Prayer For Loneliness – When you feel less than loved
Be our shelter in the midst of the storm. Walk beside us every step of the way. Lord, at times we feel so alone, crying out for attention, in desperation, looking for some sort of acknowledgement from a single soul. Remind us that you are always there, right at our side, whenever we call. No matter the time, the hour, the situation, Oh Lord, you have promised to never leave us nor forsake us. Deuteronomy Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Oh Lord, you alone know what we are going through. Sometimes we vocalize our thoughts but no one understands. There are many times we cry out to people to listen, when we need a friend, but they hardly ever take the time to show compassion.
Psalm Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Praying for strength to carry on God, let us feel the Holy Spirit as He comforts us.
Help us to realize that You are the only one we need, especially in times of trials. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. We have a friend! What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear. What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer.
Touch the hearts of the people who feel lonely today, Oh Father. The ones who are broken-hearted. Those who are bullied. The ones who have everything and everyone around them but they still feel alone. People who have lost loved ones, and have no families, the single parent. Dear God, reach out to all of them. Father, guide us as we pray for strength to fight against the feeling of loneliness and depression.
May we experience your peace, love and joy in these difficult times. Psalm He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. More Prayers.
Rejection Must Fall
Take a minute, check that secret drawer, what do you see? I have heard it said, a problem shared is half solved. I am becoming a believer of that statement. It amazes me how the devil can use the little things we hold in secret against us whilst skillfully guiding us by the hand down the road of condemnation and ultimately destruction.
Do you want to break free? Here is a testimony of one who broke the chains of slavery by saying no to secrecy. Growing up I never did fit in and the bullies at school did not fail to point that out.
My physique was trashed daily as was my personality, I never spoke about it to anyone. I never had anyone to speak to about these things as a child, so I turned to unhealthy coping methods.
One of which happened to be masturbation. I still remember the how it all begun, I was watching TV very late one night and while scrolling through the channels I stumbled on a channel displaying pornography and instead of skipping the channel I sat and watched. I was so enticed that I went back not once nor twice but night after night when I knew everyone was asleep just to watch.
It was years ago and so some parts are a bit blurry but I do remember stopping after I got saved in my second year of high school. The feeling of rejection and loneliness plagued me. It was within that same time that I began reading adult books and engaged in a relationship with a man who was about 11 years my senior. They both acted as a temporary escape from my thoughts, from the pain and the responsibilities. The man at the time was a trusted family friend that worked in the same vicinity as my school so I convinced my mother that it would make sense if I just traveled to and from school with him.
She saw no harm in it. Soon enough this man and I began engaging in sexual activities and I found myself masturbating literally almost every day. I felt worthless, undeserving, foolish. Those nights of crying and constant reflection often ended with me praying for a way out.
Eventually, God, through UCAM gave me a change in perspective, a change in friends which was exactly what I needed to end the relationship in my first semester of college. Though the relationship had ended I found myself still engaging in masturbation months after. That was Fast forward three years and some cycles later and here I am, still fighting the urges.
I condemned myself all those years, I hated myself for always doing it. My relationships all across the board were affected as I begun shutting people out. These sessions allowed me to listen, the voices in my head no were no longer louder than the voice of God and so even when I fell short, God, through Romans would constantly remind me that nothing can separate me from His love, I am reminded that I am more than a conqueror through Him who loves me. That scripture has kept me going, it restored hope that this giant could indeed be laid to rest and for that I fight daily and I am confident that one day once and for all masturbation will be a script recorded in my history.
How have I been fighting? I fought with this for a long time as I was just so used to going against my words one last time that I thought even with prayer and fasting choosing whether I obey or not would be completely up to me and I always chose wrong. But God reminded me that He died that I might live, that I might be changed from the inside out. I was honest and open about the situation, both with myself and God and confession soon became my friend.
I began trying to find the source and God revealed to me the reason behind my actions so I now knew where to start. I am currently still praying, fasting and developing an appetite for the Word. Speaking up opens a door for a prayer partner! An accountability partner!
Celebrate and learn to encourage yourself. Make conscious decisions and watch your diet, that is, the things that you allow yourself to see and listen to. Where ever and whoever you are your story may have begun differently, your giant might not even be sexual but the beautiful thing about all this is that regardless of the giant, regardless of the journey we all have one common cure; Jesus died once and for all, His blood still wash away sin stains.
