For my sister Anya
« on: February 20, 2009, 01:01:12 PM »

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I humbly request your prayers for my sister Anya.

Her place of employment is cutting back their workforce and has required everyone to "re-interview" for their positions.

Her two interviews are tomorrow morning and afternoon and she is VERY nervous.   

I appreciate all you prayers.

Thanks so much,

Liza

I beg your prayers, once again!  My sister, Anya, has a meeting in the "office" at 10 a.m. this morning.

She will be told the status of her employment with her company.

May it be God's will that that she retains her current employment.

Once, again....please pray for my sister and her family.

She has joined the ranks of the unemployed.

I know God works in mysterious ways...and always for the good....but, may the "good" reveal itself sooner, than later.

Please pray that God give her strength, because she is all tears, at the moment, as am I.

Oh Liza, I am so sorry!! These are difficult times, in many ways. Let us try not to despair, but cast our burdens upon Him, Who careth for us. Life is indeed so difficult, so full of suffering. I pray the Lord will help your sister and work miracles in her life when she is least expecting it!

I request your prayers, yet again! 

My sister Anya, who lost her job, has an interview this coming Monday.

Please pray that she does well, says the right things, impresses the interviewers and gets the job! 
(I'm not asking for a LOT!   ;)  )

Please, Lord, grant her this job!

Thank you all for your ongoing prayers!

Brothers and Sisters!

I just wanted to thank you all for your kind prayers on behalf of my sister.

Yesterday, was her first day at her new job.  While she is stressed, due to lack of training, she survived.
I am sure it will get better as she learns the ropes.

Please, pray that she loves this job and the job loves her!

Glory be to God for all things!

God bless you all for your kindness towards me and mine!
