    • Dear Father, I lift up M and her family to you today. Give them peace about this job situation. Father, if this is the job you have for him, give them assurance. If your plan is for a different job we ask that you make that clear. In all, may they feel your love and presence in their lives. Amen

      • Please pray for my sister. Her husband, my dear brother-in-law died Tuesday due to gross medical negligence of so many, the doctors and nurses. We both are RN’s and he and we, all watched and fought so hard. Doctors and nurses who were careless made the decision, his life did not matter. He died as a result. I no longer have faith in anyone.

        • Dear Lord,
          I would like to pray that you would be with Rosie and her sister. Do not let their faith in you diminish. I pray that they would be comforted by the power of your Holy Spirit. I pray that you would turn this bad situation into something good. I pray that the medical community would realize their part in this situation and repent, and come to know your son JESUS as their Savior. Amen

        • Rosie

I believe she is very sad and angry that she is still single at 28 when all of her friends are engaged, married or having babies. She is taking most of her resentment out on me. I just pray for God to radically soften and change her heart. She has become a very bitter person and needs His love desperately because she has alienated me. Thank you.
    Blessings,
    Bev

    • Lord, please bless Bev’s daughter and Bev so that reconciliation may occur. Remove the hurt and divisiveness and replace it with love and unity. Lord let them both not lean on their own understanding but acknowledge You in this. Lord You withhold no good thing so let them trust that Your plan for their lives is sufficient so they need not worry about where they are they just need to trust that no matter what it looks like You are in control. Lord I know from experience how hard it is to see children struggle and how they can blame parents, even sometimes blame You but God let them listen to You for guidance and comfort. Help them to get divine wisdom and let us not worry but trust that You have them. You are in control so let us let go and just provide all the love they need as they struggle. Help children understand that we need their love too and that are hearts have been made to want them happy. Let us not kick against the pricks in any way. Pain is not necessary if we follow you. Lead the way God. Bring harmony into this relationship. We pray and trust You now. In Jesus name, amen.

    • Heavenly Father,
      I ask you to reveal your plan to each member of Bev’s family. Her son to strength his walk and rely entirely on you more. To her daughter to soften her actions and words toward her mother, and comfort her as she realizes resentment has no place in any relationship… and continue to shower your loving wisdom through Bev to others, even in her personal struggles. Her words have been such an inspiration to others, especially me. Thank you.

  4. Please pray for my family. We lost our 18 year old son in January and the pain is overwhelming. We are coming up on so many “firsts” without him and sometimes it’s hard to even get out of bed much less take care of the rest of the kids. Thank you in advance.

Let them celebrate his life but also celebrate the life they are living in his memory. Lord I beseech You to give them what they need as they need it. Give them Your favor, wisdom, joy, peace, strength and comfort to face each moment.! Wrap Your arms around them everyday. I thank you in advance for all the people they are going to bless in the future and the purpose You have for their lives. Give them the strength to walk in it. In Jesus name, amen.

    • Dear Stacey,
      So sorry for your loss. Praying for Peace and Comfort for you and your precious family. The Lord is healing your broken heart.

      The Broken Chain

      We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.

      In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same.

      It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go alone;

      for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

      You left us peaceful memories; your love is still our guide;

      and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.

      Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same;

      but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

    • Father be with Nicola at this moment. Help her to give these family struggles to you. Guide her to be the person in this situation who is gracious and also discerning. May these affiliates be healed and whole.

  5. Please pray for me, a single mom. I need a financial blessing. Pray that God will help me make better decisions when it comes to finances, that I may be able to get out of debt. I’m also seeking a better job.

    • JG,
      I to am a single mom in the same situation you are in. I will lift you in prayer daily. It’s hard being a single parent but God will direct our steps and provide for our needs. Father, I lift JG and her family up to you. I ask that you would provide a better paying job with good benefits for her and her family. Help her to make wise decisions with her money and show her how to budget the money she has. Cause people to help her, to help relieve the stress single parenthood can bring. Maybe someone will watch the children to give her a few hours of time for herself. Or maybe someone will cut her grass or help clean her house. I know when people have done that for me, it brought me relief and hope and strength to keep pressing on. Lord, thank you for meeting her needs. In your name I pray. Amen and Amen!
      Kathy

    • Dear Lord,
      As a single mom IStand with AG in prayer.
      Lord, according to your lovingkindness have mercy and relinquish JG from the strongholds of debts and blot out her transgressions (Psalm 25:16)., Psalm 51:1,
      Psalm 30:10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on JG; Lord, be her helper!” For we cannot do it on our own but with You it is possible (Matthew 19:26). You are the God who gives JG the ability to get wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18) so please bless the work of her hands and all that You put in JG’s hands to prosper. (Deuteronomy)

      Thank You Lord for Your favor and mercy and added blessings. I know that You know what we need before we ask (Matthew 6:8) but that You also said to ask and in faith believe (Matthew 21:22) and we believe that You are able to do abundantly more than I can even imagine (Ephesian 3:20)

      Have Your way in JG’s situation and more importantly in her life.

      Bless each and every person that prays this prayer in agreement with me Lord. Give them the desires of their hearts. (Psalm 20:4) May You grant them according to their heart’s desire, And fulfill all their purposes.

      Lord I thank you in advance and I count it all joy knowing that trials come to make me strong ( 1 Peter 5:10) and that every good and perfect gift is from above (James 1:17) but most of all that You are the best gift and that You have given the gift of salvation (Ephesians 2:8) and that is above all.

  8. Please pray for my sister. Her husband, my dear brother-in-law died Tuesday due to gross medical negligence of so many, the doctors and nurses. We both are RN’s and he and we, all watched and fought so hard. Doctors and nurses who were careless made the decision, his life did not matter. He died as a result.

      Blessings to you all,

      Penny

  9. Please pray that I regain my passion for God again. I am sinking in a world of depression and I have no desire to read God’s word or pray. Its actually awful as I have never felt this way before.

    • I’m praying for you! Just take baby steps . When you’re feeling down , just remember that God is always with you. He loves you so much and cares for you cause He’s your father in Heaven. Just asked Him to help you . Remember Jeremiah 29:11
      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. .

