Our Father …

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.

Paula starts us off with this message. Overwhelmed? Pray… Stressed? Pray … Afraid? Pray… Lonely? Pray… Worried? Pray … God has your answers! Can I get an Amen!

The surgeon has decided Emily’s A1C is low enough to do surgery Wednesday (April 10).  There are more risks with this surgery so prayers are coveted.

Joseph has been battling pancreatic cancer for almost four years. He was diagnosed with AML-Leukemia last week. Prayers requested.

Joann and Becky are fighting cancer. Becky’s is aggressive and she is having an adverse reaction (encephalitis) to treatment. She’s in an induced coma and prognosis isn’t good. She is an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion and needs a miracle.

Fanta asks for prayer. She is in the hospital.

Norman needs prayer. He passed out and fell injuring himself badly Monday. He has gotten worse. Pray for the doctors to find the source of bleeding and stop it, and for his mental confusion to be cleared.

Tiffany had a long conversation with her dad, who is an unbeliever. He was more open to discussing things of scripture and even wrote down things to look up later. Please, please pray for him. She longs for him to know Christ!

We’ve heard of a number deaths this week, including Michael and Annette.

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 Emily, Joseph, Joann, Becky, Fanta, Norman, Jim, Joe and Andrew. We ask you to soften Tiffany’s dad’s heart so we all can rejoice in the salvation of another soul. We remember Michel and Annette and their families as well as 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 wisdomfromafather@gmail.com.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Decisions are too important to leave to chance.
