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 my cousin\'s wife, Linda, who has been diagnosed with cancer.

    Sue, 12/12/2014
  2. Thank you for giving me offers from all my 5 university. I pray that you will help me to become a clinical psychologist and give me a job afterwards. I also pray that you will arrange my transport for this sunday when i go out with my friends. Please? Thanks in advance.

  3. Please pray for a dear friend, William F., who has been diagnosed with cancer.

    Sue, 12/12/2014
  4. I need to realize God does love me, even tho I feel like a fraud and a user when I go to church, because it\'s always to ask for something or with the unrealistic hope that my life will instantly become perfect simply by going. And that everything will suddenly fall into place in every aspect of my life. I felt my prayers hadn\'t been answered in the past & stopped going to church for many years. Now I\'ve returned to church. I also now realize these unanswered prayers were blessings in disguise, where God protected me from what I thought I needed. I need help believing that my faith DOES & WILL make a positive difference in my life and the lives of those I love. Please pray that I can really FEEL and BELIEVE God loves me and that I\'m not a phony going through the motions.

  5. I needs prayers that the judge will approve my check and I get it this coming week as i do not have any money for Christmas or a miracle that i will receive money for x-mas and I urgently need $1500 for rent by the 19th and i do not know where I will get this money. Pray that i will get the job i put in for with the state I have been unemployed for many years. I need this job. I would also like prayers that my boyfriend will get an attorney and his case in court by next week so we can be together. I would also like to give strength and power to my family to overcome any addictions they may have. Pray that we will a good Christmas and that everything will turn out somehow. Please pray for what i am requesting in Jesus name amen.

  6. O merciful God, we cry to Thee for pardon and for mercy.
    We are an unbelieving and perverse generation.
    We are disobedient, disloyal and ungrateful to Thee.
    We have excluded Thee from our homes, our schools, our places of business.
    We are no longer worthy to be called Thy children.
    Merciful Father, spare America!
    Forgive us!
    Save us from the scourge we deserve.
    Teach us Thy law, and move our wills to serve Thee today and everyday.
    Merciful God, please spare America!

  14. Heavenly Father, Thank you for your blessing & grace we received for our family. FATHER GOD / LORD JESUS, please resurrect Melissa left eye to 20/20 vision and make the eye disease and inflammation of the optic nerve go away permanently.
    Jesus said, \"I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it\" (John 14:13, 14).
    I come to you Heavenly Father today and I have confidence in Your Word, and I take hold of Your promises to completely heal my daughter Melissa Ang.
    Please forgive all her sins and remove all obstacles that is preventing her from healing.
    FATHER GOD / JESUS, you are the miracle healer & physician. I believe whatever treatment medication, injection & laser on the eye you have directed the doctor is to resurrect Melissa\'s left eye 20/20 vision permanently and making the eye disease go away.
    We put our trust and faith with JESUS that Dr Sharel C Ongchin is the doctor that GOD has directed us to diagnose and treat her. We praise GOD and have faith that Melissa\'s left eye will be completely healed.
    In Jesus name, I pray. Amen!

I ask for your intercession so that we are under God\'s guidance as we go through this attempt in reconciling MAJ and RMA\'s marriage. We pray that the Holy Spirit come to our midst, fill our hearts and minds so that we are able to sort this out amicably. May the Lord help MAJ be strong in his resolve to change and become a better man of God, husband and father. Please pray for RMA to be open to reconciliation so that they can raise their child in a unified family living in love, faith, understanding, humility, joy and forgiveness. May the Lord turn their ears deaf to advice that reconciliation is not good. Please pray that the family will get past these current trials and come out with stronger bonds and love for each other and their child. Please pray that the Lord bless their families, friends, co-workers, community members so that they all support reconciliation, peace and chance for rekindling love
