Asking for Prayers for new job opportunities
« on: April 06, 2010, 01:48:36 PM »
I humbly ask for prayers that I might gain favor from God and get a better opportunity to provide for my family. After losing my job a year ago I found another one but it paid much less than what I was making. We've made do with what we had and we were thankful to God. Recently my current job did a pay reduction of 7% across the board and it is challenging to make ends meet. Recently some jobs have come about with larger companies with better pay and benefits for my family. I think it would be wise for me to pursue these jobs for the good of my family. So I ask for your prayers.

Thank you.
St Basil the Great (330-379 A.D.): “I think then that the one goal of all who are really and truly serving the Lord ought to be to bring back to union the churches who have at different times and in diverse manners divided from one another.”

Lord, have mercy!
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord, direct the steps of this, Thy servant, to the job that is best for him and his family.  Blessed St. Xenia of St. Petersburg, speedy helper of those seeking empolyment, pray for Ignatius and his situation.  Amen.
