Some changes at PrayerForAnxiety…

Good day to you!

There are going to be  some changes around here. I’ve been thinking and praying about this a lot lately.

The Lord inspired me to start this site five years ago. Since then we’ve received 1.4 million visitors.  The site has 2,100 subscribers, 92.4K Pinterest followers and 4,400 Facebook fans. That’s awesome… and you’re a big part of it all!

The Lord has certainly blessed the work here, and I’m so thankful. The best part has been the blessings, prayers and support we share on the Ask For Prayer board.

The decision I made is to not dedicate anymore time to creating publications for sale. What I have on Amazon will stay there for now, but if anyone wants anything available for sale on this site for free, just email me at contact@prayerforanxiety.com.

Some of you may have already noticed that new posts have nothing for sale. My plan is to keep it that way.

I will continue to accept donations and trust in God’s providence to let me continue this work. Email me if you’re interested in making a donation.

Thank you  and may God bless you abundantly!

Vincent

p.s. … stay tuned for other announcements…  🙂

At 5 for you

Last Monday, I began a new writing project. I get up at 5 a.m., pray a bit, then I begin writing whatever comes to my mind and heart. During this early morning time, I often think about you. I’m not sure when my writing will be finished, but you’ll be the first to know.

I’ll let you know how my progress goes…

Have an awesome and blessed weekend!

Taking a day off

Hello friends in Christ!

Today here in Argentina – and in many other countries – it’s Worker’s Day, so I’m taking the day off.

Many of you know I publish a new reflection/prayer/audio every Wednesday. Don’t worry though, tomorrow I’ll be posting — just one day late!

I want to thank and bless all those that work. It doesn’t matter if you get paid a wage or not. Many times, the unpaid work is the most important.

Remember, God sees your effort. He loves when his children do their best to serve.

Let’s pray for those who are looking for a job. May the Lord’s providence deliver dignified work to them soon.

Thanks so much for reading, commenting and praying here.

May our good God bless us abundantly!

She’s right!

I received this strong comment today on one of our prayers…

“The Lord, Jesus Christ it’s something that everybody should believe and when they have questions like I just did it always ends up at the end if you want this help it’ll cost $49 and we will send you this that or the other. I have to tell you that is not true faith I noticed many Christian programs also they preach beautiful things but in the end they’re asking you to buy things I think that’s a disgrace upon Jesus. People like me that don’t have the money so we lose out on knowing everything we wanted to know and pray for that’s not through Jesus Christ I think you should put your head down and think of all the people that need it and can’t afford it amen.”

You know what? She’s absolutely right!

Prayer for a humble heart

Humility is a trait all of us should strive for, but it’s not easy. Too often we think it’s about behavior. The truth is that our actions are the results of being humble. We might be able to act humble, but true humility isn’t an act.

For the follower of Christ, a humble heart welcomes the Spirit of God inside. Like going to the doctor or dentist, this can be scary. Jesus is the Great Physician. He’ll never make a mistake with your heart. Letting Christ in to heal you is the path to true humility.

You can be economically poor and be arrogant. And you can have wealth and be humble. The choice is yours in the end. Are you going to let God in to do his good work?

A message and prayer from Vincent:

The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Psalm 51:17

And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Mark 2:16-17

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20

PRAYER FOR A HUMBLE HEART

Oh my loving Lord,

I’m not blind to my faults. I have plenty.

My wounds make me afraid so I get defensive, or I hide. This is not what you want.

Your Spirit is the Spirit of truth. And the truth is, my heart is broken.

Show me, oh Lord, the good part, as the broken heart is an open heart where your Spirit can enter and work.

Let me understand what it truly means to be humble, no play acting or falseness.

Instead, let me know that true humility is letting you in to free, heal and cleanse me – even if this makes me afraid.

Christ shows me his wounds. Let me show you mine.

Come to me, oh loving Lord, may I open myself up to you.

Set me free in humility. Free in you, to be me.

In the name of Jesus,

Amen.

Prayer to be able to change

When looking for a real change, it’s better to start from below. Jesus came down to our level, down to the dirt and mud that is human life. Knowing God also means knowing yourself better. If you recognize a need to change, then explore the source of the problem. For example, being aggressive, fearful, or controlling are symptoms of a deeper issue to be resolved. Get down into the dirt and discover yourself.

Jesus Christ was perfectly humble. The Spirit of God was completely free to do his work in Jesus. The humble heart is the heart that allows the Spirit to enter and work. This takes time. Don’t rush the process, and don’t ignore it either.

When he comes, the Spirit doesn’t need you to to hide the mess or straighten things up. He wants to see the dirt and clutter. Let the Holy Spirit clean the house of your soul.

Text of prayer to be able to change which inspires the idea of knowing God means knowing yourself and the humble heart let's the Spirit in.

Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.

2 Corinthians 5:17

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Matthew 19:26

Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Romans 12:2 

I can do all things in him who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13

Over 99% of the planet

Here’s a screenshot I took this morning of our website’s stats:

map 2017

It shows in which countries people have read our posts or asked for prayer. The United States has the most readers by far (nearly 1.5 million views all time).

We now have readers in over 99 percent of the countries in the world!

Plus, we get messages like this:

“The prayers are just so powerful. I love this page….God bless you…”

“I love this site you have helped me so often please don’t close it.”

“Couldn’t have come at a better time today, as my husband was threatening suicide because of depression and anxiety regarding our 4 estranged adult children. Thank you.”

“Thank you, your prayer filled my eyes with tears of relief.”

So much of this is made possible by our Patrons. These anonymous people of faith are a big reason for results like these. They have helped change and even save lives. Your prayers have been a big part of this too.

May the grace and love of God be poured out upon you and your families for 2018.

THANK YOU AND MANY BLESSINGS TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS AND PATRONS! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Prayer to be full of the Holy Spirit

God’s Spirit is the Spirit of truth. He is the giver of life. He reveals to you things you can’t understand on your own. The Holy Spirit makes you want to know Christ better – then your life produces good fruit.

It’s okay to ask for yourself first – to be full of the Spirit. That way God has more presence in your life. He guides your thoughts, actions and prayer. So later, when you face the world, you are nourished and strong.

Our greatest truth is Christ’s resurrection. This keeps us thankful and humble. Ask everyday to be filled with God’s Spirit and live completely in his truth.

If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

Prayer for when you feel like a failure

Today is not the last chapter in your life. When you feel like a failure, prayer is especially important. Every time you feel like you let yourself or others down – it can all be changed into something glorious.

For starters, hard times make you humble. This is Christ-like. This also lets you understand and comfort others in their struggles. This is loving your neighbor. Let the Lord transform your failure into something awesome. Declare his victory and move forward. It all begins by praising God!

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
