    • Dear Heavenly Father,

      Today I want to lift up “M” to You. I pray Lord that they hear when You tell us that we are “not to have a spirit of fear but of power, love and self-discipline” (1 Timothy 2:17) and that “we can do everything through Christ who gives us strength” (Philippians 4: 13). Knowing these truths Lord help us remember that we have no reason to fear; for You, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, are on our side… Help us remember we don’t have to be courageous or “strong” for “Your power is made perfect in our weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9); we just need to be courageous enough to fullheartedly turn over the reigns to You… Please help us to remember the only confidence that we need to have is in You… because we know You will never fail us. Please comfort “M” and help them and their family to have a blessed day.

      In the Name of our Savior Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

      Numbers 6: 24-26

    • Praying for courage and confidence for M. I need strength for one more year of work before retirement . Have been drowning in stress even though I know God is with me. I pray for all these prayer warriors and am so thankful for them in the midst of such a crazy world.

      • Father, bring renewed strength and confidence to Sharon as she continues her work… although the stress will come, give her Your peace… may she draw from Your well to meet her needs… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

    • M,

      Praying for you sweet sister! Take away her fear & give her courage, confidence & encouragement. Help her in this battle to know you are there for her ALWAYS! Bring people along side her to encourage her in this daily walk. Give her the will to trust you completely!

      (((((Hugs)))))

    • Father, be especially close to M today… wrap her in Your arms of love and comfort her. May she find strength and encouragement by leaning on You… keep Satan from having the victory… may she know Your presence in a very real way today, and in the days to come… thank You, Father…. in Jesus’ name…

    • Dear Father,

      I am lifting “M” up in prayer. I pray that you will strengthen her, give her confidence and Hope that only you can give give her. The strength to never give up and to pray without ceasing; for I know you are a God who answers prayer.
      Thank you Father for hearing my prayer and for strengthening each one of my sisters in faith and courage.
      In Jesus name Amen.

    • I pray for my dear sister M for I know that the thoughts you have towards her are of peace to give her hope and a wonderful future. Father guide her heart as you watch over her in Jesus mighty name.

      Please i need God to touch the heart of my daughter and heal and deliver her. She misses her late dad. Thanks

      • Dear Lord,
        Please hold Elizabeth’s daughter close to your heart as she walks through her healing process with her late dad. Give her strength and show her that You are the way to her healing. Show her that her beautiful memories of him will always give her courage and make her smile. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

        • Dear Lord,
          Please keep my son’s safe and hold them in your arms and whisper to them, that loving You and being who they are sober, is so much better than walking this life alone, and who they are when they are on drugs and alcohol. They both struggle with addiction, lack of self confidence and lack of self esteem. My heart aches as I don’t know how to help them, other than to give them to You. Thank you for being my stronghold through this difficult time. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    • Dear Lord, thank you for sister M for she is not alone. I too am afraid for unforeseen circumstances that have risen within our family. I will continue to pray not only for myself, but for M as well. You, almighty God, have always granted us your favor in our time of need as know You will for M. Be Still and Know….

    • Seeking peace and confidence that the Lord has me exactly where He wants me. Even at 63 years of age He has me in youth ministry. Pray that my co-workers see my value in our work through Jesus’ eyes not the worlds.

    • Praying for you M. God bless you richly in all areas of your life. I pray you will see yourself through Jesus ‘ eyes and heart. He loves you so much! He would never tell you the lies satan has been telling you about yourself. Let Jesus help you stand up now (we don’t do anything alone), look in His eyes filled with love beyond human understanding just for you. And I pray as your confidence in that love grows it will spill from your heart into every area of your life especially in the area of your knowledge of how precious your are to our Lord.

    • Please pray for my daughter M and me. We both have MS. This truly has an effect on everything we do. We both work full time, try to remain positive, but it’s tough. MS is very misunderstood. We need our God’s healing strength.
      Thank you!

    • I pray that God would fill you dear one with all of His tremendous strength, grace and confidence. He is our strength when we feel weak and makes up for all we feel we are lacking. He will go to battle for you and give you all you need.

      I ask for prayer for my husband who is being brutally attacked at work that he would find a new job and God would bring restoration and healing to him.

    • Philippians 4:13New King James Version (NKJV)

      13 I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.

      I will pray for you!

  1. Ladies of (in)courage,

    I want to share a moment of rejoicing and offer a praise… I am so grateful for this site. I have learned so much from these women. There is such a strong sense of welcoming community and true christ-like love here with only honest intentions behind every word that I hadn’t really known before. It’s a safe place for me. Because of this community I have grown in being able to reach out to others. Thank you. With that, my prayer request would be that I am able to have the right words at the right time and that they come out correctly… also, that I may continue to learn to be more God-centered rather than self-centered. Thank you again; I pray all of you lovely ladies have a blessed day.

    This side of Heaven,
    Summer Rae

      ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:23‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
      http://bible.com/72/pro.15.23.hcsb

      I’m asking for prayer for my physical and mental health. I’m fighting effects of MS and for the past 4 fall/winter season I’ve experienced severe depression and anxiety (Seasonal Affective Disorder- SAD). I’m praying that, as the days grow shorter and colder, I will grow more joyful!

      • Father God! Thank you for Judy. I pray for strength and healing upon her at this time of seasons changing, and her health not at 100%. Help her to call out to You on a daily basis. At the Name of Jesus Satan will Flee!! Praise God! I ask you to cover her with the blood of Jesus, claiming healing of body, mind and soul. For Your will to be done as she seeks to serve You above all things. Help Judy to feel Your presence when she is down in the dumps and not let Satan win by discouraging her. Fill her with unmistakable JOY that comes from You! Bring people into her life that can bless and encourage her. We ask this in the Name of Jesus, Amen!

      • Dear Lord, thank you for my sister, Judy. I lift her up to you and pray that you will touch her body and soul with your light and healing presence. Thank you Lord that You are Light and in You there is no darkness at all!
        Psalm 36:9 says, “For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.” Lord, please help Judy this fall and winter to overcome SAD through your loving power.
        In Jesus’ Name, Mary

      • Father, Wrap Judy in your loving arms – help her to especially feel the closeness of Your presence. Give her strength as she journeys this illness… bring healing… bring peace… keep Satan from his attempts to bring discouragement… help her to see the beauty in each new day as she trusts in You… in Jesus’ name…

    • Lord, today I am praying for Summer Rae. Your Word says “a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver”. Please, Holy Spirit, at the right time in the exact right place give Summer Rae the words she needs. Remove the self-doubt that may cause her to not say a word when the opportunity is present.
      Thanks for the growth Summer Rae and I have experienced being a part of this group and more importantly being in Your Word. Continue to work in our lives to keep our eyes and hearts focused on You and not ourselves.
      Lord, please continue to bless incourage as they direct us to You. Give us a great day of worship today! In the mighty name of Jesus.

