So Many Need This one prayer.. Prayer for a New Job…

As I go through my day multi-tasking to get things done.. Although I am self-employed and not really where I thought I would be by this time in my life I do feel humbled that I have the opportunities that I have.. I come in contact with people every day that need more in their lives.. For me I have not been the one to wait on a job, I create my “job” but not everyone has that will or desire to do just that.. And that is OK , I do hate to hear and see fear in their voice and as a part of their expression but all I can do is Pray..  Below are a collection of prayers that I have come a crossed and I hope having them in one spot here will bless someone with just a little more strength to better their day ❤

PRAYER FOR A NEW JOB ~

IN THE DAY OF PROSPERITY BE JOYFUL, BUT IN THE DAY OF ADVERSITY CONSIDER: SURELY GOD HAS APPOINTED THE ONE AS WELL AS THE OTHER, SO THAT MAN CAN FIND OUT NOTHING THAT WILL COME AFTER HIM.

Ecclesiastes 7:14

Our most gracious and loving Father,You have most lovingly and graciously said that You have loved us with and everlasting love. We acknowledge, Lord, that Your love for us is deeper that the ocean and bigger than the biggest need in our heart. Father, all my longings lie open before You and my sighing is not hidden from You. I commit myself as well as the need for a new job into Your most precious and loving hands.Lord God, fulfill the desire of my heart and bless the work of my hands. The Bible says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.” I am completely trusting in Your merit and Your faithfulness this hour. I am certain that You can make a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. You can open a way where there seems to be no way. O Lord, as I go through the selection procedures, let Your mighty uplifted hand rest upon me and grant me Your supernatural grace and mercies in the eyes of all the concerned officials. Please perfect everything that concerns me.Father, my ways are not Your ways, neither are my thoughts Your thoughts. Your ways and Your thoughts are higher than the heavens above. Let Your perfect will be done in this matter. Put Your words into my mouth for the interviews and grant me Your wisdom and knowledge. Let Your mighty presence go before me.I render thanks and praises to You alone, Master, because I believe that You have already performed a miracle in my life.Amen.

Pray that they will see opportunity when it approaches.. When it is right for them.. Praying for a sense of normal to come back to this economy before they all forget what normal felt like…

Prayer for Rising Above Fear ~

Dear Lord, please ease our hearts in this world of uncertainty,
As we balance that which we desire with our true need,
As we look for higher values in the midst of material loss,
As we remember the wealth and abundance born of your creation,
And know that as you move us from fear to love,
We will be enriched with the treasures of spirit and peace. Amen
– Rev. Victor Fuhrman

From the deep reaches of my heart and soul,
To the highest love in heaven,
I pray for a healing of my financial situation.

I reach a hand to the abundance of the universe,
And pray that I learn to transform my fear into possibility.
Let me open to all the good that exists in this world.

I lift my head up to the sun
And pray that I am inspired to turn darkness into light.
Let me raise myself up beyond my problems.

I look toward the future and what-could-be
And pray that I can believe in myself and my abilities.
Let me know in my heart that I have great strength.

But I pray that I do not let it own me.
Let me do what I can to bring peace to my financial situation,
And trust that this too will pass.

Blessing to Crisis-Proof Your Relationship ~

May this relationship be blessed.

In times of financial strife,
it is easy to blame your partner
for what is wrong in your life.
Always look deeper for the truth.

May this relationship survive tests.
When things go wrong, It is a chance to show
That you can weather even the harshest storms–together.
Always see your love as bigger than your problems.

May this relationship bring you strength.
When money is tight, you may feel weakened.
Instead, come closer together to solve your problems.
Always focus on the creating the life you want to share.

May this relationship be your safe harbor
There are plenty of things in the world to pull you apart.
Stay strong, two against the world.
Lean into each other and hold on.
Let your relationship be your foundation and your support.

Amen.

– Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

Parents’ Prayer of Protection ~

Dear God, Please bless my children.

