Turned down from another job for my criminal past as a lost kid. 15 years now I have been saved and since my last conviction (drugs and fighting). I have skills from the people that have given me a chance and 3 degrees. Discrimination is so hard on me, when you truly know that is why you did not get the position. I know it is a blessing to be discriminated against, and God has that new position out there for me. It is just it has been 15 years and people act like it was yesterday, even with all my accomplishments and education. It feels like I will always have this discrimination against me even in another 15 years. Just sucks makes me sad

I posted many times over the past months for deliverance from homosexuality and for my return to the Lord Jesus Christ (He had delivered me before but I turned away from Him in pride). I believe that the LORD has anwsered that prayer because I'm back to church (which I had stop going), I am able to read the Bible again (when I wasn't really able to before), praying kindof like I used to (which I didand witnessing to people like I did before I backslid. The urge/desire/bondage of homosexuality is gone. The reason why I am posting this prayer request is that I don't want to be decieved by my feelings or by the fact things that I am doing. I know I have to be careful with my feelings and trust in the LORD solely. The things is I just don't feel exactly the same way as I did before i backslid, but I dont feel the way I did when I was full blown backslidden. It's like the prodigal when he left the pig pen and was on his was tpo the fathers house: I know that I am no longer in the pig pen nor do I have a desire to return to it (the enemy has tried to lure me back in), but am I in the Father's house? or am I still walking to the Father's house? I know that God is not the author of confusion and tells things like it is. I know the enemy will always try to cause doubt and try to get us to question God's Word. I know that the heart is wicked and I cant go by my feelings If you would pray that the LORD would remove any confusion, doubt's unbelief from me and confirmation that I am no longer backslidden and wisdom regarding this I would appreciate it. Thanks and God bless you

I am in need of prayer warriers for myself and my children for financial, spiritual,and protection. As a single mother I am dealing with the stresses of day to day living financial and emotional support for my self and my two children. My daughter is 22 and is home now after not making it in college. and is just maintaining a job. but not getting on with her life in a good way. My son at 16 is in need of mom more but I have to split my time between the two. My ex husband is around but is not always the spiritual guide I need for my children. or the financial help. I am overwhelmed by all I need to do for myself and my children. Prayers for all aspects of my life is needed. Love to sing at praise and worship at my church. But it is a fairly new church for me and I do not have the support I had at our previous church. my children are in need of spiritual and emotional help. Direction is needed for my daughters life and confidence in who my son and daughter is in the Lord and to send them a great mentor. Besides myself.

First off, I am thankful everything the Lord has done. He is my rock, regardless of how selfish I can be, he always loves me. I am so happy for all I have, I just feel unacommplished because I can not discipline myself. I work 9 hour days, on my feet all day, and I just have no energy or focus to do or prepare for my other goals on the side. I started smoking cigarettes again and I have also been abusing my prescriptions to keep me going. I just feel messed up mentally. Please pray for me to become normal again, I am quick to anger. I just hate that I am trapped in a body I do not want to be.

Lord, thank You so much for opening my heart to the truth of Your Word. You took a broken and destructive marriage; You delivered me and revealed Yourself to me through Your Son Christ Jesus; You protected my wife during this whole time. In 7 months, we gave up our apartment, our cats, our love; we hurt our families; we hurt each other. But Lord, as You do so well; You softened her heart; You buried me in relationship with You. You gave me the joy of fellowship with You. And as You saw fit, You healed the wounds, redeemed our love, rekindled an extinguished flame, and restored our marriage. Now, the real war begins; but as always I rejoice in You with every step I take. You are my first love. Blessed be Your Holy Name above every name! May this bring You glory in Heaven and on Earth. May the world see Your light in our marriage. All the praise and thanksgiving go to You. In the name of Christ Jesus, I praise You O' Lord. Amen.
