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 the Lord will bless and restore the love between me and my girlfriend Marisa before things fall apart. I dont want to lose our relationship. Pray for better communication and understanding for a happy relatuinship.

    Matt, 12/17/2014
  2. My Heavenly Father, please protect me from my own fears, insecurities and lack of faith in your love for me and in your powers. My Father, i place myself in your care. Take charge of me, direct my feelings, emotions, thoughts and my path in the direction you have chosen for me. Lift me out of every such situation that is not approved by you and not in your plans for me. My Father, fill me with your love and send the Holy Spirit to be my companion so i need no other. Take away my loneliness and need for anyone outside your plans. If you have chosen a life of solitude without family or friend, then transform me, my needs and desires, so i can lead the life you have decided for me. My Father, transform my relationship in the way you deem fit and help me move on, without any negativity within myself. I want to be happy so pls release me of all such expectations that fill me with sadness. Protect me from deception and treachery, pretences that affects my state of mind and heart

  5. I truly need a miracle today. It has been nine days since my boyfriend said he no longer loves me. I know he does love me but it is his low self esteem & insecurities that take over his mind. I know he never means to leave but he cannot control his mind. We do love each other and he is asking our many friends have they heard from me and they have asked him if he is going out for New Year\'s and his response was, \"I can\'t without my dance partner\". They told him well you did a fine job of stopping that from happening. I\'m asking that the holy spirit heal him and return him to me immediately. I truly love him he is my sole mate and I his.
