Jesus, I Trust in You …

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).

Joe will be having a colonoscopy Wednesday.

Prayers for final exams would be great for Angelina.

Grace’s health has been not good lately. She has new tests scheduled and a  new diet to try, but two weeks of feeling not good with no immediate sign of relief in sight is quite demoralizing. She asks for prayers for strength, perserverence, and hope.

Carly’s LDL came back at 183. Normal is under 100. She is 28 and shouldn’t have heart problems.

Kristeen has been battling Stage 4 Lung Cancer but after a meeting with her doctor, oncologist, and hospice, they feel it is time to stop treatments because the treatments are causing more harm then good.

William is living with kidney failure. The good news is he is on a transplant list and has a few live donors undergoing testing.

Arya had an allergic reaction to amoxicillin and during her pediatrician appointment the doctor asked her parents to take her to a cardiologist. She may have congenital heart condition.

Noelle lost her job and there’s no income coming in, no money in the bank and bills are due at the end of the month.

Karen would appreciate prayers. She had an amyloid tumor removed in July and doctors thought  was localized, but now three more tumors were discovered on the left side. She can’t get in to see the specialist until Jan. 30 and asks for prayers God makes a way for a sooner appointment.

Dale is dealing with several health issues.

Juan  is back in the hospital with pneumonia while fighting ALS.

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 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 Joe, Angelina, Grace, Carly, Kristeen, William, Ary, Noelle, Karen, Dale, Juan, 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

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Pray before you overthink.

  1. I know that I should trust in God,
    and I know that Jesus saves,
    but I hope that They won’t find this odd:
    I’m sick of digging graves.
    Another old dog died today,
    and he’d come so very far
    from being an abandoned stray
    to a social canine star.
    I know that death is part of life,
    and it’s something to accept,
    but as I held my sobbing wife,
    I wondered if I’m next.
    If I am, then please attend
    to spread ashes with my canine friends.


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