Listen, Lord, to my prayer; hear my cries for help

Listen, Lord, to my prayer; hear my cries for help

Help me God

God is lasting help and hope

Psalm 86 A Prayer for Help

Listen to me, Lord, and answer me, for I am helpless and weak. 2 Save me from death, because I am loyal to you; save me, for I am your servant and I trust in you.
God is lasting help and hope
Listen to me, Lord, and answer me, for I am helpless and weak.

Save me from death, because I am loyal to you; save me, for I am your servant and I trust in you.

You are my God, so be merciful to me; I pray to you all day long.

Make your servant glad, O Lord, because my prayers go up to you.

You are good to us and forgiving, full of constant love for all who pray to you.

Listen, Lord, to my prayer; hear my cries for help.

I call to you in times of trouble, because you answer my prayers.

There is no god like you, O Lord, not one has done what you have done.

All the nations that you have created will come and bow down to you; they will praise your greatness.

You are mighty and do wonderful things; you alone are God.

Teach me, Lord, what you want me to do, and I will obey you faithfully; teach me to serve you with complete devotion.

I will praise you with all my heart, O Lord my God; I will proclaim your greatness forever.

How great is your constant love for me! You have saved me from the grave itself.

Proud people are coming against me, O God; a cruel gang is trying to kill me— people who pay no attention to you.

But you, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God, always patient, always kind and faithful.

Turn to me and have mercy on me; strengthen me and save me, because I serve you just as my mother did.

Show me proof of your goodness, Lord; those who hate me will be ashamed when they see that you have given me comfort and help.

Shouts of Praise

Praise be to God Most High


Have your prayers been answered, or has God done something powerful in your life? Big or small, His work in you and in your situation can be a much-needed encouragement to those remaining faithful for their answered prayer.


Psalm 42:4 These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng.


Jonah 2:9 But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’”

Armor of God

The Armor of God


Ephesians Chapter 6 Verses 10-20


10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
Armor of God

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.


18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 

19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

Power of Prayer

Believe in the Power of Prayer


The Bible says the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective, yet something extraordinary happens when two or more agree together in prayer. In Matthew chapter 18 verus 19, Jesus said, “If any two of you agree touching any matter on this earth, it shall be done.

Mark 11:24
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.


John 14:13-14
Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.


James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.


Matthew 6:9-13


Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Embrace His Love and Forgiveness

All you have to do is ask for God’s forgiveness and accept it.



God has already forgiven you

by Victoria Osteen

In this day and age, the word "love" can be used in just about any context. We "love" our family or soulmate, and we also "love" a good movie or pizza. It's no wonder people get so confused about the subject of love. One thing is certain: every person on this earth was created with a deep longing to give and receive love. We develop our personal definition of love by the way we were raised and what we saw modeled in our homes growing up.

All you have to do is ask for God’s forgiveness and accept it.Whether they realize it or not, most people have a picture of God in their minds based on what their relationship was like with their natural father. If their earthly father was kind and supportive, it's easy to see God the same way. On the other hand, if their earthly father was unavailable or distant, it can be difficult to see the unconditional love that God so freely gives. 

I encounter so many people who have a misconception that God is always mad at them. When things don't go well, the first thing they say is "Well God, You did it to me again!" It's as if they think God is just waiting for them to do something wrong so that He can punish them and make their life miserable! Let me assure you right now, that is the farthest thing from the truth! God's not mad at you; He is madly in love with you!


In order to truly love your life and live the way God intends, you must understand and embrace this fundamental truth. It doesn't matter how many times you've made a mistake, it doesn't matter how many times you've blown it, God is always ready to receive you with open, loving arms. In fact, He's already forgiven you for anything you've done in the past and anything you will do in the future. 

All you have to do is ask for His forgiveness and accept it. Just imagine God in front of you right now with His arms outstretched, ready to welcome you. Don't run away from Him; run toward Him. Simply take a step of faith to embrace His love and forgiveness today!

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom

II Corinthians 3:17 As a believer in Jesus, the Spirit of the Lord dwells in me and makes me free because where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.


by Victoria Osteen


Do you feel free today? Maybe that's not the first thing you thought of when your feet hit the floor this morning, but Scripture tells us that it is for freedom that Christ has set us free. In other words, God wants you to be free today simply because He wants you to enjoy your freedom! This journey of life can be exciting because we can find new freedoms every single day.

II Corinthians 317 As a believer in Jesus, the Spirit of the Lord dwells in me and makes me free because where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.Freedom comes, first of all, when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He sets us free from the law of sin and death so we can have eternal life with Him. We don't have to live defeated, depressed, anxious, sick, upset, bitter or in the past any longer. We are free from that bondage! The more we separate ourselves from negative, self-defeating attitudes and behaviors, the more we will experience God's freedom.

Every time you release an area of your life to Him, when you choose God's Word over the temptations of the world, you are finding new freedom. Below are some biblically based "freedom" confessions for you to meditate on and declare over your life. I encourage you to look up the Scripture references and ask God to give you a deeper revelation of His freedom.

I believe that as you read and study God's Word, you will feel empowered, energized, and strengthened…you will feel free because God's Word is truth, and His Truth makes us free! I am free today because Christ has set me free! I will not allow myself to be burdened down with wrong thinking, negative attitudes, or anything that displeases God. (Galatians 5:1)


As a believer in Jesus, the Spirit of the Lord dwells in me and makes me free because where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom! (II Corinthians 3:17) I have full freedom and confidence to boldly approach the Father in prayer and worship. The Lord hears, and answers my prayers and sets me free! (Hebrews 10:19; Psalm 118:5) I am unquestionably free—free from the past, free from fear, free from worry, anxiety, depression, poverty, sickness, and lack—because Jesus has set me free indeed! (John 8:36; Galatians 3:13).

Now you are in a painful situation

Pain turns into happiness


You may be feeling depressed today, let us pray for each other’s happiness for it is in giving that we receive.

John 16: 20-24


You may be feeling depressed today, let us pray for each other’s happiness for it is in giving that we receive.
Right now you are in a painful situation
20 I can guarantee this truth: You will cry because you are sad, but the world will be happy. You will feel pain, but your pain will turn to happiness.

21 A woman has pain when her time to give birth comes. But after the child is born, she doesn’t remember the pain anymore because she’s happy that a child has been brought into the world.

22 “Now you’re in a painful situation. But I will see you again. Then you will be happy, and no one will take that happiness away from you.
23 When that day comes, you won’t ask me any more questions. I can guarantee this truth: If you ask the Father for anything in my name, he will give it to you.


24 So far you haven’t asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive so that you can be completely happy.

When that day comes

When that day comes
