    I normally frequent the depression and caregiver board but just found this one. I'm not going to go into much detail unless you want me to but basically I need some prayers that my husband and I will get through this financial crisis we are in. I'm not working due to a broken arm and torn ligaments in my wrist and probably won't get back before November. It is getting really tough to pay everything that needs to be paid. I do get sick pay but it's only 50% of my regular salary. At times it was tough making it on 100% let alone 50%. I'm not even talking credit cards (have but don't want to use) or car payment (have 2 older cars...no payment). Just food, rent, etc. And with the cold weather coming, I'm even more scared with the skyrocketing heating costs. I've been praying myself constantly and more at night before bed but maybe a group prayer would help more.

    Thanks so much

    Welcome to the Worship Board, We are all so glad that you chose to join us.

    I'm so sorry that you have a borken arm, I know what you are going through with your financial situation, I have been there several times myself.

    I will certainly be praying that you have a successful and quick recovery and I will also be praying for your financial situation.

    I'm sitting here crying as I read this. You are all such wonderful people and as I feel I have a home on the depression board for dealing with that problem. I feel so much more at home here. You can be sure I'll be back frequently. I feel so blessed to know people like you.

    My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

    Financial problems are devastating in themselves. Having other problems on top of them, just make's it even more difficult.

    Know that God is watching over you, and that we are too..

    Love,

    Dear Jean,
    I will keep you and your husband in my prayers during this hard time for you. Can you call and make arrangements to have any of your bills reduced and explain the reason because of your injury? I broke my wrist in February , fell on ice, of course it was my left and I am left handed but my employer let me work and learn to write with my right hand! Whatever you have to do you will be in my prayers for peace that only God can give and trust me the group here are great prayer warriors!
    I find if I find other problems to pray for they make mine easier to handle.
    Blessings,
    Laurie

    What beautiful prayers have come to you on this board. It's my first time here today too and it won't be my last. Such a strong group of prayer warriors. Where two or more are gathered......

    I join in their prayers for your financial burdens to lift and that meanwhile you are blessed with grace and wisdom.

    Dear Jean,
    Let's pray together! Dear Lord we ask that you deliver Jean and her husband from their financial worries. Lord, we know that you want them to prosper and not suffer. Lord, please continue to keep a loving watch over them and send unexpected bounty to them. I pray that they reach out to you during this time to lean upon you as you are always willing to be leaned upon. Lord you are so strong to hold all of us up! We thank you for the goodness in their life that you have given them. We know you will add more blessings for them.

    Lord, we ask that you help Jean with a speedy recovery so that she may be able to help provide for her family. We ask that when you heal her that you make the broken area doubly strong so there will be no risk of future injury. Lord, keep loving guardian angels around Jean and her husband- help keep them safe and thier spirits light.
    AMEN!

    Blessings,
    Carlie
    Jean I totally understand what you are going through right now- as I am going through something quite similar. Keep your faith strong.[This Message was Edited on 09/04/2004]

    Laurie you were very lucky your employer let you work with a broken wrist. Mine said no way...well at first they said maybe but due to the torn ligaments I am in a cast from my fingertips to my shoulder. I don't even want to think of the therapy afterwards.
