THIS website sometimes is all that keeps me going! I posted it on this site a while back and am still receiving prayers! It means so much to me! So so much! Sometimes I will wake up in the morning so down in my soul, then receive an email that someone has prayed for me. It Really lets me know that God is still here!

I want to thank God first for my salvation, and I also want to thank him for giving me a job, after 13 years of being a stay home mom. God gives me another chance. I was able to go back to school and become a nurse, and was able to find a job by God's grace and mercy. Our God is awsome. I will forever be thankful to the Lord. I also thank everybody who prayed for me. May God bless you all. I love you all.

My brother came through in buying the plane tickets for us to come to NY for my brother in-laws funeral. However, because of hurricane Sandy, we will not be here for the funeral as I have to be back at work on Thursday, the day the funeral was moved to. My husband has drawn away from me during this time and because of this our marriage is now on the rocks. Lovely isn't it? Thank you for your prayers as I still could use them.

I am so excited to bring good news, I Have overcome by the blood of the lamb and the words of my testimony. My husband and I have reconciled. My husband left my children and I the week of Christmas 2011, and he separated himself from us. It was the hardest time of my life, but God began to work in me, he showed me his grace and mercy and every promise came true. I had to be obedient to his word, and not conform to the earthly but relate to life in the heavenly. God is not the author of Confusion! I had to recognize Satins devices and not exalt anything over the word of God. If you are going through troubles, my first proclamation is hold fast...joy comes in the morning. Stay close to the word, burry it in your heart, when the enemy brings you something contrary to what the word says, take hold of your shield of Faith and your double edged sword and slash through his lies with the truth of the word! Speak those things that are not as though they are! I fasted and stayed in constant prayer, at times, it may seem as though things are getting worse, but do not be deterred, by unanswered prayer, speak to your mountain and tell it to move, never give up an Gods Promise, because he will not make a fool out of you!!! I wanted to give up so many times, as prayed for my husband and he would act even worse, but with God's grace I was able to stand in the gap and intercede in behalf of my husband. Pray that God softens the heart of your prodigal, in order to be guided by the Holy spirit! All things are possible through God. Forgive your spouse; don't let anything get in the way of your light shining through to them! Let's be in agreement that God will bring your spouse home, father we ask you Lord for strength to continue to stand for our marriages, in your name we pray, Amen! Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

About a month ago I asked for prayers for my pup- he has really had a rough patch and I appreciate all those who have prayed along with us. He is on an upswing, though, but can use some continued prayers as it looks like he will need continued medication for some time and we pray his tumors will not return. He is such a special part of my days and brings so much joy to our family. Thank you for your prayers!

My husband smokes marijuana & has been addicted to pain killers for over a year now... he began pawning and selling our things & used up our savings on drugs. I found out I was pregnant & we had to move in with my parents because we could no longer afford our place because he left his job & was going to go to rehab. I was working two jobs until I was 8 months pregnant & saved up money for when I was unable to work because I'd be with an infant. He spent ALL of it. He left the rehab & kept trying to battle it on his own, but began stealing the pills from my parents (who are on disability). He got kicked out several times & promised to change, went to detox, but would come back and start the lies and the stealing again. He even stole from our little girls piggy bank. He pawned so many of our things & eventually it just got to much for my parents to handle... so they kicked him out a day before my birthday. He was living in his car for 3 weeks & ended up stealing someone elses cell phone & pawning it & got arrested... he spent almost a month in jail & it really seemed to change him for the better, he seemed like this was it... a new beginning for us all. After he got out he was going through depression & would barely hold the baby & didn't want to do anything but sleep... I found out he had smoked marijuana again & stole pills from my parents again. I don't know what to do anymore. We have all been through so much trying to help him. My 6yo daughter is in love with her father, I don't want to break her heart again... yet he is breaking all of ours. I want to trust that the lord will work in his heart & put conviction on him... let him see what he is doing to his life & the lives of the people that care about him. I know that he is unhappy & doesn't want to live this way. Please pray for the lord to change him, restore his life, let him see purpose for his life, let him see and want a beautiful future with his family. Put conviction in his heart & a will to change. Break the chains of addiction! Let God put peace in my heart & my families. Let him work on me, and show me how to let this go & let God take care of it, because I am unable to. Thank you so much.

