He is a lighting salesperson and due to the present economy and lack of construction he is barely making an income. He has just been contacted by a lighting company who is seeking to employ someone with his skills. He will be submitting a resume to be considered for the position.
    Please pray that the position be offered to him if it is the Lord's will. Please pray to Mary, the Saints and the Angels to intercede for this important need. Our trust is in the Lord and we have great faith in the power of prayer.
