I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
Psalm 40:1-2 (NIV)
Friends, all around us, our world is hurting. We are grieving and fighting and struggling. We are lonely, and it all just hurts.
We know, however, that even in our darkest days, the Lord is close to the brokenhearted. We believe that when we cry out, He hears us. We trust that when we fall down, He will lift us up. And we know that when two or more gather in His name, He is there.
So, let’s gather today and lift up one another, taking all the pain weighing us down straight to the throne. Let’s join hands through our screens, weeping with those who weep and waiting on the Lord who hears our cries.
One of the greatest privileges we have here at (in)courage is turning to God together, lifting up the spoken and unspoken needs of our sisters. Leave a prayer request in the comments and then pray for the person who commented before you. Let us turn to the God who sees and knows everything, who turns to us and hears our cry, and who loves us through it all.

Beth Williams says
My requests are for my in-laws. They have multiple health issues including stage III bladder cancer, diabetes for FIL; hurt shoulder, vertigo & others for MIL. Asking that they can get relief & I can help them as much as possible.
My elderly neighbor Jean (86). She is bad diabetic & had stents in leg last year. Now the leg is hurting. She has lost most of her family including hubby & children. A good friend stays with her at night to make sure she doesn’t fall & help with shopping & cooking. Her only living sister is in nursing home with alzheimer’s & doesn’t know anyone.
Praying for everyone here. God knows your needs even before I ask it. Father help all the women here with their situations. Send healing to those hurting or ailing, Bring peace & calm to weary souls. Those having tough seasons guide their steps & bring rest to them. Many are needing jobs so guide their actions & show them where you want them. Help us all to trust that you to direct our paths. Make us be still & rest today.
Barbara Millerman says
Lord, I pray for the needs that Beth posted: all very serious ones but nothing is too difficult for YOU! Minister YOUR healing strength to those suffering from illnesses and medical issues. May YOUR name be glorified through it all. Help Beth to be of encouragement and help to those YOU have put in her life.
My prayer request is for a man named Arvid who has been in Rochester Hospital for 3 weeks. He is in a comma and has very serious heart issues. Prayers for YOUR will for him and that you will be close to his wife, daughters, and all his loved ones during this trying time.
Beth Williams says
Praying for Arvid & the family. May God send His healing touch to Him to wake him up & heal his heart. May the family feel God’s presence around them. May they have a peace & comfort knowing God is in control.

My younger sister is in a coma and my family has some very hard decisions to make this week. I have been shaken to my core by this experience and feel like I’m lost and broken, I didn’t know it was possible to hurt this much. I need prayers of strength and wisdom for me, and peace for my sister.
Lifting you up, close to the throne of our Father. He wraps his loving arms around you. He cries with you and at the same time fills you with peace and wisdom. His love is all around you, now and it the hard days to come! He is still the same God he was before, he is the same God for you as he is for your sister! His loving hands carry her!

Come fill her heart with deep love and understanding for her husband and come heal their hearts. I pray for protection over them in this time and for much wisdom. Amen.
I’m praying for Sharon and all other ladies in this prayer chain. I’m praying for my family members who have anger issues, temper, approaching me with sarcasm so that God can heal their heart. I’m also praying for myself for the healing of past wounds and mistakes to be erased from my memory.
Lord, you know us better than we will ever know ourselves. I ask that you meet Sharon’s unspoken request in Jesus name. Cover her with peace that surpasses all understanding and allow her to fill your abundant grace and mercy as she casts her cares upon you. Allow her cares to be few and her blessings to me many. In the mighty and matchless name of Jesus, Amen.

