Oh Mr. Lay, I am woefully sorry. I know you will be talking to the employees soon and I will be praying for you.
I was just praying and asking God what I could say to you. I don't want to be presumptuous. This is the verse that came to mind. Psalm 34:19 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all."
You may not feel righteous right now but you are. When you gave Jesus your life, you became righteous. So you will be delivered-it may not look like it now but this is not the end of the story. He has a plan. I know that you can't see HOW this could work together for good for you but it will. Great is His faithfulness! All afflictions-it says. ALL!

I really appreciate your e-mail. I have relied heavily on my faith, The
Bible and prayer to get through the last few weeks. Without God's help,
would have surely crumbled. May He continue to bless you.

Mr. Lay,
I am a former employee of Enron and have been through many trials in
past few years. God has been faithful and seen me through them all.
sir, I can tell you that I can count it all joy. I just want to
encourage you. These look like very dark times right now. Call upon
name of the Lord. Throw yourself on the mercy and grace of the Lord
remember all that he has done. He is a BIG, GOOD God that LOVES you!
arm hasn't been shortened that He cannot help you.
You will be glad to know that the true testimony of you as a man is
of a
good report. You will glorify God in this. I am listening to a song
right this minute that I so wish you could hear. It would bring you
comfort. It is based on the verse that talks about "all of my help
cometh from the Lord". How true that is for you.
Lord Jesus, you are a good God that sees all things. Mr. Lay is a
of God. That means he is your child. You tell us that you are an
present help in time of trouble. These troubles are over his head
under your feet. Lord Jesus, show yourself strong on his behalf.
Glorify yourself and Mr. Lay will give you the glory. He knows,
Help him in this time when the waters are flowing over his head.
him from where you are. We are all but dust. Who are we that you
mindful of us but you tell us in your Word that You have good
and plans for us and they are for good and NOT EVIL that we may
an expected end. (Jer 29:11-For I know the thoughts that I think
toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to
give you an expected end.) Who can stand except you give us grace?
Lord, you are so good. Remind Mr. Lay of who you really are. In the
mighty name of Jesus!
Mr. Lay, get some scripture to hang onto-write it down on a card and
carry it with you. When things come against you (the enemy), you will
need to remember who you are in Jesus! The greatest battle on earth
fought with the Word of God (Satan against Jesus in the wilderness)!
Isaiah 54:17-No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
Oh Mr. Lay, one more thing. I am telling you that I haven't a clue as
what has or has not been done. I just want to show you something from
the Word of God how God is. If you will read Isaiah's calling in
6 and read Moses' calling in Exodus 3, you will see that God DOES NOT
mention their sin to them. Isaiah was just overcome with the glory of
God and confessed all by himself and Moses (remember he had killed an
Egyptian) was just trying to convince God that He had to be wrong.
ONLY reason I mention it is because sometimes we delay in going to
because we think we have done something wrong. God tells us that He
hasn't dealt with us according to our sins. KNOW that NO MATTER WHAT,
Jesus is ready to fight on your behalf! It is ALWAYS about God's
and not our strength.
When I started this email, you were just a stranger. You are now my
beloved brother in Christ. Isn't it amazing how God works. He has
my heart to yours. I will be on my knees for you. Phillipians tells
to pray for E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! What does everything mean?
God's gonna do some amazing stuff so get ready!!!! His ways aren't
ways and remember too-He is able to do EXCEEDINGLY ABOVE what we can
or think!
