I have a co-worker who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I am asking people to pray for her physical and mental health. Please give her strength in this trying, stressful, uncertain time in her life. Help her to have less anxiety and fear and to find support in her friends, her family and her faith when things seem overwhelming. Please help her to know that there are so many people who care about her and are here to help her through this difficult time.

Father God I'm desperate for some guidance and wisdom. I've been praying for months and years for things in my life that seem to always produce trials or just never go away. I need some very clear answers and lifting up in prayer. I'm a single mom of 3 children. 2 teenagers and one pre-teen. It is incredibly hard work in itself. But my son has been on and off been struggling with drugs and lying and poor choices. I've sought all varying types of help. Classes Christian counselor support from myself and it is a constant battle. I'm a full time teacher and in a brand new district and have am extremely (behaviors) challenging class as well as very low level academic performance. I go home daily wondering if I'm in the right profession and extremely exhausted. I love children and teaching but am struggling so much this year...I had a relationship for a year with a great guy and then he disappeared for months due to grief and some of his own issues. He resurfaced a few weeks ago wanting to hang out again and it felt extremely comfortable and natural. We have a wonderful time together but he keeps his distance. Unfortunaley we made a poor choice and were a little too intimate which lede to question his motives. He stated he was terrified of a relationship and it is safer to keep me at a distance not necessarily easier... He also stated he has been dating or hanging out with other people as well. I asked him why he bothered to contact me? Of course he misses me and cares a lot about me... I'm completely heartbroken and devastated. I have been praying for months for God to lead us back to each other If it is meant to be? This has been such a battle and trial for me. I honestly don't know what or how to pray anymore for all that is weighing me down... I pray constantly...but feeling like God isn't there. I pray for direction and restoration mostly? Please pray for me

Please pray for my son not to feel invisible and give him the self esteem he needs to function in todays world. He has trouble with social anxiety and meeting people. May God send him a true friend to have fun with and confide in and be a good influence for him. Thank You so much.

Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success. Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time! The path of life leads upward for the wise; they leave the grave behind. The LORD tears down the house of the proud, but he protects the property of widows. The LORD detests evil plans, but he delights in pure words. Greed brings grief to the whole family, but those who hate bribes will live. The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking; the mouth of the wicked overflows with evil words. The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:22-29 NLT) We can make our own plans, but the LORD gives the right answer. People may be pure in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their motives. Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed. The LORD has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster. The LORD detests the proud; they will surely be punished. Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin. By fearing the LORD, people avoid evil. (Proverbs 16:1-6 NLT) The path of the virtuous leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe. Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud. Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the LORD will be joyful. The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant words are persuasive. There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death. (Proverbs 16:17-21, 25 NLT) Hot-tempered people must pay the penalty. If you rescue them once, you will have to do it again. Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. You can make many plans, but the LORD's purpose will prevail. (Proverbs 19:19-21 NLT) Please pray for my boyfriend!!! For God to help him realize he needs to stop living in the wild worldly lifestyle. He needs to see that the godly lifestyle is what's right and what he truly wants and needs. He is starting to go down a path with another girl who is worldly, and leading him towards destruction, when this really seems like the right path to him. He thinks we are broken up now, but the great I AM has the power to change his mind and work in him. Everyone who struggles with this, listen to Lecrae's song called Killa. This song describes how my boyfriend struggles. I love him unconditionally. The way Jesus loves me. and pray for him every single day. I just want him to turn back to me knowing this is the right path. Pray persistently for him to be delivered of sex opposition and have the strength to resist that evil and not give in to it, and to do the right thing. and that he will be delivered of his unforgiving resentment. He needs to not hold things against people, but see past the bad moments so he can see the good that there is. Pray that me, his parents, and his christian friends will speak the correct words into him for him to not resist us, but turn back to us knowing the truth and correct way! He needs the protection and armor of God to not give in to the worldly girls who speak evil influence into him daily. I might be stronger of a Christian than him, but he's no worse of a sinner than me. All sin is sin in God's eyes. My boyfriend needs to realize that and not see himself and worse than me. Satan is attacking him a lot and it is hard for him to withstand Satan, but there is power in prayer!! It is not easy to do the right thing, but I believe God is with him and will help him!! I will never give up on my boyfriend I believe in the power of Jesus!! Please lift this up to the lord with me everyone!!! In the name of Jesus he will be delivered!

