Power of Prayer

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.

Jackie’s rotator cuff repair surgery went well. She is recuperating at home for the next six weeks.

Lord, we lift up Dave who probably won’t be getting out of hospice after all. He is declining very rapidly. We lift up his family as well.

LoLo needs  prayers. She is frustrated and in a lot of back pain.

DeBorah offered a praise and prayer request. Her blood pressure is now under control and her headaches have stopped. She is taking her meds every day. She is asking for prayers as she deals with the IRS and a levy due by June 30, plus other expenses to avoid losing the contents of her storage unit, which includes her Army uniforms and medals and  personal items from her parents.

Nancy is asking for prayers following major surgery.

Dani needs her prayer warriors for her  family. She says, “We really need this potential change in our lives.”

Kendal is very, very sick from the chemo. Pray! Pray! Pray!

Please join Bill in prayer asking God to send a job his way. Homeless in 20 days.

Erica’s aunt and godmother has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Summer asks for prayer. Every night the uncomfortable feeling in her knee turns into excruciating pain.

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 Dave, LoLo, DeBorah, Nancy, Dani, Kendal,Bill, Erica’s aunt/godmother, Summer, 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: Bitterness and resentment steal what they have no right to take … our peace, our joy, our fullness of life.
