Please pray for me and my family

I just heard my mom and my sister had a fight over a small issue today. She got slapped, and now she is in so much pain. My brother's wife also tried to lecture her on how she should speak to her mom, and she got more upset. I went to my brother's place to pick her up because she threatened to kill herself. She is now staying with me. I knew this was going to happen. I was very angry with my dad and told him this was his fault as I really saw this coming but I regret it now. His blood pressure got so bad and now he is in the hospital. My brother got very upset with me because I also blamed his wife for this. I also heard my mom got in a car accident this week. Her car is new was damaged badly, and just this past month, I broke up with my bf, also nearly got physical for the first time, and I am having major depressive episodes, panic attacks, and struggling, with anger, and bitterness, even before hearing about this. Now, I feel my family is under a curse or something and I am in so much fear now because bad things keep happening. I am very heartbroken. I pray that God have mercy on me and my family.

Please pray for us tonight.

Dear Kitty,

I've read that His mercies are new every morning....

Lamentations 3:22-23
The Lord’s acts of mercy indeed do not end, For His compassions do not fail.
They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.


In a devotional I read this morning by Brian Simmons and Gretchen Rodriguez titled "I Hear His Whispers" where they wrote.....
I want every part of you to be free.
I want you to be one with me—living in union with me. Allow yourself to be fully consumed with me—spirit, soul, and body. I want you to sense my presence in your spirit, your soul, and your body. I am as close as your next breath.
I want every part of you to be free. When your mind is consumed with your problems, you’re not experiencing the fullness of my love. I want you to find true freedom in complete oneness with me. So focus your thoughts and your mind on me. Trust me and completely resign your will to mine. Release your cares into my hands. I want to take your burdens and worries from you. Let me have control, and you will finally experience the freedom and unity in me. Let me give you the peace you long for and desire.


I know in my heart that as we are praying God is working.

Here is a link to another devotional...Enjoy and be blessed.
You Were Not Made to Worry

Love in Christ...

Thank you for your prayers and sharing the word of God.

My dad is currently doing ok. He talked to us and his health is stable. I was worried and felt so awful for blaming him. He left the hospital. My sister is recovering, but she is still very angry at her mom, and she was cursing her mom, her brother's wife, and that hurts me, but we are trying to help her let go of the anger. My sister has mental problems and sometimes bad attitude, and she does not want to seek any help, but she is considered adult, so this should not have happened. We are praying this won't happen again.

God bless.

Dear Kitty,

The battle has begun. When I first started putting my full trust in God, it was all hell broke lose, you are right now in the same spiritual battle I was in years back when I first started to know God. You have read my testimony, behold how much Satan tried to wreck havoc in my life using my closest family as my enemies when I decided to give my life to God, and that lasted for years. The ONLY thing you need to do right now is to pray to God with as much frequency as you can, cry to Him, plead with Him about all your problems, and most importantly, don't ever give up on praying to God and seeking Him in Jesus no matter how long it takes for things to change.

Your family is not under a curse, it is Satan who is trying to use family problems to destroy your faith
, just like how he used my parents to attempt to destroy my faith back then. But God is faithful, no matter how weak we are, His grace is there to sustain us. It is ok to feel weak, to take a break, don't burden yourself with what is going on around you to the point that you cannot bear. Pray to God about things you cannot change, and hold onto the faith of Jesus, knowing that God makes all things work together for good for those who love Him, no matter what happens in your life.

Thank you, sister.

Please, pray for me to make the right decision about something extremally difficult in my life now. Our God is patient and loving. I feel very hopeless these days and I am so depressed and I do not want to use drugs to cope anymore. and I just want to have some joy sooner, because I am tired and people who are trying to help me are also very tired. Please pray for this to end soon. I hate being miserable and unhappy. Thank you.

You are not alone in feeling hopeless and depressed, many people feel the same way, whether they are Christians or not. I feel hopeless about this world too and my PTSD triggered depression caused me to lose a recent job at a big company. I don't take any depressive drugs but I am basically not functional anymore in terms of managing stress. Most jobs are stressful these days which means I probably can't function well in many full time jobs. Despite the bleakness of all this, I still hope in God and just let go. Things like job, marriage, prosperity, worldly achievements count for nothing in God's kingdom, nothing in this world matters other than holding onto faith in God's salvation through Jesus. When you're tired, let go and just rest and pray to God. Spend whatever energy you have talking to God in prayer, reading the Bible and taking good care of yourself (eat healthy, sleep well, exercise). Don't overexert yourself with the worries of life, let your mind and heart focus on the goodness of God. Leave your troubles in God's hands, tell Him these things are in His hands now and let Him do His will through your circumstances, these burdens are too much for you to carry.

