Brothers & Sisters...... I wanted to take a minute and thank you all for your continued prayers during this uncertain time in my life. Jesus has been working in my life at his pace, which is a frustrating thing for me. I have learned during these 8 months to "be still" in his presence. My days are not filled with the cripling darkness that once was but there are still questions that have no answers yet. Something I have realized over the past several months is I don't remember ever having inner peace. I never had joy in my life. I never woke up happy and excited about anything. I always remembered wondering to myself, is this what life is supposed to be like? Is everybody unhappy? The older I got, the worse it seemed to get. Most of my life I would focus on the negative, what wasn't right in my life and became numb. I used to think to myself...why can't I smile? Why can't I have fun? All this said has made me realize, I was trying to write my story when Jesus should have been the one and only author! This revelation has taken time to realize as he has pealed so many layers back like an onion. Just when I thought there were no more layers, here would come more layers. Don't get me wrong.... I am extremely greatful what Jesus has done in my life. At this point in my life I find myself wanting more Jesus and more Jesus. This is uncharted territory for me. I find myself praying all the time, talking to Jesus, wanting more of Jesus, etc. A friend of mine explained to me he had the most intimate relationship with Jesus he has ever had and wanted even more. I can relate to this friend because I want the same. At this very moment in my life, I have an entirely different family and friends in my inner circle. For the first time I have a male friend who I consider to be my best friend, ever! I've never had that. We can hug and tell one another anything as well as I love you. Eight months ago, I couldn't fathom that ever happening. I have friends who care about me, which I have never had before. So it appears that my old life has died........ but Jesus gave me a new life, in him and placed people around me who know my past and do not judge me. They simply love me.....accept me......and want me to become the person Jesus had planned for myself the whole time. It's funny because I ask Jesus for the very same thing. For HIS will to be done in my life! So friends....... I guess you can consider this a praise report because of what Jesus has done for me. I love you all! Bruce

I need God's help and your prayers. I am drowning financially and am considering filing bankruptcy. I just got a bill from GA telling me I owe them almost $10,000 from 2007. I don't have the money and don't know what to do. I have been praying for God's help, guidance & support. Please help me....I am at the end of my rope. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I'm in the final week of being in the home of over ten years. The foreclosure happened in January and with the Lord's blessings I've been able to stay here while I was trying to purchase a new home. That effort has fallen through and so now I'm trying to rent a home by Wednesday. Would you please pray that our Lord will direct me and the real estate agent who wants me to contact him Monday? I'm exhausted and at wits end in trying to find a home. It seems that everything I've tried to rent or purchase has not been meant for me--the efforts fall through for various reasons. Also, I might as well ask for prayers for a job to come through. I've been unemployed for a year now. Understand that I was diagnosed with PTSD which I received medical assistance with and have been told I can go back to work, but there doesn't seem to be any organization willing to hire me. I'm praying for a part time job or full time job to start after my move. I'm staying close to the Lord by staying in the Bible, but I believe I just need a little extra in terms of prayer for me and this situation I'm in. Thank you. Your prayers did help me through earlier rough times and I thank God for everyone who has lifted me up in prayer in the past. I believe I just need prayers for God to support me through my next steps. THANK YOU!

I would like for y'all to pray for me. I am having problems with my job. I have been working there for about 8 days. My manager refuses to train me but yet wants to have an attitude with me and etc. I have been nothing but respectful to everyone and she screams at me that everyone hates me at work and that if I have an attitude with her one more time she's going to rip my head off. I have never had an attitude with her or any of the other employees. Everyone there has already decided that I'm the worlds worst person before I could even get my foot in the door. My brother works in the business next door and the employees of my job are always ranting to him about how horrible I am. Only one employee has been standing up for me and trying to help me teach me what I need to know. I'm on the breaking point and on the verge of walking out. Only problem is that I have no other job to go to. My anxiety and depression have been sky high. I don't know what else to do but pray.

Could you please pray my dad? He is in the hospital and in bad shape. If something happens to him, I don't have nothing to live for. If God cares he won't put me through this. I need His help. Thank you

Please continue to pray for my son. This is what his attorney told us. With the new arrest, he may serve time, lose his VA disability benefits, and be sent to court ordered rehab. I have advised him accordingly. If that isn�t enough incentive to get some help, I don�t know what is.

Hi, I am lonely and lost and I'm trying to find God. My life has no purpose and I feel so alone. I've asked God to come into my life but I don't feel any different. How do I know he is real and can hear me? How do I know if he has come into my life? Am I doing this right? Other people have told me he "speaks" to them in different ways but I don't get that?? I really want to know him and I want him to know me but how can this work if I can't be sure he hears me or even exists? When I pray, I don't feel anything special, it feels like I am talking to myself. I've been trying to read the Bible too but how do I know what I'm reading is actually real? It all seems so ridiculous and absurd - like a fantasy novel - did that stuff really happen? The other night I asked God to give me a sign sometime during the next day, I asked for him to show me a specific item if he is real and everything in the Bible is real and he didn't do it. He didn't show me the simple item I asked him to show me as a sign. Please, I'm begging for prayers and guidance from those of you who know how to talk to God - please help me.

I am going through a divorce. My husband is an alcoholic and doesn't want to quit drinking. I wanted more for my 8yr old daughter so that she dosent think this is how a marriage is suppose to be. We seperated but still live in the same house for right now. Two weeks after we seperated he was in a hotel with another women and has done this everyweekend since. It is so hard on me and of course he dosent care. I would just like prayers for Gods will and the strength to get through this. I know it is what God wants and it will be better for my daughter and me in the end. Thank you
