Praying

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

DeBorah is asking for prayer that God will lead her to proper treatment for her high blood pressure, the right medication, to help her eat the right foods, be strong to avoid salt and sugar and only eat fruits and vegetables. Her blood pressure was 174/90! She wants to remain strong and healthy so she can take care of her brother Stephen who has autism.

Rev. Kevin is facing the toughest challenge of his life, and so far he’s been facing it alone with his two dogs. He has chronic kidney disease, crippling arthritis, neuropathy, a totally pinched sciatic nerve, and his right hip is bone on bone and extremely painful. He has no one to push him in a regular wheelchair and is trying to get an electric wheelchair, so he can continue to have independence and care for his dogs. He needs an electric wheelchair, other medical needs, co-pays, living expenses, and to get the dogs their current vet care. He needs prayers.

Mia was in a serious car accident and needs your prayers.

Prayers are asked for baby Tate Lee Paul.

Nancy is recovering from a total hip replacement, but has lost both her primary and secondary job.

Wendy is tending to her husband who is doing poorly on chemo.

Gharidah  had a terrible fall from her home rooftop to ground saving her cats. Fracture, bruises and stitches. Please lift her up.

Ericka and her husband need to be lifted up. Her husband was rushed  to the emergency room and is now in the Burn Unit after his face caught fire from his oxygen.

Jane is suffering from stomach cancer.

A father has requested for us to please pray for his active duty son stationed at Ft Eustis. His wife took off with everything, including his kids. He’s depressed and struggling.

Please pray for Sean’s wife. She is suffering from a lot of anxiety and is on the verge of depression. Her family has cast her aside in the wake of an investigation into what happened to her in her childhood, and she’s really struggling with it all.

Karen has been going through a lot of health and family issues and asked for prayers and support. God knows her burden and it is very overwhelming.

Dave continues to battle brain cancer.

We heard of  a number of deaths this week, including Whitney’s ex-husband, Karin’s husband who had a massive heart attack and died, and Cassondra’s stepson who unexpectedly died at home.

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 DeBorah, Rev. Kevin, Tate Lee Paul, Nancy, Wendy and her husband, Gharidah, Erika and her husband, a father’s active son and all active service men and women, Sean’s wife, Karen and Dave. We pray for the families of all those You have called home, especially Whitney’s ex-husband, Karin’s husband and Cassondra’s stepson. 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: Remember sometimes I can be my biggest obstacle to the success I am desiring. It starts with me!
