  3. Please pray for my 77 year old mommy as she is having periods of anxiety and seems frustrated to the point of being argumentative towards those she dearly loves. Of course, I have been praying that this is just a sign of her grieving six years for my beloved father. My dad had alzheimers but in the end he succombed to a lung cancer that attacked him fast and furiously and he joined his Father in Heaven in a mere 6 weeks time. I am praying for God to send her physical and mental healing and that my fears be proven false.....my grandfather died of alzheimers at age 66.....Please God, please cleanse her brain of any attacks and signs of clinical alzheimers.
    In Jesus Name,

  4. oh, heavenly Father, hear our prayer regarding Nancy's mother. i stand in agreement with Nancy over the cleansing of her mother's mind, Father. by the Blood of the Lamb, we ask that You heal her of any roots of alzheimers and sickness. we ask that You break the bondage of anxiety, and frustration in her life.

    Father, also bring Nancy peace as she helps her mother and tends to her. let Nancy feel Your loving arms wrapped around her as she cares for her sweet Mother.

    You came so that we could have LIFE and LIFE to the FULLEST! (john 10:10)

    give Nancy's mother a full, long, healthy life, Lord. we stand together in agreement and ask that Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

    Amen.

    love you, Nancy! <3

    I have 2 prayer request this morning. 1 pray for my mom. My dad passed 1 yr ago this month. He was not a believer and my mom did not go to church or read her Bible for many many yrs. Since she quit drinking and cusing she has found a church and even goes to Bible study every week. She needs prayers for the up coming weeks I know she misses him she really loved him. But at the same time I got my mom that I had as a little girl. 2 For me I feel a tugging on my heart to help my husband what I think God has put on my heart he really is not going to like. Sometimes you have to let go of things to move into new season of life. I am praying for conformation from the Lord. I need to make sure that it is his will. I want to stay in Gods will. Thanks Kelly

    Kelly, I agree in prayer with you for your Mom. May she feel His presence today and every day. May she feel His Peace in the upcoming days of the anniversary of your father's death. Father, thank you for drawing Kelly's Mom to Your Grace, Your Love, and Your arms. Wrap her up and never let her go.

    We also ask that You speak to Kelly in regards to what she is wanting to do to help her husband. Give her clarity and direct and order her steps. Father, we ask that Kelly and her husband are in perfect unity and harmony as they move into a new season of life. Your Word says that YOu are not the author of confusion, but of Peace.

    Let Kelly find answers in Your Living, breathing, Holy Word. Let her hear Your Voice guiding her every second of every day. Give Kelly favor in her comings and her goings. In Jesus Name we pray and ask that Your will be done, Lord. Amen.

  7. I just want to praise Him this morning for His faithfulness and the new compassion He has over me every single morning!! He has been so good and like Jill was mentioning, it is so easy to fall into the snare of beating ourselves up for not spending adequate time with Him. Thanks for this morning's words.

  9. Father I lift these heartfelt petitions to you Lord the author and finisher of our faith. Trials WILL come Lord and as they do, You are perfecting our faith as we walk close to you. I pray for Nancy's mom in this time of unrest. I speak Your peace to her heart Father that when the way get scarry, as my 3yr old grandson says, that you draw close to her. Give her the mind of Christ and Christlike thoughts. Give her power by your Holy Spirit to overcome fear and anxiety that comes from the enemy and lift her by your love. Lord, I know that actions like Nancy speaks of come out of fear in the season of life her mother is in as you've allowed me to see this in the past in several situations. I thank you for that and ask that you ease this lady's plight as she moves in unfamiliar territory, give her clear precise direction to bring her rest in you. Lord I pray for Kelly's situation and thank you that she looks to you for hope and rescue. I pray that you teach her how to support her husband thru unconditional love and prayer if she thinks he has a Word from you. Lead her thru prayer Lord and keep her ears keen to hear you as your speak to her and as you speak thru him to her. She is the discernment of the union and he is wisdom. Knit them together to move as one as you work your will in this time in their lives. Bless her mother as she experiences time sensitive happenings and lead her also with your quiet strong power. In Jesus name. Amen