Thank you for all the prayer support. I feel humbled and am blessed to have others praying for us. I now have a job and my husband is waiting on two different jobs. he is actually deciding which one is best! Thank you Jesus. I can not understand how He leads us through the valley and holds our hand, but he does and he sends other Chrisitians and prayer warriors to guide the path. Thank you all very much.

I am so thankful for this prayer site and just want to let everyone know that I am thankful to those who come to it and pray for those situations posted. I personally have seen God's work done through prayer. Most recently, my heart was broken because my boyfriend needed some time and it was so confusing to why. I posted it on this site and am still receiving acknowlegement of prayers. So amazing and I know this is why my relationship is healing. I have peace about our relationship now and in the future. I just ask that our relationship will bring glory to God. Thankful that God brought someone in my life that displays respect and love.

It is time for me to share my Testimony for all to see my life is an open book. God has promised me 2 million lives would be transformed by my testimony. I desire to share it with everyone. I know a few people will be disappointed or even surprised. I don't care what you think of me it is Gods opinion that counts. The fear of man is a snare that leads to death. I am not pleased with my past life, but it is my testimony. A powerful testimony at that. I have had some health care issues lately. There have been many attempts by the devil to take my life, but I am still breathing and cancer free. I would like to share this testimony to as many churches as I can. It could be in person or through email. I have only a few more weeks until my facebook partial break is over, then I plan to be more active of f acebook to help set people free from the power of sin. Here is my Testimony ...When I was around 14 years old, my sister's friend (a male friend would Here is my Testimony.... When I was around 14 years old, my sister's friend, a male friend, would touch me in way that a man should not touch a man. I was very insecure in my teenage year and most of my life. I never really had a father; he left my mom when I was 5 years old. My mother was busy being a single mother. She often worked 80 to 90 hours a week. Being insecure with myself I began to cross-dress when I was a teenager. I moved to Phoenix for a few years where I met my first wife. Times got tough so we moved to Jacksonville, Florida to live with my mother. We had our 2 children in Jacksonville, Florida. My ex-wife and family could not get along so we moved to Warsaw, Indiana. The Marriage fell apart and crumbled in Ind. During my time in Indiana I was involved in a major car accident. I broke my leg and arm at the same time. I died 5 times on the way to the hospital and in the hospital. God had other plans for me because I should be DEAD! 1 year past I managed to pay for my divorce and get custody of my two boys. I moved back to Jacksonville with them. It was there I started attending New Life Christian Fellowship. New life Christian Fellowship really helped me grow into a man of God. I was trying to go out with a Christian female. I wanted to date her because I was a lonely single father, who did not have the cross-dressing Issue resolved. God met me in my room one night. I woke up crying asked her what that was she said I was Just Born-again. I shortly after that was baptized. I felt impressed by God to attend a Bible school being held there in New life Christian Fellowship in Jacksonville Florida. I began to minister to the homeless; I gave daily lessons to a group of people that are not all there, God opened up a door for me to minister to them. I held Bible studies at work and in the trailer park in which I lived in. I have had several encounters with God during my time of growth a little over 7 years ago. I can recall a time in worship I felt a hand touch my back, when I went to see who it was, there was no one around me. I think it was Either Jesus or the Holy Spirit. I have heard the audible voice of God telling me my calling was connected to the homeless. I have had an opportunity to cast out the demon of Legend in one female. Not something you want to do by yourself. I heard God tell me I would cast out more demons in the future. To That I replied.Oh Hell no! I had dreams and visions. I had a dream once that I was climbing a tree I began to fall. When I hit the ground I could not get up. At first demons were holding me down. Then I was holding myself down. I began to slowly back slide. Sin is gradual and very slow in deceiving you. It starts out as a small seed. When sin is in fertile Ground it begins to grow slowly until it has grown to a point that is out of your control. I married my current wife things were fine for the first few years. Then I got a job that I was putting in a lot of hours. Meanwhile my wife was a stay