Please pray for O'Donoghue. He needs salvation and healing from sickle cell anemia. It's gotten really bad. He's only in his 30's, and I'm scared it's going to kill him. Please ask God to heal him and let him live a long time so he can live a full live. He also needs salvation. Please ask God to save both his life, and his soul. Thank you.

Bold as a Lion TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion." (Proverbs 28:1, NKJV) TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria As a believer in Jesus Christ, you are called to live a bold, confident and overcoming life. You don't have to live under the weight and pressure of fear. You don't have to live with daily anxiety. Because of Jesus, fear, worry and uncertainty are beneath you. When you rise up in faith, knowing that God is with you and for you, all doubt and fear has to leave your life. Notice that today's scripture says that the righteous are as bold as a lion. Righteousness is God's way of doing things. When you do things His way, when you are submitted to His plan for your life, He will empower you with boldness and strength. He will equip you to walk in His victory. Today, if you've been feeling anxious or fearful, begin to declare God's truth over your life which will set you free! Declare that you are righteous in Christ Jesus. Declare that you are more than a conqueror. Declare that you are as bold as a lion because you are a child of the Most High God! A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for setting me free from a spirit of fear. Thank You for filling me with strength and boldness. I set aside thoughts of worry and dread and thank You for Your peace as I keep my mind fixed on You in Jesus' name. Amen.

I would just like to thank Life965FM for the work that they do. It is so uplifting to listen to the stories and music on your station every day. I would like to share my story. I have used the Prayer Works site a few times and it is just amazing to see that people you don't know Praying for you. Not all my Prayers have been answered but God is working on it. My girlfriend is still searching for a job in SF but the strength and Faith and uplifting i have gotten from seeing that people are Praying for me and her is so encourging. Prayer Works really works and it is just one of the many Amazing things i Love about this Station. Thank you everyone who Prayed for us.

So I told you about how only one friend knows that I'm depressed. Well I told my closest friend. She acts like I can just snap in and out of it and she thinks I'm weak for my Dna makeup. I also told my parents. I'm now and attention wanting b-*!&. I feel even worse about my self and its literally all I can do to hang on now. Bullying is horrible now and I blame my self for everything even some things that aren't myself. I'm struggling in my faith and my Identity. I guess I pucker out when God was giving out good things to have like love and integrity. Life is worse and I feel more dead than alive. I understand plenty now. God hates me and hes punishing me.

These past few months I have asked for prayer in hopes of receiving a CNA job. The Lord graciously granted my request. However, I was extremely unhappy with the duties of the job and it was affecting my emotional health as I wasn't sleeping at night. I decided to quit the CNA job because I felt the Lord was dealing with me and wanted something better for me. After searching and praying about my future career, the Lord placed it on my heart to finish my medical assisting degree. I am now back in school and have such a calm feeling about my future because I know the Lord lead me down this path. The Lord has been so good to me and I will always listen and let Him lead.

Ryan an Iraq Vet was facing being homeless and jobless by the end of February if God didn't come through for him. He is still looking for full time employment, but has decided to return to school full time to get a degree. He is also going to finish training for the Reserves that he just re-enlisted with. He was able to keep his apartment. Your prayers and our God are so good! Thank you.
March 15, 2013
In the fall, I asked for prayers that my husband and I would be able to have children. We will welcome our first child this fall. We feel so blessed that it was God's will for us to be parents. We are so very thankful for all the prayers and the encouragement. Babies are true gifts from God and we over joyed at the news. Good Bless..

I had submitted a prayer request regarding a tough decision I was making about whether to change jobs. I enjoyed many aspects of my former job, but it required quite a bit of travel, which was stressful for me and my family. I was looking at an opportunity with little to no travel, although the compensation and benefits structure was different. However, after a lot of prayer - and I'm convinced that all of the prayers I received here helped, too - I made the decision to take the new job, and it has been a very positive change for me. There are still adjustments to make at home and with finances, but in the long run, I know in my heart this was the right thing to do....and I believe there's a reason why this new opportunity was presented to me. Thank you for the prayers!
March 13, 2013
In early February I asked for prayer for my Faith to be strong, my bondage of addiction to be broken! I want to thank each and everyone of the people that prayed for me. I am now 7 days clean, my faith is being restored a little more everyday! All the praise and glory go to God our Father in Heaven! God answers prayer in His timing and the best thing is I have an amazing Testimony to the Greatness and Love of God!!!! I know I will be in recovery the rest of my life but I am confident God will walk that Journey with me one day at a time!

I was able to be in Florida and see my grandson when he was 7 hours old. Thank you, God!
March 11, 2013
God is testing our love, obedience, trust and faith through this very challenging time. But we trust His love and know He has a plan. No matter how hard this is on us, we remain faithful and humble. May I ask you please join us in our prayers for food, to be able to pay rent and our utilities? Been trying to find employment for several months but God has not yet opened the right door. Please pray I find the right job where His glory will shine and for protection over our family during this extreme hardship. Please God hear our prayers and love, guide and protect us.
March 10, 2013
Weeks ago I asked for healing prayers for JP. Our Lord's will was done, not our earthly wishes. Jesus took JP by the hand and led him home on February 16th. He is greatly missed, but we know that he is truly free now. Please continue to pray for his mom, dad, brother and sister.
March 10, 2013
Here is my original post and i will follow it with an update. My family is going thru a situation right now that is no longer in our control its all in God's hands. Please pray that whatever the outcome is that God will provide our needs in his way. The update is this, God has faithfully been providing our needs but at the end of May we have no more money, we are praying that the money we are waiting for shows up in time to let us keep our house, God is good and we trust him no matter what the outcome is. Waiting is the hardest part. Thank you all who have been praying for us.

He's out of jail, did not lose his job ( not final yet). He is still cheating on his wife and two children. It pains my heart to see this happen. Please continue to pray for this family.

March 09, 2013
Thank you my Christian family for praying for us, My husband is less stressed ( still working 6:30 am to 8:00pm every M-F, 8:00-3:00pm Sat. 12:00-3:00pm on Sun. ( some paid & some not) God is Good, My mom (59) is in a wonderful relationship now after loosing her husband to alchohol and suicide, Sept. 2001. She has has her battles but she found Christ again and all is GOOD. I lost my Job and I feel really blessed, I feel Jesus right here and I am going to ge ok, I wish all could feel this , I pray any person going through a bad, sad, rough, nagative time in there lives. PLease raise your hands up and talk to him, tell him what you really feel ( from your heart,,,,,not your gut)! He'll listen, the answer will come, remember, you may not like were he leads you, BUT if it's God your following, ALL will be ok, Just trust............I'm speaking from experiance, Amen. I have a request, plz pray my brother will find a way in life, he works with oil and car films, and he's done this for 5 years now. It's giving him headaches. He stays for the pay and it's familiar to him. ***** 1 Chronicles 16:11; Matthew 6:33******* Save your best striving for seeking My Face. I am constantly communication with you. To find Me and hear My voice, you must seek Me above all else. Anything that you desire more than Me becomes an Idol. When you are determined to get your own way, you blot Me out of your consciousness. Instead of single mindedly pursuing some goal, talk with Me about it. Let the Light of My Presence shine on the pursuit, so that you can see it from My perspective. If the goal fits into My plans for you, I will help you reach it. If it is contrary to My will for you, I will gradually change the desire of your heart. Seek Me first and foremost; then the rest of your life will fall into place, piece by piece. ******

Thank all of you for your prayers for my dad Morley, he made it out of surgery well. Thank you again Al
March 05, 2013
In January I asked for prayers for my child (and entire family), as my son has been ill since September and no one could seem to figure out what was wrong with him. A month ago he had some tests and procedures done in the hospital and we finally got some answers. He is now on appropriate medication and we have been able to make necessary diet changes. He is finally back to the happy, fun, carefree baby he was prior to falling ill. In addition, he is finally starting to gain weight and make movement towards talking. This has been a tremendous relief to us and his sister. We know that the answers came as a result of all the prayers. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers that helped us through this difficult time.
March 04, 2013
Thank you to everyone who prayed for the hospital to be merciful with my non-covered knee surgery last August. I am saddened to say that they were not gracious and made no adjustments to the over $15,000 in costs. Please pray for me to be strong for my family. I am very discouraged with my inability to provide for them while paying off this debt.
March 04, 2013
Over a year ago I posted prayer requests for our 14 year old grandson Kade. He was given the gift of life on Thursday.! He had 3 previous heart surgeries' the first one being at 8 days old. Before he went into surgery , he asked us to pray for the family who gave him the heart. Even tho I haven't asked for prayer lately on prayer works, , I have been receiving notices that we have been prayed for. He has a long road ahead but God has blessed our family beyond our wildest dreams! God bless the donors family who we pray for very moment we see him..I pray the donars family knows their loved ones heart is perfect and Kade will be able to thank him when they meet in heaven someday. To all you prayer warriors- THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU.

