Prayer Requests  

I'm new to this community but would like to ask for prayers.

I have 2 separate prayers. The first is this:

I am in desperate need of a financial breakthrough. I have been out of work since January of this year and the bills are piling up and I am not seeing a way out. I have become very discouraged and the only thing keeping me going these days is my faith in God. I have been living solely in His strength for the past 7 or so months but I do not know how much longer I can hold on to Him. Please pray for me that no matter how bad things get in my life that the Lord will make a way for me. I would also like you to pray for my friend who is also in need of a financial breakthrough. Even though she has a good job her debts are drowning her and she finds it hard to keep her faith and trust in God. I ask that you pray for a financial breakthrough for her and her mom, and that you pray for both her and her mom's healing as both are in failing health. Thank you for your prayers.

The second prayer is this (concerning the friend mentioned in the first prayer):

I am not asking prayer for myself. Instead I am asking prayer for my friend (ex-friend), as she has just about ended our friendship, for which I do not blame her, as a result of something I did. I am asking that you pray for her. That she finds it in her heart to talk with me when she needs someone to talk to even if we are no longer friends. I am asking that you pray that God continues to protect her and bless her and heal her in every way. I am asking that you pray that God not only protects her and bless her and heal her but that God does the same for her family, all her family. I pray that even if she never forgives me, or never talks to
me again, that she continues to grow in her relationship with God. I also pray that God takes away this overwhelming grief from my heart for the lost of her friendship, or that He restores the friendship, whatever is His will. Thank you for your prayers.

I will be sure to keep you updated of both situations as they begin work themselves out through God's awesome power.
