Last year my son was in a heap of legal trouble for hacking into the computers at school to get on Facebook. He was expelled from school and charged with vandalism. Since that time God has worked out everything according to his plan, I believe. So many people prayed for us, I had requested prayer through WCQR and was overwhelmed by the response. My son has now graduated from online high school and is working. We hired an excellent attorney and he was able to plea bargain for 35 hours of community service. Soon he will be done with the legal system. Thank you to all who prayed for us!

I requested prayer last year for financial help. At that time, one of our children lived with us and now a second one does along with his children. I am very glad that we are able to be there for our children in their time of need. Although we'd still like to have better financial stability, I know that through the Grace of God, we'll be okay.

About a month ago my husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, which is cancer of the plasma cells in the bone (bone cancer). Multiple means that the cancer is different areas of the bones in his body. The worse area is his femur bone in his right leg. He had to have a bone biopsy done first to confirm that he had multiple myeloma. He also had to have a bone marrow biopsy to confirm the myeloma and other things the doctor looks at in order to let her know how she wants to treat it. Three weeks ago, he had to undergo surgery to put a rod in his femur to give that bone support because the bone is very thin and fragile. He is still recovering but doing well and is walking now without assistance. We have a long road ahead of us. He will be starting chemo on June 4th. They will be doing some very aggressive chemo to try to get him in some sort of remission so they can do a stem cell transplant in 6 months. The stem cell transplant is like a bone marrow transplant. They have progressed all of the treatments over the years. We have some financial difficulties on top of this and so stress is my best friend. I will continue to have faith that God is going to see us through our troubles and trials. Please keep us in your prayers.

I learned this weekend that sometimes we need to praise God in time of despair. When something is wrong we pray for Gods help. Sometimes He wants to hear you priase Him in time of your despair! You will be amazed at the relults......God needs a "curtain call" sometimes!

My husband and I were talking and he was upset that God is allowing us to go through such a hard time with finances. He was giving up on God and I said to him...."God will allow us to go through struggle so we can become stronger and closer to Him....its like joing the army..........you go through the basic training to see if you will make a good, strong, committed, loyal soldier. In training you are put to the test. Its like Gods army.....you need to stay true to God in every battle you encounter!" My husband said, "but you have to sign a paper to enlist and I never signed a paper for this!" I looked at him and said, "did you ask God into your heart?" and he smiled and walked away!
May 21, 2013
I learned this through preaching, observation, researching and praying. It's like a job.....how do you expect to get promoted when you don't commit to the job, muchless don't do it correctly to help the company. Everything is the Lords. He is our boss.....He allows us to manage His money and if we don't manage it well we get ourselves in debt......then He may not give us more to manage because we don't do a good job. The more He gives ... the more we dig the hole deeper. If we can show God that we are good stewards of His things here on earth then He will bless us with more to manage!

I asked a couple of months ago for prayers for our family as we like so many others have been dealing with financial problems. I just wanted to update that we are not completely out of the woods but are doing much better and are just taking it one day at a time. Thanks so much to everyone for the thoughts and prayers. God is good and does take care of us.

I wrote a story about my health exactly one year ago today on my daughters 3rd birthday and today is her 4th birthday. God gave me the knowledge to use something that was right in front of my eyes. I had written about kidney stones, low white blood cell count and lymph nodes flaring up. I just did not feel like it was a kidney stone. The thing that God showed me that was right in from of my eyes was something that a woman in my church showed me is Young Living Oils. I read up on a kidney infections and I applied the oils exactly as the oil bible stated and within 12 hours the infection was healing and a week later it was completely cleared up. Went in for a blood test later and my white blood cell count was up and my lymph nodes were not inflamed. Praise God and thank you so much to all of you that prayed for me.

Just an update on how I am doing- I requested prayer due to having the same chest pains I had prior to gallbladder surgery after gallbladder surgery last week. I am grateful to post a praise now. I haven't had those pains since Wednesday of last week. I am also able to start eating as before. I received many notices that someone had prayed for me and I believe it was God's healing hand the prayers of many that has healed me. I appreciate all of your prayers And WCQR for making this site available. May you all be blessed and filled with the love of Christ!

I want to thank everyone who prayed for me and my baby. I recently was told that my baby was at high risk for Trisomy 18, and was sent for a special ultrasound, after having the ultrasound everything looked ok, but my chances were still high. I decided instead of doing an amnio, that i would take a new blood test called the Harmony prenatal test, that was just as accurate as the amnio. I just found out today that my results were normal and that my baby is fine and does not have Trisomy 18. Praise God and thanks to everyone that prayed for us.

Please pray for O'Donoghue. He needs salvation and healing from sickle cell anemia. It's gotten really bad. He's only in his 30's, and I'm scared it's going to kill him. Please ask God to heal him and let him live a long time so he can live a full live. He also needs salvation. Please ask God to save both his life, and his soul. Thank you.
April 29, 2013
Thank you all very much from the bottom of my heart for all the prayer and well thoughts that were sent our way. As you may know form the news Range Ele School will be closing after this school year. Many parents, students, and faculty are very saddened by this decision and continue to need your prayers. As for my mother in which i had asked for prayers to begin with, she is still in need of a job. They have not found a placement for her yet(if any). So she is very worried and down right now. So if you would please continue to remember her as well, that would be wonderful. Again thanks so much for all that you all have already done.
April 24, 2013
Thank you all for your prayers. My daughter seems to have taken a turn for the better. She's still a teenager & faces issues but, at least she is trusting in the Lord. Her heart is tender once again.
April 23, 2013
Please pray for a man named Colin. I care very much for him, he' s so young, and may be battling cancer (Stage IV penile, it's rare, it's aggressive, and he's only 32 years old). Please pray that God will heal him. He's been battling this for a while now, but he recently learned he still has it. I am afraid, and want Colin to live a long life. Please ask God to give him total healing, a long life, children, grandchildren, and most especially, salvation in Jesus Christ. Colin needs Jesus and while I realize this may be God's way of drawing Colin to Him, I hope that there would be some other way, any other way He could do that without threatning Colin's life. God is still in the healing business, isn't he? So, why not Colin! Please ask God to heal him, and to save him. Thank you, so much for your help to pray for him.
April 20, 2013
Thanks for all the prayers GOD is faithful even when some are not.

Thank you for all that have prayed for my family. I submitted a few requests last year as we have been praying for God to bless us with another healthy chlid. We have just recently discovered that I am indeed pregnant! All things come in the good Lord's time!
April 12, 2013
I just want to say Thank You for those of you who prayed for me. On April 4, I submitted a prayer request under the heading of "Just remember me." At that time I felt that I was feeling pretty depressed at the news that the doctors had given me. Once again I slipped back into placing God in a box, doubting his love and power to heal. I want to tell you that God has answered the prayers that were prayed over me! I'm back at work; and still shining my light for the Lord Jesus as best I can. Thank You all and God Bless!
April 12, 2013
Just an update on my sister. she did great in her 12 hour surgery at Vanderbilt. She was supposed to be in the hospital for 2 weeks but thanks to prayers she is already home. she still has a long road ahead of her. Doctors took out all the cancer they seen and adminstered warm chemo in her belly to kill anything else he didn't see. she will still need to have more chemo treatments just as a precaution. please still continue to pray for her healing and that the cancer is all gone. God is the ultimate healer. Amen

Several months ago I requested prayer for my cats healing. She had a gm disease and needed all of her teeth pulled but still had trouble eating.

Thank you all so much for your prayers, she is HEALED!! I see a difference in her that I have never seen before she is actually playing and more active and eating lots of food, I know she is a miracle!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank GOD for this wonderful miracle he is a healer still today. I have been praying for her for over a year, so don't loose hope no matter what you are praying for he will answer in his timing.

