Now I am struggling to find a job!!

I even stopped praying because I know that God wont answer my prayers, I am always at church I participate in chains of prayers, sacrifice but still nothing seems to come my way!

MY friends hardly go to church but their prayers get answered. I am thinking of Stopping Church.Is God for real.Then why am I suffering? And why are most Christians poor?

pls help

It is you who is in control of your own life. Prayer is good, but thought and action on your part will go a long way towards making a better life for you. I suggest reading "Ask And It Is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Also, here is a website below that may help. You need to be happy, get into the vortex and changes will for sure happen for the better. The Law of Attraction is at your disposal and it's a lot of fun. And why not check out some of the postings here about manifesting....there are many! I wish you all the best!

There is a saying: “God help those that help themselves. The Bible teaches: Seek and you shall find.”

You say you stoped praying because you know that God won't answer your prayers? Wrong! God has answered every prayer you ever prayed and the answer is there imediately but you are so lost in your troubles that you can't hear what God is saying and you can't see what God is showing you. You listen to your mind instead that tells you how wreched and hopeles and useles it all seems.

God is there giving you love, light, hope and advice all the time but you are not listenng. In your depression you are so preocupied with your misery that you dont have time to listen to God. You are stuck in your darkness and cannot see the light God offers you.

You call and say God why have you forsaken me. That's not true for God could never forsake you for Gods within you. You always have all the love and light to overcome any obstacle life throws your way .

Before you do anything else you should acept the fact that you are owerwhelmed and need help. Aceptance is the begining of solving your problem. Learn to listen to what God is telling you and he shall lead you from your darknes into the light. God shall open new dors for you better than the ones you need to leave behind. He shall soothe your troubled mind and give you peace instead.

Gods language is symbolic so listen to your intuition for that is how God comunicates with us. Tell God your problem as if you were talking to your most trustworthy best friend. Know one hundred percent that you will receive an answer and an answer will appear. Maybe you read something in the paper or you get a feeling to phone someone that could help or you dream something significant. You will be led to your solution in the most amazing ways.

As for christians that are allways praying but are poor. I see that a lot amongst my christian friends. Not all are like that but those that are have a valid reason for being that way. If only they could see it. Their innermost belief is that the more they suffer the closer thy are to God. They subconsciously beleive that riches are a sin. They take subconscious pride in their suffering and not having thinking that they will go to heaven one day. If ony they knew that they are imposing this hell on earth on themselves.

Praying is very good if it is positive prayer. Pray in thankfulness for the good things you had in life and more will come. Pray in thankfulness for the sunshine and rain and flowers and all type of beauty and thank God everyday for the miracle that is your life and I can assure you your life will change for the better. Remember learn to listen to God and you will be fine.

This question assumes that we must suffer in life...assumptions are beliefs and as such are not truths.

Remember the first rule..."i am responsible for everything that happens in my life; whatever i choose to think about, bring my attention to, and feel, whether consciously or unconsciously, manifests itself in my life in some way or other.

Cute face god helps people that deserve it. Stop asking and start doing. someone around you needs your help. Try that and you will find a job. Help yourself and god will help you. Do you see people that always complain life is hard etc and they never do nothing for themselves or other people. Even if they complain all their life it will not change anything. Stop complaining to god and do something about it.
Push that wheel.
Experience and enjoy.

I think deserve is rather harsh. Wouldn't it be more like"god helps those that allow it"? CF seems to be blocked and not open to help or not really knowing how to get help.

(12 Aug '11, 07:09) ursixx

I agree, ursixx.

(12 Aug '11, 14:45) Maria 3

and now you find what i say harsh. but i find it even more harsh that cute face only pray and complain to god to solve problem in is life. and that he did not understand that he as something to do to help him self and help other (plant good seed) and the rest will follow.

(13 Aug '11, 07:18) white tiger

The best of man is like water, Which benefits all things, and does not contend with them, Which flows in places that others disdain, Where it is in harmony with the Way. This is why I think the WORD -Deserve- is harsh

Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

(13 Aug '11, 12:31) white tiger

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others.

He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed?

(13 Aug '11, 12:37) white tiger

27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

Give strong drink to the one who is perishing, and wine to those in bitter distress; let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more.
