Please Pray For me

Please Pray For me - 02/13/16 04:50 AM


I have been feeling very discouraged for some time now.
I am the only SDA believer in my family: it is hard
to be a solitary spark without growing cold.

This site has been an anchor of fellowship,
a connection to the Church Body that I do not have
in the small town where I live.

Still I feel my faith weakening,
my hand losing the strength to hold on,
I know that God is with me, yet I feel so alone...

Please, pray for me.

I do empathize with your situation very much.
I need these same prayers myself.

Will be praying for you.

Much blessings!

Is your burden heavy
As you bear it all alone
Does the road you travel
Harbor danger yet unknown
Are you growing weary
In the struggle of it all
Jesus will help you
When on His name you call

He is always there hearing every prayer
Faithful and true
Walking by our side in His love we hide
All the day through

When you get discouraged
Just remember what to do
Reach out to Jesus
He's reaching out to you

Is the life you're living
Filled with sorrow and despair?
Does the future push you
With its weight and its care?
Are you tired and famished
Have you almost lost your way?
Jesus will help you
Just call to Him today

He is always there hearing every prayer
Faithful and true
Walking by our side in His love we hide
All the day through

When you get discouraged
Just remember what to do
Reach out to Jesus
He's reaching out to you

Never Give Up, Keep Holding On

There are days I know when you get so discouraged,
It seems that all hope is gone.
But there's only One who can give you courage
And strength to carry on.

Chorus
Never give up, Jesus is coming.
It's the darkest just before dawn.
Never give up, Jesus is coming.
Never give up, keep holding on!

Verse 2
This old world I know can't last much longer,
And sin will soon pass away.
But my faith in God simply keeps growing stronger,
For Jesus is coming some day!

Chorus
Never give up, Jesus is coming.
It's the darkest just before dawn.
Never give up, Jesus is coming.
Never give up, keep holding on!
Never give up, Jesus is coming.
It's the darkest just before dawn.
Never give up, Jesus is coming.
Never give up, keep holding on!
Never give up, keep holding on!
Keep holding on!

Song

Thank-you so much Green, Elle, and Dedication.

It is a great comfort to know that I am in your prayers, as you are all in mine.

Dedication, the songs are lovely and encouraging. I will definitely add them
to my arsenal of faith!

I thank God for each one of you:
may you walk closer to Him with each step that you take.
In Jesus blessed name.

I was also the only SDA in our family until I married by SDA spouse, however, it would be nice to see my two remaining brothers become SDAs too.

Praying for you and happy that you are a part of the Maritime family of SDAs. smile

Much appreciated Daryl!

I also have two non SDA brothers.

May they, by God's grace and persistent prayer, all accept the Good News!

Its good to hear the forum has been such a good experience for you. I am sorry to hear of the situation you face. yet I know all too well how that feels. I have a huge family, and most of them stopped speaking to me when I became a Seventh-day Adventist. It is still tough some days on that note.

I do know that many Bible greats have felt alone/isolated as you are expressing too, so it may also indicate God's drawing you closer to Him

I wish you a happy Sabbath, and will pray for you. I also do not have a church to go to in my town, I will be going into a park or forest soon with my camera to enjoy God's creation. smile

How far away are both of you from your respective nearest SDA Churches???

I am about an hour away, depending on weather and traffic conditions. I also have a terminally ill loved one I am looking after at home, so for now most times the drive is too much.

Blessings everyone.

ProdigalOne, I will keep you in my prayers as well. It's never easy walking the straight and narrow and yet God will comfort any of us in these situations.

I have been blessed to have one of my sisters join the SDA church, but, most of my family and friends cut me off because of my faith.

Wanderer, I will be praying for you as well. I will also pray for the loved one you care for.
