6 Prayers to Pray When You Desperately Need God’s Help

A miracle is a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of the divine. When Christians talk about a miracle, they mean an event that is not “normal” – that is, one that should not be able to happen according to the laws of nature.

The Gospels describe 35 miracles that Jesus performed. Over half of these 35 stories are about Jesus healing sick people. Others describe Jesus casting out demons from people. On three occasions, Jesus brought dead people back to life. The rest of the stories show Jesus’ power over things – changing water into wine, feeding a great crowd with very little food, walking on water, calming a storm.

This is just a snapshot of the miracles of Jesus. These miracles help us to understand that Jesus was more than just a man. They also show us what God is like – what He cares about and what He chooses to do for His people. That includes us.

Here are six prayers for miracles:

For Healing

Often, when we pray for miracles to happen in our lives, we are also praying for healing to happen in our lives as well. We see countless examples of healing happening in Scripture through Jesus’ healing power. The same is possible in our daily lives:

Lord Jesus, heal me. Heal in me whatever You see needs healing. Heal me of whatever might separate me from you. Heal my memory, heal my heart, heal my emotions, heal my spirit, heal my body and heal my soul. Lay Your hands gently upon me and Heal me through Your love for me. Amen.

For Miracle Power

Miracle power testifies that God’s touch is always a heartbeat away. It’s important that we are conscious of God at work in our lives daily. Miracle power can happen in your life when you have faith and trust that miracles can really happen. Are you ready to unleash that miracle power?

This prayer will guide you:

Heavenly Father, I open my heart wide to receive the love of God. As I receive God’s love as universal supply, all my affairs are healed. I realize and accept the healing power of the Universe as love, and I allow the healing power that is love to penetrate my life. I readily accept the healing power of love in my life and I know that as love, God is my limitless and abundant supply made manifest. I feel the outpouring of God’s love in my body and mind. I feel God’s love in my affairs, and I know all is well.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.

For Faith to Always Believe

When we pray for miracles, it’s important that we understand that we too are miraculous beings. We wouldn’t be here without the power of God’s hand and His miraculous power being at work. When we believe in this power, all things are possible:

Jesus, Your array of miracles, a true manifestation of Your divinity draws the admiration of searching souls. Never let it be said, ‘Miracles do not exist!’ You are the living example of such actions. Bless me with the faith to always believe, to affirm the Supreme Power of Your miracles, be they of a physical or spiritual nature. Grant me the aptitude to instantly perceive the source of all supernatural occurrences. So only Your excellence shall be glorified. Jesus, my existence is a wonderful miracle.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.

For What Only God Can Do

Don’t limit your prayers only to simple situations that don’t require much divine intervention to change. Instead, make a habit of praying for big things that only God can do. For example, instead of praying to get through each workday well, pray for a bigger vision of your vocation and the courage you need to fulfill it, even if that means finding an entirely new job. Invite God to do something incredibly powerful in each situation that you bring to Him:

Lord, I am praying for what only You can do. I am praying for a miracle. I know the source from which it will come. I trust in You to send me a sign. Teach me dear Lord to know wonder. And, if You are willing, I am waiting, ready to receive my miracle today.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.

For God’s Strength to Fight Spiritual Battles

You’ll never be able to lose a battle when you fight with God’s strength flowing through you. So don’t rely on your own limited strength; pray for God to empower you to do battle in every situation and that this strength will enable you to make miracles happen:

Dear God, in the name of Jesus, we ask that You come against strongholds, demonic influences, spiritual attacks, and bondages. We believe you have the miraculous power and strength to conquer the darkest enemy, break the strongest barrier, and silence the greatest deceiver. Your name is Worthy, Glorious, Almighty in power and we claim victory today in Your name. Send Your mightiest warriors to fight this battle for us. Lord, to You the darkness shines as bright as the day. Shine Your light upon us, free us, give us peace, and snatch us back from the enemy’s grip.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.

