Hi, my name is Jacob and I will confess, I am a sinner. Now, that's not to say that I am a willing sinner. However, before I was saved, I was caught up in so much wickedness, that I can look back and say what I was doing was, In fact, crazy stupid sin. I was a smoker and I used to go through a half pack to a pack and a half of cigarettes a day, depending on how stressed I felt. I used to smoke a lot of pot and when I say a lot, I mean a LOT... I tried cocaine and I liked it way too much. In fact, I'd reckon to say that on my first time trying cocaine, I got addicted to amphetamines. Shortly after trying cocaine a few more times, I faked having ADHD to get a hold of adderall and more specifically it's generic counterpart amphetamine salts because it was cheaper than cocaine and a lot cheaper than adderall. It got so bad that I would rail an entire month's prescription in four days or less. For those of you who don't know what it means to rail a medication, it means to crush up the pill into a powder and snort it through a straw into the nose. It would give an effect comparable to cocaine and is just as damaging, if not more so for certain medications. Later, I moved on to cough syrup because a lot of them have a drug called dextromethorphan (also referred to as DEX) as their main cough suppressant. But, what you may not know is that DEX causes powerful hallucinogenic and dissociative effects when you take enough of it. Furthermore, the way DEX works is that it suppresses the central nervous system and causes you to feel like the itch in your throat to appear to be gone. When, in fact, it's still there and you just don't feel that it's there. Furthermore, DEX is a non-selective dissociative, so it suppresses all of the bodily functions. If you take enough of it, you will stop breathing and you will suffocate to death. After that, I started popping Benadryl because of the drug in it, called Diphenhydramine (also called Diph). Diph also causes hallucinations, but also causes delirium and black outs. I actually wound up on the other side of Houston during one black out. Plus, during my worst black out, I wrecked my truck and it was by the grace of God that I wasn't arrested and no one got hurt during any of my black outs. I say grace because I really, really, REALLY should have been put in handcuffs and hauled downtown by the cops. I was so out of it, I actually tried to drive away from the scene of the collision with my truck in forth gear and I was at a dead stop. I actually forgot my truck was a manual and that it was in forth gear. So, every time I tried to start moving, the engine would die as soon as I let the clutch back in. I made it about seventy-five feet from the other car, I think... Those are just the parts I remember, the majority of everything else that happened and how I got there is a blank. I eventually quite Diph all together, deciding it was too dangerous (much like all the other drugs I was on at the time). Soon after that, my friend got an appartment of his own... Not really, his moderately wealthy parents were paying for it. It was there that I started acting in the manner that some, if not many, would call being of a reprobate mind... (though I was likely already at that point). I was having very intimate relations with him and his lover, who was also a male. Most of the time, it would include the drugs because it made the sensations feel so much better. I continued in this behavior even after I got my first job as a gas station cashier. Even going as far as sleeping with a coworker and coming to work high, or coming down from one of my trips. I actually shared adderall with that very same coworker that I slept with and I can say that he, like me at the time, was unsaved. He later got a payday loan from the manager and skipped town the same night. By the way, I never said that it was by grace that I landed the job at the gas station. I actually let my friend talk me into stealing and eventually, I got caught for stealing over seven hundred dollars worth of merchandise. Which, as you may or may not know, counts as a class A misdemeanor (or one step below a felony). Because my case was still wrapped up in the court system, my record did not show any charges or convictions against me and that job has a strict policy against such criminal history. Plus, instead of being thrown in jain for two years and getting a ten thousand dollar fine, I was let off on probation. Which, was a show of grace from God. Anyways, back to where I was... Soon after the coworker skipped town, my job started moving me from station to station. Mostly because I was lazy, did not want to do my work, had no enthusiasm for my job, was slow and going when I did do the work and didn't really care about my job. On several occasions, I was a no call/no show. Which, as any of us who have a job know, can and will get you fired. However, God showed me grace again because on all those occasions, except the last one, I was not fired when I did show up. On the last time I was a no call/no show, I was tripping hard on a new and legal drug called spice. I called in to try and get off work, but my boss at the time said I had to show up. Yet, I just went home, watched some tv, and eventually went to sleep. For the next two days I did not go to work and did not call in to request off of work. After that, I just decided I was not going back and wrote the job off. I was out of work for a year and a half and during that time, I continued to used drugs and continued to sleep with several males. Also, during this time, I failed probation and was gifted with a second probation. Which, as I look back, was more of God's grace. Then, I happened to land a job as a delivery driver from a dry cleaning company. In addition to delivering the clothes to and from the stores, I would also check the orders, make sure they were complete, de-tag the clothes, and send them down the line to be bagged and loaded on the trucks. The work was hard for me at the time because I had to work at a very fast pace to keep up and at the same time I was still slow and rather uncoordinated with my hands, thanks to all the abuse of DEX. Eventually, I was given the choice of "quit, or you are fired." I just left after that and only went back to pick up my last pay check. It was after this point that I really started to hit spice hard and it would really, REALLY mess me up. There were so many different kinds of spice to choose from and I kept going higher and higher on the scale. At this time, I had stopped using DEX for I don't know how long, but I eventually went back to it. Then I started mixing the two drugs, spice and DEX.... It was not a good combination but it felt awesome at the time. eventually I went on a three day bender with DEX and went so hard that my mind literally cracked. (Looking back, God continued to show me His grace because I overdosed so hard that I should have died.) I actually got hauled off in an ambulance and handcuffed to the cot they took me on. I was admitted to the psychological heath and rehabilitation ward in the hospital. There I spent seven days coming down and they actually put me on antipsychotic medication. Later, I was accepted into the MHMRA (or mental health and mental retardation Administration of Harris County) because I couldn't afford the medications the doctors were prescribing me. I swore of DEX after that. Furthermore, God showed me grace again because on my last day of the second probation, I would have tested dirty on a drug test. I had gone back to pot and spice soon after I was let out of the hospital. However, my probation officer decided not to drug test me, even though I was due for one... Shortly after this, I got the job that I have now, which is as a lobby cashier for a fast food restaurant. This job was a blessing because it came right when my family and I needed it the most. I was hired at the end of October of last year. By that time, spice had really ramped up in strength and I thought it was mixing with the antipsychotics I was taking, causing some really wicked hallucinations and playing on the lust I had in me. In December, I stopped taking the antipsychotics because they only seemed to make me jittery, incapable of sitting still and actually caused psychotic symptoms. By the way, if you're not psychotic, antipsychotic drugs will cause psychotic symptoms. However, I was still smoking spice and I was still getting wicked hallucinations. At the end of January, I ran into an old coworker from my job at the gas station and I remembered that he was a good, God fearing man. I also remembered going to his church a couple of time, but I eventually stopped attending. Now, I was raised in a christian household, with christian morals and I attended a christian church when I was growing up. However, I rebelled in my teen years and I you can see what that got me... Yet, I decided to attend the services at his church again and In mid February, I decided to take the next step. Yes, I decided to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and become a born again christian. When I came up from the water, I felt a peacefulness within myself and I noticed something big that I didn't pay too much attention to in the past. I didn't hear voices anymore.... That's right, I was hearing voices, but it wasn't because I was insane. It was because of all the wicked spirits that were dwelling in me and around me. Yes, I had demons talking to me and they were telling me such horrible things. They actually made me believe I was insane, I was stupid, I was slow, I was fat, I was ugly, God would never love someone like me, I was going to go to hell (which I was, had I not been saved), I was useless, no woman would ever love me, I liked guys, I was going to die alone, and so many other things. But, all of those things are lies and I know it was the demons that told me them. After I was saved, they fled from me because they new I was covered by the blood of Christ now. Furthermore, my eyes were opened and I was able to see all the wicked, sinful things in my house for what they were. I took all of those sinful things (the porn, the drugs, the stolen music, the clothes with messages on them, my stuffed animal named puppy, and the things relating to furries, and all the things I had or used for wicked things and stuffed them in trash bags. Then I took the bags, threw them in my car, drove to a dumpster, and tossed them into the very back when no one would see them or reach them. Then I got back into my car and drove away without looking back. Now, getting up to this point you may have wondered why my story summary is "Praise be to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ." Well, I will tell you this, Jesus delivered me from those shackles that bound me to the sin of smoking, drugs, drinking, cursing, gluttony, wrath, and so many other wicked and sinful things. Now, I will admit, my chief sin (or strong man) is lust and that spirit still dwells up in me. Furthermore, that chief sin let some of those other spirits come back to an extent. specifically a sluggard spirit, a gluttonous spirit, a fearful spirit and a couple others. However, they hadn't really taken hold yet and God led me to very specific passages in His holy book to show me they were coming back. I thank God that He showed me that, too because I know that He loves me (just as he loves all his children) and Doesn't want me to fall victim to those spirits again. Furthermore, Jesus has worked so many wicked things out of me and blessed me in so many wonderful ways. I know that every step I take, every breath I inhale and exhale, every movement I make, every time my heart beats, all the strength I have, all the energy I have, all the speed I have, my arms, my legs, my hands, my feet, my fingers, my toes, my elbows, my knees, my hair, this entire body that I have, the house I live in, my family, my new friends (because all my old friends that are of the world have walked away from me, it seems), the food in the fridge and the pantry, the car, my clothes, my bed, everything I have, every good thing I receive, every day I see, every day the Lord wakes me to see, my job, every moment and every second He keeps me, and so very much more are blessings from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I praise Jesus because He is so wonderful, so loving, so kind, so gracious, so caring, so patient, so absolutely perfect and he is so very deserving of all the praise and the glory and the thanks we can offer up unto him. Thank you, Jesus, for saving a sinner like me. Thank you, Jesus, for forgiving me. Thank you, Jesus, for giving up your life on the cross to pay for a debt I could never pay for... The debt of my sin which would most certainly been the death of me. Thank you, Jesus, for being patient with me. Thank you, Jesus, for being to kind to me. Thank you, Jesus, for showing me grace and mercy. Thank you, Jesus, for blessing me in so many wonderful ways. Thank you, Jesus, for understanding that I am not perfect and for correcting me when I do sin. Thank you, Jesus, for all that you do and all that you are. Thank you, Jesus, for creating the heavens, the earth and everything in the universe. Thank you, Jesus, for creating me and giving me life. Thank you, Jesus, for blessing us with free will so that we may choose to serve You and humble ourselves unto You. Thank you, Jesus, just because I want to thank you. Jesus, Your name is wonderful, holy, and place above every other name and you are so very, very, VERY deserving of that honor, Lord. Hallelujah Jesus, Hallelujah!!!

