I have been a watcher at the Five Doves site since 1998. Typically my day starts by reading the letters that have been posted. They are the strength and hope that sustain me through the day. However hope and strength are fading, and I turn to you my brothers and sisters, to ask for your fervent and sincere prayers.
Since January I have been without a secure job. In July I interviewed for a position, I received an interview, but despite my hopes and prayers, I did not get the posting. This was the first time ever that I had interviewed and not received an offer. In the days that followed, I felt completely lost.
Once again I am in a similar position. It is my understanding that I have been shortlisted for a job. I ask you, my brothers and sisters for your prayers. I ask that you may pray that I get an interview, and that I may be hired as the successful candidate. May your prayers call out to our Lord Jesus Christ that I may be hired for the opportunity that is presently before me.
I have lived through difficult times, but 2010 has been a year of exceptional challenge. On March 1st my mom passed away. I have been unemployed for most of the year. Financially I am broken, and have put the family house up for sale that we get through this crisis. I feel empty, hopeless, discouraged, and my faith is fading.
God The Father blessed me with parents who provided me a university education. I am skilled at what I do, I have excellent references, and up until now, I have had a successful career. However, over the last three years, I have seen everything slip slowly away. I seek prayers not only to find a job, but prayers also that I may have the strength and courage to get through this time of testing.
A brother in Christ.
