  1. Please pray for my daughter Molly who is having a call back after her first mammogram. With my husband having lymphoma, this is especially troubling.

    1. Oh Father, how well you understand the torment fear brings to our hearts and mind. Yet, through all other noise, we hear your soft words, 'fear not'. You love cast out fear, your presence brings peace. I pray for this family and especially Molly who has received a troubling call. I pray, Lord, that she will so sense your comforting arms around her that even when she steps into that doctor's office she will be at peace. I pray that this call back is simply precaution and no need for worry will arise. I pray for healing where healing is needed. Bless this family with your goodness and may all their fears melt in your love. May they give thanks and praise to you for what you will do ... for indeed you are good and in you your children trust. In Jesus' healing name I pray, amen.

  2. Thankyou for posting this . I was just looking for fluffy buns and i am making them as we speak, fingers crossed. Upon reading your prayer request i am truly grateful if you would help me grieve. my lovely and only aunt died suddenly while i was away in BC. I am still so hardened by it that i cannot but her picture up. We were very close and cannot accept her death it seems. Please if you have advice i would love to hear the prayers the lord have to adjust to this new life without her. Such a good and wonderful lady.

    1. Oh Lord, you wept when your friend died, and you understand the grief we feel when we lose loved ones. I pray for this dear one that has so suddenly lost a precious aunt who she was so close to. She feels the loss deeply but you are the great Comforter. I ask that you take her grieving emotions and infuse them with hope -- hope knowing that she will see her aunt again and then there will be no more good-byes. May her memories of her aunt warm her heart - may she know her aunt is not 'gone' only 'away' - and that temporarily. Fill those empty places in her life with meaning and satisfying purposes. May the life her aunt lived, the example she modeled be the footsteps her niece follows in. May her aunt's influence now give her strength to lean on. And may your voice, dear Lord, whisper peace and comfort to her heart and mind. May your arms envelope her in your love. In Jesus' name, amen.

  3. Father, I give my trust to you always. But, at times I have such anxious feelings. My prayer request is that the right people come through our home which we are selling and they fall in love with it as we did/do and want to buy it. I pray everything goes smooth and all falls into place all into the right timing. Thank you Lord for every gift/blessing/and my family. I thank you for keeping us well, free from harm, and always showing us the right path. Thank you for being my friend!!

    1. Oh Father, I will never forget when Darlene's prayer so very closely paralleled mine and you answered beyond every detail. I know you have already answered Darlene's need and desire and I pray that you will fill her heart with peaceful expectation as she waits for the 'answer' to be fulfilled. Thank you for the blessings you have bestowed upon this thankful family and may you continue to be their Source in all things. May their next home be one that you have already blessed and prepared to be a blessing to Darlene, her family and all who enter therein. Thank you, Lord, that in everything we need but to look to you and all our anxiety melts in your faithful care over us. In Jesus' all-satisfying name I pray, amen!

  4. Today I have to go for some medical tests and I think that I am seriously ill. Though I would like to request prayer that I am okay, I would request that you pray that I will be a strong person regardless of my results. I am not a brave person and right now I really need to feel God's presence and His peace. Thank you so much.

May she know that you will never leave her or forsake her and you already have her 'best' in your plans. I pray for healing - either miraculous or through the doctor's care. May this work out for your glory and your praise. Bless Janina body, soul and spirit, in Jesus' name I ask, amen.

  5. I had an audit at my office yesterday, and the auditor found a few things that are my fault. I'm panicking as this is cause for termination, suspension, fines, etc. It was an innocent mistake but I'm worried sick and anxious.

    1. Father, you are the defender of your children, you are their 'rear guard'. Yes, we must take responsibility for our own actions and choices but mistakes can happen - things that we may be faulted with but we are not guilty by intent. Please give this one favour and understanding with her superiors, may they recognize that it was an unintentional mistake. May it be easily corrected and no harm come of it. Protect her job and her reputation, and may no financial burden be laid upon her. Solve this in a gentle way, Lord, and may the end result be thankfulness in this employee's heart ! In Jesus' all-loving name , amen.

  6. My husband was laid off from his job yesterday, and is really devastated and scared. He has always worked hard, has a great reputation, but is afraid he won't find a job. We can't live off one income. Please pray for a good job, good work environment and guidance for him towards that. Thank you!

