Too stubborn to pray for myself

    Hi all. I know myself well enough to know that I will not pray myself over my recent health issues. I do pray and I do pray about things regarding my own life and not just for other people. But...I don't know, I guess I feel like if I pray about my health issue...I have to face that its real and that there possibly could be something seriously wrong. I don't know if that makes sense to anybody. I am basically just being stubborn. But I will describe the issue here and ask if others could pray for me.
    I have been having abdominal pain and discomfort for a few weeks now. It mostly occurs when I am just waking up. Especially if I'm laying on my back and turn over onto either side. Its not nausea just discomfort and also a stabbing pain. Sometimes it is accompanied buy stinging in my feet. These symptoms are occurring more often for longer periods of time and are getting increasingly painful. Also a new symptom has developed in the past couple of days. I will just say that when I use the bathroom things are not the right color. Sorry. I don't want to disturb anyone.
    Now... the enemy wants me to worry about this. I've been really happy lately. And I have been working on building my relationship with God. And I start my new job this afternoon. (Yes!)
    Please pray that the enemy does not succeed in making me worry. Pray that I keep faith and trust in God. Pray that I take my stubborn tail to a doctor soon and that everything is alright.
    Im trying really hard not to think, " what if this is something serious? I am just starting a new job I don't need to get sick and lose my new job."
    Let us all cast out worry and fear in the name of Jesus because worry and fear come from the devil.
    Oh- scripture would be much appreciated if anyone knows any related to this issue.
    Thanks everyone
    Be blessed. And whenever possible be a blessing.

    It sounds like you may have kidney issues. PLEASE see a dr. ASAP. Kidneys are extremely important for bodily functions and can quickly become a very serious problem if not attended to SOON.
    It's ok to have faith in doctors too, so they can help get you better! Being stubborn also means being prideful. DON'T allow that in your life. The sooner you get checked out, the sooner you'll feel better all around.

    I never looked at it like that before. That being stubborn is prideful. Thank you for that insight.

    Your life is more important than your job. You need to go to a doctor and get this thing checked out. It may be something minor that could be easily treated, but if you wait, it could turn into something worse.

    I don't procrastinate when it comes to seeing a doctor for things that don't look right with my health. You shouldn't either.

    Please, go to a doctor. If you can, see one today. And be sure to get a doctor's excuse to give to your employer if you need to take time off from work. And make a photo copy of it for yourself. This is very important to protect your job.

    Don't worry about losing your job. God will provide.

    Romans 8:28 (NKJV) "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."

    Philippians 4:19 (NKJV) "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

    By the way, I believe it may be unlawful for an employer in the United States to terminate a person's job who may have to take some time off from work for minor health reasons. Don't quote me on that, but do look into it. See a doctor first.

    Stop worrying. It won't do any good to worry.

    Read Matthew 6:25-34.

    I will pray for you.

    Yes, you will be taken care of. Several years ago when my husband just started a new job, he developed a serious infection not even 3 days in. He had the doctor's not for needing time off and the company was very gracious. Worry about yourself first, the job will still be there!

    The most common ( very common) cause for what you describe is some sort of bacterial infection in your urinary tract, could be kidney, bladder etc. infection. To which treatment is simple antibiotics taken for a couple of weeks. Also drink plenty of water. In more severe cases the dose gets stronger and for longer time. But left unchecked you could end up hospitalized and on a high octane drip. So I'd suggest to get yourself to a doctor sooner rather than later.. There is the potential for something worse but in most likelihood it's an infection. I'm no doctor just been around the block for 67 years and raised 5 kids.

    Gracious Father, thank you that you watch over us from the smallest detail of our life to the largest pressing details of our being. I pray for your provision for this young lady's health and peace of mind and that you would impart wisdom to her doctor in diagnosing and treating her malady. May she rest in you for her health and well being as these prayers are lifted up to you in the precious Name of Jesus to the Glory of Your Name. Amen

    Don't be afraid to seek the counsel of a medical professional. There are some folks who only rely on the Lord, thinking He will solve every issue for them but remember, God has provided the gifts to medical professionals to help others so never be stubborn to allow them to assist!

    Don't worry, leave it with God, He heals through the help of His servants, doctors and nurses and in other ways too.. You are in good Hands,

    Heavenly Father, I ask that You give this one the wisdom to know when she needs to see a doctor. Help her not to worry. Continue to bless her in all the areas she is in need of. Thank You Father, In Jesus Name, Amen
