Prayer Call …

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.

Natural disasters continue. Keep those in the path of fires and storms safe and focused on You, Lord.

Keep Andrew in your prayers as he continues to fight the fight. He contacted me the other day. “Things went south real hard today, and I need your prayers. Pain went off the scale, and other things, and I am very, very scared.” Prayers. Prayers. Prayers.

Six month old Francesca was diagnosed with an extremely rare and very aggressive rhabdoid brain tumor this week. The family is looking at any and all treatments right now, including experimental. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.

Aaron is recovering from gallbladder surgery. Prayers requested.

Please pray for James who will be going under the knife.

Please pray Viviane’s neuropathy does not get any worse and she will be able to continue to walk.

Bertie prays the medication for fibromyalgia is effective and asks you pray as well.

Edward has been diagnosed with stomach cancer and would appreciate prayers.

Catherine was hit yesterday by a truck when leaving her subdivision. She is in very serious condition. Doctors removed her spleen, an ovary, and inches of her colon. She also fractured her pelvis and clavicle and damaged her vertebrae. She is 19 years old. Please be in prayer for her and the family.

James has developed a blood clot in his leg which has postponed a scheduled colon surgery. Prayers requested.

Charlie is recovering from back surgery and has requested prayers.

Pam was hospitalized with numbness in her arm. Prayers requested.

John is asking for prayer to have his kidney and liver functions restored naturally and for his vision to return.

Elaine has a collapsed lung with pneumonia. Prayers requested.

Sheila asks for prayers. She fell against some rocks a week ago and has injured her left knee.

Please join in prayer for Adrianna who has blood clots in her body and is in the hospital.

Please pray for Sanjay who has been suffering from digestion and weakness problems for the last six months.

Please pray for Raian’s healing and to allow his lungs to get back to functionally normal with no shortness of breath.

Prayers requested for Stephanie who just had breast surgery for cancer /

Emmanuel is undergoing chemotherapy and requests prayer.

Amelia is suffering from a rare condition and could use prayers.

Kindly pray for Shalini. She has kidney failure and breathing problems, high blood pressure, shouts a lot, and has lost her health completely. She is only skin and bones

Elizabeth’s eyes hurt. There is pulling and shifting out of place and dryness in her eyes. Prayers requested.

Please pray for Bill who has herniated disks in neck and back and is in a lot of pain.

Aboli needs healing from blood pressure problems, bulging disc, acid reflux, and asthma. Prayers requested.

Please pray for Christopher that he may recover from his surgery.

Pray Peter gets urgent treatment for prostate cancer in time to save his life.

Please pray for Philip’s broken femur to heal completely.

Please continue to pray for Ann’s complete healing of sepsis and surgery. She is making progress, thank you God.

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, Francesca, Aaron, James, Viviane, Bertie, Edward, Catherine, James, Charlie, Pam, John, Elaine, Sheila, Adrianna, Sanjay, Raian, Stephanie, Emmanuel, Amelia, Shalini, Elizabeth, Bill, Aboli, Christopher, Peter, Philip, Ann, 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: And so I urge you: carry on an ongoing conversation with God about the daily stuff of life, a little like Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. For now, do not worry about “proper” praying, just talk to God. — Richard J. Foster
