Pastor's Faith

Anonymous

Needing prayer for a former Pastor that has lost his faith and hope. Life has dealt him unbelievable heartache and he is simply empty. After years of service to others, he has found himself in a place of not having enough strength for himself. Let's pray that God will restore this man's faith and heal his mind, body and spirit. That he may once again be used for the Glory Of God.

daughter & addiction

Please pray that God will heal my daughter M from the addiction that she is severely enslaved in. She found freedom once but has lost her way and it's worse this time due to lack of forgiveness, anger and loss of her daughter. Please pray that God will drive out this demon and the darkness that has engulfed her and that she will see God's love and forgiveness is for her and that she has help just waiting for her and help her to see that her family still loves her and accepts her. May God protect her and May God knock down the barriers preventing Addy from returning home. We praise Him for what He has done and is doing and that He hears our prayers and will return both of them to us in due time. He is an awesome God!

Marriage

I have been posting the following prayer: "Because of my sexual sin, I destroyed my marriage. Please pray for my wife to heal and to forgive me. I pray that I may be restored and be the husband that I have been called to be." Thank you all for praying for me. Last night, my wife asked me for a divorce because of my repreated sin. Please pray for my wife that she will heal from the hurt that I caused.

followup on husband needed prayer re: handyman job

It was a long day but my dear husband made it through. Thanks to all who prayed. My husband is 70 and in great health thankfully, so he works odd jobs here and there to make extra money, which helps as we live on Soc. Security. Yesterday was 100 degrees and he got hot and exhausted. But he earned $105--a wonderful blessing. And, we met nice people too. Here's what he did: 1) installed an Air conditioner in the window of a 2nd floor professional office. The window was a good 15 feet up, on a side wall, so the work was done on a tall ladder. A tricky job. He had to get the A/C in and not drop it out the window, meanwhile making it slightly slanted so condensation would not build up in the unit, but drip outside. Then, once all was okay and locked in, he pulled the side accordian wings out and sealed up the hole above the A/C unit, a space 8" x 36" in size. The client asked for PlexiGlass so we went out and bought that and had it cut to fit, then my husband caulked it all around. Once that was done, he installed sound proofing insulation in the attic of the same building (a different room). A hot job. He wore a face mask which made him even hotter. Praise God he got it done. I am very proud of my husband. We got home around 5 p.m. and that's when we finally ate "lunch". Had a super busy day. I don't always go with him on his handyman jobs but this time I did, to encourage him.

Teenage son in rehab , struggling

Anonymous

Please say a prayer for my son who is in a rehab center for some recent substance abuse issues that landed him in the ER a few weeks ago. He is over in Peoria, while I am in Bloomington. He is having a hard time. He wants to come home. My heart is broken. He has ADHD and being kind of clammed up is very hard for him, but he has done this to himself. Please pray and feel free to share on air. I ask that he calms down and accepts it, that God will heal him and his addiction. I ask that the staff as a heart of kindness towards him and works with his Insurance continuing to pay is an issue, and I just pray that he continues to make progress so he can stay and get on the right track. Please pray for his strength and progress. Please pray for the staff to all be kind and have kindness towards him. I pray he is covered with the blood of Jesus and healed from this addiction. Please also pray for our family as this has been draining and emotionally hard on everyone in the family. Thank you so much and God Bless.

Asking prayers for a young family that husband had lost his job and they are behind on their bills and rent. Their cilco will be shut off next week and the landlord demands money or be evicted. The husband is finally working again but it takes time to catch it all back up. They also experienced a very personal loss last week. Appreciate your prayers.

My sister's health

My sister Allison has a shunt in her head and a shunt in her belly and recently she has been having awful headaches. We took her in to OSF to see what was wrong. They looked at the x-rays and said that one of the shunt had disconnected and that is what is causing her pain. They are now taking her up to Chicago to the hospital up there to confirm the disconnection. It looks like she might have to have surgery.

Today my husband has 2 handyman jobs. Both are quite involved and he'll be up on a ladder. He's 70 and his hands shake, his skills are a bit rusty. He's doing this to help with our finances. We are on social security. Please pray for him to have an excellent day. I'm going to give him moral support. Thanks.

Work

I work at Big R in Washington. I work there as a cashier. I got a call at home from work on my day off and they asked if I recalled ringing up a certain item and I told them I did not. I guess what they are saying is a high priced item went through when I was signed on the register and it scanned for a lower price. I did not notice it going through at a lower price and so since that happened my job is on the line because I misscanned the item. I might or might not lose my job. Pray for wisdom in the decisions of leadership. Pray for peace on my part until I know their decision. I really do not want to lose my job.
