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

|Prayer Request:||I want to pray for the person who feels they destroy/ ing their life by self destruction and please pray for my friend who is so similar. I pray for their eyes to be fixed on Jesus and he will change the landscape around them and them. I pray for hope and for them to have their minds and hearts changed by Christ through reading the bible and asking God to draw close to them personally. I feel I have been there and am still working on things, but thank God that he does change us if we open up our heart to him.I have been changed almost so my old self is barely recognisable as I was a really bad person and everyone used to know me as a bad person who would never change, everyone had given up on me, even my own family used to just say I was rotten for life! Please pray for my friend who seems to be going around in similar circles and that people going through this cycle can access help from God and other christians? I pray that God would bring tough christians in their path who understand them? I pray that God re tell these people (powerfully) how we are all broken and are so sinful and selfish and stop caring about each other because we have grown cold and heartless. This was not Gods plan though, God brought his son and he was sinless, completely unselfish by extreme will power and came to die on a cross to save us all from our sin. It was the greatest love story ever, he loved all of us despite how selfish and arrogant we might be and rescued us so that we can meet with God and have a personal relationship with him. Isiah 65 v24 "Even before they call, I will answer, and while they are still speaking I will hear". Isiah 91 v 14 "The Lord says, "Whoever loves me, I will save. I will protect those who know me". (Not just the perfect people, the ones who do stupid stuff all the time too, just like I do!!!!) 15"They will call to me, and I will answer them. I will be with them in trouble; I will rescue them and honour them. I will give them a long, full life, and they will see how I can save." In fact the bible is pitted with verses about calling on God and when we really call out he answers us! Jeremiah 33, v3. Isiah 58 v 9 "Then you will call out, and the Lord will answer. You will cry out, and he will say, "Here I am." Also I pray for my friend and all people struggling with self confidence psalm 139.(The whole thing is amazing, but. "v1 "Lord, you have examined me and know all about me. You know when I sit and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them. You know where I go and where I lie down. You know thoroughly everything I do. Lord, even before I say a word, you already know it. You are all around me - in front and at the back- you have put your hand on me. v13 "You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother's body. I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way.... "You saw my bones being formed as I took shape in my mother's body. When I was put together there, you saw my body as it was formed. All the days planned for me were written in your book before I was one day old." At 12 I decided to kill myself as I could not see hope and some really crazy stuff happened just before I went ahead with it and God revealed himself to me and said he loved me as my Heavenly Father and he is not hard and uncaring like a world father can be, he loves us even though we don't even deserve it!|
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.
