Prayer … Care … Share …

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. 

Special prayer requests have been made for orphanages in Kenya, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and right here in the United States. The need is real.

There were also quite a few requests for students and the new school year. We ask, Lord, You bless the students, teachers, and administrators as they face new learning/teaching challenges this year. Keep them safe.

Financial issues were also high on the prayer lists with millions still out of work. Sustain those who are hurting financially. Give us and them our daily bread.

Fran fell last week and broke her left hip. Prayers requested for a speedy recovery.

Stephanie is dealing with cataracts. No surgery yet, but her sight is getting weaker and more cloudy. Prayers appreciated.

Prayers requested for Debby who is recovering from cancer surgery.

Kaleb underwent jaw surgery this week and needs prayers during his recovery.

Andrew touched bases with us. He promises he “won’t give voice to despair” … and “speak hope always.” Keep him in your prayers as he continues to fight the fight.

Alice finally got another job and starts Monday. She is asking for prayers.

Allan is experiencing daily migraines and headaches. Please pray.

Daniela asks for prayers as she battles cerebral palsy.

Henna is asking for prayers for a normal and safe pregnancy and be blessed with a healthy baby soon.

Please pray for Karen’s sore gums to heal.

Please pray for Chong who is going for an angiogram.

Please pray for Shalom who had open heart surgery this week.

Please pray for Maria who struggles with extreme mental and emotional issues.

Please pray for Brandon. He was in a car accident and didn’t think he was hurt, just had a few bruises. He was staying with his sister and the next day she couldn’t wake him up. He suffered a major stroke and his right side is paralyzed and he cannot speak.

Please give Deb peace and comfort. She had an EKG done and the findings came back abnormal so she needs to have another test done next week before her finger surgery scheduled next Friday (Dept. 4).

Please pray for Pam as she faces surgery on her back this upcoming week

Anna Marie has leukemia and is going into second round of treatment. The eight year old needs prayer.

Please pray for Becky who is receiving treatment for breast cancer. It spread before the treatment started.

Healing prayers for Terry who is recovering from a blood clot in his brain.

Prayer requested for Ron who suffered a stroke this morning.

Please pray for Bears. She was diagnosed with liver cancer.

M is suffering with severe wet cough, vomiting, and eye infection. Prayers requested.

Please pray for Carol who is recovering from pacemaker surgery. She can’t use her left arm right now.

Ashton needs prayers. He has indicated he is thinking about taking his own life or hurting someone.

Devine has a mental health wellness doctor’s appointment Monday (Aug. 31).

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 Fran, Stephanie, Debby, Kaleb, Andrew, Alice, Allan, Daniela, Henna, Karen, Chong, Shalom, Maria, Brandon, Deb, Pam, Anna Marie, Becky, Terry, Ron, Bears, Devine,  M, Carol, Ashton, 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: Any concern too small to be turned into prayer is too small to be made into a burden. – Corrie Ten Bloom