Countless more said they were saved but were not walking toward the light. And they said they wanted to turn around and walk right. What an amazing weekend!! Great band-the Jason Louvins band. Look them up. Great speaker- Brent Gambrell. Great God!! Keep these kids in your prayers. They are tomorrows church. Can't wait to see what God is going to do in their lives.

Even though we lost our home God provided us with a better home. We were so scared over the 500,000 dollar ordeal. God got us over all of our fear and helped us with our current home. Thank you so much for your prayers, we are sure that they were answered at a time when our family needed help.

My friend's 2 month old son, Jack was admitted to a children's hospital Saturday morning with RSV. He has since gotten worse and has an IV and a feeding tube. He is still having a hard time breathing and his little body is getting tired. They are trying a CPAP machine now but if that does not help by tonight, he will have to be sedated and put on a ventilator. My friends have 3 other children as well and they are expecting Jack to be on the hospital at least another 4 days. Please pray for this sweet baby boy and his family!

Placed prayer request on list in November for financial help for new roof and for mortgage company to take over our home loan because the company we had was killing us. As of Saturday, March 2, 2013 both of these requests have come about. We have new roof and we closed on our home with another mortgage company with an interest rate 6% less than the other company. Praise God for his blessings. Thanks to all who prayed for me and my family during that time. I have placed two more request for help for my daughter and my sister and brotherinlaw. Continue to pray for them.

I posted a prayer request a few days ago concerning my dad. He had been passed over for promotions time and time again, and for the first time in years, he asked for me and my family to pray for him going into this interview. We had so many people praying for him through this site, and we found out he got the job! God is great!
February 19, 2013
In November I requested prayer for help. We have storm damage to our home on one occasion and the insurance company did not want to pay for replacing it. I also requested prayer for the mortgage company that had our home to do something because our rate of interest was 11.5%. As of a month ago, we have a new roof on the house and as of this week received papers from the mortgage company that has taken over our home because our previous company wanted rid of us. Our interest rate has dropped to between 5 1/2%-61/2%. Prayer was answered on both request. Thank you for all your prayers. Linda

I have to tell you a story. Many people wouldn't even believe this. I saw a man outside when I walked into CVS about a week ago. He was walking on a cane and I was on the phone, but, noticed him. When I came out he was sitting against the building and slumped over. I wasn't quite sure if it was safe to approach him, but, thought he could be in medical danger. I saw someone else that I went to school with was in another car looking at him, almost laughing at him. Something just made me stop my car. I went over to him and asked him if he was ok. He said yes, but, that he didn't feel well. I noticed that he still had his arm band on from the VA center (I was in Johnson City). I asked if I could call him a cab or something, he said no. I asked if he was hungry and he said yes. I told him to wait and I went to Bucs Deli and got him a cheeseburger fries and a drink. While I am in line waiting on food (in the car) I was thinking about that song that says give me your eyes so I can see what I have been missing, give me your love for humanity. I was trying to remember the rest of it and thinking that I must have needed to look at that man. I had the radio turned down (because I had ordered food). I turned it up and that song was on the radio (your station 88.3). I was so shocked. I was like okay God I am listening. I know he was speaking to me that day. What a clear message.

I recently requested prayer for my friend, Jennifer, who has breast cancer. She went to Vanderbilt last week for several tests. They found out its not anywhere else in her body, just the lymphnodes? Under her arms and in both breasts. It is aggressive and they told her she has a higher chance if it returning. She's going to go through 8 rounds of aggressive chemo following a mastectomy. So, all this being said, God has not allowed it spread and please keep praying that Gods will be done. She has an 11 month old baby girl and has only been married for a few yrs. Her brother also has serious health issues and they are talking about taking his colon soon if his medicine doesn't start working. Just a sad situation, but I know God is a healer and I see his miracles everyday! Jennifer has the best attitude towards all of this and still gives God all the praise. I know Gods not finished yet! Thank each of you for all your prayers! God bless you all!!

We have had a difficult time keeping my vehicle on the road and I have missed multiple days at work because of it. Our mechanic has told us repeatedly to stop putting money into repairs, but we have had no other choice. I have been driving for months with no heat, which can be dangerous when rain or fog freezes on the windshield (defrost doesn't work if your heat doesn't). My car finally died to the point of no repair just days after Christmas. I started having to leave work early in order to get home in enough time that my husband could arrive at his job on time, obviously my boss has not been happy with me lately! Then one Saturday morning our mechanic called and asked us to come see him. A gentleman in the area who was going to trade in his older vehicle decided instead to give it to a family in need. We are know the blessed owners of a "new" van that was much needed! Thank you dear Sir and Thank you Lord!