For help with my disorder and chronic pain
Leanne Porterfield says
Father, Be close to Sharon in this time of need… help her to feel Your presence, Your strength, and Your peace… thank You Father, in Jesus’ name…
Pray for all of my sons to love the Lord and want to serve and follow Him.
Kathleen Burkinshaw says
Hello wonderful prayer warriors, I’m dealing with a lot of physical,emotionally pain since my Dad passed away a month ago. I’m requesting if you would please say a prayer for the anxiety attacks, the pain and for strength. Thank you so much!
Please pray for restoration of a broken relationship.
Praying for you Sharon. The Christian parents of my very young grandchildren, (including a baby) have chosen to go against Biblical principles for child rearing to follow after the wolves in sheeps clothing and heresies of these last days. And one of these they drastically ignore is what is taught in these verses right here and many others. It is hard to believe, but they never attend to their children’s crying, including that of a baby. It is not just a period of time to let the baby/child cry, but it is indefinitely until the poor little child falls exhausted into sleep, no matter the problem of hunger, dirty diapers or need of love, or someone who could be hurting them. They are always punished for crying and/or then just left alone. And there are many other unbiblical things they do and do not do for their children. I pray the Lord would turn their hearts to their children as Malachi and Luke speak of and forsake these destructive philosophies and actions against their children and turn to His truth. Thank you for praying.
HC- that sounds like a potential DFCS issue.
Hc – I have seen your posts before in the past for prayer on this. Please, please call to have the children removed from their home. This is against the law. It is child neglect.
I know it is family. But, not calling is enabling the behavior, and continuing to put the children in a dangerous situation.
Prayers for wisdom and clarity for my doctor’s to diagnose and treat me for a mysterious illness. Prayers for healing from above.
William Henry GohnIII says
I’ve struggled (with belief) with those reconciling truths: I John 1;1-10.
Praying for clarity and direction for the rest of the year regarding work, leadership, and finances.
Kirsty Visser says
Good evening, I am struggling with loneliness as a single woman . My prayer is that God would take that feeling away.
Thank you for your prayers and amazing and encouraging posts .
Praying for you tonight. I have had lots of periods of loneliness in my life and it is never enjoyable. I pray that God will be close to you and give you all you need to make it through this time in your journey. Praying He feels you so full that you don’t feel anything but His love for you. You are wise to remain single instead of chasing the wrong kind of people/persons just to fill that ache in your heart. God will honor your choices that honor Him.
Kirsty Visser says
Thank you so much for your prayers xxx
I feel you Kirsty. Praying.
Please be with Sharon. You know her and you know all about her unspoken request. Give Sharon strength, wisdom, and your peace. Help her feel your love as it surrounds and supports her.
In Jesus name, amen.
Please pray for God’s guidance as my daughter looks for a new church home. Thank you!
Please for my young adult kids (Allie, Daniel, Emily and Sarah) to love Jesus with all their hearts. They are so very caught up in this world and the enemy has confused and deceived them. Please pray God’s Spirit opens their eyes and hearts to His truth. As a mother, my heart grieves so much. Thank you!
I am asking prayers for God to put in my path a lawyer to help me end a 7 year persecution of my ex husband trying to steal my inheritance through the Court System. I believe that God will restore the years the locust has eaten. I am asking for God’s Justice & Favor through the Court System.
In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen.
This month marks the one year “anniversary” of my decision to leave an abusive relationship with my daughter’s father. He continues to try and control me through the court process by refusing to negotiate at all so we are heading for trial. Please pray for God’s hand of protection over my daughter and myself and for wisdom for the judge. I am scared and nervous.
Stacy Craig says
Sharon, I pray your request is granted and that it beings you peace.
Father in the name of Jesus I present Sharon’s unspoken request to you. You are the great I Am, present with us here in our moments of need. I pray you will be to her all that she needs st this time. Illuminate the dark places and bring healing hope and deliverance.
Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Amen.
I have been battling thyroid nodules for the past 9 years now. Please pray that God will bring healing whether divine or holistic. Traditional medicine’s solution is surgery to remove it and then take a pill for life. I have not received that report. I believe healing is available.
Margaret Michael says
Please pray for my downstairs neighbor, Jordan, who is mentally unstable.
Gracious Lord, you know the cry of Sharon’s heart and I ask that you meet her right now in that need and grant her hope and peace as she trusts in You (Romans 15:13).
Please pray for God’s mercy and healing of body, mind and spirit for me. Thank you!
My health is worsening even at my attempts to take better care of myself and praying for healing. More tests are being done over the next few week. Please pray for direction and wisdom, discernment, peace and healing. I’m very scared.
From your heart to God’s ears! Claiming victory for your answered prayers. Romans 8:28
Asking for my son to feel God’s presence and guide his decisions.
My prayer request is to see the manifestations of God’s guidance & love. Thank you.
Dear Anonymous, Praying Godly wisdom for you and your family through this difficult time.
I have a slipped disc in my back and was given a tapering steroid for pain. I have had a bad reaction to the medication. Please pray that my system will get back to normal and a new solution for the slipped disc.
Please pray for my mom, as she seems to be battling mental illness. This is a hard road we’re walking with her. Thank you so much.
Sandy Kent Mackie says
I feel the whole world around me is doing well but I’m the one who is struggling:(
But you encourage me to not think outside myself….to live outside of my broken little self…. to live for others!!!!
Praying for my Father’s healing and restoration of spirit. Also that the Lord would help us through the many struggles we are facing.
Praying for you and your family ❤️

