    Dear Lord, thank You for the life You have given Terese. I am asking in the name of Your precious son, Jesus Christ, that You restore her health. I am also asking that You keep the child in good health. I pray that this family will come to know You for who You are and that they will give You the glory You so rightly deserve, as they discover we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the power of our testimony, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen! @kanozas, thank you for being a faithful friend and asking for prayer on behalf of your loved ones.

    In agreement with Newgrowth15's prayer for complete healing and restoration of Terese's health. We pray for God to perfect everything concerning Terese, strengthen her body, protect her and her baby, and we ask that she be healed to share her testimony and to have more children. There is nothing that is too hard for you, oh God. Though the weapon has formed, Your Word states that it shall not prosper. Your Word will NEVER return to You void. For Your Glory and in Jesus' name we pray, Amen!

    I will say this, the prayer thread was started with Good in mind, to fervently pray and ask for prayer for others. God is not sleeping, and He cannot be mocked. Because no one is saying anything, doesn't mean no one isn't paying attention.

    First of all I'd like to say thank you for praying for my brother. He had a stroke and he's doing remarkably well. You guys stepped in and prayed. Thank you.

    Please pray that he continues to improve in his his recovery and that the Lord puts it in his heart to surrender to His will and deliver a testimony to His good works.

    Now, my turn.

    I have pretty much been in a bad marriage since the inception and everything has come to a head. We are in the process of separating then getting a divorce.

    As the separation has become more real, I have been second-guessing gong through this process, but yesterday he did something so disrespectful and it involved my kids and I'm over it.

    I just pray that the Lord gives me the strength to see this through, to be strong and gracious throughout the process.

    I pray that I will love again and be loved by someone who is worthy. I pray that I'm able to be with someone will cherish me and my son.

    I pray that my yearning for another child will be realized with a loving partner and soulmate.

    I pray that I will elevate myself and work on my flaws throughout this process and that I will lean on the Lord.

    I pray that my children are shielded from as much negativity as possible and that we remain united in our love for each other.

    *Do not quote, please*

    I simply cannot help him. Things are disastrous and he's lost just about everything. The only one who can help him is Christ. I cannot and will not take on his affairs and I don't care if people suspect wrong motives. He is in G-d's hands. I cannot help him. It's sad but all I am is a listening ear and even that is causing me a lot of stress. Please pray for this elderly man, that he makes his peace.

    Zora and Kanozas, we covered your prayer requests on the Thursday night prayer call tonight.

    Dear Zora, thank you for the praise report! We continue to lift your brother in prayer for complete healing. Everything shall be restored. We also pray for your marriage. We pray for healing and for your protection. God loves you and we pray that He fulfills your desire for a godly, loving, and fruitful marriage with more children. We are praying that God will give you discernment and wisdom and that you will have peace in the midst of the chaos. We speak peace to your storm in Jesus' name. We also pray over your children that the current problems in the marriage will not negatively impact their education, their relationship with either parent, relationships with friends, their health-mental, emotional, and physical, and that it won't effect their future marriages. We pray that God's will be done for you and your family. May He be your peace, your friend, your confidante, and the lover of your soul.

    We pray Lord that You remove any anxiety that our sister, Kanozas, experiences when dealing with this family member. We pray Lord God that You give her wisdom, discernment, and the peace of Your Holy Spirit. Lord God we ask that You divinely protect the family member referenced and that You will provide him with Your peace of mind.

    I have a family member who has caused a lot of division and strife over the years. I know this person's game well enough to know that when there is the slightest opportunity to cause division they will try to use it to suit their needs. Well, an opportunity has come up. This opportunity is a huge blessing to my family, but this person will try to use this to sew seeds of doubt and eventually division. I ask that you all pray with me that my children's hearts, minds and spirits are protected against the attacks of the enemy. Also that God will show me how to protect my children, my marriage and my household against these attacks. I'm praying for the person too. That they will find true peace.

    I have a friend who is ill. I don't know the details, but I know it is serious as she has been there for over a month. Please pray for her complete healing. Pray for her husband and parents. Pray that every need is met and that she and her husband are able to maintain their finances during this difficult time. Pray that I am able to witness to her during this time.

