Dear Friends in Christ,
Please pray for me tomorrow.
As some of you know, I was laid off from my much beloved job as a research reader 34 months ago, due to lack of work. I thought I would never see this job advertised again, because of the decline in the print media.
Finally, after two years of fruitless job hunting ( I’m 55 now), I finally asked God for my job back. I didn’t expect God to answer me. The very next day, there was my job open and advertized. I am the only person in Seattle who is actually trained to do this weird and wonderful job. I applied to the main office in San Francisco, as directed, but never heard a word back. Could be that the person sorting the resumes and cover letters was only looking for college educated folks and tossed me aside. I was the only person ever hired as a reader who didn’t have a finished degree. But, I never knew.
A new reader, if he/she lasts past the initial two weeks, will usually quite at 6 months, because of the strange conditions underwhich we work–one being absolute silence for 8 hours a day.
Here it is, exactly 7 months to the day, and the ad for my position pops up again. Only, this time the ad tells to send the resume to the Manager, not the boss in SF. I am scared to death, but have decided that since I will be in town tomorrow, to boldly walk into my old office and hand the manager my resume.
I pray I will be given my job back. At least, if the answer is “no,” I pray that I will have the strength to get myself back home safely. I pray that I don’t fall into shards of broken glass. It will be a very humbling experience, either way.
Please pray for me. I know I have asked you all to pray for me so many times before, but I need your prayers for tomorrow. I am very scared. I will let you know what happened.
Thank you for all your past prayers, and future prayers.