For this I pray:
May they thrive in any economy.
May they be safe and protected.
May they be healthy and happy.
May they be uplifted by love.
May they be strengthened by opportunity.
May their days be filled with fun and play.
May all their needs be met—always.
May there be food, clothing, shelter, and comfort.
And may their souls be nurtured no matter the state of our world.
Please bless my children in all ways.

– Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

Wholeness Blessing – We Are Not Broken ~

We walk in troubled times,
But let us not be troubled souls.

We stand in financial challenge,
But let us not see our lives only in crisis.

We have suffered loss, pain, and indignities.
But we have survived, and we will survive.

We have been hurt and we may be broke,
But we are not broken.

Amen.

– Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

Dear God, I Need Cash ~

For this I pray:

Not asking for a million bucks
Or money showing up in trucks
Just need some cash to pay my bills
And financial flow to cure my ills
Not seeking huge amounts
Just enough to make it count
To take care of a basic human need
And take care of those mouths to feed
I know that times are rough
But I want to stand tough
I just need some cash to keep on going
So please God, keep the money flowing.

Amen.

– Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

Prosperity Prayer for All People ~

Dear God, please bring prosperity to all people
and bring healing to those who have been hurt by the economic crisis.
We ask that these basic needs be filled for all people:
Money to pay our bills,
Income to meet our mortgages (rent),
Enough cash to provide proper nutrition and healthy food,
And more than enough for health care and wellness.
Please help us to provide for our families.
Beyond the material needs, please uplift our souls.
Inspire our creativity and resourcefulness.
Guide us in improving our lives.
Help us restore balance to our economy.
Point us toward a brighter tomorrow.
Please help us to hold on to faith.
And let us find peace. Amen.

–Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway

Prayer for Strength of Faith During Difficult Times ~

Father, this world sometimes bewilders me and is beyond my understanding. I see poverty and disease, storms and earthquakes, war and killing. Many hearts are bound by ego and fear. Please strengthen my faith in your higher purpose and open my mind to the truth that everything is unfolding according to your divine plan. Let compassion and love for my brothers and sisters flow from me and may we all be uplifted by your glory. AMEN.

Getting past disappointment ~

When I am disappointed I read. Fortunately lately I haven’t had a ton of reading time. But what transpired this week took me back a bit.. So to take my mind off things I took to reading. Some people drink, some people have other vices they go to but I go to books of knowledge and poetry. Always seems to help me find my way. I love my new iPhone as there is limitless resources just waiting to provide amazing therapy. A comfy pillow, warm blanket and the corner of the couch. Last night I even splurged and added a cup of Hot Chocolate. In reading I found this paragraph..
“Keep Believing in Yourself and Your Special Dreams.
There may be days when you get up in the morning and things aren’t the way you had hoped they would be. That’s when you have to tell yourself that things will get better. There are times when people disappoint you and let you down, but those are the times when you must remind yourself to trust your own judgments and opinions, to keep your life focused on believing in yourself and all that you are capable of. There will be challenges to face and changes to make in your life, and it is up to you to accept them. Constantly keep yourself headed in the right direction for you. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are, and you will also see yourself developing into the person you have always wanted to be.

20121028-155013.jpg

So tomorrow is a new day and I can’t say I know exactly where I am going from here. What I do know is even though there are people that disappoint, I have so many I know I can count on and I trust with my life. So with those people I will continue to create the best future for their families and mine and that God will give me the paths to go down.

So here’s to a amazing future and keeping my “Forevers” close and developing new “Today’s” that will become “Forevers”

Zeek Rewards Closes it’s doors..

Through out the past year of me venturing into the Network Marketing arena.. I have found myself be approached by so many opportunities…  Over whelming at times to say the least.. I was approached about Zeek twice just last week.. Several times in the past year… I am a research junkie.. and so it wasn’t hard for me to find that there were concerns with Zeek.. But that said, people were making money like crazy.. “Get in and get out”, I was told by one person last week.. I wished her will with Zeek and simply made the choice it was not for me..