    • Areum,
      I a praying for you, but i strongly urge you to go see a medical professional. Depression can be caused by circumstances, but it is also a medical illness. I have suffered with bouts of depression for many years, but they have been made substantially better by being on the right medication because I have a chemical imbalance. I do believe that God can use doctors to help us climb out of the pit of depression. I KNOW first hand how awful it is and how debilitating. When I am depressed I have no desire to pour myself a bowl of cereal let alone read His word. There IS help, praying that you will seek it and also that you would get counseling if your depression is circumstance related as well. Praying for God’s healing touch to be upon you, but please consult a physician to see if medical intervention is needed.
      Blessings,
      Bev

That He alone give me the wisdom, the vision and the resources I need to be successful but most of all let me be blessed to be a blessing to others. In Jesus name, amen

    • Father, give R a servant’s heart in this new leadership role… may she use the gifts you have given her to reflect you in all she does.

  14. I recently lost my husband to ALS. Actually it would be better described that he has gone forward to be with the Lord in heaven and I’m still here on earth with God. I am unable to refocus and hear from God what I am to be doing now…even having an identity crisis as we were one now I’m without him. This pain I don’t recognize and while I use the common strategies suggested in grief counseling I can’t feel any change.

    • Praying for you this morning. Asking God to reach into your grief and hold you tight. That you will see your identity in who you are in Christ not in the earthly rolls we play. God loves you he has a plan for you, you are still here on earth, still breathing so you can believe it, even if it doesn’t feel like it. (((Hugs))) & Prayers.

  15. I am praying for M and her husband’s job situation. Please pray for my husband and I in a season of waiting as far as our call and our gifts. We are both musicians and creatives that have spent our lives leading worship in a church and have been called now to be still and wait for a season…it is so hard. I am also a writer and am struggling with that right now. Thank you!

    • Father I pray that Marsha and her husband will find this time as a chance to be ministered to by you… may they grow in you and be refreshed and renewed a when you call them back to serve you.

  16. I am so tired of battling past my past. Just when I think I’ve delt with it all a new layer is uncovered. Please pray that once and for all I can see how God loves me. That I can’t earn it that it just is., that it’s real & it’s for me not just other people.

    • LuAnn! He loves you no matter what! IT IS REAL! HE is real! None of us are perfect and we all have things in our pasts we’d like to forget forever. Move forward in His love and have faith in Him and yourself! YOU are a daughter of a mighty King!

    • Gracious Father, I ask you to show her rays of hope that you are in charge. Let her feel your care in this time of struggle. I know personally, you are there and protect us during the difficult times.

  20. M – I have prayed for your husbands job situation-that He will give you peace and wisdom.

    Please remember me this week as I go to the doctor about an abnormal stress test. I’m pleaing with my Heavenly Father that it is nothing.
    (Recently diagnosed with adult type 1 late onset diabetes so I am NOT a happy camper!) Thanks!

    • Father, you made Ludia’s heart and you can keep it healthy… give her peace this week as she seeks answers, may there be nothing amiss with her heart…

  21. Please pray for me during a stressful time at work this week, in particular Thursday and Friday! Something that I prepared for for a long time and has been very trying on my heart and mind due to the many personalities involved. I wish and need to feel God’s love and support that day while others will most likely give me the opposite… Thank u!

    • I pray our Lord and savior gives you peace during this stressful time at work. If what you prepared is in line with God’s will all will work out for the good of the company. Continue to stay in his will and no matter the outcome you are left standing stronger than ever. Have a great week. I’m praying!

  22. Please pray for me. I’m a widow with 4 children, one adult daughter who is mentally challenged. I’m currently unemployed seeking job in interior design. I’m a loner and looking to meet genuine families in Christ. I’m asking God to use me however he sees fit in my community. God is Power and he loves us all but I’m standing in the need.

    • Father. I pray for Cheryl that she will genuinely feel your presence in her life. It’s hard for us loners to put ourselves out ther so I pray that you will cross her paths with just the right people for her to develop relationships… thank you, Father…

  23. Please pray for my son, Josh, that his heart would be receptive to God’s relentless love. Bind the dark forces around him in the life choices he is making, in the friends he is choosing. And heal his hurting heart.

    • Father, be with Josh – open his heart to your amazing and forgiving love. Be with Sheri, quiet her heart and help her to trust you for wisdom to say and do just the right thing to help Josh find his way to you… thank you, Father

  24. M, I pray for you and your husband that you would have discernment to know whether or not this job is the one God intends him to have or if he needs to continue looking, trusting God to provide another job. I pray that God’s perfect peace, the peace that passes all understanding, would stand guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. I pray that your family would be rooted in love and that you would be knit together as a family.

    Please pray for my husband, John, for complete healing of a ruptured Achilles’ tendon and for the blood clots that have formed in his leg and lungs as a result of the surgery on his leg, that they would completely dissolve. Please pray for protection from anything else that would cause bleeding while he is on blood thinning medication for at least 3 months. I would also appreciate prayer that I would not be consumed by anxiety during this time but that my faith would grow and I would be a witness to God’s faithfulness in this challenging time.

  25. Please pray for my family situation. My daughter and granddaughter have lived with us for the past 7 years while my daughter was attending college. My daughter graduates in December and has applied for a job on the other side of the country. Our granddaughter knows us as parents more than her mother. Moving that far will break her heart as well as ours. Pray for God’s will in this. Our daughter has rejected her Christian upbringing and needs to come back to God. If this is what it will take, help us to accept it and protect our granddaughters heart.

  26. Dear Lord Jesus,
    Please provide for M’s family. Pray that M and her husband would have peace in this situation and look for your provision. Thank you Lord for being our provider. Amen

    Pray that those who are unbelievers in our lives would be touched by the power of your Holy Spirit and come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Please send a great awakening around the world! Amen

  28. Please pray for me as I am discouraged. I am worried about finances. I am in constant pain from surgery that did not go well. My job is so stressful and difficult for me to perform due to the pain in my body. I have to use a walker to walk and each step hurts. I am lonely, burned out and just need to see God’s hand move in my circumstances.

    • Dear Lord, please lift K up. Help her daily physical pain and ease her financial burdens. Provide her peace and comfort during this difficult time. In your holy name I pray. Amen.

  29. Please pray for clarification and understanding with my career path. It is new and what I thought would be a perfect fit may not be. I feel anxious and upset most of the time. I am praying for His peace and a clear understanding in this path. Thank you!

