Praying Hands

Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.

Philippians 4:6

Let Us Pray

Together, let us pray for the needs of our brothers and sisters.
Please remember these intentions in your daily prayers.

  1. Please pray for my son James who is a chronic drug abuser of prescription drugs. He\'s been in the hospital three times this week for drug overdoses. He\'s hooked on hydromorphone, valium, atavan, immovane and many other narcotics which he gets freely from his dr. His dr. knows he\'s a drug addict but continues to prescribe these medications to him. Please pray that the dr. will STOP this unethical prescribing. Please pray that my efforts to get my son help will succeed. Please pray that my son will want to get help and surrender and have a conversion experience. Please pray for time or my son... Thank you Lord for keeping my Son James alive. I know you have a plan for his life.

    Phillip Pettit, 9/30/2014
  3. Please pray for me I am highly stressed with my new job as a teacher. I am having regrets about my recent change in career. I am trying my best to learn this job and it is very hard without any guidance. my biggest fear is failing as a teacher. My last was highly stressful and there was never any separation from the job after hours. I was also treated unfairly and I was no longer happy with the constant turnover on the job. Please pray for me that I can succeed with this position. I feel like I took this job due to my husband\'s changing jobs and no longer having health insurance. I know that my husband needed the health care do to his health. I pray that he get a better paying job with benefits so he can take care of everything. I ask that you pray that I have better control of my class and learn better techniques of teaching. I am also due for an observation and I am so scared because this is my first time teaching and I do not know what to expect.

  4. Raised as a Catholic child I lost my way many years ago. At age 55 I\'m lost and confused and searching for answers. I\'m \"learning\" to pray again and hoping for answers to my many questions. I also pray for the many that have way less than I.

  6. Please pray for the Wilbur Family to stay intact, My husband has a mental illness called sin infecting his brain and causing him to hurt our family in many bad ways. He is in denial about these sins and sees no blame or guilt within himself. We are due to go to court in 2 weeks because of how violent and abusive he is. We could lose all six of our children because of it. My youngest is just 8 months old and is fully breastfed. I fear leaving her in a foster home somewhere where she could be neglected and abused. My 2nd youngest is 2 years old and often runs away in public and plays near the street. I fear that a foster family will not watch over him very well and he may end up dead because of it. I fear for the safety and well being of all of my children if they are taken away. the world is turning ugly and my husband is becoming more and more abusive. Please pray for me and my children. All of my family is dead and i have nobody to turn to for help. thank you and God Bless you ministry.

  11. I am shine from Bangalore. I am in a big crises. I did registered marriage with shwetha an Hindu girl after a long love life of 7 years. She agreed to become Christian and live with me up to the end of life in any difficulty. we did register in-front of my parents and relatives. after few months my parents informed her family the same and told them to make the marriage ceremony officially. some how they agree for that. but she changed her mind due to some unknown reasons. Now she is telling that not to get marry. I am preparing the paper works to go to Canada as she agreed for the same to go there and live together. I used to pray to God Jesus a lot before and after registration. Now the situation is like that I cannot leave her and get marry another girl nor she is ready. I don\'t know how it happened suddenly. she likes her mother a lot. may be she don\'t want to separate from her. No body is there in support of me now. I believed her and prayed to God. I am 34 year old. Another marriage in this age I cannot even imagine. more over it will lead to legal actions.There is no way left in-front me to get her back and live together for ever. I have a strong believe that things will get sort out if you pray for me. Please pray for the things to set right and getting marry with Shwetha in front of God Jesus in Church and live a good family life until the end. Awaiting to see the miracle from heaven to resolve the issue.I know my God never Leave me.
