Bow Our Heads …

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 consequences of conavirus flu – and all other 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.

David and his family need prayer. His mother reports he has been intubated and is on a ventilator now.

Mark is in critical condition after contracting pneumonia from a traumatic rib fracture after he fell while running. His condition has deteriorated since then. Mark’s family and staff appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

Oran was born three weeks early with Down syndrome and heart defect. Open heart surgery was done this morning. Can we get some prayers for this innocent little angel.

Please say a prayer for Violet. A week ago, Violet was admitted to the hospital. In the very stressful and frightening days since, Violet has fought against what has been diagnosed as severe pneumonia. She tested negative for COVID-19, but remains severely ill.

Jerry’s right hand not doing well and is afraid losing his hand.

Scarlett isn’t doing good this week, her weight is down and she has a fever. Her blood and platelets are all low and she is having to stay in the hospital.

Madi, 16, has relapsed. She was told by her team today she will die, so now she knows, maybe two months.

Jules is battling cancer again. She had beaten it but it is back and this time she has no insurance.

Dixie is six years old and on life support for heart failure.

Angie underwent surgery again today to replace the part of her skull they removed back in January. Please pray for her safety and that she will heal quickly.

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, David, Mark, Oran, Violet, Jerry, Scarlett, Madi, Jules, Dixie, Angie, 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: Pray without ceasing — Thessalonians 5:17
