Prayer

Once a month we like to pause and open our hearts to one another.

How are you hurting?

How have you been blessed?

How can we pray for you?

Just comment below on how we can pray for you today. And then go and offer a prayer for the person who commented before you.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

    Please pray for financial provision for my family, and emotional well being for me.

    • 2

      Please pray for peace and God’s guidance concerning decisions to be made. I also have a private request.
      I am praying for you Barbie. Praying for our Lord to provide.

    • 3

      Father, You are Barbies’s Creator. You have made his/her emotions. These emotions have been wounded; they have been torn apart. Sinful, negative emotions have been cultivated into his/her life. I plead for You to release Your power into his/her life. Remove the sinful, negative emotions that resulted from his/her emotional wounds. Heal Barbie so that he/she can experience emotional health and wholeness (Genesis 1:27).

      Barbie I went to add my prayer and it is oh so the same as the prayers you need. I pray that the Lord will bless both of our families this day and all of the following days and that we will remain grateful and remember that it is truly He that provides us with everything we need. I pray too for your emotional well being. It is so hard to stand in faith when our spirits are sinking with depression. Hang in there. God is good and all will be well.

        Praying for you Barbie!

        Oh Karen, you have my thoughts and prayers. I have been where I think you are, on and off for over half of my life. You probably have read Romans 12:12, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” It can be so hard to be patient and I have no idea what you are doing for treatment but as He did for me, He will bring you through this. Offer your suffering up to Him. That is what he wants you to do. God bless and my prayers are with you.

  2. 9

    Please pray for God’s truth to reign in my heart, and for wisdom as I disciple young women and serve alongside my husband in full-time youth ministry.

    • 10

      Cassie, praying that God gives you the wisdom and the words for each young lady you have the opportunity to influence. I’m thanking God that there are ladies like you who care about our next generation and are willing to pour into them. God will provide when you are obedient. Thank you for being available to God.

    Just wrote a post with a big prayer request for a mother in my town that has a rare form of cervical cancer. The has 3 young children and the doctors don’t expect her to have much more than a month left. Here’s the link to the post. http://www.angelastrand.com/2012/07/untitled.html

Place angels in their way to help them get through this. Lord I ask you to protect the children from lasting effects and bring as much good out of this as you can.I trust you to do so much inn this situation, your loving daughter, amen x

    • 13

      Hi Angela, I read your post, and I pray for a miracle for this momma and her family. God is good! My sweet cousin just received an “all clear” from her cancer tests after a year of struggles. Praise God!
      The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. Lamentation 3:22-25

      Beth Williams says:

      Lord,

      Help this young mom of 3 children to be cured of her cancer. Shower this family with your grace, mercy and peaceful guidance as to the course of treatment.

      Help the youngsters to understand what mom is going through and bring to this family so friends to come alongside and be there for them!

    Catherine says:

    I’m speaking in church this morning about my missions work and I’m feel so uneasy because I need financial support but don’t want to ask. Please pray for me for guidance from God for what to share and the wisdom/words to say.
    If i don’t have the finances soon I will not be able to continue.
    Thank you x

      Alice Cover says:

      O, Lord, give your servant peace in her heart as she awaits the answer to the problem of needing funds for the mission work. Help her to rest easy and see you provide. God loves to provide by placing it on the hearts of people one by one. I ask you Lord to show her very soon how the provisions will come in. Confirm her in you will O Lord. And keep the flame burning in her heart for your work.

  5. 17

    Please pray for my husband who may be made redundant. I gave birth to our 5 blessing last Tuesday so the timing isn’t great. Please pray that we cling to the fact that God’s plan for us is good and he is the provider.

    I pray for Catherine, Lord please give her the right words. Lord please make your will very clear to her. May she follow in the path you are laying out. You say you will provide and I ask that you will show your provision to her today.

    • 18

      Daddy I pray for Amy today. Thank You for leading her to this forum and thank you for allowing me this opportunity to pray for her. Remind her that You are the provider and that You are stronger than any other enemies, be it sickness or financial burdens. Lord help Amy to live clinging onto Your grace and daily provision. Thank You for giving her the courage to ask for prayers here. Display Your lavishing and extavagant love, and seal in her heart Your goodness. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen

    Please pray for my youngest daughter Lucy (age 25) who longs to be married like her two older sisters. Pray that He would be her first love and that her earthly husband would follow.

      Beth Williams says:

      Dorothy,

      Praying for peace for your youngest daughter.

      God–please let the Holy Spirit indwell in this young woman–help her to realize you are to be her first true love. Give her spiritual guidance and women to mentor to her spirit. If it is your will that she be married–give her the one true man you have created just for her!

  7. 21

    Heart Broken Mom says:

    Please pray for me and my marriage. 3 weeks ago I caught my husband in a pornography and sex addiction. He is seeking counseling and getting help but I am left standing broken holding shards of our marriage, our home, and who I am. The pain is so deep sometimes I think I won’t remember how to breathe. I feel worthless, ugly, and used. The darkness never leaves.
    Precious Lord, please grant Cathy courage to face her fears, the right words to speak, and the wisdom to time the discussion with her boss perfectly. Wrap your arms around her today. Amen.

    • 26
      Kathy in IN says:

      Lord, please comfort Heart Broken during this painful time. Give her a hope for her marriage and future. You are the God of Peace – I cry out to You for peace for her. Guide her to support, friends that can walk along side her during this time. Amen.

      Heart Broken – I walked something similar and our marriage has been repaired and stronger than before.

    • 27
      Kathy in IN says:

      Please pray for guidance for our finances. We had some unexpected blows this spring and I may need to find a job this fall. Yet, my husband’s job requires many hours (including Saturdays) and I want to be able to be there for my kids, husband, and keep our house running smoothly. I don’t know what steps to take, if any.

      • 28

        Kathy, I will pray for the wisdom to know what to do this coming school year. I too am with my kids and feel this pull as well because finances are getting tight. You and your husband are blessings to your family and will find a way to make it all work out just fine, no matter your decisions. God’s peace is with you.

      • 29

        Praying for you Kathy….I too, faced the same situation last Sept. After being home with my children for the past 8 years, I had to return to the workforce outside the home to help with my family’s finances. It was a decision that had to be made to help us stay afloat! Praying for peace as I know how unsettled your heart is. God knows the desires of your heart and He will make a way for your finances, marriage and children to prosper as long as you seek His will for your family. Hang in there!

      Anastasia says:

      Heavenly Father, please wrap your loving arms arround your daughter who is heart-broken. Will you please mend her heart and her hubby’s. Lord bring restoration to the marriage. Let every plan of the enemy be thwarted in the name of Jesus and let your counsel be esrablished in their lives in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    • 31

      The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18).

      “God, you care deeply for broken-hearted people.  This is a promise you make: You are close.  We pray for all those who are crippled by broken relationships.  Our hearts take the blow of disappointment.  We feel crushed because our hopes are dashed.  God, heal broken hearts.  We cannot fix our own wounds.  But you can.  If pieces of our heart have been lost, or are held captive by another, recover them and bring them back to us and miraculously “put us back together” so that our heart is whole again.  You are a mender of broken hearts.  We ask for this miracle, in the name of Jesus.”

You are beautiful and you have done nothing wrong.. This is not your problem..I pray for your husband that God gets all the glory and you will find peace..

    • 33

      I know your pain and will be praying for you. My husband abandoned me and our child and moved out of our home for the 3rd time in our 16 year marriage in May. Said he just wasn’t happy and wanted to be on his own. Swore there wasn’t anyone else. I was holding out hope that he would repent and give his life to God. Friday I discovered that he had lied when he told our son that it was too busy at work this week for him to come visit with him at lunch like he usually does. He was really on vacation all week and some woman he had met online had flown in from SINGAPORE to spend the week at his apartment. For all I know he paid her to come. Point is he put this woman he had never met before his child. I feel nothing but disgust for him now and will be filing for divorce as soon as possible. Please pray that my anger will not consume me and that our son will never learn the truth about his father.

      Heavenly Father,
      By the blood of Jesus break the chains that bind Heartbroken’s husband to sexual addiction. Reveal the cause of this addiction, and open all doors to recovery and healing and freedom in Jesus name. Wrap your arms around Heartbroken and reassure her that this is NOTHING to do with her. She is not the reason for this addiction. Give her revelation of how precious she is in your sight and help her to forgive him, no matter what the outcome of this is. Heartbroken, lean in to the Father’s arms and be healed. Only in Christ can you find the strength needed for this, and healing for your soul, and the ability to truly forgive.

  10. 36

    I ask for prayer to have God lead us where we are meant to be. My husband got a new job (gratitude!) and he wants to move closer, but I am hesitant since I don’t know about the area and we haven’t found anything we like yet. I know we will end up where we are meant to and I ask for peace during the searching process.

    • 37

      Meg, I am praying for you. We are getting ready for a move in just three days, so I understand all that goes into this decision!

  11. 38

    My husband and I are moving on Wed. This is a major move. We are moving 10 hours from where we currently live. My husband is a pastor, so we are moving to a new church home. Which means lots of goodbyes on this end. Pray for us in this stressful week. Specifically that our current home would sell. And strange as this may sound, we don’t know when the movers are delivering our stuff, they haven’t been able to pinpoint an exact date. My prayer is for it all to be delivered on the 13th! Also, our youngest is entering college in the fall and we are facing not only a move, but an empty nest. My heart is filled with many emotions right now.

    • 39

      Brenda, I have prayed for you this morning! Grace and peace to you during this time of adjustment. May God give you confirmation about plans for furniture delivery so you will not be anxious about that anymore. May the new church community welcome you with loving arms and you find some fast friends to fill the loneliness of an empty nest. May God bless this new area of ministry. God bless!! Lacy

      Beth Williams says:

      Brenda,

      I pray God will guide all aspects of this move & make it an easy transition! Goodbyes are never easy, but try to keep in touch as best as possible!

