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 Amber (27); suffering with Manic Depression. She lives 'out of town' with her brother Skyler(25). Life is very difficult for her. Skyler wants to move out because caring for his sister is too much for him. This has made Amber more depressed.
    Please pray for her sister; Taylor (19) who lives in the same town (Las Vegas); Skyler, Amber and her parents: Patty and Augie ... for wisdom to support her AND for their own spiritual healing and growth. Very stressful for the whole family. This situation is clashing with lifestyle values. Praying for God's miraculous intervention and protection for Amber (and Taylor; under special circumstances.)

Thank You. From John King in the United Kingdom.

    John, 4/29/2016
  8. Please pray for my marriage. My husband has always been a man of great faith and a great father to our three children. Lately he has expressed how unhappy he is and he doesn't love me anymore. This is not the man I married nor the man my children look up to. He believes there is no chance of happiness in our marriage and happiness can be found elsewhere. My children have been through one separation and we reunited and moved out of state for a fresh start which isn't working. We still live together but he doesn't talk to me unless he has to. I know this is not God's plan for my family. Something unholy has a hold of him. Please pray for us.

    E, 4/29/2016

Amen

  16. Dear God,

    Please forgive me for my sexual sins -- especially that of homosexuality. I have been trying to discover myself and in the process have hurt you through my reckless and sinful acts. I am now scared that I may have contracted HIV. I may just be paranoid but anything can happen. I haven't been that sexually active and have just begun exploring my sexuality this year. Forgive me and have mercy on me, Dear God. I know it's no excuse but it's not like I have been sleeping around for years. But right now, I am really scared. I will be taking an HIV test in 6 months and I pray that you may deliver me from the virus. You are my Only Hope. My Only Answer. I don't want to hurt my family with this and my guilt is driving me crazy. I pray for peace of mind as well and comfort.

    Please forgive me, Lord and help me through my journey in life. Being a homosexual isn't easy and if it were up to me, I'd have it another way. But I was born this way and I know there's a purpose for it. Because of You. I pray again that you deliver me from HIV and give me another chance.

    Through Jesus' name, I lift up all of this. I believe in You and You have always been there for me. I love You.
