Possible job

Dear friends,

I beg for your prayers in a very serious matter.  I haven't been able to work for a long time, and it has had very drastic effects on my life.  However, I've recently found a job opening that would be absolutely perfect, and allow me to get to Liturgy regularly and everything.  I'm on pins and needles about it. If you would pray that God's will is done, I would be very grateful.  Thank you.
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.

Lord, have mercy!  let your will alone be done in the lives of your servents!
"At the Last Judgment I will not be asked whether I satisfactorily practiced asceticism, nor how many bows I have made before the divine altar. I will be asked whether I fed the hungry, clothed the naked, visited the sick, and the prisoner in his jail. That is all I will be asked." - Sv. Maria Skobotsova

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.
