Please pray…

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Friend of this blog and a dear sister in Christ, Susanne Schuberth, needs our prayers. She is not doing very well.

Please remember Susanne, and ask those around you to pray that the Lord will take care of her and give to her whatever it is that she needs.

Thank you.

  1. First of all I would like to thank everyone for the fantastic support of your corporate prayers for me. I actually can feel it and our Lord comforted me so much.

    A thousand thanks to you, Steve, and to your wife – I felt the effect of your prayers immediately. I was deeply moved seeing this new blog post with a call for prayers just for me. Words can never express how grateful I am; I hope you feel it, too.

    But I feel right now that I want to tell what you are praying for.
    You are not praying because I would have some severe problems in my family (no – none), and I don’t have any troubles concerning a health matter. Frankly speaking, those things would be peanuts in comparison with that what my pain in fact is.

    I know that physical, be it acute or chronic pain, can be terrible, too. Moreover, the intense and severe feelings occurring when we have lost someone whom we have loved can be worse than the aforementioned pain.
    However, there is a pain – or better torture – which surmounts any human pain. And this is spiritual agony. Being attacked by Satan and demons is the worst you can experience. Difficult to describe, but it is as if Hell has opened and the “fiery darts of the evil one” (Eph 6:16) were drilled directly into your very heart. This is really hot as fire and causes unspeakable pains.

    I know those pains for many years, but this time I was extremely weak – no sleep, no hunger any more, and the permanent spiritual attacks of the darkness to deprive me of my faith and trust in Jesus alone. My husband Paul and our daughter Sarah, of course, were praying for me as always when “this” happens again. But I was so weak that I hoped you could assist us in this prayer struggle.

    And you did – thanks so much to all of you who read it!!

    “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” (James 5:16)

    It was the above Scripture that nudged me to seek for your prayer support, and thanks be to God that He helped the way He did by touching your hearts also. I have no idea how long this phase will last this time. It’s a constantly recurring of ups and downs, but since you prayed for me, it is way (!) more easier to stand. Thanks again, my sisters and brothers in Christ.

    Every blessing to you all from our loving God,

    Susanne

  2. Thank you, Susanne.

    We will regularly pray for you, for God’s protection from the evil one. And we know that He will protect you.

    So, know that long after this post has been replaced by another one…we are STILL PRAYING for you.

    In His strong grip,

    Steve

  3. Dear Steve and everybody else,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you (weeping again and again).

    Susanne

  4. I will be praying for you as well. We are in the peace of Jesus, let us pray and strive to live in this peace. Psalm 34 is a great psalm when one is in distress.

    God’s peace. †

    • Thank you very much, David.

      I just finished reading Psalm 34 – you’re absolutely right. “Seek peace and pursue it” (Ps 34:14). This helped me a lot!
      Paul also stresses the importance of this effort by saying,

      “Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.” (Heb 12:14)

      I’m so glad that I am not alone in this struggle, and that there are so much “everyones” (how Paul said) like you, David, who support me.

      God bless you,

      Susanne

  5. I do feel that all your prayers helped me because there are already longer periods of time now when I am dipped into His peace, joy, and love. But nevertheless, sometimes there are still sudden satanic attacks out of the blue. However, they occur less frequently than before.
    Moreover, I can realize a positive effect of this struggle: my faith is way more stronger than before. I did nothing to make this happen, but you prayed, and that’s the amazing result.
    What a wonderful God who promised,

    “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Mt 5:4)

    This is so true. Thank you to you all!! 🙂

    Susanne

    “I pray for you,
    you pray for me and watch God change things.

    Be blessed my brother,
    Be blessed my sister,
    be blessed wherever this life leads you,
    let me encourage you,
    let me speak life to you,
    You can depend on God to see you through,
    You can depend on me to pray for you.”

    (“Be Blessed” Lyrics, Bishop Paul S. Morton)
