    Not really comfortable at this time speaking on any specifics of what I'm going through right now but I will say that the situation I'm facing is the most difficult thing I have ever dealt with. It involves more than just me, but I'm the only one praying for renewal, salvation. Basically intercession that in turn, will affect me as well. I feel like Job, like I have daggers being thrown at me everyday. There may be a day or moment where the sun peeps through, but then, the very next day or moment later here come the daggers twice as many and three times as fast. My faith and resiliance to hold steadfast to the promises of God and against these attacks of Satan is strong, I know this is just a test, but sometimes it gets so hard especially since this is a daily thing. I find myself at the point of tears everyday, when it seems like everyone else doesn't care. Though that though could just be the work of the enemy as well. I am willing to fight this battle as long as God wants me to but at the same time I want the breakthrough to come quickly. I know that as long as I can keep my hand in God's hand I will come out of this victorious. I'm a asking for your prayers for my continued strength and resolution of my situation

    Took a spill on some ice at work tonight, kinda did the splits. Not sure how my groin muscle is going to respond to it overnight, so would appreciate any prayers that I am not in too much pain come morning. Thanks in advance, God bless.

    HI FallenAngel, One of the greatest testable ways is to compare prophecy from the Old Testament and find that there were hundreds that were specifically fulfilled in the New Testament (at least a 400 year difference in setting) especially fulfilled in the Person of Jesus Christ. Other faiths come up empty when trying to accurately foretell future events. A more subjective answer to your question would be a changed life from the time I was into drugs, the occult, Eastern religions etc. all of which plunged my life into deeper darkness and confusion. It wasn't until I came under the conviction of the truth of His Word and come through His death on the cross was I resurrected into new life and a sound mind.

Please join my family and I in prayer that it is not the flu and that she will be okay. We are very worried about her and, to make it worse, they are in New Mexico right now wit no family present!

    Hello everyone, I hope all are doing well. I've been a Christian since I was 13, I am 31 now and although I am not new to Christ I feel like I am. I have only recently been reading the Bible and getting into prayer the past 6 or 7 months due to new experiences bringing me closer to God. I just want to share my journey and be inspired by others through this site. I believe interacting with other believers will be a blessing to me as I grow in my faith and closer to God. Thank you

    No bunkers. No food caches. No guns. No gold. No Bitcoin. 7 TIPS FOR PREPARING FOR THE GREAT TRIBULATION 1. Cleanse yourself of every defilement of body and spirit, as necessary. By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before Him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and He knows everything. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do what pleases Him. (1 John 3:19-22 ESV) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9 ESV) 2. Put on the whole armor of God. …Be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might… Take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand, therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God… (Ephesians 6:10, 13, 14-17 ESV) 3. Pray. (For yourself, and for your brothers and sisters in Christ.) To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints… (Ephesians 6:18 ESV) “But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:36 ESV)/"Watch ye, therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man." (KJV) 4. Trust in the Lord. (Take Him at His word, prove it for yourself, and stand on it---as though your LIFE depends upon it.) “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is in the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7,8 ESV) 5. Prepare your mind to suffer for Christ’s sake---and look forward to the joy and rest to follow! …Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2 ESV) Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when His glory is revealed. (1 Peter 4:12,13 ESV) “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy.” (John 16:20 ESV) 6. Cast all your anxieties upon the Lord. (1 Peter 5:7) When I am afraid, I put my trust in You. (Psalm 56:3 ESV) When the cares of my heart are many, Your consolations cheer my soul. (Psalm 94:19 ESV) 7. Keep a loose hand on everything you have (your possessions, your loved ones, and your own life)---and prepare to lose it all for Jesus. “Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it.” (Luke 17:33 ESV) "Whoever loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me." (Matthew 10:37 ESV) If anyone is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if anyone is to be slain with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. (Revelation 13:10 ESV) ---- “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, Nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9 ESV) ---- For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward Him. (2 Chronicles 16:9 ESV)

    Hi fellow believers: I have known the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior for almost 64 years. God by His grace sent the gospel to my family at which time my father and mother were saved. As a boy, I discovered that if I died as I was in my sin I would be lost forever. On March 11, 1954, walking home from school I wrestled with, "how can |I believe?" I believed I was a sinner, I believed that Jesus died on the cross, I believed he arose from the dead and I believed he was coming again for believers. I was not ready to meet Him! I tried to believe and feel saved...to no avail. I came to a point where I gave up trying and was thinking on the truth of (John 3:6) ..."Whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life." I rested on His promise that day and was saved by His grace. I love the words of a hymn: "My sin, O the bliss of this of this glorious thought, My sin not in the part but the whole...is nailed to His cross and I bear it no more, itb is well it is well with my soul." (Peace Like a River, Stafford) Robert

    I came to this forum to escape a rather toxic discussion environment I was in that to be frank, was also a very bad influence on me as a infant Christian. If you're willing, I want prayers that this place will be a safe haven for me. When I left the other discussion group, I was told that I was "running from my problems" rather than facing them and that this place would be no better. I was told that it was unChristian to run from problems and that God wanted me to stay in a toxic environment to make it better or make the most of it and that my escaping was very bad and unChristian. When I came to this forum, I scrutinized it by reading a lot of posts, but I find myself agreeing with a lot or at least seeing the light or wisdom of posts. I'm not perfect and I do make mistakes too, but I want to put my best foot forward, try to get along with people here, and obey the Terms of Service. And if I have wronged in some way in the past... I hope that all parties and God will forgive me.

    The only thing left to try is asking Jesus to show Himself to you in your heart, to open your eyes to His glory in creation, and to allow the Holy Spirit to show you the truth of His words. You tried looking everywhere else ... try Him.

