Pray For My Job Search
There is a reasonable chance, I'm told, that my job may end. I pray and search for another one, as I've done for a year (this job is a temp job) but have had little success.
Please be praying for me.

Peter9556: I agree.

-Adetunji on 7/14/13: Intentionally remaining in Him is of course the most important. Or at least never willfully straying from Him, for like Paul we may believe we are following God but not be following Him

lidia4796: Thank God, thank you. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing(Ps.34:10).

Hello,to bro.Adetunji with all respect, God always good to me, I believe there have been times, He would have blessed me more but, I was not prepared or / for sure God knows if it really would have been best for me, like you say be in His will.Also,Sis.Shira4368 been praying for you hope you be alright, I had other posts but, of coarse they have to accomadate everyone. Just want you to know I did not forget about you. Love of Jesus!

grandma, you are absolutely right about the will of God. many think they can just pray for "things" and God should answer them because they are good. God will answer a christian who prays but it must be the will of God and He may wait a long time to even answer and then it may be what we don't want to hear.

If you need a job. Go out and sow the Gospel NOT judgment of people but the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God has made very body equal by giving us all the same measure of faith. No one has more the anybody. To let people know that Gospel truth will take condemnation away from them and help set them free. When you start doing that you will get a job offer that will blow your mind.

Peter9556: God does make a way(always) for us where there seems to be no way Isaiah 43: 15-21. Our part is to "avoid disobeying God intentionally" and live in His will. When we prayerfully remain in Him, He will always provide our need(s) (Ps.23:1-2).
---Adetunji on 7/14/13|
bro. Peter, I belief in my heart that you will be just fine. So many people are going through some hard times all over the world. Some worse then others. So many people hurting. The minute I want to feel sorry for myself I remember how much worse others have it then me. In reality, I am very much bless to live where I live, have what I have, for many do not even have a home to go to. I pray for you and family Peter, that God increases many things in your life. And strengthen you every time you need it. And hope a job turns out that really helps you and family.

Actually Jesus and John were preaching repentance to people with zero time as christians.
"I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
"I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."
Him who repents is whom receives the word of God and lives in it and will live by it:
"For I have five brethren, that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets, let them hear them."
The word of God is life and makes for a better life, Matthew 7:24-25
---Nana on 7/12/13|
Peter, you are correct. The longer we are in Christ, the more we can recognize sin in our lives. It is a cleaning process by the Holy Spirit in our lives. There is sin in our hearts that we do not realize until we read the Word of God, and the word convicts us we were wrong, and we confess it to the Lord. One day we will be changed completely. For now we should be glad we have access to God spiritually. We can worship Him in Spirit and Truth. One day we will be complete.
---Mark_V. on 7/10/13|
Catherine: Yes, all, myself included, love sins, and there are sins stuck somewhere in myself. I deal with some, and as some are removed I find others deeper in myself.
Thank you for reminding me to always seek deeper and keep, for the rest of my life, to keep fighting
thanks for your prayers for my job

