Thoughts and 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).

Thoughts and prayers to all worldwide suffering from the flu – all strains.

Andrew continues to struggle. He is having a tough time breathing and has lost his voice.  Tough times for a tough guy. Prayers – and a sense of humor – are keeping him afloat.

Richard is facing some serious cardiovascular issues.

Thomas is asking for prayer. On day 16 of flu and worsening. Doctors are now treating him for pre-pneumonia. He also twisted his knee last Wednesday, was unable to breath normal because the pain was so severe. EMTs got him down the stairs and into the ambulance. After spending seven hours in ER, he is now wheelchair bound.

Johnny’s depression is tumultuous and his suicidal thoughts are being perpetuated due to his traumatic past. His antidepressants are making him worse. He is segregated and not wanting to hang out with anyone. Please pray for his healing … and for all those despondent.

Please join in prayer for Wendy, who has been ill for a while now.

Please pray for Denise who is battling cancer. She started chemo maintenance last night. It’s to be taken five nights in a row … double dosage from treatment. Praying her immune system continues to stays strong as the next cycle when the doctor intends to add another 100 mg to dosage.

Millie has completed chemo round 10. She really struggled with the stay but is doing great at her second day home. The family did have to go to ER for her broviac line to be repaired, since it sprung a leak. Thank you for continued prayers.

Please start your day praising God for His grace and lifting little Wyatt. Gods will is his key now to life.

Mark is in ICU again, heart working at 15% and not doing well. He was sick in 2004 with a virus that attacked his heart, recovered, but just recently been fighting for his life again. Need prayers.

Lincoln’s’ scan came back and has improved a lot! His bone lesions are almost all gone! He has a couple still there, but they are not as bright on the scan as they were, which is sooo good! Continue to pray for complete healing, to get his nausea and vomiting under control, and to get home for his birthday!

Karen was admitted to the hospital with possibly two blood clots to the lung. They are running more test in the morning. She is not sure how long she will be in the hospital for this time. She already has three tumors in the left abdomen. Prayers welcomed.

Beth needs prayer. They raised the rent and the family may have to move as they can’t  afford the increase because they are on a fixed income.

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 Andrew, Richard, Thomas, Johnny, Wendy, Denise, Millie, Wyatt, Mark, Lincoln, Karen, Beth, 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: Equipped with strength, God’s Word is our shield … as we go out each day on prayer’s battle field!
