  2. Please join me in prayer for my sweet, dear, Kate.

    I am praying for her to be company to the miracle of pregnancy and motherhood. And, in the needing of this miracle, that she would learn the wonder working power of Christ.

    Lord, please grant her this sacred gift. Thank you that when all else fails, we can only look to You. We trust you Lord, we ask for this babe and we thank You in advance.

    In Jesus name, Amen.

  3. Praying for Kate, Beka. <3 Lord, bless her precious womb to carry life--that is only a gift from You, Father.

    Also, praying for each SHINE girl today. Some of you have been with us since day one (January 1st) and others are just joining today. Whatever the case, I am asking the Lord Jesus to cover you in His anointing, love, mercy, grace, and favor.

    May each of you feel His big arms holding you today and everyday as you get up to face the day.

    He loves you so much and desires us to be in His word and encourage each other along the way.

    Praying that God will reveal Himself to you in a special way today and this week.

    Look for Him, girls!

    thankful for you,

    jill

  4. Thank you all for your prayers last week for my niece, Logan, who had her appendix removed on Friday. The surgery went very well, and she was able to come home from the hospital on Saturday evening. She has a lot of pain around the incisions, but should be back at school on Thursday and back on the volleyball court in two weeks. Praying that each of you have a wonderful week!

      Praying Mrs. Ladona! Asking our Lord to direct her path and light her way! Praying that He would fulfill all that you listed above. Asking that He would cover and protect her, and send His angels to have charge over her. May His light shine on her in all she does, and may He give her the desires of her heart as she seeks Him and His plan and purpose for her life. "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." Jeremiah 29:11 Love, Sarah

    4. Agreeing with all above for divine guidance for Amberlee. I pray God is a light unto her path and a lamp unto her feet and that He will guide her and speak to her continuously as she chooses forks in the roads ahead. God add His blessings to overflow is my prayer for her. God bless the 'grandmother's' heart too!

    Hey girls. Please pray for my sister in law. She is not saved and we are all worried about her. She has fallen into a deep, deep depression and we are so very concerned about her. PLEASE lift her up to the Father. We are all desperate for a miracle in her life. She has children that need her to be well. Thank you so much!

      Praying for your sister in law. Asking the Holy Spirit to begin to work in her heart, praying that she hears the soft whisper that will offer hope and help and deliverance. "From the Lord comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people." Psalm 3:8 Claiming right now, that she will be one of Your people Lord. "For He will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death. He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight." Psalm 72:12-14 We are believing you Father for a miracle. Asking You to speak to mountains and have them move in the name of Jesus. Anything that is not of you that is oppressing her we ask that it leave, and the Holy Spirit takes its place. Surround her with your love and your hope at this time, as well as her family. Comfort them Lord and carry them through this difficult time, teaching them and showing them all along the way that You are God and You are enough. In Jesus Name, Amen. Love, Sarah

    I want to pray that I can truly let go of my current situation- fully giving it over to God. I want to have FAITH like a child. I remember what that feels like, and I miss it. Right now, I need to continue to grow my relationship with Christ, and follow His direction for my life. I am now a single mom trying to rid myself of a tumultuous marriage. Please pray that I seek God's direction for my life and not my own.

      Shannon, I'm praying for you! Praying for the Lord to fill you with His strength, giving You what you need to hand it all over to Him. Asking that the Lord would bless you with faith like that of a child, and give you the desires of your heart. Praying, believing, and hoping for the BEST that God has for you. May the good Lord protect you, give you the mind of Christ, and peace that overflows. May He carry you through this time, speak to you, and show you the way He would have you to go. Praying that you would hear His voice clearly. Praying for peace and protection for you and your babies, and asking that He would fill you with all the love and strength you need being a single momma. May He send his angels to minister to you, your babies, and to be in every room of your home watching over you, in your car when you drive, at work, and anywhere else you may be. Much love to you!!! I thought I recognized that sweet name when I opened up this page, I love you tons, and I'm believing for God's best for you. Love you! Sarah Frachiseur (Keep looking up, that's where miracles come from. :) <3

    2. I pray that you draw so near to Him, that everyone around can only see Jesus! Pray the Word...listen to Word praise music...hear and heed only Godly counsel...I pray that you hear your Shepherd so clearly that you turn on a dime if need be...that you lean left..lean right...move like a dance partner with her Love!! Families are under such attack...and we must place ourselves where we can hear and see...the enemy is after all of the marriages...Jeremiah tells us that the crying and mourning women are called to stand against death that has entered to get the children...the death includes destruction, division, divorce, and at least 8 tentacles of this octopus. I pray Holy Spirit that Shannon be sooo aware of You in her life..Be Still ...we hear You say...and know...that I AM God...

  9. agreeing in prayer with Sarah over you, sweet Shannon. may God bless you and anoint you with that faith like a child that your heart desires. "you will seek Him and find Him, when you seek Him with all of our heart." one of my favorite verses of all time.

    keep seeking Him, sweet girl. He loves you and He wants to take care of you during this difficult time. look to Him alone to fill your needs.

    praying and believing,

    I am struggling with the fear of disappointing others. Even to the point that I know I'm right and it's the best decision for me, yet the other person's emotions still make me feel like I'm wrong. I have always been bad about being a people pleaser. I feel guilty if others aren't happy, and feel the need to fix it (even when I know I'm in the right). I want to get to the place where the Father's approval is all I need. I need confidence and peace in this area. Please pray for me, thank you!

