10 Scriptures About God’s Promises

2 Peter 1:4

And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Matthew 11:28-29

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Isaiah 40:29-31

He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

Philippians 4:19

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:37-39

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Microsoft Word - Document1Proverbs 1:33

But all who listen to me will live in peace,
untroubled by fear of harm.”

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Lorraine Dickson April 5, 2014 at 1:18 pm

I was in a coma for 3 days over 1 year ago. I have daily struggles with headache, balance problems and no motivation. I have lost a lot of cognitive skills i.e. cooking and gardening as I have no energy for these. I have a lovely 17 year old daughter Iona who still needs me to be a mum to her and help her through life. I am trying to trust God’s promises but finding it very hard. Can anyone give me some encouragement as life is very hard. Thank you.


Jack Wellman April 5, 2014 at 1:42 pm

Hello Mrs. Dickson, please allow me to help encourage you by giving you some great Scriptures:Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Lorraine In preparing my sermon for tomorrow I came across your request. I believe God is going to raise you up!Ps 103:1-5 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction,Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. LET IT BE!


Catherine Kuespert May 28, 2014 at 7:30 am

Lorraine, Jesus Himself loved and cared for His own Mother, Mary so much that His last act on the cross was to ensure her earthly well-being. Our Lord knew the strength and value of a Mother’s Love, and that it is one of the most precious treasures we can hold in our hearts. It is for this reason I thought to remind you that the Holy Mary is a Saint in Heaven also, and as a Mother, She will know your pain and needs, and you will find it a great Blessing to know that She is enfolding you and your daughter in her loving arms. The Almighty God chose Her to love and cherish His own Son, our Lord Jesus Christ! What a task She had set before Her! and She did not fail, and She will not fail you, Lorraine, nor your daughter. Kind regards.

Cheryl July 16, 2014 at 2:13 pm

The word states that God’s word will not come back void. If God said it his promises are true and it will do just what it is sent out to do.For there is no failure in God. As we trust God ask him to help your unbelief. May God bless you


Roxie August 10, 2014 at 8:05 pm

The only thing I can tell you is to keep trusting in God, He will take care of you and your daughter. His word said he will never leave you nor forsake you. I believe that enough for you and me. You see God will not lie, can not lie, and would lie. He has helped me out of a lot of situations. Keep the faith. Love you a child of God


John Faherty April 30, 2015 at 3:42 am

Hi Lorraine

Good morning , I just prayed for you now. I pray that God will give you boundless energy. That he will take away you pain and reatore you in Jesus mighty name .Amen

For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though He brings grief, He will show compassion. So great is His unfailing love. – Lamentations 3:31-32


Martin Ncube May 15, 2014 at 10:24 am

Dear sister Lorraine,
By his stripes we are healed” in the Bible: Isaiah 53:4-5. Make the word of God, the standard for your life. There is no sickness that our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ cannot heal. I would advise you to fast and pray every Wednesday and Friday, while reading Psalm 51, verse 7 – 19. Each time you kneel down, read the said Psalm and continue praying thereafter. Avoid drinking nor eating anything during your fasting. Of paramount importance, say”Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, come into my heart, save my soul today, my healer, my saviour, my provider. I know that you died on the cross for me, and our Lord God resurrected you from the dead. Lord, if my sickness, challenges and all, is to complete your will, do not take it away, in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen!. This kind of fasting should be a permanent routine. Sin no more. May the Lord hear your prayers and be healed. Read Isaiah 58, it will teach you what to do while fasting. For your prayers to be heard by our Lord, make sure you have forgiven all who have transgressed against you, remain blessed!.


Janice Yates May 19, 2014 at 5:12 am

PUSH my sister: Pray Until Something Happens
our experiences are designed by God to strengthen our spiritual muscles so we can fight in the whole armour of God. God does not allow us to go through valleys because He gets pleasure from our suffering. All our experiences are designed by Him to make us stronger- Rise up in faith

Please read Luke 18″1-8 Jesus told the story/parable of the widow who kept going to the unjust judge to deliver her from her adversary. He commented that this analogy was used to encourage us to keep coming to God with our request in prayer and supplications
PUSH my sister PUSH
My prayers are with you and family

Edmund Mabanag May 26, 2014 at 5:37 am

Before, when I was still a sinner. I am nearly contented with what I have. I already have everything I need and almost everything I want. By the time when I was saved, I felt complete at first but as time goes on, I started to fail at many things and thougt I was a failure. But I am still faithful to Him, but challenges keep on testing my faith, I am presently suffering from different diseases, problems, and failures. I keep on praying but still not seeing light in my life. But despite all of these I am still faithful. I pray for you my brothers and sisters to pray for me that I will overcome this tragedies and my suffering will not be in vain. I pray for strength and courage to continue my service in God.


