I Need Prayer Warriors

Updated on August 29, 2009

I Am Needing Prayer

Romans 15:30

I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.

Oh how I need your prayers. I love to write, it helps me to vent, it helps me to help others that are going through the same things I've been through or am going through. Right now I feel so overwhelmed. I have stayed in chronic pain for years, I feel I'm addicted to the narcotic drugs. I have problems and we all have them. I have heard that the closer we are to God the more Satan will attack us. I am so concerned for my daughter she is trying to get her son back and the dad has him, he is being so mean, he knows we can't afford a lawyer, we have tried legal aid of all kinds and nothing seems to help. We have contact social services, free consultations, friend of the court, and so many others.

All my daughter did was drop the child off to the dad so she could work, well she lost that he won't give her son back..he got papers from a lawyer that says she can't take the child over 100 miles away as she visits him, this hurts because he lives in Michigan and we are in Ohio. She had to move back here because she was homeless. She was born in Michigan and we moved to ohio in 2005. I just don't understand why this is happening, she is not a unfit mom.

Also I am caregiver to my 70 year old mother, she has alzteimers and this is overwhelming for me, she is hard to get along with..she lives with me to..I'm trying to hold my marriage together and deal with alot of things within me. I know God has answered so many of my prayers and I feel I have failed Him somewhere down the road. I 'm sorry I'm letting this all out on here but where there are prayer warriors there I am, because I need all the prayer you have to offer. I stay sad but have to put on that happy face, I am dieing inside I think sometimes..Sometimes we let the trials of life get the best of us, but I feel that God has a plan for all this and the hard part is waiting.

In His time He will give me the answers I'm looking for. At times you may see a poem on here that is me venting, that is me crying. I yearn to run but I have to stay, I can't hide but I want to..thank you for reading..please pray for me..pray for my mental state, I feel so so tired..

Love BettyB

      Dear friend,

      I know it is hard sometimes, especially when it all seems to come at once. These are the days of testing for God's people as He has to know our hearts and if we'll stick with Him through thick and thin in faithfulness.

      It is good you ask for prayers. God promises: Ask, and you shall receive.

      CHIN UP...wait and see...

      Jesusmyjoy,i am saddened to know that you have been going through these trials and as Denizee above says. I hope by now that some of your problems have been sorted for you. I will pray for you dear sister as i know only too well what despair is like. Over the past 7 years our trials have not stopped. From our son breaking a disc in his back to loosing our grandchildren to our ex-daughter-in-law. From death to despair and everything in between. As the only Christian in my immediate family satan has had a field day with me. Like yourself the harder i pressed into God the worse my attacks. I really didn't know where to turn. When i could take no more i cried out to God. This scripture came to me "I will not test you beyond what you can bear but with it i will make a way out" Dear sister this is exactly what He did for me. I will also add you to our prayer chain as we all need uplifting.

      May God give you rest in His perfect peace.

      Praying that by this time in your life, the trials of when you wrote this have passed, and that you're back on track with the love & support you give in your Hubs to so many people. You are so right, the closer we get to God the more Satan attacks. I can attest to that - my life, my burdens, my grief and struggle for over two years has not ended. God bless you.

      I am glad that you have found a safe place to let it all out, and I can see from the comments that you have already had on this hub that God is already using what you have written to touch and help others. That feeling of letting God down somewhere along the road doesn’t sound to me like it has come from God it sounds more like the enemy is trying to get a look in and get your attention.

      You certainly have a lot to deal with at the moment but I can see from your relationship with God that there is nothing going on here that you and God together cannot handle. The enemy wants your attention on your problems God wants your attention on Him. God has a way of dealing with things in the most unusual and unexpected of ways. I pray for Gods peace for you and your daughter as you go through this hard time and for His grace and blessings to be upon you and your family.

      You have shown and shared much love compassion and encouragement here in Hubpages and I believe that you will reap what you have sown

      My heart goes out to you. I too am struggling in my walk with God. Not in the same way maybe, but still struggling. I think you were right when you said the closer we are to God the more Satan attacks us. Our faithful obedience and praise to God makes him not only angry but "Furious"!!!!

      Please know you are in my prayers. Oh yes one more thing a verse that has helped me is Romans 8:28 "And we know that God works all things for good to those who love God, and to those who are called according to His purpose.

      Just keep on keeping on.

      In Jesus,

      God TRULY is able! I know what it is like to have a Mother with Alzheimer’s and I know what it is like to go through a custody battle in regards to a grandchild. It is not at all easy.

      I don't say I know how you feel. Because each situation is different. But when I look back I can say that I have learned to lean and depend on the Lord. He can do the "IMPOSSIBLE."

      I can say that when it was all said and done; That it brought us closer together as a family.

      Some days you just have to take it a day at a time!

      "Trust in the LORD with ALL your Heart, and lean not to your own understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and HE WILL direct your path. I learned to PRAISE HIM through the storm... Blessings

      Listen, you do not have to feel you have failed Him. This is not a thought from God. He would not kick you when you are down. I will pray for you. "Cast your care upon the Lord, for He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7, and "Do not grow weary when doing good, for in due season you will reap if you do not faint." Galatians 5:7.

      p.s. Have you taken your trouble to your church congregation? Someone will help you.

      I am sorry for your troubles. It seems that when the storms finally seem to cease, that new ones, worse than the ones before rage up. You are in my prayers, always.

      John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled, ye believe in God, believe also in me. That verse has helped me in so many different ways. I hope it helps you too. I'll be praying in intercession for you. God loves you! Always remember that.
