MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON DECEMBER 8th, 2017
DO NOT MISTAKE A COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING HEART FOR JESUS FOR A WARRIOR AND ADVOCATE SUCH AS MYSELF WHO WILL STAND UP AGAINST FINANCIAL, INSTITUTIONAL AND SOCIAL INJUSTICES AGAINST WOMEN SUCH AS MYSELF AND OTHER WOMEN WHO FACE FINANCIAL ABUSE

MY PRAYER TO LORD JESUS, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ON DECEMBER 10th, 2017

DO NOT BE AFRAID, DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD (JESUS) IS WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO -- INSTEAD, ALWAYS BE COURAGEOUS AND STRONG AND ALWAYS STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN -- STAND UP FOR THE COMPASSION, LOVE AND AMAZING GRACE OF LORD JESUS AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER, WHO WILL ALWAYS STAND WITH YOU IN ALL THAT YOU DO.

DEAR LORD JESUS, GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT,

I PRAY, AGAIN, THIS EVENING FOR THE RESTORATION OF MY HEALTH AND MY TRUE FAMILY -- FOR THE LOVING AND UNBREAKABLE BOND BETWEEN ME AND MY MOM. I ALSO PRAY FOR THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES FOR A CAR AND FOR MOVING SOON BECAUSE I AM REALLY, REALLY TIRED OF BEING STRANDED IN THE SUBURBS OF WDM. I PRAY THAT YOU, LORD JESUS, OPEN THE EYES OF MY MOM'S, MY BROTHER'S AND MY FRIENDS' HEARTS TO THESE PRESSING NEEDS OF MINE AND MAKE THEM CONSIDER WHAT IT WOULD FEEL LIKE WERE THEY TO BE IN MY SITUATION. LORD JESUS, YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE ALWAYS STOOD UP STRONGLY FOR MY FAMILY AND MOST ESPECIALLY MY MOM, AND THAT I NEED MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO STAND UP STRONGLY FOR ME RIGHT NOW. WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING IS JUST NOT RIGHT AT ALL, AND I KNOW THAT YOU LORD JESUS ARE ALL ABOUT RIGHTEOUSNESS AND MAKING THINGS RIGHT AND I NEED FOR YOU, LORD JESUS, TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT IN MY LIFE AGAIN AND RESTORE ALL THAT HAS BEEN WRONGLY TAKEN FROM ME -- I KNOW THAT YOU LORD JESUS WILL HOLD EACH AND EVERY PERSON AND CHURCH WHO HAS HURT ME ACCOUNTABLE AND THAT YOU ARE THE SILENT LISTENER TO EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN SAID TO ME. YOU KNOIW LORD JESUS THAT THERE HAS BEEN A GREAT DEAL OF SEXISM AND GENDER DISCRIMINATION DIRECTED AT ME, ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS TRYING TO COMPLETE MY DISSERTATION AT ALBANY, AND I PRAY, IN JESUS' HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS NAME, THAT I RECEIVE PROPER CREDIT IN THE FORM OF A DOCTORAL DEGREE FOR ALL OF THE MANY, MANY WRITINGS THAT I DID FOR THAT DISSERTATION. YOU KNOW, LORD JESUS, THAT I HAVE STRONGLY RAISED THESE ISSUES WITH THE ADMINISTRATION AT SUNY ALBANY IN THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS AND I PRAY THAT THEY TAKE ACTION SOON ON WHAT OCCURRED WITH THAT DISSERTATION AND MY COMMITTEE AND THE GRADUATE DIRECTOR. I AM REALLY, REALLY TIRED OF SUFFERING FROM A SITUATION THAT WAS NOT CAUSED BY ME AT ALL. I SHOULD NOT BE IN THE SITUATION THAT I AM IN RIGHT NOW -- I SHOULD BE TEACHING COMPOSITION STUDIES, CULTURAL STUDIES AND POETICS FOR LIVABLE SALARY. YOU KNOW, VERY WELL, LORD JESUS ALL OF THE SACRIFICES THAT I HAVE MADE IN HELPING AND ADVOCATING FOR MY MOM AND MY FAMILY WITH THE ELDER ABUSE THAT MY GRANDMA SO SADLY AND WRONGLY EXPERIENCED AND THE DEFRAUDING OF MY GRANDAD'S TRUST AND FINANCIAL LEGACY BY A BANK AND THE DEFRAUDING OF MY MOM'S RETIREMENT MONEY. THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT ME AND MY MOM SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAD TO GO THROUGH AND SHOULD NEVER HAD TO HAVE EXPERIENCED, AND I PRAY, IN JESUS' HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS NAME, THAT YOU, LORD JESUS AND GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER, MAKE EVERYTHING RIGHT FINANCIALLY FOR MY MOM AND HER WELL-DESERVED RETIREMENT THAT SHE HAS NOT RECEIVED YET. I ALSO PRAY THAT YOU MAKE EVERYTHING FINANCIALLY RIGHT IN MY LIFE BECAUSE I HAVE WORKED VERY HARD THROUGHOUT MY LIFE YET EARNED VERY LITTLE BECAUSE OF UNJUST COMPENSATION SYSTEM IN ACADEMIA AND UNIVERSITIES, WHICH I HAVE ALSO WRITTEN AGAINST ON MY SITE www.compositionstudies.com. I REFUSE TO REMAIN SILENT ON THESE ISSUES ANY LONGER, AND I WANT MY HARD-EARNED DEGREE SO I CAN CONTINUE TEACHING, A MAJOR PASSION THAT YOU GAVE TO ME, LORD JESUS, AND THAT I AM VERY GIFTED AT DOING. IN SUM, I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE INJUSTICES AND SEXISM IN MY AND MY MOM'S SITUATIONS. WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS GROSSLY UNFAIR TO BOTH ME AND MY MOM. IN JESUS' HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, GLORIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL NAME. LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE K. OLSON

