Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, - I would like to ask for prayers to find a job and to pass a competition of librarian this year. May the Lord help me to be as productive as possible, to have the best methods. I also pray to earn more money and thus know a certain financial stability, or even a new job. May he do a miracle! - I would like to pray for the restoration of my marriage, so that my wife and myself let us live in communion with Christ, in fasting and prayer, so that the Holy Spirit may guide both of us and stop our quarrels, especially in the morning. That he gives us gifts of the Spirit like that of prophecy and praying in tongues and our ministries. I would also like to address a prayer for having healthy and holy sex and that we can make love more often. I wish we could find a good church where to go both and make Christian friends. That my wife can recognize my work in Christ that she can find faith and trust in God.
