On Monday morning early, Phil will be flying to Calgary, getting a truck and going to load our things. Pray that angels surround him and the men who are going along. Pray that the men will be easy to find and Phil will find the right transportation, not have trouble picking up the truck or any problems with boarding the plane. Pray that the Chera's will be reasonable and will just talk it out, let us have our things and be done. We are expecting to need a police presence to be necessary. Pray that Phil will be able to hold his temper no matter what horrible things are said to him, that he will be honest and brave. Pray that loading will go smoothly and that they will get out of there with a minimum amount of trouble. Pray that they send police officers who will treat Phil with respect. The last ones did not. We are going to call them ahead of time. Pray that no one follows the truck when it leaves. We don't want them followed to the place we have arranged storage. Pray that everyone is in the right place at the right time and that there are no unexpected delays. Please, if God prompts you to pray about anything, pray! I will be holding my breath the whole time I am sure. Once this is done and my Mom and Dad's precious things are safe, perhaps we will be able to relax. Thank you all for keeping us lifted up. We surely need it and covet your prayers. vessie
Hi everyone, we ended up homeless at the first of the month and through the help of facebook friends, we managed to get to the Niagara Penninsula. We have two problems. First, the roof over our head is temporary so we need a home and a job in order to get back on our feet. Second, I am looking for any members that live in the Calgary, Alberta area for help. Our stuff is in garage in the North East. The landlord has stopped communication. We had a verbal agreement for rent and now he is claiming we had no such agreement. I believe a verbal contract is still binding in this country. Because I am sick and it was really, really cold in Calgary, I couldn't be out on the streets if there were no homeless beds available.. and there are not. So we have made it here... but we have to somehow try to reconnect us with our things. I am not even so worried about the replaceable things, it's the family treasures that break my heart. Please pray. If you live in the area and have a space for storage, please message me. Storage has been horrible since the flood and the rent on everything has doubled which is how we ended up homeless in the first place. If you are not rich, you can't afford Calgary. Unfortunately my doctors were there so that is where we ended up. The police say I need someone to go and see if my stuff is still there before they will go in and do anything. At the very least he has to let me know where it is and that it is safe. North East Calgary is all different ethnicities and I really didn't make any friends while I was there. Language was usually the barrier. I have contacted churches and agencies and the few people I do know. I don't know what happened to ~~~" Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times and brothers and sisters are born to help in time of need. LB"~~~ If you can't do any of these things, could you pass my situation on to your friends lists or to the other prayer lists. The stress of the whole situation is making my health issues worse and the home we are staying in is very full, very busy, and very hectic; all situations where lupus flares. So please, I am hoping if we all work together, we can find someone who is able to help. So we need someone to check on my things. I will let them know ahead of time, a storage area that is safe and affordable, (which right now is not much), a truck and people to join together to move it. I know God can provide all of these things so I am humbling myself and asking for your help. Thank you, vessie
Their son is getting married Friday and she has pneumonia and he the flu for a week! Rehearsal dinner is Thursday pm. Thank you
Please pray for my son. I can't give his name, but he is deploying soon with a special forces unit. Pray for his physical safety and also for his faith to be strengthened. He is struggling spiritually.
I am begging again for prayer. I am in a one year nightmare. In the midst I am to take the bar in July. Please pray I can concentrate to study. I am 52 and a single mom to a college sophomore (now) and went back to school. last year I asked to see the books and records of the company I own with my sisters (Pediatric Medicaid clinics). I have been pushed around and out for years by brother n law and CPA. All hell broke loose on me when I asked and went to see the small bit they showed me. They took my dad from my daughter and me (he has Parkinson's and they have been doing stuff behind his back) and made up lies to my parents. They then made up lies and I have been in a court battle foven early a year. They are getting my dad to sign papers when he doesn't know what he is signing. They have kept my income from me and have destroyed me financially. All my savings are gone on attorneys. All my daughters college savings are gone. Their goal to destroy me to keep me from looking at the books and to destroy my character my name nits daughters has been with massive lies. In the middle of it I graduated law school and now must take the bar. Please pray I can concentrate to study. Pray my daughter can continue in college. Please pray for money for us as I am reduced to nothing. Please pray lies are exposed. Thank you.
