Prayer Requests and Praises week of 7/1-7/7...


 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened.  
Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he? Or if he is asked for an egg, he will not give him a scorpion, will he? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”
Luke 11:9-13

Lord, Thank you for these words from our Lord, Jesus Christ. We are the heirs to this promise through prayer. What a wonderful gift from You! We humbly accept this gift and promise.
In honor of this holiday week, we thank you and praise you everyday for our military and this great country that you have blessed us with. Please protect our troops and our country from harm, Lord. We pray that our troops would be ambassadors of goodness abroad, dear God. Bless their bodies and their minds as they defend our country. 
We pray that you would bless our leaders and fellow Americans to turn their hearts toward loving and honoring You. Help us to be obedient in our walk, Lord, so that the men and women of this country would be attracted to our sweet Friend, Jesus Christ. We love you and praise you, Lord, Amen.

  2. Just want to thank my Shine girls for the prayers with our home. We must wait a long 2 Weeks for an answer but we are being considered. I can only think of The Isaacs new song "Waiting in the Water." The blind man had to walk a good distance to get to that pool to wash. Anywhere from 1/2 to 3 miles. I'm on my journey. Love you sisters.

  3. Praising God in advance, LORD, for a good report with Tiffany. Should this not be Your will, we know that there is a better way...because that's the way You are. But unless it not glorify You, LORD, unless You are the one causing the obstacle because You see Tiffany's future...we ask and keep on asking...we knock and keep on knocking...and we seek and keep on seeking Your Kingdom every day...in Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen. Thanks in advance LORD!!

    Please pray for fellow Shine Girl, Clanisha. She is in an abusive marriage and is looking into Project Safe for a safe shelter for herself and 3 children. There are no guarantees that she will qualify or how long the wait will be if she does qualify. She lost her job a few months ago and is having a hard time finding steady employment as well. She just started CNA classes today, so please also lift her in prayer so that all goes well with this schooling.
    Thank you so much!

      Stephanie, praying for Clanisha! May the Lord take her and her children at this time and hide them safely under His wings. "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart." Psalm 91:4 "Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings." Psalm 17:8 Praying that His eyes would remain on them and see them through this difficult time in their lives. Lord, please cover them and protect them. Provide for them like only You can. Open doors that need to be opened, and close the ones that need to be closed. Wrap them in Your love and comfort. Bless the path before them and let it be successful, and full of healing from You Father. In Jesus Name, Amen. With love, hope, and expectancy for GOOD thing! Sarah

      Thank You, LORD, in advance for delivering this Mama and her babies! Thank You for saving this husband, in Jesus' Name! Saved men don't physically abuse their wives and children. That's a Truth! Husbands are to love their wives, in Jesus' Name.

      We rebuke divorce in the name of Jesus. Satan wants to divide this family, the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy...but YOU, LORD, came that we can have life to the fullest!!

      Restore this family, Lord. Bring healing to the deepest wounds. Let their love be re-kindled by Your Holy Fire, Lord.

  8. I pray Lord that you move upon the hearts of these two people and cause YOUR love to flow. Rekindle the love that sparked from the beginning, fan it to a flame and add your anointing to it. Let Your love be bigger than any storm the enemy can throw at these people. Seal this family by the blood of the Lamb, cause them to work it out and not walk out. Bless the family, knit them together and give them vision of how YOU see them. I bind the enemy and a spirit of division, confusion and anger in Jesus name that the goodness, compassion and power that the Holy Spirit brings can override and be victorious. I praise you Lord for it and thank you, faith believing. Amen

    Please pray for my children and I. I need to make some difficult decisions after we had a scary day with my husband. Things have escalated in the last 2 weeks with yesterday being very scary with his behavior. We all feel stunned and can't believe what happened. I know we rustle with principalities of evil and this behavior is so opposite of my husbands character. Having the responsibility of 4 kids and keeping them safe physically and emotionally is a huge concern. I feel very alone and don't know where to turn and when I think about it I am so horrified I have a hard time even recounting the day to someone. It just does not seem possible. Please pray for strength, wisdom, and guidance as well protection. Thank you!

    1. I thought about you all night long! I don't know what is happening, but goodness, I am asking the Lord for a complete miracle and restoration in your home.

