If you’ve cherished a career for so long, are in good terms with the company and actually like what you’re doing, getting laid off for reasons beyond your control can be a very painful experience.

Prayer is an important aspect of job hunting. You can’t just rely on your good credentials and experience to land in a job. Aside from the tips I discuss here, I also let you in on personal stories of times when I failed to pray and seek the Lord as I was looking for work. I hope this serves as a lesson to you.
