M.L., Canada - Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I felt really convicted of sin this past week, and sometimes I just wallow in it and get depressed. But I believe God has called me to be a pastor. I know deep inside what I should do. However, that extra boost of encouragement from this site helped me a lot. I could not sleep tonight and now I know why. I was talking with God, having a real conversation with him in REAL TIME. It felt as if I was wrestling with Him like Jacob did. I felt that God wanted to make my calling sure by ensuring that I will not sleep until I vow to never to let go of Him and His precious promises. Please pray for me as I journey on, because I am still young and in need of direction. I know that God will guide me, but I must pray for courage to keep going. I struggled with a lot of self-esteem issues and lots of temptations, but after watching the video on this site, I felt blessed by God. Keep up the good work and may God guide you through this journey of faith!
M.S., Maryland, USA - I'm back again to say thank you all who prayed for my son and his drug addiction problem. He is moving out today and my wife and I can start mending our marriage and I can find a job, the Lord willing. It's good to pray for others when things are bad for you.
J.P., Georgia, USA - Because of my divorce, I could no longer claim my boys as dependents. I was hit very hard last year having to pay $2400 in state and federal taxes. I expected the same this year, and prayed that God would have mercy on me. Well, He did! I only had to pay $250 in federal taxes and ended up receiving a state refund of $360! God is faithful!!!
K.S., New York - I wanted to share with wives that are trusting in God to bring their husbands to the Lord. God saved my husband and I thank Him for it. I praise Him for it. Because no matter how things look don't give up. God is faithful.
D.O., Uganda - This semester as we were going for exams. I had not paid up but I asked God for the balance I had to pay. I had one of my friends but I least expected a bail out from even when he was a believer. When I told him his willingness to lend me the money to payup was overwhelming. I have since learnt to trust God even when we think time is up; He is never late and yet not so early. God bless you.
L., Philippines - If you asked God something, don't be bitter if He doesn't give you what you asked for, because He only gives what is trully needed. I ask for my broken relationship to be restored. He didn't give me that. But He is giving me now encouragement and strength to conquer my heartache with the will and help of people around me, my family and friends. Please pray for my continual recovery and a life lived in Christ. Pray for my family and me. Thank you with all my heart.
E.H., Philippines - I sent a prayer request here a few months ago and I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and encouragement. Please keep praying for me to be strong. Now that I feel my life has directions and I'm taking it one step at a time, my family thinks I'm wasting my life because I found the strength to resign from a job that is "good" in the eyes of society but not to me. 3 months has passed, I still have no job but I'm enjoying it as it is. Applying for a job from time to time. Taking it slow, undergoing self-realizations and all. I know that as long as I feel I'm in the right track with how I plan my life is good enough, but what my family thinks affects me 100%. Please pray for me, for serenity and wisdom, and please pray for my family too. I pray for God to open their hearts and realize that every person hs different journeys towards a "successful" life and that not all good paths are "their" way. I will really appreciate a kindly advice and prayers.
