    please remember in prayer…..

    BrianD – I lost my sister, and now a friend of the family (my mom)Sherrie has died of cancer. Please pray

    Captain Kevin – Appreciate prayer. I’ve been in a Fibro/fatigue/depressed funk all week.
    Also, I’m teaching piano and voice at a local studio, and need many more students to make things work.

    Brian – My sister died unexpectedly early last Thursday morning. We’re having a memorial service tomorrow. I talked about her a little bit on the Open Blogging thread. I’m rethinking a lot of things now. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers, especially my brother and my mom — no parent should ever outlive their kids.

    Em – I pray for the neighbor (all their yard is gone), but as i pray i have to ask God’s forgiveness as there is a little “serves you right” in the back of my mind
    Praying for them, better than i do, would be appreciated. They are church goers, but need a firmer grip on the Faith – IMV.

    S. Barnard – healing for my sister as she recovers from open heart surgery

    Everstudy – Please keep my son in your prayers as he prepares to head out of state to college (we move him in August). Also, keep my wife in your prayers as she prepares to let our son head out of state for college.

    Michael – Prayers appreciated as I navigate this weeks happenings here…major stories take a lot of energy and stamina and I have little of either.
    Pray for all concerned that we will act in truth and righteousness…

    ERunner – I will also be seeing an endocronologist to have my parathyroid checked as my body is producing way too much calcium. Would you pray this works out and that I will trust God through the process? Thank you. Allan

    j2theperson- My friend’s 6 month old grandson had surgery june 17, to unfuse the plates in his skull. If you could keep him in your prayers we’d all appreciate it.

    Michael – I could use some prayer

    Linnea – Would you pray for Greg? He and my husband play tennis. He was treated for an aggressive brain cancer and thought he was clear, but it has roared back. Please pray for healing and that he and his wife come to know the Lord. Thank you!

    Xenia-+Pray for the churches of Sri Lanka

    Paige – Asking for prayer for a family issue… God knows…. and the silencing of a lying gossip who is spreading slander about me to family members and others. It’s an on going issue that is quite perplexing, and apparently demonic. Twisted, delusional and strange.

    I spoke to a trusted friend about the issue and was told “Satan has given XYZ power to turn people against you” and “XYZ has been used by Satan to destroy your former marriage and harm the church and now to divide your family”.

    This XYZ happens to also be cyber stalking me here on the Phoenix preacher.
    May God enlighten all souls to see and know Truth and walk in it by His Spirit.

    Jerod- find a good internship.

    j2theperson- my church has been dealing with crazy church stuff.

    cash – depression , PTSD

    David H – I could use a prayer. I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy . Right side of my face is paralyzed. Prednisone and an antiviral.

    Vicki McClellan – I’ve been struggling since my husband passed. But I have been angry at God for not answering my prayers and healing him. After all, the kids and grandkids and I still need him here. Help me understand.

    Michael – heart aneurysm and a bad valve, bad back and neck issues.

    Captain Kevin – Please pray for my oldest daughter. She is separated from her husband. This is probably the 3rd time in the 3 years they’ve been married. I’m not sure who is more at fault or if there is any abuse, so I just pray for God’s will. They are believers, I think.

    JD – Marshal whose mother told him that she doesn’t love him

    JoelG – filing for custody of my 2 younger teenagers. I found hundreds of explicit photos of my youngest daughter that I’m sure have been shared.
    -My ex, daughter and I met to talk, discipline and love on our daughter. We’re all in the same page moving forward and she will be getting counseling.

    Linnea – Jon and Sarah. Please pray that they would know God’s love and would follow Him out of horrible lifestyles to freedom.

    the new Victor – pray for God’s protection and mercy upon my children, who’ve been through a lot, including witnessing domestic violence in the other home, and that I am strong and engaged enough to lead them so they don’t turn out like the sons of Eli.

    Bob Sweat – we are asking God to open a door to a small church somewhere in the US who want a pastor to love them and faithfully teach the Word.

    Michael, Rick, Joel, Dan, capt. Kevin, Owen – wand to hear from God in their prayer life

    JTK- ongoing back issue.

    I made amends with my dad several years ago, and have had a wonderful relationship with him. Buster and dad became great friends and dad and son-in-law. I shared many pictures of little misty, her husband and my now 2year old granddaughter. they have made several trips to Kentucky with us to visit him over the years.

    I am sad and heartbroken that my daddy passed away on August 21st this year. we had to beg my step-mother to come see my dad on his death bed. We had a great relationship with her as well, we thought. After about 3 days of dad being in the hospital on a ventilator for pneumonia and tons of fluid build up in his chest and lungs, we told her we were coming. We were only allowed to see him for 2 hours, by her orders, on Thursday. He was fighting for his life in the hospital for 2 weeks. I was able to hug him, kiss him, and talk to him in his ear. I reminded him of God’s forgiveness and that Jesus was reaching His hand out to him. that he just had to take it. As my dad always ended our conversations, texts, and visits, I told him I love you, always have and always will. His eyes filled with tears and he squeezed my hand. I know he is in heaven at Jesus feet, healthy, happy , in no pain, and has no sickness. And that he is reunited with his parents and brother. I also know he will be there to hug me when I go home.

  4. Michael says:


    My heart goes out to you…I’m sorry for your loss.
    May the comfort of God and the knowledge of reunion be yours…

    This Valley is For Me

    As I look down this mountainside
    I can see where this road goes
    The Shepherd is leading me
    To a place where I can grow
    Though it seems to be a trying test
    I have no doubt He knows what’s best
    It just might be a place of perfect rest
    This valley is for me

    This valley is for me
    The waters have been made so sweet
    A pleasant rest for my weary feet
    This valley is for me
    A far cry from the mountain scene
    The grass here has been made so green
    My Shepherd chose this route
    So I can say without a doubt
    This valley is for me

    Standing here beside still waters
    I know why I am here today
    This place of restoration
    Will strengthen me along the way
    Through the valley I can feel
    His presence here is so, so real
    And now I know it was His perfect will
    This valley is for me

    My Shepherd chose this route
    So I can say without a doubt
    This valley is for me.

    Thank you so much big brother. I know you have too much loss in your life already. Your words are a comforting big hug.

    Please know that my heart is always in thought and prayer for you my dear friend. Though your body, spirit and heart are always in constant pain and anguish, you always find the strength to comfort your flock, your family and your friends.

    You are loved by more than you know. You are highly regarded by so so many people. You are a hero and such an honorable man. I look up to you as a wonderful example of who God wants us to be. Though you are persecuted your still honor your God. I want to be just like you when I grow up.

    Jesus please pray for our brothers and sisters on this prayer list. We have no words. We beg You Father to answer our prayers, their prayers. Holy Spirit speak Your words though us, that we may pray in agreement to God’s will. We praise You Father, Healer, Savior, King of all kings.
