Need Some Prayers

Malaysia
August 22, 2008 5:11pm CST
I am facing a tough time right now. I recently lost my dear grandpa and now I have a study loan, which I need to pay for at least RM7000 (US $2053) in one week. I just started working and I do not know what to do, for I don't have enough savings. I cannot ask for help from my dad, as obviously he has a lot of things to deal with right now, with my grandpa's passing and all. I need some prayers from all of you, my MyLotter friends. Please pray for my late grandpa and my family. Pray too for me, so that I will be able to come up with that money asap. I do not know where or whom to ask, but I believe that God will help me somehow if I ask. As I'm writing this, the song "Awesome God" by Hillsong is playing and I guess that is a sign, since I have my songs playing in shuffle mode. :):) I'm trying very much to be positive. I know the power of prayers, and I hope all of you will pray for me. I know there are a lot of good people here. Thanks so much for reading this, thanks in advance for your prayers and God bless you! :)

Be positive in your life. In this life it's always happen, the day that we hope that we in another situation, but it just happen. Be patience and positive. I'm myself have a tough life in these days. I have a mission to finish by the end of this week, a mom who is unwell in the village and a bad financial situation too. Wish the best for all of us. I always pray for the humanity, and for all of us...

I'm not a prayer, but I will be thinking positive thoughts for you and your family. I'm so sorry to hear of your grandfather's loss, and I'm sure having the added financial stress makes it even harder to bear. Have you tried contacting the loan company and asking them if you can make a smaller payment or change your payment schedule to fit with your job's earnings? I know that loan companies here will do that sometimes, if you ask. They'd much rather get some money than have to sell your account to collections. Good luck, congrats on the new job, and I hope things start looking up soon.

Hi fluffnflowers. Thank you for sending positive thoughts for me and my family. Even though you mentioned that you're not a prayer, your response is already a prayer for me. I just received the news about the loan yesterday and it's already the weekend, so I can only contact them on Monday. I hope I can find a way to negotiate with them or else I will have to find the money on my own. Thanks for your wishes! I really appreciate it. :)

You're now in my prayers..You know the saying "If God brought you to it, He will brig you through it" ..Its like my lifes motto.It really does hold its truth.I'm sorry to hear about your grandpa I know how hard that can hit you but stay strong and things will be better soon.As for your student loan you need to try to talk to someone in charge of that let them know your situation and let them know that you have full intentions of re-paying your loan but you need a little more than a two week period due to the circumstances that you and your family are going through.And put your faith in God, you know he takes care of his children and he is the king of all riches dont forget that :]

Hi BriNbai, thank you so much for your prayers. I always have faith in God, and I do believe that He will never leave me at times like this, when I need Him the most. About the student loan, I will figure out what to do. Let's just hope they would consider my situation and give me more time. I hope I can find a way to settle it as soon as possible. Thanks for your response, I really appreciate it. God bless you. :)

I am offering my sincere prayers to God so that you get out of the situation that you are presently in. I pray for the welfare of your family also, as also your career advancement. God definitely respond to prayers so don't worry. When He closes one door, He definitely opens another. Be confident and face the challenge and you will succeed! My blessings to you!
