Prayer Team

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.

The deadliest monsoon in 11 years has triggered floods and multiple landslides in Nepal. Record snow and freezing temperatures hit parts of South America. Powerful thunderstorms rip through Midwest, leaving tens of thousands without power. Dangerous heat has built across the Southwest and South Plains this weekend and Monday. Southwest temps will range from the 110s to 125 in the hottest areas. Texas heat indices will be in the 100s, with some areas in the 110s. Tropical Storm Fay has been causing heavy rainfall and gusty winds as it moved into Northern New Jersey. Southeastern New York, Long Island, and New England. Continue lifting up in Jesus name!

Andrew continues to struggle. It was a bad week. Pain and puke. “This is my time … but  I shall light such a flame of hope and joy and love as shall never be put out,” he says, “It’s so much worse now than even last week (the ‘good old days’ were the day before yesterday!) but the blessings shine all the brighter. I have to witness that.”

Ana just smashed her finger and it’s turning super purple. She asks for prayers. “I can’t lose another finger.”

Please pray for Kristine. She is the ER. Pain is so really, really bad.

Jenna is undergoing a very serious procedure July 24 and asks for prayers. Her family will be there for my recovery and she won’t be able to work for eight weeks.

Mark is now on a ventilator in the hospital and not doing well at all. It’s not covid, but doctors hope to know more later today. Pray for him, please.

Izzy will be seeing the pediatric cardiologist  Monday morning. Please continue in prayer.

Brent has gone back into drugs, lost his great job, and is currently MIA. Can you lift him up in prayer?

Jen is asking for more prayers for strength and patience. Too much drama and selfishness after a loss in the family and she is about to snap.

Please pray for Jenni and all who are talking about suicide. May they get the help they need.

Prayers requested for Sylvia’s left knee, which is getting worse.

Please pray for Anna who is really struggling in a nursing home and not acting Christian at all.

Please pray for Margaret. She is having severe pain in her hip from cancer and they can’t seem to get it under control.

Please pray for Kanga, who is back in the hospital, and for God’s wisdom and guidance for her medical team.

Cindy is very ill and needs a prayer.

Ernie continues to struggle with his cancer. Please keep him and his family in your constant prayers.

Gaystella is asking for prayers for financial rescue.

Geodee is requesting a prayer for her health. She is 25 years old and was a normal healthy girl until March. She has been to a number of doctors because she is always in pain and having some type of symptom. Please pray she doesn’t have an autoimmune disease or cancer.

Please pray for Joe who had a bad parachute accident and is facing paralysis.  He is still in the hospital and will move to a rehab center for four months then home.

Twenty month old Leif has a very rare genetic condition which has resulted in two strokes, epilepsy, vision challenges and global development delay. Prayers are really needed to stop the condition affecting Leif going forward and to heal the damage its caused.

They took out half of Larry’s thyroid and sent it to pathology. They have no idea when they will hear back anything so he is on pins and needles. Pray for a swift and accurate determination of what is going on.

Things in Melissa’s life are going wrong and piling up on me. Please pray for the Lord to sustain her and her trust in Him will not waiver when darkness surrounds her.

Please, Lord, protect Lenny from throwing up again.

Please pray against the negative effects of Anthony’s medications and that God would heal his brain, spine, and nervous system.

Patrick prays to be released from financial bondage and asks your prayers as well.

Pray for Judy who needs peace right now following a situation that happened with a stranger.

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, Ana, Kristine, Jenna, Mark, Izzy, Brent, Jen, Jenni, Sylvia, Anna, Margaret, Nirajan, Kanga, Lennard, Carmenio, Luis, Gwen, Kyle, Karen, Jay, Sheila, Cindy, Ernie, Gaystella, Geodee, Joe, Leif, Larry, Melissa, Steve, Lenny, Anthony, Kevin, Patrick, Judy, 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

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Therefore, when you decide to undertake this work of prayer and feel by grace that you are called by God, lift up your heart to God with a meek stirring of Love. – Cloud of Unknowing
