Take it one day at time during the pandemic

This morning, I received an email that disturbed my heart and soul:

Back in 2016 I considered dying but I didn’t make a plan because I thought their was hope(and because of extreme stubbornness) but then in 2018 I nearly died. Now I’m thinking maybe I should have. Should have ended things before then. I should of made a plan in 2016.. strange thing is I only really considered it once.. I remember thinking things were hopeless many many times but I didn’t consider dying very much..

First of all, I thank God that you are here still. 2016 is about 5 years ago. You are not the same person! You are stronger! The pandemic has affected everyone. It has affected me. I have had plenty of sleepless nights and to this day, I worry. I also miss days of the past and I wish things were better like they were back then. Unfortunately, we cant go back. We take things and events day by day, having one foot go in front of the other. If you walk this earth, you have a purpose! To the person who left this comment; As a Christian, you have forever! Please take time to talk to someone. Talk to a family member, a friend, a colleague, etc. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

NeedTheSpirit,

I need prayers for my son who went into a diabetic coma and is currently in ICU.  What kills my wife and i is that we are about 200 miles away and driving to his University.  Please pray for healing and comfort for my wife and I.

MO


Dear Mo,

I can only imagine the pain, confusion, and dread that you are currently feeling.  I will not pretend to know what you are going through.  I will not sit here and type that everything will be alright.  I will say that at times like this, God can give you the peace and comfort that can only come from the Holy spirit.

Philippians 4:6-7 tell us…

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

God Bless You Mo and your family in this time.  We are all praying for your family.

A prayer for salvation

Received this prayer request over night. Check it out and see how you can help.

Hello! I’m not part of your community, but may I please ask for prayers?

Please pray for Grants soul to be deeply healed, so that the idols in his life and veils from his eyes are removed, so he can now come into salvation through the necessary circumstances that it takes for him to encounter Father God, speedily.

Please pray for Hough, Cynthia, and their daughter Cassandra for salvation and for the veils of the eyes of their understanding to be lifted and all the idols in their lives fully removed, so they can know, embrace, walk in the truth of Jesus and so that God’s purposes can come through their lives.

Most importantly, Praise God that all of the people in these prayers now know and walk with Jesus!

SHERYL

—————-

FIrst off, YOU ARE PART OF THIS COMMUNITY!!!  We are all brothers and sisters in Chrisrt.  What a selfless prayer request. It’s one thing to pray for yourself, it’s a different ballgame when you pray for others.

We can do all the prayers for others and their salvation but ultimately its their decision.  I will say that you should take comfort in knowing that God has heard your prayers (im sure that this isnt the first time you have prayed this) and that he is working on them.  Everyone will be afforded an opportunity to hear the good news.

I prayer the music and words from Lauren Daigle’s – I trust in you gives your peace and comfort in this time.

When the Holy Spirit uses WE ARE MESSENGERS to lift you up (letter from April)

During the WE ARE MESSENGERS concert in Macon, GA a beautiful thing took place. In between sets something caught the eye of Darren Mulligan, the lead singer of We are Messengers. Darren walked over (climbing over seats people were sitting) to hug and pray for a young lady. There was a hush on the crowd and without knowing the details, I started praying for her as well. Minutes later, Darren got on stage and continued singing as if nothing happened.

On the way home, my daughter and I were talking about that moment and were in awe on how the Holy Spirit was in that concert. What was said by Darren to that young lady was to forever be a mystery.

That was until I received a comment on my post from the concert. Turns out the lady’s name is April and this is her story.

I will 150% agree with You! I was at this concert. As a matter of fact he came off stage and prayed for me! He told me I didn’t always have to be strong, that I could let go, that is was in the Lord’s hands! What he didn’t know was I had just lost my dad the previous week. The tickets were given to me just the day before by my office manager because she had something come up. GOD knew I needed to be there! Darren spoke to me with the sweetest Irish accent, and I felt as if Jesus had his arms wrapped around me! This experience was more than you will ever get from church! And I’m proud to have had my daughter and dear friend experience this with me. Later the next day I went Darren a message on Facebook asking why of all the people at this event, Why Me? He said the Holy Spirit pointed me out to him. I will NEVER forget this moment! Watching your video still bring me chills! Cant wait for you to post more!

I have to say this was one of the most awesome thing I have ever witness. I pray April that the moments with Darren gave you the peace and comfort that can only come from Christ. In Jesus Name. Amen. PJSLB
