Embracing God’s Comfort And Mercy

Heavenly Father, my heart is heavy and my spirit faints within me. The challenges I face seem insurmountable, and I find myself in a state of despair. In my distress, I look to You, my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer. I pray for Your mercy to envelop me and Your comforting presence to wash over me in these troubled times.

Lord, I acknowledge my desperate need for You. I cannot bear these burdens on my own, nor navigate through these storms without Your guidance. Help me, Father, to lean not on my own understanding but to trust in You with all my heart. I long for Your divine intervention, for Your light to pierce the darkness of my despair.

Everlasting and Eternal Father, I need You every day, every hour, every minute. Pour out Your unconditional love upon my life. I ask that You bless and protect me today as I go out into this harsh and cruel world.

  8. I want to give this wonderful testimony that God saved my life. Not only mine but my whole family. We were all so sick and two of my children tested positive for COVID-19. Four of us didn’t go for the test but all six of us were sick. We believed the word and decreed and declared healing on our lives even when it felt like no help was within our reach. God is faithful and His word is true. We all got well,though we still have some symptoms that are lingering but we are out of danger. We confessed healing in the blood of the Lamb. We believed in the finished works of the cross. We are still doing that and we are on our way to complete recovery. I feel I have to give this testimony to encourage others and also me as I recover. God is faithful and His word does good for us. Greater is He that is in us than the one in the world. Psalm 91 says it all as far as protection is concerned , for those that make God Almightytheir refuge. Thank you Jesus. We believe in You and please help our unbelief where we seem to lose that grip on faith. Hold us tight and fill us with undying faith. I am grateful in Jesus Mighty Name.
