Prayer request

Hi friends, I am not doing very well, there are a number of impasses in my life that I have been contending with that I really need God’s help and deliverance. Also, the personal problems always get worse right before I have critical exams/deadlines, or am feeling insufficient with my work responsibilities. All these things reflect Pastor Jade’s sermon on suffering. Here are my notes on “Let suffering make us better, not bitter.”

Please pray for me to have God’s blessing, strength, healing, wisdom and to hear and follow God’s voice!!

I have an image of Elijah crying bitterly to God about how he suffered and that he’s the only one left… then God showed him that there are 4000 more people who are like him (1 Kings 19:18). God is so abundant and He is sufficient. When we feel at the absolute ends, He shows up with an amazing and delightful plan, with good news (good status updates too!) and promise. Philippians 4:19 and Psalm 91:14-16.

I also thought of Jesus disappearing from the crowds when He didn’t want to be forced to become king or was fleeing from crowds who wanted to kill him.

Dear brothers and sisters, please pray for me to keep God as the focal point and to cast down anxiety, anger, worry, fear, bitterness, despair, envy, and jealousy. I know that the only way I would get through these is with God and by the support of your prayers.

Thank you all very, very much!!!!
