Prayer Time

As we build this community prayer platform, we ask the Lord to listen to our petitions with full confidence they not only are heard but acted upon by God according to His holy will.  I know the requests are on my prayer list and I hope you consider putting them on yours as you place your petitions before the Lord Sunday.

Specifically, Kirah offered thanks for this forum. I am a breast cancer survivor, she said. This week I have had some symptoms in the breast that had cancer, which would indicate either post radiation mastitis or inflammatory breast cancer. The specialist has put me on a course of septra antibiotics which would clear the mastitis, and if it doesn’t, then they will be looking at the other alternative. A side effect of septra is a bowel infection, which I had two years ago and just was cleared this past month. So, prayer please that it is only mastitis, and the antibiotic will do just what it has to do without triggering any side effects. In Jesus’ name.

Barbara shared Andrew’s effort this week, “It’s not what you do or don’t do that you regret; it’s what you promised and let die.” You could almost hear the tears in the share, “Prayers requested, it is bad.” In a different communication with me, Andrew quipped, “I’m in God’s arms. No matter the pain, I’m good to go.” Andrew is battling pancreatic cancer that has metastasized throughout his body.

Lavon shared she has been diagnosed with lung cancer, which was confirmed with other tests. She is being treated at Cancer Treatment Center of America, Tulsa. Monday she starts chemo, only three weeks since the cancer was found at the ER. Things are moving fast.

Spencer asked for prayer. His left foot is in pain once again.

Lacey is asking prayers for a special intention.

S asks for prayers for her seven week old baby/embryo/fetus since she is spotting again with slight cramps.

Lorena thanked all for your precious prayers. Her Dad went to be with Jesus. “We miss him so but are thankful that he’s no longer suffering. We will see him again One Glorious Day!” She asked if we can please keep Kevin in prayer as well.

J asks for prayers for a financial mountain with the faith Jesus has already found a way through or around it.

Ed summed it best, “I believe prayer is one of the least and greatest things we can do for and with each other.” He also asked he community to please pray for his digital ministry.

We come to You, Lord, because, as Ed stated, prayer is the least yet the greatest thing we can do for each other. When two or more are gathered in Your name, we confidently know You are with us. What better company can we have? You reign and we trust You! We may be broken and battered but know You heal and quiet the soul. You are the source for all that happens in our lives. We thank You for the many blessings we have received this week — some we unfortunately didn’t notice. Nonetheless, those blessings are ever-present in our lives. We thank You for healing. We thank You for slowing us down. We thank You for providing us our daily needs — no more and no less. We thank You for being with us, listening to us, walking with us on this journey. We thank You for the support of our family and friends … for seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary — sunrises, sunsets, flowers, kids laughing, adventures, good news amid the bad news. We also know we can come to You with our concerns and they will be heard. We lift up those family members and friends who are battling various physical, emotional, financial, career or spiritual issues and ask not for Your guidance and healing (although that would be welcomed) but to keep reminding us we are not alone in our battles. Specifically we lift up Kirah, Barbara, Andrew, Lavon, Spencer, Lacey, S, Kevin, J and Ed and the family and friends of Lorena’s dad and all those You have called home. We grieve … You celebrate. We pray for obedience to Your Will so Your “Son” Light shines through us through the power of the Spirit. And we come to You through the confidence of the words taught by Your Son Jesus. Amen.

Keep your joys and concerns coming. They have been and will be included during my prayer time and I trust they will be on the lips of my followers as well as they approach the altar. All it takes is a couple of keystrokes under the “Contact Me” button on the top bar {or to the right if you’re not a follower yet}. I hope it becomes your best friend as you navigate around the site so we can all be viable prayer warriors. You can also comment or reach me at wisdomfromafather@gmail.com.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but only one view.