For Miracles When We are Wrestling Inside

When something bad happens, don’t just throw out a few brief prayers for God’s help, and then move on in discouragement if the situation doesn’t change for the better soon. Instead, grab hold of God’s promises and fight to seem them unfurled. If you’re ready for miracles to happen in your life, be persistent, praying until God gives you answers. Don’t give up praying about a situation until God’s power comes into it:

Heavenly Father, I feel like giving up. Help me to remember the reason I began. Help me to see the purpose behind Your plan. Provide the necessary grace. Keep me set upon Your face, to find strength for the next step, to discover faith to keep trying and to believe that miracles are possible today and in all circumstances.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.

Are you ready for miracles to start happening in your life? You have the ability to be restored when you trust in God’s power and the decisions He is making in your life. Once you do this, the feelings of pain and despair will float away. The miracles of Jesus can change your life and those miracles start with us believing.

The Boy Died an Hour after Bathing…. All Parents Should See This

With dry drowning, water never reaches the lungs. Instead, breathing in water causes your child’s vocal chords to spasm and close up after he’s already left the pool, ocean, or lake. That shuts off his airways, making it hard to breathe. A condition called pulmonary edema is the next following.

Here, we write about a case where a ten year old child, Johnny, had foam on his mouth and had difficulties breathing. After taking him to the ER immediately, the mother was told that what happened was  ”Secondary Drowning“ . Though rare, secondary drowning can be fatal if warning symptoms are ignored. Anytime someone (children and adults alike) inhales even a small gush of water (pool, lake or ocean) it can irritate the lungs and cause swelling. Usually very little water is present in the lungs when secondary drowning occurs, but the small amount of liquid is enough to hinder the lungs ability to provide oxygen to the bloodstream.

If your child has had a near drowning, or perhaps swallowed too much water, keep a close eye out for the symptoms of secondary drowning and take them to the hospital immediately. Symptoms can even take between one and 72 hours to appear.

The symptoms are following:

  • Excess fatigue after bathing;
  • Shortness of breath after bathing;

Irritability or mood swings, for no apparent reason.

7 Signs You Are Under Spiritual Attack

There was a time when someone suffering from a heart attack had little chance of survival because he or she didn’t know what was happening and ignored the symptoms until it was too late. Medical advancements began identifying common warning signs such as discomfort and pressure in the center of the chest, pain on one or both arms, and shortness of breath. Spreading awareness of the warning signs has greatly increased the survival rate for heart attack victims.

In a similar manner, many Christians seem to be blindsided by spiritual attacks. When it comes to a spiritual attack, it is crucial to recognize the warning signs for survival:

1. Loss of spiritual desire.

The goal of any spiritual attack is to turn you away from what God wants to do in your life. That is why the first warning sign of attack is a loss of spiritual desire. We don’t live by feelings alone, but there is a difference between doing something merely out of obligation and doing something because you delight in it. When you delight in the Lord, nothing else compares. Someone passionate for God finds pleasure in the things of God.

2. Physical fatigue.

The second warning sign is physical fatigue. I know that doesn’t sound very spiritual, but keep in mind that we are created beings—spirit, soul, and body. If my body is weak, it allows things to get into my mind (soul), and that allows things to negatively affect my spirit. Many times we face our greatest attacks just before a great promotion or just after a great victory. Keep in mind when you’re going through it—an attack could very well be an indication that you are about to be promoted or just had a great victory.

 

3. “Lack attack.

The third sign that you are under attack is a “lack attack.” There are times when it seems that all of your resources dry up at the same time. The enemy attacks in this to get you to take your eyes off of God and put your eyes on money. If he can get you worrying rather than worshipping, you will start making decisions based on opportunity rather than anointing. Always remember there are two times in your life when you are especially vulnerable to temptation: when you have nothing and when you have everything. Stay close to God in both the good times and the bad times.

4. Weak prayer life.

The fourth sign that you are under spiritual attack is a weakening prayer life. “Could you not watch with Me one hour?” Jesus asked His disciples. Then He told them, “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Matt. 26:40-41).

