  11. Please pray for my girlfriend. We have been together for over a year...I am catholic and she is a protestant. We both love each other very much but she is drifting away from her church and lately has not shown interest in going at all now. She is a great singer, who sang at her parish before but has lost interest in that as well. She says that she does not feel a part of it, that she feels empty inside, and I know she hasn't been able to let things go that have happened in her past. I've invited her to my church before, but she doesn't like it. I ask that you all pray for her; that the Lord may touch her heart and reignite her spirit. Please pray for Liz.

  14. Here goes. Everyday, I pray for a miracle—that Sarge will remain cancer-free and live longer than any dog ever has. We've recently observed some symptoms that suggest he may be out of remission, and have scheduled an appointment with the oncologist for further diagnostic imaging. I believe in the power of prayer, and I am asking you to please consider praying for us if you can. One song can change a moment, one idea can change a world, one step can start a journey, but a prayer can change even the impossible.

    Leisha, 1/24/2016

  16. I don't even know why I am typing this request. I pray all the time, I study the word, I fast and yet no relief. I beg for prayer and nothing chaNew. I am close to calling it quits with my relrionship with the Lord. Nothing seems to change at all. My husbands left us months ago and he had made no contacts it me except to be mean. had all the money no worries in sight. He doesn't pray and yet I am th one being surrounded my problems and gre hurt and pain. Once again I don't even know why I am typing this because i am hopeless. Absolutely hopeless. Trying to be a good Christian doesn't pay off and apparently having faith as small as a mustard seed doesn't. Hopeless

    "Blessed are the merciful .... for they shall receive mercy."
    Matthew 5:7
    Prince of Peace,
    My heart is clenched tight as I come before You .... I admit that I am holding a grudge; this born of deep hurt and overwhelming pain caused by an uncaring person .... I cannot seem to go an hour without thinking of the injury I have suffered .... and each time I do; my heart glazes over again ..... hardening a little more each time ..... 'Love your neighbour as yourself' .... that sounded so easy when I was a child .... now it seems impossible! ..... O Lord, my Heart is a rock; weighing heavier each day ..... Please help me to soften it today .... Thank You God ....
    Do you find it difficult to show Mercy to someone who does not deserve it?? ..... Yet, no one deserves Mercy ....
    "Blessed are the Peacemakers ... for they shall be called Children of God." Matthew 5:9
    "Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude .... It does not insist on its own way .... nor is it irritable or resentful ...." 1 Corinthians 13:4-5
    "Let no evil talk come out of your mouths; but only what is useful for building up as there is need .... so that your words may give Grace to those who hear .... " Ephesians 4:29
    "Be angry ... but do not sin .... and do not let the sun go down on your anger ... " Ephesians 4:25-26
    Heavenly Father,
    The change has to start in my heart .... I need to do the hard work of forgiving, of understanding, of caring, and of giving .... But, for that to happen Lord, I need You to walk beside me ... every step of the way, please .... Thank You .... Amen
    "Then Peter came to Him and asked, 'Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? .... Seven times?' ..... Jesus replied, 'No, not seven times .... but seventy times seven!' "
    Matthew 18:21-22 (NLT)
    "Bear with one another, and if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you .... so, you also must forgive." Colossians 3:13
