EVERYONE IS FAMILIAR WITH STRESS.
PANIC OR ANXIETY ATTACKS
Anxiety or panic attacks can be caused by a consequence of circumstances and relationships in our lives. In small doses, stress can benefit us, but when it is too great, it affects our physical and mental functions.
“Save me, O God,
for the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in the miry depths,
where there is no foothold.
I have come into the deep waters;
the floods engulf me.” Psalm 69:1-2
Many of us have felt stress as a result of the pressure of expectation—of not being good enough: good enough to make the team or good enough to be popular. When we fail to meet these expectations, disappointment can be crushing. Sometimes pressure or stress continues no matter how hard we try: it is simply too overwhelming.
To make matters worse, we may know that we are in this awful position because of our own fault. Some of the pressures of life could have been avoided with better personal choices.
We can also experience stress of waiting for God to meet His own expectations:
“I am worn out calling for help;
my throat is parched.
My eyes fail,
looking for my God.” Psalm 69:3
To begin with, we should never make important decisions when we are under pressure. The ramifications can affect the rest of your life.
Asking for help may seem very humbling. We have to acknowledge our personal inadequacy.
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5: 6, 7
We simply say, “Help me Lord, because you are a God of mercy.”—“in Your time”
“But I pray to You, Lord,
in the time of Your favor;
in your great love, O God,
answer me with Your sure salvation.” Psalm 69:13
David chooses to find his release from stress by praising God. This is another way of saying that you trust God to solve your problem.
“I will praise God’s name in song
and glorify Him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30
HOW DOES PRAYER WORK?
Will we ever know how prayer works as long as we live in this earthly existence? Any scientific explanation remains quite elusive. Scientists simply don’t know. This question is similar to the riddle of how our conscience works. These are the deepest questions pertaining to God. Albert Einstein once admitted that “Science without religion is lame.”
DIRECTING YOUR PRAYERS INWARDLY: MEDITATION
Secular meditation or mind training, based chiefly on the Buddhist model, has become widely popular. It is used in stress management clinics for corporate workaholics and even therapy for prison inmates.
There is a world community for Christian meditation founded by Dom John Main, o.s.b. With 200 associate groups in Canada alone. This movement exists in 35 countries today. This is not to be confused with sitting cross legged in an incense-filled room.
A mantra is repeated silently or inwardly with eyes closed for roughly 20 minutes twice a day. The followers use an Aramaic word from the new testament: ”Maranatha.”, “Come, Lord”. Other believers use the word “Shalom”. Some simply use part of the words from the 23rd Psalm:”I will not fear, You are with me” or in a shorten version: ”You are with me”
By repeating the mantra in time with one’s breathing, one can calm the mind and express deep praise at the same time. Your will still have thoughts flitting in and out, but just keep gently bringing your focus back to your breathing. Tell yourself that God is with you now.
There is a real need afterwards to think about the information or ideas given as you listen. You ask God for wisdom and a sense of discernment to evaluate the “new ideas“.
God says that if we are tormented by fear, “this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect love. “ 1 John 4:18 We must thaw out with the perfect love, which is the grace of God. Read the gospel according to John. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verses upon arising: it is all about love and you will love it.
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.
Do Not be Afraid.
“I love you.
Do not worry about the future but be calm and walk with Me and cooperate with the graces I give you. Look at any beautiful spot in nature and its surroundings and enjoy the wonderful scenery. It was all made by the Father for you to enjoy.
I am taking you south this morning to a beautiful high mountain to await the rising of the sun. It is warm up here as we sit in this open space. We can see the trees below and the stream flowing by. This is an ideal place for contemplation and for thanking the Father for all He has created.
As we sit here in this deep silence, we can taste the peace that fills our heart. We also feel close to heaven on top of this mountain. See what is important in your life.
It is not money or gadgets but communion with Your Lord and Savior. You have to eliminate all the noise of the modern world and enter into this stillness surrounded by nature. It is good to get away at times and enjoy this peace.
