    I need prayer

    I really want to do the right things this year, and one of which is searching for employment. I'm also on the journey to lose weight and being a healthy person.

    I want to continue to be there for my mom and my siblings. Finally, my heart is aching to the point that I want to destroy all the junk that's cluttered inside, and make it more pure and flawless.

    I need prayer for my requests, my sisters. As I post this, I'm crying because I'm ready for a total spiritual makeover. Please, be praying for me and for my family. God Bless each and every one of you.

    The last thread we had was lost in the process of bringing it over to this thread, so we'll start a new one. Thanks Bev, for saving the orignal text of that thread. :)
    ___________________

    There are a lot of our sisters on the LHCF that are in need of prayer. God laid upon my heart the desire to pray for my LHCF sisters on this year. I meant to post this earlier, but I got sidetracked. If I can find just one prayer warrior who will pray with me in agreement for God to change these circumstances, in the name of Jesus, I assure you that we can see miracles happen. If I find more than one willing sister, we can send the devil running away screaming in agony! Oh, how he HATES when we come together in agreement for God's promises!

    We have sisters who are:
    - suffering from depression,
    -they need jobs
    -their finances are a mess
    -their husbands are acting up
    -their children are acting up
    -their bodies are afflicted with sickness and disease
    -some of our sisters cannot conceive and desparately need God to move
    -some of us will receive negative reports from the doctor on this year. Are we going to accept that it's over for us? Or will we take it to the Doctor of doctors for His final diagnosis?
    -many of our sisters need to be married, but the men are nowhere to be found. I'm believing God that this year, many of our LHCF sisters will meet their life partners. If you thought there was no hope, I've got news for ya! I've been praying on it, and I KNOW it will come to pass. :yay:
    -and the list of situations that need prayer goes on and on...

    We can pray for God to change these situations. Those who pray faithfully know the POWER of prayer. Towards the end of last year, I saw God work some mighty miracles, and I know that He wants to bless those who believe that He can do the things we ask of Him.

    So pray with me. All those who have prayer requests, just add on to this thread. I'll write down your request and take it to God in prayer. Those who are of a heart to do the same, please do! God will bless you for it. For as you raise others in prayer, God will handle your business for you too! That's how our Father works! He blesses us as we are a blessing to others around us.

    I'll be patiently waiting for a praise report so that I can sing and shout about the goodness of God. :)

    Re: I need prayer

    The desire you have to remove things that have kept you bound is God calling you to a higher level in your spiritual walk with HIM! PRAISE HIM!!

    Seek God diligently, and myself and the other prayer warriors here who want to pray will pray in agreement with you for God to meet you right where you need HIM. It's all going to be all right. Be blessed, sis. :rosebud:

    Everyone, pls pray for me. I find myself tangled in a huge ordeal that is truly demonic and I need it to be resolved quickly and in my favor. It involves some deceitful people who are not only lying against me, but are trying to confuse the situation w/a bunch of double talk and don't care one hill of beans about me AT ALL. I paid them for a service and they have yet to be accommodating about delivering on that service to my total satisfaction. So, this ordeal involves a large amt of money, too. All out of pocket.

    So pls pray for me.

    Sweetie, I will pray for you. God can open doors that are closed, and close doors that are open. Whatever you do, don't lose heart. Pray even more, asking our FATHER for exactly what you need. Be specific in your prayers, and be dilligent. I've seen God step into situations that looked like all hope was lost, and He worked a mighty miracle. I'll be on my knees praying for you. :rosebud:

    Re: I need prayer

    Please pray that I get over this flu sickness... I've been having chills/fever, sore throat, inflammed tonsils, coughing up phelgm, blowing my nose, and sinus pressure.

    Also pray for my sister who is in school while she is away from her son that she had this summer before she went off to school. She has been feeling depressed because she doesn't get to see her son much and her son's father is a dead beat dad.

    Also pray for my church family that it will grow and thrive.

    Lastly, pray for my ex-boyfriend. He's had a rough life losing both of his parents at a young age. Pray that he will be able to do the things he would like to do such as getting back into school, getting his car fixed, etc. Also pray for his family.

    Can someone please pray for me. At first I was really hesitant in writing this, but I just need some help to see me through. I'm becoming depressed over everything...I'm at the point where I'm constantly saying I hate my life. :nono: I just need prayer to get over this, because I know this will pass. I also would like to ask for prayer for me and my relationships with people. I just want them to be sincere and true. I'm tired of being tired. :ohwell: Thanks in advance for your prayers.

    Re: I need prayer

    Be healed, sister, In Jesus' name! I'm praying for your sister, that the spirit of depression not overtake her. Please tell her to take heart. She's in school, and her son is safe with family. This is temporary, and her sacrifice of going off to school and get an education will benefit her son tomorrow. I pray that the angels of the Lord will minister to her right where she is and lift up her spirit. I know a thing or two about dead beat dads since my children have a big one, but God is faithful to make a way for those children, and for that I PRAISE HIM!

    I will pray for spiritual, and financial increase for your church, that GOD would bring committed members to that ministry and cause it to grow and affect change in your area.

    Lastly, it's difficult enough to lose one parent when your young, but to lose both is an incredibly difficult thing. We'll pray against the spirit of depression in his life. We will pray that God takes him to a place of understanding that as difficult as things are for him right now, nothing is impossible with God. He needs to look up to the Father and focus on what the Lord wants for him. Great men of God have come out of some of the most desperate situations imaginable. Be blessed! :rosebud:

    It's done. God will make a special way for you, so that the work of the ministry not suffer while you work to help support your family. 1 John 5:4 says: "Whatever is born of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith."

