Michelle R
Feeling Trapped

Hello name is Michelle and I'm 30 years old. I have a gorgeous 3 yr old little girl named Tori and a husband of 10 years!!! I'm a work at home mom and I also work nights. My husband is in nursing school and only working part time.

Our financial situation is getting worse by the day. We could lose our house any day and my husband still has a year left of school. Once he's out of school we'll be fine but until then I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to put my daughter in day care. Besides, the cost of daycare these days would probably eat up most of my check! I'm feeling very trapped and depressed and don't know where to turn. If its not in the cards for me to have the money to salvage everything then maybe some of you would be so kind as to say a prayer for us to accept this situation and deal with it gracefully, whatever the outcome might be. This is really a last ditch effort on my part as I honestly don't know what else to do. Being a stay at home mom plus working two jobs is exhausting but the stress on top of everything else is getting to be too much. So please...if you wouldn't mind just saying a quick prayer for us I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much and have a wonderful day!

Oh Lord my God, what an awesome father you are. Thank you Lord for guiding me in your word. I read in Matthew 6:31-33 which applies to us. "Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Father, give Michelle your blessings. Show her your purpose, your plan. Father help her to trust in you and you alone. To believe in your grace, that all things come to those who believe and trust in you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

My prayers are send for Michelle and her family, so our dear God and JesusChrist, help her as of right now, protect her, to solve all her problems,
"Do not fear for I am with you;Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God, I will strengthen you, Surely I will help you. Surely I will uphold you with My Righteous Right Hand. (Isaiah 41:10", I understand very well, I been there, and in a way, I still am, but the power of God and Christ is infinite, I seen it, feel it, my heart is with you, and my prayers too, Sincerely.

Lord, i pray for michelle, and her husband and daughter. I pray that they turn to you for guidance, that they feel the peace and confidence in life that comes only when we place our trust in you that you will make things right for us. I do not use your words lightly, but provide them to michelle so that she too may see that you watch over her and her family and are always present.
Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, nor about your body, what you shall put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.
Luke 12-23

Rather, Bless Michelle and her family with security (emotional and financial) and send to her those who would be your agent in her family's time of need. Father, so many young families are stressed with trying to raise children and manage the expenses of a home...bless them with whatever resources they need, in Jesus' name I ask. Amen. Thank you Father for hering my prayer. And Michele, God will send to you those who can help in many ways...look for and be open to them. I would alo encourage you to join, and/or turn to, and share with a local church community your plight without embarassment...I am guilty of not being open to receiving from or giving enough regularly to my local church is our misnistry a Christians to help each other. People want to help. God bless you and your little family. And I thank God for your husband's choice of a career.

Dear Lord,
So many times did I find myself in similar situations, with a small child and at the verge of loosing everything. The stress can be such that you can't breath or even organize your mind for a prayer. At moments like this Michelle, just praise the Lord and put all your cares in his hands. I know it seems hopeless at times but in Him there is always hope. Whatever material things you might lose temporarily, He will restore tenfold. You have chosen the right path by seeking prayer and the Lords intervention. I assure you there will be a time you will marvel at how the Lords divine plan unfolded for you.
Lord, I ask that you take Michelle and her family across this difficult time, ease her fears and let her feel that you are with her and that you have wonderful plans for her that are in gear at this very moment. Don't let her loose her hope and faith and bless her and her family with the strength to keep on going. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

6/30/2005 08:02

Dear Lord, if we seek You first and all Your righteousness, everything else will be added unto us. You have promised to supply all our needs according to Your riches in glory. If we cast all our cares upon You, You will care for us. Please comfort Michelle and family with the promises of Your word. You may not come when we want You to, Lord, but, You are always on time. Thank You for answering our prayers. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

6/30/2005 08:05

Dear Lord, I pray that you give Michelle and her family strength, guidance and comfort. Please help them to find their way finacially and handle their circumstances with patience and courage and hope. Please continue to lead, guide and direct them and supply them with all of their needs. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

6/30/2005 08:57

Heavenly Father,
I just lift Michelle and her family up to you right now and I pray for Your divine direction for their life. God send your peace to Michelle now and comfort her in this time of stress and struggle. Lord, set Your steps before her that she may know Your plan and direction for her family. Let the yoke be easy and her burden be light for You are the author of our book and You are in control. Father, give her increased faith and perserverance to get her through this time. I pray that You would bring her family closer together and that this trial would not serve as an in-road for the enemy. Place Your protection around them and cover them with your love, blessings and grace. Your are the God of the impossible and so I stand with my sister in Christ and believe for a miraculous change for her today. Renewed faith in You oh Lord and all of Your ways.
In His mighty name,Amen.

Philipians 4:19 God will provide all your needs
Trust in God, he will not forsake you. Even when things seems as if they are impossible to handle. I'd like you to remember that to our Father, NOTHING is impossible. Stay faithful to Him and you'll be okay. We are were he needs us to be, BUT he won't let us drown. Your family is in my prayers. God Bless You.

