Jesus, We 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).

Robin is seeking prayers after two surgeries. four hospital stays totaling 23 days, and countless scans, procedures, and medication. There’s home healthcare and rehabilitation/physical therapy happening as well.

Joe seeks prayers of discernment.

Please pray for Victoria, who has had a rough last two years, losing her my grandma, marriage, and home. She just recently had to leave her job because it was making her sick. Currently, she is unemployed and a single mom with three girls. Prayers for a job that will be good for her. She has had rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia for the last 20 years so it’s hard to do a heavy job and that’s all she seems to find.

David has been hospitalized since Dec. 26 fighting sepsis from ruptured bowel. He was moved out of ICU last week, and was on his feet for a few minutes. He and his family need prayer.

Kerrie was in a hit and run car accident on her way home from work. The impact pushed her into the car in front of her. Please pray for her physical pain to heal and the insurance issues to be resolved.

Janie has kidney and bladder infection issues. Doctors need the Lord’s guidance in treating her; prayers to be restored to health.

Andrew continues to struggle. He is having a tough time breathing.  Tough times for a tough guy. Prayers are keeping him afloat.

Gary was just diagnosed with Stage IV laryngeal cancer. He and Peggie are born again; but she is struggling with her faith. Let’s pray for Peggie and Gary.

Mary asks urgent prayers for students MR, ZJ, RK-B. and especially DP who is developing an attitude like she’s straight outta Compton — language included. By the way, she teaches three year olds.It would be a great time for prayer for all our youth who are being swayed by film, music, peer pressure, and social media … not in a Godly way.

Greg was informed there was nothing else the doctors can do. Prayers for comfort and peace. He is diagnosed with lung cancer and metastasis.

There were a host of unspoken prayer requests and we heard of a number of deaths this week, including Rocco, a 14 month old grandson of one of my group’s members. 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 Robin, Joe, Victoria, David, Kerrie, Janie, Andrew, Gary, Peggie, Mary, our youth, Greg, and all those needing Your healing and guiding touch. We pray for the families of all those You have called home, including Rocco. 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: My prayer is whether things are familiar or strange, I would be authentic and real.
