BUILDING 429-GLORY DEFINED
I wish money could solve issues like this but in times like these I thank God we are not alone. I pray for your wife to find healing in trusting God fully with this depression she is battling. I pray God open a door of light an joy upon her life and the lives of those around her. May this depression, feelings of sorrow and defeat leave her life in the name of Jesus and I pray your home is covered by the blood of Christ who is the healer of all things and the maker of all things new. Nothing in this world lasts forever and I pray that the season of this time is coming to an end and that God will bring about new things in your lives. Amen
First, I want to tell you that that "something" is, in fact, the devil attempting to separate you from God. Don't believe a single word because they're ALL LIES...
"Control yourselves and be careful! The devil, your enemy, goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to eat. Refuse to give in to him, by standing strong in your faith. You know that your Christian family all over the world is having the same kinds of suffering. And after you suffer for a short time, God, who gives all grace, will make everything right. He will make you strong and support you and keep you from falling. He called you to share in his glory in Christ, a glory that will continue forever." 1 Peter 5:8 - 10
You said yourself that you want a relationship with God! You are requesting prayer which demonstrates that you DO still have faith in God! Like I said: the devil is trying to separate you from God... which is IMPOSSIBLE:
"Yes, I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor ruling spirits, nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us, nothing below us, nor anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38 - 39
This is what I want you to do: go to a quiet place with your Bible and read, read, read. Ask God what He wants you to read and He will direct you. He loves you and knows what you're going through and how to get you through it.. "The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it." 1 Corinthians 10:13
"Even the very hairs on your head are numbered by God." Matthew 10:30
So remember... God is in control. He knows you and He loves you!
Cry out to God and He will be there! "God is near to you whenever you call on Him." Deuteronomy 4:7
Keep praying... and when the devil starts to taunt you, rebuke him in the name of Jesus and he WILL leave. Simply say or think, "STOP! Go away from me, satan! The LORD JESUS rebuke you!" Again, cry out to God and He will be there! God knows what we can and cannot handle, so He knows you can handle this- but ONLY with HIS HELP, so even when you don't feel like praying or reading God's Word, DO IT ANYWAY. Believe me, when you don't feel like praying or reading the Bible, that's when you need to do it the most!
When you feel hopeless and scared, remember: "I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and discipline." - 2 Timothy 1:7
"He will strengthen me with His Word." Psalm 119:28
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6
Those are just a few verses from the Bible, which is the absolute truth.. so keep reading! Jesus himself had to deal with the devil's temptations during His time in the wilderness (read Matthew 4:1 - 11) and look what He did: every time the devil tempted him and attempted to twist the truth, Jesus responded with a Bible verse! Do the same! READ THE BIBLE. I cannot stress that enough... and when the devil taunts you, the Holy Spirit will help you remember Bible verses so you can fight back the same way Jesus did... and look what happened:
"So the devil left Jesus, and angels came and took care of him." Matthew 4:11
Don't lose faith, Christopher! GOD IS WITH YOU!!
"Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6
I will keep you in my prayers, Christopher. Don't lose faith, and don't be afraid. Trust in God and keep your focus on Him... he won't let you go. =]

Please keep our matrimony in your prayers to restore and bring love to our family .
Micah, I've been there too, but "when your father and mother forsake you, the Lord will take you up." He is always faithful! Get alone, give Him all your problems and He will provide.
I hope that you tell Sue all these beautiful thoughts and prayers for her. Just speak from your heart and she will hear and feel your love and caring.
Sue and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
I was seriously ill in my 30s and continue to deal with a life-threatening illness when I get serious attacks. What saved me was being open to and researching natural or new ideas/methods.
It's all in God's hands . . . if you are not sure if your friend believes in Christ and has accepted Him as her Savior, is it something you can ask her and share how it gives you strength and hope?
I will pray for you, as well. Maybe God is working through your caring to help your friend and her family.
Micah, We will be praying for you. Hang in there -- sometimes life doesn't seem fair and those we love may hurt us, but much better things will come. Keep your faith and know that Christ is with you -- keep searching and something really good will come your way. There are jobs and job fairs coming up . . . prepare your best and have confidence in your skills and positive qualities that will make you a great employee. Don't give up!I hope that you will find something that really makes you happy, but if you get the opportunity to work, be grateful for it and and get good references for the future.
THANK YOU for caring enough to share this story. We all need to be aware of what is going on in the world - to pray and to be a voice of concern and hope during trying times. As we see many lines crossed in our society today, we together can work to hopefully rebuild important boundaries for our society's survival and to encourage higher standards to live by instead of the "anything goes" attitude that causes so much hurt.
Do you have anything for divorced couples who want to remarry?
