I really need instant prayer, as I’m struggling with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) which is a condition that causes digestion problems which then causes anxiety. I’m unable to go to places and had to leave school because of it. I have attended a work replacement but had to leave as well as my anxiety got a hold of me. I’m currently looking for a job as my family needs support but because of this condition I’m unable to do anything. I would like a prayer for healing and break thru. <3

prayers sent;

get OFF of man made poisons and investigate God's ways that He has
given us freely in order to heal ourselves by what He has provided/given to us...

two God given ways, 'Vermont Folk Medicine', and Jethro Klooss, 'Back to Eden'...

So sorry to hear, and I will pray for your healing.
Have you been tested for gluten intolerance? It's also possible to test yourself, and that is to eliminate all foods containing gluten for about a week. If there is drastic improvement...well, that could be the culprit. Also, to keep our gut healthy we need real food. Fermented foods and Kombucha (fermented tea) included in your diet can help. Certain meds (antibiotics) can wreck a healthy balance of the gut as well. I am not a doctor! These are just some things people I personally know have done to heal themselves.

Actually IBS doesn't cause anxiety. I can see anxious being a side effect if you have IBS-D, since "bathroom. NOW!" hits, but the irregular bowels doesn't cause it.

That said, how about another approach? There are two ways to make money -- get a job or start a business.

Job means boss wants you there at certain times of the day at regular intervals, which won't happen with IBS-D. (I have IBS-C, which is the opposite end then your side of this syndrome.) Starting your own business means you set your own hours, or simply work when you can at home. Bathroom is yours as needed.

So start thinking creatively. What skill sets do you have that other people would pay you to do?

Some ideas of jobs people can do at home include:
-- Webmaster
-- Illustrating
-- Writing
-- Typing
-- Marketing for small businesses.
-- Laundry folding. (They bring it, you fold it.)
-- Needlecrafts.
-- Call center work.
-- Affiliated marketing.
-- Blogging.

Really, it gets bigger than that, just come up with ways you can do something for someone else at home and they'd be willing to pay for it.

If you've got problems with digest, I recommend you look into oregano oil and detoxified iodine. If you find anxiety a challenge, look into an emergency essence such as bach remedy or a cortisol manager.

Lord please help this person with their employment and their health, give them the right knowledge and resources to put them a positive and productive path. Thankyou Lord, Amen.

So sorry you are struggling with these issues. Sounds debilitating to your routine. Lifting you up in prayer and trusting the Lord will answer according to His plans.

I’m so sorry to hear about your health issue, friend. I know how difficult and frustrating it must be for you. I just said a prayer for you, asking God to touch you with His healing hands, provide for all your needs, and surround you with His strength and peace. May you rest in the assurance the psalmist expressed when he wrote: “In the day of trouble I shall call upon Thee, for Thou wilt answer me” (Psalm 86:7). Stay strong in Him. Sending prayers & wishing you well.

I think you are probably trying to find a natural remedy but I'd like to share this info with you anyway. I suffered with IBS for years before my doctor took it seriously. About a year ago I went to the doctor with it and he give me alverine citrate. I can honestly say I haven't suffered much discomfort since. The commercial name here is Audmonal but probably different where you are. I've prayed for you.
