You never know when God is going to bless you!! Good things happen when you least expect them to !!!!!!!!
Dear Lord, I thank You for this day I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I'm blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. I ask now for Your forgiveness. Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You. Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. And It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak... Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way. I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those that will delete this without sharing it with others I pray for those that don't believe .
But I thank you that I believe. I believe that God changes people and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met. I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees it.
God Bless!!!!!!!!!!! Just repeat this phrase and see how God moves!!
God I love you and I need you, come into my heart, please. Know that you are already blessed by the person who sent this to you......Your Friend!
Dear friends, I am asking all of you to please pray for my grandma. She is on death bed and isn't saved. The Dr. says she has a tumor that has wrapped itself around her kidneys, ovaries, uterus, colo, ans intestines. He also said it was hanging out of her cervix. She has to go in on Saturday for more test to see if it isa cancerous and if they can operate. He warned that since she is so old and weak she might die in surgery but if unoperable she will die soon anyway since it is rapidly growing. My grandma was raised in the church and her parents help start the Primitive Baptist in the South, but she says she doesn't believe in God. I have tried to talk to many times, but she is almost completely deaf. I will not be posting for the until the end of the month since I am leaving for Illinois. God Bless you all!

OUR VERY DEAR SISTER KARLA/perfect Health July 11, 2007 8:35 AM

I am asking for prayer. I am going in for a potassium resistance test on the 19th of July. The Dr. is looking to see if I have Interstitial Cystitis it is a condition of the bladder that also effects your kidneys. From doing some research on the net I have had this condition since I was 6 yrs. old, but went undetected for along time by Doctor's. This condition can cause pinpoint bleeding in the bladder wall, ulcers, hardening of the bladder, and bladder cancer. I will also be going in for a hysterectomy sometime in August so please pray for my health and the surgery. May God Bless You All!
My cousin needs lots of pray to put his own needs and wants aside for the well being of his 2 children in my care.
He was willing to sign guardianship papers of his kids over to us while he is locked up. During all the investigation for the abuse the mother did to the kids while she visited. The DCF case worker recommended we get it done right away whil they are still in the process of the investigation, because the Judge would grant it without the mothers concent and it would allow them to stay with us until he is released.
DCF as said they think it best my cousin take anger management and parentng classes, because he needed to with anger in a diffrent way. If he ended up in jail again he would probably lose his kids for good.
Now he doesn't want to sign the guardianship for fear he will have to jump through hoops, by the Judge or DCF to have the guardianship over turned.
He is not looking and refuses to see that without it if his wife doesn't get charged I have no grounds to keep them here with me. They will ended up back with her and her life style is all about drugs and sex. She can't take care of herself long enough 2 kids and has already abused them.Plus he will never see his kids again because he can't go into the state she lives because of past crimes.
At least with me they will be well cared for (that is why he gave them to me to begin with) and loved. He can see them when ever he wants, we offered to let him stay with us as well till everything he needed to do was done (if they require him to) and so he could get a job. But his fear of not having custody/guardianship of them and having to jump through hopes will surely put these kids in a terrible situation.
Dear Lord open his eyes to see it is not about him or us , but about protecting 2 innocent children. I ask this in your loving name Amen!
Right now, I'm suicidal. I'm having major problems with my hubby and I can't do anything about it. He has been verbally and emotionally abusive to me for just about the entire 9 years we've been together...our 9th anniversary is just 2 days from now...whoopie! We've already been sleeping in separate beds for a couple of months now (my choice, not his).
I woke him up for work Friday at 6:30 am and he quickly started another round of arguing and badgering. It was just over something trivial, but it quickly escalated, and he wound up calling me an ugly fat bitch. Then when I went back into the bedroom alone and cried, he taunted and yelled at me for that too!! He was so loud that his daughter upstairs (we're staying in her basement right now because we're homeless and can't afford another place of our own) overheard us and later questioned me about it. Because he called me that, I've stopped eating as of Friday noon (I'm NOT fat..I'm only 130 lbs). He's a foot taller than me and weighs more than twice my weight. He's the one who looks pregnant with twins, but I never say anything negative to him about it.
I thought husbands were supposed to be on your side and uplift you, not tear you apart. I hurt so bad right now, that I don't even want to live anymore. I'm already dead inside anyway. I can't leave him because I have nowhere else to go. The rest of my family and friends either don't want me, or can't help me. I'm disabled from my brain tumor and seizures and a host of other health conditions. I can't work anymore because of them, and have no income at all (so I can't afford a lawyer or a place to live) and was denied Disability and have been waiting forever for my appeal hearing, so I don't even have a penny to my name. I'm useless and helpless, unwanted and unloved. Just let me go. I already made a plan. I can't get help from counselors, therapists or the hospital because I have no insurance anymore, and I can't get any government assistance because his income is just slightly over the maximum cutoff to qualify for any help from them. I give up.
Prayer Request for Tina & William 12:07 AM William's back on the road and being home all week-end and getting back through with another load.

