Thank you, Beka. We owe so much to our Heavenly Father and to all the men and women who have served in the Armed Forces protecting our freedoms at home. Praise God for all of His many blessings and we pray for all those serving and for the families of all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf. God bless America.
Amen!

Please pray for a friend of mine that is a single mother raising her young child. Her ex is in the picture, but my friend is very lonely. I pray every day that God will provide her a life mate. She is still young. I ask that you pray for the Lord to be preparing a man for her that will take good care of her. Thank you praying ladies.

A young mother with cancer needs your prayers please. She goes to a friends church. Pray for total healing of her body.

Anonymous said...

May that be done in Jesus Name. In His time, may the mate that He has chosen come into her life. When their paths cross, may that man be hand picked by our Father and be fully equipped with all that she needs. Father, please cover her and her child now and always. Guide them and lead them, and be their provider, all that they need! May you even be with her ex, leading and guiding him in the way he should go. While she waits Father for this special person in her life, may she be filled with You, may you accomplish all that you need to through her and in her. Help her and her child through this transition in their lives, please bring them peace and joy. May the areas that they may be lacking in be filled, and may they be overflowing and abundant and blessed by You. Thank you Father for watching over this special friend, her child, and this situation. We give praise to you in advance for the works You will do. Thank you Father, in Jesus Name, Amen. With hope, love, and expectancy! Sarah

Anonymous, praying and believing for complete healing for this young mother. May she know in her heart that you are capable of taking care of this for her. "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us," Ephesians 3:20 May her faith be strengthened and kicked into overdrive, resulting in more energy, healing from head to toe, abundant peace, and victory and life. May all doubt leave her mind, may any lies from the enemy be erased by our Father's mighty hand, and may His spirit overflow in her mind, home, and life. Father, please be with her family also. Speak to her children, and let them hear Your secure voice, causing them not to fret. Please cover her, her family, and her home in Your healing blood. And give her doctors and nurses supreme wisdom. Let the work of God be displayed in her life. Thank you Lord for watching over her, drive the enemy out with Your light. In Jesus Name, Amen. Love, Sarah

Rebekah Hudgins Vepraskas said...

Agreeing with Mary, Terri and Sarah for a miracle of healing in this women's heart, mind, body and soul. We bind cancer in all forms. We speak light and health to her body and we speak death and darkness to this cancer. God bless this women and heal her in Jesus' name, Amen.

Rebekah Hudgins Vepraskas said...

I have a new job (3 months in) and I am still trying to figure out what the best schedule is for me (for my family, financially and logistically.) I think there is a balance and I am not sure I can find it! It's a lot of new variables to balance and I can beat myself up over the details and how I am managing them.

Thank you so much for your prayers!

Please pray for myself and my husband. Our business is doing well and we got a big downpayment on a job this week. I need prayer for financial wisdom. Also prayer for him and the shop Gods touch on their work. We have been so blessed by the Lord the last couple of years he has really pulled us out of a pit. I don't ever want to go back. I know without my God we can not complete this project. But with Him we can do great things. Also prayer for my stepchildren real mother she did not raise them but as been sober for over a year but just found out she has cancer. Please pray for her and our kids this is so hard for the oldest.

Rebekah Hudgins Vepraskas said...

I pray for you, sister, that God would continue to bless your business and prosper your lives and at the same time He would give your family an overabundance of wisdom and foresight to honor His blessings.

I pray for the mother of your step children and this heartbreaking news. God heal her, we pray, strengthen her and intervene in her heart, mind and spirit. As you renew her body, please renew her soul and manifest yourself in her life. I pray that through this valley, God is glorified in her life and that this witness brings peace to her children. God, make this into good, as only You know how. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.

With Love!
Rebekah

Rebekah Hudgins Vepraskas said...

Jilly,

I SOOOO know the feeling! I pray that the Lord gives you wisdom, peace and guidance through every twist and turn of this journey. I pray that you will see Him and find His way. I pray that you can focus on gratitude as you learn your new role and that the Lord will give you all of the stamina, time, strength, balance and margin you need to be the mother, wife and SHINE leader you desire to be. God bless you, cloak you in His armor and lead you through this. Make this such a blessing, Lord, that we know it could only come from You!
In His name and for His sake we pray, Amen.