As for being miserable and unhappy, it really depends on how much you put your emotional energy into the worries of life. If you put your hope in God's kingdom in the future, if you set your mind in looking forward to a world without evil without pain without death, and let go of the worries of this life, then you will not be too emotionally burdened.

Even God's prophets like Elijah had moments of mental exhaustion and depression. When prophet Elijah saw that God's prophets were killed by the wicked queen Jezebel, he asked God to take away his life in his misery. Job in his misery after losing everything in his life also was depressed and questioned why he was even born. But despite all their misery, one thing they did was to never give up on God, and God carried them through all their suffering. Their stories are examples for us to see how people remain faithful to God and show their love for God by enduring whatever happens in their life.

It is only human to be tired and depressed, so don't let this state of mind discourage you in any way. God is very compassionate and He is right there suffering with you as you suffer.

Kitty, let me just share with you how my own suffering brought me closer to God. If you are suffering according to God's will, you are given a chance to get closer to Him.

Previously, I only had a head knowledge of how Jesus suffered for our sake to save us from sin. But after those years of persecution, emotional torment and pain, for the first time in my years of being a Christian, I felt I finally had a deeper experience of just how much Jesus suffered. I was abused, so was Jesus. I was persecuted by people close to me, so was Jesus by His own people. I was slandered and maligned, so was Jesus. I wept when I finally knew the kind of pain Jesus felt in His suffering. Sharing the same pain brought me closer to Jesus, and all who share in His sufferings will also be brought closer to Him. This is one reason why we endure misery and unhappiness, so we can know how our Savior felt in His sufferings and become more bonded with Him.

Don't stuff your pain down though, cry if you need to, as much as you need to, there is nothing wrong about grieving. Rest as much as you need to as well. When I was dealing with persecution from my parents, there were days when I did nothing but pray and cry and sleep. Then when those sad emotions are gone, I go back to my every day routines.

Also, don't be discouraged if you fail in your walk with God. Apostle Paul said we all stumble in our walk in various ways with God - and I stumbled a lot when I walked with God. But we leave the past and our failures behind and strive forward as though each day is a new beginning.

Thank you everyone. I am getting baptized this week to mark a new beginning with Christ. Please pray for my deliverance.

Glad to pray! For many, a great spiritual blessing is given at baptism, in return for our obedience in doing the Lords will in the matter. I pray that will happen in your case.

Hallelujah! You are in my prayers!
Thank you. This is happening tomorrow, and there will be a lot of people and family members praying for me to be delivered from all spiritual/emotional wounds of the past. I am very excited.

Amen. Thank you. I got baptized at around age 14 actually, but I did not know much back then. I am doing this to mark a new beginning so yeah I want to surrender to God's will and live according to the word of God. I want to start a new as a baby Christian again.

God bless.

Love .

It sounds like a strange request . But to forgive all in Love , God's Love , will heal all things .

Lift your anger and frustration to the Lord . And let His Love flow into you

Then take that Love , God's Love , mix it with your love and let it flow out of you to your heart to your family

I have some good news.

Yesterday, I got delivered from a Jezebel and a Leviathan spirit. Things got very nasty so quick but I thank God. The blood of Jesus is stronger than the devil, and all his tricks. This surprisingly is my second time going for a deliverance service, but this time it was very different, because I do not even remember portions of my deliverance. These hindering spirits just kept me away from going there to receive my freedom. I want to encourage everyone. If anyone needs this, please go. It is really worth it.

Also, my thinking and desires changed, especially after I made my confession. I repented of my sins, and all the sexual immorality for nearly 8-9 years of my life, and in the water of baptism, I felt the presence of God. I can tell that my life won't be the same again. My heart is clean. I can rise and lift head now in joy. Praise Jesus. I also wanted to say that I forgave my mother. She did not come, but that is ok. My dad sent her pictures and a video, and she is very pleased. We talked on the phone. She said she is proud of me.

Your prayers were not wasted. I made a promise to read my entire bible this coming year. I also want to volunteer to serve at my church again and I know It won't be easy, because I work full time and now I am a mom. We will see how this goes from here. I am happy and I did not cry like this before.

Thank you again for your prayers. & God bless.

Jesus is Lord.

Hi Kitty. The enemy came like a flood in your life, but God raised the standard. He deserves the praise. Remain in Him, there are more blessings coming your way.

Stay focused.
