  5. Please help pray for my family. I am afraid that my husband is getting ready to quit his job without having another one first. He is very unhappy at work and has been looking for a new job for several months. My fear is that he will walk away from a good paying job with health benefits and our sons and I will suffer for it. I have great empathy for what he has gone through in the last year. All of us have suffered. I'm scared of how we are going to make it financially, but then a thought came to me this morning. I am not to depend on him, but depend on God for our every need. Even in the midst of angst and turmoil, God is always there. Please help pray for us in the days and weeks to come that God will provide a way for us. Please help pray for my sons. I am starting a new job next week, but before I do I have another job interview on Friday this week. Please help pray that God puts me where He wants me to be. Thanks! Please also pray for all those seeking employment.

  7. Hello
    I am a college student from India. We were born and brought up Protestants. Our family got converted to Catholicism a year ago. My family (a brother and parents) is really going through hard times for a few years now. No financial stability. Parents are always fighting. It makes me feel sad that a Christian family is in such a condition. Money is the reason. We don't have enough. We are a pious family... I don't know where we are going wrong. What I have to do. There is no peace in the house. It feels like God's not answering our prayers. Please help us. Pray for us.