I recently discovered I have a form of OCD called scruplocity in which I am constantly obsessing about direction. I have my Bachelor's and since I got out of school it has just been jumping from one plan to another (working though_. I don't really want to go into all of the details. I am exhuasted of being in this limbo spot. I was listening to a John Eldridge sermon on desire and I had trouble even pinpointing what desires God has put on my heart. I really enjoy travel and missions, and that's the only thing I can think of. Parents are very against this. Prayers?
I've been having pain in both my arms, possibly tendonitis, and I have 3 little kids, so it makes everything more challenging. I'm asking for prayer for complete healing.
My husband has his own residential design and building business. Jobs in this field have been sparse (more like non-existent!) over the past 5 years! We have exhausted any savings we had and are in desperate need for jobs to bring in revenue. I'd sure appreciate any prayers on our behalf, asking the Lord to keep us strong in His strength and trusting Him in the midst of the very real possiblity of losing our material possessions! Pray that we would learn as the apostle Paul did to be content with such things as we have, and to find our "all in all" in Christ Jesus! Thank you so much!
my youth group is dying. can you please please pray for it? The main problem is that I feel like we're not going to go there to learn about God, even I go there out of obligation a lot of the time. There's no passion and there's no desire right now, and i feel like the people that go there go because they feel like they should, they have friends there, or their parents make them, and that what we learn is more like a list of dos and don'ts than anything else. also, several people have stopped going, so please pray that they will either come back or find another church. also pray that my youth leader will have wisdom when he speaks and that the new youth leadership team (consisting of myself and several other upperclassmen) will be able to lead this well and piece our youth group back together. My youth group is pretty tight-knit, and I've known a lot of these people for 6 years; watching some of my friends that used to come every week and that seem to love God stop coming and stop caring really makes me upset. thanks!
Please continue to pray for this horrific situation I am in. Please please pray. A judge here has signed a judgment that no judge in the United States would ever sign. It has all been done with such wicked evil lies and vengeance. Please please pray that God would intervene. I have been lied about, maligned, slandered, and the evil and fear is great. There are so many lies that it is hard to bear up. My daughter was thrown into this too. And every week it is another pack of lies going into motions into the court. Please please pray. Please pray. I am begging for prayer. Please pray. Pray this Judge stops in his tracks and rethinks what is going on and drops this whole thing. Please also pray truth comes ringing out. Please pray for my house and that my home won't be taken from me and that the other judge rules it is my home and I own it and I pay $150k and no more. Please pray for my daughter and her well being.
The Enemy is attacking my friend (a Believer) with many fears and doubts. She is seeking counsel of her godly parents, but says as soon as they togeter address one issue, another takes it's place. My dear friend is exhausted, discouraged, and battling much anxiety.
A one-year-old boy from my church, Isaiah, was just diagnosed with leukemia. His parents are living at the hospital now and their names are Bob and Angie. Please pray for miraculous healing, provision as they are not working, peace and strength for them. Thank you!
Dear friends, I am desperate for my heart to be soft and gentle. Fear and shame are my worst enemies. The emotions well up before I can seem to put out the fire. Please pray for the strength in the Holy Spirit to put this emotional rebellion down so I and others can feel safe, and I can win the war I've battled and been losing.
I am the principle wage earner in our family, and so the health insurance for our family is with me. We have also just recently been approved to adopt. I lost my job the week before Easter. Please pray that God will send my forever job and that I will only accept the job that He has sent. Thanks in advance.
Sarah was burned over 86% of her body is 3rd degree burns from a bonfire accident that she poured gasoline on and the can exploded on to her. Her sister Ashlee was also burned a little bit. Please pray for physical healing and emotional healing for her and that her and her family would come to know our Lord Jesus.
