Pray for my stepdad

Anonymous

Please pray that my step-dad will be nice to my mom. He has been terribly cruel to my mom on and off over the past several years. Currently he is being very mean to her. I am grown, and dont live with them, but it just hurts me so much to see my mom in such pain from him. In the past, physically abuse her, but now its just degrading,name calling, put-downs,cussing,and belittling actions towards her all day long. I see her health failing from the stress of it all over the years. its so sad. The only time my step-dad is in a good mood is when the secretary from the place he retired from asks him out to lunch. I dont understand why he couldnt ever have that kind of relationship with my mom. I really dont like seeing her in pain.Please pray

Please pray that God gives my husband and me the strength and courage to continue to reconcile our marriage. Already I have seen Him working, and I trust Him to lead us back to Him and to each other. I'm asking Him to teach us to love and forgive as He does.

Waiting for forms

Husband recently had to send for his original birth certificate, which is needed now to get a driver's license renewed. Even those who've had a driver's license for years have to do this. I did too and I have been driving since 15 years old. I am 63. My husband is 70 and has served in the Army, got on Social Security, etc. with the documents he had. It was enough at that time. But now things are changing. My husband's mother had him during World War II and not in a hospital. He worries that the original birth certificate won't be found. He sent money to Illinois Dept. of Vital Statistics and we saw using online banking that they cashed the check so we are encouraged that they found it. Thanks for praying. God Bless.

Randy is looking for a full time job that pays well. Right now he is living in temporary situation (staying with friends). A job will mean he can get a better place to live, and he wants to rent a room from my husband and I. We would love to have him (he's a delightful and wonderful Christian man) but he must be employed first. So we wait upon the Lord. Sandi needs help with marriage, finances, for her husband to be saved and to quit drinking, for a house to rent, and for her relationship with her daughter to improve. Sara needs her husband to come home. Please pray for reconciliation. That God will break down all barriers and cancel the plans of the enemy who comes to kill, steal and destroy. Pray that this family will be reunited and the marriage will be better and stronger than ever. Sara and her husband have a 5 yr. old son. Michelle longs for a Soul Mate. Pray that God will send the right one, in His perfect timing. And to shut the door on counterfeits the Devil sends. Also, I am asking for prayer for my health, finances and for a car. Also I want to say Thank You Lord for all your wonderful blessings. Praise God.

Pray for Harold

Please pray for my cousin Harold--in his 60s and diabetic. He's home from the hospital but confined to bed. He says he has 4 more days of infusion of the antibiotic, then will be done. Doctors do not now what kind of blood born infection we has, but it must be bad for him to endure all this. By this Friday he'll have had 12 infusions that take a minimum of 2 hours at a time. He says he is very tired. Thanks everyone for your Prayers. God Bless.

We fight to overcome depression

Jessica

After having our baby 4mos ago we have been fighting post partum depression. I have suffered w depression for a good portion of my life, but this is overwhelming. I have pushed my fiance so far away he's ready to call it quits. I have been in medication for a while, w no improvement. I have seen therapists, and they can't seem to help. I am struggling. Every couple days we fight. It's exhausting & we wonder if I'll ever be the same I was before. I pray & I pray and maybe I'm just not listening, but it's not getting any better. I don't know what I would do if he left me, but that's where we are. Please pray for our family, our relationship, that we may come out the other side of this stronger than before.

Thank you.

Friend Needs Deliverance

Anonymous

I have a friend who has had a very rough life that involves repeated sexual abuse and was raised by a single mother who also had sexual abuse. When my friend was 14, one of her teachers took guardianship over her. The sexual abuse continued in that new home, too. The last time was about 15 months ago and she has never been the same person. She started growing further away from me, other Godly people, and even our church. Last April, she got involved with a guy and they are supposed to be married this August. Ever since getting involved with him, her spiritual state has really taken a downward spiral. However, she doesn't think that she's different because she feels so happy now. Well, the Godly people in her life are VERY concerned about her and recognize that she hardly acts like the person that she used to be. She has hurt a lot of people and even knows it, but doesn't seem bothered enough about it to make things right with anyone, including me. She has kept somewhat of a distance from her biological mother through the years, but has always maintained some type of a relationship with her. I think that my friend still suffers from neglect and abandonment issues. Well, just last night, she texted her biological mother and stated that she is not going to text or talk to her again. I still cannot believe that she has gotten to this very low point. Please pray that she is delivered from her traumatic past and that all ungodly influences are removed from her life.

Work stress

Amy

I have been at my current place of employment for 3 years. In that period of time we have never been fully staffed. Recently, I became the only staff member in our area. This had put a great burden of stress on me plus and unmanageable workload. I feel like I'm being sabotaged. Please pray for relief from tension headaches, wisdom, and perseverance. Let me see door that are to be opened and know what doors have been closed. Please pray for peace and a positive attitude. God bless... I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!