My boyfriend Eduardo is in DEEP need of deliverance from the strongholds of sex and unforgiving resentment that he has!!! Please pray for him persistently lifting him up to God!!! I know God can work in his life for this and I believe God will!! My heart cries out for him because I love him and don't want to see him in this wrong lifestyle path! Eduardo has had this problem basically his whole life. He has told me about the time he became saved, but most times it's really hard to believe that his life was changed by the Holy Spirit because of his actions and lifestyle. He is happy in it! :( I am a Christian woman and we have been dating for two years. I've seen how God has worked in our relationship these 2 years, he has always stepped in and made the way for Eduardo and I when there was no way possible. I know God wants this relationship to be together. But there is a bad girl that came into his life who is tempting him and pulling him away- that is from satan! 1 Peter 5:8-9. Galatians 5:16-17. He slowly keeps pulling away from me. He said he prayed about it and said that this girl is what he needs and he feels I am not the right girl for him. But that can not be truth imparted to him from God! Because God will never encourage us to live a sinful lifestyle, and that's what this girl is offering and seducing him with. I don't want him to go down an evil worldly path. (Like he had before he met me, and like he is pushing hard for with this other girl now!) I have always given him unconditional love. I always will. That girl Latecia might give him sex that makes him happy for the moment, but this girl will always love him truly and in every way possible. I know that he heard a word from God. His mom told me that God spoke to Eduardo and told him that he was in danger. Eduardo might think I am the problem/danger because we have had maybe 2 or 3 problems in our whole relationship. But what couple won't have a few problems? One of the problems was that I got him into a car wreck last summer and he said he can't forgive that and see past it. He notices all the bad things and doesn't see or remember hardly any of our good. He says we always have problems, when in all realness- we have only had a couple of problems, but it stays bad because Eduardo has resentment and struggles deeply with sexual opposition when those temptations come up. Out of our two years there have been many girls that start to cause problems to pull him away, but God always brings him back to me. This time it seems the other girl is winning. But the Bible tells us that Satan will not win in the end! He will always be conquered by the Lord. Whatever God wants, will be. The Devil will never encourage us to do something great for God- that is how people can discern if something is from God or Satan. Eduardo needs to not harden his heart to what God has said, and not turn from what's right. The danger is him going into the worldly lifestyle- that God keeps trying to speak to him about. When we were eating lunch at a mall in Albacete Spain he said he always thinks about how I am such a "good girl" and he is a "bad boy", and often often thinks it won't work because of that. He has said part of the time he wants to be my love, and part of the time he wants to be free. (To live that worldly lifestyle:(. ) One day when I was praying about Eduardo, God showed me all the perfect verses about living in the world. 1 Peter 2:11-12; 2 Peter 2:4-10; 2 Peter 2:13-22; Titus 2:11-14. He's grieving the holy spirt. And that's a scary dangerous thing to ignore God when he speaks. Pray that Eduardo will change his lifestyle to the godly one and not worldly one that is easy to get sucked into. Pray that he will see that this is the right path, and stay with me. The walk with God isn't promised to be easy, but it is what's right and it's what's best. I wish he could see that true happiness isn't found in the worldly lifestyle of sex and just about having fun. Real happiness is found in the godly lifestyle that he needs, that I offer to him as his christian girlfriend who really loves him with everything I am. I know God can turn this around. I believe God will, and that God will show him I'm truly the best godly woman for him. We have not talked in about a week, because his mom suggested that I not talk to him, give him time to calm down and let God work. I'm praying hard every day. But the bad thing is this girl talks to him every day too, while I'm not talking to him. His parents are both Christians, wonderful people. His dad is a pastor. His parents have no idea how deeply he struggles with this sex stronghold. They would love for Eduardo to be my spouse one day. (Eduardo and I were/are planning to get married in summer 2016.) They are praying for him and I every day. Pray his parents will say the right things to him every day. (To speak encouragement of me to him and truth to him about the godly lifestyle.) And pray especially that God will keep speaking the right things to him. Be praying for our conversation that is to come in the future sometime. I don't know who will start it, if I will or if he will. And I want it to be nice, good conversation. Right now I think I will continue to remain quiet to let God work. But Eduardo has a hard heart and doesn't seem to be changing, this is gonna be really hard for him to do. I remember him saying, when I want something no one can stop me. God did design us to have free will, but I pray that God's presence will be so present at all moments on him that he doesn't choose that wrong bad path. Pray that he will turn back to me, I honestly will love and care for him all my life.- really, all my life. I love him second next to God and would do anything in the world for him. It's not like I won't have sex with him, I just won't until we are married next summer. Because I love and honor God above him. I know that anything that's in the hands of God can't be snatched. But I'm asking for prayer to be lifted up right now so God will be working in him for our relationship to get better sooner rather than later. Pray that he will not hold resentment over past mistakes and be able to be more faithful, not turning to worldly sex desires when the opposition comes up. Share this with your friends and family please!! I truly thank you all so much.
