Prayer & Praise
O Lord Jesus Christ,
who at your first coming sent your messenger
to prepare your way before you:
grant that the ministers and stewards of your mysteries
may likewise so prepare and make ready your way
by turning the hearts of the disobedient
to the wisdom of the just,
that at your second coming to judge the world
we may be found an acceptable people in your sight;
for you are alive and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
remember in prayer
Captain Kevin – Asking prayer for a new pain issue. Something is going on with my jaw. Have seen 2 doctors. Dentist will need to be next. Possibilities include dislocated jaw, muscle cramps, and root infection in teeth. Hurts to chew, swallow and yawn.
JD – Marshal whose mother told him that she doesn’t love him
JD- Ted’s wife is out of the hospital, and he is caring for her at home as she continues to improve.
John 20:29- Dusty has kindly carried my cousin in the prayers list for some time now – barring a miracle he’s entering the final stages of his cancer… prayers have been appreciated and heard. .. They’ve brought him some good months. Jerry married his high school sweetheart and prayer for her and their 3 children (adults with families) would be so welcome now. They’ve been a close couple and now, even tho she is a Believer, she will face growing old without her life partner…
JoelG -remember my family in prayer as I begin the difficult road of 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 wife is clearly not as concerned as she should be as she is a Narcissist. This will cause strained relationships with kids and ex but I have no choice as I want to prevent whatever my youngest would do next with herself.
If you have teenagers please be aware of what’s out there. I am shocked and appalled.
-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.
John 20:29 – i have a son dealing with a gorgeous 16 year old daughter who is trying to come to terms with womanhood and who is in the custody of her bi-polar mother, so i have some inkling of what you’re dealing with
New Victor – A friend at work lost his eldest son over the weekend in a head-on collision
Linnea – another friend, whose adopted son committed suicide a month ago, has asked for prayer for two other of his adopted siblings: Jon and Sarah. Please pray that they would know God’s love and would follow Him out of horrible lifestyles to freedom.
Linnea- John’s wife who is recovering from lung cancer surgery
Dan from GA- Sad note: wife and I had to say goodbye, for now, to our dearly loved and loveable and insanely cute dog Sophie a few days ago. She was 15yrs old and getting ill alot. I know today that somewhere someone far greater than wife and I is caring for her needs.
filbertz – the week from hell continues: one of my freshman students killed himself this morning. Devastated.
filbertz – One of my students was evidently struck by a car at her bus stop this morning and died. Our school is shocked and grieving deeply. Prayers for her family–she was an only child and was thirteen years old
London- my mom who is two years out from surgery for pancreatic cancer and a week
and a half out from back surgery for three fractures in her spine.
Caretaking is hard work at times and it seems that I lose track of time pretty easily
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. Yes, I always go worst case. I thank and praise God for that which I have been given to steward, especially my lambs.
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. I have recently applied to churches in Idaho and Montana.
prodinov –son, 5 having nightmares, I am still processing these dark attacks since they are unlike anything I have experienced. Prayers guys…it is unfair for a 5 yr old to be attacked….