  30. Please pray for my beloved husband, Francisco, to be completely set free from all his addictions/sinful lifestyle; accept God’s infinite love, mercy, forgiveness and healing; return to the Lord and his marriage…In Jesus’ Name…

    • Hi Kay,

      I posted right below you and I’m going through the same struggle. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under our feet (Romans 16:20). Praying for your strength and deliverance!

      Amber

  31. I’ve been struggling again with panic, dread, fear, all the hallmarks of anxiety. The manifestations of it are dogging me constantly to the point where it feels like, at their worst, there is no safe place to hide. It’s also flared up at a time when I am aware of God’s provision and work in my life (and in others’), and being proactive with these gifts He has given. I feel like the enemy is working double overtime on me these days.

    Part of my worry is because of what will happen to my beloved USA. I’m dreadfully afraid of the outcome of the election and everything that is to come. Please also pray for God’s glory and mercy for our country. I’m not sure I even know what to ask for in this area but I will simply trust that He knows.

    • I so get what you are saying Amber.
      Thank you for sharing your heart.
      I have been in the Word too for 40 plus years….and all I can think of to do is keep praying and studying the Word. I know psaalm 91 and 23 are pivotal for fear help.
      Much Love in the Christ dear Sister. Let’s pray for each other, ok? You are an awesome woman to be able to be so transparent….and open. God and Jesus Christ help you to have peace.

  32. My husband, who is in his 40’s, is dying of liver and kidney failure. He is in hospice. I am 31, and our young son is 9. Prayers for comfort, peace, and strength for everyone involved, especially my husband’s mother who is especially grief-stricken and hosting hospice in her home.

    • Debbie,
      Praying for you at this very moment….. I cannot even imagine what you are going through! But God knows and I am asking Him to be Your peace, comfort and grace at this time.

  33. Our family has been missionaries abroad for 20 years. 7 years ago our mission called us home for good. We have been in the US for 7 years now and it has been a struggle to get settled once again in US soil, from finances to adjustments of daily life. Right now we are struggling financially. Please pray for our Lord to meet our needs, for me to trust Him completely and have faith that He will see us through. I interviewed for a job last week, pray for God’s will in that and grace to accept the outcome.
    Thank you for praying for our family. I am always encouraged by reading your devotional and the comments!

    • I am so humbled that you chose a mission field as you life work….we know God works all things for good, so I pray that your waiting time on this job is reflective of God’s glory and love for your and your family!

  34. Please pray that I can be satisfied with Jesus. Help me to not want or demand things from my husband that he is unable and/or unwilling g to give. Pray that I will know & believe Jesus is enough.

  35. 1. Don’t be afraid to ask.
    It’s what God wants you to do! “Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you” (Psalm 50:15). “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you” (John 15:7). Like Jesus himself, pray (always!) for God’s will: “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14).
    Father who has never forgotten or broken a promise we humbly ask for your intervention that this family may have what you promised we thank you for our daily blessings in the name of thy precious son Jesus Christ Amen

  36. Wow! you are all amazing! I came back sooo encouraged to see so many wonderful prayer warriors lifting up our situation. Thank you, thank you thank you! Praying for you all, that God will hear you and surround you with peace, comfort and His provision. To most importantly make His presence known in each of your lives.

    Lord, please hear each of our prayers and thank you for these wonderful women.

    Thank you all again.

  37. My family, especially my husband needs prayers. The company he worked for closed its doors 1 year ago and has yet to find employment. He suffers from severe depression. He doesn’t want to live any more. My load on caring for our family and trying to help him has become so heavy.

    • Praying with you for restoration sister! Always remember, He is carrying you and loves you so! He will never leave your side. Lifting you and your family to Him!

  38. Please pray for my son–for healing, good, godly friends, and for my anxious mother’s heart to trust God regarding his life. I deeply appreciate your prayers!

    • Abba, You’ve touched my mother’s heart. I join M in asking You to draw her son to Yourself – as gently as possible but as firmly as You need to do so. Please open His eyes today to see Truth, to expose lies and deception. Please grant him a heart that seeks You! I do ask that You bring godly friends into his life to love him closer to Yourself. Please grant M peace that passes understanding as a guard around her mind, will, emotions, inner being…. Oh, Father, how YOU know we cannot relinquish the anxiety unless You take it from us, so please replace it with Your assurance that You are actively working in this son’s life. You will never leave him or forsake him. You will continue to pursue him. We join this battle for his loyalties and ask You to grant him healing victory!! Please do even more than we know to ask or think! Use his deliverance as a platform for Your glory! Take what satan means for evil and use it for Your kingdom’s advancement!! Raise up an army of prayer for him, for M, for all who love him. We trust in You!!

    • Dear M. I pray that God will do a healing work in M’s son’s heart & bring godly & good examples of what it means to trust in God. When my son, D, was in the same place as your son, God gave me the verse: “Bring up a child in the way he should go, & when he is old he will not depart from it.: I claimed this for my son for years, & God worked wondrous miracles to bring D to the place where he switched from playing in a grunge band & taking school for music, & then, with the help of a sincere Christian friend, did a complete turnaround in his life & his switched his
      schooling – from Music to Theology. Praise God. I will claim this for your son.

      • I forgot to give you my prayer request when I replied to M’s. I have not only a request but a huge praise. My request is for my health, that is reclining & my husband’s mental health is declining…he has the beginnings of dementia. Please pray for healing for both of us, or acceptance, if this is our cross to bear.

        I praise God that he is giving me back the joy of his love & a craving for His Word, which I’ve been missing for a long time. I never gave up…I just didn’t have the joy or peace…it is back, praise God. Also, I’ve not gone to church for quite some time, which is a long story, but I’m excited to say I will be going today.

    • Abba I pray touch her son and heal him, send godly friends and bring him nearer to You. For you M may the lord shines His light over you and keep you and give His peace in your heart.

    • Praying with you for restoration sister! Always remember, He is carrying you and loves you so! He will never leave your side. Lifting you and your family to Him!

  39. Please pray for my dear friends who have travelled across the world to share the good news of Jesus with their extended family. May the family have ‘ears to hear’ In Jesus Name, Amen

  40. Please pray for reconciliation of my sister & our family. She is struggling with her hormones through her pregnancy with twins & in haste is cutting the people that love her most completely out of her life & the lives of her 2 other little boys. Our hearts are breaking.

