    1. Lord, I stand with Michelle and understand how hard it is to give up food choices that have been lifetime favorites. I pray the as she looks to you for her help that you pour your strength into her weakness. May she embrace the challenge and discover there are ways that she can still enjoy her food. May she have a thankful heart for what she has, and thankful that her health can be restored simply by enjoying the right foods. May she focus on what she can gain and not what she has lost. Be her joy, O Lord, and bless her with all she has need of. In Jesus' loving name I ask, amen.

    3. Lord, I pray for Jan as she too struggles to manage the needful changes for her health. Give her wisdom and self-control so that it is no longer a 'battle' but rather a chosen way of life. Fill her life with the sweetness of your goodness that her focus is not on what she cannot have but the 'much' she has in you! In Jesus' name, amen.

  2. Please pray for my nephew. He is 18 and estranged from family. Pray for healing of hurts and clarity of mind, and restoration first to God and then to family. Pray for protection from evil.

    1. Lord, thank you for putting us in a family - YOUR family, where we can lean on each other for love, support and encouragement. And we can stand together in prayer ... seeking and believing for your goodness released in every situation. Lord, I pray for this young man, who has his life before him but has already experienced enough pain and heartbreak resulting from wrong choices - his own or others around him. I pray that your love pursue him and melt his heart toward you. Protect him from all evil plotted against him - protect him from those things that would destroy him and pull him farther away from you and his family. Take this family and restore them so dramatically that all who see who give you honor and glory, knowing that it was a miracle from your hand. Bless all in the extended family as they circle their loved one with hands lifted up to you! Place a hedge around this teenager that he will be hemmed in until he surrenders his all to you ! I praise you for what you are going to do .. in Jesus' name , amen.

  3. I'd cherish prayers as my fiancee and I face the ongoing challenge of his unemployment and the stress and financial strain it creates. I want to be a positive and supportive partner, but am often overwhelmed by fear and uncertainty. I ask for prayers for him too, that he remains hopeful and motivated and that circumstances will ultimately be positive and lead to exciting new endeavors. We shift between moments of hope...and then anxiety that leaves us feeling worried about the future. Thank you.

I pray for this dear couple and I pray that as they are already facing trials and difficulties that they will learn early in their relationship that you have put them together to be stronger together ! May they learn to cast all their cares upon you because you will never fail them. You will be their Source and their Strength and their daily Guide. May their love for each other be where all their fears and anxieties melt because together IN you they cannot fall. Bless them in ways they could never think or imagine and may they be a blessing to many ... in Jesus' name, amen.

    2. A verse my husband and I took on for ourselves when we were dating/engaged was in Phillippians 4:6 "Don't worry about anything. Tell God your needs and don't forget to thank Him for His answers." We memorized it and began to pray together. I must say it's probably one of the secrets of a long married life. God bless you for seeking Him.

My siblings are already getting emotional daily. The ones with their mother all their life are the one whom taking it hard.

    1. Dear Lord, the loss of a loved one is hard, life is never the same again and the pain is real, but you have sent the Comforter into our hearts. I pray for this family that is trying to deal with life without the one who was always there for them. I thank you, Father that you have promised we will all be together once again - our loved ones have just gone before us and are but one step away. Help these sisters to find their security in you and find that hope that gives strength for this earthly life. May their memories of their dear mother keep her close and may knowing she is experiencing joy unending bring joy to them even in their grief. Cover them with your love that is sweeter even than a mother's love and may they find rest in your peace. In Jesus' name, I ask... and thank you for being ever present with your children, amen.

    2. Dear grieving family... we know that this year of "firsts" is such a hard one. I remember when my brother-in-law passed away and his family tried to picutre Christmas without him.
      They began a tradition, something that they could focus on to make their time together unique, like maybe each bringing an ornament that reminded them of their dad. Whatever you do, may your time as siblings be a reflection of what you know would bring a smile to your mom and be a comfort to you as you begin new traditions. Praying God's comfort for you.

  5. Please pray for my 4 year old son's upcoming dentist appt. He has to have crowns put on some teeth and some cavities filled so they are going to put him under general anesthesia. It seems so silly of me to worry but I am honestly terrified of having him put asleep. Thank you so much!