at home mom with my son Christian who is going on 11 soon. I became quickly jealous of females. They got to stay home and the MAN had to work his Butt off. I began to cross-dress again. Other emotions and sins fell in place gradually, cussing, drinking, GD word, stopped going to church. I just totally jumped off the God wagon. For years I knew what I was doing was wrong, But if I confess to my wife she might leave me, the devil would always. To afraid that my wife might leave me I locked the secret in my heart. Came close a few time of getting caught by my wife. I was also caught one time. I had to talk my way out of that one. Still to afraid to tell her. I could not confess my sin to her because I thought, I was too deep into my sin and could not escape. My marriage was getting worse and worse. Even in those times that I was walking in THAT JUNK and in major sin, I had some rough nights. Almost on a nightly basis the devil would come to me in my sleep. I would be wide awake. I could see my room. I was paralyzed. Demons hovering all around. I could not even scream, all I could is moan. Twice even the demons choked me almost to death in my sleep. I had a talk with Satan if he did not stop it I would give my heart to God AGAIN, He stopped. All through this God has blessed my family in such tremendous ways, even though I was walking in total disobedience to God and rebellion. I knew for year my calling is the homeless( God still needs to clarify ,what and how I am to help the homeless) , I knew I was supposed to write a book called ( out of the Hands of Perversion and into the hands of God) , still plan to write that book and another Book called ( almost a wasted testimony) . I know I am to preach the word when God says that I am ready and equipped again for leadership. I plan to attend bible college again very soon (Christian counseling one of my majors as well). All these wasted 7 years of rebellion, really just broke my heart. I have been free of cross-dressing for over 6 months now and do not plan to ever do it again. When my schedule and her schedule agree we plan to seek counseling to strengthen our marriage. I even started smoking 1 ago I wanted to commit suicide but I knew if you commit suicide you go to hell. So I started smoking to commit a slow suicide, when I got cancer I could repent. I thought. Then God truly Got a hold of my heart again. I have wasted over 5 years watching people go to hell, knowing what my calling was, but I did not care. I only cared about myself. I stopped drinking, cussing, cross-dressing, smoking; I did a complete 180 or 360, you know what I mean. I went from the devil to serving God whole heartily. I have learned since then that God wants to restore me back to where I should have been. I have learned I am to preach the word, and my other Gift is encouragement. These two gifts need to strengthened before I could walk in them fully, but I am working on that. I plan to attend a bible college again. I am digging up my old degree see if it is still good, and if it is then just go for Christian counseling as a major. If not get both degrees. Now you know why I am so passionate about souls. I have wasted over 5 years walking in the devils way and not Gods way, I should have been pulling people out of hell, but no I was a fool. NO MORE! It is Gods way or no way. I have wasted too much time already. I DO NOT EVEN PLAN TO WASTE ANOTER MINUTE. I feel like God is calling me to move somewhere in a year or so. I will not tell anyone because I want God to open up the door. But I will tell you this God has partially confirmed it. This place I will be going has a high concentration of homeless people, cross dressers, and a extreme spirit of perversion. Please keep me in your prayers that God would continue to strengthen me and give me clarity of his will. Thank you. I do want to share my testimony to other churches. I will travel to any city or testify by email.

A few months ago I posted a rather request for my marriage. Satan was attacking like never before. I began claiming full restoration of my marriage. My wife and I hadn't been in same home for 3 months. We ad met to sign divorce papers. I asked her what she wanted, not what her family wanted, not what her past was influencing her to do. She said she did wants divorce. She had divorced before and didn't want to go thru it again. Through a lot of prayer and heart to heart talks, we decided to work on our marriage. I tried everything I knew to do. When I let go and let God I began and am seeing God work. Glad to report that we are back together. PRAISE THE LORD!!!!! Not saying it hasn't been work or there were/are things we are working thru, but the restoration process is underway. I have my mind set on success, victory and progress. I'm casting down anything that is negative and thoughts of fear, worry, doubt and unbelief. When I let go, I let God handle my marriage. Thanks for the prayers. Even when you don't see God, He's working His plan.