Bud Kaye May 28, 2014 at 11:35 am

Howdy Edmund! :) Please know that I, and others are out here praying for you! :)
I too have some days when I feel like a failure, yet I still trust in Him also.

Your trust in Him can NEVER be in vain! :)

Philippians 4:13
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Bless you !! :)


Agnelo Smith October 17, 2015 at 6:46 am

Brother in Jesus Christ remember the story Job and all that he had gone through. He still did not give up but waited on the Lord with all his belief and in return the Lprd say his faithfulness and in dpuble folds returned back all that he had lost so be blessed and stay in faith God is true in his words. Amen


John Landau June 8, 2014 at 7:25 pm

It’s okay to express real human feelings/emotions. Expressing your pain to Jesus is authentic. I’ve been very ill for 6 years now. Many times I thought I’d never make it. Desperate moments. Despair moments. Anger moments. Fear moments. Just the other day I cried: Lord, if you love me, why don’t you do something? Immediately in my heart, I heard: “I already did. I’m sharing my Passion with you.” What shame! But then, I felt immensely blessed and began to praise and thank Him for this gift of suffering alongside Him. Prior to this, I felt as if I were being punished, tortured. Now, I just trust Him and know that He is carrying me to Calvary that I may share in His glory. It can’t get any better than that. Seek The Holy Face of thy Christ and He will comfort you in your pain and tribulation. God Bless.


T Y TAN June 17, 2014 at 3:44 am

Thanks for the article. Just one concern about one of the verses you quoted – Jeremiah 29:11 – might need explanation. This verse is probably the most misunderstood verses in the Bible concerning the promises of God. It is about the assurance that God gave to the exile for a specific reason. It is not as simple as giving someone a rosy promise that many have misused.


Jack Wellman June 17, 2014 at 7:47 am

Thank you for your comment. I agree about the context of this verse and I understand that this was not written to Christians but to Israel who were being held captive by Babylon and made slave but weren’t all believers at one time held captive by their sins because Jesus said “everyone who sins is a slave to sin” (John 8:34). So even though this message was to Israel, God has plans for us too, even though we cannot see what they include in the future but we can trust in God that they are for our benefit (welfare) and not meant to do us harm (evil) and His plan is a great hope for us and when our hope is in Him, it is as good as done!


Sarah Olsen June 22, 2014 at 10:17 pm

Thank you for the encouragement! Is there any information or guidance about how to be a writer for this ministry or other ministries? I am in college to become a journalist and I am a believer in Jesus Christ and would love to use my writing to encourage others about Christ and share his great Message.

Thank you,

Thank you Mrs. Olsen for your comment. You can always click on the “Contact Us” link to try and apply as a “guest” writer even though your name is listed if you are able to write for us but as for other ministries, you can start your own blog at or any other number of free websites that allow you to start your own blog or website. May God richly bless you in college.


Aiban June 26, 2014 at 1:00 am

I have been going through a tough time lately, I prayed to God alot but I felt like my prayers were not heard, I cried most of the time as my heart is not at ease…I got indulge myself in drinking and smoking as I cannot forget my past life which indeed so peaceful n beautiful, I really want to find peace n to be love once again..Please pray for me, I have been trying so hard to be on the right path but failed over and over again..I need God so much I want God to change back my life, I realy wish to go back time.


Jack Wellman June 26, 2014 at 9:11 am

Hello Aiban. May I suggest you talk to your pastor right away. I know that there is real power in the Word of God, the Bible. How often have you been reading the Bible and praying? These two things, as well as talking to your pastor in counseling, are the greatest weapons in overcoming sin above all things. If you really wish to go back in time and want God back in your life, stay in the Bible at least two times a day. Request prayer from your church for the more you have praying for you the better, otherwise if you do not do any of these, you are going to forever be struggling.