      Conny, I am so sorry. I can't imagine how hard that must be. I am praying for you. Praying that God's will would be revealed to you for your life. May He comfort you at this time and be Your source of strength. I ask that He continues to lead and guide you, and be with you and Chloe. Praying that the joy of the Lord would be your strength. Lord, we know you have Conny and Chloe's lives in the palm of Your hand and we trust You for what You have planned for them. "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 Father, please pour Your blessings out upon them. In Jesus Name, Amen. Believing for you and with you Conny! Love, Sarah

    to Emory Adventist tonight. They may do surgery in the morning. Either
    colitis or appendicitis. They are administering IV antibiotics tonight
    and will decide in the morning. He is in a lot of pain. Thank you for
    praying.

    Love you, Beka

  12. Father God, I cover Marc right now in the blood of the Lamb. I thank you Lord that symptoms were revealed for a cause that requires correction and that it was not any worse. I pray your grace and mercy and mighty healing upon him. Ease his pain, I rebuke fever and infection in Jesus name. I ask for anointing on the doctors and nurses and any medical team approaching or administering to this situation. Bring Marc to a place Lord that He feels your presense, knows your comfort and I bind any fear in him in Jesus name. I ask for love and power and a sound mind according to your word, do your work Holy Spirit, use this time to grow Marc close to you. Give him peace now Lord and an expectant spirit of goodness and restoration. In Jesus name, Amen

  13. I just heard from Nancy and Marc still has pain and fever this morning. The doctor said he is feeling better because of the morphine, but the surgeon decided they will proceed with the appendectomy this morning, in about 2 hours. I just wanted to pray...

    Dear Heavenly Father, We pray for the hands of the surgeon and for wisdom and direction. This is a routine surgery, God, we recognize this. But, Marc is precious to us beyond measure. We know where our help comes from, it comes from the Lord. We put our faith in You, God. You are with us in time of trouble. Please be with Marc every second and I pray that you make Marc's path straight, in Jesus' name. I pray he is restored to full health and we will be careful to praise and honor you, Lord, our Maker and Healer. In Jesus' name, Amen.

  14. Thank you for your prayers, Marc came through his surgery ok. The appendix was gangrene and his intestines had begun to wrap around the appendix (which, we are told, is what happens with a prolonged appendicitis.) He was unable to have a laproscopic surgery because of this so recovery will be more involved. We are thanking God this evening for answered prayers and will continue to trust God for Marc's total healing.

    xoxo,
    Beka

    1. Jesus as you healed the ten lepers, one came back to say THANK YOU! You took such note of this that it's recorded in your word in Luke 17:11-19. You asked of the other nine that went on their way but the overflow, Father, you said to grateful heart; 'Rise and go; your faith has made you well'. I stand with Rebekah and am careful to come back and thank you for Marc, for sparing him further complication, for releasing from deterioation, for sending excellent surgeons to perform the needed procedure. Now, with grateful hearts for sure on behalf of Marc, by our faith he is made whole and healed. It is finished, it is done and we receive this healing and continued recovery by way of the cross and the blood of Jesus. IT IS DONE. Thank you Lord, praise You Father. Amen

    1. Precious Lord, come by here, to this family where hurting people hurt each other. Raise a standard in this time of need that you may bring judgement and conviction against anger, bitterness, greed, hatred and unreasonable minds. In Jesus name I ask you Father to be a very present help in this time of trouble. Do not waiver Lord, yet, come quick, abort further damage. Turn what the enemy has meant for evil and harm to good to bring glory to your name. Have mercy Lord, do a work in those that are willing, give unconditional love thru them to the areas of pain. Thank you Lord, in Jesus name, Amen.

    I need prayer please. I haven't struggled with fear in a while like I used to. Here lately, it seems to be nagging away at me. I know fear is not of the Lord, and that it has got to go! I just need someone to agree with me, and remind me that it's all going to be okay! Thank you!

