No Longer Feeling Hopeless or Suicidal, Freed from Addictions

Pastor Prince, I’ve been a Christian since I was 4 years old. When I was 15, I was on fire for the Lord and even prayed 3 hours a day. I heard from the Lord and knew I was called to serve in ministry.

But I began to have blasphemous thoughts. I struggled with them for months and even believed I had committed the unpardonable sin. This drove me deeper into despondency. No matter how much I prayed or how many pastors I went to for help, I just felt worse and worse. I thought God had forsaken me and that I had no hope.

The enemy continued to attack my mind constantly for 5 years and I thought of committing suicide. I ran from God and began to party and take drugs. I almost overdosed on drugs multiple times.

I barely graduated from high school but I flunked college. The overbearing thoughts were so torturous. I would scream and cry constantly and was almost referred to a mental asylum.

One day, I went home high on drugs and saw my mom listening to your grace sermons. I had heard about God’s grace before but didn’t know whether it was real or not. I wrestled with the message for a long time.

After watching your sermons one night, I felt hope for the first time. I asked God whether the gospel of grace was the truth and felt His strong presence in my room. Tears fell down my face as He revealed to me that grace is the gospel.

Since then, my mind has cleared up. I’ve also been completely set free from drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes. My life has been changed. I’m awestruck realizing that God had been guiding me to your ministry the whole time.

The Lord has also led me to pray for others to receive the revelation of His grace. Many of my friends have been saved and my mother’s life is being radically transformed too. God has called me to ministry at the age of 21. My life has never been more exciting and filled with purpose.

There are no words to describe this turnaround in my life. God has rescued me from the brink of death through your ministry. Thank you, Pastor Prince, for preaching the true, unadulterated gospel of grace. Jesus is my Lord forever and I know His covenant with me cannot be broken. All praise and glory to Yeshua forever!
