Prayer for a lost soldier

by a soldier in pain

i know God Hears all crys and pleas for help and i know not all prayers can be answered, i have struggled through out my life, i struggeld in schoold and struggled in the army and still struggle to this day.

336x280:

I blame my self because i know i can be a better worker, father and husband. i have gone to many churches seeking help and to only be turned away. i feel that i am looked at as the devil and always being treated like someone that cant be helped.

i just would love to have a stable career and a stable life. i have never had a stable life, home or anything. the VA has offerd other military members homes jobs but when i ask for help i am turned away.

please pray for my families guidence through life, as i contemplate ending mine.

The Lost Soldier
by: David

Dear Friend and brother: This is our first contact, yet, I am a veteran and I have a long list of events that have caused my family and I a lot of suffering from early childhood, to the present. I retired from the Veterans Hospital 5 years ago. Two months ago I finally was given a 100% disability rating. It took 9 years to get it. He answered my prayers for these many years.

When I hear Gulf War veterans talking about their military experiences they have a deep sense of bonding to their fellow soldiers. That bond gives them a strong sense of security, protection, caring and brotherly love.....So we have not physically met,we already have bonds that He can help us become more emotionally stable.
Beginning in 1988 until 2003 I have tried to kill myself at least 7 times. On my last attempt the ER doctor told my family I was no more that 30 mins from death from hypothermia and drugs. My son came to see me, but He told me something that I have never forgotten. Dad, I have come to see you after they hospitalized you. I just want you to know I love you, but this will be the last time I will come if you try to kill yourself again. His words impaled me with the reality on how much pain and suffering I have caused them all those years.
Brother, you are very overwhelmed....MUST begin to stabilize you life to have a firm base and decide on one or two things that you can work on to start your recovery. We are NOT victims, we are survivors. With His Divine Wisdom and strength we can dos all things. Now, it is very difficult for you because everything seems overwhelming. Maybe you can make a list of all of the things you want to deal with....and decide what to work on now. Most "churches" and brothers are well meaning and do care, but honestly when I would try to share my struggles, they just had a blank look on their faces.Even my own wife could not comprehend the problems and struggles I had to deal with.
Brother please read the verses about the Apostle Paul......then see how merciful He is...he will forgive....have you learned to forgive yourself yet.......??
I strongly request that you do not isolate yourself.....you can not deal with your suffering by yourself.....feel free to share your life....I am willing to share my life events with you....I am almost guessing that your life story will closely resemble my own.
It is hard to learn to trust.....it is hard to feel free to share your life....TRUST is a difficult thing for you....step out on faith and know He will provide the wisdom and resources to get you get some productive healing. Jesus NEVER told us that a Christian will not have suffering...He told us it will be worth it.... David

failing faith...
by: USMC Granddaughter

I know what it's like to feel as if nothing you do will make what you are suffering through any better. I know what it's like to think that things can't get any worse and that all the people that receive help don't deserve it. When you see others being given what you've worked so hard trying to gain, but God is never far from us. He teaches us to be patient and to wait. That He has a plan for each of us and that it will happen on his time table, not ours. I've struggled greatly with learning to have patience when I want to know what the outcome will be. Just know this, your wife, your children, your family, and friends - they will suffer more if you leave them than if you stay strong. It takes true courage to keep your chin up and remain full of faith and trust when it all seems to fall apart. I only hope that the following verse will help you in your struggle. May God give you and yours strength to over come it all.

"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies and Your right hand will save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever, Do not forsake the works of Your hands."
- Psalms 138:7-8

Don't Give up
by: Anonymous

Don't give up! The LORD is there to everyone who has a broken heart and a broken spirit. He can take us from as low as we are and lift us up. God is always there even if humans let us down. Jesus will always be there for us. He loves us so much that he left heaven to show us the way to himself. He died so that we could have life eternally and here on earth. I know sometimes the path is rough and sometimes it doesn't feel like anyones listening but he hears our cries and he cares about us. I pray that you will find Jesus right were you are and that he will show you the love that he has for you and the Father's love for you. The time is short and he will return for his bride. I pray that you will know him deeply and intimately that even if there's no one else around he will let you know he is there for you no matter what your going thru. He loves you. I ask you to give him your heart to give him your all your life. The things in this world can't compare to his WORD of God. I pray that you'll find Jesus Christ this day! God bless you!

Have Faith
by: Anonymous

I know what's like to be so far down to the ground, but I just want you to know that God love you and he died on the cross for us.Whatever you going through this too shall pass. Just hang in there and keep looking up and don't give in to temptation. satan is a lier. He will always try to make you think that GOD don't love you or want the best for you. JUST don't lose sight of your Faith. GOD be with you.
