NEED A HELPING HAND - CONSULT THE PRAYER LIST AT THE PEW SHEET TAB = and see below for a general outline.
IF YOU NEED EXTRA HELP AND ENCOURAGEMENT READ SOME OF THE FOLLOWING You can talk to God about absolutely everything. Matthew 7:7 Jesus said, "Ask and you will receive; seek, and you will find: knock, and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks will receive, and anyone who seeks will find, and the door will be opened to the person who knocks."
*** God speaks through His word, it encourages us to pray. Seek relevance in prayer as Jesus and the Holy Spirit intercedes for you - they understand the difficulty engaging in prayer.
TELL GOD how you feel about absolutely everything and seek His guidance. I Peter 5:7 "Leave all your worries with him, because he cares for you."
** There are many Bible verses that lead us into God's presence. Others help us once we're there. Praying can be a difficult thing to begin doing - you'll learn as you see and recognise God working in and for you as He answers. If you can't locate your own verses, try some of these.
Psalm 119:105 "Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path." Encouragement to learn God's Word, the Bible.
Psalm 119:18 "Open my eyes, so that I may see the wonderful truths in your law." Be prepared for changes.
Psalm 25:4-5 "Teach me your ways, O LORD; make them known to me ... for you are my God ... I always trust in you."
Hebrews 13:5-6 "God has said, 'I will never leave you; I will never abandon you.' Be bold and say, 'The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?" Wow, God has NOT left you alone - YOU have a friend! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