5. Feeling overwhelmed and helpless.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by circumstances? That could be a sign that you are under attack. The word circumstance comes from two words: circum (encircle) and stance (stand). In other words, you are standing encircled by what’s going on. It doesn’t take long for feelings of being overwhelmed to lead to hopelessness. The Bible says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick” (Prov. 13:12). It also tells us, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Heb. 11:1). If the enemy can get you to lose hope, he can get you to stop living by faith.

6. Old habits and lifestyles resurface.

The sixth sign that you are under spiritual attack is that old iniquities begin to resurface in your life. What is an iniquity? Some consider iniquities to be those old habits that your soul wants to fall back on when things aren’t going your way—things that indulge the flesh. If this begins to happen, do not ignore the warning conviction of the Holy Spirit.

7. Pulling away from Godly relationships.

When old iniquities start tempting you, the next sign of spiritual attack is sure to follow: pulling away from godly relationships. Look around. Have you pulled out of relationships with people at church or with people in your small group? Are more and more of your friends carnally minded rather than spiritually minded? If so, you are stumbling around the battleground and the enemy has a target on your head.

5 Ways You May Be Blocking Your Own Blessings

Did you know that you can be your worst enemy? Your thoughts, words, attitude, and actions all have the power to block your blessings. We’re all on a spiritual journey to peace and happiness and in order for us to get there we must first learn to do what’s best for us spiritually.

Here are 5 Ways You May Be Blocking Your Own Blessings :

Negativity-

Negative thoughts can become negative words, and we all know words have power. Negative thinking can keep us captive. We can unknowingly choke our own blessings with negative thoughts.

We tend to think that if we expect the worse then we will not be as disappointed if things do not turn out the way we had hoped.

It is time to stop speaking in a way that is inconsistent with what we want. Life is better when we keep a positive mindset.

Pride-

Pride hides, but humility seeks. Humility knows it has needs and looks to the One who supplies them. 

Humility confesses weakness. It’s been quite a long journey, but I am getting better at saying to God, I am weak in “this area” and I need your power to come and rest on me here.

Prides tricks us into thinking we can do it on our own.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. – Proverbs 11:2

Holding on to the past-

Living in the past and refusing to move on only hinders growth and blessings. While you’re trying to hold on to a relationship that was never meant to be, God is trying to make room for the right one to come into your life.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. – 2 Corinthians 5:17

Guilt-

The devil’s favorite tool. He loves to remind us of our mistakes. Avoid the ‘If-Only Syndrome’. “If only I had done this… If only I hadn’t done that”.

Guilt only reminds us of who we were yesterday, not who we can be tomorrow. God forgives you, but you must learn to forgive yourself.

Fear-

Remember the old saying “You never know until you try” Sometimes we have our minds programmed for failure and we expect the worse before we even try.

Think of how many talents, dreams, goals, businesses, gifts, jobs, relationships and so much more go to the grave with people because of fear.

Fear is a roadblock stopping us from experiencing the life for which we were created to live.

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. – 2 Timothy 1:7

 

5 Signs God Is Pushing You Into Something Greater

So you’re frustrated in your job, ministry or organization.

I believe that many people leave their jobs for the wrong reasons. In fact, I think many people leave before their critical breakthrough.

And I strongly believe that people who don’t persevere never break through the wall that most limits their personal growth: themselves. Staying somewhere for five years or longer forces you to change the only thing left to change after a while: you.

So I believe there’s tremendous benefit both personally and organizationally in long term tenure.

And please know I write this from a place of bias. I’ve been working with the same core group in the same community for almost 18 years. I think long term tenure has real benefits.

So does that mean you should never leave? Is this an argument for staying 40 years in one place to get the gold watch at the end?

Not necessarily.

Before I get to my list of five signs it’s time to move on, I know you’ll notice “God told me to move on” is not on the list. Here’s why. I’ve heard that term misused more than I’ve heard it well used. Often I think people use God language to hide their own emotional issues.

