Russell A
Russell , my son needs immediate prayers

needs prayers for health and employment

Russell has been out of work for several months and things are getting very difficult. He is in OKlahoma, many miles away from all his family. Please pray that OUr LORD opens the door for some kind of employment for him. He has so many talents and has tried to find work everywhere. I pray that someone out there sees this and will pray with me. Russell suffers from ADD and Panic attacks and this condition has caused him to make poor decisions in life, but is on the road to recovery since being diagnosed. I pray that God walks with him daily and frees him to continue with making good decisions and have a successful future. Please God , hear my prayers for him, and give me patience to wait for your answers. Let others see this prayers circle and join me in prayer for my son. In Jesus' name, Amen

Dear Everyone,
The subject seems to be on praying for employment, as the times are somewhat slow and a few business's had to cut back.It is a sad case of events when someone has to suffer the loss of a job,especially one that has been around for years.I am self employed and I too am going through a bit of a slow down.I have to admit it but I have even considered bankrupcy.Then I had to ask;is this what God wants? No! But in spite of all the sad times I must think of the good times when God came through at the last minute just when all seemed hopeless.Allow me to make a suggestion if I may;if any one of you has a certain talent and a little nerve,you should consider going into business for yourself.You might be surprised at what God may uncover for you.Sure,it is rough at times because there is no payday to look forward to or bennifits to collect but you muse consider the independence and freedom of being your own boss.

10/26/2001 23:35

I want to again thank all of my prayer friends for remembering Russell and I in your prayers, especially you new ones since the last time I was reading. and I will keep all of you in prayer for strength and guidance. Let's keep each other strong in our faith. God Bless all of you. Russell continues to do well, he is still struggling financially, but does good otherwise.
Love to all

My prayers go out to you and your son Betty and also to many others here who are having difficulty finding jobs. i myself have for years been looking for something all unsuccessfully it seemed until God pointed me in the right direction or rather sent the job to me. I can truly say like Hannah did for little Samuel, "For this job, I prayed." Now I am in a position where I can help others by brining them into the business as well. If anyone here feels lead of the Lord to follow up on this Christian offer, please email me at If you feel that I am trying to solicit you, disregard this. It is just an innocent offer, my heart goes out to you. I have been there and done that.

He is depressed, but determined to find something else. This is a setback for him, but prayer will heal and bring success. Thank you all for caring about us,and I continue daily in my prayers for all of you .

Do not worry and lose hope. I understand your situation because I myself, who is the sole breadwinner of the family, has been unemployed for several months already. I am confident that our Almighty Father, in His inifinite mercy, in unity with His only Son, Jesus, our Lord and Savior, will bless you. Please pray for me and my family also. The Lord loves you. And so your family especially your mother, BettyJ. We love you too.

I have just read all the prayers and good wishes from all of you, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I just feel so blessed by all of your prayers, and I continue with my prayers for you. My computer has been in the shop since Christmas, just got it back, so I will be in touch. Russell lost his job just a couple of weeks before Christmas and has not found another one, and right now is in crisis with his panic attacks. He has no transportation to get to the VA Hospital which is 150 miles away. Right now he is staying with a friend till he can do something else, still looking for work of some type too. He is still strong in the faith, PRAISE GOD!! I stay in contact often, and help him when I can. He wants to come back to California when he can afford it, to be close to family, although everyone besides me has little to do with him, all are so involved in their own little world. Please keep praying for him to find his way. May GOD keep all of you in good health and spirits. My prayers are with you also.

Dear Father in heaven,Giver of all good things,I thank you that you have created
me and preserved me to this day. You
know my needs and my fears because of my
present unemployment. I pray you, comfort and strengthen me, and help me
to maintain my hope and courage.
It is clear from your Word that work
is normal and good for all people, yet
I have not found the work which I need and seek. This situation is hard to unde
rstand. Help me, Lord, to surrender
wholly to You and to look to You for the
emplolment that I need. I pray you, Lord correct what is wrong with me or
with the employment situation in general
and give me the opportunity to earn my
living. Open a door to employment which I do not now see. Keep me from discouragement and bitterness, and help me to put my trust in You. Help me to say with a believing heart: "The eyes of
all look to Thee,and Thou givest them their food in due season. Thou openest
Thy hand, Thou satisfiest the desire of every living thing."
In that knowledge and in that faith make me trusting and patient. In the
meantime care for me and mine according to Your promise. I trust You will do so for the sake of JESUS CHRIST
my SAVIOR, in whom You have promised to
give us all things. AMEM.
