Ongoing prayer for these two needs that we have been waiting on. 1)Listing and sale of our home. Our home has been listed and relisted 4 times in past 3 years. This time it has been listed for over 60 days and we have had no offers. The reason we are wanting to do this is to take a step to being mortgage free, but as we have reduced the price of our home the smaller homes have and are consistently going up in price. We are at the lowest price we can go where it would still benefit us to downsize. If we reduce any further we might end up with a much smaller home and still owing the same as we do now, but maybe worse since most of the houses we see are in need of carpet, floorings, paint even cabinets. I was really hoping and praying that if house was going to sell that it would before school started and fall season started. It is a lot of work, stress having house on the market. It also stalls and interrupts things. If we were going to stay put here there are things I like to further improve and change like move the rose bushes back and add a hedge of Japanese boxwood, or maybe tear out some of the concrete to put a playset for my son. I don't want to do those things and put more money into house if we should sell to downsize. Next week we start school. I homeschool my son. I didn't want to have to deal with having to stop what I'm doing to get the house ready to show and having to be out when people call or when agent holds an open house. When the house is going to be shown everything gets picked up and put away then we have to leave the house for some time. Please Pray that if this is in Gods will and a wise thing to do that God will send a buyer soon. If not that God will clearly reveal to us for us to stay put. 2) My application for Disability Retirement. Finally after 4 years it is going to the board of retirement with a recommendation. Please pray that it will be recommended for approval and not denied. I have a permanent and progressive disability and had to stop working 4 years ago. Also, that I will receive my back pay in time to put into whatever house God leads us to buy if we are to sell and downsize

I am struggling greatly and I ask for your prayers. My father is sick, please pray that he and my mother will have emotional and physical peace. Also, my true love and boyfriend has been receiving too much attention and advances from a beautiful young woman and I am very afraid of losing him. Please pray that he will reject this temptation, and that he will remember my loyalty, love and true devotion over years, and that we will be brought together in marriage. Finally, these two issues have taken a toll on my work, please pray I will succeed at the office and not quit or be fired. I am TRULY grateful for your prayers during this very hard time.
