Let everything that originates from me, be bounded by your will, your plans for me. Lord Jesus, I ask for wisdom, knowledge, confidence, abilities and tools to be successful in every project assigned to me, to be successful in every work relationship so I can be an asset to my client and employer and thus protect my employment. Lord Jesus, I ask you to fill me with love, peace, joy, goodness, humilities and all the necessary virtues so I can be an instrument of peace and a blessing to all around me. Lord lift me up from my insecurities and fears that make me negative. Protect me from my own evil and the evils of the outside world. Let me not be a victim of deception, treachery, malice or any evil intention. I ask for same blessings on all my loved ones and ask you to keep them in your care and fulfill their intentions. Lord, protect my little babies and keep them safe. Bless all those who are looking for partners, bless all those who are unemployed and help them with jobs, bless all those who are having challenges on their jobs and safeguard their employment. Lord transform Shyan and fill him with honesty, sincerity, integrity and goodness and unite him with his daughter. Shower your miraculous cure on Sneha, Aquila, Jen, Gowsike and Gladys. Lord Jesus, protect my sister Gladys and nephew Tejas as they are travelling overnight and keep them safe. I place all my intentions before you to grant them to us according to your will in the name of Mama Mary our Mother

    I would like to ask for help in prayer!
    I\'ve been married for 20 years. I have two children. We are Christians 20 years. We lived a happy life. However, now my heart is very comp because my wife is estranged from me. But this was preceded by that does not involve church three years. Damaged and can not process this. This really hurts me because I was afraid of her soul. I\'m afraid that it does not find his way back to the Lord. I asked God to wake him in the state, but so far nothing has happened. I believe that God did not punish him for it is not that big a problem. I do not want God to punish him, but I want to wake up until it\'s too late. And I want to restore our marriage. 20 years is a long time. Very painful to live like that because I like him. I beseech you, pray for him that God will wake up! Either way, but wake up! Do not get lost!

Please stop the violence, the killings, the protests that\'s been happening all over the world today. And please, heal and protect us from all the diseases that spread in many nations. I humbly ask You to please help each and everyone of us, Your children, to pray for one another. Give us strength to battle all evils in this world, together. May we be of help to anyone who needs us, and may we have respect and love to all our brothers, whatever religion they may belong to and whatever differences and beliefs we may have. To all those who are lost, please guide them back to your love and mercy. May your little angels here on earth grow up to be more like You, our Father. May they always seek your word for everything they go through in their daily lives. I believe that if we all pray as one, regardless of our religions and color, our fear and all the dangers we face today will be gone. You save us in our daily battle in our own individual lives. Father, the whole world needs You now. Enlighten us in these days of confusion and uncertainty. Grant that we all may ask from You peace, love, and understanding for one another and an end to all the threat Your world is facing now. In Jesus\' name, amen.

I assured me that I was a great asset to my division and allowed me to keep me job. Now, 17 years later the administration has informed employees they will be conducting back ground checks. I am seeking God\'s favor to keep my job and the checks would not affect me or anyone who was honest with them about their situation. Prayer changes thing\'s and I am standing on God\'s word.

Please help her so she will stop inflicting pain on others and stop destroying marriages, friendships and her own children. Amen.

  9. Lord God Almighty, You are my Lord and God and you know me well. Lord, a took this huge loan from the bank to create work for not just myself but for others. For seven years, I have done all I possibly and humanly can to make this business succeed but try as I may I am constantly faced one problem after another making it impossible for me to reason any more. I have not stopped praying but the more I pray the more problems I face. The resort has been blessed many times and all of us (including staff) pray everyday in vain. Lord, God why have you turned your back on me? Why are you not doing anything about many many woes? My financial problems are slowly drawing my husband and I apart and our vows to you no longer will be valid. Lord please do not turn your back on me; please do not forsake me. Where shall I go? Who shall I turn to?
    My problems have made me desperate and my mind keeps wandering into sin and temptation to commit mortal sin is so great.
    Please pray for me because I am so so desperate and in total despair! Sometimes I feel I may just have to do the unthinkable or else end up in prison for default in my loan payments! Please ask The Lord God Almighty to touch and heal from problems that have engulfed me. Thank you all very much

  14. Dear my beloved sisters and brothers

    Please help me to find my calling in life, to find what is God\'s calling in life for me to do. I have many things I wish to study in university and am taking a gap year. I am not sure what to study yet however, and my dream is to become an international actress at some point in my life.

    Please pray for me and for the people in my past who are obsessed with bullying and trying to jeopardise my career. They may hold images of me which are very private and may even post it online which will jeopardise and hurt my career. Please guide them in prayer so they would stop this and live their own life. I am so desperate that they get rid of the images so I can stop worrying about them.

    Lastly, please pray with me as I try to figure out which name to go by as I changed it around 3 years ago however I am now confused to which to use, my old name and new name. I changed it because I was ashamed of who I was from the extent amount of harrassment and bullying I went through all my schooling years. But I realise that I miss my name and it is actually my baptismal name, so I use it in church anyway.

    Thank you for your time and prayers my brothers and sisters. I pray for your prayers too.

    Amen.