      Lord–Bless this new endeavor you have for this pastor & family. Help them out with a hugh measure of your loving peace!

      Also be with them as they enjoy the last few days with their youngest! Make that transition smooth also. Help Brenda have a peace that surpasses all understanding!

  12. 41

    I am having a bout with vertigo. dizziness and nausea. I have panic disorder, and this is really causing me to be anxious, which magnifies the whole situation. At some points I can find no relief. Please pray for me to find peace from the anxiety, and be able to handle this inner ear trouble until it passes. Also, please pray that drs will be able to find the source of my symptoms if it is not inner ear. I am having some tests run next week. Thank you!!

    • 42

      Lacy, I pray for healing for you, and peace within your soul. I pray that you will give to God whatever causes your anxiety, as well as the anxiety itself, and that He will quiet your inner struggles. I pray that the Lord will guide the doctors’ hands and that you will find answers, help, and healing. May God bless you, today and always.

    • 43

      Praying for you. I pray that God gives the drs wisdom to discover the source. I also pray that your anxiety would lessen.

    Please pray for me to speak God’s truth in LOVE to three nephews, from three different families, living three different ungodly lifestyles, at an upcoming family gathering.

    Lord, give Brenda peace this week, I pray that her home would sell, that her things would be delivered on the 13th, and that she would have joy as her youngest takes the next step this fall in the life You’ve planned. Through Jesus Christ, Amen.

    • 45

      Amy Lou, I pray that you will speak God’s truth in love to your nephews at the family gathering. I pray that their hearts and minds will be open and receive the words you speak to them. I pray that they will begin to make better life choices, and that you will help them see the truth. I pray for God’s wisdom and understanding for you, and that He continue to be your guide, and become the guide for your nephews.

    • 46

      Please pray for me as I battle with whatever is causing me to feel so tired, depressed and unmotivated. I need energy to do things in our house that desperately need doing – I feel so BLAH!!! I have been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and seeing my doctor this week after I have a blood test, so he can work out the dosage of medication I’ve been on. I haven’t even been to Church for about 2 months. I need to get into a proper sleep pattern, as I’m staying up late and sleeping during the day. Please pray my problem is nothing serious. Please also pray for my little business that I can have the energy to run it properly and be in God’s will.

      Amy Lou, I pray for you in advance before you get to the family gathering that you will be aware of God’s presence and His voice. As you meet these 3 nephews, may you be open to what God wants you to say/not to say. May you be the witness that God wants you to be and the 3 nephews will know you have something they don’t. Let your words and deeds be acceptable to Him, and may your Love of God shine through. In the name of Jesus, our Lord and our Redeemer. Amen

      • 47

        Dear Father, I pray for Kaye that you will give her doctor wisdom and insight into her needs. I ask that you would renew her spirit and body, and that her sleep patterns will return to normal so her days can be filled with energy and joy. Thank you that you hear our prayers and you care for us. We praise you for your great mercy and love in our lives.

    • 49

      Amy Lou, praying that God gives you words to speak, in love, and that they’re received in the spirit they’re given. I’m praying that they’ll be thankful and not resentful for an aunt who loves them and wants the best for them.

  14. 50

    Please pray that I will make the right, Godly decision regarding my living situation. I currently am running out of steam and am finding it more and more difficult to stay where I am. At the same time, I don’t want to let others down. Please pray that there is peace for myself and all parties involved in whatever decision I make. If I should stay where I am, please pray that I will have the strength, patience, and wisdom to endure.

    I had to have a kidney removed in March due to cancer that was found. It was a contained cancer, however I just received word that my remaining kidney is functioning too high and I have to return to doctors. Please pray this is something simple and treatable….and that God would take whatever is causing it completely away. I am also having severe back and leg pain and extremely tired….just want to sleep.
    Lord, I pray for the blessings you give us each day. I pray that you give Mary Lous words that come from you…….give her the courage and strength to speak those words knowing and trusting that you say “My word will not return void”. Help her to plant the seed in her nephews that you promise will be tended, and that this tending leads to a saving knowledge of You. Amen.

    My daughter was rendered paralyzed 2 years ago. The strain of caring for a child with her medical needs in addition to the rest of my family is nearly killing all of us. She is so bitter and angry and makes life very difficult for those around her. I need guidance and understanding of how to care for her. And I need for my other boys to feel important in this family in light of the other things.

    Monica says:

    My husband accepted a job in a town 2 hours away at the end of April. We are trying to sell our house in a hard market here. We had an offer and then it was withdrawn due to financing issues on their part. We had a house picked out and that is now sold. . .I have a leg problem and cannot lift so we were planning to use packers and movers provided by the employer but the estimate came in way too high for what the employer will pay and we don’t have that much stuff. . .We keep selling things to pay bills as we try to live in 2 places. This is also hard because my son has asperger’s and I homeschool. Change is hard for him and we need to get settled in to start school on time. Nothing seems to be working out and I can’t feel God’s presence. I don’t have a very good support system. And I am losing hope and getting depressed.

    • 62

      Praying for Monica ~ when all hope seems gone, praying nonstop has help me get thru the times I thought God wasn’t there. I know how I felt when I thought God wasn’t around anymore and had no support system. I am praying for you to keep your belief and just continue to pray and you will feel His presence again!

    • 63

      OH, Monica, don’t lose hope, precious child of God! He hasn’t left you. He knows all that is going on and He longs to help you thru it! Whisper His name in quiet reverence. Read the following scriptures and BELIEVE them.
      I Hope these help you.
      I received the following email and is very encouraging.
      “When the enemy comes to us with discouraging thoughts and encourages us to quit our work for the Lord, it is very important that we renew our mind and speak the Word of God out loud so the enemy can hear it. The enemy has tried to discourage me many times and let me tell you, that when I stand firm and speak the Scriptures, those thoughts flee from me faster than when they entered my mind. Be encouraged and when in doubt, speak the Scriptures out loud and see the deliverance of the Lord. Believe me, it works!

      I received this a while back and have always loved to read it whenever troubles came my way. I encourage you to print off a copy or keep it handy in your email box so you can get quick access when you need to fight off Satan and his wicked thoughts.

Do not give up hope. He loves you so much, and He loves your son even more than you do! He holds the future and has made provisions for it, so that you do not have to worry or be anxious about tomorrow. Just get thru today with His strength. You do not have to be strong. He is all the strength you need. just give it all over to Him. Rest in His arms… in His peace. Go to Him. give Him all your worries, tell Him all about it. He is with you right now.

    Leslie, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Marriage is not easy as we journey through life with our spouses. I have been blessed by this community over and over. I ask for prayer for my family to hear God’s voice and follow His will for our lives. We are all at places of decision making and ask for help in making wise choices. Thank you!

  25. 76

    My prayer request is that I leave for Haiti in a week. I’ll be there for a week with a large group of people from all over the US. Prayer for safety, cohesion among the teams working together, and an open heart.

    Sharalyn says:

    This seems silly, but my husband left yesterday for a business trip (second one in two weeks), and I am very unsettled about it this time. I’ve never had a problem before (other than trouble sleeping while he’s gone), but for about 3 weeks now, I can’t seem to shake the feeling that he’s not coming home this time.

    I would appreciate prayers for safety for him (he flies home on Friday, the 13th of this month, and it’s an overseas flight), but especially for peace for me and a relinquishing of any need for control since our Heavenly Father has got this however it goes. Thank you!

    • 79

      Sharalyn, you are right! God is in total control! Nothing is going to happen without His permission. I am praying for a safe flight for your husband, and for the Holy Spirit to minister to you and bathe you in His perfect peace.

    Dearest Heavenly Father,

    I stand before you now, in the Fellowship of all of these dear sisters in the Only Name that truly binds us together, asking for you to bless us richly and abundantly from your great Mercy and Grace. We know we are so undeserving to ask, but we know all things work together for good for those who love You and are called according to Your purpose. May our prayers be in Your Will for us today.

  32. 88

    After going through what some think only happens in movies and my just 7 yr. old daughter (now 12) stolen, us terrorized, lives destroyed, overcome by evil men (including ex husband), humiliated for my faith and continuing having to live daily with all the damage in every area of our lives that they continue to scheme and follow through to terrorize our lives.
    All those i contacted for help did nothing and offered no support, help or assistance against all the injustice, crimes and isolation committed against us leaving no spiritual family support or hope for restoration and reunion.
    Hope
    I need  help/assistance my life has been compromised, terrorized and destroyed. Due to my ex husband, Michael Johannes T (german national) deals were made    My daughter was stolen.  I have been wrongly desparaged in every way. Identity theft, perjure, forgery, debauchery, bribery  and stripped of every known right: civil, constitutional, moral, human, religious, motherly……etc.  Has been commited against me. When I had my daughter, Natalie Joy  and when they went to get child support  ( I have full Custody from German supreme court)  his gov said he did not exist.
    I have not seen my daughter since 2007

    Jesus Christ is my Lord; since I was little. Because of this I was put in a position to renounce Christ or never see my daughter again…. I have lost everything and most importantly my lovely daughter who I have not seen in 5 years all because of my satanic, criminal ex husband. As a result he terrorizes every area of my life;  i have not met yet any true Christians who will stand with me and say no to all the injustice and evil.

    I am sad and heart broken over all those who I reached out to and no one saw it their duty to help us…..
    Is not the body of Christ one and what one part suffers we all suffer?
    Well it makes the question what are you all really suffering and do not even see it. 
    Some can say Jesus is coming soon but if those who say they are Christian can not even Be One; it appears to be  farther off than they think.

