When You Feel Like Prayer Isn’t Working

When You Feel Like Prayer Isn’t Working

September 22, 2017

“Jesus said, ‘My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.’” John 5:17 (NIV)

Devotion Graphic

I looked at his mug shot and felt my heart tear in two. I had prayed for this man my entire adult life. And now he was in jail.

From the outside, Richard’s (not his real name) life looked hopeless. Alcohol. Anger. Hate. Unemployment. Failed relationships. Richard’s rollercoaster life had fewer highs and more lows as time progressed. And now he was behind bars.

Two days after Richard’s arrest, I went online and read the details of the police report. It was the time of arrest that grabbed my heart … 8:32.

Oh friend, that was no coincidence. The officer could have easily rounded the time to 8:30. But no, it was 8:32.

For 20 years, John 8:32 was my personalized license plate. Just a simple reminder of the importance of truth: “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (NIV) It’s what I consider to be my life verse. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at a digital clock on any given day, and it read 8:32. I take it as a God-wink from my Heavenly Father letting me know that He sees me and loves me.

And on this day, I just knew God was saying to me … I see him. I love him. I’ve got this. He’s not hopeless. Not by a long shot!

In 1 Kings 18:41-45, there’s a story about a prophet named Elijah. God had caused a 3-1/2-year drought in Israel because His people followed foreign gods. Miracle after miracle occurred during those years, but it’s what happened at the end of the drought that caught my attention.

Elijah sent a message to King Ahab to let him know that the 42-month dry spell was coming to an end, even though there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.

After delivering the news, Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground, and put his face between his knees.

“‘Go and look toward the sea,’ he told his servant.” (1 Kings 18:43a, NIV) (He wanted him to see if there was a cloud.)

“There’s nothing there,” (1 Kings 18:43b, NIV) the servant said upon his return.

Six times Elijah sent the servant back down the mountain to see if there was a cloud. Six times he returned reporting there was not.

Elijah said, “Go back.” (v. 43)

He observed the sky and came back to tell Elijah the news.

“A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea” (1 Kings 18:44b, NIV).

Here’s a question to ponder: Was God working the entire time the servant was running up and down Mt. Carmel, or did
God make the cloud appear all of a sudden on the seventh trek? I don’t know for sure, but I think God was working the entire time.

I’m not much of a meterologist, but I do remember a little bit about rain cycles from elementary school. Water falls from the sky into oceans, rivers and lakes. The sun heats the water, and it evaporates as water vapor. The vapor rises from the earth into the atmosphere, cools, then forms droplets called condensation.

Little droplets get together and form bigger droplets. Eventually those droplets form clouds. When the droplets get too heavy, they fall back to the earth as precipitation into oceans, rivers and lakes. Then the cycle starts all over again.

So God was working on the servant’s first run down the mountain; the servant just couldn’t see it. As Jesus said, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working” (John 5:17). Just because you can’t see God working doesn’t mean He’s not.

I don’t know what you’re praying about today, but don’t give up. God is always working … even if we can’t see it.

And Richard? He wasn’t in jail long. God is still working, and I’m still praying. I see a cloud about the size of a man’s hand.

Lord, I pray that You will open __________ eyes to see You and follow You. Even though I might not see You working, I know You are. I believe, and I will not give up hope. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
Philippians 1:6, “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (NIV)

Galatians 6:9, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (NIV)

    For many years my husband and I prayed for children. It didn’t happen. I’m way past childbearing age (post menopause), so that prayer never came to pass. I was bitter for many years. Even though I’ve come to grips with the fact that I’ll never have children or grandchildren, it is still hard. And affects me in my prayer life. I want to pray and believe and have faith that God will answer my prayers, but doubt always seems to creep in. Please pray I can get past this.

    • Karen

      It’s Karen, not Katen…..

      • Jamie

        Did you ever ask God if it was through adoption

      • Lori

        Maybe foster care or a mentoring program like big brother/sister.

      • Tonya

        Bless you. I’m so sorry. Thank you for sharing. Praying with you now Karen…

      • Carol R

        Karen I have the same issues in my prayer life. I continue to pray, but have come to feel God’s answer to me, more often than not, is no. My faith wavers and my next step is to think that I am not praying for God’s will.. The next spiral down is I am not living in the center of God’s will and He is displeased with me. I know that thinking is wrong and Satan certainly is able to use it in y life, but knowing it is wrong and getting it into my belief system and spirit is a different thing. I truly understand what you are saying.

      • Karen

        Karen, first of all, a big hug to you. I have been listening to “Nurture by Lisa Bevere”. I highly recommend it btw. She said whether we have given birth or not, this is the season to nurture God’s daughters. I want to gently say to you, perhaps there is someone who needs you to nurture them as you would your own daughter. That the pain and disappointment you have experienced, God wants to use that, through you, to minister to someone else experiencing the same thing. I want to encourage you to ask The Lord to bring you spiritual children to nurture. You have an understanding, through experience that others do not have. You have perspective that others don’t have. I encourage you to take this, with the help of the Holy Spirit and turn it to bless others. I am confident that Jesus will birth something beautiful through this in your life and other’s lives. Blessings to you and I am praying for you as seek The Lord. ❤

        Dear Karen,
        i was praying for a child before and am still quietly hoping. We have been to the necessary check-ups and both mine and my husband’s side are fine but still no baby. Instead of going further with the medical procedures and expenditure, i told God that i am grateful for both our good health and i would let God’s will be done. Someone once told me that God sees the bigger picture and there is always a reason why i’m not given a child – perhaps God is protecting me from disappointments or hurt that may ensue, perhaps i still have to work on myself, perhaps God wants to use me for a purpose which requires me to be free from the responsibilities as a mother. Surrender yourself to God’s plan for you because He does know what is the best for us.
        Jeremiah 29:11
        For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    • Leslea

      Karen, I’m not sure if bearing children is a part of Gods plan for me. I hold to the fact he gives me the desire to nuture children and He will fill that desire – one way or another. Right now, I get to me the best Auntie ever!

