Herb E

This is a request for prayers from a husband and father who is presently unemployed and whose family is experiencing financial hardship. Through collective prayers, the Lord may help him find employment or a source of income for him and his family

Please pray for me that I may find a job and/or a source of income to support my family and that I may be able to pay off all my debts, which is putting a lot of strain to my whole family. I have been unemployed for several months already. We have difficulty meeting our daily needs including supporting the studies of my daughter, who is in college. My creditors have been pressuring me to pay my debts, but I was unable to settle these financial obligations. May God bless you for your concern and prayers.

God be with you, Herb. If you are still unemployed,let us share our testimonial with you: My husband, an accountant, was fired from a lower paying job for refusing to do illegal things when the company was in bankrupcy. He was 50 years old, was given many interviews, but because of his age, companies always went with the younger guy. We had $30,000.00 in debts and $5,000.00 in the bank. It was gone in a few months. We also had a 15 year old son at home and several grandchildren needing help. I prayed every morning, every church service, every chance I had. I lost true faith many times, but I went on saying the words. It was all I knew to do, and real faith eventually would came back. My mother rents a modest cabin at a lake. One morning I went out to the lake and stood there casting my fishing pole, praying. The money in the bank was gone and unemployment combined with my pay would not cover the monthly payment on our debts. I did not ask God for a job that day. I just surrendered. I said, " Please take over all of this Lord, because I can't do this anymore." I didn't feel any different and I went on with my morning.
But 2:00 that day, my husband was left a message on his machine that a company in a near by city wanted to interview him. He called and they ask if he could come right in. He interviewed at 4:00 and was offered a job 6:00PM at twice his former. As you may be so painfully aware of, this is NEVER how hiring is done. You interview, reinterview, get the "we"ll let you know" deal, but it never goes like this. Except when God's in charge. May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ rest upon you during these horrid times. Your miracle awaits you, too. From Karen

Many thanks Karen for your prayers and inspiring message which is full of warmth and compassion from a fellow Christian and child of God.

Indeed, persevering in prayers, our Almighty Father through His only son, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, has answered me. I just received a job offer from my former boss. Not only this. I also received another job offer from a former employer. God really works in mysterious ways. And His blessings are abundant and overflowing. I'm in a quandary which job to take. But really the Lord will direct me which path to take because I believe in Proverbs 3:5-6 which says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths."

Please open your prayer circle "Diane E" for my other message.

Again, thank you for your prayers. God bless you, your husband and family as well as your friends including Diane E.
