Prayers Please

A lot has been happening the past couple of weeks in my life. To make a long story short, I am very depressed over the current situation in my life. I am at a loss as to how to fix this mess, because it is one I never, ever thought I would find myself in. What I believed to be true is now based on lies. I am hurting horribly, and can't figure out what went wrong to get this situation to this point.

All I can ask is for you to pray. My heart is breaking.

My dear friend,

I am so sorry that you are hurting so much - I wish I could be there and hold you and give you a hug and tell you that we are here for you...

My prayers are with you and my heart is heavy with you, and.... just and..

what ever we can do to help you mend the broken pieces, then I/we are just a click away.

"May God Bless you and keep you and may his light shine upon you"

Dear Valerie,

I am so very sorry to learn that you are suffering so greatly. You can email me anytime in absolute confidence if ever you want to 'talk', you know that.

I wish I could be there as a real-time friend to offer you support, but please take comfort from knowing that I will pray for you specifically at Mass this morning and light a candle for you.

God give you peace.

Oh Barbara - I'd love to get in an airplane and come and visit you and DEb (ukok). I really need just a warm embrace and a place to cry. Thank you so much for your love and support. I shall email you within a couple of days.

Deb - Yes, I know I can talk to you at any given time - and I will in a couple of days. I wish you could be here too - but just knowing you're thinking and praying makes all the difference to me.

Seems a few of the bloggers in the world are wrestling with some mighty big problems right now. I'm so glad you asked for prayers so I know to remember you often in mine. May I also say that the same sentiment you sent in an email to me recently should be applied to you as well. I'm here if and when you need me.

Holy Blessed Lord God Almighty, how I treasure Your name for all the power and might that it reminds me of. How I treasure your other names like El Roi, You who see all things and know all things. El Shadai, God who provides comfort and security like a mother hen covering her chicks with her wings. Adonai, Lord, I ask Your comfort and peace to enfold my beloved friend and sister, Val. Father, she is hurting and that makes me hurt. I would that I could be Your hands and enfold her in a warm embrace. Lord, You know how much I abhor lies for their poison putrifies all around. I ask God that You help Val feel the refreshing waters of Truth and how good it is to bathe in Your Truth and bask in the warmth of Your wisdom. Touch her heart, God, and heal the broken places, heat the tender flesh and leave no scars. Oh, God, how I plead for You to pour Your peace that passes all understanding all over my sister so she can rest in You. In Jesus precious name, amen.

Valerie,
I'm so sorry to hear this. I know it must be bad, for you to write this. I'll pray for you.

Lyric - what a beautiful thing for you to say, thank you.

JUles - Yes, I have noticed that, too. I'll e-mail you in a couple of days. Thanks!

Susan - I can certainly feel His strength and comfort right now.

Gina - What an absolutely beautiful prayer - it touched me deeply and profoundly. THank you, my friend.

Julana - I was a bit hesitant to leave what I wrote exactly as I wrote it, because it sounded so painful. But, I decided to just be honest and raw. Thank you.

Echoing the comments of other fellow bloggers.....especially Susan's-----"Jesus is carrying you. You are not alone." We are all lifting you up in prayer.
Quite honestly, lies and pain really suck. I know of only One Way to get through any of that.....One Way, Truth and Life, total dependence and crying out to Him.......With care and compassion, Jodi in Akron

Thank you for sharing your need and also for the encouragement you give us through your words and thoughts!

You have been to the rodeo before.

Tighten your grip and look for 8.

God has made a way before. He will again.

Oh, dear Val. I will lift you up in prayers. I am so sorry that your heart is breaking. I don't know what is wrong, but I know that He knows and that is what matters.
I was very depressed last year and I He was able to lift me up :). I know that He can lift you too - if you lean on Him and let His peace flow over you...

Lord of Heaven & Earth. I lift up my dear sister in faith to You tonight. Lord, mend her broken heart. Give her comfort and peace. You alone know that trouble of her heart. I am trusting in Your mercy. I pray in the precious name of Jesus. Amen
