A 15 year old girl still searching for many answers in this lifetime. I joined this website for encouragement by finding new people that care and face hard times also... people that I could pray with on occasion when needed. My email is email@example.com. because I often don''''t get the chance to get on the computer so I can only check my email.
JustinHello Rosemarie, i stumbled across profile after praying for another person. i would just like to say that i can see your hunger and your passion for God! it is amazing to see a young person living for the Lord and being the positive light for others!! We must lead by example, i pray for you that God will continue to give you the strenght and the endurance to trek on during times of personal tribulation. remember...Phillipians 4:13 "i can do all things through Christ who Strengtheneth me" :]
TroyRosemarie,Thank you for the prayer, and encouragement. It really sets my heart on fire when I see teens on fire for Christ. It really shows that even when our world continues to get darker, there are people committed to the Truth, and putting there all into He Who Saved us. Thank you again. Please dont be hesitant to let me know of any prayer request you may have. I barely made it out of high school, and I praise God for the experiences I had, because I feel more capable of relating to other young people. Praying for your week! May God bless your endeavors =)

TracyHi Rosemarie, I was just reading a little about you and just wanted to encourage you, my son isnt doing to good in his walk right now and I know as a mom that it is the most heartbreaking thing to go thru. One of the 10 commandments is to honor your Father and Mother, so your days may be long on the earth. As a mom, we give rules, discipline, boundaries because we love you, kids see it as punishment not as love, but really start looking at how much your parents love you and if you had children how you would raise them, what youd want to keep them from, the respect as a mom that youd want, there are so many kids who dont have parents that love them, and have boundaries and rules, and those kids wish they did. So Ill be praying for you hun, that the Lord will guide you back to your first love, and remember, no one else will ever care and love you the way a parent does.

U also mention about not being desperate for a friend I dint think that I am its just my mom has been riding me about making some so I try but it fails...!!!! I guess its kinda hard to make them to when she works at the school (christian school ) n everyone knows her here.....!

AmyYour prayer request for your friend Candice touched me because I was like her. My dad took me to church and I felt like I didnt belong there. One day it finally did click that I did belong, along with everyone else in that church. We are Gods children. I slowly started taking opportunities to get involved. At first it felt akward and I felt weird about it, but once I saw how kind the people were and the fact I was accepted for me no matter what - I did not feel out of place. Give her time. God may be working within her heart and it just may not be visible to you yet. Keep being an awesome, loving friend! I was that girl who felt so out of place in church a few years ago and now I reach out to my pastor or church community whenever I have a major life problem. My church is family to me now. Thats the way it should be. :)
My Youth Leader and Coach for the past 4 years is moving to another church. He feels as if god is leading him to do so, just as god led him here. Yet whenever he speaks of his new job and living conditions hes sounding unsure of somethings. Over and over he says hes placing it in gods hands to let his will be done. Ive never met a person so loyal to the lord my entire life and no matter what he did that light shined for us to see. Over 20 kids wrote LONG paragraphs on his fbook wall to show what he means to us and I cant believe hes finally gone. Theres a hole in my heart that I never figured a coach would leave ,but hes prayed over me, listened, and givin me advice anytime I asked for it. Please pray that god will guide him in his new adventure and that I can one day shine as bright as he did in our eyes. Lately, I feel as if every prayer I say has no answer.. but part of me knows god is still listening...
At one point in time I was ON FIRE for Jesus and I had that attitude of nothing stopping me.. joining the missionaries right out of highschool felt like a calling ,but I let that passion slowly fade away. Today, I recieved a check from a lady who met me while I was in that firey mood.. and attached to it was a letter that said "I know its not much but I hope you will touch many hearts along the way like youve touched mine." This really touched me. :( and it caught me offguard and I immediately knew I was wrong and I saw how far I had drifted. So, I watched some videos of spiritual stories for encouragement. Im only 17 years old everyone, and Ive made countless rededications from all the times Ive caught myself doing wrong ,but please please pray and continue to pray that this time will be permanent and I wont go back to old ways of thinking. Im close to graduating and having a life of my own and I want it to be a good one for myself and others around me..
