Joe & Gayle A
Unemployed - Struggling Financially

The company that this couple worked for shut down on November 30, 2001. Joe & Gayle are struggling financially.

Since being laid off, this couple, is having a hard time paying the mortgage and keeping up with their bills. Gayle is getting depressed and struggles with maintaining good spirits. She does not want her two children (ages 10 & 3) to see her in a state of depression. Joe is in need of medications and they can not afford the COBRA insurance payments. They lost their health care coverage when they were laid off. Please pray for this family, they are in need of our prayers.

Joe and Gayle,

I understand what you are going through. I myself, who has been the sole breadwinner of the family before, has been out of job for 7 months already. Unpaid bills kept on piling up while we send our only daughter to college. The situation seems dark. However, we still manage to survive. I believe it is the invicible hand of our God that is at work. I thank Him for sending friends and relatives who have been very helpful to us. Sometimes, the situation become desperate and hard to handle especially for my wife. My inspiration? I always think and believe that there's a God up there who just waits for us to acknowledge our sins and ask His Divine mercy and help in all our needs. Please pray for me and my family also that we can weather this difficult period in our lives. We love you in the love of the Lord Jesus.

Dear Joe, and Gayle,
I know your situation, since my wife, and I are in exactly the same boat, and it has had catastrophic effects on us as well. The stress has exacerbated my wifes blood sugar issues into full-blown Type 2 diabetes, and both of us have experienced very high blood pressure readings. I pray that this is not so with you all, and we will pray for your situation, and for a quick, and permanent resolution. I hope y'all will pray for us as well, we've been in this mess for quite awhile, and the 9/11 attacks just made the Kansas economy worse. We've been praying for over a year now, but it seems sometimes as if we've been abandoned. I'm ex-military, and much to my wife's disapproval, I'm seriously considering going back into private covert operations, and mercenary work. We're in real bad shape, and so we know exactly what y'all are going through. If y'all are in KS, I might be able to help, since I do have an insurance license, and can get y'all some temporary major medical policies at much lower cost than COBRA. If that'll help any, I'm glad to do it. I hope God will hear your prayers, and grant y'all relief. God Bless you all.

Dear Joe & Gayle:

I know your situation, I feel very sorry for this, I have lost my job as well, I'm not earning any money at all since last year, I'm behind and delayed with my payments, totally struggling financially, I know that God will help to you and my family as well. We need to pray as much as we can. We/I need your prayers. May God bless both families with the gift of money and hapiness.

I, like many others, have been layed off from my job at a factory...It is difficult to figure out how to go on when I need meds for heart, thyroid, and anxiety attacks....I have bills past due and can barely pay the mortgage and auto payment much less take care of my family of two kids and my wife who is stressed out completely. I have had interviews with a particular place but they are draging their proverbial hiring feet to a degree that I'm loosing patience with them....I need a job now. Lord Jesus help us and provide in the way you see fit....AMEN.

Oh,God when I have food,
help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work,help me
to remember the jobless;
When Ihave a warm home,
help me to remember the homeless;
when I am with out pain,
help me to remember those who suffer;
And remembering,help me
to destroy my complacency
and bestir my compassion,
Make me concerned enough
to help, by word and deed,
those who cry out
for what we take for granted.
My God shall supply all (my) need
according to his riches in glory by
Christ Jesus.
philippians 4:19

Dear Joe & Gayle,
I hope that this post finds you past the struggle to find employment. I too am out of work and struggling to maintain the roof above my head.
I find encouragement in Matthew "6:26Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not ye of much more value then they?" and read and read it again whenever I feel hopeless.
I have started a prayer circle for all dispaced workers. My industry, Information Technology, is being hit hard by the economic downturn. Please feel free to visit
and offer a prayer of blessing for all of us who are suffering this trial.
God bless your whole family.

Heavenly Father,

Please be with this couple as they face dark days ahead. I know how they feel, since I have been going through it myself. I know you never leave us, all we have to do is call out your name. I ask Lord, that you please watch over all people who are financially in trouble. Help this couple find a good paying job and be able to get their bills caught back up.

I thank you Lord for listen to us as we pray. And answering our prayers.

