Prayer Request Outside of Writing.

Recommended Posts

      I'm requesting prayers for problems apart from my writing.  The local office of the People's United Bank where I have my account has been shut down, and it's ATM machine removed.  It was a small office, located inside the Stop & Shop supermarket, which is about a 15 minute walk from my home.  I'd get all my cash from the ATM, and was also able to check my account balance whenever I wanted.  Now I won't be able to do that.

     There is another ATM in a Rite Aide Pharmacy, in the same shopping center, where I have been able to get cash, and check my balance; but that's all I'm able to do there.  I can't conduct any other baking business.

     I've been trying to transfer my account to on-line, but that's giving me a lot of problems.  It's hard to understand the instructions, and when I do, I can't log on to my account.  They've asked for the last four numbers of my social security account.  That's what I've given, but they aren't accepted.

    I have to be careful about this.  I don't want my account frozen.

    I'm now asking for everyone's prayers, and advice from anyone who understands these things.  In Jesus Name.  Amen.

I'm so sorry, William. You might want to look for a phone number and try calling them. I found this:


The bank has shut its doors and has not been taken over by another bank or regulatory agency. Who can I contact?


Questions about closed banks and asset sales should be directed to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) website or by calling (888) 206-4662.


Hope that helps. Praying!

   Thank you everyone for your prayers.   

    I can't imagine a supermarket without an ATM machine.  I'm sure it won't be long before a new one is installed.  I've asked about it.  None of the employees have been told anything.

    As for myself, I expect to be getting along well enough.  As I said, I can still get cash and check my balance with the ATM in the nearby Rite Aide Pharmacy.  I can also get cash at the supermarket's check out counters.  The Stop & Shop also has its own customer service desk, where I purchase money orders for only $1 a piece, instead of $5 that they'd charge at the bank.

   The only problem I'd have is when I receive checks, I'd have trouble cashing them.  

    I again thank all of you for your prayers.  I now ask you to pray for me to be patient.

    In Jesus Name.  Amen.
