Prayer Request

I have a prayer request, and I would appreciate all prayers. I have a close friend named Tracy. Her sister Tiffany (whom I also have become friends with) is in the Air Force reserves and got called up yesterday. She's being sent to Afghanistan. As you all know, this is one of the most dangerous places to be right now. We are all really worried. Please pray that the Lord will give her courage, strength, faith and hope, and that God will protect her as only He can. Also, please pray for her relationship with the Lord.
I have been praying for a miracle; that between now and Saturday (when she'll leave her base for Afghanistan), they'll decide they don't want her.
Thank you everyone - so much!

Will definitely remember her in my prayers. And if you think of it, could you pray for me as well? I am working as a consultant and just found out that my contract may be cut shorter than expected. Ie. I may be without work in two weeks, not at the end of May like I was expecting.

I will pray for you, Sula. I know exactly where you're at. I work contract, also, and the times they are tough. Thanks for your prayers, also.

80s...I'll be praying for her.

And I have a prayer request of my own to make...

My brother just joined the military and signed up for a combat unit...so he might be going to war also. I pray that he won't be sent over. But this request is also for me at the same time...I am having a hard time dealing with it. You see, I am an absolute pacifist and it's killing me to think that I won't be able to support his actions if he has to go to the warfront...to tell the truth, I don't agree with him joining the military at all, but it's for his own good. I'm really struggling right now with how I can still support him and show my love for him even if he has to take actions that I cannot under any circumstances agree with. So please pray for my brother first of all, and pray for me to be able to know what path I should take in this situation...

Thanks

Oh dear! I'm so very sorry to hear that....seems like everyone is facing job instability this season (I just got cut from 15 hours a week to 6 ). I'll extend my prayer for ya anytime sula.

hippy: I'm sorry to hear of your situation. I know where you are, a lot of my friends are going into the military after graduation, and it makes me so nervous to know that these 18 year old young men will be going over there....good news is that they won't have the training for a while. On top of that, it's really only special forces over there right now, and those are the people who are EXTREMELY well trained for this sort of stuff. I'll put you in my next prayer as well.

Tiffany, Sula, Hippy and Hippy's brother = people in my prayers.

The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

Thanks Lilly and Like O2.

And my brother is training to be in the special forces. He'll be part of a surveillance team dropped behind the lines to set up sations for the troops...so who knows? I'm just discouraged by the whole thing. It's really hard to see where my heart should be on this matter, one of those times in my life when I'm asking for all the help I can get.

I was wondering what all of you thought if this became a post that always will remain open for any of us, or people we know who may need our prayers. You could use this post to respond back with how the situation you asked prayer for is going, and especially how God answered your prayer, and may not have answered your prayer, but knowing that any answer He gives is His best answer. Just want to know what you all think about this idea?

Chris

Forget it, that was an awfully dumb question to ask online. I'll just put what I would've said here.

I just wanted to apologize for the way I replied in a FYM thread of yours. That was rude of me. I'm trying my best to follow through with the last line in the Prayer of Jabez: "that I may not cause pain". Anyway, I apologize. Take care, you're in my thoughts.

Hi, I didn't know what to say when you asked for my email, so I initially gave it to you, but then edited it out, because there are a couple of people over in the Free Your Mind forum that, quite frankly, I wouldn't want to have my email (a couple of them don't like me much at all).
However, thanks for the apology. I don't even remember what you said, but it must not have been that bad, because I remember the really bad ones.

Everyone, thanks for the prayers for Tiffany. We've got several churches in our area praying for her, and to think that people on this forum who don't even know me or Tracy or Tiffany are uniting in prayer over the situation - WOW! that's an awesome thought! Hippyactress, I will pray for your brother, and for your peace. Even though you don't support the war, you support your brother, and that will be evident in your prayers.

I think that's a great idea, Chris. And if it gets really large and unweildy we can start another one. Mebbe a new one each month or something. But still, I like the idea of gathering our prayer requests so we can all help carry each other.

Oh and one update on my situation...it looks like my contract will indeed be ending in two weeks. So I suppose my request is now for prayer that I will be able to network well, get a polished resume together, and find a job that will sustain me through the next few months. I'm nervous to be sure, but change is good.

Sula, speaking of networking, what do you do?
I create multimedia presentations/CDs and I also do documentation/help files.

Good question. I wish I knew! lol. No really, I am just about done with a B.S. in Finance, but I've been working as an IT consultant for the past three years. Started off doing mainly administrative project assistant work but have progressed to more of a project coordination/business analyst role lately. I don't have enough experience yet to be the actual "project manager" (unless it was a small-scale project) but I'm basically the right-hand (wo)man to the manager.