I met Jimmy (that is the other half) in Jan. of 2007. I didn't want any kind of relationship with anyone because I was just fresh out of an eight year relationship. Well we hit it off. I moved in with him in April, he proposed in June and we got married the August of 2008. In Nov. of 2007 I found out he was talking to his ex girlfriend. I left him and went back to my parents. He promised he would change. He gave me all passwords to everything and I came back two weeks later. We ended up getting married. Well we were married and then I found out I couldn't get pregnant, we bought a house, My best friend died, I lost my job, my brother got arrested, my grandmother got diagnosed with cancer and then she passed away. Needless to say I was in a deep depression. And during this whole time he was still talking to other girls. I found that out while going through the stuff with my grandmother. He was talking to girls late at night. We didn't have sex anymore, we weren't sleeping in the same bed. I was just DONE. He got a DWI and I was really done. Well Sept. of 2012 we were really bad. He finally told me to go and file for divorce so I did. I filed the end of Sept. and he moved out in Nov. He kept begging me to let him come back...He loved me. He wanted it to work. I was just done. I had people telling me just to divorce him. He would never change. He told me he was going to church and that he stopped going out. But then would call me drunk asking to come over. He also would tell me he had a girlfriend but if I would take him back he would leave her. Well I went through with the divorce because I had so many negative people telling me it was what I needed to do. I knew I didn't want it but I didn't know how to get out of it. The divorce was final on Feb. 18th. After leaving the courthouse I was still very uneasy about it all. I cried and cried. Well on Feb. 21st I went to a concert with a friend of mine. It was a PINK concert so nothing that would symbolize anything. As I am sitting at the concert something came over me and I wanted my husband back. I texted him. He texted back we kept texting and then he told me he was with his GF. My heart dropped. I asked him if he still loved me. He just kept telling me he was going to bed it was late. I told him if he could tell me he didn't love me I would leave him alone. He never would type it. Finally after about an hour of me asking to him to tell me he doesnt love me he typed it...I DO NOT LOVE YOU...goodnight....This was about 1 in the morn. I got no sleep that night but I knew that was it. Well at 7 in the morn I get a text from him saying he does love me and he said that so that he could get some sleep cause he was getting on plane to head back to Texas. He asked if he could see me when he got home. I was still hurt. Well we saw each other...We talked we hugged we cried, we laughed. It was really good. We kept seeing each other. He talked about coming back home. Then Easter weekend he went back out of town and he went to be with HER again. My heart broke. I really thought things were going to be good. I woke up the saturday before Easter drove to a Christian bookstore to buy a bible. There was a lady in there she asked if I was okay. I told her no...She told me to go and talk to this pastor at her church. So I drove there...I spoke with him for 2 hours. I left there with HOPE that my marriage could be restored. I contacted Jimmy's pastor at his church and he and I talked he invited me to Easter Sunday Service and I accepted. Jimmy wouldn't be there so that was kind of a good thing. I told Jimmy about what I was doing and he was happy but said he and I were done. He was going to try with HER. I went to church that Sunday and it was like the Pastor was preaching to me. I knew I had to get my husband back. Well Jimmy drove back from out of town on Tuesday. We talked Tuesday night. He then cam over Wednesday after work. We started our lifegroup that Thursday. He moved back in and I thought things were going to be okay. We started going to church together, getting counseling. Just last week he tells me that he tries every morning to wake up and have feelings but he doesnt. He thinks he should move back out and have us work on us from a distance. This all coming after I got a text from HER saying that they were talking. He told me that they werent. Well we go to counseling and we talk about him moving out and all that. The Pastor said it would be best. I DO NOT AGREE. Jimmy says he wants to do right by GOD and reconcile but it is just hard when he is not in the same place I am. I am doing everything in GOD's will to make this work and Jimmy is pushing me away. I have prayed and told GOD that if Jimmy moves out that is God's answer to me that we are done. So that is where I am at right now? I don't know how to get Jimmy to stay? To WORK at this for once? He is going to leave and there isn't anything I can do...Please pray that he stays and we work through this together...please just pray for our marriage to be reconciled

We have some good news. Rachel went to see the liver specialist on Wednesday. Her cirrhosis has not progressed as rapidly as they had thought it would. She still has elevated enzyme numbers and her liver is failing but not as fast as they predicted. She still suffers with chronic fatigue, and sometime forgetfulness and confusion but those things are what we have been told to expect. She will not be going on the transplant list for now. We are so happy to have this good news. I firmly believe that it is due to God's mercy. He has heard all of our prayers and blessed her. Thank you to each of you who have lifted her up in prayer on numerous occasions. She also had a check up with the cardiologist. Everything as far as her heart is concerned is doing well as can be expected with all that she has been through. She is able to work some and some of her old cheerful personality comes through on numerous occasions. This is a long journey, but we are blessed to have each of you praying for her and having your love and support. I cannot thank you enough. God is so good. I ask Him to bless you and your families.

Thank you all for the prayers. He was found on Saturday afternoon. After 12 days missing he was a skeleton, disoriented, and had a long wound on his leg.

Thanks to all who prayed and God for answering the prayers!

I requested prayers for my granddaughter Emma Claire. She was going through surgery Wednesday and they did not expect her to survive. It is now Saturday and she is doing so much better. They have relieved some of the blood clots and her swelling is going down. The settings on the ventilator have been lowered as she can now breath easier. Her blood pressure and heart rate are stable. Praise God our prayers were answered. Please continue to pray for her complete recovery so she may go home with her loving family. Thanks to all who prayed with us for her survival and healing.

Thank you to each and everyone who prayed for the parents of my sweet daughter-in-law. Her mom had been stricken with encephalitis and was in critical condition in the hospital. Prayer warriors began praying Monday morning and she began improving Monday afternoon after a week of steady decline. She actually said an intelligible word to the ICU nurse. It was only "Hello", but it was a word! Then Tuesday she called her sister by name after not recognizing anyone for over a week. This has been a powerful witness to the awesome power of prayer for our son and daughter-in-aw! Please continue to pray for her improvement and may God bless as you bless others!

My home where I reside was burglarized. They entered through the top of garage. I did not notice at first. Many items were in boxes, I hadn't unpacked everything. Many items were in the garage. Then I notice items from the house were missing. Since it did not happen all at once, I did not have a date to report when my property was stolen. I think it happened several different days. When I couldn't find something I would think that I missed placed it and it would turn up but several items did not. This started back at this address in 2006. Today is 2013, I'm going to the college to pick my son up at 9pm at night , There is a man standing on the overpass with a tripod and camera. I have a tripod and camera missing. This is a small digital camera with a tripod??? Does not make sense. Its my loss of property, I didn't have an actual date of the missing goods, I did not write serial numbers down of my property, many items were passed down. Parents wedding ring set.Silverware sets,Video Camera and many other goods Thieving spirits actually tormenting hurt individuals who already had more than I could carry.......Do thieves and evil deeds really find pleasure pouring salt into Christ wounds through his people. Is it my sin that I did not know when it happened or was unable to make a report of actual events. Big noticeable items were not stolen. A wall picture of Christ was removed from my home. Thank you for your prayers and advice.
April 30, 2013

I had asked for prayer for my great friend, Lisa W. She was diagnosed with many types of cancer the first week of March. She died peacefully in a hospice unit 10 days ago. She was able to see her only son and got to hug him and talk to him, even though she had been in and out of consciousness before he arrived. We are thankful that her pain is over. Thanks for your concern and prayers.

I thank the Lord for answering my prayer! My best friend came to know christ this past sunday. He has always known about jesus and growing up he as raised to believe in jesus, but when things started to take a turn in his life he drifted away from jesus. He decided it was time for a change in his life and he believed that jesus is the right way. He accepted jesus as his savior and I thank the lord for hearing my prayer! The lord answers prayers, it may not be right there and then but he hears all prayers and answers them, we need to have strong hope and FAITH.

Please pray for Colin. He has an alcohol and drug addiction which so bad his life is in danger. He frequently over uses. I think he needs to be hospitalized rehabilitation, but his family has only coddled him and this has only helped to insulate him from any accountability, and from getting the help he really needs. It has badly damaged his health and relationships, and he has also suffered physically and spiritually by result of it. Coin also suffers from other ailments and needs total healing for his body, for his life, and for his soul. Please ask God to bring Colin influential people for Christ, and that He will lead Colin to salvation in Jesus. Please ask God to protect Colin, and that He will save his life. Thanks for your help to pray for him. God bless.

I recently posted two prayer requests, one for my marriage and one for my severe depression. God has been working in my life and I have finally - after 13 years of thinking I was saved - given my life to Christ! It isn't magically perfect or anything, but man it feels good to FEEL and KNOW I'm loved and not alone. I let His truth wash over me and not have any doubts. I finally feel like everything is going to be okay. Praise God! And praise God for my new church, which I love so much and has played a vital role in my being born-again.

I was in a dark place for many years. I found out I couldn't have children, my best friend passed away, I lost my job, my brother got arrested, my grandmother died and my husband was cheating. I let everything go. Instead of seeking help I just hid my feelings from everything. I pushed my husband away more and more, We divorced not because I wanted it because I was sick of everything. Well I had a realization while sitting at a concert one night. I knew my heart belonged to him. We got in contact and we are WORKING on our marriage. I woke up last saturday the day before Easter walked into a Christian Bookstore and this lady gave me a number to a pastor. I talked with him and asked God for forgiveness. Gave it all to God. My husband (ex) was out of town with another girl. He was done with me. With lots of prayer he called me last night. He is going to talk with his pastor. God does work and I am excited to see him to continue to work to reconcile my marriage.

