    I've received plenty of prayers from my family and friends over the past month, and I just wanted to let you all know they've been answered!

    My employer announced they would be laying off 1000 employees worldwide, 550 in my division, 140 of which in my home town. I came in this morning to work and people were getting called upstairs to HR left and right. Nobody could work, eat, nothing. Everybody was just worried.

    Well I'm happy to announce that I did not get layed off and neither did anybody on my team! I would have been in a bad spot if I'd have been laid off.

    If you all could send a prayer for those who have been layed off, not just here, but all over the country, for them to get back on their feet as soon as possible, that would be awesome.

    Thanks everyone!

    Great news Josh. Seems like the whole U.S.A is sitting on pins and needles. Glad to hear you dodged the bullet on this one. Will continue to pray for everyone out there that 2009 will be prosperous for all and that those less than fortunate that everything works out in the end

    Just thank the Lord for your situation. God wants us to praise Him in good times and bad.

    Sooooo many people are hurting right now, financially, emotionally and spiritually. Some feel like God let them down.

    Lets pray for their spirits to be uplifted. Show your love and compassion.

    If any of you guys or gals know of a family thats hurting, fix them a dinner, pay a bill for them, drop off some groceries, etc....

    No one should go hungry and hurting if lazy (you know what) Christians would do what they are supposed to do!

    Off soap box now.

    God Bless....
