n Genesis 43, we see Jacob telling is sons to go to Egypt to find food because of the great famine that had struck Canaan. But, as we know, God used that famine to bring healing with Joseph and his brothers and to save the family from starvation. Time and time again, we see God using famine to bring greater things in the lives in the bible he wants to change. Is your life in a famine season and the struggle doesn't make any sense? Well, then, pour yourself into the word of God and shout out daily that Jesus is using your pain to bring huge blessings on your life. I had to wait three years of famine for the blessings to come pouring in but they were way better than I could have imaged. So, pick up your prayer, study the word of God, and ask Jesus what you can do for him. Also, be obedient to Jesus, ask him to change you to his liking, and become a prayer warrior on this site! I still face family and health problems but they sure seem lesser if I do all above.

My best friend of 3 years has always been very abrupt and negative. I didn't mind it originally because I was so similar to her. Now however, the more I listen to life 102.5, and the more I expose myself to optimistic, encouraging people, the more I realize the negative effect my once best friend is having on my life. I have tried to help her become more positive, however she is suffering from chrones disease, chronic migraines, and other diseases I don't even know about. She's so young and has such a heavy burden on her shoulders that she's trying to deal with alone. I've tried to help as best I could and tried to get her to seek professional help, however she refuses. Our conversations have been fewer and fewer and are now almost nonexistent. I have stayed with her because I feel as though I can not abandon her in her time of need, and I am one of the only friends she has. I have tried so hard to help her, but I can not. I have realized this past week that she is forcing me not to do what I want and instead to do what she wants. I have not been experiencing the things a normal high schooler should. She has also restricted my conversation regarding my church, which is something very important to me, so when she asked I don't talk about, I was extremely saddened and taken back. She is Catholic and I am a Christian so don't know exactly why she doesn't want me to talk about it. She has also been very passive aggressive about my decision to go to prom, because she doesn't want to, and she's been making me feel very guilty about my decision. I have put up with her for a long time and am not sure how much longer I can do it. I don't know what to do because I feel as though I can't leave her, but I also can't stay friends with her. I have been praying about this for a while, however am not sure what God wants me to do. Any advice anyone has would be much appreciated. Thank you for praying for me and also please pray for my friend who is going through unimaginable pain every day.

I need prayer for my marriage. My wife wants to separate. I do not. I found Marriage Helper and I need God to work with me through this program. I need to grow and be strong and it seems so difficult. I need God's strength to fight for my marriage.

I need prayers. I recently became engaged. Marriage is so important to me. The engagement was not a "He popped the question on a romantic date" kind of deal. We simply had a 'grown up' conversation and by the end of the conversation we both had agreed on getting married by the end of the year. I want to and I'm ready. I feel like I need to vent My thoughts tonight are all over the board. Is this right? Is this what God wants for me? I don't know. I've been crying this evening and I don't know why. Please keep me in your prayers.

Lord, what I wouldn't give to go back in time and fight properly for my marriage. To respect and cherish the man that you put in my life as my husband. Knowing what I know now the many things that I would do differently and the doors that were opened would have been sealed. Lord the devil knocked on our door and we/I let him right in and allowed him to rot our union, our friendship,our bond, our family, even our relationship with you. Lord I am asking for a do-over. I am praying and pleading desperately for my marriage, my husband, my family. We cannot take back the lies, the damage, the words, action and inaction but we can take steps into the light. Lord, i am asking that you move our mountains. That you quiet the lions around my husband and help him to hear your voice again, help him to know and seek you out. Bind the unholy soul ties that he has too Claudia and seal that door to never be reopened. Bind the spirits of anger, divorce, adultery, frustration and addiction, replace them with forgiveness, humility, contrition, marital devotion, honesty and faith. Renew what has been damaged Lord and give us an opportunity to enjoy the life that we had hoped for many years ago when we were young, full of hope and had so much faith in one another. Shield us from the continued role this woman wants to play in our marriage, remove her and her ill intentions, plans and deceitful ways that he is blind to. Bless us with financial abundance so that we can make better living decisions and progress with in our lives and so that my husband is not enticed but her possibilities or suggestions. Lord we cannot do this with you and some divine intervention, we still deeply love one another, but Lord its not enough we need help and that help is you. I am asking for your promise to be held that what You have out together, let no man separate. Please move in this situation. Bless our children, help us to be better parents and better spouses for them. Lord I pray all of this in your holy name, may it be in according to your will. Amen
