Prayer Is Needed

Greetings to Everyone,

How many of you have lost your jobs, home in foreclosure, in the wake of this economic crises, or feel some what distress? It not easy going it alone, so let's get on one accord post your prayer request today! Let others know so we could pray for your needs.

I personally want you to pray for our family. I lost my job on yesterday 3/20/09, but I know my God is able! Yes, I'm human, I wasn't mad, but just a bit sadden that it happened! However, I was lifted spiritually, on yesterday evening, my husband came in with food from his job, and after doing an interview this afternoon at Empowered Christian Women Talk Show , my guest Sherri Keys, song a beautiful song on the show that started my tears to flowing. I wasn't trying to plug the show, but I just wanted to let you where one or two are gathered in my Jesus name, God will show up to comfort your soul.

As I was typing a scripture fell into my spirit for you, some of you may feel so overwhelmed in this economy:

"I have been young and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread". Psalms 37:25 (So, don't fret... just remember what David stated

And here another scripture that really snapped me back to "Trust in GOD"!

"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have; for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee"! Hebrew 13:5

Wow! This encourage me, and I hope that it encourage YOU! If you don't have a prayer request, just leave a comment on my guestbook!
Be Blessed!
Evelyn J. Johnson aka Lady Evelyn J.