    • Thank you Jesus for how you have encourage Summer Rae through this site. It brings me great joy to see how you take care of each person so specifically and that she feels safe and cared for. I pray that you would continue to use it to encourage her heart and teach her how to know you more deeply.

May she be filled with your love for others.
      In Jesus name, Shelly

  2. Our beautiful 40 year old daughter, Stacy, went to be with Jesus last evening. She went into cardiac arrest, had emergency surgery to remove her spleen, she had a mass in her liver that ruptured. Her body just could not recover from all of the trauma. I am going to miss her so. Our hearts are broken. We especially ask for prayers for her two sons Max (just turned 13) and Mason (9) and our son in law Jason.

    • Dear Suzann.
      My heart is broken by reading your post. I will pray very hard for you because as a mother i can hardly imagine what You are going by. I have very strong fears for my eldest girl who will turn 28 in few months and does not seem to find here place in this earth… I know That Stacy will be ok now. I will pray for her and your family with all my love and compassion

    • Suzann,

      Prayers for you, your family & her family! Losing a loved one is never easy, but losing a child is hard! May God draw near to you all now. I pray you feel the love, & hugs from friends & us here at in (Courage). May God’s peace enter you mind, body & soul.

      (((((Hugs))))

    • Oh Father, our hearts are broken with Suzanne and her husband at this tragic death of their daughter Stacy – it seems unthinkable for a mother to face such a loss, but Father help her to trust that You are her comfort and her peace… may she feel wrapped and secure in Your love.

May you be surrounded by the love and ministering of your family and friends during this sad and shocking time. May you be comforted in the days and months ahead as you all learn to adjust to your daughter’s absence here on earth. May you cherish and embrace the very best of memories to carry you through the days ahead. May God send each of someone very special to help you through this most difficult season. Most of all, may you find rest and peace in our Savior Jesus who has beforehand gone and prepared a place to receive your beautiful daughter. I am so sorry for your loss.

      • Thank you all for your powerful prayers and words of comfort. I am leaning on my Savior-my HOPE is in Him as we begin our new normal. God Bless, Suzann

  3. I overdosed on aspirin today… I want trying to suicide, but I was definitely trying to harm myself. I’ve been battling depression and anxiety for years now, and today it was just to much for me. Hence the overdose. I have excellent support and people here are pursuing for me, which I am so grateful for, and I was discharged from hospital, but I still feel unwell and have no idea how to pay about this. I’m scared…

    • Papa God, I lift Laura to you. Surround her with Your love, Your comfort, Your people who can care for her and lift her up to You. But Papa, most importantly surround her with people who truly see her as the loving, amazing, awesome daughter of the King that You created her to be.

      In Jesus’ name,
      amen

      Layra, I will continue to be praying for you…

    • Laura I will pray for you. Hold on and stay strong, seek the help you need to remain on this earth. You are a miracle and a gift as you were fearfully and wonderfully made. You are his, hold on to him xxx

    • Laura Dee,
      I have battled anxiety and depression for 50+ years. I KNOW the dark and hopeless place it can take you. I know the desire to want to end it all to get relief from the tortuous thoughts and feelings. But, God has a reason you are still here. He loves you and you are his beautiful and beloved daughter. I know I needed to take my medicine regularly….no exceptions and I needed to see a good Christian therapist or counselor who helped me see my worth in God’s eyes. I am praying, earnestly, that you won’t give up because there CAN be joy and good things for you. Often, “Jesus help” were the only words I could pray. He hears you and He loves you and He wants more for your life….believe me. Praying for you sweet sister. You are loved!!
      Love and prayers,
      Bev

    • Laura Dee, I encourage you to seek help for your depression and anxiety. Talk to your doctor about medication for those issues. If you have been taking meds then the doctor needs to know they’re not working well. Get some good Christian counseling also. It sounds like you have supportive people in your corner, but you need to take the advise of good counsel and medical doctor/team. The Lord sees you right where you are. He’s a gentleman though, He won’t barge into your life but rather waits patiently for you to come to Him.
      My prayers are with you as you pursue your freedom for the chains of depression and anxiety.

    • Laura Dee,

      Just cry out to Jesus. Say His name & He will hear you. He knows your every need. I am here for you sweet sister. Seek any help you need. Praying that His love & peace will enter you mind, body & soul. Remember this: Psalm 139: 13-14 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, know that full well. He knew you before you were born! He loves you enough to make you in HIS IMAGE!!

      (((((HUGS)))))

    • Father, Be with Laura Dee… wrap her in Your loving arms, bring her comfort and peace… surround Laura Dee with Your presence, and with the presence of other godly women who can support and encourage her. Father, help her not to allow Satan to have victory, but help her to trust You – moment by moment… bring to her good doctors who can help her with any medical issues, and lift this veil of depression that is overwhelming her… help her to feel Your love… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

    • Dear Laura Dee. We grieve with you in your pain. We lift you up to the One who is Healer. We praise Him for the work He’s already done and continues to do in your heart. And we encourage you to seek professional counseling and assistance, because we are FOR YOU and for your heart and for your life well lived. May you feel His peace and strength today.

    • Jinger,
      I pray that you remember that YOU are God’s handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for you.(Ephesians 2:10) I am sure that the work of starting a business is hard, I pray that you listen(and follow) the still, small voice of God in all that you do.
      May God continue to bless you and your efforts!

    • Father, Lead and guide in Jinger’s life as she begins this new journey in her life… give her wisdom and strength, but mostly help her to trust in You and let her life be a reflection of You in all that she does… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  8. Good morning. Please pray for my heart. My heart was broken by someone I thought was a friend. Instead of telling me they did not want me to be my friend the person just cut off all communication with me.

    • Dear Jesus, I bring Liza before you today. She is deeply hurting within her heart and soul. To be wounded by friends is one of the most difficult things we go through in life. Help her to find comfort and rest in Your Everlasting Arms. May there be reconciliation between her and this other person, if this is Your will for her life. As difficult as it is to let someone go, sometimes it is necessary to grow in our walk with You, but we cannot see that at the time. It is in the hindsight of life that we see where You have brought us from that broken moment. Help Liza to trust You and to trust others that are close to her. We all need someone in our lives and I thank you for the friends and support that she does have that can help her through this difficult heartache. Bring healing in the Name of Jesus, Amen.