Diane...I just came here for the first time, wanting to say thank you for your encouraging, loving note to me through 107.1. My local fav music station :) Thank you for leaving me your name so I could find you! I read this prayer and prayed it with you as I reread your note to me as well. We do seem to have some similar struggles. I thank God that you took the time to write me. I saved your note for future reference! I have never heard of THIS place to write. I do have a blog I write through wordpress.com. I do the free thing there. You can find my blog at heavenboundheartblog.wordpress.com. One day I would like to upgrade, but that will wait for sometime in the future. I try to write once a month there, but have not always been able to, I used to write on Shoutlife.com which no longer exists. I found that through my favorite musical Christian brother...Michael W Smith yrs ago. I was sad when the site ceased. I can share and you can share more about our writing,etc later on as time and life permits. But for now, I just wanted to find you, say hello and thank you!

Thank you, Michelle, for your kind comments. I have been using Typepad as my blogging platform since 2004 (wow, thirteen years now) and get a very good deal (14.95 per month for as many blogs as I want and need to have, and I do have many blogs hosted with them). I believe it is 4.95 per month for three blogs on Typepad. But writemystoryonyourheart.com is one of my more personal blogs. I also have www.faithhopeloves.com which is my online prayer journal since 2014, which I have grown in my faith and the power of my prayers since then. I have been a on a walk of faith with Lord Jesus and God Our Almighty Heavenly Father for the past five years, if not longer, and They have taught me a lot about Their love and compassion and amazing grace and forgiveness for all people. I feel that They have been directing me to be a minister, which is what my writing is about most of the time lately, and I am looking for the right Lutheran ministerial program (probably in Minnesota) to go to that matches my faith and understanding of Lord Jesus. I was a PhD Candidate in writing, teaching and criticism at SUNY Albany in New York up until 2006 and lots of really unfair things happened with my dissertation committee and the graduate director, and that is what my most recent prayer on December 10th is about because I really need the degree in hand to get a good-paying composition teaching job. Like you, I am unemployed right now, and have applied for so many jobs yet am still waiting for something to come through, so I totally sympathize with your situation and will continue to pray for your situation. Please stay in touch. Your friend, Diane K. Olson
