Prayer Request

Do not be despaired:

Have I not commanded you? "Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)

Have you ever been on the other side of the phone and God is silent?
You hear static on the line but God is not answering?
You wonder what is He doing, and is He going to respond to your prayers?
Days, weeks, months go by, still no answer.
God doesn't want you to despair, He is silent, not because He doesn't care about your situation. It is because He is up to something!
God is picking His moment, and He is doing a work behind the scenes!
There will be light, when there was darkness before.
Never question Jesus love for you!
The cross is a perfect example of pain and suffering He endured for you and I. Because of His great love for us! He paid the price for our sins, and met the demands of a Holy God!
We deserve judgment, but God gives us grace and mercy!
God is not glad that you feel the pain in your trial. But uses it, so you will draw close to Him! The goal for this is spiritual maturity.
Don't stop believing! Hang in there!
God will leave you in a better state, than you were in when your problem first started.
If God waits, it's not because of a problem. It is because He has a purpose! God will at times send trials because there will be a content to our faith, that was never there before. Never limit God's ability!
We can face tomorrow!
Don't throw in the towel prematurely!
Nothing is over till God is finished with it. God will have the last word!
We need to hold on to our hope.
God delights in doing the difficult. In order for you to see clearly, that nothings impossible to Him!
In chapter 11 of the gospel of John, Jesus allowed Mary and Martha, to experience sorrow because their brother Lazaras died. They sent word to Jesus that Lazarus was sick, but Jesus delayed His coming.
Soon Lazarus died. When Jesus finally came, Mary fell at His feet saying to Him, "Lord if you had been here, my brother would not have died." when Jesus saw her weeping, He was deeply moved in His spirit and greatly troubled. Eventually Jesus told her did not I tell you if you believe you would see the glory of God? Doesn't it seem that God is telling us that also? Do you believe that you may see the glory ofGod also?
Lazarus was eventually raised from the dead. And Jesus was glorified!
Mary and Martha, the disciples etc., their faith was strengthen.
Child of God, can He not do the same for us? Although God allows us to go through trials. And the pain we go through because of it. He enters our sorrows and is right beside us in the storm. He gives us grace and mercy to endure it. While we wait upon Him to answer the other end of the phone! We must wait upon the Lord. Some I've read prayers on this app. Are ready to give up. Remember, it's not your will to be done, but God's. It might not turn out the way you hope for. It will be what He sees best. You just have to trust Him, for your life. Blessed be our God! May your will be done in our lives, and teach us faith so that we will grow in our walk with you and rely on you for everything.

%u201CMost assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. John14.12.NKJV The Holy Spirit has truely used you to touch peoples spirits enough to endure his presence. You seem very strong willed. And I believe your are still hungry for God. Read the book "Good Morning Holy Spirit" by Benny Hinn. And it will truely make u a stronger warrior of God. And you will have more understanding of what the Lord desires from his people.