My mother had been unemployed and recieved a call from her previous employer to come back permanent with full time benefits. That's when she discovered she had a cancerous tumor, that was removed recently ( though she has to complete her 4 treatments of chemo). Though she lost all her hair. I found her crying and hugged her. Sobbing we hugged and I thought it was about her going bald, she instead told me it was was about my brother and her not speaking for a total of three years. My brother had been upset at her and avoided her for three years, which felt like ten. He avoided us and never told us the reason. Finally, we found out someone accused my mother of witchcraft, and my brother believed it since things were going downhill for him at the time and he believed the false accusation. I continuously prayed and gave up at one point because I had no strength over what sounded like a joke. Instead I had to focus on my mothers health but what was really hurting her was my brother. Finally, after prayer, patience and faith they have finally spoke and found peace in their hearts to forgive each other and move forward. This Easter was a blessing to reunite the entire family. Thank God for answering my prayers, my mother is happy reuniting with my brother and being a cancer survivor.

I would like to thank you all for the prayers. I am feeling much better today, No problems breathing and the pressure in my chest is gone. THANK YOU JESUS!!!!! Prayer does work

Thank you to everyone for their prayers and notes. It has meant so much to me. I finally went to the doctor and she gave me meds to deal with my anxiety, fears, etc. I am feeling better and better each day. Although this had me hit rock bottom there were some blessing and graces in these last few weeks. I have heard more about God and prayer in my house than ever before. We are still searching for a church and today, my husband said he wanted to go to Easter Mass. SO EXCITED. so, although, I have been up and down with my anxiety attacks I am blessed. Thanks again for all your prayers. If I can ask for one more prayer, I would like for God to coninue to guide me and my family. May God Bless you!

I posted a request for my niece's unborn twins that shared the same placenta. They were born healthy, even though a couple of weeks early. They are now 18 months old, doing great and I praise the Lord for answering prayer.

I requested prayer for Lisa W. a few days ago. She has four types of cancer, all in Stage 4, and because she has no insurance, no one will treat her until she gets a Medicaid gold card. Another friend has called in hospice to help her. She was sent home from the hospital due to lack of insurance. Her mother has dementia and is very confused and bothering Lisa for help at home. Pray for a miraculous healing, or least a pain free death. She is a 50 year old believer. Thank you so much.

I submitted a prayer request for my marriage back in January. I also asked for closure on a relationship I was having with someone else. My husand and I had been separated when I was seeing the other person, But I fell in love with that other person. My husband had always been asking for an open relationship and had cheated on me several times. I had gone into being "a robotic wife". So when I met the 3rd person something inside of me awoke...unknown to me I ended up being hurt by both of these men. I prayed for closure with the 3rd party and resolution/calmness with my husband. Its still a work in progress and continued prayers are very much needed. The 3rd party is now obsolete and is no longer a factor. But my entire view of my husband is forever changed due to all the stress, unnecessary hurtful words and lies he continues to tell me. I don't feel that I can move forward with him and I have told him that several times but he refuses to accept that. We just had an anniversary on 3/18 and are still separated. I pray for guidance, wisdom and that I may head in the right direction with this situation. I have 3 children and have been happy tending to them only. I think it's bad that I have gotten to the point where I do not miss my husband. But I still pray that I am making the right decision by being on my own with my children.

I had asked that my friend, Laura W, get some financial help from her ex-husband for their daughter's college loans. He gave Laura a check for 5000.00, which is approximately 1/10 of the total loans, but it is significant at this time. Thanks for your continued prayers.
March 17, 2013
Thank you for praying for my husband. Every time I checked my e-mail and got notice that someone else had prayed for him my heart lifted knowing we weren't alone. I am thrilled to say that his treatment is working!! God is so good!! He is never late, never, ever early and ALWAYS on time!! God bless you all!!

God has let mankind make so many choices on our own, but this time he made the decision for us. My grandfather has been fighting a long battle of strokes, organ failures, and heart infections and finally his body gave in. It all started with a small tooth infection that spread to his heart then his brain. My family had just received bad news on the day before he passed. The doctors told us that both sides of my grandpa's had dead and all that was left was the steam so he couldn't understand us, see, or feel any emotions. He was basically a vegetable. The doctors said that they couldn't do anything else but keep him on the machine because his mind just wasn't there anymore. My grandpa couldn't even pump his own heart. We all sat down to talk about what to next. We decided to keep him on the machines for another month because we just weren't ready to let him go yet .Also because we wanted to see if there was any improvement. No one really knew what to do are really wanted to think about it either. So god made the choice to let my grandpa's suffering finally be over. I keep asking myself why god would take away someone that everyone loved so much but I guess god just didn't want to put the pain and despair on our hearts to have to make the decision to let him go. I know it was my grandpa's time but everyone just misses him so much. We are now starting to plan the funeral and it's just so painful for everyone to look at his picture especially his wife. But I'm just glad we got to make all those lovely memories with him. Finally the weight of worrying if my grandpa's is going to die during the night or if he is ever going to get better again is lifted off our shoulders. I know God said that he would never give us anything he think we couldn't handle but I cry every time I think about anything even just when the doorbell rings. Sometimes I want to question God's decision but I know there for the best. Thank you for all the prayer from my first prayer request The Situation Worsen I thank everyone truly for all the support. I hope everyone is safe and has included God in their life to pick them up and carry them through the rough times. But please try to pray that my family soon find comfort, happiness, and that we are able to move on and have him live through us. In loving memory of my biggest hero and bigger fan. R.I.P

On Sunday morning my family received a call regarding my granddad who lives in South Carolina. He was admited to the hospital with a severe bladdar infection, his bladdar was septic, he was in a medically induced coma due to seizures on the way to the hospital in the ambulance, and the doctors believed that he had brain damage based on some tests they conducted while he was in the coma. My mom, my husband, our families, friends, and I all prayed that if this was his time to go to let him pass peacefully and for my mom to make it through this rough patch. We also prayed that if this was not his time to pass to let him heal and to be himself with no effects of brain damage. Yesterday evening my mom called me to let me know that my granddad was out of the coma and that aside from being grumpy and hungry, he was fine. He ate more yesterday than he had eaten in the past 3 weeks and he seems to be on the mend. God is SO good! He DOES answer prayers and He DOES heal all wounds! Amen!

I was depressed hopeless and hurt. Our two income family down to one. Bills back behind and drowning in debt. I got behind on our mortage. I hadn't made a payment on since September 2012. Forclosure was definitely in my future.I felt alone and ashamed no one to talk to and comfort me. I lost the closest person to me in 2009 (my twin brother) and everything was going down hill since then. JESUS saved me. He gave me peace that passes ALL understanding. A few weeks ago I asked you all to pray for me. My home was in danger of foreclosure. TODAY at noon I recieved a call from the mortgage company. I start fresh April 1st making lower payments than I had before. GOD is REAL and prayer works!!! Thank you all.. I can't put into words how I feel right now. GLORY TO GOD!!

Thank you for praying for me. Update-My husband and I are still separated, but not divorced. I finally learned to LET GO and LET GOD. I have continued the 30 day challenge for myself and I find such peace in the morning and calm in the evening ride to work and home. Through these trying times I am thankful God has allowed me to sit patiently as he works his own will, not mine. I do see signs of change in my husband and signs that my prayers are working. I stand before you now and pray that you continue your blessings on me and my husband and we work to mend our marriage, return to our home and become one in union, husband and wife again. I pray for continued forgiveness for both of us. Thank you for continuing to pray for us, pray for continued opening of my husbands heart and the healing of our relationship. In God's name I pray.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers these past couple of days, for they have indeed been answered. After almost two years, my mother is now employed again as a journalism teacher thanks to all of you who prayed with me. It will be a long couple of months before our finances are straightened out and we still have to pay all of the kindness we have been given this past year forward, but it is a small price to pay (and a rather happy one) if it means that my mother is again employed. God bless you all! :)

She recovered remarkably and it was a way for us to spend time with her and say goodbye instead of her having the heart attack and dying right away. Thank you for your prayers that we received while she was recovering. It was a difficult road to recovery and God took her home. Please pray for Jane's family and friends to comfort them as they miss her. God bless you and your family.

I had put in a prayer request last week on my sick puppies Dreamer and Minnesota. And I am happy to say that they are back to 100% in their health. They never could tell me what was wrong with them, but I am thankful because I know that God healed them and that everyone's prayers helped. I was so touched by everyone's prayers and I am so thankful to all those who took time out of their day to pray for my puppies and myself as I was also dealing with a situation at work. May God bless all those who prayed for us and May God bless those waiting on their prayers to be answered. Do not give up, God listens.

I recently posted about my son and being in jail. He called yesterday morning about 4 a.m. I was a nervous wreck, I listened to KSBJ all day and prayed that he would call back because I missed that call. His name was no longer on listed on the jail roster. God answered the prayer, he called me around 7 last night he has been moved to the drug rehab where he will be for 6 months, I was so happy to hear his voice. He sounded so good, he told me I can't see him or talk to him on the phone for a month he could hear me get choaked up, for the first time he said "mom this is what I need to do everything will be okay this is all for the good I love you". Thank you all that prayed for him, he is changing I heard it in his voice yesterday...I have faith that God will keep touching his heart and that I will have my sweet son back. God is AWESOME!

my cousin had brain surgery a week ago Tuesday. Mind you after my cousin had his brain surgery he was told he couldn't go back to collage this year and he has to move back in with my aunt & uncle.He was told he has to take therapy to re-teach his brain and that he couldn't drive. Earlier this week my cousin goes to the neurologist and the neurologist gave him a clean bill of health and said that he can go ahead and return to collage! He goes to therapy and therapy gives him a clean bill of health!!

