    If prayer works then why go to a doctor

    Prayer works according to the good sovereign plan and will of God. Prayer does much more than perform public miracles, it performs many unseen miracles. It demonstrates our limits and demonstrates our desire to rely on an all powerful God to affect lives and things outside of our control. It invites us into the presence of a Holy God on the basis of Christ alone, knowing that without Jesus, being in the presence of God in our sinfulness will only condemn us. It gives us an opportunity to wait and see the goodness of the Lord as He answers us in ways we never would have imagined. There is a need for doctors, there are many unseen miracles going on in the operation room. With each tragedy, pain and success, the hearts and lives of doctors, patients and nurses are all being affected. God has also given us science and this world for us to know much of it and how it works in order for us to worship Him in all his beauty. There is so much we can learn from the human body and how it works and how to heal it. God and miracles are not a substitute to science. We never stop learning about this world and the precise workings that God has put in place. The statement you made can be applied to anything in this world. If there's prayer, why is there a church, why do we have missionaries, why do we have engineers, why can't we just pray and have everything instantly happen the way we want it. The answer to that is, prayer is a means of grace that God uses to accomplish His will on the earth. It can be answered in many ways, but it is never a substitute for action. We pray and act. We pray and live. We pray and play. We pray and eat. We pray and glorify God. God wants us to persist in prayer as well. Never stop praying for your mom and loving her and being a Christ-like daughter to her. Your consistency, your tears, your prayers will all be heard by God and at the right time He will bring you healing and comfort and will wipe away your tears.

    Stuggling and in Need

    Hi Cameron, It's good you recognize your need to battle those sins and to seek counsel and help against them. I think the people most equipped to help you would be your local pastor or member of your local church. If you haven't, talk to someone in a leadership position at your church whom you trust, so that he can help you in your fight for holiness. It would be difficult to have accountability with someone online, it's much better in person because you will have to meet face to face with the person. Continue to pray to God, read your Bible and trust in the sovereign sanctifying purpose of the Holy Spirit. Here's an article from desiringgod.org that might help: https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/pleasure-set-him-free-from-sexual-sin I also recommend reading the enemy within by Kris Lundgaard. It is a book derived from John Owen's treatises on indwelling sin in the believer's life and the mortification of sin. Killing sin is different for everyone, some find instant success, others find themselves battling till the end of their lives. But as christians, we never give up on the fight against sin. There is a heaven and hell difference between one who fights his sin and demonstrates godly sorrow against his sin and one who is completely content in living a sinful life. I pray you're on the side of pursuing victory against sin. And your payer will be answered, either in this life, or the next. All who believe will be made like Him who saves. Be prepared for highs and lows and joy and sorrow, but never leave the fight for purity and holiness.

  8. Q4: How and why did God create us?
    God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.

    There are three persons in the one true and living God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are the same in substance, equal in power and glory.
