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 PJL, who has depression, that she may find strength and comfort and find helpful treatments

    Dana, 4/17/2014
  2. I have a grandson with severe autism. It breaks my heart to pieces every time
    I see him or even think of him. I don\'t question the purpose of GOD why he was
    Born that way. But I believe HE has the power to do something about it. JESUS
    Said that whenever there is two or more who pray for his Mercy, then, there is more power in prayer. I have been prayin for Neo, my grandson, for GOD to make
    him better. But I always pray alone. Please pray with me for Neo\'s intention.
    may GOD bless you in JESUS name with your own intention.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen!!!
