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, heal me. Heal me from my diabetes.

  4. I ask for prayers for my cousin RIchard health. He is in the hospital and seems to be getting worse with a infection. I ask for prayers for my son to overcome anxiety and do well during testing in college. I need prayers for myself. I suffer from depression and other things but I am really struggling with suicidal thoughts right now I keep praying but I am scared of loosing my life. I am scared of losing my appeal with social security disability. Please pray for me that I win my appeal and can continue receiving my benefits. Not being able to work since six years ago and living in pains and having to depend on others has really depressed me because I never could have imagined being in this bad situation with my mental and physical health problems and being denied from social security is just devastating. I also pray for others like me and I pray for everyone else and may your prayer request be answered too.

  8. I recently have been going through tough times. Lost my job. Same day I lost my job, my lady friend indicated she no longer wanted to be with me. Finances are very tough. Have fallen into, which I believe is deep depression. Everyone is indicating economy is getting better but jobs are difficult to attain. Highly educated individual but can’t seem to obtain a viable offer. I try to pray and ask for his help but nothing is happening. I don’t know if I’m praying incorrectly or if I am. I’ll be honest, I’ve even questioned is God really listening. And if he is listening, why is he not answering prayers. I know it’s wrong for me to have those thoughts. But I’m very frustrated. I’ve been looking up scriptures and some healing words, but still frustrated. I know God says ask and you shall receive. Ask for forgiveness and he will. I’m not just asking for myself but for my two children as well. Thank you all. God bless.
