Prayer for the ones in sufferings


#1

I was thinking when our Lord in this world that he suffered greatly, greatly, the bitterness of his death, the sweetness of his doctrine, and the glory of his resurrection. I read that the most earnest among the adherents desire with all their souls such a test, and pray for it. to show the courage in suffering. for suffering, On the one hand fear and alarm spoke audibly in my soul; on the other the wish rose in me to show courage in suffering, I read this words in Bible this morning:
"My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing."
James 1:2-3
I thought that- that the most beloved ones by our Lord he will let them face trials for good, the trials will produces endurance; and make us strong, and humble, and mature and complete,
And death itself , which for others is the end of life, is for us merely its beginning,-the exchange of a lower for a higher happiness, a happiness less calm for one calmer and eternal- we are in God will be together for all eternity.
May God look after all His people,
Help can come only from one place, and that’s where we’ll find it.
Let’s pray together:

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.

Roselily, you speak truth.
If you have never read the autobiography of St Therese of Lisieux, “the Story of a Soul”, I think that if you read it, you may find that it suits you very well. Love, Trishie

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.

Roselily,
Beautiful. Your post contains so much truth in such a honest way. The essential elements of faith, hope and love are written in a way that should help everyone understand how much Jesus loves us.

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 among 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.

Thank you so much for that prayer and those words. I just read that, and am filled with a bubble of joy. I’ve been going through so much pain these past two weeks and even those I’ve read that passage of James many times in my life, it spoke to me so much this morning. Thank you so much for your heart. May God Bless You!

roselily, you write beautifully and honestly about the scriptures. You have gentle personality God has given you. I respect this greatly. I, myself, the Lord has given me a more Pauline personality. I suffer much. But I am so incredibly full of joy. I think many good Christians who suffer greatly could be filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit too. But, need to learn how to deal with Suffering. But God teaches us. I am more stubborn,so I seem to learn the hard way,but eventually learn. Also, suffering in Joy does not mean one does not feel everything suffering holds. Joy is not of this world. Sometime people who suffer feel guilty they are not happy. But suffering in it’s own right is nothing to do with happiness. Suffering is hard. Jesus even sweated blood and cried out in pain. But the joy comes from accepting God’s will and doing it and with the gifts given to us from the Holy Spirit we continue on our path to Heaven.

You are kind, brothers and sisters, very kind.
:blush::hug1:

we love as God Love us, that first we Love God with all our heart and soul, and second we should love one another, so once again great compassion for one another took hold of us with new strength, so great, and particularly so ardent, that it could not be simple compassion. it’s Love. thoughts began to weave and turn into some kind of gold thread that disappeared in the future, casting, at the same time, a glitter of joy to think that what happiness will be hold for us even we still in this troubled world:
The world will end, so will the suffering.
Surely, that our Lord beautiful kingdom will come, we wait for the Lord, and whatever happens then is in God’s hands.
-may God comfort His people.
we love each other and be courage, our Lord has said:“In the world you will have trouble, but be courageous-I have overcome the world!” We belong to Him, we will overcome the world too !

I read this words in Bible this morning:

“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is.”
-The First Letter of John 3:1

And in John 16:33:
"I have said this to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you face persecution. But take courage; I have conquered the world !’
-John 16:33

Praise His Holy Name !:harp:

I ask for your prayers for my salvation when I die. For my daughters to be more helpful and generous to me and for me to get into the HUD apt. I want and need to survive. And for the grace to forgive daily and become more like Jesus consistantly everyday. I am listing most of my illnesses,I want to share with you the gifts God has given me. I have many more gifts,such as suffering with my family, I live way below poverty,and much more,. So this is for the glory of God and His many gifts of suffering He has given me…