    • 89

      dearest sister kat, i am and will pray in all fervency for our Lord to stop the evil this man is is doing. also for the swift return of your beloved daughter. i fully agree regarding the lack of ears to hear and eyes to see in much of our churches today. but again, our jesus tells us to expect this and not be dismayed, although it is not an easy thing. for we are to be ONE BODY under christ and use all power, love He has given . we do live so much below the standards that Paul upheld in new testament. i have encountered amazing self absorbtion over petty problems and no true sisterly brotherly love that follows through to the end. the lack of passion is great. but we are to continue regardless to fight this spiritual battle. GOD cover you and you daughter…lora

My wrong decisions are leaving us with no car, my unemployment and living with relatives that aren’t the easist people to live with.

  43. 110

    Our 16 year old son with autism is currently in Juvenille Detention. It’s been a long hard road with him and we are just praying that God would just break through to his heart, past all his issues and disability and GET A SOLID HOLD on our boy’s heart. He will be moving to a therapeutic facility soon, if all goes well. I have felt so much sadness and isolation as I try to move forward and parent my other kiddos well-without moping. I love them all so much! Hubby is sort of a tough guy/military man so I feel sort of emotionally starved right now. I know that God is in it all and I am trying to learn what He has for me in this fire of trial. I could use some prayer, so thank you so much for posting this today. :) Blessings to all!!! ~Jami

    • 111

      I am praying for you, Jami. I am praying God will touch your son’s life in way that will help him. I am praying your husband will be a support for you and your entire family. I am praying for your precious other kiddos too!

God bless this family, and provide brighter days in knowing that you have not forsaken them, but instead you are giving them the time needed for you to put your master plan into action. In your holy name I pray this, Amen.

  45. 114

    My heart is touched with all of these needs for the women and their families, and I am praying now for strength, health, financial provision, and His peace in each situation. My needs seem small in comparison. My pastor husband had 5-bypass surgery, and is recuperating. He needs wisdom how to not take on stress, and for the church to be strong during this time. We also have a special needs daughter and I need peace and strength to handle each day. We are so blessed and thankful there was no heart damage!

      Father in Heaven, I ask in Jesus’ awesome name that you would pour out your Holy Spirit in a new way in Valerie’s life! We pray for strongholds to come down and that she would see clearly all that you want to reveal to her. We need you, like water in a desert, we long for You, Lord. Please come and have YOUR way in our lives and make our desires align with Your desires for us. You made us to reflect Your glory and I pray that right now, Valerie will feel your love in a powerful way. Fill her, Lord, not so she can just be filled, but to then let Your love flow from her life. You made us for so much more than to just survive. I pray, God, that you would help us realize who we are in YOU, apart from You we can do nothing, but you are in us and will help us to do anything you ask of us. Thank you, Lord, that Valerie longs for revival in her soul…you will meet her and make all things new! We ask it all in Jesus’ name. <3

    Please pray for my family. My son is autistic and has recently regressed in his behavior to the point where we had to pull him out of daycare. My husband and I both work, so we especially need prayer for wisdom as far as what we need to do as far as care for him. Please pray for my husband…he is having a very difficult time spiritually right now because of everything that has been going on with our son.

    • 119

      Oh, Kris, I know this pain so deeply and it’s more familiar than I care to admit. I will be praying for you all as you navigate this road. I have 4 teens, 1 with autism (plus other “stuff”). My heart aches for you. I pray that you will find some good resources near you to meet with other mamas…if there isn’t something then maybe God would have you start a mom’s prayer group. It would have made a huge difference to me, I think. Just remember, as hard as any given day is, the God who made you is with you and longs to be your shelter. He wants you to know that you CAN do this with Him. I pray you will be filled up with His love and tap into the Holy Spirit to help you love your family with God’s overflowing, untiring love. Some days feel like “too much”, but God is MORE than enough and He must know you are stronger than you ever imagined yourself. Let Him love you and guide you through the minefield of autism. I will keep praying for you, my warrior mama sister. :)

Thank you so much for your prayers!

  55. 131

    Suzanne,
    I will be praying for your home to sell quickly. May the Lord work out all the details and pave the way for your next adventure.

    My prayer request is for peace and guidance as my husband and I begin the long process of adopting. I still struggle with the idea of not having my own children, but know God will provide exactly what we are suppose to have.
    Thank you.

    • 136

      Amy,
      As a family who turned to Foster to Adopt after two very risky pregnancies and the doctor informing us that I may not make it the next time, I can guarantee you the long process and the mounds of paperwork and the wait is BEYOND worth it.
      We prayed God would provide the right child at the right time and HE provided not one but two beautiful kiddos for us. One was an infant at birth and the other a 10 year old girl that had been bounced because most want babies. We never thought we would take an older child but God tugged our hearts after hearing her story. We have been tremendously blessed by both process.
      I pray the same for you and your husband. May God provide the right child at the right time. Peace in the process. Enjoy each day of the journey and the best thing is to journal it so you can read it to them about how hard you dreamed/worked/prayed/desired them and how wonderfully God answered those prayers and turned your dreams into His reality in your lives.

  59. 137

    Please pray for my husband who is struggling with chronic pain that is so debilitating he is withdrawing from life – his job, our children, grandchildren – friends. Even church.

    Sue Ellen says:

    Please pray for my 8 year old grandaughter Mary Elise, her family was in the Texas wildfires that destroyed their whole neighborhood, their home was left standing but all around the memories of that frightening week , the charred trees, the bare slabs of concrete where a friend or school mates home use to stand. I would love your prayers for her today. Thank You
    Please pray for Karen and may she know that even when she feel like she has lost her way , Our Wonderful Shepherd JESUS will carry her in His own sweet arms. You know We are not good sheep and we are always off path more often than not, but He is A most excellent shepherd, He never lets us out of his sight.
    Jesus Will redeem and turn it all for good for His Beloved. May they turn hearts toward home. HUGS, Sue Ellen

  63. 141

    Please pray for my grandson who is about to enter college, away from home. He has very mild autism, resulting in shyness, etc. He will have several roommates at this college, and I am praying that he can find friends that will truly ‘be’ friends with him. He just needs more self confidence as he enters this ‘separation’ from home. I do appreciate your prayers for him. And, I have great faith that God ALWAYS provides. Thank you.

  64. 142

    My son, Matt, needs prayers for the job that God has planned for him. I need prayers to have peace while waiting.

    Jennifer, I pray for your peace – remember to mourn, and healing WILL come! You will always miss him, but the grieving will lessen. Cindy, you didn’t name a request, but I pray grace & peace for you!

    I need prayers for my eyes – I had cataract surgeries 2 & 3 weeks ago, and spent too much time in the sun yesterday. They are sore & achy – please pray for healing for me.

  66. 144
    Jennifer says:

    I am praying for your eyes, Elaine. May God bring you healing and well-being, and freedom from pain.

    Please pray for financial guidance and peace for our family. Our modification fell through and we are facing foreclosure/bankruptcy and seem to be under attack from all angles–our checking account was hacked and drained, but I know God is on our side and things will work out for His glory.

  67. 145
    Barbara says:

    Elaine, I pray total healing for your eyes, protection over the surgeries that have been done. Thank you Lord for your miracle working power in Elaine’s eyes and life!

    Dorothy says:

    That I would not be afraid of my family’s disapproval of me taking my husband back.

  69. 147

    I need prayer for understanding and peace in my heart. I’m sure you heard about the army officer that was killed on Fort Bragg last Thursday. He was my boss and I was standing in the formation. I saw when the Soldier killed him, and my heart is broken. I do not want to be bitter nor question God but I am at a lost. I cannot understand the purpose of taking this life, especially since he was a family man who was good and honest, and he loved his family. Then to top things off, my faithful dog companion of 11 years had to be put to sleep two days after it happened. I feel like I am surrounded by loss and I feel like I am drifting. So I really do need prayer.

    • 148

      Maria, I will be praying for all of you who are close to this situation. Many years back, a girl I went to school with was murdered (many of us feel that it was by her ex husband, who I also went to school with). At the same time, a man from our church passed away unexpectedly, a good man. I am praying that all of you who are experiencing questions will not wander too far down the path of “why” or try to figure it out. I had a terrible time after the deaths I mentioned because I let my compass go from God’s face to my questions and desire for answers. We may not know why, on so many things in our lives, but we do know Who. We have a God is is mighty and mysterious in His ways, a God who is faithful, loving, and good. Our God is merciful and desires to be known and to know us. I pray that you will keep His desires for you as your true north as your heart aches in this time. I pray that you will be a source of light and strength to those around you who are hurting and you will point them to the ultimate Healer. Our world is a sinful place and there is so much tragedy that we may never understand. I am currently going through a trial I never imagined, but all I know and keep hearing in my heart and mind…God is on the throne. He has not looked away from our situations or “missed” something. He does bring beauty from ashes and I pray that you will not only see His goodness as the days unfold, that you will also be able to show others His goodness. I am praying for you and your precious heart. Don’t drift…please, don’t let the enemy lead you down a meandering path of questioning. Cling to the One who holds every answer and holds you in the shelter of His wings. We don’t need to understand it all, we just need to trust Him…every 5 minutes keep coming back to that, that you trust Him, Maria. I know that if we keep our trust and hope in the Lord, we will make it through the fire. He is with us every second. Bless you and thank you for your service. <3 (my hubby was Army Guard for 17 years, then had to retire because of our difficult with our son with autism) Hugs!! ~Jami

    Thank you for praying for all of us..may God bless all of these women today. I am humbled by all these requests. Please pray that God will restore my health and remove my chronic intense pain in my muscles and bones..I was overtaken by debilitating pain 3 years ago and my life has completely changed. I lost my job, friends disappeared, my marriage is holding on by a thread, and I feel like I am failing my only daughter due to being so sick all the time. Please pray that God removes my pain, so I can begin to exercise to regain my strength and rebuild my life, and for financial prosperity as we have become so deeply in debt….thank you so much.