    1. 'For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind'. 2 Tim 1:7 the word tells us. Fear is from the accuser of the brethren and the father of lies. Lord God, in Jesus holy and powerful name, I rebuke this fear over Anon right now, I command she be loosed and unbound. I speak love, power and a sound mind over her. I pray the mind of Christ in her and the anointing of the Holy Spirit to bring her truth. Deception is bound is Jesus name. The 'joy of the Lord is your strength'. As you begin to praise him, Anon, the joy of the Lord will make you strong, 'God inhabits the praises of His people'. Turn it loose and be pro-active. As you draw near to the Father, 'He will draw near to you'. Lord guide her along the narrow path that belongs to You and as she walks bring her comfort and fill her with supernatural wisdom and knowledge to combat this this warfare that comes from hell that she may fight a good fight. There is victory in Jesus. In His name, Amen.

    2. agreeing with anon and terri over the stronghold of fear in anon's life. Oh, girl, how this post hits home with me.

      just this week i had a moment of fear that lasted for several hours. i spent time in His Word and spoke promise after promise over my life. standing on His truth! i have many verses that i cling to when fear sets in this heart of mine.

      I sought the LORD, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
      - Psalm 34:4

      When I am afraid, I will trust in You. - Psalm 56:3

      When you lie down, you will not be afraid; you will lie down, and your sleep will be
      pleasant. - Proverbs 3:24

      Now this is what the LORD says— the One who created you, Jacob, and the One who
      formed you, Israel — “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your
      name; you are Mine.” - Isaiah 43:1

      He will not fear bad news; his heart is con!dent, trusting in the LORD.
      - Psalm 112:7

      Be strong and courageous; don’t be terri!ed or afraid of them. For it is the LORD your
      God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you.”- Deuteronomy 31:6

      Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for You are with me; Your
      rod and Your staff —they comfort me. - Psalm 23:4

      I hope these helps..i have more where those came from! speak them over and over. go to the Lord and boldly ask Him to take this from you. He will.

      praying for you, sweet friend.

      I cannot thank you enough for your prayers. Terri, thank you for pouring out your prayer before the throne for me. It is greatly appreciated. Jill, thank you so much for the many scriptures. I sat down last night to write some out, and didn't come across these. So this is perfect! Reading them over and over and claiming them over my life. Thank you and may God richly bless you and keep you for caring for others the way you do.

    I feel so unworthy and undeserving asking for prayer for myself when I know there are others who have needs far greater than mine, but after starting, and deleting this several times now, I'm here asking for prayer for me. I am in such a struggle and feel so broken. I am trying so hard to be the person God wants me to be. But the harder I try the more I fail and the more discouraged I become. I feel like the more I try to let Gods love show thru me the more I get hurt. I know we are all given tests for a reason but I think I have failed all of my tests. I am so discouraged and hurt, and it seems that being a more loving and compassionate person is hurting me not helping me...is that even possible? Shouldn't love and compassion and forgiveness bring the same in return?. I've been praying for understanding and I've been praying for the relief of heartache and broken discouragement. Thank you for allowing me to selfishly ask for and receive prayer for something so small.

    ReplyDelete
  20. You are not broken, in Jesus' precious name!! Please always come here for prayer. The Lord cares about every bird of the air and of course He cares for you especially because you were made in His image.

    I pray right now that the Lord would send His peace to you, the peace that passes ALL understanding. I pray that He would quiet your heart and mind and help you to lean into your faith in HIM. God, bless this sweet lady. Give her the kind of relief and sweet peace that only comes from you. I pray that you cancel the assignment of satan on her mind, Lord. She knows good, Lord, help her to follow You and Your word, no matter what wrongs have been done to her. Give this sweet SHINE sister victory in her life and over her thoughts. We praise You, Lord. We thank you for the fact that we always TRIUMPH in Christ Jesus, amen.

      In agreement with Rebekah. Father, take the enemy and his lies and throw them in a pit of fire! This SHINE girl is worthy and you have big plans for her life! The enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy, but you have come that we may have LIFE and life to the fullest!(John 10:10)We stand on YOUR Word, Father. Lift this precious girl up and fill her with the fruit of Your Promises, Lord. Let her believe what your Word says about HER: "You are fearfully and wonderfully made". Let the enemy take NO more ground in her life. Father, we SHINE girls stand in the gap for her healing, her renewal, and the transformation of her mind. Father, let her think on good things, pure things, holy things. Philippians 4:8.

      We ask these things in your Holy name, Amen.
