Praised be Jesus Christ – now and forever praised! I am happy to write with this (still anonymous) praise report.
The Shea Army came through with their prayers for intercession. I have secured some long-term part-time work which will ease the present burden substantially. It also offers the luxury of being personally meaningful and rewarding. The offer came in the midst of a few minor victories, as well, and so I am very, very grateful to have received God’s assistance so openly in recent weeks.
Thank you for posting my request to CAEI and for the prayers of you and your readers. They have born wonderful fruit.
Thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus Christ for answered prayers. And thank you guys for praying for this person.
Speaking of which, another reader writes:
Would you kindly enlist your army of prayer warriors? I work for a diocese, and for my job, I needed to do a fair amount of (very expensive) continuing education. This education was paid for by student loans in my name, which the diocese will ultimately reimburse me for.The difficulty is that with one income and a growing family, the burden (specifically the tax burden) of what appeared to be a “good deal” is making things difficult and frightening for my family. Despite being very frugal, we will have some tough decisions to make, and worry about providing a sound financial future for our family while working for the Church.
I know there are many others with much greater financial hardships, but it still weighs heavily.
Father, hear our prayer that this family’s financial needs can be supplied and that he can get the education he needs to serve you as you will. Mother Mary, St. Joseph, and St. Thomas Aquinas pray for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