With Love!
Rebekah

Rebekah Hudgins Vepraskas said...

Oh Lord, bless Erin Spinks, we pray in Jesus' name. Thank you for her God given gift to lead. Give her wisdom and grace as she makes her way through this new territory. Thank you for this path, Lord, please make it straight. Give Erin the voice and the endurance she needs to proclaim your name, every day. God bless the children and the mothers and every family involved. Prosper each of them and give them harmony, safety and peace as they fellowship together. Lord, go before Erin and prepare the way she should walk in. In Your name and for Your sake, Amen!

With love!
Rebekah

Terri Abbott said...

I ask for prayer, SHINE sisters, in this new walk and layer the Lord is working in my life. I do not want to miss direction or instruction in His performing all that He desires in me and my family. At the beginning, as I lay it all at the foot of the cross, I asked that He be glorified and that if He was with me I would walk where He asked and bring my household with me, whether thru flood, fire, famine or feast. He is DOING it! I have learned to trust, trust and trust and I have found Him to be so faithful and incredible. 'Just a closer walk with Thee, grant it Jesus is my plea'. I stand amazed at Jesus, the power, the love, the presense of Him is more than I have words for.
I pray for Rebekah in her new job that you will place her at the exact time and place for You to perform that which you desire in her, her family and lives of those she touches. I ask that you continue to pour out thru her from the deposits you have made in her and she rule and reign in heavenly places as she learns to make the enemy your footstool. I pray for fresh anointing as you have been teaching her for over a year now, Lord, she has not wavered from seeking you. I pray she continue to find favor with You as you take her to even new places in You and use the gifts and talents you placed in her long ago. It is the timing of You Lord and her willing heart that has opened the door in her life for this season. Esther said 'for such a time as this' in your Kingdom. Thank you for her.
I ask for Jill to be given your precise balance for her life and as she pours out from the well of life feeling your heart in hers, that you fill her up again and again. Thank you for the mantle of anointing that rest upon her. I pray a hedge and guard over her and her family. I pray that you continue to amaze her with your will for her life and that as she learns to embrace change that she do it without fear yet work in her that she runs to the change with excited expectation of what you have for her. Bless her and I thank you for her open and willing heart.
I pray for Erin that you will anoint her words as she encounters these camp people. Thank you for her willingness and courage to step out. Go before her Lord and prepare the hearts of the people to receive the anointing she will speak. Be upon her words and in her heart as she is your vessel performing dicipleship amoung those that hunger and thirst.
I pray for Anon that you continue this work in her life and in the life of her family. She has trusted you, tasted of you and does not want to look back. She has put her hand to plow and is foraging ahead. Go with her and teach her to hear you (your sheep will know your voice) as she is open and waiting. You will perform that good work which you have started and I thank you for it Father. Bless the children with peace and understanding and cause the mother to come to know YOU as she comes out darkness, show her your light and save her soul. Thank you for the heart of Anon that reaches every corner, show her the 'great things' you have for her and give her strength and wisdom as she steadily walks to YOU.
I bless you this day Lord, you are worthy to receive praise, honor and glory. You are holy and righteous, there is none like you. We all love you and thank you for this 'waterfall of the Holy Spirit' (thank you Rebekah) and as we stand here under it and look to you, go with us and we will return rejoicing and thanking you again and again. Thank you for the love that is resident in each heart, let it be lifted to YOUR love and may it accomplish what you desire it to in each of us. In Jesus name,

Terri Abbott said...

Amen in agreement. Give this mother of the step children insight to know that she can give this gift to her children, if she has not been there before for them, she can be there now. I bind any guilt or unworthiness in her in Jesus name and I loose a spirit of perseverance in her to confront the battles she encounters and your strength in great portion to conquer that which the enemy seeks to destroy. In Jesus name.

