Just found out that my father who lives in California had a stroke yesterday morning. There has been some loss of ability on his right side arm and leg as well as some facial muscle loss on the right side of his face. My Aunt lives close to him and is able to get some things under control and help devise plans for his future. Unfortunately, my father didn't think it was necessary to have medical insurance. We are hoping that some sort of insurance/health care will be available with minimal cost. We know he has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but are confident that the Lord will use this situation to His glory. We are looking for prayers of wisdom, strength and open doors for [easy] transitions and for his salvation. Thank you!

The weekend is coming up, and that is always the hardest for me. I just got out of a relationship with someone who I have mutual friends with, and running into him at church or social events is so hard because he is so rude to me. Please pray the Lord will create boundaries between us, so that I do not run to him at all this summer. Also, please pray the Lord will send me godly friends who will help distract me from him. Also pray that I stop thinking about my ex, and can move forward with my life. Please pray the Lord will send me a future husband quickly. Please pray I will see this breakup as a blessing and God's provision for my life! Thank you.

please pray for mom to have peace and understanding of our Father's love and acceptance, to choose life and a good future, not despair and continued cycle of desperation and desolation - she is currently in a serious depression and possibly suicidal - many poor decisions, dependance on false hopes and drugs/alcohol - son is in safe haven with friends, but may be temporary, not sure of the future for either. Pray that son has no bad memories of the turmoil, but finds the hope of our Savior at every turn on his life journey.

I need help moving on from a break up that happened fairly recently. Please pray the Lord will give me the self-control I need to manage my emotions. The strength to persevere and an eternal perspective that helps me dwell on the future, and not the here and now. May the Lord bless me with a hope for a future, and open my eyes to his marvelous grace all around. Please pray that He would increase my faith to show me that He is a good God that is for me, and does not withhold any good thing from those that love Him. I will say to the Lord, "my refuge, my fortress, the God in whom I trust." May he break any tie that binds me to my ex-and help me not desire him physically. Thank you.

I've been requesting prayer for my marriage for several months. My wife and I have been separated since September after I committed a horrible sin which caused deep emotional pain for my wife and my stepdaughters. We have a 2 year old son whom my wife hasn't allowed me to see for the past 7 months. I repented immediately and have been seeking help via Christian counseling and Celebrate Recovery. My wife had indicated several months ago that she planned to divorce me. I had recently given up on our marriage and was considering legal action so I could see my son--then, last week, my father in-law unexpectedly passed away from a massive heart attack. I attended his wake, where to my surprise, my wife allowed me to play with my son. She told me that the day before he died, her dad told her that I was not a bad guy--that I probably just messed up one time. She also said he wanted her to let me see my son. Her uncle told me that her dad hoped for us to get back together. She did not say anything about us having a future together, but since our talk at the wake, I feel there may by some small sliver of hope that we could somehow be reconciled someday. I have been praying for a miracle since September, and the way things are converging right now, I know God is up to something. Please pray that my God will use my father in law's death to change my wife's heart and give her the desire to pursue reconciliation. Please pray that God will miraculously restore my marriage and our family. Thanks.