    • Dear Abba Father,
      I lift up to you your cherished and loved daughter, S. We all have a sense of what it means to lose sight of Hope and you alone know her hurts and fears and loss of expectations. I ask that you will open her eyes to see you today, open her heart to experience your love for her, even if it is in the tiniest things , even if it is in her darkest, distant times. You are there. You have not forgotten her. Every step she has taken is with purpose that you will not waste. Convince her that nothing she does is in vain and that her life is not over. Help me to keep my sister in prayer today. I ask all this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen.

    • Father, Wrap S in your loving arms today, and in the days to come… help her to know Your presence and Your peace… help her to trust You… and know You as her first love… may she sense the leading of Your Holy Spirit… bring joy to her life – through friendships and others who care about her… guide her as she faces an uncertain future… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

I recently experienced a church split, lost my ministries and my job at the church. I’m mourning for the loss of my church family. I have found a new church home after many weeks of searching but it’s still not home. Please pray that I can press into Jesus more and worry less. I so appreciate and covet your prayers.

  20. I find myself feeling so very “alone” even around others. Please pray that I will not give in to sadness.

    • Heavenly Father, I pray for Martha right now. I pray that you’d lift the melancholy. I pray for her to encounter people today who truly see her and interact with her. Invite her to Your word that has so much evidence of Your love for Martha. You love her so much and can empathize with her loneliness because you encountered it as well, the man of sorrows. Put people around her full of comfort, peace and joy and do not let her sit in isolation but willing to risk being around others. Bring to mind a service that she might provide others that in turn might ease her loneliness while being a blessing to others as well. I pray that You would bind all oppression and cast it away. Help her to lean into the freedom that You’ve provided for her by Your sacrifice made for her, Lord. Thank you Father for seeing, truly seeing Martha and answering her prayers
      Isaiah 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

    • Father, Be close to Martha today – and in all her tomorrows… life the blanket of sadness that enveloped her and instead help her to feel wrapped in Your presence and comfort… bring Your joy into her life to replace the sadness… help her to rest her weary soul in You… and trust You… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  21. Thank you for praying for me. I cherish every word taken to the throne of God on my behalf. My request is for wisdom in making deliberate decisions regarding a certain relationship. That I would stop wavering, for it is so tiresome and affects every part of my life, physically and emotionally. Thank you.

    • Heavenly Father, I pray for strength, discipline and courage for Mary. Help her to see the depth of love that you have for her; how jealous you are for her. You are her redeemer and restorer. Give her the grace and strength to turn away from this unhealthy relationship trusting You in the circumstances

  22. We are facing a new job transition with a pay cut and preparing and selling a house. I have no doubt this is the opportunity God brought us at the right time, but it’s still terrifying to take a financial cut in pay and have so much we are facing. The unknown brings a lot of fear. Prayers are much appreciated.

    • Lord, I pray for strength and courage for Kimberly and her family. I pray Lord that You will guide them and give them peace and joy as they make this transition fully trusting You.

    My prayer request is that my daughter would be healed completely from the eating disorder with which she has been plagued for the past five years. She has made tremendous strides after admitting she needed professional assistance and then willingly following the plan. Pray for continued diligence. Thank you.

    • Dear Dawn

      People very close to me and I myself struggle with an eating disorder as well. I am so glad to hear that your daughter has made such great progress. So even though it is still something that I struggle with. God has healed my heart of so many of the wrong perceptions and ideas that lead to the ED in the first place and I believe with all my heart that complete freedom fom ED is possible. So here is my prayer for your daughter:

      Dear Lord

      I lift Dawn’s daughter up to You today. Thank you that she is making such great progress in being healed from the eating disorder. I pray that You will finish in her the healing that you started and that she may have true and complete freedom from this eating disorder. May her identity be always placed in You and may she truly know and feel the great love you have for her. Protect her from the thoughts and lies that may have lead to the eating disorder. When she doubts or starts feeling discouraged in her progress,may she run to you and find her strength to continue the good fight.

      Be with Dawn and all those who are close to her daughter. Give them wisdom and understanding when they do not know what to do to help and give them peace and joy as they trust in You to heal her completely.

      In Jesus’s name
      Amen

      • Thank you so much, Barbara. It encourages me to hear that someone believes that EDs can be totally overcome. (I do, as well!) Your encouragement helped. I, too, have struggled with depression. Medication is necessary in my case, so if you are not taking anything, you might look into the possibility.

        “Dear Father, place Your healing, loving hands on Barbara today. Remove the heavy chains that the enemy wants to use to keep her down. Give her freedom and abundant life, your choice for her. Show her Your love this day. Amen”

    • Father, Be close to Dawn’s daughter as she struggles with this eating disorder… may she continue on the journey of healing… keep Satan from drawing her back… surround her with Your armor and Your protection… may she know Your peace and joy, and may she rejoice in the victory of healing… guide Dawn – in the ways that she supports her daughter, help her to be Your reflection… Thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  24. I am feeling really depressed and I am really struggling to bring it to God and to find joy again.

    • Lord, I pray for Barbara to stand firm in her faith in the power of God despite how she feels.. Lord, we pray for an end to this depression in Jesus’ Name! Replace depression with your joy.

      Barbara, I’m the Judy who wrote about SAD. I understand what you’re experiencing, and I continue to pray for you and all of my sisters who experience attacks of depression and anxiety!

      • Thanks so much for the prayer Judy, it means a lot to me!

        I pray that you too may find true joy in this winter season.
        May God give you peace and hope and may He be your strength when you feel weak in your depression. I pray that ultimately you may be completely healed from depression and anxiety.
        Amen

    • Father, Wrap Barbara in Your love and peace… help her to feel Your presence in the face of this depression… lead her to physicians and others who might be helpful to her healing… guide her by Your presence even when she doesn’t feel close to You… help her to know that You are always there… and that You love her with overflowing love as her heavenly Father… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

    • Barbara,
      I encourage you to seek medical attention if the deep depression continues. As one who has suffered severe depression, I know what a toll it can take on you. Joy IS possible and God does want you to have life and have it abundantly. Depression is an illness – not a character flaw or lack of faith. Take your prayers to the Lord and take your concerns to a doctor. God can and does bless us through medical intervention and counseling….I know….I’ve been there. Praying for your joy to return and your emotions and feelings to we well and whole again. Our God is able!!
      Love and ((hugs)),
      Bev

  26. I am praying for you, M that you would feel God’s presence with you today and know that no matter the circumstances, He is with you. I often feel a lack of confidence and the verses that Summer Rae shared are ones that I lean on too. You are never alone.

    Please pray that my husband will come to know Jesus. He is very supportive of my faith and has such a kind heart, but struggles to see that Jesus is for him as well.

