My family and I need a financial breakthrough

by Chris
(Cleveland, OH, USA)

Greetings in the name of Jesus. I live with my mother, my sister, my 6-year-old nephew and my 3-year-old niece. A year ago, my grandmother died after complications from a stroke and my younger brother was sent to prison. Ever since then, we have been in extreme financial struggle and adversity. My mother’s job was to take care of my grandmother. Ever since my grandma went home to be with the Lord, my mother had the most difficult time finding another job. My sister worked as a nursing assistant but had to leave her place of employment because of back problems. I have been the only member of my household bringing in income for the past few months. We are behind on mortgage, utility bills and other overdue bills such as my grandmother’s funeral. I have tried my very best to keep up with the bills, but it is definitely not enough. I have fell behind on my student loans and city tax payments and I am staring down the barrel of legal action if I cannot come up with funds.

My family and I would greatly appreciate it if you can lift us up in praying. We have been doing extensive amounts of praying on our end, but we feel as though we can always use more fellow brothers and sisters in our corner praying for us. Please pray that the Lord show us kindness and mercy on us and bless our finances.

We also realize that there are many other families plagued with financial instability during these times of economic uncertainty. If you can also keep all the families, including ours, lifted up in prayer, then we would greatly appreciate it, and the Lord will definitely bless you for your faith and compassion. I thank you on behalf of my family for taking the time to read this prayer request. I understand that it was a lengthy letter, but thanks for bearing with me. Thank you and God bless.

P.S. Can you also pray for Troy Davis who is a Georgia death row inmate awaiting an appeal in a case for a crime that he is innocent of. Thank you and God bless.