Received your special blessing this morning Lord, with the assignment of me,and Terri being prayer partners together. Thank you Lord for all she is and does in Your precious name, as you know we have a long history together and though we weren't spiritually close when we were younger, it is amazing how you work and have planned for us to be joined for the purpose of lifting each other up in your divine and Holy name, thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus. May she overflow with an out pouring of reassurance in whatever she is dealing with, I ask Father for a miracle to occur in every detail of her life. Give her peace in her heart and mind and continuance of her mighty faith in You, provide strength that will lead her to victory as only you are the starter and the finisher of our lives and we claim Your Holy power to be manifested daily and minute by minute we praise Your sweet name. Thank you for Terri being a partner and a prayer warrior as we pray side by side for Your people.Amen Ladona

Father, I agree and pray for this step-mother and her husband as they pray and are there for the children and their birth Mom, in Jesus' Name. Thank You, LORD, for the heart of this woman to as for prayer for the first wife!! So God!!! In Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen. Thank You for Your blessing on this family and the business ...and we declare they will hear the voice of their Shepherd and heed what He says and never listen/hear/heed the voice of the stranger...never again returning to that pit!!! in Jesus' Name!!! Amen and Amen!!

Women Who Pray said...

Standing under the waterfall, LORD, the overflow of Your goodness and mercy and grace. I ask prayer for my marriage, as I end the 43rd year and enter the 44th...tomorrow in my anniversary. I am married to my high school sweetheart...and he is my God-given gift...my diamond in the rough...now shined and glowing. I pray for health and healing to his body...a miracle LORD for his damaged ankle and for all that ails him due to that fall so many years ago. I've never seen anyone work as hard as he does...his relaxation is working at home or one of the other houses. I pray health and healing for him and me both as we continue this adventure together. I ask that you pray for my sons...very precious to both of us...been through a lot themselves...I pray for health and healing of spirit, soul and body...the LORD knows exactly...but prayer agreement with you is a blessed thing shinegirls...and I'm in!! May each one of them be the leaders of their daughters and wives...that is needed to get there through the troubled times headed our way...this nation's way...and I pray that I be bold as I'm supposed to be in blowing the trumpet the LORD's given me to blow in Zion...and not 2nd-guess when I'm bold and when I'm silent...just know that the LORD is in control. I ask wisdom for all those I pray for...that I pray exactly as led of the LORD, and not hold back or ever say what He has not said. I ask that I obey always rather than sacrifice...for the LORD loves obedience...and He honors it above and beyond what I could have ever dreamed. I ask for wisdom as we are preparing for our new leg of this walk...Tim will retire in the next 1-2 years or so...and, we do need wisdom and guidance that only our Shepherd can provide...we pray ears to hear and eyes to see clearly. The Word says where 2 or 3 of us agree He's in our midst...we pray as Stormie Omartian says in one of her prayers in The Power of the Praying Wife...that the LORD be in our midst so that we will agree about all things. When I stay in my God-given position as wife...and don't step out from under my covering...I've seen miracles...maybe not immediately but always!!! God is Faithful!! When He tells us to do it, He also pours out His power on us that we are enabled to do it!! We just have to be willing and step out...then Voila!!! Beka talked about sounding dorky...and I believe she got that gene from me...lol!!! It's hard to know when I'm praying and when I'm talking...but the LORD is here with us now and listening...and I'm blessed to be part of you shinegirls...and to be under the waterfall!! Love you!! <3 I'm headed to my pink house in just a few minutes...Thanks LORD for all the shinegirls! Thanks LORD for this page to pray and agree on. Thanks for You have called it forth and we are Your friends!!! Love You, LORD, best of all!!!!

Pepper Helms said...

Ladies, please pray for me to have victory over my weight. It's the one area in my life that I cannot seem to have control over. I do not like exercising - I do it in spurts - do really good and feel good and then something comes along to throw me off track and I get lazy. I eat good 90% of the time, but the other 10% is enough to keep me from success in this area. Even when I'm active, I can't seem to lose weight or lose very little. It's frustrating to trust God for EVERYTHING else but not give Him this part of my life or at least go through these vicious cycles. I don't need advice on how to lose weight or any product endorsements. I've read e'thing out there - just pray for me to have the dsicipline and fortitude to do what I need to do. Thanks ladies:)

Women Who Pray said...