    Ministry is a difficult thing, but God makes a special way for those He calls to that life. In faith we'll pray, and in faith we'll believe that God is going to manifest His glory mightily in your situation.

    Finally, I curse the spirit of barreness to it's very roots, and declare you healed and made whole, In Jesus' name. Lay hands on yourself and speak life over your womb. It's all done, and I pray in agreement with you that God will move on your behalf. Kingdom of God come, Will of God be done, in Jesus' name. Be blessed! :rosebud:

    Sis, your very brief post spoke to me, because it reminded me that I was bound in despair for years, to the point of suicide. I hated my life, I hated myself, and I couldn't understand the point of me living. I wasn't going to churchand I wasn't praying. I didn't see the point, because I was convinced that God wouldn't hear me, and if He could, He didn't care.

    My experience with depression is that the enemy has a habit of magnifying the areas of our life where we aren't successful, and he convinces us of what a complete and total failure we are. And don't be fooled. The devil starts off softly and slowly with his lies, then gradually gains momentum with his message to you.

    "You're not doing anything that matters to anyone. No-one is ever going to love you, look at you? You're such a mess that God can't use you. Even your kids don't need you. Face it, you were a mistake, and it's better to exit this world. This life just isn't worth living. Why do you bother? Don't even try to pray. You know that doesn't work. And the church can't help you."

    I spent years hearing these messages playing in my head. I got to the point that I couldn't be around people. I isolated myself from everyone. I was in tears constantly. The trick of the devil is to get you on your own, to talk to you and have no-one opposing the messages he puts in your mind, then he wins. But my mother was praying for me. Even when her words couldn't reach me, her prayers reached God, and He heard her cry for me.

    I'm going to do the same for you. You are not alone, and thank God that you posted this. The Lord wants you to know that you are not alone, and no matter what you see happening around you, hold on tighter to Him. In the midst of it all, He's there, and He will see you through.

    Read this thread about people coming into your life. I wish this was around when I was having a difficult time with relationships in my life. http://www.longhaircareforum.com/showthread.php?t=50389

    Finally, let me leave you with this passage. Be blessed, sweetie! :kiss:

    Jeremiah 29:11-13
    " For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD , "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."

    Hi ladies,

    I am so thankful for this for this forum!

    I have been "going to" church all of my life, but last year I found a wonderful, spirit-led church that I joined in October, and was baptized in November. My need for prayer revolves around the fact that being a babe in Christ, I don't feel that I know how to pray. Whenever I start praying, my mind wanders and I start thinking about all kinds of things that have nothing to do with the Lord - do I need to wash clothes?, what's going on at work?, etc. Everything except the Lord! Can some of you ladies maybe start a thread on prayer? Or a New Christian 101 thread? Any thing that will help me out and anybody else that may need help.

    I also need prayer that I will stay strong in my marriage, and be the virtuous woman of God that I want and need to be.

    Peace....

    Hey STN,

    What helps me is that I try to "talk" to God instead of a saying a "formal" prayer. Just like if I was talking to my earthly parents, except with more reverance. My thought wander sometimes too esp. when I'm reading the Bible.:( I"m still working on that through God's grace! You are in my prayers my sister!:kiss:

    Here's a website on how to pray that you might find useful:

    Thank you very much for everything that you said, and the link that you posted. The link definately made me cry. It just...spoke to me. It's kind of funny, me and my mother were talking yesterday and she was telling me that I need to make prayer a daily part of my life. She also told me God had given all these tools for us to use, but a lot of us aren't using them. I'm working on that.

    Prayer request for healing and restoration:

    I do believe that by His stripes I am healed. The bible says that one can chase 1000, but 2 can put 10000 demons to flight. Something happened Wed night at church and I am struggling to use my right hand..which I use for almost everything. I just need someone to agree as touching so that my healing will manifest in the flesh...My hand is already better...at least now I can open the door...etc. Just having trouble writing, typing, etc...

    thanks in advance to you all and our Lord and Savior!!! :)

    I pray in agreement with you, that the Lord would heal your right hand completely! We pray and believe that it's already done, in the name of Jesus!! Be blessed, sweetie! :rosebud:

    Hello everyone.


    I would like to ask for your prayers for my family. We really need to refinance our home and get a fixed interest rate. The circumstances are bleak right now because the property values in our area are going down for some reason and the appraisal is not coming up at enough. I ask for your prayers that God will make a way because I have seen Him make a way out of no way many times. Thanks for all of your support. All of you ladies continue to be in my prayers. :)

    I too stand in the need of prayer. I am currently unemployed and have been cut off of my insurance. I have a condition that warrants use of medication. While it would be good to get a job that offers excellent benefits, I come before you to ask for your touching and agreeing with me that the Lord heals my body completely so that medication is no longer needed. In addition, I would like your prayers that I find an excellent, fulfilling position before I graduate from school this coming May.

    We are going to pray on it, knowing and believing that God is able to do all things! Healing is yours, in Jesus' name. Lay hands on yourself and declare healing over your body. I'm in agreement with you! Be faithful and continue to seek God daily for all your needs, as I will pray for you also, and nothing we ask the father will be beyond your reach. He can do it! Be blessed! :rosebud:

    Above all, let's pray that the will of God be done. I'm lifting her up in prayer, and will ask our Father to step in on her behalf. I'll be praying along with you and your church members for total healing for her. I've been seeing God work some mighty miracles of late, so I know that if He chooses to do it, she'll live and have a powerful testimony. Let's pray it's in His will. Be blessed! :rosebud:
