View Full Version : Pray Request
09-28-2000, 06:02 PM
I know there are sorors and sf's who are in need of pray for whatever reason. When prayers go up blessing come down! So if you are in need of pray (even if you think it's something minor) please post it. We can also add each other to the prayer list at our different churches as well. So please lift my name up in your prayers.

Soror this is a wonderful idea. I like everyone else need prayer. I need prayer because I can't seem to find a job in my field. I am starting to feel down about this. I have applied to so many different stations and even aggreed to volunteer and work a second job. Sometimes I feel that I will never get a break. I have had to fight for everything (but that makes me appreciate it once I get it). So Sorors and SF's could you please pray that I find a job that I love?

Soror consider it done. I have a little story to tell you that may bring comfort to you. One of my LS's just graduated from college with a degree in Health Care Administration. She tried for about two months to find a job in her career but was unsuccessful. She had to settle for a job that paid her only $8.50hr. She was so depressed and thought that nothing was ever going to come through. We never know what God has in store for us. Sometimes God put us through things to test our faith. Also, God want us to rely on him so we will have no doubt who brought us through the storm. I am happy to say that she was just offered a job with Boeing Aircraft Company(this is totally out of her field) making anywhere from $37,000-42,000 a year. God is sooooo good! He also moved her from Wichita, KS. to Seattle, Washington. See, she only saw the possibilities in Kansas but God saw possibilities in Washington. So in saying all this soror, just continue to pray and ask God to do his will,not your own, in your life. One important thing don't forget to thank him for what he's done already!
Much Love and God's Blessings,

It is so true that we all need prayer. God is on time and knows what is best. He has something in store for each and every one of us.
DeltaDiva, The Negotiator, and the rest of my Sisterfriends out there I am lifting your names up in prayer, and I ask that you do the same for myself.

This topic is a good idea.
This is my last semester of grad school (hopefully). I've completed all of my required classes and am currently working on my thesis. If anyone is or has worked on a thesis, they know why I am asking for prayer. It is a lot of hard, time-consuming work. I'm getting closer and closer to the end, but I feel as if I'm sinking deeper and deeper into a pool of unfinished, chaotic research.
I'm sure everyone is facing some type of difficulty in school or work themselves. Therefore, I am sending out my prayers to everyone.

Please pray for me ladies. Lately, I've had a little misfortune and I don't think that it can get worse. I have put ALL of my trust in him and I know that he will make a way. He has already blessed me with so much in the past that I still hold close at hand and I know that he won't let me down now. Just pray for my strength to make it through.
Praise the LORD!!!!
Set your goal!! Strive!! Bask in your reward!!

Just yesterday, I was on my way to Kentucky on a business trip, stopped in a resturant for lunch for about 30 minutes, came outside and my luggage was stolen out of the car. I am not concerned with the clothes or anything, they are easily replaced. The thing that made me so sad was that my wedding ring was in my bag.
I had to go and work in a warehouse so I decided to put my ring in my bag so nothing would happen to it. I would just like for all of the sisterfriends and sorors of DST to pray for the Lord to help me overcome the anger and the feeling of just being violated.

I am praying for you right now. You all have been there for me, and know that you have sister in Missouri who's there for you.

You all are in my prayers. Just remember---
When you are DOWN to nothing... God is UP to something!!!
Take care and be blessed!

SF's I am officially requestiong prayers from everyone. I need strength, guidance, and reassurance. Yesterday when I was at work a man came in and walked up to me and asked if I worked there. I told him yes, he then pulled out a 357 and said you know what to do let's go get this monney. I then walked to the front of the store and began to try to open the refister..but I was so nervous I couldn't remember how to open it. he started yelling and telling me to hurry up. He told me that I was taking too long and that I must have thought that he was playing and he jerked the gun towards me.:eek I just closed my eyes and braced myself because I thought for sure I was a gonner. I finally got the register open and he reached over the counter and took out the drawer and walked out of the door. I called the police as soon as he left. Needless to say, the whole thing nearly gave me a heart attack. Now I am faced with a dilema. I don't whether or not to go back to work. I can't see my self feeling safe working there. However, I really need that job. Right now my district manager has given me permission to take the rest of the week off and decide if I want to come back or not. My major problem is this: This robbery was not unique. The street that our store is located on averages 3 robberies a day. It was just a matter of time before our store was hit. The company was aware of all that was going on and as a result we had double coverage in the store from open to close instead of our normal single coveragein the day and only double coverage at closing. If I should go back there I would feel like a sitting duck. No one else saw the mans face except me. The other girl that was working was breaking down the shipmen therefor, she was in the backof the store. There were two female customers and their children but they were in the other aisles. and didn't even know that we had been robbed. He made no attempt to cover his face he had on bright clothing and was very quick he knew to walk up to me when he walked in. This makes me think he either knows someone,, worked there himself, or has been watching for quite a while. We have a video camera in there but it's just a monitor..but no one knows that except us. He didn't try to hide from the camera or anything. I'm just stressed and scared. I had planned on quitting before I went home for Christmas anyway becuse this job is taking up too much time and I don't have enought time to study at night becuase I am always at work. I don't know what to do. I want to finish the month out becuase I have to get my plane ticket to go home for Christmas. My parents can not afford to help me because my mom is on a medical disability and right now my dad is too becuase he keeps haing black outs and the doctors can't figure out why. He hasn't worked since May and doesn't know if he will be allowed to go back if he can't figure out what's wrong with him. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray for me and with me about what to do. I need to make my decision before Sunday so any prayers and emails big or small would be grately appreciated. Thank You

