Paul wrote, “I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” - Philippians 4:12 (NIV)

I am going through a prolonged period of unemployment. In the past, I had always been able to find work. But during this current period of unemployment, I have come to accept that I will experience hardships in my life.
Hardships are not necessarily times of judgment or 
punishment. Good...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, take away our fear as we face hardships. Give us peace in knowing and trusting you. Amen.

Those who are unemployed


Respond by posting a prayer.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