    • Please pray for me..I’m a single mom and I love my children but I’m having a little bit of a tough time being the mom and dad. Please pray that God gives me wisdom and strength and helps me to be obedient to Him so my children see Him through me! I hope someday to have a God Fearing man in my life as my husband too!

      • Lisa

        I’m a single mom too. Remember, God is the father to the fatherless and protector of widows. He’s the champion of single moms! Praying for you today.

        I’ve been there and yes it was hard. 2 kids and one “special needs ” but God IS Faithful. HE always makes a way. I prayed and asked God for strength and direction. HE never failed. I had to go in my closet and cry sometimes but God would renew me, refresh and strengthen me so I could continue my journey. Then finally HE sent the one HE kept for me. I have a great husband that loves me and my children. He treats them as if he was there from their birthing. God has a plan, just stay faithful He will do it in His time. I pray this helps. I don’t usually post. God bless

      This book changed my whole heart when I was on a dark place struggling with infertility. It’s not an easy read, but it gave answers for all my questions about prayer, God, and my desire for a child. The author also does a lot of segments about infertility on Lutheran Public Radio. If you look up the website or app and type in her name they should pop up. Praying for you today.

    • Kimberly

      Your comment hurt my heart, and even though I don’t know you, I am grieving with you, just as I know the Lord grieves with you too. I just wanted you to know that you’re not alone. There are many of us who have walked very difficult paths through this life. I have been broken before the Lord many times, until I have felt that the broken shards of my life are just too shattered to ever be made whole again. I have my own “Richard” in my life, someone whom I love dearly, whom for me to to breathe is to pray for him, I have endured the heartbreak of visiting him in prison many times, and I have also struggled with infertility. Hearing “No, that’s not my best for your life.” from the Lord is crushing from our perspective. It is also desperately crushing to watch those we love turn their backs on Him. I understand what it is to desperately ache for a child, struggle to conceive him, struggle to carry him to term, struggle with ongoing illnesses through out his childhood that nearly took his life multiple times, and then to have to watch him grow into adulthood, turn his back on, his family, friends and God, and begin to travel down a path that finally took him to prison. I never gave up on my son, just as I know God never gave up on either of us. I can tell you that yes, this life is just so terribly hard sometimes, but I have clung tenaciously to the Lord, and I have found the Lord is always faithful and His promises are true. His plans are just simply too great for me to comprehend right here, right now. I would be lying if I told you that I always trust Him, and never doubt, because I do doubt Him, often. Sometimes, as you confessed, I also rage at Him. When I doubt Him, I have learned to confess it, forsake it, and remind myself all over again of just who He is, and what His promises are to me. I have found Scripture to be true, it is a ongoing battle, a constant choice on my part to choose to take my eyes off of my circumstances, place them on Him, and choose faith over doubt. I am praying for you to find a balm for your grief today, in our Father’s arms. He is holding fast to you, and He won’t ever let you go.

    • Gayle S

      Me too, Karen – it still makes me sad and I don’t understand why, but have come to accept it because I know that He wants and plans the best for me. We’ve focused on children who need a kind word, tutoring, someone to believe in them – and there are many blessings from this.

      Many Richards on my prayer list and I will start looking for that cloud! L

    • Jess

      Karen,
      The heartache of infertility is so real and it rears its head in conversations about childbirth, as friends and family give birth, baby showers, etc. It is challenging at times to trust it is the best pathway when the Lord says no. I believe you honor the Lord when you are honest about the pain and ask where is He leading you through it because He has something good just ahead for you. Designed just for you with lots of love.

    This is a great reminder to have patience & remain in prayer. I’m praying for Karen & many others that who have unanswered prayers. I have prayed & prayed for my adult children to become involved in church — to finish college– to find a spouse. I know I will someday see the cloud develop & rain will come just as the devotional says. I have prayed for some of these things for 10 years. Patience…

    Pray for my husband,Jesus… we going thru a hard time, I feel so desperate, I feel alone in this situation. I need someone to talk, someone can help me please 😭😭😭 I don’t know what to do!

    • Carter

      Jessica, my heart breaks for you! I will be praying for you! I felt just the way you are describing ! I was in an abusive marriage for 24 years and I prayed and wondered if God heard me. At the end of the ordeal, God did something comparable to the Red Sea parting- see Exodus. His goal is always to bring us closer. He is always working- for ALL of us. Lay your heart before the Lord, repent of your bitterness and unbelief and allow God to hold your heart and look to Him for strength and healing for yourself. You can only do you! Seek wisdom in the Word! A book that was very helpful- The Destructive Marriage by Leslie Vernick. Know that God sees you and your unique situation. Guard your heart and hold His hand!! God bless you, sister!

      Need prayers for marriage restoration, that God touch his heart and open his eyes. I feel sometimes the same way like God don’t hear me. And wake up every single day around 3:30am or a few min before 3am. I’m tired of crying every time I cried I feel this pain in my stomach I never though to go thru something like this its really hard specially when we have 2 precious kids 😭😭😭😭😭😭

      • Gayle S

        Praying for you, Jessica, your husband, children and marriage.

      • Lord, I know you hear Jessica’s heart-cry, but she needs that affirmation. Ease the pain in her stomach. Give her delightful moments with her dear children. Open her eyes to the wonders of your creation all around her. Grant her rest in the night and awareness of your presence in the day. Bring a friend to walk alongside her during this hard season–not necessarily to fix things, but to listen to Jessica and encourage her. And as to her husband–we know that sometimes those who most resist you are those whose hearts are indeed being touched by your Spirit. Work in him, Lord, either in a sudden blaze of glory or in mercy drops that gradually soften his hard heart. Your will, Lord, in your time. Amen.

