How can I encourage or pray for you?

Luis Perez

Listen, I know most of you don't believe in Jesus, and that's perfectly fine, but personally, my faith and relationship with God has been a huge encouragement and blessing in my life. I truly believe that God is real and he loves all of us deeply.

I thought I'd reach out to all you fellow anons currently on Jow Forums to see if anyone needs encouragement, advice or prayer.

"haha what a faggot, retard, incel, cuck, etc. GTFO of here newfag/lurker. This is not what 4channel is for"

Yeah, I don't really care. I've been on this board as long as anybody, I figured I go out on a limb and try something. We're all so miserable all the time, maybe for once I can be an encouragement to others.

Sorry you feel that way. I would absolutely never claim to have the answers to our hundreds of questions that seem to disprove God or his goodness.

All I know is that I personally believe that he's real, and that he cares for you, personally. And that I want to try and care for you too - so how has your week been so far, user?

Oy skip it if it's the only way for you to continue. Powering through it can put some interesting cultural perspective, especially with an annotated edition. Also the rest of the Torah will be of equal dryness.

No problem - life is hard, and honestly sucks a lot of the time. If we face it with shitty attitudes, what hope do we have to make it through? I feel like positivity is the key to surviving the SOCIETY we live in.

I wouldn't say I'm a nuts and bolts believer (there's an infinite amount of possible answers to any unanswerable question) but I no longer consider myself an atheist due to now understanding what it means to 'find God.' Basically, I don't believe Jesus was doing magic or that really any of the Bible stories are all that true, but despite that, I have found the Christian experience, the idea of a relationship with God, to be an immensely important one. Thus I try to walk with God so that God may walk with me. What does that make me user?
Also I've never felt comfortable praying. How exactly am I supposed to do it?

In my (most likely idiotic opinion, that you should take with a metric sized grain of salt) that just means you're questioning. You're on your own path - and God NEVER minds us asking questions or doubting him.

I can't just give you some perfect piece of advice that makes everything suddenly OK, but I would encourage you to focus on the relational aspect of Christianity. The same goes for your prayers. For the first two dozen times, it might feel like you're talking to yourself, but try and believe that God is hearing you and cares.

There's no script or type of words or way you have to speak. God just cares about your heart, he loves and he desires to spend time with you.

So, I still love God and Jesus, but bring myself to church. I get creeped out by church leaders and find fidelity to man-made institutions as sacrilege. It's a crazy contradiction for someone who still considering himself Roman Catholic.

How badly do you feel God is hurt by my absence from church?

Elijah Miller

But cannot bring myself to church (important word missing)

Leo Stewart
Leo Stewart

I personally feel that one of the many reasons God brought about the church is so that we would have a community of other believers to live with, talk with, and encourage and BE encouraged by.

If you ask me, God is saddened you are missing out on that aspect of life, but he doesn't resent or hate you for it.

I also 100% understand your apprehension and even disgust with the church. It repulses and saddens me how perverse and money hungry much of the church is. Rather than being a force of good and positivity in the world, the church has fallen into the same selfishness, greed and sin as the rest of the world.

The last thing I would encourage you to do is: if it's something you feel like you ought to be doing, find youraelf a church home near you. Somewhere where you can feel comfortable. I'm sure there are lots of things that you would not only GET from attending, but also lots that you could give and bless others with by being there!

I am a Christian, but I've been slipping for a while. I havent really read the Bible or prayed on my own more than a couple times in a long while. Depression has been really getting to me though, I would really appreciate it if you could pray for me. I hope it will help out.

Tyler Ramirez
Tyler Ramirez

Yeah, you got it user. I will pray for you right now. How struggled with depression a good deal myself, and its awful.

Just want you to remember that God doesn't judge you, hate you, or love you any less for "slipping" or not spending enough time praying or reading the bible. He simply loves you and wants to spend time with you.

Last thing I'm going to say is my total "mom mode" and that's simply to encourage you to drink plenty of water, get some sleep, eat some protein and try and get a little sun and exercise. I'm not great at keeping up on all of those, but when I do it is quite helpful.

