hurts, forgiveness and granddaughter coming back

Deb

Please pray that God would work through the terrible situation our family is going through with our daughter and her problem with addiction and betrayal and with taking our granddaughter away. Pray that He would send someone to intervene with her addictions and spiritually. And that God would find a way to bring our granddaughter back home. And that he would heal the hurts and help us forgive and that through this we could help others but mostly that Addy would be able to be brought home and soon. Our hearts are heavy and we miss her so much and we wait upon God because He is the only one who can do anything now. I have faith but this is challenging me in a way that I have never been challenged before and I don't know how much longer I can hang on and I don't know how to pray anymore or what His will is. We didn't see this situation coming and it has taken the wind out of our sails and taken a lot of our attention and time. Is this really where God wants us? Oh God please go before us in this and show us how to help Melissa and please show Chris that Addy needs to be back in her home here and please help DCFS sort this out soon. Please don't leave us God, we need you more than ever.

I have recently been diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer that has spread. It is even in my lungs. I start chemotherapy tomorrow . Please pray that I stay strong enough through treatments to continue working. More than that please pray for my adult daughters. They are both unbelievers. Pray they see Jesus in me throughout this whole ordeal. I want to glorify Him through this! I know He does have a plan for my life!

Divorce

Matt

07.02.14
Please pray for guidance on whether I should let my marriage go or pray as a "stander" for my marriage. I have read many conflicting bible studies all using scripture to back up their arguments. I have broken our marriage vows and am truly repentant and learning to lean on God instead of myself. She has already filed for divorce. Please pray that God give me an unmistakable sign about whether I should pray to get over her and let her move on or keep praying that she will take me back and restore our marriage.

Hyrum needs prayer about his back. 2 back surgeries later he still has pain and stiffness. He's in his mid-30's. His job involves hard physical labor which doesn't help. Also, pray that he'll get a raise or a better paying job. Hyrum is engaged. Pray for he and his fiancee Jenna as they make plans. She's a widow with 2 boys under age of 12. He is divorced with a 5 yr. old daughter. The daughter lives in another state, so that is sad. I don't think he gets to see her very often. Also, Hyrum took a week off work to visit his parents in Utah. Please pray for traveling mercies as he drives back home. Also, continue to pray for Bryn's adult son Ian. He slipped and split his toe open real bad (big toe) and broke it. He should have gone to Urgent Care but didn't. Now the toe may be infected. He is on vacation, traveling by car across the U.S. with his family. Prayer for not only his toe but traveling mercies for he and his family would be good. Thank you. ~ A Pastor's Wife

1. Pray for police officer Dustin Goudschaal, 32, in satisfactory and stable condition at a hospital. He was shot 7 times when making a traffic stop. 2. Pray about a non-injury car accident that happened to us June 30. Our pickup got hit and crunched very bad on the driver's side. A woman was backing out of a driveway and did not see us. She hit our truck just behind the cab. Thank God it did not hit the gas tank (on that side) or cave in the door...my husband would have been hurt really bad. Just pray her insurance will take care of it. We have been talking with them on the phone today. It looks like $3,000 - $4,000 damage but an adjuster will look at it. I pray the truck is not totaled. Our truck is a 2001 Dodge Ram. Ironically, her Honda Accord was unscathed. Tough little car! 3- Continue to pray for Randy, for him not to drink, smoke and party. He's working full time now, which is an answer to prayer, but he has no benefits. He needs a benefits package. 4 - We want to give a shout of praise for all the blessings God sends. Praise the Lord. God, you are awesome! Oh Lord, You are with us through good times and bad times. You will turn something bad into something good. Amen! Because we Trust in You, Father.

I am trying to quit one anxiety medication that I have been on for many years. This process of changing to another medication has been really difficult. Please pray for wisdom for the doctor and relief from symptoms of the anxiety for me. Thanks so much.

forgiveness

Anonymous

I have realized that I carry a lot of resentment and grudges in my heart. They weigh me down and bring me nothing but stress. A couple months ago the stress reached new levels, and I acted out on my feelings and took it upon myself to relieve the stress. I then covered my action with a lie. This act was terribly sinful, and I'm having a hard time believing I can be forgiven for it and for lying about it. I also know that Jesus says that to be forgiven by God, we must forgive others. I don't know how to release my pain or if I can receive God's healing. I need prayer to help me let go of my resentment and to be delivered from my bitterness so that God's love can flow through me to others.

Carol

Please pray for the pain to ease and that a miracle solution can be found to help her. She is a child of God. Also our granddaughter is heading in a wrong direction and she needs rescued by our God.
