Please add my husband, Christian to your prayers! He was laid off from a very good job almost two years ago....right after I signed a contract to teach part time! Ouch, talk about a pay cut! It was all part of God's plan and was, in hindsight, a huge blessing!During the last year or so, he has been working...A LOT--like 18+ hours a day-- with a group of men on a new business venture! They "unveiled" their software yesterday at a conference in Buckhead.....and will be mingling with prospective clients through tomorrow!Word travels fast in the insurance industry ....good or bad! So....my request is that you all pray for God's hand to be on him as they take this next HUGE leap of faith! Thank you so much! Kim J.
Kim I am joining with you in praying for your husband and this venture. I pray that God's favor would be on your husband and that this will take off and in return he will regain pride in his work and in his providing. Keep us posted please!
Father, You know exactly what is going on in this business venture. I pray that all hearts are toward you. I pray that Your will be done and Your Kingdom come here. We thank You for shutting all the doors that should be shut! We thank You for opening the doors that need to be opened! We pray no ungodly alliances...no compromises of Your will and Your plan, LORD! We pray divine favor for all that is of You, and we pray they all give back into the Kingdom that which is Yours, so that the LORD will rebuke the devourer for their sake!!! In Jesus' Name! Amen and Amen.
I thank you girls for prayer agreement for a Muslim Egyptian girl who has previously requested prayer from me on Womenwho Pray fb, and, now has told me a vision that she needed interpretation for. I see the love of God for all the world, just through the vision He gave her, and I believe He has visited her for her to choose Him and her whole household be saved..just like Rahab in the story of Joshua. Glooorrrryyyy!!!!!! Thank You, LORD, in advance for her salvation and her household. Pray also in agreement for 2 precious Christian women..both who are undergoing treatment for a cancer that has returned...we pray God's divine favor in the lives of these 2 saints of God...both who have fought mightily through the 1st battle...and we pray God raise them up to His Glory! Amen and Amen.
OH Sweet Father we are excited to see what you are going to do through this Muslim Egyptian girl! Let there be rejoicing because of their lives committed to You!! AMEN!
Thanking the Lord with you Aunt Teddi for her salvation as well as each member of her household!

She's also in a divorce in process, since the cancer was 1st diagnosed. Strengthen her LORD! that she may care for her own children. In Jesus' Name. Amen and Amen.
Dear Lord I pray that during this time, this person, and all those who love her, will see You. That no matter the outcome, they will see the Light Of You, be drawn to You, so their lives will never be the same.
Agreeing with you Aunt Teddi for divine favor for her! In Jesus Name, Amen. Love, Sarah

Our dearest heavenly Father, we thank you for being with us no matter what storms we have to endure. We ask Lord for your provisions of joy and may you open up our spirits to know that you have plans for our life that only you know the answers. Praying for Christian as he is a man after your heart, and he leads his family as a Godly man, he puts his hope in you, we ask you to grant the desires of his heart for the future of his family. Lifting up Heidi, we come against this cancer in your most precious name Lord, where there needs to be healing of her body as well as a renewing of her desire to trust in you for the road ahead. Thank you Lord for the love you give each of us, and to simply have faith as small as a mustard seed, oh how we praise you and purposely raise our hands to your mighty power and grace over all these pray requests, we give you all the glory and thank you in advance for your covering through the Holy Spirit to soothe anxieties and we set our eyes on you, we pray this in agreement in your holy name. Amen
Lord, God, we pray for Heidi, bless her. Heal her Lord, in Jesus' name. Help her to know You are with her even in the scariest of moments. I pray that You reveal Yourself to her and manifest Your perfect will in her life. I pray that she will have the perfect peace of the Holy Spirit, surrounding her heart and mind. Help others to be strengthened by her hope and faith in You, Lord. Amen.
Please pray for guidance and clarity in my day. I feel pulled in a million different directions, and I have a hard time focusing. My mind never stops with things I need to do! My days just never seem long enough! Thank you Shine girls!
Praying for you! I hope your week got better. Proverbs 3:5-6, is a good one girl, forcing your (our) focus.
Anonymous, praying for you! :) May the Lord fill your mind with His peace and with clarity. May He guide you through your days, making the days run smoother, allowing you to feel more focused. Praying that the Lord would order your steps, and that you would feel a heavy load lifted off of your mind and shoulders. Lord, please bless my fellow SHINE girl with your peace! In Jesus Name, Amen! Love, Sarah
Please pray for my daughter and her husband, she was pregnant with twins and found out last week that one of the precious babies did not make it. Today she has to go back for another ultrasound as there is some concern for the 2nd baby as well. They want children so badly and I pray that God will give them strength to accept his plan for their life. As well, for the rest of our families.

