Call On God For Help In Desperate Times

by Jack Wellman · Print Print · Email Email

What can we do when we are in desperate situations?  Can we call on God? Can we depend on God?  Can we trust in God?

These are sobering times that we live in today.  Many people have lost jobs and can’t find one.  Others are underemployed and are just barely making it.  The unemployment rate is soaring, the stock market is highly volatile, and famine is spreading worldwide.  Families are losing their homes due to failed mortgages.  There are severe droughts, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, and tornadoes.  And with turmoil going on in the world people are becoming desperate; even the people of God.  What can we do when our backs are against the wall and we have no where to turn and we are in serious trouble?

God actually desires that we be utterly dependent upon Him and that we are in desperate need of His help.  Think of a human father.  What good father would not want his children to turn to him when they need help?  Naturally, a father loves it when his children come to him to seek help.  There is something special about having someone there for you.  God is this true source and He is more reliable than any human father or mother.

God Says Call on Me For Help

God truly loves those that are His.  He loves you!  Listen to what God says for those who are in desperate situations and what He promises when they call upon Him:

Psalm 50:15and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”

Psalm 91:14-16 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

Psalm 145:18-20The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. The LORD watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.”

Isaiah 41:17The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.”

Isaiah 55:1, 3Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.”

Isaiah 65:24Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.”

Jeremiah 33:3Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

Micah 7:7But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.”

God Says You Can Depend On Me

God wants us to depend on Him and not rely on ourselves.  God is our Father and we are His children. Children can not make it in this world without their parents.  How much more so can we not make it without the help of our Heavenly Father?  If we try to solve our problems by our self then we can really do nothing to ultimately solve them. God is actually more glorified in our weakness because by His strength He is able to display His might.  He stands ever ready, able, and willing to help us when we really need it but we must first acknowledge of our need for His help.  We truly find freedom from worry when we learn to depend upon God.  Read for yourself:

John 15:5 ““I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

Philippians 2:13for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”

1 Peter 5:7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. “

Matthew 28:20bAnd surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 6:25-27  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”

Matthew 6:30-31  “If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?  So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?”

Romans 4:20-21Yet he [Abraham] did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,  being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.”

Philippians 4:19And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”

God Says You Can Trust in Me

Our money says “In God We Trust” but it is hard to trust when everything seems to be caving in around us.  Nothing looks like it will turn out right.  At times there is no evidence that God is even with us so how can we trust in Him during calamitous times?  In reality, we can sometimes not even trust our eyes…but if there is anything in this universe you can trust, it is God Almighty.  It is the invisible hand that is placed in ours that never lets go.  Like a parent holding their child‘s hand, God is securely caring for us, never letting us slip or fall:

Isaiah 41:13For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear; I will help you.”

Proverbs 28:26 “Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.”

Jeremiah 17:5-7This is what the LORD says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the LORD. That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; they will not see prosperity when it comes. They will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives. “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.”

Psalm 32:7You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”

Jeremiah 32:27 I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Psalm 36:7 “How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!  People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.”

2 Corinthians 1:20 “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.”

2 Peter 1:4aThrough these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature.”

1 Chronicles 28:20 “David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.”


When everything seems to be falling in around us, when the walls seem to be closing in on us, when nothing in our world or in this world seems to hold any hope, when everything looks completely hopeless, just remember that God is not ever caught by surprise. He will save those who are His from calamity (Heb 7:25).  He isn’t ever going to abandon us, forsake us, or leave us.  If you are not one of His then you do not have such hope nor can you claim any of His mighty promises.   I pray right now that you seek Him because anyone who seeks Him He has said He can be found.  As it is written in Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.”  Second Corinthians 6:2 says, “For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.  I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.”  Tomorrow may be too late but it not too late right now to put your complete trust in Him, to depend on Him, to call on Him.  This is my prayer for you.  Please contact us if you make such a decision.

Please pray as I fear I have fallen away from God. My heart is literally hardened. God blessed me with the gift of faith, and I did not exercise it well before I was tested. Please pray that God will have mercy on my soul, and continue to grant me grace.


Jack Wellman September 25, 2016 at 5:46 pm

Hello HJ. If you are worried that you’ve fallen away, you probably have not done so, because those who fall away don’t care….so since you DO care, that’s evidence you probably haven’t. Please talk with your pastor…call him today. Please. Praying for you my friend.


umutoni September 27, 2016 at 9:33 am

Thank you for the Word of God. I wish more strength and win against any fear and sins .