      Lord, please give this precious SHINE girl guidance and clarity. Her future seems unsure, but YOU know what YOUR plans are for her. A future that is full of promise and HOPE! Jeremiah 29:11

      Thank you for her heart that is not afraid to reach out for prayer. Lord, bless her for her boldness and her courage in reaching out. Let her be an example of strength and faith to her children. Let them ALL look to you for wisdom and clarity.

      Father, I ask that this husband be completely restored. Lord, whatever is wrong, I ask that you restore his mind and his body to YOUR service. Let him be convicted and restored in the name of Jesus.

      I pray that this family will recover from this, and as a result, let them be a witness and example of YOUR GRACE, MERCY, and PEACE! Shine the light of Your Love and Protection over them!

      In Jesus name, Amen.

    Sweet Jesus coming to you for Anon and her children, let your helmet of protection keep them safe, give them the strength to accept changes that are ahead, the wisdom to seek You in all decisions, guiding them step by step to find the resolution to peace. Praying for her husband to open his eyes, heart and spirit to receive atonement for these past days actions that are not of You, Father thanking You now that this Mother receive not only the shelter of Your arms, but a place where she and her children will not feel threatened physically and emotionally, these things we pray in Your precious name, Amen

  12. LORD!! This sounds medicinal and demonic!!! Something controlling this man, in Jesus' Name.

We pray the Church in action for her...out of basically no where!!! in Jesus' Name! Father, reach the hearts of as many intercessors as necessary for the deliverance of not only this wife and her 4 children, but for the husband and daddy! LORD, satan is raging...he's after the home!!! he's after the parents and the children...and no one recognizes that the enemy is not flesh and blood...not the husband, or wife, or the children...but the enemy is satan...our adversary!!! Father, we pray a blood line...we draw it around this family...in Jesus' Name!! Blood of the Lamb of God...JESUS the Christ!!! King of Kings and LORD of LORDS!!! in JESUS; Name and for His sake, in JESUS' Name, Amen and Amen.

    2. Father, I agree with Teddi and Lisa in Jesus name. A three fold cord cannot be broken as Your word tells us. We pray for your will, Lord God, for this family and that you hear the cry of Anon on behalf of her family. Send OVERCOMING power by your Spirit, Father, for Anon and anoint her and cause that power to raise a standard, according to Your Word, that will judge the enemy. I pray that when this storm is blowing, that in the very midst of it, you send a calm to Anon and a confident KNOWING that You are with her, even as your were with Daniel in the lions den and S, M & A in the fiery furnace. You are with her Lord, I know, even now, your Word tells us that when we cry out to you, you are there. Thru the storms of this situation, when she can't walk, I ask that you carry her thru and her children. I ask for a mighty work to be continued in the heart of her husband, we stand united in Jesus name and command demonic forces to flee. I curse them and command that they release and let go in Jesus name. Free this husband/father Lord of the bondage so that he may hear you, open his hearing to Your voice. I command every other voice he hears to cease right now in Jesus name. Send an encounter to him consistly of Yourself Lord that he will be molded into the image you have for him. Stop him at every exit except the door you stand at Jesus. I ask for peace for this home and for your love to flood every entrance and exit and every opening. You are exaulted Lord and we praise you for the work you are doing. Faith believing in Jesus' strong and mighty name. Amen

    Dear Shine Girls:
    I am so grateful to have you! I am asking for prayer for my oldest child who is on vacation with his family this week. Before he left he had an ultra sound on what his doctor had believed to be a "fatty cyst".His doctor called him yesterday and said the radiologist report indicated a solid mass on his chest wall. He will have to have a MRI as soon as he returns.I know this was not what any of us has expected and I have only been able to speak to him via text as they have poor cell service! Please join me in prayer that this mass will disappear and that he receives comfort from the anxiety that I know he must be feeling. Thanking you all for your love and support.

      Lord, comfort him when he feels anxious. We pray that his vacation with his family will draw him close to you and he will seek you when feeling anxious.

    2. Lord we humbly approach the throne and ask for a miracle that you remove in Jesus name, the cyst on this boys chest wall. We know You can do this!! Lord please spare this family.

    3. As we simply touch the hem of your garment Jesus, I ask that virtue be released to this young man and by our faith he be healed. Remove and yes, as Lisa prays, all of the cyst, mass or infirmity from this chest wall. Lord, you have called us to pray, and we willingly walk with you to intercede for those who call upon your name. Now, I remind you of Matt 18:19 'Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven'. This promise is from you and we claim it now on behalf of this boys life. In Jesus name, Amen.
