Debra Gillgrass
A Prayer for strength in troubled times

Prayers for strength, guidance, patience, & forgiveness.

My current job position ends on the 21st of December, yes I'm angry, I am being the fall guy for my boss and it's undeserving. I am asking for prayers to stay strong, have forgiveness, keep my tongue, and find a new job. I am a single women, I live alone and I am asking for your prayers.

My prayer for you is that you not worry about what happen with your job. Everything in life is a setup. GOD is taking you to another level. Get ready for a blessing.

I understand how you feel, I lost my job of 23 years on Jan 5, 2001. I finally found a job 11/5/01 making $6.75 per hour which is half of what I was making. I am still thankful because I know that I will be blessed with a good paying job. Sometimes God allows things to happen for a reason. Keep your head up and trust God to supply all your needs. God supplied money for me to pay my bills all year and he is continuing to supply all my needs. Remeember God can open a door that nobody can close and close a door that no one can open. Read I Chronicles 4: 9-10 daily and you will see a change.

May God continue to bless and keep you.

Dearest Debra:
I am sure you are feeling the effect of the numerous prayers being sent your way. I sense your anger over this situation therefore I shall pray that God's fairness shall prevail in your life. He is in deed placing you on a higher plane. Don't worry about your bills. They SHALL be paid. In Jesus Mighty name.This need for prayer came to my eye at a time when I was having my own"pity party". It immediately took my mind off of me and gained peace and strength to pray for you.God has this situation and your heart under control. Trust Him and watch things change. God bless you.

Dearest Debra,
Life is about choice and you have a choice to make right now. To choose to feel a victum, allow hurt, anger consume you. These negative thoughts will only produce more and block new goodness from coming into your life. Remember, whatever you send out comes back multiplied, this is a Law. As difficult as it may seem, work on release of your boss/the situation. I know how hard it is to do so, but you must step out in faith and trust that good is unfolding in your life. This year, I was betrayed in business, by a friend, a large sum of money was taken from me, I was laid off in similiar circumstances. I too have a choice, to live in the negative..or rise above it.
Focus on the good in your life, see not what was taken from you, but the new opportunities you now have, the new opportunities for growth. When people get pushed off a cliff there is the obvious fear of falling, but did you ever think you now have the opportunity to fly. Imagine, a New Year, a new opportunity for growth, new people..and they will all come..if you let them. You let them by letting go of negative feelings. God is opening a window where beauty awaits you. Fear is your enemy. Love is your mightest sword to face the future. God Bless You. Trust in God, and in yourself. And remember, you have just been pushed out of the nest, remember you have the ability to fly.

HI, Debra

Many things don't seem fair, and maybe they are not;

There are many approaches that you could take----

(1) There is something much better and satisfying waiting for you down the road; when one door closes, another opens; you might not have made a move were it not for this unfair action------

(2) You may have legal grounds---call your local Bar Association and ask for a legal reference---it will be cheap and it will give you a direction--------you don't have to be a victim------maybe your state does have legal remedies-----maybe it does not---at least you will know---

(3) Ask God what to do-----sit quietly by yourself and listen to your inner voice-----mediatte ---and you will get an answer---maybe through other people---maybe a phone call--maybe an intuition---there will be an answer--often in an unexpected and happily surprising form----

My prayer is that God gives you strength and clear guidance and chases away your fears and replaces them with healing and with trust.

The New Year is coming-------I hope it is a wonderful one for you, and believe it or not, this painful time maybe nothing but a blur at some point, especially if you are blessed with something more satisfying and fulfilling------and oh, tes, ask that whatever messages you get and whatever direction you take is God's will for you and the best and highest good for all concerned. I pray that this is what happens for you.

Kindest regards,

May God be with you at this difficult time, and hope you have a better New Year!

Dear God give her strength during this difficult time. Give her the grace of being able to forgive her boss, and may this be a blessed new year for you, Debra. Mary our mother, bless and watch over her. In the name of Jesus! Amen.

I just lost my job 2 week ago. I am single mom of 2 kids. I asked God for his help and 3 days later, I got a much better job and I do not start until after the Holidays. For the first time in many years, I can really enjoy Christmas with my kids.
Keep your head up and just wait. Something good out there is waiting for you.

Debra, I, too, lost my job this past May. I had been praying what should I do. The job I was at was hard and way too hot in the summer. I couldn't see another hot summer there. I'd been praying what to do. I didn't know where to go. God shut that door in the form of a layoff. I did go through my depression time. I found that even the temp services didn't have jobs either. It was a long summer. Eventually, realizing that this would be a perfect time for me to start substituting for the school teachers or some kind of work in the school system because I have a young child to provide for. I applied for everything the school offered. Finally, my background check came back and I started getting calls from the schools. This work allows me to spend more time with my son and I don't need daycare for him which even with some help is still rather expensive when you're alone to take care of everything. I have found that I don't need as much money that I thought I did. The most important thing is that I again got the opportunity to see God at work on my behalf. He, as always, sees to our every need. Our church family has been such a blessing as well as our blood family. God is so good to us. He never leaves us alone; He is always with us. My prayer now is that my husband can come home. God has allowed us each some growing time. I used to tell him that when he comes home that I'm going to do something with the school and not have to work so hard. Now I tell him that I've done my part; it's time for him to do his (my husband).
My prayer for you is that you can relieve your bitterness and accept it as being God working in your life and you'll find the situation to be much sweeter. Let God help you to go on to where you need to be rather than dwelling in what is. Look for the good, sweet blessings He's offering you. I pray for you peace in your heart as you go to another place. Sometimes, change is very good. :)

I pray that you have peace. God knows your situation. He will get you a better job. Lord help Debra to have patience. Amen.

Dear Debra,

I too lost my job once due to unfair termination. Like you I was upset and angry over what happened. But God let things happen for a reason. Within 2 mths, I got my existing job and met my husband. It's a blessing in disguise. We now have two wonderful children and I thank God for the change.

Have faith in him and God will show you the way!

12/27/2001 11:16

Dear Jesus, Please help Debra through this hard time. Please help her find a job that is right for her, where she will be happy and feel needed and appreciated. Please help her forgive her ex-boss and those who wronged her. Please let her know that You are watching her and keeping her in you care always. In Jesus Name, AMEN.

12/28/2001 12:15

Debra, just remember that all things work together for the best when you put your trust in God. I pray that you can overcome your anger and move forward, trusting in God's promises. Have faith--you will find a job, and in the meantime you have a lot of people praying for you! God bless.

Debra, God is watching and he knows the true situation. He will provide for you, never doubt him. We usually don't know his plan up front for our lives. I pray that he will reveal himself to you in this time. God will answer your prayers and bless you indeed.