2 months ago my sister asked for prayer for me and my family. We were adopting and had been chosen by a birthmom. When the baby was born, she decided to parent. Our hearts were torn. I was so proud of her for being willing to make the necessary sacrifices to parent this beautiful child, but I already loved this child like she was my own. The email notices that someone was praying for us were awesome! Then again, my sister asked for prayers for our family as we were were getting impatient with the adoption process. Again, we are so grateful for every prayer lifted up on our behalf. Last Friday we found out that we were matched with a birthmom in North Carolina. Yesterday we found out that it's a little girl. We are anxiously awaiting the OK for us to travel to go pick her up. One thing that was constant through this entire process is that God is, was, and forever will be Good! There's no unanswered prayer. Some are answered with a "no", a "not yet", or an "I have a better idea", but they're all answered. Thank you so much for the prayers!
February 27, 2013
I recently posted a prayer request for my family to remain faithful to what God was asking us to do, for me to quit my full time job and walk away from the insurance and be a stay at home. I am humbled to say that I did, I left my full time job and now stay at home with my son. Thank you so much for praying and I am truly blessed to be given this opportunity.

I wish to Thank everyone for Praying for Syliva ,she is now home and has been on bed on bed rest as there are more than a few blood clots. The Dr put a filter in her vein in her groin to keep the clots from going into her heart and or brain. Other than that she seems to be in good spirits and wishes to thank everyone who has prayed for her. As she said "without prayer it could well be a different ending. So it is with grateful heart, I thank each and everyone for all of your kind prayers. May God richly Bless all of you faithful servants of the Lord. Again thank you. Will post more as things porgress.
February 20, 2013
I had posted a prayer request on this site in December, 2011, asking for prayer for my four year old son who had just been diagnosed with leukemia. God did not answer our prayers the way we had hoped, but he has done amazing things to show His love for us. It's been almost a year now since my son has gone Home, and I occasionally get an email that someone has just prayed for us. It is such a blessing after all this time to see God's people still caring for us. Thank you.
February 20, 2013
Thank you all who prayed for my marriage and my wife. She was healed from her liflong struggle with depression, and now our marriage is as strong as it ever has been. Thanks again!
February 18, 2013
My daughter had a restraining order put on her by her boyfriend because a 3rd person said he should do that. That has now been removed. Thank you all for your prayers with that. The only issue they have going on now is that there is still a 3rd person who keeps trying to tear them apart. All the fights and misunderstanding they have is due to her, this 3rd person. Please pray that her boyfriend is able to see the problems the 3rd person is causing, to beleive what my daughter tells him is the truth, and to move back to our home where we can help him much better. Help him to see that the 3rd person is just trying to ruin their lives just to be vindictive and spiteful. Satan must live in her heart. Also pray for my daughter to continue to have patience and understanding because she is almost ready to give up on him. If she does, he will have no one because the 3rd person will think she has won and will just walk away from him leaving him alone as she has done this to people before. We see prayers are being answered, but there is still a long road to go. Thanks in advance for any prayers you can give.
February 16, 2013
God answers prayers, thanks for all the prayer support. After a year of temporary custody, my son now has full physical custody of his beautiful 2 yr old daughter. His now ex-wife left the courtroom screaming threats and obscenities and has called by phone a few times while drunk, but has not even asked for the supervised visits she was awarded. Please continue to pray for my son and his daughter and also for his ex-wife, that she may someday have the ability to be a positive part of her daughter's life, but until then - stop harassment. My son is now able to begin recovery from the abuse he suffered. The Lord blessed him with with wonderful loving parenting skills and a beautiful reason to move forward in life.

Always remember that God knows what we need even more than we do. He knows more than we could ever even imagine. My daughter has been struggling with her self esteem her whole life and had gotten on the wrong path. The last year has been very hard. I have tried so hard to direct her back to the right way, but she just would fight me even more. When I finally hit rock bottom, I accepted that GOD knows all and is the only one who can heal her. I did something very scary as a parent, but it is the best thing I have ever done. I told God that I realize that HE is in control and knows what she needs even more than I do and that HE wants her back with Him even more that I do---AND I JUST LET GO..... Since that time, we have seen some remarkable changes in her life. Thank you to the Lord that He helped me realize that I am NOT in charge. Thank you for helping me abandon my self and my CHILD to HIM. And thank you all for the prayers from Prayerworks for my child. You don't know how much they lifted me up. I know we can still have some backpedaling, but I feel God has put her in a position to handle these challenges the RIGHT way now. And as a postscript to a very long post, just know how much your random acts of kindness can influence someone. She called me today almost in tears because she was so touched. She went through the McDonalds drive through and the person ahead of her paid for her food. Something so small but it made such a difference to HER! SO thank you all and all the glory to our awesome GOD!!!
February 13, 2013
An amazing thing happened today! I have a very good friend who visited with my daughter-in-law today, that, along with all the prayers that have been given on her behalf, she has made remarkable improvement. She has gone from the deepest pit to being able to see the light again. The change is remarkable! Only through prayer and the grace of God could this have happened! Thanks for the prayers!
February 13, 2013
My son and daughter-in-law have been married for one year. She is still in school and 2 weeks ago she became very anxious and is having difficulty with decision making and coping with stress. She has put her schooling on hold as of right now and this has been very difficult for our family. Please pray that she finds peace and that she begins to sleep better since this has also been an issue. We know God has a bigger plan but the journey has been a difficult one. Please pray for God's will to be done! Thanks!
February 12, 2013
I was able to travel for my grandson's birth! It was a special time for me to spend with my daughter, son-in-law and new baby. Thank you for the prayers!
February 02, 2013
I have learned over the past year that God had a different plan for me, through the encounters with that individual. Things didn't go as I had planned, but it was God's plan. Since last year, I have come out of my shell more and I am more willing to talk to people, even those whom I don't know. Also, I learned that just praying for someone may be the only thing God needs you to do, as was the case in my situation. I find myself wondering how many other people God has placed in my life as a signal to pray for them. Thanks for the prayers!
January 27, 2013
I have asked for prayers for my mother who had a severe UTI infection last spring. Thank you for everyone who prayed for her. She was able to recover from that.

Thank you each and everyone of you who has prayed for her health and Thank you 96.5 for this great website.

I will keep you posted. Thank you all and thank you 96.5!

I originally posted a prayer request for my friend who lost his dad and was struggling with depression. It was cool to see God working in his life through his family and friends. The power of God and prayer is just amazing. He has since recovered from his depression and is doing well at college. Thanks for all your payers.
January 14, 2013
I previously posted about a broken relationship and afraid to lose connection with one of my ex's family members. Well, lately we've had some time we could spend together--enjoying each other, but more importantly worshipping, studying God's Word, and spending hours in prayer. Help me praise God that we are neither too immature to stop our friendship. This person is a HUGE influence in my faith walk with God. Please pray for them and their family. God is so good---pray I am able to keep my eyes open to the GOOD He is working in my life even when some things fall apart. And help me pray to trust in His timing and plan--that through the chaos I see--it's working our just perfectly for His plan. Praise The Lord and bless my friend. Amen amen amen!!!

Thank you to the people who have been praying for a resolution to my hospital bills following my knee surgery. The physicians have showed great kindness by decreasing there bills and fees. Continued prayer is still needed, as the hospital is still wanting all their money or a payment that I cannot afford. Please pray that the hospital would have compassion on my situation, and reduce their fees. Thank you so very much.
December 27, 2012
I put my prayer request on, and I talked to my friend. She told me.. "I don't know what your doing, but its working. I have way more confidence, and things just seem better! Thanks so much and keep praying!!

Biopsies came back non-cancerous. We got approval for a townhouse, just have some paperwork with SF Housing to finish and an inspection. Hope to move in next week. Definitely want to be in by Christmas. A home for Christmas would be wonderful. An end to our homelessness. Yes!! Break up with the ex has brought us to friendship basis mostly. He is trying to push it by wanting things I don't want to do as a Christian woman. He has relapsed in his recovery on finding out his friend took his life last weekend. I feel the best thing for me and my children is to keep him away. Prayers for the strength to not let him use my feelings to suck us back in. I see now he has some more work to do in his recovery and mindset. I want a Godly man who is willing to be a husband to me and father to my children. A man who wants to guide us, protect us, provide for us, but most importantly unconditionally love us. I am still seeking a job. Need something before mid-Jan or I lose the housing assistance. Pray the right job comes along. God knows all the details. Prayers for family members who know Jesus but don't seek him. They are so hurtful and mean. I pray He puts many other Christians in their path to show them the way. The truth. Life. Thank you so much for your prayers.
December 13, 2012
About 3 months ago I wrote a couple prayers about my 22 year old son who had been a lost sheep and seemed to be found. Following that, many prayed. Thank you for that. he was good for a little while. However, no long after he became suicidal and depression seemed to worsen. Luckily he continued to talk to me and take my advice. He began listening to this station. He is a college student and found a very similar station in his area. I sent in another prayer that he take a step to get professional counseling, and people....he did! There were ups and down in the road, things seemed to get worse but were blessings in disquice and in a realitvely short time his life really did turn around. It's been 3 months now and every night when I talk to him it reinforces that he is still on the right track. I cannot tell you how grateful and how much hope it gave me and still gives me to know that anytime day or night I can write a prayer on this network and have complete strangers prayer for me/us. God bless you all. and Thank you to all who contribute to Life 96.5 to keep this radio station available to change lives.
December 13, 2012
Thank you for your prayers.I safely arrived in Chicago. God bless you all....

