Lord, I Have a Problem

Father, I have a problem.
It’s weighing heavy on me.
It’s all I can think about,
night and day.

Before I bring it to you in prayer.
I suppose I should pray for those
who are less fortunate than me–
Those in this world who have
hardly enough food for this day,
and for those who don’t have
a roof over their heads at night.

I also pray for families
who have lost loved ones
in sudden death,
for parents whose children
have leukemia,
for the many people who are
dying of brain tumors,
for the hundreds of thousands
who are laid waste with
other terrible cancers,
for people whose bodies
pray for othershave been suddenly
shattered in car wrecks,
for those who are lying
in the hospital with agonizing
burns over their bodies,
whose faces have been
burned beyond recognition.

I pray for people with emphysema,
whose eyes fill with terror
as they struggle for every
breath merely to live,
for those who are tormented
beyond words by irrational fears,
for the elderly who are wracked
with the pains of aging,
whose only “escape” is death.

I pray for people who are watching
their loved ones fade before their eyes
through the grief of Alzheimer’s disease,
for the many thousands
who are suffering
the agony of AIDS,
for those who are in such despair
they are about to commit suicide,
for people who are tormented
by the demons of
alcoholism and drug addiction.

I pray for children
who have been abandoned
by their parents,
for those who are sexually abused,
for wives held in quiet despair,

beaten and abused by
cruel and drunken husbands,
for people whose minds
have been destroyed
by mental disorders,
for those who have lost everything
in floods, tornadoes,
hurricanes, and earthquakes.

I pray for the blind,
who never see the faces
of the ones they love,
or the beauty of a sunrise,
for those whose bodies are
horribly deformed by painful arthritis, for the many whose lives
will be taken from them today
by murderers,
for those wasting away
on their death beds.

Most of all,
I cry out for the millions
who don’t know the forgiveness
that is in Jesus Christ…
for those who in a moment of time
will be swept into Hell
by the cold hand of death,
and find to their utter
horror the unspeakable
vengeance of eternal fire.
They will be eternally damned
to everlasting punishment.

Oh God, I pray for them.Strange…I can’t seem to remember
what my problem was,,,,,,
In Jesus’ name I pray…Amen!

  1. For the grace to actually consider others in a time of need is a miracle in and of itself! Great prayer!

    I continue to pray for your divine and SUPERnatural healing!!

    Oh Robin, bless you for thinking of us when you are in the midst of your own crisis. Thank you for keeping us updated. I am continuing to pray for your well-being. This prayer is so meaningful to me. I just recently got over a flu (it’s been two weeks) that is still causing headaches. Had a spinal headache because they were looking for meningitis. I have never been in so much pain in my life! In the midst of my pain (I couldn’t leave my bed) I thought and prayed for all the people I knew (like those in the prayer) that had illnesses worse than mine, esp. those that don’t know the loving grace of our Abba, Father. I knew no matter what I could trust Him, whatever happened. That was so comforting.

  3. Beautiful prayer! When we place the needs of others before ours, he takes care of us. Servanthood.

  5. That’s the power of intercession. Somehow it makes you feel better when you pray for others. And you know that God’s going to take care of your needs, too.

    I love it!

  6. Robin,

    You are in my prayers. Thank you for sharing that beautiful prayer. The Lord can provide supernatural healing. Claim your healing….He was pierced for our transgressions and crushed for our iniquities, and by HIS stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:4-5)

    As you seek the Lord consider taking communion at home daily, as a remembrance of what His body and blood have done for you(us). For it is His body that brings healing and His blood that cleanses and brings salvation, and seals the covenant between God and His people.(Matthew 26:26-29)(Luke 22:14-20) As you thank Him daily for your healing, take communion and remember Him.

    Shalom and blessings,

  7. Dear Robin,
    Im praying for you, by Jesus’ stripes you are healed!!!

  8. Robin, I’m one who would run to God on behalf of everyone else’s requests.. and never get to my own.

    Please Robin – take the time to lay your burdens on God’s shoulders – don’t carry the burden yourself – don’t worry about praying for other’s – you are very important right now.

    Heal us O Lord and we shall be Healed, Save us and we shall be saved, for You are our praise.

    As we prayed the Amidah on Shabbat in our congregation, I lifted you up to our Great Physician.

    hugs

    You may feel that your physical weakness is a problem, but God doesn’t. He uses us where we are. Weakness just makes us more aware that we need to depend on God.

    I am blessed by the verses you share.

  10. Robin,

    You are such a wonderful light in this world. Stay strong. I am praying for you and will request prayer on your behalf from our church congregation of 6-7000 people.
