people are people who cannot see far ahead! When you do well at what you are supposed to be doing, opportunities will open up for you either within the organization or even in another organization. I believe you should pray for your own job rather than praying for someone’s job!
In some cases when you even pray to have other people’s jobs, you may not know that God as something big in stock for you. God may also decide that since you are bent on other people’s jobs, they can take those big miracles God has in stock and you can go for that job you have been praying for. Unconsciously what you have done is to pray for God to promote the person instead of you! Sometimes we pray for what God has already given to someone else and we do not have enough sense to just pray for our own rather than asking for what someone already has!
Stop praying for another man’s job because God really has something bigger in stock for you!