    God is in control. Nothing will happen that is not in His will for us. When we, who are His children are disobedient, sometimes chastisement is the best answer; the Lord chastens those whom He loves.

    I agree that we must pray without ceasing, but prayer without repentance is idolatry. I want to worship God in spirit and in truth just as He requires. So yes, pray for our nation--pray that we would become an obedient and repentant people who seek God's face and turn from our wicked ways so that He will hear from heaven and heal our land.

    Sister, thank you for your attention to my prayer. I'm not judging anyone or any nation as wicked in this request, I'm simply asking people to become active and pray. It is what is needed. G-d cares to save our souls as well as our lives. I ask for prayer for the world, not the United States, but the entire world. Thank you for understanding.

    Putting in a prayer request. Satan is attacking me the day before I start my new job. I was just walking from my car to the store and suddenly felt dizzy and started walking to the side! I've never experienced this sensation in my life! I hurried up and drove myself home because I wasn't trying to fall out. Now I'm laying in bed saving energy for tomorrow. Satan is so predictable yet he will never win. I was just fine yesterday. Please pray for me.

    Mrs.elle, I am in agreement with your prayers for discernment and wisdom over how to protect your children, marriage, and household-but since you are praying, you already know! Prayer and worship are very effective weapons! We thank God for this wonderful opportunity and we REFUSE to the let the enemy steal your joy-the joy that your Father has given to you in this season. We pray that every seed, every word, every intention that is contrary to the will of our God is dug up and dead and dry at its very root. We pray that no weapon formed against your family, marriage, and household shall prosper. We also pray that the family member causing strife and distraction will be convicted in his/her spirit and allow God to heal the hurt, the bitterness, and jealousy that is causing them to lash out. God is abundant and just because He blesses your family doesn't mean that He wont have enough blessings to go around to meet this person's need to. I pray that they will allow the joy of the Lord to be their strength and to change their hearts.

    We pray for your friend who has an illness. We ask that her body be completely healed and that her portion of perfect health is restored. We pray that her insurance company will cover every bill and we pray for every medical practitioner attending to her. We also pray for her family that they will have every financial need met and also that people will assist them in other ways (running errands, meal prep, cleaning the home, etc).

    Praise the Lord for your new job! We thank God that you will be a blessing to the new employer and that they will be a blessing to you. We thank God that you have favor with your managers, supervisors, coworkers, and colleagues. We ask God to bless the works of your hands so that you work with diligence and excellence. We pray that your body is healed and that there will be no more dizzy spells. Whatever caused the dizziness, we pray that it is rectified and divinely repaired in the name of Jesus.

    Hi Sister! I pray that God gives you grace for the pruning season that you have asked for. That He removes anyone or anything that will preclude you from completing His will for your life. I pray that God gives you the peace of His Holy Spirit during this time and always. I pray that God blesses you with a marriage made in heaven. A man that is after God's heart and after your heart as well! A man who will love you as Christ loved the church-with his whole heart, mind, soul, and strength.

    In agreement with your prayer for every person in this thread and on this forum truly seeking peace in their lives.

    @Sashaa08, what a blessing you have been and a true prayer warrior. Unfortunately, I have allowed the events in Charlottesville to distract me over these past few days and haven't visited this thread since then. Please pray for me. I don't want my love to grow cold and I know that God is in control, but I cannot help but wonder did the Germans pray before Hitler destroyed their country? I have been praying frequently and fervently for direction. I trust God and I know that He will do what is best for our country and the remnant He still has here that worship Him in spirit and in truth.

