ex smoker needs help

Hi Folks,
I need help, prayer, for a long time I smoked cigarettes, I am now in my second year without smoking but they have done my body some damage. My heart has been effected and my blood flow doesn't seem to be very good either. I have repented of smoking now.
There quite a few unfulfilled prophetic words from the Lord over my life. It would be sad if the devil was allowed to glory in my untimely end.
One of the Lord's silly sheep,
Tonyb

Be faithful brother.

1 John 4:4
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.


In my prayers

Hi Tonyb,

I was a smoker when I accepted the Lord and He removed it from me completely, - after two weeks was the first time I realized, when someone else pointed it out, that I hadn't had a cigarette! That was over 10 years ago.

I share this to encourage you to pray for the obsession to be lifted - He can and will. Also, this is not the way He always chooses to work and I have had friends who have struggled, but have been faithful. One in particular, we ate Blow Pops and Tootsie Roll Pops together when he was going through rough spots. It sounds silly but it helped him a great deal and cheered him up too, because its fun.

May God bless you and deliver you!
:)

Thanks for praying for me fellowservant. I've never really been overweight, I think if I am it will only be by about 4 or 5 lbs. I think what we are looking at here is a touch of angina. I don't get severe chest pains but if work moderately
hard it feels as if a big hand encloses it's self around my heart and squeezes it.

I have had a revelation of divine healing but I've lost ground there a bit and I finding difficult to make a firm stand.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi brother greater is he that is in you than he that in the world. The Devil will not touch you until your Father allows him; death will not touch you until your Father requires of your soul. Be strong in Jesus!

Hi Tonyb. Well done for quitting. :star: That is awesome. God delivered me from smoking and other self destructive habits, but yes sometimes we still have to deal with the aftermath of those things. The pains you are getting is just probably your body getting rid of all those years of toxins.

Your lungs are probably saying thanks Tony exactly what I needed

Believe that Jesus is healing your body. Sometimes we don't get instantaneous healings. sometimes it is a gradual process. Either way they are both divine and miraculous!!

Lord bless Tonyb may his breathing becomes easier and easier each day that every clear breath of fresh air he take flows through his body , Lord you can see inside Tonyb's lungs, I ask you to touch those areas that need your touch ,shine your light there. Heal all the little hairs, all the cells , the membranes. Only you Lord can do this. I ask you in your Holy name. Thank you Jesus. :love:


Your friend in Christ:love:

Amen: i agree with calluna... we have to believe that after we pray, God will, or is, answering that prayer.

Jam 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
Jam 1:7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
Jam 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.


I have you on my prayer list, will be praying for you.

God bless

AMEN and AMEN, Heather! Yes, Lord! I agree with Heather's prayer Lord and thank you for Tony's deliverance from smoking and the healing you are doing in his body! PRAISE YOU LORD! In Jesus' name...AMEN!

Hey, Tonyb and everyone else, I would like to ask you guys to pray for my husband who has yet to believe/claim the victory God has given him over his smoking! He hasn't relinquished his smoking completely to the Lord yet and continues to struggle in the flesh over it. I know he has to believe that the Lord can deliver him from this. Thanks!

Lord hear Kindsfater prayer for her husband. Jesus we come to you asking to release this man from this bondage, Lord break his desire for a cigarette, that when he reaches out for a cigarette stop his hand from picking one up. Lord make the smell of smoke become so nauseating to this man that he will never pick one up again. Jesus show this man how free he can be from this habit, that he can use his hands to do wonderful creative things . Jesus open the eyes of Kindsfater's husband so he sees the destruction that cigarette's chemicals do to his body. Lord let him see that his body is a temple a beautiful gift from you . Help him see that with a healthy body he will able to serve you more freely and be there for his family . Lord cast out the spirit of nicotine addiction once and for all from this man. We ask you in Jesus's name. Amen!

Thanks folks for all your prayers and support. As for wanting to smoke a cigarette I think I would sooner put a gun to my head and squeeze the trigger. I now hate cigarettes with a passion, but not the people who smoke them.

There were several things that really helped me stop smoking, one was the realization that the enemy Satan is the one behind the tobacco industry. Two was the cost, about $9.00 for a pack of 20 cigarettes in the UK now, due to all the government tax on them. So it's now an expensive way to slowly kill yourself. Three I've also known of Christians who have died of cigarette related illnesses. Armed with the above information it was easer to stop smoking. Finally I would say it helps a great deal to visualize Satan as the supplier of the cigarettes. And keep it to the forefront of your mind, that he hates you with a deep passion and wants to kill you and make you pay for it out of your hard earned wages.

See John 10:10.

Tony.