Aiban September 3, 2014 at 12:31 am

Sir, i do read my Bible before bedtime, i do pray many times in a day, something starts happening in my life n i owe it all to everyone who prayed for me, do pray for me for i am willing to give everything with all my heart to be in the right path and glorify my God through all my struggles….i thank you for your suggestion sir…God bless you


Jack Wellman September 3, 2014 at 1:47 pm

I am glad you are already doing what you need to be doing. Have you a pastor to speak with sir? I love that you are willing to give all for His glory. That’s awesome Aiban.


Aiban September 4, 2014 at 12:36 am

Yes sir, I do have a pastor whom I shared everything with and I am hoping and patiently awaiting my past life to come back. I kindly request you and everyone here to keep me in your prayers and that God will give me victory.

Bud Kaye June 26, 2014 at 12:34 pm

Hi Aiban! :) I pray for you!!! :) Good words from God for us below…
John 16:33
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

So keep looking to Him! :)

Isaiah 26:3
“You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You”


Aiban September 3, 2014 at 12:44 am

I thank you a lot for praying for me… God bless you :)


aiban November 24, 2014 at 7:13 am

I have been loving one person so much that i really want her back into my life.. I have love her wholeheartedly but for some mistake she left me a year ago but I thank God for everything that now i have been learning so much and I really want her back. I prayed and prayed that God will speak to her and give me a second chance for which i have promise to give the best that I can to her and to glorify God as long as I


Wayne July 26, 2014 at 7:53 pm

My wife of only 8 months, walked out in November 2013. She is a drug addict, bipolar represent, and moved right into the bed of her supplier. I’ve had to file divorce papers, but do not want this. I want her healed, our marriage restored, and a ministry for us. I pray the promises of the bible, agree with others, but it seems all hope is lost. I do believe The Lord can save a dead marriage, but I’m simply not getting anything right now in our relationship. I miss her so much. The Lord has blessed me financially, gotten out of debt, and able to give more. I cherish and praise Him for blessings, but so much want my wife back.


Jack Wellman July 26, 2014 at 8:16 pm

Wayne, I am so very sorry my friend. I can’t imagine how hard this must be but as I spoke to a dear friend yesterday who is going thru a severe trial in his marriage, we sometimes have to let God’s silence be allowed to be His room to work in a spouse’s life. I told him that we must allow room for the Holy Sprit to convict her and to let her go is to trust in God. By not contacting her and staying in contact with God is showing God that you trust Him to do what we cannot and what only He can do. Stay in the fight for this marriage my brother and so do on your knees, and perhaps Psalm 37 may give you some comfort.

Listen to the words used in reference to attaining the desires of our hearts, which are all found in Psalm 37. In God we are; to trust, to wait, to rest, to delight, to commit, to know, and to have patience. In these we receive; our delights, His peace, His safety, His stability, His provisions, His guidance, His protection, His deliverance, firm footing, a secure future, your refuge, no worry, no poverty, and He will give you the desires of your heart. This doesn’t mean a guarantee that all things will work out as we wish but we know that, ultimately, all things will work out for those who love God for our best (Rom 8:28).

Psalm 37 speaks about God granting the desires of our heart if we delight in Him but again, this is no guarantee that your marriage will be restored.

How do you delight in the Lord so that you may receive the desires of your heart (v. 4)? What is delight? Here is the definition and when you read it, just imagine that God is the focus and subject of your delight in. Delight: A great satisfaction and joy; something (or someone) that gives great pleasure; to satisfy greatly; to please. That’s the key to finding the desires of your heart. Take great pleasure in God’s goodness. Take joy in your salvation. Let Him satisfy your every need. Let Him please you in all that you do. Desires take time. This is where the words of Psalm 37 are clear; wait, rest, trust, and know. If you delight in the Lord, He will give you the desires of your heart. It is not a quid pro quo God, but a God Who Himself delights in giving us our desires; the desires of our hearts. Just delight in Him.

Sometimes, not always, absence makes the heart grow fonder.


