Do Not Be Anxious …

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. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 (NIV)

We lift up Jim, who is recuperating at home after another stint in the hospital for pneumonia and COPD  (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

Rev. Kevin is still 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.

Christine has pneumonia for the first time ever.

Please continue lifting Angelina in prayer. She’s now in a coma from complications from pneumonia and a staph infection. She is a young mom.

Sophi is asking for prayers her liver enzyme count will be lowered.

Erica is in her thirties and very ill. The doctor called her and told her she has to see a surgeon ASAP.

Patrick is fighting for his life right now from cancer.

Juan had a stroke and two brain aneurysms. He had surgery last night. Please, pray for him and his wife and young daughter who need him so much!

Haile is experiencing sudden excruciating knee pain.

Please pray for Drazen’s right foot. It’s heavily swollen and hurting after getting bit by a spider yesterday while at the lake.

Victor is at the hospital. The assumption is he has a kidney stone and the concern is it has created a blockage. Any and all prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Khala is undergoing her chemotherapy and not holding up well at all. Please, please remember her in your 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 Jim, Kevin, Christine, Angelina, Sophi, Erica, Patrick, Juan, Haile, Drazen, Victor, Khala 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.
