Please unite with me in prayer for the following imminent requests: My deposit for a room on 2/26 p.m. to go through and my move in on 3/1/2018 at 10am to go smoothly. May the Holy Spirit hoover over this upstairs apartment my roommates and my room may the Lord minister to me there and keep it safe, secure for the rest of the year until my prayer for my own home be granted. No more homelessness. Secure my part time job at department store, may I grow, touch me Lord, teach me, direct my steps. Touch my finances exponenticially. Find my long term last employer where I can stay and retire! Turned 50 and need that in my life now. Unless God takes me before that. Who is that company and employer? Show me Lord and take me there. Process my skincare license due 5/31 online may all go well as it always does every two years. Will be paying fees in April. School applications and grants for continued education to go through. Resolve all legal & settle. Touch the people that are working on this. God knows the details. Renew me like the eagle! Heal health ailments, touch every cell in my body make me new.

I pray for all of the children at school this morning with an unconfirmed threat. I pray especially for the child making these threats and crying out for help. May someone hear their cries before anything transpires. I pray for the teachers, administrators, and police involved in trying to keep the school calm while having a normal day of class. God please all the schools who will go through this today and any day.

Please help me. My sister Sarah gets favored and I get ignored and mistreated daily. My sister Sarah won't let me in the choir at the church I was baptized (by the pastor). It is the church that I pledged to serve for the rest of my life. It is Pender United Methodist Church. The choir director's name is Peggy. Do I go there or not? Why am I being treated this way? Do I just walk away? I did walk away and now go to another church, but worry that the covenant I made before God will get me in trouble with God since I didn't stay there. I asked how to serve the church and I was told there was nothing for me to do! What am I supposed to do?

Now I go to another church and I am in the choir there. Should I stay there? Please pray that I can forgive my sister who is favored over me and treated very very well. I don't know that I'm jealous. I see my parents treating her very well and treating me very badly. They are the ones doing it. But, also she won't answer my questions when I try to talk to her and she ignores me, so it's just the three of them talking and no one is talking to me. They always ignore me. They also treat my brother well and put them both through college, but not me and they didn't help me to be able to leave the nest. I don't understand why they treat me badly. I just isolate myself in my room. I have church friends, but they are older than me and I don't really get together with them very often. Please pray that I will know what to do and that something will change. I'm tired of being ignored!

Thank you Lord for new roommates that I will leave a deposit for on 2/26 bless & seal this agreement, since I desperately need a place to live. May all go very smoothly on 3/1 in the morning when I move out & into this new place. Cover me & these roommates with the Blood of Jesus and Holy Spirit. Peace to be in this apartment and my bedroom. Also secure my present part time employment; that I may grow and go into a management position quickly and do well there. I am in a very up in the air & transitional period in my life & at 50 I really need to secure a permanent living arrangement; also one last company to work for until the Lord take me, where I can retire! Please a lot of prayer to never be homeless again & God willing for my 805 home to be given back or some kind of home. And last, my skincare license renewal payment online to go through, for fafsa and csu classes to be confirmed & finished, God knows the details, & a second part time job income and legal to be resolved/settled.

As I listened while driving I was connected to the verse shared as I also lost my husband years ago. I was not sure who I was as I was always part of a couple. But then someone left me a key ring that had “on the wings of eagles”. I did not understand it at the time until one day at church when I hear Isaiah 40:31. It was God telling me I can do this and move on with him. I am remarried now and Now just took custody of my two nieces and feel the strength waning as I deal with them and my sisters addiction. Please pray for these girls and my sister.

Hello All, I have posted here over the last couple months. On 2/15 I am going to court for a DUI, reckless driving and drug charges from huffing canned air. I have been in Intensive outpatient recovery and am doing well. Please pray that things are lenient for me in court and that my family may recoup the money I have spent on my stupid actions. Pray for love and hope from God that my family and I will come through this redeemed and better for it. I really need all the good vibes and prayers I can get.

Prayer for my marriage. Early in our relationship we were both not right. I found a maturity in Christ and a faithfulness in our marriage. I constantly pray for my husband to except Christ and be a Godly husband and father. I ask to be joined in this prayer, I feel the stress of his actions is taking a toll on me mentally and physically. Pray that I keep faith and be able to hold out until his change has come. Pray that my mind moves away from how can I end this to how can I heal this.

I am a recovering Heroin addict who has been sober for just about 3 years. I recently regained full custody of my 2 sons last year and had my 3rd child, a daughter, in March of last year. Both of my son's have been transitioning well back into living with me, especially my oldest. However, my younger son, who just turned 7 has recently been having outbursts that I have never seen before. He is starting to cover his ears when we listen to Christian music, he doesn't want to say his night time prayers as much as he used to, and he is overall acting out in ways he has never done. Sometimes it's like he's not even in his own mind when he is having these outbursts. It's very scary as a mother to see your child going through this. I know it must be something emotional as he has never been this way. Please pray for my family and my son, that he will open his heart back up to God and learn how to talk about these feelings he is having. Please pray that God will give me the patience and understanding to help talk with him about this and help him get thru this. He has lived with his grandparents since he was a baby, when I originally lost custody, so he was with them for a long time. I just pray that he can get thru this and that this is just a phase.

For my marriage. For my husband Chris to have a Damascus Rd encounter with Jesus and that the scales and the blinders be removed in Jesus Name! For me to love like Jesus. For healing in both mine and Chris's emotions and soul. That we will have a godly, Christ-centered and Christ-focused marriage. For restoration and healing in my marriage. We've only been married one year and the devil has been relentless and we've allowed him access and given him a foothold and we wanna CLOSE that door and kick him out of our marriage.
