I just knew that someone has been praying for me

And those prayers have been answered. Have you ever been through a dark moment in your life where you're loosing faith, you're utterly alone and are groping for a hand to lift you up into the light? I have been through this lately where i could not stand up for myself, and could not even muster a simple prayer because i was both depressed and angry. I was helpless and confused for several days, and then i talked to my mother about everything i've been going through and she assured me that they will be praying for me. I did not count on that for the mere reason that i was beginning to lose hope and i just couldn't get a grip on my own faith. Then the next day, i woke up, smiling and feeling energized for no apparent reason. My entire day went so well, and in the late night, i realized that my blues disappeared and i am back to my normal, happy self again. I knew then that they prayed for me and those prayers have been answered. I believe that when we could not anymore pray for "help" there is always someone who would do that for us. It's like i was dying, bleeding and someone dialed 911 and helped me. Now i am back on my feet, and back to the light. I thank God for life. I thank God for people who pray. Have you had a similar experience as well?

Oh I am very very happy to hear that my friend, I think we are the same in some aspect, and what you have experienced I did before I got out of it alive and happy and yes my mom too helps a lot. I am not that religious type but I was raised to have faith and there were some points in my life that I feel so low and I just rest inside a church and cry there for 30 minutes, the next thing all my questions were answered. I am really happy for you and I hope everything will be good from now on.

Prayer could be cathartic but at times when we could not even pray, God is still there. And in amazing ways, He moves people to pray for us and the end result is a revival of our faith. We cannot really fathom the power of the Divine but it is enough to just believe. Thanks for your response my dear.

Hi pinky, I have been in this kind of situation in that I feel so depressed, angry and helpless too. And then after a few days I feel the opposite. But it never got to the point of me losing faith and thank God for that. I'm not a religious person, but I do pray every night and thank God constantly. I am so happy to hear that you are happy now and that you are back on your feet again. I hope that you will feel happy and be healthy all the time. Thanks!
