Prayers Do Get Answered

Hello! The other day I posted a thread asking for prayers because I got laid off my job and was feeling very down. Well, prayers get answered maybe in not the way I might expect, but in a way I need. I don’t have a new job, things are still the same, but ever since I read all the responses to my post, I have felt a peace and serenity I did not expect. Thank-you all for praying for me! The most important thing is the Eucharist for me–if I have that, everything else will work out. It’s like seek first His kingdom, and all else will be taken care of. God bless you all, I’ll be posting again!:smiley:

Glad to see things at least looking better for you right now! Keep the faith and pray for things in your life to get better! God bless you!

Glad to hear you feel the peace of Christ. Don’t forget to pray for us too! :smiley:

God bless. Courage!

Thanks be to God!

Dear Saint Joseph, you were yourself once faced with the responsibility of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary. Look down with fatherly compassion upon us in our anxiety over our present inability to support our families. Please help us to find gainful employment very soon, so that this heavy burden of concern will be lifted from our hearts and that we will soon be able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to our care. Help us to guard against bitterness and discouragement, so that we may emerge from this trial spiritually enriched and with even greater blessings from God. Amen.

Deo grátias! The power of prayer is truly profound.

Lord God, please hear our prayers for scrappy and for those on this thread who are seeking gainful employment. May they find jobs soon so that they may provide for their own needs and the needs of their families, save up for the future, and also donate to the Church that does good works in Your name. Amen.

Amen, Amen!

How truly I know this. My wife had cancer and she is well. My marriage was questionable and we are still together. The bills were stacking up. My business was failing, I start a very good new job tomorrow. All because of prayer to God The Father Almighty through Jesus, Through Mary, all the Saints, and the Holy Souls. Prayers are answered, if put what is first in your life.

The Lord indeed works in strange and mysterious ways, doesn’t He? (scrappy, I’m still gonna throw in a prayer that you get a new job!)…

Dear Saint Joseph, you were yourself once faced with the responsibility of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary. Look down with fatherly compassion upon the unemployed in their anxiety over their present inability to support their families. Please help them to find gainful employment very soon, so that this heavy burden of concern will be lifted from their hearts and that they are soon able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to their care.

Amen.

P.S. MS_SURVEYOR, we were praying for you to get a job on another thread. What wonderful news! The power of prayer, my friends, the power of prayer…