Wendy October 27, 2015 at 6:32 am

Life is an ongoing journey with God. It seems I take 2 steps forward and 1 step back but I keep pressing on. A new revelation that has finally stuck in my heart is that I really can trust God. His ways are not my ways. His thoughts are not my thoughts. And He really does know best. He really does love me. Praying through the lens of scripture and asking God to grow our love and trust in Him will help us to see our trials and difficulties on this earth as momentary afflictions. I don’t have physical afflictions but I do struggle with many things. I am poor in spirit and I am promised the Kingdom of Heaven. Through life here on earth the only way to get through is to love God with all our hearts, mind soul and strength and love others as ourselves. Be in God’s word, memorizing and allowing it to penetrate every cell of our body so that in times of trial, worry, physical suffering, despair, anger, (fill in the blank) we can rest on His promises and His truth, no matter the outcome because what awaits us is worth it. But we have to believe what He says over what our sinful minds tell us, what the world tells us and what our circumstances tell us. I know no other way than to constantly be putting God’s truth in our minds and establishing a real relationship with God through prayer. It’s a journey and I am not there by any means, but praise God he won’t leave me on this journey. I stumbled on this blog through a search for God’s promises. I like how you start by showing that God’s word is trustworthy because it was “God-breathed”. God Bless your ministry here!


Sandy August 4, 2014 at 8:13 am

I want to ask for prayers. I started loosing my hair a few months ago due to stress and lack of sleep. I’m on a healthy schedule now but my hair seems to fall out in clumps everyday and it’s getting harder to hide the big bald spots on my head. I know it’s selfish of me to care about hair. As a young woman it’s hard to deal with becoming bald so suddenly. GOD is showing me that I need to take care of myself a lot more especially because I have little ones. I trust our LORD every minute of my life. And I know he will heal me. Please pray for me


Jack Wellman August 4, 2014 at 8:46 am

I will do Sandy. I am so sorry. Have you thought about going to your doctor and asking him or her about this? This might be treatable but even if not, you have my prayers and hopefully the prayers of others.


Carol August 7, 2014 at 8:07 pm

Hi. My fiance, a pastor left me days ago saying that he had consulted some Men of God on our relationship and they said that our relationship was a time bomb. He even said that he had received prophecies on the same. I was left confused because we have been together five years and would have married next year By God’s grace. Also, as a child, i had ‘visions of our being together as well as confirmations later on in life. I begged him to stay but he refused. I know God doesn’t contradict Himself. What should i do?


Heath August 7, 2014 at 9:57 pm

Hi carol, first of all I want to say that my heart goes out to you in the trial you are faced with.
I have been on both sides of the coin.
First of all, you are right, For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭14‬:‭33‬ KJV)
However, sometimes one can have a completely different impression of what God wants. My best advise is to not push, the “Gods will” thing, but to simply be there for him, if you love him, tell him. Be supportive of his breathing space, he’s probably feeling very closed in right now and his friend is probably sensing that. If it is Gods will he will bring you together in his time. When God puts something in someone’s heart they can’t get it out, believe me I know:)
Pray, pray, pray, this is your chance to grow close to Jesus, after all, he is our bridegroom:)


Jack Wellman August 8, 2014 at 10:28 am

Hello Carol. Let me first say that you are much better off not marrying this man. I see many problems with this man. These “men of God” are false prophets. For one thing, the gift of prophecy in the New Testament or church age today is that prophecy means “truth or “forth telling” not predicting the future. Him saying that he received prophecies ignores the Biblical truth that we already have all revelation from God we will ever need and that is found in the Bible. God has no record of using visions except for apostles and so your vision cannot be used for what is truthfully supposed to happen. We must rely on what the Bible says. Would you want to end up marrying this unstable man and then having him divorce you because he received more “prophecies?” Then, you wouldn’t have a chance to get married again. God blessed you here I believe in keeping you from a terrible divorce and unstable marriage. I would find another church too because it sounds like he is confused on what prophecies are and how God uses them in the church….as they are a gift of teaching and not predicting the future.


athena September 8, 2014 at 2:23 am

I am lost, i grew up mostly alone and ignored by others. They taught me how to lie and told me to act like an adult when i was 7. Now that i am older i find myself hopeless, sad and angry. I cant let go of my past, it makes me who i am. But i want to be a happier better person. Can someone help me please? I pray for others can god hear me or are others prayers louder than mine?


Jack Wellman September 8, 2014 at 9:08 am

Athena, thank you for your prayer request. Have you spoken with your pastor about this? You must learn to forgive yourself if you have been born again since you are cleansed by Christ’s blood (1 John 1:9) and God sees you as having Jesus’ righteousness (2 Cor 5:21). You must believe God. When the Devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future. No one is promised happiness in this life in the Bible but we are promised eternal life if we have repented and trusted in Christ. Do you believe God’s Word? If you are forgiven, now you must forgive yourself. Your past doesn’t make you who you are, God does as His child. Read Romans 8 to see how you are a new creature in Christ.

