Hear Our 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.

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 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. 

Scott needs prayers. He his back at Cleveland Clinic with liver problems and facing stints in the bio ducts to remove all the waste and poison to a bag. Long term, he faces surgery to scrape scar tissue to avoid additional blockages.

Joe was admitted to the hospital with a severe hand infection and sepsis.  He burned his had very bad awhile ago and developed a bad infection. He may lose his pinky finger and may also develop kidney failure from the sepsis.  Prayers for healing are needed.

Brian seeks prayers for ongoing illnesses that are sapping his strength.

Andrew continues to struggle. Yet he continues to battle through prayer – and a sense of humor.

Prayers appreciated for Rafael. He was hospitalized with a complete blockage and will be getting a triple bypass soon.

Please pray for Bailey who is in the hospital with a very serious blood infection.

Please continue to pray for Angela, who went for an MRI and other diagnostic tests to learn why her crossed eyes keep getting worse.

Keep Ann in your prayers. Her lymphoma has returned after spending a month in hospital last December having her immune system destroyed by chemo coupled with a bone marrow transplant.

James was in an accident today, suffering a broken neck which has paralyzed him. The doctor said he has few days to live.

Carol is in need of some prayer. She has been in bed since last Saturday and can’t keep anything down but liquids. Don’t know if it’s her gallbladder,  cancer or some sort of infection.

Morgan’s blood pressure has been high the past two days so the family is headed to the hospital to get some bloodwork done to determine if they will have a baby this weekend or wait until Tuesday. Please say a prayer for Morgan, Josh, and Emma Grace.

Joshua is about to have a minor surgery on his droopy eyelid. Pray for a safe and successful surgery, and speedy recovery!

Guy asks us to pray with him so he doesn’t lose his home.

Please pray for safety, protection, and provision as Maryann and family travel across the country for a new job.

Prayers requested for Carole who has neck and spine issues.

Matt has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Prayers requested.

Please pray for Jim. He fell last night and was very pale after he stood up. The family is worried it might have been a mini stroke.

Prayers asked for Cida who has been diagnosed with cancer.

Angelito is requesting healing prayers for his sciatica and cervical slipped disc.

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 Scott, Joe, Andrew, Rafael, Bailey, Angela, Ann, James, Carol, Morgan, Joshua, Guy, Maryann, Carole, Matt, Jim, Cito, Angelito, 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
