Prayers for you always in MISSOURI! Hello, everyone! My name is J. C. I'm 25-years-old and I live in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. I have a heart for ministry (mainly a ministry of helping/blessing others as much as I can), prayer, prophecy, Bibical counseling (which I like because it lets me help people), fellowship, true worship, blessing Israel, etc. I've grew up in a Christian home, but I have become "luke warm" in the recent years. I simply got lazy and too busy to care about God. I still loved God and believed in Jesus, still went to church and everything, but I let my personal relationship with Him slide. I used to have dreams, visions, prophecies, etc. Now, I am longing for that day when God restores me to where I was before, and takes me even higher. So, that's kind of where I am with my Christian walk today. I'm not a baby Christian, but I feel like it sometimes. Please bear with me. I'm kind of new to this site. I joined in September 2007, posted once or twice, and then I forgot about this site. I won't go into all the details, but 2008 has been a really rough year for me, and I've lost every friend I thought I had (even the Christian ones). So, not only has been a rough year, but I've had to face it alone (in terms of earthly friends), but God has always been there. I've dealt with my church splitting up, lost job, etc. That is how I've lost my so-called "friends." Anyway, last night I was praying to God, asking Him to send me some people that I can fellowship with. God told me to check my E-Mail. I had a letter from the Jeff (the Admin?) wishing everyone on this site a Happy Thanksgiving. I clicked on the link in this E-Mail and found this site again. I've read some of the newer (and older) posts, and I got so filled with the Holy Spirit just by reading this forum. People here seem to be very loving. Anyway, I don't what (if anything) God has instore for me with this site. I hope He can use me here to bless others, too! Even though this has been a hard year for me, one simple fact has not changed: God is good and He has not left me. One of the things I like to do is pray! I love praying for people, with people, whatever! So, if anyone has any prayer needs, feel free to send me a private message! I am will be praying for everyone on this site! Prayer for everyone in Kansas City! God bless you all as you all bless God! Happy Thanksgiving!
