Asking prayers for Anna, whose good deed at work was misconstrued by management, and might cost her job.

Lord, have mercy on her and open management's eyes so they understand that no "wrong" was done.

Lord, have mercy!

Lord, have mercy on Anna, and also on management, who may be caught on the horns of a dilemma.

When these things happen, I think about the lord our Savior Jesus Christ, without any sin and hung for our sins, not his or just those who were there at that time.

It always seems to help me understand as wicked as we are , he still loves us , and the tests he gives are always bearable.
