Send Those Prayers

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 seeks prayers of discernment.

Rocco, a great-grandson of one of my group’s members, and his family need prayers. The 14 month old baby boy fell in a pool, drowned, but was revived Tuesday. He had an MRI which indicated no brain stem damage but some basal ganglia and thalamus damage which can’t be accurately assessed until swelling in his brain subsides. His labs are improving, medication is gradually being weaned away, and he’s wiggling, stretching and looking at family. Thank you ALLLL for your support, thoughts and prayers. Please pray he’ll be able to increase breathing on his own this weekend.

Dave is dealing with a roving blood clot. Doctors can’t figure out why since he is on heavy duty blood thinners. He is staying positive but can use some prayerful uplifting.

Andrew continues to struggle. Unbelievably bad now, he shared, tumor is the size of a billiard ball in the navel, hooking onto something bigger underneath, and he have to think through the act of swallowing. Tough times for a tough guy. Prayers are keeping him afloat.

Susan has been having migraine headaches and severe nausea. She hasn’t been able to hold down food or medicine for over a week with no relief. Please pray for her.

Dennis is in the hospital with pneumonia a week after a major surgery. A lung infection right after surgery has a 20-40% fatality rate. Keep him in your prayers.

Joann has brain cancer, as does Baby Lincoln, who just completed his fifth chemotherapy treatment. He has had a blood transfusion and appetite is not good.

Patricia is having stomach problems.

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, Rocco, Dave, Andrew, Susan, Dennis, Joann, Lincoln, Patricia, and all those needing Your healing and guiding 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: There is no need to get to a place of prayer. Pray wherever you are. — Oswald Chambers

  1. So many we must pray for,
    so many are out there;
    Tell me, God, do you know the score,
    and do Y’all still care?
    I know You gave Your only Son
    so what we deserved might go away
    but did we make this come undone
    by what we do each day?
    Did we take this to our hearts,
    this priceless gift of grace,
    or did we rip it all apart,
    and throw it in Your face?
    Are we worth a backward glance,
    a pause, and, yes, another chance?
