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. I am a divorced mother of two. I have been out of a relationship for a while now. Two months ago this guy came into my life. I know that God put him there. He makes me happy and knows how to make my bad days better. We have become real close friends. If it is meant for us to be in a relationship together then please pray that God will make that happen. Let this guy start to show his affection for me. I care for him and I just want to know if he feels the same way.
