The Cure for Anxiety

Historians will probably call our era “the age of anxiety.” Though we have it easier than our forefathers, we have more uneasiness. Inwardly we are more anxious. Callused hands were the badge of the pioneers, but a furrowed brow is the insignia of modern men and women.

Struggling After Losing Job

We’re really struggling financially, and it’s all I can think about. My wife still has a part-time job, but I lost my job a couple of months ago and I just can’t find anything. We pray and pray, but nothing happens. I’m beginning to wonder if God even cares.

Struggling After Losing Home

We lost our home and almost everything in it to a fire a few months ago, and it has been devastating. I know the Bible says we ought to give thanks in every situation, but how can God expect us to thank Him for this? I’m not sure if we’ll ever recover.

Depressed After Losing Everything

We lost almost everything we owned in a flood a few months ago, and it has really been hard on us. I know I ought to have more faith that God is going to sort it all out, but the truth is we’re depressed and almost overwhelmed. Why did God let this happen to us?

Finances: An Issue of the Heart

As much as moviegoers enjoy the gripping suspense of a startling whodunit, after the popcorn is gone and the lights come up, most will admit that they don’t like life’s real surprises, especially the kind that come in the form of an unexpected bill, a plea for a loan from a relative, or financial worries due to an accident or illness.

If God is for Us …

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once preached a sermon on the terror of the disciples during the storm on Galilee. He ended with a sharp conclusion: “I do not care what the circumstances may be, the Christian should never be agitated, the Christian should never be beside himself, the Christian should never be at his wit’s end, should never be in a condition in which he has lost. … It implies a lack of trust and confidence in Him.”

From the Desk of Billy Graham: ‘My Heart Goes Out to You’

Who looks forward to turning on the news these days? All we seem to hear about are problems. People are losing jobs and savings. A person can get depressed listening to it all, and many people are fearful.

    My heart goes to you all out there that are in a great need. Remember the Lords says ” I will not leave you or forsake you” I'm from Australia and we went through that. My husband was for a year with out a job but I never lost trust in God. Please keep you faith and don't stop praying. Bless you all.

    You email could not have come to me at a better time. God surely knows exactly what we need in our lives at all times. He sends his people to us to comfort all of our broken hearts. I will continue to pray for all people. God is so wonderful. Thank you for sending me your message. God works for all of his people.

    Moises, I'd like to encourage you. In Nov. of 2009 I lost my job as well. I'm a 50 year old gal and at that point everyone was losing their jobs. I thought, “how will I be able to find a job with the job market so saturated?” Then I remembered, from being in the word everyday, just who My God is and what He promised me. So I did what I'm responsible for. Getting as many resumes out online, in person etc. I got out of bed at 6AM every morning. I had time to do a video of my testimony, of quitting smoking and drinking 12 years prior, that was aired on palm Sunday 2010 at my church. I knew who my God is and that He would open the doors and I got a great job in less than 6 months and am making a better living than I did before. No matter what you think your barriers to getting a job are, we serve a God who can do anything He wants and open any door he wants to open for us!! Remember Ephesians 3:20-21? I'm praying for you tonight, here in Albany, NY !!

    Praying for Peace in Jerusalem.

  7. Gail says:

    Pray for peace for the families that were involved in the double murder in Black Mountain over this last weekend. One funeral held today, was very sad and hard, because a young life was taken as a result of his own behavior. That does not stop the pain the family is enduring and they all need prayers.

  8. Ted says:

    I don't normally ask for people to pray for me, but my financial situation has fallen to a point where I'm now in risk of losing my home. I tithe not expecting to be rich but as a faithful means of showing in a tangible way my trust in the controll of God in my life. I cling to Malachi 3:10 but things seem to only get worse. Please pray for me.

    I just finished reading Anne Graham Lotz book, Just Give me Jesus, what a wonderful read! Along with the Bible and Franklin and Billy's constant telling us God is the answer always, this reaffirms this truth. We have a GREAT God! We must practice what we hear from these warriors of the Lord!
