Urgent Family Needs

God is working mightily today in our ongoing family situation but please be pray as DCFS visits our daughter in the morning that God will work in a way that will move our daughter to go to detox and to bring her daughter back here where they can work on reconciling while she works on her problems and not run away where her problems will just be compounded. Please God give this worker wisdom and the insight to see that it's best to bring her daughter back here where they can work on being a family and not be separated. Please God work with M that she will recognize the depth of her problems and that to run away will only multiply her issues by a dozen fold. I praise you Father for the doors you have opened today that we thought were closed. Your wisdom and the power of your hand are mighty and beyond our comprehension and thank you for keeping A safe throughout this. Please work all things together for everyone's good. We love you and bless your Holy name! Amen

Money spending woes

Anonymous

08.05.14
My husband is has a problem letting things go and buys more of things we already have and don't need! He's a border-line "hoarder" and I'm not kidding. For example, we were shopping the other day for a birthday day gift for a friend. He bought a big package of white socks. I said "Honey, don't you have a drawer full of socks?" "Oh no," he said. "I need these." Today I counted the socks in his drawer (and that is not including the new ones). He has 14 pair. We have a washing machine; all he has to do is wash the socks. I don't get it. To me this is wasteful. We just had a fight about it. He can't see that he is wrong. I worry, since we live on Social Security and money is tight. The socks he bought the other day cost $15 for the package. We will never get ahead if he doesn't get a handle on his spending. I sent him to the local butcher shop the other day. I'm disabled and he is my legs. I asked for 3 lbs. of ground beef, 3 pork chops, and some bacon. He bought that but more. He spent $55. He decided to buy 2 large whole chickens ($18) and a package of hickory wood chips for the BBQ grill ($7.99). My husband spends money like he's a millionaire. Please pray. I don't mind spending money if we need to. There are always things we need--that's life. But he wastes money and I don't like it. Thank you for praying for both of us.

Failure to launch son

Anonymous

08.05.14
I have a 26 year old son who is very smart but isn't using the gifts that God has given him. He has the potential to be whatever he wants to be, but instead has chosen a minimum wage job, barely squeaking by in life. He has a college degree and several classes that he could use in the health care profession, but doesn't have the ambition to even apply. I've been praying for acceptance that this is what he obviously wants to do with his life, (although he tells me all the time how much he doesn't like his job). It breaks my heart because he's such an awesome person he deserves better. I'm asking for prayers for God to work in his life for him to move on. Also that God puts the right people in his life to help him with it. I'm also asking for confirmation for myself that God is working on his future. God bless!

Ex Son in law

Anonymous

08.05.14
Over the past year I've asked for prayer for my ex son-in-law. He cheated and left my daughter for another woman, broke up with her and he's now on his 3rd relationship in a years time. He asked me to leave him alone about 3 months ago, but in the past week has reached out to me because he's struggling emotionally. He's never really worked through all the things he did and why he did them. He's never figured out what caused him to cheat on my daughter. Pretty sure he's bipolar but hasn't gotten the help he needed. He's not happy and has a lot of regret about what he's done. I know he's dating this girl because he doesn't like to be alone. It's for him not for her. She's crazy over him but I'm sure she doesn't know the truth. It's not fair to her for him to use her that way. He actually told me he's not happy and feels miserable all of the time. I'm asking for prayers for the Holy Spirit to convict his heart to turn to God and work out his emotional problems alone (with God's help and help from a counselor). I know that God is using me in his life to show him His love and my unconditional love. Every time I give up on him, God gives me big confirmations to keep being a part of his life.

Restore my Relationship

Mikayla

I am asking for prayers....specifically for my fiance, Michael, to open his heart again for me and allow God to tear down the walls and blocks, the cloudiness and the doubt that he has built over the past several months. I have made mistakes, I have regrets, I slipped into a dark pit of depression. I hurt him and took him for granted, though it was never my intention. Now, suddenly...I find myself alone, he has left. Even considering pursuing another woman. This is the biggest heart pain and chest ache I have ever experienced, and I have been through a lot in my life. Michael says that God has not convicted his heart yet..he is waiting. We met three years ago, after our divorces...he has three children, I have three children and we have become a beautiful, loving blended family. His love was once deep and real and true. He IS the love of my life. He is my sweetheart. I helped bring him to accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior back in February of 2012. We have been through tough times, yes, but I want and desire nothing more than to be his faithful and devoted wife, under God, with Jesus at our center, for the rest of my life. I am absolutely heartbroken and filled with fear and dread...I am fighting that and standing up and facing it with God's Truth and His word. I believe nothing is lost in Christ. Please pray God will restore and redeem and renew our engagement and bring him back to me through faith, forgiveness and LOVE.

