My husband is 52 and went to visit a Bible College because He believe the Lord was calling him in the ministry and He want to be obedient to that call.After the visit, he fell apart.He said it was like being struck by lightning..He is now in intensive outpatient therapy for anxiety, confusion, depression, hopelessness and deep pain that never goes away.These are the symptoms of PTSD that he has carried for the past 30 years and have never gone away, only they've became so bad just recently that he feels he cannot work.He needs hope and healing.He is so tired from this illness and he's very discouraged about his future.He said " if I can't carry myself well, how can I possibly expect to carry a congregation- even a small one? If the Lord wants me in the ministry, I have to get better."We are getting medical attention from christian counselor,therapy and medication.We are praying for his deliverance, relief from symptoms of constant deep emotional pain and paralyzing anxiety.This also limits intimacy because he was sexually abused as a child and it's very hard for him to trust.God bless you as you lift our brother in prayer.Thank you very much.

After several years of an abusive employment situation - I left! I know it's was the right thing to do. Today, I'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed with anxiety about finding new employment because of my age. Retirement is down the road (7 years) so finding a job is extremely important. Kindly pray that the right job/opportunity for me comes along soon. Thanks so much!

If you could please pray for my dear son who is facing lots of legal issues that will likely ruin his entire future. He is only 24 and has made a lot of mistakes, but please pray that his probation officer will not hold his past mistakes against him, and will allow him to be expunged of his bad choices at the end of his probation in 4 months. He is a very good person and has lots to offer up to the Lord. The probation officer is getting all his counseling records from the past five years, which hold a lot of struggles he has faced. Please pray that he will be expunged and will grow in faith from all of this. He seriously needs a miracle. He has a new probation officer that is extremely strict. Over the past 14 months his other officers have been positive, caring, and supportive. This one feels like she is out to make him fail. Please pray for him and a miracle. I am so thankful for any prayers you may offer up. Many blessings to you!

Heavenly Father, This has been so hard. The one I love walked out of my life about 1.5 months ago. Our family was split apart. Anger and hurt brought over two weeks of complete silence. Today, for the first time, he responded. I am very thankful for that. I ask that You show us how to take steps to reconnect. Help us to be understanding, be forgiving, and once again to feel that love that drew us together long ago. Cast out resentment and fear. Cast out anger and unpleasant memories that delay our reconciliation. He is a good man. Special. He is honest and moral. Kind and loving. Bring our hearts back together. And show us how to build something new together. A relationship better and stronger than ever before! Help me to heal my past. I was abused in a previous relationship and those memories have haunted me for a very long time. I have been going to court to save my son from that abuser, which has been very hard on me even though it has been many years since it happened. Please open the Judge's eyes and ears so he really sees that my son shouldn't be forced to be in contact with a man who has a history of abusing all the women, and some children, that he had in his life. My son is afraid of him. And I am afraid for my son. I ask that You bring a much needed miracle to this situation. Please...Please let the Judge see my ex for what he really is. Thank You for all the blessings You have given me and my family. In Jesus name, Amen.