You all have many hurts, fears, habits, false ideas, resentments, etc., which you need to get rid off in order to grow in union with Me.
There is much fear in the hearts of many these days. War can be one of the causes of this. Another cause is the fear of the future.
Fear is principally caused by Satan. He sows fear and confusion in the hearts of those who do not rely on Me.
If you come near to Me, My brother and sister, I will chase away fear. Offer yourselves completely to Me in contemplative prayer and let My peace and joy fill you.
Every person is in need of communion with Me. I am your friend who desires to speak to your heart. Through this deep communion I bring you close to Me and a strong bond of love will develop between us.
You will never be alone for I will always be at your side. Come and enjoy these precious moments of communion with Me every day.
Let us form a partnership today. Take My hand in pledge and let us meet in prayer every day. Do not be afraid, just believe in Me and come walk with Me.
You cannot give what you do not have. First come and be changed by Me and build up a strong relationship with Me and you will be able to pass it on to others.
Make the effort every day to come to Me in prayer so that your heart may be anchored in Me. It is through contemplative prayer, where you focus completely on Me, that you will come to know Me and a strong relationship will grow.
This is the pearl of great price: to have a loving relationship with Me. With that firm foundation, you will not stray far from Me. You will bring My care and My help to all those in need.
I will grace you with My gifts especially those of peace and joy. You will never be alone because I will be with you. I will give you My strength to overcome any obstacle in your way.
Give Me your hand and I will guide you. You will no longer have any fear but love will dwell in your heart. I love you.”
The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:
Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.
“BE NOT AFRAID”
The phrase, “do not be afraid” is written in the bible 365 times a year – once for every day. That is a daily reminder to live every day being fearless.
Why should we have no fear? It is the light that “shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” John 1:5. The power of Christ is greater than any evil which man could or should fear.
Contemporary man finds it hard to return to faith because he is afraid of the moral demands that faith makes upon him. And this, to a certain degree, is the truth. The Gospel is certainly demanding.
THE POWER OF FEAR
President Roosevelt spoke about fear itself in 1933: nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror that paralyzes us. He said,”the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
David, in his psalm, captured the immobilization of that fear:
“I will watch my ways
and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
while in the presence of the wicked.”
So I remained utterly silent,
not even saying anything good.
But my anguish increased.” Psalm 39:1-2
When we are threatened, fear clouds our judgment and can impede us from doing the right thing.
In the moment when you are fearful say: “In the name of Jesus Christ, I resist the spirit of fear. Thank You, Jesus”. Fear is not an emotion. It is a choice. Reject it. The devil does not flee until he is resisted.
FAITH IS THE FINAL INGREDIENT.
The key to the gifts of healing is one’s faith. People’s persistence proves their faithfulness. They believe that God has the answer to all their prayers. Persistent prayer is answered because those who believe actually expect to be healed by God, so they continually ask until they receive.
After receiving the beginning of healing, you must pray:” Lord Jesus, I love You; I believe in You; I trust You.
IT‘S ALL ABOUT FAITH
The person healed must continue to thank God for the continued healing every day until the total healing has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it (a minimum of once a day) by a FAITH breath prayer until the healing takes place; it is only 12 words:
LORD JESUS, I PRAISE YOU AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR HEALING.
Thanking God, before the healing happens, strengthens your faith.
Yes, your doctor will prescribe stress medication as a temporary measure, like Ativan (lorazepam), which is a central-nervous-system depressant, that tends to be addictive, but not in a low dosage. A stimulant medication, while dealing with depression, can offset Ativan, called Wellbutrin (Bupropion), which may cause insomnia.
The problem is trying to reduce the medication once you believe that you have partially solved your stress problem. How much easier it is to rely on the healing power of God!
To our friends who are Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon or Jehovah Witness:
To our knowledge, there is no one in your religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are warded off in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance. You still can be delivered from your attacks, but it needs that all important Christian to command all evil spirits to go to Jesus Christ who will dispose of them according to His Will and to never return .
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
