In Our Thoughts and Prayers …

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.

We are asked to lift up our political leaders and healing in the nation.

Please pray for Debby as she recovers from surgery.

Bill had rotator cuff surgery. Prayers requested for his recuperation.

Marie, an accompanist at church, is scheduled for carpal tunnel surgery and will be sidelined for at least six weeks. Prayers requested.

Young Luna recently had yet another heart surgery and could use prayers.

David had to have surgery due to an infection and could use prayer.

Joy has been diagnosed with cancer and requests prayers.

Ron is in the hospital with a problem with his esophagus. Prayers are requested.

Lisa left work early not feeling well, and was in pain all day and night Tuesday. She went to the doctor for what she thought was a kidney infection, and ended up with an emergency surgery for a near ruptured appendix. She still has a swollen belly that kind of hurts, but much better.

Keep Andrew in your prayers as he continues to fight the fight. No one in our circle have heard from him in about a week. Last we heard, he was having a really hard time breathing, so prayers would be appreciated.

Tammy is asking for prayer. She had a phone interview for a new job.

Jonah, 10, has nerve pain in his arms, hands, and shoulders. Please pray for him.

Please pray for Debbie who is severely anorexic but currently refusing to get medical treatment.

Please pray for Mura who is seeking the Lord‘s blessing in her employment situation.

Rick is feeling despondent and like he cannot go on with his health and neurological challenges. Please pray for him.

Please pray for Tom, a veteran who has been struggling with multiple health and emotional issues.

Please pray for Debby who is struggling with multiple life threatening ailments, infirmities, and diseases.

Please pray for Mark as he is attempting to start a small business.

Please pray for Sarah who was diagnosed with cancer in September.

Please pray for L. She is a 22 year old young woman who recently relapsed.

Please pray for physical and emotional healing for Joyce.

Please pray for Marisol as she navigates a delicate pregnancy.

Please pray for Victoria who is struggling with anxiety and depression.

Please pray for Lisa who mixed witch hazel and rubbing alcohol together to clean with and it formed a gas that got into her sinuses and lungs.

Sharon is 46 and going through her first ever pregnancy. It’s still very early in the journey, but is listed as high risk, six weeks two days pregnant with triplets. Her HCG levels are not where her doctor wants them to be. She goes back Monday morning for more blood work and an  ultrasound. Please send prayers for healthy, full term triplet babies.

Please pray for Toni Rae who had been admitted to the hospital.

Philip is currently in the seventh day of detox for heroin and just called his family saying he feels the urge to leave treatment. Please pray for peace, sound mind, and the spirit of fear and addiction to leave him.

The inspiration for Heaven Shining Through

Please pray Sharon doesn’t have breast cancer. She is very scared.

Kindly pray for Shalini who has kidney failure and breathing problem with a high level of creatine.

Nova is asking for prayer to control his schizophrenia.

Pray for Blessie’s health. Surgery is scheduled Nov. 26.

Melvin, 96, fell, broke a hip, had surgery and went to rehab. He was readmitted with a seizure and low blood pressure. He could use some prayers.

Cindy is asking for prayers as she battles diabetes.

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, Bill, Marie, Luna, David, Joy, Ron, Lisa, Andrew, Tammy, Jonah, Debbie,  Mura, Rick, Tom, Debby, Mark, Sarah, L, Joyce, Marisol, Victoria, Lisa, Sharon, Shalini, Nova, Blessie, Melvin, Cindy, 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

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: True prayer is neither a mere mental exercise nor a vocal performance. It is far deeper than that. It is a spiritual transaction with the creator of heaven and earth. — Charles Spurgeon