I agree with you! Amen and Amen.

Terri Abbott said...

And the apples are falling close to the trees! We KNEW Ladona that God was/is faithful and 'you shall know them by their fruit'. LOOK AT YOURS! Awesome. You have been a loyal faithful mother to the two girls you have, now you are planting seeds in those precious babies! Thank you Lord for the opportunity Ladona and I have to share in the enjoyment of our fruit and that God's promises are yea and amen! He will NOT forsake us and our children 'shall not beg bread'... HE IS FEEDING THEM ALL! Hallelujah! Lord wrap your arms around Ladona today, let the warmth and comfort of the Holy Spirit just love her, bless her and shower her with your grace. Let her heart soar with the eagles and let your truth set her free and free indeed. Thank you for her and that no matter how many times she and I fall, we can pick each other up and you will help us to help each other. I love her and am grateful for her, her encouragement in my life and her love for me, mine and the example she sets with her love for her own. Amen.

Dear Lord, please bless Rebekah with Your peace in this area. I pray that You are the Master of her calendar, her days and weeks, her home, her time with her husband and children, their money, and her work Lord.

We trust You and believe in You, in Jesus Name, Amen! Much love, Sarah

Let her feel You leading and guiding her, and giving her the strength to face and accomplish each task set out before her. As she always says, "The joy of the Lord is my strength!" :) Praying You are guiding her and protecting her around each and every corner, and that Your mighty hands are all she needs to balance everything above. In Jesus Name, Amen. Love, Sarah

Agreeing with each one of you for this couple, their business, and the mother and her children. Bless them with Your wisdom and insight Lord with their business and finances. Please allow their business to remain under You, and place a hedge of protection around it and them.
We ask that what the enemy meant for bad, you would turn to good Lord with the children's mother. Heal her body Lord, bring her peace. Please don't let her leave this Earth without knowing how rich, good, and awesome You are. Protect her children, please guard their minds in Jesus Name. Help them through this difficult time. Be that peaceful voice that comforts and soothes their fears and anxieties. Thank you for watching over this family. With Love, Sarah

Melissa Martin said...

SHINE sisters - please know that I have read everything above and hold it close to my heart and in daily prayer. I wish I could find the beautiful words to post under each comment specifically, but that is not my gift. I do pray over each of you and for each of you in specific concerns. I especially pray for Jill as she leads us in this ministry.
I ask for your prayers in the area of patience and self control. We are moving in 2 weeks so I am juggling the kids out of school and the need to "get things done." Summers have always been a little challenging with one of my boys and we're not off to a stellar start thus far :(

Hi Ladies!!

As of today I am a college student again!! :) I am very excited...and a little nervous - I have never been more certain that God is all over this! I am in school again by God's will only...trust me when I tell you I did not come up with this on my own!

Tomorrow I start my Chemistry lab and lecture....from the looks of things online it is going to be a really really tough class - I have been out of school for 18 years, so it was going to be diffcult no matter what. but having looked at the syllabus - I am nervous that it is even going to be harder than I imagined in the coming 7 week semester.....

Please pray for me in this class - For me to achieve what I have set out to do I must not only pass my all my classes but I must excel to be admitted into the study program of PTA(physical therapist assistant)next fall.

THANK YOU!!! Love you girls!!

Love you BIG, Angie~

Angela Crowe said...

Sam! How exciting to be pursuing a career and to be back in school! We are actually on similar paths. I just became a college student again last Monday as I am FINALLY pursuing my dream of owning a hair salon. And, I love how you say it is only by God's will that this is happening for you...the story of how making this happen for me is ONLY BY GOD'S doing. Lord, I pray your favor on Sam as she begins her course studies. May she not become discouraged or have any doubts about her capabilities of being a student again after so many years out of school. I pray that you help her balance all she has going on as a single mom. Heavenly Father, i pray Sam excels in school and is admitted into the pta program with ease. Thank you Lord for Sam and for her mighty strong witness that she boldy proclaims. I pray your abundant blessings upon her and her precious daughter. In Jesus name, Amen.

