God Please Help Me

Are you in a bad place and asking, “God please help me” or “God please give me strength”? Are your prayers falling on deaf ears? There are many times when we pray to God for something that is really important to us or that is urgently needful, and it seems as if our prayers are falling on deaf ears. “Why won’t God help me?” you wonder. The reasons why some prayers go unanswered is not always apparent. But one thing is for sure. So if you are asking God please help me, you should know If we ask anything according to His will, God hears us.

Jesus I need your help

“This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” (1 John 5:14 & 15 NKJV)

Notice that this verse is telling us that we can have confidence that God will answer our prayers, if we pray “according to His will“. So the next logical question would be, “What is God’s will”? If we expect to get our prayers answered, we must first fulfill several prerequisites. Here are some of them.

God Help Me

“When you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.” (James 1: 5-7 NIV)

Here the Bible is telling us that if we are double minded when we pray, we should not expect to receive anything from God. So what does it mean to be double minded? It simply means that when you ask God for something in prayer, you are hoping He will answer you, but you are not really sure that He will. That kind of praying is kind of like throwing mud against the wall, and hoping some of it will stick. Simply put, God will not respond to an ‘unbelieving prayer’. By this we know that if we expect to get our prayers answered, we must believe that God hears us and is faithful to answer our prayers. But we should also know that there are other things that can hinder our prayers.

“Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.” (Mark 11:25 NKJV)

God can only show us the same mercy and forgiveness that we are willing to have toward those who have offended or hurt us. If we are unwilling to forgive those who have “trespassed” against us, God will not hear our prayers, neither will He forgive our trespasses against Him.

Perhaps the greatest reason we do not get our prayers answered is that we ask God for the wrong things or with the wrong motives.

“When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives” (James 4:3 NIV)

Seek First The Kingdom Of God

God please help me. Why do I worry constantly? My life is a mess. I’m so unhappy. I lost my job…etc. God please help me now. How can you help me pray?

How often do we pray to ask God for things related to material gain, rather than for God’s plan for our lives to be fulfilled. Jesus said the following concerning our most basic needs.

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’For after all these things the Gentiles (unbelievers) seek. For peace of mind - why worry

your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and ALL these things shall be added to you.(Matthew 6:31-33 NKJV)

By this we know that if we will make God the first priority in our lives, He will make us His first priority. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8 NKJV)

All of your daily needs will be provided for, and God will have his eyes on you unceasingly.

“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” ” (James 5:16 NKJV)The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry” (Psalms 34:15 NIV))

Now here’s a surprise. Being “righteous” is not about being sinless, though that should always be our goal. Being righteous is what Christ made you when He bore your sins on the Cross. All you have to do is acknowledge  that fact, and it is accounted to you as “righteousness”.

And here is some more encouraging news. Jesus said that no one can come unto Him unless the Father leads them.

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him” (John 6:44)

The fact that you are reading this now, is a clear indication that God is drawing you to know Christ, and is inviting you to “draw near to Him”

  1. I'm a mess God I keep trying to do / say what is right. Instead I create enemys and my heart is heavy and sad on said:

    I’m lost. I need help at work. I need help at home. Work is difficult, I’ve been trying to train a new person to help me with my job as it is big and complex. She is not getting it, I’ve told the supervisor several times that it is just not working out. I feel like it is my fault the person is not understanding, I have tried different ways / techniques and she still is not catching on. I’ve asked the supervisor to help but no response. I love what I do and it is rewarding, but well some people are untrainable I guess

    • Turn all you burdens and worries over to Jesus now. Put it on Him. This is what He wants you to do. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 NIV. When you turn it over to Jesus, and rest He will make your crooked places straight. Stay in faith and trust the Lord.

      Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight Proverbs 3:5-6

      • I am a 67 year old woman who has had very bad luck with relationships. My first marriage lasted only one year and ended in divorce. My second marriage was a very happy one that produced five children, but ended when my husband died suddenly of a heart attack. My third husband dumped me one day without warning and has gone to live with his son and family. I am told that he is very very happy now.

        I have a few close friends who are very supportive – and I am thankful forth that – but it is not the same as having a happy marriage. Sometimes I feel such anger that I actually find myself yelling at God! He does not seem to be listening or answering my prayers….

    • God has given you a gift of knowledge and wisdom to not lean on your own understanding. Demonstrate to task to the employee and then have them demonstrate to us. The majority of people are hands on and the rest are visual. Also ask the employee to explain the process as they demonstrate it to you. Offend times the trainer/sender is unknowing not clear.
      May God continue to bless you and keep you.

  2. I’m so lost at this point. I need help with my housing situation. I received a 7 day notice to vacate. I’ve been here for almost 11 years. I have two daughters ages 10 & 2. My main concern is their safety and to be worry free. I ask for prayer that my worker understands my situation and allows me to reside elsewhere. I don’t want to have to resort to living at a shelter. I have nowhere to go. I trust that God guides me in the right direction. I pray for our safety and to live according to His will…Amen
