Prayer Time

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)

A praise. Ruth was successfully treated for a malignant tumor on her pancreas.

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

Please pray for Bob. He’s had very little to eat and very little to drink all week and has lost 14 pounds. He can’t keep anything down.

Judy fell a few days ago, cut her head and did a number on her knee.  The knee was cut bad and is painful.

Christine has been having severe bladder pain for the past couple of days,

Ben has been paralyzed with anxiety. Please pray for him.

Please pray for Keane, 24. Doctors are saying he has swelling on the brain and is in a deep coma, but does have some brain activity.

Kristeen got through all three procedures while at the hospital and is exhausted. Thankfully, her pain is not as bad right now, and hopefully she’ll be able to breathe easier soon enough.

Niki is at Sacred Heart Hospital and has had a rough couple days. She and husband Fred need prayers.

Andrew continues to battle. Latest development is a large tumor (yeah, lymphoma) on each side of the neck, making every new breath something of a relief and challenge.

Mariam is starting a new full time job tomorrow and is seeking prayer for its success.

Joe has changes coming to his life and asks for prayers for God’s direction.

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 Ruth, 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, Bob, Judy, Christine, Ben, Keane, Kristeen, Niki, Andrew, Mariam, Joe, and all those needing Your healing touch and guidance. 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: If life knocks you down, roll over and look at the stars.

    Brother, I am a retirement community manager led by the Lord. I need prayer as I interview for a new position this week. I am a maturing believer of 30+ years and still learning. I am a father and grandfather who loves prayer warriors. God bless you for your leadership.

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