    • Abba, You call us to preserve the unity You create. Andrea longs for that unity with her sister. You obviously know how hormones impact our thoughts and emotions. PLEASE intervene! Protect this mother, her children – born and pre-born, her family…. Please cast down every lie and deception that the enemy is hurling at her! You are able! I pray for peace for her family and friends as they fervently seek You. Please let that peace guard their hearts and minds, and don’t let them grow weary in this battle. Abba, I ask that in Your kindness, You would encourage their hearts today that You ARE at work in this situation even now. Praise You that You are the God Who sees,Who hears, Who delivers, Who protects, Who provides! You are our only hope, but You are ENOUGH! Thank You for continuing the work You’ve begun!

  41. Please join us in celebrating God’s faithfulness to my friend Terri’s family through 3+ years of their cancer journey. It continues to spread through her body. She continues to trust in her Lord Who is able to heal – whether here or in heaven. She is seeking to rest in His provision for her husband (E) and children (K. a junior in college, and J. a sophomore in high school). “Now to Him Who is able to do exceedingly beyond all we ask or think, to him be the glory…!” Thank you for continuing to pray as He leads!

I have dealt with hypothyroidism/hashimotos for more than a decade now. It’s been a very up & down road. I hate the down parts for the sake of my family & almost this whole past year has been a down time. It wears out the spirit. I want to live a joyful life no matter the circumstances. Thank you

    • God bless you Mary. Please Jesus heal Mary of her infirmities. You Lord are healer of all, may Mary trust in you and be filled with contentment in all circumstances. Please Lord, help her to be able to run, play, and home school her beautiful babies. Thank You Lord, thy will be done. You are always faithful! In Jesus’ Name. Amen!

  44. Good Morning everyone! I ask that you please pray for me as I struggle with anxiety on a daily basis. I know there is no reason for me to worry, all is in God’s hands. I tell myself this and I find my mind is at peace for a few hours, sometimes even a day or two but then is tormented again by anxiety. I worry that I won’t receive my hearts desires of getting married and having babies. I also struggle with feeling selfish for wanting these things, when some people have nothing. I always focus on the what ifs and I struggle with fully trusting in the Lord. I am ashamed to even admit that because He is so good. Thank you for praying for me, I really appreciate it! God bless you all. Xoxo

    • Lord, I know that you have not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind. So Lord let her know she has the power to think on blessed things in her life vs. dwell on lack. Lord, let her know she is loved and surround her with that love so that she can radiate it to the world. Lord let her feel whole regardless of who in human form is with her as You are always with her. Lord give her a sound mind. Lord, the enemy wants to steal her joy and get her to focus on lack when you have come so that she may have an abundant life. Lord show her the abundance that surrounds her. Let her see the lushness of life. Help her to focus on the good things in life and participate in the good things so that she may enjoy her life. Let her live Lord. Shake her up. Renew her faith. Give her courage to go and enjoy life. Give her new opportunities. Lord let her praise you and watch your blessings pour down to overflow. In Jesus name, amen.

  45. Please pray for my son and his family. He has 4 children ages 12 to 18. He and his wife are struggling and not getting along well. One of them is talking about leaving.

    • Sharon,

      My prayers are with your son, and his family to find peace, and resolution as they struggle through a difficult time.

      I also pray that you will find peace while they sort through this.

      Take care,

      Penny

    • Lord You know the whole situation and the hearts involved. You Lord can restore hope. You Lord can cause forgiveness. You Lord can remend hearts. Lord we ask that You work a miracle for this family. We ask Lord that You step into the hearts and minds of each individual in that family and give them Your agape love for each other. Lord, right wrongs, tear down walls. Let them know that with You they are stronger together. Please Lord renew their faith in You and in each other. Help them to remember their love in its infancy and fan those flames again. In Jesus name, amen.

  46. Please pray for me and my boyfriend that we may both do God’s will and not ours and through it find both happiness and peace.

    Thank you.

    • Ang, may the Lord bless you both with His good, pleasing, and perfect will as you seek, know, and love Him. Praying for you 🙂

    • Elizabeth and An,
      As you both continue to pray for God’s will in your lives and in your dating relationships, God will honor that. The Lord promises that those who seek Him will find Him when they seek Him with all their hearts. Therefore, I would encourage you both to make sure that you put your whole passion into your pursuit of Him. He loves you intimately and longs to be close to you even more than you long to be near Him. Now, I’d like you to come into agreement with me that God will bless the launching of my career as a freelance journalist. I sold my first article this weekend; and I am so excited for the doors that God is opening. Be blessed.
      Keri Lynn SIegel

    • In these troubling times may God recognize your faith in turning to Him in prayer as well as asking others for prayer.
      This strengthens our focus to be on Him, and this pleases Him also, as he is rewarding you with blessings right now, thanking you, for your faith to leave it up to Him to come to Him, He wants to comfort you, and listen to you, and give you guidance to know he is communicating with you to do the right thing. In Jesus name, I pray He fill your hearts with his love and confidence in Him. Amen.

  47. Hi my prayer is not directly for me. But it is as you will see.
    Three years ago my eldest daughter suffered a miscarriage. She has PCOS. and worked hard to lose weight to get pregnant sadly the day she told us was at the same moment she told us she had had a miscarriage at seven weeks.
    This sent her into a huge downward spiral and left her to scared to have another go.
    She gained loads of weight etc etc
    Fast forward 18 months and Becky and her husband Carl announce they are going for adoption
    They are now waiting to go to approval panel but this is taking so long . I’m literally praying for a Christmas miracle if that makes sense , that they will be approved ( social worker see no reason why not to be approved ) and then a baby will be ready for a new start .so as you see I do benefit as I get another grandchild Becky’s Brother has two sons
    Thank you to all who read this. I will be reading and praying your requests as well God Bless you all

      • Father, The gift of children is amazing and it’s hard to understand why so many women are burdened by not being able to carry and bear children. Bless this couple as they seek to give a child a home, and please give them the Christmas miracle they desire.

    • Becky, may the Lord shine His face on your daughter, son-in-law, and you-what a wondrous gesture to adopt a child. May He bless your family and new baby with fresh starts in His enfolding love and grace 🙂

    • Praying for this. I don’t have PCOS but I’ve had four miscarriages this year so we are praying for a healthy baby and starting the foster to adopt process. It’s tough but I know it will be worth it! She’s not alone!

