Passing a variable from shell script to mysql query?

I heard this was possible but from my research I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Seems it should be simple enough. Basically from a high level view I'm trying to accomplish...

. $X='grep foo blah.log'
then 'mysql command SELECT foo FROM bar WHERE ' . $X
or something like that.

This is part of my script:

cid=$(awk '{ print $2 }' /home/test.txt | sed -n 2p)
echo "cid is" $cid
cat /home/my2.sql | /home/build/env/util/ biller > /home/test2.txt
cat /home/test2.txt
In the my2.sql file:

select * from Notifications join Events using (EventId) where CustomerId = '&cid';
Any suggestions? Possible? If so what am I doing wrong?

in my2.sql put

$query = "select * from Notifications join Events using (EventId) where CustomerId = '$cid'";
I don't understand how you want to do this; but from me guessing it might be like so

cid=$(awk '{ print $2 }' /home/test.txt | sed -n 2p)
echo "cid is" $cid
. /home/my2.sql
echo $query | /home/build/env/util/ biller > /home/test2.txt
cat /home/test2.txt
Maybe something along those lines will work