I wanted to praise God. I was in a horse accident on august first and had paralyzes for three days. I went into sugery to get the blood and liquid of my spine and got out with doctors saying i would never walk again. During those three days i was praying asking God to give me strength to get through this accident and give my family and friends strength to get through this. the third day i woke up from a nap and was moving my toes and my feet. the next day i moved my legs and within a week i was walking slowly with a walker. God truly is good!
February 02, 2013
Praise God my son will be getting the help he needs, he will leave to San Antonio on Monday and start his treatment for 30 days. He also got diagnosed with PTSD , I'm glad they diagnosed him before he was discharged from the Army otherwise he probably would have had a hard time later on in his life. Thank you all for your prayers!!!!
January 30, 2013
Update my son went home for lunch to talk to my daughter in law about her leaving him and I guess he was already drunk thank you for your prayers because since he was home she was able to take away the keys and keep him from driving drunk. She was able to get his commander and first sergeant to help get him the help he needs he is now in the hospital getting sober. Prayer that he stay in there as long as it takes for him to get the help he needs. They are saying it could be as little as two days to as long as 11 weeks, please pray for the 11 weeks or longer he really needs help he is just in denial. Thank you all so much for your prayers they really do work my son is proof !!!
January 30, 2013
Update on my daughter in law and my son, she decided to stay and help him get the help he needs for the alcohol problem. The commanders wife and first sergeant went to help her with him, he is now admitted in the hospital. Now we need prayer that he stays as long as it takes for him to be sober they are saying they could only keep him for as little as two days to 11 weeks we are praying for 11 weeks or longer. Thank you for all your prayers!!!
January 30, 2013
Ok I asked for prayer for my son Chris to get help with his alcohol problem because he is in danger of losing his wife and kids and getting kicked out of the military. Today his first Sargent called my husband and asked a few questions about Chris and then he suggested Chris be admitted in the hospital. I'm so happy about that because now he can get the help he needs, but the hospital called my daughter in law and said they could not keep him unless there is enough evidence to keep him. Please pray the find all the evidence needed so he can get the help he needs. We believe my son has PTSD prayer that he gets the help he needs. And thank you for all your prayers I believe God is listening because everyone is aware that he is struggling and people are going to help him
January 30, 2013
A few days ago I asked for prayer for my son and daughter in law with their marriage. It's gotten worst now she is telling him she wants to leave him and plans to leave tomorrow back to California. My son is still in the military and he has gotten himself in trouble with drinking and is in trouble of getting discharged from the military. I'm worries for him because he seems to be losing everything he loves. I know it's his fault because of his poor choices he made but I know God does not want a broken marriage and the girls without a dad. Only God can create a miracle for them at this time prayer for restoration in the marriage please

I sent in a prayer request earlier this month, asking for Prayer for my Daughter due to the diagnosis of a Brain Tumor. On the 7th of Jan, 2013 she had it removed, with no complications. The Doctors ran tests and she will not have to have any type of chemo or radiation therapy. She was released from the hospital on Saturday, and is doing amazing. She along with everyone that knows about her situation KNOWS that we have a miracle working Savior that is responsible for this miracle we are watching unfold. She turned 9 years old 2 days after surgery, and she is the strongest little girl I have ever known. Continue to pray for this situation, thank you and bless each and everyone.
January 16, 2013
Jimmy and Chase Bobby, both in a horrific four Wheeler accident, are doing much better. Jimmy broke his neck in two places and had successful surgery and not paralyzed. Chase had severe head trauma and was transferred today to a children's rehab center. It is only by God's grace both are alive and doing so well. Thank you Ksbj and all the prayer warriors. God is so good and does listen.

January 14, 2013
It started when I lost my job almost in June 2011. I really liked this job. As of today, I am still looking for another job which puts alot of stuff on hold. The main thing is having a baby. I am not getting any younger and I dont know if my husband makes enough to take care of me, a baby and the bills. This also puts a hold on getting a house. We just had our rent raised and now I was told that our apartment complex is turning into subsidized housing . I know the basic meaning of that but I dont know what kind of people it will draw. I am a very quiet person, I dont like drama. On top of all this by husband has been having shoulder pains so he went to the Chiropractor and to get that somewhat fixed is going to cost $600. And then he has a huge student loan that needs to be paid plus we owe on taxes. I just want a break

I posted this prayer request below months ago and when I am so low and distraught, someone prays over my months old request. It is so mind boggling, that this person chooses to pray over my request just when I need it. I wish to meet my prayer partner. My email address is email@example.com. Thanks. I pray that God will help me through my loneliness and bring someone else who is in need of the same. To comfort us both. Male or Female, it doesn't matter. I must not be doing something right because this prayer still goes unanswered. Can someone please explain to me why?
January 08, 2013

Sometime in February I put up a prayer request about my 3 year relationship which came to an abrupt end. At the time I didn't understand what was going on, I thought my World was going to end, I even contemplated suicide. I am here today to thank y'all for your prayers. I also want to testify about the Lord's Greatness, I have never been more happier in my life, than I am today! His blessing are so overwhelming, I find myself saying thank you pretty much every single minute if day. I am a firm believer of Isaiah 55: 8-9 today.

I had asked for prayers for my seven year old who was going to be attending a new school and was very nervous and scared, thanks to your prayers he has been attending his new school for 3 weeks and loves it. He still adjusting and trying to make new friends, but has been doing very well, so well to the point that he brought straight A's on his progress report. We are very proud of him and will keep reaffirming him letting him know that God is always with him. I had also asked for prayers for my older brother who was struggling after being in the military for 15 years and having to get back to the civilian life was becoming very challenging for him. He was struggling in finding a job, and had put himself in serious debt due to the fact that he had been without work for almost 3 months. He is far from his family and was struggling, he finally received a call for a job interview and he got the job, the only obstacle now was him having to move to a different state for this job, with literally not a penny to his name, we were looking for miracle to be able to get him moved to a different state. And thank God for his mercy and his love, I was able to get a loan from my boss to help my brother out. I'm so thankful to God for not leaving our side, and I thank him for I know he will keep being by our side as we all get back on our feet. My family and I want to say Thank You for your prayers!!!

My sweet baby girl has changed her major to Art Education. Since the little kids follow her around at church, this may be a good match for her. Commercial Art was too cut throat and competitive for her.

I suffered from menopausal symptoms and my doc said it wasn't that. My biggest issue was the energy level. I got to the point I'd have to call for someone to come watch my two year old because i couldn't stay awake. I tried vitamins. diet change and other things. My husband and I finally opted to have a surgery to help with some of the hormone issues. I am no longer on the doctor prescribed emotional meds and back to my regular "normal" life.. Thanks for all the prayers

His blood pressure keeps bottoming out so they are constatnly trying to regulate it. The doctors are uncertain as to whether or not this infant will suffer from permanent brain damage, be blind ... or what. Please continue to pray for Keegan. He will turn 7 weeks old this week.

After not hearing from the hospital where I interviewed for several weeks. I looked for jobs in other places. I just started a job as a cashier in a large store. It only pays about 1/3 of what the hospital job would have paid but it's a great job and a great company with nice coworkers. I didn't get the job I was asking for but i got a job that I can probably handle better and enjoy more.

October 18, 2012
Had the job interview today. Talked to three different head nurses at once. I did my best. One head nurse seemed to relate to me. One was hard to read and another crossed her arms about 1/2 way through the interview and wouldn't smile. If God wants me to have a job I'll get one. If I get hired God will enable me to work 12 hour shifts and to understand all of the computer things I need to know. Maybe God doesn't want me to work in a hospital anymore. The recruiter told me that it will be close to November before I hear anything. Lots of time to pray.
October 10, 2012
We have a patient who has a diagnosis of breast cancer. This weekend she was unable to walk. Yesterday we found out that her cancer has spread to her spinal column and spinal fluid. She has two small children in first grade. Her husband lost his job with a CPA firm because he was under his 90 trial period and had to take time to care for his wife and children. They have no family here and the nurse and the therapist are taking the children and caring for them so he can be with her at the hospital. Next week a friend and his pastor's wife from New York should arrive to help. Please pray for the family and for this heart-breaking situation.
October 05, 2012
A month or so ago I posted on the prayer wall about the hatred that was in my heart and anxiety that was plaguing my life. I am blessed to say that I've had a turn around, Praise the Lord! Although I have ways to go, just the fact that I can be out in public and not feel those horrible feelings is a true Blessing for me. I must say thank you for all of you who prayed for me. God Bless!
September 26, 2012
Thank you all for praying for our boys. Our oldest son went to Chicago for a mission trip and God really worked in his life. We have seen a loving young man come home and he is working with his brother. It is an answer to a mother's prayer when her boys are finding ways to get along. Thank you again for the prayers. I always say prayers really work.

IT'S WITH DEEP SORROW THAT I MUST TELL ALL WHO PRAYED FOR SASHA THAT SHE HAS GONE TO LIVE WITH THE LORD ON 9/11/12, I DO BELIEVE THE PRAYERS WORKED FOR HER TO STAY HERE A LITTLE LONGER FOR HER MOTHER TO ARRIVE FROM MEXICO AND LOVED ONES TO TELL HER HOW MUCH THEY LOVE AND WILL MISS HER DEARLY. Through the Scriptures, however, we learn that, one day, God will turn mourning into gladness and sadness into joy. That is God's plan. Because we know him, our ultimate destiny is heaven, and we have the solid assurance that one day all sickness, death and sorrow will be banished --- we will be perfect and complete. All of this earth, including our pain, is temporary, but our joy will last forever.

9/2011 - Laid off after 10 yrs at ExxonMobil/SeaRiver Maritime at age 54. Posted prayer requests for a job to KSBJ several times...5/2012 Got a temp job for three months. 8/2012 - temp contract expired but the employer renewed it with the agency as an open-ended contract so I could stay on. All my family and friends and church acquaintances have been praying for me as they all knew how much I wanted to stay on with this employer in a permanent position. Today, 9/12/2012 The temp job manager made me a job offer and I accepted. It is the job I always wanted to do when I was at SeaRiver Maritime and was never given the chance..Now I'm in a great company, am going to learn a new product field, wonderful co-workers, an easy and stress-free commute and getting to do the job I have wanted for 10 years! Thank you, God, for teaching me patience as I waited on this job to be offered and for the job offer coming through when I was beginning to get discouraged. Thanks to family, friends, Crosspoint Church of Pearland and KSBJ for the unending prayers and support!

God enabled me to get into a medical program that I did not deserve. I have been trying to make everything better, but things and times were hard. I made a lot of bad chioces in the pasat and I did not know if God would help me anymore or listen to me, but God has proved to me how forgiving and merciful he is to me. All I can do now is thatnk God all the time now for everything he has done for me and thank everyone who prayed for me. I hope blessings just fall upon all of us as we move forward in our Christian walk with him. Thank you everyone.