Storms I would like to tell you two true stories that have been taken straight from the pages of my life. I tell you these, not to draw attention to myself, but to draw your attention to the Lord Jesus and the power that God the Father has in his control and for us believers in him have at our disposal. Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever! When I was a child I was scared to death of storms. The very sound of thunder sent me into terror, I would find myself staring at the sky and plugging my ears as I ran as fast as I could for home. Now looking back in retrospect, I believe God was preparing me for future storms in my life that I would face as a man. The more I read in Bible the more that I am convinced this to be true. Several years ago my brother John was working in the field with the tractor. I stepped outside and could hear the sounds of thunder off in the distance. A few minutes passed as I began walking out into the field to get a better view of the mountain valley where I live, and as I walked I was watching John riding the tractor, I knew that he couldn't hear the thunder. Once out in the field looking down the valley and coming over the top of Bays Mountain black angry clouds filled with lightning appeared, and on top of that I could see trees bending way over as it topped the mountain! I began to run towards my brother, waving my arms and pointing attempting to get his attention and to warn him of the coming wind storm. John's back was to me and the tractor's motor drowned out any sound of my voice as I ran to get closer, he turned the tractor around facing me. Our eyes met and I pointed to the mountain off in the distance and John finally saw what I was seeing. The tractor's throttle was pushed forward and the sound of the motor increased in speed as we both made our way to the barn and shelter. I held the doors open as the wind and rain hit us full force with its power, and into the barn we went. Once inside, we both laid down under the tractor, with the sound of hail stones pounding like a thousand drums on the barn roof tin. The wind howled and the walls on the barn were heaving as if it was alive and breathing on its own. I began to pray and John joined in with me as we lay on the floor, with lightning and thunder surrounding us as the storm raged outside. Psalm 32:7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. The storm passed right over our heads, and as the rain and hail subsided, we came out of out from our hiding place, watching the storm continue to move down the valley. Our prayers turned quickly to ones of thankfulness and the belief that the Lord had protected us through it all! This second story I'm writing at the advice and suggestion of a friend and co-worker of mine Captain Shea Payne. He told me that he thinks it's a story that should be told and after several months of thought and consideration, I agree. I think people need to know that there is a God, and he still has power over storms! In the summer of 2011 during Kingsport's Funfest a yearly festival that our city holds for ten days during the summer months and where everyone attends concerts, balloon races, and fun games for the kids. There hundreds of things to do and attend. Little did I know at the time that I would be faced with another storm in my life, and once again would have to call upon my God to calm my nerves and those of others. The day started out as a typical hot summer day with lots of sweat and drinking lots of cold water. The crowds were large and at about twenty plus thousand strong both inside and out of the high school stadium for the Christian concert and the artist Jeremy Camp. Being an Assistant Fire Marshal during the concerts as you can imagine is to protect these crowds as best we can, providing medical assistance if needed, ensuring that we have proper egress incase we need to get everyone out in a hurry, and of course listening for orders that maybe given over the radios by our command who monitor the weather, among other things in case of an emergency and the need to evacuate. We were receiving constant updates throughout the day as the humidity was very sticky and hot, a typical summer day. The clouds began to increase along with the radio chatter about approaching storms that could affect us right at concert time. I watched the clouds turn from light to dark, and the flag at the other end of the field begin to straighten out as the wind began to pick up. The time was early evening and most of the crowd of adults both young and old along with children had already entered into the stadium. Police, Fire, and Ems teams were scattered throughout the area and in were place to escort the crowd if needed to safe areas that we have had established for years just for any type of emergency. Just like the boy scout motto of "Be Prepared" pops into my mind; so is that of protecting a very large crowd during Funfest. I've got to tell you; many has been the time that I have prayed on school property during Funfest. I've prayed for the protection of children, adults attending events for their safety and safe return home. I've prayed for Police, Fire, Ems workers, along with many city workers who are doing their jobs to support their families. Many times I have prayed right there in the midst of thousands without them even knowing it, and right there on school property. I don't do a Tebow in the end zone or anything; but I pray to a Holy and Righteous God none the less! He gives me strength, and is my all in all! The radio sounded with alerts from our Command center that very ad weather and storms were heading our way, and the need for evacuations were to take place immediately. A weather disc with commands for the crowd to hear and follow was given to the public address announcer to begin to sound over the stadium speaker system. Groans of disappointment could e hear coming from the crowd as they began to get up and leave their seats, walking towards the Dobyns Bennett Dome one of our established safe haven in case of a storm. Lightning flashed and the thunder roared outside, but everyone was seated inside the Dome all safe and dry. Police, Fire, and Ems personnel kept me informed with their smart phones updating me with weather updates as we began our stay to wait out the storm. A crowd close to five thousand plus was inside, as teams of us checked on them trying to make the best of a bad situation. I had a bull horn at my disposal and would from time to time enter into the dome to make announcements to those who could hear me, to give them weather updates, and instructions. Several people were telling me that they could not hear me with the bull horn and my batteries were starting to die after several minutes of giving announcements. To top all that off, I was now getting reports of possible tornados developing to the south of us and heading our way. I looked at the children playing all around me on the covered basketball court, and it was then I excused myself, feeling the pressure of five thousand souls weighing down upon me. I felt all alone. Stepping out side the doors and onto an outside porch that I had all to myself, I began to pray once again right there on school property. "Heavenly Father, I need your help, I asked. There are over five thousand men, women and children inside of that dome, families, Christian families that I've sworn an oath to protect. Lord I ask you in the power of Jesus name to move these storms away from us, and to protect us if it be your will." A peace that passes all understanding enveloped me, and a still small voice came to me and said this, "Barry.... Be calm your not alone, I am with you. I want you to go back inside and be with those people.....my people and I want you to witness to them in my name." My knees began to knock and my teeth chattered so hard at these words, I said but, Lord you want me to talk? There is five thousand people in there! Once again the small voice spoke to me reassuring me with these words. "I'll be with you through it all, If there ever was a group of people that you can speak in front of in my name it is this group of believers, my people." Armed with that I stepped back inside and began to ask about obtaining a microphone and having the speaker system turned on inside so that all the people could he me. After a few minutes with a microphone in my hands, I walked onto the floor of the Kingsport Dobyns Bennett Dome filled to capacity with Christian families numbering five thousand souls. I began to speak and told them about the storms. "I want to re-assure you that we are doing out best to take of you, I can't control the storms but, I know the one that can." Once again, I began to pray, this time with a great crowd of believers, God people! The warmth and peace that I felt as I stood there I will never be able to put into words. I can say as I spoke and shared my testimony with these people a lifting up of my spirit was felt deep within my soul, it felt as if I was floating just above the floor. Little did I know at the very same time I was praying Captain Shea Payne was praying in another building along with other believers in Jesus Christ. I have heard since then that a man's soul was saved that night, before the concert began, a precious soul in the eyes of God and his Son Jesus. I believe in my heart that the love of King Jesus is so great for us that he would've left his Kingdom in Glory to come and die for just one of us. That's Amazing Grace, amazing love! We didn't realize that God was working that night, and that God had a very special plan using storms for his glory and that of his Son! God came to me that night, and as long as I live, I will never ever forget that moment in my life! I can only stand and wonder at the possibility of the seeds that were sown in his name. Thank King Jesus for loving me....... Isaiah 41:13 "For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear, I will help you."

Thank you for all the prayers so far on my financial miracle needed prayer request. I am overwhelmed by all the praying for me. So far I have been able to get gas without overdrawing my account! Thank you Lord for that! But I am still in jeapordy though so please continue to pray for my miracle..ideally a full time job with benefits at a bigger zoo would be ideal for my financial situation. My current zoo doesn't have as much money to offer benefits to everyone therefore they make some positions just below full time. My employer is wonderful, a very thoughtful family owned zoo/park! But it's just not cutting it for my finances..again thank you so much!!

First off I want to thank each and everyone of you guys for the prayers! For those of you who don't know: my dad was involved in a car crash on Christmas Eve and was sent to the emergency room, the lady who ran a red light wasn't telling the truth about how the accident really happened to recieve the financial benefits. God has heard our prayers. He is truly amazing. My dad is now 100% better and our car is being payed for! Praise The Lord. Even when I doubted him, he proved that anything was possible! Thank you guys so so much for the prayers I can't thank you enough. God bless you guys! And remember if you are going through struggles, it's not over, God is listening. Even though it might seem like he isn't there, he is. Keep fighting. God bless you and thank you guys!
January 06, 2013
I will be the first one to tell you that I never dreamed that the Lord could do what he has done. I never thought that he could use or even want someone like me. I once felt like I was the lowest of the low. That's not the case anymore. Jesus has changed me, empowered me, and emboldened me to stand, not in my power but, in his power and that of his Holy name! I do not know what he has in mind for me in the future but I know and trust in the fact that he's already there waiting on me. Thank you Lord Jesus, my King !

As of today 12/11/12 money was available from unknown source that has our roof fixed for the moment, we will need a new one soon but still do not have the $3500 dollars to do that but prayer is being answered. Also, the mortgage company that currently has our loan decided over the Thanksgiving holiday to sell us to another company and are even paying for the appraisal and refinancinig charges, they must want rid of us bad. Anyway the new company that we are dealing with has contacted us and we have sent all the pertinant information so continue to pray for this to all go through, our interest rate would drop 7% if approved. Thank all of you who have prayed, please continue. Praise be to God our creator and Savior. Also, please pray for my sister and brotherinlaw who are raising their grandson that God will bless them, they are really struggling financially to provide for him. Thank you for that.

I had posted a prayer request for my husband's cousin Bubba. He was in a major car accident & was not expected to recover. We were told that if he did survive, the best-case scenario would be quadriplegia with slight movement in his shoulders. It has been two weeks since his wreck. Bubba's brain began to swell, so the doctor performed emergency brain surgery which relieved the pressure immediately. That was the turning point. He was slowly taken off of his coma medicine. In the past three days, he has moved his fingers, shown movement in his shoulders, and has opened his eyes. Two weeks ago, the doctors were certain these things would never happen. God has already shown His healing powers and will continue to, we're certain! God didn't stop at that! God performed even bigger miracles! When He sent Jesus to the earth to die for us & to forgive our sins, He performed the most amazing miracle in our existence. Since Bubba's accident, Bubba's father and aunt have both accepted Christ as their Savior!!!!!!!! The family has prayed for Bubba's father's salvation for more than 30 years! Thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray for Bubba and his recovery. Also pray for his aunt and father that they will grow in The Lord. THANKS!!!

