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 company is forcing me to transfer to another country and this means I will need to pull my son out of the great Christian school he is currently in. I am currently looking for work locally to avoid this transfer and keep my son in this faith-based school. Please pray that I may find a new job soon. I have applied for a few jobs I am fully qualified for. Please pray I will get an interview soon. God bless

  2. I have lost my faith with all that I am going through. I have been unemployed for nearly 6 months and my unemployment will run out the end of the year. I have done everything I can to find a job, but I am losing faith. In addition, my father and brother both suffer mental illness. I have been there for them, but I have to focus on getting a job now. I have prayed throughout this difficult time, but I am angry now and don\'t understand why I am being put through this. Please help restore my faith and confidence in myself and in God. Thank you.

    Pray for my Mom and Dad who are struggling to accept Gods call for me
    God bless

  7. Please pray to research and to help make known to the public more information about the 64 AD Great Christian Holocaust by the Romans that lasted for over 250 years. Most people have never heard about this 64 AD Great Christian Holocaust, and they know nothing about it.

    In 64 AD the Roman Emperor Nero falsely accused the Christians of intentionally burning Rome, and then following this in 64 AD almost all of the first original Christian leaders were all horribly murdered all at about the same time. And even after Emperor Nero was dethroned in 68 AD, the 64 AD Christians were never forgiven for Nero\'s lies, and the 64 AD Christian Holocaust continued for over another 250 years.

    Is there any special significance in the fact that the 70 AD Jewish Diaspora happened on the Jewish Seventh Sabbatical year after the starting first year of the 64 AD Great Christian Holocaust by the Romans that began in 64 AD, and then continued for over 250 years ?

    64 AD = year 1 Great Christian Holocaust
    65 AD = year 2
    66 AD = year 3
    67 AD = year 4
    68 AD = year 5
    69 AD = year 6
    70 AD = year 7 Jewish Diaspora

    Do you think that there should be a museum that gives information about the 64 AD Christian Holocaust ?

    Could the US Holocaust Memorial Museum offer some future new displays that would give information to the public about the 64 AD Christian Holocaust by the Romans that lasted for over 250 years ?

    Another possible connecting link between Judaism and the 64 AD Great Christian Holocaust is that all of the original Christian leaders prior to 64 AD had preferred to live in and to have their Christian headquarters in Israel, but they all mostly stayed far away from Israel because they all feared the possibility of a Christian Holocaust that would be sponsored by the Jewish leadership.

    Are there any other associations with Jesus Christ being resurrected in three days after his death, and with the Christian Church also seemingly being resurrected in about 300 years after Jesus resurrection ?

    B, 11/18/2014
  8. Lord, please cure my baby\'s illness. He is suffering from cough and runny nose and headache. Please heal his symptom and help him to go to his normal life.

    I came across my severe anxiety among other women. I was so humble. I had to be away from them. Please help me keep my confidence of myself and encourage me to keep doing and going for my goal and my plan.

    Please help me pass the exam smoothly and get our jobs very soon. Please grant us health, peace and satisfaction.

    Please help my child recover his health as soon as possible. Lord, thank you and amen.

    Father, we are nothing without you, which is why we always come to you for everything.
    My prayer is that my baby brother David gets the healing straight from your heart to his.Lord, heal his spirit, his mind, his heart, his body. Make your servant strong again that we can all rejoice in your goodness, forgiveness and mercy.
    We beseech you Lord Jesus and our Virgin Mother Mary to keep David close to you, away from evil and harm, take away all pain and sickness.
    Bless everyone surrounding him, that only those with good intentions visit or treat him. Thank you Lord for all the medical staff who are working hard to find a cure for him.