      • Barb C, FL

        Jessica, I have never posted here before, but your anguished cry for help moved my heart. I was you 27 years ago. When my husband confessed his sin to me, he left the house. I felt I had no one to share with, but God pulled me to his Word like a magnet almost immediately. I remember opening to Psalms and reading the desperation in King David’s words gave me comfort, for he never lost faith in the One who could rescue, defend and heal him. That event started my awakening and I have never looked back; Jesus has stuck with me like a brother and I am grateful everyday for His constant presence in my life. However, I, too, was broken hearted to the point that I thought my grief would kill me. I finally went to a therapist and when I told him, “I can’t eat, I can’t sleep and I cry all the time”, he said, “Bingo. You are clinically depressed”. I was so grateful! I cried and said, “thanks for putting a name on it!”. He referred me to a psychiatrist who prescribed Zoloft, with the aside, “You’re going to hate it. Don’t give up on it. It’ll take 2 weeks to stabilize, hang in there. Compare the chemicals in your brain to a car transmission: yours is about 2 quarts low and it’s not able to move the car. This medicine will refill the chemicals in your brain that have been depleted by your lack of sleep, your constant crying and lack of food (I lost 25lbs in 2 weeks, I didn’t eat for 14 days, the thought of food made me sick). I did stick with the med and I did hate it for 2 weeks, but then the miracle happened: I stopped crying so much, my clarity and focus returned and one day I actually laughed at something I heard on the radio. I knew at that moment I was on my way to healing and I knew God had been with me every step of the way. Healing was a process, and my 2 children and I all continued to deal with the trauma that is the destruction of an intact family, but a further devastation was avoided by use of some medicine that gave me my brain back. I mourned the loss for another 2 years until it became clear to me there would be no reconciliation. I continued to pray for my husband, but the nature of the prayers changed. I had placed him in God’s hands. We remained friendly and eventually I remarried. My children’s struggle continued. There is collateral damage that occurs when a marriage between 2 adults fails and the family dynamic changes, but God…
        God continues to be my rock, His Son, Jesus, my strength, and the Holy Spirit my comforter. Would I have found this relationship with Jesus had my husband not found another woman? I don’t know. All I know is that Jesus showed up in a mighty way to show me how to live in a new, different, better way. My Damascus Road experience blinded me, but when the scales fell from my eyes, I could finally see the Truth and I was a new person. I pray you will allow God to do what only He can and focus first on your relationship with Him and secondly on your role as momma to your precious children. Trust Him. Trust Him. Trust Him. Amen.

He’s out now living with us, he’s ruined our life and marriage, we are desperate to get him out of our home before he does something else. I take care of a mentally retarded son as well. He can’t find a place to live cause of his sex offender background. We keep looking to no avail.

    This is music to my ears as this very story hits home for me and my family. My brother is this particular “Richard”. His name is ROB. When my brother finally got arrested after a couple years of sinking in alcohol and his behavior was out of control and our family was at our wits end, we didn’t know what to do, only to keep praying for this bad situation to get better somehow, someway and whatever it took to get his attention. So when he got arrested after a very bad choice of behavior, we were devastated, but at the same time, we knew that GOD was at work and had to trust him. My brother was locked up for a couple months. We had no idea how this was gonna turn out, he was facing possible prison time, again praying that he didn’t get that, but also something that he would get to wake him up to where he would realize his bad choices and learn from them. To our amazement, the judge had mercy on him, and we all know know who the REAL JUDGE was, and that’s our wonderful, amazing GOD that was at work the whole time. My brother got released on probation and conditions that he HAS to abide by or there Will be no mercy next time. Although all of this has caused him to be bitter towards all of us, because he blamed family members the whole time, and the first few months he was out, but My God is and still is doing a big change in his heart. It’s little at a time, but he is starting to come around, and he is still drinking alittle, but is staying home and not making those bad behavior choices that he used to. He is even going to our family functions now. And THAT is huge. So God IS at work behind the scenes, though we didn’t SEE it, we knew he was. Please join me in prayer for him still that God does a total heart change and for him to turn towards God. He knows God. We come from a Christian home, so God is all around him because he lives with my parents during this hard time and the Devil has NO ACCESS to him. He is in a home surrounded by people that love him unconditionally and WILL NOT give up on him. Thankyou Jesus for work behind the scenes and your perfect timing. I know that one day, my brother WILL be beside me at church serving you and our family will be together again like it once was. Thankyou all who are in agreement with me and praying for my brother Rob. God bless.

    • Diane

      I am so glad that God has answered your prayers. Without all the love and family support, your brother’s story might be turning out differently. He is blessed to have all of you.

    My husband and I have a “Richard” too. Our son has never held a job more than three months, the mother of his two year old son is having to legally evict him from her home, the list goes on. In his mind it’s always somebody else or something else that’s the problem. Just last night, I went and got our grandson out of their house and he’ll be staying with us for a while. We will continue to pray for our “Richard”. Thank you for today’s verses they were right on for me! Praising Jesus for answered prayers.

And we fight the enemy and Spiritual Warfare that is over our family through Payer, and claim our Father’s Victory over it all!! Amen!
    Please Pray for us! God Bless!!

    • Bonnie Martin

      As a wife for 36 years, it has been my experience that I (the wife) MUST get out of God’s way so that HE can work in my husband’s life. It is a difficult time and it can be painful, however, please continue to persevere in prayer and in GOD’S LOVE toward your husband as you shared that you are doing, and God will be faithful to you and to your family; that is a PROMISE FROM GOD, not from me! Be at peace, be at rest, for God is at work, therefore rejoice in the blessings that are already on their way to you. You are in my prayers, B.

