My husband recently changed jobs because he was in a terrible situation with the amount of stress he had in his job. Now that he has started the new job he realizes he made a big mistake and just left one bad situation to something far worse. He knows he was so desperate to get out he felt pressured to take this opportunity. He is very depressed and blames himself and is struggling with why God doesn’t give him peace and happiness with his job situation. This has become a heavy burden for me to hold up. Please pray that he will be blessed with a new job and it will be where God would have him to be.soundyaaPrayers: 3082Requests: 10

The evil one will use this situation to destroy (John 10:10) your husbands relationship with our Lord. He uses others to discourage and put pressure on your husband. Where it is possible and whilst your husband waits I pray he is able to ask can I see this situation differently, asking is there something God wants me to do in this situation before he provides something a way out? Jesus is the light of the world (Matthew 4:16) and satan does not want this light for anyone so he will attack those with a great relationship with God to bring them down. I pray your husband can think God can protect me here, understanding we have to make a choice to be close to God, think as it is written we need the armour of God Ephesians 6:10-18. For instance, it is written 16-17: take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
So to cope at this time is to get close to God in the word, worship and prayer, it is important to focus on a daily rhythm in this, that is how I survive what has become the most challenging time of my life. Do not look to far ahead to think what might be, rather focus on the day, pray into the day, the most important prayer for your husband is this:
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. (Psalm 91:4). Ask this from him, I do when I face others I know the evil uses to bring me down. It will mean means you are close to God you and can survive, but it is a choice. I pray your husbands eyes are opened to the spiritual war that is raging and this becomes his daily focus and request of God.
For you, it is important at this time to give all your worry and anxiety to God (1 Peter 5:7) because despite what you are living his peace is available to you which then guards your heart (Philippians 4:7). At this time you need to be close to God as David says under his wings because he is your strong hold for safety (Proverbs 18:10). Sister know you can survive because God is with you, but use any spare moment right now to seek him. I will be praying for you, keep going, God is a God of love and he will provide a path for your family.

Amen to the above! Claim and use those scriptures.
The lord led me to a job a year ago after he led me not to look for one-he told me he was going to open the door. So I didn’t look and behold a door was open and I started working for a dentist. I knew nothing about dentistry. I was kind of excited at first. I knew this was a temporary gig..but my light was quickly extinguished when I found out the man that I was working for was, well, insane. He was a sadist. I went home crying and pleading with God. I just didn’t understand. I had such a hard time being around this man alone. What was god doing? He was using me. I had to pray in the spirit and often. I had to rise above the atmosphere. I played worship music at work when I could. I tried to stay grateful and know that this was temporary. I used my time there to minister and share God’s love to the patients. I didn’t always have the best attitude. I don’t do very well when it comes to biting my tongue. But God knew that. But I never held back when it came to compromising my beliefs. I refused to do it. I was an advocate for the patients. They needed one. We are placed where God places us for a reason. He needs us to be a light in the darkness. The biggest mistake we make is complaining. I’m still working on this.
He did finally rescue me out of there but it was only after I stopped complaining and just did the very best that I could do given the circumstances.
Now I am working a summer job for a friend and I am loving every second of it. I am so grateful. I often think to myself that God KNOWS me so well and this is why I am here. He knows what I love. I’ll never know exactly why I needed to be at that dentist office, but I know that he had his reasons and it was all part of my story. And hey, it’s all going to come together. It was only for a year. Trust him! Let him guide your life. No decision we make is a mistake when he is in us.

wow !! Amen to the prayers and wisdom offered above!
My sister Lisa,
You know the enemy is a Liar! He does everything in his power to remove peace in our families. If he can’t attack you then he choose to attack your loved ones BUT we have a savior who is more powerful than our enemy.
I pray against that spirit of depression that has come upon your husband ! I ask the blood of Jesus to silence that depression . I pray that the peace of God will rest upon your dear husband. I pray that you will be the shoulder that he needs to lean on because I sense a very heavy burden upon his heart right now. Plead the blood of Jesus over your entire family daily. Pray over him daily before he leaves the house as he needs covering .
God bless you my sister and thank you for always being an encouragement to many on DAB. We love you!
Stay strong and know that we are praying for you.lisa.starling10Prayers: 1Requests: 0

