Baby on the way

Marina

Please pray we may bring our baby into a home and not a homeless shelter. After four years of loving marriage that had many financial difficulties, we finally felt stable enough to aspire to our ultimate joy: having a baby. It was a decision made with love. We both have health issues but felt they were under control and with one of us working full time we felt ready to take this next step in our journey. One month after we got pregnant it seemed like everything began falling apart. Our income got cut in half and then half again. Health issues worsened and got aggravated by a pregnancy that became very rough with it's own complications. Working barely part-time, we have struggled to survive. We are now in a position of fearing to lose our home as our landlord wishes to sell and we have nothing to put into a deposit or rent for a new place. It takes everything we have just to pay our current rent and we're behind on that as well. We've tried every resource available to us and don't know what to do now. Please pray for us to get back on our feet so we can bring this baby into a home and not a homeless shelter. We want our son to have a great start and with just a little help we can achieve that. Thank you and God Bless.

Pray for Terri

We got broadsided the other day, our truck was crunched bad! We exchanged information with the driver, and contacted both insurance companies. Our truck will be repaired. We know that bad things God works out for the good or there are reasons things happen. The adjuster came out and my husband was talking with him in our driveway. I stayed inside. I kept hearing my husband laugh so I went outside. Sam was a delight. A wonderful Christian man. Before he left, we 3 chatted and he was talking about how his dad had died June 24, 2010. He said he and his dad did everything together and were like 2 peas in a pod. He even built his house just 3 miles from his dad. Sam's dad got cancer and died very quickly. He was just 56. Sam said his mother had to sell her house and move in with them. Sam's mom is not doing very well, she is grieving a lot, even though 4 years have gone by. She still cries every day. Would you pray for her? Her name is Terri. Sam said a doctor gave her meds for depression, but she needs God's healing touch and the Peace that defies all understanding. I now believe that the wreck happened so we could meet Sam and pray for not only for his Mom, but for Sam. He loved his dad so much. He was glad he was able to be with the dad's side at the end. He was between jobs so it worked out perfect. He said thousands, not hundreds, attended his dad's funeral. Sam said his dad was brave; he only said that he hoped he had "touched someone's life". Sam said you did -- mine.

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!
