Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Prayer for new job, wife very ill with cancer

Recommended Posts

Please pray that I find employment soon. My wife was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma in April and is undergoing chemo. I was her full time caretaker and now I must go back to work as financially we cannot afford me not to work, and we are barely making our mortgage. Cancer has devastated my family, my marriage and our finances. I'm a disabled Veteran with a Master's degree and I feel a great deal alone during this season...any prayer or help would be greatly appreciated. God Bless.

I’m so sorry to hear about your wife’s illness and your situation. This is a hard thing to go through. I know how difficult and frustrating it must be for you. I just said a prayer for your wife, asking the Lord to touch her with His healing hands and strengthen her. Be assured of my prayers for you to find a good job. We serve a compassionate, loving God who knows and cares about every detail of our lives. May you rest in the assurance the psalmist expressed when he wrote: “In the day of my trouble I shall call upon You, for You will answer me” (Psalm 86:7). Grace and peace to you.

David, I can't imagine the pain and stress you and your wife are enduring. The very least I can do is pray for you to find a job and your wife to heal. I did this right now. When I have dealt with some life threatening issues I have prayed and asked for others to for God the place me in the center of His will. Never has God Almighty failed me, nor will He fail you.

 

David what is your degree in, and what % disability are you and what branch of the service were you. I am also a 100% disabled Navy vet, so we have some things in common, but most of all its Jesus Christ. Dear brother if ever there is a praying group of believers this ChristForuns is the place. I look to hear from you soon. God bless you and your wife, and remember God is in control. God bless.

Psalm 37 : Vs 23-25

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

    • Predestination and prayer

      Those of us who are saved were chosen for salvation before the world was even created.   Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.   Ephesians 1:3-6 ESV   Since God has already decided who will be saved and who won’t there is no point in praying for the salvation of another person.  If he has been predestined for salvation he will be saved; if he hasn’t been predestined he won’t be.  Our prayers will have no effect.  This seems like an unanswerable argument against praying that someone be saved.  But Paul, the author of the above quote, wasn’t persuaded by it.  He prayed for the salvation of his fellow Israelites.   Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.  Romans 10:1-3 ESV   Why would Paul pray for their salvation if God had already determined whether they would be saved?  He understood that God doesn’t experience time the same way we do.  We only experience one point in time.  Some events are in the past and we can do nothing to change them.  Some are in the future and the choices we make now can affect them.  God doesn’t experience time this way.  To him the past, present, and future are all the same.  One of his attributes is omnipresence.  His omnipresence is temporal as well as spatial.  He not only exists everywhere at the same time, he also occupies all of time.   The things we do can only affect the future.  Our prayers can affect the past.  If you know people who are unsaved, pray for them.  God can answer the prayer you make now by selecting that person to be saved before the creation of the world.   Before they call I will answer;
          while they are yet speaking I will hear.  Isaiah 65:24 ESV
