Looking for extra support in prayers today for my 16 year old daughter who's been though so much sadness as well as mental, emotional, and physical pain throughout her life because of issues with her biological dad. Today is the day we hope to find out from a court hearing that will be in her favor and grant me, her mother, sole custody of her. We have waited for a long time for the truth and justice to be served and this is what we wish for today and for the rest of her life, that she be watched over not only by me but the Lord as well. That he grant her peace, strength and comfort when she feels as though she has lost all of these. May the grace of God be on her today and always watching over her and caring and that others will help support her though their prayers and offer the strength she is not able to hold on her own. Allow those is charge to know the difference and do what she is in need of which is to never have to see her biological dad again. In HIS name we pray, Amen!

I am reaching out today because I feel so over whelmed. I am a Mother of two raising two children ages 13 and 14 and I am also going through a divorce. I have prayed for my husband for many years and have even worked on my relationship with God to help change him and bring him back to God. He is heavily into drugs and partying. He has nothing to do with the children and so I am moving on. I have come to comfort with that and prayed a lot about the divorce. I am asking for prayers for my financial struggle. I would full time to care for the children and every week I am robbing Perter to pay Paul just to try to make it but I am never able to get ahead. My children are home schooled due to my son have disability and my daughter helps a lot with him even thought I would prefer her not to have to do that. I have started a home based business but it is not going too well because I am always working my traditional job and working with the kids. I have been praying for God to help me Be able to stay at home full time and teach the children about him and be the Christian mother I have wanted to be my entire life. I an new to asking for prayers and actually find it hard to ask but I am asking please pray me me and my children. At this point I'm lucky to have a place to live so we are looking at not having a Christmas this year. All the kids want for Christmas is a 3 bedroom House since we are in a small one and half bedroom but I know that is not going to happen until my business gets going and the income starts coming in. Anything under the tree would a=be a blessing this year and so that is all that I am asking, prayer for my finances and business to grow so I can provide then necessities and a few extra things for my children.

Our 11 year old daughter will be undergoing surgery in 3 weeks. This is her 12th surgery overall--this is a "re-do" of her surgery 4 years ago that was unsuccessful. The recovery period is 6 weeks, which is difficult for an elementary school child--very limited physical activity and limited diet. Despite this being surgery #12, it doesn't make it any easier. The weeks leading up to surgery are always stressful. The timing of the surgery is very important so that additional medical procedures will be able to completed, and also so that she misses as little school as possible. I ask for prayers for good health for my daughter in the next 3 weeks leading up to her surgery......prayers for a good recovery......prayers to guide the surgeon and hospital staff that will care for her. Thank you for your prayers, and God bless you....

Could you please pray for my two little boys? I have a 6 yr old and a 4 yr old and they are so very young. They are wonderful loving sweet boys who are being "pegged" as children with ADHD in the public school system . I am so CONFUSED> Yes, they are fidgety and wigglly but they are also young and immature and BOYS. Is our school system trying to fit square pegs into round holes? How can the teachers be better equipped to work with these high energy boys who need a little bit more work and attention? Are our teachers so overworked and over whelmed that the solution seems to always point towards medication? I am at a crossroads and trying to decide if a medication would be the answer for my oldest to "fit in" better . I don't want them to suffer or even fall behind academically which has not yet happened but is very possible because of the oldest one's inability to focus on instruction and work independently. The younger one has not yet had that suggestion made to us by the school, but I foresee it in the future of his educational career . Please pray for my little ones as they face school, teachers and friends on a daily basis and begin to navigate their path through life. I know that God has a plan for them and he will take care of them. But, please pray for me , that I would have the inner strength, wisdom and courage to make the best decisions for my little men.

Over the past 7 months I have gone through a lot of changes. I graduated from college, I have moved out on my own, have a full time job, and found the love of my life. To people who look at me first glance, I'm always smiling, always laughing, and loving life. Only my family and a handful of people know that those laughs and smiles only last for a certain amount of time though. Anxiety has really overtaken my happiness in life. It's a constant worry that snowballs into even more. Daily anxiety attacks where I find it hard to breathe, hard to focus, and constant tears. In the last month, I've had an overwhelming feeling to ask for help. So I took the leap of faith and talked to my mom about everything that was on my mind, and started seeing a therapist. I think it was God nudging me and telling me it's okay to ask for help. It's been difficult opening up to a stranger, but I think I'm finally getting the sense of relief I've been praying for. If you have any time, please pray for healing amongst me as well as the millions of others who suffer from anxiety. God bless.
