My uncle has been having heart problems over the last couple years. He is back in the hospital for the third time. I don't know if he know the lord so just pray he will come to know him. If it God will he will get better.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. Thank you for healing my father's foot (he had an infection that started over a year ago. he ended up this year having his toe removed, but the infection is finally gone. as soon as he can walk, he can come home from the nursing home). Thank you Jesus for also bringing my mom from near death, to life. (She had a very bad colon. The doctor removed a foot and a half of it cos it was too long. God literally breathed life back into my mom. She went from barely being able to sit in a chair, to walking the full length of the Super Woodman's store with no trouble, which she used to complain about so much. Smile. Amen!) Thank you Jesus for my job. ( I was hired back at my old job where i had worked for 8 years, and i thought i would never be able to return to. It was a door only God could open.) Thank you Jesus for my really nice newer 2006 Town and Country Caravan. It's not new, but it is very very nice, almost like new. Smile). And thank you Jesus for eternal life. Lord, I need some prayer today. My daughter's father, who is a crack and heroin addict is still in my life. He does not live with me right now, but he wants to come back home in the worst way. Lord I know you are able to do all things in your plan for my life, i just need to get out of the way and let you. But sometimes, it's hard for me to see what is the right way Lord. So I am requesting some prayer tonight so that I can make the right decision as to whether or not i give my daughter's father one last chance at a life where he can be a part of her life and mine. This is not an easy choice. My daughter's father has a very long history of failures and using me to get money and things he needs and then be off on his way to make bad decisions, mostly of which are using drugs. But i know deep down he is a good man in his heart. And i know he loves his daughter and wants to be a big part of her life. I could write a library of books about relationships i have been in with men, but this one would be the longest and the hardest. Lord, i know you have a plan for my life. It might not be the plan i have for my life, but after all i have been through, mostly in the last year, i know Lord you are able to guide me, and lead me in the direction you want and need me to go. So i am putting it all in your hands Lord Jesus. I pray for you to show me the way. and I pray that anyone reading this will pray for me and with me also. P.S. my mom is having surgery again on March 18th. Please help this surgery make her much better. And my dad needs to walk. I love you Lord Jesus. and I thank you for all your answered prayer ahead of time. And i know some things take time Lord, so i will try and be patient. Amen.

I lost my job on Tuesday. on the lonely drive home to face my wife (who is in the midst of divorcing me) and sons the transmission on my truck went out. My checking account balance is close to zero after a string of heavy debt burdens that recently chellenged my wife and I. Okay...now that you have read what could be a potentially heart-wrenching prayer request, let me offer some praise and encouragement to others who face similar challenges in life...On my lonely drive home, I received a call from my wife. She was bubbly and shared with me that she got offered the job that I asked prayer for on February 25th. She also thanked me for so many things, and encouraged me as I have done for her so many times. She shared that she had a change of heart and really does want us to be together, citing extreme stress being at the core of her desire to leave me, and not feeling worthy. Her job offer happened minutes from when I was let go from mine. When I got home and my wife and I shared the events of the day with our boys, my younger son, who is in an auto tech class at his high school shared that the school had puchased the exact transmission that is needed for my truck, and if I would allow him, they can repair my truck in class for little to no cost. Now, who says that prayer does not work??? More proof? I have been praying for some time for some relief from huge debt burdens. As it turns out, we paid off 'just enough' of our debts, where my wife's new job will provide sufficient income for our needs until I find a new job. God is providing our needs, and allowing me to see it clearly...no veiled provisions. more importantly, my wife and boys see it too. My faith in God has sustained me through horrible stress, and shown those closest to me the power of God. He owns it all; He knows all about our needs (if we will only ask); He has the power to do all things for good. Thank you Lord, and thank you prayer warriors. Be encouraged. God IS on the ball!

My 28 year old sister lost her husband to a work accident two years ago. Right now she is especially struggling because she has to come face-to-face for the first time with the people whose mistake caused his death. Please send up a prayer of desperation that her hand clings to the Lord and that her heart says calm. Help her to be civil to these people when she sees them! Please God!

I have just gotten into a relationship with a very nice non-Christian. Please pray that either God will turn his heart to follow and believe the one true living Lord, or He will grant me the courage and strength to end the relationship knowing His plans are what really matters. :)