Last Sunday in Sunday School, I had the honor of meeting a WWII Vet that served onboard USS ATLANTA (CL-40). and I served onboard USS ATLANTA (SSN 712) during the Cold War. Later that day, Pastor Randy Johnson of Valley Forge Freewill Baptist delivered the message of Missions & Methods. WWII Vet & I shared same Mission - Freedom. Different methods no doubt. God shares his Grace & Mercy everyday if we only take the time to see it. GOD Bless.

Several months ago I requested prayer for a young man in our church that had had a horrific motorcycle accident. The drs gave no hope to the family. I am blessed to say that that young man is back home, walking with a cane and has no brain damage. He is a miracle and I just wanted to thank all of you who lifted him and him family up to our heavenly Father. He is an awesome God.

2 weeks ago I requested prayers for an upcoming mission trip to Honduras in July 2013. The request was for provisions to go build a church and repair an old building that would be turned into a children's home. It is with an overflowing grateful heart this morning that I report that your prayers are being heard and answered! There is a church in Mississippi that is sending a check that will cover all but $7500 that will still have to be raised. WOW. What an awesome God we serve. I'm not surprised that He has provided. I'm standing amazed. He still amazes me to this day and I am so thankful for His provisions. Thank you so much for your prayers and keep praying! We're almost there.

Redeemed ! I will never listen to that song the same way again. Jesus Christ has revealed to me and others just how much he truly loves us. Redeemed, forgiven of all my sins, freedom and living in the light of his freely given love ! Yes, Redeemed has become my theme song. Jesus Christ with his blessed assurance that he is indeed mine ,has given me the strength and the courage to share him with others on a daily basis ! Thank You King Jesus for searching , saving and bringing me out ! Glory to God and his Son Jesus Christ, I am REDEEMED !!!

My friend Tait Obadiah White, was 21 years old and a senior at ETSU! Earlier last week he was complaining about pains in his chest. He went to the ER and they said it was Pneumonia! Thursday Morning (October 11) he collapsed and went into cardiac arrest 5 times, and went 5 minutes with no heartbeat! Later Saturday night 4 DOCTORS confirmed he was brain dead, the doctors ran one more test to see where the blood was flowing, it was in the entire brain. They did surgery to relieve the pressure and then it showed he had brain activity! Yesterday (October 17) The Lord was ready for Obadiah to be Home with Him! We all prayed for healing and God answered our prayers! God truly is the Ultimate Healer! Obadiah will be greatly missed! Just have to keep thinking Obi is in a much better place than we are and God needed Obi more than we needed him here on Earth!

Last week I requested everyone pray for my friend who is the mother of two small boys and facing cancer. She was given the official diagnosis of stage II adenocarcioma. She was told she would have to have surgery and chemotherapy. We have been praying for her to have strength and peace but what she received was so much more. She had the surgery to remove the cancer. When all the tests were complete she was told today that they got it all and she will not have to have chemotherapy. Praise God that He has delivered her from this illness! This is truly a miracle! Thank you to all who prayed for her and please continue to pray for her recovery from surgery. Thank you WCQR for this wonderful place to go and request prayer. This station is a gift from God to our area.

I want to share with you how God and his Son Jesus are working in this city. Several months ago I was sitting silent on the sidelines doing nothing for the Lord. Satisfied with within my own salvation. However, the Lord Jesus wasn't satisfied and began to burden my heart, soul and mind. Sleepless nights, waking up in sweats, burdened to tears. I asked the Lord in prayers....What was it he wanted from me ? He told me he wanted me to "Shine my Light for Him"! After making every excuse not to do it......I finally gave in. Ever since I surrendered my life.....nothing has remained the same ! Things that can only be attributed to God have taken over and he has moved in my life in a Mighty & Powerful Way. Since then I've began speaking about the Goodness and Saving Power of my King Jesus ! A one Recent speaking engagement the Lord Jesus revealed to me and others the True Saving Power that he is capable of doing if we let him. Two little eight year old girls gave their lives to Jesus ! As I was knelling and listening to the Pastor explain the plan of Salvation to them , I realized that I had just witnessed the births of not one but, two children of God into his Eternal Kingdom......Jesus said suffer the little children to come unto me.......I'm thankful that I obeyed Jesus and was able to play a small role in pointing those children to the saving Power and Loving Arms of my Rescuer King Jesus ! Jesus is good all the time if we will only come to him with the Faith of a child !

2 years ago my son was having severe seizures and I placed a request on WCQR Prayer Works. Glory to God he is healed!!! He has no seizures or takes no medications today! God works miracles through the prayers of his saints. This ministry is so close to my heart! God bless each of you! :) If you are struggling today know that you are not alone. We have a God who hears our heart and understands our tears!

My story is not much different than most. I lost my job back in 2009 for not a really good reason, but it was God's reason. I was to be there to take care of my Momma for the last 2 years of her life. My husband was still working and I was able to draw unemployment. Then God allowed another thing to happen...My husband lost his job that following May..just a few days before his birthday in 2010. He ended up having to have surgery for a perforated bowl..which God helped heal him from. Then in 2011 on August 20th my Momma went to be with the Lord. My husband and I still had no job. My unemployment ran out...I was able to find work but it didn't pay much. I was thankful. Very thankful. My husbands unemployment ran out...never giving up on believing God had a plan for us..I kept praying..I had everyone I knew praying..people I didn't even know..praying..Today we found out that after 2 1/2 years my wonderful husband received a job. It means leaving our family to move to another state..but I know in my heart..as hard as it will be to leave them here..God has a job for us where we are going..not just employment..but something more wonderful..I thank God with all my heart and that isn't even close enough to how grateful and thankful I am. There are no words...I thank God for this radio station that I get to listen to every single day at work. I thank God for being with us during these trying times..they only made us stronger and brought us even closer to Him. Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!!!!

A couple of months ago I posted a request for prayer for me, my wife and family for my adultery. We separated for a while, and God even blessed me with a place to stay that would allow me plenty of alone time to allow me to reconnect with the Spirit of God. I had reconciled with God the creator, and Jesus and the example and sacrifice, but I had denied the Spirit for years...far too long. During that time I began a relationship with the Spirit that I have come to cherish. The word "repentance" always seemed very churchy to me, so I describe my change of heart as a Spirit-led "turning away". I truly believe I am not the same person I was, and that is largely due to one specific and extended prayer time which I truly feel the Spirit came to me and comforted me greatly. That prayer created a desire in me to know the Spirit more, and I've developed a daily prayer time (usually in the 1/2 hour range) of just me and the Spirit, plus many small prayers throughout the day. As for my and my wife, I am living at home again. We have a long way to go, without a doubt, but we are looking to God individually and as a married couple. Any other way will fail. I am immersed in recovery, as I should be, by books, groups, people and prayer. My wife's grace toward me is immense, God's grace is expansive. For anyone going through similar problems, or dealing with sexual addictions, there is hope. You're not alone. Admitting the addiction is probably the hardest thing you will ever do, but the freedom afterwards is...well, freeing. No more masks, no more lies. Admit where you are spiritually. It's never too late.

Praise God for the breakthrough that came after posting my prayer request. God rescued me. Thank you prayer warriors for your prayers. They truly were answered!! Bless you and Praise God forever for His mercy and Grace and above all things our Lord Jesus!!!!