I just wanna make a praise report.. Thank the Lord above for keeping me safe today!!! I cant even describe how happy I am he spared my life. On my drive to athletics at school today my brake line broke.. so I couldnt stop to save my own life but he did :D Im so thankful
Im really nervous about the school year. Normally Im looking forward to the upcoming school year but this summer just flew by beyond belief. (I think it was because I got a job. lol) But, anyways I attended this youth conference in Florida and it really changed my life and I was pumped to spread the word of god with all my fellow classmates.. but overtime Im sad to say I let myself drift away. And that spark of interest has dwindled down. Please please Im begging you to pray that I will have the courage to stand up as a child of god and not be intimidated tell the truth to others. Please ask god to stay with me through this entire school year that I may keep my eyes focused on him and to let his will be done. I believe in the power of prayer and I know that everything is possible through him. I realize it may be kind of weird to post contact information. but I could really use the encouragement of fellow christians through this. so if youre up to it email me at email@example.com. thank you everyone :)
Please pray that I do good at my 1st Job interview.. I really need this so I can help my parents and take responsibility at home. Its really the only place in town that hires students and anything else is in the next town over... which means unless Im able to work full time Id lose just about everything earned with these current gas prices. Please please pray that I can be more supportive in this household.
Please continue to pray that god will give me the words to speak and be courageous to spread Gods word and not let others ridicule get to me (Im reading a book called 23 minutes in hell and its so terrifying to think about anyone goin.. but sadly enough many people make that choice everyday. I feel like I REALLY need to help some people but dont know the words to tell them)
Please pray for a teacher by the name of Mrs. Pinky. She was diagnosed of cancer not too long ago. We held this volleyball tournament fundraiser in her name and made multiple hundreds of dollars. Shes the sweetest woman Ive EVER had the chance of meeting... I bet of you PLEASE lift her up with me. Shes so dedicated to helping others, just last year she adopted a girl (my age) and I can see her rub off on Nikki. :) Im just soo thankful to have met both of them in my life... I dont really know how to express my feelings about this.. Im joyful to have met her, yet terrified she may be lost...
I have 2 prayer requests. Both are in relation to each other. 1) Please pray for My church ,First Baptist Church of Colmesneil. This weekend we are hosting a youth retreat in such a small community and were already expecting over 70 young teens to attend. More and more are steadily signing up. I can only hope that many lives will be saved but by the power of prayer I know God will hear this request. 2) At this event after all is said and done, the church is handing out purity necklaces to those who feel like they are ready to take their walk with God to the next step. The necklace was supposed to represent how the one wearing it will follow gods plan to the best of their ability from that point on. Please, please, please pray that I will become sync with my walk with god. I want to accept the challenge of purity soo bad but Im not going to accept the gift unless I know its true for me. By wearing that piece of jewelry, Im representing the lord and I dont want my actions to go against that.
Okay, so Ive drifted farther away than I ever thought imaginable... I was on fire for god, then I started visiting this site less and less, recieved less encouragement that cause me to break down, The church Im forced to attend no longer seems to have that same feeling as before... There was a HUGE fight take place between me and my mom in a public area... that was the first time Ive ever been involved with cops.. Please please pray for me. That Ill start to find my way onto that right path once again....
I once again feel myself drifting away from the lord.. please pray for me. Each night im continueing to pray and ask for guidance and forgiveness but the following day I always forget to thank my creator for another day to be alive.. and dont go to him for every single problem in my life like I need to or used to....
Soo at school I hang out with a decent group of friends. Theyre not the drug addict type and weve known each other for as long as each can remember so theres RARELY any drama started between us. Before we were leaving for thanksgiving break I could tell they saw how Ive changed. and I feel like Im sorta inspiring some of them. I ordered a few items off of c28 and have been showing it off a lil bit. lol. It gave me an opportunity to talk about god without being completely random you know? and.. we even got to talking about the bible and they were all just sorta speechless how I knew so much about it.. I feel honored to be given an opportunity to talk to SEVERAL non believers and not be shunned out.. Please pray that I wont do anything foolish thatll change their outlook on such a lifestyle if possible. :)
Tomorrow is our 2nd worship wednesday. (A day students can gather around the flagpoles again and pray.) Please pray that our group will grow and more students will come out there. My school has been quite hectic.. with new teachers comin and going rapidly. 2 that cussed out students.. and 1 that have posted innapropriate pictures on websites. Its hard to find positive influence many say...