You all are So right in everything you said –you could not have said it any better and you nailed it to on the head!! Jeff went to the Lord tonight and told me he was just going to Trust God and seek Him by getting back in the word and building a stronger prayer life. I already see your prayers are working. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I Know God will see us through this tough time and my husband will be better for it and stronger in his walk with the Lord. This is exactly what I needed to hear, embrace, take up the shield of faith and hold close to my heart for continued strength in the Lord, so my husband will not be attacked.
Thanks for your kind example. You know it always helps when others have walked through your pain! I’m going to share this with him tomorrow and I know it will encourage him along. He does struggle with patience but I know God has our back and will bring another opportunity and like you I feel the Lord saying He will bring it to us so I’m trying not to push too hard! Thanks for your prayers–much love back!
What an angel you are even finding me on the prayer wall. You are an amazing prayer warrior, and as before I thank you so much for your kind words and for praying for my husband. You know it’s kind of hard for me to ask with everybody else having such heavy burdens, I really struggle sharing my own burdens. I will do what you advised to pray covering over him before he leaves each day. I know that will help against the evil one. Thanks again, Love, God bless you, too! Prayers many blessings on you and your beautiful family.❤️❤️❤️soundyaaPrayers: 3082Requests: 10

Perfect Sister Lisa. I think Romans 12:2 is so important here and I pray as he gets close to God he sees his will clearly and that his plans are good Jeremiah 29:11.
This community and each individual is so important for what they each bring and my prayer is the God shows us all clearly who we are in him, showing us how important and valuable our prayer life is, the enemy wants us to think it is talking in open space to nothing, but on here we see that by God’s grace he uses as vessel of his word, will and authority.
May God bless you all, knowing This:
Lamentations 3: 22-23
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;[a]
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Dont let any thought or person or thing tell you other wise, his love is never ending, covering all our sin. All we need to do is choose Jesus. May your week ahead be blessed.
Praying for you all in Jesus name.

God bless you my dear sister Lisa!
It is well with your soul so no matter what you face know that God is in control. Below are 2 prayers that I listen to every morning and evening, They have blessed my life . May God level ALL the mountains ahead of your dear husband. Ask him to remember to pray for his boss so as to receive favor. Also everyday when he gets to his office let him pray over his office that NO evil will come near! Let him declare that his office is a NO -GO zone for the enemy! No evil will come near his office.
Your home too is a NO-GO zone for the enemy so declare this loud and clear. Take some olive oil, pray over it and anoint every entry in your house. Anoint your vehicles. All that belongs to you is covered in the blood of Jesus!
Let the peace of God start flowing and moving in and through you and as it does may it spread over the entire house and may your husband sense it.
Know that God values your prayers of encouragement so no matter the road you are facing now please don’t stop praying for others. Let the enemy NOT silence your precious voice. As we praise God , that becomes a sweet fragrance in his nostrils and all strongholds are pulled down.
So today I speak life over your husband! He will NOT fail at his job. He will be the head and NOT the tail! He will not be intimidated! Stress is NOT his portion! Jesus will help him with his work! Your husband will find favor even with his enemies because he has put his trust in Jesus! Tell him and remind him that he reports to the King of Kings ! so when he goes to work let him not fear but go in boldness knowing that God will equip him.
Below are the links for morning (before you leave the house) and evening prayer( before he goes to bed)
Love yo my sister 🙂

Praise God for He is at work!
Thank you in advance for what you have lined up for Lisa’s husband. I pray for divine favor upon him as he goes through the interview process. Let the employer find something they like about him and be so drawn to him to the point where they decide ” This is the guy we must hire”
I trust you Father because you have done that for me even when I wasn’t the most experienced candidate 🙂
Thank you for what you will do for this family.
In Jesus name I pray.
