“Keep your wants, your fears, your joys, your sorrows, your cares, and your fears before God. You cannot burden Him; you cannot weary Him. He who numbers the hairs of your head is not indifferent to the wants of His children. “The Lord is is very pitiful, and of tender mercy” James 5:11. His heart of love is touched by our sorrows and even the utterances of them. Take to Him everything that perplexes the mind. Nothing is too great for Him to bear for he holds up worlds, He rules over the affairs of the universe. Nothing that in any way concerns our peace is too small for him to notice. There is no chapter in our experience too dark for Him to read; there is no perplexity to difficult for Him to unraval. No calamity can befall the least of His children, no anxiety harrass the soul , no joy cheer, no sincere prayer escape the lips, of which our heavenly Father is unobservant, or in which He takes no immediate interest.. “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up thier wounds” Psalms 147:3 E.G.White; Steps to Christ page 100
Young man spiraling downwards
Please pray for JB. He is 17 years old. He made a failed suicide attempt about two months ago. No matter how much we pray for him he seems to be getting worse. He is just deteriorating mentally, physically and emotionally before our eyes. It seems like he wants to die. His family is exhausted and fed up. Please pray for his deliverance from the enemy. Please pray for his family and their salvation.
PRAY FOR MY BESTFRIEND
I ask that you guys pray for my best friend Tiffany Concepcion to accept Jesus Christ as her savior and allow him to enter her heart, mind, body, and soul. I ask that you guys pray for me and ask God to use me as his disciple and as her spiritual influence. She's always confused, depressed, and overwhelmed with life and and a life like that without Jesus Christ is not a life I want to see my best friend live. Thank you!
Hope out of Despair
I was granted the gift or the capacity to see my sinfulness and repent of my sins by the Holy Spirit softening my heart in light of seeing God's love for me and that allowing me to be willing to ask for forgiveness twelve years ago. After this, I sought to know God, but during this time I held unto a pet sin and went through a revolving door of sinning and repenting. Until, I no longer felt guilty for sin and touched by God's love for me. So it appeared that I had committed the unpardonable sin and I sought to know if I did and if could still connect with God. I did this through looking topics that we need to experience in the Christian faith like faith, repentance, conversion, and etc. to see if had truly experience these things to see whether this why I held unto my pet sin, to see how to overcome this pet sin, or if I indeed did commit the unpardonable sin. Also spent time in my bible, talk to other Chrstians, had Bible Studies with my local Adventist Church, and even went to places conducive for connecting with God like a Adventist health retreat and missionary school. To my dismay, I never seem to get assurance that haven't gone too far or that I was connecting with God. Now before you say, the very fact that you our seeking God would indicate that I am still willing to have relationship with Jesus. My motive for seeking him was and now, for self-interest or what will benefit me rather then turning from sin and loving God. Although, I know that is the reason we should seek a realtisohip with God and how we will truly benefit ourselves. So with that in mind, I thought if I haven't committed unpardonable sin and then can still be reached by God's grace, then though I have self-interested motive; I seek God to convert me and then I will have the right motive to seek God. Now keep in mind that I had a spirit of repentance and was moved by God's love to know him and be open to loving him 12 years ago as I said and so my motive now being self-seeking isn't okay. It would be if I hadn't had that experience of repentance and being touched by his love 12 years ago. So, this self-seeking motive could indicate that I committed unpardonable sin or my heart is permanently harden because I had a Holy Spirit wrought repentance and being touched by his love, but now it's gone so I am not sure if I can get it back with losing it and for eight years of seeking him and not getting connected with God. I've talk to lot of Christians and some pastor about this and It seems to end the same. I never assured I haven't gone too far because they'll encourage me to seek to form a realtisohip with God and that the fact that your seeking shows you haven't gone too far, but then I will step out in faith trusting he will lead me and it always end in him not answering my concerns(not about going too far, but concerns I have in my life) I have or it not seeming he is leading or working in my heart. Then I start to doubt and ask him for assurance that this is not happening because I have committed the unpardonable sin and I don't get a answer. This why I want to clear up that haven't gone too far and then I can have confidence that what ever may happen in forming a relationship with God that it's not from that. Or after talking to them, I think I want to believe what there saying is true, but I'll notice that my heart seems harden, desiring sin, and doesn't seem like I am willing to change. I'll pray about for assurance to know I can be willing to form a realtisohip with God and for help to not be discourage by this, but God does not answer and I just go back to being discouraged. Or I get anxious for the ball to get rolling to experience a relationship with God and get out of the current state of the condition of my life and experience living for him(no just the condition of worrying that I have gone too far, but concerns in my life that have troubled me and have set my life back). So I'll pray for God to comfort me in holding on or to encourage me to not fret and to know things will change or to give me peace about it taking time. I'm like this, all the while with the doubt of maybe I went too far on my mind because I'm thinking maybe the ball isn't rolling faster in experiencing a relationship with God and living in his way because I have gone too far and so when God doesn't answer my prayers to this, I fall back down into my state of despair. It's like why doesn't he comfort me or encourage me when know how distressed I've been knowing if gone to far and eradicate from my mind that I have gone too far? This only makes that I have gone too far. All of what I said is why calling his saints intercede on my behalf for him answer my on this issue. To let me know I am still receptive to being willing to form a relationship with him.
I know this is a lot, but I just want you all to understand fully what is going on,