    1. Oh Lord, how I understand this mother's concern - taking my daughter to the dentist was one of my very least favorite things to have to do. I am so thankful for the new approach they have to children's dentistry now and also thankful that this dear little one will not have any traumatic memories. My granddaughters had to have work done under anesthesia and I prayed with an anxious heart - they did so well! I pray for Sara that you will cover her with your peace - may she know that her child will be in your hands and that no harm will come to him. May she hear you whisper that there is nothing silly about being anxious over her little son, that you also hover with great concern over every one of your children. Give the dentist a caring, compassionate approach with skill and wisdom to do the work that needs doing. May the day end in joy and relief and praise to you for carrying them through the whole experience on angels wings! Hold them close and melt all fear and anxiety... in Jesus' name I ask, knowing you have already heard and answered. amen.

  14. November of 2014 I began asking you to pray for me. Last December (2015) I experienced my own Christmas miracle as my husband once again turned his heart to me. In February of 2016 he admitted that he needed help and this past summer he finally found some relief for his chronic pain. Life is not perfect. The events of the past 2 years have left us in a financially precarious situation and his pain is not completely resolved (and may never be), but he and I are a unit once again and for this I am truly, truly grateful. Knowing that you were praying for me gave me great comfort as I struggled to hold our family together. I am thankful to you for your prayers and to God for leading me through the past years of pain. I ask that you continue to pray for my family and wish you all the blessings of the Christmas season.

  27. I pray for God divine intervention for a career path. I am currently on maternity leave. I am set to return to teaching in the fall. I love my students and my job. But I know I'll miss my time with my kids. I am in discussion with my friend about starting a daycare or preschool. It would be a dream and a fun experience that I can take my kids too. But it feels risky and scary too. It's not the same amount of money. It doesn't have retirement security. I would be leaving a job I loved. I pray God gives me some clear answers that are immediate. And that I know it is clearly Gods direction. Bless me.

    1. O Lord, how we need your wisdom to make the right choices in our life. I pray for this mother who is facing an important decision that will impact her life, as well as the life of her family, in huge ways. Help her to trust that you know and have planned the best path for her ... help her to trust you enough that she will follow even as you light her way step by step. May faith arise in her heart that you are able to provide for all her future needs - that you are not limited in resources. Even as she has asked for divine wisdom, you have promised to give it. And as she makes decisions, grant her the confirmation she needs by causing the details to fall into place beyond her expectations. Thank you, that the desire of this mother's heart is to follow you. Bless her and her family and keep them safe in your loving care. In Jesus' name, amen.

  32. I would ask for prayer for the United States and our new President. I have prayed for our nation to be stirred up and repent and come back to Him for a long time but what is happening now is very scary. It seems that a cauldron of hatred and vileness has been unleashed and we are being swept along by it and it is very much out of our control. I know this is a heart issue and a long-time rebellion issue, esp among women and now our young people , who despise being told what to do by anyone. We still are a selfish and proud and self-worshipping people and we need God so desperately.....your post this morning spoke of waiting on God and that his timing is perfect and that He still loves us, I would ask for prayer to help me remember that.

I thank you for those, like JKK who ask people to stand with her in prayer for her nation. May you grant repentance to sweep the land and change hearts, that love would melt hatred and anger and fear. I pray for the new leader, President Trump - may he be your 'man' through whom you bring the right kind of changes. Give him wisdom and grace and protection. You have said "when my people pray and seek my face..." Lord, we seek you on behalf of our nations, the United States and Canada - preserve us, O God - may we continue to live in peace. May we never take our blessings for granted, but may we,your people rise up and be counted - may we be seen and heard. Starting each in our own corner, may we reflect your Light in our very dark world. I pray that we will stand, not in our weakness but in your strength, to uphold the goodness and the glory of your Kingdom that is forever and ever!! amen.

I pray for this office-partner that he would change his attitude - that he would be moved to see how he is affecting his partner. I pray for Joanie that you would give her an understanding heart to see what is behind the hurtful words/actions of this man - perhaps a hurt/sorrow/bitterness of his own. A soft answer turns away wrath - may she have wisdom in knowing how to respond to him. If there is something she can do that will change the atmosphere of their office, may she see clearly what it is. You can also give her a new partner if that is the answer. You know all the ins and outs of this situation and I know that you have the perfect solution. I thank you for your able willingness to change the stress into blessings ... May good will rule in that workplace. May all malice and ill will be left at the door - and only peace and kindness step over the thresh hold.

They haven't been taken to church on a regular basis their whole lives. As they get older, my husband and I can see more and more the toil that this situation has on the children.

