Seeking prayers

Hi

I could sure use some prayers right now – so I’m here asking the Lord to guide you; (who ever you might be) to pray in the Spirit and just lift me up – as I seek and trust Him to Guide me.

I prayed not very long ago that the Lord would strengthen my Faith in Him in very specific areas of my life. In a short period of time (days and hours) events and circumstances changed very drastically in my life.

Forgive my vagueness – I just NEED to know that God is in control and He does hear me.

God Bless You
Huck

“Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.” (Daniel 2:19-23 KJV)

What do YOU think?

    .This is one of my favorite poems…

    Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cried,

    Quietly, patiently, lovingly, God replied,

    I pled and I wept for a clue to my fate,

    And the Master so gently said, “Child you must wait!”

    “Wait? You say, wait!” my indignant reply.”Lord, I need answers, I need to know why!Is your hand shortened? Or have You not heard?By FAITH I have asked, and am claiming Your word.

    My future and all to which I relatehangs in the balance, and you tell me to WAIT?I’m needing a “yes” – a go ahead sign,Or even a “no” to which I can resign.

    “And Lord, you promised that if we believeWe need but to ask, and we shall receive.And Lord, I’ve been asking, and this is my cry:I’m weary of asking! I need a reply”

    Then quietly, softly, I learned of my fateAs my Master replied – “Child you must wait.”

    So, I slumped in my chair, defeated and taut

    And grumbled at God, “So I’m waiting . . . for what?”

    He seemed then to kneel and His eyes wept with mine,and He tenderly said “I could give you a sign.I could shake the heavens, and darken the sun.I could raise the dead, and cause the lame to run.

    All you seek, I could give, and how pleased you would be.You would have what you want . . . but you wouldn’t know ME.

    You’d not know the depth of my love for each saint;You’d not know the power that I give to the faint;

    You’d not learn to see through the clouds of despair;You’d not learn to trust just by knowing I am there;You’d not know the joy of resting in me.

    When darkness and silence were all you could see. You’d never experience that fullness of love

    As the peace of my Spirit descends like a dove;You’d know that I give and I save. . . (for a start),

    But you’d not know the place you have in my heart,

    Or the glow of my comfort late in the night,Or the faith that I give when you walk without sight,Or the depth that’s beyond the things of this worldOr the love, like a flower, that takes time to unfurl.

    You’d never know, should your pain quickly flee,

    That My grace, precious child, is sufficient for thee.Yes your dreams and your hopes would soon come true,But you would lose all that I’m doing and working in you!

    So, be silent, my child, and in time you will seeTHAT THE GREATEST OF GIFTS IS TO GET TO KNOW ME.And if at times my answer seems late,

    My wisest of answers is still – “PLEASE WAIT.”

    God said ‘He would never forsakeus.’ and He is not a man who can lie.Nor is He a respecter of persons. He is right there with you always, but if you aren’t feeling Him. He could be taking you throuh a new phase and maturity process in your Christian walk.
    Psalm 34:15
    “The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous And His ears are open to their cry.”

    Psalm 145:18&19
    “The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them.”

    He Maketh No Mistake

    My Father’s way may twist and turn,
    My heart may throb and ache,
    But in my soul I’m glad I know
    He maketh no mistake.

    My cherished plans may go astray,
    My hopes may fade away,
    But still I’ll trust my Lord to lead,
    For He doth know the way.

    Though night be dark and it may seem
    That day will never break,
    I’ll pin my faith, my all in Him,
    He maketh no mistake.

    There’s so much now I cannot see,
    My eyesight’s far too dim;
    But come what may, I’ll surely trust
    And leave it all to Him.

    For by and by the mist will lift
    And plain it all He’ll make;
    Through all the way, though dark to me,
    He made not one mistake.

    (A. M. Overton)

    I will keep you in prayer. Abide in Him because He is worthy of so much more then we sinful (but repentive) creatures (made of dust) but it is our love and a true relationship with us He diesires from us. God has feelings too.

      Thank you so much for those thoughts And especially your prayers Lily! – My situation is such that it’s pretty obvious (practically) as to which path I should go, but wrestling with a “Faith” based God centered outcome. I just need to make sure it’s Him and not mortal fear or desperate desire.

      I have learned over the years that God will still be God no matter which path I take. And it’s a tough lesson to get instilled into the heart. Yet necessary.

      There are at least three prayers that I believe no Christian in his right mind would desire to pray.

      “Lord teach me Patience”
      “Lord teach me Faith”
      “Lord – I am Willing to be made Willing!”

      I think in Truth – Christians who really and honestly make a true self assessment, and pray to the Lord for any of these three, is either “Insane” or In Love!

      It’s my insite that in order to be utilized in “effective” ministry – and especially in the light of the coming day’s ahead… Believers need to be praying in this venue.

      In my own mind and heart and soul – I need to know that it’s God in Control (It is) because there is a difference between Knowledge and Revelation.

      Again – God Bless You and let me know how it is going on your end.

      In Christ
