    I just wanted to ask for prayers for our teachers and children as they head back into the school year. I'm blessed to know many wonderful ladies who guide our babies every day. Praying the Lord keeps them all safe and continues to provide the resources they need for a fulfilling, successful year.

    1. Lord, please bless all of the teachers as they take on a new year of leading and guiding our children. We know this is a high calling - thank you that so many of our teachers are believers and are already trusting you with this need. Give them supernatural strength, stamina, patience, wisdom and grace to make this a successful year. Likewise, please bless our babies with a teachable spirit. In Jesus name ... amen.

      Lord, be with Haylee and keep her sweet baby safe as she delivers. We ask that you be with Aubrey Nicole as well. Keep her in the womb so that she can grow in perfection. We pray for Judy that you make a way in that situation and heal her heart. WE ask that you provide protection and favor for kelly's husband at his job. Give her daughter joy and favor as she starts nursing school...how exciting! Lord, protect Kelly's son as he starts his senior year. As well as her little one starting pre-K. Kelly has a lot going on, and needs your provisions through it all. Thank you for her love for you! You have blessed her with many people to love. You know that she has a heart overflowing for her family. Bless Kelly over and over as she trusts in You, Lord. And as she seeks you daily through Your Word. Amen!

  3. Please pray for my daughter, who just graduated college on July 27th and started a new teaching job the 29th. I'm going to get transparent and ask you all to pray for my son. He's 32. I haven't seen him in about 5 years. A mix of drugs, bad choices, his dad's bad choices, and my inability to do anything about any of it, has separated us. It's too painful to talk about, but I believe God isn't finished with this. So please pray for Brian.

      Lord, please guide Terri's daughter as she begins her journey with these children. Help them to be receptive to her knowledge and leadership. And Lord, please reveal yourself to Terri's son so he may feel your love and find the strength to walk away from evil influences. It's only when we open our hearts to you that we are able to battle Satan. Grace Terri with continued strength and bring her family the healing it needs. Amen

      Agreeing with you Anonymous for Anonymous! There is power in the name of Jesus! May our King heal the hurt, the anger, and the unforgiveness. Let his healing waters be released on this situation and flood hearts, minds, and souls, bringing restoration and light and hope and peace! Father, let Your healing rain fall and cover each precious face. Let Your light drive out all and any oppression from the enemy. Father, please lift the heavy burden from this family, and let freedom begin to flow throughout their homes, minds, and hearts.

      Father hear our prayer for this precious SHINE girl. Heal her husband's back. We come against addiction issues for this man. Father, in the name of Jesus, we rebuke this addiction and tell it to flee from his life. Addiction has NO place in this family. What satan meant for evil, God will turn it to GOOD! Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy, but YOU Lord came so that we could have LIFE and LIFE to the FULLEST! Thank you for this! Heal this family, heal this man. We love you, Father. Amen.

  8. Where two or more agree, God is in our midst, and I agree with you all as we continually lift these requests to our Father, who sits on His seat's edge waiting to hear our familiar voices. From the addiction issues to the blended family problems, Lord, have your way, break hearts for what breaks yours. Heal the pain, confuse Satan's schemes, let them backfire, in the wonderful, mighty name, Jesus.

    1. oh, friend. i know this struggle all too well. i can promise you tho, that God's word BRINGS HEALING AND PEACE. it has taken me a long time to learn this, and believe this. repeat His Word and scriptures back to Him every day. when you are feeling anxious recite scripture out loud. the enemy will flee! call on the name of Jesus, always. we can only conquer fear through the strength of Christ...when we are weak, He is STRONG. Lord, bring peace to this heart. Flood her with your Peace and Your Love. Let her trust that You are in control, and she can trust You! you have her best interest at heart...always! You will never leave her or forsake her. I pray this friend will be healed completely from anxiety and fear. She does NOT receive this anymore in her life. You have come to give her LIFE and LIFE to the fullest! Thank you for what You are doing in her life...she will have such a testimony to share with others who struggle. Thank you, Father.

    Just wanted to ask you to forward a prayer request to the SHINE Girls for me. The youth pastor at my church passed away last Saturday. I'm a member at Springfield Baptist Church in Conyers. Pastor Lucas Woods suffered a massive stroke last week and passed in Saturday. He was 52 years old and had been ministering to the young Kingdom Kids for about 13 years. Please pray for his wife and kids, his other family, the children in the church, our pastor Eric Lee, and the entire church family. His funeral services are Thursday at 3:00 PM @ at Springfield Baptist Church (in the old Church In the Now location.)

Father, BLESS THE SOCKS OFF THESE GIRLS! Bless anyone reading this post, Lord. They are drawn to You, and they are drawn to Your Word.