Angela Crowe said...

Terri, I hear your voice whenever I read your posts and they are soothing sonnets to my ears. Your prayers are so powerful and so encouraging to us all. It is truly an honor to serve and be a part of this SHINE ministry with so many Godly women such as yourself. And I could never fully express the comfort that comes when you pray for me, my mom, and my sister. Girl, I KNOW you have a hotline straight to the His throne! I am thankful to call you friend and love you and your family to pieces. I pray the Lord pours His blessings out on you and continues to give you that discerning spirit, head full of wisdom, and a heart that is full of love for others. You are a blessing.

Agreeing with Sarah (and all of above) that you will add this detail for Jill with all the confirmation she loves because You first loved her!

Terri Abbott said...

Praying for you dear sweet girl and asking that you find favor with our Lord in that you have stepped out in courage to better yourself. Strength and power and might is what I ask in Jesus name all directed by the Holy Spirit as you seek, YOU WILL FIND, it is His active and living Word. May it all rise up to greet you as you navigate, by His hand, thru that which is to come. Lord I ask that each day be secured step by step and layer by layer for this handmaiden, work in her that which you desire which is always more than we can 'ask or think' and that with each step her confidence and courage grow even more. SHINE Your light thru her Lord. In Jesus name. Amen

Terri Abbott said...

I just feel led to say; I receive and I am thankful, for each and every heart that loves me here and those I don't see or hear, I am thankful for also. Girls, part of healing and/or walking in the Spirit is receiving. I have not been good at being a 'victim', I want to 'fix' things. So I sincerely receive your love and prayers and kind words and I love you all back so big. I am so thankful for your support and for holding my hand. I NEED THIS! There, I said it (smiley face) and we will all learn, be led and walk together. God is SO good to give us each other. Bless this day Lord for all that seeks your face on behalf of one another. We praise YOU and give YOU the glory for this wonderful work you are doing in this SHINE ministry. Let us all be divinely led as we listen to hear you and YES, Lord, to see you. We hunger and thirst, let us be filled with you. Amen

Beka, praying that as you have made a plan, God...Your Shepherd...directs your steps. Love this scripture, LORD, in Proverbs 16...so precious to us!! You LORD, as Beka hears Your voice, LORD, she will step out...with Kingdom priority...and You will direct her and redeem all the time spent on Kingdom Work. In Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen

For Ian's sake, and Kelly's and the LORD Jesus' sake...we ask for a little one for this family, in Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen. Thanks in advance, LORD!! :)

Sam, I went back to school after being a homemaker for 23 years. I was 39 when I entered the program at Ga. State Univ. to be a teacher. I graduated magma cum laude.(sp?) I entered the classroom in August of 1991 as a Middle School teacher...I was 41. I later received my Masters from the University of Georgia, and I recived my Education Specialist degree from Brenau. When I first decided to go back to school, my hubby thought I'd lost it...but my Mama was my greatest cheerleader!! Woo Hoo for you!!! I pray the LORD anoint you with His Spirit of discipline...of focus..of drive to reach the mark...to complete what you are beginning now. I'm cheering for you, girl!!! Woo Hoo!!! Woo Hoo!!!! <3 :)!!

Ladies -

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! I have to tell you that God showed up in a mighty way and ANSWERED my prayer in a way I would have never expected or thought could happen!! HE IS AWESOME!!!

So I will try to be brief....but I want you guys to hear what happened this morning :)

First you have to know that I posted my prayer request last night a little freaked out by the syllabus that was posted and the reviews I was able to find on the professor of my Chemistry lecture class. So I posted my request here, prayed A LOT myself :). Turned off my computer and went to bed at 11 PM.

I woke this morning....5:30 AM, calm. Made coffee, read the SHINE post, and was led to Phillippians 4:6-7...so I decided or thought "ok, God I get it. I am not going to worry, I know you have this handled."

