Dear Lord,

 

A is only in her 2nd year teaching + her position is unstable due to funding cuts + low seniority. Plus, there are political issues going on. She worked so hard to get a Master's Degree in her field + she is uncertain what will happen. I pray she can get + keep a good job in  her field + that You will bless it. May she seek Your guidance at all times  + follow Your direction.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

I know You have A's best interests at heart + have given her hope + a future. May she always seek Your guidance in every area of her life. May she make time to have an active relationship with You via prayer + studying Your Word. 

 

I esp. pray for direction in her career.Things look unstable right now but You are in control. May she be able to get a secure job in her field that meets her financial needs. TY for providing an interim job for her at this time.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Gracious Heavenly Father:

 

Thank You for the many ways you have prepared A for her career.  May the employment she desires open up for her and may she have many years to fulfill the career You placed in her heart so many years ago.  May she have good, fair wages and good benefits.  Thank You for watching over her.  All glory is Yours.  We praise and thank You.  In Jesus's loving, healing name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

Massive cuts are being made to the community college system in our city-over 70 teachers may lose their jobs. Our new governor cut funding to higher ed, plus the chancellor says enrollment is down. Even so, they are continuing with a multi-million dollar project that they do not have the money for.

 

This is only A's 2nd year teaching. Her field is unique so it's unclear whether that will hurt or help. I pray that if this door closes on her career, another one will open very quickly. She worked so long + hard to get where she is. It's hard enough to break into academia as it is.

 

I also pray for the other professors whose jobs are at risk. Provide a way for them to stay employed. The college wants to double their class sizes, which will be extremely difficult for them + the students.

 

Please resolve this issue. I know You are with A + will make a way for her in some capacity.

 

The college board will meet 11/14 to make a decision. Give them wisdom.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

I pray earnestly for deliverance in this case so A will be able to  keep her job. The chancellor at the college where she teaches won't even meet with the professors, who voted to unionize 3 years ago- he is blocking + stalling + there is a culture of intimidation of teachers there. It is ridiculous for a professional organization to behave in this way.

 

Ideally, I'd like for her to find a FT job with benefits at a different university. It is hard to break into academia these days, + her field is very specialized. Plus, the political climate makes it even more tenuous. I know You will use this situation to bring about good; we just can't see it. May she not get discouraged. TY that she has a few other transferable skills that will help her if she has to seek employment elsewhere. I just hate for her to have to do that when she's spent so much time + money on getting 2 degrees.

 

I will keep praying, but trust You to use this for her benefit.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

I cont. to pray for job security for A. The community college board met today + made some decisions but the meeting was very disrupted by protesters + no one knows what was decided yet. It is such a shame that there is so much division.

 

A doesn't know anything yet. I pray she will be able to cont. to work at least until she can find something better.

 

I know You hold her in the palm of Your hand, + no matter how bad things look, You will open a door for her. Help her to remain calm + trust You, + keep praying.

 

Thank You for what You are doing.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

Up to 95 faculty + staff were to have gotten their jobs cut at the community college. Everyone was supposed to have received notice by 12/15. A hasn't heard anything yet about her position. Her field is unique + she is only part-time, so we don't know what to think.

 

Enrollment at the community college has been down, + she barely had the minimum # of students to hold fall classes. If there isn't a certain # of students, the class will be dropped. It will be a few weeks before she knows if she has enough students for spring classes. It is a very uncertain way to live.

 

You have given her many skills + talents, + I'm sure You'll find something for her if her position is cut or she loses classes due to insufficient enrollment.  But it has to be anxiety-provoking for her.

 

May she talk to You about this + all her cares + joys often. Keep reminding her that she belongs to You. Never let her forget it, + never let her fall away.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

Praises + thanks to You that A's job was not cut. 95 people at the community college lost their jobs. She's still at risk bc enrollment is down + she barely had enough students to keep her classes open this fall. May there be no problems with keeping future classes from getting canceled. May there be sufficient enrollment + may the chancellor not decide on another round of cuts. 

 

If possible, I pray she can teach at the other university for the summer as she did this past July-August. Please open a door to a better job with benefits + fair pay.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY that it sounds like the college voted to give teaching contracts to adjunct professors. A has not heard yet whether the chancellor will really act on this or not. I pray that the extended strike of teachers in W VA will give him pause.

 

I also pray for job security for A + Marty. She is only PT + it is hard to make ends meet. They are being very careful in planning their wedding as cheaply as possible, + I am very thankful that they agree on financial matters. Not doing so can cause such a rift in a marriage. I also TY for his easygoing nature. 

 

I know You put A where she is job-wise. May she flourish there + may it lead to FT employment either there or in a good environment. Colleges are getting so liberal these days it is very alarming. I don't want her exposed to ideologies that flout Your commandments but they're already being blasted into our ears 24/7. May she never be deceived, nor Marty either.

 

TY for all You have done for us.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

I cont. to pray for job security for A. May she get FT hrs with benefits + a salary commensurate with her education + skills.

 

If poss., may she get to teach at the other university this summer again.

 

Bless her relationships with everyone she works with, her boss, + the teaching community. May she be able to network for a better job.

 

TY that she is able to work in her field. TY for providing for her needs.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY again that A at least has a part-time job in her field. May she hear back soon from the university where she taught a summer class last year. May she be able to teach there again.

 

She also applied to another university but has not heard back. I pray for whatever is best for her in this matter.

 

May the community college offer the adjunct professors a contract, better pay, benefits, + more hours.

 

TY for providing for all her needs. 

 

Remind her always that she belongs to You, + keep Your Spirit stirring in her heart. May she pray often + rely on You for everything.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Gracious Heavenly Father:

 

We thank You for the blessings of teachers.  May A find that special employment that You have waiting for her.  May it come with benefits and secure employment.  Guide her as she seeks to find that special employment.  May her application fall upon the right desk.  May this person give A a chance to fulfill that which she is trained to do.  

 

We join all prayers for A.  We thank You for her skill and her knowledge.  

 

All glory is Yours.  We praise and thank You.  In Jesus's loving, healing name, amen.