Deborah Douglas says
Please pray that HE will continue to fill me with confidence and assurance as I apply for job openings.. HE continues to amaze me how HE has provided for my day to day needs… and I am ready to embark on a new chapter in my life with HIS approval… Thank you!!..

my prayer request : that my insurance company cover fixing my car. my family and I were hit by a semi yesterday. God was so in the details..no one was hurt! We all praised him right away and are aware just how blessed we were. now heading to insurance to try to get car fixed. Lord be with us !!
Please pray for my husband and I as we embark in unknown territory. Due to a changing administration, he will lose his job on Tuesday.
Jessie, I understand. Our family has gone through similar. Father God, please grant Jessie and her husband your peace. A stillness. And, also new opportunities for their family. We know you can turn any situation. We know that all things work together for our good. Not every single thing, but that you can take everything and work it together for our good, and for your glory.
Jessie, I am reminded of Joseph this morning. His own brothers sold him into slavery. A terrible situation. He had lots of ups, and also some downs (Mrs. Potiphar). But God took everything, and make things good for not only Joseph, but his family and Israel. Be encouraged this morning. God is still bigger and mightier than anything or anyplace or anyone!
Jessie, I pray that our sovereign God will help you to see that He is with you and that He is in control. I trust that as this door closes, He will graciously provide another open door for the two of you. Praying His peace will cover you and your husband and that the two of you will be filled with His Presence.
Praying for my daughter. She has completely walked away from The Lord, is on drugs, and living with dangerous people. She has also cut off her family, and only communicates with her twin brother, but limited. She needs healing, physically, mentally, and spiritually. She needs to return to her family.
Praying for your daughter, Linda, to come back home to you and to the Lord. Praying also for your family as you deal with the effects of her decisions as well.
I’m praying for your daughter that the Lord helps guide her to the right path, and that she knows she is still loved and welcomed by her family to come back.
My daughter (16) has been a victim of severe bullying at a private high school this past year. She tried to endure, but the school did nothing and we ended up leaving with 6 weeks left in the school year to keep her safe. She had to move to a new school, delete and block most of her old classmates and who she considered friends, and start over. People spread so many lies even those who called themselves her friends turned on her. She did nothing but try to be nice to people in a school where parties and popularity were all that most people cared about, and people became jealous because she was able to stay nice without caving to the pressure, and they wanted to destroy her. They succeeded, and continue to succeed. Meanwhile my daughter has to start over (which is hard for anyone, let alone a teen in her sophomore year), and now my son has to go to a completely new school as well this fall, and he is struggling with that as well. The bullies did a number on my family and yet we continue to see them doing well, while our whole world is rocked. Please pray for strength for my kids, restoration of my daughter’s name and friendships, and ultimately for the people bullying her to stop and reap what they have sown, as my daughter was only one in a long line of people they’ve destroyed. Watching your nice kid have to go through this and not being able to stop it has been heart-wrenching for me as well, as a single parent trying to do it all. Thank you for your prayers.
The church where I serve on the worship team is searching for a pastor. Pray for us to seek the Father’s will in choosing someone to shepherd and guide our congregation to better health and more impact on our community.
Prayer for a young woman whose going to court tomorrow for mediation with her child’s father. He’s turned away from Christ and is now dating a lady who believes in witch craft and the universe. The battle is raging against her please pray for the Lord to intervene and the covering and protection of her son when he goes with them. Thank you!!
Struggling with family members who have openly walked away from the family and from God. I’m praying each day for them, but it’s hard to watch these things happen and know I can’t do anything to stop it.
I would like prayer for healing in my legs and feet . Also for some sort of job I can to have an income . I’ve been a nurse for many years but am now experiencing arthritis and tears flow as I loved being a nurse .
I would like to request prayers for my infant son. He has had such a rough start at life with multiple operations to save his life. He has overcome so many odds and has made many strides in the right direction. God has performed miracle after miracle. Now he is need of healing for a terrible stomach virus that he has been suffering from for 10 days. Please, God, continue to heal my precious baby. Help me not to be so anxious and worried everyday.
Dawn Ferguson-Little says
Burden are lifted at Cavalry Jesus is very Near. What a true song. You get it on youtube. Jesus is very near he hears all our problems and knows them even before we speak or pray them. But he still likes us to pray them to him. So as he know we are putting our trust and faith in him and his word the Bible and the promises in it. Because that is all we need along with a good friend to listen to us and pray along side us and for us. Trust God that in his perfect timing our prayer will be answered. We might not get the answers this side of earth if it to with health problems. But ours is not to ask why? But keep trusting God keep looking up no matter what. If not healed this side of earth we will be healed in Glory. But remember Burden are lifted at cavalry Jesus is very near. So true a song. Jesus is very near no matter what we go through.
Another excellent reading. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little