I need prayer. I’m a married mother of 6 and it gets overwhelming at times. Mostly now because we are having housing difficulties. I know Jesus and I am standing firm on his word that he will never leave or forsake us. Also my husband does not have a strong belief in leading us in prayer. Please pray and believe with me that Jesus will fix this.


Jack Wellman October 8, 2014 at 8:31 am

Will pray for you my friend. You must be so busy. May God grant your husband repentance and conviction by the Spirit to be nearer to God or to be born again, if he is not already.


AA October 8, 2014 at 2:05 pm

Hi,i went through a near death situation last year but with the grace and glory of God i am alive and well today to give a testimony to the world on how WONDERFUL my God is. While i was going through pain and feeling miserable most of the times, it was like ‘milk and honey’ to some of my ” really close friends and family”.They whispered together against me;they were waiting impatiently to start making my funeral arrangements with the vultures even though i still had life in me. At the time,i knew i believed in God though i had so little faith in him (isn’t that funny?) and i would fast and pray for God to just relief me of my pain but i guess God had a different plan for me. I cried out to him and told him that if he would bring healing to my illness,i will serve him forever.God answered my cry and said my haters will NEVER triumph. He set a table for me in the presence of my enemies. When i had surgery for my illness, and was in the ICU recovery room, one of my most familiar haters came to spy on my condition (to see if i would live or die). Every time he came,he will bring back information to my family how he wasn’t sure i would make it. They would feast and rejoice over it.Thanks to the glory of God that i called on his might name and he answered me.My haters are in distress today because they know who my father is. My FATHER is in
front of me,He’s behind me, He’s on my sides and He lives inside of me and i will not be shaken by anything or anyone.Today, medical professionals call me a medical miracle but i call it God’s miracle. i would be dead if not for his healing hands.Yes he put spiritual healing in the hands of the most amazing medical crew i had. I have learned that nobody can make decisions for God but He alone because he is “I AM WHO I AM”,YAHWEH,the God of Abraham,the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.I pray for the people who hate and ask God to Forgive them because they know not what they do.


Laura October 13, 2014 at 10:57 am Laura Livesay I married a man who killed his own dad at 14. Today’s the 30th anniversary. He said that he did it in self defense but speaking with eyewitnesses I’ve been told that he shot him in the back 5× as he was going out the door. I left him 5 yrs ago & I’m set to divorce him tomorrow. He wasvery abusive to me& ourown 2 boys. He started threatening to kill me& my family& told me that he was poisoning us. I went to Dr’s & they couldn’t find anything. Theyactually misdiagnosed me schizophrenic because I told them that myskin was crawling. They removed my children from me when I earned my living working with special needs children. Since then I did everything to get them back& have had them since 2011.I humbled myself before God& asked for healing ( I’m disabled with so many diagnosis). God led me to an ionic foot detox which detoxes all of your organs. It’s a machine that produces ions and then stabilizes the ions in the body so that you can release the toxins. You place your feet in sea salt water and places the ionizer in the water with your feet. You can see the toxins in the water. My & my children’s water is Full of parasites which would explain my skin crawling! Police won’t open an investigation without something solid from the Dr. Doctors never even tested us for parasites! I am working on that now. In the meantime my kids are forced to see him every other weekend. He is walking around his apartment recording ghosts& telling the boys that the ghosts are going to get them. He’s physically holding down the boys and making them watch the Chucky movies and has even bought a Chucky doll& chased them around with it. My youngest son’s name is Tyler& in Chucky 3 he says Tyler come out wherever you are I’m going to get you. My son has been coming home having nightmares about Chucky. They also have reported seeing ghosts. He also walks around with an Emf detector confirming the ghosts. He has shown them KKK videos and tried to teach them how good of a man Hitler was. He has broken things in front of them and hit his girlfriend in front of them. Cps just closed their 4th or 5th investigation on him on 10-10-14. Cps tells me that they must have a affidavit from a mental health professional stating emotional injury or abuse. They see a counselor at 7 counties in Louisville, KY& the counselor states that this is against company policy. I have tried calling many mental health care providers& all of the ones that I have contacted say that it’s also against their policies. I have been praying that if 2 are in agreement according to God’s will that it will be given to them. I have prayed that God will bring the truth to light. I have prayed for justice with mercy. I pray every time they go for visitation that God put his hedge of protection around my sons. They often come home very sick but I still thank God that they made it home safe& I ask for his wisdom to treat their illnesses since often times Dr’s cannot even find out what is wrong with them. Please pray for our deliverance! Any wise counsel that anyone can give I would greatly appreciate! Thanks& God bless you


