    Default Please pray for my family

    My husband found out at work last night that he will no longer be employed by his company due to the companies recent bankruptcy and restructuring plan. He has 10 days left. We have 5 children from 4-15 years. He applied for a new job today with several companies. Please pray that my husband finds a job quickly, as we have gone through our savings and the kids college funds over the past 4 years of paycuts and benefit cuts. We have lost everything we've worked for our entire marriage and will soon lose our house that we have tried so hard to save. They even took $10,000 out of our 401K two weeks ago! (Anyone over 15 years got that taken out and it was different amounts for other #'s of years)
    I truly believe in the power of prayer. God will not forsake my family. Just this morning, a new neighbor behind me called asking if I knew of anyone who could babysit her 2 year old while she goes back to work. God does provide...at least now I will have money for food every week. PLEASE keep us in your daily prayers.

    I have been debating with myself all day whether or not to post this. I didn't want to come across as a whiner looking for sympathy. In the end, I figured if the shoe was on the other foot I would not feel that way about anyone here. We are all brothers and sisters in God's family. I know from other threads that there are many religious people on this forum who will pray for my family as a simple act of kindness. To those I say...God bless and keep you and yours!

    It would take a lot of courage for me to do what you did, so I applaud that. If you so fervently believe in prayer, you should be proud that you are doing what you believe is necessary to help your family. It really does speak to your strength.

    Nobody thinks you're a whiner, quite the opposite. I will wish you strength and a whole lot of refrigerators.

    Thanks to all who have been praying. You are right. There are 300 others affected at my husbands company...just in Cincy alone!!
    Ford motor company is laying off, too. This Cincy/Northern Kentucky area is getting hit very hard. I was so selfish yesterday only thiking of myself. (I had my pity party and now I'm over it) Please keep ALL Delta and Ford employees who are afftected in your thoughts and prayers...we're all in the same boat and it's sinking fast.

    Default prayer

    dreamer, you have those prayers. What a wonderful gift we have to be able to help each other with prayers.

    Also, as holli suggested, do some research on that 401 bust. The government that controls that is called ERISA. Not sure they have done anything illegal, with the necessity of vesting, et., its definately something to investigate. If they have tapped into everyone, I'm sure they researched their legal ramifications first.

    Someone else was having trouble after loosing a job here on the site. There was some wonderful suggestions for making extra cash, etc. I'll try to find it for you and send a PM.

    Prayers and concerns...benz.
    Dreams really do come true!

    dreamer-
    You are DEFINITELY in my prayers. In the last 4 years at my company, over 70,000 people lost their jobs, so I've been surrounded by people in similar situations. And I've seen the POWER OF PRAYER in the these people's lives! I have complete faith that your trust in the Lord and willingness to make this a testimony to Him will bring you out on top. The apostle Paul thanked God for the numerous trials sent against him, as they gave him opportunites for God to work in his life, and show others the awesome power and love of God.

    I look forward to hearing your powerful testimony of the resolution of this situation!

    Blessings,
    Steve

    p.s. Sorry if that got a little preachy. Very little fires me up like God at work in people's lives.