In 1999 I came under conviction from the Lord and I knew that I wasn't living the life that the Lord Jesus wanted for me. Worldly pressures of living day to day in dishonor and disobeying what I knew to be right weighed upon me heavily. One evening I fell to my knees under heavy conviction and asked the Lord to make me into a "Prayer Warrior" little did I know or understand at the time what I was really asking for and opening myself up to from a Holy and All Powerful GOD. It has taught me a lesson on being careful on what I pray for, because the Lord just might give me what I ask. In that time period of my life I had never been in anything where I had or that of my faith had truly been tested. That all would be changed in one night, a night that has forever changed me and my faith in GOD. I've been a firefighter for almost 32 years, started when I was nineteen years old. I never dreamed that my family and I would ever have to go through the terror of a devastation of a fire. I was a fire captain at the time working at Holston Army Ammuntion Plant when the phone rang at 3am in the morning and I was awakened by the voice of my wife telling me that our house was on fire. I screamed and told her to get our two children and to leave the house, and to not go back inside under any circumstances,and I was on my way. I woke my crew up and told them what was going on and I left my Lieutenant in charge of the fire station. I drove like a mad man to my house, and about a mile away I could see the glow upon the low hanging clouds that were above my house that night. I was begging GOD to spare my wife and children , who at the time were 2 & 3 yrs old. When I arrived fire trucks were everywhere and a ambulance was leaving my driveway with no lights on it. I jumped up on the side of the rig and begged them to tell me that my family was not inside. They told me no that they were with the firefighters back at my house. When I got to the house, there stood my family, all three, blackened by the soot and smoke of the fire, the smell of burnt hair and smoke. I picked up my son who was two at the time and held him in my arms and I cried uncontrollably he said in a scared a weak little voice "Daddy we had a fire". I told him I know baby, but, Daddy is here now and it will be alright, I will build a new house. My wife and daughter were covered in soot and debris, it was terrible, hell on earth. My mother and father came and took my wife and kids to a neighbors house, then to their home to clean up and to rest . At that time I didn't know it but, my wife in trying to get the two children out had to go back inside the house to rescue my son who in a panic had pulled away from her and went back inside and hid under the dining room table. My wife took my daughter outside, and told her to stay there, she was going back to get my son wearing nothing but a t-shirt and a pair of panties. She found my son under the table, by now the smoke and flames were just about four feet off of the floor. My wife Mary is my Hero ! I love her very much and we've been married now for 22 years. I went back inside with the firefighters and as we walked through the burnt out shack and remains of home. I stopped and paused for a minute, then I said, "Guys there were Angels here this night", and when I said that in an instant, a little red fire truck that belonged to my son lit up it's lights and the siren sounded !!! As if to AMEN , what I had just said ! I have never been the same man since that night ! GOD showed me somethings that night, and since then my faith in him now is Great ! He rescued my family and I from the flames. We as a family have been through the fire. The Lord has answered my request to become a "Prayer Warrior" for him, After years and years of running from him, a rebel without a cause, I recently became the Chaplain at the Kingsport Fire Department. The Lord Jesus answered my prayer, I'm now a Prayer Warrior for Warriors of the Flames. He brought us out of the fire, and now I can kneel with others showing Christ's Love, and telling them that I know how you feel and how it hurts, for I have walked in your shoes,and Jesus has brought me and my family out !!!! This is for the Glory of my Father and his beloved Son Jesus !!!! I hope this story gives someone out there, hope in a loving and saving King Jesus ! Thank You Lord !!!

I believe in the power of prayer. Although my health is still a concern, I am feeling better. I have been offered a new job that I am accepting. My new job does not have benefits, but I feel blessed to have a job when so many are out of work. Continue to keep my health in your prayers. I know God still works miracles and he is always with me. Thank you for praying for me. It has been uplifting to see the prayer online notices. It has been good to know that there are believers out there who will pray for me and they do not know me. God bless all of you!

A few weeks ago, I posted asking for prayer for my dad who had a grapefruit sized mass in his chest. Last Wednesday was the surgery at Vanderbilt, and it turned out to be a spring water cyst, which is where your body creates this cyst that takes on water/fluid from your body. It held about 33 oz of fluid! They drained it & removed the remainder of the cyst & he came home the next day! He is sore but healing & there is no cancer! He is breathing much better now that it isn't pressing on his lung & heart. Praise the Lord our God! Thank you so much for all the prayers!
July 29, 2012
I asked a few days ago for prayer for my great aunt Leta after her serious car accident. When she first went into the hospital, it didn't look good. So I finally asked prayer on Tuesday night on here for her. The Lord showed your prayers to me on Wednesday, when she miraculously got a lot better. Literally overnight. She's been through all her surgerys, and still has a long road to recovery. Months of recovery. But I'd rather her have that than for us to not have her at all. It's amazing what the Lord can do. Thanks for all the prayers. Please continue to pray for us.

I requested prayer for a new job that would allow me to work where I felt like I could make a difference. I got the job and I am so excited. I met some of the children and their families that i will be working with last week. Thanks for all your prayers. I pray now that I can truly make a difference in their lives.

My husband I were able to find a home that meets his needs. The home we found was out of our financial limits about $50,000 and our credit wasn't the best in the world due to our situation. The owner actually came down the 50,000 and did owner financing for us for the next two years till we can get on our feet. Praise God for everything. And thanks to everyone that prayed for us prayer means everything and prayers are answered.
June 16, 2012
I requested prayer for an allergic reaction to meds I was taking. I was able to get some new meds and oral steroids and am doing much better. Praise God!
June 15, 2012
Around a year ago, I came here for prayers for me and my family. My wife was unhappy with our marriage and was talking divorce. We have been together for 30 years. We dated 5 years before we got married and our 25th wedding anniversary was on June 6th. Although I received many prayers and have prayed everyday since she said she was unhappy in our marriage, she filed for divorce in January and our divorce was final June 25th. Although I hurt very much, I want to thank everyone for their prayers. Those prayers are still getting me through the hard and difficult times of my wife being gone and my family broken up. Our children ages 22 and 16 are taking it better than I thought they would but I know they still hurt. I have left this in God`s hands and will continue to let him lead my life and whatever plans he has for me and my family. Just remember those prayers were not wasted they helped me so much! Thank You to everyone that prayed and continues to pray for us. God Bless!
June 08, 2012
I just want to say thank you to the sweet angel that sent me an encouraging note and prayer through this website. I get chill bumps when I read what was prayed, and I know that God can and will move in this situation. I don't know who sent this prayer to me, but I ask that God bless their heart and their soul. Trust me, God is still in the prayer answering business! Praise him!

I know this may seem like a meager request compared to others that are more serious, but it's one that is having a deep impact on our entire family. My 8-year-old son is a highly sensitive child. He's a wonderful, intelligent, and independent kid that loves Cub Scouts, Legos, and Star Wars :-) All too often, however, he becomes easily angered and disrespectful to everyone in the family. Often times he is very disobedient. He tends to think and act negatively to any situation or circumstances... mostly with irrational reasoning and responses. He chooses to have a bad attitude as it relates to what's expected from him in tasks or responsibilities. He's also an easy target for bullying at school. He has quirks about him related to his intelligence or anti-social tendencies that invite other kids to tease him. I know that the stress of this can very much play into his behavior and we have tried to help him by home schooling him. Even though he is no longer in that environment, he still struggles to not get angry and take offense to very minor things. My wife and I have had him in sessions with the school counselor and have had him in therapy for the better part of a year to help him control his anger and disappointments. We've read help articles and books on how to help him. We've taken advice from professionals and other parents. Everything we have tried seems to help initially, but then is later rendered ineffective. The stress that it has caused us as parents is unbearable at times. Personally, it's hard for me to find the joy in being a parent when I feel like all I do is discipline. His behavior rubs off on my other two younger children as they think it's okay to act the same way. It's hard to go anywhere without a struggle to deal with or an attitude to address. My greatest desire is for my son to live confidently and obediently so he and everyone else can have peaceful days and enjoy spending time with one another. We want all our children to grow up well and to live up to the potential that they have. Most of all, we want them to honor God with their lives. We just need to know how to help our son. Prayers would be greatly appreciated.
May 25, 2012
thank you all who prayed...she got home safely, did not have to be hospitalized while far from home. She still has a lot of pain from her disease though...I would love it if anyone would still pray for her pain.
May 24, 2012
May 5 my daughter was married to the man of her dreams. That night their house caught fire and my daughter received 2nd and 3rd degree burns and had to be air lifted to a burn center 4 hours away. Since then she has been released from the hospital and although she is still undergoing more surgeries for skin graphs and such, she is doing amazing! She is getting her facial features back and is smiling and laughing all the time! The best part of all is the overwhelming support of their friends and even complete strangers! Through all the prayers and the way she is healing my daughter has chose to live her life for Christ!!!! She wants to use her story to help others and I pray that God will use her in a most powerful way!
May 24, 2012