Lord, guide my path to healing with wisdom, discernment, faith, belief and courage. I also pray for favor and joy as we celebrate my husbands birthday tomorrow. Amen

  30. So much is going on in my life right now. I am busy working full time as a preschool teacher. I finally completed a book I’ve been working on for the last five years and it is in the hands of a content editor. I should receive it back this week. I suddenly have feelings of inferiority and questioning who am I to think anyone would want to read my book. I am going to turn 65 years old on my next birthday and feel the time is precious and there’s not enough of it. I pray that the Lord would calm my fears and give me direction for the next steps. Thank you for your prayers. I appreciate it.

    • Debbie, I’m a writer and I know what you’re going through. Writing is a gift and an art. When we write, there is always that question of whether it is good enough. Don’t let it deter you from the gift that has been born within you. The enemy never wants us to realize the blessings God has for us. He wants us to doubt ourselves and not allow us to get to our greatest potential. Stay the course and know that your God given gift is not for you…it’s to be a blessing to others. It will be brilliant!

    • Good for you, Debbie. How exciting. As much as I love to read, I should be able to write superlative books. Smile. Best wishes for a successful book launch. Blessings.

    • Father, Be close to Debbie and help her to feel Your presence in real and tangible ways during this time of uncertainty in her life… help her to know Your peace as she waits to hear about her book… strengthen her for the work You have called her to do… surround her with Your love… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

We know You want what is best for each of Your children and we ask Your healing of this baby’s body, Lord. Eliminate this mass, Lord. You create and have power over each and every cell in our bodies and I beseech You, in the name of Jesus to heal this precious baby. You are our healer and protector, our Jehovah-Rapha.

    • I’m praying for you, Shelly, to have the strength and wisdom to be the mom you should be in this situation. I’m so sorry for your having to watch the hurt in your child’s life and marriage, but I’m trusting with you that God is a God of restoration.

    • Dear Lord, bless K. Ann as she deals with her insurance company. Let favor fall on her situatiin and bring her a good and positive outcome.

    • Hi K Ann,

      I know you don’t know me but I have experience with Health insurance Appeals. If the procedure was medically necessary by law they cannot Bill you. It’s probably for medical necessity sometimes these situations look cosmetic when there a medical emergency. check with the billing company to make sure they’re using the right diagnosis code and procedure code and that their notes support your procedure. Also if they’re denying because it wasn’t pre-authorized emergencies don’t fall under the pre-auth situation. If you need more help please email me at RHORUN@MSN.COM.

      Sincerely,
      Rhonda R.

    • Father, You know each of the circumstances in our lives, and You know about this insurance problem that K. Ann is facing… give her peace as she works to have this bill paid… help her to trust You, and rest in the assurance that You are our Great Provider… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

    • Father, Simply put – may Mady be Your reflection to her family… may she show others Your love and Your greatness by her words and by her actions… may others see Christ in You… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  35. Psalm 46:10

    blessings to all,

  36. My family is fractured, so many broken relationships, please pray that hard hearts would be softened & relationships restored. I only see this happening by the renewing of minds through the Holy Spirit, but sadly most of the family members with hardened hearts don’t know the Lord. So please ask the Lord to call those people by name, pull them close to Him and show them such an overpowering example of love that they will change their minds & turn from darkness to light, away from the power of Satan towards the grace of Jesus.

    • Father Fod, help heal Stacy’s family. Let your light shine upon this family filled with brokenness. Show them the way, open doors to forgiveness and kindness.

It will be a huge change, a good change, but we are nervous. We are glad that we have the freedom to choose a Christian based education school since that is what we have done over the years through Sonlight. I think it will be hardest on me and I ask for peace and strength! Also for a friend of mine that has cancer and I have not heard from her or been able to get ahold of her since Aug 8th. She is not a believer. Pray for the situation and for wisdom and clarity to know what I can do. Thank you my sisters

    • Father, Be close to Lydia and her children as they start a new school year in a new setting… may the foundation that has been established for the children through homeschooling carry them through the days ahead… might they find new opportunities to make friends and grow in You… thank You for the privilege of being able to have Christian schools where the Bible is still honored and taught… Be with Lydia’s friend… may she find healing… may she be safe… Father, give Lydia peace, comfort her and surround her with Your love… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  44. Please pray for loneliness. After 21 years of marriage, I filed for divorce. After he left, I felt free, but I also realized how much I desire the companionship that we never had. My kids are busy with their lives, they don’t need mom like they used to, and my friends are busy with their families. I try to have faith that God will fulfill the desires He put in my heart, but day after day, it’s a struggle to hold onto hope and not feel forgotten.

    • Prayers big for you ! ❤️

      “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
      he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.”
      – ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    • Father, Surround Jennifer with Your love and peace… may she know Your presence in real ways… may she come to trust You more and more each day… may she rest in Your presence and Your strength… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

    • Jennifer,
      After 25 years of marriage, my husband left. I know the feelings of abandonment you feel – especially at this stage in life when your children have lives of their own. It is a hard road to walk, but God is faithful. Take hold of His righteous right hand and he will walk with you THROUGH the valley. He will not leave you stuck there. My divorce drew me into such a close relationship with God….He is able to bring beauty from the ashes. Praying this truth for YOU to day. Be good to yourself. Ask for help. Don’t allow yourself to become isolated. Seek support. God loves you dearly….just because one person doesn’t see your immense worth, doesn’t mean that God and others don’t. You are beautiful and you are loved.
      Love and ((hugs)) sweet sister,
      Bev xo

  45. I ask that you please pray for my friend Angelo for the salvation of his soul. Thank you so much for your prayers! Blessings and love to you all ❤️

    • Father, I pray and lift up Angelo to You, that he will come to know You as his Lord and Savior, that He will invite You into his heart, and accept Your amazing gift of forgiveness and salvation… be with Stephanie, help her to be Your reflection to Angelo – may he see Christ’s love in Stephanie… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  46. Dear Lord,
    I lift up “J” to you. Wrap your loving arms around her and let her feel the peace only you can give. The world holds no easy answers for the situation that is affecting her. Help her to keep her heart and mind focused on you. Please send caring people into her life who can help her in the world while sharing your love and grace with her. Help her to accept and have faith in your guidance. Lead her, pull her in the way she should go knowing that you are the one she can trust. Asking this all in Jesus name. Amen

    My prayer need is that God will continue to remove the anger that I feel due to some things that have happened in my life and replace it with the peace that only he can give.

