Prayer for tough times
« on: October 17, 2009, 06:35:06 PM »
Can I ask everyone to please put Gordon and Tina on your prayers?  My husband is going on 6 months unemployed now and the long-term future is looking grim.  I just don't know what's going to happen to our family and home.

Thank you so much.  Prayer for a job is the only thing I know to do anymore.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