As I was getting ready I thought maybe I should just check out the class schedule...if this professor/class is a bad as I feel it is going to be maybe I can transfer into the other offered Chemistry class. So onto the computer I go - the other class has room according to the college website, the reveiws of this other professor are really good & say he is helpful. So make the decision - I will go to class as planned, check out the professor I have, and if I don't feel positive about it I will switch to the other offered class.

I go back to the class offering page to write down the class number in the event I will need it in the afternoon. And BAM, I notice the professor for my class has been CHANGED since LAST night. I now have the professor I was planning to switch too... You guys....I just sat and looked at this for a few minutes...I was sure I had not had enough coffee and was reading it wrong. Still not convinced I check the system the school uses to post syllabus, course notes, etc. and YEP the professor for the course CHANGED since I was on there LATE LAST NIGHT.

On the way to school - He says to me...."Samantha, follow me, do your best and know that I have your back!" :)

The course is still Chemistry and it will still be diffcult. BUT I now have a professor that is more seasoned, helpful/available (per reviews) and has a reasonable syllabus (quizzes each class, homework, 4 exams and a final)

I am in AWE!!! :) and SO EXCITED!! so thank you all so much for lifting me in prayer!! (hope this made sense...haha)

Love you ladies!!

Sam

Please pray for my aunt has just been diagnosed with SLAC arthritis in both of her hands. It is at a stage 2 and there is concern that her wrists could collapse. She was seeing the doctor today to talk about treatment and options. Thank you!

Agreeing with you Kelly that His will would be done and that it will be in His perfect timing! May He watch over your womb and prepare it for new life. May He be with you, Ian, and your husband and bless your time together. I loved meeting you at the tea and loved meeting Ian too! He is precious! Believing for His divine work to be done in your lives! In Jesus Name, Amen. Love, Sarah

WOW! Let me say that I have read and am lifting up each of these prayer concerns and like Melissa wish that I could post as graciously under each and every post. Pepper, to say I can relate to what your going through is an UNDERSTATEMENT!!!! I know exactly how you feel and I am lifting you up!!!! I am very honored that Jill would even ask me to be a part of this precious group of women, I will do my best to be diligent in this endeavor. That being said, please pray for my sweet sister-in-law, Paige she has been diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease, after 2 years of extensive testing. I do not know much about it except that it is sort of like a Muscular Dystrophy. It is genetic and sometimes hereditary so my niece & nephew may need to be tested as well. They are in the process of figuring out which treatments to use for her. She is only 40 years old and has been in a tremendous amount of pain for a very long time. Please pray for her and her family. Thank you all so much!!! I look forward to meeting all of you in person real soon :)

I posted a few weeks ago regarding my marriage being in crisis. I thank all of you wonderful ladies for keeping our family in your prayers. I am continuing to seek the Lord and He has given me more patience & love for my husband than I have had in quite some time. It is not perfect, but for now, there is a calmer spirit in my house. I know that a lot had to do w me not allowing God to take over, but I am truly blessed and I continue to pray that one day my husband will have a relationship w our Lord & Savior. I know that living my life for Jesus will have an effect on him & that I need to just give everything to God & He will lead me. Faith is huge, ladies. I feel different. I am different. God has given me peace, strength, & patience. If you are having problems in your marriage, look to God. Ask Him for His will. He will provide.

Angela, praying for Paige! Asking our Mighty Lord to speak to this disease in her body and have it leave. May her faith be strengthened even more in Him during this time, and may His power be revealed in her life. "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10 "and with His stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:5 Father, we ask that you take this pain from her, make it leave her body. Strengthen and heal every cell, every muscle, or each part of her body that needs Your touch Lord. We believe in Your healing power. And Father I pray that you bind the enemy off of her and her children. Praying that this will not be passed down to her children in Jesus Name. In Your name I speak life into this situation. Let healing fall like rain on her and her household. Please comfort her at this time and bring her Your peace. Thank you Lord, in Jesus Name, Amen. With hope and expectancy! Love, Sarah