    • Father, Be close to Bethany today – help her to feel Your presence… help her to not let Satan have control in her life by continuing in her anger, but help her to give it to You… help her to trust You for healing, and give her Your peace… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  47. Hi
    My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for nearly 3 years. Can you please pray for me to keep standing in faith for this.
    Thank you

    • Father, Be close to Emma and her husband as they desire to bring a new little life into the world… Father, You are the giver of life, and I pray that they will be able to trust You, and find peace in You… give them faith, keep them strong, surround them with Your peace… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  48. I’m asking for agreement in prayer. That like the soldier, our entire household will come to faith in Christ!

    • Father, I join with Brenda in prayer for the salvation of her family… may they come to realize Your amazing gift of forgiveness and salvation, may they come to know You as Lord and Savior… may Brenda be Your reflection to them… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  49. I am at a loss of what to do and I feel Satan working hard on me and my family. My husband has a pornography addiction and was over 6 years in recovery when he relapsed last Oct. I only learned about the relapse in May. He stopped, restarted recovery efforts, dealt with consequences and more. He confessed a slip last week. Except then earlier this week I discovered more and the amount of lies and deceit is crushing to me. Even if it’s ‘not that bad’ by some standards. We had so much better. I know recovery is possible. But this latest has me questioning, on a whole new level, whether that’s the path he will choose and what that means for our family. Our teenage children know and are crushed. We just moved states and they don’t have their support networks. I know I need to feel my various feelings in order to heal and move forward through them. Sometimes they feel so intense that I want to hurt myself to give them a pathway out. I know that’s false and so I don’t & I use my own trauma recovery tools to help. But sometimes it is crushing. I feel lost and confused about the next steps to take and pray desperately to know God’s path with the clarity to take it with courage.

    • Oh Father, wrap Heather in Your tender and loving arms, help her to feel Your peace and Your love… I bring her husband to You, Father, and ask that Satan will no longer have the victory in his life with this addiction, but that he will turn from Satan and seek to serve You as His Lord and Master… Father, give Heather and the children peace in their new home… bring others into their lives to befriend and support them… may they know Your comfort and Your strength… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  50. Dear Lord,
    I Luger up all these great women who have come before us and asked for prayer.
    Please sent strength and faith to Emma and her husband as they have tried to have children . God , you know the plans you have for them , maybe the time is now to bless them with a bundle of Joy . Until then , lift them up with prayers of strength and faith as well as courage as they go through this process .

    I would like to ask for pray for my family , particularly my daughter Kk and Zackh as they lost pretty much all from Hurricane Harvey ! We are all blessed to be alone and to have one home ( our home ) to line on while they rebuilt theirs. I know they are staying strong and are blessed with so many great people around that are volunteering help and support . I know this is going to be a long journey as they only bought the home about 6 months ago and have been working their butts off to remodel , now it’s pretty much a total loss .
    Thank you

    • Father, Be close to Jen’s daughter and son-in-law as they have been so devastated by the recent flooding… may they rest assured in Your protection – thank You for sparing their lives… may they be strengthened for the work ahead… bring others alongside them to help them as they rebuild… meet their every needs… help them to see Your presence and Your power and Your peace… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  51. I am a 66 year old mother of 2, first born 46 and younger son 32. My oldest boy committed suicide, shot himself in the head while severely drunk in April. So, thank you for all the prayers.

    • Father, Be close to Nancy as she grieves the tragic death of her son… may she feel Your presence and Your peace… may she trust in Your… comfort her in the hurts of this death… help her to rest in You… thank You Father, that You love us and care about our every hurt, our every need… in Jesus’ name…

  52. Please pray that through my doubts, I believe in Jesus. Also, that I will stand up and be a light on my volleyball team(I’m a highschool student).

    • Father, Thank You that You have promised never to leave us or forsake us… help Mary Margaret to trust in You and rest in the promise that You have promised to be with us always… help her to be Your reflection on her volleyball team and among her classmates and friends… may others see You in her and desire to claim You as their Savior… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  53. I haven’t posted on these in a long time but today I need prayers of others. I’m on my knees begging the Lord and can’t do it alone. Shouldn’t.
    My anxiety is high because I’m surrounded by health yuck. None mine but those I love.
    On a dream trip to Alaska last week, my almost-70 year old mom fell REALLY BADLY in a town. The ship doctor did surgery on her face. It’s all healing OK but now her knee is infected on the inside. I live thousands of miles from her. She’s single and I’m an only child. I can do nothing from here and she’s stubborn. Pray for healing but also that she would ask for help from others. She’s super independent.
    The other is dear local friends. They have 3 week old twins and one was in the hospital for two days this week. 6 hours after she came home, her brother went to the ER. They have what would be a common tummy bug in an adult but is meningitis in newborns. Pray for parents Adam and Haley (she NEEDS to eat to keep up strength for feeding two babies), logistics of covering home and other kids and getting breast milk where it needs to be, etc. Pray for Haley’s anxiety. She’s having a really hard time. This is for sure treatable but it’s horrible seeing your newborn all hooked up to things and being pumped with antibiotics.
    It’s simply “all the things”. It’s heavy on me.
    Oh, also, I’m 7 months in to a job restructure (I work for a ministry) and have NO CLUE what my job is going to be. I’m 46 years old. Is this a time for a new career? I am dream-less and have no idea what to do. I still long to be home with kids but that hasn’t been the Lord’s plan.
    Sorry for the verbal vomit. Thank you for praying, dear internet friends.

    • Father, Surround Kristen with Your love and Your peace… may she feel the comfort and security of Your loving arms… be with her mom… help her to heal well… give wisdom and skill to the physicians… give Kristen comfort as she is so far away from her mom… be with her friends who are coping with such sick infants… Father, bring healing… give rest to this new mom, and help her to have the strength and energy to walk this difficult journey by trusting in You… and help Kristen to know Your perfect will for her life… help her to listen for Your Holy Spirit’s leading, and help her to rest in You… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  54. Please pray for wisdom, courage, provision and a cheerful countenance/grateful heart as I go forward in Godly stewardship.

    • Father, Be close to Sonia and help her to feel Your presence… I pray that she will have the wisdom and courage to serve You well… I pray that You will meet her needs… I pray that You will bring joy to her life that will overflow into a cheerful countenance so that she can be a blessing to others… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  55. please pray for me for a new job, something that will pay me a good amount more than what I am earning, that will allow me to get home on the early side for my daughter, and allow me to have vacation time with my family, but something that will allow me to use my gifts. my current job is rough, doesn’t require a college degree (which i have) and is very physical. I can’t find work using my skills. Even if I kept my present job and was able to find work from home extra income, that would be so wonderful. But overall…I don’t want to become hopeless and bitter. I don’t want to feel like God has forgotten me. I know He has not, I know He has a plan. Thank you for asking how you could pray, thank you for caring.

