(09/01/2000) overcoming emotional suffering
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: overcoming emotional suffering
Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God; him shalt thou
serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his
Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for
it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,
and him only shalt thou serve.
Sometimes the reason why we cannot overcome emotional
suffering is because we have other "gods", people or
things that are more important to us than God. It may
be your spouse, your job, your children. We may deny
this, but if we examine ourselves, sometimes we find
that we no longer want to live because things or
people are not the way we want them to be. Whenever we
feel that, we need to reexamine our hearts. This is
one of the greatest commandments of God.
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord
thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and
with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
We are to live our lives for only one reason, and that
is to live our lives to worship and serve God. If we
cannot come out of our depression, let us go back to
our first Love and tell Him that we want His love to
displace all other loves in our lives so that we may
truly live again according to God's purpose in our
lives and that is to worship and serve Him with all
that is in us. Only He can truly satisfy. Other people
or possessions are not perfect and will fail us but
God will never fail us.

the only blood my sister-in-law knows. pray for
strength for her. She is having a hard time.
v. depression -- ellie
I am a mother of three boys, aged 3, 5 & 7, & have had
postnatal depression since the first. This has damaged
my relationship with God, & with my family, & has left
me feeling very isolated. At the moment I'm finding it
hard to go to church as I feel unworthy. Everything
seems locked within me, & I can't break out to contact
God or to hear from Him. I need His presence & peace
in my life, & I always feel I am failing Him - almost
as if I'm not & never have been a 'real' Christian. I
had a very real conversion experience & asked Jesus
into my life about 13 years ago, but seem to have lost
that connection. Please pray that God will send His
spirit on me to renew my faith, set my heart alight, &
help me break free of whatever is weighing me down &
keeping me from God.
