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 join me in praying for my husband who has been under a great amount of stress after losing his job almost 2 years ago and has not been earning enough to provide for our family. We are buried in debt because of this. Lord, please strengthen his faith, heal his heart of all pains and fortify his spirit. We know that you Lord will provide for our family and that you will continue to look after the needs of our children. In times of our weakness, keep us nearer to your Lord. Amen.

  3. I am going through a really hard time in my life... my significant other's family is ostracizing her and keeping her captive. They are pressuring her to choose between them or me because they think I am not good enough for their family's social status. they are even threatening to stop her education and send her away to another country...We have been together for two years now and we have never been a bad influence on eachtoher. we have been able to strengthen our faith and grow closer to God. We have performed extremely well in school and pursue our academic and professional priorities / goals. however, her parents do not see it that way and they are only focusing on how society will view them if we stay together. Please pray for us... all I can do now is open up my problems to God and Pray...

  6. Please help pray for my husband, Chris. We are currently living 4 hours away from each other due to his job. We have 3 teenage sons who are living with me. I have become my mother's caregiver due to her being recently diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. She tried cancer treatments and it caused more harm than good to her body. She is now in hospice. I cannot move our family right now as I am helping to take care of my dying mother. Our sons are in school and doing well here. My hope and prayer is that my husband be able to find suitable employment here so that we can live as a family again. I am having some difficulty trying to be a mother to our sons and a caregiver to my mother all the while helping my father who is somewhat cognitively challenged. I am exhausted when I wake up and exhausted when I go to bed at night. We need help. Please pray. Thank you! Also, please help pray for all other people who are in similar situations.

  25. Pagkalooban po Ninyo ako ng trabaho sa hotel o kaya sa restaurant bilang chef na hindi na ako padadaanin ng HR sa interview basta sasabihin nila sa akin ay tanggap na ako sa trabaho. Hindi ko po inaangkin na padadaanin pa ako sa interview para matanggap ako sa trabaho at hindi ko rin inaangkin na wala pa akong trabahong pinapasukan bago dumating ang December 2016. Gusto ko ung umaalis ako ng bahay araw-araw para magtrabaho kaya ko gusto magkatrabaho, gusto ko kagaya ako ng mga empleyadong namamasukan habangbuhay ng hindi magbabago ang isip ko basta pipiliin ko na habambuhay ako mamamasukan sa trabaho. Ang wish ko po ay magkaroon ako ng bagong kaibigan na isang chef. Gusto ko po kadamihan sa mga kaibigan ko at magiging kaibigan ko ay naglilingkod sa El Shaddai at isang chef sa hotel, restaurant, cruise ship at resort. Pinapangako kong magpapasalamat ako sa Inyo Panginoon at nangangako ako na magpapatotoo ako sa gawain ng El Shaddai na pinupuntahan ko sa Local Chapter.
