Hello, everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful summer so far. Thank you for stopping in to read my prayer request. I am writing on this platform because I know you all are praying people and I believe in the power of prayer. I have been trusting God for a long time to make a way out of no way because I have been struggling emotionally, mentally, and financially.

At the moment, I am in  really desperate need of a job. I have had so many doors closed in my face during my job search. Either my resume submissions have been ignored or I have received no response back from interviews. I am literally on the edge of homelessness. I have no money to pay my bills, no money to buy food, no spouse or anyone else to depend on. However, I have a college degree and a lot of professional work experience, but I am still unable to find a job.

The one job that is possibly available for me to have, is one that I am extremely passionate about, have the skills for, and am very capable of doing. I have gone on 4 different interviews for this one job over the past month, even traveling to 3 different cities at each interviewers request just so I can complete the necessary interviews and get this position so I am able to take care of myself. I have still not heard back from the hiring manager with an offer for this position. I have virtually no time left since the end of the month is only a few days away and I will have to let my landlord know if I have to move out.

I am asking all of you who believe in the power of prayer with me to cover me in prayer. I have no where else to turn and do not want to fall into total despair. It's so hard to put into words the loneliness and desperation I feel. Please pray for a job and God's provision in my life. I thank you so much for your prayers in advance. God bless you all.

I just said a prayer for you, Tammy, and I will continue to pray! Our God is faithful and He has promised to take care of our needs. I will ask my family to pray too.

Hi Tammy. I have been in the same position that you're in now and I know how paralyzing and hopeless it can feel to not be able to find a job and fill out application after application and go to interviews and wait for someone to call while you watch your bank account dwindle in the meantime. It's very scary and you might feel like your life is on hold and your whole world is unstable right now, but I just want to encourage you to keep trusting God and that you have more possibilities than you think because the God who made the universe is holding you in the palm of His hand right now. It might be hard to believe that sometimes when we can only see what's right in front of us and God doesn't always answer our prayers how we expect or act as quickly as we would like Him to, but just remember that He can see the whole picture and He is working all things out for your good right in this very moment. I will be praying for you and I hope that you will keep praying and trusting God and seeking after Him and not worry because God's got this and He hears your prayers and He knows what you need before you even ask and He is faithful to provide when we seek Him first.

Hi Adam. Yes, it does feel paralyzing and hopeless. Especially when you're capable, willing, and ready to work while falling deeper and deeper into debt. I agree with you that God does everything in His time and He knows what's best for us. This period has been a true test of faith, yet it has drawn me closer to God every step of the way. I will never give up on God because He has never given up on me. I'm very thankful to you for your encouragement. People often underestimate how a simple, kind word of encouragement can go a long way to lift someone's spirits. I appreciate you taking the time out when you didn't have to. I'm glad to know that you are no longer in the same position. Thank you for your prayers and God bless.
