God, thank you for your divine power at work in us…
God, we seek you first. We choose not to rely on our own will power and works to make us righteous. Instead, we call on you to change us from the inside. We know that you’re transforming Spirit inside us will change our outside. We will humble ourselves at your feet and then be still, knowing that the God of the Universe, our Papa, will guide us and change what needs to be changed.
Holy Spirit, help us to listen and be obedient to your voice, even when our flesh and the voice of the enemy of our souls is so loud. Drown out that noise, God. Deafen our spiritual ears to selfishness, pride, a spirit of entitlement and whatever other masters from our old lives as slaves to sin. Even when it hurts to do so, we want to walk in obedience to your voice. We know that the fruit of that obedience will be greater than we can imagine. Even if it isn’t evidenced by fruit that our eyes can see, we know that the treasures in Heaven that we build up with every ‘Yes!’ that we respond with to you, King of our hearts, lasts forever and is more valuable than all the money in the world.
We love you, Jesus. You are so good to your kids.
Father, we lift up these prayers to you:
Salt Lake City, UT
I was a Christian, who with all faith trying to delight in the Lord in my younger walk with God. I believed that Lord will grant me a life partner without me having to join any single activities events.
From age 25+ till now … at the age of 46 years old, I realized that my desire of having to settle down, having children and a family cannot seem to realize. Due to such age, bearing children are not easy and not to say about hopeful about it.
I have tried praying every morning before the sun break, when I woke up, the first thing I did was kneeling and praying this aspect of my life. 2 years or so ago before I reached my 46th birthday, I was activity in dating site and was hopeful but now, I came to recognize that it seems so hard and impossible. I felt life is meaningless now for me. I am living a alone and lonely life. My life dies together with my desires – to get married and settle down, and start a family having children.
The desires of having to find a soul mate, and set up family having children is not just a desires but rather, it is my needs. It is painful, to see neighbours’ children and that you wished that you have children of your own and so wanted to have in your heart. I remember in the age of 20+ when I was surrounded with pregnant colleagues in the company, deep inside of my heart, I wished that I am pregnant with child.
It is painful to have waited on God, believing that I do not have to join any activities and yet God is able to bring that person into your path … and only realized it after more than 20 years later that, I have to live the rest of my life by myself, alone and lonely ?? It’s like a slapped on my face and then I woke up … to realize that God didn’t do anything in this area of my life.
Very sad, that Christians friends will tell me the disadvantage of getting marriage … blah blah blah blah.
Despite some of them are happily married. They don’t seem to really see and admit that I need one compared to my non-Christian friends. Sometime, I wonder if my Christian friends lack of faith ? My non-Christian friends, even my ex-Indian colleague will say that she will pray to her god for me for a life partner. I wished my Christian Friends would say that … but I am always disappointed.
My faith dies … despite of God has done prophetic events happened … 4 times … during my walk with God.
On that day when I realized my desire is not with hope, deep in my heart, my desire dies … and my life started to die … together with my desire …