He promises healing and restoration. Always remember greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world 1 John I am a giant slayer and by faith my giant of masturbation is defeated! Are you a giant slayer? Kill that giant! Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for being my Advocate. Thank You for Your unfailing never ending love towards me. I am constantly messing up, constantly wavering and always choosing to give in to the temptations, but oh how You love me!
You still leave the ninety and nine and run after a messed up me. Lord, help me to break this cycle. Help me once and for all to turn from my wicked self destructive ways.
I need strength, I need guidance, I need Your help! Grant me honesty, I am tired of faking it and not making it. Let the Spirit of truth be my sword. Cultivate in me a desire to please only You. Help me move forward today, tomorrow strengthen me to continue without looking back and the days that follow grant me grace to choose to please You even more. Equip me so I can fight this good fight of faith and lay hold of eternal life.
He is the God of the broken! Please feel free to connect with me at lisaneeburke gmail. God bless you! Share this:.
5 STONES FOR DEFEATING GIANTS IN YOUR LIFE
If you hope to break through to the passion-filled life, you need to meet your Goliath head-on. Most of us need our soul restored before we can become fully engaged in a life of passion.
All the motivational pep talks and spiritual disciplines are hollow for the person who struggles with unresolved pain from the past and unconquered problems in the present. Do you feel small compared to your present-day Goliath?
Prayer Points Against Spirit Of Rejection
Perhaps you feel too weak or inadequate to put up a fight. Giants can be intimidating, as King Saul and the army of Israel know. But God has empowered us and equipped us to bring them down. King Saul had a history of being a mighty warrior.
He should have picked up the gauntlet and confronted Goliath in the power of the Lord. Yet Saul, along with the whole army, stood there quaking in his sandals. Do you think God could have used Saul to slay the giant? But since the warrior-king was too fearful to confront Goliath, God had to look for someone else. The first step to getting past your problem to a passionate life is to confront your giant head-on.
Write down their names: guilt, envy, fear — whatever they are. Describe them. The more you get down on paper, the clearer your Goliath will be in your sight.
Those were the days where it seemed easier to ask forgiveness after the fact than to ask permission ahead of time. As Pearl S. Long before his dynamic showdown with Goliath in the valley of Elah, David had defended sheep on the hillsides of Bethlehem. He explained to Saul that watching sheep had involved facing the occasional lion or bear; when some predator attacked the sheep, he simply killed it see verses David had learned courage when nobody was around to see it.
It was his consistent integrity and commitment that prepared him to meet Goliath when that moment came. As a giant-slayer, you prepare for battle by practicing consistency in your spiritual disciples, You must spend time faithfully and privately before God, poring over His instruction manual for spiritual battle — the Word of God. God desires to train you in private through consistent personal discipline. After all, this is war. In fighting for what is rightfully yours, you will still be under enemy fire.
People have wondered why David carried five stones in his pouch when he needed only one to fell Goliath. I pray for the Lord to liberate him and to redeem him.

Deliverance sermons and prayers
He has been filled with the Holy Spirit before a number of times. God told me he is now facing destruction. Help me pray for a miracle thanks. Fill the name in the bracket and believe God waining for your testimony. The addict is an idolater who has made an idol, not with his hands, but with his heart Ezekiel Addiction is in reality a lordship problem. The addict has surrendered himself or herself to something or someone other than God.
The reason for this surrender is to meet some need or to fulfill some desire. The person turns to something or someone rather than God to meet the need or the desire. Some of the girls that looked like they had it all together would meet with Shelley and me after coming to our Bible study. Can you help? I have an eating disorder. I have an image problem. I am struggling with my self-worth and my value. Why are you insecure? You can find models who are the saddest people on the planet because of the giant of rejection.
You find incredibly smart people who are insecure because they feel like people only like them for what they know.
Or an image to try to create.
God’s Answer for Rejection and Loneliness
And the fear of rejection can lead you to some troubling places. Psychologists tell us that one of the most powerful forces in humanity is acceptance. Because they accept you. Some of you are dating somebody and you know they are not the right person for you. But is this true acceptance? Of course not. David pressed through the rejection he felt to go on and accomplish the purposes of God for his life.
He arrived at the battle from a place of true acceptance. The only thing that will help us move past the giant of rejection is to immerse ourselves in the acceptance of Christ. We need to arrive at the battle already feeling accepted. So how do we develop this confidence in his acceptance?
We do it by embracing these four big principles. We understand the miracle of our creation.
I love Jesus but I want to die: what you need to know about suicide
We clothe ourselves in acceptance when we understand we are the work of God. David knew that about himself. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, David wrote Psalm I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
We are each reverently and wonderfully made.
