Prayers for Sister
« on: November 06, 2009, 07:05:31 PM »
Please say a prayer for my sister. She has an interview at a NYC hospital next week. As she is currently (unhappily) living in Richmond, working in NYC would be a dream come true for her.

Her name is Gloria.

Thank you!

Lord, have mercy on Gloria and grant her a successful interview.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Done.  I hope she gets the job, unless Our Lord has something even better in mind for her. :-)

Please keep her in your prayers today; she will be traveling from Richmond, VA to Edison, NJ this evening and the weather is not in her favor. Also, the poor girl tried to dye her hair brown last night and it came out blue:o

Needless to say, she's having a rough start to a weekend already filled with anticipation and anxiety!

Thanks so much!

Blue?

How do you get blue from brown dye?  Poor thing.

We'll keep your blue haired Sis in our prayers!

Hey, I got orange once out of black hair dye.

Anyway, God keep Thy handmaiden free from all harm as she travels forth and give her confidence to interview successfully.  Lord, have mercy.

I've been thinking of your sister in my free moments - do you know how it went with her yet?

Thank you all for your prayers.

Thank God for small miracles, after a bottle of hair dye she is once again a brunette.  :D

In regards to the Interview, she met with the Recruiter today only to be told she won't have an interview at the hospital because the woman who's supposed to interview her is on vacation. So now they must reschedule the interview for another day, and my sister will have to drive all the way from Virginia to NYC AGAIN for another interview.  >:(

She said that based on the comments the Recruiter made regarding salary, she's not sure the job would even be worth taking, as they didn't seem anxious to give her a salary increase, even though she would be moving from Virginia to NYC. (For our International readers, the cost of living in Virginia is very cheap, the cost of living in NYC is VERY expensive!)

So, please keep her in prayer, that God's will may be done.

Thanks again!

In XC,

Maureen