    • Father, I join with Lou in prayer… provide the right job, in Your perfect timing… and bring rest and peace in this time of uncertainty… bring a real awareness of Your presence… and assurance that You hold us firm in Your hands and never let us go or forget us… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  56. Please pray for my daughter who is beginning high school. She has social anxiety and hasn’t connected with any new acquaintances yet. She is spending her lunch and break times alone. I pray that she is able to walk with courage and confidence to meet new friends. Her anxiety just paralyzes her and keeps her from showing her kind, gentle and sweet and funny spirit to the world. Thank you in advance for your prayers for her.

    • Father, Be with Margarita’s daughter as a new school year begins… give her peace… help her to rest and trust in Your… bring new friends into her life who will encourage and support her, and those to whom she can also be an encouragement and support… calm her anxious spirit, and help her to know Your love… thank you for the gifts You have blessed her with… may she use them to bring honor to You… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  57. To all my brothers and sisters as we stand in the gap for each other. I hold dear to these words “If He brought you to it. He will bring you through it “. I pray in the end that All will be well with each of you. In Jesus name. Amen

  58. Please pray for physical strength for me as we get ready for exhibiting livestock at the fair and as I prepare for two days of judging at another fair. Pray that we might represent the Lord well and bring glory to his name.
    Thank you,
    Sandy

    • Father, Be with Sandy and her family… thank You for the gift You’ve given them to raise and care for animals – help them to be strengthened during these days of exhibition… give strength to Sandy – equip her for the tasks You have given her to do… may this family be Your reflection to light the way for others to come to know You… thank You Father… in Jesus’ name…

  59. Today is my dad’s birthday. The present he desires most of all is the healing of my younger sister who has advanced metastatic breast cancer and is currently in hospital. I am a cancer survivor myself having been diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer in 2015 but by God’s grace I am all clear now. I want the same miracle for my Sister because I know that there is nothing the Lord cannot do. Her doctors have said there’s not much more they can do for her but I have hope that He who healed the sick and raised the dead has not changed and can turn things around.
    Thank you for your prayers.

    • Susannah –
      My mother is a 16+ year cancer survivor, so I know the pain that the disease can cause a family. I’m praying for peace, comfort and understanding for your family along with healing for your sister. May you all feel God’s presence surrounding you.

He can perform miracles. I’ve witnessed it in my own life personally. Praying for your sister to be healed this side of Heaven.

      (((((Hugs)))))

  60. As I sit here with my coffee contemplating what to ask you to lift up in prayer, I am feeling overwhelmed. My biggest struggle right now is financial. I have been unemployed since November and have almost maxed out my credit cards just to survive. I feel like I have dug myself into such a hole and don’t know how to get out. I know that I made some bad decisions over the past year, so I fear that God is punishing me. I guess I really need his guidance. I do have faith that God has a plan, but I desperately need direction.

He is neurologically challenged after the death of his mother, a father who left him with an abusive friend to care for him, losing his sister when she was adopted , etc. He’s a very brave ten year old but now has none of his family left.

I don’t even know what to ask for, I just don’t want my soul to hurt anymore, I want to be happy again. I don’t think I ever will. What have I done so bad.

      God is always at your side. Even if the whole world abandons us or passes away, God is our constant companion. You have suffered so much loss, I encourage you to seek professional help with the depression you are experiencing. We ALL need help coping with life and it is not being weak…it’s loving yourself like God loves you. He gave you that wonderful little four legged companion to remind you of HIS unconditional love for you. He wants you to have joy on this earth. Please be good to yourself and seek help. Our world needs you. You are loved and your are precious. Lifting you up in prayer right now. This is nothing you have done….life is so very hard sometimes, but with help we can find joy again.
      Love and prayers,
      Bev xo

      I agree with Bev please seek professional help or counseling. Praying that you will feel God always at your side. He will never leave nor forsake you! God has you here for a reason. I find meaning in life by attending church & helping others in my community. You can sit with them & talk or simply pray for them.

      Father,

  74. So many needs and blessings – so many caring & prayerful responses. Thank you (in) courage!

    Please hold my mother close. After a 2+ year battle with cancer, we lost my stepfather in February and she struggling with depression and making a new way after 38 years.

    And I ask for me. With so many others in need, it’s hard to ask or expect anything for myself. I’ve lost my way and just need to feel Jesus in my spirit.

    • Father God, I pray in Jesus Name, that Kathy’s daughter is completely healed from this skin cancer!
      Thank you that you are a miracle working God, You are the same yesterday & today & tomorrow & I thank you Jesus, that you paid the price for every sickness, disease & infirmity in Your Own Body, on the cross of Calvary, where you defeated death itself.

  75. Please pray for our family. We are downsizing to an RV, by choice, to full time live for 3-4 years before my husband retires from the Military. We have been slow with finding the right RV and I know it will come but I feel like we’re running out of time and getting frustrated. We have time so my feelings don’t make sense. We just desire to move on with the next stage of life and need strength in making the right decisions for our family. Secondly, we have a situational problem with the pageant director that oversees our daughters. We’re praying for quick resolution as the stress is horrendous on them and my PTSD. Blessings!

    • Father God, I lift Amy Sue & her family before you & ask that you would grant them Your perfect peace in the waiting, in this situation, which WILL be resolved, in Your perfect timing. I also lift the situation regarding her daughters to You, for Your resolution, in the power of Your Holy Spirit, in Jesus Name. Thank You God, that You alone are the Healer of every stress & anxiety that afflicts us. Let Your peace reign over this family. Amen

  76. Lord I thank you that before a word is on our lips you know it completely. You created all of us and you saw our unformed bodies whilst we were still in out mothers’ wombs. Thank you that you hear us when we call on you. Thank you that you make all things beautiful in your time. Lord I lift up every request that has been written down today by your daughters, even the ones in our hearts that we have not been able to write down or put into words. Hear our cry oh Lord and show yourself mighty on our behalf. Be a healer to the afflicted. Mend the brokenhearted. Provide for the needy. Strengthen the weak. Reveal yourself to the lonely and help us all to trust that you can do much more than we can ever ask or imagine. Help us to be still and know that you are God. In Jesus’ mighty name.
    Amen.

  82. Dear Father, I lift up Mary Kay to you. Not only her dreams and passions, but her gifts and talents you have instilled in her. You have said you order our steps, Father we just need to ask. I pray Mary Kay would begin each day with a humble prayer of Lord show me your will for me today. Let not Mary Kay be hindered by past mistakes or circumstances, but giver her a heart full of utter dependance upon you to guide and comfort her through new seasons of life. Amen!

