Prayers up. Completely understand job situation...in my case, due to my philosophy of life not being accepted at work. After changing to the private sector, life is going MUCH better.

Father, we unite in prayer for our brother, Your son, Race.
He's been faithfully on the wall for You and now needs Your intervention and blessing.

We ask, in the name of Jesus and for His sake, that you would bless Race with a job that provides all he needs and we will give You the honor for Your faithfulness.

In Jesus name we ask this,

Amen

..hang in there RB, I’ve been looking since last May. After countless applications matched by numerous interviews. I’ve found that unless you match the perfect employee, the companies are willing to wait till they get what they deem perfect, they can afford to do just that, WAIT.

Prayers up for you, Race. It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there. Thankfully conservative Americans can identify the wheat from the chaff and downsize to accommodate. My prayers and best wishes for a speedy employment engagement.

That's Obama's recovery for 'ya - I dodged a bullet last week at Sikorsky, saw guys getting picked off left and right, praise God I didn't take a stray round.
I'll be praying for you.

Gosh, old boy, there is little I can do for you on the other side of the world, but I see that you have been on FR almost as long as I have been here.
Hopefully, US Freepers will find some ideas for you.
If you need any international info, let me know.

Hang in there, I was laid off in late dec and my wife was an Obamacare downsized casualty.
So I just started rebuilding one of my older Goldwings.
And yesterday fortune fell upon me out of the blue.
I had faith and that was all that mattered.

Race...One last thought before I go to bed.
Start thinking outside the box. What service can you provide as a self employed individual?
Personally, I never worked for anyone but myself.
Catalog your abilities and consider using them in a small business of your own.

Father God,

May you give Race favor as he goes to his job interviews. You say in Your Word that believers are the head and not the tail. You also provide for all of our needs according to your riches and glory.

Lead Race to the job You want for him. May you bless and prosper him.

May He continue to look to You for His strength for You are our Strong Tower.

Thank you for the plans You have for Race; plans for good, not for evil to give him a future and a hope.

In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father, We pray today for our brother, Race and all the FReepers who are looking for work. Please provide for them Lord.. not only economically but spiritually and emotionally. Eliminate their fears. In This I Pray. Amen.

***Race.. I’m praying for you! You are intelligent and a good person. I could give you the whole, “When one door shuts.. talk but I don’t think that really ever helps. I will say this though.. several friends were laid off and eventually found a better job. Better pay, better people to be around and the opportunity to be promoted. Keep the faith! Hugs, Mom

Look into getting a head hunter or to. If you are willing to relocate, you should find something. Before the situation with my unborn child, I had an interview and a job offer set up that took me six weeks to find.
