I am a single mother of two almost three kids come August 14, I used to live in the Esther house in Peoria and they helped me get my life together brut when I graduated the program I met a guy and thought I was in love and moved too fast I started following my path not gods so I ended up pregnant which was a blessing because he gave a wake up call through the news of being pregnant and I started listening to his will for me again. I am praying right now for a van the car I have won't hold all of my kids. I know if it is gods will I will find. A way but if I could help me pray I'd appreciate it thank u amen

Annette

Annette, 43, got her 2 girls taken away recently. The girls live with an adult older sister now. Annette sleeps at a shelter. She has no where to go, no relatives close by. She is not allowed to see her children. At the shelter, she must get there before 7 p.m. and leave first thing in the morning. It's not fancy but a roof over her head. She has a job at a grocery store but only gets 10 hours a week--not enough to live (she makes less than $10/hr). She has a car though, which is a blessing. Annette needs a full time job, such as office work or along those lines. Annette is divorced. Her Ex lives in another state. She wants to rent a place and try to get the girls back. She needs prayer about upcoming court dates and to have a sound mind. We don't know Annette extremely well but have suspicions that she may have mental stuff going on or a chemical imbalance of some kind. Just from the things she talks about. Of course, she denies having anything wrong with her. Doctors have been testing her. One said yes she has Mental problems so she asked for a 2nd opinion and that doctor said he found no diagnosis of mental problems. It's a mess. Annette won't take meds or I should say she is against it. She said last night when here visiting my husband and I that she will keep trusting God. So please pray for her.

Adoption

Anonymous

I have felt that I was meant to adopt for many years now. Last night, while listening to "In Your Hands" by Unspoken, I could once again hear God's voice to adopt a young child from overseas. I'm not married-- I'm a recent college graduate. However, I know now is the time I'm meant to adopt. It will be a long process, but I'm confident that I am meant to help a child right now. Prayers for support (and advice) would be incredibly appreciated. Thank you.

Angie's beloved dog Bella had to be put down. Angie, Jachen and their 3 kids are devastated. Please pray for them. Bella recently began having severe pain and it escalated from there. The Vet thought it was a ruptured disk in her back. She would not eat, yelped in pain all the time when touched, etc. 5 yrs. old. The family is devastated. Pets are family. It's rough.

Medical issues

i could really use the extra prayers. Monday I ended up in the ER with several cardiac problems. The most important was the elevated heart rate. Nurses & doctors worked quickly to lower that and make the breathing easier. I spent the next 26 hours in the ER waiting for a room. The hospital didn't have any emply beds. The staff continued to control my rate & pain as I was told I was getting a room Tiesday evening. Wednesday lead into Thursday with lots of tests and waiting. Amist the waiting came the episodes of elevated rate and pain. New and different meds along with more tests prove to fill the agenda. Any space is used for sleep. I ask for prayers of support, understanding and grace for my family first and secondly his touch on my body. I know this can all be conquered. Thank you!

Andrea, and her husband Byron and his brothers, sisters, mom and the rest of the family are grieving the loss of Leroy (Byron's dad). He passed away yesterday at home. Byron, dearly loved by all who knew him, had been suffering for the last 3 months with congestive heart failure. It was a traumatic end for them to see. Pray for Leroy's wife (Byron's mother) that she will get good rest, good sleep and have joyful dreams. Pray that God in His great mercy will supernaturally work a great comfort for them all. Thankfully, praise God, Leroy is home with the Lord! Thank you for praying!

Loneliness

Matt

this will be my first Valentines Day as a divorced dad. It is really hitting me hard. Even though my actions are what caused the divorce, I did not want it and I still love my ex. I k ow that God has forgiven me, but I cannot forgive myself. I lost everything that I cared about because of my sins. I am trying to find joy in my salvation but I keep coming up empty. This Holiday just reminds me of how much I lost and all the ways I failed as a husband and father. Please pray that I can feel Gods comfort and peace. Thank you

Friendships

Anonymous

I think a lot of people would look at me and say, "Yeah, she's a friend of mine." but I'm not the friend they make plans with if I don't ask them to. I'm not the friend they invite over on a whim. I'm not the friend they share personal things with. I have had lots of close friendships like this before, and I realize that sometimes there is an ebb and flow... but somehow as previous close friendships ebbed (moved, new jobs, etc) there was no influx of new. As if being a single mom wasn't lonely enough... this is lonelier... and the pull towards unhealthy friendships is high sometimes.

pray for Deana

Deana, mom of a 14 yr. old boy (plus a daughter in college) does not get child support from her Ex. She is struggling financially. She recently got let go from her office job and has not been able to find work. She is also having headaches and depression. Deana is a believer, but very discouraged. She told me in an email today, "Where is God in all this?" Would you please pray for her? My husband and I met Deana and her son when we offered some cookbooks for free on craigslist. She responded and said do you have other things and told a little about herself. We ended up giving her some furniture and household items. She and her son live in a cramped 1 bedroom apt. Her son sleeps in the dining room. Bookcases form a wall and Deana put up a curtain too. Deana is a wonderful mom. She does her best to make the apt. comfortable. She cooks good meals for her son. She's really trying. Also, Deana--divorced almost 5 years now--longs to meet someone. She had met a nice guy and at first he seemed perfect but they just did not click. She got a little sad about it. Pray also that she'll meet just the right man, a godly righteous and holy man, to be part of their life. Thanks.

adopted son is stuck in Congo

Our son, Mathieu, is 4 years old. He lives in Africa and we have legally adopted him. We have been trying to adopt for 5 years and it has been a difficult road for our family. Sadly, Mathieu's birth country has issued a suspension of exit letters for all adopted children. Mathieu will not be able to leave the country until the suspension is lifted and there is no end in sight. 1 - Pray for Mathieu's safety and health, and that the Lord will comfort his hurting heart. 2 - Pray for the leaders of his country to have compassion on the hundreds of legally adopted children who cannot join their families and are left feeling abandoned. Pray that these leaders will lift the suspension and that exit letters will once again resume for adopted children. 3 - Pray for Mathieu to obtain his US visa and that we will experience no more unnecessary delays in his adoption process. 4 - Pray for our family, that God will give us strength while we wait and that we will continue to trust the Lord and his timing. Thank you and bless you for taking the time to pray for us!

Truth in relationship

Anonymous

02.12.15
I know of someone who's in a relationship with a man who isn't being honest with her about his past. He's also not being honest with her in their relationship, texting another woman, and manipulating her social media account to block people he doesn't want her looking at. Pray that God puts she finds out the truth before she gets hurt or that someone in her life that knows tells her the truth.