I normally attend this church First Baptist with a fairly large youth group for such a small town. Its like no matter what I do in life or what new churches I try I always find myself coming back to that one because theres youth that is so on fire for god. Then, I got a call from a church way out in the sticks. Possibly the smallest church Id ever walked into. And they asked if Id like to play piano for their congregation. Of course Id say yes because it felt like I was using god-given talents to give god back his glory in a way. But, now I feel myself drift farther away from First Baptist and theres a lot of sin at that small church that is swept under the rug. Theres only about 10 people attending now and I was the only kid. Now, as far as church development grows you cant rely on a few 80-90 year old people to stay around so you have to invite the young ones to build a future. I want to watch churches grow but then again I dont want to put my friends in a church that seems almost as if its corrupted like the word of god can be compromised. Because it cant. The bible says itself that any man that adds or takes away from the word of god. God shall add or take away from him. Please pray that god will stand by me. That his will be done whether it be to leave the church my mother loves dearly because of the members she knows and not the word preached. Or if I should quit all together the pianist job and attend first baptist since its whats been inspiring to me more. Please pray that what I need to do will become so obvious in my eyes and that Ill become even more dependable on god :)
Okay I finally got my friend Candice to attend church but then one of the members had discouraged her. They thought she was already a believer and said something about how if anyone that doesnt believe in gods way will be condemned to hell even if theyre nice to everyone around. Well candice wont show up since.. now today I asked her if she wanted to spend the night with me and said id be going to a different church tomorrow. and she basically said she doesnt ever want to go to church again.. what to do?
Please pray for my boyfriend Dakota. Friday he had surgery on his mouth and is having a hard time eating with all the stiches inplace where teeth used to be.. And hes one who will never complain but has lately so I know hes in immense amounts of pain...
Are there any like strong inspirational movies anyone knows of? Id like to get involved with this thing the church does every month when we have movie night.. Weve already watched letters to god and made many many people break down in tears.
For such an age Im told I do pray alot but tonight.. I know Im not the only one out here. Im asking everyone on this website to start a prayer chain for Matt. I cant tell you much about him because theres nothing on his profile cept for this one prayer request. He says hes lost his job, his wife and son, car, and friends. Lets give him encouragement and help him to realize he has family here. Please follow the link and write a prayer for him.. http://www.c28.com/CustomerProfile.asp?ProfileID=94460
Here lately Ive been having horrible horrible mood swings. Unfortunately they hit me when Im around the people I care about the most like my parents and my close friend Dakota. Later everynight Ill fall to my knees in prayer asking for forgiveness for not acting like a good child of god example. Like I said before... Id hate to think my actions taken would affect or make anyone else have 2nd thoughts about salvation. My lifes actions should set a good lesson if Im going to represent christians... I know Im young but I dont want to live like this. I dont want to ask for forgiveness everyday. Even though I know god forgives me, I know all the people that I could be hurting wont...
I just want to let all my brothers and sisters on this website that I know its sometimes strange or odd to see a teenager on fire for the lord. Many people dont take them seriously because of their "lack of experience" in the real world. I want everyone on here to know that when I say "I commit to pray", I really am. I litterally bow down my head and say a prayer outloud by my computer table right then and there for each prayer. :)
After 2 months of trying to convince one of my friends to start attending church they finally did. Her name is Candice Cashat and she always said things like "well Im just not a church going person". Everyday I pray that she will learn something new every time she walks through the doors of our church and something will touch her heart. I can tell shes still not comfortable with everything and I dont want to push her away by trying to get her involved... Im always hoping that shell soon find god as her savior and well spread the gospel together. Please pray for her. Theres actually several people Im trying to convince to attend on occasion but I have a feeling that if I get too many to attend at once then theyll want to just be with each other and leave the "jesus-freaks" alone. If theres just a few at a time theres noone to learn and be with except the Christians that are setting the example... Ive heard the quote love cant she taught, but it can be learned. How do you learn it? By showing it. Non believers sometimes think they HAVE to SEE something take place. Well, if you set a good example that can turn heads..
Every year our school , along with many others across the nation, have an occasion called "SEE YOU AT THE POLE" and "SAW YOU AT THE POLE" The 1st one is where many students meet outside the buildings by flagpoles and pray over everything their facing and their community, school, and people. Saw you at the pole takes place that evening after school where we continue to dedicate everything to the lord. in all honesty, after I started my day off like that, everything seemed to go by so smooth. It was stressfree and I pray everyday before school, after school, before bed, and throughout the day nomatter who is around. So, I know that such an occasion helped many others also. My coach came up with the idea of having such gatherings more often. So once a month well gather around the flagpole again and pray while holding each others hands. We call it worship wednesdays and had 70 people show up to our first one which is truely a blessing. Please pray with me that this group will grow and more lives will be saved each time.