I came upon your site tonight as I searched for prayers for the desperate. I truly am desperate. I have suffered from mental illness for far too long, cannot hold down a job or afford helpful medication, am over my head in debt, and have no family or friends I can turn to. Please pray for me. God bless.


Terry August 28, 2017 at 3:25 pm

Dear Kathy,
God loves you more than you know. God will turn everything that you put into God´s hands for your good and will bring glory to God through these problems, even your debt. I am agreeing with you that God will bring you all that you need: health, healing, godly family and friends, work for God, food, clothes, a good place to live, and the ability to hear God´s direction in your daily life. We ask this in the name of Jesus / Yeshua, our Saviour and the world´s Messiah.


Jack Wellman August 28, 2017 at 3:36 pm

How kind. Thank you Terry.

Please Pray for me and my wife! I Love her soooo much and have failed her as a husband. We both are sinners and the past is the past for both of us!! I am so scared that I will loose the person that I asked God for and that he sent to me…in His time I waited and He delivered! I have not listened to my heart when He spoke and now here I sit today. I am not giving up on my beautiful wife or my family, but I am turning to God and only God for wisdom and Love. By doing this I told God that I am His and to use me where He needs me and I will follow! I also realize that with this promise, satan is going to come at me and my wife “us” like never before, I/we need prayers to fight this Spiritual battle my wife and I share! I pray Father let Your will be done not mine! In Jesus name I pray

I also pray for those that left a comment on this website. My God bless you and lift your heart! God is Love!! Thank you!

Maja McCormack December 6, 2016 at 3:39 pm

Good afternoon today while I fast and pray I just feel like I reached my Breaking Point this 2016 has been such a hard year for me and no matter what I hold on my faith in almighty God. I cried today because I’m tired of fighting I’m asking for prayer that today would be the day of Deliverance and breakthrough in every part in my life.. I’m tired a feeling that whatever I try it’s a no today I’m praying that God will come through and break chains. That and I can hear my yes . And the and favor of God on my life in the name of Jesus Christ I pray amen…


Wendy December 15, 2016 at 11:02 am

We have to stand strong in the God that made us. Im 23 but ive suffered like people twice my age. God brought me to himself,he gathered me home two years ago. At first i could not believe someone could love me,(deep psychological worth issues from being born an illegitimate child). It has been long journey but God has been faithful to heal me,my broken educational dreams,failed only relationship. Now i undertand that sometimes timing isnt right and we need refinement before God can give us what we ask. Looking back i can safely comfirm that my dreams where too small,now i have God-sized dreams that can allow His strength to shine and make me need Him,and keep leaning on Him and that i cannot find fulfilment in a relatnshp or another finite human being, but rather i was made for a love affair with my Creator and i must say I LOVE JEHOVAH TO BOOT and i have discoverd in him the intimacy i always needed,ive always been such a lonely person, and friendshp and discipline(im two years celibate,despite an unusually high sex drive for a female haha, and God has mercifully put it to sleep,do not awaken bfr love pleases). Its true that everythng should spring from love of God,then everythng else (all the right things)falls into place. Im pleased to say that I NOW HAVE HOPE FOR MY FUTURE I NEVER POSSESSED BEFORE AND PEACE KNOWING HE WILL FULFILL HIS PURPOSES FOR ME. He knows me,trully knows me and loves ME and for me thats enough. It motivates me to please Him,not to sin and maintain our love. Im telling you God is intoxicating,im not even lonely i talk to Him and for those who dont know THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES SPEAK TO YOU,and the more you spend time talking to God,praying and reading the bible you will learn to hear His voice and discern the wooings of His spirit,(ladies here is a man who will never stop pursuing you), and give you direction and keep you company. And teach and discipline,sharpening your conscience,i feel miserable and distant from God when i sin,i can literally feel His displeasure but once you confess your error He is so faithful to forgive,cleanse and never remember again. I must thank Jehovah that He has given me such an acute sense of His presence,maybe its because for so long i struggld wth feeling alone and unseen,so lonely so desperately lonely. I feel like i have a friend at last,sm1 i cn count on,sm1 i dont have to prove myself to,for the longest time i did and became such an impossibly high achiever academically to prove subconsciously that i was also worth something, setting myself up for endless pain when every failure i encountered i treatd as a personal affront,thereby confirming what i subconsciously believd to be true about myself,that i wasnt worthy of even the air i breathd,no right to life,a result and tangible proof of other peoples moral failures. Bt then that verse freed me (You knew me in my mothers womb and you knit me together,and mydays where ordaind bfor i came to be,that God creatd everythng for His good pleasure) . He takes great pleasure in me ,you see.I thank God who raisd such a selfless child who died that we might know God the Father,that Epitome of goodness,graciousness ,kindness, warmth, love,faithfulness, wisdom, majesty and reliability. I love God, so help me God i adore Jehovah,…and Jesus, sweet sweet Jesus,what a wonder He is…