Jennifer was very close to her grandfather. May God give Jennifer peace and comfort her with the assurance that they will be together again some sweet day. My thoughts and prayers are with you my dear friend!Love you!
Jennifer, I am so sorry to hear that your grandfather has passed away, you and your family are in our prayers..heaven has another angel, we love you.

Praying Anonymous! Asking our Lord to hover over her with his presence, guidance, protection, and peace. May she be so tightly woven with Him, that all worries or anxieties about others in her life would fall to the waste side. Praying that the Lord would strengthen her through this, and that she would be a shining star for her friends to see. May they see something beautiful in her, about her, and through her. Asking our Lord that they would be drawn to Him, and want to know more about Him through her. Lord, please give Barbara wisdom and insight into the things of You. Praying that she would continue to draw near to You, and claiming a wonderful, fulfilling relationship with You for her Lord. Let Your will be done in her life. In Jesus Name, Amen! Much love, Sarah
Reminded of our song: Though none go with me...I still will follow! The cross before me...the world behind me!!! No turning back!! No turning back!!!! Glooorrrrryyyy!!!!!
And Father please bring other believers into this woman's life, who will encourage and lift her up. In Jesus' Name.

Please pray for Mares - her cancer has returned and she has been given only a few weeks. She has struggled with her relationship with God and just this past year has made a breakthrough in her faith and trust. Please pray that her faith in Him and trust in Him will not falter during this time. Please pray that He will ease her fears so that she will be at peace when she goes home to Him.
LORD, You know exactly where Mares is in her walk. You are there...Jehovah Shammah...and You give her peace...Jehovah Shalom. Thank You, LORD, that Mares will not leave this earth one cay before her time...by divine appointment. She won't leave here until she's completed her purpose in You. And, when that day comes, and You do call her to come home...she will leave earth easily...in Jesus' Name! Amen and Amen.
In agreement with you Aunt Teddi! Praying for protection from the enemy. May he not steal anything the Lord has given her. Let her faith be strengthened at this time. Father, let Your face shine down upon her, letting her feel your love and your presence. In Jesus Name, Amen! Love, Sarah
Hey, Shinegirls, I've just discussed 2 Samuel a little in the discussions section. Since, there's a lot of prayer requests and we are all wanting the heart of David...I just had to share...come see....
I need help. I don't know how to give it all to the Lord. I so want to be like you girls. I know I will find peace. I just don't know how to do it. Work, children, school homework & activities, housework, bills, exercise(which has taken a back seat), and now going through a divorce - it all seems to take every minute I have. And I only do it all halfway. Where do you find the time? I used to get up early and exercise but I cannot even get my butt out of bed early anymore. If I were to get up and read, I'd fall back asleep. I do read a bible story to my kids each night. I do teach Sunday school. I do attend church services. On the outside I'm okay....but it's the inside that matters and I'm lacking that. I want to be Godly, happy and a cheerleader like Erin Spinks - she's an inspiration. I try but old habits are hard to let go of. Please send a little pray my way. Help Him show me what to do and guide my life. Not only do I need this for me, I also need it for my kids.
praying for you!! YOU are like "us". We are all here struggling daily to know more--seeking for God's face to shine on us--learning daily how to grow in grace and believe in HIS mercies. I am happy, but I struggle every day and seek for God's love to shine on me and through me. My happy comes from the freeing of giving EVERYTHING to him daily. So many times we want to control our lives, to hold on to things that are important, to keep hurt inside of us, to think we can handle the day without help from God. This always fails us. God wants us to "die" to him daily and ask for His guidance in everything we do, not just when things are good. He is always working for our good. We just have to trust in HIM alone. Every single day is a gift and it is the only thing we know for sure that we have. Take the freedom of asking forgiveness daily and thanking Him for new mercies each day. This has really helped me. I would love to talk to you more in depth, if you want. I would love to pray for you personally and encourage you in this life. If not only for you==your kids need a mama who truly believes in the God that wants GOOD poured into her life and out of her life. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! We all fail, we are all on this journey together. No one has it figured out--I just know that God is healer, power, mercy, love, forgiveness, faithful, redeemer, and he is enough:-) firstname.lastname@example.org & cheers for you my friend!!erin:)
“...Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. “ 2 Corinthians 2:9 meant to include this:-) truly believe that when you live a life that is true and out loud, people will see Jesus and they will see HIS strength. I hardly have any secrets, my weakness is shining through in every step of my days, but I BOAST about them so that HE can be strong. I'd love to tell you all about them sweet shine friend <3 love~erin!