The school I attend is a 1A. So, to avoid anyone from 6th grade to 12th grade feels like it is next to impossible because theres so few of us. Thats why drama takes no time at all to spread along with rumors. Theres a boy I dated for roughly 7 months. After such a time period you can imagine we did like each other WAYY more than we did the first day met. Well, we broke up after the truth broke out about him cheating on me twice. At first I didnt want to accept this but then he even admitted to it.... I prayed and prayed for answers. Finally, I felt like it was time we left each other. God pointed out everything that I first saw in him was false. (at first before I was saved I dated him because he went to church and seemed like a honest loyal Christian boy) With the grace of god I forgave him and offered friendship in return. Now, everyone I know says he gets mad at the sound of my name. I really wish he would meet me half way on this. I dont want to be drug back into a relationship like we had. Please pray this awkward silence will end... and I can win this friend back
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Its a very busy week at my school. (Homecoming:) Theres going to be movie nights, dances, bonfire, sports games, and a parade going on. Please pray that this year wont get too reckless like the past several years have been.
Were still not pulled together like a family should be. As of right now, Im the only one dedicated to finding a way to church reguardless if anyone goes and Im praying that soon Ill be persuasive enough to make everyone else want to attend. But I will praise god for what he has done.. Were actually all talking to each other again :)
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Please pray for my family that seems to be falling apart right now.. Even Im guilty of causin it also. Ive noticed I missed church sunday and it seemed as if my entire week was thrown off. But I attended tonight and I can feel things start to move around in my life again. : ) Its the greatest feeling in the world. (also, this may seem childish.. but as I was looking through the blowout sale I saw a new "across the city" hoody and it really stood out. I know that when anyone wears anything flashy at school like mine people will question the meaning behind it. I really hope my dad will approve of that purchase so i can have something else to wear that will give me the opportunity to talk about god in school)
Cross country is finally over and even though we all wanted to advance to the next level... I think we werent meant to. For once, were actually able to take a break and let everyone heal up. I dont know what the future holds.. All I know is we ran our hearts out and came out short so theres a chance if we would have traveled to run the next week then wed become far more injured. :) The volleyball team is pulling back together and several are starting to show great amouts of improvement along with football.
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Please pray for the athletes at Colmesneil High school. For every team of every sport at least half are injured right now.. (Except for the HS Cross country girls who ALL have an injury. one has torn abs, one has to have surgery on a knee AGAIN, one is ALWAYS lightheaded, one has shoulders that constantly pop out, and the last one just cant hold down food anymore) Nothing was caused by recklessness but Just from unfortunate events that have taken place over through the year. Were just a small 1A school already please pray for everyone to be cured
Hes still as strong as ever and is constantly trying to find new ways to reach out into the youth. Tonight he hosted a movie night where we all watched letters to god under the stars. :)
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Id like to ask everyone to keep Reagan Sewell in your prayers. Hes the greatest coach I could have asked for. He took a big risk moving from a town where he knew EVERYONE to a place where he believed God needed him. Now, not only is he teaching students and coaching atheletes. Hes taken the job of Youth leader in our local Church. Hes such a blessing in my life and Im sure in many others whether he realizes it or not. The most amazing trait about him is how hes not afraid to show his faith. He writes scriptures on our boards in the lockerrooms for motivation. He occasionally closes us out in prayer and ALWAYS prays over us before games. I hope and pray that he will stay good and well enough to continue to change lives for many years to come.
Thank you very much :)
Today at school I approached 2 people to invite them to church. People you wouldnt except to come at all but one agreed willingly and another is sort of edgy. I know thats not many at all but its a start. I can feel my courage and boldness build up.
Here recently my mother purchased me two necklaces from this website that had bible verses I hold very close to my heart. I wear it around proudly and feel a piece of excitement when anyone reaches for it to read it. Its a great way to start up a conversation or invite anyone to church. Im hoping there will be a few items on my wishlist that Ill save up money to purchase that will have the same effect as the necklace. :)
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Ive noticed many adults overlook teenagers and their problems because theyre young. The reality is theyre faced with many issues that are in need of solving also. My name is Rose and I attend highschool in a very small unknown town. People really seem to have lost their morals. Theres several homosexual children in most grades that consist of less than 50 kids. Theres been a teacher that would bring up buddah. Most students minds are corrupted with dirty thoughts or jokes they hear from their classmates. I know this is nationwide. (Probably worldwide) But I am asking for my fellow christians online to pray for me. That Ill have the courage to stand up for my beliefs that I know are right.
