4 Prayer Requests
Prayer Request by: Bluestar797
I have a couple of friends that could use some prayers.
Friend 1: Basically her best friend killed herself a couple of years back. Now she said before she met me that when she got her step-dad (who is a jerk) that she'd reached a "breaking point" where she almost killed herself. Then when she first met me, she was terrified because I broke down a wall she built up. Fast track forward, about a month ago she said that she'd reached this breaking point again. She called me on the phone and I talked to her until she'd calmed down. But lately on her deviantART journals she'd been talking about death a lot and she asked if she killed herself would she be missed. At which point, I'm now extremely worried about her. Also, she's debating on whether God is real or not. She said she haft believes him and haft doesn't. Also, her mom wants to move to this new house, but they aren't sure if her step-dad will let them. Please pray that she'll finally decide that God is real and believe and let Jesus forgive her. Also, that she'll get over this depression and be happy and lean on God for support. Also that if it's according to God's will, that her and her family will be able to move to this better house.
Friend 2: My other friend has had a very troubled past. I won't go into details, but she has nightmares because of it. Now she seems to be afraid that she'll make the wrong choice about her salvation. Now I thought she was saved, but lately she seems to think God isn't fair and that it's not right that the nonbelievers should go to hell. She says Christianity isn't perfect and I'm not sure if she's blaming God or what. Also her dad has cancer. I once asked her: what do you want from God? And she yelled at me that she didn't know. She is extremely broken and needs prayer. I ask for prayer that she'll give in to God and know that she can relax in his arms. I also pray that if it's God's will, that her dad will be cleared of cancer.
Friend 3: He once called me and said that his mind is converting to that of an atheist. And that scientific proof that God exists might be the only thing to turn his mind. So I was reading devos and the one for that month was called truth and LOADED with scientific proof that God is real and I gave that to him to read. I pray that he'll be persuaded by the evidence and come back to God.
Now I have a person who isn't a friend, but she is a Buddhist, bisexual, and she hates me. I've tried preaching about God to her in the past, but she seems to think that Jesus is the devil. I pray that if it's in God's will that she'll turn from her sin and come to him.
Also, I have a family friend who's wife has cancer in her pancreas. I pray that his wife may be cleared of it, if it's in God's will.
And finally, I feel God may be calling me to leadership and take responsibilities that I've never even thought about doing in my life, so I would appreciate some prayers there!
Thank you in advance, and may God's will be done

I feel bad even asking for help anymore. I've tried to fight the battle against sin for so long, but I feel that it is getting too strong of a grip on me.
My own interests and ambitions are getting the best of me, and I am having such a hard time trusting God to bring me back. I don't feel His love or presence anymore. I hope that He will not let me fall into the wickedness of this world, but frankly I feel like He doesn't care about me anymore. I feel terrible saying that, but I just don't know what else to think right now. Anxiety is tearing me apart, and there is no one that I can talk to about this.
Would God ever forgive my faults that I have committed against Him wilfully? I want to repent of it, but it just keeps coming back. I pray for Him to give me a new heart, one of selflessness and purity, but I feel that God has turned his face from me. I can feel all of the sin in my mind; I can see all of the wicked thoughts. I don't want them, but they come back stronger all of the time. I feel like my conscience has been seared, and a degree of apathy has crept in to this state of spiritual atrophy. I feel as if I have lost my purpose now, and that everything that I do is a mere waste of energy. I don't want this numbness anymore—I want to feel again. I want to feel God's presence and His love. I want all of my idolatrous ambitions to fade, and for God's purpose to prevail.
I'm sorry for being so utterly negative, but I just don't know what to do at this point. I hope that the Lord will not let me lose my faith and trust in Him. But not as I will, but as He wills it to be. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I have a prayer request. My bf has decided to put a hold on our relationship for awhile and think about whether we're right for each other. I loved him so much and now I feel broken inside. Pray that... everything will be alright. And that maybe we'll be back together when he's mature enough