Often when we live with them it is hard to be the example we want to be - the visual reflection of your character so that they will be drawn to you. Lord, we know time is short and we ask that by your Holy Spirit you convict and draw and cause them to be confronted by their need, and enticed to seek you for their answers recognizing that there are none by any other Name. Give us the wisdom and patience and love that we need to be in the right place at the right time with the right words in our mouths with our hands extended. May we also know when we need to act and not speak. Help us Lord to find our own needs fulfilled in you that we will not accept the discouragement of the enemy.

I love his faith focus, that this is his year for healing! Grant that it be so, Lord, heal him from head to toe, so completely that the doctors will be astonished! I pray too for their desire to buy a home, and with moving not their choosing at this time, perhaps it is your nudge for them to know that their own home is in your timing! All things are good from your hand, and I pray that joy will be this couple's cup ! and all praise will go to you, and only you ! You are the God of miracles and Almighty is your name ! In Jesus' precious name, amen.

  55. Please pray for my future. I meet with my principal on Monday to discuss my return from maternity leave. I am going to request part time work. I don't know if this is what I should be doing? Or if I should stay home with my kids? I feel like I want to hold on to a career I think I enjoy. But at the same time I don't want to miss time with my kids. We don't have childcare worked out yet. A family member may be able to watch them but nothing is confirmed at all. I ask a God to show me. And soon. My heart is anxious about making the right choice for my family. Please Lord.

    1. Father, I pray for this mother struggling to make the right choices for her family -- the choice that you would have her make. I pray that you give her wisdom and that you impress upon her heart the 'right' choice. I pray that you orchestrate the details in such a way that your will for this mother unfold so smoothly that she has only peace in her heart and mind, and no anxiety or doubt about the decisions she makes. I know your heart is toward the children that they will be raised in a secure, loving environment where learning to know you is built into their daily lives. Bless this home to be a godly home where you are Lord...and that it would be an example to others. Help this mother to navigate around a society that demands so much of us, where expectations are high. Give her a clarity of vision to see her way clearly and courage, knowing that you will provide whatever financial needs they have. In Jesus' name, in whom we trust ...amen.

    2. Dear Anonymous, I don't know how much finances play into your decision making but I pray that you can work out a part time situation or feel at peace about staying home for this season in your life. I know that it feels like a long time until your kids are grown, but the time will go so fast and you will have another season to go back to your career. This is what I told my daughter-in-law who is now at home raising her children. I'm speaking from experience of a mom and grandmother, who at about the age of 40 realized that I still had lots of life to go after my kids were grown. =) Sending a big hug and may God give you peace and joy.

    3. Thank you again for your prayers. I got a call from our previous daycare saying they'd have a spot for both kids. It would be the same cost as my wage for a few months. The whole thing makes me sad to leave them with strangers. I don't know what to do. I feel like if I leave my dream art job I'll never get it back. I feel like if I don't do the right things for my kids I will never get it back. I don't have anyone to help me make this decision except me right now. I pray God helps me to decide. I feel so sad.

    4. Dear Anonymous... I believe God has given you your answer - the fact that you are feeling sad and discouraged even though your job is open, and the day care offering spots, shows that you are considering something that will not fulfill you or be what YOU think it will be. Only in taking the BEST way, the one God chooses for you, will you experience all and more than you could hope or wish for! You get only one chance to be mom to your kids ... Your dream art job can be returned to, if that is what God's plan for you is, He will 'hold' that job for you until your kids are older ... and you will NEVER regret having given your kids the best of yourself and your time. There is no higher calling, none that gives the rewards of good mothering!

      "Dear Lord, I pray that you will give this mother a peace and assurance that you will honor her decision to be first of all a mother to the precious children you have given her. As she trusts in you and walks step by step as you lead her ... may she know that your plan for her will never leave her deprived of opportunity. May she again find the joy that you desire her to have. Bless this family and their home... in Jesus' name, amen."

  56. Please pray for the application we put in for getting a reliable transportation to take us around for special purposes. Pray for the right reasonable price working out with the buyers and the right directions to go to. My daughter is trying her best in hunting for vehicles lately. After getting a reliable work she is in good situation to pay for her transportation. God answered our prayers through Mennonite Prayer Warriors for a good paying job for my daughter, Melissa. She is happy where is she and her staff are really nice to work with; and her supervisor is a Christian. Thanks for all your prayers.

Thank you for this family, may you guide their steps and prosper their way ! In Jesus' name, amen.