CHF, COPD,Asthma, edemia, anemic with bleeding in intestines. 3 huge growths in tummy and growing,they range from about 6" to 15" each., I have Gerd, deterioration of nervous system,which means I am suffering from horrible nerve damage in whole body,but in the spine and legs hurt the most and the doctor said I will continue deterioration the rest of my life. I have immune defeciency…my own immune system attacks itself thinking it is a virus. (Not so smart is it!LOL), I have spurs in my right foot and neck, POTS, causes bad circulations,therefore I have 30%blood circulation in my body,use to be just tummy down to toes, fybromyligia, insomnia, sleep apnea, sinustitis,poor hearing in right ear. oversensitivity to sound,light and movement. siatica,arthritis in knees and shoulder and hip and neck. blurred vision from pots. liver and kidneys show the beginning of problems…forget the terms. Heart is gettnig worse pumping on right side. Left side weak valve. I can no longer have any operations doctors told me. I pushed it once,but never again for an operation 2 yrs ago. I can walk on good days but can not walk on bad days more then 20 ft.,tremors, anxiety the doctors tell me is caused by POTS, non pots specialist think it is just plain old anxiety. It is very annoying not having a pots specialist where I live because I am so misunderstood by doctors,even if they read up on it. Each case is different.I am severe. By blood pressure can drop into comma level, but because I am use to this from pots I stay alert. a few months ago a nurse sat with me in my room and I did not know why and he said when he was done,that my blood pressure was below 40 and I should not of been aware and there I was talking fine.Migraines and headaches,
also high blood pressure when not having pots attacks. Loss of sensation in feet and legs. They tested me and it was suppose to hurt but I did not feel it. I feel like when you walk on your feet when they are sleep,that is what I always feel. I get horrible boute of vertigo. Incontinous is getting worse. I see things in global shape when pots is acting up because of inflamation of eyes. I also have inflamation of entire body. Sometimes I get so bad I have to go to ER and gets water out because medicine won’t digest through tummy walls or blood veins because being blocked by inflamation so then I have to have interveinous then.Because of pots I gained ALOT of weight. I have lost and gained 150lbs 4 times in 4 yrs…I have thyroid problems too,but the weight gain is caused by pots.between pots and chf I have had around 18 heart failures in 4 yrs. My POTS causes me terrilby painful intestinal spasms and neck,hands and feet spasms.Now I have constant fluid around my lungs…which is CHF and POTS. so you could rightly say i am in constant heart failure. I have oversensitive skin and break out with rashes. I have to use handmade soaps.
I an sure there are more illnesses. But I think that gives you an idea.
I hope I did not bore you.
Spirit

I do not care if Our Lord restores my health because I have accepted my illnesses as a gift and I can give them to Jesus with my prayers for others.
What I want for me is an apt. I have a chance for one. I go tallk to manager of apt building next week. I need this apt. and I need a vehicle because I can not push myself a mile in wheelchair to bus stop and many buses here are not handicap equiped.
I need help with getting medicines for the co pays. and for daily living things for me like poise because I am incontenant to the point pads work. I am not totally incontenant.
I am not asking for these things on caf because it is against rules. I am just saying some of my needs I need prayers for and I think specific prayers are best.
I count on all of your prayers.Everyone one of you. God Bless you all who pray for me. And please know that I include you all in my daily prayers too.
Dear dear roslily, contacting a hospital would do nothing. that is not how it works here in America. When I go to hospital it is always for my heart and they keep me there until I am stable and then I must leave,because now a days health insurance wants you out of hospital as soon as possible. it is all about greed with insurance.
I desperately need an apt and a truck to get to places. Often I can not get to somewhere to buy myself food or daily living supplies and I must depend on others which doesn’t always happen when I need it to.
I appreciate prayers. Many prayers is what I need. Thank you everyone.
Spirit
oh,roslily,you mentioned doctors. My doctor is a very good doctor.But he is not God and he can not cure my chronic illnesses. he does what he can to help me. It is mostly medicines to help me be as comfortable as possible,because there is not much more that can be done for me. For example, one of my rare illnesses is not being studied because it is so rare and therefore it is not worth it to pharmacutical companies to come up with medicines or cures for it. It costs more to research then anything. Because so few people have what I have it is not cost effective.
I just pray that the medicine I get I still can keep getting. In my pharmacy are posters up now telling customers that it is getting nearly impossible to get narcotic drugs which I need for my nerve pain. Nerves in my spine,legs,etc is the worst and most awful pain I have ever felt. I NEED pain medicine to help and even with that I still get pain but I can deal with it. But without medicine for pain I would literally die by no sleep and so much pain after a few weeks.Pain causes high blood pressure too.
So,this is how it is. If you have any questions feel free to email me. So it is not talking on here just in case because I do not want to break any caf rules.
God bless you,Spirit
