Guidence and Hope

Elizabeth

04.10.14
I have been feeling like I am so far away from God and that I have taken to many steps away from him that he won't let me back. I am struggling with a lot of things the past couple months and I always seem to be over reacting in a bad way. I am afraid I cant hope for anything because the things that I have gotten my hopes up high for have come crashing down and I didn't get it. I feel like I have been forgotten but I know I am just telling myself that so I can blame someone. I dont want to be like this anymore, I have been so bitter and angry but I am not sure where to go from here because I feel so far from God. I have been trying to find a new and better job because the one I have, I don't get treated very well. I feel like a big failure because I keep getting rejection letters. I am just lost and confused. Please pray that I get guidance and my hope is restored. Thank you.

Need marriage counseling in Bloomington/Normal

Anonymous

04.10.14
I need prayer for my marriage. My husband is a workaholic and his preoccupation with his work through constant messaging on his smart phone has driven a wedge between us. I have my share of issues as well; I have such an inferiority complex that I have lost faith that he really does love me and our family. I don't know how To talk to him about this because he discounts my concerns as over-reacting. He would be open to counseling if I presented it as needing his help with my own perceptions. And maybe that is all it is anyway. I long for emotional closeness. I long for hand-holding and hugs that do not involve sex. The only time he touches me is in relation to sex. Sex has become just another job for me to do at the end of the day, like brushing my teeth. From my perspective it isn't "making love" anymore. We have been married 22 years and have 3 children, ages 13, 10, and 7. Can anyone suggest a good therapist in Bloomington/Normal? Thank you.

Please pray for my dental needs

Kathleen

04.10.14
Please have your listeners pray for me to get some much needed dental care. I have health insurance, just not dental. I grew up having very soft teeth that would break easily. I could not afford dental care. As the teeth got worse, it was painful to take care of them - very painful - so I pretty much stopped. Little by little, they have all succumbed to breaking off into rotted stubs or all the way to the gums. All I have left is some small black stubs and gum/beneath gum level teeth that hurt. There is always an infection that smells horrid. I am always in pain. I have headaches. I have bad sinus infections. My grandchildren used to always ask "Mamaw, why don't you smile?" Now they simply just wish I would smile. I am not asking for money - just prayer. LOTS of prayer! I am a huge believer in the power of prayers! If everyone could please pray with me that dental help will come, then it will! This is a very expensive journey - around $4000 for pulling/cutting everything out and then making/fitting dentures. So a whole lot of prayer is going to be needed to find a dentist that can donate services. I would LOVE to get a job. I would LOVE to go back to church. I do not feel I can do either because of how people look at me. I know that is a vanity issue, but at my last job several years ago I was embarrassed when a customer complained to management about the "lady with the bad teeth" affecting her appetite. Now I have a self-consciousness issue. Please pray for me!

Feeling like God has turned his back on me

Matt

04.10.14
I have hurt my family a lot the last few years. I let sin get ahold of me and only recently truly received Christ as my Lord and Savior. I know that God wants me to change and that there are consequences for my actions, but it feels like he is turning his back on me at times. I am trying to be a better person and in some ways I am succeeding but now I am sinning in ways that were never an issue before. I am becoming a more evil person overall than I was before and I don't know why. I want to be a Christian and I want to do better but I can't do it on my own and I can't feel his help or his presence most of the time and so I despair. Please pray that he will give me strength and reveal himself to me so that I will know that he has not given up on me because I am close to giving up on me. Thank you

A dear friend, Mike, had surgery about 7 years ago to remove a tumor the procedure left him with hardly any stomach left. He is only able to eat very little, and many times can't keep anything down. As a result, he is literally starving. I don't know how he's been able to live this way. He's frail. He loves God and many of us have asked God for healing. He needs a miracle. Please pray.

Prayer

Please pray for my thrift store to be successful. I can SEE the difference when I ask for my friends to pray and when I don't. This is my only source of income and I really need it to thrive. I set the prices low to help those in the community but this means I need others who will shop and honestly, spend. Please pray that we not only help those who need help but that the Lord sends us shoppers and buyers who will help to pay the over head of the store. Personally, I really need a truck and a place to live. I've put all that I have into the store and now find myself looking for a place to lay my head. Thanks for your prayers.
