Not Good
« on: January 09, 2010, 11:49:18 PM »
Hello, could you please pray for me again.  I'm having a number of difficult issues right now:

* bacterial infection.  I've been sick over two weeks and am now on an anti-biotic.  I don't feel well on it. 
* spine pain.  My spine has been giving me additional problem lately.
* atheistic feelings.  I feel, much of the time, that God does not exist.  It's not a good feeling.  I tire of all this. 
Thanks

If God (Maryah, Alaha) does not exist....then may the leprosy of Gehazi cling to my bones for all generations. There, may my confidence on this matter exude a little bit to you. ;D

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

And to prove you that God exists, I'll pray so you'll see that everything's gonna be alright, as long as you trust in Jah! ;) Give praise to Jah!

I am so sorry to hear that your back still troubles you.

Lord, have mercy and ease your pain.

StGeorge you are in my unworthy prayers.

Do not doubt the existence of God.  On the contrary.  In this hour of need, turn to Him, for He waits for your request.
Ask...knowing fullwell, that He hears you.

In prayer, there is no room for doubt.

Be confident, for you are NOT alone!

I will pray for you!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Thank you for your prayers.

Please continue praying.  I finished my anti-biotic treatment, but a day or two after that, I came down with another cold.  I've been sick for about 24 days now, and my body is feeling very weak. 

Thanks.
