Money woes top prayer lists
Many people are praying for relief from their money problems, according to a new poll conducted by Guideposts.com.
When asked “What are you praying for these days?” 32 percent of poll respondents answered “financial relief.”
That was the top response, outpacing the second highest response “United States and our leaders,” from 20 percent of respondents.
In addition, about 15 percent said they were praying for a “new job.”
The folks at Guideposts said the combination of the two responses “new job” and “financial relief” represented nearly 50 percent of all respondents’ prayers.
“The level of concern that people have for their finances, jobs, retirement accounts and relief from money problems is starkly evident by how prominent it is in their prayers,” Anne Simpkinson, Guideposts’ online managing editor, said in a news release.
The survey was conducted between Oct. 13 and 19 among 2,522 online respondents.
Simpkinson said Guideposts has a library of inspirational content and experts who are providing faith messages and helpful suggestions to aid people in these tough times.
In fact the site just launched a new six-part series “How to Handle Tough Times” that can be accessed at www.guideposts.com/toughtimes.
Many may remember that Guideposts was founded in 1945 by Norman Vincent Peale, author of the book “The Power of Positive Thinking.”
