I need a job for the summer
« on: May 06, 2008, 10:17:43 AM »
I need a job to pay for bills this summer as I will be between teching positions as I transfer to a different school. Can anyone offer prayers? Thanks.

Lord have mercy, guide, and provide for your servant.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Amen.  I have often prayed to St. Xenia of St. Petersburg for assistance in finding work.  May she assist in your search as well, Papist.

Thank you very much. Just an update for everyone, although I have not yet found the Job I am looking for, I do have a couple of good leads that I pray will bear fruit.

Indeed, I sought the prayers of St. Xenia, and I have no doubt that she had some influence on finding a good job for me in fairly short order.

Lord have mercy, and guide your servant.
