Thankful For Prayers When I Feel I Can Do Nothing More

I have so much to be grateful for, warm apartment, food, family, money to support us, pets. But still we have our own personal struggles. Things that overwhelm us. It is in these times that I am thankful for prayers.

And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”


Matthew 21:22


Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.


Mark 11:24

In these verses it seems to say that we get anything we ask for if we have enough faith. But, really is that true. Yes, we need faith that God will always provide, and He does want us to talk to Him, to converse with Him. But what happens when we do not get what we ask for?

Thankful for prayers


Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

1 John 2:15-27

Sometimes what we want, what we desire is us loving this world more than the Lord. God wants us to always put Him and our treasures in Heaven first. So, I am thankful for prayers. Prayers to talk to my Lord about anything. In this time I can get to know Him, He can teach me and shape my desires to match His. When I start to align with God my prayerful, faithful desires will be met in a way that I know it is only Him.

Right now I am struggling to get healthy, to undo the damage I have done to my body. When I attempt to do this it causes much conflict in the family. I am grateful that I have my all knowing Heavenly Father to help me. I am so overwhelmed with His patience and forgiveness. I am thankful for prayers of family and friends as I battle this. I know with God’s strength He will help all involved as I stick with Him and what He shows me what I need to do. Please be praying for my daughter and that I do not cave in to my worry for her. That I know God has her and He is working on her too. Thank you!
