Nervous

Hayley

I have just graduated from the occupational therapy assistant program and am taking my national boards exam in a few days. I know that I am doing everything that I can to prepare for this test, but as the days get closer I am getting more nervous! I just wanted to ask for some extra prayers to help me do the best that I can on this exam. I know that it's in Gods hands and that He will be sitting right there beside me when I take the exam! So I just pray that I have all the confidence and knowledge I need on test day! Thanks everyone.

Revelation, Direction, and Faith for Children

Nathan Howard

My wife's health is deteriorating. She has autoimmune disorders and chronic dibilitating pain. She is hardly able walk due to the extreme pain and is bedridden 95% of the day. There's so much more to all of this and there are a lot of things to pray for around her and our family (as you might imagine), however the reason I am asking for prayer specifically is this... my children's faith (they are 6 and 8). Almost every night, relentlessly, each child has prayed with me for God to "heal mommy". They have prayed with such innocence and honesty. But lately my daughter has begun to question and doubt. She is losing her interest to pray for mommy and losing her interest to pray at all. Recently she told me that she thinks God/Jesus/Faith is all a big trick or joke that people are playing on us. There are certain things that don't make sense to her, but primarily it has been coming down to this... that though she has been praying every night for mommy, nothing is getting better, nothing is changing, things are only getting worse. I know what she is thinking, (and to be honest I have thought the same things)... why pray if the prayers aren't being answered. They need, we need, God revealed to us. We need direction, healing, faith, grace, love, happiness, strength, and so much more. These are trying times. Thank you.

Prayers for a father

My ex-husband is having some problems and needs prayers please. He is the father of my two children. They are only teens themselves and are at a loss of how to help. He had been disabled from a debilitating illness that the doctors can't seem to pinpoint or treat. The only thing that they can offer him is pain medicine which is taking quite a toll on his body. He is in pain constantly and is sick and vomiting very frequently. He is on a limited income and struggling to pay his bills. Please pray for his health, finances, emotional state and all of his other needs as only God know them all. Thank you!

House Repairs

As a single mom I struggle to make ends meet, but God has provided me with a good job and most months I am able to pay everything as needed. Unfortunately it does not leave me with extra to take care of the repairs that my house desperately needs. Please pray that God will guide me in the direction that He wants me to take regarding these repairs and that I will hear God when He guides me.

Breaking of negative/critical spirit in marriage

Anonymous

My husband and I have been married 33 yrs. (by the grace of God). As often is the case, we have opposite temperaments. I am by nature an optimist and he a pessimist (confirmed by all who know him). Since we are both Christians, I felt we could overcome and keep each other in balance...but instead our marriage has spiraled down into negative and critical battles. At times, my husband tries to affirm me and it seems hopeful, but most often I am the target of negative and critical words. As well as his co-workers and life in general. His father was similar, and now our sons. I have prayed many years for God to intervene...and have asked Him to change me if I am the problem. I am worn out. Please pray. I truly need to see a permanent breaking of this stronghold. And that the cycle would not continue with our sons. Thank you.

Missions

My fiance is in Mexico on a missions trip, him and the team have been there since June 6th. They return to Chicago next week. So besides safe travels for them, I am asking for prayer for the relationships they have made, specifically for Mark and Cesar. These two young men are atheists but my fiance, Trevor has been blessed to have some very good spiritual dialogue with them. Pray that the Holy Spirit would penetrate deep into their hearts and that they would continue to seek truth long after the team leaves. Pray that Trevor would have boldness to share the Gospel with them this week, and really know how to love them well in these final days with the love of Christ. May the Lord move mightily in the city of Guadalajara. Thank you for your prayers.

Thrift Store

HELP! Please pray. I am physically tired and need a day off. Because of the yard sale season, sales have been VERY low at the store. This means I have to do most of the work myself. Please pray for increased sales, bills paid, great workers, and a day off for me! I know God blessed me with this building and all is great. I thank everyone for helping through prayer. Prayer IS the most important help.

House Sale and best location for our family.

Misty

07.14.14
We have had our house for sale for just over 8 months, with no offers. Our family has relocated to a different state now... so we are paying rent and a mortgage. We thought that this was the right move for our growing family, but now we are unsure if this is were God wants us. We ask for prayers that our house sell soon and if that is not God's plan let his plan be know to us. Give us wisdom to know God's will for our family... whether it be sell our house or not or the possibility of moving again. Thanks.

A new creation

Michael

As a father, I sit in anticipation, to see yet another of Gods creations. My 20 year old daughter, strong and confident, also takes steps and awaits the birth of her first child. She is in great health and no concerns for baby Leo. God I pray that you give fully your love and protection to all. You guide with easy the coming of your creation. Let's us be thankful and blessed. Today I am reminded of all you provide. 1 Corinthians 13:13 Let us love and unite this family to provide strength from you. God keep her well, and give all you provide to this new legacy. We all love Taylor and baby Leo. Proud grandpa!
