    I ask for prayer for the intercessory ministry at my church. I feel like we are broken and I don’t know my part in fix it other than prayer.

    I also asked for prayers for myself. I feel like I am not enough and that there is nothing that I can do. I am praying that the Father breaks every chain that binds me and reveals to me the things that I must work on.

    I also don’t know who to deal with my younger brothers (over the age of 25 each). Two are moving into my home. How do I help them to be strong and how do I encourage them. We did not have good male figures growing up, so I don’t know what healthy male leadership looks like.

    @TrueSugar ..

    I saw your prayer request from my phone on Friday night and I began to pray for the right response.

    Jesus said, "Take my yoke upon you, for my yoke is easy..."

    Jesus also said, "Come unto me and I will give you rest."

    True Sugar, it is time for you to rest. Rest, dear one and allow God to do what He has always planned to do with your Church and your brothers. You have taken too much upon yourself which is not all yours to bear.

    God is saying, "Give it to Me...for it is God's burden to bear, not yours. God will not fail your Church, nor will He fail your brothers, nor will God fail you.

    Let God prove to you who He is...He is one who never fails. God loves you and He is right there to perfect all that and who concerns you.

    God bless you, Dear One. In Jesus' Name, Amen

    @TrueSugar, prayer is the absolute best thing you can do. However, make certain it is a two way conversation. Be sure to listen and obey The Lord as He speaks to you through His word. Spend time with Him everyday and allow Him to order your steps.

    The fact that you are willing to allow two grown men to come and live in your home shows you have a very big heart. Lay the ground rules up front for how and what you expect and will accept from your brothers. Stick to your guns and they will respect you. Make certain they understand the consequences of breaking the rules while they are living in your home. Be firm and don't allow them to manipulate you emotionally.

    Just know that you have people who are praying for you and your family.

    @Shimmie, once again, you have allowed yourself to be used by God to help someone else. You are His daughter and the apple of His eye. It rejoices my heart to know that you have found favor with The Lord.

    Keep sharing God's truth in love and you can never go wrong.

    Although I have never met you, I love you with the love of Jesus Christ. Keep the faith my dear sister in The Lord.

    Hi ladies, right now I am only a few weeks away from my first law school exam period.
    I am also applying for my school's business school program in order to enter the 3-year JD/MBA program next year.
    On December 1, I will be applying for 60-70 very competitive 1L summer associateships at law firms.

    I have a lot to pray about and ask for, but I know that my purpose lies here, in law school, and that the Lord has put me here and will guide me through. I just ask that you all would lift me in prayer and allow for me to be embraced, guided and shepherded in and by the Lord, that I might act in a way that glorifies Him in every opportunity He so graciously chooses to give me.

    I ask that all jealousy, stress, anxiety, envy and other negative emotions and forces might be kept far from me, as well.

    Thank you all so much in advance, and I will be lifting all of you up in prayer as well. @TrueSugar @kanozas @newgrowth15 @Elnahna @Shimmie @movingforward

    I need to pray, but I cannot seem to find the words right now. My mom's spirit won the battle over her flesh and she is rejoicing with the Lord. I am happy for her, yet I am sad.

    @newgrowth15, That's ok. Just express it as best you can. That could be humming , singing ,moaning, being still /quiet etc.. God knows you heart and the Holy Spirit will make it clear.

    Praying with you, Dear Sister...

    In Love and Strength...you are empowered by God beyond this challenge. You are....empowered by His Love and His Strength. You do not have to rely upon your strength, not in this battle nor any other. For God has said, "I will comfort you, I will be with you, I will lift you up and uphold you and will never leave you nor forsake you. I will be with you, always.

    @newgrowth15 ... You are not alone....

    In Jesus' Name, Amen.

    I love Precious Sister... Just be still and know that God is still God who loves you far more than words ever uttered.

    Jesus... Knows.

    Could you pray for me please? I need it right now. I'm not at peace and I'm not settled. I feel without direction and purpose. I've been praying but I could do with a bit more.

    Praying for you and your family at this time of loss. It is understandable to be sad and not be at a loss of words. Your mother raised a brilliant daughter, who is a prayer warrior in her own right, so I know that she was a blessing to you and you were a blessing to her in so many ways. You cared for her and loved her and that she knew.

    God created you and He knows you. Even when you have no words to speak, He understands exactly where you are and what your spirit and heart are saying.

    God's Love from Psalm 23..."He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His namesake".

    God is lovingly taking you by the hand...leading and guiding you through the dark places...providing for your every need. Just give Him Glory, for He is so worthy. Yes, He is.

    Please lift my sister's mother in law up in prayer. She has been diagnosed with Stage IV gallbladder cancer. The doctors are saying there is nothing they can do. But we know that God is able!

    My sisters I need prayer, the devil is working overtime and trying me in my workplace I'm doing everything above and beyond but still getting negative results, (no physical explanation for this) I'm putting this in Gods hands. Praise Jesus! With Him all things are possible -Matt 19:26.
    Thanks ladies

    Please keep these verses in mind when you pray.

    Isaiah 54:17

    No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord.

    Deuteronomy 20:4

    For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.

    1 Chronicles 29:11-15

    11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. 12 Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength.

    13 “O our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name! 14 But who am I, and who are my people, that we could give anything to you? Everything we have has come from you, and we give you only what you first gave us! 15 We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.

    Dearest @Lucia :love2:

    Psalm 91...

    You are protected under the shadow and the wings of God, your Father. You shall not fear the arrows that fly by day, nor the evil that passes by night.

    For though a thousand may fall by thy side, ten thousand by thy right hand, no harm shall come nigh thee. For and because you have made the Lord, your God, thy habitation, when you call upon Him, He will answer and He will deliver you and show you His loving and strong salvation.

    Fear not...fret not...for God is with you...always and forever. In the Holy Name of Jesus...Amen...forever, Amen.

    You do have a man in the home Jesus make him For all of you; a father, an uncle a big brother the head of the household until one of your brothers can take that role on or you get married to a God fearing man.
    The hierarchy is God Jesus, Holy Spirit then Man, then Woman, then children.
    Since there's no real man in the picture for now, Until you have a husband Jesus is the role model for your brothers, the one to lean on in times of trial and trouble. Even when you're sifting through the riff raft and selecting a man of God to be your husband ask Jesus for his guidance and permission as in is this the "best" man you've sent for me or not?
    I know we humans are not perfect but if you make Jesus the head of your house you cannot fail.
    Jackie Francois Angel said it best, that Jesus sent her the "best" man to be her husband.

    I'm asking for prayers, life has been hitting me hard these past couple of weeks. First I was worried about a mole on my Dad's back, it's nothing cancerous thank God. He is going to a dermatologist to have it looked at. Then on my way home from work one night I was rear ended by another car while sitting at a red light. I am ok it just that my back bumper is cracked. I don't know how it is going to get fixed. And yesterday I go to my car and find that my heater and A/C are not working. All this while trying to look for an apartment and trying to get on my feet. On top of that I feel like significant other is not being there for me in a way I feel he should. At this point I just feel like giving up on life, throwing in the towel. Nothing is going right, and I am ready to remove some people from my life. I just feel all alone.

    The "Son" (our Lord Jesus) always rises when all else seems to fall. Don't throw in the towel, just toss it in the washer, give life another try. Don't give up on God who loves you and hears your call. When God hears ,
    He answers...always.