    Ginny Van Vleck Pereira says:

    My husband and I are missioanries in Goias, Brazil. This month we have children and teen camps and a camp leadership training course with 6 students. Tomorrow we have 100 campers from 6 to 15 yrs old arriving for a week of camp. Please pray that as God´s Word is given out it will fall on good ground that there be much fruit in the lives of these kids.

  80. 161

    The past couple months, I’ve been seeking God for direction. Please pray that my heart would be open and attentive to His voice and that I will be courageous and obedient to follow His will. :D

    Please also pray for my family and for church and our youth group. We’re praying to reach more souls for Jesus!

  81. 162

    please pray that the Lord makes himself known in a way my husband can understand and that he comes to Salvation; he comes from an ugly Catholic background and painful family situation and he does not understand the concept of Grace. I have been praying for him for 30 years. Thank you.

  82. 163

    Lord, you know Hilda and her husband’s desire to find good friends in their community…and you know just the type of interaction they each need. Please bring just the right people into their lives to love them, and to challenge them to be all that you want them to be. Let these friendships be perfectly suited to their personalities as well. :-)

    Also, please guide the medical team treating their father’s cancer…and bring quick healing to him. Amaze them all with your thoroughness!

    ………………………….

    I would like prayer for peace re: the decisions our country’s leaders are making that go against everything our country is about! I am very concerned for my kids and the type of country they will have to live in if we Christians don’t speak up in November! I wouldn’t consider myself to be extremely political— but if you watch the news at ALL you can see that our country is headed in a bad direction! I know God is in control– and that comforts me– but we also are called to make wise choices in our lives…and that means voting for what’s right. Pray that the Christian community will rise to their responsibility this November! And that peace will surround my heart re: this issue. Thank you!

I have been sitting by his side for 4 days now and I pray that he is not suffering and that God will release his soul from the body that has failed him soon. Please pray for His mercy. Thank you and God bless.

    Please pray for courage and my faith in God that all will work out the way he had planned. My husband of five years is bipolar and hadn’t been taking his meds. He is very abusive, mostly verbal and emotional. But two weeks ago he tried to kill me so I called the police. I now have a TPO, but it is very hard on me financially to take care of three children. Pray that God will provide.
    Cate- I’m praying for your marriage and for you to find love in God. I hope you feel blessed my God’s love.

Open their eyes and let them see that you are their God, their salvation,their Savior and without you they are nothing. I pray that each son would open his heart, mind and soul to you God and accept you into his life and heart, to be grafted into the Family of God forever. Let them take your salvation, ask forgiveness of their sins and pick up your word, going forward in your love and mercy, sharing it with those around them. In your name, Amen

      Kate harden says:

      Sweet Mama, I LOVE that I get to pray for you! I will read Psalm 139 in prayer, specifically for you. My daughter is 3. I had severe post partum anxiety and could not make any decisions and thought aliens were going to come take my baby. Really. And I’m a normal, God fearing girl, a teacher who loves the news. And I slept in the bathtub with my daughter for fear of the aliens. Really. You are not alone. Not ever. God has gone before you in this and He sees the joyous future you will have as a mom in wild sunshine, no cloak of darkness. You will shake this with time, His love, and be kind to yourself! This is not in any way a reflection of you or the mom you are. Loves, kate

    Please pray for me as I struggle with food addiction and depression. I feel as though God is mad at me or something, it just seems like the momentum I had is gone and he is way up there somewhere – inaccessible to me and my daily problems.

      Kate h says:

      Crystal, I read your post and then prayed for you and James 1:17-18 popped into my heart for you. May you fully embrace, believe and live knowing that you are a prized fruit, a perfectly loved prized possession of Christ. He never changes, He never turns His back, the shadows around you are deceptive. He is still there and His love has never doubted your worth as His daughter. Loving you, Kate

    Tracey says:

    Ginny, Thank you for the special work that you and your husband do. May the Holy Spirit bless and strengthen your efforts and may you see the fruits of your mission.
    I ask for your prayers for my marriage and my family. My four children & I found out 10 months ago that my husband of 24 years has been having a long term affair. He has refused to try counseling and has filed for
    divorce. (thank you)

  96. 183

    Tracey, I am praying for you today. I too have been hurt by my husband’s infidelity. I know the pain and confusion you feel, the hopelessness. But please know that you will survive, even thrive, through the love of God. I pray that God will show you the way to find strength through this situation. I pray that the Holy Spirit will bless you and your children and hold you and comfort you, and send you peace of heart and mind.

    Tracey, if you would like to email me I would be happy to talk to you more about how I survived and then learned to thrive through my own situation. sun_kat@hotmail.com

    Today I ask for prayers to bring me closer to God. I am a beginner Christian and need support for my first toddling steps on the path. I struggle with eating issues and tend to turn towards food as my comfort and strength rather than God. Please pray that I can turn this pattern around and instead use it as an opportunity to embrace God’s love. I want so much to focus on Him rather than food.

    Thank you!

    Melissa O says:

    I am an out-law with the in-laws! I do not know what the problem is or why they do not want to talk to me or my husband, but I think it has something to do with my husband coming to church with me and the kids. My husband is doing all he can to love us well and lead us. His heart is being made new and his family doesn’t seem to recognize the beauty of it. I am happy that his dad is still wanting to have a relationship with him, but his mom is angry. The kids miss their grandma and aunt and my husband is tired of the conflict and doesn’t really care if they want a relationship or not. It’s messy!

    My mom, MARIA A. MENDOZA, in Bogota, Colombia is a 76y.o. lady affected by Parkinson’s disease related dementia. It has been a couple of weeks since she does not recognize and fight/reject her caretakers (including two of my sibblings) sometimes she does not even eat and refuse medicines too. The whole family is heartbroken and heavy laden they are seeking for a psiquiatric/elderly home. Please intercede in prayer for a miracle of whole restoration of her health through which the whole family would surrender to true faith in Christ and/or saving grace for her soul and the souls of all those around her still trapped by deception of Catholicism. Pray for patience, strength, wisdom and love for the doctors and caretakers, provision of a place where she will be safe and well taken care of as well as the means to pay for it as my family is of limited resources and I am so far away, unemployed, hurting too unable to do more than just praying for them.

      Querida Myriam, Por favor sepan que estoy orando por tu mamá. Qué horrible estar tan lejos cuando se lo necesita. Sabemos que Dios no tiene limitaciones cuando sea necesario y que incluso ahora, él está cuidando a su dulce madre. Sabemos que Él ama estar en una situación en la que pueden aparecer y ser glorificado! Le pido que no sólo proporcionará un lugar para su madre, la curación para ella, la paz y la comodidad para todos ustedes, pero que él se adapte a sus hermanos y la familia dónde están y atraerlos a sí mismo. Nuestro Dios es un Dios glorioso y cariñoso, celoso de nuestros corazones sin embargo, los pacientes en espera de ellos. Rezo para que su familia va a llegar a conocer a su disposición en todos los sentidos … sobre todo en la eternidad. Que Dios siga protegiendo, ofrecer y te bendiga. En el nombre y el amor de Jesús, Miriam Denise

    Also, prayer for friends’ marriage…that it would be reconciled, that they would be willing to forgive one another and that they would not divorce…and that again, God would be glorified in the reunion.
    Finally, praise that our family is healthy, that we are loved, that we see God’s hands in our lives every single day and that we are able to share Him with others.

Just when we are headed for a breakthrough he quits when crisis comes, and we’ve had many crisis situations over the past year. Those who know us say that they feel my husband has some issues inside he needs to deal with, but he doesn’t want to. Pray for good,godly counsel and healing for him, our marriage and family.

    Catherine says:

    I pray the Lord will answer everyone of your requests Denise. He is faithful in each one of his promises and will bring it to pass.
    I would like to request prayers for good health to care for and support my family. I pray not to fall into the trap of discouragement and despair in not being able to do more due to my health condition. Finances have been a struggle but I know He promises to supply all our needs according to His riches in glory and even tho I feel limited, I pray that my limits are greater stepping stones for the Lord to do miracles. I would also like to solicit prayers for one of my children who is struggling with addiction and is not receptive at the moment to advise and hard for them to realize how far they are gone, for wisdom and sensitivity on how to go about the situation. Thank you so much for your prayers.
    May the Lord pour His abundant blessings upon each one of you today and always!

    Prayer for His timing, His will, and His provision as my husband starts a new job in a new city, and we leave behind a home, family, church family and ministry that we love.

  106. 201

    I would like to pray to find a job that will fulfill God’s purposes for me in this life and that I may find friends who share similar spiritual paths so that we can encourage each other to achieve our highest level of service to our heavenly Father. I feel a change coming in my life and would like friends to help me along the way. Additionally, I pray for Catherine and that Jehovah Rophe heals her body and any feelings of weariness or weakness. I also pray for her son, that his diagnosis of addiction is not his prognosis for his life, that God will lift and sustain him to be whole and well. Lastly, I would like to pray a prayer of gratitude to the (in)courage team for being such wonerful and effective sisters in Christ. May God bless you all.

  107. 202

    Sue Anderson says:

    I’ve been a widow for 14 years now since my husband died from cancer in 1998 and I was only 48 years old with three children. The Lord has been a perfect husband and father to us. My request is that perhaps there would be another love in my life before this earthly mission is over. I believe the Lord can, if He wills, bring someone into my life to whom I can be a helpmeet without having to go “online” and do the searching on my own. I’m not desperate.

    • 206

      Lord, you know the plans that you have for Sue. If it is your will, please guide the man that you know would be just right for her, into her life. And I pray that she would have the wisdom to see your plans for her, and that it would happen in your time, Lord. Thank you, Father, for all you do in our lives.

  110. 207

      Lord, I just ask that you would guard Robin’s heart. As an adult child of two divorces, You know how I hate divorce and how it has affected my own life. Because of my experiences, I pray that you would begin to work in Mr. Hollis, that in a supernatural way, You would get ahold of him today Father. Be it though a song, a magazine article, a billboard, a scripture verse, something. But today that You would begin a work in him. I ask that you would give Robin strength to endure this waiting period, that you would provide her with support and friendships that will help her to make wise decisions for her own good in this time. I ask that you would reconcile this marriage and protect any children if they are involved, with any of the three adults in this situation. We ask your hedge of protection agains the enemy’s schemes here Father, we know you are powerful enough to turn this around. Amen.

      Robin – I’m a song bird. Two songs came to mind for you: 1. Praise you in this storm by Casting Crowns and 2. He will carry me by Mark Schutlz. Keep your chin up!

    Melanie says:

    Please pray for peace in my life. It seems like I am in conflict with a lot of people and to me it’s not my fault. Not because I don’t want to take responsibility for it, if it were, but it’s because they have hurt/are hurting me and I am struggling with the notion of walking away or trying harder. For my emotional well being (I am pregnant and in grad school) it seems like it’s just better to walk away for now, but that doesn’t make my heart hurt any less.

  115. 214

    A team from Portland and from my hometown of Chicago, are leaving on Friday 7-13 for Rwanda. Satan has been already attacking a couple of the team members with stressful things here right before we leave, including myself with some illnesses, death, and difficult times with family in the last week.

I have to travel to Canada to seek homeopathic treatment. Please pray for courage and srength for me to continue my life due to losing my two sons and almost losing my daughter. I also ask for prayer for my daughter and granddaughter so that they will be healthy. Aditionally, please pray for my husband and grandaughter to believe in Jesus as I pray that Jesus will lay His hands on Lkay and her husband that their marriage will be restored and that the Lord will heal all your wounds from this experience.

    I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, hearing loss in my left ear due to a recent virus and am in debt up to my eyeballs after closing a family business in 2009. I’ve been dealing okay with all of that but just got laid off from a job I had for 1 year, 9 months. At 52, I’m scared about not finding employment. But I’m SO blessed with some amazing friends who have seen me through some incredibly hard times. Please pray that I can remember all the good in my life which will enable me to get a new job and be able to support myself. Thank you, Cathy

    Carolyn says:

    Please pray for our marriage. I have been unable (unwilling) to stand up to the men in my work life who make advances toward me. By doing this, I end up putting my family last.

I would also like to see all my sister’s children get saved and commit their lives to living and walking with Jesus. I have fallen in love with a foreigner who would like to make me his wife. I need to hear from God if this is OK with Him. I pray for Carolyn now and ask God to restore her marriage by empowering them to love and forgive each oher.

    Prayer for my husband (a believer) who filed.for a divorce over a year ago. The house has been sold and we are both living in separate temporary places . may his heart respond to the love of God (Who he still claims to follow) And obedience. he has never been open to counseling and is filled with anger. may God deliver him. Pray for wisdom for me in mediation and to have Gods heart in all this.

  133. 235

    I recently returned from an overseas mission trip and I’m trying to figure out if I’m called to go back for a longer period of time next summer. I think it might be God’s calling, but I am afraid (and others have implied) that maybe I’m just looking for adventure. I just am looking for clarity and direction.

  134. 236

    Heavenly Father, I pray for Sharon and her husband, and that your will be done in the divorce process. Lord, we cannot change others – only your power, love, mercy and grace can. Hold Sharon in your forgiving embrace – comfort her and give her the inner peace she needs, knowing that you have an amazing future for her. Bless Sharon with love and abundance, provision and healthy relatioships. I Jesus’ precious and powerful name, AMEN!

    My prayer requests – a job where I can use my talents of leadership and administration, in a healthy work environment, with generous pay and flexible schedule to provide for me and my 2 children. I also need patience as I wait for God to bring me a man who truly loves Him.

  135. 237

    Please pray for my husband’s release from alcoholism and return to the Lord, healing in our marriage. For answers to arm and hand pains I have been suffering with and financial relief as I seek help for this pain.

    Lord, please open Casey to your wisdom in the direction for her life. May she have the time to nestle down into your arms and to sit quietly to listen to your voice for her life.

    • 238

      I pray for Dianne that You will help her husband make good decisions. Help him to find a better way to deal with his pain than alcohol. I pray for Diane’s arm and hands, that You will release her from the pain and heal her, Oh Father. I pray for her finances to be blessed, oh God that her needs will be met and the needs of all those that she loves.

    • 239

      Lifting you and your husband up Diane! I know your situation all too well right now in my own home. Lord, I ask that you restore our marriages, heal our hearts, work in a mighty way in our lives and our husbands lives. Help them to draw closer to you when they feel the need to drink. May their next sip of alcohol repulse them. Asking for your peace that only you can give to fill our homes and hearts. Thanking you for being a faithful God!

      Praying for wisdom for Diane and the Drs. she encounters, that they will give her a correct diagnosis and treatment for her arms and hands. Thanking you now for her healing and for making provisions for her.

      I can relate Joyce! We’ve been there too!

      Dear Lord,
      I ask that you please surround Joyce and her husband with Spirit Filled couples. Psalms 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will grant the desires of your heart”. Joyce delights in you so please grant her the desires of her heart in a way that is unmistakably You. We love you Lord. In Jesus name and for His sake. Amen.

    Thank you,
    Joy

  143. 249

    Pam. I pray for strength in waiting for what God has placed on your son’s heart and to listen to the still small voice of His intended path. Be surrounded with the love and care of so many people, who are right next to you and you just don’t know it!

    Cate. Forgive and be strong in the gift of marriage that you have been given. Search for the reasons why you came together in the beginning and see if those can be known again. Cate, there are so many of us, who know your pain and care for you, to lift you up in prayer, in caring and sustaining you to find the joy in each day!

    Pamela Goetz says:

    I just need prayer regarding God’s love for me…many times I feel as if I’ve blown it too much or fallen away from His grace.

  145. 251

    Please stand with me in prayer while I wait expectantly for my husband to find Jesus. I pray daily that God will draw him to the place where he allows our Father to make him into the man the man he was created to be.
    I am going to go through the comment list and pray for each of you. I pray that our God will supply each of your needs according to his riches in glory and that he will answer in ways that we could never think, ask or imagine. God bless each of you! Amen and Amen!

  146. 252
    Another Mom says:

    Brenda G says:

    ladyd – I just sent up prayers for you. Life is hard but God is good! You are NOT alone. God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit are here to help you. Just open up your heart and receive it. I am praying that you read this and realize you are loved. Father – be with ladyd and life her up. Remind her you created her and she is precious to you. Show her that life can be hopeful and worthwhile. May she feel loved and blessed by you. Amen.

    God is good. He has been getting me thru the last 18 months after I lost my job. He’s kept me in my home even after I could not make payments for the last 8 months. He gave me favor with my mortgage company and my payment has been reduced by half. Please pray my 2nd mortgage company provides the same favor as well. I am almost out of unemployment, but I got a job at Pizza Hut as a delivery person. I have a BS and worked for 26 years in the aviation industry, but whatever God wants me to do, I will do it. I am building a Mary Kay business and have already been asked to become a shift manager where I work. I just pray and ask you to pray that I make the right decisions. I pray to be blessed so I may be a blessing to others.

    Thank you!

    • 255

      God I ask that you help Brenda in the decisions she needs to make for work. Be her guide and direct her steps each day. Show her grace and favor with all that she puts her hands to do for your glory!

      I ask that you pray for me for peace and understanding. My husband and I have faced some very hard times over the last year. We need direction in our lives and really need some miracles to come through. Please pray for me specifically that I can pass my state test for teaching. I graduated 2 years ago but have not been able to pass this test. It is very hard for me. My husband just passed his teaching test and really feels called to be in the teaching field but so far nothing has come up. Thanks for all your prayers!

      • 256

        Debra, your story touched my heart because I have a son who is a teacher. When he graduated and started looking for teaching opportunities, he ended up out of our state and teaching in Virginia. Virginia had (and has) a lot of job openings.

        Lord, please help Debra relax and be focused during her next test and assist her husband in finding employment. Guide them into your best opportunity for them. Amen.

  149. 257

    After leaving our home church of 7 years our family has struggled to even visit other churches. Friends invite us and we don’t go. It’s been 6 months. We need to be in a church community. Please pray. Thank you.

  150. 258

    I am going on a mission trip July 12-21 with 17 other women to Guatemala. We will be teaching a faith-based self-esteem program to girls. Please pray that God reaches into their hearts in a very real way. Also, I have been having a lot of back pain lately so I cherish your prayers for that as well.
    Blessings!

  151. 259

    Brenda G, I pray that you continue to follow God knowing that He is faithful and will provide for all your needs. Trust Him and be reminded that He is a promise keeper and is always on time. I pray that you will seek His word so that He may lead you in the right direction as you enter a new season in your life.

    I am so grateful for all the blessings that God has given me. I’m especially grateful for my husband and children. Please pray that I be released from the bondage of fear and I’m able to walk in faith and do what God has called me to do. Thank you!

  152. 260
    Renee Mock says:

    I will definitely be praying for Sue and the success of the mission trip and her back pain. Would love an update when she returns if that is possible. I would like prayer for my brother who is 69 and is an atheist. He does believe we are starting to go into the End of Time for this earth but has NOT accepted Christ as HIS Saviour & Lord. I want to see ALL my family members in heaven as the song says “Will the Circle Be Unbroken By & By” . Sincerely, Renee

  153. 261
    Rebecca says:

    Father I pray for Ayeshia that you would fill her with your peace and release her from all fear. I pray that she will clearly hear your voice and she would walk in the way you have set for her. Thank you that you bless obedience. May Ayeshia feel your presence today as she seeks after you.

