I Desperately Need Prayer

So it has come to this...

I don't often ask for prayer from this website, but I'm in desperate need of it now. I'm extremely depressed myself, and my faith is at an all-time low. I know that there's a God, that Jesus is the Son of God, and that He died on the cross for me, but I have lost faith that God wants to even consider listening to my prayers. For me recently, the heavens have been like brass and iron, and I'm despairing.

I went and formed a prayer group on -banned site- that initially really looked like it had the LORD's blessing, but it really isn't bearing much fruit, and I've just dealt with the second brouhaha because I'm the admin who formed the group. I am furious and angry at one individual in particular who mistakes spiritual pride for power, and I'm seriously fried at him for pulling his prideful abuse. One member left because of people ganging up on her, and in the end I was more or less helpless to stop it unless I started cracking heads, issuing warnings, and what have you--she left the group before I could really rescue her from the bullying. I'm very angry that people didn't listen to me, and my flesh wants to beat these people mercilessly for what they did. I'm trying to put to death the deeds of the flesh, and not overreact, but I won't lie to you, people, I'm livid over what just happened.

I'm also despairing because I feel that the LORD isn't listening to my prayers anymore, and I'm also despairing because my mother and father--who didn't care thing one about me when I was growing up, because they idolized their alcohol and their domestic violence--won't let go of me at age 48 and won't leave me alone, can't stop trying to control me. As much as I've tried to forgive them, I can't do it--not in my strength. I've cried out to the LORD to help me forgive them, but so far, nothing yet. [WARNING: DO NOT LECTURE ME ON FORGIVENESS. I **KNOW** I'M SUPPOSED TO FORGIVE THEM, THAT'S WHY I'M ASKING FOR PRAYERS FOR GOD'S DIRECT INTERVENTION IN MY HEART.] I'm requesting prayer so that God **GRANTS** me the ability to truly forgive, that He grants me the healing and the strength to do it. Unfortunately, a final showdown is also going to have to be necessary for any sort of real forgiveness to take place.

I'm despairing that God hasn't stopped the slow-motion disaster at Fukushima.

I'm despairing that the HEAVENS ARE BRASS AND IRON RIGHT NOW, and I can't seem to find my way out of this.

I'm despairing because I look over the wasteland that is my life, and wonder why God doesn't just take my life, and end my misery **right now**, because all I see is mental suffering, and I would just as soon die. No husband, no answered prayer, no family to call my own, only waste, waste, waste, waste...

I'm trying to switch the focus off of myself and onto Jesus, but I won't lie: it's been almost impossible, and I can't seem to do it for any length of time.

Plead my cause, oh LORD, with the demons that strive with me; fight against them that fight against me.

Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.

Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say to my soul, I am thy salvation...

In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

I understand your frustration and disillusionment over what appears to be a dry and barren end to what you hoped would be a blessing to many. I want to encourage you not to give up on what you say you believe. Sometimes we have some unresolved issues that often stop us when we face stern obstacles in our pursuits for excellence. One thing for sure is that we will never be able to please people all the time, therefore we have to know in our hearts that God loves and approves us, and just do our best to seek Him and succeed in what He has for us to do. And while we want to be accepted and approved by others, we cannot rely or put any faith in it. Ultimately, we have no one to blame but ourselves. Please reaffirm your commitment and trust in God's sovereignty and let Him guide your next step. Anger will only make you miserable.