 

Let me tell you why.. I don’t want to ever be a jumper.. My commitment and my conviction is with Visalus.. I want to build this team for “Forever”

As a kid my mother moved around a lot and to explain what “a lot” means.. I never went to a school for a full School year with out transferring  and the average was 3 schools a year..until I was a Sophomore in High School.. So moving is just not something I am comfortable with.. I have always felt to my core that Visalus was a Forever company.. I am building my business for the years ahead of me not for the right now.. I may not be the fastest runner but I know I am one of the strongest when it comes to team support and longevity…

So for all the Zeek associates out there, My heart goes out to you.. as I know how it would hurt me if the business I had so much passion for suddenly closed its doors..  My thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you as you get through this uncertain time..

Included are some links to more information from news station about the Closing of Zeek Rewards…

A week of reflection…

Picture of Summer Fly's Daughter with her daughters best friend as they support each other.

May 22 I was another year older… No big deal as the day would begin, just another day, another year… The events of that day will forever be remembered for many as the Nation’s deadliest Tornado touches down in Joplin Mo. I went to bed that day just like any other day… I woke up at 2:45 am to find that my husband was not in bed.. A light glowed outside our bedroom door which is our loft office so I called out quietly asking him ” What are you doing” He replied, I remembered I needed to authorize a bill pay payment that he had forgot to do earlier in the day, But then he walked in the bedroom and said, A tornado has hit your brothers town of Joplin… I sat up in bed and said, What? He said it is all over the internet… Normally I am on the computer every day but that day being my birthday we were out and about and I concentrated on time with my kids and stayed off the computer and the TV was not on… so I was unaware of the happenings that day in Joplin… I immediately texted him and called him. Left messages then got up and got online. I was horrified by the devastation… A sense of helplessness was overwhelming me, but to be honest it was also a sense of guilt and fear. Fear that I could lose another immediate family member that I have never met…

You see the internet had led me to a father that I was torn away from as a very small baby.. One that I never met face to face. We talked online, spoke over the phone and always talked of the day that we would actually get together. Then without warning he died of a sudden heart attack… Time lost, and never to return. That day is still as vivid as if it was yesterday and it was actually February 5, 2006, more than 5 years ago… I have 3 half brothers, a step brother and a step sister that I have never met. All but one live in the Joplin area. I sat at the computer that night asking myself “why have I not made it back there…?” I could go on and on about work, finances, money, obligations… but really all just excuses that shouldn’t even exist…

I sit here and look at the devastation that the people of Joplin are dealing with and the loss of life that is so tragic, High school seniors whom lost their lives just leaving graduation… so much tragedy… so much pain… but feeling so blessed that my family and their friends were all spared… a miracle in itself, spared the loss but they are not spared the pain as I am sure it is so painful to be there day in and day out as people are trying to pick up the pieces and move on. I sit here and wish there was some way I could pack up the RV pay all my bills for three months and drive back there and help. My husband is a contractor and I know I could find something to do to help… but again life must go on here and there just is not enough money in the bank to just stop everything and to leave.

God has given me a second chance to take the time to meet my family face to face.. I will make it a priority to make it happen this year.. I am praying to the lord each and every day thanking him for keeping them safe. The outcome could have been so different.

The Holidays are Upon Us!

Well the Holidays are quickly approaching.. It seems earlier and earlier every year the decorating begins… I actually like this as it seems the older I get the faster it comes and goes, so for it to be here a little longer for me is great… My kids are older, (teenagers) so I do miss the excitement of Santa Clause and presents under the tree that they use to once have… Now it is about electronics and vacation. For me it is a time to reflect the end of the year… To give Thanks for all that has been bestowed upon us and to Thank The Lord for all the Paths he has led us on and taken us through. It is a time when I love to watch the Oldies but Goodies like ” A Christmas Carol” , “Miracle on 34th St.” and all the Lifetime Holiday Movies..

It is also a time to enjoy traditions, both old and new.. Some are cooking, vacations spots and gift exchanges.. A time to reach out and see the folks maybe you have not seen all year…. A time to let go of the little things that might have kept you apart.. Now don’t get me wrong… big things sometimes just should stay the way they are, but little things, Let go and enjoy the Holidays with friends and family… I know that is my plan and I hope all of you have a plan in place to get you joyously through this Holiday Season.
