I am requesting prayer tonight for myself.

My financial situation has caught up with me. I have to deal with a creditor to a credit card company tomorrow in which I owe a significant amount of money. I have no money to send them. I have no job right now. Please pray for me tomorrow with that situation and with finding a full-time teaching position.

I already talked to the company twice and made arrangements with lower payments but could not afford the lower payment anymore. I can not afford anything right now. I received my last check for the school year for substituting and it has to last me until September unless something comes available first.

I have all intentions of paying all my debts when I get a job but can not fulfill my obligation right now. You may ask, why did I get in so much debt. Well 99 % of it is from awhile ago and it was so much I just could not get ahead ever.

To say I am scared is an under statement. I just want to go in a hole and hope it will go away but I know I have to deal with it.

PLease just pray.

((((Becky))) I will pray for you. You know, we have a lot of credit card debt too; my pastor said most people live on 108% of what they earn (so of course we had to use credit to do so). When the financial stuff started crumbling close to two years ago we stopped using our credit card and I consolidated all our debt onto one card with a lower interest rate (I wanted to pay some interest because I wanted to be reminded how we got ourselves into this mess in the first place). It is going to take us another 2 years to pay off the balance (or sooner if son becomes self sufficient, LOL) but like you, we do intend to pay it off.

I will pray that God will give you the right words to say and that the person you talk to will be compassionate and be able to help offer solutions for you.

let us know what happens!!

Hey Becky...
Well...I hate that for you. There's nothing much more stressful than financial woes.
There are agencies to help folks in credit binds, have you tried any of those?
I'll be keeping you in my prayers! In the meantime, check into doing some stuff from home, or like I did a few years ago, loan closings for places like Ditech and HomeLenders, etc. Google "Signing Agent" and see if that would be something you'd be interested in doing. There are other things you can do, too. God has not forgotten you, I promise!