    I need God to move in my marriage. I identify so much with Heart Broken above. My husband of 11 years is suffering addiction to pornography (although he doesn’t think it is an issue) and it seems to have twisted his thinking-he wants us to have an open marriage and says I am a good wife except for that part of our life and even there I am good it is just that he has never had that “spark” for me. We have three young children. He says he doesn’t want to leave because of the kids but tells me one thing-that he loves me and then tells others that he doesn’t feel anything for me. Our marriage counsellor says he is living in a fantasy world. I would agree. Please pray. Last time I asked for prayer here he decided to stay-that was back in February. Thanks for your prayers.

  154. 262

    My daughter is disappointed over a relationship not working out which took her by surprise as well as the rest of us. My nerves have gotten the best of me and it is hard functioning and she is disappointed which hurts me to see. Don’t understand it but God has a plan.

    I am grateful for a good husband who listens to me and tries to comfort me.

    • 263
      Beth Williams says:

      Grace,

      Praying for peace over your daughter’s disappointed relationship and your nerves. May He heal you all & show you something much much better! May you all feel His loving grace & mercy surrounding you at all times!

      Lord–thank you for giving Grace & her daughter a most wonderful husband and father who listens & tries to comfort! Thank you! :)

  155. 264

    Sue, I pray that your back is healed and healthy for you trip. I pray that you, the other women and the girls you are ministering to yearn for God’s love and see and feel his love from each of you!

    Ayeshia, I pray that you be released from your fears so that you can be all that God intends you to be! I think we all struggle with fear and be all that God intended us to be.

    I ask for prayer for my family, especially my son, he got into some trouble and will be going to court on Thurs. He has made so many changes in his life. I pray that he will seek God to be his constant companion in his life as he finishes his last year of college and that God’s will be done in court!

  156. 265
    Beth Williams says:

    My prayer is that I would want to be closer to God. I also want to be a better Christian both at home & especially at work.

    Help me to seek His will and guidance before making any more hasty decisions! Want to be Christ to the world!

  157. 266
    Renae Goysich says:

    Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that You will open the eyes of Rebecca’s husband, to see that what he is doing is so very wrong, so against the perfect plan of marriage that You set into motion even before our time began. Help him to see how he is hurting his family, show him the truth before its too late.

    I too am having troubles in my marriage. I don’t even know the man I am married to, we have been to a counselor, but he is not willing to do the things the counselor suggests. There is a lot of hurt from the past. I have overcome unhealthy relationships, drugs, alcohol, and have submitted my life totally to God. But my husband just can’t figure out how to forgive me, and so he just doesn’t talk to me.
    please pray for us. Thank you.

  158. 267

    Please pray for me as God leads me through some disappointment and grief. I’m praying for God’s direction and provision, His grace and His favor.

    Thank you for praying.

  159. 268

    • 269

      Lord, I lift up Kayla to you now. I am thanking you for the success of the VBS that is coming soon. I ask that you bless each volunteer and child that is involved during this precious time. That everyone will go home with a changed and renewed heart, mind, and spirit!

      Asking for stregthening of marriages and families. Your wisdom in all that they set out to do, that you will go before them, that they will find Your favor, that they will listen for Your voice in all their decisions. Wrap them up in your peace and love!

  160. 270

    For my husband Robert, to be convicted of the pain and division he is causing myself and my children by his excessive drinking over the weekends. That the Holy Spirit move in a mighty way and touch his heart and mind…..that the desire to drink would be removed and actually repulse him. I don’t want my marriage or family destroyed because of this, but it is so hard to hang on and know where to turn…I have NEVER felt so helpless. Even though I know my God is FAITHFUL!

  161. 271

    LuAnn, I pray that your son will know that He is loved unconditionally by His heavenly father and anything he has done in the past is forgiven. I pray that he will know that God is with him every step of the way, whatever the outcome of the court is. Releasing our children to God and believing that He loves them even more than we do is a challenge!

    Please pray for my family as we discern our further role as missionaries in East Africa. We have been working for 8 years and our only child is transitioning back to the US for University. We are tired and want to know if we are being SENT from where we have been or if we are called to stay. Thank you!

    • 272

      Thank you JoEllyn, I feel blessed by your prayer. I will pray for you during this great time of change…being an empty nester is difficult and also a wonderful time to reconnect with your spouse. I will pray for where God is calling you to be and that you may feel rest and peace!

  162. 273
    Lori Williams says:

    Hi Beth, I am praying for you, your husband, and your marriage. Praying that you will remember that you are helpless, and it is only Christ who can change the heart of your husband. Cry out to Him, who is the only One who truly knows the wickedness of our hearts, and can and does change them, for His glory and our good. Ask God to show you what He wants to change in your heart, afterall, the Sovereign God of the universe has put in on this path, and His Word tells us that ALL things work for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. That does not mean that everything we go through is good, but that they will work out for good. That good is conforming us to the image of Christ, day by day, for His Glory!! Praying also that you will put on the whole armor of God, daily, so that you can stand. His Word tells us we have to put on, because we don’t wake up fully protected daily. We have a responsibility to take up each piece if armor, daily, and put it on!! Don’t forget….this is how you will be able to stand. I also pray that God will comfort you and give you peace, and that He will restore your marriage. He is, after all, the God of all comfort, the God of peace that surpasses all understanding, and the God of restoration. If you are a born again believer, just take a look at what He has done in your life, restoring your relationship with Him!!

    • 274

      Lori, Thank you for your sweet prayer, it means so much to me. While I have been so focused on my husband’s faults… God convicted me that I need to step back and take a look at myself…..that is a tough one…praying that He will show me the areas that need changing, so I can be His Godly Girl, wife and mother.

      I can not thank you enough for the reminder of applying His armor! My mother had me cover myself in it when I was a little girl and I had forgotten to use it in my daily adult life. Today is a new day and I will cover myself and my husband in it!

      Thank you again for your prayers….I want my happy marriage and home back again and most of all for my husband to be happy with himself, job, and life.

  163. 275

    Please lift up my grandson, Cody, who turned 20 today. He needs Jesus – am praying that our God will minister to his needs and draw him to Him. Cody is intelligent and artistic and very personable, but so drawn to all the ‘free spirit’ nonsense of this day. My heart is burdened for him. Thank you for sharing yourselves.

    I will be lifting your situation to our Lord, Renae – and am asking right now, in Jesus’ name, for the love in your marriage to be restored and healed.

    Brooke Burger says:

    JoEllyn, first of all let me say thank you for the work you and your family have done these last 8 years ( and before I am sure). I pray that you and your family will hear His voice and receive wisdom in what you are supposed to do. Thank the Lord that we know that He has a good plan for us (Jer. 29:11). I have been praying for His guidance a lot recently myself.

    I have just begun a new part of my career and am now a Chaplain for my agency. My main prayer is that I just want to be used by Him. Please pray that the advise and guidance I am giving is good. I want to hear His voice in how he wants to help people. Thanks.

  165. 277
    Debbie says:

    Father I pray for Brooke, that she would have wisdom from your Spirit to reach out to people with your power and strength, That she would always know that your are surrounding her and using her to bring others to yourself.
    Thank-you for the chance to share our requests. Please pray for my son who is not walking with God, is in a relationship with another girl not strong in her faith. Pray for Gods will and that I would be able to release and trust in God for his future.

    Sandra says:

    JoEllen, I pray that God give you a sign as to what he wants you to do, Waiting on God’s timing can be very challenging. Thank you fo all that you do in the mission field. I pray that if you need to return home to rest and recharge that it will happen that way. Sometimes our stepping back aloows someone else to grow and serve. Bless you and enjoy this wonderful time with your daughter,
    I ask that my financial burdon be resolved. I am self employed and the economy has been very difficult. I need to have three procedures done on my eyes and have no insurance. My church fmuily held a fundraiser and raised enough for me to have one eye fixed. I am so blessed. I am legally blind in one eye and they want to operate on my good eye first and that will leave me blind until it heals. Please pray for quick and complete healing. I know that God will hold my hand as I go through this and the rest of the money will be made available or what I have will be enough. I have such peace about this. God is amazing!

    • 279

      I am praying for you, Sandra, as you go through the operation for your eye. Praying for healing…and wisdom and skill for the doctors/nurses helping you. You are very blessed to have a church family helping you financially. You are right, our God is amazing! Praying for continued peace throughout your journey! God Bless!

      EP, I feel your longing to be a mother and a wife. I have struggled in vain to reach those positions in life without waiting patiently for a true man of God to be sent by our Heavenly Father. Each of my attempts has been met with great failure and tremendous pain. Please pray, and continue to be patient. He has a plan for you and it is more amazing than anything you could ever imagine!

    Dear Lord, I need your guidance…I have no idea how i so foolishly chose to be here, I felt sure that this man was placed in my life divinely. He brought me closer to you after all. Because of the You that I saw in his heart, I fell in love and trusted and believed in him. I gave up my job to help him with his business, I gave up my home to be his wife, yet all that ended up happening was that it was all an act, as if in a play. I played the wife…but never became the wife. I allowed him to guide me, lead me, direct my movements but our “families” never did come together. Despite the beer, and the weed, and the pornography, and the self pleasuring, and the emotional infidelities with other women, and the way in which his mother played a better wife than i was ever able to (she has yet to allow us to be, and grow without constantly rescuing him, pampering him, indulging him), I continued to love him. Now Im at a place a few weeks from complete homelessness, without a job, no income, and really nothing to show for anything that Ive done for myself, or for this relationship. I feel so lost and disillusioned. I understand everything happens for a reason, and when he takes away, its to prepare for something better, but how and why am I still hoping and praying for a miracle with this man? Please pray for clarity in my life. Please pray that I will be able to hear the word of God, His direction and instruction for my next step! I am deeply saddened by this “detour” and yet another broken relationship but obviously I am not hearing Him well enough and am definitely not honoring myself like a child of God!