Biopsies came back non-cancerous!!! Praise God. Go back in 6 months. Still need prayer on a home, application process is taking awhile. Really want to be in our own home before Christmas. Also, waiting for answer on the right job. Applying for everything that comes close to my experience. And well, waiting on answer on the ex. Do we try to go forward or just end it. God can do anything. All things are possible through Him. I give it all to Him. He knows me, my heart, my struggle, my desire for our own home, to not be homeless. Thank you for praying my twinnies and I. I hope I can come back here soon with another praise report. He's going through them, one by one :-D Oh and also pray we find free or real cheap furnishings once we do get a place. Thank you

About a year ago I asked for prayer for Rod who was in an terrible car accident. Those prayers have been answered. He is was in a life/death situation and his family wasn't sure if he would make it. It has been a long road but through prayer, rehab, and many surgeries, good medical doctors and nurses he is on his way back to a normal life. Please continue to pray for him, his wife and young son as they move forward. He also continues to need plastic surgery for his head and and healing for that. This is truly a miracle in the making but he has had so many people praying for him!
November 24, 2012
I want to thank everyone for their prayer. I thought I had updated this to let you all know my husband kept his job. That was about a year ago now. 4 weeks ago he DID lose his job. It is called 'displacement'. We believe this is a blessing in disguise and trusting that God has something BETTER in store for us. He hopes to find something by Jan 1st. His mother is actively dying now, and will meet with Hospice this week. My husband and son also had their identities stolen, by a temp worker in Mass, at a bank we got a loan from. Please pray for us-we've been a bit overwhelmed. We know God is good, and has a plan in all this, but appreciate any prayer support We are so grateful for this site and for Christians who will actively pray
November 23, 2012

I had asked for prayer concerning a grandchild being born so far away. With unexpected funds I was able to visit them recently and I thank God for that and the prayers that went before me.
November 07, 2012
A couple months ago I asked for prayers for our son who has been having medical testing done since August. It seemed like each result lead to more questions, and ultimately, a hospital in Minneapolis for answers. What we have found out is that he has a cancerous tumor on his pituitary gland. He will be having surgery on Tuesday and then chemotherapy starts. It's hard to face this reality every day, but for now we look to the near future, sometimes the moment we are in right now. God has our moments right now, and our eternity in His hands and we trust Him.
October 30, 2012
Got a call today from a program that helps homeless families get on the housing list and also helps manage the finances, parenting, and whatever else a family needs to make it.

I want to say thank you to Life 96.5 for continuing to play such uplifting music. Sadly my wife did pass away in December of 2011. Another heartbreak is that my mother passed away in August of 2012. I am saddened by the deaths of the 2 most important women in my life. I have been searching for strength to get through these next few months. I know that my family wants to get together for Thanksgiving. It will be nice to be with family but at the same we all hurting from the losses in the past year. I cry every day for my wife. She was my rock and planner for the things that we wanted to do. My church has been a support to me. I have people to talk to which also helps but it is just not the same as talking to your wife. I have had happy moments. My daughter is engaged to a wonderful man. That is an exciting part in our lives. I just pray to God for strength through the holiday season and beyond.

I cannot thank you enough for the prayers. I requested prayers for a friend who is had a hysterectomy and found out that she had cancer the beginning of the month. She was able to get into a specialist in Omaha a few weeks after her hysterectomy. She already has a treatment plan for her cancer and the outcome looks promising. She is in good spirits and she is very thankful also for the prayers. Keep them coming as this hard road has not ended for her.
October 23, 2012
So many of you have prayed for my Auntie's ill-health. She is back in the hospital, so again I'm asking for prayers. And I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the prayers that have been said on her behalf. She is precious to me and it means the world to me. Blessings!
October 09, 2012
THANK YOU to those who prayed and sent notes regarding this student teacher...they were forwarded on to her and were such a tremendous encouragement. Things have improved, but she still needs prayer as some students are just determined to be difficult. But her prayer is with the Lord's help to make a difference in these HS kids' lives. Please continue to pray as she is questioning becoming a teacher. Thanks and God Bless!
September 26, 2012
I want to thank everyone that responded in prayers for my friends. It really did help. Julie and Brian have improved greatly. They are recovering from the West Nile virus. They both are tired but no longer have the fever. Marlin has been in the hospital and is now in a wheel chair. Let's continue to pray that God will bless him and that he gets his strength back and help him to walk again.
September 16, 2012
It has been 3 months now since my surgery and thing have turned out just as expected. I will be having a hearing test soon and I am anxious to see the improvement charts. Thanks for all the prayers!!!
September 15, 2012

September 12, 2012
Thank you for your prayers for our daughter. She is moving into our basement this Saturday. She will be coming from Billings, MT. I would ask prayer for her safety as she loads a U-haul and drives here to Sioux Falls as her dad and I are not able to go there to help her pack and drive the distance. Also I ask prayer for the transition from living on her own to living at home. We are glad for here to be closer to home but knos there are a lot of changes for her as well as us. I'm not sure if her job transfer is complete or not.
September 04, 2012
Thank you for all the prayers I have received. I just wanted to update you and let you know that I am now 7 months Pregnant and all is going well. It warms my heart every time i see that someone has prayed for me. I pray that all of you may be blessed as I have been. Thank you
September 04, 2012
thank you for praying for my 95 yr old mother. She fell the third time and after the third surgery her heart started failing. She was put in hospice care and she died a month later. Prayers for the family to help heal through the grief will be appreciated.
September 03, 2012
You all have been praying for me for several months. Right now, I have an application in for a nursing home in the area. Even though it isn't what I exactly wanted, I guess that God had other plans. I haven't worked in a nursing home or hospital in many years. I am willing to work nights and I feel that I would be able to do that work. I am still believing for some kind of hospital job where I can work floor work. I also would love to have a travel nursing job. I sometimes am not sure what the Lord has in store for me but I am being obedient and continue to apply where I can. I also applied for a Home Care Job on line and haven't heard anything. This place has openings for private duty nursing positions. I am just being patient and waiting on what He will want me to do. I still would appreciate the prayers. Thank you.
September 03, 2012
Thank you all for your prayers for my dad whose medical tests turned out favorable. We are all so grateful for your prayers. Praise the Lord!
August 31, 2012
My Godson is at Graduate School and the Professor he will be studying under is a christian. Praise the Lord He is good and His plans are much better than anything I could think of!!!
August 30, 2012
Thank you to everyone who prayed for my daughter (and I)She is doing well and started college recently. And as for me I'am feeling closer to God than ever. So thank you very much and God Bless You!!!!!!
August 29, 2012
Thank you so much for your prayers, my anxiety is lessening and my sister had a good health report. I truly appreciate your prayers. I know God is watching over all of us and am trusting His wisdom.
August 28, 2012
A few months ago, I asked for prayer to feel the pull of God if it was in His will for me to enter into ministry; all the while, I actively had conversations at my university with my anti-theistic friends and had been slowly developing an insatiable passion for apologetic work. One day I suddenly realized that the passion for sharing the gospel to unbelievers is what God has called me to do. Sometimes it takes a few moments of quiet consideration to truly hear God's voice and to trace the path that He has led you down. I am truly grateful for all of the prayer, and can only ask for more that I might be able to utilize my passion and talent at my university and throughout my life.
August 23, 2012
Thank you so much for the prayers that were lifted up on behalf of my daughter. God has provided a job for her. It is so uplifting when I would receive a notice that someone prayed for her, that strangers would take the time to pray.I so appreciate that we can pray for others also.Thanks and God Bless!
August 23, 2012
I put in a prayer that my wife would get some customers at her new job and praise God 24 hrs later and 10 prayers later she got her first. Thank you do much for your prayers and also for 96.5 for having this tool for us to help put fellow Christians. PRAISE THE LORD!!!
August 19, 2012
My 95 yr old mother died August 2nd. Surgery and healing for my neice with the throid cancer went well. Now she has one more treatment for the cancer. Prayers for that to go well and total remission of cancer is appreciated.
August 16, 2012
Please pray for me , I have lost the love of my life. I really care for her and miss her . I can't stop thinking about her. I would like to be angry but she has been through so much and that would be wrong. If anyone one could refer a counselor that would be great this has totally devastated me.
August 15, 2012
My daughter has decided to move from Billings to Sioux Falls to take some of the finacial pressures off. She has been boring friends cars since her's broke down. I would ask for prayers that all the arrangements can be made by Labor Day weekend. My husband, son, and I will be making the 800 mile trip to move her belongings here and want her to come with us. She has to get a transfer for her main job, quit her second job and work out the details with her landlord. Please pray that we will be intune with God's timing as He controls everything.
August 14, 2012
I have to say a big thank you to all who prayed for me & my friend since my post on Sunday about my past trials & the upcoming court hearing for my friend. It was uplifting today when we attended the court hearing for my friend. Good news is that a close friend showed up to support us which was very appreciated & I am proud to say that my friend gets to retain legal custody of his children at this time. Even though they are still placed in foster care & that he has to follow thru with the recommendations the DHS asked previously. But a negative is that my friend was told that I wasnt allowed to attend any visits with him due to the recommendations that they felt I was an unsuitable person. But hopefully with the help of GOD & his lawyer they find it in their heart to grant me the chance to prove myself worthy of being able to attend the visits. I know I messed up in my past but am hoping that everyone sees it fit to grant me another chance in my life as well. Please keep the prayers coming our way so that things can work out for us in that area as well. I thank everyone for all the prayers they have sent. THANK YOU
August 14, 2012
A couple of weeks ago I posted a prayer request because my Dad while on vacation in NH had gone out for a walk and not returned to the rental cottage. The NH State Police and the NH Fish and Game launched a massive 5 day search for my Dad. When it was scaled back they still had no clues. My family made the sad journey back to their home in NC without knowing where my Dad was or even if he was still alive. The search continued in various forms and the Lt. in charge kept in close contact with my Mom. I got so many notes saying that " Someone Prayed For You", the story was shared friend to friend, church to church on social media, regualr media and by word of mouth. We felt comforted and loved but felt as if my Dad was lost forever. 18 Days after he went on that walk he was picked up by a sheriff in Western NC. He did not know who he was but he did know the initials and date inside his wedding ring. The sheriff office used that data to find him in the Missing Person's Data Base. At 3:30 am the NH State Police called my mom in Central NC with the news that my Dad was safe in the Western part of NC. My Mom and sister drove to pick him up. He recognized the car and my mom right away! He is beginning to regain his memory bit by bit. He walked and hitchhiked over 1000 miles, over 18 days, working odd jobs to get to NC because he thought he might know someone there! We are so appreciative of all the support and prayers we have received and so thankful to God that we have him back!
August 13, 2012
ANSWERED PRAYER: I got the images back today and praise God for that. I had been too attached to getting them and perhaps even feeling like I would not get them but I did today and he left me a note saying sorry for the wait and he has been communicating with me and my other friends and other people have been leaving me very respectful and nice comments. Please continue to pray with me that on Thursday I do very well at my catwalk show in Jesus almighty name. Please pray I am respected, love and cared for and noticed by everyone that I want to notice me and the right people who love and care for me are in my life. Please pray that every one communicates with me and bothers with me and I feel very good about it. Please continue to pray my page gets a lot more likes and that I have a very impressive high fashion portfolio and get more and more experience in my job but praise God I have the confidence to pose without direction and have been doing well and getting support from many people in my career. Praise God for his big helping hand in my career. I ask for help for me to have the full on confidence that I will make it big and the agencies will take me on and then they do take me on. Please pray for me that very soon the Lord will have me signed to an agency and making enough money to live on and support my self and become a very successful model. Thank you! and thank you Father God for all your help. Amen.
August 12, 2012

