    Father God, please help @TwoSnapsUp to keep her mind stayed on You. Help her to remember how it was You who brought her through the last time and that she can rejoice in knowing that she can trust You to bring her through this trial she is facing right now. Strengthen her as she daily puts on the whole armor of God and stands ready waiting on You for instruction, direction and victory. In the name of Jesus Christ, we make these petitions, Amen!

    As a suggestion, please read through the 30 Day Praise Report Challenge found here in this forum. https://longhaircareforum.com/threads/30-day-praise-report-challenge.799909/ Take your time and read through each praise out loud. Allow your ears to actually hear the praises coming from your lips -- it will change your whole perspective. Feel free to add your own praise as you see fit.

    I'm only saying it here because I have no one to talk to.

    I feel like I exist solely to be tortured. I sometimes wonder if God, himself, is laughing at me. I'm tired of holding on the hope that things will get better. I'm tired of having no one to bare my soul to. I've lost all faith. I give up. I surrender. I'm truly breaking down inside and don't think I can recover this time. I'm tired of feeling like this. I don't want to feel like this anymore.

    I got it out and the reality of this only made me feel worse.

    I just want to let you know that I have felt the way you feel. No doubt, it's hard. You want to give up, you ask yourself, "What's the point?", and despite all your praying you feel like things are getting worse instead of better. The battle starts in the mind. Keep your mind stayed on Jesus. No, it's not easy. Sometimes it feels impossible, but keep your mind stayed on Jesus. Keep pushing. Out of your pain will come great treasures. I've been where you are and I can testify that things do get better. Things will get better for you. There is a season for everything. Don't get caught up in the season you're in now. Keep pressing forward. I'm praying for you. Don't give up. God hasn't forgotten you.

    I few weeks ago, I would have read this message and kept pressing forward. At this point I have nothing left in me. I’ve been ‘pressing forward’ for a while now. It just leads me deeper and deeper into a dark hole. I’m tired of having to put on a happy face when I am out and about.

    I don’t know. I just know that I am tired and drained of all energy used to hope and have faith. My heart is broken and I can’t even tell you why. It just is. I feel like God has turned his back in me.

    It’s hard to put all this into words. I just know I’ve start to lose all feeling.

    Anyway, I really appreciate you reading and responding.

    @TwoSnapsUp

    One more round...give it one more round. This time, not in your own strength, but in God's strength. For in your weakness, in your hurt, in your doubts and fears, uncertainties... God is strong and Hus is with you.

    It's not your feelings which dictate the presence of God in your life, it's not your perception of how it should feel, it's by choosing to believe God in spite of everything contrary.

    God still loves you and it not based upon your expectations from someone or some thing or situation that did not produce what you expected. If nothing more, God has shown His love for you by protecting you from an unseen / unknown greater hurt in this life.

    One more round...with God. He will answer you and carry you with more love than you have ever known.

    In Jesus' Name, Amen ❤

    Thank you. You made some good points. I also plan to speak to my doctor about medical options. It’s just that bad, I believe.

    I pray that the Right options will be given to you. You are not alone. These are not random words...you are not alone. God is right there for you to talk to about it ALL. He is listening. ❤

    Looking for prayers for my marriage and my family. Trying to get direction on what to do about both. I can’t take another year like last year and neither can my children. I feel that I hear from God but none of it makes sense. Praying for peace, wisdom, and direction to make the right decision for me, my marriage, and my children.

    @AgeinATL, God is not the author of confusion. Get still before Him and listen as He speaks to your heart.

    Father in heaven, I ask that You speak to AgeinATL's heart and give her Your peace as only You can. Help her to hear from You and to make decisions about her family that brings glory to Your name. Help her to trust You and believe that You know what is best for her and her family even if she does not understand. Strengthen her and help her to remember to walk and talk with You every single day. Remind her that You created her, her husband and her children in Your image and that they all belong to You--that You love them one and the same. In Jesus Christ's name, Amen!

    I need help in crying out to Him concerning my pain and sorrow over recent fellowship rejections, my academics, my current financial issues/constraints, for... just help, whether it be with my state of mind (the depression and anxiety that I struggle with), my ability to concentrate/focus, my intellectual stamina, the interviewers I'll have next week, a blessing on my marriage, my financial health/stewardship, and an illumination of the paths I need to take now and moving forward. I also need to confess and repent, because I know that I am far below par in terms of my ability to hear Him. I really just want to seek Him, prayerfully. Please pray for me in all of these areas. Thank you so much, and God bless.

