Say a Little Prayer …

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.

Prayers requested for Debby as she recovers from surgery.

Please keep Mark in your thoughts and prayers. He underwent brain tumor surgery this week. He is doing well post-op, but has a tough road ahead.

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.

Prayers requested for Mona who has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer of the liver. She is on a new chemo schedule and has been given about a year. She was expected to return home from the hospital today or Sunday. Please pray for her and husband Frank.

Prayers needed for J for a mental health issue and for his family members.

Please pray for Gunny who is having a multitude of health problems.

Please pray for Dawn who is struggling with several painful and difficult health challenges.

T has a list of prayer requests … please pray for him. The Lord will know the details.

Please pray for eight year old Maddie who was diagnosed with leukemia.

Please pray for Danny who has MS and is scheduled for back surgery due to a fall.

Please continue to pray for Ali, a young woman who is struggling with some health issues and reaching out for prayer.

Please pray for Frank who lost his mother and his job within two weeks.

Savannah and her daughter lost their new home in an apartment fire. They moved in just less than one month ago. Savannah was just able to save her two year old daughter and herself, but unfortunately was not able to save her cat, three kittens, and two geckos along with all of her and her daughter’s personal belongings. Not only did she just put down her deposit and rent money, she now needs to replace her ID and wallet, clothing, food, toys, and furnishings. She has lost all of her sentimental items and photographs as well. Prayers during these trying times are requested.

Julia is seeking prayer for a workplace situation.

Please pray for Fletcher who is in critical condition with several health issues.

Please pray for Houma who is struggling with depression and multiple other factors making life very difficult.

Please pray for Albert who is struggling with health issues.

Please pray for Gina who has ovarian cancer.

Please pray for Ally. The Lord will know the details. Situation is critical.

Please pray for Amir’s health.

Please pray for Carmella who had a spell and fell on the concrete suffering a deep laceration that needed stitches. Doctors thought they might be able to reconstruct her jaw but where it broke apparently won’t allow that. Her dentures were also destroyed in the fall. She also needs a stimulator replacement – it’s down to 18% — but it still has not been approved.

Please pray for Michael who is critical in the hospital ICU.

Please pray for Tawne who will have surgery Oct. 21 for cancer of the uterus. Pray the cancer is contained.

Please pray for Devorah. Something is going on with her belly which is swelling by the day.

Please say a prayer for Florence who has pain in her arms and hands and is having stomach pains. She is in hospice.

Please pray for Diane to be completely healed of pancreatic and liver cancer.

Prayers requested for Sean to be completely healed of lung and bowel cancer. He had a colostomy yesterday – at 13.

Bill is recovering from a broken foot and could use prayer.

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 Debby, Mark, Andrew, Mona, J, Gunny, Dawn, T, Maddie, Danny, Ali, Frank, Savannah, Julie, Fletcher, Houma, Albert, Gina, Ally, Amir, Carmella, Michael, Tawne, Devorah, Florence, Diane, Sean, Bill, 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: Work as if everything depends on you. Pray as if everything depends on God.– St. Ignatius Loyola