  170. 286

    I loaned someone a large amount of money and was promised that would be paid back in full on July 2, 2012. Am still waiting and have rest of month before income comes again. Have cried out to the Lord as am widow with limited funds but now have to make needed car repairs.
    I am praying for EP with her job situation and desire for life partner and children. One is a lonely number but with Christ you are never alone.

  171. 287

    Pls pray for my marriage as I am having some serious marital problems. Have been married for more than 20 years but now facing huge problems of rejection, incompatibility and direction. Feeling very hurt and not knowing how events will unfold.

      Kim, the Lord knows you are hurting and sees the pain..Please hold tight to His promises of always being with you, loving you…You are His child first and foremost..He is going ahead and planning and placing people in your day to day walk to encourage you, guide you and love you…Rest in His peace that only He can provide…Hold on tight and trust..pray and read the word.”Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him” Isaiah 30:18

  172. 289

    Feeling stuck. No vision to help me move forward in my grieving the loss of the life I had with my husband who has been gone 2yrs now. Need to get a job or find where He wants me to be. For now I am staying prayerful and just ‘being’. Thanks for prayers…

      Patricia says:

      Diane, praying for you to hear in the quiet, His voice. A voice that lets you know “I am with you always”. Praying for you to rest in Him and wait..Praying that God will comfort you at this time of hurt, that he will provide answers to you and that you will know that you will not be stuck forever…That this time is necessary for you to quiet yourself to hearing His messages, His words and most of all that His love and truths will surround you at this time.

    Patricia says:

    This prayer request is for a close friend who’s husband has been out of work since Dec.31/11…The strain on their marriage is extreme. She is working fulltime, trying to manage things at home, is trying to be supportive to her husband, but he is treating her badly – does not appreciate what she does, fires words at her and is verbally abusive…She finds a quiet spot in house to cry out…As well, she has her mother-in-law living with them in the basement which has created added stress as husband and mother don’t see eye to eye….I guess I’m asking for prayers for me as well to know the right things to say to her to encourage her and let her know that things will be fine, when in my mind, I’m thinking they are only getting worse.

  174. 292

    Asking for prayers for my uncles and aunts and my mom. My grandma has been gone since June 6th…She was 96 yr old. Lived a long life. The family is struggling with grief. My uncle whose name is Junior, especially since he was her primary caregiver and had some thoughts that made me worry about him. So prayers please. I know it gets easier with time losing a loved one. But the family is grieving.

    My prayers go out to Diane, the one who commented before me. I ask God to help her with the “feeling stuck” she is working with. Help her to be able to move forward and give her a purpose in life. I ask for blessings of good health, help and continued healing for her.

      God, please provide answers to Ashley for her brother Steven. We know we can’t begin to understand why these things happen to people we love, but please help Ashley with this situation. She needs to know the steps she will need to make here. I pray for the healing to take place, starting now…that through my prayer and others that the suffering and pain won’t last for long and that a light will shine on Steven ~ your truths will be known to all..Blessings and prayers Ashley ~

    Dear God,
    I thank you for Rachel. God I know she must be an excellent mother with a good heart. She is asking for prayer, which means she seeks you. Today I ask that you would lighten her path. Open her eyes today with special discernment for her each and every situation with her children. Grant her peace and blessings today. You have placed a specail love in my heart for her today. I can so relate to what she is experiencing. God you said in Jeremiah 33:3 that we could call on you and you would show us great and mighty things that we know not. God, I ask for Rachel’s paths today that you would guide her each step of the way. Thank you for hearing my prayers. In Jesus name Amen

Please pray DH will take a step toward counseling for both of us. And that God would guide our steps toward reconciliation and a stronger marriage.

    I married into a ready-made family. I became a stepmother to adult children who already had kids. My only experience with kids is as a grandma. Child Protective Services just gave us custody of four of our grandkids (ages 10, 9, 5, and 3). Never having raised children, I am at a loss with what to do with four of them at one time. Please pray that we will keep our eyes fixed on Jesus during this experience. Please pray for their parents, who are trying to clean up the wreckage they have made. You can even pray that God will bring us a reliable vehicle that will fit us all so we don’t always have to take two cars! ;) Any kind of prayer would be appreciated.

  192. 314

    Wow! I realize how completely disarrayed my life is and I am overwhelmed. I know there is nothing too great for God, but for me, that is not the case. I need some prayer, please. Please pray for my sanity and the ability to straighten out my life. (it truly is a mess!) To hear the Lord’s direction as I set about to organize everything. (from getting my son un-addicted to video games to figuring out how to find a job that will support us) And to finding Christian friends who will be here with us. Thank you.

  193. 315

    Carolyn, I will be praying for the Lord’s guidance and wisdom in this journey for you. I will pray you are HIS hands and feet for the children and that you see things through His loving and compassionate eyes.

    I ask praying for courage and strength as I prepare to leave my job/career to stay home with my children. It has been a long journey and one filled with doubts and fears. I ask you keep me and , my marriage and my family in your prayers as we transition to a single income and huge change of living. I know God will provide, I just need help with my faith and trust that He will provide…

    I am praying for courage and strength for you. What a wonderful sacrifice it is that you are making – I know God will certainly bless you for it.

    Having a hard time after breaking up with my boyfriend 2 weeks ago. He is a wonderful Christian man, the man I thought I would marry. He had a nervous breakdown, so at the advice of his psychiatrist, he ended his relationship with me, as he is in no condition at the moment to be able to give anything to a relationship. I am praying for restoration of our relationship, and faith in God’s plan for us.

    I am looking for prayer for myself and my family. We lost my mother recently at the age of 52 and it was very unexpected and shocking. She had a rare heart condition called S.C.A.D. that is undetectable unless someone has a known heart issue and gets a heart scope to look at their heart. The last 6 months have been some of the hardest of my life. Not only did I loose my Mom but one of my best friends. Each day is it’s own battle and I am just asking for the strength and courage to press forward and to look to God for comfort.

    • 341

      Praying for you Sandra. My husband went through some deep hurts with a church. But after making to the other side we realized we were exactly where God needed us to be to give us a heart for ministry. Without the pain, we would hurt for others who hurt the same way. I learned 3 key things:
      1) Nothing is worthless. There is purpose in everything and when you look for that, you refocus your attention on the good.
      2) Forgiveness is necessary, no matter how hard.
      3) God does things in season. Some seasons may come to an end and others may begin. Be willing to change with the season. Please God, not man.

      Praying for you!

      Erica, Praying for boldness and wisdom from the mighty God we serve for you and yours and for God to open doors and gateways of possibilities beyond our imagination. It will ALWAYS seem crazy and intimidating like the story of David and Goliath but we all know who won. Trust, hope and believe He will provide and never leave you or forsake you. Launch away my sister in the Lord!

        Be Courageous! Oh how we need to not live in a spirit of fear but be courageous! Speaking from the heart of someone who has learned forgiveness from being a child of divorce and not receiving the love and nuture of a mother or father to young or busy for me. And later leading me to an unwanted pregnancy at 18 and unmarried with no hope but to abort my precious little baby.

        God has washed my sins away and I am a living testament to that and live with hope today because He loves me and forgave me and that is all I ever needed. So if He can forgive me, he can forgive anyone. In 45 days, God willing my 1st grandchild son will be born. Praise you God!

    So many needs to be met!
    But – Our Heavenly Father – El Shadday – translated “God Almighty “- is able!
    I have experienced almost all, my sisters -in -Christ , have and are experiencing in their lives.
    I have learned that my God is able. He never fails to fulfill His promises as we walk with Him.
    I share this prayer from my devotional (Praying the Names of God by Ann Spangler)with you. “Lord, help me to know you as my All-Powerful God, the one who is able to sustain and bless me, to fulfill every promise He makes. Increase my awe of You and of Your power so that, like Abraham, I may follow You faithfully, always believing You are enough for me, in Jesus Precious Name.” He is El Shadday!
    I heartily recommend the devotional book. It has helped me in my prayer life and also knowing my heavenly Father as who He is.
    May God bless and hear every prayer request of each and every one of you. My prayer request is: for each of my children and their families, and for me as I face the 5th surgery on my spine due to degerative disc and degerative joint disease. I have had a three level fusion on my neck, had a laminectomy on the joint/disc below that, had a laminectomy on my lumbar spine, a fusion on two levels last December and now a possible fusion on L5 and S1 soon. I know what pain is. I have lived with chronic pain for 6 years, when it began on my spine. I have Migraines and also have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 2008. God is my strength!
    I will be praying for you.

  215. 347

    PLEASE PRAY for my blended family. God wants to make things right but it really does take the hearts of all adults involved namely step parent and birth father to yield to Christ. MY HUBBY AND I ARE PRAYING THAT GOD PERFORM A MIRACLE in their hearts and that we be obedient to the Lord also no matter what.

    things are bad but i know what beautiful things GOD can do with bad things, situations, attitudes etc…

    thanks for praying with and for us!

  216. 348

    Please pray for my son who has been struggling with an Eating Disorder for the past 3 ½ years. It is taking a huge toll on our relationship. We have traveled back and forth to treatment centers, hospitals, nutrition; therapist etc….The stronghold on his life with this disease is the hardest trial I have had to endure as I watch, pray and hope for a miracle. He is holding on to so much pain and loss (Dad and cousin both died tragically) that it is hard for him to let go of this ED.

    I am exhausted, disappointed and struggling myself to stay positive and keep believing for the miracle that I have been praying for.

    Thank you and God Bless!

