Please don't read if prayer offends you..:)

  1. I'm stunned right now....and my heart is so heavy, I just have to put into words how I feel right now.

    Most of the time I read this forum for information, fun, to interact with others in the same field as I. But tonite...so much is on here about how stressed, and distressed so many are.

    I feel helpless...because I can't go, and do anything to help. I would love to run across town, and lend a hand...as I have more time on my hands, than I need to have. But I'm unable to....as I'm just too far away to be of any tangible help. I can pray, and I know the Lord has believers in every city, and I believe that He will hear, send them to those in need. I truly believe that many times we have entertained angels unaware.

    Lord please I pray ...that you would send someone to help rncountry, and help her parents find a way out of no way. That you would be with kids-r-fun, and make the lie sent to her, be just that...and be seen for what it is. Lord you know...that this lie was born out of someone wanting to destroy her marriage, and is a lie from the pit of HELL!

    Father I ask that you would send angels to their side, to protect those who need protection, and to give strength to those who need it. Lord I ask that you open doors that need to be open, and close doors that need to be closed. Give new memories to those with old ones, that continue to haunt those who can't forget.

    Father I ask that you give peace where there is strife, and love where there is hatred. Trust where there is mistrust, and joy where there is sadness. Rest to those who are restless., and peace where there is turmoil.

    Father give financial blessing to those who are backed up against the wall, and don't know which way to turn. Give them new thoughts, new ideas, and the wisdom as to how to use them.

    Father give courage to those in fear, and not sure which way to go next. Give them understanding, where there is confusion, so they will know which way to go from here. You know more about them, then I ever will, and you understand their needs better I could ever hope to.

    Reach out to those who know you, and those who don't. Go into the homes far and wide, and bring a brighter day, to all...no matter what the circumstance. Because I believe you are able to do all things, exceedingly above anything we could ever ask or do.
    I ask all these things in Jesus name...Amen

    Brownie, thank you for your heartfelt thoughts and fervent prayers. I for one really need them right now, and deeply appreciate all you and others have done in this post. Will turn it around now, and add my own silent prayers to this thread, for others' needs.
    Lindagio, agree w/you!!

    If God was small enough for our minds, He wouldn't be big enough for our needs.

    Peace and grace to all. -- D

    What a glorious Sunday this is. My heart is glad....only because there are so many who know Him, and believe in His love for all.

    You have stepped out, and took time from all that concerns you, to stand in unity, and added your faith, and your prayers.

    John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    For me this means...laying down your cares also...and taking time to be supported of others...when you have many burdens in your own life. But you take the time to consider the burdens of others

    May the blessings prayed for, be received in the lives of all who took the time to prayer for others. I believe that all prayers prayed in earnest....are heard.