Bless your heart for your testimony. It not only blesses me but it so blesses God. He HEARS you and I pray (and KNOW) that He will honor your heart. It's amazing to watch the Hand of the Lord work but it truly does. This is not be a quick work as much is to be done. It's layer upon layer. As you allow Him to perform change in you, He will reach and pull your husband along. It didn't take overnight to get in the place you are and it will be a progressive work to come out. BUT YOU WILL COME when your eyes are fixed on him. 'Greater love hath no man (woman) than he lay his life down for a friend' His love will see, HIS LOVE, will see you thru every step, RUN to the roar, meet it headon. Like David, you will come to the battle and say 'The Lord God of Israel is with me' and every giant will fall. Plant your feet sister, throw your rope on the alter, HE IS THERE, and hang on. Walk on this water like Peter and keep your eyes on Jesus, don't look to the right or left, EXPECT BIG! It's on the way. Hebrews 13:21 says 'may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the POWER of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.' AND Zech 4:6 is the sealer; 'Not by might, not by power but by my spirit says the Lord'
In Jesus name, Lord, perform that which is pleasing to You in the marriage and in the lives of Anon and her husband. Bless them with goodness and mercy as you walk them to where you're taking them. Hold them in Your mighty Hand as they reach ever for you. Amen.

My 12 year old daughter had brain surgery on Wednesday to remove 2 tumors at mcg in Augusta. The doctors were able to get all of the tumors and she is being moved from icu today to a revular room. Please send up prayees for a speedy recovery and that she will get better soon. She has been diagnosed with cushing syndrome. We need lots of prayers. I know that God has her in is hands and will take care of her.

THank you Lord for the heart of this mother. I pray Father that you hear her in your ears and that your heart be moved to answer her petition for her daughter. I thank you that the surgery was successfull. I pray for a good report and every test that follows be a good report. I pray for the hands that administer medicinally to her that you guide them to bring her to a better place in your timing. Lord this mother wants to see her daughter healed quickly but we know that sometimes it's a step at a time and that we don't want any part of complete healing to be aborted so we place this child in your hands as her mother tesitifies she believes and ask that you be the ultimate healer. I pray that your everlasting arms hold her and that your surgery take her a higher level that she could ever obtain where she is. By the stripes of Jesus she IS healed and at the foot of the cross, we receive the blood of Jesus and place her there. YOur provision of the blood of the Lamb needs no assistance to acoomplish what is needed. I thank you again and praise you for work that's being done. I curse ANY remaining cancer cell in the name above all names, Jesus. I speak to any disease, infirmity, disfunction of cells or body be removed, right now, in Jesus name. We trust you with this life, Father, and I ask that you give her mother discernment, wisdom and strength to walk with you as you carry her child. In Jesus name again and again. Amen.

All I can say is that God is awesome! And so is your faith! I am so thankful and so excited for what He is doing in your life! Faith that moves mountains. May the Lord RICHLY and DEEPLY bless you for your obedience and your love for your husband. I just recently began reading the Power of a Praying Wife, I wanted to know more deeply how to and what to pray for my husband. The book is wonderful and powerful. You may like it if you haven't already read it. One thing it spoke about was how you can win your husband to Christ without saying a word. "Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives," 1 Peter 3:1. It sounds like you are taking care of that! :) I am believing for you and with you that with God ALL things are possible and that your marriage will be restored and that your husband will be saved. May the Lord protect you, your husband, and your marriage. May all plans from the enemy be cancelled in Jesus Name, and may His plans and His peace reign in your home. Praying for God's healing and God's best to come your way and to seal and cover this relationship in His blood. Believing for you and with you! Much love, Sarah

In agreement with you Mom! May the Lord strengthen her minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, aiding her in a speedy and successful recovery. Bless this precious girl with Your peace Father, send Your mighty angels to watch over her and to minister to her. May she feel Your presence so strongly she can't help but notice it. May You do the same for her parents and family also. Bless her Mother for the love she has for her child, and calm her mind with Your peace Father, and please speak to her letting her know that You have it all taken care of. We bind death, and speak life into her body. Father, please cover and protect this family and carry them through this time and always. In Jesus Name! Amen. With love, Sarah
