Praying Hands

Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.

Let Us Pray

  2. I know my place in regards to prayer requests. Very little if any are ever granted. It has always been this way & I am sure will always be in the future. It would be nice for a change that this so called “loving” God will grant me the financial abundance blessings I have been asking for today. It would be nice. Pray it will happen. Thank you.

  18. Please could you and your readers pray that British pro-life MPs (regardless of party affiliation) are elected overwhelmingly at 2016 May 5th local elections, most especially in Northern Ireland? According to the Society For the Protection of the Unborn, it is absolutely vital that pro-life MPs are elected this election, since there has been a concerted effort to make the current abortion laws in Northern Ireland fall in line with the rest of the UK (almost on demand).
    Also in the UK, the abortion lobby are trying to get the current laws changed so that abortion is permitted UP TO BIRTH. Currently the law sets the threshold at 24 weeks. Efforts to set the threshold earlier have been unsuccessful.

  19. Please could you and your readers pray that British pro-life MPs (regardless of party affiliation) are elected overwhelmingly at 2016 May 5th local elections, most especially in Northern Ireland?

    Even if pro-life MPs get elected accidentally (i.e. pro-life issues are not the reason they are chosen by the electorate) that would help to prevent any future motions to relax the abortion laws there being passed. Only God's grace can achieve results like that.
