Join Us in Prayer …

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.

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.

Fatherhood does not come with a manual, and reality teaches us that some fathers excel while others fail. We ask for Your blessings for them all – and forgiveness where it is needed. This Father’s Day we remember the many sacrifices fathers make for their children and families, and the ways – both big and small – they lift children to achieve dreams thought beyond reach. So too, we remember all those who have helped fill the void when fathers pass early or are absent – grandfathers and uncles, brothers and cousins, teachers, pastors and coaches – and the women of our families.For those who are fathers,we ask for wisdom and humility in the face of the task of parenting. Give them the strength to do well by their children and by You. In Your Holy name, O God, we pray. Amen — Rev. Chuck Currie

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 household 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 and white, but as human beings created by the same Creator. We pray for new eyes, calmer heads, and softer hearts.

Joan took a tumble while walking her dog and ended up in the hospital for overnight observation. Prayers requested.

Andrew continues to struggle. He had a respiratory emergency this week. Kind of bad, scary, and, like, totally a bummer. Yet he continues to battle through prayer – and a sense of humor.

DL passed out during his stand-up show. Prayers up for him!

Madison woke up with her anxiety through the roof. She is asking for some prayers her way.

Melissa has breast cancer and has to have a mastectomy. She is trying to decide if she should just go ahead and have a double one. She is asking our prayer warriors to please pray for her.

Please pray for an elderly fellow, Ted. He has been in the hospital for a while and things are not looking good.

Please pray for Concetta who is going through a very difficult time.

Alyssa is a single mom with three small children who has two job interviews Monday. Prayers requested for meaningful employment.

Please pray for Lee who is suffering from chronic back pain, stress, anxiety, and depression.

Lee is experiencing difficulty with disability insurance. Prayers requested for a speedy and equitable resolution.

Leroy also asks for prayers his disability will be reinstated.

Danielle’s marriage needs a miracle. Please pray both her and Jacks eyes be open to the truth and God restores and redeems what feels like is dead.

Brad asks for prayers for a needed word from the Lord for tomorrow’s sermon; a strong anointing from the Lord to preach His Word by His power; and He would work through him.

Four year old James had a skin problem flare up again. Prayers requested.

Deb asks for prayer guidance as she makes decision for her retirement and future.

Please continue to pray for Lindsey and her home situation.

Please pray for Michelle whose blood pressure is still high and her anxiety through the roof because of it. She has a doctor’s appointment Monday.

Pray for Tony and Susie’s marriage restoration.

Please pray for Cathy who recently received a breast cancer diagnosis. They have more tests to do, but it appears surgery and treatment will be required.

Please pray for Barry, he needs guidance.

Please pray for John to have true and deep clarity about his life and about marriage.

Lavanya is suffering with severe allergy on her hands..Please pray for her.

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 Joan, Andrew, DL, Madison, Melissa, Ted, Concetta, Alyssa, Lee, Lee, Leroy, Danielle and Jack, Brad, James, Deb, Lindsey, Michelle, Tony and Susan, Cathy, Barry, John, Lavanya, 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: Do not forget that the value and interest of life is not so much to do conspicuous things … as to do ordinary things with the perception of their enormous value. – Teilhard de Chardin
