To: My Sisters in Christ

I desperately need you right now! I am going through something truly devasting, something that I can't share with many people and I really need your open hearts and genuine prayers!

Ephesians 6:18
At all times, pray by the power of the Spirit. Pray all kinds of prayers. Be watchful, so that you can pray. Always keep on praying for all of God's people.

Sadly, I have been far away from my precious Lord but I need Him more than anything and I hate when I am so far away. He has patiently been waiting for me to come to Him again.

I know that prayer is powerful and I know the Lord listens and I know this is what I need to do. I not only need to do this but I want to so badly.

I need your help though. Can I count on you to pray for me and a very serious situation that I'm going through? I know that I can't do it without you. I need all the support and prayer that I can get. I would truly, truly appreciate it!

I'm going through something that will truly take a MIRACLE to change it but I believe in miracles. Do you?

Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

If you would like to be part of a Prayer Chain let me know and I'll organize it. We all need prayer and we all need support and sisterly love.

You can count on my prayers for you dear. Jesus still performs miracles and though you said you have strayed from Him, He is right there waiting for you to return to Him with your whole heart, mind, and soul.

I'll definitely be praying for you. God does answer all prayers. Though He may seem far to you, He's still right there. It's our thoughts, emotions and lifestyle that has the effect of lessening our awareness of His presence. My prayer will be that you shed all those things that are coming between you and God and that you regain your former closeness to Him. He's still right there!

Oh honey, I'm sorry to hear you're hurting right now! I'll be praying for you! If you want to, you can email me privately (it should appear after I comment). God uses all things for good, even when we don't understand! Good WILL come out of this, whatever it is!

Hi, there! You commented on an inactive blog of mine but I wanted you to know I'm still here! I'm praying for you and, as you already know, whatever your situation, God will deliver you.

"Weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning."

You are in my thoughts and prayers. And I will keep you lifted up in prayer.

One think I know....He is faithful.
Faithful even when we have not been. His love and pursuit of us His children will never stop. He created us for Himself....and we are written on His palm.
I have learned over the past several months that in His hands He can make a way where there seems no way. He is faithful and He is a strong tower where we can run and be safe.
I don't know what you are going through...but He will take over and change and protect if we let Him. So I will leave you with the words that He has spoken to my heart over the last few months.
"Peace be still...please be still and know that I am God."
Don't know if you know the song by Rush of Fools...but you can find it under peace be still on youtube.
He is faithful to keep that which we have committed to Him till that day.
Thank you Father for loving this sister....may your will be done in this situation. Thank you

Yes, I'll pray too. It's where everything good begins.

Count me in! I'll definitely keep you in my prayers! I've seen MIRACLES first hand, and I am always comforted by Jeremiah 29:11.

"For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope.

& thank you for all your comments!! You are awesome!

Marsha said...

I'm praying for you and God's perfect will to be done. I'm asking Him to bring a wise older woman to walk with you through this and to help your faith and relationship with the Lord to GROW PROFUSELY!
When the heat is on, it's important to stay in the protection of His strong tower and mighty arms.
One of the lessons I've learned over the years is the importance of having my life intertwined with other women of faith. I can remember years ago making a trip out to northern CA to the redwood forest and reading about their tremendous root system that intertwines with the other trees. That's what has been attributed to their age, health and stature. The same can be said of us. We need to be deeply rooted in the word of God, profusely growing and thriving with fellow healthy Christians.
My the Lord send encouragement your way through His word today.
Seeking Him, Marsha

Although I don't know what your situation is, the Lord knows all about it. So, I will join you in prayer for His Will. Nothing is impossible for God.

Isaiah 41:10 says "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

God doesn't move away from us ...we do. So, return to Him and His love and grace.

Debbie said...

Welcome back to the loving arms of our Father. Will be praying for you.

Catherine said...

I came over here after reading on Kelly's corner and I will pray. No matter what the situation is, He can heal it. He can heal. Have you read "the love dare" or seen the movie Fireproof? Check either of those out (preferably the book)...