    @newgrowth15, we know that the sin of racism is alive and well. But God is still good and He always causes us to triumph through Christ Jesus. We pray that in all things, He gets glory. Nothing that has happened has taken God by surprise. And He purposed you to be alive in 2017 for such a time as this. He sent who He needed to intercede and stand in the gap during this time. He is purposeful. And God is just as faithful as He was before Charlottesville. And He is still just as powerful. I repeat, this did NOT take Him by surprise. We pray for our families, for the generations to come after us and we ask God to change hearts and to convict these men and women in their hearts that their beliefs are hateful, wrong, and are not-Christlike. D

    So do not fear, for I am with you, Newgrowth15; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

    Thank you for your prayers @Sashaa08, I really do appreciate that you took the time to "talk me off the ledge." There is a fine line between the flesh and the spirit and they are constantly at war with each other. I know this so well and yet, at times, I get caught up in the matters of the flesh; that is the time I know that I need to get deeper in God's word and spend even more quiet time with Him, so thank you for being the reminder I needed for such a time as this. May God bless you bountifully for being His willing vessel.

    Please pray for the young mother in Homestead, Miami, FL, who is in a mandated evacuation zone but will remain in her home with her young children. The baby is 4 months and her toddler is 15 months old. People on the news kept referring to her in that interview she did earlier and comparing what happened with Hurricane Andrew and how so many died in her area. She is making a terrible mistake. Pray that G-d changes her mind and gets her to safety before it's too late...as well as stubborn others holding up in the Keys. This is truly sad.

    Please pray for my tiny island nation of The Bahamas which is currently in Irma's path (expected to be a category 5 storm). As a nation we are still in recovery mode from Hurricane Mathew which occurred on Oct 6, 2016. That hurricane devastated all 700 islands and keys that makeup our archipelago. The praise report from last year is that even with a category 4 hurricane there was no lost of life.

    Also pray for those of us in S. Fla as well as we are also in Irma's path. Tomorrow is expected to be our last good weather day.

    Father God, we pray for protection for those who are in the path of Hurricane Irma. We ask that You divert the storm away from populated areas and into the sea. We pray for divine protection and no loss of life. We pray that when the enemy comes in like a flood, that You our God, our Protector, will raise up a standard against him. We ask that though the enemy come in one direction that he flees in seven different ways. Protect the families, protect the children; protect those who cannot evacuate and traveling grace for those who are evacuating the area that they will have gas, that they will find lodging, and that they will have resources and support. I pray for those not evacuating that they have power, food, and that they will have everything they need in their homes. In Jesus' name, amen.

    Asking for prayer for myself. I have been strong for so long and I have nothing left. Sometimes I feel like I will lose my mind. Each day I pray and meditate and write in my journal and I'm hit with 5 more things that try to tear me down. I don't even see any way out. Lord help me.

    @crlsweetie912, now God can move. You have done all that you can and have worn yourself out trying. God has been waiting patiently for you to come to the end of yourself so that He can step in and do what He wanted before you went through all of whatever you went through. Cast ALL of your cares on Him for He cares for you.

    Meditate on Psalm 27:14 -- wait on The Lord. I pray that as you spend this time waiting on The Lord, He will answer your prayers and grant you your requests in the name of His most precious Son, Jesus Christ.

    P.S. I added a thread today titled "Do You Know Him." It's less than 5 minutes, but it will bless you abundantly.

    I lost a dear friend recently. I know that I did what I could during her time of need, or I'd like to think that I did. I have a wide range of emotions. I feel guilty for being alive and that most things in my life are going ok. I feel guilty for being healthy. The sun was shining today and my house is clean going in to the weekend, but I feel guilty for enjoying those things. Then I get mad at myself for not enjoying the little things because my life could be far worse. I'm having trouble sleeping. I'm fine during the day, but then night comes I feel sad, heavy, anxious and scared. I wonder if I prayed enough. The last time I saw her she pleaded with me to keep praying. I wonder if she was able to go in peace. So many thoughts, no real answers. I know it will get better in time. I just have moments when it's difficult for me to process. She didn't want to die.

    The scriptures say that Satan is the accuser of the brethren. He stands before God and accuses us day and night. Don't give place to the devil. If you have repented of your sins and accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you are free. There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.

    It is perfectly normal to mourn the loss of your dear friend and to go through the stages of grief. We have a Comforter who comforts us when we are in need, so that we will be able to comfort others in their time of need. I extend to you my cyber - shoulder to cry on as I pray for you and the family of your dear friend as you all journey through this sorrowful time.

    May God keep you in His care.
