Prayers for work
« on: April 18, 2010, 04:46:33 PM »
I could use prayers that God's will be done in my life.  I'm trying to find work and could really use some help, especially by the prayers of St Xenia of St Petersburg.

Thanks.

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.

Thanks be to God, I've managed to secure a short-term solution.  I still need prayers that a more viable position will be found, since this won't last forever, but it's enough to save me for now.  Thanks, everyone!

I am back to needing prayers.  My short term solution was good while it lasted, but I'm out of work again and the job market is terrible.  

Also, the short term job hasn't sent me my last paycheck yet, and my bank account is getting scary.  It feels like I can't leave the house without having to spend money I need to hang onto.  So I stay inside a lot, and I feel isolated and lonely.

Also, I had a small accident that caused some inadvertent property damage.  The damages are going to take another hit on my bank account.  The waiting to know how big of a hit this will take is killing me.  

Please pray for me.
