You are not a loser.

But I will pray that God has mercy on your tough times.

Please do not say this, I am upset that you call yourself a loser, it is not true!

In what way do you not know where to go?

I will pray for you to find your way.
Lord have Mercy on you.

May the Lord have mercy!

You are not a loser!  If there's anything I can help you with, please let me know.

You are not alone.


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.

I feel that way sometimes too.   Sad

Remember that Jesus Christ seems to really love and identify with the "losers" of the world - so never be afraid to call on Him when things seem really bad!  Kiss

Lord have mercy!
May the Lord of hosts open the eyes of your heart and help you see how loved and protected you are! May the Paraclete comfort you with His joyful presence. May the Mother of Light come to your aide and through her intercession fill whatever is lacking in your life. Amen Lord have mercy!

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

You are not a loser. We are all flawed human beings. May God give you strength during this tough time.

"Lord Have Mercy on Me a Sinner!"

I agree with others here; you are NOT a loser. I really do recommend that you change your profile name to something positive. Christ died for sinners, which we all are. But though we sin egregiously, we nevertheless remain the very image of God. Meditate on the fact that you are created in His image, and do not let satan to cause you to doubt your value and worth in Our Lord's eyes.

"Lord have mercy."

My friend, without God and one another we are all "losers". Go nowhere. Let God meet you where you are.

I will pray for you!

Lord have mercy.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