For me to love my husband and kids the way Christ loves them, even on the days when ALL 4 of them have the stomach flu.

Thank you and God bless.
My best friend Mark has full custody of his 9 year old daughter Ella. She sees her mom every other weekend in Ohio. Her mom is unstable, very unstable. This time, her mom refused to return her this past Sunday and now they are missing. Mark is on his way to Ohio right now to meet the police to see if they can find Ella. A decision will be make whether to issue an amber alert hopefully tonight or early tomorrow. They need all the prayer they can get. Ella has been through so much by the courts in Ohio insisting that her mom still get unsupervised visitation even though she causes mental and emotional abuse of Ella. Mark is going back to court in the morning to seek suspension of visitation but this has been tried before and failed. Ella has to see a counselor to deal with all the drama she has been put through in her short 9 years. Please pray for all those involved, including her mom, that Ella will be returned safely and God will work in this situation to bring about some kind of change to benefit Ella and her family. Thank you!
We were robbed last night--they just took my jewelry (I hope the thief is being blessed by my large collection of crosses :) Please pray that my daughter will feel safe in our home. We were not home when the robbers came, so we are physically safe, but it is very violating feeling to have been robbed. She is 11 and has had very unpredictable past. Thanks so much Sisters.
Please please please pray that I will get over the guy I like (and be happy that I've gotten over him) since I'm not allowed to date until college. He asked me out earlier,(and i declined) so now it's kind of awkward, because I know that I could be dating him but I'm not. I also feel like whatever our friendship is now is hindering my relationship with God. anyways, I just feel like I should definitely only be viewing him as a friend, and that this whole romancey thing was a trial that I need to get through. please please please pray for me! it means a lot :)
A sister in Christ and I are coming late to the party here at the Roman's Project. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will empower us to achieve this goal of memorizing and obsessing over His words. Thank you and God bless.
Please pray that I will be faithful in my memorization and that God will provide an accountability partner or someone to memorize along with me.
We've been traveling away from our country of service for 6 months, first to have our third baby, then to visit family and friends, and now to get our visas back into the country. (My husband is an orchardist, and we live in Central Asia ministering to an unreached people group.) I've been working hard to keep up with this year's Romans Scripture Memory Project while we've been on the road, but I've been struggling on broken sleep for the last 5 months from feeding our baby girl, and I'm feeling the effects! Pray for diligence with memorizing Scripture (I'm caught up to Romans 1:16, finally!), and for help getting everyone back into the routine, especially getting my 5 and 3-year-olds back into starting the day with Scripture. Thank you!
It's tax time again, and my parents have to have in again. We are really struggling right now, as my dad's work is seasonal. He will start again in a month or so, but until then, we just have a little left from last year. It is such a stressful time for my parents and it can make the whole house up tight. So my prayer request is that God will provide and that my parents will trust Him completely. I know God will/has provided for us, but sometimes we misuse what He has given us. Thank You, God, for your continued mercies.
Please pray for the salvation of 4 of our grown children. They were raised in a christian home, their father is the pastor of our church. Only 1 child, Hannah is serving the Lord in Mexico, thank you Lord! The other 4 are doing their own thing and don't seem to care or want to serve God. In fact, they have turned their backs on God. This is such a heartache for us! Please pray for their salvations and that they would return to the Lord! Thank you in advance for your prayers.
