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. Lord please give me peace of heart and mind. You that are the God of the impossible cure my mental illness and rid me of my loneliness and despair. Give me true friends and when I'm able give me a job so I can give retribution to those who need. I would like to be married also. I ask you for the blood of Jesus, Amen.

  9. With appreciation I humbly ask for the prayers of the community regarding my career path. I was fortunate to obtain my position over two years ago in a field that is becoming progressively more difficult to break into (Licensed Attorney). The position provides government (judiciary) benefits for my family and most importantly my two beautiful children. However, it is not a very fulfilling position and is considered rather pedestrian. Plus the pay will make it very difficult for my family in the near future. More importantly, I feel that I am not serving God and his people in the capacity I believe I am capable of. I have networked and interviewed and am consistently told that personality-wise I would be hired, but for my lack of hands on litigation experience. I cannot obtain the hands on experience without someone or a firm taking a chance and hiring me. I have attempted to branch out on my own and honestly have not allowed God to lead me. I have lost faith and for that I am truly sorry. I ask for your prayers that I may once again experience the calming effect of faith in the Lord. I ask for strength during this time so that I can avoid discouragement. Mostly, I ask for patience while the Lord's plan works itself out.

    Thank you for your time and prayers. I will be praying for all of you as well.

    Dan, 1/9/2017
