Pray for struggles with doubt


#1

I haven’t been on this forum in a long time because I felt it was becoming a very polarizing environment, but at the moment I am having terrible pangs of doubt about the immortality of the soul, and fears that when we die, we simply cease to exist. I have struggled with these doubts since I was a child. I used to become trapped in an almost endless cycle of doubt that I could never resolve one way or the other, but as I got older I decided, not so much to have faith, but to pick a side one way or another and just try to ignore doubt.

The other night, though, something triggered the doubt and it seems I can’t shake my doubt. I still do not feel reconciled to this forum, but I can only ask you, please pray for me to find some faith.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Prayed for you, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain in believing in God and the existence of eternal life. The doubt comes from the Devil. Resist.

For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7.

Billions of people believe in God; countless testimonies coming from saints and ordinary people (who experienced miracles) attest to God’s existence. Do you think they’re ALL wrong, or all of them merely fabricated their stories?


#9

There are at least some miracles, like Fatima, where there his testimony from people who were skeptical beforehand, that they saw something miraculous. But, as much as this is a doubting Thomas response, I was not there. I have never seen a miracle.

If this was something I could just going to my mind and correct, I definitely would, but I can’t. But I hope this is just a spell… maybe I just ate something that’s put me into a bad frame of mind.

(Also, although this is a little off topic, I wish they would bring back the old forum style, this new one feels like like a downgrade)

Jesus You said, "Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed;
blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
(John 20:29)

Lord please bless Kevin with such faith


#12

Yeah, like I said, I see the doubting Thomas in myself well enough.


#13

‘Doubting Thomas’ did progress to faith and faithfulness as a true apostle and follower of the Lord, Kevin, so please God, you will also.
God bless you


#15

I am currently having a really really bad time with this. Dear God please help me please help me.


#16

Dear Jesus, I pray right now for a miracle for you to help Kevin12 with his doubt. Please send Your Holy Spirit to him immediately to work in him, and free him from doubt and anxiety and help him to gain true faith in You. Jesus, Kevin12 really wants to believe in you as he keeps posting here. He is reaching out his hand, can you please grab it and hold on? And please free him from all anxiety. I have confidence you can do this, Lord. In Your name I ask this sincerely. Thank you in advance. Amen.

Blessed Mother of God, St. Joseph, St. Thomas, St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, St. Michael, St. Padre Pio, St. Francis de Sales, and all the Holy Saints and Angels, please pray very hard for Kevin. Please storm heaven for him. Thank you. Amen.

Added to my rosary intentions today
God bless

If anyone is still paying attention to this, please continue to pray for me. Every time I feel like I have almost gotten over it, the fear that death just means not existing anymore creeps back into my mind. I know it is sinful, but I wish God would send me some sort of sign. Or to give me the fortitude to stop seeking out the opinions of people who reject the immortality of the soul.


#18

May the Lord guide you…
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be…