Jack Wellman October 13, 2014 at 7:35 pm

I am so sorry. This man is going to face the wrath of God someday because he is obviously not saved. That is what we need to do for only the Holy Spirit can change this man’s heart. Its going to take this kind of miracle. No amount of counseling would likely help. Would he consider going with you to speak to your pastor? What has your pastor said about this? God can change the heart of even a pagan king (Prov 21:1) but this must come thru perhaps fasting and prayer. What are they sick from? Their illnesses might be from the evil spirits that likely are exposed to by your ex because for example, Hitler was known to try and contact Satan and worked under demonic spirits. This man is possibly possessed by the Devil. Do the boys want to visit him? You said he was making death threats and so this is a crime so why wouldn’t the police allow you to file charges is a mystery to me? Have you spoken with the District Attorney about this? Go to him or her and bypass the police. Praying for you. Talk to your pastor about this as well and see what he advises you to do.


Lindi November 20, 2014 at 2:30 am

aiban November 26, 2014 at 7:31 am

I have been loving one person so much that i really want her back into my life.. I have love her wholeheartedly but for some mistake she left me a year ago, but I thank God for everything that now i have been learning so much in life, I love her and I really want her back. I prayed that God will speak to her and give me a second chance for which i have promise to give the best that I can to her and to glorify God as long as I

Great prayer request Aiban. I pray with you my friend.


aiban November 28, 2014 at 2:37 am

I thank you so much sir…. I really hope for the best.


aiban December 17, 2014 at 4:21 am

I really am out of hope, I really want something to happen before this Christmas…I want God to help me now..


Jack Wellman December 17, 2014 at 8:39 pm

Don’t lose hope Aiban. If it is not going to happen then it is God’s will and God’s will is always best in all cases, even if it doesn’t look that way right now.


aiban December 22, 2014 at 1:38 am

I really want this happen and I know God’s will is the best, I prayed for this everyday but I lack so much in faith and easily get discourage, sometimes feels like giving up asking for the same thing over and over again… I really dont know why I want her so much..


Jack Wellman December 22, 2014 at 9:13 am

Hello Aiban…you must seek God’s will above your own. God knows the end of all things and may realize that this relationship would lead into a divorce or destruction…but still seek God’s will above you own as you say you know it’s best and I’m glad you do.


aiban January 2, 2015 at 2:28 am



L January 2, 2015 at 11:47 pm

I hope I can round up immediate prayers tonight for David. He has MS, but 2 weeks ago suffered a heart attack. He died twice but they revived him, thank God. he also has diabetes and needed a blood transfusion. He has been through hell and back. He is NOT saved and was very angry at God and refused prayer, but admitted to me now that he has seriously looked at his mortality and asked me to pray! Knowing him, this is a miracle in itself. tonight he is in the hospital with a temperature which for him could be deadly. He is very scared. Please pray for a miraculous healing, but mostly for salvation. May God pay him a personal visit tonight. May he have a testimony to spread! God Bless all.


Miguel January 12, 2015 at 4:18 am

Hi josh,
I have been struggling with my pornography addictions for years. It was until my aunt introduced christ to me.I stopped sinning during that time but it came back to my life again. I repented and prayed but still felt guilty.Is God still mad at me for repeating my sins again? Please pray for me and give me a verse….


Jack Wellman January 12, 2015 at 8:44 am

Hello Miguel. Please read and follow the steps given in our article on How to Overcome Pornography at this link: We give practical steps in how to overcome this so know that God is not mad at you for repeating this sin because we all fall far short of His holiness (Rom 3:23; 6:23) so keep fighting, take drastic steps (given in the pornography article I have in a link in this article). Keep fighting from your knees, stay in constant prayer, stay in the Bible every day as much as possible and God will give you the help you need. Follow the advice in the article here at:


aiban January 16, 2015 at 5:08 am

How do I seek God’s will? How do I know that my prayers are right or wrong? With every step I have been trying the best that I can to walk right,do right. I have been following the scriptures and am trying to make it right. How can I receive my prayers? I really want Him to speak to me,telling me what I should ask and what not. I really want my past love so bad. This has been my true reasons for every thing, but this has made me want God so much more in my life. God did something great in my life for which I really want to be with my past love so much and help her get right with God… I love her so much, I really want to give the best for her and her family..Please pray with me, please pray for me.
God Bless You


