Prayer Room …

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.

Our world is currently being battered and torn with the coronavirus pandemic. But we know Christ defeats all evil – illness, death, and even Satan himself.

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).

And, so, Lord, we come to You with our petitions, knowing and expecting Your will to be done.

Thoughts and prayers to all worldwide suffering from the consequences of coronavirus flu – and all other strains. Many – many – of the prayer requests are covid-19 related … people diagnosed … people sick … people dying … relatives worried and isolated. We are in this together – in prayer!

Please keep the victims of abuse in your prayers. Whether it be physical, emotional, sexual or neglect, this time in particular is very horrifying for them to be trapped in a house with their abuser(s) and not being able to escape.

We also need to pray for colorblind peace. Racism will remain a plague until we stop looking at people as black or white, but as human beings created by the same Creator. We pray for new eyes, calmer heads, and softer hearts.

Sharon had surgery to remove her thyroid because of cancer. Prayers requested.

Floyd is recovering from open heart surgery. Prayers requested.

Michelle completed a critical surgical procedure and needs to be lifted up.

Mona has been having female problems, possible early menopause issues. She has been admitted to the hospital for tests for possible cancer. Please add her to your prayer list.

Melissa has a badly infected gallbladder. She had surgery today. Please pray for her and her surgeons and doctors.

Please pray for six week old Darwin. He is not breathing on his own and has blood in his lungs.

In much need of prayers. Ruth thought she pulled a ligament in her right arm. However, it turns out her cancer apparently has come back. She lost her left kidney due to cancer and the doctors said it might return. She goes to the doctor Thursday to discuss next steps.

Jeannette is praying for guidance, direction, and hope as she and her estranged husband reconcile their marriage.

Audrey, too, is asking prayers for her marriage to be restored. Her husband is talking about divorce. They have two toddlers.

Please pray for three year old Kelsey. She is very sick and doctors cannot figure out what is causing rash, fever, joint pain, swelling, and blisters.

Please pray for a two year old baby named Journey. She is in the hospital following a wreck that killed her brother and father.

Please pray for Kerry, who is having acute heart attacks right now. He is hospitalized and has a cardiologist appointment.

Michelle asks for prayers for a suitable home. Her current lease expires June 6.

Annet  has been getting anxious in the middle of the night and asks for prayer.

Prayers for Jordan who is struggling with Crohns.

Andrew continues to struggle. The tumors continue to grow, meaning eating, drinking, swallowing, and breathing difficult. He continues to battle through prayer – and a sense of humor.

Lyndsey is in the hospital with a infection in her fractured ankle. There are some complications making it a bit serious.Prayers sought.

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 Sharon, Floyd, Michelle, Mona, Melissa, Darwin, Ruth, Jeanette, Audrey, Kelsey, Journey, Kerry, Michelle, Annet, Jordan, Andrew, Lyndsey , 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: Prayer is the inner bath of love into which the soul plunges itself. — St. John Vianney