August 09, 2012
Five months ago I lost my beautiful baby girl. There were complications and she lived for only two days before we had to say goodbye. Not even a week after she passed, the school I was working at downsized and I was one of the teachers cut. Ever since then I feel like my life is stuck. I have had interviews but have not found another teaching job yet. I am asking if you have a moment, to please pray for me to have strength. I need strength to continue living without my daughter and strength to continue looking for a teaching job. I would greatly appreciate it. God has a plan, I just need some help to understand it.
August 08, 2012
I had never used PrayerWorks until about 2 weeks ago. I posted two prayer requests in a period of 3 days. God is so faithful! I have received numerous notices of prayers and both prayer requests were answered in a positive way! Thank you to everyone on this site and all who pray for even one request...your prayers do matter and the One we serve listens. Bless you!

I am 21 yrs old, work for a park and we mow soccer fields and my fellow employee who is a good friend of mine from work who is in his late 70's got a call one morning that his sister was dying in the hospital. I never seen an old timer cry so hard it made me tear up. He left work to be with his sister. I drove my mower on the trail and remembered that 96.5 music is amazing and my mom always wanted us kids to listen all the time. That day the sun was not supposed to be out at all...I said a prayer for this older gentleman's sister and listened to Life 96.5 for help and guidance. The song "Light up the sky" came on and the lyric.."Light light light up the sky light up the sky" came on and the sky showed through sunlight for 15 sec and no more sunlight was seen the rest of the day. I knew God answered my prayer to all that mans sister to live a month or so longer as God desires and the mans sister passed away 3 months later. God is GOOD!
August 02, 2012
I am overwhelmed with the outpouring of prayers that we have recieved!! My situtation was about whether to go back into the medical field or to take a much less paying job at our school nearby. I was offered the job at the school and I accepted. I feel very good about this decision and I know that God opened the door! I just ask for continued prayer for my husband that either work picks up by leaps and bounds or that some other door opens for him to look into another business opportunity. We can't go through another winter like the last two!! We can't afford it!! Thank you all again, we are so blessed!!
July 27, 2012
Praise the Lord!!! He opened the door to a good job for my friend! I also, want to thank you for praying for my best friend, who needed to find a new job, because she & her husband relocated. My friend had an interview this morning, and she was offered the job!!!! She starts in August! Thanks so, much for your prayer support!
July 27, 2012
My daughter delivered may 24th. Mom and baby were great. She doing great with her new son. They now are renting a house, which gives them a lot more room. Praise God for a safe delivery and a healthy baby boy. Also for their new living condition. It in its self was a Gid thing. Thanks to all who prayed for her. It was great to get emails that strangers were praying for her!!!
July 24, 2012
I had posted on Life's webiste requesting prayer that our farm be sold. God answered that prayer and led the neighbor across the street (we only have two neighbors) to purchase our home. Thank you for all of those who prayered! We are excited that Life 96.5 is our new station to listen to as we move from the rural Twin Cities area to even more rural southwestern Minnesota!
July 20, 2012
Thank you for the prayers of finding a new (used) car before school starts. We found one, with almost everything that was on the long list of expectations. Thank you again.
July 13, 2012
THANK YOU all who have prayed for my daughter and her many diseases- In June I took my daughter to a prayer/deliverance pastor who prayed for her healing, and so many symptoms were healed: visual problems connected to migraines - they are gone (black spots, weird lights, wavy lines in vision). THE MIGRAINES THEMSELVES are gone (they used to happen a few times a week!) A limp that she had because of crooked hips and a shorter leg, disappeared. Much chronic pain left - the whole right side of her body was ALWAYS in pain, but not now! Her digestion is the best it has been in years, and also, no more seizures! My daughter has been bed ridden on and off for almost 11 years. ... she seems to be experiencing increasing well being and healing each day...thank you all who prayed. We are amazed -- and praising the Lord. Please praise the Lord with us...if anyone would pray for her spiritual growth, I will thank you in Heaven...please pray that she becomes a student of the Word with a heart for worship...
July 11, 2012

I need prayer to have get throught the divorce process.

