Dear Father God

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.

Scott has been dealing with liver problems for several years.  Now it’s been determined he may have some kind of cancer. He underwent surgery this week for evaluation of the cancer.  Please keep him and his parents in your prayers.

Tara’s momma is struggling. The nursing home called and said she has been super emotional so the doctor wants to re-evaluate and do a new psychological evaluation. Prayers please

Greg has battled cancer for almost seven years, and the doctors are giving him only days to live. He’s 41 years old and married with two children, 11 and 7. His son Jacob is asking everyone to pray for a miracle for his dad.

Pastor David from ChristForgiveness Ministries was recently arrested for “hate speech” in Canada.

His Warring Handmaid is asking prayers for healing from adrenal fatigue and PTSD/trauma. She is a mom/caretaker and burnt out. She prays, “Refresh me, Lord.”

Please keep praying for healing for Shirley’s broken pelvis, Alzheimer’s, refusal to eat, and chronic pain.

Nick’s wife is sick with pneumonia. She’s been sick like this for almost three weeks and it has been rough. If you can offer a prayer for her prompt recovery it would be much appreciated

Melodee underwent gall bladder surgery now. Pray there be no complications, and she has a swift recovery.

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 needs an electric wheelchair, other medical needs, co-pays, living expenses, and to get the dogs their current vet care. He needs prayers.

We heard of  a number of deaths this week 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 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 Scott, Tara’s momma, Greg, Pastor David, His Warring Handmaiden, Shirey, Nick’s wife, Melodee, Rev. Kevin, and all those needing Your healing touch. 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: Because of Jesus, we know darkness doesn’t have to win, because light has come.

  1. If I may, I’d like to share a prayer written by Andre irnheld, and found among his effects after his death on July 27, 1942, in Libya.

    I’m asking You God, to give me what You have left.
    Give me those things which others never ask of You.
    I don’t ask You for rest, or tranquility.
    Not that of the spirit, the body, or the mind.
    I don’t ask You for wealth, or success, or even health.
    All those things are asked of You so much Lord,
    that you can’t have any left to give.
    Give me instead Lord what You have left.
    Give me what others don’t want.
    I want uncertainty and doubt.
    I want torment and battle.
    And I ask that You give them to me now and forever Lord,
    so I can be sure to always have them,
    because I won’t always have the strength to ask again.
    But give me also the courage, the energy,
    and the spirit to face them.
    I ask You these things Lord,
    because I can’t ask them of myself.

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