I need prayers urgently this morning. I woke up this morning for the second time in a week with pain levels above 9. please pray with me that God will ease the pain and give me strength to make it through my part time childcare job this morning. Later this afternoon I need to drive to an interview. Pray for continued physical protection and a covering of prayer preventing the enemy any opportunity to disrupt this day. Even though I woke in pain with tears streaming from my eyes, I smiled because the song "Christ is Enough" has been stuck on replay since before I woke up. Encouraging words for a hard day, I decided to paste them here as well. Thank you and God bless you for the prayer support. VERSE] Christ is my reward And all of my devotion Now there's nothing in this world That could ever satisfy [PRE-CHORUS] Through every trial My soul will sing No turning back I've been set free [CHORUS] Christ is enough for me Christ is enough for me Everything I need is in You Everything I need [VERSE] Christ my all in all The joy of my salvation And this hope will never fail Heaven is our home [PRE-CHORUS] Through every storm My soul will sing Jesus is here To God be the glory [BRIDGE] I have decided to follow Jesus No turning back No turning back The cross before me The world behind me No turning back No turning back
Update: Thank you all for the prayer covering. Praise the LORD, within an hour or so of posting this on the prayer wall and on my facebook page asking for prayer, the pain levels dropped to what is "normal for me" and manageable. I was able to overcome the distraction of the pain and focus on my day, caring for a young boy in the morning and a job interview in the afternoon. I prayed constantly for God to work through me in the interview and to inspire the responses and actions He wanted. Again, PTL, He was faithful. I do not have an answer on the position yet, but the interview went well, as did my morning. I also found a (full time this time) job posted in my field at a company that is a Christian mission focused entity. The position is right in my experience and career field. I pray that if it is God's will, I am considered for that position. So I may use talents and gifts given to me by God to serve HIM and HIS will here on earth. Pray with me (continue praying with me) to continue faithfully walking with my eyes on the Lord in this challenging season of life. Your prayer support, His promise of faithfulness and provision have been my guiding light. Thank you.
God is awesome. He is amazing and has much better in store for us than we ever could imagine on our own. He has been faithful and has given everything needed to me. Right now I am facing another swell in the seas in the storm I navigate through right now. Pray with me that God provides the financial resources I need to satisfy obligations this week. He always has. I have no doubt he will, so while you are praying for His provision, please pray my faith and trust is strengthened. That I can set aside fleshly fear and focus on faith in Him. On a slightly unrelated note, thank you all for praying with me. I have received good news and more good news in the past couple weeks. I have been blessed with a part time job I started two weeks ago. And it looks like I will be starting another part time job within a week or so. I applied for a full time position I found online last week. I sought out letters of recommendation from key people in my professional and personal life. Please pray that if it is God's will, He lines up all the pieces. Full time work would be a huge blessing after being out of work for so long. Your brother in Christ

Hi prayer warriors! I'd appreciate all the prayers we can get for my husband, who is current in the hospital being treated for Sickle Cell Anemie (which he's had his entire life) and Anxiety (which has recently grabbed hold of him). He has been in and out of the hospital since early December, and while we're used to a few visits every year, this is a bit more than our 5 year old daughter has handled before. She's holding up fine, but would like to have her Daddy home with us. I ask that you please pray to our gracious heavenly Father and ask for peace of mind and healing for my husband so that he may be able to come home to us quickly! Thank you all!
Thank you all for the constant prayers. At this time, my husband is still in the hospital (going on week 7 out of the last 10) but is hopeful to be home soon! We are not giving up and are holding on to our faith. We can't wait to have him home and we know that God is getting our family through this difficult time!
