This year my family is sending out Christmas cards to family, friends, pastors and teachers. Our cards give God all the gory and him only. Please pray that the people that receive my family's Christmas cards would see God shining through our eyes and feel God's presence all around them. That everyone would be touched by my family's cards. Merry Christmas!

I feel like I have lost all hope. I feel as if I am nothing. I was at a Christmas Brunch yesterday at church and and was told I am a gift from God. I wanted to believe it. I feel in my heart I am a good person and I love God. I want to do right by him. 2 husbands and many close friends have walked away from a relationship with me over the years without giving me any reason. I don't understand. I feel so alone. I feel so hopeless. I feel worthless. I pray daily that I will die. I pray for God to take me instead of someone who is wanted and needed in this world. I am hurting so terribly. I want it to end. It hurts me to think these thoughts are hurting God. I have not talked with anyone about these feelings. I just smile and pretend to be happy. It is now so tiring to keep up this charade. I need the pain to go away. I find myself unable to trust others. I am trying to trust God and cling to him.

Please pray that God will open doors for me as I finish this year of teaching and I am seeking a teaching/administrative position in a new district. I am hoping to find a new position this spring and I am hoping not to have to move away from family and friends. In Christ, Mello

Please pray for a family friend, her name is Thea, who has been through a lot of treatment and hospitalization for cancer--it spread to her brain and the doctors don't hold out too much hope for successful treatment anymore. They are taking a break to see how the tumor responds after the last round of radiation, and won't do anything further if it persists and doesn't shrink. She is young (early thirties) with two little girls--one is less than a year old. We are going over in a prayer team tonight to surround her and prayer for healing. I'm not real sure how she feels about God, so we want to be sure that we point her to Jesus and that she will find hope and salvation in the One who is the only source of it. Please pray that the Holy Spirit would guide our words, prayer and actions tonight as we go over there to be with her and her immediate family.

Please pray for my mother who is fighting stage 4 lung cancer. She has lost much of her appetite and will to eat, and has since lost much of her energy as well. She is struggling physically and emotionally. Please pray that she feels surrounded and embraced by the love of family and friends and especially the love of Jesus. She is having some scans done on Wednesday to check the cancer's progress. Please pray for good results. I do not want to sound selfish, but please pray for me as well. She is my best friend and I am trying to help her through this from several states away. I feel that I don't have many to turn to for support. My husband lost his father a year ago, and tends to withdraw from the situation if I get emotional. Above all, please pray for my mom!