Thank you. Thank you. God is awesome. He is amazing. I just want to thank everyone that's prayed for me for the past two days(court day 1 postponed). Went into court today and very scared that I'd lose custody of my girls and have limited contact with them. God is awesome. Not only do I get to retain custody of my girls, I have primary custody. Prayer works. Thanks KSBJ and all the prayer warriors. I can't say it enough. The past 2 days have been the longest days of my life. I'm now going to enjoy today and every day, but especially today with my girls.

I am a certified teacher who was laid off at the end of the 2011 school year due to budget cuts. This past year I subbed and apply at more schools and positions than I could count. I did not get called for even one interview until after a year. Two weeks ago I was interviewed for 2 different positions. One was full time with hours of 8:30 - 5:00. The other was 2.5 days per week working 7-3 and 7-11. I felt good about both interviews and prayed about it. I told God I was torn between the full time position which was with middle school students and rush hour traffic hours and the part time position with elementary students with great hours. I did not receive a call for either position and was feeling a little down, but again I prayed and thanked God for all the blessings I have. Then this morning the elementary school principal called and offered me a full time teaching position at her school. So now I have a full time position with the hours I preferred. God truly does answer our prayers, if we leave things to him. I am truly grateful and praise our loving and awesome Lord.

On August 10, 2012 I asked for prayer for peace among my mom, my only sister (whom has a rare stage 3 breast cancer & severly depressed), my sister's sons, my 2 brothers, myself & entire family. I am so blessed to say that GOD does hear prayers! Thank you KSBJ & ALL prayer warriors for your prayer & support! This past Saturday, I saw the peace & unity among my family as we did a bar-b-q benefit for my sister to help her with medical expenses. It was so heart warming to see my sister join us as she was uplifted from her severe depression seeing all the support & love from all our family & friends. It was so wonderful to see family come together setting all family issues aside to help support my sister through this trials of storms in her life. Thank YOU KSBJ & All whom prayed for you have been a great inspiration in my life! May God continue to bless you! Thank You for your continued prayers!

The prayer partners have been praying with me for several months to bring into my life someone else who is lonely also and bring us together. Well, I have been talking with a wonderful man, that confesses to be god fearing like myself. We are both praying daily this is God's answer to our prayers. He is away working for the next month, so we are talking via emails until we meet. Everything looks so positive, like we were meant for each other. We ask for continued prayers to bring this to pass for us, live happily ever after and grow old together with each other.

On 4/28/12, I requested a prayer regarding for a need to pass my big "all or nothing" exam within a limited attempt (5 is the maximum) prior to graduation. The result: I passed on my third attempt! Thrilled and relieved to pass on my third try, it is safe to say that I can move on with graduation and do great things with my degree! I wouldn't be able to achieve this goal without your prayers and support. Thank you so much and God bless! ^__^

All praises belong to the Lord. My friend just told me her results from the second test.... NEGATIVE!!!! She found out on Monday that her HIV test was positive. The doctor order another that came back negative today. The doctor was not sure why she tested positive in the first place but as a believer, I believe God healed my friend. I will continue to pray for her healing and her relationship with God.

On June 17, 2012 @ 12:00am Houston time. I noticed an approaching typhoon to the tiny island of Okinawa, Japan. I prayed that they would be safe. But I felt agonized that I was all alone. Just like the many thousands of people living on the Island. While listening to KSBJ, watching the radar imagery from space. I heard Dwane (the present DJ on air) asking for prayer request. He has a very calming voice. I am always calmed when I hear his voice. While agonizing in prayer I called out for him. To my surprise he picked up the call immediately. I spoke a simple request for the safety of the people of Oakinawa. and in formed him that a very large air mass was already on the way, at a 90 degree heading from the typhoon's heading. I did not feel that it would get there in time though. Dwane received my simple request. A little after 2:40am June 18, 2012 Inoticed that the massive air was picking up some speed. A little past 3:00am after Dwane lead us in prayer I heard of others also in need and I prayed for them also. Dwane called my name and we all prayed together. I no longer felt all alone in prayer. God Listened and smashed into the typhoon flatening the whole side of it. Moving it over to a safer course sparring a devastating blow to the people of Oakinawa. Thanks God. Thank you Dwane. Thanks KSBJ listeners. I saw an awesome miracle. Wow, yeah Wow!

On Thursday evening, my husband left his aunt's house and went to visit other family members as he was scheduled to leave in the early morning hours on Friday to return to the US. After looking for him for hours, his aunt called me and said that she could not find him any where in her close-knit village. At the moment that his ride to the airport showed up at 2 am, my husband comes running down the road. He had accidentally fallen asleep in the backyard of a friend's house and no one knew he was there. I am so thankful for your prayers. I know that it was God answering the prayers of the many who were praying at that exact moment to wake him up and send him running back to his aunt's house at that time. He is now at home and we are extremely thankful for his safe return to the US.

The last few days I submitted two prayer requests and both were answered. One was for a friend that has come to the realization that he is an alcoholic and turned his life over to God. He was waiting for an opening in a rehab facility and one opened yesterday. The other prayer was for my neighbor who suffered storm damage to her house on Tuesday. The most heartbreaking thing for her was not her house, but that her beloved dogs got out of her yard. They were found and returned to her today. She is so happy, relieved, and grateful to all who prayed for her. God is amazing. To God goes all the glory, but also thanks to those to take time to pray for strangers.

I wrote in asking for prayer for my 23 yr marriage back in May. My husband was adament about ending our marriage just as I had been before that. Through faithful prayer we are back together and happier than ever! Getting the msgs that someone had just prayed for me helped more than I can tell you. Thank You Jesus for Your mercy and thank you KSBJ and listeners for your prayers and support. It has made a lasting impact in my life.

In April and May, I asked for prayer for my brother, Grant. He made a bad decision in April and was arrested for possession of marijuana. He is only 18 years old and graduated from high school in May. Praise God!-he has completely turned his life around and knows what he did was wrong. He told me when he was arrested, it was the scariest night of his life, but was praying the whole time he was in jail and could feel God comforting him. He was able to change his prom plans so he wouldn't be hanging out with his old friends that were bad influences, his prom date, and God has given him new friends. Please continue to pray for him as he will go off to college in the Fall. Pray that God would provide good, Christian friends for him and opportunities to get involved in Christian organizations on campus. Thank you for your prayers. Nothing is too big for God.

I submited a prayer requests on May 29th and I have been asking everyone I know who believes in the power of God to pray for me and my husband over the past few weeks. On June 1st I came home from work to find my husband standing in the living room. As soon as I walked into the door he hit me with "I am leaving you". I was completely blown away, as I knew he was unhappy but I had no idea he would throw our marriage away without a fight. I bursted into tears and at first I was angry. He said he did not know when he would be moving out but it would be soon. I left our home angry and upset and as I was leaving our subdivision I began to pray and cry out to God for an answer on how to stop this from happening. I turned my truck around and went back home and confronted my husband about his leaving right then. I called KSBJ and spoke with Joey and Copellia and explained to them what was happening, they prayed with me right then. I called his mom and she and his father were praying as well. When he returned from the store I sat and talked to him. I felt like God was giving me the exact words at the right moment to speak them as I told him that I would not let him go without a fight and that we stood in front of God and family and friends and made a promise to each other and he was not going to get out of those promises so easily. God intervened in what was the worst day of my life and He turned Greg's heart around and gave him the desire to fight for us along beside me. Thank you God for your all mighty power to save a dying marriage. Grag promised to give 110% to our marriage and things have been better than they ever have since June 1, 2012. I do ask that you all continue to pray for us as we are on a journey that will be long. I know that through Christ who gives us strength we will get through this together. Thank you all for your prayers for us. In Christ Love, Teresa T.

Thank you to all who prayed for us yesterday!! Things did not go quiet like we wanted,but I'm not sure we ever expected my ex to agree to anything either. So, it looks like we will be going to court. I really don't want to go this route. Please pray that we can get this all settled out of court. I only want what is best for my child and I know the court system doesn't care about what is truly best for her. Unfortunately, we feel like we were mislead by our lawyer and didn't find this out until we were already in the middle of all of it. I am lost,confused, and very worried for my daughter. Her father has now indicated that he will be taking his MONTH LONG SUMMER visitation. He has never done this before and I am sure he cannot take off a month from work, so she will be left in the care of strangers, while I sit at home and worry about her. Please pray that he is unable to take this whole month or chooses to leave her in my care instead of strangers.

I have currently split up with my daughters step father and I find myself struggling while he enjoys life. I carry much regret and hurt. I question why he hasnt bothered to contact me, why he sinply doesnt care for a child we both raised. Im hurt and seek answers in which I know I will never receive. Both him and I are immature and continued a relationship that should of ended long ago, through the time period of us being together we revolved our life in nothing but arguements and hatered. This break up is for the best, I know this I just wish I was stronger and over come this. Thank you all...and especially those who prayed for me yesterday. Your prayers meant so much to me. Thank you.

On May 2 I posted a prayer request. Was laid off from ExxonMobil Sept 2011 at age 54. Thur I went for an interview via a temp agency and it went great. This morning the temp agency called and said the company wanted me to start this coming Mon. It's only temp thru July but there may be a slight chance it goes to temp to hire. Better than unemployment at least...thanks to all who said they prayed for me.
May 03, 2012
Thank you for all the prayers. The day after I sent in my request for prayer, my sister's boyfriend was arrested on assault. My sister finally realized she couldn't take care of the boys in that environment, and contacted my mother to try and turn herself and the boys in. Although it didn't happen until last night, mainly because her boyfriend came home and interceded. I can say happily, that the boys are back with me and unharmed, and my sister is looking for treatment. Thank you for your prayers again.