    • Tracy, I am praying for your daughter, and for you. I completely understand! My daughter had PCOS and was infertile for more than 4 years. Several miscarries, and devastation each time. I wept with her weekly on the phone since I was 10 hours away, I felt so helpless. She didn’t understand why God allowed unmarried, drug addict women get pregnant and not her. I know how heartbreaking it is for your daughter and you!
      Meghan, my daughter decided she would not only rely on her Doctor for answers and began doing research for hours daily to see what she could do to help her odds. She had her Vitamin D3 level checked and began eating only organic food, free from soy. A year later she was pregnant! Six years later she has three beautiful little girls! I am not saying that organic food will definitely help your daughter become pregnant, I want her to know what helped Meghan, I want her to have hope. I know as her mother you grieve with her.
      Meghan started an infertility support group in the midst of her journey and I know she would be happy to talk to your daughter if she would like. I could give you her information if you email me.

      I pray for peace for you and your daughter, as well as wisdom and strength.

  48. A prayer for some children not far from me, that are caught up in the struggles of others, and trying to make due would be appreciated.

    Thank-you,

    Penny

  49. I’ve started a new position at work and I feel as if I am stuck in similar situations as usual. I feel overwhelmed and unable to fulfill my duties. I’m even beginning to feel taken advantage of. I am staring to feel as if this was the wrong decision. Please pray for me, that I will just stay on God’s path. Thanks.

    • Father, Be with C. Grace as she serves you in this job. Help her to see it as a ministry to you and help her to reflect you in all she does.

  50. My life is totally turning upside down; I hope for positive reasons. Please pray for me as I embark on this new part of my life.

  51. Job searches. We pray for my husband as he looks for a new job. A job with potential, positive morale & more financial stability with flexible family time – as we care for our elderly parents as well as our own little ones. We pray as I look for a new job, too, one in which I can continue to work from home or telecommute so I can be home for the children before/after school. We are terribly struggling paycheck to paycheck on one income now. The burdens are heavy & plenty. The stress is suffocating our joy. Thank you for offering to pray as a community.

    • God is good always. He is Sovereign and I praise Him and thank Him believing He will provide for every need. I pray He will allow you to grow and glow from glory to glory and strength with wisdom to be in the waiting for His will, His timing and His way. Amen!

In The Name of Your Son Jesus I ask with praise and Thanksgiving for it all. Amen!

We have young children who are seeing and having to live with the turmoil around them.

You are the God of all and over all. I trust and believe that You are doing a good work in Mom and thru this test she will have a powerful testimony. In Jesus’ name….. Amen and amen.

She does not live in this country and it’s harder to minister Truth to her and her husband over the phone. I know God has a plan and I want to speak His wisdom and compassion and truth only. So please continue to pray for this. Thank you so so much. Prayers are perhaps the best way I see Jesus.

Thank you for praying!

I ask for His wisdom in what to say, to whom and when. I ask also for the wisdom of silence, to seek Him in holy stillness. There is also a time not to speak, and we should not stir anger but speak the truth in love. Ipray for all of you on the board this same pray, and call forth the healing of Isaiah 53.

    • Father, I pray for Rebecca and her family – may your wisdom be poured on those who being looked to for guidance and may they discern when to speak and when to quietly wait in prayer.

  63. Abba, I pray for Jenn that you’ll grant her your peace that passes all understanding. As she learns to be still and know that you’re God, all things will work together for good to those who love you and are called according to your purpose. I pray for your healing virtue to flow through her, touching her back and restore wholeness in Jesus name. May you continue to uphold her with your victorious right hand and teach her how to trust you with all her heart and then you can direct all her paths (decision making, balance in life, when to say yes or no). Thank you Lord for this precious sister. May you hold her close to your heart and let her know how much you love her. As your love saturates her being, she will be able to rest in your love and have a fresh new start, leaning on you all the way.

    Please pray for our family. About five months ago, my husband and his son had a conflict. Since then they’d not been able to see each other. Also his son didn’t allow us to see our two grandchildren. Recently, my husband told me that as he thought about his son, there’s still a lot of anger especially about not allowing us to see the grandchildren. I’m like a pendulum swinging from one feeling to another when I thought about what happened. I’m praying for reconciliation but I know we cannot hurry it, both need to get healed and be humbled enough to forgive each other’s trespass, so that they can move on. Thank you!

  74. I ask for prayers of quick resolution to my legal battle because I am prosecuting the woman/Movie Director from UK for using my story of abuse and turning around into a sexual deviant debauchery. My family have been hurt by this woman because she used their real names with no regard to privacy or publicity rights, and due to her use a woman raped and blamed on the man seeing the story to wonder what it would be like to try “that”. She’s changed the story but still making us a mockery till I can get her into court; which I can’t get there fast enough for my own good because of legal expenses. God knows the truth that I wrote my story to share to help other women see that they could leave their abusive situation. He sees us. He understands. He sees the whole picture. He hears us when we pray. He knows and He answers. I pray he makes us all stronger. Thank you for your stories of encouragement. Blessings to all.

        …the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10)
        My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth (Psalm 121:2)
        Just keep bringing it before him in prayer and he will give you wisdom as to what to do about it all. He loves you so very much and he loves to help.

  75. I don’t even know where to begin so I’ll try to just keep it short and sweet.

    Please pray for a financial miracle. I have my disabled mom living with me. Now my pregnant sister is moving in with her 2 year old daughter and we have no heat. I had saved for a heating system last year but our roof collapsed so I had to replace that. This year it’s been so hard to save with medical expenses. Some days we have very little food. Cannot imagine how I’m going to take care of 3 adults and 2 children when I can barely take care of 2 adults now. I’m grateful we will all be together, so please don’t get me wrong. I’m just so scared.

    Additionally, and I guess it has a lot to do with the above, I’m in a very bad place right now. I feel so hopeless, pathetic, and while I know it’s not true – I really do feel like the Lord has forgotten me. I haven’t felt this down in a really long time.

    I’m going to go ahead and pray for as many of the requests on this page as I can.

    • I’ll pray for God to make a way for you. A thought just came to mind (hopefully from the Lord): are there any United Way agencies in your area, or some way you and/or your sister can qualify for some much-needed help? If you have a church, perhaps some people there would be able to help, or at least point you in the right direction. And if you don’t have a church, I urge you to find one. You’ll find open arms and open hearts.
      I’m having hip replacement surgery on Tuesday. I am so thankful that it can be fixed, that it’s not life-threatening, and certainly not as grave as these posts, but I am apprehensive none the less, and asking for prayer. Thank you!

