To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.
Please Pray For Someone

|Prayer Request:||Will you please pray for Paul Galloway in Ireland. I am going through a faith struggle and am confused and depressed to the point I prayed for God to call me home and end my life. I am doubting Gods Justice concerning the sufferings of this world and eternal punishment. I feel my wife and family would be better of without me and doubt the love of God for me as well as others. I have questions and lack peace and assurance about some doctrinal issues. I have been married for ten years and have a good marriage. My wife and I were both divorced in the past and have a good understanding of marriage divorce and remarriage. We attend a Pentecostal Church and have a good Pastor who in our opinion is a man of God who in the past assured us that our marriage was binding and not a state of adultery. He knows all the personal details. I have took a look at your statement of faith and it appears to be that you believe something similar to what we do on this topic. However I recently started to feel condemned about this and felt depressed and insecure. Please pray God heals me from all this torment and give my wife Carol and I a special word concerning this which will be effectual. Pray also for our marriage that we love respect and treat each other as God wills us to and for unity and peace. My view would be that sexual sin, actions of abuse and desertion which cant be reconciled are grounds for divorce and remarriage without sin and that those who have wrongly divorced and remarried commit adultery but if they repent that the new marriage is not perpetual adultery and they are called to remain in the new marriage. The Assembly of God Pentecostal teach this as well as some others from various backgrounds. However I understand that marriage should not be took lightly and have no intentions of ever making the mistakes of the past again and am committed to my vows to Carol who by the way is the best wife I could ever hope for. I have in the past struggled with depression and am ex military and have been diagnosed with Post traumatic stress which God has granted me grace with but this makes me vulnerable to being over scrupulous. Pray also that God provides for me the Christian counsel I would like with a good man of God. Thank you Paul. P.S I am of no danger to myself or anyone else and promise that if I get to low I will contact my G.P|
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
