Are You Childless and Praying for a Baby?

Are You Childless and Praying for a Baby?

If you are, then perhaps you can relate to Lorelie Zablan’s story.

Lorelie could not count how many times she had prayed and hoped for a baby. When she and her husband married, they wanted to get pregnant right away.

But, after six long years of trying, the couple still remained childless. They eventually found out that Lorelie has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) which prevented her from conceiving.

“The egg cell doesn’t multiply; it is not enough for me to conceive. I was also thinking, what if my husband looks for another woman because I cannot give him a child? I was so scared,” Lorelie shared.

All her horrors came to life when her spouse confessed that he was having an affair.

Scared, frustrated, and devastated, Lorelie spiraled into depression. She couldn’t help feeling that she failed as a woman and as a wife.

She recalled, “It came to a point where I asked my husband, ‘Am I ugly? How could you do that to me?’ He said the problem was not me. But when you’re in that situation, how else would you think? I didn’t know what to do.”

Lorelie got an answer while watching The 700 Club Asia.

Inspired by the encouraging prayers of the hosts, she got in touch with the CBN Asia Prayer Center. She poured out all her emotions, hoping that one day, her miracle would come.

“I texted my prayer requests to the Prayer Center. I was praying for a baby and asking God to restore my marriage,” Lorelie said.

The prayers from the Prayer Center inspired Lorelie so much that she wanted to share the comfort she received. Partnering her prayers with obedience, she decided to donate 500 pesos every month to the ministry. She also learned to forgive her husband.

“God helped us fix our marriage,” Lorelie said. “My husband asked for forgiveness and showed me that he regretted all his actions.”

Two months after she watched The 700 Club Asia, Lorelie became pregnant!

She gave birth to a healthy baby boy and named him Elijah Dave – a symbol of God’s hope and strength in their lives.

“God surprised me! My husband and I burst out crying. It was an unexplainable feeling. Even though we had problems in our marriage, God still blessed us with a child.”

Lorelie once longed for a baby. Now, her heart is overflowing with the testimony of God’s miracles and blessings!

She continued, “When I saw my baby for the first time, I could not contain my happiness. I felt whole. Nothing is impossible with God!”

Waiting is not easy, especially when it is beyond your control. Thankfully, those who wait and trust in God will have the strength to press on.

Don’t give up on your miracle. Keep on praying, believing, and standing firmly on His promises!

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

If so, then you are at the right place.

Merrie Sarmiento has found the solution to all her problems, and she will share it with you today.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

Growing up, Merrie never experienced having a complete and happy family. In hopes of having one, she married young and decided to build a family of her own at the age of 19.

It seemed like a dream come true, right?

Absolutely. Until the reality of life started to unfold right before her eyes.

“I was full of fears that time – fears about my childhood experience and fears about my life now that I have my own family. My husband and I were not ready,” Merrie confessed.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

Thankfully, her scared and confused mind found solace when she chanced upon The 700 Club Asia.

In one of its episodes, the hosts prayed for someone who is struggling and has so many questions about life. She did not hesitate to join in that prayer.

“I felt relieved while praying with them. I said ‘Lord, now I see You’re with me all along.’ While watching The 700 Club Asia, I saw how God helped and loved many people,” Merrie narrated.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

She surrendered all her fears, even confessed her sins and anger, and said, “That’s when I felt peace in my heart.”

Soon after, Merrie and her husband joined a Bible Study – a huge step of faith that allowed them to grow in their newfound relationship with God. All is well and sailing smoothly.

However, things went south when her husband flew to Taiwan. Their smooth-sailing marriage hit a huge boulder. Calls became less frequent. Their relationship went cold.

Merrie’s suspicions grew, and it came to a crushing end when she saw a picture of her husband with another woman. Miles away from the man she loves, she did not know what to do.

Like Merrie, are you also dealing with a problem that is beyond your control?

How do you cope?

Sinking slowly into despair, she texted the CBN Asia Prayer Center.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

“The Prayer Center encouraged me amid all my troubles. Their prayers were a huge help for me,” Merrie said.

Little did she know, she will discover that the solution to all her problems is only a prayer away.

God started to transform her husband’s heart. And as Merrie experienced the saving love of Jesus, she also learned how to forgive her spouse.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

“God answered my prayers. He found a church in Taiwan where God changed him. Our communication was restored. Our marriage was transformed, as well as his relationship with our children. God’s love is so great. It’s good to forgive because God forgave us first,” Merrie ended.

Having experienced the saving, comforting, and transforming love of God, Merrie is confident that He is the solution to all her troubles.

“God is the solution to all my problems!” she ended.

Are You Looking for a Solution to All Your Problems?

Are you experiencing pain, troubles, or discouragement?

Know that God is only a prayer away. He may not magically solve all your problems instantly, but He will give you the strength to continue even in the midst of adversity.

Call upon the name of Jesus – the only name that brings miracles and wonders.

“Whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (John 14:13-14 NKJV)

How Tough is a Teacher’s Life?

To Helen Cava, teaching is a challenging yet noble job.

Nothing beats the sense of fulfillment knowing that her profession helps mold the minds of the future generation. If you are a teacher like her, then there is a chance that you feel the same way.

All is well inside the walls of the school until she found herself in a tight corner. While her personal life was falling apart, she wondered how she can keep teaching.

“We had to borrow money every time,” Helen recalled. She tried to settle their debts but because her husband had vices, they could not make ends meet. It became a cycle until one day, their debts piled up.

As if it was not enough to push her into depression, she found out that her drunkard husband had an affair with another woman. The noble teacher instantly became the talk of the town – shame and pain crept in her heart.

“Every time I went to school to meet my class, I was overwhelmed. The parents talked about me, they said I had a good reputation but now it’s ruined,” Helen lamented.

Without anyone to turn to, Helen spiraled into grief. As she cannot take the burden of their debts and the pain of her husband’s betrayal, she decided to end her life.

“Before I took the pills, I hugged my children who were both sleeping. I did not cry out God’s name. I just took the pills. Then my whole body felt numb,” Helen cried out.

If you are in the same place, don’t lose hope! You might be a step closer to your breakthrough!

Thankfully, God saved Helen from that harrowing fate. But her unsuccessful suicide attempt only pushed her further to the dark side.

Angry, ashamed, and hopeless, Helen suddenly remembered the CBN Asia Prayer Center. She reached out through text and was surprised that there are people out there who are willing to comfort her. A pastor from one of Prayer Center’s church partners visited Helen and introduced her to the saving love of God.

“The pastor told me, ‘Helen, I was sent here because God has a plan for you.’ Then he shared with me the verse Jeremiah 29:11,” she said. That meeting changed her life and led her to accept Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.

Helen remained as a public school teacher, but her whole life transformed when she surrendered it to Jesus. He helped her overcome their debts and softened her heart so she can forgive her husband. She received a new hope and a future, a new perspective in life.

“Ever since I started going to church, I felt at peace. Thank God for Prayer Center!” Helen said, smiling.

Do you feel like your whole world is falling apart despite your sacrifices as a teacher? Are you struggling with depression right now?

Here is God’s message for you today: there is hope.

Helen is just one of the many Filipinos who were rescued from grief through prayers. She is one of the many teachers who found hope in Jesus and discovered that all things will eventually work for good to those who love Him.

Believe that God can do the same for you.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NKJV)

This Teacher’s Appreciation Week, we want to appreciate, honor, and encourage teachers like you through prayers. Call us at 8-737-0-700 or email your prayer requests to prayforme@cbnasia.org.
