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).

Lola has shingles in her ear which led to facial paralysis, vertigo, and nausea.  She is on a soft diet but can’t keep anything down so she was hospitalized to get IVs. Please pray for healing and comfort.

Barb needs prayer. Her dear friends must move from Arizona to Texas, she is her husband’s caregiver and her father in Indiana is in his last days. She’s hurting.

Operation Recovery Ministries, Haskell, TX, has two men coming in Monday. One has been clean a few weeks just got out of detox wanting more time in recovery. The other has been homeless for quite some time and is still an active meth addict. Please  keep us in your prayers along with all struggling with addictions.

Frank needs prayers to get through his bout with cancer.

Greda asks for prayers as  she takes her CPA board exam.

Cricket is asking for prayers as she starts a tough round of antibiotics Monday. Her body in the past hasn’t handled antibiotics well so she’s very concerned.

Brenda is facing a dire financial issue.

Cam has mild stages of lupus, is losing hair, and has no immune system. She needs prayers for direction with meds.

Frank, a WWII veteran, is about to pass. Please pray for a peaceful transition from this world to the next to meet the Lord.

Marlene was hospitalized with an abnormal EKG. She’s doing better but still needs tests … and prayers.

Andrew continues to fight the fight.

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. I ask for Your blessing as I minister to the Howland (ME) congregation. Please be with me, Lord. 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 blessing of Ivy Lynn and all newborns — Your promise of a future. We thank you for Annie’s recovery . 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 Lola, Barb, Operation Recovery Ministries, Frank, Greda, Cricket, Brenda, Cam, Frank, Marlene, 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: Three things in life that are most valuable: Love, Faith, Prayer.

  1. Lord, my God, this is really awful,
    can you please look over here?
    Is what’s happening really lawful,
    or are you Someone I should fear?
    Am I, like Job, made example,
    that the devil can do his best?
    Did You, Lord, forget your sample,
    and forget to do the rest?
    I can’t believe that you’ve forgotten
    that I am fair burning now,
    and I trust the Son begotten,
    but honestly don’t remember how.
    I do not mean to trouble You,
    but a little help, for I’m nearly through.

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