Job Loss and Hope


#1

Please continue praying for myself, my husband, Bo, and our grown son, Spencer, who still lives at home. My husband was unjustly fired right before Thanksgiving from a local truck driving job he loved.

Please pray for all three of us to have hope and faith and to come through this trial victoriously. I am praying my Rosary, watching EWTN and just trying to keep myself encouraged and let go of this fear and lack of hope I’m feeling. It is so hard with the holidays here and the job market so bad. But I am trying to remember that our circumstances are far from impossible for God.

On top of it all, our only vehicle has broken down and my husband and a friend are trying to fix it and having difficulties. We couldn’t get to Mass which I think I need desperately. Please pray for this too.

Any prayers would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

Amie

I pray for you and yours. I lost my job unjustly today so though I have not had the time “in” as you have, I feel the despair and hopelessness that your husband must be feeling. I pray for all of us.

My dear Amie. I am praying for you and your husband. I know what you are going through. I too am unemployed, my husband has pancreatic cancer, going through foreclosure and a bankruptcy and my 84 year old mother lives with us. Our burdens are so many in this economy. I am trusting that God will turn this around and we will all be so much stronger for it. I was unjustly “denied” unemployment…it is just a sad world and I can feel Jesus’ tears as I write…I’ll keep you in prayers though. I truly know something will come up when you least expect it.
Stay strong to your Faith, my dear friend.
Diane
