Needing prayer and guidance

Discussion in 'Prayer Request' started by Mconard, Sep 6, 2016.

  1. I have previously posted but today I need prayer and guidance. Satan is the master of confusion and He is doing a job. I'm constantly praying about finances, job and marriage. Right now it seems like every but of it is going and I'm lost and soooo confused. I don't have any friends to talk to so christian friends are also null on that. I just don't know what to do. I'm sinking and I can't help but feel like I'm going to drown soon. I'm a christian with a baby christian husband but he isn't helping either. I feel like I'm carrying everything and I have let God take control but what am I supposed to do? Am I to just sit back and watch everything?

  2. Glad to pray for you sister. It sounds like you have a lot of problems, and although prayers can certainly help, you don't have the shoulders to keep these burdens on yourself. You have to learn to set those burdens on the strong shoulders of Christ and then leave them there. Listen to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and you will be guided in the direction you need to go in "your" life and trust God to take care of those you love, because He cares for them even more than you. But He cares for our spiritual needs more than our physical needs, both are important to Him, but one take precedence over the other, sometimes the physical taking a temporary 2nd place to promote the spiritual. Again, glad to pray for your physical needs as well, because they are still very important.

  3. Also praying for you and your situation @Mconard
  4. A man called Jabez [which means a man of sorrow] prayed to God this, and God heard him:

    "And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested." (1 Chronicles 4:10)

  5. Some times we all find ourselves in places where it seems there is no hope at all for our situation. We usually turn to other people for comfort and wisdom on what to do, which is not a bad thing at all. The Lord wants us to totally rely on him in every trial, and tribulation. This is not an easy task to do, especially if you do not have a history with God. For me it is easy because I been saved for a long time, and I can look back, and see how the Lord strengthened me through every situation.

    The Apostle Paul who wrote most of the New Testament was not immune from such trials in his life. There was a time in which he (Paul) thought his life had come to an end, because of such hard times that had come upon him. Then he said, "All these things happened so he would not trust in himself but the living God who raises the dead." He endured through them because the Lord strengthened him. I have no doubt the Lord is strengthening you in this very hard time in which you see no end or hope. Humble yourself under the might hand of God casting all your cares upon him, because he cares for you.

    2Co 1:8 Brothers and sisters, we want you to know about the hard times we suffered in Asia Minor. We were having a lot of trouble. It was far more than we could stand. We even thought we were going to die.
    2Co 1:9 In fact, in our hearts we felt as if we were under the sentence of death. But that happened so that we would not depend on ourselves but on God. He raises the dead to life.(NiRV)
  6. Standing in agreement with the other prayer warriors, and I speak "Peace" into your situation.

    Philippians 4: 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
    6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
    7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
