God Has Heard Your Prayer
by: DaveFromEvart

God has heard your prayer, as he as often heard mine, and led people to help me. I am going to suggest you read Matthew Chapter 6:1-15

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

As our Pastor has urged us, find a quiet place, outside, inside, a closet, it can be anywhere. It needs to be free from outside noise and distractions. Pray, and pray, until you feel the spirit of the Lord fill your heart. When I am really depressed, I repeat "Lord Jesus is my Salvation" over and over, along with my prayers.

Please help me pray for my self

Dear pray-er, I feel where you are at this point. It is comforting to know that God (JESUS) , made it possible for Children of the most high God to partake of His Holy Spirit. He intercedes for us & know what we can't say. That spirit will take our broken language, our confusion our blank thoughts & present then to the Father who knows, hears & understands all. Don't stop praying. Don't ever give up on GOD.Keep praying for the Spirit of God to lead & guide you.
