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 pray for my Lola who is currently in the ICU due to a brain stroke. Tomorrow, she will be having an operation which is tracheotomy so I hope and need your prayer to make it successful. I need your prayers that hopefully the tracheostomy will be temporary only because I want our life back to normal. I believe that our Heavenly Father will be right there at the side of my Lola helping her ease the pain. I believe that our Heavenly Father will make a way to bring back our normal life. I really need your prayers that tomorrow\'s operation will be successful and Lola will survive it. I hope that we will celebrate Christmas in our house with Lola being cheerful and happy. I hope that next year will be a good year to us and Lola can breath on her own without complications. I also pray that the medical team who will be conducting her surgery will do everything to make it successful. I believe that they are guided by God in their job that\'s why I know that everything will be fine. I hope and pray that Lola will recover from this illness or pain. She may be old, 83 years old but I want to be with her for a long time that\'s why I pray for her recovery. I believe that prayer is the powerful thing and only God knows what will happen next. I hope that you\'ll include this on your prayer. Thank You And God Bless.

All through the last five years I have been there for everyone of his needs and still miss our family. I am with someone new but we are not a family. I find myself wondering what I am suppose to do. I cry still nightly for my marriage and family. My family was all o ever wanted. I was a good wife forgave him and his affairs. Yet everyone said I was the problem even though I stayed home all the time and he went out everywhere. I don\'t know what the lord wants be to do. Does he want me to move on or wait patiently like my exhaust and has asked and just be ready for him in case he desides his new relationship doesn\'t work out. He is so much happier than me and I barely want to live most days for the past five years. Please pray the lord will tell me what to do. How can I be happy or find love and happiness
