On Bended Knee

As we build this community prayer platform, with help from the #PrayerWarriors team, 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.

As we approach the throne room, let’s remember to respond with faith and not fear, knowing the promises of God and His mighty hand will hold us through any situation!

I ask you lift me up Sunday (May 5) as I stand behind the pulpit. May my words be pleasing to the Lord.

Frank, Jay and Ashley are battling respiratory issues.

Julius had surgery earlier this week and with a few health issues already, there are risks. He and Kim need prayers while they undergo this journey of therapy and healing.

Marsha seeks prayer. A few months back she lost the family house in a fire, which has created other problems worse than losing our home. She is begging God to please somehow make a way soon.

KC has been diagnosed with stage 2 liver fibrosis (scarring of the liver).

Baltimore County (MD) Police Officer First Class Tabitha Hays, a 13 ½ year veteran of the force, is in stable condition after suffering a gunshot wound to the upper body.

Gloria’s surgery  went well! She prays for patience to wait on end results to determine if she will regain her eyesight in her left eye!

Kenda is a five year old fighting leukemia.

Brian is facing surgery on both eyes.

Sarah reports life is hard right now, . She was officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

Jim of Big Jim’s Walk was diagnosed with an inflamed and agitated piriformus muscle as well as inflammation around his lower back/tail bone area. He’s on two week rest, which has interrupted his Ride Around America for Addiction Awareness. He does plan on attending an event May 11, 6 p.m., in the Blue Sky Conference Room at the Wind River Hotel & Casino in Cheyenne, WI. Dave Wheeler II and Marisol Lozano are expected to give testimonies on hope, recovery and salvation.

Andrew continues to battle pain and challenges in his struggle with cancer, while Palm, Stephen and Joe are battling financial battles. They ask for people to look up with them.

Rachel lost her battle to a sudden flu-like illness. The neurology team put her in a medically induced coma after treating the infection that resulted in constant seizures. As she was slowly weaned from the coma medication, her seizures returned at a reduced rate but she did not return to an alert state. The influential progressive Christian writer and speaker who cheerfully challenged American evangelical culture, died this morning (May 4) at the age of 37. Prayers for the family are welcomed.

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. Through Christ all things are possible. 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 Frank, Jay, Ashley, Julius, Kim, Marsha, KC, Tabitha, Gloria, Kenda, Brian, Sarah, Jim,  Andrew, Palm, Stephen, and Joe. We pray for the families of all those You have called home, especially Rachel’s family. 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: Faith summons us beyond the possible to what might be.