It seems like God has been not opening the door for me in local hospital work. I have been doing some travel nursing at a hospital 55 miles away casually. Otherwise I work a small amount of Home Care. So I am just going to have to wait and see what He has in store for me. I guess I continue to need prayer for direction at this time. I have learned a lot of patience through this whole deal. My husband is permanently disabled and his social security disability is not much and we have been living on a settlement that we got when he had a faulty hip cup. But we know that this will not last forever. Also, we have been on our Cobra insurances from our last jobs and this costs us over $1500.00 a month. So a need for direction to go is big now. I would be willing to travel nurse if need be. I am thinking I might have to find something else for now. Thanks for all your prayers so far.
July 07, 2012
Still praying for Harold and Lorraine Niemeyer. They are still doing everything alone. They have a great attitude and adjusting their time and prioritizing. Their health is great. Praise God! I am still believing God ! He gets all the Glory.
June 29, 2012
I want to thank everyone who prayed for my son and family while he was once again in the hospital after getting strep and then having uncontrolled vomiting and then dehydration. This last stay lasted 6 days as he continued to have a fever for several days and then he had his tonsils and addenoids removed. There was concern of possibly havin mono in addition to the strep, but tests showed it was likely another virus that caused the fever. His addenoids looked quite infected and like he never really got over the infection previous times, so it was a good thing to have them removed. He was dismissed feeling much better, but today is not as rambunctious. Struggling with eating and fluids, but know that with everyones prayers, he will be himself within the next week. God has blessed our family beyond words this week. We have had more support than we ever knew we had. All of our prayers have been answered this week with your help. Thank you and god bless each and every one reading this.
June 28, 2012
Thanks so much for all of the prayers, how that lifted me up as i prayed that God would answer our prayers. Our home has sold in South Dakota, we will now be moving to another state in a little over a week, God provided another home to buy, he is working out every, every detail!!! Thanks again to all of the prayer warriors...it makes a huge difference!! It is encouraging as we support one another!! May God Bless You this day!!
June 21, 2012
We were being faced with the dilemma of possibly having to put my Mom in a nursing home. With all of you who have prayed for healing and blessings, prayers are being answered. Thanking all of you from the bottom of my heart and thanking God for hearing our prayers and answering them. And I can't help but believe that maybe, just maybe my Dad had a helping hand in all of this.
June 21, 2012
On June 22 my identical twin nephews will be undergoing surgery for trach's and G-Tubes. They were born 9 weeks early and just reached their gestational birthdays this week. The boys were born with an undiagnosed muscle disorder and while their little lives are so delicate, we have witnessed God performing miracles in so many ways through these precious little boys. My sister and brother-in-law (Mommy & Daddy) have incredibly firm faith in God's plan and timing for everything He has brought to their family, but I know there is a reality of parenting children with disabilities that so many of us take for granted and I am requesting prayers for their entire family. Prayer requests that these 2 sweet little brothers will be able to handle their surgeries and continue to grow and thrive and that my sister and her husband can continue to cling tight to their firm faith and know that their journey through so much suffering and joy is leading so many to turn to Christ in times of trial.
June 21, 2012
W have a family meeting today with the doctor to determine if we can keep Mom in her own home. We don't want to have to put her in a nursing home. We ask and pray for blessings and healing so we as a family can provided care for her at home.
June 13, 2012
Well, I have an interview on June 14th at a hospital about 45 miles from me, which is fine. I also got a call from the travel nursing recruiter and I have 2 shifts this weekend at the hospital I have been picking up 12 hours shifts at as needed since Februiary. The recruiter called back with shifts to fill in July also and I picked up 7 shifts. Please continue to pray for the interview that I am having on Thursday. This hospital would have around 20-30 hours per week which would be a good fit for me. Thank you so much, Prayer warriors. I know of Whom is in control of this situation and you all have been obedient to take it to the foot of the Cross. He is higher than I!!! But please continue to pray that this hospital I am interviewing at likes what they see. Lord, help me to put it all in Your Hands----
June 09, 2012

I had to update everyone on my Mom, who is receiving treatments for her third bout with colon cancer. The prayers are working! She is regaining her strength, and at her last Chemo appointment, the doctor was pleased with her blood work, commenting that he wished he could give some of his other patients her platelets! We are so thrilled! She is regaining her physical strength as well, and when I'm with her in public, it just warms my heart to hear all the people who say they've been praying for her. Thank you ALL for so many wonderful prayers. Keep praying for everyone who struggles with cancer.

A little while ago, I posted a prayer request, about how lonely I was. Well, God is awesome!! He has given me a wonderful job, and many people to interact with everyday. I am feeling great and I'm not lonely anymore. Jesus is my best friend, and having Him in my life is something that I cannot find words to express the way I feel. He has set me free!! I want to give the glory entirely to God, I did nothing and yet He loves me. I am so thankful and wanted to share with everyone how I'm feeling. I feel happy, very happy. This new job is exactly what I wanted and needed, and God heard all of your prayers and answered them. Thank you to all that prayed for me, I pray that God blesses you all with everything you need, spiritually as well as physically. Thank you again and God Bless!!!

April 19, 2012
Thank you for prayers, after multiple acts of violence, my son's wife left with their 13mo child. After 4 weeks not knowing where his precious child was, the protection orders filled with false allegations against me and my son were dropped and my son has had his daughter almost everyday the past 3 weeks for at least a few hours while waiting for temporary custody hearing. This previously active, bright child was traumatized (wringing her hands, silent, still and screamed when she heard anyone say "no") Thank God, she is now back to talking, running, hugging; still reluctant to let daddy out of sight. Hearing is next Thursday. Please pray for my son and his daughter. His wife is a convincing manipulator and continues to make false claims, she has moved out of Children's Inn and will not disclose who she is staying with, (1bedroom apt with some man she recently met, claims she and child sleep in the bed) changes names and stories daily, says is moving to 3bedroom house with fenced yard with another friend she recently met. She is emotionally unstable, violent and I am afraid of her. Pray for her as well
April 18, 2012
THANK YOU to everyone who prayed! and Glory to God! My hubby did NOT lose his job (as expected). He will remain working where he is now. BUT...God opened a few unexpected 'windows' for us. We can't go into detail, but we will continue to pray that God shows us which path to take when it is time:) Praise be to God!
April 08, 2012

April 03, 2012
We had a meeting on March 30th to discuss our Fathers Estate. Our family did hit a big curve/bump in the road. Family relations have been strained at this time but hopefully with continued prayers we can come together to still be able to work thru details. Hopefully God will hear prayers and continue to be with our family as we try to work out our differences.

My husband has been looking for work, and has been doing odd jobs for the last two years. It has been tough for us to keep that faith that God knew what He was doing when jobs kept coming back as no's. A job has come along now, that could not have come any sooner, and it seems to be a perfect fit for my husband. Thank you , thank you, for all the prayers. They have been answered!!
March 21, 2012
I had posted a prayer for significant health care bills to be resolved and for God's guidance. There is a mystery to me in prayer, but know that God works with and through others. Both issues have been resolved and I'm grateful for Life 96.5 and prayers of people I'll never know.
March 21, 2012
My friend from Rapid City with the sick baby are now out of the hospital-they have been for a while-sorry for taking so long to update. Baby is doing well and the parents talk of God is increasing!! Thank you for all of the prayers!
March 18, 2012
Today a good friend of mine, whom I asked for prayers for faith, as they do not believe, told me they said a prayer. They laughed it off like no big deal, but then said, really, I actually did.

My boyfriend and I broke up last night. After almost 4 years, his heart wasn't in it anymore. I've never gone through something so hard, but I know that God will help me get through this. As hard as this is, I know that God has a plan, and it will all work out for the better. I'm glad I finally have answers. Thank you all for your prayers!

Baby Elliot is now 3 1/2 months old. He is moved beyond crying every day all day. It is only by the grace of God and the many prayers raised via this avenue that he moved out of the colic stage. Elliot is gaining weight and doing good. Thank you, everyone, who has prayed for Little E during the past 3 months.

I posted about being diagnosed with placenta previa and complications with our pregnancy. (After having previous miscarriages we were praying for a healthy baby.) We are so thankful to God and the support/prayers from prayer works. Found out today that my placenta moved to where it should be and we have a healthy baby @ 21 weeks. Praise God. It was a comfort to know people were praying for us & our baby. Prayers answered & again all praise & glory to God who answered so many prayers! Thank-you all who have prayed for us. God Bless!

Earlier this month I posted this prayer request: My mom will have a PET scan tomorrow at 1 PM with a physician follow up visit scheduled for Monday. Mom is 85 years old and was diagnosed and treated (chemotherapy) for Stage 3C ovarian cancer in October 2000. She is currently "raising" my 17 year old nephew who chose to remain in his hometown and live with her after his mother (my sister) passed away in October of 2007. His father had passed in March 2004. Please pray against the spirit of anxiety and fear and for God's provision and plan to be clearly evident as we go through these difficult days. Since that time the following has happeded--PET scan showed suspicious nodules in Mom's lungs (non smoker) which had to be biopsied. Radiologist said the nodules were highly suspicious. Report came back as non cancerous. However, Mom will continue monthly tests for possible recurrence of ovarian cancer (has been in remission for 11 years). Still has significant weakness on right side and difficulty walking/has to use a walker. MRI showed a possible small growth on spinal cord. Myelogram scheduled for Friday at 9 am. Please pray for God's peace, direction and divine healing as we continue to work through these health concerns. Mom is fearful of the myelogram. Thank you for your continued prayers. Every time I get an email notification that "someone just prayed for you" I thank God for his faithfulness. May God bless each of you!

I am forever greatful. This one person sent a note to me that changed my life. I was questioning my morals. All of my friends were pressuring me to do it, and my bf was also. But i did not want to at first. Then i was afraid that i would lose their friendship, and i was about to give in. Then this lady talked to me and gave me her email address.....

I have a very good friend who I am concerned is depressed. She just moved away to law school after breaking a loooong relationship with her boyfriend and her friends only care about her if she is out getting drunk. They have no concern about her well wowing except to have fun. Her heart is broken, she is incredibly negative all of a sudden, and she has extreme anxiety. She openly admits she has no faith. To her, she sees all religions as false and unreal. I have a very open faith and try really hard not to hide it around her. I have tried talking to her, but she won't listen. She needs the Lord. She comes from a devout worshipping and loving family. I'm not sure what else to do. Pray with me that God will send someone into her life where she is and lead her to the Lord, as she has no interest of those helping already in her life. open her heart to find the Lord.

