Folded Hands

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.

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.

Janel tripped at the top of her set of five steps and landed on her tailbone on the way down. Apparently she passed out as she got up. She has a huge bruise on her lower back and tailbone makes it very uncomfortable to sit. Her blood pressure is still a little low, but she insists it is nothing too concerning. I think we should keep her in our prayers.

Rebecca asked for prayers for her family.

Please pray for Richard as he attempts to stay off drugs and give his life completely to the Lord.

Please pray for Drasko. The Lord will know the details.

Please pray for E who is in need of major hurdles and obstacles to be removed in order for her to receive proper treatment for a debilitating health condition.

Please keep praying for Ruth who has a myriad of health issues and complications. The kidney she was to receive was not suitable for transplant. This is a very hard time for her and the family. Please pray for peace.

Pray for Chris’ anger to be soothed and to conquer his demons.

After 12 years, Ann must find a new.job … the one she has is beyond toxic and it has been for years.  Please pray the new job she is going to is not blocked by the current job. Pray for a smooth transition, peace, longevity, and favor on the new.

Pray for Kathleen’s  lungs to get healthy and a loss of weight.

Please pray for Doron who suffers from daily depression and anxiety and refuses to seek help. He does take medication daily.

Kindly pray for Shalini. She has kidney failure and breathing problem and has become very weak. She has taken blood tests, please pray for her reports to be normal.

Prayer asked for Gyanville who has been mentally ill for a year and a half. He needs healing to recover back to normal and is only 19 years old.

Carol is not feeling well and could use some uplifting in prayer.

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.

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, Rebecca, Richard, Drasko, Preston, Elizabeth, Emily, Joe, Jennifer, Dominick, Sarah, Honey, S, Mike’s grandson, Joyce, Illyria, Gunny, Amy, Eric, David, Brian, Charlee, E, Ruth, Chris, Ann, Kathleen, Doron, Shalini, Gyanville, Carol, Andrew, 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: I do believe we’re all connected. I do believe in positive energy. I do believe in the power of prayer. I do believe in putting good out into the world. And I believe in taking care of each other. – Harvey Fierstein
