Prayers for a job, and moving.
« on: April 18, 2008, 02:46:55 AM »
I humbly ask for prayers for a new job, and a place to live. I completed my temporary job with the hospital on March 15th, and have not been able to find work since. I have my resume out a few places (including the company I worked for before the hospital). In addition, my roommate has moved out and is going to China for a year. I am unable to afford the rent on my place, and must be out of my apartment by April 29th. My spiritual father recommended that I not take on another lease until I have a job, so if I do not have a job by the end of the month I will have to put all my things in storage and impose on my brother (who lives 30 miles away).

Please pray that I will find a job and a place to live by the end of the month. Thank you.
Domine Iesu Christe, Fili Dei, miserere mei, peccatricis.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Can you give us your Christian Name, so you can be included in my prayers?  I had been out or work for -8- months, more or less, and God granted me reemployment effective this past Monday.  May God Bless you in your job search.

It's Anastasia. Thank you so much for all of your prayers. . . I appreciate all of your intercessions on my behalf. And praise be to God for bringing you employment after so long. . . I cannot imagine what that would have been like.

Prayers...

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Update: I have a job interview Friday at the company I used to work for. It sounds as if it is a formality only. I will let everyone know how it goes. :)

Thanks for the prayers! I start my job on Monday, and will be looking for a new place very soon. For now my brother and friends are enjoying having me as a guest. ;)

I wanted to update everyone. I started my new job today, and have made arrangements to move into a new apartment on May 16th. Thank everyone for your intercessions on my behalf. I know that they were heard.

Glory be to God.
