Happy Labor Day!

If you're like me, Labor Day seems like a good reason to take the day off and do something fun as a family. But the holiday was started as a day to celebrate laborers of all trades.

With a national unemployment rate of 9.6, it's likely most who read this posts is either unemployed or knows someone who is.

While there's no dissolving tablet to fix the problem, there is something we can all do. Today, in celebration of the holiday, feel free to post the name of that someone (or someones) in your life. We can pray together that God will provide the right job soon.

I'll start. Please pray for Derek Knox to find a job soon.

My hubby lost his job after 11 years in January 2009 due to economic downsizing. Thankfully God had a new plan in mind for him--returning to school. He became a full-time non-traditional student and will graduate in two months with top honors. He's been carrying a 4.0 GPA. I'm so proud of his dedication and willingness to try something new.

He learned of a local company that will be hiring at all levels within the next month or so. This company is specifically looking for unemployed vets--two things my hubby possesses. Please pray for God's leading in opening doors for Hubby since he graduates soon and will lose his unemployment benefits after graduation.

Thank you for a lovely twist about a day that many remember as the last day of summer.

We are in the process of moving back to the US from Turkey. Both my husband and I need jobs.

Praying for your husband Lisa! I find it so inspiring to hear of the unemployed who use their unfortunate situation to make a life change or pursue a passion they'd never had time for.

Pam, prayers going up for you and your hubby as you return to the US!

My husband is a 3/4-time student (will graduate in either Dec. 2011 or May 2012...hasn't decided yet). He is our sole means of support because I cannot work, but he only has a part-time job. Right now, though money is VERY tight, it works out because of school. But he needs to find a job in the next year that is full-time and fits with his training. Around here, even people with B.S. and M.S. degrees can't find work, even at McDonald's! So there isn't much hope in hubby's mind. Please pray for him.

Praying for you and your hubby, Ruthie! There's always hope when we lift our requests heavenward!

I'm praying for the Reed family. The husband is an HR guy who has been out of work for about 15 mos. They go to our church in NE Ohio where unemployment is so high. I'm believing God that He holds all of these families in His hands.

Praying for the Reed family, Julie.