      Lord, please lift up your (and Grace’s) son who has been struggling for the last 3.5 years.

    I would love to have a prayer said on behalf of my family as we still struggle to live on one income. We are doing much better but still need constant reminders to use the gifts that he has given us to their full potential.

    Also, a brief prayer for my husband’s family. We learned this weekend that my sister-in-law’s cancer treatments are not working, and it is slowly becoming evident that He may be calling her Home. This is toughest on my nephew (her youngest) who is still in high school.

    Please pray for my children. My daughter’s husband’s some times verbally abuse them and put the weight of the world on their shoulders to bear. As I watch it seems a control thing. They are far from me and I worry about them. My parent’s are elderly and are now going through a lot of health problems. Sometimes I’m put in the position to where I have to choose who to help first and its very hard. Its also extremely hard to watch your children suffer at the hands of another. Thank you for praying.

    Please pray for our current adoption journey. We have been waiting for two years to find the child(ren) God has for our family. Pray that we will honor Him while we wait. Please also pray for our five year old daughter who has been faithfully praying with us for her little sister (or brother, but she’s convinced it will be a girl!) Thank you so much.

    Juanita, I know I found this thread a little late, but I am praying for you and your family!

    I am separated from my husband and asking God to show me what is His will for my life in this area. It’s been very difficult to accept, however I want to know what He would have me to do since I did not want to separate nor do I want to divorce. Thank you for your prayers.

    I ask for prayer for my oldest son who is starting truck driving school. I pray that he will have good Christian teachers and a holy-spirit filled Christian man to ride with him as he learns the ropes of truck driving. I ask for his protection from all harm. I ask for prayer for my younger son who is in the Air Force and for him to make some friends outside his work area. He is not a video game player and finds it hard to make friends. I pray for at least one really good
    Christian friend for him and Lord I thank you for the wonderful military mom who has prayed with me as my son started bootcamp many months ago and she is praying for my older son and his truck driving. Thank you for friends who pray you through when you can’t seem to find the right words. Norma , I will pray for your daughter.

    This is my last week of unemployment. No leads so far that I can see(smile!).I was in the hospital last week with a kidney stone. Now not only do I owe the IRS,but, the ambulance and hospital and my regular bills this month. I have no insurance and no funds. It looks impossible to man, but I KNOW HE can move ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL mountains for me. I just ask for anyone to stand in agreement with me. Stand in FAITH and BELIEF. I am thanking HIM ahead of time.Thanks for being there!

    Lord, I bring all of Deanna’s requests she spelled out before YOU now. You have seen and heard and knew ahead of time and know the final outcome. I KNOW the plans YOU have for them are good(Jer.29:11). I pray her husband will believe and follow You, the ONE true God all the days of his life(her and her household shall be saved). I pray You will make a way where there seems to be none(debt,perfecting his job and keeping him employed, erasing the past, giving them a clean slate for their marriage). Bless them in everyway possible. More than they could ever think or imagine! We thank You now Lord, for hearing and answering! P.T. L. Amen and Amen

      Lord I ask you to help Brenda lose the weight she needs to. Anything that is getting in the way of this I bind in Jesus’s name. I also ask that you help Brenda with the fear she feels because we are told not to fear, help her see the beauty she has inside her and the love that flows from her. Lord if there is anything that was not mentioned here you know her needs I ask that you send those blessings to her now in Jesus’s name Amen!

    • 372

      Hello, Brenda – my lovely sister in Christ – here’s praying that God hugely supports you each step of the way in those goals and surrounds you with people who will encourage and help walk alongside you in that as well :) Real security / confidence / healing / wisdom are found in God alone – in all areas of life. I’ve been reading a great book lately called So Long Insecurity by Beth Moore that a friend recommended. It has been encouraging me a lot. We all deal with insecurity in one way or another and need to look to God for help to push past those things to live more fully instead into being deeply loved by Him, the beautiful, unique women He created us each to be. I pray that we all would do just that! -Katie

    Father in Matthew 6:32 your word says you know our needs but we are also told to perserve which develops our faith. Lord I am in need of a new car that gets excellent gas milage. I am asking for air conditioning and cruise control. Being a single mom going to school full-time, working and just being a mom has been very hard for the children and I to handle as a family. I pray for blessings to flow on my children and that our financial needs be met. I thank you for your love, your word and for your blessings in Jesus’s mighty name I pray these things Amen!

      Hello, Kathy – I pray that God would continually remind you in small and great ways daily that He is the One who Loves you truest and best and that He is your strong, ever-present, Provider :) He knows your every need and has a plan for good. I pray that God would provide you with just the right car and that He would make His will / direction and hand at work in that clearly evident. I also pray that God would bless you in your classes and work and especially in your relationship with your children. I pray that you and your family would receive all the strength and support and encouragement you need along the way. May God carry you daily and provide you with incredible people to walk alongside you and encourage and help you. Love in Christ, Katie

    Lord Jesus,
    I lift up Mandy to you and her marriage. As I come to share my praise and request for continued light heartedness with my husband and children. And guidance as I go through my house and simplify our things and organize to help bring order to our homeschooling and making our home a refuge. My heart stops and hurts for her. You are a healer. You took a mess of a marriage almost 12 years ago and humbled me and healed it. You filled a void I had and continue to teach me the beauty of submission. I give you glory and I pray for wisdom for Mandy that only comes from you. May she spend the following days at your feet and every momment she reads something new in your bible she will feel renewed and able to continue to fight for her marriage. Protect her and her children and soften her husband’s heart. I can only guess about the situation but I can find comfort knowing you are there with her and oversee every detail. Draw close to the hurting! Amen

    Hi,

    I would appreciate prayer for my son who has a lot of anxiety about moving to a new school as he has Asperger’s and has trouble reading situations and people. I was unaware of this up until recently as he was always such a spirited kid with a lot of spunk. He has taken to hiding away in fantasy books like Pokemon and although he loves it when we read the bible, I am not sure how to offer him hope for the future.

May You bring people, events, and circumstances in her life that will make her draw closer to You and fall more deeply in love with You.

I feel as if he doesn’t even like me anymore and it is getting pretty unbearable. I am praying for God to change our hearts for eachother and for our children.

    My husband and I endured years of infertility and the loss of three pregnancies. After that God blessed us with a daughter we adopted three years ago. We long to continue growing our family – for ourselves and for our daughter who keeps asking for a sister. This morning I had a positive home pregnancy test for the first time in 5 years. Please pray that the life inside me will be strong and healthy, that our family will experience the joy of welcoming a new baby and that our dreams of having more children will be fulfilled.

    My sister is 35 weeks pregnant with a baby who has a very serious and rare heart defect. (Dilated cardiomyopathy) They have decided not to proceed with the heart transplant that would offer just a very small chance for survival. We don’t know if we will get minutes, hours or days with him, or if he will even survive until birth. I am having a very difficult time with this. I haven’t been to church. I can’t pray. I want to be able to lean on God during this time but instead my heart is just filled with anger… I wish there was something more I could do to offer encouragement or hope to my sister as she goes through this un-thinkable situation. Any prayers would mean so much. Thank you!

    • 409
      Beth Williams says:

      Lisa,

      You can always lean on God…just start talking to Him and asking Him for His will in this situation. This may be one of those situations where He is trying to pull you and your family back to Him to dependence on Him alone.

      I pray that all will turn out for the best & that you can see your way to trust God again!

  259. 410

    I;m going thru Holleys book “You’re Already Amazing” and am struggling. I have anxiety and depression and don’t know quite how to open myself up. I’ve battled this for many years, some times better than others. I’d like to ask for prayer for guidance and understanding on how to make changes to my life that will inpact me and my family for the better. I just don’t know how to reach out.

    Jan, I will be praying for strength and endurance for you, your family and your husband/Unit. Lean into God when those “moments” feel overwhelming. Your husband and Unit are doing an incredible job. Be a source of encouragement for him. And God’s word can be your encourager as well. Take Care.

  263. 420

    Please pray for the Lord’s clarity for me – I’m being confronted with some deeply held pain and beliefs that keep me paralyzed with fear. I try to reach out, but part of the lie is that I will do or say the wrong thing and hurt someone, or disappoint my Father. I know the second part of that can’t be true, because we don’t disappoint Him, ever… but I just feel so at a loss and so broken-hearted. The childlike joy I thrived in 10 years ago and more seems to have gone hiding. Seeking Him diligently… Needing His wisdom, grace, and comfort.

  264. 421

    I just finished a grueling week of VBS in our remote, economically depressed, majorly unchurched area. My husband has been working a lot. We haven’t had a chance to connect much lately. I am really struggling with being the kind of wife and mom I want and need to be. He is not being the husband he needs to be either as far as willingness to invest in us. This is not our norm but I need extra prayer right now to stay strong in my heart toward him. In these moments, old feelings of anger, hurt and so on come rearing their ugly heads. Thanks, Toni

    Please pray for me and for my husband as I leave our 31-1/2 year marriage after discovering he has learned of truer feelings for his fellow man, literally. I ask your prayers for courage, strength, and for finally realizing my true life’s passion to raise up people in need, in whatever ways and forms that God leads me to do so.

      Sue, I am so sorry to hear what has happened and I will definitely be praying for courage, strength, and for peace. It’s great that you’re already thinking about encouraging other people in need, but I hope you have people around you, too, that can encourage you right now. We’re praying for you!

        Thank you Kaitlyn! This is the first time I have visited since posting this last November. It’s been a rocky road to say the least, and I find myself facing one challenge after another, but I believe that God is trying to encourage me to approach everything with strength and fortitude.

    Could you please pray for me and my children, that we may find a new town to live in where my kids will be safe and grow up in your eyes, a job so I may support my children and a house I can afford, and where I may be blessed with meeting a wonderful man and find true love. Thank you.