  57. Just about a year ago I asked for prayer for my two daughters, one was embarking on IVF treatment and the other was trying to buy a house - within a short space of time, both prayers were answered and I now have a beautiful new granddaughter and my other daughter has found a new home for her family. I am once again asking for your prayer support. My daughter is the primary breadwinner and having found their new home, the company she had worked for over the past 10 years was sold and the office she worked from closed down with the majority of the staff laid off. She has worked very hard at getting interviews and has two this Friday and another on Monday. She could do all of these jobs but one of these sounds ideal - please pray for her that she can show herself at her best during the interview and that the right job will be made available to her. Thank you for your prayer support.

    1. We rejoice with praise for you, our Father who hears and answers our prayers, because you love to work on behalf of your children! Thank you for blessing this dear family. I pray today for this daughter who has lost her job and needs to replace it so she can provide for her family. You already know which job YOU have chosen for her in your wisdom and love. I pray that you would work out the details that will allow everything to fall into place for the best job to be offered to this daughter/mother. Give her a peaceful heart and a clarity of mind that she will present in a way that will impress those who are conducting the interview. We place our trust in you, knowing that we need not fear that you will not provide... In Jesus' wondrous name of abundance, amen.

    1. Father, having very recently lost my own mother, I understand the grief of this family. We are never ready to lose our mother. I pray for the comfort of your Holy Spirit to envelope them in their grief and may the memories of their mother's love warm their hearts. I pray for protection as they journey back home and that the family reunion with be one that binds their hearts together with love as they wrap their arms around each other to remember and to share their common grief. Even in their own heartache may they rejoice in knowing their Mom is with the Lord, delighting in all heaven has to offer. May their grief not be without the hope of knowing they will see her again .... This life is but a journey, eternity with you is the destination we all reach for. Bless this family in a special way this difficult week-end and may they know you were in every detail. O Lord, you feel their pain with them, weep with them and yet .. are the joy-giver. In Jesus' name I ask that you cover this family with your love and peace ... amen.

  59. Please pray for God's intervention of the sick, immoral and evil men and women in the process of taking over the United States and may he have mercy on the rest the the world's people and government as well. It has gotten to the point where I honestly have little hope in the direction that things are going in. I know that with God's help, anything can be done. We should be helping each other instead of helping ourselves. Love of money and power with no care for the sick, poor, needy is the problem. I'm asking you to pray that He shines his light in men's hearts and uses his power and glory to show what's really important on this earth, while we are here, being his stewards. Thank you.

    1. Oh Lord, this earth is not our home, we are just passing through. The harvest is plentiful, the laborers few - but may your people fulfill the work of your Kingdom - reaching the lost with the salvation gospel and loving those around us. Open our eyes to see the need around us, even as we have in our hands the resources to make a difference. It is so disturbing to watch the world around us crumbling into darkness, but we have the Light that will dispel the darkness. Help us to not get discouraged but rather to rise up with strength and power and stand against the work of the enemy. May we be courageous and faithful to the end! Come soon, Lord Jesus, we pray, amen.

  60. Please pray for my nephew, Seth, very young, smart and intelligent, alcohol got controlled of him, lost his job because of drinking problem, missing work, and he blamed losing both of his closed grandmothers, on his dad's side, and mom's side. We were all surprised and found out he was just walking the streets in small town, didn't care to live, in and out of jail, DUI's, it just torn us apart, and heartbroken over my nephew. Please pray for Seth. I know the Lord will worked out the problems he's going through; Pray for his parents, sisters they all tried to correct his alcohol problem; they seemed gave up on him. We still care for our nephew, very young age.

    1. Lord, I pray for Seth, who has been overcome by the influence of the enemy. His life is on a downward spiral but you have not forgotten him and you have been attentive to the prayers of his loving family. Grant them the strength not to give up hope ! I pray Lord that you open Seth's eyes to see ... stir in his heart the desire to live a life worthy of who you created him to be. Bring the right people across his path who will help him and provide the right intervention. Thank you for Seth, for your love for him and your plan and purpose for his life. Draw him with your love, your mercy and may he find his way home. In Jesus' name we plead, amen.

  61. I want to ask for your prayers. Thank God for all the blessings He is giving me throughout the work days and weekends without no break at all for a year plus. I am thankful that we got someone to do the weekend shifts, so I can be able to spend more time with my family, husband, grand children that I've been neglecting because of work. Please pray, for more rest for my body, and catch up on my chores at home; its been hard doing the extra hours. Thank You for praying.

    1. Lord, I thank you that you have provided for this family but it has been hard and taxing on the body of this wife/mother/grandmother. Thank you for providing staff that will work the week-ends so she can spend time with her loved ones. I pray that her body will have time to rest and be restored ... that her time and focus can shift to family and being who they need her to be. Bless this family with your love and care, in Jesus' name , amen.
