If you want God to help you in your struggles, you have to surrender all to Him. And I do mean, ALL.
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. " (Matthew 6:33)
God is not a genie to be thrown "wishes", where if granted, you would go on your merry, but still sinful life. God wants you to seek Him. To know Him. To trust Him. How do you do that? Spend time with Him everyday in prayer, devotion, song and in the Bible. God sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross so that you may not perish. All you have to do is respond, repent and believe. (John 3:16 and 2 Peter 3:9)
"If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10)