      • Becky

        Bonnie,

        Thank you for the reminder that I need to get out of Gods way and let Him Work in my husbands heart! I find myself often having to tell myself “He is God, I am not!” I know He loves my husband (and my 9 year old stepson who I will also lose through this separation) much more than I know and GOD will take care of them much better than I can!

    • Becky

      I will be praying for you and your family! Your strength and positive attitude are encouraging to me as I am trying to mentally prepare myself for a separation. My husband wants a divorce and although my heart is breaking I know that God will never give up on him and He will get me through this.

    • Esther, perhaps you should tweak your choice of words. Instead of asking for a “suitable career” for yourself, ask God what ministry you can do for him.

  • Bonnie Martin

    It is 5 am. Couldn’t sleep b/c husband’s back pain is so severe the bed shook with each muscle spasm. My husband and I have responded to God’s call, we know nothing is impossible with God, and yet I found myself crying, begging God for help to TRUST & BELEIVE in HIM again, I feel like such a failure. Then I opened my computer and found your encouraging words! Our marriage of 36 years is in a healing phase, it is a different time and place for us and difficult for us to understand; yet I thank you for the reminder that GOD IS STILL WORKING IN US!! My husband is a disabled veteran, and the V.A. is making life difficult in getting him pain relief. Please remember us in prayer, thank you.

    My Dad, Jack, needs a touch from God and divine healing. He has a growth on his spinal cord and two nodules on his lungs. Due to the location of the tumor they are afraid to touch it for fear of paralyzing him. He has been through every test imaginable and they say there’s nothing they can do for him. His condition will only get worse. I know all it takes is a touch from God and he can be completely healed. I know God is able to heal him and as I’ve prayed this question has been placed in my spirit, I know you know I’m able, but do you believe I will? My answer…YES, I believe you will. Please join with me in praying for my Dad, Jack. I’m praying believing he will receive complete and total healing from the top of his head to the soles of his feet! God is able and I believe He will heal my Dad.

    Please pray for my husband B, he is a very hurt person and he takes it out on me in the form of angry hurtful words. I keep praying he will have a true salvation experience and would be baptized in the holy spirit because I know that the Spirit of Truth transforms our lives. Our relationship is toxic, the enemy has his perspective very twisted. I want to see him healed as I do love him. Also please pray for my kids T, C, J, B, R,and R, the older 3 are trying to find their way and the younger 3 are subject to the issues of the adults around them. It just isn’t right… also please pray for my dad and mom, my dad has become ill over the past several years and he is sinking into a deep depression. But he has a call on his life that is not yet fulfilled. God still has a purpose for him and mom and I keep praying for God to lift him out of this pit. Also for my siblings C, M and F they are all feeling lost and need God’s help and to draw close to the Lord and be delivered from the bondage they are in. Thank you for your prayers.

I am almost to the point of giving up. Don’t understand why God answers everyone else’s prayers, but doesn’t seem to answer mine. Even as I look through my prayer journal and seeing all the unanswered prayers!!! why??

    • Lisa

      Melissa,
      I have a prodigal I have been praying for. A friend gave me a book Prayers for Prodigals 90 day of prayer for your child by James Banks. This has really been a journey for me but I see God at work in his life. It may not be in the time frame I want but I know that God has control and he will answer we have to be patient. No that is not easy, there have been many tears and sleepless nights but also glimmers of light that let me know God’s got this. Will be lifting prayers for your prodigal daughter as well.
      Peace of Christ be with you.

I know God loves them but the destructive choices continue and continue. Though I grow weary I will not stop as I do have faith He has a plan for them both.
    For my friend L. I just pray for her to find a solid, supportive group of Christian ladies (or lady) that will connect with her in her town and be there for her in her tough times.
    I pray I can be a witness to them all and show Gods’s love through these hard times.
    Dear Lord, you know their struggles and my fears/heartache for each of them. Help me to be your voice and not my own. Help me to be patient and not push for immediate change/results. Help me to leave them at your feet and lift them in prayer daily. Thank you for never leaving or foresaking Your children. Amen!

    I am praying for restoration in my marriage. 8 months of being separated due to rage issues and emotional/verbal abuse. We have been in counseling and just yesterday my husband informed me that if I do not allow him back in the house in a month, he is divorcing me. Oh how I have prayed for this man, shown him love even when he has shown me nothing but anger and disgust. I am fighting for my marriage and it looks like he’s giving up. We have a four y/o son together and my husband does not have the Lord. I pray every day that he will be given the gift of faith and a yearning to know Jesus as his Lord and savior. Initials are JPG

    • Donna

      Jesson, don’t give it to threats. Threats show he hasn’t changed. Your son deserves a strong Mother who loves him enough to raise him in a peaceful home. Don’t stop praying for your husband but don’t be pushed into something that you know isn’t going to work without him changing. You can’t change him. He is the only one that can change his behaviour. With God all things are possible but if he doesn’t have God in his life then he is doomed. Stay strong in your conviction. ❤️

My husband is so angry with him, he’s written him off. I feel left in the middle trying to love my son and husband both. My husband wants to kick him out. I’m afraid if he does, his life will get worse.

    • Tammy

      Dear Susan….I lived with that for years. I had to let go and let God with my son. The only thing I could do was let him go through the consequences of his actions and let him know my love was unconditional as I prayed for his turn around. He is now 33 and living a life that is respectable but it took a long time and God’s still working on him. I will pray for your family that God’s work will bring peace and joy to you and yours! It’s not an easy road…but keep hoping and trusting in God…he is working!!

    Great devotion!! I would like to thank Jesus for ALL he has done for me, my family, my friends & loved ones.