    Dear Sister’s, I ask for prayer as I wade through the waters of forgiveness of a family member who has dishonored and defamed my family in hurtful words and accusations. I know my Lord would ask me to extend a hand of forgiveness as He has done that for me on the cross. But I am struggling to extend that hand of forgiveness as I feel so wronged by this person. I need prayer to proceed in life as the wounds are raw and healing is far off in the distance. May He grant me the heart in which I am able to move forward in freedom, not in bondage to bitterness.

  83. Dear Father,

    I lift up to you each and every woman who has posted here before me and I pray that you hear each of their prayers.

    I ask for prayers for my dad who continues to battle pancreatic cancer. He had a successful Whipple procedure in May but a recent CT scan shows that the cancer has metastasized to his liver. He will begin chemo again soon and we are praying that God again melts away any and all cancer cells and tumors in his body and that we have many more happy and healthy years as a family.

    In Jesus ‘ name I pray.

    Amen and thank you!

    Kimberly

  84. Prayers for a dire situation, on the brink of losing everything. My husband and I are separated because I suffered a mental breakdown and he did not know how to respond. I cannot carry the load any more. But just filled with fear about the mess he is in and partially caused, and to which I must return to sort out my life.

    • Blessings. God’s sovereign presence in this situation in life. He will carry you through this. I pray for healing, love, hope and Peace.

  85. Please pray that God strength me to seek His will; I’m being manipulated emotional by my husband, he picks on my weaknesses liar about me isolate me and keep me in disadvantaged position.

  86. My heart is hurting and longing for a family of my own. I’ve been praying for 17 years for a family, kids and a place we call home that is open for others. I have days where my heart aches so much I don’t know what to do. I do want God’s will in my life. But I pray for his mercy and grace. Can you join me please?

  87. Hi having health issues that the doctors don’t know what it is just need prayer for healing. Also prayer for a book I’m getting ready to write the God will be glorified totally in this book. Thank you

  88. Hi having health issues that the doctors don’t know what it is just need prayer for healing. Also prayer for a book I’m getting ready to write that God will be glorified totally in this book. Thank you

  89. Uzoma, Katharina, and Debra – I see each of you as being on the outside, looking into your treasured “home”. It may be a home of peace and emotional security, or a home full of the love of children, or simply a place of health and healing…and of answers. I am praying that each of you find the “key” that will unlock the door to that home, and you will step into the warmth and love that is surely there for each of you. You may have to endure the cold, endure the pain and uncertainity for a time, but when you find that key and enter that home, you will find “peace beyond understanding”. I am thinking of 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, when Jabez “called upon the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.” To me, I am always struck by the plea, “that your hand might be with me”. It is so poignant and humble. This is my prayer for you, that God’s hand will be with you always and he guides you to the answers to your prayers.

    My prayers center around something more “worldly” right now: I have a very old car, but one that suits me and for which I am very grateful for. However, the clutch went out and I cannot afford the $800 to repair it. I need your prayers to help me find the money to do this. I have been without a car for close to 4 months. And to say it has impacted my life is putting it mildly! If I pray, and YOU pray….no matter how small the prayer is, I am sure God will hear and place a solution in front of me! Thank you!

    • I am praying! May God reveal his greatness and work in wonderful ways. Thanks for your words. They mean a lot! Let’s keep praying.

  90. I am sorry about your car, Mary Ann and I pray a solution will present itself soon. Perhaps a capable mechanic who will willingly do the work at cost or a minimal fee, or some “found” money that will provide you the wherewithal to have it repaired at a shop. Reliable transportation is so important. I pray God’s blessing and relief upon you.

    My request
    Please pray for my adult sons and his two “adult” children who are living at home but in disharmony and unhappiness. Let them find a loving and respectful way of living together and a way of moving toward self reliance and independence and real adulthood. Thank you

    • NEVER DOUBT THE POWER OF PRAYER! Yesterday I asked for prayers regarding my sad little car that needs a new clutch. I have exhausted all my resources trying to scrape together the money to fix it. Jan responded that she was praying for God’s blessing and relief.

      Well, Jan, you are a powerhouse of prayer! I just received an email from my daughter saying that she has paid off a credit card, and is able to pay for my car repairs! I have not asked her to help because she herself is struggling financially, trying to pay off her student loan and advance in her career. This is truly the blessing for which Jan was praying.

      Please everyone, join me in sending up a heartfelt prayer to God for Jan’s intentions regarding her son and his two boys who are struggling with “self-reliance and independence and real adulthood.”

      God bless Jan and God bless everyone of you in this prayer community.

  91. Jan, I lift you & your family to the Lord in prayer. May your son love his Children the way Our Father loves us. I pray for healthy boundaries to be established between them and love to grow the way Our Father has designed. Prayers for strength, wisdom & courage for each of them to do as God has asked them to, and that they are open to receiveing His blessings. In His Sons name I pray! Amen

    My prayer request is for our marriage. We are between the D word & intensive therapy. I prefer option 2. Please pray for us both to have open hearts to getting to the matter of this mess through the help of others. And for our 3 children. Thank you.

    • Crystal-I’m sending prayers for God’s divine intervention & blessings in your marriage. May you & your children feel the Lord’s strength & grace in the days & weeks ahead. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

      My prayer request is for my upcoming surgery at Mayo Clinic this Wed. Prayers for His guidance for my doctors & ultimately to have healing & wholeness in Him. Thank you.

  92. In Courage,

    Praying for all here. There are many needs in this world. God calls us to a spirit of continual prayer. I would ask for prayers for people of Houston area. They have lost everything. They are weary, & worn. The recovery will take a long time.

    Our country needs healing. We need to show more of Christ’s love to each other & less hate. I dislike that it took a huge disaster in Houston to see some of Christ’s love being displayed. Our country needs a revival now! We all need to start praying more!

    Blessings 🙂

  93. My husband and I need work as our finances are now at zero status. Cared for his mother for her final five years of life at our expense (he was swindled out of his inheritance by addict siblings) Have had serious business losses. Have lost our 25 year old son in fatal auto accident a week after his birthday (November 2015) Difficult to progress with motivation of any sort. Husband 62, myself 60 and he is discouraged trying to find any clients or work in our field (hospitality consultants) at our age. Looking to God for all that we need

    • Good and Gracious God, provide Joan and her husband what they need. Comfort them in their grief as they continue to grieve the loss of their son. Grant motivation to them both as they seek to be your hands and feet in the world. Set their eyes on you especially when they are feeling discouraged. In your name, we pray! Amen!

  94. Giving thanks as I celebrated my 39th birthday yesterday (Sept 3). For the awful wildfires in Montana. For those still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. For God to guide me in what my 2017 Write 31 Days topic should be.