I do believe we occasionally hear from God on these things (I believe I have). But God would never say anything that contradicts scripture. And usually God’s voice is echoed in the wisdom of at least a few people around you. I realize sometimes this isn’t true, but most often it is.

So here’s my list of 5 signs it’s time to move on:

1. Your spouse is telling you it’s time to go.

For those of us who are married, there will be seasons in which you and your spouse might disagree about whether it’s time to start a new assignment. But long term, a house divided against itself cannot stand, especially in ministry.  So, if after a season or two, if your spouse is telling you it’s time to go, it becomes unwise to ignore that.

2. Your circle of wise counsel is telling you to move on.

Every person should have a circle of wise counsel around them. For every leader, it’s more than advisable, it’s essential. I have a circle of friends, mentors and colleagues I trust to speak the truth to me. They often see things I’m blind to. If they’re telling you to go, listen.

3. You have lost the confidence of the leadership.

If your staff team, elder board or other leaders around you have lost confidence in you for more than a season, it’s time to go. It means your influence as a leader is gone, and without the ability to influence, you can’t lead.

4. Your passion is gone.

You can lead without passion for a season (I have had to on several occasions), but long term you can’t. Please note: the lack of passion may have little to do with your job. More than a few people have switched jobs only to discover the lack of passion is a personal issue, not a case of being in the wrong job. You might need to stick where you are and work through the tough issues. Or you might need to go see a counselor (I’ve done that). It helps. But if you’ve carefully examined your personal growth and issues and still don’t have passion at work, it could be a sign it’s time to move on.

5. Your vision has vaporized.

The most inspiring leaders are visionaries. If you no longer have a clear and compelling vision – or your vision is greater in another area you’re currently not serving in – it’s a sign it might be time to move on. Like a lack of passion, a lack of vision might actually be a sign you need to work through some significant personal growth; a job change might make the situation worse if it’s a personal malaise you’re in. But if you’re in a generally healthy space, it might be a sign it’s time to move on.

7 Bible Verses to Reassure You That God is Listening to Your Prayers

Some of us spend a lot of time wondering if God’s listening to us. If our prayers aren’t answered within our set timeframe, if we ask to hear from Him but only notice silence, we can feel as though He’s not paying attention to our needs.

But God is always listening to us, even if we don’t hear Him. More often than not when we can’t come to terms with why He hasn’t given us what we want or made it clear why we can’t have it it’s not because He’s not paying attention to our needs, He does constantly, but because we’re not paying attention to them.

How many times have you asked God for something, felt that He was punishing you by not giving it to you and then later on discovered that He was actually protecting you? How many times have you desired something but not actually prayed for it, instead hoping that God would just make it happen?

It’s crucial for us to remember that even when we don’t hear, see or feel God’s response, He is there. Losing confidence in prayer as a tool to communicate with Him will not only be detrimental to our prayer life but to our spiritual life as a whole.

If you’ve been talking to God and you’re starting to lose faith that His ears are open to your prayers or a particular request, these Bible verses below will help to refresh your memory when it comes to what you need to do to reach out to Him and have Him respond.

John 9:31 –

We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly person who does his will.

Psalm 65:2-3 –

You who answer prayer, to you all people will come. When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions.

1 John 5:14-15 –

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

Psalm 66:17-20 –

I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!

Mark 11:25 –

And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.

1 Peter 3:12 –

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

John 16:24 –

Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.

7 Signs God is Talking and You Aren’t Listening

Are you praying and not getting an answer? Take note of these signs God is sending, and you might find the answer you are looking for.

Have you ever had the feeling like you are praying and God just isn’t answering you? At the same time, everyone around you is telling you that God answers every prayer?

In the hustle and bustle of the day, it can be difficult to tell when God is talking to you. The thing to remember is he is always talking, and you just need to listen up.

