Thy Will Be Done

As we build this community prayer platform, 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.

Let’s remember to approach the throne room and 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.

What is one of the most important things we should do as Christians?

Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, (Ephesians 6:18)

Stacia sent a quick update. It’s been a week since she went to the hospital and while she’s still having breathing issues every now and then, they are fewer than before. She also have a little more energy. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. Please continue to pray, she asks, as she’s definitely not out of the woods.

Victoria could use some prayer for herself and her family. Last week, she fell and broke bones in both of her feet and is  in a lot of pain They currently live on the second floor with a one year old but are potentially looking at moving to a downstairs apartment. A big blessing through the trial, however, was some help with childcare that came through. God provides.

Shawna is scheduled  for surgery Monday for cervical cancer. She asks for prayers, energy, and love.

Joel asks for prayers for his upcoming shoulder surgery Wednesday,

Jennifer is seeking extreme prayers for her family … four siblings and Mom.

Jesse’s dad underwent long surgery on his throat. It was suppose to be a simple surgery, but the doctor reported it was one of the hardest surgeries he had ever done. Jesse’s dad is having a hard time breathing and has been moved to ICU .

Meghan asks for prayer after suffering a miscarriage.

Deborah said she really loves Jesus, but asks for prayers for her health, which is keeping her from reading her Bible like she should, and praying like she wants to. She said she in pain from her back 24/7, is tired and fatigued, and her mind is foggy.

Beth and Diane have a prayer request! They are both getting ready to move in the next few months and ask for strength and focus to get it together!

Lesley had a situation in the last few days that has left her feeling confused and on edge. Prayers for peace and God’s wisdom in dealing with it would be great!

Marianne  said  it sure wouldn’t hurt asking for prayer for something that’s takes so much more time to get done.

Jane and Joe would appreciate prayers to hear, understand, and follow where the Lord leads them.

Paula is asking prayers their house will sell quickly.

Lisa can’t even find a way to type her prayer request, but God knows. It’s for her family.

Susan asks for traveling prayers.

Jeanne is asking prayers for wisdom as she walks a rough patch with her sons, and for her in-laws. Lots of health stuff there, and they don’t know the Lord … yet.

Kelly-Robert is asking prayers for her writing, taking time to go through the schooling, listening to God, obeying His leading, and family where there is a lot going on.

Kevin is still facing the toughest challenge of his life with chronic kidney disease, crippling arthritis, neuropathy, a totally pinched sciatic nerve, and extremely painful bone on bone in his right hip.

Jim is asking for prayer as he was given the opportunity to seed a church in Tennessee to reach the sick and suffering lost and hopeless souls afflicted with addiction, giving them hope and real help while ministering the love of Jesus Christ into their life.

Steve is entering his final hours of life after a long battle with cancer. His family is at his bedside and they ask for strength, peace, and mercy.

Andrew inches closer to the end as well. He reported bleeding from places that really should not bleed, breathing off the top of his lungs, and swellings along his neck and collarbone that make it hard to swallow anything more than a cold drink.

There were a host of unspoken prayer requests and we heard of a number of deaths this week, including John, Dave and Sharon’s sister. Prayers for their families as they go through this earthly trial. We grieve … heaven rejoices.

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 Stacia, Victoria, Shawna, Joel, Jennifer, Jesse’s dad, Meghan, Deborah, Beth, Diane, Leslie, Marianne, Jane, Joe, Paula, Lisa, Susan, Jeanne, Kelly-Robert, Kevin, Jim, Steve, Andrewand all those needing Your healing touch. We pray for the families of all those You have called home, especially the families of John, Dave and Sharon’s sister. 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.

  1. Thanks for the calloiut, Joe. Today’s been hard. Too much blood.

    Yes, dear Lord, Thy will be done,
    but what indeed’s Thy will?
    A suburbanite’s life of fun,
    or my view unto a kill?
    I see my peers in happiness
    with vacations and SUVs
    while I’m fighting a mindless
    spawn of malignancies.
    Did these people somehow earn
    your favour and your grace?
    Is it futile, that I yearn’
    Your presence in this place?
    Lord, I know I screwed up bad,
    but are You really that durned mad?

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