Default Prayers needed that I keep my job...

Through no ones fault of my own, I messed up big time at my job. I am beyond mortified to see what tomorrow is going to bring my way. I am petrified about what this could mean for my family as I have a wife and 3 kids.. I could use every ounce of pray y’all throw my way, please. Anything is most appreciated..

Fingers crossed and prayers up. Not sure what you did and you for sure don’t have to tell, but man. Mistakes happen.

If it was an honest mistake, just go straight in and own it. Might get another chance.

Prayers sent for you.

God, we come together in prayer for this man and his family. We ask for your strength, comfort, perseverance, and supernatural guidance, protection, and provision for him during this difficult time. That he feels your comforting hand on his shoulder as he deals with whatever comes his way, and that those he works for can find understanding and forgiveness. Praying all this through your son, our mighty Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

Happened to me about 8 months ago. I did the same thing you did. I told my boss the truth and told him nobody but me was responsible for what happened. It actually turned out to be a communication error in one of our PLC's, but nonetheless. I still feel the man up stairs came to bat for me.
I feel like he will do the same for you. You're obviously an honest man, and good things come to honest men.
If things don't work out that way, it could very well be what is actually best for you.
All that said, I will say a prayer for you and your family man. Keep your head up, this will work out for the best.

I was in the same situation last year brother. COVID was starting to become really serious and I had a lot on my mind with trying not to catch it and give it to my wife who has an autoimmune disease. Long story short I was distracted and made a huge mistake. I was honest about everything that was going on and what I was having to deal with at that moment with a contractor and they kept me around because I was honest about the whole situation. Make sure your story is straight and your honest about what happened. Honesty goes a long way. Prayers for you that all goes well. Mistakes happen we just have to learn from them and grow. God has his plan you just have to role with it.

Good luck and prayers up for a good outcome. Telling the truth, owning up for responsibility and doing the right thing hopefully let’s you get out in front of this issue.
The company I retired from would terminate you almost immediately if you were caught in a lie trying to cover a mistake up. In other situations I have seen where an honest mistake cost millions (extreme example) and other type issues but by taking responsibility owing up to the mistake it worked out for the person.

The fact that you took responsibility and ownership of the mistake speaks volumes. Most employees these days refuse to do so and mgmt hopefully will appreciate that - I would.

Good luck.

Somebody forgot to clear their G54 sounds like, how far into the run were you when you realized? Let me guess, customer provided material too. Hope things work out for you man. Worst case you can come take my job. I'm sick and tired of running cast iron anyway.
