Dear God, please help her friend be better in whatever is happening. Bless her, blow your breath of life into her spirit, heal her. Let her be well, for her life is entrusted to you...and if she has not been saved yet, save her.

In the almighty name of Jesus I pray in,

Thank you for praying for my friend. I've been witnessing to her, I'm praying for her salvation. Thank you, thank you so much for praying for her. She really needs God, but doesn't realize that yet.

I've been trying in this area myself, and it's really painful watching someone you love there, hurt, but there's little you can do about it.

But worry not, when you are led by the Spirit, it will work wonders. Just cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, lift your hands and just look at Christ, he IS hope. Looking at Hope himself won't just give you hope.

In fact it says in Numbers,

Numbers 21:9
So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.

The bronze serpent is a picture of Jesus. Now just looking at his representation can get you saved, what more Christ HIMSELF?

There is NO WAY you can miss the blessings when you just look at him and believe. The blessings will outrun you, sweep you away and drown you in happiness.

When you are at the utmost bottom in your life, career, school and family, you feel so alone, all your finances gone, all your friends gone, nothing works better than having a single person come up to you and say:''Come with me now, I will provide, I will take care of all your troubles and cares.'' Nothing fills the heart more with the overwhelming sense of Joy and relief when you realise that you don't have to worry anymore.

Similarly, in the case of God himself, after he has done so much for us, he gave us his son! I've never been a parent before, but to give up something that is so dear and precious such as a person (and we know how much people meant to Him, how much more his own Son?) He gave Jesus to us! That's why just imagine how much it would hurt our Christ to not look at him, when he's SO powerful! So willing, SO able to help, and we refuse our saviour. It's painful, to just look at the problem and focus on anger, frustrations THEN cry out to God not in faith but anger, that how he does not exist.

Imagine looking at this scene, looking at the loved one ignoring you, so painful on the inside, and yet refusing to acknowledge your prescence. It hurts right? God feels the same! Therefore he will NEVER overlook your problem if only you come to Him, because nobody knows better than Himself, what you are going through. Just pour out your thoughts to him. Seek and you shall receive, is the promise of the New Covenant, He says 'I Will' and not 'You shall', there is no more 12 commandments we have to fulfill, no more conditions for us to meet. God is Here, God is Now, he is a very present God.

Jehovah Shammah is the God who will take care of your needs at every single moment of your life, so don't you worry! God doesn't just take care of your needs when you look at him, but when you hold your sight on him, he will continually prosper you! To have light in the house you need to keep that plug in the socket when you want electricity, and it's not that the electricity isn't running in that house, it's that you didn't plug it in! So find a plug, if you don't know how, ask God, call the electricity provider!

Sorry, I just get so carried away. Oh boy I'm SO glad to have found Christ!

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

The 23rd psalm, for your friend.

Lord, Today I ask that you help this friend, open her eyes of her heart and flood them with your holy spirit. Please, shield and protect her friend from Satan's attacks and loosen his grip. I pray Lord that this friend may come to know the real you. In Jesus name Amen.