Father God, I ask for prayer for direction of where I should go in my life now. There have been some major changes in my life during the past year. Although I have shed many tears and suffered much depression and anxiety, I know that you are working all things for good for me. My husband and I have divorced, my only child has gone to college and I'm living alone for the first time in over 25 years. When my son left in August, I was devastated with being alone. I've lost many friends due to my depression and just not being able to function at times. I even wanted to take my own life. I know now that you brought me to my bottom to force me to increase my faith in you and turn to you more. I am broke, have lost many things, have a very old car that I just pray will keep going every day, and I can't afford the mortgage on my condo. It is currently on the market for short sale. I am on disability but have a dream that I can return to working in the not too distant future. I was offered a loan modification that I can't afford either. I don't have them as often because my faith in you has gotten stronger; but, I was having frequent nightmares for a long time about being homeless with no car and no friends. I have been working hard to pay what debts I can and be a better steward of your money that you have entrusted to me. My emotions have been a roller coaster. I've been praying and praying and praying for answers about where you want me to go and what you want me to do now in my life, especially with my housing and car situation. And, it seems every day I feel a different answer. I don't know if you want me to get a roommate, rent out my place, short sale my place since I'm upside down. I don't know if I should move further West in VA where housing and living costs are lower. I have grown tremendously in the past few months, but do still feel heartbroken that I have lost my closest friends because they just don't understand. I am very tired and also having medical issues too. My house is close to going into foreclosure which makes me wonder if I'm supposed to find a roommate. Because of my mental disabilities, having a roommate is extremely difficult for me. I have tried to find a roommate, sell, rent out my place and I just don't seem to be moving forward. Please, Father, show me and make it clear to me what I need to do. The thought of having to move and lose my home is terrifying. Please Father, help me. I pray that you will provide the resources I need to do your will. I also pray for all people suffering from mental illness. I have been shunned and hurt as a result. I can honestly say that I'm doing my best and doing everything to stay strong and you get the glory for that. I know that you will use my experiences and pains to help others at some point in the future. My dream is to be able to help other people that have been in my shoes and bring awareness of mental health issues to people and provide help for them and help others understand that no matter how hard you try, you can't just "snap out of it." It's a disease, like a cancer. And, when people run from you it only makes things worse. I apologize if this is upsetting to others and for rambling, but after much prayer it's what was on my heart to share.
Hello! I am writing to you because i wonder if it is possible for your church to pray for me? I have a possible infection with systemic fungus. Have been sick for some time and meds have not cured me, only relieved temporarily. I attend a fantastic local church in Stavanger called IMI church. a boy from my church was healed for a very serious illness that the doctors could not help him with when he visited Redding church in the US, therefore i hope for the same to happen to me. I need for God to intervene. If you could allso pray for a frien, Veronica, suffering from CFS ( cronic fatigue syndrome) and hemmorages of the intestinal system i would be glad. She deserve to get healthy again. I hope the power of God can bring good into our lifes. Thank you if you can pray for us. Torleiv Bjoernestad, Stavanger, Norway
Please pray for me. I work with a team of new people and there are 2 that are saying false things about me. They are impacting my work. I am tired of defending myself and really just want to do a good job at work and leave work at work. Please pray that God reveals who they are to management, that I endure and fight the good fight, that I am protected by God, and that I am able to be at peace at my work place. I have a brand new manager coming in and I would like to build a strong relationship with her as well.
A legal matter that has continued for more than 16 yrs. the beuracracy of the system is discouraging and devastating. The ordeal has been overwhelming for me. I am innocent in the whole matter which makes it even harder to weather. I know God is in control and that is my only source of hope. Please pray for me and my family and that God will bring a fair resolution to this awful situation. Thank you.
Please pray for my both my husband and my jobs. My husband is pretty sure that he is going to be let go.His boss told him in his review that he had to make a case for his boss to keep him on at his current salary as they have outsourced the majority of his work. I am also worried about my job because though i got a meet expectations in my annual review in December, he made it clear that I have to do better too in communicating and managing him and his boss. I have been doing my best but I feel as though every little mistake I make my boss is taking note of right now. Please pray that I am able to keep my job and that my husband is either able to keep his job or that he is able to find a new job before he looses his current job. We have so much debt from his having cancer treatments two years ago that we cannot afford to be out of work for any period of time.
Please pray for healing for Ricardo Rivas, Mark and Leonela Woodall, and Lazaro Hernandez, and for lucidity and God's guidance too. Please pray that Nora and Joaquin Hernanadez, and Alcides and Florida Cruz, that God enables them to understand and speak English fluently and for the other blessings they need, Please pray for God's blessings for Kevin Cruz and Moises Escobar. P.S.: Please pray that all His children may be in touch with reality all our lives too. Thank you!