Wow, you all rock! The lord has already graciously moved in this situation. Knowing there are people all over, reading my prayer and sending up prayers for me, moves me to tears. Financially, I can't support WCQR like I want or need to. But I know that God will move, and enable me so that I can. I can't begin to express to you all how much you have touched my soul and heart. You all are like family and I ask God to keep pouring those blessings down on you all, and then let them trickle out to shower us all. God Bless!

I recently asked for prayer for my husband. He's a former police officer who is out of work and trying to get back into the field. After feeling like our situation was hopeless, he spoke to a chief in a neighboring town who is interested in hiring him. The town is having a counsel meeting tonight, and the cheif is going to ask permission to hire. Please keep praying for us. We know the Lord is in charge and is going to take care of us!

I was getting letters asking me for money from a ministry that was fake They were sending creepy letters trying to personalise it to me and others. They were sending objects through the letters as well. After about 5 months with 5-6 letters. My prayers were answered thanks to the mercy and wisdom God gave me. I found the way to get them to stop sending letters and they obeyed God's command for them to stop.

Thanks to God for helping me with my teeth, he provided the money to have my tooth bonded as it had a hairline fracture on it and he made it successful. Helped me with travels and money and a good experience. Helped me save the money up and have the right time, have it done fast that is my teeth whitened and blessed it to work very well! Thank the Lord he helped me with the money and also helped me with removable braces. I got through the treatment fast and never had to pay, my orthodontist was good and understood and granted me removable braces because I didn't want fixed ones as I was self conscious and they take longer. God spoke to him and changed his mind and I got them for free. I got discharged quick. Not only did they successfully straighten my teeth but also lift up my gum in level with the other so I didn't have to have gum surgery thanks to God! When I had an extraction the dentist couldn't get the root out but God did cause I prayed and remembered God can move mountains and I believed I received and it came to pass. I went for my scan and they found no root at all! Thanks to God for that I didn't have to be delayed brace treatment nor suffer getting it surgically removed. God cares about our small issues.
April 06, 2012
Just wanted to say when I was in school and doing my GCSEs. God never let me fail any of my exams. I prayed and he helped me and gave me good results. I got miracles cause I thought I failed knowing I never answered some questions correctly. I got all C and above. Praise God!
April 06, 2012
I just wanted to share with you a testimony. Nearly two years ago I had surgery done. I was unhappy with my appearance and I wanted to change it. I kept worrying about whether it was God's will or not until God was speaking to me through my thoughts and telling me if it made me happy then I could have it done. I prayed to God about it three years before I had the surgery and I would say I found him leading me to have it done. God provided the money, spoke to my dad who at first refused to take a loan for me and I got really upset. God guided him and God guided me and made all travels afforable and well. Found me a good surgeon and blessed me with very healthy and successful surgery. God answered my prayers and made me more confident and happy and gave me the look I wanted and protected me from all risks and complications. God also lead me to have it done at the time I wanted. I was the youngest candidate and didn't have to wait long to have it done. I got it done soon so I could enjoy my life with it. God blessed the journey to be short, smooth and successful. He was there for me when I was in need so much, he helped me mentally and emotionally. God also helped me find him after this surgery I got much closer to God and learned more of who he was. My experience lead to faith.

I asked for prayer over a month ago due to our financial situation. The IRS is still garnishing wages, but with over 60 prayers going up on our behalf just through WCQR I know God is in control over this situation. We have seen small victories and have faith that other victories will come. Thanks for your prayers.

Thank you to everyone who has prayed about my aunt's surgery yesterday to remove a tumor identified as stage 4 brain cancer. She came through the surgery well and her doctor feels like it was successful. There are a couple of small cancerous places still left, which they plan to treat with chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Please continue to pray for her full recovery.

A few weeks ago I asked for prayer for my husband and I as he was looking for a job. I would like to say thank you for all of the prayers because they have been answered. He was offered a job about a week ago at the hospital and he starts on Monday. I just pray now that he likes it and it works out. Thank you so much.

It is one of those problems that wears me down. Blended family with an adult single daughter who keeps returning to stay with us. Step-father & step-daughter wars with me caught in the middle. Finger pointing threats. I want to thank each of you so much for you prayers. Bit by bit there has been changes. She will get another place in Knoxville with a room-mate come Summer-I should be grateful and I am cautiously. Sadly, I had not all prayers come as fast as I had wanted. Th I lost a new job which leaves me very unemployed without any unemployment benefits. Leaves me hearing the fight between them. Then just last week the two joked among themselves.I was left wondering if there was going to be peace between them and our household. Well, let me apologize if I seem grim. We need to understand the Lord's perspective. I will.

Thanks to all of you that saw my prayer request and took the time to pray for that request. My husband's surgery went really well on his shoulder. He is doing bettter and is resting at home. The job that I interviewed for, well I didn't get it BUT I know God has a reason and his way is always the best way. I know that he will put me were I need to be and that his will for my life is the best and everything will work out for his will and my good. Please keeping praying for my husband as he is home healing at this time. Thanks again and God Bless!

I have been asking for prayer for my husband during a difficult trial in his life and our lives as a family. I praise God for answered prayer and request continued prayer for my husband. He knows that God is in control and I request a blanket of prayers for him, that God would put the armor of trust and peace upon him and the helmet of protection. Thank you all for your prayers, it is so uplifting to get notices showing someone has prayed. Thank you all so much.

Several weeks ago I posted a request for 4 year old Mason, suspected of having brain tumors due to some recent health issues. Since I posted the request, Mason has had no seizures and no further indications of anything wrong. All testing done has shown nothing. More tests upcoming, but God has healed this little boy!
February 16, 2012

February 10, 2012
Thank every one for your prayers. I have been able to get the meds I needed because someone I have helped felt the burden to give some money (the exact amount the meds cost) and I am already back to work and doing well. God never fails to amaze me when He listen to our prayers. Thanks to everyone and thanks to WCQR for the format to allow us to encourage and pray for one another.
February 04, 2012
It is one of those problems that wears me down. Blended family with an adult single daughter who keeps returning to stay with us. Step-father & step-daughter wars with me caught in the middle. Finger pointing threats. Truly thank you for your prayers guys. Any changes yet?, you might ask. Nothing greatly visible with the human eye, yet, this is my year of HOPE for each day. Its rocky still. NET-Trans of Johnson City step up to help a tiny tiny bit with one of the rides to college classes in Kingsport. Please do not stop praying,please? I have got to have resolution.

Last week I requested prayer: Thomas had an EKG done and his heart is fine. In six months he will go back for an Ultrasound as a base line to watch when he becomes of puberity age for Marfan's Syndrome. Right now though...he is a healthy, active, precious 3 year old little boy (as of March 3rd). Praise God and his mighty hand. Thank you all for your prayers....may you be blessed.