First, want to thank all of you for praying. Thank you so much. Please continue to pray. Pray for my attorney Jeff. Pray he will be strong and courageous and fight for truth. Please pray for my family that they would repend and turn from this wicked sin they have done to my daughter and myself. Please pray for strength for me. I am weary. I wake up in the night and can't stop crying. It is months and months now. Please pray for Mike, a Christian counselor seeing my dad -- please pray he will intervene and not buy into the garbage of "don't want to get involved." Please please pray for God to intervene quickly. Thank you.
brad and michelle seperated on Friday. He has been a habitually liar to her and she is at her wits end. he also recently confessed to her that he's felt like he has at itmes been attracted to men. so...... that was hard to hear after 10 years of marriage.
they both attend our church - but not sure they are really saved - might just be churched. they're are 2 sweet daughters in the middle of this. please pray for reconciliation, repentance and that their hearts would be reunited in love for the Lord.
a precious and newly wed couple form our church is struggling in their marriage. please pray Kitty will respond to God's love in her life and not give up on her mariage and family. that God would cut off all counsel she may be getting about walking away for her marriage. that desire would rise up to fight for what she believed they once had. also that she will respont to our many attempts to get ahold of her. that TODAY she would meet with me.
For duane that he would wrap his arms around the call God has on his life as a husband and father. that God would birth resolve in him to love, be changed, and to sTAY and fight for his marriage as well.
There is a lot of destiny on the line here- including 3 precious kiddos who need mom and dad to work it out. thank you!
My father in law was diagnosed about 18 months ago with pulmonary fibrosis. We do not know how much longer he has. My husband is beginning (?) the grieving process of losing his earthly father. They are best friends in many ways. Although my husband doesn't "need" his father (i.e., we are in our early 50's), he is dreading the separation. I ask for prayers for my father in law's comfort and peace -- and prayers for my husband as he goes through this difficult loss. Also for me to know how to help them both, but especially my husband. Blessings!
What an encouragement to have learned along the way that God does hear, care, and answer prayers.
I am 57 years old and still struggle with PTSD from severe child abuse. The most lingering effects are instrusive thoughts which are anxiety provoking for me....I have started EMDR, a treatment used for soliders returning from the war, and it has been effective but difficult to open up frozen areas of trauma. If I don't address the trauma, the intrusive thoughts are worse.
God is my refuge and I am in the Word daily and in prayer, too. He has saved me from what could have been an unproductive, torturous life, but the residual effects still bother me. Do I just try to ignore the thoughts and keep going? Wisdom, God, wisdom.
Please, please continue to pray. I am in a nightmare and can't seem to have any relief per below's request. My father has Parkinson's and some dementia. Last March I asked to see the books and records of three clinics which I own with my two sisters. They live out of town, I live here near my parents. I'm a single mom and have raised my daughter by myself with no help from her father. She is 18 and a freshman (Dean's list) at college. When I asked to see the books the nightmare started. They immediately sequestered my dad whom we are very close to. He was an everyday part of my life and my daughter's. Mom doesn't speak to me for years at a time. Has done this for as long as I remember (months when I was young). She was not speaking to us at this time. My sister's took my dad's cell phone and all means he had to communicate with my daughter and me. He is the only father figure she has ever known. She graduated high school and there was no communication with us after May. In August after taking her to college my parents filed a restraining order filled with lies. Horrible lies. It is my sisters and brother-in-law's effort to keep my dad from talking to me and me talking to my dad. It is horrid. I am in my third year of law school fixing to graduate. Because of this I don't know if I can even take the bar and will come out of school $40k in debt with student loans at 52 years of age. My savings and my daughters are being depleted to fight this horrendous pack of lies. They even threw her name in without any due process and not being a party and are saying they don't want to ever have contact with us ever again as long as they live. It is of the devil. It is from my brother in law working through the attorney. I have found out my father has no idea of what is going on. A check I wrote to him for payment on my home (that I've been purchasing from them for 16 years) has a forged indorsement and was put into an account that is not my mom nor my dad's. I am begging for help. Please God, please help. I can't go on much longer. I have cried all day for months. I can hardly finish up school and study. I need prayer desperately. Please please pray for me and my daughter. This was the only father figure she has known. We have been thrown out like a pack of garbage with the most horrendous lies a person could possibly endure. It is a destruction of my life, my character, my reputation, not to mention my daughter, a 4.2 graduate in high school and making the Dean's list at Wake Forest in the midst of this tragedy. She needs prayer as she feels completely rejected save for the Lord and me. Please please pray.
