Prayers for hiring a new counselor.
« on: September 16, 2015, 01:21:38 AM »
Please pray for me as I seek to hire a new Substance Abuse Counselor for the treatment program I supervise. I thought I had it all tied up yesterday. Made an offer, it was accepted, and I withdrew it all within an hour or two. The applicant omitted something major from the interview which we only found out about by accident.

To make matters more tense my boss has suggested I  need to hire within the next week or so because after that there could, though not absolutely will be, a hiring freeze until at least the end of the year. I don't currently have any good applicants in back up. Lord, have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord, have mercy.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

I will pray for you.
May I ask what route you are taking when posting your job position and trying to find a new candidate? I have 15 years' experience in recruiting, though not in your specific area.
