  1. Hi friends!

    My son has been having speech problems(stuttering to be exact). We are beginning speech therapy at the end of July. The speech therapist has a wait list so that is as soon as we can begin. Please pray that his sweet mind can rest. Also pray that those who come in contact with him the next few months show patience and compassion.


    Thank you so much!

      Tiffany, praying that the Lord would watch over him now and always. May the Lord's perfect peace wash over him, and calm his sweet mind. May the Lord provide exactly the speech therapist that he needs at this time, may they be the perfect one! And like you said Tiffany, may each one that he comes into contact with show patience and compassion. May it be overflowing. And may his stuttering be healed in Jesus Name. If there is a storm causing this, may our Father who is mighty and capable speak to it and bring peace. Father, I ask that you wrap Your loving arms around this sweet child when he is awake, asleep, and playing. Protect his precious mind and body, we know how much You love children, and we know that You have it all taken care of! Bless this sweet momma for bringing her child before you, and give her the peace she needs and let her be comforted in knowing that You have it all in the palm of Your hand. Just draw them closer together at this time all for Your glory, and bless their time together. Please bless her with Your wisdom and knowledge in guiding her baby boy and being with him. In Jesus Name, Amen. Much love! Believing for you and with you! He's got it! :) Sarah

    2. Father, we thank You for Your Word...for the examples that You give in Your Word. LORD, You say in Your Word that the spirit connected with the typed tongue and the stammering tongue...as well as seizures...has a name...deaf and dumb spirit. In the Name that is above all names, we rebuke the deaf and dumb spirit and we command that it leave Tiffany's son, in Jesus' Name. You allow us to pray over the telephone and internet...for people to receive healing from a television broadcast...when we can't be present to lay hands as we would if we were there. By the authority you've given me to pray, in Your Name, and by the power of Your Name and Your Word which is above Your Name, LORD, I lay my hands...in fact I lick my fingers and place in her sons' ears as I did my nephew so many years ago...and I say "ephatha" ...be open in Jesus' Name. I thank You in advance that that wicked and foul spirit as You called it in Your Word...has to leave...and that his ears are opened...in Jesus' Holy Name. You are no respecter of persons, LORD...what You've done for me and mine...You will do for Tiffany and hers...in Jesus' Name. I thank You, for my nephew's healing of stuttering, about 30+ years ago...and for my granddaughters tongues loosed so that they could pronounce l's and r's correctly. You are the great therapist...speech and otherwise...as You are the great healer...Jehovah Rophe. Astound us LORD!! Glorify Yourself in this circumstance. We will give You all the Glory and the Honor and the Praise!! In Jesus' Name, and for His sake, Amen and Amen. So Be It!!

    5. Tiffany,

      This hits close to home because my husband struggled with stuttering as a boy and it was such a hard obstacle for him to work through. He still has some trouble with certain words.
      So, I am honored to pray for your boy.

      Dear God, I pray that you would bless Tiffany's son. I pray that he would have complete healing over any pronunciation and or language problems, God. I pray that he could relax when he talks and I pray that his sweet thoughts could flow out of his mouth. May he encounter people that would have an empathetic ear and would not laugh as he works through this. Lord, carry him through this, help the experience to grow his self confidence and his self esteem. May he thrive in such a way that we know it is all from you.

      Thank you in advance, Lord, for what you have done, are doing and will do. We praise you and receive these gifts. In Jesus name, Amen!

      With love,
      Rebekah

  2. Mke left this morning for a business trip to Orlando and won't be home till Satiurday night. Please pray for safe travels for him and for God's hand to be on Mike while he does business....growing Ruherford Equipment ALL in the name of the Lord. Also, please pray for our three kiddos. I know they are going to miss their daddy so very much while he is gone. Lastly, please pray for me.....I do not want to feel overwhelmed or scared this week. When Mike travels, I sleep awful....I get scared at night....and I feel overwhelmed with the kids and having no help. Thank you sweet SHINE sisters. Blessings.

      Heather, I can totally relate! It can be such an overwhelming and intimidating feeling! Praying for you! Father, please be with Heather's husband as he travels. Send Your angels to guard and protect him as he is on the plane, doing his work, in his hotel, or taxi. Bless everything he puts his hands to, prosper him in Jesus Name. Bring him home safely to his family Father. Let the week go by smoothly for Heather and her family and her husband. Help her babies while he is gone, bring their Daddy back home quickly! Ease any anxieties they may have while he is gone. Asking that You let your peace fall like a healing rain on Heather. Let her feel You with her at all times, watching over her, her home, her family, when they are awake, when they are asleep, and when they are out and about. Father, please bless her with sleep as peaceful as a newborn baby. "I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety." Psalm 4:8 Let her burden be light Lord, may Your presence alone take those overwhelming feelings from her. Claiming a good week for her and her family, and may all this be done in Jesus Name. Thank you Lord! We love You and praise You. We know You are watching over this sweet family! Much love to you Heather! Love, Sarah

    2. LORD, bless Mike at all he puts his hands to on this business trip to Orlando. Guide him...and give him great favor...as he grows this company in the Name of the LORD. Bless those little guys who miss having Daddy around. May they have creative thoughts to please their Daddy and Mama while Daddy's away. Thank You, LORD, for releasing a gentle and quiet spirit among the children...and Heather...and the house. Like a Holy Hush!! Woo Hoo!! and Father we bind all fear and loneliness ...in Jesus' Name! Heather can do all things through You, LORD, for strengthens her! The Joy of the LORD is her strenghth!! As she plays praise music through her house...as she plays the Word of God...or has Christian tv or radio on...rejoicing...that spirit of heaviness leaves. Perfect Love casts out all fear! Loving You, LORD, with all her heart, mind, and soul...keeping her mind stayed on You, brings perfect peace. In Jesus' Name, and for His sake, Amen and Amen.

