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.

We actually have thank yous to kick off our prayer time.

Bonnie and Dave’s great-grandson has gained 3.5 ounces since coming home a week ago.  He has also been released from the dermatologist with a clean slate.  He still has a long ways to go, but this is such wonderful news. She adds, “Please keep up all your prayers, that is what pulled him through this time and that is what will continue to help him.”

Jay is making a slow recovery from double pneumonia … but making progress.

Gavin is doing better, although the last report was he was feeling a little under the weather and drained and his hemoglobin was low so he received a blood transfusion. He is continuing with OT and PT. “We still have some steps forward to take and hoping by the beginning of next week we can go home.” A transplant team is expected to evaluate him.

The nodules on Joe’s lungs appeared to be growing, so they again changed his chemotherapy regimen to gemcitabine and abraxane. He seems to be responding, is still fighting hard and staying positive for everyone, including himself.

Jerry and Cheryl need prayer. Jerry had surgery, but it did not go as planned.

Rosie is hospitalized and having problems with her heart.

Jim and Joe are battling financial demons and attacks.

Brooke  was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and underwent  a double mastectomy.

Nicolle is still battling the pain from tonsillitis and Andrew continues to have more pain and challenges.

We come to You, Lord, because 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 progress being made. 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 Gavin, Joe, Jerry, Rosie, Jim, Joe, Brooke, Nicolle and Andrew. 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 your lips as well as you 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: We may fail, but we are not failures.