      • Father, be with Elaine as she prepares for her hip surgery… give her peace, give the doctors steady hands, may the results be healing and freedom from pain. Thank you Fathef for being the great physician.

    • I will pray for you Jennifer. I wish there was something else I could already do to help you, too.
      But I will pray for you, and ask the Lord to have mercy on your small family and send some joy along the way…
      I will pray in my mother tongue, which is not English.

    • Jennifer,
      My heart goes out to you. I am praying for you and your mother and sister and her children. I have also been through a time when I was deeply depressed and could not sense God with me or around me. I won’t go into the specific details but I did learn something about hope. Hope comes through trusting God, and knowing who he is. That what he has said about himself in the bible is true. He will never leave you or forsake you, Jennifer. You are his own. His own daughter. He is the God who sees you, and you are precious in his sight. He died for you and he will never forget you. He has your name engraved into his hand.
      Sometimes it is extremely hard but we have to choose to trust him even when we can’t see any visible signs that he is working on our behalf. But we have faith in the unseen. Hope is the fruit of trust and trust is something that we choose to do. When I was going through depression I felt my hope fading away, but the verse that got me through was this: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).
      I know God has an amazing and exciting future for you Jennifer! He has a special purpose for you. Don’t give up girl! He has not given up on you, honey. Praying for you throughout this week

  76. My children made the horrible decision to estrange from me, their Mother after inherriting a large sum of money. And now my Sweet husband has panceatic cancer. Please pray for my family and heart to be healed.
    I love you all…..
    Joanna

    • Father, be with Joanna and her family – bring healing to broken relationships and healing to her husband. Comfort and bring peace – thank you, Father.

  77. Please pray for me. I am a young widow with no family and no children. Please pray God would bring the right man for me into my life. Thank you.

    I will remember all intentions posted here in my prayers.

  78. Please pray for me, for I have trouble making the right decisions, for I worry too much about making the right choice. I have asked my boyfriend and family for help a lot this year, but time after time it seems all up to me: a new job or a move to a new home is all on me.
    I regularly panick about this, because I don’t know what’s right for both my career and for the couple (and family) I want to become with my boyfriend. It keeps me up at night and haunts me at work.
    I try to trust the signs the Lord gives me, but I am blinded regularly… please pray God will help me find my way, and will let me continue in practising the medical specialty I love so much.

    • Father, Right now I pray that you will calm Esther’s spirit and mind. May she rest in you, may Satan not blind her to your presence, may she be filled with assurance of your leading in her life. Thank you Father.

    • Hello, what a wonderful idea this is. i struggle tremendously with anxiety and depression. i know the Lord, but obviously have trouble trusting my life and those that i love to His outcomes. I homeschool and it is very hard with depression and anxiety. I feel like I can never do enough and am such a failure and carry such burdens; burdens that i need to allow the Lord or carry. I truly appreciate your prayer.

      JF I prayed for you!

      • Father, I pray for Kae – fill her with your love and give her strength for the awesome work of schooling her children. Calm her anxious heart – may she feel your presence every moment… thank you for loving us so much.

        • thank you so much! what an encouragement it is to know that Christians don’t even know are praying for me! God Bless you as well!

  79. Please pray for me and my unborn child. I have to wean off my anxiety medication and I’m so scared. Scared for my mental health but this is what’s best for my baby. I lost my job due to my pregnancy and I’m not near family. I just need to feel God take control of my emotions and mental state. But I am so so scared.

  80. Please pray for my husband and I to grow our family. I’ve had four miscarriages this year and we are starting the foster to adopt process. Praying to build a beautiful family!

    • Kristen, I pray that God will give you & your husband what you need at the appointed time. I touch & agree with you for a miracle. I’ve been where you are. Never give up. Greater is coming. Be Blessed!

    • Lisa, I am praying for your through your depression and struggles in your marriage. May God provide you wisdom, strength and guidance. May you always know that God is beside you and with you each step that you take.

  81. My prayer request is that I will finally understand how unhealthy my current relationship is. That I will not allow myself to feel guilty when the time comes to say goodbye. That I will be able to keep my heart and eyes upward towards the Lord.

  82. I would really appreciate prayer for my husband, Steve. He is very close to coming to church and going deeper in his walk with Jesus. He needs to get to know Jesus more and would benefit from reading his bible. He also has pain in his body from various injuries. Both of his shoulders have problems in and around the joints and he could have to wait a whole year for surgery. He also has a problem his right arm which is causing a lot of pain that we don’t yet know what the cause is. His left hip joint has a steel pin that is impinging on a main tendon and causing pain. He can’t take pain killers very often because they cause him to have gastric reflux and he has already suffered from oesophageal cancer because of reflux, where he had to have a big part of it removed.
    Thankyou

    • Selina, I pray for Steve and that God’s healing hand rests on him and helps him through his injuries. I also pray for him to find Jesus and grow in his walk with Him. And I pray for you to have love, patience and grace as you help him through this time.
      Tania

  83. Please pray for my son,Shaun. He is struggling with some anxiety issues and it is making it very difficult for him to get some things done that he both has to and wants to. Please also pray for my husband and I as we do our best to guide him, be there for him, love him through this and keep our patience as we search for the right professional help for him.

  84. I’m getting a small cancer removed from my forehead next week (basal cell, so can’t spread anywhere else in the body), and because it’s so visible and will require plastic surgery after the removal, I’m struggling with a lot of shame, and realizing how much shame in other areas drives a lot of my life. I want to be open to the movement of Spirit within me at this time, so that whatever God wants to do is accomplished.

    • Dear Heavenly Father, help Sarah to realize that any scar left after surgery is a supernatural battle scar. This scar carries with it a testimony…her testimony. A testimony to share with others & parallel with other areas in her life. Allow her to embrace those shameful areas in her life, & realize that she never has to be alone. You’re always with her. Amen.

    • Sarah, I understand! I had a melanoma removed from my forehead four years ago. I had a skin graft and have lost half of my eyebrow. Your scar will settle and the surgeons will do a wonderful job. You will get used to your scar – don’t have shame. I thin of Jesus and his scars.
      P.s. once you are allowed to massage your scar – Dermatix really helps! Much love, Louise

  85. Pray for my teenage son who is not saved. Hard for a mom to watch bad choices being made consistently and having to dole out the consequences consistently.

