Hi everyone, I asking for prayers from everyone today . I have had MS since 2008 and have pushed treatment and medication away in the hopes it was all just a mistake ,false reading or just a crazy medical error. I have been doing well. No symptoms that I know of my MRI came back unchanged no new lessons or active ones. But the last few weeks I have had little flare ups here and there. My DR. suggested that treatment of daily injections wold be the nesessary thing to do. I am terrified of needles and taking any form of medication. I am scared of side effects. I have children I have a family and want to be there for them. I am afraid that something bad will happen if I take this medication. I have a nurse coming out today to answer all my questions but I have been feeling anxious scared and have been crying all morning. If you could please parry that I do not have any major side effect and that this medication works in slowing down anything that is going on I would be very grateful. I am at my end with my emotions and wish I did not have to deal with this. I feel like i am being punished for all of the mistakes and bad things I have done in my life . I have asked for forgiveness but I still feel gulity and really think this is my punishment . I just want this to go away and I know it will not. I want to understand why this is happening andI know I never will. I want to answers and I know I can not have them. So Ask again if you all could just pray for a nobody like me. I am so lost right now and no one understands how I feel.. I just want this to go away.

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 The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries on their own.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.

"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.