Amen Erin! I'm still trying to figure out how to balance my relationship with Him, and I fall short daily! ~Sarah
Anonymous, don't beat yourself up, it sounds like you really have your plate full and pouring over! But I totally understand why you long for more with Him. I beat myself up as well at times, trying to make sure I'm doing all that I feel that I should be doing (reading the Word, praying, etc.). I know without a shadow of a doubt, that if you tell Him what you feel like you are missing, and how and where you can make it work, He will supply. :) My husband reminds me that God would rather have one really good and focused session with me, instead of many hurried ones that I may be trying to squeeze in. I've learned that if a day gets away from me, things come up, and it just gets hard or overwhelming, I can find Him immediately and pick up where we left off. I hope that isn't bad advice, but it's been working for me lately. Sometimes the enemy has a good way of making me feel like I'm not measuring up, but I remind myself that I'm doing the best I can with all of my responsibilities. Even at your lunch break or any other small break in your day, you can get a devotional to read (just one page). I do that some days. Jill has me hooked on seeing the "redbirds" now. Each time I see one I literally stop and just listen in case there is anything He wants to share with me. Sometimes it's just a moment of me thanking Him for being my God and loving me. Sounds silly (my little ones will even say, "Mommy, what is it?", but I try to find moments like that with Him throughout the day. Praying that He will hear your desire to find that time that you want and need, and that He will supply it for you. Lord, ease this sweet momma's load and lift the heaviness from her shoulders. Father, please don't let her carry a burden she wasn't meant to carry. Bless her with peace, guidance, and direction. Help her to find the rhythm she's looking for. Watch over her and her children, and bless them with peace and happiness and joy. Believing for His best for you! :) In Jesus Name, Amen! Love, Sarah
Please pray for Jacob Hollis. He is a student at my daughters high school that just discovered a lump in his leg, which was then diagnosed as malignant, and very rapidly has went bad fast. Do not know all the details, but his legs went numb and the tumor is spreading and has affected his back and he underwent some sort of emergency back surgery today. God knows the details of course and I will try to get more accurate info. His older brother wrestled with my son when they were in high school so I know this family and they are of STRONG FAITH, praise the Lord. Please also lift up the family of Karyn Carson, who past last night. She had Lou Gehrig's disease, diagnosed in 2009. She taught my daughter in 6th grade. She has 2 young daughters and a husband. She was 42. Thank you for praying God's peace & comfort as this family grieves.And to all my SHINE family, please know that you all are in my prayers. I continually take you all to the throne and pray His blessings upon you as we strive to live lives that honor Him daily. I am so humbled by your prayers and feel so privileged to be a part of SHINE that sole purpose is to bring GLORY & ALL DUE PRAISE to Him!!Much love~
I'll be praying Angela! Covering Jacob in the blood and believing for healing in Jesus Name, and for excellent care from his doctors and nurses. Father, please give his doctors wisdom. Lord, speak to this tumor and the sickness it has brought, and remove it from his life in Jesus Name. And asking the Lord to pour out His love on the family of Karyn Carson. May He be their source of strength at this time and always. Praying for comfort in the days to come, and for the Lord's presence to rest on them heavily. Thank you Father. In Jesus Name, Amen. Love, Sarah
I had a few minutes before leaving for work and thought I'd come here. Ya'll make me feel so much better. Knowing that I'm not alone and the suggestions and encouragement. Thank you so much. I immediately started crying and could continue still. But now I have to go reapply my makeup!!
