I been using crystals and tarot card reading on and off and then im back in the bible again. I cant make up my mind to give my life to Jehovah again. Im scared i might not be happy as a christian because I like gambling and looking up dirty videos but this stuff only numbs the pain inside me. I want to believe in Jesus but I dont want to go to church because people are rude and it will effect my mental health. Please pray for me.

Hi everyone,

Been chatting to GA on and off for about 6 months now and I can tell you she's really sweet but she struggles with lots of different issues on many levels, and I mean really struggles, so please do not blitz her with condemnation, sermons and warnings. It'll be about as welcome and as helpful as a bout of Covid.


Hi GA, course I'll pray for you, no problems. Not heard from you for a while so I admit you'd slipped off my list - you're back on :D I'm happy to pray for you but if I do, can you please do yourself a massive favour? You're back on here because you've dabbled a bit in sin and found that it's overrated and you know you need Jesus back in your life. I think we both know that sin promises fun and delivers an empty hollow and lonely feeling. It's great that you're back, but please try, try, try to stick to the race that Paul describes in 1 Corinthians 9:25-27. What Paul's saying rings true with me. In the UK before Covid a popular pastime was a 5k park run. I thought I'd try my hand and my PB was 45 minutes and I came about 480 out of 500 runners. At the end I could barely breathe or stand, and yet there were fellow runners, my age, who'd done it in half the time and looked like they could easily run the course again. The difference was they trained every night; I just turned up.

What I'm saying is that you've previously accepted God's rescue and accepted Jesus into your life so your salvation is secure, you're name's in God's Book of Life. God absolutely loves you to death - literally, His son's death! He wants you badly and I suppose if you're only prepared to give God part time He's likely to settle for that. But don't expect a fulfilled, blessed and amazing walk with Him, blessings and comfort from His Holy Spirit and the joy and comfort of knowing that you are God's delight. Please, stop looking for comfort and fulfilment anywhere else, it doesn't exist anywhere outside of God. He wants your undivided love and affection; please don't say no.

Yes of course I'll pray for you but can you please start talking to God as often as you can. Just tell Him how you feel, talk to Him about whatever's troubling you, tell Him you love Him because ..... Thank Him for .......... Just chat to Him like He's your best mate, because He is. Do that and that lovely warm fondness and affection you desire and that warm lovely feeling that you're being looked after by the God who's all powerful and with unending unconditional love.

Lots of love, Andy xxx

PS: do yourself a favour and find yourself a better church!!! :confused:

Dear Lord God, thank you for Jesus's parable of the Prodigal Son, it's so reassuring that no matter how far we wander, you're still longing for us to come back to you. I know that I've tested that almost to the limits at times and yet you've always come good. I thank you and adore you, I appreciate and depend upon your forgiving and deep deep endless love that gives me the reassurance that I can leave all the negative stuff, my sins and shortcomings with you to forgive and forget, so I can get on with seeking your pleasure through praise, adoration and following your will in my life.

And so Lord God, in the same way I pray for my sweet, lovely sister GA. Please Lord give her just a little revelation and experience of yourself, not because she or I deserve it, but because you love us. Draw near and fill her with your loving, comforting Holy Spirit, take her by the hand and lead her back you, and then keep her by your side.

Amen

Glad to pray for you GA, dont be afraid of what you might have to do as a christian, Jesus is a good master if we submit to Him, and only wants what is good for us, not like castor oil (LOL). And to begin with, you might miss some of the stuff you used to do, but eventually, you will not only be glad you did give them up, but will see how you were a slave to evil spirits who hated you and wanted you separated from the one who can help you, Jesus!