Praises to our great merciful God who answered our prayers. Jack lived through a high risk heart surgery and another surgery to put a pacemaker and defibrolater in. He went home. Please continue prayers for the family as they grieve the death of the grandson.
February 17, 2012
Thank you for praying. The Lord granted peace that indeed passes understanding. While there have been difficulties and times of sadness and grieving He has enabled me to continue with my life in spite of the suicide that rocked my world in January. I have felt a strange peace that was not of this world and I am so grateful for it. Thank you for praying. It really makes a difference. It helped me feel supported when I was otherwise very alone. God Bless you all...

After 10 hour neck fusion surgery on Tuesday, 31st - Caleb has a neck brace he will wear from his waist to his neck for 6-12 weeks while his bones fuse. This is uncomfortable and he is still in quite a bit of pain. He is out of ICU and hopes to be able to use their plane tickets to fly back to Charlotte, NC on Tuesday. They have been having meetings with PT & OT who have been helping to make a plan for his return to his home and surroundings. Caleb will likely have to continue PT & OT sessions at least twice a week once he returns home. The prayers of many have been felt and please continue to keep Caleb and his family in prayer for healing, less pain, and to be able to sleep and adjust to the neck brace. God is good.

Dear Prayerworks Community - Today we are on our knees thanking God for his answer to all the prayers given for our son. Thank you, Lord Jesus for giving us negative test results for the genetic tests. Thank you for not allowing that devastating news to be a part of his testimony. Even though he is still dealing with injuries from that crash, he continues to praise YOU! While we know we are not out of the woods because he is not growing properly, we are, in tears thankful that it is not something in his genetic code. Thank you for the people who called to say they were thinking of us, even though they didn't know what was going on. Their love was a tangible reminder of how much more you love us - even as we walk through the storms of life. Thank you to all who prayed!Humbled and awed by your love!!!!

Thank you for all of your prayers over the last few weeks. I have been overcoming my past transgressions and giving everything I come across (mostly my thoughts) to God. I saw the guy once agian today. I was able to aviod him, but my thoughts were that no matter what I want to say to him, he is not worth it. I know that God has someone out there for me, and I will trust that He will bring the one for me to me soon. Thank you agian for all your support.

I have a hard time asking for prayer, because i consider it an honor to pray for others and listen to them with the compassion the Jesus did for me. Yes it is true I do not like to complain. the Bible speaks against it. I have been around people who complain and have a fit and get what they want. I want what God wants for me and my daughter. Ever since the Franklin Graham weekend. 1997. I have been listening to Christian radio and doing good for Jesus. Gal. 3:9, Phil 4:8 . It is a long story . but at this time. I am asking God for a Pastor a help from Him. counsel. Kristina and I need counsel. Prov.11:14 , I need to be right with God. I have gone to church and turned away. we can't help you because you haven't learned anything. on the phone.would not meet with us. I got to go to a James McDonald,Lord change me.He talked about how good it is to have others looking in on you because sometimes it is very good to have friends who will tell you what you need to know.I like that. We have been asking for help. Kristina had a very hard time at school, she needs a good Godly college now. It would break my heart daily to see this happening to her. Pray that I walk in forgiveness daily for those who have harmed us and I have allowed them to blow out my candle. We want to soar with the eagles. A home Proverbs 24:4 . organized.. guest room, entertain angels,kitchen,library, office.etc. my heart longs for a home.. help. Pray that I remain content with what I have. I have fallen into jealousy and envy. not pleasing to Him.Thank you , may God cont. to richly bless you all

I requested prayer for my co-worker's nephew who was in a car accident back in November. Unfortunately the brain damage was too severe and he has gone to be with the Lord.

Work had been very stressful the last few months and Im working harder and harder but in sales nothing is easy. I was finaly to the point where I need to ask myself "is this for me". I wasnt sure what to think, say, or do? So last night I was a local Christian school event and was almost day dreaming when I looked up at a picture (I had never noticed before) of Jesus pointiong his finger and at the bottom it said "trust in the lord". Money right now is very tight and at the even I was handed thank you cards with cash in them for some work I had done. After I left I knew I was in the right place. This moring at work a major client emailed me and wants to work with me and could be a Huge account! You never know but I will keep praying. God is Good All the Time!!!
November 16, 2011

My husband and I just returned from Family Life's Weekend to Remember. We spent the summer separated, but began to reconcile this fall after I turned everything over to God. It took me a while to realize that I couldn't fix it myself, but rather had to hand it over. My husband and I learned a lot at the conference and we are eternally grateful for all of the prayers received. We are well on our way to not only saving our marriage but creating a Godly legacy for our children
November 09, 2011
My friend was touched by the prayers offered on his behalf for his struggling marriage. Today his wife is going to face some tough questions, but your prayers are guiding both him and her to this point. This is a good step for both of them and your continued prayers are so appreciated!

Earlier this year, sometime in April, I submitted a prayer request. Due to me letting a horrible habit get out of control I was under investigation by a detective. Well, I am glad to say that I have finally heard from the detective and he told me that that decided not to press any charges. This has been a incredible answer to prayer. Though, I still to deal with the habit that led me to doing this. Thanks to all those who prayed for me. But, keep me in prayer because I still have to work at getting rid of that habit that led me to this situation.
September 26, 2011
I want to say thank you so much to everyone who has prayed for us......when I get the emails saying someone is praying for us...I feel so humbled...and so blessed!! Although our financial situation and the stress that goes with it hasn't changed.....I do feel a great deal of HOPE for better days to come soon. I thank GOD for such wonderful people who care so much!
September 19, 2011
First all, thank you to all who respond to posted prayers. I've been periodically posting for prayer requests for someone I love (not married to). I've been praying for restoration for us as a couple, but it seems it is not meant to be. Harsh words continue and actions speak louder than words. I would love to hear 'I love you' from him, but don't. It is very difficult to keep praying for him (drinking, passive-aggressive behavior) and yet, I continue to hope God will convict is heart. I ask for all God's warriors to pray for this man. I believe in miracles and I hope for another one! Thank you for sustaining me and giving me hope for another day.
September 13, 2011
I wasn't sure I wanted to forgive him but as the song 70 times 70 was played & I think about the people of Isreal and God's grace it was evident through prayers offered up and God prodding me to forgive - the hard part is now forgetting and making sure that my husbands goes through with the counseling. Thank you for your prayers
September 09, 2011
I posted a couple of weeks ago about my mother having to have repeat surgery on her hip.

August 26, 2011
I posted earlier this month about how my husband and I were struggling to get pregnant after our miscarriage. Many people prayed for us and let's just say, the power of prayer is amazing. We are pregnant. Just found out today so it's very early. I hope that we have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
August 25, 2011
I just want to say Thank you to all of those who posted in response to my prayer for Serenity the other day. I truly know how much the prayers work. My husband came home from work a new man, I know that the alcoholism was what I was hearing that morning, but I also know that your prayers helped open his heart back up and clear his mind enough to know that he needs to work harder at his sobriety. He is working hard and after I posted the message on here and spent some much needed time with the Lord myself I felt a calm come over me also and I was able to see through my cloud of grief & anger to see the man that I love and how sick he is. Please remember all of you who may have an alcoholic in your life, what a terrible family disease this is, but keep praying and relying on positive support to maintain your sanity through it, and also thank you to Al-Anon and my friends there who are helping me through this! Thanks everyone! God Bless all of you!
August 25, 2011
I want to thank everyone who prayed for my dad..his test came back as no cancer! PTL! He does have to have another colonoscopy to see how the tubular has grown and go from there.

August 23, 2011
I posted a request for some prayers for a job and God has answered that prayer! Praise him all! I was in a job where there was no good. People were terrible! The job is not what I was told it would be and I was sick every day I went to work. Well God answered my prayers with a job that I pray will work out for me. It is what I do best run an office the people seem nice and the hours is what I wanted, The money could be better but I do believe there is more to life then the money. It will be the peace I have at this job. The peace of not having to listen to bad people and the peace to know if I work hard I will make this job my own please pray that all goes well I will learn fast and that this will be a great job for me. I still praise Jesus for the blessings I have been given. I eat each night sleep in peace and rise each morning with hope that is life my friends. :Praise Jesus my lord and savior

Caleb still has hurdles ahead of him, and has a very close walk with his Lord. We will be praying him through whatever that will be.
July 20, 2011
This spring I asked for prayers concerning my knees, legs, & losing weight. Slowly (but surely) God is helping me with my weightloss. My legs & knees are going to get better as well. God led me to go to a pediatrician (foot doctor), who prescribed orthopedic shoes for me. The new shoes are making a difference too!
July 16, 2011
Hello all!! I have just been notified that I passed my NCLEX-RN exam. I just want to thank you for ALL the prayers during this past week!! I could not have done it without all of you and God's help!!! I have gotten my sign today that nursing is something that I need to try out...I know everything happens for a reason so there has to be a reason why God wanted me to pass my boards! So I guess I will just have to wait and see what God has planned for me!!! Once again, thank you SOOOO much for all the prayers!!! God Bless you all!!
July 15, 2011

Which David battled not once but twice, once at a very young age and again at the age of 16 where the winner did not walk away with a trophy or a pat on the back, this opponent tried to take David's life but not without a fight, David fought for his life like a true soldier, he put up a fight with leukemia till the last breath was exhaled on 21,2007. For his fight he is known as a HERO to all who loved David or had the pleasure of knowing this incredible beautiful son,brother,nefew,uncle,friend,and athlete.David is known as our SUPERMAN!We are asking for your to support this day and to be apart of a beautiful cause which brings Hope, Family & Faith together for a single day if not a lifetime, to share and embrace this life we are given and not only that but to give support to those who have gone through a loss or a challenge in their own lives.