Jack Wellman January 16, 2015 at 5:31 pm

God will answer the prayers that are according to His will…so that much we know about prayer. You asked “How can I receive my prayers?” Do you mean God receive your prayers? God does speak to us in His Word, the Bible. The Spirit will guide us in what we need to pray for too. You can only pray to make your past love get right with God. It is up to her. Pray that the Holly Spirit convicts her to get right with God. Is she saved? Why does she need to get right with God? What’s she been doing? I would like you to read a couple of articles we wrote on prayer based upon Scriptures. One is called How Should I Pray at: and the other is what the Bible says about prayer. I pray these help you my friend to get some answers from God’s Word.


aiban January 20, 2015 at 12:16 am

Thank you sir for the links you gave me. I really am hoping for answers from God. Its just that I have love her so much and I just wish that she’ll come back. Being with her is all I ever wanted..Thank you sir for helping me and guiding me. Grace and peace be with you. God Blessed.

Proverbs 4:18–The path of those who live right is like the early morning light. It gets brighter and brighter until the full light of day.

Psalms 92: 12-14–The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Vs 13: Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.

14:–They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing.

BRT February 21, 2015 at 11:15 pm

Please pray for a husband for me,I’im climbing up in age and feel my time has run out, this is my true feeling. God Bless.


m March 2, 2015 at 12:12 am

please pray for me, my life is beyond a mess and I haven’t heard from God in a long time, even during my pleads. I have also seriously backslidden, im very ashamed. I am so lost and feel no energy to even pray. thank you for your prayers.


Jack Wellman March 2, 2015 at 8:35 am

Hello M. I am so sorry…I will pray for you. In the meantime, why don’t you speak with your pastor about this. Find out how he can help you in counseling. Please know that God will never give up on you.


m March 23, 2015 at 6:20 pm

I am asking God to show me why he brought someone back into my life after so many years. we were in love for many years to be married, but this has brought on deep emotional hurts to resurface and worst they have hurt me again. what was the purpose? even though I told this person goodbye for good, I feel lost and emotionally drained, a horrible hurt has opened up that I feel will never heal this time. One good thing is I had a chance to tell him I have been saved, he says he was/is close to God, but from what I see he is lying, he is a confirmed liar and narcissist. I pray he gets saved, it would have been worth my trauma. God Bless.


Jack Wellman March 23, 2015 at 7:39 pm

I am not the author of this article “M” but I will join with you in praying for your lost husband to be convicted of his sin and to see his need for the Savior. Perhaps Paul tells us why you were brought together in 1 Cor 7:16 “For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband?” Think of his eternal state after Rev 20:12-15! I pray he doesn’t go thru this and I will be praying with you my sister in Christ.


Gwendoline Beukes April 13, 2015 at 7:55 am

I am in financial distress. Please assist me in prayer for God to give me the breakthrough in my finances. I am a single mom and I am living from paycheck to paycheck and it feels that everyday is a constant struggle.



M April 15, 2015 at 8:51 pm

Father God please help Gwendoline with her prayer request, she is struggling and needing relief, I trust You can help her situation soon, In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen!

dear friends .

I’m Tanya from India .recently i had applied for an internship in Germany -it’s always been my dream to go there and I’M sure my parents would be very proud of me if i do get selected because i’ve not done them any good lately …it kills me to even think of those times when my mama would cry or my daddy would weep because of the sins of my past .. what worries me is that i’m also an under achiever and this might impact the selection procedure :( :( i’ve deserted GOD for many years now but lately i have started to read his word again and pray …please my brothers and sisters do pray for me that i will get selected for this internship program .it will certainly boost my long lost self confidence and also my trust in him who made me and i also promise to honor him !!! please pray for me :( :(


Craig May 5, 2015 at 8:15 am

Thank you for providing guidance and encouragements seen in Scripture. We are all truly blessed to have Christ as our Lord, He will NEVER fail us.


Rene May 16, 2015 at 11:37 am

I am a young pastor overseeing a church parish in Sarawak Malaysia. I ask for prayers for more grace strength in the mission field. As there are a lot of challenge in the area of location, opposite religion policy, which is limiting in some aspect. God bless you all.