Ian December 30, 2016 at 6:54 am


I need your prayers for me. I am in serious trouble now which I foresee,is somehow impossible to solve. I am stuck in a situation where I trusted my friend too much to sell promotions in airfares and I followed her. Unfortunately, not a single promotion was there. So I am responsible to pay everyone whom I sold tickets to. I am terribly pressed down and everything seems to fall apart. God knows I had a good intention. But now, I have to surpass everything. I am trembling. I cried to God everytime but it seems I am always pressured. Please pray for me


Paige M Tomblin January 7, 2017 at 2:37 am

Please pray for me. I love my God. And I want to thank Him for everything He’s ever done for me, and for bringing me to read this page. I will live for Him. & cast my worries to Him.


Michael Bryant January 15, 2017 at 6:35 am

Flora January 29, 2017 at 6:30 pm

God, He is my master my leader my father and my lover, everything he shall tell me to do I she’ll do with pleaser as he says. He loves me like a father loves their child, he has a never ending love for me whatever I shall do, he cares for me like a farmer does care for his crops, he tended to me like a farmer tends to his crops. I am his seed to grow into a tree and he is the waterer, feeder, carer, and lover of his seeds. He shall raise them up but they shall chose which way they shall grow, they can grow to him and or they can grow away from him, he gives his seeds a choice, you cannot force a pant to grow as you want it to. When I thought God didn’t care for me or love me he came and helped me, when I was hungry he fed me, when I was thirsty he let me drink, when I was cold he cradled me and kept me warm, when I seek for his word he shall giveth it to me, he showed me he loved me, and for you it shall be.


Denise Bender February 12, 2017 at 6:39 pm

Wendy gale February 19, 2017 at 10:17 pm

I need Devine intervention. My heart breaks that I will be separated from my 12 and 15 year old girls as a change in primary custody to their dad. I will be 8.5 hours away. He is a very good dad and loves our girls very much. 15 wants this change and 12 just wants to be with her sister. I love my babies and can’t imagine not packing their lunches and hugging them every day. Please Father fix this! Somehow allow me to be a apart of my girls daily lives. They are my greatest treasure and I am so broken inside. I only have a few days left before this takes place.


Jack Wellman February 19, 2017 at 10:27 pm

Prayers for you Mrs. Gale.

Thanks for developing this site, it is of great help to me to focus on prayers that will built my faith for the Lord our God.
I really enjoy reading the scriptures and it empowered me to explode more about depending on God not mankind.


kezia March 8, 2017 at 9:17 pm

Please pray for me… I am in desperately needs of God’s intervention in my life regarding my financial turmoil. I am in so much debts and dying to get out of this financial issues throughout my life. I urgently needs for God’s miracle in my life. I confess I am a sinner and seek for God’s forgiveness as well…. I just can’t stand it anymore and thinking of ended my life, as I realise that God has given many opportunities and Grace but I just ignored them all and choose my own way of life. I hope God will forgive me as a sinner and a failure. I just don’t know what should I do in life now.


Jack Wellman March 8, 2017 at 9:20 pm

Praying as I write this Kezia. Please don’t end your life. That is surely not God’s will. We all fail. Call your pastor, ask for the prayers of the church (even as unspoken needs), and know that there are others out here that will be praying for you. We all are sinners, but we can confess them and they are forgiven (1 John 1:9). Now, you must forgive yourself.


Winniefred March 13, 2017 at 8:14 am

I’m a true believer in God, and I know he hears my prayers. I just love him with everything in me. I have faith, but right now it seems like my whole world is falling apart. Everything just keeps going wrong and I need prayers. Please pray for me and my family. God knows all about it.


