I am sorry and this seems selfish considering there are people going through much worse but i have a brother who is really struggling right now.

He is alone in another state and in a really sad place right.

--- update. Thanks so much everyone! God bless you all.

Never a selfish request to ask for prayers fren. I and I’m sure many others got you.

No apologies. I reached out when my husband had a stroke in December. He almost died. I know God answered the prayers. This week he returned to work full time. That's one of the reasons I love this board. People care.

Prayers sent. Lord, look kindly on OP's brother: bless and comfort him, shower him with signs of your love.

(hug) I pray for peace and wisdom. If he's near one of us, perhaps we could reach out to him?

May the Lord uphold, comfort and inspire him; may God's love and peace be upon him; may he come to know the joy of salvation.

It is never selfish to ask for prayers. God wants us to come to him with everything that we are concerned with. Praying for your brother...May God surround him with His love and peace.

I pray that your brother will find peace, and contentment in the Lord. May God reach out to him in a mighty way, that he would know it’s only from a living God that loves him. Amen

Psalm 34:18:

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

It's NEVER selfish to ask for prayers. Don't be crazy. That's not how it works. You ask, and those who can pray. That's it.

Lord please give OneMoreTim3's brother some companionship. Please shine your light bright onto him and let him see through the darkness. Help him keep his body, mind and soul calm and at peace. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

They are. Thank you.

Never be afraid to ask for prayers! It is when people are alone and sad that a turning point can happen (good or bad), so I always pray for people to find the correct path and I pray for them to have strength, support and confidence to tackle any problem they may face. You are an awesome sibling!! Sending light and love.

CMAnon 9 points ago +9 / -0

Never apologize when asking for prayers. We all need them. I'll be happy to pray for you and your brother. God bless your both.

not selfish at all in my opinion...prayers that he knows it's always darkest right before dawn...and dawn IS COMING!

Does he know that the Lord is there with him?

He knows. He is being tested no doubt.

It's sad and trying to be far from a loved one when they need you.. Lord, You are acquainted with grief. Please help this man with hope and whatever he needs, as You know best. Give his brother peace also, let them comfort each other and be restored by Your mercy. Amen

Not selfish when you're trying to help family thru Christ.

NorthusMaximus 8 points ago +8 / -0

People without some big dramatic reason they need prayer are just as important as those who do. Day to day life, to "keep on keeping on" requires faith and it requires support from the Lord, because life, and wanting to continue to live it, can be so very hard. Compounded by loneliness. So sad. I am blessed to be praying for your brother and wish him only the best. Things like this make me think of the John Prine song where he says, 'you don't have to be alone....why don't you come on home?" If someone can't go to where their heart feels "home".. they need so much compassion.

This isn't selfish, we all have to look out for one another. God please uplift his brother and all of us in these difficult times. Provide us easy passage through them and the eyes to see your great gifts.

It isn't that we all have to pass through hardship and struggle in this life that we find comfort, its upon the discovery that such things are used to refine us, make us better than we were and to bring us together, so that what is above is made here.

That's the only way forward that makes any sense, for everyone.

It's never selfish to ask for help for another, fren. We are here to lift up our brothers and sisters. I pray that God will lead your brother to the peace that he is so desperately in need of.

Not selfish. Prayers made. Tell your brother one day at a time, no matter what the situation, one day at a time, my friend...

It's never selfish to ask for prayer, fren. Please don't ever, ever, ever, believe that! You've got lots of prayer team members here who are very happy to pray for you and your brother. God bless him and you, too. Please keep us updated. It's always good to hear back that things are going well. Blessings to you both.

Of course!

It's never selfish to ask for help, especially for another.

Never hesitate to ask for prayers. There is nothing selfish about it. Prayers sent.

Prayer sent.

PowderRoomPolitics 6 points ago +6 / -0

Praying for brothers and sister in Christ who live near by to reach out to him. Also praying that the Heavenly father would send him an sign of love and encouragement. Don't be discouraged, and my husband would tell you don't apologize for asking for prayer for any reason as long as you don't request us to pray for things that are contrary to Scripture. God loves to reach out to those who are in a sad place,

Doing as I type. It's never selfish to ask someone for prayers. I firmly believe they make a difference. Depression is very real and many of us deal with it daily or near daily..πŸ™

Done. Thanks for looking out for your brother

Eph612 4 points ago +4 / -0

Never selfish to request prayer - for yourself or for someone else. Asking God to reveal Himself, and provide purpose and direction for your brother, and peace for both of you. Honestly, I love that this is a place where we can feel safe asking, and that so many reach out to Jesus on behalf of others. It’s what we’re called to do. I feel blessed to be part of this community.