I've been on a Role for the lord lately. I'm so pumped! :)I've been a christian for quite awhile now but just recently became a member for this church that I've attended for quite some time already. Blessing after blessing have come my way. Opportunities that I just started paying attention to, I'm taking full advantage of. I'm no longer afraid to speak what my moral compass [bible] speaks. Until, just the other day I found out that there are a few athiest that attend my school that believe with everything they have that God is a fake. They don't intimidate me like I figured, but I still don't know what I should say.. Any advice? How do I approach someone like that? I'm scared to say the wrong thing that will make them be overly defensive and run the other way.
Alright, I'm working on a new website for our church here in Fort Worth, TX, USA. I'm not sure if the prototype I have up now is "too dark." Just gimme some opinions.. Haha.
Here's the current site - http://solidrockfamily.com
Here's the prototype - http://test.solidrockfamily.com/wordpress
Also, here's the site for our Youth Ministry. Let me know if it looks okay. - http://srsm.solidrockfamily.com
It's easy to give without love. But it's absolutely impossible to love without giving. Love takes trust and dependability. It's something that cannot be seen but is felt such as any other emotion. Today in church I felt my love for Jesus grow and couldn't help but that feeling of generosity grow on me. Anyone else know what I mean? It's like you can't have 1 without the other and there has been times in this life when I gave just to give.. But when I gave whole-heartedly I felt as if there's no limit... as if I got a new sense of pleasure from watching the happiness of others instead of anything centering me. That's the power of god. That's what I'd like to refer to as "giving god the glory" :)
We all know of someone who is a non-believer. They're the one's who may "KNOW OF GOD" instead of "KNOWING GOD". When I think I know someone I KNOW how they act and not just they're favorite foods and color. When I KNOW someone I've been around them and not just taken the word from someone else. Well, God is exactly the same. Almost everyone has heard of him because he's on our currency or because there's churches surrounding them, or you hear and read about him on the internet. Until you admit to what you are and start living the life of a Christian you haven't changed.
Have you ever said something or given good advice to someone. And when you said it and finished you were thinking "woah where did that come from?" Let me tell you something. That was God moving through you.
I was walking through the library at school and there was a girl everyone picks on there. She feels like she's an outcast. I could see in her eyes that she was a lost soul because she's always walked on and never had a sense of direction. At that point in time, I didn't care who was watching, who was listening. I started to walk towards her and told her "I'm praying for you." It stopped her dead in her tracks because she never saw it coming. The look of anger went away and she looked puzzled for a moment. All she could say was "wow.." Right there in that library I invited her to church. Later she said "You know people never take the time to talk to me like you did. I've never met someone who truely cared"
If you ever told someone youre praying for them. And say it with meaning. Watch God go to work right then and there. He did it for me. And if you're anything like me you'll see once you tell one person and you see the miracles start to take place in their life, You'll want to tell another. Then, another and another. It's just a few words that could lead to something great...
alright, so the question was brought up. joshua and i wanna know your answers! my pastor and i have already talked about this.
if you sin, get into an accident and die without being able to repent from recent sins, do you go to hell? or sheoul? purgatory?
does Jesus' blood cover all sins past present and future? if someone believes in Him, then falls away and dies what happens?
(not gonna lie, i really wanna know daniels answer :) )
I think when youre saved youre admitting to what you naturally are. A sinner. By doing this you're not going to live a perfect life afterwards. You're still human. Prayer is the key to everyday life. My coach always says "when all else fails cry out to god" I believe after being saved you can drift away from God because that's the whole point in rededication. (For those that have accepted him previously but let sin build up)
&& Joshua I don't think you will be doomed to hell if you die in your last sin. It's not like you knew your time was up. Now I'm no bible scholar but I think god will look into your heart whenever the time will be and say whether you've lived a life for him or against him. Then, disreguarding that sin or giving you one last chance to repent of it he'll choose where you're worthy of staying.
Would you change something about yourself even if the thing you wanted to change has always made you who you are, unique, and it was just the way God created it to be. It wasnt a medical issue, or anything like that. If you had always had this one imperfection about yourself, for your whole life up until now, Would you change what God created for you, if he gave you that oppurtunity?