    1. Oh Father, you know how we need to feel secure and you understand how easy it is to look down 'at the water' instead of up into your face. Sometimes we 'lose' what we have because you have something better for us. I pray for this husband that you will give him your peace and may he trust knowing that you will provide a new job position for him. Guide him in his search - better still, bring the new job to him in a way that will let him know only you could have orchestrated it. Bless this family with your abundance and may they know they need never fear, because you have them in your hand. We thank you for your answer, in Jesus' name, amen.

  8. I don't want to seem selfish but I would like a larger house that we can afford & that we can keep up. We are retired & this house is getting to be too much for us to handle. We are cramped in & to clean it is getting to be too much. We are on top of ourselves. Again, I know there are people that are in much more need of prayer than us, but it sure would be nice to be able not to have to work so much on this house in our golden years. Thank you, & God Bless you for any prayers.

    1. Awww... Lord, you so understand the desires of our heart and are so willing to give us abundantly more than we could think to ask. I pray for this dear couple who are in their retirement years and need a home that will comfortably meet their needs. You know exactly the right home, your eye is already on it, and I ask that you orchestrate the details that will connect that perfect home with this couple! A home that will 'give' and not 'demand'. I pray a special blessing upon them, joy unspeakable, and sweet contentment and peace ... delighting in your good gifts to them. May their new home be one that not only blesses them but also blesses all who enter. Fill this couple's hearts with thanksgiving because you are good! thank you ! in Jesus' name amen.

  9. I was happy to see this request a prayer. Though completely unhappy with the situation. A dear friend of mine who is a living angel has been in hospital for several weeks now. She has had one incredibly difficult life but never lost her faith. I can't go on with all the reasons she is wonderful due to the list being so long but she is the most pure person I've ever known. She is giving and caring and ever so generous. I love her so much. I found out she has cancerous brain tumours and they can't do anything. I can't lose her. I've lost so many this year. 2017 has been awful. It would take a while to go through it all but right now I need a miracle. I was shocked by myself for I lost emotional control and started screaming and begging God not to take her from us. Not yet! Please pray for a miracle. I need one right now. Thank you so much and God bless!

Life and death are in your hand and I pray, Lord, that this friend may live to give you glory. I pray too for Shannon that she is comforted by your love and may she know that your ways, while not always our ways are always for good. She already grieves the loss of many, may this year turn for her thanksgiving and not more grief. May you hear and answer her cry for a miracle for her dear friend. Thank you in Jesus' name, amen.

  11. Please pray for me, I have experienced with a harassment telephone calls tonight from a unknown caller calling me names, and that I am not a good telephone operator, etc. She is going to put in a complaint against me. But, I tried helping her out she won't listened to me. Please pray for me that I will not be written up for this.

    1. Father, life can often be overwhelming and we can be our own worst enemy. I pray for this discouraged soul who is feeling like she is failing in every way and that everyone is against her. I pray that you would encourage her soul, may she realize that you are waiting to be her strength and her guiding Light through the days that seem so dark. May she know that you have a good plan for her and that your desire for her is the joy of a fulfilling life. Bring those alongside her who would encourage her and give her the break or relief she needs to be able to deal with what is on her plate. Take the anger from her heart and replace it with your love and your peace that passes understanding. Surround her with your goodness and may she respond with thanksgiving for all you have given her. Fill her 'empty cup' overflowing with what she needs and may the cry of her heart be answered in you. In Jesus' all-sufficient name, amen.

I pray for this caregiver that you would bless her with an abundance of compassion and empathy and the wisdom she needs to respond according to the need of her client.

    6. PRAISE REPORT: I am thanking you again sisters (Mennonite girls) for praying for my father, Edward. After asking for prayers, and after dad was hospitalized for not swallowing at all for six days, he got out of being asleep for days without eating; the IV's were used and yesterday he opened his eyes, and started swallowing his food. We were all amazed. Doctors gathered all the immediate family and he back on alertness. Praised God! We were lifted again. Keep up the prayers for dad for us.

  15. Greetings - I could just use a little extra selfish prayer for myself. For some reason, my chemistry must be "off" - I am a total nervous wreak about everything, worrying needlessly until I'm losing focus and not enjoying life. Life has been overwhelming with college kids, bills, money woes, etc. Nothing is for lack of trying - we are all working hard, but us old parents are worn out. Please pray to bring me/us back to "normal" - my focus where I didn't sweat the small stuff like I am now for some reason. That...and severe empty nest syndrome even though work is keeping me very busy. That longing for the kids to be little again, it almost makes you ache - actually, it does. Please help me focus on all the great things ahead, instead of wishing the past would come back - it is kind of messing up my focus! LOL I appreciate all you Ladies do so much. Thank you.

