    Trying to get to know other believers online.

    A little bit about myself:

    I have been following the Lord since I was 17, (Im 26 now). I believe I was saved while listening to a sermon by Paul Washer. The past 9 years or so have been pretty rough. With a lot of spiritual struggles. Depression, fear, anxiety. God has really helped me to overcome a lot of that though as I have been seeking Him more for His help. As I have learned to cast my cares on Him day to day He also has been keeping me in perfect peace.

    I want more than anything to learn how to pray with greater power. As I have been asking the Lord to teach me how to pray He has been leading me to thankfulness and praise and focusing more in prayer and praying for longer periods of time. Personally holiness also and many other things. I feel as though I have only just begun to realize the power that is available to us in the true and living God of heaven and earth. Let alone access it. I really feel convinced that there is nothing that cannot be accomplished through seeking God. As I have been trying to find people to pray with at the church I go to and at other churches it has been discouraging to see how many people dont really believe that God even answers prayer. I am hoping that I can find people on this forum who believe the promises of God. Its kind of irritating also because I am trying to find the button to send a message to the people that are requesting prayer partners and I dont see it. Is there no way to send people private messages here?

    Anyways I want to encourage anyone who reads this do not give up on anything that you are praying for. I have seen God answer my specific prayers in my life and I know that He hears and answers.

    May the Lord Jesus help us to pray more and more.

    Mike

    I like Mike! Cause Mike is good on a Mike.

    When you click on a name, the link button SHOULD say "Begin a private conversation." but for whatever reason is just says "Begin a conversation"....which does not communicate the intent well. Poorly labeled.

    Hello and welcome to CF. :)

    In order to send private messages to members, you'll need to spend a little time on the forum first. Once you have I think 20 posts and have received 5 likes (or other ratings), you'll be able to initiate PMs.

    That protects members from someone joining and immediately spamming (or worse) through PM.

    Any sort of posts will do. The games area is a way to quickly increase your post count. :)

    And I'll give you a rating to start you off. :)

    I can tell by your post how faithful you are trying to be. Jesus put faithfulness alongside justice and mercy (Matthew 22:23 ). Faithfulness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit ( Galatians 5:22 ). Mother Theresa said " I do not pray for success. I ask for faithfulness.
    I accepted Jesus as my savior when I was in 5th grade so I guess I was 10 or 11, I am now 59. I wish I could say always walked in the ways of the Lord, but that's not true. But He was always there watching over me, and was waiting with open arms when I came came back. I am a humble servant in my church , as well as being an ordained Deacon Minister. ( no I don't have all the answers ) the reason I tell you this is because I also suffer from anxiety and depression. Two books that have helped me are Anxious For Nothing by Max Lucado and ironically it's the same title by John McAurthur that is very in depth scripturally. Also a fantastic book on prayer is Fresh Wind Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala.
    May the Lord bless you and keep you, The Lord make His face shine upon you,And be gracious to you, The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace ( Numbers 6:24-26
