Good evening, My friend, Cory Whidby, is currently an inmate at Jackson Correctional Institute in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. He has recently converted to Christianity while incarcerated at Oakhill. He recently wrote me a letter and I ask that I submit a prayer request on his behalf. Cory is having a tough time during his incarceration. He has been in segregation two different times and he's worried about his future. He knows that "Greater is he who lives in Him than he that is in the world", but lately Cory has become discouraged. He feels rejected and abandoned and his faith is being tested. Please pray now for his deliverance and restoration. Thank you kindly. Kelly

"JW" is not my blood daughter, but is the mother of my granddaughter, and I have grown to love her as my own. She and my son broke up when my granddaughter was only 5 months old (18 months ago) and he has not tried to see her since. My son no longer communicates with me after I stopped enabling his alcoholism; tough love and all... but that's a different story and a different prayer for a different day. Today, "JW" is in need of healing prayer and moral support. She is a single mom who recently injured her back and hasn't been able to work, therefore no income. And raising a busy two-year old. She is hurting physically, financially, emotionally, and is searching spiritually. She is open to Jesus and believes in prayer. She has allowed me to pray over her a number of times for other injuries sustained through her job. Tonight when I anointed her with oil and prayed for her, I received an impression that she is suffering from a slipped disk that is resting on a nerve which is causing so much pain. Doctors have put her on Prednisone, Ibuprofen, muscle relaxers, physical therapy, and recommended chiropractic adjustments--none of which have worked over the past 4 weeks. None have even ordered x-rays. Please pray that God will lead "JW" to the right path toward healing and that God would draw her closer to Jesus through this difficult time. Pray that God would place a solid support network around her as she raises her beautiful daughter. Father God, I lift up "JW" to you and ask that You would have mercy on her, strengthen her from the inside out, and impart your wisdom to her spirit and soul. Show her that she is invaluable to You, Father, and fulfill her and bless her in her role as a mother. I also ask that You would place a garrison of Your angelic host around her to protect her from any attacks in the spiritual realm to keep her from falling in love with Jesus or to attack her physically/financially/emotionally. I ask these things in Your son's name. Thank You for hearing our prayers, Father. And thank you, PrayerWorks partners for agreeing with me in this prayer for "JW's" wellbeing.

Recently, I have been feeling like nothing is going right for me in the world. It feels like no matter how many times I cry and beg on my knees to God to save me from what this seems like eternal misery, He just doesn't seem to hear my cry for help. Unfaithful as that may sound, I continue to ask for his forgiveness. I have pleaded to Him to save me from this misery. To make my life filled with Miracles to make up for the depression and misery I have been feeling. I respect it if he chooses not to help and guide me; however, I don't know how much more of this I can take. I have given my life to Him and accepted Jesus Christ as my savior. I just pray and pray and PRAY TO GOD! He will finally hear me out and save me from this misery. I need a miracle. I am desperate for miracles.. now more than ever.. I pray to God. This is my Last Hope.. Amen..

I have recently left an abusive relationship that lasted 4 years. My boyfriend has always been controlling and jealous and emotionally abusive, but things got worse when his 8 year old son died a year and a half ago (so he needs prayers too!) Our relationship has deteriorated steadily to the point where my son (who lives with us) spends most of his day hiding in his room with his head buried to not hear the fighting. He belittles me, accuses me of everything possible, demeans me, threatens me, lies to me, everything that can destroy a relationship. I have stuck with him for so long not only because I love him and believe that I made a commitment to him but because I was always scared to leave. When things got physically violent, I stayed at a shelter but he found me and I have always tried to protect the people that shelter me when I leave. I have gotten to the end of my line..... I cannot live like this anymore. I cannot go to church without accusations, work meetings are out of the question, going to the store without him is a big no-no. I don't eat or sleep well because my anxiety has increased to debilitating levels. I left him yesterday and am staying with my parents. My son is torn, he was just getting used to a new school (he's now in middle school), but knows the relationship is toxic for both of us. I need prayers to stay on the right path, to keep making decisions that are healthy for my son and for myself. Thank you.
