    I don't know any of you because I usually hang out in the Fibro room or the depression room, but I need your help. My family is going through a major life change right now and could use some prayers. Our family has been going through a foreclosure for the past year. We filed a bankrupcty to hold it off, but were still unable to improve our situation financially (both our jobs are slow due to the economy). We are both working 2 jobs. Now we are just weeks away from loosing our vehicles and our home. We have tried all the community resources to no avail and are trying to ready the house for possible sale if necessary, which will still leave us and our 5 children homeless after payoff of the mortgage. We have no where to go and after all of this our credit will prevent us from renting. Meanwhile, the last year has brought us all a lot closer to God. I am more active in my church than I have ever been and I wake every day seeking his word for comfort. Satan would like to keep us in this pit and continue spitting in our faces every time we try to smile. We could use all the prayer we can get because we know the more prayers, the more power to beat this! Thanks for listening and your prayers.

    Our family too has went through the bankruptsy, and losing our vehicles and the house. It will be a year ago, in March that we moved into a new home.

    We too had a time with finding one with bad credit. I feel the Lord guided us to where we are now. Its a small house, yet its "enough" for us. I find myself compalaining about lack of privacy, or lack of room. Then stop and thank the Lord for what we do have.

    It took our Income Tax Return last year, to move. They wanted two months rent in advance, along with a security deposit. The rent is not high, and we are able to stay in the same school district, which is a wonderful one.

    With the bankruptsy we went through, we didn't do foreclosure. We just forfeited the house back. Along with the vehicle. We had one vehicle we kept, it was paid off allready. If its a real struggle to keep the house. Then try moving. We stayed at the house as long as we could. We neither work. Only income is my husbands workers comp.

    I will be praying you find another place to live at soon. I feel for you all, and understand.

    This economy sure is hard on sooo many people!!I pray it turns around. Many are suffering-my husband is in sals and i am on disability, so i sure understand!

    Dear Lord, You who are aware of the numbers of hairs on our heads, the sparrows , You who are all seeing and all knowing, I pray for sad and those in this situation. Lord, our hope is in You. I ask , in the precious Name of Jesus that You will sustain this family of 7 and those of like manner. That You will provide as You have said in Your Word, and Your Word is true.
    Lord, hold fast onto them and all in dire need Lord. Where there seems no way, by faith, we believe that You are working in this situation right now. Lord, I pray that you will bind that devil that brings down and to doubt. Encourage and make the way for this dear family, Lord, I pray in Jesus Name. Amen

    I sent my prayers for you too. I know bankruptcy and losing your home is very stressful. When you start looking for a new place to live, be honest & upfront with the potential landlord of your situation. Remember; in these trying ecomonic times, lots of people have had financial problems.

    Check back with the community resource agencies and see if they can reccommend any landlords that might be willing to work with a person who has had financial problems.
