Humbly Request Prayers Be Lifted For My Family And I

Posted on 01/25/2012 3:51:39 AM PST by PigRigger

FRiends:

Once again I am facing the dilemma of possibly being unemployed over the next 6-7 months. My company is going through a major restructuring and is looking to dismiss up to 300 employees.

I ask that you lift prayers to our Father asking him to be with my family and I....and with all those facing such....to give us peace, comfort, strength, and faith.

We don't always understand our Fathers plan....and have to rely on his promise he will always provide and never abandon His children.....but sometimes I find it hard to put all my trust in Him.

For all those that act upon this request....I thank you...For those who have face similar circimstances....I wish you peace and God's Blessings.

You have my heartfelt prayers. I can understand, my friend is an unemplyed/underemployed construction worker. It has been very tough on him these past couple years...and I think especially to men in general who are self-sufficient. I’ve watched him combing through construction notices sometimes for months on end, making calls, visiting job sites..only to be be told ‘maybe next week, we’ve got enough men, job is on hold”, etc. All I can offer is my support..and it is frustrating and at times, sad.

But I’m equally certain that we will get through this, every last one of us. I wish you well.

Our prayers for you and your family. Hold tightly to their love and return it full intensity. Find private places to cry when you must. I lost my home, had a heart attack, lost the love of my later years (best girl ever) and will tell you that they need to see your emotional stability or they will suffer, but the emotions you feel will not abide stifling; so find a private place when it gets to be too much, have your moment, and get back to the work of life.

I will pray a rosary for you and your beautiful girls.

I too, am the father of a conspicuous family, and want you to know I believe you are the subject of the Father’s attentions, because I was moved quite clearly to click on your thread.

Look for the hand of God, my FRiend. Not a sparrow falls....

“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)

I had to close my business in the spring of 2009. As hard as it was to walk away from that, I realized the God was moving us in a another direction. We now live by absolute faith in the keeping power of the Lord, and have been blessed with a growing on-line and community ministry.

I would encourage you to stop worrying about tomorrow, and focus on doing your best everyday. Do whatever it takes to build your lack of faith in His ability to take care of you and your family, because “without faith it is impossible to please God.”(Hebrews 11:6)

In other words, “Keep your eyes on the promise and not on the present!”

Lord, I lift up to you this precious family, and I ask that you give them the faith, hope, and peace that they need to get through this frightening time.

I thank you for the promises that you've given us, that you WILL provide for us, never leaving nor forsaking us. THANK YOU for the great miracles that you are doing in their lives even now, in Jesus' name, amen.

Find your bible, get to the passages regarding His provision, and PRAY THEM BACK To The Lord. This is VERY powerful (His Word shall not return to Him void, Isaiah 55) for your situation overall, and will strengthen your faith mightily.

Browse the Psalms daily, and also pray them back to Him as you feel led. Out loud is best, even if it's just a tiny whisper. Not sure why, just many years of doing this have shown me this. You'll be surprised what He leads you to. Don't forget Biblegateway.com keyword search. I had an issue with my son two days ago and I put in "day of trouble" and came up with some awesome promises I didn't even know were there (it was fine, BTW, praise God!).

Don't forget that He owns ALL things on the earth, the "cattle on a thousand hills." It's ALL His, and if we ask for bread he will NOT give us a stone (or is that a fish?).

Do you have a smartphone? If so, make sure you have a bible app, great to have during the day during a moment or two of downtime. I have the "Bible Promises" app also, which has been a lifeline for me, this is it in paperback:

The Bible Promise Book

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matt 6:25-34, NIV

My prayers are with you.

These are indeed difficult times, and you will be in my prayers over your job. May the Holy Spirit inspire you in
your ideas and choices over the next months. Also, try never to get discouraged—keep working every day to maintain your job, to learn new skills, and seek help in getting a new job should that need arise.
Good luck!
GOD BLESS YOU!

Prayers up for you and your family.

Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car c’est à Toi qu’appartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

I do not know where this road will take me....but wherever it should go I will face it head on....and rely on God to move my feet down the right path....

I understand I am not alone in facing such difficult times, many have experienced much worse....but that does not make this situation any better....or make me feel less pained...

In the Bible...it states that faith, hope and love are of the highest virtue....and in each God has blessed me in abundance many times over....Funny, from an outside observer, one might see my life as ordinary, but it is far from it...for that I am ever thankful...I live a life I never thought possible....Praise God...

This is the first critical challenge ever put in my life's path.....so thank you everyone for your prayers and words of encouragement.....it is deeply apprecited....and will be taken to heart...

Hi All....just an update on my situation...

The good news...Thank the Lord....I made it past the first round of cuts....Thank you for your prayers one and all...!

Even in my relief I find no solitude...many, many good people lost their livelihoods over the last two days....it was like a buzz-saw going through timber....it was brutal...I am at a loss for words to describe my feelings during the carnage....pray you never have to experience it...

As stated above...I made it through round one.....still more to come in the summer, round two....so please keep my family and I in your prayers.....and please keep all those facing financial hardships in your prayers as well...

Our God is great God....and if God is with us...who can stand against us...thank you Lord for your mercy and grace...

Again, my heartfelt thanks to all of you....God Bless You!
