Our Father Who Art in Heaven …

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 continue to 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.

LaVerne thanks everyone for their prayers. The good news is all major organs look great! The not so good news is there are some new spots on my bones – ribs and illiac. The spots on the ribs are small, but still evident cancer is still with her and trying to take over. The other spot on my illiac bone in lower back area is bigger and may be what is causing some pain issues. Next step is to see a radiologist. As far as treatment, she was encouraged to be offered just the monthly hormone blocker shots again without the chemo pill, which lowers her immunity so badly. A re-scan is scheduled in three months. She believes prayer and God’s guidance in naturopathic helps and vows to press on and praise!

Keep Andrew in your prayers as he continues to fight the fight. He contacted me the other day. Things continue to deteriorate. Prayers. Prayers. Prayers.

Eileen has been in the hospital. She has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and acute (and painful) arthritis, and has lost quite a bit of weight. Prayers requested.

Please pray for Nate who is 17 and appears to have a punctured lung and broken ribs plus other complications.

Please pray for Tab. She is reportedly struggling with her health.

Zibah asks for healing prayers after being hit by a car while bicycling to his job. He has tissue and muscle damage to his shoulder.

Please pray for Elizabeth who is battling a diabetes 2 and high cholesterol diagnosis.

Stephanie has a job interview Oct. 2 and is asking prayers it goes well.

Please pray for Regina who thinks she has a UTI or some other kind of infection. She does not feel well.

Please pray for Mercy who has a severe cough and cold. Skin on her feet have started to peel off as well.

Please pray Viviane’s neuropathy does not get any worse.

Andrea has diabetes and can’t stop vomiting, resulting in diabetic ketoacidosis. The doctors think she may also have gastroparesis. Please pray she doesn’t have gastroparesis and will not need a pacemaker.

Brenda is experiencing a blood issue and requests prayers.

Sarakutty has a heart blockage. Please pray for her.

Shalini has kidney failure, breathing problems, high blood pressure, and her creatine level is increasing every day. She has also lost quite a bit of weight. Prayers requested.

Please pray for the speedy healing of the eyes for Olina. Her retina has shrunk and detached. As such, she cannot see.

Esther is asking for prayers for a nodule on her thyroid to dissolve.

Jose is battling cancer and is requesting prayers.

Please pray for a benign lymph node on Arlin’s breast, negative result for her pap smear, and transvaginal ultrasound healing for her thickened endometrial lining.

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

Please continue to pray for Ann’s full recovery from sepsis and surgery.

Yvonne has had terrible bone issues and her health is declining. Prayers requested.

Shannon’s biopsy is scheduled Tuesday. Prayers requested.

Prayer requested for Jacob and his family for medical and family issues.

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 LaVerne, Andrew, Eileen, Nate, Tab, Zibah, Elizabeth, Stephanie, Regina, Mercy, Viviane, Andrea, Brenda, Sarakutty, Shalini, Olena, Esther, Jose, Arlin, Peter, Ann, Yvonne, Shannon, Jacob, 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: Prayer, then, is a matter of our participating in the life of Jesus Christ. – Michael Casey
