Hello Guys,

I'm in desperate need of prayer to defeat the spirit of pride that overtook and nearly killed me this summer.I lost hope and stopped believing and i could'nt figure out why until i recognized it as pride,one of satans biggest weapons.



Thanks.

We will be praying for you. Spiritual warfare is no laughing matter. Adam has a strong sense of spiritual warfare when he prays, I'm sure he would not mind praying for you.

Jason,

I had no clue. I will pray for you and I believe that the enemy's deception was defeated because I can read it in your post.

Lord God, and Heavenly Father, we thank you for your mercy and your kindness. By your Son we've been redeemed and by His blood we've been cleansed. Lord, what can we boast in besides the victory of your Son? God, as we learn and grow help us to keep our path pure and focused. Thank you, for reminding us that all we have is a gift of grace and that our dependence is upon you our creator and not our works or knowledge. In our weakness you are strong. I praise you for this trial that produced a victory in Jason's life. May you be glorified through it. May Jason's testimony be strengthened and his resolve to follow you shored up. You have made Jason for this time and I pray that you give him insight in to the ways you will use him to spread the light of your glory which dwells within him. We pray this in Jesus' precious name. Amen.

Hey Jason,

For obvious reasons my praying might be a little wasteful (dishonest?), but I recognise that an overdose of pride is only going to do you harm in the long run.

My thoughts will be with you. Good luck ;)

Thanks Guys,

I feel better and believe that my victory is close at hand.I'm going through a spiritual crisis,pride problems,and job all at the same time.The lord told me that satan wants me to hate him and it became all but impossible to undergo all of those things and not turn away.

The lord threatened me with leg amputation,prison,no money or romance and asked me if i would still serve him.It hurt my feelings and made me cry,but i have to remeber that it is by grace that we are saved and Paul went through the same thing without hating him.Blessed is the man who can go all the way with Christ no matter what the cost to self.




Thanks for your prayers.

Dear brother know that I am praying, Peter was sifted like that, but Jesus was upholding him all the while, I know that I love the Lord, but that love comes from Him and not from me, that's why I am sure of it. I don't look for tests, they will come but the Lord will be in control and I am SURE that if I fail or falter He will forgive, that is not presumption that is my only hope. God bless you.