    1. Lord, it is always a privilege to come alongside someone who needs a shoulder to lean on. I bring this 'worrier' before your throne of grace and I know you are already aware of the things that are overwhelming to her. I pray, Father, that you impress upon her heart that it is really not needful that BOTH of you worry about things .. and seeing you have already taken care of the needs she is anxious about, may she heave a sigh of relief and rest in your peace. May the letting go of the things you have promised to provide result in the joy of living returning to her heart and mind! May she fix her focus on YOU and find that all other things then come into focus. May she see the best is yet to come. It is something I have to keep reminding myself of, now that my sweet little grandgirls are grown up! My heart warms to this dear lady - I know if I met her, I would love her .. and I know you delight in her! Bless her from head to toe as only you can, in Jesus' precious name, amen.

    2. Dear Anonymous, I want you to know that you are not alone in your feelings as you face this new stage in your life because I can remember how, for the first time in my life, I did not like the season I was in. As the kids grew, there was always something about the stage I was in that I loved but when they started leaving, it felt so final and it was hard. I want to encourage you with the reality that it is only a stepping stone to another season that is beautiful in it's own way. I would not want to go back now and love being where I'm at now. It is easy to forget how it felt, but I know God answered my prayers in making this season beautiful, meaningful and rewarding. May God bless you!

  21. I hope you might consider praying for my son Jamie. He is very stressed and overwhelmed right now. His rent on his apartment is going up almost $400 Oct.1. He will be unable to afford that. He has been trying to look for another apartment but no luck. Rents have skyrocketed here. Also he thinks he won't have a job much longer. Most of the employees have already quit. He doesn't get paid for all hours he works. Needless to say very stressful. We have offered to have him move back home. But I don't think he wants to. He is 42 and lives alone. He is a good man. I wish he didn't have to struggle so.
    Thank you so much.

Sometimes you allow us to be forced out of where we are, not for our hurt but because you have something better planned for us. I pray, Father, that you not only provide a home Jamie can afford but also a good job that will provide for all his financial needs, May it be a job that will be one that he will enjoy - a job that becomes more than just a 'job'. Provide for him a social network that will draw him in to a circle of support and fulfilling relationships. Fill him up, Lord with your goodness - financially, emotionally and also spiritually! May this situation be but the catalyst to move him to the abundant good you desire to bless him with. And thank you for his loving parents ... bless this family ... in Jesus' name, amen.

  23. I would be so grateful if you could you please lift my husband, Cisco, in prayer. He has had a really hard year, medically speaking. We haven't had much hope or good news for quite a while. My husband has more faith than anyone I've ever known but even he is feeling a little weary and down-trodden right now. This Thursday, we'll receive biopsy results that will hopefully, finally come back clean. Then again on Friday, we'll receive more biopsy results and are really hoping that those tests will find him completely healed, as well. I'm trying so hard to be calm and gentle and patient but I just know how much of our future and my husband's life depend on those results. I'm so grateful for your heart-felt ministry.

  25. My husband I recently bought a house. We feel very blessed to have such wonderful jobs and the money to be able to afford such a wonderful house. The problem is we REALLY need to sell our condo so that we aren't making mortgage payments on 2 places for much longer.

Also I ask that their condo would sell so that they are freed financially and can put the worry about making ends meet behind them and focus on the purposes you have for them. Bless them, O Lord, abundantly and beyond and make them a blessing to all who come into their lives. Thank you for this couple that have put you first in their hearts. In Jesus' name, amen.

  26. I would like to ask for prayers for my brother who has not been well and has had two biopsies of a mass that was found in his esophagus. The first biopsy showed inflammation and he had to have a second biopsy last Friday to gather more tissue. Our entire family and friends are praying that it is only inflammation and not a malignant mass. Please pray for my brother Paul.
    Thank you, Faye

    1. Father you understand our fears and anxious thoughts, especially when we are given reason but your gentle voice assures us, "Fear not!" I pray for Paul who has health issues and is waiting for the results of the second biopsy. I stand with this family in prayer for his healing. May the mass simply be an infection that is easily treated. May the report be one that brings relief to the hearts and minds of Paul and his family and friends and gives cause for there to be an outpouring of thanksgiving and praise to you! You healed those who came to you when you walked this earth, and you are still the same - with the same power to heal. May Paul live in health and strength and walk in the purposes you have planned for him. We thank you , in Jesus' name, amen.

She is one of those that it doesn't come easy, she is dedicated, and it gets frustrating for her.

