Heavenly Father

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. Something extraordinary happens when two or more agree together in prayer

We thank you for your blessings. Melissa is particularly thankful for receiving good news from her recent tests. No cancer or pre-cancer, just a benign cyst. The polyps were also benign.

Others seek Your guidance and peace as they face uncertainties and illness. Specifically we pray for those affected by the rash of storms in the Midwest as well as world-wide where calamities are causing stress.

We lift up Diane’s mom who suffered a mild heart attack.

Kerry has developed very serious signs of liver disease. Tests continue.

Anna’s daughter has Dejerine-Sottas disease, a neurological disorder. When she is anxious she repeats herself. She has been repeating herself constantly for hours.

In Dallas, a five year old child was burned on her face.

Rob’s mother-in-law just had surgery today, and his dad had a fall and sprained his arm. Both are in their upper 80s.

Aby needs prayers to get through terminal cancer.

Annie is asking for prayer. She feels she is stuck in sin again.

Brenda’s daughter’s best friend is in critical condition following a car accident. Prayers are asked  for her recovery and her children. She’s a single mother wit three kids.

Keith needs prayer help in his battle with leukemia.

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.

Pete has been moved to the cancer ward. He remains too weak to walk or stand on his own, and is having lots of tests.

Dave continues to battle brain cancer.

And there were a host of unspoken prayer requests.

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 thank you for the good news Melissa received — a weight removed from her life. 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 those in harm’s way following natural disasters, Diane’s mom, Kerry, Anna’s daughter, children suffering from abuse and accidents, Rob’s mother-in-law and father, Aby, Annie, Brenda’s daughter’s best friend, Keith, Andrew, Jim and Darren, Pete and Dave. We pray for the families of all those You have called home, especially Ellen’s mom. 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: Happiness isn’t a constant. When you have it, enjoy it. When you don’t have it, wait for it to return. — Mean Joe Greene

  1. Thank you for the callout, and prayer for all.

    God where are you, don’t you see me?
    Have I been abandoned to the dark?
    I trust in You, and sing Your glory,
    and on my forehead is Your mark.
    But where is solace, and whence relief
    from this all-consuming pain?
    Is it sad and futile, my belief
    in Your Almighty reign?
    Comes the answer in a whisper,
    “Son, your strength emboldens Mine,
    and your role as hell’s resister
    calls to courage, and to refine
    the treasure I sent my Son to share;
    and you shall meet Him in the air.”

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