I'm praying.

hi Brandi! i will definitely be keeping you in my prayers daily. only God knows what you are going through, but i thank Him that His love flows through all of His children and we can pray and care for one another. i also am so thankful that we serve a God of restoration. what ever we have done in our lives we know that through His precious son Jesus, we are forgiven. thank you Jesus for your sacrifice! i just want to let you know that God loves you and He has never left you. He is always there for you! isn't that awesome? we've all made mistakes and strayed away from Him, but what's good is that you know you need Him and He is there. i pray that you will trust Him with your life. i pray that you will surrender to Him (your all). i pray that you will listen to Him (His Holy Spirit). His Holy Spirit is here to help guide us and lead us into truth. what a beautiful gift! i had to learn that the most important way to really connect to the Father was through continuous prayer and reading His word. the Word of God is so amazing, all the answers to life is in that book. it is truly my compass in life. i also had to learn about the importance of obedience. we serve a holy and loving God that is concerned about putting us on the right path in our lives. He is such a loving and gentle God, and it is important that we obey and repent when we have sinned.

i'm 35 years old and i have been through so much Brandi, that only God could heal and bring me through. from years of sexual abuse in my childhood to becoming a young mother at the age of sixteen, to dealing with the abuse in my past in my young adulthood, i thank God for where i am today. Jesus healed me and God nourished me back to life and He will do the same for you. i owe everything to Him. nothing is too big or too small for Him, He can do all things. the key is we have to let Him take the will and not be co-pilot but passenger. believe me i have had some serious situations to where a miracle was needed and He came through. i also learned that it is important that we always seek His will for our lives. what is His plans and purpose for our lives. we have to learn to have complete faith in Him.
like Jeremiah 29:11 says For i know the plans i have for you, says the Lord. they are plans for good and not for disaster(evil), to give you a future and a hope. God has great plans for you Brandi! i pray that what ever you are going through that God's will be done, He knows what is best for you. i pray that He will give you strength and you will grow spiritually through this. i always ask God to show me myself and what is in my life that i need to change, and He always does. i also had to learn to be very patient with with God, He works things out in His timing and in His way which is perfect. so i am praying that you also get understanding and build a closer and personal relationship with Him everyday. God loves when we seek Him and want to know Him and His will for our lives. please pray for me also. i will continue to pray for you that Jesus will give you peace. yes, i would love to be in the prayer chain.

God Bless You Brandi,
love Charmaine

Our God is an awesome God of miracles. He loves you and will not leave nor forsake you. You are a child of God, and He forgives you when you ask for forgiveness. Praying He will meet your needs ~

Hi B...I found you through Crystal.
Father God I lift up this dear sister to you and I ask that you give her peace and I thank you for meeting all her needs according to your riches and glory. I thank you that your promises are yes and amen! I thank you that B will find your promises and speak the Word out loud many times a day. I thank you that Jeramiah 29:11 is true and that You have a great plan for her life. I thank you that you call her MORE than a conqureror. That You have given B the mind of Christ and she takes every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. I thank you Lord that Psalm 91 is full of Your promises. That the secret place is in Christ. I thank you that You will see her through whatever it is she are going through. I thank you that Your death on the cross paid for our past, present and future sins. That your arms are always open wide. and that You love us with an everlasting love. That You will never leave her or forsake her. We know it is the thief that comes to steal, kill and destroy...but it is you Jesus that came that we may have life and have it more abundantly! Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly above and beyond all we can ask or think we ask all this in Jesus name!
AMEN!
Bless you dear one!
Patti

minpinmom said...

I will be praying for you hon. God still does miracles! I myself am an early 1960's miracle. When the doctor said there was no hope of me living at the tender age of 4, God said there IS hope. I will be 50 in July.

tonsofsons said...

Praying for you, sweet one. God does have a plan for you. He is waiting for you. And He has never forgotten you.

Mediate on Psalm 23 and memorize it.

God does performs miracles. I'm a living testimony. Read here....