Thank you all for your prayer's. Raymond came home on Tuesday 2 days earlier than he was suppose to.He is doing well, but still in a lot of pain. His wounds are healing up very well. He has been doing his own therapy and can now move all his fingers and his wrist a little. There is still alot of swelling to his hand. Monday he goes to see the surgeon to see if he is ready for therapy. Then the following Monday his stitches will come out. He will be on homebound schooling the remainder of the school year because that is his dominate hand.
Thank you all for your prayers and words of encouragement, I appreciate them so much!
Allie I am praying for you right now as I know that you have just gone thru something that is really hurtful. When someone betrays a trust it is devastating please read Isaiah 54:5-6 Allie God knows what you need and he also knows the desires of your heart and will give them to you in His timing. He loves you more than a mortal man ever could and will hold you close in your pain.
I am continuing to pray for Raymond, God spared his life and will see him thru this terrible time.
Jennifer praying for your leg I know that God is a healer, he has touched me many times. Thank you for your kind words regarding my brother, it has been the hardest job I have ever loved.
Lisa I continue to pray for your job situation, I have been where you are and sometimes at the last moment God always made a way. He is truly a God of supply.
Blessing to you all as we continue to fight the good fight of faith!
Thank you Alexandrea, for your reply and for your words of encouragement too.
Praise the Lord, Lisa, what a miracle, eh. The Lord doesn't bring you half way, He brings you right through. "Being confident of this very thing, that He which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ". Philippians 1:6. There is also a chorus about the same theme.
Praise the Lord, Jean, for your selfless service to your disabled brother, I know God will reward you in due course. For He does. "That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ". 1 Peter 1:7
Father, we lift up to you, Raymond who is in Hospital, who is going through some things only his mother Karla and you know, Lord. We don't see it from heaven, but you see it. We bless you O Lord, you who give unto us from out of your abundance, O lord , You Lord, never forget to give us what we need the most. You Lord who forgives us our iniquities, and heal us from our deseases. You even redeem us with your life from destruction: You crown us with your lovingkindness and tender mercies. And satisfies our mouth's with good things, so that our youth is renewed like the eagles. Oh! thank you Jesus, how great you are! Mighty in power, mighty in glory, holy is your name. Amen.
I also had a fall last Friday, my knee gave way and I fell. Stiff and sore down the left side of my body mainly and neck too. The week before that I went for a walk and nearly fell, but stopped myself from doing so by hopping on the left leg. Which I think caused it to give way so now I am doing an exercise to strengthen it. Hopefully. Please keep me in prayer for on the 28th April I have undertaken to do a 7 km walk4 Bibles through The Bible League. It is my first time and is a real challenge for me to do this. I am planning to take my dog also walking and have already 2 sponsors PTL. to raise money for Persecuted Christians in China.
I was at the Hospital today to see my son. He is doing okay, but is in alot of pain. They unwrapped his arm and hand today, it was such a terrible ordeal. The bandages were stuck to him and the Dr. just started ripping them off my poor baby was screaming. We finally had to stop him and get my son dopped up and had to soak all the bandages before they could continue.
I feel so bad because there is nothing I can do to help him. I wish I could take all his pain for him. His injuries are worst then we thought. He probably has over 100 stitches between his arm, hand, shoulder and back. He has to stay in for a couple more days.
Please pray that the Lord gives him the strength he needs to endure the rest of the treatment cause it will all be very painful and to help release him of his pain. Also pray that my son will believe in Christ and realize God is giving him an extra chance.
Lisa, I am so glad for you and your daughter. God is wonderful and almighty. Sometimes we need to remember everything is in His time not ours and there is always a reason for it. Amen!