    1. Dear Anonymous who is struggling with the fear of disappointing others. I recommend the Breaking Free study by Beth Moore (updated edition 2009) and also the book "Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Both have helped me try to break free from negative self talk, constant guilt and the need to always please others. I am praying for you!

    2. kelly is right on. both of those books are phenomenal. i too, suffer from all that you mentioned. i am getting better, but tend to fall off track a lot of times too.

      in the end, if we are pleasing the Lord, that is all that matters. others may not understand, but God will cover that. He always does.

      praying for you to look to Him, and Him alone. He will instruct you and guide you down the right path.

      much love to you!

      Thank you girls! I will definitely look into those books, they sound like exactly what I need. :) And thank you for the encouragement. It's something I need to deal with once and for all. I don't want to pass this trait to my little ones. The enemy has a great way of beating my brains out in this area, but I know God is fully capable of nipping this in the bud. Thank you again. :)

    2. Lord you O God are more than able to save this sister in law and her family. Thank you for the heart strings that love her. I pray for daily confrontation from you for the SIL that the holy hounds of heaven will be forever in front of her, behind her over her and under her and she have no rest, even as she runs for you, cause circumstances to turn around that she runs to you. Lord I pray for those who hold her dear in their hearts that now that they have thrown their anchor on your anchor, that they will stand still and know that YOU are God, that you've 'got this', that you hear them and are moving even now on behalf of their plea. Cause a new trust in their hearts and a confidence in pure faith of your love and your desire that no, not one, should perish. In Jesus name Amen

  16. Please pray for our fellow SHINE sister, Angela. She emailed me because she has trouble posting....her surgery went well last week. However, the doctor has the pathology report from something that was removed and wants her to come in his office to discuss. She is concerned that they would not give the news over the phone. She has 3 children, ages 12, 8 and 5.

    Please ask the Lord for the doctor to give her good news! Let her body be completely healed in the name of Jesus.

    Thank you, SHINE.

    Please pray for my daughter. She is experiencing major anxiety about school. She is having trouble staying focused and is keeping her emotions bottled up. This week, she has had some outbursts because of these emotions building up. We are going to see a doctor next week for the anxiety and attention concerns. We are assuring her that we will work through this, and God will restore! We need clarity for the best path for her in regards to how to help her and school choice.

    Father, I pray for anonymous that you will quiet her spirit that she may hear your still small voice leading her in this difficult time. Make her path clear, give her discernment and your wisdom. Thank you father that you love her daughter so much and that you have a perfect plan for both of them. Thank you that you are using this to build your kingdom and that you are in control. Father this overwhelming anxiety and emotional outbursts are not of you and I ask in your powerful name that you will cast them out and give her a spirit of peace and joy. Father if there is anything deep down bothering her that she needs to work through I ask that you would bring it up and help her work through it. If there is a chemical imbalance I ask that you restore it to normal function. Father thank you for clearing her mind and restoring her focus. Please father protect her self esteem and repair any damage done. Use this to draw her and her entire family closer to you for your glory. Thank you for going before her and preparing where she is to go to school. Thank you for hand picking her teachers and peers. Thank you for hand picking the physicians she will see, for giving them wisdom and for using them to direct them down your path. I ask father that this weekend they will rest in your loving arms being renewed and refreshed. Thank you father for this family and the great and awesome plan you have or them. In your precious name I pray, Amen.

    Please pray for my 7 year old son this weekend. I know this may sound trivial, but nothing is to trivial with God. This is his first weekend away without us. He is going hunting with grandaddy. It is exciting that grandaddy is actually taking him and there are others going I do not know. Please pray for his protection physically, mentally, and emotionally. Even more that they will see his precious child like faith and love for Jesus. That his testimony and relationship with Jesus may challenge each of them. I pray they will grow closer together during this time and that grandaddy might realize he has some great grandkids to spend time with. Lastly, that I will leave him in Jesus's arms and not worry, but be at peace and enjoy my time with my other children.

    We really need some prayers for Grandmaw Fowler and all of the family, it's hitting everyone really hard with Paw-Paw's death. It's so sad, and she is so broken right now. That says a lot for she is a strong woman of faith and everything. She said they were two peas in a pod. They would have been married 65 years this coming December and that is a life time. We are all truly comforted by the fact we know he's in Heaven because he was such a Godly man, but it doesn't make the pain any less.

    1. Father, I lift up this precious saint and ask You to heal her heart. Her life-partner, LORD!! Oh, how she needs her family to need her and to spend much time with her. Mama faced this, LORD, nearly 65 years, when Daddy went home to be with You. Hover Holy Spirit bringing Your life into this family! Comfort as only You can do! Bring that peace that passes all understanding that only You the Prince of Peace, Jesus, can give. We bind grief..it is a wicked and fowl spirit that comes to take others...especially the spouse. We thank You that the children and grandchildren will keep a watch over her and stand by her and let her know it is not over. That she will be with him soon, but how much they need her and how blessed they are that they did not lose them both.

      Thanks Amee for reminding me that I had that to share ...to give .. to you. I'm honored to be allowed to pray for you and the others on this wall. Love you!
