I had mild heart failure can I work full time?

Absolutely. Assuming you truly have mild failure, and you implement the therapeutic lifestyle changes needed (weight loss, salt restriction) and your doctors prescribe the appropriate medications in the appropriate doses, and you are compliant with the medications, you should get back to full & normal activities, or very close to it. Patient and doctor both have to hold up their ends of the deal! good luck!
Yes. Yes if it is under control with medication , and life style changes , then you should be able to work in an office setting full time. You might still have to avoid physical stress, so certain jobs like firefighting might be out. Check with your doctor about the specifics in your case.

Heart failure when I eat too much salt. I need money so can I work full time?

Little or no salt. Too much salt intake will greatly increase your risk of acute heart failure. It does so by raising your blood pressure, increasing your circulating blood volume and raising your renin level, therby making your heart work harder, increasing the oxygen demand of your heart muscle and raising the pressures inside your left ventricle. No more than 1.5 grams of salt consumed per day. Read more...

Prayer. You received excellent input from dr. Matos-cruz & dr. Loh. I believe you are asking if you will experience the miracle of being healed if you pray.