Neo May 4, 2017 at 4:53 pm

Please pray for me I am in desperate need for a Devine intervention from the most high…I know his working on it and I receive it in Jesus name


Jack Wellman May 4, 2017 at 5:29 pm

Hello Neo. Yes, praying right now. Ask your church to pray for you as an “unspoken needs” because we need one another (Heb 10:24-25).


anonymous June 28, 2017 at 2:21 am

I have done wrong. I am sick of myself and shame and guilt crushes me. I have great fear in me because of what I’ve done. It’s so disgusting and it makes me want to die. I am so embarrassed, and scared. I am scared that I will be exposed, that all my relations will be ruined and that my future will be destroyed. Please I cannot live like this any longer. I need God to forgive me and I need the person to forgive me with the grace of God. Or else, I cannot stand it any longer. I need prayer and yet I cannot tell anyone. Please pray for me please.


Brian Jones July 6, 2017 at 5:47 pm

I need Gods help right now! I feel my prayers are being ignored, I feel I lost God, I feel like Im losing hope and I even asked God to take me but I dont want him too, its just Im so ambitious and want and need to achieve my goals but I keep going through hell to get there. I pray for a financial miracle and a miracle in general and always step out on faith for my goals. I put my goals to the side yo help others but I lose in the end. Im just tired and Im a very strong person but feeling like i dont have the God is making me weak and it feels lije hes showing me. I got so much stuff in my way but I can see the blessing and been believing blessings are coming but nothing came yet and ive been out of school for 15 years. Who to call on when Gods not listening. I still love and talk to him but it seems like im getting nowhere. I need a financial break through as well


Jack Wellman July 6, 2017 at 9:54 pm

Hello Mr. Jones, what I would do is please call your pastor and tell him and ask your church to pray for you as we are commanded to do (James 5:14) as we need one another (Heb 10:24-25) and seek to do what Jesus commands us to do (Matt 25:34-39) as we do it to Him (Matt 25:40) or we do nothing for Him (Matt 25:41- and that’s not good (Matt 7:21-23).


etanoma ogaga July 10, 2017 at 5:14 am

thank you very much for these bible passage, i`m really relieved and i need prayers for open door to finances and good health also.


John July 20, 2017 at 6:58 am

It seems all around me is falling apart, my finances, my family, my work. I don’t know where to start because all these are symptoms of one problem I think. Give me the wisdom of what to do next


Jack Wellman July 20, 2017 at 8:21 am

Hello John. Ask God for wisdom and James says He will grant it but please call your pastor and tell him as there is safety in the multitude of counselors, so ask your church to pray for you as we are commanded to do (James 5:14) as we need one another (Heb 10:24-25) and seek to do what Jesus commands us to do (Matt 25:34-39) as we do it to Him (Matt 25:40) or we do nothing for Him (Matt 25:41- and that’s not good (Matt 7:21-23). Are you giving anything now to the church? Do you give much in offerings? We are blessed according to how much we sow for God.


Clint July 31, 2017 at 8:42 pm

Jack Wellman August 1, 2017 at 9:01 am

Hello Clint. Please call your pastor and don’t end your life. God can forgive all of our sins. Please read what Jesus did for you (Phil 2).


Terri August 2, 2017 at 10:58 pm

Asking for prayer spport and for Gods divine intervention to help my daughter who is suffering from addictions and in denial. I pray that she seeks out God salvation and gets the help she needs so desperately. God can heal her and change her life, I believe this and know that there is power in prayer! Thank you!!


Dorina Moriarty September 4, 2017 at 8:33 am

While seeking Lord this morning, I found this encouraging site and only because of what I’ve been put thru, I can ‘feel’ the cries of others. My family has undergone major trials culminating with an electrical house fire that required critical renovations it is still undergoing.. still waiting and my diabetic husband who has suffered major multiple losses within his family is staying in the basement of the house. My daughter remained with him since surviving & still healing from a horrific first relationship where she said “God kept (her) alive”. She & I were in a trailer together on our property for 21 mos. I sought restful sabbatical with an older friend on Cape Cod where I come down to seek Him in prayer & with other Christian intercessors here. Please pray for my (Moriarty) family. We have a son too who is on his own. I pray both son & daughter will end up with good mates that fear & love God, will love & protect them & as my sister Maxine said, will have happy healthy safe & saved lives. We have no family members close & supportive. Please pray for Godly direction & guidance as to where to relocate & full restoration of our lives, house & home. Thank you & Bless You ~