I believe in you dude! I know God loves you and that things can get better!

Can you recommend any quotes or blessings from the Bible, that are similar to what Jackson (the Sniper) says in Saving Private Ryan? I'm an introverted gunfag, who just needs words of comfort sometimes (even though I'm Agnostic, and don't follow Christianity).

There's a neuro-imaging job which doesn't seem to require any prior work experience and only requires a BS in a STEM-related field. I majored in physics so it's kind of a weird fit, but honestly it would be nice to sink my teeth into a new topic like that, I'm a bit burnt out on pure physics (which I guess is partly why I'm a NEET in the first place).

Adrian Robinson

So, take this as what it is: the words and opinions of a (probably foolish) 21 year old white guy who lives in Delaware,

But no, I don't think God is ignoring you or hates you because you smoke weed or watch porn. We have a God who loves us more than we could ever possibly imagine. I believe that there is nothing we could ever say or do to stop God from loving us. He simply desires to spend time with us, just like a good and living father wants to spend time with his kids.

As to your question of why he hasn't answered or why he hasn't done the things you've asked him to do - I simply don't know. I don't think anyone does. There's nothing I could say to flat out prove that God exists, and that he is good. What I can say, is that I do believe he exists, and that He IS good. You may not hear him audibly, but there is a peace I've felt in my spirit when I begin to regularly go to God and just spend time with him.

Let me know if that makes any sense at all.

Nah I feel like he exist, at least, I do not think it matters if he is there he will talk to me but you say you have talked to him so I just want him to speak to me and let me know I am forgiven for what I have done.

I can not forgiveness from the people I have hurt I am trying to make amends and pray to God I break down in tears and prayers but he won't answer me. I feel like I gotta go missionary into the wilderness to hear him, I tried to sign up but they wanted to ask me about my separation from my spouse "no Biblical resolution" which made me mad but also made me sad I did not know how to respond to them so I stopped corresponding.

I don't know what to do in life man

I'm really sorry to hear about the experience you had with the folks about the wilderness missions - that's terrible for them to treat you like that.

As far as your first point, I just want to clarify - I've never heard an AUDIBLE voice form God. There's never been a time where I feel like I can hear him talking in my ear. I would describe my relationship with God a lot like my conscience - it's a still, small, quiet voice deep down in me. I don't have to say or do anything special, I simply have to talk, be quiet, and spend time with him.

The more you pray, the easier it will become. The first dozen or so times you do it, it may just feel liek you're talking to yourself - it often still does to me. But the more time you spend praying and reading the bible, the more you'll begin to hear His voice more easily, and understand WHAT he wants you to do in life.

Lastly, I am sorry you have not been able to get the forgiveness you seek. I believe that God forgives you, and that he forgives everyone who genuinely seeks for forgiveness.

God will honor you for doing the right thing in wanting him, and asking forgiveness. I will be praying for you tonight my friend, I believe that things can and will get better for you!

Let me know if you have more questions.

Ok, OP here checking in

I'm heading to bed, as I'm a little wagie-barista who has a 6 AM shift.

I just want to say that I have prayed for each and every one of you that responded tonight. I can't promise that God will come through for you, nor do I have an answer on WHY if He doesn't.

But my hope is that this has been something encouraging to you all, and not something that has you leaving the thread feeling worse, or doubting God even more.

If somehow, the thread is still up by my break tomorrow morning around 10, I'll check in then and respond to everyone I'm able to. Anyone else that chimes in before then, know that I will pray for you once I see it - even if the thread gets archived.

Hope you all have a great rest of your week... please drink some water, get some sleep, eat some protein and for God's sake - take a walk outside!

Used to go to church as a kid, but then my family stopped. Became an atheist in middle school and just stopped caring altogether in high school. Tried taking the Christpill a couple years ago but fizzled out. Is there any particular approach I should take? Should I just start reading my family bible? Is there any way I should be looking at its contents?