    I'm 16, and I have betrayed myself and the lord. I don't know what I was thinking, I stopped praying for months, forgot about the Lord and forgot about myself. I was with so many men, all of which were much older than I, and it was all for this. This terrible mistake. I am currently five months pregnant with a married man's baby. I need help from God and I need help from myself. I need somebody to talk to and somebody to help me find my way back to my faith.

    Is there a good prayer for stupidity? Not that I want more stupidity, and I will live with what I have, but is there a good prayer of warning not to use it to the extent I do sometimes? I am in such pain! I know better yet "stupid" takes over, and I say so what that you are alone and the seven foot tall china hutch with the heavy glass doors is too much for one person to move never mind take out of the house. Get it out of the house and ready it for the trash truck if someone doesn't take it with it's FREE sign taped to it anyway. Just do it, go ahead. And I do. Then I painted three hundred sixty square feet of ceilings, removed carpet tack tracking and base cove from two rooms, put a second coat of wall trim paint on two rooms. And; as I was bending over trying to get some extra paint on the area where the base cove had been, it happened. That old "I got ya!" lower back pain. Can't straighten up, can't walk, can't take a shoe off, can't get to the pain pills- have to yell like an idiot a near dying groan to my bride for help. Now I am in an upright chair, spouse has brought me a computer to play with. I am on the pills, packed in ice and contemplating over fifty years of stupid. One with a once broken back, and torn everything, probably shouldn't push the limits. It is stupid to do so thinking, hey this time I'll get by okay nothing will happen. Anyway it is obvious to me that I will never get smart regarding such things, and so I wonder, is there a good prayer for stupidity?

    Howdy all, John here. I' new to discussion boards, but think I handle this. I have truly lived the parable of the prodigal son. With couple of exceptions, I have made horrible choices. I have background in medicine, as well as 13 years of service in the US Army, ending in my becoming disabled. I loom forward to learning some new things & sharing the story of how The Almighty has used my mistakes & turned them good. Blessings all, John

    Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (NIV) After years and years of struggle in life, hard work, falling down and standing up again and again falling and standing up, achieved many and lost many things, but among the many things that I lost was One and only One thing that really mattered , Myself. In my ignorance, I though that my successes and my failures are because of me, because - I am - in command of my life and forgot that the Real (I AM) my Creator, My GOD he and only him is the one who is controlling my life and he knows what is the best for me, simply because he unconditionally Loved me. I thank you Lord that eventually you saved me from my illusions and showed me the real way , Your way through Jesus Christ and his Salvation and made me know that this life doesn't worth worrying much about because it is just a passage to the real eternal life through Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior. Amen God bless you all

    Please brothers and sisters pray for Chinese fellow Christians. The national persecution on Christianity seems getting worse and worse now. Recently a megachurch in Shanxi Province has been demolished. It is a nationwide campaign to tear down Christian churches. Please pray for us and God remember your brotherly love. Thank you.

    So I have a new diagnosis of Pickwickian Syndrome. It's a potentially deadly combination of obesity, chronic respiratory failure, and sleep apnea (all of which apply to me). The treatments are CPAP and lose weight. This could be reversed best case scenario, or I could die of it or complications of it. Not good news. Please pray for me. Thanks.

    Hi Worthy family, I'm asking for prayer for my son-in-law Josiah. His feet, ankles and legs started to swell on December 28th and each day they have gotten worse. He had an appointment with his primary care doctor today (Feb 1st) at 5 pm but at 3 pm he started to have intense pressure in his chest and became short of breath.... so he went straight from work to the ER where there's a flu epidemic and they had to put him on the psychiatric floor to do testing. The tests for all the major things have come back good to normal. Please pray for this wonderful Christian man. As I type they have ordered a test to look for deep vein blood clots. His feet look like purple clubs, his ankles the size of cantaloupes. I do ask that you pray for wisdom for the medical staff, protection from the flu virus and for relief of pain. Thank you!

Steve my brother was there today and he really didn't know who he was , and isn't really talking much. Different than my mother Dad is going the route Ernie my Step Dad went Stopped eating then went on hospice , no more walking , then it wasn't much longer after that he passed. So I hope my Dad gets better This is from my brother in law from last night. His mom passed away at the beginning of December from Alzheimer's and dementia, so it's been a rough month for him and my sister so if you guys could pray I know they would appreciate it tha is!

    We have been praying about our Church establishment and revival. We are building it from almost nothing but we trust in our good Lord for establishment. We are on prayers too about its revival and restoration. I thank God foe all of you friends for the prayers about the conflicts and opposition we had last year, i is over. Glory to God! I am trusting upon God for my family salvation, especially my dad and provision. Please stand with me in this. Amen

    I think maybe the best approach to a significant other, is not to look for one at all. If you are meant to have one, the Lord will put her in your path I would think. As far as not being missed in chat, I will miss you, but understand that you need to take care of yourself, so I support your decision. Praying for you brother. God bless

    I want to forgive a friend of mine from another site that I have mentioned before, and the people who mistreated me in the past. Somehow, I think that posting about it may help me release these emotions. I won't still talk to them at this point in time. I have a feeling in the pit of my stomach that I don't think it's a good idea. But maybe I will reconcile in a year or more. Who knows. I feel this is one of the last things I need to do to make myself right. Forgive and not mention it anymore unless it comes up again, but also pray about it. I'm really enjoying this forum and have met some great people like wingnut. And I just wanted to utilize this board one last time to say that I'm done being the shadow of "living in Christ", and now, I really want to live in Christ.

    Welcome to worthy I don't think your life is over, but one thing you need to do for sure is stop this relationship with a married man. As for your child, I don't think you should call your baby a mistake. You are going to bring a baby into this world as a result of your mistake, but you need to love that child dearly. Stop sinning, and repent. Turn back to the Lord, He is waiting for you. Praying for you. God bless