Husband's Work

My husband is a beginning video game designer who is preparing to sell his first game! When this happens it will be a solution for a lot of our financial problems and worries. I have been praying on my own for months now and I feel like it's not getting anywhere. So I guess what I am asking for is help me to to pray for is success with this game and my patience while he does so, and that once the game is sold that God will guide us to so what is right with this money, as we have never seen this amount before.

EMOTIONALLY OVERWHELMED

I am a mother of 5 that works 2 jobs and am still struggling financially and emotionally. Over the past year I have been faithfully going to church and seeking more of God. It seems that the devil is really trying to attack me for doing so. I have had more problems with my car than ever before. My relationship is broken and I am hurting because my significant other will not even speak upon the issues we are going through. I just am feeling very overwhelmed and am struggling not to lose my faith in going through all this.

upcoming court

Rosie

Please pray that God's will be done in my upcoming court date Wednesday August 13th @ 10 a.m. I have struggled for four years to get my ex-husband to be compliment with helping in the financial support of our three daughters. There was time of no help and times he was faithful. During the times he has chosen not to help we have struggled and been through what seems a set back. Recently, I decided we needed this to be a consistent court ordered payment through deducting this from his paycheck. I have a heavy heart because he is very hurtful and mean and I feel like he will be this way in court and try to get me upset so that I will fall a victim to his anger, I need strength to go to court and be able to ask for what is required and strength his hurtful words and actions won't make me feel weak. Even after being divorced 3 years I struggle with his emotional abuse and it is intimidating at times. Please pray for me and my girls and our upcoming court date. Also pray for our battle against his abuse.

Tired and Discouraged

Daughter, Wife, Mother, Grandmother

Pray for me. I can't express how much I am struggling right now with just the daily routine items of life. Depression, anxiety, lethargy, and much physical pain all make me want to curl up in a ball and make the world go away. While I am feeling this, all the noise and chaos of my daughter, her family, and my parents' needs are crashing in at me. I'm convinced this is a spiritual battle because of all the things we see God doing in the midst of it. We are seeing victories in many areas, but not before another battle erupts. Even the good in our lives seem to come with complications, and I can't catch my breath or unstress. All I want to do is cry the words of the song "The Warrior is a child." So, help rebuke Satan, and pray God do with my life all the things I know I can't do without His strength and renewing.

Sleep

I have had difficulty sleeping many nights for the past month or so. This is something that has happened to me on and off throughout my life, but never for this many nights consistently. A lot of this has to do with anxiety over various things. Please pray that my fears would be silenced by the Lord's peace and that I would have restorative and restful sleep so I can feel refreshed and ready to serve Him. Thank you.

Jo and Bill - two sweet octogenarians

Anonymous

08.04.14
We met a lovely senior citizen today named Jo. She came out of the bank and headed toward the parking lot. I was sitting in our vehicle, waiting for my husband who was still in the bank. (Later I learned she chatted with him while standing in line). He came out and the 3 of us had a nice time talking. But when I first saw her I said "You look so pretty today,,,,like Hawaii." And she did. She wore a bright turquoise blouse and had a crisp white headband around her perfectly coiffed hair. She wore a petty white necklace, slacks, and white sandals. This octogenarian was indeed a picture of loveliness. When I spoke to her (I had my window down) she came right over and started speaking with me. Turned out to be a Christian. She told us that she's a widow. They had 59 years together. She talked a little about him. He died in the hospital of some strange disease that is hard to pronounce. She said rather than move him home to Hospice, he was comfortable there so they did that. A harpist came in to play music each day, very soothing and nice. Told he had 2 weeks to live, he said I am packed and ready to go (home to Heaven!) Now, Jo is seeing a Widower whom she met in Bible Study Group. His name is Bill. Bill is a "baby Christian" but growing in Christ. You have to crawl before you can walk. Please keep him in prayer. Also, keep Jo in prayer for (her continued) good health. We enjoyed meeting/talking with our sister in Christ