PLEASE pray for our family friend Alec, because he's in the hospital. He was admitted into the hospital because he couldn't walk the day before. Today they found he had a spinal birth defect that no one knew he had, which caused a blood clot to fuse with his spine. This means that he may be temporarily or permanently paralyzed. So PLEASE pray for him to make a complete recovery and for the blood clot to be fused with his vertebrate or cartlidge, and to not be fused to his spinal cord. He's only 16 or 17 years old, & his brother and him live with their Aunt and cousin because the mother can't raise them properly, and their dad isn't in their life. The brother's struggling with this diagnose for his baby brother, Alec whom he cares for so much. So PLEASE pray for his brother to be strong & for God to help him too. Alec's going to be a senior this next year, just like me, and he's just starting a new chapter in his life, so PLEASE pray for his complete recovery. Wouldn't it just be amazing if he was healed on Easter! Anyways keep their family in your prayer for a long time because they'll need it. PS. I'll keep y'all posted. Thanks for reading this, and praying for their family and for Alec, & PLEASE CONTINUE PRAYING FOR HIM. One Day Later: he's really scared and needs all the prayers he can get to keep going on. They've done an MRI on him, but they haven't got the results back yet. Day 2: The doctor's plan of cleaning the blood clot out of his artery, this Good Friday, so please pray that everything goes well, and that he recovers fully. Friday: he went into surgery at 9:00am to get the blood clot or whatever it was out, and it wasn't fused to his spine like how they thought it would be. Saturday: The surgeons were able to successfully remove the blood clot or mass. Monday Night: Now it's just wait and see, he's beginning physical therapy and he won't be able to finish his junior year of high school. It may take up to three months to get the feeling back in his legs, and to be able to move them. They aren't sure if he'll walk again, or if he'll make a complete recovery for now though he's still in the hospital room, looking up at a ceiling, lying flat on his back. So please pray he makes a complete recovery and that he can do more stuff in the hospital, and that he's not so bored. He's going to be moved into a Rehabilitation center soon.

April 10, 2012
Thank you God for prayers answered and thank God for KSBJ and people like you who take time out to pray for strangers. I asked for prayers for my daughter. She was very distraught last Thursday about missing a doctor's appointment (she is fighting depression and alcoholism). God is working in her life. She was not only able to work things out with her doctor, but she has also decided to check herself into a hospital for treatment. Her spirits are high and she is excited about this step she is taking. She knows that she is not taking this step alone. I continue to pray daily that God give her the strength and emotional well being to break free of these demons that attack her. Jesus raise Jirius daughter, and he will raise my daughter too.
April 10, 2012

On January 18, 2012 my 20 month old grandson, Derrick ingested some Old English Funiture Polish. He then vomited and aspirated the polish into both lungs. On January 19th he was rushed from Victoria to Driscoll Hospital in Corpus Christi in critical condition. After many weeks in the PICU at Driscoll, Derrick was transfered to a floor for one week. On March 4th Derrick came home with us without any further complications. Derrick spent a total of 8 weeks in the hospital. When family and friends asked how they could help, i requested prayer. I asked my KSBJ family also to pray. I strongly believe it was the prays that saved Derrick's life. I would like to thank everyone that prayed for Derrick. F.R.O.G.

I wanted to send an update on two prayer requests. Several months ago, I requested prayer for my sister who had just found out she had cancer - a rare kind and was in stage three. She went through extensive treatment that was very painful for her. The doctors had hoped to just get the tumor to shrink enough to be removed. God in His mercy decided that something else was better. She got test results back yesterday and the cancer is gone, completely gone. No sign of it anywhere. It is a total miracle. The second prayer request was earlier this month regarding my son and daughter in law. My son found a job and the finances are being taken care of. They still need a new place to live but we are depending on God to provide that as well. God is good - all the time - He is good. Thanks for all the prayers.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. (Psalm 118:29 NIV) Thank you for all your prayers. My results came back with low grade dysplasia, which is very good news. I just have to do follow-ups yearly. Thank you everyone for your prayers, God is Good.
February 17, 2012
I spoke with my friend Bridgett after their oncology appointment yesterday. The Dr. feels that it could be stage 3 instead of the previous diagnosis of stage 4. Steve will be having bone scans to make certain that it's not spread further, so continued prayer for them would be great. I'm so glad to hear that he might be in a better position than we thought.... It has to be all the prayers!!! My husband had his port successfully put in last Thursday and had his first IVIG treatment yesterday. He was also given steroids to help him get healthy. We are praying he wont have to go on more antibiotics again. He's had 1 hour infusions of antibiotics daily for 2 months and it has taken it's toll.
February 14, 2012

Several months back, after being in a dark place for a really long time I had a renewal of faith, the Lord was just placing people all around me as if to say " I am still her, I never left". I started praying daily, listening to KSBJ daily. I prayed for everything and everyone. I have a 20 year old son who was a very out spoken atheist, He is now a believer, there IS power in prayer. The Lord is working all around me and it is just amazing, such a turn around in my family, everyone just bursting with faith and rejoicing and praising the Lord. Thanks KSBJ for all of the uplifting music that keeps me going on those long nights at work, Thank you my sweet Lord for hearing my prayers and working so much in my life.

Jenny went to court this morning and the judge has allowed a reset of the court date. Now, we just need to find a lawyer we can afford. Her new date is April 16th, so I will probably be asking for prayers again at that time. Thank you so much for your help in prayer. May God bless you all.

I have to say that when you are trying to put God first in your marriage it can be a battle because if that one person does not see the need to pursue God days can look dim. But having someone intercess for you through pay who can stand against. My husband has agreed to paying tithes and also trusting more in God by listening to his messages. He has stated that he is struggling with wanting to read but I have been there before as well but I hoping in everything and resting in the promises God has had for me since I was formed in the womb. Keep YOUR head up God listens!

Cindy prayed for me when there were no prayer volunteers available on duty and her will to do the works of God healed the pain in my ear. I will be the one who returns to say thank you to Jesus for his healing. Thank you KSBJ for your stewardship.
December 30, 2011
I have to start by saying faith without works is dead. I have been struggling for the past month feeling under the weather. I went to God asking for a healing from the ear pain I had and in return I found that there was more to me that needed healing than my physical pain. I realized that I had never really trusted God unless I had some worldly fact to support his Word. But God stands alone. When the truth was placed on my heart with the one question ,"Is my grace sufficient for you?", and I knew that the ear pain was a way to get me to listen to him. I can laugh about it now because now I am listening and now that I want to listen I feel that life is easier and he knows my every thought and need. I called in to KSBJ and she (forgive me for not remembering her name) interceded for me and I received the confirmation that I was never supposed to do this alone. Thank you God for you Jesus, grace, and KSBJ.

On 12/19 I posted my prayer request. On 12/21 a neighbor of my sister's was home and spotted my sister getting some things from the house while no one was home. He called the cops and my bro-in-law and just chatted with her as if all was ok. She put up no fight while being evaluated at a local mental hospital for about 7 hours. Although she did stay at a hotel that night, she kept her promise to see her own therapist the next day and did go back home and spent Christmas with her two children and husband. God is sooo good! Continued prayer for my sister is of course requested that she keep up with therapy and will return to work soon (her company will take her back with open arms! :) ). Thank you all for your prayers! Amen

A few months ago I posted several prayer requests for my friend Shawn. I recieved such an overwhelming outpouring of prayer. I just wanted to write to give an update. Shawn and I had a long talk the other day as he told me how he realizes he has to make the choice to be happy every day. He is making the choice to say no to cocaine and self-injury, both which are year-long addictions. He is still drinking, but not to the extent he was. His attitude has turned around. He says he refuses to live in the past and wallow over the sadness. Thank you so much for the prayers. It is only by His grace that Shawn Patrick has been able to turn things around.

I requested prayer for my brother Glenn back in april. He has been living on the streets of Santa Cruz,Ca. for the last 6 months and addicted to meth. Every night the last thing I have done is pray for God to protect him & every morning as soon as I awoke there were prayer request notices on my e-mail. I would always feel a little relief knowing there is a community praying for him also. The prayer request quit coming in on my e-mail about 10 days ago (I have them all saved) and I started feeling more concerned. Yesterday I received a call from a treatment facility letting me know he has been approved for treatment & while on the phone with the intake dept. an e-mail popped up on my computer screen with a prayer notice. The e-mail had been sent to me at 6:22am , but not forwarded to me until 11:45am... while I was on the phone & thanking God.

After several days of not being able to sleep. I decided to post my situation and request prayers for my mom and I.Not being able to sleep for days, for no reason, is a very irritating experience.

My mother and I were able to reconsile our sleep on the first night!. I did not even know that people had prayed!! thank you very much! God bless everyone, and God bless this wonderful station/website for such wonderful opportunity and for being part of God's amazing work! I will pray for everyone in this site from now on! thanks alot!

I added my father's name to the prayer board years ago and have been praying for reconciliation, healing and restoration between my brother and my father and myself and my father. Not only have I had lunch with him, he talks about prayer, (before he said he wasn't sure he believed) AND in a public restaurant with tears streaming down his face he said that he needed to ask for our forgiveness for leaving the family 34 years ago. He also said that he needed to work things out with my bro stating, I need to see my son, I want to put my arms around him and tell him I love him. And from what I've heard, they have had several phone convos!!! God answers and is still in the miracle making biz~!
November 09, 2011
Heartfelt thanks to those who helped pray for my son yesterday!! A raise (at his job) he had been waiting for was approved within hours of my posting the prayer request. God is good.

Thank you, Jesus for hearing & answering our prayers!!

A few months ago I sent a prayer request for Wendy,she was diagnosed with cancer. Wendy passed away last Thursday and went home to be with our Father in heaven. She fought a tough battle for several months but the cancer spread to her brain and she fought as long as she could but her body was ready for rest and she was ready to go home. Please pray for her loved ones and dear friends who loved her very much. Thank You and God Bless you all.

