PRAY: Kelly, Lakshmi, Donna and I pray for our children (or other needs as they arise) at 2pm Central Time. I love it knowing that, as I literally am in my closet, I am praying with these sisters. All of the times have been so special! I think that we said that we would pray for at least a half hour but I find it such a good time and I am able to, so I go longer. Let us know if you are able to do so at that time as it is so wonderful to be praying together.
Here are the requests that were sent to me or I was aware of. So that I do not overlook someone, please be diligent about notifying me or the list will stay the same next Wednesday - literally. With an update, change or addition - please either message or email me.
- Donna: My adult children Mitch(wife Mandy) and Sasha (husband Bill) for prayer. If you ask them, they will respond they are Christians. They both invited Jesus into their hearts when they were younger but daily life, work and raising kids seems to take too much time for a relationship with God and for sure they are not going to church.
-Kelly :Pray for her daughters Autumn and Lauren. Kelly is offering a “general” prayer for prodigals, which includes her daughters, Autumn and Lauren. May ____ find grace and peace in you, God and Father – NOTHING else. I thank you God, for my them and I pray for the day when I can rejoice in their faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that will fill their heart for all of the saints because of their newfound hope which is laid up in heaven. Send laborers to my children so that they may hear the word of truth, the gospel; and cause it to bear fruit and increase in them - as it also does in the whole world. Open their hearts to understand Your grace. I will never cease to pray for them!! Fill them with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding so they walk in a manner that is worthy of You, Lord. Stir up within their hearts a hunger and desire to be pleasing to You, to bear fruit in every good work and to increase in the knowledge of You. When the enemy comes to steal Your word, strengthened them with all power, according to your glorious might, to endure and be patience with joy, and to give thanks to you Father. It is only by Your grace that any of us are qualified to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. I praise you that you are working to deliver them from the domain of darkness and transfer them to the kingdom of Your beloved Son. Because of Your grace and mercy, open their eyes to Your love so that they cry out for redemption and the forgiveness of their sins.
-Darlene: My kids are: Olivia (23), Ryan (19), Wesley (16) and Riley (13). (A 3 year old picture of them are on our Google Map)
-Jason: Need prayer for my marriage. I need prayer that my wife will come to JESUS CHRIST and see HIM as her saviour. We are currently separated, she is also in another relationship. Please pray for my 2 stepdaughters for them to know and come to CHRIST. I pray for my 2 children to continually stay knowing CHRIST and loving CHRIST. I pray I can get a good paying job close to my family so that I can truly be Priest, provider & protector as GOD wills for my family. I pray for reunification of my family.
-Tim: -Jonathan (30) and Kara (24) will return to Jesus. They would say that they are Christians but are cynical about Jesus and show no desire to know Him.
-Praise God gor a glorious conference where Nickolay Revtov, from Ukraine, encouraged us to tell others about Jesus. It was SO good! Thanks for praying!
-I struggle with chronic fatigue. I bike and try to stay active but always feel tired. I do have neck pain constanlly from my paralyzing accident 20 years ago which I think is a huge factor.
-David: I’m afraid, I could really do with prayers as I’m struggling with my LAST assignment for my Lay Reader course which is due on 3rd April. It’s Doctrine 4-Source Model. I just cannot understand what is being asked and how doctrine fits into this particular model.
Also I’m finding that my antidepressants aren’t working as normal in that I’m having to fight back the tears at work, now as I write this post. Not sure if it’s this assignment or other factors like stress at work, home etc.
