It hurts me to see a man I thought I knew, not care about the vows he made with me and You, Lord. It hurts me to see how he doesn't seem to care about his sons well being. Please come into his life and show him that you still will accept him if he want back in your life. I am accepting he is gone from my life and feel that you knew I couldn't survive anymore of his continual neglect and disrespectful ways, not only to me and my son, but to You, especially. Please keep my son and I safe and give us the grace to find our way through this so that we can start appreciating this life that you gave us. We are living for you, Lord and by doing so we will see the beauty in this life that you have given us and one day be able and ready to join you and my precious son and sons brother in heaven. Thank you Lord for everything you have given us, whether it was hard to understand the reasons, I know they are to lead us down a path that guides us to You on the way to our everlasting home. Amen

    Thank you 

      In Jesus name I pray uprightly

     I am truly thankful to God for all I have and have had, I believe in my heart my prayers are also what is right for Sean and I as well, as my heart and soul feel to cry out for them, with God's help and blessing let it all be so.

     

     

     

     

    Let what seems it may be impossible be possible with you God, let a way be made for this to be right and to happen for Sean and I with each other, show Sean and I how to love each other for our life times give Sean and I both the desire to do so, keep the love Sean and I said we shared alive in Sean's heart, in us, let it be strong and different from others enough to guide Sean and I back to each other, help Sean and I with this. I know You blessed Sean and I greatly with each other and our love for each other, mercifully bless Sean and I this again with each other please.

  24. Linda is going to a work fair on Saturday 4/23. Please pray for her that is is able to get a job

    Linda, 4/23/2016
  25. I would like to request prayer for myself and a guy who is a like a big brother to me. He's the person that I'm closest too and the relationship I have with him is very special to me. But lately we've been encountering obstacles in our relationship; we live in different countries; he works 70+ hours a week and doesn't have a lot of time to talk with me; we don't get to see each other often. Not only are we are we distant geographically, but I feel we are becoming distant in our friendship. Normally this kind of thing doesn't bother me but this person is very important in my life and I love him so much and his absence in my life really hurts me. We've also had other problems in our relationship. I would like to pray for healing of this relationship. Even though he's not my brother biologically, in my heart he'll always be my big brother. I also pray that our fraternal bond will only become stronger in spite of the geographic distance. He can also use prayer too because he has personal issues going on in his life. His name is Joe.

    Thank you for your prayers and care,
    Pierce
