Dear Prayer Group
For those of you that are new to the group, we submit prayer requests and pray for each other all week. Next week we do the same, even if there is a redundancy of prayer requests. It is nice if praises are reported here as well.
I need to tell all of you where I am terribly burdened and that is for those who are enduring emotional pain alone. You don’t know how many conversations that I have after church where believers are emotionally distraught but can’t mention when we pray in church because - and get this - they don’t feel that it is the place to do so. In church! So please, if your heart aches please share it to the degree that you feel comfortable with. You are in a safe place and we have pledged to keep it right here.
Already in this group, you will notice that we have physical ailments mentioned and we should. But there are heartaches and longing for salvation of many - often times our own children. But if you are depressed, addicted to a sin, in pain over the death of a loved one - here is the place to open up because we will pray.
I’m getting too wordy again but most of us do not put you on our checklist but seek the intervention of the Holy Spirit on each prayer item. We are all on a journey to learn how to pray but we do and that pleases our Lord.
-That Jonathan and Kara, two of my children, would find their way back home and fall into Jesus’ arms.
-We own a lodge and it is our busy season but we are terribly short staffed and so have to close for some of our mealtimes. We need waitstaff but have scoured the earth and cannot find any possibilities.
-I’m 68 and my wife is 66 and we want to know Jesus’ will as to what He wants in regards to our lodge. Should we sell it or keep going or hold onto for a number of years until some of our children can take over?
-Nancy is physically going downhill. She has constant headaches, is losing her balance, has neuropathy, and is very tired but is such a trooper - a genuine angel. Praise God for 46 years of marriage, 7 children and 23 grandchildren and 5 lovely son and daughter-in-laws.
-Jun & Regina and family are from and minister in Mindanao in the Philippines. They have constant attack on their bodies by the enemy to deter them. They stand strong but as with those helping to lift Moses’s hands to win the battle, we need to be doing the same.