Please pray for me and my children, as we are both struggling finacially and without employment. I just had an appeal hearing on my unemployment, and please pray God's will be done. I have struggled with different churches over the years and the church is in our hearts and our souls, or at least that is where my Jesus lives, and I know I have gone through worse than this, but not being finacially secure is a lot scary, so all your prayers would be appreciated. God Bless All and thanks Judy for the invite. God Love All Lisa N.
Prayers for abused children March 27, 2007 12:08 PM
If anyone would be so kind please pray that I will be successfulin helping child abuse victims and that I will be able to reach people to help.
Please pray that I am successsful in my quest at making my website successful in helping children and to get the lawmakers to realize that children do have to be protected.
Please pray that children's voices are heard and listened to. Please pray that abusive caregivers repent and turned their lives to Jesus and if needed volunteerially surrender their children for a whille.
Please pray that the states work with parents to help them be better parents and that when or if a parent seeks helk to stop harming the children that the parent is helped and not treating as a disgusting thing as that will only keep child abuse hidden and more children harmed.
Please pray for the child being beaten as you read this. Please pray for the child being molested at this moment and please pray for the children forced to be with pedophilie parents and the children who are refused to be with their protective parent. Please pray.
The children need prayers and I need prayers for strength to advocate for them as it is so draining and painful.
As I read your post my prayers are being sent to you. I understand and can identify with how you are a caregiver and are spread so thin. I myself have had many and very steep mountains that the Lord seemed to believe I needed to climb. As I tired, He carried me. I pray that you will find peace, comfort and rest. The Lord will not give you anymore than one person can bare, I know because I have carried a burden for many years. I send to you my deepest prayers.
Love & Hugs... Allie
And when you believe you can go on no more...the Lord will carry you.
Please pray for my husband Ron he has been diagnosed with Hep-C and he is going for a liver biopsy. Also, I have been fighting a lung infection since January, it seems that every day there is a new battle to fight and although I know the battle belongs to the Lord, I am very weary. I am a caregiver to my 47 year old brother who is severely disabled and in doing this for 12 years I think I have worn myself out. We need strength and healing. Thank you and Blessings!

Me, He sent on journey for truth on my own and I have become so much more closer to His almight love and grace. For each of us He has a plan. Seek and you shall find, ask and the answere will be given.
Hi, a personal prayer request for you and thanks for inviting me here. Jennifer.
Hi everyone, thought I would share with you something, may not be able to get it all out.
Has anyone come across this before?
When I first received Jesus, things were alright at South Perth Church of Christ church, it started when I moved toanother church when I came home from back the eastern states.
The church I came back to was ok, I moved to a different church Como Church of Christ cos a friend was there and invited me to join which I did. Anyway this church had a split in the church and eventually I left for a more lively church. Actually I left before I had even got around to deciding cos it was put to me by the stand in minister at the time. That was in 1971.
The next church I joined in 1971 until 1978 when I left was also over a split again. I am not going to go into the personalities of it all. Not worth it.
I left Church altogether then for 9 years and God spoke clearly to me that it was time to return and deal with my emotions. So I joined a church in the city centre in 1987 and again there was controversity. Things were not definately right with this one, and I left it simply didn't want to go back to it, or into the city centre. And my Mum had just passed away too in 1996.
So I went without a church for a few weeks or months then found one in Willagee which is where I want to stay. It is the area I live in, they decided to move out of the area and left but I didn't go with them. So back to being without a church again. Anyways, one day going passed a shop on my way to pay my car registration I noticed something in the window which caught my eye and on my way back stopped and entered the shop and found out that it is a small group of Believers, Christians. So I started going to this group, it was great being here for I was receiving teaching which I obviously needed. For a number of years everything went fine then things started happening, I soon learned what was happening cos it wasn't right what was going on in the service. Anyway another split happened, upheavel etc. this time however I stayed through it all. This was between say 1998 until 2003 and I persevered with them. Cos of the smallness of the church I was left in charge of children's church which had only the 2 grandsons of the pastor. But it was stressful for me cos I had no one with me for the wife of the pastor was needed in the church to take notes, and I had no experience. My twin sister had joined me here by now and even my brother Bob was saved etc through pastor Arthur and my other brother Mervyn was saved and then Jeanette leaves the church group in the city centre, no she had been going to a church now just a suburb or 2 from us . It was great having her there, but the following year pastor decided he was closing the church and moving to another church where he had received an invitation to join. Most of us went them him and his wife and family too in early 2004 that was.
I started going to this church group for a little while and then stopped going, finding i was getting tired and wishing he would hurry up and finish his message. Which is not like me, nor getting tired. Took me another 12 months to find out why Hypothyroidism. Anyway haven't been going there since except to the Luncheon Outreach on Wednesdays when it is on.
Then in 2005 my sister leaves the church and decides to go south to be near her granddaughters, she does have her reasons for leaving but is keeping things close to her heart which is ok with me but she did let a few things out and that does influence against them (Arthur and Pat). The original or senior pastor (Geof) had trouble with his wife and she left him, she had been having an affair. The senior pastor and his wifed tried to make things work but it didn't and she finally left him for good. He went on 3 months long service leave and then announced he was resigning from the church. I don't know what happened there are rumors etc but nothing specific and frankly I don't want to know but my problem is where do I go from here. God is moving in the church again, and this does happen and then the enemy gets in and spoils things. Sometimes I feel I just want a calm life or keep things on an even keel, but as a Christian it isn't what one is called to is it?
Can anyone advice me? Not tell me what I should do understand.
Please continue to give Cibby Your strength that is the foundation of her faith and courage to beat her cancer as You did for me. May all of our prayers and faith add to hers. May Your blessings and love continue to be all of our foundions that we all may grow to lend our hands to others.
