Hi

I am worried I am not doing my job well, so I would like prayer that I do better rather than being considered for firing or anything.

Also, there are some situations at home and for one of my friends whose dad might be alcoholic.

Thank you.

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.

May God have mercy on you and your family.  May His angels of protection be with you in all you do.  Here's a nice prayer for times like this:

A PRAYER IN TIME OF TROUBLE

O God, our help and assistance, who art just and merciful, and who heareth the supplications of thy people; look down upon me, a miserable sinner, have mercy upon me, and deliver me from this trouble that besets me, for which, I know, I am deservedly suffering. I acknowledge and believe, O Lord, that all trials of this life are given for our chastisement, when we drift away from thee, and disobey thy commandments; deal not with me after my sins, but according to thy bountiful mercies, for I am the work of thy hands, and thou knowest my weakness. Grant me, I beseech thee, thy divine helping grace, and endow me with patience and strength to endure my tribulations with complete submission to thy Will. Thou knowest my misery and suffering and to thee, my only hope and refuge, I flee for relief and comfort; trusting to thine infinite love and compassion, that in due time, when thou knowest best, thou wilt deliver me from this trouble, and turn my distress into comfort, when I shall rejoice in thy mercy, and exalt and praise thy Holy Name, O Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

I am terminated. They are not dissatisfied with me as an employee, however, my skill level requires more training than they are able to provide at this time. I am leaving on good terms. I am also leaving. I have never had a job this brief before.

My Grandma would've said, "God must have a better job in store for you".  Keep your head up!  Things will get better.  Smiley
