I am a Catholic and I have been blessed with many good things in my life. I love God and know he is real.
I have failed him many times, giving in to temptation. As a result, I believe that I have contracted an STI. He sent me warnings beforehand, which I chose to ignore. Please pray for me. I have started going to church again and praying to saints such as St Jude, St Rita and Jesus Christ. I want this to be gone. And I want to feel clean again.
Please pray with me and offer any guidance you might have for my situation. I beg God to show me the way to eternal life. I have so much love for people in this world. I now need some from you. Please pray for me and others who have sinned against God. I am very scared.
Catholic Don’t be scared, i believe that God will surely forgive you if you turn back to him because he will never give up on you. once again I’ll pray for you, so dont be scared. God bless.
Hello Hopeful Believer,
I want to say that God is merciful and will do miracles in people’s lives but remember pray in the name of Jesus Christ he is the only one that can heal you for his stripes we are healed. Matthew 18:19 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on Earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” Also: 1 Peter 2:24 “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness– by whose stripes you were healed.” Repeat scripture out loud and pray pray pray, fasting is good too in the name of Jesus Christ! 😀
Thank you John and Mimis. I can’t tell you how much your words have helped me. When you feel as alone as I do, you need all the support you can get. I will keep you in mind in my prayers too.
My friend you do not need to beg God to show you the way to eternal life. He gives it to you freely. Jesus says “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me” It is a gift…undesereved but one he freely gives to those who believe in him. you want to feel clean again but God sees you through the shed blood of Jesus. if you choose ( and it is a choice) to receive his grace then you are by definition already clean. He gave him who new no sin to be sin for us (you) so that we may become the righteousness of God. Righteous means to be made right with God. the way is narrow and can easily be missed but for those who choose to take it they are justified ( JUST as if you have never sinned).
Thank you Ajwood. I will keep your words in mind. I definitely need God’s grace to help me move forward.
God bless you 🙂
I encourage you not to be afraid, my friend. Isaiah 43:25 says, “I-yes, I alone- am the one who blots out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again”. 1 John 1:9 says, “but if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong”. These scriptures declare that God has literally removed from His own memory our old life of sin.
You also need to know that your salvation is NOT based on what you have done in life. There is nothing you can do to earn it. The bible says it is a free gift. No human traditions or rituals will get you into heaven.
Romans 10:9-10 says, “for if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved”.
God isn’t looking for a reason to keep you out of heaven. He has made it easy for you to get in. God loves you so much and have already given you freedom through Jesus Christ. Be encouraged, my friend.
Thank you so much for your response. Also, I was blown away by your story when I read it. You are a true inspiration. I’m so happy to hear that God was able to help you.
Since posting this, I have re-connected with God and now feel that he is on my side and is working with me. I am currently going through something else which is extremely difficult which I desperately need God’s help with. Please pray for me.
Dear Hopeful believer, Praise the Lord!
I have already prayed for you and the prayer was heard by Jesus, our Father. Loving brother, Father has instructed us to ask anything through the name of His son – Jesus. He never said come through St. Jude, St.Rita.
You have said:
“I have started going to church again and praying to saints such as St Jude, St Rita and Jesus Christ.”
Jesus is the Lord, the most highest Lord…Take refuge in Father, His son and His Holy Sprit.
Don’t rush to church, take time to read the Bible – start from old and go to new testimony; and then decide which church you can go. Ask Jesus to show you the right church. Amen.
Thank you for your comment and prayers. I will continue praying to Jesus!
I will also pray for your father. I saw your comments about him on another thread.
I’m so glad I found this site!! It’s a great support network 🙂
Dear Hopeful believer