I became an over-the-road truck driver in March of this year. While on the road, I found that my relationship with my long-time girlfriend had been destroyed by it. She was all I ever wanted, needed, and knew to be real in my life. I came back from a 2 month long trip full of nothing but sadness to find that I was asked to move out of our home. I was thankfully welcomed back into my father's home while I was home and could try and straighten out my mind. I had everything I own in my pickup truck, along with my two dogs whom I've had for years (my only "kids" - dog owners know what I mean). My second day there, the smallest dog got out of the yard. I drove the neighborhood for hours screaming his name and asking anyone I saw on the street if they'd seen him. No one had. I sat in the living room and said out loud "I can't do this anymore. God forgive me for what I have to do." I wrote a note to my family telling them that I loved them and asked them to not try and find me, and to try and forgive me. I left the note underneath my wallet, grabbed the car keys and headed for the front door. I had everything planned out to do the unthinkable. My hand was inches from the door knob, when there was a knock at the door. It was a lady asking if my Dad had lost a dog. I just about lost it right there. Sure enough, she had my dog. He was no more than 10 yards away from home the entire time, scratching at the wall to get back to me. This was my sign that God was listening. God saved me from myself. A few days later, while back on the road, I found a pastor driving the parking lot of the truckstop I was at to re-fuel. I stopped him and asked if he would speak with me, because I was still very confused about what had happened to me. He took one look at me, layed his hand on my forehead and prayed for me. I stopped by later in the evening for services, and have never felt so welcomed by total strangers. So, long story short - for all you Big Truck drivers - keep in mind that God is there to help in your time of need. Safe trip Driver...

Thank you to all who prayed for the Santa Fe HS Marching Band at their first UIL competition to be able to qualify for Area and then State. Unfortunately they didn't advance to Area. There were a lot of things that went wrong, from the clock being stop too soon, one Color Guard member twisted her ankle so bad that when we looked at it we feared it was broken due to how swollen it was. Although we were all greatful for how cool the weather was, but the wind didn't help and it overcame a lot of the musicians and color guard members. When you do everything in the hot weather, and then it gets cold and windy, the body is not used to it. Yet, we praise God for this opportunity. They are still the Pride of the Tribe, and although marching season is over they are all looking forward to concert season. Thank you again for all your prayers. God bless you always!
October 06, 2011

I asked to be prayed for in July because I was let go from my job that I was not really happy at anyway. And my prayers were answered better than I could have imagined, I got a job as a office manager, have learned more than I had at the 2 months at the previous job, and at first it was through a temp agency, but they are talking about bring me on full time. It was so much more then I could hope for, but I guess when we put it in God's hands, he really does take care of his children. I now have a position that is only 3 miles from my home, that is about the same rate as I was getting paid and the hours still from 8am to 4:30. What more could I ask for!
September 26, 2011
I had asked for prayers concerning a job. I currently have a full time job with decent pay, but was offered a job at a casino with about double the amount of money of what I am making now. I know God doesn't like gambling, so I was very concerned about working in a casino, in that type of environment. After all of your prayers and my prayers- it has been answered!!! I will NOT be taking the job at the casino. They contacted me and said they have changed their mind and they are going with a different candidate! I feel so relieved and at peace. I know God must have not wanted me to go down that path, even though it was alot more money. I am confident that God will bless me at my current job and I need to be thankful that I have a full time job that I love. Thank you all so much for your prayers!!!

The radiologist couldn't find any sign of the 3 1/2" inch abnormality that had been present on my mammogram 3 weeks ago! So he ordered another mammorgram and it was clear also! He said that all I needed to do was go back in 6 months for another follow up. Thanks be to God! I've been praying that what ever was there would be healed by time I had to go back in and God answered my prayers! Thanks to all of the awesome prayer warriors that were praying for me!

I have had major problems with my friend C for awhile now. I have gone and made amends as best I can and I hope he can forgive me. At one time we were the best of friends, but now a rift divides us. The tectonic plates in my head have been shifting, causing a rift in the system. It makes my head hurt. I want it to stop. Today, I have apologized and done what I could to help fix the problem. I want C to know I honestly love him and would never intentionally do anything to cause him harm. He means the world to me. We are both Christians, and Satan has been getting in the middle of our friendship for awhile. I am in great pain over all of this. Please pray for me and C's relationship (or lack thereof) and pray that God puts a better ending to this tragic story. I want C to be my friend again, don't know if this is possible. It is up to him. God Bless C. Thank you. D

A few weeks ago I sent in a prayer request. I was at the end of my rope, financial we were struggling and working so hard to keep are heads above water, but we were sinking. I ask for prayer for my children, for marriage and for our financial situation. I am not sure sent me the email but she prayed for our family and said she was going to send our prayer request out to others. Well I am so blessed to report that last week my husband received a job promotion at work and a raise! It has been 6 years since his last raise! Thank you Jesus. I would have been grateful enough to receive the one blessing, But last night I found my husbands long lost sister whom we have been searching for, for the last six years! I just want to thank every that prays for all of us, who reach out in our darkest hours begging for gods grace. Thank you he really does he our prayers when they are multiplied by so many. Our lives have been changed, and I feel like everything is falling into place. Tonight my husband will talk to his sister for the first time in his life, its going to be a glorious moment. I knew that surrendering to Gods glory, would be the turning point of my life and he has held us through it all.

August 20, 2011
I had asked for prayers for my dog Buttercup who had an extremely aggressive cancer. I was so amazed at how many emails I received about people praying for her and my family - Thank you all so much, I cannot tell you how much that means to us. Unfortunately, Buttercup never recovered, and just kept getting worse, In less than three weeks after her diagnosis we had to put her down. However, Thanks to all of your prayers, this was a rather peaceful experience. I had great fear about having to make this decision ever since it was a possibility. I was terrified that I would make the wrong decision; either I would let her suffer too long, or I would put her down too soon when she may have made a recovery. I just want to tell you all Thank You So Much, because even though it was an extremely sad experience, everything worked out very well. It's hard to explain, but it just seems like everything fell right into place in order for me to make this decision. There were things that could have easily gone wrong, but they did not due to little tiny things that seemed insignificant at the time, but later we saw how they played such an important role in all this. Anyhow, we were able to make the decision and be confident that we were making the right one. As much as we miss her, we are comforted every day knowing that God is taking care of her now. On the very last day of her Earthly life, we found a little heart-shaped speckle on her toe. I cried when I found it because I knew this was God telling us that she would be OK, and that He loved her dearly. Thank you all so much, you helped get us through a terrible nightmare and make it a peaceful memory in the end. God bless you all. I will always be checking this board and praying for all of you as well.
August 17, 2011

I had previously submitted prayer request about David Daniel and Johnathan who are three brothers serving in afghanistan. As I am sure many of you are aware of the attact that took place with the helicopter that killed about 30 people including our soldiers. Daniel was in the helicopter behind the one that was shot down and I am updating this request that we keep praying for these men daily and for there brothers in God while they are serving over seas. I am asking for those who are praying to pray for their faith and that they keep in mind that they can do anything through Christ who has thus far given them strength and protection to carry on safely while serving in such a dangerous war. Our family is thankful for those of you who are praying for these men and our entire military while they have chosen to protect us and stepped up to such a task during a faith challenging time in their young lives, I know if we continue to pray theyre faith will continue to thrive in their hearts and their minds and I believe that through the power of prayer and in Jesus' name they will come home safe.

I have been a minister all my life in Africa. Relocating to U.S. in 2005, I met and married an American sister in Christ who convinced me that God revealed to her that I was to be her husband. She motivated me to pursue my life dream to study law. It was difficult to gain access but I succeeded to gain admission to a law school in Florida. Amazingly, she divorced me immediately I enrolled in school - during 2nd semester. U.S. immigration quickly placed me on removal proceedings, because my spouse refused to show at an interview session. I took a leave of absence; returned to Texas. No home, no car, no job, threatened with removal from U.S. I requested for KSBJ to pray with me 2 times. God answered progressively. I secured a job, a good car, a good residence, and just last weekend August 05, 2011, the Homeland Security approved my immigration request as Permanent Resident. Praise the Lord God who listens! Please pray that God supply me funds to register in November 2011, to go back in Fall 2012 to continue my law studies. Thanks immensely. Sam
August 07, 2011
thank you to everyone for their prayers for my sister. She had lost her job as a teacher and she has two little boys and a husband that contributes very little. God is good, He got my sisters job back and my brother in law is contributing more financially.
August 04, 2011
I just wanted to share that God does answer prayer! My uncle had a lump of tissue in his throat somewhere. He went to the doctor and they told him it might be cancer. He went back a few weeks later and it had grown some so they decided to do surgery to get it out. He went through surgery last Wednesday and did wonderfully! Praise the Lord! Even after removing it though, they still don't know if it's cancer or not. Pray that it isn't.

Exciting news! Our daughter and son n law have moved back to Houston!! They were married last year and living in Plano. They decided a few months ago to take a leap of faith and make the decision to move back home. They both put their notices in at work and prayed for God to lead them to jobs. I am so happy to share with you that they are now moved and both with jobs. They are currently in training for both jobs and starting new careers!

Just wanted to share a wonderful story about my aunt. She was told by her doctor that she had a tumor the size of an orange on one of her ovaries (she had ovarian cancer years ago) and that she needed to have it removed. When the doctor went in to remove it, there was nothing there!! He said the had no explanation for it, but that it was gone! My mom and I both knew exactly what had happened to it!!

Thank you to everyone who prayed for me and my community as our world was submerged in flood waters. After months of stumbling threw the feet of water and mud the sun came out and the rain stopped. The storm that took the lives of the ones that stood in its path is over. Now I am listening to ksbj and the words are smoothing the emotional scars the rain left in my heart. "when all hope is gone and I've been wounded in the battle he has all the straight that I will ever need; he will carry me." He has been carrying all of us and I have seen the affects this trial has had upon my small world. Tears yes but also something else, the strengthening of faith. Our God is great and nothing, nothing can pull us from his arms.

I just wanted to let you all know that getting the emails at random times reminded me that prayer really does work. I seemed like very time someone prayed for me, or everyday I got that email, I was given an interview. I worked very hard to get a job, and I am now to start with Wal-Mart on Monday. Actually I have a second offer with HEB that I am trying to decide which I should take. But at least now I have offers to choose from, and I know that with more hard work God will help me get all my bills caught back up. Thanks again.