Gordon, All descendants of Adam need Christ, we as belivers can say that, they don't believe they are in need of Christ but we do, you should also. If a person humbles himself before the Lord it is because God had already made him alive together with Christ. Spiritually alive. Only then will he humble himself. Unbelievers do not humble themselves.
Only those chosen by God from before the foundation of the world, will be physically born at a certain time, they will receive the gospel with power and with the Holy Spirit with much assurance (1 Thess. 1:4,5). No believer knows who these people are, so they preach the gospel to as many as they can. If someone receives Him, it is because they are already born of God (John 1:12,13).
---Mark_V. on 7/5/13|
Men loves their sins. And God knows who you are! You who loves your sins. God is looking for people who needs Him. Most believe they don't need Him. I NEED HIM. More than anyone, God said so....I truly pray you find another good job. Stay in prayer, learn to endure!
---Catherine on 7/2/13|
Mark V, Help me to understand what you believe, will you?
You say on a regular basis that only certain people are chosen to be Saved. That only certain people are predestined as GOD's Elect, and the rest of humanity were only created for Damnation.
But, on this Blog, you say the opposite of what you normally preach, "Everyone", you now say here, "is in need of the Lord. If only they humble themselves and give all their cares to the Lord."
Which is it, Mark?
Only a certain "Elect" are saved and cared for by the LORD?
Or, does "everyone" have a chance at Salvation and for answered prayers?
---Gordon on 7/2/13|
Peter, I also pray to God for you and your family. What I do know is that whatever answer He brings, is the correct answer even if you do not agree with it at the moment.
The main thing believers have right now while in the flesh is access to God. We can now go before the Lord through Jesus Christ. He is speaking on our behalf. Unbelevers do not have this access. So many people are struggling right now, with jobs, marriage, children, and so on. Everyone is in need of the Lord. If they only humble themselves and give all their cares to the Lord, He will answer in many ways. We might see the results until years later in many cases. Peace brother
---Mark_V. on 7/2/13|
Peter, Jesus in His humanity was just like us, not knowing some things, yet knew many things no one else did. He grew up like us, felt pain, the need of help himself from the Father. His coming was to be obedient to the Father unto death. When you say Jesus, you have to remember about His humanity. Just think of all those who pray to God and ask for their love ones to live and they do. And many others pray to God and nothing happens. It is the will of God that is been done. Only God knows what is ahead for each one of us. People think they are on their own, but they are been directed by God.
If it is the will of God for a person to live till they are 80, they will live until they are 80.
---Mark_V. on 6/28/13|
Grandma: on the one hand I am willing to agree yes.....
But WHY would Jesus, the one person in human form to know know the Father's will, in this one case NOT know that Father's will
I in no way argue with your point
I just mean that if, at one point in His life, even Jesus could pray and not be sure if that prayer would be answered (I do not agree with those who say that Jesus would pray a prayer that He knew would not be answered, for even desiring something that is not the Father's will is not right)
I just mean that if Jesus did not know if the prayer was to be answered, now much more for us?
We can hope for more faith, but if Jesus once was forced to pray without certainty, it may also happen to us
---Peter9556 on 6/27/13|
Moderator permit-Father God those words you gave if we ask in your name,by faith you make a way where seem there is none..please,give thst special touch on that resume,open request,whatever or how ever right now our sister Shira4368, her son really need you to open a door to avenue of employment.please help him & anyone else.in need of a job in jesus name.amen
---lidia4796 on 6/24/13|
Peter: In reference to Jesus prayer, you left out the most important part. He prayed, "Not my will, but yours be done." When we pray for God's will, that prayer is always answered.
---Grandma on 6/24/13|
Two things, since I started this blog:
1) The job that I was going to get for next year has been 'cancelled due to funding problems' (together with about 50 other jobs, I hear), so please keep me in your prayers.
2) Warwick and Cliff had discussed about prayer and yes, Jesus said about receiving what we ask - but remember Jesus own prayer that he be saved, that night, which was not answered. Even Jesus prayed once for something He did not get - so the same will happen to us
---Peter9556 on 6/23/13|
Warwick , The "why" is an important part of the "whole picture"
