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. So here it goes, I have a friend Faith Marie, who is ridden by anxiety. She has not made the best life choices (unrest due to mortal sin), and does not know of God’s love for her. Yet she is requesting prayers (which mean she has a shred of hope)! Specifically, could you pray or ask for your prayers for her, to know God’s love, mercy and not to be afraid. To understand His protection of her as a child of God and for a special intention that she would experience His protection, that would be great! Thanks for your witness and your example of faithfulness!

  4. Lord Jesus, I seek your wisdom, guidance, direction and protection to walk on the path you have chosen for me. Block my mind, heart, needs, desires, attachments and feelings such that they are aligned with your will, your plans for me. Let no thoughts,word or actions that originates from me be outside your plans for me. Bless all my loved ones wherever they may be and fulfill their intentions. Let peace and happiness reign upon their lives. Lord Jesus, I seek wisdom, knowledge, abilities, confidence and tools to do well in my job and be successful in my assignments so that I can be an asset to my employer and client and thus protect my employer. Lord bless all those who are in need of a job and strengthen their faith in your powers and bless all those who are working hard to protect their employment. Bless all those who I am working with and lift us out of every evil and negative sentiments. Thank you Jesus for all your blessings

  15. I was recently left destitute and depressed and made a dumb decision last year. I am on probation and needing to move to Gilbert, AZ in order to get my son back from his father who kicked me while I was down. Please pray that God softens the Judges’ heart and my probation officer puts a good word for me when asked by the judge so I am granted permission. I only had my son when I left his father and he took him away from me since he had a lawyer and I couldn’t afford one. I have never gotten in trouble before. I need my son and he needs me. Please pray that my son’s dad stops conditioning my son against me and I am able to get my son. Please pray that God gives me favor and opens doors for me to get me back to AZ and uses my lawyer so I can leave El Paso, TX and be with my son. Phil 4:13 Psalm 23:5-6 Isa 54:17

Now the mother is doing everything possible to separate the two and forcing her daughter to divorce my son. Due to all the turmoil, my son got into deep depression and drug. He is now on heavy medications to get out of drug but depressed. I want to beg everyone to please pray for my son\'s recovery and their marriage settled. That he gets strong and make the right decisions in life and strong enough to never hold on to drugs and cigarettes. That he changes into a new person full of love, understanding and happiness and takes life seriously.
