Betsy Kurtz
I Need A Friend!!

I need your prayer in my life. My prayer requests are not as serious as a lot of others, but I don't think that means they are any less important. Please read the description below to find out what to pray for.

I need your prayer to help me during this time of my life. Here's my situation. I am 13 years old and in the 8th grade. I've never had that many friends. But recently I was selfish and foolish and made some AWFUL mistakes ruining the friendships with my four best(and only) friends. Because of my mistakes, I now go through the school day saying not a word unless called on by the teacher. I need friends. Everyone needs at least one friend to talk to, and I have none. I am trying my best to live my life as Christ wants me to live it. After those AWFUL mistakes I made, I rededicated my life to Christ and have never again(since then of course) done any of them. Sometimes I fail to live the way Christ wants me to, but we all do. My email is I am a very shy person and do not know how to make new friends. Please pray!!

Betsy, don't be afraid to make amends with those friends. If they are unwilling, pray to God to open their hearts to the light of His love. I have done this in the past with people who act like they hate me for no reason at all, and within weeks, even days of praying this, all of a sudden, that person will come up to me and say, "I am so sorry for the way I treated you, I was insanely jealous of you the minute I saw you and I don't even know why, but for some reason, a few weeks ago (!!!!), I just realized that you are a kind person who never did anything bad to me, you were kind to me even when I was absolutely terrible to you, and I just want to say I am sorry and I would like to be friends with you from now on." I can't tell you how WONDERFUL it was when people who hated me suddenly started loving me, because they had previously gone out of their way to hurt and slander me. Try the prayer, Betsy, it WORKS! Another prayer you might try that I love to do is to hold the Bible in your left hand, hold your right hand over the Bible, and pray, "Dear God, please answer my question," then you ask Him your question, say the Lord's Prayer, then open the Bible up and read the first verse your eyes fall upon. I ALWAYS get exactly the right answer, and it brings such joy to my heart to be talking directly with God. I take my little mini Bible with me wherever I go, read it while riding the bus or when I am feeling down, and it always lifts my spirits. Try reading the Psalms, they are especially comforting and angels will gather around you when you do. You will feel their presence as "goosebumps" when you suddenly have a moment of realization that is actually your angel or even God Himself whispering what you know to be true in yor heart of hearts and you suddenly get this wonderful shivering shudder all over. The first time you acknowledge it as God or your angel, the shivers become even more wonderful, washing over you like waves of pure love! Try it whenever you want, and know the presence of God wherever you are, whenever you want! Being full of God's grace will make it easier to approach your friends with apologies and help ease the pain and forgive them if they decide to turn their backs on you. Build a relationship with God and Jesus, talk to them as if they are right there in front of you, because THEY ARE!!!!!! THEY HEAR YOU!!!!! Look for signs that They hear you, AND YOU WILL SEE THE SIGNS AS CLEAR AS DAY AND BE FILLED WITH JOY!!!!
God Bless You and remember, when you pray for someone, an angel goes and sits on their shoulder. You will have many angels sitting on your shoulders soon!!! Amen, Selah!!!!