I pray GOD releases somethign GREAT AND BIG in your life. Ive learned when we pray to GOD that he blesses just enough he wants us to pray for BIG FAVOR. So I pray "GOD please give the person on the other end of this prayer request a HUGE BLESSING like they've never seen before". Help them receive a job where she can do your work. Help her family understand that getting a job right now is difficult but it will come her way." AMEN! I declare GOD has great things in store for you. Embrace the challenges and become a testimony when he pushes you throw this storm. RCR
I pray your daughter is healed right now!I know it may take awhile for God to do his work as it took awhile for me to over come my addiction with drugs but with faith everything is possible. Continue to pray for her and over her. I will pray she gets tired of those drugs and that one day soon, she will be sick of them and walk away and enter a place of rehab. stay strong and I will pray daily for you and her.
This is amazing... thanks for sharing this information.
The Lord will lift you up and give all the Strength your family needs to cope with this situation. Remember By our saviors stripes he will heal us and make us whole... Amen
God Bless you and your Family in Jesus's name....
I pray that Amanda goes back to her husband and family.
I believe he has begun to ease the pain and show me his direction.
After releasing your anger towards the Lord, has his Spirit guided you, and has your financial disaster been corrected?

Could you send me an email giving me your permission.
The best thing you can do for him is keep encouraging him and loving him no matter what. I personally struggle with this as well. I brought it over into my marriage from my teenage life. Its something that just doesn't go away. The images and thoughts will always be there. But the power of JESUS can take them away and transform us into a better person. This struggle is an extremely hard struggle for both of you. But your love for him, because of Jesus Christ will help him overcome.
My wife sometimes has lack of trust in me. Yet she also aches because she sees how much it hurts me. He may not say it, but this addiction hurts him so much. It does me, every time I fail its like someone has ripped my heart out. I feel worthless. Just make sure he knows you love him and Jesus loves him.
God will help him over come. I pray that God will work in your marriage and rebuild your trust. GOD IS GOOD!!!
I often pray about this, and wish I had made better decisions several years ago. There are a lot of people I could be helping if I had been a better steward.
Also, since the affairs, God has blessed them in their 25 year anniversary this year. It is a tremendous mile-stone for them and frankly, the one to thank is the Lord. He made that possible for them, and their marriage has never been better.
My parents have been through a similar situation. My father has had two different affairs against my mother...both times, she found it within herself to forgive him. It's true repentance and a want to change that will restore the marriage.
There are four of us kids in the family: 24, 22, 21, and I am 19. It is a family effort, not just a father and mother. Once our family came together and we were able to forgive our father together, God has done wonders in our family. Don't be afraid to let your children in on this (if you do have children) because the support of your children will help you tremendously also.
I will pray for you daily- because I know and am a firm believer in the fact that God can make it work through anything. Absolutely anything.
I am 19 years old, and I myself have chosen a lifestyle that is not what the Lord has intended for me. I'm not gay, but I have chosen to move in with my boyfriend of 4 years before marriage.
Every single day, I receive an email or encouraging text message from my mother about a scripture or thought that God has put on her heart that particular day. It is helping me very much figure out what it is I want to do at this point of my life. Knowing that my parents haven't abandoned me even though they don't agree with my choices either...has made me feel like there is hope. Do not ever give up on her, because if she has the spirit of the Lord in her like I know I have it in me...deep down...I know he will help me and also your daughter, come to know the right thing to do. It is likely that she feels like there is no way out because choosing a "lifestyle" feels like something that you can't go back on. It feels like a commitment that you've made to yourself, that frankly...you don't want to give up. But deep down there is a yearning.
Pray for her daily. Let her know how much you love her and what you are praying for. I'm coming to realizations, and I know she will too. One day it is going to click, and it's because you never gave up and never stopped loving and praying for her.
I haven't prayed in a very long time... It makes me feel like a hypocrite. But I will pray for this for you. I know how you must feel, because I know how my own mother feels. I hope that I will be able to feel the presence of the Lord in my life and let it come through, and the same for your daughter.
hello the lord says he enjoys a greatful giver! dont worrie god will not love you any less for not tithing or having to tith less. i am praying for you! if you can do 10% do it. but in the bible it was better for the lady who gave a penny bc it was all she had and she gave joyfully, then the men who gave thousands. if u give to the radio station it will help many of people and maybe god wants you too give both to ur church and to the radio. ask god and he will answer. dont let satan come in and make u confused or guilty. you can do this! Jesus loves you and has a great purpose for you now and forever!
If the lord wants you to go to Los Angeles then that is what you should do. The opportunities to support your family are just not as it used to be and maybe God wants you to be in LA. God Bless you and good luck
I am sincerely praying for peace for you. Your elders are in a much better and happier place.
Ten days before Christmas my younger sister passed away, she literally just dropped dead on the kitchen floor with no warning. Today a family friend that has been a member of the family since I was 4 passed away. Its sad for those of us left behind but remember you will see them again some day.