We want to give this day to kids because that's where it starts. To give them something to believe in something they can see in this life that no matter what God is real and he does exist.

Romans 8-28 David Garcia Story Believe Everything Has a Purpose Gods Love Defeated Cancer David Garcia Day Gods Love Defeats Cancer...

Along with this they proclaimed a day in his honor, in which, is David Garcia Day.We celebrate LIFE, LOVE, HOPE, FAITH AND MOST OF ALL LOVE. Come celebrate in support his legacy. David Garcia Day David's Day will and always will be about family, whether it's family blood or family connected through God.. We all are suffering from the evils of this world...This day is to remind us Jesus loves each and everyone of us non-believers..believers..those lost..those who still need to be found...One day there is no more pain..no more sorrow..we all will get our wings..all it takes is to believe in Our Lord Savior Jesus...Our brother passed away on August 21, 2007 from Acute Leukemia (Cancer). We both had the same cancer but before he passed away the small community of Lake Andes, South Dakota, raised money to donate for him and our families' struggles with the affects of going through something like this. Along with this they proclaimed a day in his honor, which is David Garcia Day. We celebrate LIFE, LOVE, HOPE, FAITH AND MOST OF ALL LOVE. Come celebrate in support of his legacy.. I have been praying and thinking about my brother's day and I had a really good thought. I remember everything that we went through with David. I was there with my mom helping her with David's battle. Not a lot of people are aware of the strength you have to go through in something like that. Not only the battle but also dealing with a broken family and poverty. Through everything we have gone through, we found Jesus on the other side waiting for us and comforting us. God gave David and each of us the strength to go through the storm of what our family and many families go through everyday. We fought one another; at one point we couldn't even stand being in the same room with one another and after David left he took all that pain we had been holding for so long he took that with him because he was our Gift. Our little gift from God. We started to love one another, we started to help one another, we started to just care for each other again. A family trying to find God, a Family trying to stand together. In God's eyes we ALL are a family and we ALL are trying to reach that goal and stand at the right hand of God with our Lord Savior Jesus. This is what David's Day should and will represent - Family, Love, Faith and Hope - because we all are trying to find God and find peace. Through your help we can share this message and help families and those find God. We can share this message to those who been touched by cancer, broken families and who have lost their faith in God. We want to give this day to kids because that's where it starts to give them something to believe in, something they can see in this life, that no matter what God is real and he does exist. These are my thoughts and thank you for everything. God Bless You. I will see you in heaven. My Name is Rafael Garcia I am writing to you to express a concern for a story I hope you might want to help get out. Ive written to many people trying to tell our story but no one has responded or listened. But I am also writing to you on maybe turning this into a family event. I think our story and our brothers story can be great to be included in the Be The Match Foundation. Maybe we can use his day to raise awareness that we do have a positive story especially here in south dakota. Maybe we can get in touch in talk more about this. I am also a cancer survivor and our brother whose name is David Garcia. We are from Lake Andes, South Dakota. My brother passed away on August 21, 2007 from Acute Leukemia (Cancer).We both had the same cancer but before he passed away the small community of Lake Andes, South Dakota raised money to donate for him and our families struggles with the affects of going through something like this. Along with this they proclaimed a day in his honor, in which, is David Garcia Day. We celebrate LIFE, LOVE, HOPE, FAITH AND MOST OF ALL LOVE. I know there our many stories out there just like his. But what makes his story different is he is a Young Native American and from a community based on racial trials. The community came together to help this young boy in his struggle to want to live this life. Sometimes we take this life for granted but they gave him little hope and he gave a lot of people the same thing in return. I will be sending a story my mom wrote on behalf of my brother. Hopefully you or someone could take an interest in our story. Thank You and God Bless YOU... Through all this my mother stood by her son only to end up homeless. Shes been through divorce, poverty, homelessness, to losing her son, brother and her father and her family(divorce) all within the last ten years. As her son it breaks my heart everyday to see my mom struggle everyday. She cant provide for herself because she cant go back to nursing. She has a degree in nursing but cant do that work yet because it reminds her of her son. She helps others more than she ever helps herself. We as a family try to stand together but when you come from poverty it makes it twice as hard. We all believe in Jesus. He keeps us going everyday. I just wish and pray someday someone will listen to our story and help ease our mother's burdens. Or just to listen.... To Whom It May Concern: I needed to write and tell my story because if it's not done, no one will know. No one can tell this story but me. I see signs everyday in Jesus that David truly blessed me and his family. It's just hard to decide what direction I need to go in. I began this story countless times. I pondered over exactly what and how to say things. The one thing that forever stays in my mind is the fact that David's story needed to be told. I am a 54 year old American Indian woman, enrolled in the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe in South Dakota. Some of my accomplishments are as follows: I was a wife for 24 years, I was a single mom of eight children since 1996, I became a Registered Nurse in 1990 and my finest accomplishment is being the school nurse for the Crow Creek Tribal Schools, Stephan, South Dakota for ten years, (1996-2006). The relationships I acquired willl forever stay with me. I feel no greater attainment when being recognized and hugged by the school children I cared for. David Jocko Garcia was born in Yankton, South Dakota on a cold and frigid afternoon February 12, 1991. He was the eighth child that heard my heartbeat, my fifth son. The brother of three sisters, (Tonya, Sissy, Chrissy) and four brothers (Antonio, Rafael, Fernando, Tracy), he would also become the step brother to two more brothers and three sisters. His immediate tiospaye (extended family) would enlarge to ten nephews and two nieces. Challenger, warrior, believer in Jesus, my friend, these are a few words that I use to describe my son, David. I am forever grateful, forever awed by the determination of a young son who was diagnosed with a terrible, awful, ugly disease of Leukemia, which began the fight of a champion. Countless times my son, David, fought the great battle of trying to stay in this world. He was only seven years old on Mother's Day in 1998 when this disease became apparent in our lives once again. Earlier in our life, in 1978 this disease tried to claim one of my older sons, Rafael. In 1979, at the age of 9 months, my son Rafael Lance fought this monster. Now, this is a completely different story, but not to diminish Rafael's battles, this story is about David. Countless times the main question of why two of my sons can have the same disease roamed through the deep dark crevices of my mind? Where was this light to lighten these dark images? What do I do?? Who do I believe in? Why do I feel so alone? Where is my heart? It feels so broken. This happens only in the stories of magazines and books or to other people. Not to me. Statistics of the morbidity of this disease gave us all the uplift in our hearts to know that there was such a gigantic chance that my son David would defeat this disease, such as his brother, whom now is a blessed survivor of 31 years. It never occurred to me that my son would lose one of his battles. I forever just simply believed that this monster would be defeated, such with the knowledge of David's determination and Rafael's history. Rafael was considered CURED in 1989. The belief that David would triumph and beat this disease was always in the utmost corners in my mind. It never occurred to me that David would cease to exist in this world before me, I was taught to believe that parents were the first to leave this world. David endured three years of chemotherapy, after initially reaching "remission", which meant no traces of the leukemia, was evident in his bone marrow. In 2006, when everyone was celebrating Mother's Day, David was being told he relapsed with this awful disease, and the battles began again. He was always the first to say "let's fight this, we did it before, we can do it again". My thoughts, my feelings, my heart believed and never faltered in my support for my son. Another round of chemotherapy and this time we will be trying a bone marrow transplant. Arrangements were made for David's immediate siblings for blood tests to determine if a match could be found to help David. David's sister, Sissy Marie, age 20 was found to be a perfect match. "WooHoo!! We're on our way to Minneapolis, to the University of Minnesota-Fairview, to have a Bone Marrow Transplant" on October 3, 2006. Remarkably, the bone marrow transplant was considered a success, and it was reported by our doctors when it became time to be discharged, David did not experience any marked febrile temperatures, but rather sailed through the time we were hospitalized. Where do I begin with the story of a remarkable young man that wanted to stay in this world where he felt so protected and loved by a family, a huge tiospaye of people and friends that loved David and caused them to think and pray about God and his miracle of life. Many people took the time to pray and think of God when David's name was mentioned. A young man that bridged a humongous gap between cultures that was historically prejudicial in nature in all aspects of life. Remarkably, a small town in eastern South Dakota became united in the effort to help a young American Indian in his battle against a terrible disease. Negative stereotypes about American Indians fostered a hurt between the cultures with numerous conflicts and much misunderstanding. A legacy follows this young man, whom people honored with a special day set aside, to remember his struggles and his extraordinary battles to remain in this life. July 29, 2006 was proclaimed "DAVID GARCIA DAY" in support of David's personal challenge, the city of Lake Andes, South Dakota motivated David by their support and pride for him. When this first day arrived, David was fighting one of his battles, he acquired a bacterial infection that became sepsis, and it was a very emotional time. It was a beautiful day, as all David's family, his friends and the people of Lake Andes were showing their support with fun and games and raising money to help David., we were curled up in a hospital bed. I truly believe that this knowledge gave David the strength he needed to succeed from this battle. My own reaction to the news of the proclamation was SHOCK!! Living in South Dakota, and being an American Indian, life was difficult especially with race relations, and to hear that Charles Mix County, Lake Andes, South Dakota was honoring my son was just simply breathtaking and my thoughts of David bridging that gap were powerful... A true inspiration to many people touched by his life. He was an ordinary young man that was extraordinary with the way he made people feel about themselves. A talented athlete that made football and basketball his pride and joy, not only playing, but any mention of the Philadelphia EAGLES or the love of Tracey McGrady would never diminish. Perhaps it was also the tremendous love of pro wrestling that fueled his passions of life. Monday nights were reserved to watching David's face light up when wrestling came on the television, but also the smiles and laughter were there on Friday night, too. David's smile is what I remember the most. Even the times he was so close to losing any battle, the smile was there, but his eyes told me different, countless times. David's quest for learning began at an early age, why not? He had many role models in his life to learn from, his brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, grandparents, nephews, nieces, friends, his wonderful teachers and his parents... Math was extremely his most gifted area, in 1998 David received an award from President George Bush for his accomplishments in Math with scoring Nationally in the 96th percentile....Countless stories of his remarkable ability to answer questions in current events firsthand or his ability to even know the teachers question firsthand?? He had an amazing photogenic mind. David was full of questions, never the one to just accept things such as they were, he questioned everything. David became a wise soul in a young body. A body that would fail him in his most triumphant battle. David's medical care began in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with chemotherapy. He then was transferred to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he endured a bone marrow transplant. After hospitalization, we lived at the Ronald McDonald House, another blessing, while David recuperated. "This is the house where families meet to continue their lives, to eat and sleep, to find their strengths and dry their tears. Help them to look forward with hope to better years. This is the house that becomes their home. This is the home that LOVE built!" How true these words...Many heartfelt thanks to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, for their hospitality, this was indeed our HOME away from HOME. David's team of specialists determined that he could go back to South Dakota in February of 2007. Officially leaving the Minneapolis area was quite emotional to leave the comfort and security, but all indications were considered remarkable, David was on his way to an extraordinary recovery once again. His dreams consisted of going back to school, playing football, basketball, tinkering with his PlayStation 3, and being around his family and friends. One day becoming a National Football Player for the Philadelphia Eagles & attending the University of Oklahoma This is what we thought, but the disease had another agenda. David began complaining of his back hurting him soon after we got back to South Dakota. We became concerned, took David back to his doctors in Sioux Falls. Our doctors reassured us that David's pain was muscular in nature and we were sent home. The pain never did leave him and by the end of April, we began the struggles all over again. A third relapse??!! "This can't be happening" went through my mind over and over again; even as we were being airlifted back to Minneapolis on May1 will be our last. Our loving son, brother, nephew, grandson, friend fought his greatest battle and lost on August 21, 2007. Special loving thanks again for all the encouraging and kind things we may receive on behalf of David. David's Family truly sends their blessings throughout KELOLAND Family We will use the generous words or help to continue to spread David's Legacy for all those who choose to believe. We are forever grateful to those for giving us the opportunity to be able to celebrate life, faith, hope, love and most of all God with David's Family & Friends on his special day. Special Loving Thanks for listening and supporting our family and helping us reach others to find true meaning of Family, Love and Having Faith through anything in this life. If you can help support us and any way it would be helpful. We want to use Davids Day just as you use your way of helping kids and we want Davids Day for the Kids and families still going through or will be going through of what we share with all that comes with cancer. We want to give back so hopefully you can help. Thank You God Bless You.. We are so fortunate, so grateful, so blessed to have been able to share this experience with the blessed people from KELOLAND Family If we could make one last request on behalf of David and all the children & families who have or will be going through what we have went through. We are in the process of starting a foundation to help support Native American Children & Families dealing with the affects of leukemia. If you could help in anyway we would appreciate all the help. Thank you for listening to our story and May God Bless You. Sincerely, David Garcia Family