    Our son, Jason. He cut off all communication with us almost two years ago. We don’t know where he’s at and he won’t read our texts or emails. But this I do know….we love him very much no matter what AND God loves him even more and is at work wooing him to Himself. I can’t see what God is doing but I know He is at work in this. And that comforts our hearts! Thank You, Lord!

    What an amazing devotion! – How awesome is it that there are so many posts on here this morning! – speaking of husband’s in jail, my husband too is in jail. My husband got saved the night before he went in. Our family and I cried together, we’ve been suffering together, and missing each other terribly. We have 3 young children together which it makes it even harder to deal with. One thing is for sure, we cannot judge him, and we cannot turn our backs on him. He is a good man, good father, good husband, and a good son who made a bad choice. Amazingly enough this break and separation from what’s really important to him is exactly what he needed. Like the devotion says, my husband has experienced much more lows than highs which cause him to be angry, bitter, selfish, among many other things. I’ve noticed a change in him though. Just when I thought there was no hope left, that small cloud the size of a man’s hand appeared. My husband is at peace. His faith is growing stronger by the day. He is calm, happy, patient and understands that this is all a part of God’s plan. He knows that we serve a big God and that God is always working. A moment of heartbreak has turned into something joyful. God is so good, I cannot express it enough. In Jesus name, I know my family and I are going to be fine. I will not worry nor fret. I will be strong and courageous not weak and afraid. Amen. — God Bless ladies!

    Healing for my daughters grandfather.

  • Hello!

    I am praying for my husband, JR, that he comes to know and follow and trust the Lord with his whole heart. He believes in God, but I pray for home to come to a place where he no longer doubts, and that God continues to restore and renew his heart piece by piece. My heart’s desire is that JR gets to a place where HE leads our family spiritually. Its very hard when you and your spouse are on completely different levels spiritually, it can create lots of conflict. 🙁

    Thank you for helping me pray for JR! I know and believe God is doing a great miracle in his heart and in our family, though I can’t see it yet… I trust Him.

    Sincerely, Erica

    • Adrienne Crawford

      I’m in almost the exact situation with my husband. Him and I are on different levels spiritually. He doesn’t believe in God at all really. He used to. I don’t understand it but I need him to lead spiritually. I feel very alone and worry that we won’t ever go anywhere in life if we can’t unite spiritually. I’ll pray for JR. Please pray for my Chris.
      Love Adrienne

    Pls. pray for TJ, that the stronghold of disorder would be broken in his life. It is a serious problem. He leaves a hurricane of chaos in his wake. Please pray he would learn to clean his living spaces, put dirty clothes in the laundry basket instead of on the floor, pick up his dirty dishes, leftover food, and trash after meals, and no longer live in a state of squalor. That God would convict him of his bad habits and any associated sin, expose Satan’s lies that this is a normal and acceptable college lifestyle, and that TJ would repent and turn from his irresponsible and negligent ways. That the blinders on TJ’s eyes and in his mind would be removed, and that TJ would know the truth: disorder and decay are not from God and are not God’s best for us.
    Thank you for praying along with me!

On New Year’s Eve he was arrested and put in jail for 3 months. He attended a bible study there…and the group leader led him in a salvation prayer. He said he felt God’s power go through him. Matt is still sober…he has a job.he has a home again..he just got a puppy..he has a growing faith in Christ…God performed a miracle in him…don’t give up on those lost souls in your life!!!

  • Girley Gutierrez

    I’m praying for my boyfriend Caleb. I’m going to be breaking up with him today. We have so much individual pain that needs to healed before we continue our relationship. I know God is calling us both to Himself. I really need strength to trust God because I love Caleb so much. I know that in his timing, He will bring us back together, as the man and women He desires us to be, healed and devoted God to His heart.

    • Amy Jo

      My husband and I lived together when we were younger…had a son…broke up. I had a lot of bad feeling toward him. We bith came to know Jesus…about 2 years apart. God brought us back together and we were married in 2010. Our little family is restored…no…it’s even better than that. Just know that we have to do hard things sometimes…but let Him work in you…let Him work in Caleb…

    • Kay

      You are on my heart, friend. My ex and I ended our relationship 2 months ago after 6 years together. I know it’s the right thing, because there is so much healing that needs to happen. But it’s hard! I am believing that he is my husband, but I am also believing that will only occur once God’s healing and timing is in place. We walked too long out of timing with God. So I am praying for you and Caleb today. I am also praying for Wendell and he would experience the healing and anointing of the Holy Spirit.

  • Dustin

    Raised as a Christian now living in homosexuality. Rededicate his life to Christ and be a powerful witness for the Lord.

    • Dawn Foster

      Dear Dustin….As I continue to read these prayers, some of them literally grab hold of my heart…just like yours did as we too have been in this same place with our daughter way too long ourselves. She used to be a loud voice for Jesus, until the same thing happened to her. I’ve shared this with a few others this morning and pray it also brings you encouragement.

      My own “life verse” is Jeremiah 31:16-17. The Lord proclaims: “Keep your voice from crying and your eyes from weeping, because your endurance WILL be rewarded, declares the Lord. They WILL return from the land of their enemy! There’s hope for your future, declares the Lord. Your children WILL return home!” Not only is this a powerful PROMISE, note how many times these 2 verses say “the Lord proclaims” and “declares the Lord”. THREE! That’s powerful in itself! I came across a prayer on the internet, printed it off and have been praying it every day! Go out to Google and type in bondage breaking prayer. Just like that. In ‘Images’ you’ll see a tan colored document that says Bondage Breaking Prayer across the top and then starts with “Father, we come boldly to your throne of grace….”. Print it. Read it aloud every day. My husband and I pray it every day over our children, grandchildren and siblings. One day in prayer, I heard the voice of God say….don’t stop reading that prayer. Their names are being mentioned around the Throne Room!” We may not be able to SEE what God is doing – but again – Hebrews 11:1. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for – the evidence of things not seen.” Be encouraged mother. Bless you.