Here are seven ways God could be reaching out to you in ways you never thought of before:

1. While serving others

Have you ever served someone, and while you were serving, you got the feeling that you should change something in your life? Has someone you served said something that had a life-changing impact in your life? This is God speaking to you. These people are not placed in your life by accident. He places them there.

Nothing brings more peace and happiness in this life than giving of your time to help someone else. God is always more willing to answer our prayers when you are willing to give a lending hand to help someone in need.

2. Studying your scriptures

There is an old saying that says, “When you want to talk to God, you pray. When he wants to talk to you, you read your scriptures.” God speaks through his written word, and nothing can enlighten you more than sitting down and cracking open the Bible. So, the next time you open your scriptures and a particular verse stands out to you, know that God is reaching out to you.

3. Acts of kindness from other people

Have you ever had a bad day, and at the moment you need it most someone approaches you to tell you are an awesome person? Or when everyone in your family is sick, and a friend brings over a huge pot of soup to share?

These are moments when people feel the need to reach out and help you. Anything that’s good must come from God, and it does. Many times people are prompted to reach out and help. God uses them to answer your prayers.

4. Feelings that come to your heart

Often times, when we pray, we expect a huge sign from God. However, most of the time, he speaks to us through the feelings in our heart. Have you ever prayed and felt this overwhelming peace? That is God letting you know he is there for you and is telling you yes to the things you are asking.

Other times, do you get an uncomfortable feeling? A feeling like maybe you shouldn’t do it? That is also God talking. He will never lead us to do anything wrong. That is him telling you no, don’t do that.

Sometimes no feeling can be an answer to our prayers. It could mean, “Just wait a little longer. You’re not ready quite yet.”

5. Tender mercies

“Tender mercies” are like little love notes God sends us to let us know he is there for us. This can be anything: You get a phone call from your mom at the moment you were thinking of her. You didn’t think your car was going to start and it all of sudden starts. These are the moments God is telling you he is there for you. Most the time, you are the only one who is benefited from them because it was exactly what you needed in the moment you needed it.

The best way to see these tender mercies is to pray to have the ability to recognize them when they happen. If you pray for your eyes to be opened to them they will be opened.

6. Thoughts that come to your mind

Sometimes thoughts can come to your mind to do something that you have never done before. In the end, it benefited you from doing it. It could be as simple as trying to solve a math problem for homework in a different way and you find the right answer. That is God speaking to us. This doesn’t mean every thought you have comes from God. However, if you are stumped and all of sudden you get an idea that could be God helping you out.

The best way to distinguish if it is God or not is to not worry about it. Always try to do what is good. God never prompts us to do something bad. If you strive to always do what is good, then you are listening to what God has to say.

7. Accepting God’s will above all else

Many times, God is giving a clear answer, and you are not willing to accept it. It could be that he is prompting you to go in a direction you never thought of before, and it is something you don’t necessarily want to do. However, putting your trust in God and his timing will always pay off in the end. He always has your back. He wants the best for your life. The first step to putting your faith in him is accepting his will above all else.

Photos : 9yr Old boy Marries a 62yr Old Woman, The Reason Will Shock you

A shocking incident has taken place in South Africa after a young 9-year-old schoolboy identified as Saneie Masilela married a 63-year-old woman named Helen..

According to the Daily Mirror.

Sanele Masilela, 9, married Helen Shabangu, 62, for the second time, after marrying her last year as part of a ritual.

The Mirror reports that Masilela was visited by dead ancestors who told him to wed Shabangu.

They say they married again to make it “official.”

Some in the villiage of Ximhungwe have called the whole thing “sickening.” However, the two will not live together and Sanele said he still plans to marry a woman his own age when he is older.

“I’m very happy that the boy chose me and my family support and understand that it is part of making ancestors happy,” Shabangu said. “One day Sanele would grow normally and have family of his own and get married one day, all this ceremony is for making ancestors happy. We are playing.”

Sanele’s family believes, had they not wed to please their ancestors, something bad would have happened.