A huge thank you to everyone who prayed for us today. We went in for an ultrasound to determine the source of the bleeding and discovered everything is okay and our little one is doing great. We are waiting until the 2nd trimester to tell our friends and family, so it's especially meaningful to me to have the community and company of your prayers. Thank you again.

PRAISE GOD! Thank you for praying. We were so encouraged by each of you who prayed for Jacob. He had his Dr. appointment today and the Dr. said Jacob is perfectly normal. We are rejoicing. So for those of you out there who are going through trying times, there is power in prayer. We are all praying for you.

Thank you everyone who prayed for me. I received my "good report" today. The area that was biopsied came back benign! Thank you Jesus! In fact, when I went in for the biopsy they could not find the area in question on the mammogram... after one hour of looking they were about to send me home. However, they then found a couple of areas the size of the tip of a needle. They went ahead and completed the biopsy on these areas... which again turned out to be benign! Praise God and thank you for your prayers! Let us always trust in the Lord for He is able!

Thank you so much for the prayers! It amazes me beyond my own comprehension how the power of God works! I had requested prayers for guidance in my relationship with a man. Last night was a very difficult as the art of communicating was at a low point. Today, when I wanted to know where God was leading me, I saw people had been praying! Just what I needed...and all I needed! Thank you so much

I, Rick, want to thank everyone who has prayed for our marriage since I posted the need. We are in need of healing. I am realizing that I have not listened to my spouse for alot of years. I also have not listened to our marriage counselor for about 2 years. My head has been stuck in sand trying to get my own way. I have not loved, cherished, or honored my wife for years. We currently are in a separation and this is the second separation in one year. Our son is 18 and our daughter 14. Please pray that I will listen to God, listen to my voussoirs and listen to my wife when we are togetheron our scheduled family activities.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who prayed for me today. After miscarrying my first pregnancy a few months ago, I had excellent results from a blood test today showing I'm about 5 weeks into a new pregnancy. This is extremely encouraging! My hubby and I are relieved and a little nervous with new-parent jitters, but overall very, very happy. We have an early ultrasound in a few weeks to look for a beating heart. We're waiting to find that heart beat before we make any announcements, so for now we're continuing to wait, hope, and pray. Thank you! Your prayers mean more to me than I can express.

I had just posted a prayer request last week regarding praying for our struggle with infertility. Thanks be to God and your prayers, we have just received a positive pregnancy test!

I asked for prayers a few days ago for my Mom and her hip surgery. Great news. The pain that was there for a year and a half is gone. The surgery was 6 hours long but well worth it. She knows she has a long road ahead of her but her family pulled together with the strength of the Lord. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!!! I've never asked for prayers or done a prayer request. Thanks soooo much!!! Kristi

Thank-you for praying for my daughter (safe travel & good weekend coaching her softball team) the weekend of April 29th. She was blessed with good travel, and a good weekend with her team (10 year old, girls' fast-pitch softball). The team did very well their first time out! Thanks for your prayers!

My mother (almost 80), was hospitalized on Tuesday because she wasn't feeling right. As it turned out, she had a mild stroke. God is good, she has no side effects from the stroke. She has been released from the hospital & the doctors are starting her on medication. Thank-you for your prayers.

I just wanted to thank you all for the prayers that you all did for my son!! The tests came back normal!! I appreciate all the prayers, and thank you to the Life 96.5 family!! Prayers truly work!!! Thanks be to God!

When I hit the submit key on my prayer request, I was filled with an immediate calming feeling. Just expressing my hurt and frustration and asking God to grant me patience, peace and happiness was exactly what I needed to let go and let God. I then began to read other prayer requests and found that things could be so much worse in my life. I began to feel healing in the simple act of praying for others. I am thankful and praise God for all of my blessings. Thank you Life 96.5 for Prayer Works! It really works!!

Thanks to all the people who prayed for my husband last week. It was overwhelming to see prayer confirmations coming in each day. The first results of his MRI were not positive. After another reading the radiologist suggested that things were not looking so bad after all. We will scan again in two months and in the meantime we will give the glory to God! He is able to do far more than we know!

Our 20-yr old niece has been married for a year this Saturday to a guy she had only known a few months. Last week she told me she was divorcing him. I asked you all and a few close friends to pray. Yesterday we saw them at a family Easter meal and they are planning to stay together and work things out. What a wonderful answer to prayer. It won't be an easy road, and they still both need to dedicate their lives to the Lord, but we are so thrilled. Thanx again! The Lord is so good, and when we team together to pray it is so powerful.