Hi Jessie! Praying for you and your Husband. Be encouraged the Lord will be with you both in the unknown.
Please pray for my husband and I. Today we will start marriage counseling.
Very much in a wilderness/limbo place right now; applying for an interviewing for jobs and waiting to be hired. I’m praying for God’s will for the right job that He wants me to have. Many things in my life right now are tied to this job offer and unfortunately the timing (quick timing) is very important. Please pray for me that an offer is made on the right job quickly. Thank you!
Sabrina, I think you are doing the best possible thing you can do for your family by praying and by asking God to take care of it! Lean into God and let His comfort embrace you!
Dear Heavenly Father I pray for Jessie and her husband. You know what their future holds and only You can bring them the peace that You offer. I pray that Phil. 4: 6,7 will permeate there hearts and minds. Let Your will be done. In Christ name I pray. Amen.
Healing from depression and anxiety and hope in the waiting.

Praying for you Barbara. God loves you deeply.
My son was in a car accident on Thursday and broke his neck. He will heal, God is good. I would like prayer as He does not believe and has addiction issues. At the same time, his father and I are going through a very ugly divorce and there is restraining order involved. It is messy and I just want to be there for my son. Please pray for healing and for me to be his calm and peace and to allow Jesus to move through me. I am very blessed to have him alive and walking today.
Praying for your son and your situation. Nothing is impossible for God!

