Love & 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. 

Andrew continues to struggle. As he said, “things worse than they have been for me, with the pain and pukes and runs uncontrolled, with food being something to force … the possibility of the miraculous becomes real The veil has been lifted, and I can see across forever.” Keep him in your prayers.

Mary asks we pray against her anxiety and her bladder infection.

Tamar was rushed to the hospital earlier this week after a possible suicide attempt.

Leah sees her gastroparesis specialist Thursday, and would be very grateful if anybody would pray for wisdom for my doctor. She is not doing well at all, having a difficult time eating without feeling completely miserable.

Prayers of strength and healing to Conchata as she battles for her life.

Zubair asks for prayers. Both kidneys are infected and he has renal stones in both kidneys.

Rosemary is struggling to keep O2 up to 90 and is spending most of her time on CPAP.  Pray she can get through the weekend without having to go to the ER.  

Prayers requested for Kerry, who is still very ill with water on his lungs.

Please join in prayer for Noah’s test results to be clear and doctors can figure out what is wrong with his stomach. He is only six.

Please pray for Steve who has an eye injury that isn’t healing. He’s scheduled to have his eye sewn shut.

Please pray for Thelma who has breast cancer.

Sangeeta is experiencing hip and abdominal pain. Prayers requested.

Cecilia is scheduled for radiation for cancer. Prayers asked.

Dianne prays her memories return and her mind stays clear and focused on the Lord. She asks us to join her in prayer.

Evelyn has breathing problems and thanks you for your prayers.

Al was diagnosed with cancer and asks for prayer.

Please continue to pray for Ann’s miraculous recovery from sepsis.

Please pray Ruth will heal from cancer.

Pray God restores Eric’s brain so he can speak, eat, move his body, and walk again. In Jesus’ name!

Please bless and heal Sierra of epilepsy and reduce seizures.

Betty asks for prayer for the complete healing of her left frozen shoulder and for full range of motion to return.

J needs a miracle healing to take her pain away. Prayers requested.

Prayers asked to bless Ana and all pregnant women to have healthy babies.

Prayer asked for Rose’s pain to subside following back surgery.

Please pray for Dawn’s health! She has an aggressive cancer and is in a lot of pain.

Becky asks for prayers her tests come out well and help doctors find out what is going on and a course of treatment.

Please pray Trudy’s healing from a stroke and extensive colon surgery. She is sooo very very weary and discouraged.

Coleman is asking for healing prayers for his  stomach and throat.

Jay was concerned about blood clots and went to the ER. No clots were found, but valves aren’t closing all the way allowing blood to flow backwards. Prayers requested.

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, Mary, Tamar, Leah, Conchata, Zubair, Rosemary, Kerry, Noah, Steve, Thelma, Sangeeta, Cecilia, Diane, Evelyn, Al, Ann, Ruth, Eric, Sierra, Betty, J, Ana, Rose, Dawn, Becky, Trudy, Coleman, Jay, 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: If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is “thank you” that would suffice. — Meister Eckhart