  86. Hello, could you please pray for me, as I have MRSA, the flesh eating bacteria in my leg.
    I really appreciate your prayers, and God Bless you all.

    • Please pray for me as I am going through a financial crisis. Need God’s mercy and favor. So stressed.

    • Dear Lord please touch Jennifer’s leg with your healing power. You have the power to command the MRSA to dry up and be eradicated. Would you do that please? You know how dangerous this is Abba, please hear our prayer and comfort our sister.

    • I pray for Jennifer – dear lord bring this bacteria under control and bring healing to her. Be with Jennifer while you restore her Lord and that you are glorified. In Jesus name, Amen.

  87. I desire to do the Lord’s will in my life but I also desire to be married. I am finding this season of being alone getting difficult now – I desire to do life together with another.

    • I join you in prayer. I ask that the Lord hear the desires of your heart and moves you to the place you need to be in to receive them. I pray for wisdom and discernment for you as you make this journey.

  88. In Courage,

    This month is a month of praise for me. Over the last few years I’ve had to deal with my aging dad’s mental issues worsening. God saw fit to heal him radically. He is able to go for car rides, and takes walks outside. What a complete turnaround. Since He was doing so good I decided to get a part time job. You guessed it. God handed me a job in less than a week. I heard about the opening on Friday. Applied on Monday & had an interview. Got a phone interview Tuesday by the owner and by Thursday was offered the job. I had heard of this happening to others, but not me. My pastor’s wife knew the owner and called in a reference for me. Yes that may have gotten me the interview. I give God all the Praise for the job!!

    Blessings 🙂

    • Glad to hear these praises in your life. It encourages me as I am in a season of waiting that God will eventually make His ways clear in my life.

      God bless you!

      Melissa

  89. Please pray that God will give me the direction in my life that I am seeking. In a very dry, lonely season (long season) of waiting on God and feel I am at the end of my rope. Praying God will hear my cries and strengthen my heart as I continue to wait and try to trust in His plan for my life.

    Thank you so much!

    Melissa

  90. I have recently suffered a miscarriage following an IVF procedure. Please pray for me that God will give me healthy children in his own time. Please pray that my PhD position is restored and God should give me the strength and resources needed to complete my research, as my research has suffered as a result of numerous trips to the hospital over the past year. Thank you

    • Father God, I pray for healing over Tolu. Lord I pray that you give her the strength to continue in her PhD program. Lord you say in your word “we can do all things through Jesus Christ who gives us strength”-Philippians 4:13. Lord I pray in your timing you bless her with beautiful, healthy, strong children. In Jesus name Amen!

  91. Please pray for my relationship with my son’s father. His job causes him so much stress that at times he wants to give up. Please pray God opens up a new door for him, one where he can provide and still have his dignity. Please pray we continue to be the best parents to our two year old son. Lastly, please pray for healing over my body, I have Sickle Cell.

  92. Please pray with me that I may have God’s heart toward my mom. Thanks!

    Anonymous,
    Praying for His wisdom, peace, and security as you go through this financial crisis.

    • I have a family crisis that has been going on for so many years that I almost feel like it is too late now for any healing to take place. I try to hold on to some hope but hope is fading. I have prayed the same thing for so long without any results, and in fact, things have gotten worse. It’s common for me now to just lay it before the Lord unspoken than to try to put my brokenness into words. Since I don’t even know how to pray for this situation anymore, I don’t expect you to either. Maybe just whatever God puts on your heart? I know that God knows every detail and he can sort through the clutter. Thank you!

      Noelle- I am praying for you to see & understand your mom through God’s eyes and to love her with God’s heart.

      • I am praying for you Alyssa! I hear your heart and I KNOW God hears your heart and your unspoken prayers. Your heart’s cry IS prayer to the One Who knows, knows all about it. I don’t know your circumstances but the Lord Jesus does. I don’t have to know your circumstances to hear your heart in what you wrote. You see, I understand so well. So I can pray from my heart for you. You are NOT alone!!! Though you may feel so totally alone, as I do, BUT, I know that we are not! The Lord promised to never leave us nor forsake us. Our feelings lie to us, the enemy lies to us to wear us down and try to get us to give up, BUT, Jesus is the Author & Finisher of our faith, the Shepherd & Bishop of our souls. Sometimes it does get worse just before breakthrough, so hang on Alyssa!!! The Lord will bring you through!

      • Alyssa, you must remember that while our hearts and our calendars say time has passed, God says “just wait, I’m coming”. The HOPE that your faith in HIM shows is amazing! HE sees it! HE honors it!
        Live expectantly and audaciously optimistic of God’s great show HE will do in front of your eyes and in your life!! You must keep hope!!! Above it all continue to hope and pray!!

  93. I was laid off earlier this year very soon after I returned to work from my maternity leave. Unfortunately, I’ve been trying to tell God what to do instead of trusting. I have a job interview tomorrow. Please pray that I will perform well, but will hope in My Provider and not in the job itself.

    • Lord, be with Jessica during her interview…be her wisdom, strength and confidence that she needs to succeed to gain employment. I know it’s hard but God’s live helps us through those difficult time. Walk with his son shining through you.

  94. Please pray for me, my name is Dawn & I am struggling . I am disabled but very capable of a meaningful purpose. I struggle with a body that has been assaulted to the point of partial paralysis, & a lot of metal & plastic throughout. This pain & scars every where I can & am living with. It’s the isolation from not being in the working world, a fellowship with others & I feel like I do nothing to please God.I am praying for him to show me, I help my sisters’ children who are now getting older & having children of their own but we have lost our parents to cancer a while back & my family has fallen away from each other, & from the Lord every since. This with the isolation is a depressing existence. I am only 53,a cancer survivor of almost two years & survived an assault that was brutal. I am also an artist & I try to stay busy. I just feel no true purpose anymore & I can’t hear what God wants me to do. Please pray for me to feel my relationship with God, & that I stop just existing & start to have a purpose in this world. Thank you for taking the time to read all of this. Bless you All Sincerely. I am praying for you Jennifer & others in need of prayer here as well.

    • I can feel your pain. I am a similar age also can’t survivor with scars everywhere and no paid job. Let’s pray for each other. X mouse.