Jn. 3 16 "God so loved (passed tense) the world..."
What world? not this one 'cause he said "do not be loving the world ..." (the one that satan corrupted)
No! The one He loved and sacrificed his son to redeem was the "original" one He proclaimed GOOD!
He purposed it, He will do it!
The "world" he made for us in the past will yet be realized in the near future!
A beautiful paradise as he intended! Why? for His joy!
---1st_cliff on 6/22/13|
Cliff you asked why God created. What you have provided doesn't say why.
I would agree that much of today's evangelism focusses too much on getting to heaven. In reality salvation is firstly about avoiding hell, then secondly going to heaven. I suppose the going to heaven (not mentioning hell) is an easier 'sell.'
---Warwick on 6/22/13|
Warwick, I believe God stated His intentions in Gen.1.
He made a beautiful earth correct distance from the sun (93 million miles) on a 23 1/2 degree axis , perfect for mankind.
Then He said "be fruitful multiply fill the earth..".etc.
Scripture says man is lower than angels ,of which He has some 100 million.(in heaven)
This does not indicate He intended to put more (persons?) in heaven of a lesser value!
God did not change His mind about earth being man's home!
Satan put the idea in motion saying "you will be like God"
Evangelist's favorite saying "I'm going to heaven"!
---1st_cliff on 6/21/13|
Cliff, our winters are not really cold but I love it when the day after the shortest day arrives-spring, and summer are on the way. Praise God!
Why did God create it all? Tough question: it all comes down to God being in essence a Creator who derives pleasure from creating. Revelation 4:11 God is worthy "to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created..." Colossians 1:16 reiterates the point: "All things were created by him and for him."
Genesis 6:7 says God decided to wipe mankind from the face of the earth because they became so sinful-"I am grieved that I ever made them." I am glad He spared Noah and his family or it would have been all over.
---Warwick on 6/21/13|
Warwick, Today is our longest day of the year and your shortest.. we're that far apart. I hope we're closer in our quest for truth!
What you call "overall context I call "the big picture"
Think on this...What was God's intention in creating the earth and people?
Did he change his mind?
Today's evangelism is all about going to heaven...where did the train go off the track???
---1st_cliff on 6/20/13|
Cliff I am glad you don't dislike me. I likewise feel no animosity towards you. You are at least a friendly challenge. I like challenges and spent 2 hours on radio, on Monday night answering questions from believers and sceptics. Very challenging but well worth it. Maybe you could phone up and give me a hard time next month?
I have found that constant reading from Genesis to Revelation has made Scripture much clearer for me, as things makes much more sense when viewed in overall context. I also detour when reading through to investigate things which are difficult to understand, on the surface. I also regularly ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten my reading. I am also blessed with a pastor whose preaching is well researched, and rounded.
---Warwick on 6/20/13|
When we pray we must pray according to the concept that God established.
God is not a Vegas slot machine that pays off each time we drop the prayer coin.
God has established two requirements for our prayers to be answered.
1. John 9:31... we must be a worshiper/saved that does God's will.
2. Psm 66:18.... we must not continue in sin.
God always answers prayer according to His will. Many are not satisified with God's will. That is why their prayers seem to not be answered.
Then, we allow Satan to hamper our prayers and whine because God hasn't bowed to our will in our timeline.
---Elder on 6/19/13|
Warwick, Let me say first that I really do appreciate your sincerity and a heart full of Christian love. We don't see eye to eye but I don't think it's reason enough to dislike you!
We have a common enemy bound and determined to ruin our chances of salvation.
The bible is not as black and white as it appears (his doing) The onus is upon you and I to properly interpret it's true meaning!
As God is logical and reasonable, so His message is also, much I see on here is neither!
---1st_cliff on 6/19/13|
Cliff, from long experience I know you distrust much of Scripture. I see many prayers answered but none the less see more not answered. However this does not stop me praying. I will continue to pray that you will gain strong faith in the truth of God's word. This is vital as prayer works when done in faith. Scripture says that without faith it is impossible to please God.
---Warwick on 6/19/13|
A servant, Given the fact that no original manuscript exists.
Which manuscript has the God breathed words seeing that they differ?
