by Rex RouisIhope this does not come across as hard or religious but the purpose for this site is to help people pray for themselves, not to pray for them.
We pray for people. And other people who come to this site pray for people. We pray for each other and we encourage each other. That is what loving Christians do. However, coming to this site only to ask for prayer defeats its purpose. It hinders what God wants to do through it, namely, to get people to a place where they can stand up for themselves in God. Again, we will pray for you but sometimes you praying for you is the only way you will receive. That is the hard truth of God’s need for faith. Sometimes only you can do it because sometimes God requires you to do it.
God at times does bend the rules, that is called mercy. But the more mercy is requested the less it works. Mercy works best when one realizes their error and have decided to do something about it. They say, “Lord, I’m not going to let that happen again.” But over and over again does not work.
God is merciful, but His desire is for us to grow in Him. He expects us to learn about Him and seek Him. Not doing that and merely asking someone to do it for us is not obedience. It takes faith to receive from God. Again, God is merciful, but you cannot rely on His mercy all the time.
It is actually not prayer itself that moves the hand of God. God does not answer prayer itself. He answers faith. He answers believing prayer.
I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. Mark 11:24 New Living Translation
Therefore I tell you, all the things you pray and ask for–believe that you have received them, and (then) you will have them. Mark 11:24 Holman Christian Standard Bible
You can’t escape the need for faith by relying on someone else’s faith. Sometimes it works, but not always. Your faith will always work. Always. We need to do what the Bible says, to receive what the Bible promises. When we do what we are supposed to do then God does what He desires to do. Faith can be hard work, and He expects us to do it.