I hear you Simona. Praying.
I’m praying for you Simona.
I take over my boss’s position next week and I keep cycling through elation and terror. I have always been the assistant, never the executive. The feeling that I’m kidding myself and I’m not actually qualified for this keeps coming back. I know fear comes from the enemy, but as the day approaches it gets stronger.
Go Jess!!!!!! Heavenly father, please help Jess to do this job in the way you want her to do it; for her to realise she is not her boss but set apart by you for such a time as this; to shine as beacon of light in her workplace; to get all the tasks done and people to ask where does her hope come from. In Jesus name, Amen.
Anita Crumby says
Jess, praying for God’s peace as you step into this new role. I too have battled fear most of my life. Sounds like God has brought this opportunity into your life. You are bravely stepping out trusting Him to work through you. Remember He just asks us to step out in faith, He will supply the power and wisdom. He doesn’t mean for you to carry it. Praying you can rest in Him, knowing He’s got this!
I’d appreciate if someone could lift me up to the Lord in prayer. I have prayed for many years for a Christian husband. I don’t want to think this door is closed yet it is looking impossible. I desire to be a Christian wife; to admonish each other daily; to do life together in Christ. It seems a godly desire yet never an answered prayer. Thank you.
Father God , you set dreams in the hearts of men and only you can fulfill them. Please cover Lou in your overwhelming love , set her on the path of walking in love . Lead her path and if Marriage is thy Will you join hearts in Holy Matrimony to serve Your purpose on earth . Amen
Prayer Request :
2 years ago I lost my job in Bahrain. Struggling to find a job in Reinsurance… and finances have become scarce due to family health problems. Need proper healing for my MIL suffering from cancer and for providence of home care for my sick MIL . In desperate need for Heaven’s grace .
Father God in the name of Jesus, I just pray right now and ask You, Holy Spirit, to take control of this prayer request, this cry for a covering of Grace. Father, Lisa nor myself know the timing or way that you will deliver financial & physical healing in this situation but, by faith we are declaring & believing without doubt that You WILL the I Am that You Are and bring forth renewal and strength in her and her family’s lives. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Anita Crumby says
Please pray for me. My sister has become disabled due to dementia from alcoholism I have just been made her power of attorney. Please pray I get the financial information I need to help her get the care she needs. I have almost no records and she does not remember. We have used up almost all her finances and need to get her on SSDI to qualify for Medicaid to stay in the facility she is in. I meet with a lawyer on Friday for help but finances to cover this is almost gone. Please pray the Lord will grant me favor and wisdom to strength to see this through and His peace! I’m coming off a very difficult year. My mom passed away a little over a year ago and I was her primary care giver. I went into deep depression and anxiety last summer. I’m recovering and don’t want this to pull me back down but I want to make sure my sister is cared for. Thank you for praying!
Anita, this hit me on another level. All these prayer requests are important, but this one I can relate to because I, too, have lost my mother (when I was 13) who I helped take care of, and know all-too-well about feelings of deep depression and anxiety, anger too. So right now, I pray in conjunction with your prayer request, that God, Our Father in Heaven, will hear our desperate cries and help turn this situation around for the better. (Romans 8:28) I pray that He not only provides you the financial support and physical & mental strength that you need to continue through this tough time, but that He also gives you emotional & spiritual healing like never before! God knows what we need, when we need it, and how we need it. It is my prayer, in conjunction with the guidance of Holy Spirit, that from this point forward, you will hear God’s reminder that “The earth is the LORD’S and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” (Psalm 24:1) God hears you & He has you in His hands! God Bless you.
Hello Everyone! My prayer is that God answers ALL our prayers. Prayer is powerful and is needed for us all. I was involved in a situation today at work in which I had to go to HR for discrimination and supervisors abusing their authority. That was to be the focal point of my prayer; however, after stumbling across this website and seeing the point behing this post, my greatest prayer today is that websites like this continue to be shared and created for the edification of God’s name, prayer for all God’s people, and unification for the building of God’s Kingdom. This is beautiful!! And I’m thankful that Jennifer Dukes Lee’s “Love Idol” book brought me here… I’m a believer that the HR situation is already handled by God and that He has declared the victory over the enemy for my sake! God bless you, All!

LORD God, I ask that you make manifest a sense of peace and strength for Joanna L. Kearns. Not just tonight, but always. Lord, You know how angry I have been at Your timing, not being willing to see your guiding hand in my life and unable to reach through my angst and angry emotions to find Your love and light when I have been so ill in and in so much physical and emotional pain. I ask you, to please help Joanna see that You ARE there, only a hand-hold away, aching to let her feel Your love. I ask you to soften Joanna’s heart toward You, like You did for me, and to allow her to see, in hind-sight, that ou’ve been with her every step of the way. In Jesus, most Holy Name I pray. Amen.

I ask for prayers tonight, not for myself, but for the adult son of my best friend who passed in March and whose grandfather passed on July 4th. He has been untethered and searching since before his mom went to be with out Lord. I ask for prayers for him to find Christ and come to know him, I ask for stability for him, to know the peace of our Lord. And I ask for prayers for his mom’s entire family. His name is John Onyx. Thank you.

Lord, I lift up all of these requests–spoken and unspoken. You are the Great Physician, healer of body, mind and spirit. Please touch each and everyone of these precious daughters of yours. Give them the peace that surpasses all understanding, joy unspeakable and your home that is light. Shower then with your everlasting love. In Jesus name, Amen.

Prayers for this heart of mine to heal. I know I speak of this loss so often and I wished I could make the hurt and loneliness go away. This week has been quite hard and my tears are flowing. 17 months Zer Cha since you got your wings and I missed you. I long to hear your voice, to see your text come across my phone but all I have are emptiness inside that it seems to grow. Lord, I know one day I will see her again, it is in the waiting until then that will be the most hardest. 40 years of friendship and another 40 years to go without you my friend is what I am afraid of. Save me a seat Zer Cha…
Father God, I pray peace for my sister Maylee. Give her your strength to walk through this sad time of grief. Minister to her every need. Help her to remember your word in I John 4:18 that tells us your perfect love casts out all fear.