My daughter miscarried yesterday at 10 weeks. They had an ultrasound the week before which looked great. We are all sad , of course. Pray for her now as she recovers, to see God's tender care, and to not doubt his love. This was their first pregnancy. Pray for me today as we share with grandparents and other family and Friends. Thank you.
I lost my husband on May 26th, last year.....my chidlren, their Daddy. It seems like forever but just yesterday. Never did I ever imagine that I would have to walk this journey so young in my life. You know, through it all, I have been the most sad when I think about what my husband is missing out on. Each and every day I wonder what our next steps should look like. Some days, you just wonder why we go through all our earthly motions.....just to see it leave us. Please pray for us to trust in our Heavenly Father to show us the way. Your prayers will be such a blessing.
Are you a widow? I would love to fellowship with you as a way of encouraging one another as well.
We are in the process of adoption. We have gone through everything so far, now comes the home study. Please pray for us as we go through this process. It has been a very long road, it seems, but we pray for patience, pray that we select the child God has in mind for us, and that our health will stay good.
Please pray for my daughter who left home at age 16. She is presently 18 and living in an abusive relationship with an older girl. She is completely isolated from family and friends and I would love to have some connection with her, but we've heard nothing from her in the last 3 months. Please pray that she has the courage to leave and return home, but above all that she will be kept safe and close to God!

I have been having issues with pain in my lower stomach and I'm not sure exactly what's going on. I also had blood test results that showed my hemoglobin dropped without any explanation and my B12 levels were unusually high. I am being retested in a few weeks. Please pray that all of my levels would be perfect and that whatever is going on in stomach/bowels would be healed!
please be in prayer for April and Lee who lost there baby at 8 weeks this mornig. she is in recovery from a DNC. They are a young couple and new to our church. This would have been their second baby.
I wanted to ask for prayer for my family. My husband and I have an opportunity to spend a good portion of our summer (6-10 weeks!) serving in Haiti with our 6 and 8 year old boys. We are so excited, but there are many details that need to be addressed like fundraising to cover the mortgage while we are gone, finding a house sitter, getting shots, getting the ok from work, etc...
If you could please pray for God's hand to guide us and that everything would fall into place.
After a surgery, I have been battling a hospital acquired bacterial infection. I have been tried on a number of antibiotics to no avail. Since then I have also been diagnosed with a chronic auto-immune disorder. They are talking now about having to do IV antibiotics daily through a PICC line. Please pray that God would somehow help me use every encounter to glorify Him and that I will keep hopeful that He is working all things together for His good.
My cousin's youngest son- almost 3 months old is at the ER right now with problems breathing. they're concerned it maybe pnmoniea. please pray for healing and a quick recovery. peace for the momma and his grandmama.
As you pray for Brian P, request below, please also pray for Brian B. He is a 21-year-old boy who lived with us when he was a teenager. He left us and became addicted and ended up in jail twice. He was just released on probation. Please pray for strength as he has repented and seeks to live a sober and responsible life. Pray that the Holy Spirit will help him to resist the temptation to give up and go back to his past ways.
Please pray for my son, Joe. He has struggled with drugs and other dangerous behaviour for a few years now. Last year he was in the hospital for 2 drug overdoses. I pray for him everyday and many times a day. He thinks he is invincable but, really its God's grace that is keeping him alive. He moved out a few months ago when he turned 18. Because he doesn't like our rules. He needs salvation and better friends! He has lost several friends in the last couple years to suicide and drug overdose. I can't keep praying for him alone, need others to help with prayer. God is Good and Faithful and he knows Joe's heart and what it will take to change him! Thank you.
brian is a good friend and a godly man delivered from a hard core drug addiction 10 years ago. he andhis wife had a baby 8 months ago - 4 months ago he relapsed into addiction. he has re-entered a christian disciplship program for people with life controlling issues. pray for a fast detox and a contrite heart. that God would melt his heart like wax in His presence. for a complete break through and healing from this addiction, hurts, and unforgiveness. And for him to be reunited with his family.
a dear friend and single widowed mother was in a tragic car accident 7 days ago. her son is 4 or 5. her husband died of a heart attack 7 short months after they were married. she is recovering form brain trauma, emergency srugery on her spline and diaphram, and a fractured skull. she is slowly coming out of an induced coma and begin to mover her limbe. pray for a full recovery and complete and healthy reunion with her son.