    • Dawn,
      Your post made me cry, because I have been in that place where I thought I had no use in this world. I was convinced that I was useless with no purpose and was even to the point of being angry at God because he was making me live! It was such a dark time in my life. Years later I understand why God allowed me to go through that and I am grateful I did. (although I NEVER want to be there again)

      Let me assure you, you please God by praying for others, and for helping your sister and her children. He loves you beyond what you could possibly imagine!!!! I pray that your ears would be opened to hear what God has called you to do. I pray that you would KNOW His love in a practical way, that God would wink at you. I pray for you to have confidence in His love.

      • Hi Lynn,
        Your words truly touched me & I just want to say “Thank You” for the encouragement & prayer. It is a dark place but I do see His light shine through in certain ways through out each day. All I have to do is look & actively participate in seeing it, reading his word, & doing exactly what you said about praying for others. I also thanked God for you & another woman taking the time to read my cry for help through prayer & responding. I sincerely appreciate you doing this. May God continue to Bless you & yours in Jesus name

    • OMGOSH!!! I believe you have a great purpose in store!!! REACH out! You can do this!! That longing in your heart that says you have a meaningful purpose is it!!! YOU know it!!! That seed of knowing is placed in your heart, open your heart and let the light come in and allow it to grow!!! Girl you have a testimony!!! Say it! Scream it!! Witness to someone else who is struggling!!! The world may limit you, but with God you are limitless!!! God is awesome!! Tell HIM every single day, and tell that devil to flee and may your hearing, and your heart be restored to received God’s greatest blessings!!!

  95. I just had a huge operation. Today I had staples out and the wound edges have not healed together yet . I am very worried as it is a big wound all down my stomach. Please pray for my healing . Thank you and God bkess

  96. Please pray for my daughter who has an autoimmune disorder. It has already attacked her liver and caused it to fail once. Now it’s attacking her bone marrow. To top it all off, her husband has abandoned her and is trying to turn her children against her. Please keep the entire family in your prayers. Much appreciated.

  97. Please pray for my husband. He is emotionally abusive to myself and our children. I know it is because he is hurting inside. Please pray for understanding for my children, and that my husband will overcome his sorrows. Thank you

    • Ang— you must know that God loves you and your children. I pray a safety for you all in this time. I pray a shield of protection over you all that would stop the hurt. That your hearts would find a refuge in God that allows you to exhale and know HE IS STILL ON THAT THRONE!!! I pray that the demons that your husband is fighting would be released and that they would be sent down to the depths of hell. That healing would happen in him as well!! Stay strong my dear…stay strong.

  98. Please pray for my husband and son to come back to the Lord. Both have been saved in the past but have strayed away from the Lord. Neither are in church at the moment, both are good men but struggle with habit that are not only harmful to their bodies but cause an emotional and financial stress on our family.

  99. My husband is having shoulder surgery this week. Pray for healing for him and my strength to handle everyday life activities while he is incapacitated.

  100. I’ve been walking through turmoil my grandson was born with Charge Syndrome. This has been devastating to our family. And my daughter has been in an abusive marriage that is now ending in divorce & she has two boys ages 3 & 2 years old. Lord give us direction & peace as we travel down this unknown path.

    • I am praying for you Gail and your family and I know God hears! The Lord bless you today with such a strong assurance of His Presence with you!

  101. Please pray for my mother in law. She is in the hospital. We are waiting on test results. I want to be Jesus to her and my family.

  102. I cannot put my prayer request into words, but God knows. Please lift me up in prayer. Thank you and bless you all so very much. I am praying for you as well. And I know our Heavenly Father hears each one.

    • I pray for my sister in Christ Donna this day, Father God you know what she is in need of before she even thought it. I pray that her needs and request are met, let Your will be done in her situation. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen!

      I would like for prayer for my children. I need to pray for mercy instead of justice for a situation my daughter is going through. Thank you for the devotion today that spoke to my spirit! Just as we want justice we need to extend mercy because God gives it freely to us. I pray for my son’s marriage, communication with his wife, my Daughter -in- Love! I pray for a three fold cord for them so their bind will be strong and Godly. I pray that my other daughter finds an affordable apartment that she will not have to worry about being able to pay the rent, being late on the rent or choosing between gas over groceries. I’m thanking you in advance for your prayers!

    • A. I can only imagine how you feel and why me questions you may be asking. Please know that in the midst of it all God is there. Think of Job’s situation, though painful and confusing, he trusted and remained faithful.
      I join you in prayer for God’s will to be understood; for strength to endure the battle and a voice to praise Him through the storm. May the Balm of Gilead be yours today.

  103. I would love to purchase a car. Please help me pray for God’s guidance and provision. Prayer is also needed, so that I will learn to trust God to make a way and to strengthen me, while I deal with a situation that broke me and caused me deep despair. I need to walk in His light.

  104. Please pray that my whole family will be convicted of Jesus and accept Him as their Savior. For healing from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet. In the last several months not very many days have passed without there being one or more injuries or illnesses in the same day. That a legal issue will be settled soon in my favor. For a financial blessing.

  105. Praying…thanking you for prayers for favor that surrounds my co-workers and me as with a shield in Christ. May His favor and beauty rest upon us to bless the work of our hands, yes, establish the work of our hands, in Jesus’ Sweet and Sovereign Name, Merciful and Gracious. Thanks, praise and glory to Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Ropha, Jehovah Jireh in Christ, Head of all principalities and powers!!!

  106. I have a problem with drinking too much. It has become a habit and at times I have no off button. I embarrassed myself on an all girls vacation and have damaged a friendship. I apologized to everyone but have lost their respect and respect for myself.
    I also struggle with depression and this experience has made me dislike myself even more. Please pray for strength and discipline to remove alcohol from my life entirely. I’m in such pain.
    Thank you.

    • I have prayed for you this morning sister. Praying you feel the love of Our Father as you struggle with depression & alcoholism. Dear Lord please help her to identify the enemy during her times of doubt, shame, guilt, and the urge to drink. Praying God shows you the resources & people you need to lean into to begin your road to recovery. Praying you are surrounded in community. Amen.

    • I pray that God fills you with His love as you go through your struggles. Know that His word will provide you with the strength and courage to find the right support to get through. Remember that Joy and peace will come from knowing Him more intimately. Open up His word and find Joy in the promises He gives us. I pray you feel His love today and your victory over this will be a testimony for others.