    5. Dear God, bless Heather in Mike's absence this week. Give her peace like she needs, Lord, just when she needs it most. Send her small blessings all week to give her peace and patience and remind her of how You are working on her behalf, Lord. I pray that in her most trying moments that she has a soft and humble gratitude to be the mother of these beautiful, smart and fun triplets! What a gift from you, God.

      Bless Mike while he is away, Lord. Give him a week of wins, dear Lord. Help his time away from his family to be blessed by you as it is a sacrifice for he and Heather. I pray for your favor and influence to be on Mike's side, every moment, Lord. I pray also for Mike's safety and protection. Lead, guide and direct him, Lord, make Mike Rutherford's path straight, in Jesus name. Amen.

      With Love,
      Rebekah

    Just had a thought and a praise to share! :) With this beautiful rain we are having today, I am reminded of God's provision and protection over me, and how He watches over all of us! I used to sink down into a deep dark hole when this type of weather would come. I felt doomed, like it would never get better for me each time winter would come or it would rain and be dark or gloomy. My mother prayed over me this past December, and I haven't had it since! NOT ONE TIME. He is faithful girls! If He can take care of a problem like that for me, He can do ANYTHING for you! He can! Know that He knows your inmost being, "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb." Psalm 139:13, He is able to deliver you from anything, or through anything. I am forever grateful to Him for delivering me, and forever grateful to my mother for praying that prayer that dark December day. I don't dread winter this year, and I welcome rain now! :) My babies LOVE muddy puddles. And THAT makes it all the more better for me! <3 Giving thanks to Him today and always. Love, Sarah

  4. Whom the LORD sets free is free indeed. Praise Him that He delivers us and frees us from bondage. My Beth Moore CD is teaching me that we can not reach milestones until we learn to get past the moment. IF we cry out effectually with fervancy (James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.) in Jesus name at the point of bondage or oppresion, for the immediate moment, He is faithful to hear us 'in His ears' and deliver us. Thank you Father for Sarah's deliverance, we give you all the praise and glory.

  5. Wow! Terri...prayer of deliverance for Sarah...much like for my grand girls...and nephew so many years ago...and now Tiffany's son. How the LORD wants to deliver us all from the enemy...but, so often we resist. I'm sooo excited to hear this testimony, Sarah...we serve such a wonderful God...such a precious Jesus...thanks Holy Spirit of God for your moving in and out among Your children...Your body...In Jesus' Name, LORD...In Your Name, and for Your sake!!! Woo Hoo!!!!

      Lord, please bless Jill for wanting to be obedient to You! Bless her sweet mind with clarity straight from You. As she seeks You, let her eyes see only what You have for her to see, and let her ears hear only what You would have for her to hear. Let Your peace reign and fall on her, her husband, her children, and her home, and wherever she goes. Guard her mind and heart and give her clear direction Lord. Thank you for watching over her! In Jesus Name, Amen. Love to you Jill! Sarah

  8. Father, in the Name of Jesus and for His precious sake, I bring Jill to You...I pray that peace that passes allll understanding...Shalom...into her life. I pray she bask in the Word...flowing from her car...her phone...her laptop...wherever she is...for that praise runs off the enemy. The Word flowing from within out and from outside...in ...washing with the water of the Word...transforming her mind...keeping it in perfect peace as it is stayed on You...As she practices this place of staying...I thank You for the Holy Hush of all the voices that speak loud and frenzied around her and that that stillness in her allow Your voice to be clear and effective in her mind and her life. In Jesus' Name, LORD, You cause us to walk through green pastures...You lead us beside still waters...You restore our souls...You lead us in the paths of righteousness for Your Name' Sake...Hallelujah! Amen and Amen.

    Please say a prayer for my mother and my brother. I am not exactly sure what to pray for - other than resolution.....


    My brother has put my mom in a terrible position by taking advantage of her giving heart/nature and skirting his responsibilities as a grown man. He has been living in a rental house she owns and depends on for income for a year and a half - and in that 18 months he has only paid the agreed, well below market monthly rent twice. My moms financial situation is to a point now that she can not do without the minimal rent they agreed on - yet he is argumentative, hateful, and dismissing when she has tried to approach the subject in the past and was that way even just today. My brother has put my mom in a situation that is impossible as a mother....he must start taking responsibility or she will be forced to put him out of the home, which of course is not something she wants to do.


