My husband and I had a miscarriage last year and are now pregnant again. We are nearly 2/3 through the first trimester and recently saw a beautiful beating heart on ultrasound. I am fortunate to be having a relatively symptom free pregnancy so far but it makes me worry constantly about whether everything is ok. Please pray for our little one and also that I am able to give this worry and anxiety over to God. Thank you so much.

My husband and I recently found out we are expecting again. We currently have three beautiful little boys. Although our biggest concern is for a healthy baby, we really would like to finally add a baby girl to our family. Please pray that we have a girl but most important that the baby is healthy. Thank you!

My Pastor has been recently diagnosed with uteris/ovarian cancer and needs full hysterectomy. Another dear friend has a young mentally challenged daughter, who witnessed her father on his day of visitation; try to commit suicide. I just heard of both of these last night and could use great multitude of prayers. Thank you

We have a 2 year boxer mix who was not socialized at all as a puppy, he was 16 wks when he got him and was very shy. He is very fear reactive and aggressive. We hired a professional training company who supposedly dealt with aggressive dogs, and was told "he will be a piece of cake and no problem training", we needed help to train him to not be people and dog reactive. We had put our trust in them for months, but he was getting worse not better. We now have to have a muzzle on him to got outside for walks, etc. We have recently hired a new trainer who is out of Canada, he was very familiar with the company we hired and their training methods and said it was high pressure training and not the right type for what our dog needed and his issues. We aren't able to afford another $2,000.00 to send him there to be trained therefore he is working via online videos, emails, phone, and skype with us to get him better. He has stated that our dog is suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome now due to the wrong training and we have to basically start from scratch. I have done a lot of reading, research, and working with him on a daily basis as putting him down IS NOT an option for us. He is responding well to his new training methods now, but ask for your prayers to help him get better and be the non-aggressive dog that his is when he's in the house with us. Once he gets to know you he is very lovable, sweet, and cuddly, and he's a smart dog as he knows over 30 commands and tricks that we have trained him. We pray and are requesting more prayers for God's help that he can be an addition to our family outdoor activities without reacting. Thank you for your prayers.

My mother has been making my wife and me miserable. She keeps trying to cause division between me and my wife (we've been happily married for 5 years) by demanding that I make her do things HER way. Recently, she asked us for a LARGE monetary "loan" that she has been dragging her heels in repaying. She recently got a huge inheritance, so I don't see why she needed it in the first place. It also seems like she has appropriated a HUGE chunk of my portion of the inheritance for herself. I don't want to come across as greedy, it just bothers me that my own mother would be acting this way. My wife and I have recently struggled financially, have a growing business together, and really needed that money. I was trying to honor my mother, gave her the money, and now she has been acting even more wicked than normal lately. All I want is for her to honor her promises to repay, which she repeatedly breaks. My business and family need that money, and I am distressed that those things don't seem to mean anything to her. It is starting to stink like a control issue. My mother doesn't ever visit with her grandchildren (my kids), even though they live nearby, and when she does interact with them or talk about them it is usually in a negative context. My wife and I are really trying to honor God and my mother in all of this. She claims to be a Christian, but has lately been pretty rotten, unfair and unduly harsh. Any advice is welcome.