    Please pray for my husband HDL’s salvation. He does not believe in the existence of God and it is very difficult for me to share the gospel with him as he would become angry.
    We are in a very difficult marriage now. It is very heartbreaking for me to hear him say that he is different now and his feelings has changed. He seems lost and uncertain. I think he might be having midlife crisis and it is threatening our marriage. Please pray for God’s intervention to rid the Goliath in him and give me strength to fight for the survival of our marriage.

    • Adrienne Crawford

      I’ll pray for you Amy. I am in a very similar situation with my husband as well. Very bitter and hard toward God and anything I have to say. I wish he wasn’t. It feels like we’ll never get anywhere in our marriage and with our three kids. But remember God loves us and he’s for us. We just need to be faithful to him and our prayers.

      God Bless! ~ Adrienne

    • Merle Nursten

      Hi Karen, my prayer was going to be that I pray for still suffering alcoholic and addict and that they will come to know Him as their higher power (its a 12 step thing) because without God recovery is just not possible. So I pray for your daughter too. You said ‘somehow’ got pulled in, addiction is us trying to run from something, trying to fill an empty hole inside, escape reality etc. If she can find what that is, there are more than likely a few reasons that go way back to childhood, the healing process can begin. And lots lots lots of prayer. Xx

All 13 of them! One day in prayer, I heard the voice of God say….don’t stop reading that prayer.

  • Kimber

    I have never put my heart out like this as I’m doing today. BUT, we all know prayer is powerful and God is good. This devotion is a great reminder to me to keep the faith and always believe in our Father even though we don’t get an immediate response. I have been praying (many times) for my son’s salvation, Ezekiel 36:26 “I will give you a new heart with new and right desires and I will put a new spirit in you”, and for the home investment business (house flipping) that belongs to my husband and me. We have a home currently for sale that has been on the market for 6 months. I ask for prayers lifting this home up and that He will deliver a buyer. We are very discouraged in all that we have invested in at this time as we have lost more than gained. After reading this devotion, I need to keep reminding myself that God is working on these areas (son and business) and to keep the faith and not give up, that there is hope. Some days easier than others. I thank you for sharing this devoition today and thank you for your prayers!

    • Dawn Rene’

      Ms. Kimber, Not only did today’s devotion move in my heart today, so did your post. My husband and I also have wayward children and a house-flipping business. We’ve been where you are…BUT …. God continues to bless, guide and show up – sometimes at 11:59:59. I encourage you to remember that everything belongs to God. This is HIS business – therefore – the outcome is HIS. Sometimes, when we’ve tried to figure out what is taking so long, all of a sudden the buyers show up and, after hearing their story, we realize that God was just waiting for things to get in order for them. And each time, they are our brothers and sister in the Lord! It ALL comes together for HIS glory and our good. Every time. Take a deep breath. Grab hold of your faith. Give it to Him. His Word tell us He will bless the work of our hands. And…thank you for the Ezekiel 36:26 scripture. I love that! The scripture that has been my “life verse” for many years regarding our children and grandchildren is Jeremiah 31:16-17. May it also bring you peace. Bless you…bless you….bless you!

    • Dawn Foster

      Dear Lisa….we’ve been in this same place with our own children way too long ourselves. As I shared with another mother earlier, my own “life verse” is Jeremiah 31:16-17. The Lord proclaims: “Keep your voice from crying and your eyes from weeping, because your endurance WILL be rewarded, declares the Lord. They WILL return from the land of their enemy! There’s hope for your future, declares the Lord. Your children WILL return home!” Not only is this a powerful PROMISE to, I believe, mothers….note how many times these 2 verses say “the Lord proclaims” and “declares the Lord”. THREE! That’s powerful in itself! I came across a prayer on the internet, printed it off and have been praying it every day! Go out to Google and type in bondage breaking prayer. Just like that.

    Three men my mother loved.
    Joe, Joseph and Ricky.
    I just realized this morning they no longer have her to show the kindness and love towards them that she always kindly gave to them. After my mom left to be Jesus they don’t have anyone like her anymore. So maybe it’s my turn to show them the love they need.
    These men are my Dad and brothers. They know of God but they so desperately need a relationship with Him.

  • Barbara J Powell

    My brother, George. He has had a very rough time breaking addictions to many different things. He shows signs of hope one minute, and then goes right back to his old ways. He is struggling with emotional health as well. Just a series of bad life choices and events has led him down a dark path. Please pray for him to break these addictions, to seek help, to get his life and body healthy and, most importantly, to seek and have a relationship with Jesus. He so desperately needs hope and truth in his life

  • Adrienne Crawford

    I’m praying for my husband Chris and son Liam. They don’t believe in God even though they used to. They’ve become bitter and hard against the Lord and I know I cannot control the situation but I do believe God can change their hearts. I pray for them both; that Chris be the spiritual leader he needs to be. He’s already a loving, devoted father but I know that faith is what’s missing in his life. I pray for my son Liam. He’s only 14 but he’s very cold towards God. I worry about him as he’s young and impressionable. I pray that I be a better example to them and that the Lord strengthen my weaknesses and put a muzzle on my mouth that I have a hard time controlling. Lord please draw them to you. Reach them like no other can. Thank you in advance! In Jesus name!

    I’m praying for all 4 of my adult children. Not one is living for the lord. They’ve each had profound moments where God reached out in an amazing way but still they doubt. I know it’s in His hand and His timing. I give glory to God for what I know he is doing though I cannot see it.