Good bless.

I understand your plight. You are not alone by a long shot. Keep the faith, this too shall pass.

3/16/2003 17:00

Dear Lord, please help all of us to keep our faith in these uncertain financial times. We are all struggling and juggling with everything that we have. We two have both lost our jobs, just living day to day. Hundreds and hundreds of resumes and applications with the same result no answer, no way. Please comfort all of us here today and always. I have been on such an emotional rollercoaster along with everyone here in this prayer circle. I can tell everyone here that I had previously lost my home, I know it is a severe blow to our egos, but you do get over it. It was the most degrading time in my life. I lost it due to medical bills, I am a single mother raising my daughter on my own since she was born. Her father was and still is a full blown alcoholic. I get no help from him. I met up with the love of my life, I became pregnant and lost my baby along with one of my tubes and almost my life. The only thing that got me through this whole bad experience was my family and my small daughter, who is the only reason why I go on at times. This just caused a snow ball effect. Life had gotten very good for awhile. Me and the love of my life got together and purchased a home. We became pregnant once again, and I lost that child also. We have both lost our jobs within 6 months time. It is hard for me sometimes to cope with this, but the point is I made it through the other hurdles and I will make it through these hurdles I am being faced with. Times will get better for all of us. If we have to lose our possessions and materials, at least we still have people that love and care for us and that is what is important and God is with us through the whole ordeal. God Bless us All! He is the light of our lives.

I feel your anguish! The uncertainty being let go from a job is horrible. I'm in a similar situation. I was let go from my job when it started losing business. To this day I'm behind in my rent, utilities, and to add even more pressure, a vacation package I paid for with my tax return is coming up in two weeks and I can't afford the travel money ( for meals, taxi, stuff)!
I may even have to cancel it. Still, I will keep you in my prayers and I believe the Lord will make a way for you and all those who wrote in to your prayer request. God bless you! You will be blessed financially!

Dear God, Again my prayers to all who are going through difficult financial times due to job loss and the after effects of 9/11. Its a daily struggle not only to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table but to keep the faith that this too shall pass and we need to keep saying that to ourselves and watch for your little miracles. I know, I am still living a nightmare but I have found God to shed a light and his help to carry on for my childrens sake. God, this test after test has made us suffer yet its made me stronger and borught us closer to you. Its brings light to be grateful to make it through another day! I have no job,no car, no house, and missed vacation plans but every morning I wake up with a little prayer to survive another day and have a better tomorrow.Help us God to survive another day and work towards a better tomorrow. I pray that you may open the hearts and eyes of others who have "everything" to those in need of an opportunity to start over. God, Please guide us that way, for I know I can't have yesterday back but I have today and you can give me tomorrow with the help of the angels around us. God Bless the poor of America,AMEN

Dear Joe & Gayle,
I know this is a difficult thing to go through, especially when you both become unemployed. Just know that when one door closes, God opens a window. I know that it can be difficult to find that window but just remember that God loves you & has faith in you. So continue to lift your lives up to the Lord and have faith in His will. God bless you and help carry you through to the light at the end of this dark tunnel.

Father you said in your word that "you will supply (all) of our needs according to your riches in glory. Father we know that you own all of the riches and the land. Even now as this couple (your son & daughter) are going through these turning events please give them the peace in knowing that you will bring them out. Father we also understand that you never give us more than we are able to handle. We are victorious in everything that we are faced with. Father I ask that even in this time of need that you will raise up someone with the power and authority to help them. Father we also know that we have power in our words and that you said in your word that we are to call those things as though they are. So right now Father, I call finances, employment, peace, health insurance benefits, and everything that they need from the NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, & WEST done right now in Jesus name...

Pray with me to the Blessed Virgin Mary this prayer (never known to fail). Oh most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God; Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea help me & show me you are my Mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven & Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succour me in my necessity. (make request) There are none that can withstand your power. Oh Mary, conceived without sin pray for us who have recourse to thee. (say 3 times) Holy Mary, I place this prayer in your hands. (say 3 times) Amen. Say this prayer 3 consecutive days & then you must publish it & it will be granted to you.
