I'm Matt, to put this simple i am having problems with my body, i don't want to go in specific, and do not want to be selfish and pray only for me. My prayer for this is whoever reads this is going to get return for themselves, and the power for the holy ghost to fill you reading this to be of good spirits because the Lord is here, and he will be with you through spirit, don't doubt and think that all prayer is vain. Because seeking the Lord for the spirit, draw close to him and he will draw close to you. And it is hard for me...

My prayers have seemed vain, actually i feel this right now writing this, repeated times i have dry periods of no sign of awnsered prayers, but all of the supernatural things that happened in random places, that are not well known, but people being filled with healing, and joy. It's there, so don't think all this church prayer stuff is buloni that people just do for sunday school with koolaid and crackers at vacation bible school....it has depth of an impact, i personally don't like prayer that is just said with empty words with no emotion, forced prayer. My personal way I pray is in private, where no one is looking, and believe me i've been in states of feeling im having a delusion of something that is not real, but i do it anyway, the reason is to make it a point to find God, even through dry periods of faith, and unawnsered prayers. 

Jeremiah 29:11-14:
  "11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 14And I will be found of you, saith the LORD"
James 5:7-11 
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. 9Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. 10Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. 11Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

this should give some hope to those in dry periods of nothing, and bad things will happen, im not being negative, but all this stuff going on in the middle east, and other parts of the world is they are suffering greatly...i get jelous seeing all my church people sit around laughing and acting spoiled with blessings, and then others who pray the same way, have it bad, all levels of it. It makes me mad....but thats how it goes....and don't let suffering bring your hopes down.

So, ending this, do not let disappointment ruin the faith, and keep searching the Lord, and prayer for healing for you. Seek the Lord with heart. And have a deeper feeling to find his mercy and love for his children and you.