It's going to be bitterly cold in my city tonight and we're supposed to get a few inches of snow. My husband and I plan to go out and try to minister to the homeless, you know, giving them rides to shelters if they want to go, giving them supplies if they don't & also picking up people waiting at bus stops & taking them where they need to go. I'm trying to get members of my church involved but they are unwilling, saying that it's useless because they'll all already be in shelters, as though no one ever slips through the cracks! I'm feeling the burden of the 99 sheep found - 1 sheep still lost parable but I'm also feeling frustrated and discouraged (and if I'm honest, sort of stupid). Please pray with me: that I'll go out and do what God's put on my heart with no thought of how useless my friends say it is & that the hearts of my brothers and sisters will be opened to the fact that there is never, ever a day that there isn't someone alone who needs to be brought in out of the cold. Blessings on all of you :)
I'm praying that God will give my father a rapid recovery from his recent surgery to remove a cancerous portion of his colon, and that he will have a complete recovery from the cancer.
could use encouragement on using scripture typer. it says I have to type at a speed to make it count and this is so stressful. no way I can figure out how to do the first letter of each word so I type them all out and of course have to go back and correct spelling and punctuation. makes me crazy that it capitalizes if I miss as I automatically go back and do that. I know more verses than it says I know but I can't type fast enough to satisfy the system. any thoughts? thanks
My beloved mother passed away 6 years ago. My stepfather who had been in my life for 23 years of my 34 years....he was so grief-stricken that he remarried his ex-wife in order not to be lonely and continued his alcoholism. I held onto the hope he'd show interest in me and want to continue our relationship but he dodged most chances to see me. When I called him after not talking for a year or more - asking him about my mom's medical problems b/c now I was having similar problems....it was clear he did not want me on the phone talking to him. It showed me that he closed the door long ago and I've been hanging onto a false dream.
so I just wrote an email to him...explaining all this....and that I was relying on God's grace and strengeth b/c this was so hard. I said goodbye to him....but he has belongings of mine, important ones, that I kept at his and Mom's house. He has them and I need them back. So we have that to do. I asked him to return my belongings and we would end our relationship.
This pains me to no end. I have never voluntarily ended a family relationship like this. And this holds so much history. I have the false notion that this is a tie to my mom that I will lose. That is partly true. He is a huge tie to my mom and I don't have many ties left. But I have my mom with me every day and I will see her in Heaven and spend eternity with her. I must remember that.
So please pray that I can have the strength, grace, and perserverence to go through with this. To end the relationship that he ended so long ago. And to realize that I am NOT losing my mom all over again. I am letting go of a toxic relationship.
This is hard. My hands shake, tears fall. How can you let go of a "parent" of 23 years? It seems so foreign to me.
and yet...I know it needs to be done. I've prayed about this for a long time. I have support from other family....
thank you for your prayers.
For reasons too long to list, i have zero confidence in my ability to memorize. i feel i need to do this, i want to obey and love God. would you pray that i not let my fear and doubt or fear if failing (me, you, esp God) stop me from doing this. thank you.
Please pray for my 11yr old son. It will be three years in March that we adopted. He has reactive attachment disorder. In the past, January & February have been terrible months for our family with his behaviors escalating and the pattern is continuing. Dakota talks with a counselor, etc. I am seeking prayer for us as we parent him through this difficult season for wisdom, strength & teamwork. Pray that Satan doesn't get a foothold in our home & that our home is safe & Christ's peace & grace floods our home & hearts.
