Prayers for job...
« on: April 25, 2006, 11:12:18 AM »
I am currently not happy at my current job and would appreciate any prayers for God's will in either finding a new one or making my current situation more bearable.  It's more complicated than I'm making it sound, but the stress is really getting to me.

Lord, have mercy.
Quote
"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

May God help you! Lord, have mercy. Prayers to St. Xenia of St. Petersburg help in such situations (job search).

Yup.  She certainly helped me find work and learn patience during my recent 4-month layoff.

Lord, have mercy.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