After the 3rd scope of the esophagus and thru the brochial tube, the lung specialist believes he has gotten samples of the tumor that is behind the left lung. We have not gotten those results yet, and are actually glad to not know if we're dealing with Cancer or not, until after Christmas. It really helps to know that people we don't even know are praying. I believe that WCQR has a great, committed group of listeners, and we know that prayers can make a huge difference. Will update more later. Merry Christmas.
December 20, 2011
Thank you for everyone who has been praying for me. Every time I receive a notification that someone has prayed it gives me a bit more hope and encouragement. I truly feel God working through all of you. Please keep praying.
December 19, 2011
Great News! This evening we just signed a year and a half lease for the townhouse we had looked at. It is 7 minutes closer to work and in a much safer part of the town. The paperwork all went through and the owner told the manager that we were the best choice to rent there. Now we can start the process of having cleaners, painters, etc. come in over the next few days/week to get things ready for us to move. I am really happy about it and my husband is too. Praise God! Thanks for everyone's prayers. I greatly appreciate them.

My daughter was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid cancer in August 2011. She is only 12 years old. We faced the worst thing that had ever happened in our lives but through the Grace of God we have overcome this terrible thing. We received so many emails of prayers that it was almost overwhelming. Each time an email came that someone had prayed for her and us, we got just a little more hope and found a little more peace. Her surgery was in August and her radioactive iodine treatment was earlier this month at St Jude in Memphis. I cannot thank all those that prayed, put her on prayer chains, sent notes of encouragement and St Jude enough. There are no words except we are eternally grateful with all our hearts!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you all for your prayers - Still in debt - and now possibly facing moving because my outgo is larger than my income. We really don't want to move - it's heart-breaking. We live in this tiny little cozy house on this beautiful wild edge of town and really don't want to live in an apartment. Our home was truly an answer to prayers last year ... Trying to get with the landlord ~ APPRECIATE PRAYERS! Had a meltdown at work last week, confided in my boss (probably didn't need to), don't know what God's gonna do with all that, but am once again (daily) putting this mess of a life in His more than capable hands. I know this all sounds pathetic (especially with others whose needs are so much greater), but I am so desperate for His help in every area. I know I'm harder on myself than anyone else - how do I forgive myself? And really receive His Grace? Please help, God. Thank you again to all who have prayed for me and my daughter. Than you God for the wonderful relationship I have with my teen daughter, for her safe travels to see her father during these holidays, for my job, for YOU, Lord - for hope, for this season, for the body of Christ ... It means SO MUCH to know there are people interceding for each other - who don't even know each other! Thank YOU WCQR for providing this forum for Christians to support each other in unity ... God bless us everyone!

I had requested prayer 2 times concerning my not having heat this year. Well Praise the Lord as He has answered once again. My landlord gave me a propane gas heater from another place he owns and the my boss brought me a 100 lb propane gas tank full!! Then he and our plant manager went to my house and installed it for me and all I had to buy was a $35.00 hose and regulator! Now that is prayer answered. And it is such warm comforting heat it burns this beautiful blue flame that my dog and I love to watch as we to to sleep. I know God will continue to provide means to fill the gas tank and keep me warm. Thank you to everyone who prayed so earnestly for me. God is Great and life is good and Warm!!!

Dh was restructured out of his job about 6 weeks ago. God has blessed with many odd jobs so far. We are thankful. We did receive word that he didn't get a home ministry type position. I'm not handling this well. It was part of a long-term dream. Don't know if he will be automatically considered for another position in this ministry or not.

training camp in Atlanta for the World Race this week has been demanding waking up at 5am every day doing exercises and even one day packing everything they had into their backpack including their tents within 10 minutes and then heading out into the rain for a long hike carrying them on their back. Everything they own and take is in their backpack for trip and everything they do is to mentally, emotionally, and physically a challenge for them and what they will endure for over 9 months of traveling different countries and sleeping in their tents and eating food from all the different countries they will be living in. It is very important the training they go through in Atlanta to begin to prepare some of the who have never been on a mission trip. Thankfully our daughter has been on several mission trips before, even so The World Race is so much more demanding. You can read more at candiceyates.theworldrace.org
October 17, 2011
Our daughter began training in Atlanta this weekend with an unpredicted situation that was going to prevent her from attending the training camp that would have allowed her to continue to go through the process of her mission trip to leave in Jan. Prayers were answered within only a few minutes and things were taken care of. God continues to meet her needs along the way proving over and over to her He is there in a mighty way as she puts her trust in Him. Thank you to all who have prayed and continue to pray for her. More information candiceyates.theworldrace.org

My grandpa is doing better. The doctors said he has Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), which is a precursor of Leukemia. He is taking Sub Q Chemo in his stomach, and is doing well with it. Please continue to pray for his well being.
October 10, 2011
Everytime I go online thinking I am really in the ditch and no one is having it this hard and I don't think God is listening etc... I start reading the prayer requests and realize that I have been there and had that answered beyond what I prayed for so instead of requesting I end up praying for and uplifting others to God and in return being so very blessed. My needs are still there but everytime I lift up someone else my burden lightens. Thank You for past prayers and thank you WCQR for this forum that serves us and God. Praise the Lord for HE is mighty.
October 10, 2011
While dh doesn't have a job yet, God has graciously provided a nearly steady stream of odd jobs for him. We were able to get a major bill paid. Please continue to pray as he has applied to both "work" and "ministry" jobs. We are thankful for showing us our dependence on Him. Still need a heatpump, but aim to be thankful for however He keeps us warm! Got a "someone prayed for you" right now when I was feeling quite overwhelmed with "normal" things. Thank you
October 04, 2011
my creatnine came back 1.9 just one tenth better than last time which is still not good. I am starting to worry that I may be in rejection please pray that it is God's will that this kidney will remain healthy & functioning good within my body. Praying that my labs come back better and that my creatnine will come back down to 1.5. Whatever the case may be I will praise God & remain strong in faith
September 28, 2011