He has ADD and dyslexia, and as we are getting older it is getting worse. He is negative and critical, so unlike the man I married. I wish he had some peace and calmness. I know part of this is his ADD, but he has to be strong deal with it instead of using it as a crutch. Please help him realize how much I and our family love him, however we cannot live in an atmosphere of negativity. Please help him make his good qualities triumph over bad.

You understand the limitations and difficulty our frail bodies can hinder us with, but you can override those weaknesses - you have promised that your strength is strongest in our weakness ! I pray for Lisa's husband that you would encourage him to look to the things that are good, the things he can do, and to realize that your perfect will for him, in him and through him is not hindered at all by the weakness he stumbles against. Help him to overcome, to see and accept the help that is offered him by his loving family and may he find his refuge in you and may your love and peace fill him with contentment. Bless this couple and their family for your praise and glory, in Jesus' name, amen.

  30. Prayer request ...
    My brother, in his 50's, was diagnosed with kidney cancer this week. It is extremely difficult to be thankful for this!! He is an unbeliever and is struggling in his very unhappy marriage. His wife has a gambling problem and he is the sole bread winner. All around, a very messy, negative environment, and now this!! I believe in prayer, and would request additional support for him. Thank you!! Hilda

  32. I still have faith in God for a prayer for my son, Brian, whom is still having an affair with another lady; his kids are with the mother trying to do her best being with the kids all alone. But, it seems like Brian is wanting to be with this lady he's with now. I'm still praying he will go back to his wife, and his children. There is family issues on the wife's side of the family that don't want him in the house. They all live together with the wife's parents due to no house of their own. That's why my son moved out and somewhere along the line he had found this lady to be his girlfriend and living with her. I really don't know what happened with the family issues. I just want them to go back together. I really don't want to meet this lady my son's going around with; I did not accept her into my family. What she did is wrong (adultery) I'm still upset all about this. Please continue to pray for my son Brian.

I pray that his own plans and desires would fail to satisfy him, I pray that love for his wife and children would stir in his heart. May the enemy's influence be hindered and his eyes opened to see the destruction he is allowing in his own life and the hurt and pain he is causing for his wife and children and his praying mother. You know the family issues and you know the answers. I pray for repentance for Brain, for a sorrow for his sin to overwhelm him and may his heart turn back to you. I pray for your mercy for this family, for your love to rule in their lives and for your healing and grace to restore what has been so sadly broken. Oh Father, only you can change what seems hopeless and we trust you to bring a miracle into this situation ... thank you, Lord, for your mercy ... in Jesus' name, amen.

    3. Dear Sisters Julie and Anneliese: Today I even told my son why he is doing the wrong thing by leaving his wife/children for another lady. He told me not to judge him, and that I never loved him and why I go to church that I am not a believer at all. He said, to leave him along and he will not talk to me anymore. It hurts me so bad and I'm still cannot get over this. He is not Brian that I used to know as my son. The devil is really working on him. Please pray for him to changed his attitude and I am still his mom. I am very hurting inside. But I still have faith to keep praising my Lord. Thanks for praying sisters.

    4. Oh Father, I pray that you comfort this mother whose heart is broken ... May she find a safe refuge in you. You know Brian, and while the enemy and his own sin has a hold on his life, your power is so much greater. I pray that you cause circumstances or whatever it will take to bring Brian to a place of sorrowful repentance, a place where he recognizes that what he tossed aside - the love of his mother, his wife and children - was what had the greatest value, and what he thought he gained is but gold dust that the wind blows away. Lord, I ask that you will be glorified in Brian's life and that his family will be re-united. What is impossible to man , is possible with you ! You are the God who restores what the canker-worm has eaten, you have mercy where sin has ravished, you take hearts of stone and give hearts of flesh. We lift our hands to you, and wait for what you have already given ... In Jesus' loving name, amen.

  34. From Charity Mencia
    Please send up all the prayers you can sweet ladies. Your prayers helped me a year ago when I faced a broken heart and a difficult time in my marriage. The lord renewed our faith and saved our commitment to him. A year later and Hurricane Harvey has certainly brought a new trial for us. This time it is a mass layoff in my company. I am in line for two jobs in Dallas but have not gotten either company to confirm an in person interview. My family needs this big move and big break after losing our home and possessions. Help sisters, help. Help me to pray that there is confirmation from both companies any day now and that the Lord brings comfort to our home and hearts again through his saving grace by the holy spirit.