Jack Wellman September 4, 2017 at 10:16 am

Hello Dorina. Please call your pastor and tell him and ask your church to pray for you as we are commanded to do (James 5:14) as we need one another (Heb 10:24-25) and seek to do what Jesus commands us to do (Matt 25:34-39) as we do it to Him (Matt 25:40) or we do nothing for Him (Matt 25:41- and that’s not good (Matt 7:21-23).


breakthrough now September 26, 2017 at 4:03 pm

I need a financial breakthrough right now as I write this message..sound desperate?..yes I am!! I’m praying and believing that a job will come for some time and I’m still unemployed with children, single and the bills are coming:(
I’m desperate for an immediate breakthrough. I don’t know what else to say to God…I’m nervous and having panic attacks or anxiety attacks or something. I can’t sleep because my mind is just racing wondering what else to do…yes wait on the Lord I am…but realistically the bills are there to be paid right now and I’m not what do I do when the time is now?….it’s too long of a suffering for me..God where are you?…why can’t I seem to get a break? I need to be in a job where I can be successful and the finances are there for me so I can provide for my children and we can live happy and comfortable with long healthy life…that’s what I’ve been asking for since Noah built the ark….I don’t even know why I’m writing this long comment!! Sigh….I just need help now.

Hello friend. please call your pastor and tell him and ask your church to pray for you as we are commanded to do (James 5:14) as we need one another (Heb 10:24-25) and seek to do what Jesus commands us to do (Matt 25:34-39) as we do it to Him (Matt 25:40) or we do nothing for Him (Matt 25:41- and that’s not good (Matt 7:21-23). Maybe even someone in your church can help you out. Many churches have deacon’s funds and such, but the prayers of the saints is probably the greatest think you can have right now. My prayers are for you.

I so desperately need Christian counsel. I have never in my life been in the despair that I am in right now. I have sought the help of several counselors, with no return calls. I have prayed and cannot tell the difference between my own voice and God’s. I have a serious decision to make right now, my family is falling apart. Is there anyone I can talk to online that you know of? Or yourself? I don’t know what else to do. I’ve never been this broken.


Jack Wellman October 14, 2017 at 10:28 am

Hello Amanda. Have you tried getting a hold of your own pastor in your church? What did he say? Did your pastor not return your call?


Stacy October 15, 2017 at 10:04 pm

Thank you for your words of encouragement Sola.


Christine November 3, 2017 at 3:46 pm

Hi, your article is very Bible-based I appreciate that. I would like you to pray for my husband, along with your whole congregation if you could. His name is Leon. He is a professing Christian. We have been married for 18 years, with 3 kids. Our whole marriage he has struggled with a particular area of sin. He has recently left our home, telling me and the kids he isn’t happy, and is doing this for himself so he can be. My kids are devastated. I myself didn’t see this coming. He has done this one other time. But now he needs total conviction and no peace until he turns back to the Lord. We are also praying for salvation, in case he really isn’t saved. It seems there is another person involved. Our church elders are trying to reach out to him but he is refusing to speak to any Christians so far. Please pray he will come to the end of himself quickly and that my kids will be protected, and that I will follow Gods way in this situation. Please do share this for prayer with your congregation. If you view this post for approval, please don’t put it up. If you don’t preview posts, then I guess it’s going up and for those who are reading it, please prThank you.


Jack Wellman November 3, 2017 at 5:27 pm

Christine, I will absolutely pray for you and your husband especially. I will pray others will join alongside you. I do pray God does have him come to an end of himself and break that pride so that God can give him His grace.


Lisa K December 4, 2017 at 2:54 am

Please pray for my young adult daughter who is getting caught up in a sinful lifestyle. I have prayed so much over the past few months for her to be delivered from this, my husband and son are praying faithfully too and I have requested prayer from my pastor for “family needs” but am too fearful and ashamed to be specific or to tell any of our immediate family what is going on so that they can pray too. This has been a nightmare and the saddest time of my life. I keep trying to just hand her over to God because I can’t heal her but I know He can. She has agreed to go to a Christian counselor with me that I’ve been seeing to try to cope with this so please pray for this situation.


Jack Wellman December 4, 2017 at 8:46 am

Hello Lisa K. I am praying right now.


