Lorraine N
Worried and discouraged

I lost my job..out of the blue. I am so worried and just sick about being able to find another. I feel so beaten down and discouraged like such a failure to my family.

I have lost 2 other major paying jobs due to relocation of company or reoganization/downsizing.
The last time I pulled it together and decided to go back to school and begin a new career with a new degree.
I have been working this job for nearly 2 years. A girl went out on maternity leave, so they hired a young man to cover her work. Now the girl is returning and they have too many people. They decided it would be best for the"companys vision", to keep the young guy with no certification and very little experience and let the 56 yr old person go. I am's as though my dedication,my service and my hard work meant nothing. I have done nothing at all wrong. I put my heart into this job. I so loved it. I must find a new job quickly.I'm afraid I will lose my home. Please pray for me to have the strenght to brighten up again and please pray for me to find a better job. I am so worried and discouraged.

Lord Jesus I pray for Lorraine to be strengthen in the inner most part of her being. I loose the blood of Jesus over her spirit,soul,and body. I bind the spirit of depression trying to overtake her. Lord give her favor with another job soon. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.(Proverbs 3:5,6). Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.(Psalm 31:24). In Jesus Name. Amen

Lorraine, the headline in your prayer request was an red flag....meaning, that it is not good to turn your external circumstances internal. Faith and peace of mind begins on the inside and then overcomes all things on the outside. Please do not be hard on yourself, for you are much more important to God and belong to Him. The world is the world and it does not understand the things of God. Please remember the special place you hold in the Father's heart and how He will do anything that you ask of Him. Trust, Faith and Confidence...

His Love,

Lorraine, God bless you. I pray that He will continue to provide for you and sustain you during this time of testing. Please be encouraged and know that God rewards those who diligently seeks Him. Continue to strenghten your faith in Him by reading the Word and trusting and believing that He will see you through this time, just like He did before. Try not to be bitter about what happened at your previous job. Continue to pray for them and you will see that God has something greater for you in the near future. Know that you are loved. Keeping you in my prayers, hbl4.

Lorraine, You are in my prayers. My husband has been forced to let individuals go from there jobs to keep his company afloat. It's almost as difficult for us to know that these actions are so painful for others. I pray daily that things in the economy will improve so that you and many others like you can return to work soon. I pray that God will give you the strength to go forward. I will pray daily that you find a better job. Please believe that God will provide for you and has a bigger, better plan in mind.
