I am a 44 year old woman with many health problems who is trying to get on permanent disability. In the meantime, I am not able to pay my rent on the pittance given to me by unemployment ( was laid off end of April). I have few friends who are in the same boat as I am; my family is poor and I spoke to my church but they send all of their tithes to our sister parish in Watts. All they can help me is with food bank directions.
I have set up a YouCaring website and I am desperate for help. Only a few hundred per month until I get on disability would tide me over. Please could you consider posting my prayer request on your blog and asking anyone in the Los Angeles area (I am in Carson) to ask if they have any office jobs (like a clerk up to an office manager? I am hoping to get help from my brothers and sisters in the faith.
Please, please help me. Here is my youcaring weblink:
My doctors want me to go on permanent disability, but this is a months-long process and I need to supplement my funds for the next few months (end of the year) until that comes through. I figured out a few hundred would make it breathable, but ANY PENNY would be a huge improvement over where I am now.
SO, I am asking for prayers for my health to improve (acute and chronic), for prayers for my finances, for prayers for a part-time job until disability comes through, and for my heart to be lighter, it has been very heavy these last months.
I would appreciate also any part-time office jobs (I can’t be on my feet for long periods of time, but I have a lot of office experience) in the Los Angeles area, should anyone of your readers know anyone in my area. I am bare-bones my expenses (rent, car insurance, phone, and that’s IT), but I need more to pay even those.
I just need any help to get me by until my disability comes through. Thanks friends!
Your sister in Christ
Father, hear our prayer that our sister can meet her financial needs and find work through your Son Jesus Christ. Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray for her!
If some of youse guys could step up and help, your reward will be great on That Day.