Each time a bible version is updated the words change.
Your argument is fruitless!
---1st_cliff on 6/19/13|
1st cliff-consider this
"In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
Every word in accordance with the Word Himself is God-breathed, whether or not you recognize it as so.
---A_servant on 6/18/13|
Warwick, My skepticism stems from the fact that it says "ask and it WILL be given"
You've always said you take things at face value.
This particular verse , as written ,just isn't so!
Though I believe scripture I do not think EVERY word is God-breathed!
---1st_cliff on 6/18/13|
Cliff I do not know why some prayers are not answered, but many are. What about Paul's 'thorn'? God did not remove it though Paul repeatedly prayed about it. Why? God knows.
Millions of Christians in atheistic or Islamic countries are persecuted, and killed but God seems to do little about it. Why?
Asia Bibi a Christian woman is in prison in Pakistan, under threat of execution on a false blasphemy charge. Despite prayers God leaves her there. Why? That does not stop me praying. I prayed for you just now that God would replace your scepticism with faith. I do hope He does so. See John 6:67-Jesus asked the apostles if they also were going to leave Him. Peter said Where would we go?
Where would we go Cliff?
---Warwick on 6/17/13|
Cliff, Warwick, don't argue about thisl......
I see the point it both of your point
Of course I know that I must - and am - looking for a job
But I am also praying that God would guide me into what place I be looking for jobs (for now one can look at so many places to find jobs), see how I will write up my application
So there are things that God expects me to do. But then there are things where I know that even when I do those things, there are times when I have to ask for God's help, even as I try my best
Blessings to both of you
P.S. My job will end at the end of October, but my boss has found another job is starting in November and is trying to help me be a good applicant for that job
---Peter9556 on 6/17/13|
Warwick, **we are to pray to him for our needs . end of story**
So your bible reads at Psl.23. "The Lord is my servant I shall not want"??
I would like to know why your prayers are answered but 6 million prayers in the holocaust were ignored!
---1st_cliff on 6/17/13|
Cliff, you wrote "God is not in the employment business!
The onus is on you to find your own work!"
My point is that God says we are to pray to Him for our needs, end of story.
And "Even Paul worked as a tent maker!" We have every reason to believe Paul prayed for work, and no sound reason to believe otherwise.
Your scepticism precludes you from having your prayers answered by God, as His reaction is to faith, not doubt.
I pray daily for those who suffer. You should too! I have seen the most amazing, and specific answers to prayer.
---Warwick on 6/17/13|
Warwick, Matt.7.7 may have been so back two thousand years ago, but today (from personal experience) it just isn't so!
30,000 children die each and every day from hunger related causes and they are not all heathen! Do you imagine that no one prayed in Oklahoma during the tornadoes?
Satan is still prince of this world!
---1st_cliff on 6/16/13|
The best advice I have is to declare your faith. Tell God that you trust Him for this situation. Also, make the choice to believe in His promises. It's easy to become overwhelmed by life, I know. I was in this same boat a few months ago, but God moved mountains so I could keep my job. It's hard but just have faith in Him, no matter what happens.
---Isis on 6/16/13|
Cliff God's word outranks our opinions.
Matthew 7:7 Jesus says "Ask, and it will be given to you, seek, and you will find, knock, and it will be opened to you."
Matthew 18:19, Jesus again "Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven."
Philippians 4:6 "do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."
Good employment is not a whim but a need and God cares about our needs.
---Warwick on 6/15/13|
Given that Greece is in financial turmoil, thousands are looking for meaningful jobs. If God finds you employment He will have to find employment for all other Christians ,not only in Greece but everywhere jobs are scarce!
From my personal experience ,God is not in the employment business!
The onus is on you to find your own work! Even Paul worked as a tent maker!
---1st_cliff on 6/14/13|
whether or not you keep this job, the only advice I would give is that you ask the Lord to keep you, the Shepherd knows better than the sheep.
---A_servant on 6/13/13|
athiest, r those who are looking for jobs. Not many Christians are looking. That is because many are like u are not saved. Do u have a job?I can tell you if u have a job u better thank somebody. Something else....God will always take care of his own.
---shira4368 on 6/13/13|
Prayer does not work. If it did then employment would be 100% along with religious belief.