A few months ago, I asked all of you to join us in praying for our Band Director, Cindy Roberts, who taught at Wallace Middle and John S. Battle High Schools in Washington County, VA. Cindy waged a courageous battle with cancer. The Lord answered our prayers and called her home yesterday morning(September 22, 2011). She is now at Home -- free from pain and rejoicing with our Savior! Please continue to remember her family (especially her husband, Tem, and her daughter, Cameron) as well as her band family, as we journey onward. Her life was a shining example of the love of Christ and she leaves that legacy to us to treasure.
September 23, 2011
Well my job of 26 yrs came to an end on Mon. but I can't wait to see what God has in store for me!!! Understandably I'm kind of scared because I spent well over half my life at the same job but I'm also excited about the journey that lies ahead! Please continue to pray for me as I look for another job and that God puts me where I can be happy and make a difference in the lives of others!! Thank you all!
September 20, 2011
I request prayer about a month ago concerning taking a new position with a new company. The thought of change and the insecurity and fear was almost over whelming and my nerves and body felt he stress. I noticed where several people prayed for me and one email was sent to me that touched my heart and helped me look forward, and move forward. I'm enjoying my new job better than any position I have ever had before. I want to thank the person who replied(and God or it might have been God who emailed me) This is his note to me,GOD BLESS YOU WHOEVER, I know how you feel, it is scary but I took a new job 2 years ago after almost 15 yrs with another company and was so certain I would fail that I made myself physically sick. But what a blessing it has turned out to be. I am happy here and working with some other Christians which has been a great help. Try repeating Is 41:13 when you get scared or upset it has become my mantra for the Lord thy God does hold your right hand and take away fear. Good luck and go for it God has opened this door perhaps just as a reward for all your hard work until now, walk in and see what He has for you
September 17, 2011
I recently posted that my job place was going to start being open on Sundays which is the only time I get with my family when I posted on here I was very concerned that I wouldn't get to teach the teens at my church or spend time with my family, but PRAYER WORKS and God gave me an even better schedule with not only Sundays off but Wed also. Praise God I wont be missing any church.
September 17, 2011
Thank you for your prayers and please keep praying! I now will not know the outcome concerning my job until Monday and it's not looking good at the moment but I know that God is still in control and that He has the final say! Thank you again. It's such a blessing to see that people who don't even know me care and are praying for me
September 06, 2011
I wrote a prayer request a few weeks ago that I had been in the hospital with a GI bleed and had lost a large amount of blood. After weeks of still not feeling good, I returned back to the doctor and told him that I was to the point I could not function anymore, I had pushed all I could push. We agreed that 2 more units of blood was needed. The procedure went well and I am now starting to feel like a person again. I will go back in a few weeks and check the levels and then have an iron infusion. Right now due to my resistance being low, I have to be careful about catching colds, etc. Also I wrote a prayer request concerning my daughter and her teaching career needing a job. We thought all the doors had been closed but after several weeks of not getting a full time position, the Lord showed up and showed us who He is and what He can do with giving her a teaching position. When we think He's late, He always shows up on time. Many thanks for all of the prayers.
September 02, 2011
Hey everyone, I had asked for prayer a few weeks ago because my husband had cheated on me for the 2nd time and I was and still am at a difficult time in my life. We have found a christian counselor who we have seen 2 tms. On our 2nd visit this past week the counselor told me he would like to see me for some 1 on 1 sessions basically because of my depression. He says until I get a backbone my husband will continue to do what hes doin. He wants to fix me before we can work on our marriage. Right now my husband is not very receptive to counseling anyways. He answers questions but that is about it. I am really having a hard time with all this so please continue to pray for us. thank you all for the letters of encouragement and especially the prayers you have sent our way. Its a miracle he even went to counseling at all.
August 31, 2011
We just got his Lab Results back and Praise God it is NOT Juvenile Arthritis! We are praying he just over did it and that is what caused the inflamation. We return to the Shriners Hospital in a few months unless he has swelling again and then they will do some more test. It has been such a Blessing to see the emails from PrayerWorks. It helps so much to know that other people take the time from their busy day to say a prayer for Our Joshua!
August 27, 2011
Thank you to all who prayed for my father and our family. We had him in the hospital and he went from being very confused and agitated and not responding very well with the dr's not able to figure anything out to back to mormal litterally over night. Our prayers were definitely answered as there is no other explanation. Thank you all again and thanks to our Awesome God.
August 22, 2011
We want to thank everyone who prayed for our home to sell. I had put a request in back in July and it was a blessing everytime I saw a 'someone just prayed for you' email come thru. God is faithful and we just got a signed contract on the place yesterday. Now the moving adventure begins!! God Bess.
August 18, 2011
after every one of our updates there has been a huge outpouring of support! all four of us have felt a sigh of relief knowing so many people are praying for one little girl. this is proof that God is alive and well in this country, no matter how hard some people try to take that away from us. may God bless all those who have shown their support!
August 09, 2011
I previously requested prayers for my husband's depression and back pain and I have been awestruck at the numbers of people praying for him (us). It has helped so much I cannot even begin to tell you. He returned to church with our family on Sunday for the first time in over a month and the sermon hit home with him. He struggles daily with a multitude of medical problems but I have always told him to just try to keep the faith. I am wholeheartedly thankful for WCQR and Prayer Works--because it most certainly does!!
August 06, 2011

August 04, 2011
It is amazing how God has used prayer to give us peace through the cancellation of a surgery in Little Rock. Rather than rescheduling it there, the Lord led us through prayers of people on this website to reschedule it in Kingsport. We have seen the hand of God in so many things leading us to this decision. I have entered a new prayer request for the new surgery date here. Thank you for praying!
August 03, 2011
Mom's brain surgery to remove a large tumor was cancelled due to her surgeon becoming very ill. It was to be delayed 3 weeks, however we feel God is leading us to another doctor in a closer location for Aug. 11. Thanks for your prayers. They brought so much peace to us as we wrestled with the cancelled surgery - definitely devine peace is the only way to describe it. I have entered a new request about making this tough decision.
August 02, 2011
I asked for prayer on Monday for strength for my husband at work in the situation he faces daily, and for God's direction for us. I want to tell everyone that Monday was the best day he has had in quite a few weeks! With all the prayers Our Father heard on my husband's behalf yesterday from all of you, he was blessed with a peaceful day and the mouths of the evildoers was shut all day! What a blessing that was. We still need you to keep praying for our direction in this situation, for strength, and for salvation for those who are coming up against the Christians at this job daily. I don't know what today has been like for him and the others, but we trust God has a plan in all of this. God Bless each of you for praying for us.
August 01, 2011
My grandmother had surgery and God definately intervened and answered prayer!! Gangreen was in her toe and doctors thought it had probably spread into her leg but it had not..Praise God!!! Only had to remove the toe. The only concern now is for it to heal. She is a diabetic and had PAD, which is bad circulation, BUT I'm trsuting in God, the Great Physician, to heal her completely. So far everything is looking good. Please keep praying for my grandmother, Artis Warren. She is my angel!! God bless you all for your prayers!! :)
July 31, 2011
I posted a little over a week ago about my sick Papaw. He passed away Tuesday morning. I just want to thank everyone for all the prayers for him and our family. It has been difficult, but we know he is the presence of Jesus with a new body. No more sickness or pain. Please continue to pray for strength and comfort for my grandmother. I had also posted about a job for my husband. He is still searching. We are trying so hard to be patient. Please pray that we have faith and wait on the Lord to open a door for him. Thanks to WCQR for all you do. I can't tell you how many times I've turned on the radio and the perfect song comes on and lifts me up. God Bless You All!!
July 28, 2011
Thank you to all that prayed for my mom. She went for her biopsy and it came back CANCER FREE!!! She does have a thyroid disease that is very treatable so please still pray for her. I'm still amazed at the power of prayer and our God who can do anything and everything. Thanks again and God Bless You! (He certainly has me!)
July 27, 2011

July 22, 2011
Well a few weeks ago I sent out a prayer request because my famiy and I have been through so much lately. And then I had court last week for custody of my 17 year old son. His father won custody and my son didnt look at me or even speak to me the whole time we were there. Which was extremely hard for me esp since we were there all day long. But before I left that morning, sick to my stomach from nerves, I prayed for Gods will to be done, no matter what the outcome. When we left the court house I was upset to say the very least and I pitched a little fit. But then I said a prayer that I didnt understand why things worked out this way but that I prayed for his will to be done so there must be a reason for the way things worked out. And so from there I prayed that he just walk with me and keep me patient while he does his work. I havent felt this at ease in months.. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who prayed for my family over the last few weeks. I couldnt have made it through all this without the love of God and your prayers... SO thank you all of you and bless you!!!!
July 18, 2011
I had posted a prayer request over a month ago for my boyfriend who was searching for a job and was having ex wife issues. Praise God he found employment with benefits and good pay. His ex wife has also paid him some of the money she owes him. He has also found a new home and has just moved in. I had told him to lay all his burdens at God's feet and dont pick them back up, he finally did and everything started falling into place!! I had also posted a request for my daughter who found a spot on the bottom of her foot and was referred to a skin cancer dr. She had her first visit last week, they done a biopsy so we should have the results in about 2 weeks. Please continue to pray for her and that we get good results! God is so GREAT!!!
July 16, 2011
I asked for prayers for my daughter - she has been struggling dealing with a mistake she had made. A change happened last night that I pray will help her go forward and make time for God in her life again. thank you for your prayers. Please continue them.
