Life gets boring sometimes and it feels like I'm doing the same thing every day. I tried college but it was not my place at the time. I have been working at the same job for the past six years and there are times when I think I can have a better job or a better position. He has shown me through the last couple of years as long as I ask Him to help me b content with where Im at in my life He will give me opportunities if it's His will. Jesus help me keep my eyes focused on You and don't let my mind get riold up with things such as how can I earn more money and how can I be a more important.

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: HE heard my voice out of HIS TEMPLE, and my cry came before HIM, even into HIS EARS. (Psalm 18:6) KJV When mortal men and modern medicine fails: GOD in Christ Jesus - THE GOD/MAN for us - prevails!!! HOPE in the LORD. ALMIGHTY GOD in JESUS CHRIST, is the only ONE WHO has the POWER to make - whether you are fast asleep or wide awake - your impossible dreams come true!!! What ALMIGHTY GOD has done in the past, ALMIGHTY GOD may choose to do again if you ask --- if it is according to ALMIGHTY GOD's WILL to make the seemingly IMPOSSIBLE, POSSIBLE FOR you!!! I thank our HEAVENLY FATHER GOD, as I continue to covet the faithful fellowship of HIS saints in intercessory prayer with me, for my daughter "Sharon". ALMIGHTY GOD in CHRIST JESUS ALONE, as HE sits ENTHRONED knows exactly why. What ALMIGHTY GOD has provided for my daughter, ONLY THE POWER OF GOD IS ABLE to supply and ONLY THE PRECIOUS SHED, CRIMSON RED, BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST IS MORE THAN SUFFICIENT TO BUY!!! Thank YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD in Christ Jesus, for being THE ONLY FAITHFUL SAVIOR, UPON WHOM, I MUST TRUST AND RELY!!! Above all, taking the shield of FAITH, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. (Ephesians 6:16) That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. (I Corinthians 2:5) That the trial of your FAITH, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto PRAISE and HONOUR and GLORY at the appearing of Jesus Christ: (I Peter 1:7) To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to LIGHT, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by FAITH that is in ME. (Acts 26:18) Knowing this, that the trying of your FAITH worketh patience. (James 1:3) But Jesus turned HIM about, and when HE saw her, HE said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy FAITH hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. (Matthew 9:22) But without FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE to please HIM: for he that cometh to God must believe that HE is, and that HE is a rewarder of them that diligently seek HIM. (Hebrews 11:6) For we walk by FAITH, not by sight: (II Corinthians 5:7) Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1) Humbly and Hopefully in Jesus Christ. Amen.

"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.

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.

I have been clinically depressed since my daughter was born 5 years ago. I have a long history of depression, but this time, we've tried at least 8 medications and nothing has helped to lift the darkness from my days. My doctor is recommending ECT (electroconvulsive therapy). It has a very high success rate but risks are significant- possible short & long term memory loss being the most serious. Please pray for me, ask God to guide me according to His will and what is best for my family.
