Prayers Up

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. 

Janel spent a few days in the hospital with severe abdominal pain. No real conclusion, but she has an appointment with a specialist in September. Share good thoughts and lots of prayer.

Andrew can’t keep food in at either end, is very tired, and has massive swelling in the neck and chest, but he continues to fight the fight. Keep him in your prayers.

Abby asks prayers for the three tests she has this month.

Gail is on her way to a trauma center with her whole left side numb. Tests at the local hospital ruled out stroke after three CAT scans, but she is still unable to stand. Prayers requested.

Please send prayers for Brenda who is in ICU with stage 4 kidney failure.

Prayers up for Margie. She tested positive for covid while planning to have her gall bladder removed. Doctors want to postpone surgery for six weeks.

Please pray for Annie who has been in intense physical pain for three straight days and the pain is getting worse.

Joyce is fighting and struggling with leukemia and all/every prayer is needed!

Victoria discovered a lump on her neck which turned out cancerous and is in the middle of her thyroid pushing the gland up and out, causing a “subtle protrusion.” She will undergo surgery Monday to remove the tumor, her thyroid, and a couple of nearby lymph nodes. Prayers requested.

Bryce was rushed to the hospital with a collapsed lung. The family is asking for prayers.

Geska has been very busy between treatments, visits from homecare nurses, and bedtime. To make things worse, his hands are trembling all the time. He asks to be kept in your prayers.

Please pray for Arielle who has been experiencing chest pains that started last night .

Prayers for Richard who is looking for a job and has become very frustrated.

Please pray for Lynnette. The doctor said there is something wrong with her liver.

Please pray Sandhya who is suffering from leg pain and depression from her job in a hospital.

Please pray for Brijlani who is suffering from blindness in both eyes.

aJerome asks for prayers for his right foot wound and toe fungus.

Bruno still hurts. His tooth is healing, but his neck and head still hurt. Prayers requested.

Pray for Gracie for her high blood pressure.

Please pray for Ron whose cancer has spread.

Please pray for Al to be cancer free and live many years without suffering.

Praying for Eileen and a good healing process.

Prayers for baby Rosie’s doctor appointment to go well.

Martha has cancer and her family is struggling financially right now so they cannot afford to buy her medicine right now. May the Lord heal her and provide for her family during these difficult times. May the Lord strengthen her family and open doors for them. May the Lord lead them to the right people who will help them.

Please pray God would save Emily’s life from crippling fear, anxiety, and depression.

Please bless Ashley and give her a miracle healing since she has been taken off life support.

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 Janel, Andrew, Abby, Gail, Brenda, Margie, Annie, Joyce, Victoria, Bryce, Geska, Arielle, Lynnette, Sandhya, Brijlani, Jerome, Bruno, Gracie, Ron, Al, Eileen, Rosie, Martha, Emily, Ashley, 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: Prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God. – Teresa of Avila
