Lisa Rigg
Disabled single mother of two in financial crisis.

This is my first time asking for any kind of help, or even prayers. My situation is at a critical point, however, and I am turning to you all for help in praying for my financial and housing situation.

For the first time in my life I am scared, in fact I am terrified, because I do not have the funds for December's rent, nor a cent for Christmas this year. I haven't told this to my sons yet.
Because of unexpected hospitalization costs and auto repair bills for my eldest's car, along with the increase of prices right now, but not my little government check ~ I am flat broke for the very first time.
My worst fear is that we will be out with the growing number of homeless folks on the street. My landlord informed me last week that she is puting the house up for sale.
I have been praying for a miracle. I am already prone to anxiety, which triggers epileptic seizures, and they have been increasing. I would be forever thankful for any prayers. We are stronger in numbers, and I will pray for you as well. God Bless You All.

Lisa, God is at His best in the midst of our tribulations and I will keep you and your children in my thoughts and prayers of extreme faith, hope, and love. I would like to extend to your children for the Christmas holiday a gift and a bag of treats. The nature of God is to bless and the reason for the season is to remind us who we are as a family in the Body of Christ. Please contact me.

In some ways I do know what you going through. This year has also been extremely difficult for my wife and me.

As we all hold hands, and as a group we are gathered, I am in agreement with your need to experience a miracle. The receipt of security for your home. The receipt of mobility for your children. The feeling of calm in your mind and heart. The receipt of a positive result from the hospitalisation.

Gifts should be the least of your worries, you will be giving your family the gifts of love and caring. Your health will be a gift to them this year.

Much like my situation, I know you have prayed and prayed for relief and a bright sun on the horizon. I pray for all those people who just want a small positive of God's grace in their lives. No arm twisting, just a whisper of hope, so that our cares are in God's Hands, and that someone will hear that whisper and give us an opportunity to move forward.

I ask this in Jesus' name, and ask for agreement.

if i may borrow a prayer from O`Donohue....When a light around you lessens,And your thoughts darken until Your body feels fear turn cold as stone inside. When you find yourself bereft of any belief in yourself,And all you unknowingly learned on has fallen, When one voice commands your whole heart And it is raven dark,Steady yourself and see, that it is your own thinking that darkens your world, Search and you will find, A diamond thought of light, Know that you are not alone And that this darkness has purpose, Gradualy it will school your eyes, To find the one gift your life requires, hidden within this night corner.Invoke the learning of every suffering you have suffered.Close your eyes.Gather all the kindling about your heart,to create one spark.That is all you need to nourish the flame,that will cleanse the dark of its weight and festered fear. A new confidence will come alive,to urge you to higher ground.Where your imagination will learn to engage difficulty,A its most rewarding threshold....Amen

Lisa, you will be in my prayers. As so many families struggle this year (mine included) we have to remember that we are not alone. God is with us. We will see a brighter day. How hard it is to remember that money is trivial and of this world. The true blessings are our children and loving families - no matter how far away. Please do not give up on your hope and faith. There is a light and it is the love of God. Myself included have to think these thoughts daily to get through each day. Please God, help Lisa to see your love and blessings and to not waste one minute of her children's lives worrying about money. Give her the strength she needs to see herself through this time that you are guiding her through. Give her peace in her heart even in her darkest hours. May she feel the warmth of Your love in all moments of her day. Love to the most powerful. AMEN!!!!

My prayers are with you and yours. Trust in GOD and remember their will always be a tomorrow.Whether good or bad God is always with you. Have faith and just wait and see, things always fall into place. I will pray for your situation. You are not alone. It may seem so right now but The Almighty sees your plight and things will get better.Trust!

In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, God please look after this woman and free her from her anxieties that she may see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am asking this for her. Lead the way to find a better life for her and her children. Give her the answers to her dilemma. Thank you Lord for all your gifts to this family. Amen. Lisa, please find little things that you can give to your children even if it is a little note that says things like "I promise to tell you I love you every morning and night" or "I will give you hugs and kisses everyday" or "I promise not to get angry when things do not go the way I want them to" or "I will keep you safe from harm do not be afraid". You'd be surprised what this can do for a child. If you have needle and thread take some old clothes and make puppets with buttons for eyes, they don't have to be fancy, your little kids will love them especially if they are spending time with you. God will hear your prayers and answer them. God Bless You and Keep you.
