Where is god? In four years, my dad has lost his job, my parents have divorced, i have lost both grandparents, i have lost all economic status, i have lost my house, and my faith in god. I went into freshman year with an unbreakable resolve for God, now my faith is all but gone. I haven't seen my strong, professional, loving, spiritual dad in months, who having been kicked down so many times, i can't bear to watch anymore. My grades are perfect, and my friends are amazing. Yet even my friends can't see whats going on. I feel so cold, so dark, so calculated. In every single instance in the past four years, whether it be a job opportunity for my dad, or as simple as a sense of stability, i have been consistently disappointed to the point that i no longer want to feel. I feel like i'm running a marathon, and i haven't been able to breath in four years, and the finish line is four years ahead. All i can do is keep pushing forward, and with or without God i will. But what i've experienced, the complete lack of faith, is the darkest place i have ever known. I pray that God reveals himself to me, to help remind me that i am not completely alone. I pray that in my success, i don't fall into bitter coldness. I pray that my siblings continue to enjoy the bliss of ignorance surrounding our financial dangers. I pray that i finish my senior year strong, without succumbing to stress. I pray that i don't become entirely hard, and cold, and calculated. This is all i have to give. I'm a single teenager, with no depression, with a roof over my head and food on the table; with clothes, and friends, and siblings that i would protect with my life. I have no worries about my ability to graduate with honors, with all A's in AP and advanced classes, to go to college and graduate into professional job and eventual graduate degree. I am worried about my heart, about my soul, about who i really am wasting away and growing cold. Everybody is oblivious, and in all honesty i can't imagine bringing the burden of how i feel upon them, they deserve so much more. So i lift my burden to God, and hope that instead of frantically clawing at air to find something to grasp on to, he makes himself known, and lifts me up. I've been beaten on to my knees, and though i cannot stand, i refuse to fall. I am unbreakable, my soul however, is not. I am not in immediate danger, i am safe, and warm, and full. I do not feel that i deserve the same amount of consideration as those without a home, without a family, without the safety of a bed, but i ask that after prayers, after those in dire peril have been prayed for, keep me in the back of your mind, and at the bottom of your heart. Please pray for me.

Please pray that God would restore my relationship with my boyfriend! We are in our 30's and have been dating 9 months and we talked about marriage and the future together and now he is having second thoughts! We are currently at a crossroad, we have to decide to break-up or God is going to have to move mountains and restore & rebuild our relationship! I have waited so long for the right man and I had peace that he was "the one" for me! I'm at a loss and don't know what to do anymore! I want God's will for my future and for my marriage so please pray for God's will to be done! Thank you! :)

My daughter and son are about to go into high school. I pray for them that you would surround them with godly friends. That there would be a hedge of protection around them, keep them safe from the enemy. I pray that they would be a light to others. That the seeds planted in them would grow like those planted in rich soil and bear much fruit. I pray for their purity. I pray for their future mates purity. I pray for there future godly husband and wive, as well as future children.I pray for their dreams that you have knitted in their hearts that you would give them hind legs to go to the high places you have prepared for them. I pray for them to be successful in your purposes and to bless abundantly so they can do your work and bless others. I pray that they would have hearts of compassion, but be as innocent as dove and as wise as serpent. Thank you for blessing me with such beautiful children. Heal them of any wounds of mind, spirit and body. They are shy, but give them boldness to lead many to your kingdom. Let them be like Moses, shy but transformed by you to speak and lead people out of the wilderness. Give me the strength and wisdom to train them in your ways so they shall not turn from it.

I just mentor I pray she helps me! I have been praying for harvest workers to do the Lord's work. I pray for God to bring people to help me and give me the strength, wisdom and discernment I need to walk in my purposes. I am a leader and sometimes it gets so lonely, because are always looking to me and I know I have the Lord, but I am lonely like Adam and pray for help mate, that God sees is good.

My husband is working for a great company and wants to stay. He needs to move out of his current position in the next few months. We are trusting God that the position that seems to be a great fit would be accepted for budgeting. We are praying for God to move mountains. Please pray with us as we trust and wait on God to teach us how to become better with what God has given us! I pray that we could humbly excell to glority God. My prayer is that my husband excells in his strengths as a man of GOd seeking his heart and obeying him in every area with humility. Thank you for your prayers!!!
