Dear Lord, I choose You and I remember Your in control! Even though sorrow and sadness has been my circumstance as I've fervently interceded for our daughter to return to You-- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! Lord-- I can't say I'm happy but I'm so thankful that I can choose You, every moment of every day. A deep undercurrent of joy is flowing through me. Thank you for our Word say's it best, "Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus" (1 Thes. 5:16-18). My specific prayer for my daughter this evening is that the Holy Spirit will bring TRUTH to LIGHT & EXPOSE LIES! Lord--Your power is the ONLY protection she's got from her toxic culture! Holy Spirit Flow in her through the night and and all day long! Extend mercy and allow her to hear Your still small voice!

My husband recently took a job and and it turns out that there are problems there that he couldn't have known about beforehand. The job uses his hard-earned degree (which he went back to school for after 30 yrs in retail), is based in helping at-risk youth and is close to home with fair salary. However, today was payday and instead of a check they all got a letter saying their money has been delayed. Please pray that God will guide his (our) steps and continue to bless us financially so we can meet our obligations and needs. Please pray with us that he can continue his work here and if this is not where he's meant to be that God will provide a livelihood and lead him to the place he's prepared for him in his work. Where he can serve and please God and meet our needs as well. I am afraid. It's been a series of job disappointments and changes for half-dozen years. We need some stability and even though we are secure in the Lord we are asking for job stability as well. Thank you.

I have requested prayer for this before, and have received hope through prayer, however it seems that for ever step forward, we take 10 steps back. The devil is trying to destroy my marriage. My husband has turned his back on God and his family. He has become a recluse and when I try to talk about God with him, he becomes so defensive. He will no longer pray with me, and he has such a coldness about him. In February God touched my husband and things were getting better, but he has now fallen back into deep despare and is negative and bitter at the world, and most of all me. I think he is now threatened by my faith after walking away from his. This is so hard for me, to see him in such darkness, to see how it's destroying our family. I'm trying so hard to hang on to God's promises, but in the midst of it, it's hard and I'm asking myself why I'm going through this, where is God, where is the healing he promised? I need prayer that I can keep my faith strong and weather this storm, and I pray that my husband's faith is restored and that God pours his spirit out on him and our marriage.

Dear Lord, I pray You would teach me how to intercede for my daughter. What changes do I need to make? I believe by praying I can help her hear from You--Lord. May You lead her back to Yourself and out of her rebellion!. Satan's traps are already destroying her.. Thank You that because Your love and power are poured out in me, my prayers for her will have power. Thank You that You love me and You will hear my prayer. I'm going to keep on praying no matter what happens, and I'm not giving up! But Lord, give me faith to believe and patience to wait for answers. Today I say, "For this adult daughter I prayed, and YOu, Lord, have heard my prayers and granted my petition" (1 Samuel 1:27). I give You all praise and glory.

My sister is a single mom with 2 autistic children (ages 5 and 18). Her aunt (in her 50s), who lives with her and helps care for the children, suddenly lost total vision in one eye and partial vision in the other. They are in the emergency room now. Please pray that her vision is restored.