6/30/2005 10:32

Michelle, You family is in our prayers. My daughter has a rare blood disease, Histiocytosis. A paper cut, bruise, infection, etc. can cause a tumor. She had a tumor in the bone of her right eye and one in the center of her forehead. I was laid off from work the day the "found something" and sent us to University of Kentucky Hospital For Children. MaKayla completed six months of chemo and has been in remmisson for two years. She got to draw SSI, but they said she no longer qualified as of January this year. The tumors caused problems with her eyes, ears and sinuses. The steriods also damaged some teeth and they need to be cut out. We go to the doctor 3-4 times a month. I have not been able to find a job, that will work around my schedule. Also there is the problem of daycare. My husband works nights, it would be very difficult for him to stay up all day to watch MaKayla. We struggled to keep our home. Finally I told God to let us know what to do. We filed bankrupcy last month. We are renting a trailer with rental assistance. I haven't went back to work,yet. School starts in August. MaKayla will be in headstart. She has two appointment scheduled for August as of right now. After those I am going to try finding a job. God has a purpose for all things and remember with him all things are possible. There is a small Baptist Church here that needs to start 3-5 year old program. I work with the 3-5 year old program at our church. God always has a plan and I believe he puts you where you are needed to do his work. God Bless You. We will be praying for you all.

6/30/2005 11:20

Dear God, I know that right now all seems lost with Michelle. I myself have found myself in a similar situation and I remember that the moment I accepted that I was right where you needed me to be in my life and let go of the stress and allowed you to work in my life it all worked out. I pray that Michelle has faith in you and acceptance in her heart that no matter what happens in her life that you have not deserted her. I pray that she knows that although we cant see around the corner of an unfamiliar road you know what is there and that you will guide her. Thank you lord for hearing this prayer and bless Michelle and her family.

6/30/2005 11:33

Michelle, I know that this is a rough time for you right now but the Lord doesn't put too much on you that you can't handle. I tell myself this quite a fews time a day because I am going through a rough time with my financial situations. I am 23 and a mother of 3 and married and it seems like everytime we get good with finances something else just comes and put us behind with all of our bills. I will pray for you and your family Michelle that God will help you in your time of need. Michelle you hang in there and never give up. God will never let his children go through too much.

6/30/2005 12:46

Heavenly Father, You said that where there are two or more gather in your name there you would be also.Lord, I lift up all the prayers above to you in the name of all, that your guidiness and help is on the way to Michelle and her family at this moment. Show her your ways that she might have peace of mind. In Christ name I pray. Amen

6/30/2005 14:33

Michelle: I walked that road once, I know it's not easy, but I survive to let you know that GOD answers PRAYERS, please keep on praying and have faith, I will pray for you, our GOD is a GOOD GOD.Most SAcred Heart of Jesus, hear and answer our prayers for Michelle. IN JESUS ALMIGHTY NAME

6/30/2005 15:22

Michelle: I walk the same road daily. I am a single mother (divorced eight years now) of six with four children (18,15,14,14) still at home.

Recently, my company downsized and now I am out of a job. Fortunetly I qualified for unemployment, however it is not enough to maintain payments on my house and my car. Facing the awfulness of bankruptcy, all that time fasting and praying, one morning I was awakened to these words to my spirit, "Your steps are ordered by Me" I knew my heavenly Father was assuring me that He was guiding me.

He took me on a journey back to the story of Josepth...God had given him a dream that all of his family would bow down and worship him one day. Josepth's brothers sold him into slavery not to mention all the aweful things happened to him, however he never once gave up on the dream that God had given to him, that all would bow down to him one day.

The reason the Word of God is able to talk about his positive attitude is because he never lost sight of the destiny that God would bring to pass.

That is why Josepth was able to say to his brothers when they were feeling bad about what they had done to him, "You meant it for evil, but God meant it for save an entire nation!"

God had placed a destiny in my heart the I would be a spokeswoman for Him, proclaiming all that He has done for me.

I came to realize at that moment that I had walked through and still walk through difficulties to prepare me for the destiny that He has for me. Am I walking through it alone, ABSOLUTELY NOT! Do I still cry sometimes when the way seems a little more difficult than before, Yes, I do, but I keep on walking! That is only my part to do! I keep on walking, keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus knowing that this life is about learning and growing...that He loves me, He is for me, and His love for me is immense.

My life is not unique, I am no one special, I have no great talents and abilities..only what God has done for me that makes the difference.

So what is His plan and purpose for your life? What is He preparing you for? I pray you will find those answers as you seek His face in the coming days...

Hi Michelle:

I am in a similiar situation like yourself. I have just completed my B.Sc. at Novasoutheastern University and I have being struggling for the pass few months to pay my mortgage. I have a nine years old son. It is only my son and I. I have three small loans that for my school tuition and the bank are constantly calling me for payment. They have treating to take me to court. The money I am making could only help me with the mortgage. I was told on Tuesday if I do not bring the furniture some money that they would be taking my furnitures from out of the house. So, Michelle when you look down the road someone else has it worse than you do. Remember, in all things give God thanks. Remember God do not put more than we can bare. My back is against the wall but I know God is going to see me through. You just have to believe and trust him to make the way out of no way. Michelle you just have to believe.

Could we stand in agreement together that God is going to see us through these difficult times.
