A Message From Joel Osteen

So, I’m sitting here going through my email and come across today’s inspiration message from Joel Osteen.  I know that this message was meant for me and what I a going through right now in my job search.  My heart is crying, but my head keeps reminding me that God is in control, He has something for me, His desire is to bless me and in His time it will all come to pass.

Without Wavering

Today’s Scripture

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23 NKJ).

Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria

God knew there would be times when we would be tempted to waver in our confession of hope. Maybe you are believing for something and you’re starting to think, “Is this really for me? Will this really ever happen?” If that’s you today, remember, He who promised is faithful! And His faithfulness doesn’t depend on your ability to figure it all out. His faithfulness doesn’t depend on the plans we can make or the scenarios we can come up with; He’s faithfulness depends on His Word which never changes! Declare His Word and hold on to your confession of hope today. Be confident that God can make a way when there seems to be no way. Even when your mind may waver, don’t allow your confession to waver. Declare that God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Declare that He Who began a good work in you is faithful to complete it. Remember, there is power in your words and power when your words are in agreement with His Word. As you hold on to your confession of hope, you’ll see His faithfulness, and you’ll move forward into victory in every area of your life. 

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your faithfulness. I choose to guard my confession, and I will declare hope in Your Word. I trust that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf and thank You for victory in every area of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen. 

( I am always more than happy to pray for anyone that reaches out to me via email, or leaving a comment on my site, and you can also click HERE to ask Joel Osteen and his prayer team pray for your needs as well.)

  1. I myself i don’t happen to understand my family members in terms of togetherness for love towards each other seems like a nightmare,differences brought by the hatred inside their hearts.I&my two brothers are opharns left by our parents under their care,support&protection but it happens we live a life full of confusion since we don’t understand what, how they want us to be from depending on them for support.Pastor Joel i want you to pray for my family at large for i believe there is power in prayers&i believe we’ll have a breakthrough to my studies in college supported by well wishers on sponsorship&my brothers at school,financial stability that we may never lack under the Lords word for i hold on to the confession of hope&i bellieve HIS working behind the scenes on my behalf as i thank the Lord for victory in every era of my life.May God continue using you to bless others.Amen

  4. Dear sisters and brothers in christ, my name is Victoria Duru and I am a mother of four children and my family and I are in dire circumstances.We are requesting for an avalanche of powerful prayers from every christian that receives this.I will tell my story one day which started about 8 years ago and it has been a ride that is strange but very true.All the angels in heaven will testify to my story;the angels in the coldest part of antarctica, in the deepest part of the ocean,in the wildest part of the forest,in the hottest part of the desert will attest to my sufferings and every pain and humiliation we have been through.Pray that the God that spared Daniel in the lions den, that spared Heather Mercer and Dayna Curry from the talibans and the God that protected Nelson Mandela in prison for 28 years in jail will spare mine and my children’s life.I hope God keeps me alife to give my testimony.

    May God bless you as you read this letter.

    Sincerely, Victoria Duru

  13. Dear Joel, please pray for me that God will send me many foreigners coaches to assist me personnaly like Esther at the Harem, to help me getting the maturity appropriate to the Greatness of God in me, so that I will reach the circle of the great and powerful men and women of God; so that I will reach the bright future He has prepared for me.
    More than 7 years ago, God has promised me this by many prophecies:
    “I will lead you by roads you’ve never travelled; I will turn your darkness into shinning light. I will make rough country smoothe before you. Foreigners will serve you and take care of you. You will see your descendants and through you my purpose will succeed, and I will give you a place among great and powerful men. I will give you a new life. I will turn your shame to honour and all the world will praise you. I will make you famous throughout the world, I will give you honour and glory. The nations will see you victoriuos and everyone who sees you will know that you are blessed.”
    I am 36 years old and still single. I’m waiting for God’s promises about my descendants. Please pray for me that the Lord will send me the unique person, the holy great and powerful men He desires to be the source of my progeny. I need His Grace to accomplish miracle into my life. I know that 2010 is MY YEAR!!!!! the time of my restoration. I feel it, I believe it and I confess it everyday that now is my payday. Thank you!

  14. This guy(Joel Bruce)fell in love with me. At first i did not accept. i told him about God s will and all for which he said he also knows God has a plan for everyone s life. Later i accepted him ONLY DUE TO SYMPATHY coz a girl had already cheated him. After i accepted he was very happy but after some days he broke up with me telling me that he is not suitable for me. Recently i came to know that he is severely addicted to drugs and leading a sinful life. Please pray that he should be delivered from such evil practices, change his ways and come to an intimate relationship with Jesus.

  15. My problems seem quite trivial to others but I am in pain emotionally. Have been rejected several times by the same man that I love. Each time I leave he puruses me comes back in my life and tells me that he doesn’t want to marry me. My self esteem is very low. Turning 41, never married, lonely. Pray for me please so that I can let this man go and build myself up. Pray that I accept God’s will for my future and not despair.



  18. Please pray for my Uncle Steve who has liver cancer. The cancer has metastasized and he’s in the hospital right now. his blood pressure is unstable. He also has scleriosis which is the reason why doctor’s cant give him medicines to somehow prolong his life. Please pray that we may have the strength to accept God’s will for him.

    Thank You

  26. I am looking for a prayer chain that will pray for some boys I know,my son (joey) (russell) and especially (Scottie) these are basically good boys but got mixed with the wrong group growing up. I love these boys and I truly know God can use these boys in his glory, musically inclinned and who the are good for the world and I know God can use them. they are from 17-18. my heart cries for these guys. my son had a good start but a girl came along and turned his life around,back to marajuana and beer I don’t know what else.I hurt so bad from this. I bought him a bible and he was reading but I don’t think he does now.I know God is able to do anything but my faith feels a little let down but with other christians praying it helps build my faith and hope that God WILL get the guys. My needs are great in my family. all dramatic and fussing ,cursing , most of the time and I know God is not happy with this. Well Gods knows all my needs without putting on computer. please pray for my whole family Judy
    and I thank God for the answer before it happens………..

  27. Joel,
    Greetings. I get your daily messages, which are truly inspiring. Daily on the way to school I read your messages to my children. God is good. I trust him and his wisdom. I felt compelled to write this prayer request to you. I work for a Christian Children’s home / fostercare agency. My wife is disabled due to Rheumatoid pain, we took over my father-in-law’s home and expenses as his healh has diminished greatly, we have 6 children the 2 youngest are developmentaly delayed as they are 18 and 26, last year due to a series of extreme medical bills from heath etc we had to file bancruptcy. God know that has blessed us greatly as I have survived 3 major conflicts as I used to weigh 403 lbs and had gastric-bypass, a rt kidney removed for cancer, and had both knees replaced. Due to the enormous bacruptcy we lost our vehicle. We have been using our daughters truck as she moved away to a ministry center. She is now back and needing her truck back of course. I am priviledged to work for an agency that puts a high priority on God, children, family, and their employees. We know that God is working things out. We need prayer from all that will trust and believe as we are in need of many miracleas. We have been living month to month I make decent income but never have enough. Please I seek prayer from those who will pray hernestly and seek God. Please prayer for my father-in- law’s health, my children, mine and my wife’s time as I work many hours,leaving her with many responsibilities. I am blessed that our children pitch in to help us. I ask that you partner with us in prayer. Please pray for our agency, children, families, and staff we work with. God Bless you. Thank you for being there as an ambasador for Christ.
