Prayer 666

The prayer series

Jesus,

Although Jonah was sorrowful when he was in the whale,
perhaps he also was sorrowful when he lived in Nineveh.

Refusing to follow the will of God is sorrowful.
Following the will of God is sorrowful, too.

Poor Jonah.

Jesus,

Please comfort poor souls.

Amen.

The requests that textile factory manager Huynh Thi Ai Diem receives are almost always the same: A foreign company is desperately trying to relocate production from China to Vietnam. Tariffs imposed by the U.S. have eaten away their profit margin. Can she help?

Huynh would like nothing more but is swift to provide a reality check.