Lord, I pray that this trial will do naught but strengthen what you have done in their lives in the past year. I pray that their trust in you will stay strong and that their love for each other will will not falter. You know their needs ... you know their financial situation. You know all about the layoffs and your eye is also on the two opportunities in Dallas. Lord, you know which job is right for Charity .. whether it is one of the two she is considered for or another one that you have not yet brought before her. I pray that as Charity and her family wait for your answer - they would know your assurance that all will be well, and that peace would rule in their hearts and home ! Your promises are true, O Lord, and your goodness is extended to your children daily. Bless this family with provisions beyond their hope or expectations and may all praise and glory be yours !

I pray too that their children will be cared for by someone who is trustworthy and can be trusted to provide what they need. Only you, Lord, see and know all the needs in this family - and I know that you love them and desire the best for them. Thank you, Lord, .. amen.

  39. Please pray for me for direction. My husband is getting more and more independent and we seem to be at the point of not coming to a workable solution after a separation of 2 years. Kind of a together but separate that is not working. He is also older and seems to getting a little emotionally confused. We’ve been married 28 years. I am mostly alone and have been trying to get an answer or direction for my life and hoping my own family would reach out to me and they haven’t.
    It’s a difficult situation all around and at 50 I find myself trying not to panic and to trust God’s plan to unfold.
    I’ve been waiting and no answer for long time. My daughter and her husband are moving and they have invited me to eventually be near them but I dont know if that’s wise. Please just pray for hope, direction and unmistakable answers to be clear soon for all of us in our family.

    1. Father, your eye is on this dear sister that is in intensive care. I don't know what is wrong but you do, and healing is in your hand. I pray that you provide all that is needed, wisdom for the doctors, gentle care from the nurses, loved ones watching over her and peace, comfort, strength flowing from your Spirit. Hold your hand over her bed and may your Presence be felt around her. Comfort the family and may their trust in your goodness be unshakable. We thank you for your goodness toward us, in Jesus' name, amen.

  50. Please pray for our 19 year old daughter. We discovered she has been having a relationship with a much, much older man. They have discussed moving in together. We are afraid she may not finish college. She has always been so responsible in the past. We are shocked and feel our hearts are breaking.

    1. Oh Lord, you see the heartbreak of these parents over concern for their daughter. You know the work/temptation of the enemy in this situation/relationship and I pray that you break it. Open the eyes of this young girl that she can see the truth, that she can see this man for what he is, that she will feel the anguish of her parents. Soften her heart, Lord, that she can see she is turning her back on all the 'good' you have planned for her. Bring the right people across her path those voice of warning and reason she will hear. Give wisdom to these parents and assure them that your love for their daughter is even greater than their's. Turn this situation around for your praise and glory, Lord... We trust in you - there is no one else! May your hand of protection over this family turn this Christmas season into one of celebration and joy and not despair and pain. We praise your holy name, Jesus, amen.

  51. Please pray for my dear little 5-year-old daughter who is struggling with a lot of serious anxiety since starting kindergarten 3 months ago. It affects her physically, and is causing a lot of difficulties. Please also pray for my 7-year-old son who is struggling with being very quick-tempered. (I think that some of it is a result of seeing what went on in the abusive marriage that I was in until God, in His grace, led me to safety 3 years ago). My son has not been able to understand all that happened. Please pray for me as well, to have wisdom in how to help my children, and that God's grace and love would cover them. I am so thankful that I had the privilege of leading them both to the Lord, and that by God's grace they accepted Jesus into their hearts. I pray that His Holy Spirit would work in them, and for help with these overwhelming problems in our lives. Thank you for praying!

    1. oh Father, I pray for this little father-less family. I ask that you be the Husband and Father that they need. Hold them close in your loving arms, may your peace and strength be their security. Be their Provision and the calming voice in their storms. I pray for the 2 children. You know the fears and anxiety that trouble their little hearts and I pray that they will respond to their mother's godly teaching, and will learn to know you intimately. May they come to know you as the one that will never leave them, never forsake them, never disappoint them and never stop loving and caring for them. Bring loving people into their lives that can fill the empty places and help to support and provide. Bless this family, be their covering and may this Christmas season be blessed with joy and peace. In Jesus' name, amen.

  52. I want to thank you for your prayers. On December 3rd, I asked for your help and God provided the necessary support. The children are able to sleep through the night and are back to their sports. We know there will be bumps ahead but for now we will live in the moment. Please continue to pray for these two young children that they will be guided by the hand of God. Merry Christmas and God bless you.
