Ask in Faith …

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.

Keep Eddie and family in your prayers. He has Parkinson’s and is currently in rehab.

Please pray for Debby as she recovers from surgery.

Rick is going in for a bone marrow transplant and could use prayer.

Keep Andrew in your prayers as he continues to fight the fight. He’s having a really hard time breathing, so prayers would be appreciated.

Please pray for Marsha who is having so much dizziness and blurred vision she can hardly function. Doctors say it is a bad reaction to a medication she had to take for a procedure.

Pray for healing for Hilda who has been having pain lately around her back. She is also feeling fatigued, has  asthma, and her kidneys are not functioning properly.

Please pray for the healing of Esther, 19, whose family has rejected her because she has epilepsy.

She’s emotionally broken, and at times contemplates taking her own life.

The doctors have found the cancer has come back for Riley, but our God is greater than any cancer! This precious child and family need our prayers!

Please pray for Grace who is being treated at the emergency room. All the family knows is she needs a little oxygen right now.

Please pray for Jasy, 14, who suddenly went into kidney failure two days ago. Doctors are trying to figure out why this happened. Biopsies reveal her kidneys are 90% damaged, and she will likely need a transplant.

Asking prayer for Teddy who had infection in his blood and is still not completely healed.

Asking prayer for Cookie who had bypass heart surgery while still recovering from a knee replacement.

Prayers requested for Jesse who is in the hospital in critical condition. He has a disease caused by breathing in mold contaminated by bat or bird droppings, apparently triggered while working on his roof repairing a leak. He also has sepsis which is affecting the kidney that was a transplant four years ago.

Callie is asking for prayer. After years of testing and much tribulation, she is finally pregnant with twins. Please pray those little babies are both there and healthy. A fetal DNA test was inconclusive, probably because it was taken too early. She has a doctor’s appointment Tuesday.

Please pray for Barbara. She is extremely fatigued and dehydrated, with bone pain, emotionally drained. I need energy and stamina back quickly! My last chemo is causing great havoc in my body and she need to be out of bed. She has a funeral to attend Monday and, God willing, visit her grandchildren out of town Wednesday.

Asking for prayers for Isaac, born Friday with complications. He couldn’t breathe for 24 minutes. Tests are being done to see if there is brain damage. Prayers for his mother, daddy, and two big sisters as they go through this very difficult waiting period.

Please pray for Mike who had a heart attack this morning

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 Eddie, Debby, Rick, Butch, Vivian, Millie, Dennis, Bill, Marie, Luna, Sue, Larry, Margie, John, Andrew, Helen, Sheila, Y, Robert, Joyce, Michael, Kyle, Ava, E, Marsha, Hilda, Esther, Riley, Grace, Jasy, Teddy, Cookie, Jesse, Callie, Barbara, Isaac, Edi, Joy, Joy, Nova, Mike, 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: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:44
