Promises for special needs

Welcome to the section of promises:

When I was a teenager, I discovered that there is a promise for just about every need I had or others had. A pastor, Elder Glen Coon, shared how to do this. I listened and my parents bought his books. I discovered that if I repeated back to Jesus His words of promise in the Bible and believed He could answer this promise for me, that as I thanked Him for the answer, He gave what I asked for if it was in His will for me. Sometimes He waited to answer but He always answered. He helped me this way as I asked big questions like who to marry, what to do with my life and many other things teens worry about.

I took the promise, put my finger on it in the Bible, got down on my knees and told Jesus I loved Him and wanted Him to forgive me of my sins. I believed since He made me, He wanted the best for me.

Then I pointed to the promise and told Him since He said this, I believed He meant it and asked Him to keep His promise to me. Jesus likes that. He also adds His prayer to it and the answer comes. I have written out many of the stories of my prayer answers. Some things I cannot tell for the story involves other people who could get very embarrassed over their personal sins.

Do you have a problem you want promises for? Pray, open your Bible and read. Jesus will help you find just what you need. Maybe  I can help you find a promise that fits. Send your request to Dr. Rose at 

Look through the ones I have collected during some trials and challenges in my life.

From Steps to Christ p 100
Take to Him everything that perplexes the mind. Nothing is too great for Him to bear, for He holds up worlds, He rules over all the affairs of the universe. Nothing that in any way concerns our peace is too small for Him to notice. There is no chapter in our experience too dark for Him to read; there is no perplexity too difficult for Him to unravel. No calamity can befall the least of His children, no anxiety harass the soul, no joy cheer, no sincere prayer escape the lips, of which our heavenly Father is unobservant, or in which He takes no immediate interest. He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds." Psalm 147:3. The relations between God and each soul are as distinct and full as though there were not another soul upon the earth to share His watchcare, not another soul for whom He gave His beloved Son". 
Now I take everything to Jesus. I ask His counsel on things that seem too small. I am over 50 years old now and I have seen Jesus do some amazing things. I wanted a daughter for 19 years and finally in answer to my prayers He gave her to me. I prayed like Hannah prayed for Samuel. Finally after 13 years He sent me four sons.

Psalms 37:25 I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

To be "righteous" does not mean perfect.

  A saint is a sinner headed in the right direction. My relationship as best friends with My Forever Friend Jesus is just so special. It is as if I was the only one on this earth to get all His attention and love. God can do that for everyone because He is God. He can do that for you. Jesus has proved to me He can bring food for my children when we were out of work. Jesus proved He can protect the children He gave to us. Jesus always provides for ALL our needs. (Philippians 4:19) He is so generous, He provides more abundantly than we ever ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20). Because we return the tithe as a symbol of partnership with Him, and give freewill offerings, He gives more than we have room for and He rebukes Satan who wants to devour us. (Malachi 3:9,10)

  During trials, I trust Him like Job who was being tested. I want Jesus to be able to say, "Have you considered My servant Dr. Rose, she loves Me even if she does not have wealth, honor, or material things. She even loves me while she is sick and when she is discouraged." 

  I believe that when I am praying, Jesus adds His prayer to mine. His prayer is as strong and powerful as the mighty Amazon River. Jesus knows my needs and I ask Him to pray for the things I really need. As soon as I wake up in the morning early around 3 or 4AM, I tell Jesus thank you for the good night of rest. I tell Him how much I love Him. I ask for Him to place His guard on my lips and prompt me to better actions if I am in danger of bringing dishonor to His name. I ask for wisdom (James 1:5). I ask for forgiveness of my sins. I tell Him I want to be a laborer for Him. I want to work with Him helping others see His love and justice and mercy.


I have been tested sorely. Finishing medical school and family practice residency I purchased a retiring doctor's  family practice on time payments. I was immediately tormented by the remaining elderly doctor partner. Over 6 months time, I was physically shaken by the shoulders, threatened to have my nose smashed, and then threatened to be shot with his gun. I lost terribly in my business as I had to move and practice elsewhere.  He was found to have a brain tumor and was happy that I would pray for him. That doctor died in an accident on his own farm when his tractor upturned on him. This doctor hated religion and said there would be no religious materials brought into the office for patients to read. I dropped the law suit on him and prayed for his salvation and forgiveness.

 Then in a short time, I gave birth to a young boy born before his time and deformed. We had a house fire, and the family pet was run over. Loss after loss came to us. Through it all, like Job, I said that even if God should see fit to let me lose everything and die, I would still trust and love Him. At the end of my rope, I hung onto Him. He gave me comfort and courage for each trial. Daily I began my day with Jesus and kept track of the promises he comforted me with so I could comfort others. Jesus gently wiped my tears away.


I want to pass the great test soon to come on all living on this earth. Jesus says that if I pass this test of obedience over His commandments, keeping His 7th day Sabbath, I can be sealed with His name imprinted in my mind. I want to be sealed by God.

"And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." {Mar 164.2}
This is the test that the people of God must have before they are sealed. All who prove their loyalty to God by observing His law, and refusing to accept a spurious Sabbath, will rank under the banner of the Lord God Jehovah, and will receive the seal of the living God. Those who yield the truth of heavenly origin, and accept the Sunday Sabbath, will receive the mark of the beast.... "{Mar 164.3}

God has a promise and a remedy for every problem anybody has. Look at these examples:

Jesus takes me in his human arm, while his divine arm grabs onto the throne of God. There is power and comfort in His arms.

"Ask in my name," Christ says. . . . Christ is the connecting link between God and man. He has promised His personal intercession. He places the whole virtue of His righteousness on the side of the suppliant. He pleads for man, and man, in need of divine help, pleads for himself in the presence of God, using the influence of the One who gave His life for the life of the world. As we acknowledge before God our appreciation of Christ's merits, fragrance is given to our intercessions. As we approach God through the virtue of the Redeemer's merits, Christ places us close by His side, encircling us with His human arm, while with His divine arm He grasps the throne of the Infinite. . . . {AG 85.4}
Yes, Christ has become the medium of prayer between man and God. He has also become the medium of blessing between God and man. He has united divinity with humanity. . . . {AG 85.5}
Pray, yes, pray with unshaken faith and trust. The Angel of the covenant, even our Lord Jesus Christ, is the Mediator who secures the acceptance of the prayers of His believing ones. {AG 85.6}  Amazing Grace  is a book written by a favorite Christian author,  Ellen White.
