Prayers for employment
« on: January 14, 2009, 03:41:56 PM »
Hello all,

If you could please say a prayer for me I'd appreciate it. I lost my job in Dec and have not had a lot of luck finding one.

Thanks!

In XC,

Maureen

The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

Budget cuts at my work...  In two weeks I'll be joining the ever-expanding ranks of the unemployed.  (Hey, at least my boss gave me two weeks notice.)  The silver lining to this cloud:  at least I'll have the time I always wanted to build my professional network, starting with my www.LinkedIn.com profile.

Lord have mercy!

Through the prayers of Holy Saint Xenia of St. Petersburg, may the Lord have mercy on thy servant!

Lord, have mercy!
I was out of work for virtually 3 years but have been back working now for a few weeks. Not quite sure which I prefer with my 'issues'. One door closes another one opens.
Pray you find something suitable soon.
