Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting today as we bring to you our Prayers for the Week. This week, we are focusing not so much on an individual theme, but rather, on a set of verses that you can turn to no matter what the situation is you find yourself in. We’re calling these our Bible Emergency Numbers.
In the image above, you see a list of conditions, and next to each one, a specific Bible reference to look to for God’s guidance and wisdom for you. As we look at our requests this week, I’ll attempt to share with each one what I think is where you should look, based on this list. I hope that together we can find the Peace of God imbued in us once more, despite our circumstances.
Prayer Requests and Praises
- My friend Mikel has a prayer request: For my good friend Pamela. Mikel, I’m not sure what the specific request is, so you’ll know better, but perhaps reading Romans 8 is a good start.
- I have a private prayer request as well; prayers for the children of broken families; prayers that the parents would not take out their anger and frustration out on the children; prayers that everyone involved in a divorce would put their children first. Prayers that God would reach down to them all and touch them with His loving touch, and that they would appreciate what they have more. See John 14, Psalm 27, Matthew 6:19-34, and more.
- Leslie has a prayer request: I have a lot of friends in the path of this hurricane/tropical storm that would love some prayers! See Psalm 91.
- Stephanie needs prayers for Lindsay. See Matthew 6:19-34.
- My friend Heather has a prayer request: Been diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease by 2 doctors. A relief to know what is wrong finally but prayers to get it under control. Heather, see Psalm 23 for a reminder that God is with you, and He will take care of you.
- Maureen has a prayer request: Peace and clarity. Maureen, see Matthew 11:25-30.
- My cousin Deb has a request: We need to move so prayers needed that God will lead & provide. Deb, read Psalm 121, it’s speaking to you.
- My friend Jon has a prayer request: Asking for prayers for my Momma. She’s had a rough week. She’s been having back pain and nauseous all week. Spent the evening at Mary Rutan where we found out her sodium was extremely low. They transferred her to St Rita’s to see a specialist to find out why her sodium is so low. Thank you. Jon, read Psalm 23 to your Momma, and remind her that God’s here for her now and will take care of her. Also, read to her Matthew 11:25-30, and for yourself, read Matthew 6:19-34.
- My friend Mrs. Lucas has a prayer request: Mickey, please pray my pneumonia will clear up soon and pray that God leads us to the right candidate for Christians in the election! Love you! Mrs. Lucas, read Psalm 23 and Matthew 11:25-30 for your illness, and also Psalm 90 for the election prayers.
- My friend Hiro has a prayer request: Mike thank you for this. Thank you for praying for my children’s health!
Could you pray for my daughter. She is entering middle school, and we are all anxious. I hope that she makes wise choices and is a good friend as well as for her having good friends. That she doesn’t get tempted to do bad things and she continues to do well in school. And also for her safety as well.
It gets scary as they grow older… As you probably know!
Say hi to your family for me.Hiro, check out Matthew 6:19-34, and also, even though it isn’t listed in these, check out Philippians 4:13. That one verse will serve your daughter and all your children well in school!
- As always, we also pray for those that are afraid to ask for prayer, or for those that don’t know the words to say. To those, I suggest we read Hebrews 11, Psalm 139, and Psalm 19.
Now, please join us as we pray the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray:
Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those that trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom, and Power, and Glory
Forever and ever. Amen.