  • Jan

    Please pray for my husband Bob. He is 1 in a million but he is not saved or is not living putting the Lord first in his life. I have prayed for 40 years for him and I know in God’s perfect timing he will become the Christian, and family spiritual leader the Lord has planned for him. Prayers for me that I would be the witness and wife God would have me be. Some days my heart just aches.

  • Liche M. Cavazos

    My niece, cc. It seems like the more I pray, the more she’s getting into darkness. She’s agnostic and practices wicken. I pray for her three beautiful children all the time as well, and her husband, to be the leader of the household. He was brought up with Christian values but he doesn’t instill the Christian life in their household. The last thing God told me to do is just love on her.

  • This was such an encouragement to read – thank you for this beautiful reassurance. I find my thoughts can often start spinning up – threatening to take me far away from the peace and rest God desires for His children. If I can’t see that He’s working, I can start to worry and try to take matters into my own hands. Your words and the verses you’ve shared are a sweet reminder – God is always working, redeeming, and doesn’t give up even when we would!

    Thank you for reminder of God ALWAYS at work even when we don’t see.
    My husband Brian back at rehab. Watching him trying to walk and move normally was too difficult. You see we have done this already in June when he had a seizure. This valley began memorial day 2016.. When he was diagnosed with brain tumor. After another surgery this past June, we did 3 weeks inpatient rehab and 1p weeks outpatient…Brian moving and walking with no cane even and riding stationary bike. August 30th after driving from PHX to ABQ and only 6 hours at home he had another seizure. Spent most of September in hospital and just moved to rehab… Again..
    A nightmare repeat of June.
    Prayer so much needed..my mustard seed gets smaller each day…my weariness grows and my husband struggles still.
    Why progress all summer to returning part time to work and better mobility to just knock Brian down to start over. Makes no sense..
    I know its not my job to understand but to trust and obey..
    Thank you for helping to storm the gates of Heaven for me and my beloved .

  • Pamela Tyrrell

    I am praying for Carly – 21 year old mom of a beautiful 4 year old girl. She thinks she’s alone – abandoned by her dad at a young age, and now her mom. Dear precious Father, she is wrong. She is never alone. You are always her father, even though she doesn’t know you. She also has my family and me, even though she really doesn’t know what that means. Let her see Lord, how precious she is and so deeply loved. Please help her to put her fears aside so that she will allow us to come along side her and walk with her.

Help them to hang onto hope that ” the cloud is forming” even though it seems hard to see God at work.

  • Cynthia wong

    My husbands salvation. Sometimes I feel like my prayers are not going anywhere.. but just like Sharon said ” just because you can’t see God working doesn’t mean he’s not ”
    I need to have faith. Even though for me it seems like the impossible, I know that for my God nothing is impossible

    Pray for my son in China. He just left the USA to teach in China. I’m worried about his health and welfare. He got addicted to drugs and alcohol when he went off to college. It was a nightmare of a time. We had to have him involuntarily committed and he got out of the hospital and hated us so much, he wouldn’t speak to us for three years. He called us out of the blue and came home for a weekend to tell us he’s taken a teaching job, teaching math and coaching a Chess team, in Wenzhou china. We have only heard from him once since he landed and that was over a month ago.

    Also pray for me. I found a lump in my breast a month ago. It isn’t a cancer, but it’s a large painful cyst that has to be surgically removed. I also start a new job teaching TESOL/GED students the same week I have to have the surgery done. I won’t get to rest and heal. I need to stay healthy once I start this job.

  • Iris

  • Anonymous

    Praying for R.- have been for over 2 1/2 years now. He has so many struggles from his past that he’s trapped in…from physical health and family struggles to depression and substance abuse. He was close to God off and on throughout his life but right now I don’t know where he stands with that either… God’s brought him out of it before, so I know it’s possible. But it’s so discouraging and disheartening to hear bad news about him and to see that there hasn’t been a change. When I read this message today, I cried at the end- not only because of how relevant the message was, but also because of Philippians 1:6. That was the verse that came to me when I first started praying for him. Galatians 6:9 also became a source of comfort for me and is now one of my favorite verses in the Bible. I pray that all these ladies will see an answer to the prayers for their loved ones. Thank you for giving us this message.

    I’ve been praying for my ex-husband for years….two years ago, I saw the cloud coming up over the sea, the size of a man’s hand….today I see a storm cloud ready to pour out. He sits in prison now, pouring out what he has learned along the way to others coming up behind him and making realistic and wise plans for life on the outside. I believe this time he will make it. Praise God for His faithfulness and for allowing me to see the answers to my prayers. Don’t give up hope….God IS working.

    My faith wavers as my fear increases. My daughter, 27 has an immune kidney disease. I pray for a miracle and on next Wednesday all labs are normal. Fear sets in because my sister 37 died last year of immune disorder. I pray both our children will heed doctor’s advice and live a long life serving Jesus, with a beautiful family. My faith wavers when I don’t get good news from the doctors and there are currently no prospects for marriage in my children’s life. I want to trust even when I don’t see.

Man has a will and when we yield to satan he will work through us. No ma’am my sister you hold your head up; GIVE IT TO GOD!!!! I know it’s not easy but you have to find the strength. I was abandoned almost two years ago so yes I know. God is working on your behalf.

    My brother, who is a good man and wonderful father to his two adult sons. But he has never allowed himself to believe and therefore has never taught his sons.

And I will continue to pray.

Pray that he develops a hunger for God and allows him to lead s d guide him.

  • Sandra Moran

    Your message hit a chord. I have been praying for adult son Keith for 15 years since he turned away from the Lord. God did for me what he did for you only my number was 11:11. Showed on clocks all the time. It was John 11:11 where Lazarus is dead and Jesus says He will raise him up. He told me Keith is in His hands and not to worry. He will resurrect him from his complacency. I would appreciate your prayers. I am 73 and would love for Keith to be back in fellowship with God before I go home. God bless you.

