Prayer Call

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! Sometimes, all it takes is just one prayer to change everything …

Lord, we come to you asking for Your will on Your people. DeBorah lost her wallet last week. Please pray it will be returned since she needs $250 for transportation, utilities and her cell phone bill. She needs her cellphone to stay in contact with her brother Stephen, who has autism and in a group home.

Dave’s brain cancer has returned. He was released to rehab, but 12 hours later was back in the hospital with more seizures.

Gaz is asking for prayers for his dad. He had a massive heart attack and in a serious but stable condition.

Kayla asks for prayers for her dad, who started vomiting while under anesthesia during a colonoscopy. His oxygen levels dropped super low and they have discovered he has pneumonia.

Dan’s heart surgery is going well. They did not have to stop his heart for this procedure, which included four grafts using a vein from his leg. He has started the recovery process.

Ernie requests prayers for a friend who has a rare gastro disease. She can’t keep anything down. She’s had multiple surgeries and devices installed, but it seems to be getting worse.

Pete remains in the hospital fighting cancer. He will be moved to cancer ward Tuesday so they can look after him properly. He said he is too weak to walk or stand on his own, and having lots of tests.

Michelle is asking for prayers. We have to be out of their apartment by next week. I’m trying so hard not to panic, she said. We still have packing and nowhere to live. But, she added, it’s in God’s hands and she trusts Him.

Leah would appreciate prayers. She said she made a very big mistake and it’s affecting more people than just her. It was an honest mistake but I feel terrible and really stupid and there isn’t anything I can do to amend the situation.

Kate said her throat doesn’t hurt but she is losing her voice. It’s been 10 days with a headache. She is on antibiotics and just praying for relief soon.

Kevin reported his dad is back in the hospital. They couldn’t wake him up the other night and had very low BP and tremors. He seems a little more stable today. Kevin received a nerve block that made things worse and is in terrible pain. His brother started treatment this week for cancer. Please keep us all in your prayers …

Joseph is starting a new treatment regimen for leukemia compounded by pancreatic  cancer.

Andrew continues to battle pancreatic cancer.

Jim is slowly recuperating and has had to turn over his active ride for addiction awareness to biker Darren Hawkins. Prayers requested for Jim and the ministry.

Jennifer is asking prayers for an unspoken miracle.

Kerry is beginning testing for end stage liver failure. An EGD is scheduled June 7.

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 DeBorah, Dave, Gaz’ and Kayla’s dads, Dan, Ernie’s friend, Pete, Michelle, Leah, Kate, Kevin, Kevin’s father and brother, Joseph, Andrew, Jim and Darren. We pray for 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: Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will.

  1. Mark 11:24-25

    Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