    She has plans to talk to him on Friday - Please pray that the Lord will give her strength and wisdom in her conversation with my brother and that my brother will have ears to hear, eyes to see and will do the right thing by my mom. This situation is effecting our in entire family in a very negative way- thank you for your prayers!

      Anonymous, praying for you and your family! Asking the Lord to give your mother the strength she needs, and the mental peace to deal with this situation. May our Lord anoint her words in any conversation she may have with your brother. May they flow freely and smoothly. Praying that the Lord would protect her heart and her mind. And give you the same peace as well anonymous. May you be blessed for wanting peace in your family. "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." Matthew 5:9 (King James) May the Lord speak to your brother's heart, turning it towards the things of Him above. May his eyes and ears be opened to what the Lord has for him to see and hear. Father, please bring unity where there is division, and bring healing where there is brokenness. In Jesus Name, Amen! With love and hope for you! Sarah

    2. From the God, our God, who never sleeps, we know you are aware of this situation Lord. I am in agreement with Sarah that you send strength and wisdom to Anon's mom to carry out right decisions as you give them to her. Prepare her for battle and move upon her and empower her to proceed as you direct. I pray for divine direction and thoughts to her as to you plan. She still has her will Lord and this appears to be a stronghold on her situation, only you know. But I pray the Holy Spirit rule and reign in her situation so that freedom comes to her and to Anon's brother. In Jesus name. Amen

  10. Agreeing with these, LORD, for this very hard situation. It looks so impossible...so hopeless...and, yet, LORD, You, the God of the impossible do see and move in behalf of Your child, LORD. You make a way where there is no way! We pray the crooked road straight, and we thank You that Love is not gentle and easy...just look at how roughly those nurses in the new born unit are with those babies...or a kitten is with her cub...or we could name a lot of tough love. Thank You, LORD, that where we have not corrected our children early...where we feel guilty for circumstances...we rip up all that we planted that was not from You, and we plant new fresh seed into this life and circumstance. Thank You, LORD, that You are right here and You contend with what Anonymous contends with...You fight against what she's fighting against...You uphold her with Your right hand...in Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen.

    Spare the rod, spoil the child, even a grown child, needs to feel remorse over taking advantage of their MOM, praying along with Sarah, Terri, and Aunt Teddi, for strength and Godly wisdom is dealing with a son that needs tough love, and asking for protection over this Mom's heart.

    Please be in prayer for a young orphan girl from Ukraine that my brother-in-law and sister-in-law are supposed to be hosting in two weeks. She had been allowed to leave the orphanage for a short time to visit distant relatives. She was last seen with a "gypsy" boy, and has not returned to the orphanage. Police are searching. She and her sister are very close and do not want to be separated. They didn't think that she would do something like this. Please pray for provision and protection and that the Lord would bring her back safely. Thank you! Sarah

    1. Such a big big world Lord for this child be in. But, as Teddie says, you know exactly where she is. I pray that you Lord take the reigns in this situation totally and I ask the prefect will for this girl to be done in Jesus name. Lord whereever she is, please keep her safe from harm and danger and most of all from the hands of the enemy. Speak to her heart and mind, hold them in Christ Jesus, cause her to turn to your will and if escape is what you desire, show her THE Way, stand at the door sweet Jesus and lead her out. Bless her sister as she waits, give her your perfect peace I ask. In Jesus name, Amen.

  14. LORD, I lift up my nephew, Aidan, and I pray healing for his body. Whatever is causing the allergy(ies)...whatever has caused the body to break down and be allergic to many things...so that he has to begin a regiment of allergy shots...Lord, we speak to and command that it let him go! My sister, Carole, his grandmother asked for prayer...actually told his mom to bring to me on fb...but as I'm here praying out of the darkness into the light...I know that I am to lift him here, too. El Roi...You see what is causing this...some sort of immune or auto-immune...thing...LORD...and we pray for Aidan to be totally healed for his grandmother's sake, who said that when I took shots as a child...and Beth did as an adult...we didn't know Jehovah Rophe our healer...we didn't know how to pray and ask in Faith believing. Well, as she said, we do now, and we are asking that You totally WOW us! Those were her words to me today! We thank You, LORD, for just causing all of the medical people that are involved...all our family...all that need to know God heals...to see this miracle! Glory!! I'm about to jump out of my skin...as my mother would say...then later she said rapture...well I'm believing along with Carole and all of you who will join with me for this healing...this miracle...in Jesus' Name, and for His sake...Amen and Amen! So Be It!

    Terri, I have remembered you today as our family celebrated Father's Day, this is the 1ST Father's Day without your Dad. I so recall how sad my first after Daddy died and still today their is a void. You are one tough cookie that I am amazed at your relationship with the Lord. So sweet sister, you are in our family's thoughts and always in our prayers. As well, we have loved you and your family for a long time, so our thoughts are with all your family. Psalm 147:3 "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." In the name of Jesus I lift up Terri and her family as this day has come and now almost gone, we know Lord weeping will remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning as we celebrate with our redeemer for the vastness of His love that brings back joy where there has been pain. We pray for Terri to be your instrument that brings hope to the many that you send her way, Always in Your precious name, Amen Ladona
