Hello you all:

If you would be so kind, please pray for my wife<Katherine>as she is to go to a job interview this afternoon for a librarians position with the school system. She is one of 4 folks being interviewed. She is presently a teacher but needs to get out of that field due to her health. Thank you.

In Christ:
Converted Viking

Prayers for Katherine through the intercessions of the very miraculous and wonderful saint, St. Xenia of Petersburg, Fool for Christ, who grants the answers to many prayers of the faithful (both when she was alive in the 1700's and through the centuries) for those seeking employment in their fields.


O HOLY AND MOST BLESSED MOTHER XENIA,
who lived under the protection of the Most High and
were strengthened by the Mother of God, and who en-dured
hunger and thirst, cold and burning heat, oppres-sion
and persecution: You have received from God the gift
of clairvoyance and the power to work miracles, and you
rest under the shelter of the Almighty. The Holy Church
now glorifies you as a fragrant blossom.

Praying before your holy icon, we ask you, as one who is alive and with us:
Accept our petitions, and offer them up before the throne
of the loving Father of heaven; and, since you have boldness
before Him, for those who have recourse unto you ask
eternal salvation, compassionate blessing upon our good
works and undertakings, and deliverance from all misfor-tunes
and sorrows. In your holy supplications before our
most merciful Savior, intercede for us, the unworthy and
sinful.

O holy and blessed Mother Xenia, help our children
to receive illumination by the light of holy baptism and the
seal of the gift of the Holy Spirit; raise our youths and
maidens in faith, honesty, and the fear of God, and grant
them success in their studies; heal the infirm; send down
love and concord upon families; account monastics worthy
to fight the good fight and protect them from oppression;
make our pastors steadfast in the might of the Holy Spirit;
preserve the Orthodox faithful in peace and tranquility;
and pray for those who at the hour of their death are
deprived of the communion of the Holy Mysteries of
Christ.

You are our trust and hope, speedily hearkening to
us and delivering us, Unto you do we send up thanks, and
with you do we glorify the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages.
Amen.

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Prayers for Katherine's success in the interview

I am catching up on old posts. One of these days I will have a better handle on this boards software. blush Kathy did not get the job but that is OK. She is fine with teaching though just a bit burned out.

In Christ:

Praise God that she presently has a job, though not perhaps the one she wants right now, and trust in Him that He knows what is best for us at all given times...

Sounds like she has talents the little ones need for now. Let your glory shine through her Jesus, so that children may hear you and be converted. God bless all the teachers everywhere.