THANK YOU SO MUCH ALL THAT PRAYED FOR ME & MY HUSBAND! Never under estimate the Power of Prayer. For all that prayed for me, I wanted to share the praise report. Foreclosure was completely stopped, 3 days before it was suppose to go through. I got a last minute call this past Wednesday night saying that everything was in line for us to close. We closed today on our house, and had the remaining debt forgiven due to my husband serving our country. We sold it today on June 22, 2012. May God Bless you today and always. Your Family In Christ, The Burtons

THANK YOU all who have prayed for my daughter and her many diseases- Last weekend I took my daughter to a prayer/deliverance pastor who prayed for her healing, and she got deep and immediate relief from so many symptoms: visual problems connected to migraines - they are gone (black spots, weird lights, wavy lines in vision). A limp that she had because of crooked hips and a shorter leg, disappeared. Much chronic pain left. We were stunned. My daughter has been bed ridden on and off for almost 11 years. We of course wanted to watch and wait and see. .....in the following hours, she began to experience much dark and painful spiritual pressure, and return of so much pain - and I stayed up into the wee hours praying against the evil one, and she began to get relief. next day she called the deliverance minister and he said that satan had been attacking him too, with intense depression, since he saw her - it was very unusual for him - obviously the evil one is very unhappy that any deliverance was going on. Now she seems to be experiencing increasing well being and healing today. Of course we are pretty stunned by all this, and praying hard! If you would pray for continued spiritual protection as she continues to stand firm in her healing, we would be so thankful!
June 19, 2012
Thank you for your prayers, Randy had to have a stress test done before he could get surgery done this coming week. Failed test so they scheduled a 2nd one today. God answered those prayers. Randy passed the test. Please continue to pray about his surgery on the 25th when they remove one of his kidneys. Thank you and God Bless!

Today I posted a prayer request for my husband and myself for our business and home. 30 minutes after I posted this request, our business caught on fire. I called 911 and ran out side to wait. The fire trucks raced by us lights flashing and sirens sounding. They went to the wrong strip mall.. Might I add this was during lunch. They shut down 3 different turning lanes because they figured out they were in the wrong spot and multiple fire trucks had to turn around to get to us. I would like to add that they did a wonderful job.They where quick and efficent and my thanks go out to JSO and the Jax fire dept. I had to leave for a min a a friend stayed to let folks know what happened and air out the store I had over 12 customers that had to be turned away because of the incident. Yes I lost money and the devil is still trying but I believe this to be a good thing for I haven't had this many people in my store in one day for a while. I want to believe that God is working on ths as I always have believed. He shall take something bad and make it for the good. Please keep praying for us!
April 27, 2012
Thank you all those who prayed for me and my family. Prayer works!!! I went to doctor today and they did a sonogram of my breast and realized it was dense tissue, not a mass or cyst!!! They of course want me to come back in a few months to have another look, and have a mammogram after our child is born. Thank you Jesus! Those who prayed again thank you and bless u!

Back in February, I asked for prayer that my daughter be accepted into a magnet high school that is near impossible to get into. We were claiming the bible verse Matthew 21:22 - "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." I would like to thank each and every person from the bottom of my heart who prayed. My daughter was accepted into the magnet school. I will never be able to express the gratitude I have to each of you for your prayers. God Bless You and To God Be the Glory!

Thank you to all who prayed for my son! Back in February, my 8 year old son was given the very bad news that he may have Perthes disease (a rare bone condition that ceases the blood flow to the femur and causes the bone to die. It causes lots of pain and causes the child to have a severe limp.) My family and I were sick with the news, but reached out to this site, my parent's church, and every believer we knew. I also did a 3-day fast for healing for my son. I would like to THANK you all for your prayers! God completely HEALED my son! On April 3rd we went for his 8 week follow up with the orthopedic doctor. New x-rays were taken, and there was NO SIGN OF PERTHES!!!! I have witnessed a true miracle! We did not sit and wait idley for 8 weeks! Through prayer, the Lord directed me to take my son to a chiropracter who uses a very specialized technique of adjusting the very top bone of your spine (called the Atlas.) After the 3rd adjustment (we went once per week) my son was pain free! After the 4th adjustment, his legs began evening out (at the onset, one leg was signigicantly "longer" than the other which caused him to not be able to stand on both feet without one leg having to be bent!) My son now, after only 8 weeks, is pain free, can run and play to his heart's content, and can stand on both feet as though there was never a problem! I give God ALL of the credit! Thank you God, for being a miracle worker! This has drawn my whole family closer to God! :-)