    I pray that God lifts your head and regulates your thoughts. I pray that God perfects everything that concerns you and that you will walk by faith and not by sight. Stand firm and speak God's word over yourself, over your marriage, over your thoughts, and over your career path. His word is a lamp unto your feet, and a light unto your path.

    If you have confessed and repented, remember that He has forgiven you. So don't allow the enemy to keep throwing your past faults in your face. You are a new creature. I pray that God silences the voices of the accuser and that you hear His voice clearly (in the Word it says, that the sheep of His pasture hear His voice and the voice of a stranger they will not follow). I also pray that God reveals to you the depth of His love for you. His love and goodness to you isn't based upon your works or if you got a gold star for the day. It cannot be earned-it is a gift. It is His pleasure to bless and keep you.

    If you seek Him diligently, He will reveal more of Himself to you. You are already here seeking His assistance and intervention on your behalf; stand firm and watch the Lord deliver you. I pray that He gives you favor for your upcoming interviews and that is He will continue to knit you and your husband closer together.

    We have had many testimonies on the weekly prayer line of those who were in terrible work situations (mentally and verbally abusive, hidden agendas, discrimination, etc) and God delivered them. He is not a respecter of persons and what He has done for others, He will do for you. I pray that He will give you the strength to stand and the daily grace you need in your current place of employment. I also pray that He will give you multiple offers of employment in an enjoyable setting with solid benefits, and opportunities for advancement.

    I pray that God will reveal all that is hidden and that whatever the item is that you need to find that you will find it today. I ask that God brings back to your memory where the item is and that He sends you there.

    Dear Sasha,

    Thank you so much for agreeing with me in my prayers-- I felt this in my spirit, and I feel lighter having seen the way you care for your brothers and sisters in Christ.

    God bless you and keep you. @Sashaa08

    @alex114, @movingforward, Just say Thank You to the Lord. Recognize all of the blessings your already have in your life and thank God for them. He will continue to bless you, but godliness with contentment is great gain. I Timothy 6:6

    Father, thank you for the clarity you give to us when we keep our minds on you. Thank you for the wisdom you freely give to us when we ask you for it. Thank you for your strength which is revealed in our weakness. Thank you for the double portion of your energy when we feel we cannot go any further -- it is then that we realize it is you who carries us. Lord we love you and we praise you in Jesus Christ's name, Amen!

    Thank you for your prayers. It’s tough, especially anytime I feel comfortable, the Lord will shake me up where I’m uncomfortable and stay the course.

    But I’m hanging on.

    @Sashaa08 and @Shimmie

    So a testimony. I have an employee that reports to me. I was out of the office and he texted me his resignation (which was fine). However, I accidentally texted him - The job market is booming! I know I will be able to get another job soon. (I thought I was texting someone else).

    I asked him not to share the information as it is personal. Well my VP offered me a RETENTION BONUS if I stay for five months.

    I was shocked and thankful, because that means for 5 months I have job security. ALso I will get a nice bonus at the end of it.

    I’m going to continue to look for another job. But I feel shocked and BLESSED.

    Thank you Lord!

    @movingforward Wow! What the devil meant for evil, God turned it around for your benefit! Definitely keep seeking, but praise the Lord that when you leave, you are leaving with a bonus!

    Hey Ladies,

    I have a prayer request as I submit my application for a masters program that will help me with getting into medical school (or another healthcare profession, depending on what God has in store for me.) and for my references to write outstanding letters of recommendation.

    Ladies, please pray for my sister. I posted (and removed) a thread about my dream last night. She and I was talking tonight and she had a dream that she had to go to the hospital (the same dream). I told her I had the same dream and asked her to make a doctor appointment. She was stubborn about not making an appointment. I reminded her that she is a single mom and my niece father will have custody if something happens to her.

    So ladies, I ask that you lift my sister up in prayer. She is doing better, but for both of us to have the same dream. I rather error on the side of caution.

    Thank you..

    Lifting you up in prayer. I pray God will give you clarity and wisdom. I also pray that He will open doors for you, make your path clear and move the hearts of your references.

    I will lift up you, your sister and family in prayer. Pray without ceasing.

    Just out of curiosity because this came to me as I read your post, has your sister taken the flu shot this season?
