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. My husband needs your prayers & guidance. He is a incredibly kind person who forgives everyone. At his job, he works about 100 hours a week. He has been treated poorly and been taken advantage of by his most of his co-workers for 20 years. He has not left, because he has an unbelievable gift to frequently save lives when a patient is about to die in the trauma filled environment he works in. He credits God's intervention and faith with this gift. However, some of his co-workers recently crossed a line that he can not get past for a number of reasons. He is so sad and drained, my 4 teenage children and I want this very tolerant man to be happy. Please help him decide with full clarity if he should leave this job to go to another or stay where he is currently. Please help him make the decision swiftly and be at peace with his final choice.
    Thank you for your prayers.

  2. Heavenly Father,
    I Come before you today to ask for
    a financial blessing to improve my life.
    My faith keeps me strong,
    and I know you will provide for me
    and the people I love.
    I do not seek a large sum of money.
    I do not trouble you for unneeded comforts
    or luxury. I only ask for enough money
    to relieve my financial woes and ease this stress.
    Give me the means to do your work,
    and spread your Love. I have so much
    to give, if only I were allowed the chance.
    In your name I pray, Amen

  5. For wife to regain her speech. For the relationship between our family. For our marriage. For all of my son's issues.

    Joe, 8/26/2016
  6. Please pray for me. I remind myself for all the good things I already have in my life that should not be taken for granted, I have food, roof over my head, clothing, access to knowledge and live in peaceful surroundings - and I have my father and brother. I don't want to be pestering God (or those who read these requests) with all my needs but I am in a place of desperation and in a real turning point in my life where I need urgent help and guidance. I am grateful if any of you who read these prayer requests take me in your prayers.

    There is so much more I want in my life, I don't want to just exist, I want love, joy and happiness in my life. I want a purpose. It is just not about getting and having, I feel that I have so much more to give, but I have no outlet or chance to share and make use of these gifts, skills and feelings. I have become so anxious, discouraged and confused that I don't know what to do and my finances are so dire that the things I can do are very limited. I am mentally and psychologically exhausted and the burden and pressure are too much to bear. It's hard and I cannot get the help and support I need from my closest ones, who are troubled by themselves and face serious heath problems (I pray for their health and happiness too and I feel that I cannot support them well enough either). I have no friends or mentors - no one to confide in. So I have turned to God and have done it for long time. And right now I need His very visible and tangible help.

    Pray that He sees me worthy of His help. Pray that He leads me and guides me to have the life full of blessings, let the start to build that be today. Pray that He takes care of me and my closest ones. Pray that the feelings I have are not unfounded and if things are meant to be they will happen no matter what. Pray that my longings are answered, that He sees my needs and desires. Pray that my life will open to possibilities and happiness and that I wouldn't be so scared and anxious.Pray that I will meet my love and have partner in this life and have a family of my own to add in my life.

    Give me faith, hope and trust that with God's grace & will nothing is impossible and miracles do happen! Thank you!

    My unfaithful, confused husband has been involved with an angry, demanding woman the entire time we've been married. He is now planning to leave ME because I insisted that he get rid of her.
    My spineless husband has been giving in to the the unreasonable demands of this manipulative mistress for over 20yrs now. She is evil and ugly both inside and out, and does nothing for him but demand money and mistreat him - yet he refuses to see it! When I insisted that he leave her, he packed up and told me he's leaving ME instead. I cannot describe how heartbroken I am over this!
    Please pray that this confused man will realize that his vicious girlfriend is nothing but an unnecessary burden to him.
    Pray that Frank comes to his senses soon and develops the intelligence to finally get rid of that troublemaker for good, while re-committing to the marriage that God has has blessed and sanctioned for us.