I have so much to say and wanted to take this opportunity to speak to all! Last year My Husband was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer at only 35. In the very beginning he was given on 6-9 months before treatment and the doctors at MD said the treatment has to work. I want to invite you all, as we approach the one year mark of My Husband's diagnosis, to read and follow our blog. I started it a while ago, but when he was diagnosed, I started using it for theraputic reasons and away I went. I hope our journey will touch you. You dont have to have Cancer, but I want you to know that GOD is in your life at alll times as along as you allow him and you have complete faith. Our journey is not over yet, but as of our current visits and reports yesterday, Hubby's Cancer is shrinking at a fast rate and his Doctors call him a miracle. GOD has been our navigator this entire time. He has allowed us to sulk, have doubt and fear, but always reensures us that he is just a "knee-mail" away... I hope you enjoy my blog and our journey --- http://thelcsoapbox.blogspot.com/ GOD Bless you ALL -- Lyndie

In March, the school district for which I worked informed me that I was being laid off due to budget cuts at the end of the school year. I began going on job interviews in April, but soon became discouraged because I never received any job offers. In May, I placed a prayer request on Prayer Works through KSBJ. I received so many email alerts that people prayed for me. I was really touched that so many people interceded for me. I have to admit that at times I struggled with my faith; it's really easy to become discouraged in this economy because so many people are looking for work and so many teachers have been laid off recently. Nevertheless, I prayed each day and read God's promises in His Word. In my prayers, I was very frank with God. I told Him that I was willing to work. I told Him that I did not want to be a burden to the government/tax-payer by collecting unemployment. I told Him that I did not want to be a burden to my parents even though they offered to help me financially until I found gainful employment. I asked that God would bless me with a job before I received my last paycheck in August from the school district. After 9 interviews, the Lord blessed me with a job a week ago (July.) He even went so far as to bless me with a job as a director of a church preschool. Honestly, I never imagined myself being a preschool director, but the Lord's plans are bigger and better than anything that I could have planned for myself. The best part of it all is that I begin August 1st so I will not have to go one month without a paycheck. God is so wonderful! I am so thankful to Him. He has been so faithful to me. He answered all of my prayers in His perfect timing. I feel very blessed to have found a job in this economy so soon. I can't even really say that I was ever "unemployed," and instead look at these past 2 months as my usual teacher summer vacation. I am very thankful to everyone who prayed for me. I hope that if you are reading this and you are going through any trials in your life that you won't give up hope. God is faithful. Submit your desires to Him through prayer and trust that He will answer. "And Jesus answered them, 'Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believe that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." --Mark 11:22-24 (ESV)

I know God provides and there is POWER IN PRAYER!! Thank you Lord :)

Only 3 weeks after KSBJ listeners started praying for my son, he was offered, and accepted, an entry level engineering job. He had been looking for 7 months since graduation, but it took only 3 weeks of prayer help to accomplish what he could not do by himself. Thanks be to GOD.

I requested prayer last week for my boyfriend & I for him to have clarity of the mind when it came to us because he said he loved me very much but at times he felt that we should just be friends and at times he felt that i was his everything -- well on Sunday he broke things off but still claims he loves me very much. I also asked for prayer for him to find a job - he got one on Friday.

MY NAME IS MICHAEL CAMP. I HAVE A CONDITION CALLED LUPUS ANTICOAGULANT SYNDROME. I WANT TO FIRST EXPLAIN HOW I CAME TO FIND THIS OUT. I WAS DRIVING HOME TO PICK UP MY WIFE ON OUR ANNIVERSARY ABOUT 13 YEARS AGO. A GENTLEMAN RAN A STOP SIGN AND I COULD NOT STOP FAST ENOUGH. ABOUT 3 HOURS LATER I WOKE UP IN THE E.R. AFTER A BIT I FOUND THAT MY RIGHT FEMUR WAS BROKEN AND THEY HAD TO INSTALL A 13MM BY 21INCH ROD WITH HARDWARE TO HOLD EVERYTHING TOGETHER. AFTER MY WIFE'S HELP I WAS ABLE TO GAIN NEAR COMPLETE MOBILITY AS WE HAD NO INSURANCE TO COVER REHAB COSTS. FROM THAT POINT FORWARD MY LEG ALWAYS SWELLED UP FROM THE KNEE DOWN BUT THE DOCTORS SAID THIS WAS NORMAL FROM THE TRAUMA. AFTER DEALING WITH THIS SITUATION FOR ABOUT 8 YEARS THE PAIN JUST BECAME MORE THAN I COULD HANDLE. AFTER A VISIT TO THE E.R. WE FOUND OUT I HAD A FINGERTIP SIZED BLOOD CLOT WHICH WE FOUND TO BE CAUSED WHEN MY BROKEN FEMUR HIT THE VEIN IN MY LEG DURING THE ACCIDENT. AFTER ABOUT 1 WEEK IN THE HOSPITAL AND THEN ABOUT 3 MONTHS ON BLOOD THINNER THE CLOT WAS FOUND TO BE GONE. THE LEG NEVER STOPPED SWELLING UP BUT WHEN I WOULD REST IT WOULD GO DOWN QUITE A BIT. 3 WEEKS AGO WE WENT TO PINE SPRINGS BAPTIST CAMP FOR A WEEK. MY FAMILY GOES THERE EVERY YEAR BUT THIS WAS MY FIRST VISIT. IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING. THE LATER PART OF THE WEEK MY LEG NEVER WENT DOWN. WE JUST DWELT WITH THE PAIN TIL OUR RETURN HOME. I WENT TO WORK THE NEXT DAY AND THE PAIN WAS NO LONGER TOLERABLE. WE WENT TO THE E.R. AND THEY FOUND THE CLOT GREW TO NOW GREATER THAN 6 1/2 INCHES LONG AND I ALSO NOW HAVE A CLOT BEHIND MY KNEE. NOW, WITH NO INSURANCE I NEED A 60 TO 80,000 DOLLAR SURGERY. OUT LORD IS A GREAT PHYSICIAN BUT THE DOCTORS WILL NOT EVEN TALK TO ME WITHOUT INSURANCE AS I DO NOT HAVE THE KIND OF CASH FLOW IT TAKES TO PAY ALL THESE DOCTORS. THE FUNNY THING IS THE STATE SAYS I MAKE TOO MUCH TO HAVE LBJ DO THE PROCEDURE AS WELL. I ASK FOR PRAYER AS WELL ANY HELP AVAILABLE, DOCTORS, E.R., CHARITY, ETC. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS!

A few weeks ago I posted a prayer request for fund raising and reasonable air line tickets to participate in the annual Out of the Darkness overnight walk organized by American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We were able to purchase reasonable airfare and reached our fund raising goals in time for the event that happened on June 4 - 5, 2011. Thank you to all who lifted us up in prayer. The walk was very moving and helpful for our grief process. It is so rewarding to be able to help others who suffer from depression and try to bring the stigma of suicide out of the darkness so that they can live long productive lives. Thank you so much!

Please pray for me and my children. We are having a really hard time and I feel lke I have no joy. I'm still reading my bible, but I feel like I'm not living what I'm taking in. I have recently been accepted into RN (Nursing) school and I have two children (3 & 8 years) by myself. I was laid off and unemployment has ended. Everything is behind and financial aid for nursing school is frozen. I think I'm so overwhelmed and stressed that it is affecting me. I know worrying isn't having faith...I'm really trying. I'm tryng to work for anybody I can doing whatever I can, but both kids are home for the summer. I have to pay for school and 26 books very soon and our bills are late. I feel bad for my kids. I'm doing the best I can and I'm a very hard worker...when there is work. PLEASE pray for peace and joy for me...and financial blessings wouldn't hurt. Thank you. God bless.

We thought that my aunt was going to die because of blood loss after having a c-section but she and her baby are doing great now. The doctors called it a miracle that they both survived. They said she had the third most deadly condition a pregnant woman could have. They both should have died. But God saved them!

KSBJ prayed for my marriage to be restored and especially my wife Alicia. While my marriage did not survive divorce, I found a complete peace in that I did all I could through counseling, prayer and God's grace to restore and reconcile with my wife. I don't understand why my wife did not wish to go to marriage counseling or even sit down and discuss issues, but I do know that through all the pain and tears, God gave me a still heart and one day in Heaven I will understand how two Christians could not commit to one another through "thick and thin". God Bless and thanks to all KSBJ followers that offered prayer, Henry

I submitted my prayer request a little over a week ago, and already blessed to report that it was answered! I am participating in wwww.theovernight.org and requested prayer for reasonable airline tickets and fund raising. I was able to purchase the airline tickets last week at a fair price and this morning I had donations that brought me enough funds to meet the minimum fund raising requirement to allow me to participate. I was also blessed with a successful garage sale this weekend that helped us raise funds as well. God is good, and thank you for lifting up my requests and praying for me and my family. God Bless!

I just have to share this, I am so grateful. First, let me say that I took the KSBJ 30 day challenge about five years ago, and never looked back! If my radio is on any other station, someone else put it there. I now feel lost if I don't have a daily dose of KSBJ songs to feed my soul. In January of 2011, I went to my very first Brown Bag concert at Chick-Fil-A in Conroe and after the concert I prayed with one of the prayer volunteers. During our prayer, to my surprise the lady asked God to send me a dream to comfort me. I went home all excited, and the enemy kept me awake until 2:00 a.m. to prevent the dream from coming. After about five days, just about the time I relaxed and stopped thinking about it, I awoke one morning and immediately knew that I had "the" dream. It was so very different from usual - in the dream, my uncle, who went to heaven in 1998, was holding me in a comforting way as one would hold a child. I'm 52 years old, and this was my very first specifically answered prayer - what an experience!! Thank you KSBJ, thank you prayer volunteers, and thank you Jesus from the bottom of my heart.

This Lent I've struggled. I wanted to grow in my faith but was met with several obstacles, all very worldly and trivial. I finally gave it up to God and asked Mary, Jesus' perfect mother, to lead me into a deeper love for her Son. She did. I am more in love with Christ and I have found a tremendous faith community with my...wait for it...CO-WORKERS! I work at a secular job, but they pulled through and showed me the way! Kudos, God, I did NOT see that one coming! Thanks be to God and all of the Saints and angels for watching over my ever weak soul. I so look forward to celebrating the resurrection of Christ and His triumph over death.