Since April is autism awarness month and the new statics have come out 1-88. It use to be 1-10,000 before 1990's. My daughter was diagnosed with autism in 1998. I was told no hope; put her in a good home when she is grown. Do the best you can. No drugs helped my child infact she got worse. I prayed constantly without ceasing. God showed me the path. First the gluten and casein free diet and some supplements in 2002. I read a story of a boy who recovered from autism. A very prominent family with plenty of resources so I prayed to God please let this happen for my child. The power of God is more powerful than all the money in the world. Its been a long climb back up in life but everyday my daughter gets better and better. She is not cured but her quality of life is so much more hopeful than the prognoses my daughter was given in 1998. She is recovered from autism. "autism" is a medical issue not a psychological. Treat the issues vs giving drugs that mask the issues. Please continue to pray for her she turns 18 this year. And hold each child that has autism in your hearts and prayers. Also pray that each family holds together and keeps their faith in God strong through this ordeal. This has taken 11 years and is not over for us. My daughter has increased my faith in God and taught me so much more than I would have ever learned. How important and unique each person is and what strong faith can get you through. God has lead me every step of the way and when I get discouraged He conitnues to open more doors. I thank you for your prayers and keep praying for her as well. God bless you and keep you all.

Thanks to all of you who prayed! This little girl went from fatal to now being at home with her family! All the Glory goes to God and all his prayer warriors. She still has a long recovery, with her mom administering medicine via a PICC line and having to stay away from groups for 3 months because of bacteria but she's home! Thank you again to all who prayed!
January 16, 2012
Thank you for your prayers. God is doing a mighty work in my sons life. He starts a new job today. He has lost his home and his vehicle,he is staying with us, using one of my vehicles. He has started back to church and turned his life over to Jesus. He knows that God is in control, which is the most important. He still has a long way to go, but through the power of prayer, he will prevail. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.

husband has been wanting a divorce, announced on sept 19th,and has been having an affair with junior colleague at work..he persists in saying nothing happened. he is being defiant and rebellious to me, and maintains contact with her. i post updates on the promise website. there is no sign of repentence or remorse. he continues to say we are having a divorce. i have been asking for prayer to give me faith. some days i am very enabled to do what i need for my daughters and myself, but i still struggle with anger and indignation when he talks about her at home as if she were a close family friend. when i need to i call for prayer suport from friends. i know god is faithful, but my days are dark right now. i know god is able to save to the uttermost, and cold restore my husband to me, but while i wait about this answer, i am prayed through each day by my friends

So many people have prayed for my daughter and her family after I submitted a prayer request a month ago. They were struggling financially and trying to take care of their then 3 week old baby! Thanks to God, they were able to receive some help from a local church to get them thru. Through the power of prayer, my daughter and her fiance have both gotten good jobs with benefits and they both start next week! My little 7 week old granddaughter is thriving and doing great! My daughter and her fiance will be getting married in 2 weeks! Thank you so much to all of you who have prayed! Prayer really does work and I thank you for your support! Receiving the emails almost daily saying "someone has prayed for you" meant so much and gave me the extra encouragement and faith that things would get better. I passed on all the prayers to my daughter and we are so thankful to the promise listeners!

I asked for a prayer request for my children. I had not seen them in months and missed them dearly. My ex and I were going through a divorce. I asked for prople to pray for them and me in hopes to be rejoined with them. IT WORKED! In a matter of days I got to see my children. Their mother was still diffucult and I will put in a request for her to find peace. It worked for me. I now can see my children. Thank you everyone.
