Today’s Conversation with God

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)

Pray for students and teachers as they begin preparations to start back to school.

Steve is experiencing some relentless chest congestion.

Please pray for Stacia, short of breath again.

Nick is recovering from a broken leg.

Specific prayer requests for Jack:  positive reaction to chemo; decreased white blood cell count by a lot (need to go from 340,000 to 100,000 at least); and limited side effects from chemo.

Brody has been in a serious car accident and is seriously injured. He has been life flighted to a hospital in Wichita, KS.

Farrah has been battling a rare kidney disease for years. On Oct.  8, she will be having a renal kidney auto transplant.

Amanda has developed an allergic reaction to the adhesive that is part of the duo-derm patches she needs to help heal her wound.

100 year old Millie is blind and having trouble remembering people.  She is also having trouble getting around because she has diabetes.

A young couple pregnant with their first child has received news their unborn baby is showing possible developmental deficiencies. There is a wide range of possible outcomes – from slight vision problems to blindness and cognitive disabilities. They have asked for our prayers. Please pray God’s will be done … and for strength for the couple to handle the unknown.

Susan has been rushed to the hospital with gallbladder issues! Please pray for strength and for wisdom for the doctors and surgeons!

Andrew is tired from his fight with pancreatic cancer and is ready to go home. Pray for a peaceful journey.

There were a host of unspoken prayer requests and we heard of a number of deaths this week. 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 thank you for the good news received by Bethany and Maryanne, but 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 students and teachers as they start the new school year, Steve, Stacia, Nick, Jack, Brody, Farrah, Amanda, Millie, the young family facing decisions, Susan, Andrew, 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: Faith is like wi fi. It’s invisible but it has the power to connect you to what you need.