hey, friend. i DAILY pray that God will mold my heart to love HIM the MOST, every single day! HE wants this from us, so I know He helps me daily to think about Him before anything else!Be real with Him, and tell Him your heart. He already knows it anyway. :)Be bold and ask Him to organize your day for you. But, you must be still and listen to Him speak. Often we don't hear Him speak because of the noise around us.YOU are LOVED by HIM! Praying for JOY in your heart!!!! love you so,jill
Sweet sweet momma!!!!! I have been there done that like many many other women. Two things that I have learned in my walk with God 1 Prayer Prayer let me say it again prayer.Talk to God in the car at my desk,while I cook dinner. 2 Do what you can do God will do the rest. Believe it! A while a go I wrote that down and put it on my shelf above the sink. I read it every day and I know that there are not enough hours in the day or enough of me to go around to everybody like I think they need BUT GOD does have enough hours and there is enough of him. You are going to be fine. And I pray. Lord I come to you with love in my heart for this mom give her strenghth to get though each day one day at a time. Bring her help Lord. Be with her in her these times please pick her up and carry her though it. In The name of your son AMEN
LORD, I lift up these prayer needs in Jesus' Name! You Jehovah Jireh are the provider of time and space. You will give the anonymous above that has asked us how...and Erin has explained...exactly what she needs because we are asking...and You say where any 2 of you agree as touching anything on earth we ask our Heavenly Father and He gives it to us. It is Your will that she have time for all that You desire in her life. Thank You for prioritizing her life, in Jesus' Name. It's amazing what I don't need to do that I thought was important...and how You redeem the time...If I give You 1st place in my life.I pray for the young man with the malignant tumor...We speak death to the malignancy and life to Jacob...In Jesus' Name. We speak to that mountain and say be thou removed and do not doubt in our hearts but believe that we have what we say...when we say it! Thank You LORD for You blood flowing through Jacob! Thank You Holy Spirit for hovering over him and breathing life into his body. We speak good cells over bad cells in Jesus' Name. Thank You LORD that we expect a good report. We declare that Jacob will live and not die and declare the works of the LORD. We declare that he will not leave one minute before his divine appointment, LORD, in Jesus' Name! While he's on this journey, visit him and let him see Your Glory in Jesus' Name! We know that he will never be the same when he sees your Glory...and he will preach it to the nations...Praise God...Amen and Amen. And, LORD, for Karyn Carson's family, we speak comfort as only You, Holy Spirit can give...and peace that only the Prince of Peace can give...the peace that passes all understanding. In Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen.
Thank you Sarah, Aunt Teddi and all others in prayer. Update on Jacob...the surgery will actually take place in the morning lasting 6-8 hours to repair his spine from tumor damage. He presently cannot move his legs so praying to regain movement/feeling. A ct scan was done today to determine if cancer is in pelvis, chest, or abdomen...no news yet. He is a 10th grader at my daughter's school. Thank you for constant prayer for this young man and his precious family.
Angela, praying that the Lord has this surgery in His hands. Asking the Lord to heal His spine, and guide the surgeon's hand. Praying that he will regain movement and feeling, and praying that this child is covered from head to toe in the precious blood of the Lamb. Lord, please give his parents and loved ones peace and walk them through this time. May the ct scan show no cancer anywhere else. May cancer exit his body in Jesus Name. Comfort him Lord during and after surgery, and let him be comfortable with no pain. We thank you in advance Father! In Jesus Name, Amen. Much love, Sarah
Mostly life has gotten to be too much, there seems to be no light at the end of this tunnel. God hears me, and I need your intercessory prayers, love each of you.
ANONYMOUS, your words have pierced my heart! there is light, sweet girl. hang on, and keep moving forward. like Lisa said today, ask God to usher you through this quickly. this is the part where i wish we could all be face to face sometimes and hand in hand. life is so hard sometimes, it is! try not to look to tomorrow, but focus on today and the blessings around you. even if they are hard to find right now.HE will NOT abandon you, EVER! ask the Lord to help you filter out the noise, and focus in on His voice of calm and peace alone.i kept coming to this as i read my bible this morning, i think it's for YOU!Psalm 103: 1 Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. 2 Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.i love you, sweet sister in Christ!!!
Anonymous, praying and believing for a mighty breakthrough in your life. May the Lord break down any strongholds that are hindering that light at the end of the tunnel for you, and may chains begin to fall where you feel bound or hopeless. Speaking His peace over you, His love, and His hope. Agreeing with Jill, there is light! The enemy wants to shut you down right now, but don't let him. He wants you to believe there is no way out, and he wants you to feel defeated. Don't believe those lies. "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28 Don't let go of your faith, because He is faithful to watch over you! Praying for blessings to come your way!!! In His Love, Sarah "Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired,and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
I need prayers for my sweet Daddy. He went in for a simple surgery but it has turned into much more! I pray that God will continue to give him the strength he needs. Thanks ladies!
Dear Father we pray this very moment for Tabitha's Daddy, comfort him, strengthen him and give him your everlasting peace. We lift him up to you along with Tabitha and her family and we are thanking you already for your healing power of love and reassurance, we ask for an awareness of the nurses and doctors that they see that You Lord are the healer and give them Your wisdom in caring for this precious man. We ask your will be done on earth as it is in heaven, Amen. "Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to Me, and I will answer you." Love, Ladona Jill's Mom
Agreeing with Mrs. Ladona! May healing take place for him from head to toe! In Jesus Name, Amen. Love, Sarah
