This is my struggle these days. I don't know who I am. I don't know which direction to go in. Where does God want me? How does God want to use me? And am I up to the challenge of serving God? I have stopped going to church, because I don't know where God wants me. I asked my brother if he thought I was stupid and he didn't answer my question. To me, his non-answer spoke volumes to me that he believed that I am stupid and I was so hurt by his non-response. I get the impression that people think they have to take care of me. And I hate that feeling/impression. I have been taking care of myself and my children for the past 10 years....since divorce. Maybe not perfectly (taking care of myself), but I do my best to keep moving forward, taking care of my children and myself. This prayer request probably dosn't make a lot of sense, but I pray that someone will see this and will understand and pray for me. Thank you.

Unsure of where God wants me to be or what to do. I'm so unhappy in my stressful job & yet very scared of being laid off without a plan in place. I've applied at places for over year, had a lot of no responses, quite a few rejections & rejections after interview. I know that God has His plan set, but it is so hard to not know....letting go & letting God is so very hard! I can't see the light on the other side. God has always provided for me in spite of myself, I'm just trying to see what He wants me to learn where I am right now. The stress is affecting me & my son, & some days I just want to give up. With going back to school, 50+ hours at a very stressful job, & single mom to 4th grader, I'm finding it harder every day. I do need to say that I give God the praise for all He has truly blessed me with, just asking for prayers that I can get to a place where I wake up excited for a new day, especially as an example to my wonderful son.

This month has been hard. With the holidays quickly approaching and having car problems this month that are going to cost me around $700.00 things are very tight. I'm a single Mom and things are hard enough. Pray that my car is fixed by the end of the week so I don't have to worry about how I will get to work. Please pray for God to continue to provide for me and my Daughter and to show me how to make ends meet.

Please pray for a family friend, her name is Thea, who has been through a lot of treatment and hospitalization for cancer--it spread to her brain and the doctors don't hold out too much hope for successful treatment anymore. They are taking a break to see how the tumor responds after the last round of radiation, and won't do anything further if it persists and doesn't shrink. She is young (early thirties) with two little girls--one is less than a year old. We are going over in a prayer team tonight to surround her and prayer for healing. I'm not real sure how she feels about God, so we want to be sure that we point her to Jesus and that she will find hope and salvation in the One who is the only source of it. Please pray that the Holy Spirit would guide our words, prayer and actions tonight as we go over there to be with her and her immediate family.