Frankie December 11, 2017 at 8:01 pm

Please pray for my brother whom had to have emergency heart surgery and is now in a vegetative state. Pray God places a healing hand upon him to restore his mind and body. God created us so he can recreate us. I have faith that God will heal him and allow him to be a living testament to all people.


Heather Woods March 15, 2018 at 6:02 am

I really enjoyed reading this. It was very uplifting and it helped me to remember that God is always near to those who fear him. He is the only constant in my life. this article gave me hope. Thank you for writing this.

Jason April 25, 2018 at 2:34 pm

I’m having a really hard day and was lucky to find this website. I need help, I haven’t been a good husband to my wonderful wife and now all the years of neglect are adding up and has caused my wife to have very bitter feelings towards me. I love my wife and kids more than anything in the world and I really want us to all stay together but I understand that I may have done too much damage for her to move on with me. Please pray for God to help me to be a better husband and a better father. I know I can change and make them proud of me I just hope it’s not too late. I’m feeling desperate and overwhelmed. Thank you for listening,


Jack Wellman April 25, 2018 at 9:07 pm

Praying now Jason. My friend, I know it is never too late. Praying God blesses you thru this time of great difficulty. Just love her and the children as Christ loves the church….as best as you can.


Jason May 18, 2018 at 10:05 am

Thank you so much Jack for your prayers and advice. I know it takes time to heal and I just pray that my wife can forgive me and hold me close to her heart again someday. Your response to my post was a huge emotional lift for me and I feel like God wants you to know you he is proud of you and smiles when he sees the impact you are having on peoples lives. I’m very thankful that I found your website. May God bless you and have a great day.


Jack Wellman May 18, 2018 at 11:13 am

I will stay in prayer my brother, but as for God, it is all about Him (Psalm 115:1) for I could do nothing without Him (John 15:5), but thank you kindly for your encouragement sir. How kind.


chichi May 5, 2018 at 1:34 pm

I need the help of the Almighty to bring me out of massive indebtedness and to help me with my finances. I am unable to pay my children’s school fees and my rent. I need prayers for Gods divine help. I feel like I’m sinking. Panic attacks are ravaging my heart. I can’t sleep at all.


Jack Wellman May 5, 2018 at 2:05 pm

Please call your pastor and see if your church can help. we need one another as the Bible says (Heb 10:24-25). My prayers for you.


Jack Wellman May 6, 2018 at 5:40 pm

Hello Chichi. please call your pastor and tell him and ask your church to pray for you as we are commanded to do (James 5:14) as we need one another (Heb 10:24-25) and seek to do what Jesus commands us to do (Matt 25:34-39) as we do it to Him (Matt 25:40) or we do nothing for Him (Matt 25:41- and that’s not good (Matt 7:21-23). God works through His people as a means to help others.


Donna June 19, 2018 at 10:12 am

I need a prayer to help me save my home. I am the mother of a special needs child and the bank is days away from selling our home at a sheriffs auction. I run my own business from home because I was unjustly released from my previous job years ago due to poor health issues I had. Since then I’ve been doing anything I can to try and earn money to save our home. It was built by my grandparents and is the only safe place my child and I have. Without it, we will be out on the street. Please say a prayer for me that this horrible tragedy doesn’t happen and I find a way to pay off the bank and save our home in time.


Jack Wellman June 19, 2018 at 10:14 am

Praying now Donna. Please, anyone else reading this, pray for Donna. She is in great need.


Neels July 21, 2018 at 11:24 am

I am from a different Country but I know God is everywhere. I had most and lost everything – wife, kids, properties, job, car etc. I am an Engineer and was retrenched in Dec. 2013, working for a Canadian Company. After that I have not been able to find a job. I have tried everything possible to find a job. I live with people where I have built a house for them, but feel like a tramp. I use to provide and give everything but now I can do NOTHING! I have considered suicide many times and just can not think of another way out. Althought I built the place where I stay, I am getting pressure to move out. I feel useless in every way.
PLEASE just pray for me that I can get a work again and maintain a better quality of life. This is not me and I have reached my lowest low ever. Please, what must I do?


Jack Wellman July 21, 2018 at 11:59 am

Hello Neels. I am praying right now after reading this. Please call your pastor to see if they have other members who might offer employment. I don’t know where you live but I know you are right…God is everywhere. Please let me know how things turn out for you my friend.
