Prayers needed please

Hello - I've been struggling with where and what I need to be doing with my life and how I can help others. I continue to pray and lean on the Lord - but I feel like I was drawn to this page for a reason. I'm 25 and struggle with depression. Some days are better than others but I constantly feel broken and lost. I have no true friends to turn to or to go do things with. I don't get to do much and where I live you are very limited on the things you can do. Ive been in a 5 year relationship and am unsure if he is who I need to be with. I feel completely lost on whether or not I should continue to go forward in this relationship or let go. I struggle to understand or help my mother who is divorced, out of a job and has become an alcoholic - she's a beautiful, smart, loving woman and I don't want to see her going down this evil path. I really just need your strong prayers right now for direction and faith. And prayers for my mother to draw closer to the Lord and turn her life around. Thank you all!

Thrift Store

I have a thrift store that I know God has given me.......now I need customers. Lots of them. We're now renting spots out to other people to sell their items and that helps with the overhead, but we need shoppers for them too. My heart is aching because I've put so much into this store and every week we seem to have fallen further behind financially. I know God gave me this store, I don't understand WHY he doesn't bring on the customers. I'm trying to trust but there are so many bills and needs. Right now I'm standing here shaking my head. My heart is aching. I'm trying to hear in case I've missed an instruction, I've listened to hour after hour of preaching tapes, I pray continually, and I work non stop. Now what? Please pray for me. Trying not to be discouraged in Peoria.

Jan needs prayer

Anonymous

01.04.15
Have a friend in her early 70s that needs prayer for her finances and health. Jan is on Social Security and low income (same and my husband and I). To make ends meet, Jan took in a roommate. The young woman is difficult to live with and has a judgemental attitude. Jan stays in her room, not to have to deal with her. That's no way to live! Jan has Addison's Disease which takes a toll on her body. And meds the Dr. gave are not helping either. An MRI is scheduled to look at her shoulder. She's been having severe pain in her shoulders and can't sleep. She may need surgery. The survival rate of this surgery, for a person in their 70s, is not good. Jan sometimes gets discouraged. She is a Believer/Christian and puts her faith and trust in God. She's divorced and knows only 1 person in town (besides me). That's her daughter. Her daughter is not supportive or loving at all. Please pray about their relationship. I have only known Jan a short time but she is a wonderful person. Very sweet and giving. She gave my husband and I a whole turkey she got from her church. she said I just can't eat that much. A blessing for us! She has (some) nursing background and gives me advice. She is going to teach me breathing exercises and some exercises I can do mostly sitting (I am disabled and have mobility issues). Pray for me too. I have lost 36 lb. on Weight Watchers. I am on my way but still have lots more to lose. Goal is to get a total knee, right knee, which is bone-to-bone!

I found a lump in my breast. I have a Mammogram Monday. Please pray it won't be cancer. About the size of a pea. I get lots of fatty tumors in my body - mostly in arms and legs. They can get quite large and sometimes hurt. This was is not painful. One time (this was in my 20s and I am in my 60s now) I had a lump just above the breast. Doctor removed it. It was not cancer. Don't know what they will find. Just trusting in the Lord. It's in His hands. Thanks.

Blessings for Daughter in 2015

Please lift in prayer my daughter who's been thru so much. Pray that God blesses her abundantly. Her husband cheated on her and left her, and she has had heart problems for the last 8 years. Everything that she's been thru she's used as a growing experience and to draw her closer to God. Pray that God puts a good Christian man in her life so she can have the type of marriage she so desires and family she longs for. Pray for God to speak to her that He's listening and that He will help her to find focus in her prayer life.

Employment

For the past eight months, I've struggled with unemployment. Through the process, I lost friends and a church community--something I still don't understand. After posting my struggle here on WCIC, I started receiving some interest and found new jobs I could apply to in the area. Three weeks ago, I asked for your prayers in helping me land a new job that would send me into a new career. I landed two interviews, both of which would send me in a new direction. Last week, one of those interviews resulted in a job offer. And I start a new job this Monday. Thank you for your prayers and support during this difficult time in my life.

1) Randy found a job, Praise the Lord. It pays $16/hr. We've been asking for prayer on this site for some time now. Randy been getting unemployment and food stamps. He's 58 so it's hard to find work at his age. Also, Randy wants to quit smoking so please lift him up that he'll succeed. He's struggling with it. He needs the supernatural power of Jesus to help him. 2) Pray for Susan, a Christian woman we met today while shopping at CostCo. We got to chatting with her and sure enjoyed meeting her. Susan is in her 50s. Her oldest son is autistic and she talked a lot about him. She had pics of her kids on her phone and showed us. Her son sounds sweet. He is 30 and able to live on his own (he lives just down the block from mom) and has a steady job. Susan also has a daughter and 2 sons. One son is in high school; the others are in their 20s. Susan is divorced. Susan cleans homes for a living. My husband and I plan to hire her to clean our home a couple of times a month, as money allows. She gave us her phone number so we can call her soon. Susan is such a sweet lady. We felt blessed to meet her! 3) I just want to praise God for blessings he sends. Thank you Lord. I love you Father.

My sister had her second child on Friday, the 26th of Dec. She came home on Saturday and was in the ER Monday night and Wednesday night with heart racing and high blood pressure. She has no history of any of these things. She is now admitted to the hospital for monitoring to try to figure it out.
