Prayer for employment & encouragement

by Patricia (Singapore)

I need prayers for finding a new job. I moved overseas from the US about 5 months ago for a teaching opportunity. I was told how bad the school was but decided to come anyway because I was scared I wouldn’t find a job in the US with the ongoing employment crisis.

I’m not sure if it was in God’s will for me to come here but I guess it wasn’t because I was just told that they decided to terminate my contract for no real reason. However, it could just be part of God’s will to help my character. It has been so difficult working at this school and I have had to work nearly all the time since I got here.

They have been firing almost the entire staff for no reasons so I know I am a good teacher but I feel discourage regardless. I just graduated and this was my first teaching job so I’m very concerned that I won’t be able to get another job now because most schools only want teachers with at least two years experience.

Please pray for me to find a job at a better school, for encouragement, motivation, a positive outlook, my faith to be increased, and for God’s will to be done in my life. Thank you for the support.