Jack Wellman May 16, 2015 at 2:08 pm

Praying for you my friend. I am so sorry.


imee July 18, 2015 at 7:03 pm

Thank you for your help and miracles will come to my brother. Cancer will be out and melt like an ice.


Bob August 23, 2015 at 12:20 pm

Loraine- it’s tough, very tough, and there are no easy answers- I’m sure you’ve heard all the verses that say ‘trust the Lord’ and ‘He will provide’ etc- but it’s not much help when you are lying in bed too weak to do what you need to do- lying there feeling as though you are a failure- it’s not easy not beign able to contribute to life like we think we should- it’s humiliating becoming dependent on others, financially, physically etc- Especially when you get cut down in the prime of life after having been physically active, productive, provider etc.

The harsh truth is that God doesn’t promise us good health, wealth, or even that we’ll be much use in life with good health- some people just suffer suffer suffer, then die-

The real struggle is being able to come to a point where we can honestly say “It’s ok God- You are sovereign, I accept what you have called on me to do- to be sick- I want more of course, but your will be done, and I accept that”

It doesn’t really matter much (in the sense that our condition will not change whether we accept it or not) whether we ‘accept’ our plight or not- we ARE going to go through it no matter what- that is the hand we’ve been dealt in life- period.

Are you strong enough to Accept your plight and love God through it all? Many aren’t- but when we don’t- we not only have to deal with physical weakness, but we also have to deal with spiritual weakness as well- and to deal with bitterness, resentment, anger, which just results in making the situation worse.

There are lots of verses that speak about God ‘prospering’ those who wait on Him, of ‘healing’ those who put their trust in Him- however, these verses are not for everyone- many times they are verses meant only for the nation of Israel as a whole- not individuals within Israel etc-

I think that the following verse is really the only oen we can know applies to everyone in our conditions

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Life is what it is, and that is that. No matter how much I plead and beg God to change the circumstances, He is not willing to do so- and it seems very unfair- it almost seems like God enjoys being cruel at times, as I have to endure extreme pain at times, and although I beg for relief- God does not act to relieve the pain for hours, or for days- it’s times like that when you wonder if God delights in seeing His children squirm in pain- We wonder why a parent would allow their child to suffer such pain, confusion, dismay- especially when it’s In their power to prevent it-

These are tough questions, however, in order to help alleviate some of this despair, let’s take stock of what we do have. A bed to lie in, heat when it’s cold, food every day, water, TV, internet, clothes, vehicles, indoor plumbing, and practically everything we could want for- many people don’t have anything much more than the clothes on their back, they fight for life when it’s freezing out- they have to eat out of garbage cans etc

The point being I guess that life could be much much worse- and while it isn’t very good, God has seen fit to make sure we’re well taken care of for now in our pain and weakens- let’s try to remember the verse which states “For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,”

Life is what it is, and if God has deemed it necessary for us to endure weakness and pain, then He is preparing an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison for us in heaven.

(Yes, it’s normal to wonder why God would create us just to have us suffer when it’s in His power to stop it immediately and permanently, and it’s normal to think it would have been better had we never been born- but even though we may have to endure 80+ years or so of pain, it’s nothing compared to eternity- I’ve had a really hard time just coming to the point where I can finally say “Whatever God, this is your show- I just ask that You help me not to falter in my faith through it all, because I feel like I’m on the verge of doing so now- IF it pleases You, please give me strength of faith- if not, then Your will be done, I’ll see You in heaven, and will know then why You required me to go through all this- in Jesus Name Amen”


Wandolo October 13, 2015 at 3:41 am

Sorry, for the coma my friend, what i can say about your situation is that God never sleeps nor does he slumber, at times it may seem hard to believe in him but everything as the word of God says happens because of a reason, Here is a reason why you should be Happy about your situation imagine how many people you were with in coma lost their lives while you survived and God needs you to glorify his name and give your testimony on what he has done for you. Be happy my friend remember God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you could ever ask from him according to the power that worketh in you, If he was able to take you out of coma then trust him to restore all the things that you feel you have missed. GOD HE’S ABLE.


Jack Wellman March 19, 2014 at 8:02 pm

Thank you Jay…you are so refreshing to us here my brother and I thank God for you and amen…let’s celebrate this precious promise that is so valuable all the wealth in the universe could not buy it yet God gives it to us free and not all of the humanity ever born and living today could earn it! Thanks Jay. Good stuff. John 6:28-29 is one of my many, many memory verses in the Bible and John’s gospel is my favorite one!
