    Sonia, 12/2/2016
  7. Please pray for people who are dealing with depression and other mental illness. They are real and they can make life very hard. People judge you so easily.

    I have dealt with depression half my life and feel that I have lost a lot of life due to it. I have missed so much and been left out of so many things that make life enjoyable and that build future. It has also made me very vulnerable, anxious and scared. I have very little social contacts and my finances and employability are in dire state. These are hard things to tackle on their own, and when you are sick bad things easily add up. When you have very limited support, little resources, ways to cope or financial, emotional & psychological reserves, it all feeds the hopelessness and weariness one already feels. It is truly vicious.You feel so weak and like a failure.You sometimes feel that you are punished or that God has simply forgotten you.

    I have dreams of being able to have a meaningful career where I can use my skills and talents and be useful and of help to others. I have dreams being able to travel the world: see new people and places and have new experiences. I have dreams that I have good trusted friends. And most of all I dream of finding loved one to build a future together and to have a family.

    These dreams, needs and desires seem so far away from the situation I am currently in, impossible even. Please if you can, pray that I will have happiness here in this world that I too am worthy of life's blessings and God hears my prayers. I pray God to guide me into a different path, one where I will not feel so lost and lonely. I need his help urgently. Thank you!

  14. Bother/sister,
    I am helpless with the happenings in my life
    I don't know the way to attain godliness and I don't have the strength to accept all my sins to the almighty
    In the name of Jesus who we believe to b our saviour I admit that I have made unforgivable mistakes in this life
    I cheated on my parents, one girl and her feelings knowingly
    I am totally depressed with the way my life went
    My parents who gave me everything they can are now suffering a lot in their life
    I couldn't help them with my studies
    Due to the stupidity that is there in me I forget the reason of my being
    I never felt for my parents when they are giving me everything I need
    Now when they are unable to give me I came to realise the pain they went through.
    Still I am helpless because my studies won't help me in solving their problems
    I lost my memory in remembering the things I study
    I played with feelings of a girl
    I feel bad about this life
    Myself being a Hindu I can't accept the fact that chirst sacrificed his life for people
    But I must say that everything will b me healed in the name of Jesus if u believe in
    Through this message I want to confess my mistakes to that lord and ask for his mercy
    Please let my parents be relieved from the pain they are going through
    Please let the girl be happy in the rest of her life and I am ready to accept any punishment for my sins
    In the name of Jesus let this world be saved from taughts of lust and greed
    Please offer prayers on my behalf
    Let the love of Jesus spread across the globe

    I wish to convey my warm wishes of this Christmas to every individual
    Thank you.

  15. Hi my prayer warrior and Faith filled believing friends ...
    Mom's been in a battle this past week with a roller coaster of events ( valleys and deep valleys ) .... She had been rushed to the hospital last Sat.for a strangulated hernia ....and they had stopped blood thinners Monday because of some internal bleeding after surgery The bleeding later stopped .... They took her out of intensive care Tues . ...But they hadn't put her back on blood thinners yet , well she suffered a stroke tonight around supper time . I spoke to her on the phone around 4:30 and when they went in sometime after that to give her supper , she wasn't moving . We are not sure of the extent of it . They think it was on the left side ( which controls the right ) .... She is left handed . When I arrived and joined my two Aunts , her right foot and arm , and leg were cold not moving . But right side moving better .... After when it was one of my Aunts left with me , I had remembered how Jesus had once healed me ...and I began laying hands on Mom and praying scripture over here ...and praising Jesus . Then within minutes her right foot got warmer and warmer and stayed that way and she moved it a little and her arm got warmer .... I was able to share with the Dr. And the nurse on duty as well about prayer ....My Mom is a woman of faith , I do believe that she heard me praying scripture over her ... To God be the Glory . Please pray in faith with me , I love my mother so much !!
    Thanks ,

I have a low matrix score so it's been really hard for me to find a good high school to go to and the deadline for applications is 12/9/16 and my mom won't do ANYTHING about it. I keep begging her to help me get in to my top choice! If I don't apply or get into any schools than I'm going to have to go to a school where there is gangs, 90% of kids vape drugs there, bullying, and the school looses a lot of kids to suicide. I really don't want to go there but TIME is running out and the only person that can help me now is my lord and savior, Jesus's Christ. Please Im begging you to help me!
