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. 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.
