Prayer Warriors

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. These requests are on my prayer list and I hope you consider putting them on yours as you place your petitions before the Lord Sunday.

Walter was diagnose with Type A flu. He is on bed rest (yeah, right). A geriatric nurse has been a Godsend and his nephew was a great help moving him since he can’t walk. Prayers please.

David is in ICU with septic and in organ failure. Please pray.

Nola is calling on the Father to please touch our unsaved family members and friends. Speak to their hearts, draw them closer, and allow them to see a glimpse of You through us.

Jennifer asks for prayers for her housing needs. Her present situation is ending in a little under a month and a half. She need prayers God will move in a radical, overtly miraculous way … or He gives me ease of heart to endure the full non-protected version of homelessness again. I do.

KJ is asking for some prayers for his “works”. He is stigmatic and it has been a very long and confusing journey for him. He knows the words to write, but I think I need prayer to get them written out.

Kevin has cancer that has returned. Chemo/radiation is not working and the doctors have said there’s not much left they could do. No time frame. Thank you!

Ed  is asking for prayers for his digital ministry.

Mary Beth is at peace and out of pain.

Jim and Joe are battling financial demons and attacks 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 Walter, David, Nola, Jennifer, KJ, Kevin, Ed, Jim, Joe and Andrew. We remember Mary Beth and her family and the families of 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. In Jesus’ Name, 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

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Count your blessings, not your troubles.