    Thank You!

  95. I have been without a job since end of May. I was in a school system that laid off 3 of the last hired in due to budget cuts. I’m desperately looking for a job and seem to be getting nowhere. I need ft with benefits like I had. It seems God has turned his back on me but I know that’s not possible. I’m really down and depressed and it’s getting worse. I just need something good to happen something to make me feel not such a loser. This wasn’t even my fault. I need serious prayer and encouragement. Thank you so much for the prayers.

    • Lord, I lift up Kristy and that you will comfort her heart at this time let her know your peace. Give her favour and provide a new job for her. You know her desires and you are a good father, so I ask that you will comfort her and uplift her from this place of depression. Fill her with your joy and peace, in Jesus name. Amen

  96. I am feeling anxious as the new school year is about to start. I am already thinking about the stress of each day and what the mornings are like. I’m worried about my finances and how my money will stretch to meet all of my obligations

    • Jesus, I ask that you be near to Sophia during this time. That as she draws near to you….that You will draw near to her. That you will sustain her and strengthen her during this time. You are our Provider. You are faithful. We pray against any anxiety…as we know that this is not from You. We pray for a peace that surpasses understanding and that You will direct her path. Let her look for little ways that You are loving on her throughout each day. You have a purpose for her. Open doors quickly for her & close the wrong ones. We trust in You alone, God! In Jesus’s name we ask these things! Amen!

  97. Pray for purpose for my husband and I. We hit a bad season of ministry a few years ago and have just felt displaced ever since. We just want to be where the Lord wants us & find our purpose again for His kingdom.

    • Michelle, I am so sorry to hear this. Dear Lord, I pray healing for Michelle and her husband! I pray you will take what the enemy desires to destroy and turn that around for Your glory! Thank you for their service and hearts desire to be where you want them to be and to find their purpose. Reveal you are right there and you love them deeply. “..make known to them the way in which they are to walk and the work they are to do.” Holy Spirit “speak for your servants are listening”. Fill this deep personal loss and place a hedge of protection around them and protect them from the attacks the enemy is sending their way. Thank you Father that you have gone before them and will prepare the way. Thank you that your timing is perfect! Bless you Michelle!

  98. Dear Lord, even Word that comes from you is the World we and stand in assurance in. Lord, I pray You speak a Word if peace, the peace that only Suzann can have in You. Speak a Word of hope, that blessed promise that she is with you and they will see her again. Speak a Worf of strenght knowing that in you she lives, move and have her being. And Lord as your Word says, You will give her beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness,
    The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
    .

  99. Please pray for my husband and I. We both got laid off and we are two months behind on our mortgage.

    • Father, I lift up Meditte M and her husband to you and ask that you supply their every need. I ask also, Father, that you give them both a job that will last and enable them to be able to not only pay their mortgage, but have a surplus to give back to you in some way. Thank you, Father, for answering this prayer.

  100. Please pray for my daughter. She is in need of a bone marrow transplant but can’t receive it until she has a liver transplant. She suffers from an autoimmune disorder that attacked her liver a few years back, leaving it cirrhotic. The medicine she was taking to keep her immune system from attacking her liver again, not only suppressed her liver, but it also suppressed her bone marrow to the point that it no longer produces the blood cells normally. She has what they call myelodysplastic syndrome, which requires a bone marrow transplant. Without the transplant, she more than likely will develop Acute myeloid leukemia. The doctors won’t perform a bone marrow transplant on her or even consider it until she has had a liver transplant, but to get a liver transplant, she needs a live donor due to that fact that her liver isn’t considered “diseased” enough to qualify for a liver donor from someone that passes away. She’s 35 and has 2 teenage boys.

    • Dear Kim,
      I am so sorry to hear about this, and I honestly cannot even begin to imagine this journey. Oh my.. What I can do is get before the Father, the King most high, the great physician and ask for His healing, His mercy, His grace and strength, and His peace in this raging storm! “Help them look up and show them you are there with arms stretched out wide. “Come to me all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest..” They need You! I pray they can see you in this storm, and that you will allow many walking on water moments, moments they had no clue were possible. Thank you that you will reveal yourself. Thank you that You are faithful and You are there! Kim, I don’t say that lightly, I can’t even imagine that is easy to receive or grasp but I am praying He reveals this to you, your daughter, and your family in a mighty way.

      • Thank you, Janie. We found out today that she’s suffering from acute renal failure on top of everything else. This apparently was caused also from the medicine she was taking. She may need a kidney transplant too.

  101. I would appreciate prayer for my son, Joshua. We are estranged at present,his choice, not mine. But most importantly, he is not walking with the Lord. Thank you very much to any who pray for us.♥

  102. Feeling a loss of a community that I was once apart of. The loss of friends that were for a season I suppose. Heartache and hurt from the guy I trusted.

  103. I am struggling with a decision that I have made. How do I find peace? Do I need to change my mind? When all sorts of obstacles and doubts keep presenting themselves – what direction do I take.
    I feel immobilized.

  104. Please pray for the islands of The Bahamas as we wait to face Hurricane Irma. We dealt with Joaquin in 2015 and Matthew in 2016 and it seems very tiring already to think about post-hurricane. We are a praying nation but would be comforted by more. Thanks.

  105. Please pray for me and my family. Exactly a year ago our 14 year old grandson was hit by a utility truck and died of his injuries. My husband and I also pastor a large church in the Bay Area of SF. This year has a been a great challenge for us, if it had not been for our faith and hope in the Lord we would not have made it through. But the enemy has thrown every dart he can at us and our family, so please pray for continued strength and healing.

    • In Jesus name I pray for the comfort of the Lord to cover you and your family. I pray that He strengthens you and guides you each step of the way to overcome any plans the enemy has set in motion. I declare his supernatural power to turn whatever the situation may be now around in your favor.
      Amen <3

  106. Please pray for my faith. I am unsure of my purpose in life and I know God has a plan for me but I am clueless as to which way to go. I have prayed for a years for something and it seems as though the more I pray, the enemy comes by and makes the opposite happen. Im praying for the strength to not faint. I am praying for the Lord to show up and put all my worse nightmares to come to an end. I am asking that you all join me in prayer to keep my confidence in knowing that what God has promised will be and that I will be ok.
    Thank you

  107. Recovering cancer & chemo patient, hair loss, diabetes & hypothyroidism. In my 60s and feeling lonely, isolation and ugliness. I know the Lord is with. But cannot shake these feelings. Please pray for me.

  108. Really struggling with my self image and my body image. I really lack confidence in myself and have for a long time now. I also lack good girlfriends who are uplifting and positive. There’s so much negativity in my life already and I need positive friends!
