    Plan for me. I give you my hands to do your work and eye to see what is needed to be done and my arms and heart to comport the elderly, Help me lease o Lord for your guidance in what to do......with what I have.

    I pray help in finding my path and career. I pray that my depression and anxiety are lifted away. Guide me into a position where I can assist and help those in need and have meaningful life.

    Please Lord, Your help is greatly needed now more than ever. I am in such a turning point in my life that without Your help I am lost.

  25. Lord, I do know that You are working in my life, but sometimes it feels like such a heavy burden I carry. Help me lay it at your feet continually. When my singing voice a few years ago I was crushed. I could no longer cantor, so you lifted my spirit to sing your praises from the pews. Then, after 6 years, the doctor You led me to finally had a diagnosis, trachiorbronchial malacia. Then I knew why I couldn't sing. It's hard to sing when your trachea and bronchi collapse with each with each exhale. No cure. Need to reley on my Rock once more, more than usual that is. Prednisone induced diabetis along with 40 pounds,,,You kept/keep me breathing. You must have some more work for me to do. Please help me understand what it is. This is my prayer, O Lord, even with the onset of rheumatoid arthritis, there must be a way to continue to praise You in this life. Hear my plea, O Lord. Do not forsake the work of your hands. I praise You Lord for all the blessings You have bestowed on my beloved and I. Glory and praise to your name forever, Jesus, my Lord!

    Ann, 8/18/2016