Kay, Hopeful & RealityBlack,
My prayers go out to you all!! Know that nothing is too big for God. I heard someone say once that an impossible situation is just Gos's way of setting you up for a miracle!! Read Psalms 27 & 91. They have both been a comfort to me when I was low.
I will be praying for you all.
10-05-2000, 07:50 PM
I know how scared you were. And you survived. to God be the GLORY!!
I would not go back. They can write you a wonderful recommendation, if you want to move on. But, have you saved up enough to be able to hang on your own? Can they put you in another store? Or in an administrative position?
I will be praying for you and your family, try to hold on to your faith, God will take care of you.

I would like to thank you all for even caring. You all, too, are in my prayers. Reality, leave that job girl. You'll feel that same fear everytime you set a foot in that place and even worse when you see a suspicious looking person.
Little story......I feel scared everytime a man looks at me in a perverted way (doesn't happen very often) because when I was in the 10th grade I was raped by a "boyfriend". Luckily, I now have a boyfriend now that LOVES me (6 years of love). He is truely my gift!!
So....what I'm saying is that a familiar setting that brought up trommatizing (may be spelled wrong) fear will always bring up bad feelings.
SO MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL!!!!!
I truely thank you all from the bottom of my bottomless heart!! http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif

Thank you all for the responses.. I'm soooo scared. The police called my job yesterday looking for me because they caught the guy and they want me to come and identify him.
I AM PETRIFIED!!! I've never been through anything like this at all. I am trying to think logically here..but I feel like I am in a catch 22. I really need to work until at least the end of the month but I am just too afraid right now. There are two other stores in the area but the next closest one is in an area just as bad as the one I work in.. they don't have alot of robberies but they constantly have customers threatning them and trying to fight them. The other place is in the mall..which is kind of far from me on campus. I don't have a car so I have to catch a cab to work. My friend lets me drive her car to work when she's in town but she does go home on the weekend. I could catch the bus but by the time I get off the bus will have stopped running.
I just got paid today and will get another check next Friday. After that..that will be it..I still have to get my plane ticket which is $240.00 roundtrip and pay my bills for November December and January which will be $300.00 The other thing is that I am only on a 5 meal plan because I am usually at work in the evening so it doens't make sense to pay for all of those meals and I won't even be on campus to eat them. So then I have to have money to buy food to put in my room becuase it's too late to change my meal plan. It's soooo much involved and I am trying to be safe and responsible. Pleace continue to pray with me...and give me any advice that you may have THANK YOU

I am seeking your prayers and any words of encouragement that you have to offer. My mother unexpectedly passed away in April '99. The holidays are fastly approaching and I'm really missing her. She was my best friend. Tonight my son looked at her picture and began to tell me some of the things that my mother said to him when he was 1yr old. He was almost 2yrs old when she died. My mother died at home and I live in that house. I not only live in that house but I am now sleeping in the bedroom where she died.
I want her to be here to see my son grow up. I want her to attend my graduation. I want her to be here to give me advice. I know that she's here in spirit but it's just not the same.
Satan is trying to bring me down but he's a lie. I am also stressed with work and school. Satan will try and attack when you are at your weakest point. I know that God allows everything to happen for a reason. Although I did not understand at the time, it was just my mother's time to go. The power of prayer is a wonderful thing. I'm just feeling a little "down" right now but I know that I will get through this. I thank God for everything He's done for me because things could be much worse. Please keep me in your prayers.

You and your son are in my prayers.

MD2BE you are a very stong and intelligent woman so don't lose the faith and strenght that God has given you. I will lift your name up in my prayers! Remember God doesn't put more on us than we can handle!

I need everyone's prayers to lift my spirit. Yesterday, I was told by my thesis committee that I cannot graduate this December. They want me to continue collecting more data and graduate in May 2001. I was so depressed yesterday.
I am handling it a lot better today but I must admit, I am still a little down. I guess I had my hopes up too high, expecting to graduate in December.
11-01-2000, 05:23 PM
I will be praying for you and your son as well.

I would like to pray for the young people in the world.Teenagers especially. I am A health care provider and I hate hearing about these teenagers with multiple sex partners and having multiple sexually transmitted diseases. With the amount of education in the world at this point in time I don't see how they can put themselves in that type of situation.
Please help me pray for the teenagers of today, because sex is their biggest problem.
