A friend from Ohio just got a text message from her brother asking her to shower him and his parish in prayer. He is part of a mission team and ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents. The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries on their own. They are determined to stick it out for the sake of the families - even if it means their own deaths. He is very afraid, has no idea how to even begin ministering to these families who have had seen their children martyred. Yet he says he knows God has called him for some reason to be his voice and hands at this place at this time. He is begging prayers for his courage. These brave parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children, that they chose martyrdom. Later we received the following text message from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). "We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food too. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated it's staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!" Please pray for deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS, and its extreme Islamic goals to massacre all Christians in the region.

So my boss informed me of some great things coming up for me soon. She said to me that she would talk to me about it later that week, but never did. I asked her a few weeks later what it was about, and she said " I will tell you but you can't tell anyone," we are sending you for special training. ( I do not want to say the program just incase other people may be reading this and they may know its me.) I have been at my job for 2 years, everyone else has had special training except me, and it isn't about me justifying that, because I am truly happy for the others who get to go, but its really bothering me because this was talked about WEEKS AGO, and still nothing. It just gets me upset because I hold a elevated position at my job, but I am neglected the most I feel like at times. Not sure if its in my mind, but I get taken for granted alot. Oh well, but THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT to me, and I am being serious, if they tell me that I can't go or just ignore that all together, I will not work at my job and I pray that you would help me PRAY and that I may see some light. I am a light of Christ at work, i Am not perfect, I need to improve, but I just ask that GOD would bless me because I truly try every day to serve God and this would only help me with other people. xo thank you, Amen.

I know a man who is very honest, hard-working and intelligent. He has done a variety of mechanical jobs, but right now his specialty is fixing small engines, like lawn mowers and snowmobiles. He is scrupulous and charges very low rates for his labor. He also has a pleasant disposition. The problem is that his health is in decline and most people don't want to hire him. Please pray that God sends more work his way and heals him of his health issues, and that God would lead tender-hearted Christians into his life to guide him in the Bible. Thank you for your prayers. I have seen God do amazing things with the believers who gather for prayer on this website. God bless you all, you are loved and precious!

My daughter has married a man that has been consistently and methodically isolating her from all the people in her life that love her. He eventually convinces her that everyone that is in her life and that comes into her life (I mean everyone), eventually can not be trusted and are toxic to her,( friends and family included), and the only solution to any conflict or disagreements is to just exile people from their lives.They now have a child and I am fearful for the influences that she will receive. I truly miss my girl and my granddaughter and I pray daily (nearly all day) for God to help her see the truth. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to endure, so I'm asking for prayers for strength and courage for myself and all that love her, and for her to have the same, and also for her to see through his lies and see the truth, to see the light. Prayers for his salvation would be a bonus. Thank you for your time and prayers.