    This was such a faith builder for me today! I was in the middle of prayer for a part we need for our water heater to be found in our city or somewhere! We had just come home late last night from a visit to our daughter’s home (and two grandchildren) in a neighboring state, and our water heater wouldn’t heat as my husband turned it back on. I have been praying God would lead him or the company helping him to find one close and soon!
    Then I decided to read your devotional and I was thinking about the “cloud the size of a man’s fist”, as I went to the window to look at the sky. There were big clouds and long clouds, but then I noticed all over the whole sky these smaller clouds the “size of a man’s fist” . They were everywhere! I began praising God that He will answer my prayer about the part we need for our water heater soon! And then I realized there were so many small clouds that I prayed for a loved one who needs to hear from God, and I prayed for those in Houston.and Florida that need hope and encouragement and comfort from being pummeled by the hurricanes, who have lost loved ones and those who have lost everything…and I prayed for the people of Puerto Rico and all the Islands devastated by Hurricane Maria…and I lifted up the people of Mexico who have gone through the past three terrifying earthquakes demolishing buildings and lives…there were enough clouds the “size of a man’s hand” for each prayer I prayed! God is Sovereign and in control and heard each of my prayers as I earnestly call on Him.
    Thank you so much for this! It came just in time to feed my faith.
    Bless you!

    Please pray for my marriage. My husband says he is no longer “in love” with me and the sadness I feel is overwhelming.

    The Lord answers our prayers all the time. I am a true believer. The Lord heard my cries for my mom. I could not
    do what the doctors wanted me and my family to do. My mom was real sick, under hospice care. How do the doctors know when it is your time to go. When the Lord has the final say so. AMEN Holy Spirit. Prayer changes things.

    Please pray for my son, Christopher. He will have been in a coma for two years on September 29. He is the oldest of our four children. He had just finished college and was coaching and teaching when it happened. After many months of hospitals, we brought him home. I quit my job teaching to care for him. Pray he will wake up and be whole again. I love him so much.

    I am praying for my great niece Aria. She is only 2 months old. She is a miracle to say the least. She was born with enlarged ventricles. Doctors have diagnosed her with many things. She has already surpassed what they said that she would be able to do but there have been set backs. Today, she is in a Dallas hospital. We need prayer that her body will begin to function normally. We ask that God would give the doctors, specialist, and nurses wisdom to act in the best interest of Aria. In Jesus Name! Amen.

    I am trusting in Our Father’s promises and that He is still working in my family’s life and heart. I surrender my husband and our children to God. He loves them more than I ever can and will do a good work in their life for His glory. We need a complete healing and restoration of our family, but only with Christ at the center of it all so that we will have true love, peace and joy in our heart. Please pray especially for DA…only God can heal what’s broken so that we can see him smile one day. Blessings to all.

  • Barbara

    Praying for Bill to forgive me, soften his heart and open communication up, from our broken relationship.

  • Bree

    God demonstrated His grace to my when He forgave me a (grave and unforgivable, I thought) sin and turned it around into the blessing of my life. I am an unwed mother who continually see his blessing everyday and every way. I truly believe my eyes and heart would not ‘see’ these as blessings if I had not gone thru my trial. That I wouldn’t have had the capacity to be truly appreciative and grateful for His dying on the cross if I hadn’t experience such trial and His forgiveness. I was brought up in a home where “God first, then everything else follow” is not only a mantra but practically lived. So you can imagine how ‘exiled’ I felt. I knew God is forgiving but because of the severity of my sin I felt that I wasn’t worthy of immediate mercy. I thought, “surely I should be punished!”. But then God spoke to my heart, “God send His Son not to condemn the world but to save the world” and “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not of yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast”. I realized then that I have been continuing to be such an ungrateful child. How dare I not readily believing and accepting His gift! Are my standards above His? Surely not, absolutely not! It is without Him that I am completely directionless and blind to blessings. So personally came to him and received Him into my heart. Now I completely trust Him. He’s planning my every move, whether I see it or not. It may not be obvious to my eyes, and in some cases are things I dislike. But it has it’s purpose in His plan for me. My prayer request: That my son sees the blessing that he is – that he is indeed a part of God’s plan.

  • Martha

    Please pray for restoration of my relationship with my son and his family. His wife told me to leave their family alone, including my 2 oldest grandchildren. That was 5 years ago and I was given no explanation. This estrangement has affected my relationship with my other son and his wife. My youngest son and I were extremely close until the past 7 years. However, he suggested we seek counseling. Unfortunately, his wife is unwilling to participate. She does not want their daughter to have a relationship with me but will not give a reason. I hate knowing I’m a source of friction in their marriage. My son keeps saying it’s not my fault. I pray daily for the Lord to reveal my role in the estrangement with my oldest son and the deterioration in my relationship with my youngest. Both sons were saved at a young age but my oldest is in a very backslidden condition. His wife is not saved and their 2 children are 9 and 11. I pray the Lord will surround them with Christian friends and they will come to know Jesus in meaningful way.

    I don’t profess to be blameless or a perfect parent. But I don’t know what I did to cause my son to break all ties with me. It seems that when my health failed and I was unable to continue to work at a high-paying job, my oldest began to push me away. I helped them financially many times but when I ended that, he became more and more distant.

    I was a single parent for 10 years with little help from their dad and no support from my family. I raised them in church and while we didn’t have much financially, my children never went without. I remarried a wonderful Christian man whom is loved by both sons. His daughter and I have an extremely close relationship.

    By some standards, I have achieved a great deal. But there is no accomplshment greater than being a loving and nurturing mother who is loved and respected by her children.

    Please pray for my family and for physical healing.
