For employment and peace of mind.
« on: May 09, 2016, 11:58:15 AM »
I finished up graduate school in December and have had no luck in finding employment.  I treat my search as a full time job but it has been in vain.  I really took a risk in getting out of my previous field so I could get into one I enjoy more.  Please pray that a good opportunity will come my way very soon.  I'm filled with depression and my confidence is pretty low too.

In an unrelated matter, I ask you pray that I can have some peace of mind regarding another issue that I won't go into.  Let's just say it's something I have no control over at the moment. 

I hope you'll take a minute to pray for me even though I'm unworthy.  Haven't been to liturgy in over a year and can't really even tell you why.  Anyway, thanks in advance for anyone willing to do this for me.

Hi Amartolos,

Please pray daily to St Xenia Petersburg--an amazing and very, very miraculous saint for matters of employment in our day and in her day (1700's).

Here is her Akathistos to pray:

Be strong and don't give up on prayer, sometimes, despite all earthly efforts, for those who are committed believers, it is the only thing we can do that will give a breakthrough on a problem. Trust in God and have faith in the powerful intercessions of this awesome saint! Prayer is always the answer, according to His will, ofcourse.

In Christ,
Alice



Most holy Mother of God, pray for us!

Update:  I have been interviewing for job in what is a most unusual circumstance.  It really is the perfect position with a good salary and exactly what I wanted to get into in my field but didn't think I'd be able to find one at my experience level just yet.  Please continue your prayers as it would be an amazing opportunity.  The downside is I'll have to be far away from my immediate family which I never have been before.  Although I already expected I would have to move far away, I'm feeling a bit "flooded".  I pray God will calm my anxiety over all of this.

Thank you for your continuing prayers!

Wanted to update but also to add.  Thankfully I did get this job.  I didn't update until because I've been busy moving and had to request another prayer.  This time for my father with whom I am very close.  A suspected growth was found on his x-ray for his lung.  Please pray for him.

God be praised you got the job. As for your father:

Come, my Light, and illumine my darkness. Come, my Life, and revive me from death. Come, my Physician, and heal my wounds. Come, Flame of divine love, and burn up the thorns of my sins, kindling my heart with the flame of Your love. Come, my King, sit upon the throne of my heart and reign there. For You alone are my King and my Lord. Amen.
אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה

For the Christian life is nothing if it is not a struggle against the spirit of every age for the sake of eternity." - Fr Seraphim Rose
