Heavenly Father-God. I Come before you today to ask for a financial blessing to improve my life. My faith keeps me strong, and I know you will provide for me and the people I love. I do not seek a large sum of money. I do not trouble you for unneeded comforts or luxury. I only ask for enough money to relieve my financial woes and ease this stress. Give me the means to do your work, and spread your Love. I have so much to give, if only I were allowed the chance. In Jesus Name.

I am asking for prayers for my good friend Nick. He has been diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma It is the type of curable - however, it is in his throat and neck. Unfortunately, it cannot be cured with chemo just radiation. His pain is so severe. He is supposed to intake 3000 calories a day.

Galen got a message about his job alluding to cuts and that they want to consider him for another role. He spoke with his boss who said that he is not in jeopardy, but others may be and that they like him and see a need for a sales project coordinator to get some more sales put through the pipeline. He and another person are being considered for the role. He is supposed to interview Monday or Tuesday. So we just give God glory in advance for whatever He will do. Thanking Jesus for our friends in Christ.

Appreciate your bold prayers over my tests from today. I had a follow up mammogram and sonogram and the Diagnostic Radiologist told me that I have two masses in my left breast, and she "is worried they are breast cancer." I BELIEVE IT IS NOT. PLEASE PRAY IN AGREEMENT WITH ME.  She's asked that my doctor order a needle biopsy or to have me see a surgeon. I really don't want to go back to them as I feel in my heart I need to be with the North Baptist Hospital Breast Center and the Christian doctors I met with recently about my book.Will you please pray for the doctor's wisdom to refer me there and for any and all further tests to reveal ABSOLUTELY NO CANCER, ALL IS BENIGN, TO HIS GREAT WILL AND GLORY. PLEASE PRAY IN FULL AGREEMENT WITH ME. THANK YOU! I HAVE NO DOUBT AND MY FAMILY HAS NO DOUBT, JESUS HAS THIS AND THAT THIS IS NOT BREAST CANCER. I've had a mass and lump before and God just took them away. PRAYING FOR THAT, TOO. YEAH JESUS! LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH ALWAYS! AMEN JESUS...TO GOD'S GLORY!

Hi, My name is Jason. I am not happy with myself these days because of life and mental struggles/issues/problems. I have some problems/issues with friends these days and I feel that people and the society are angry/upset/hating me for whom I am. I want to start new in 2018 but it has been very difficult with many past and current issues/problems. I have a lifelong battle living with high functioning autism, stress and anxiety and other bad feelings.  I want things to be better going forward not going backwards to the bad and horrible things. I just hope for 2018 to be better for me spiritually and mentally and physically. I also hope for people, society and peers to treat me better and be forgiving about the current and past issues and problems.  Pray for 2018 to be a new start to move forward and try to forget the bad past. Can you also pray for Grace Lee and Ann Park to continue to be my friends and that Grace Lee will come back to the churchs' hope ministry this year.  Thanks, Jason, Arcadia,California .U.S.A.

Please, please pray for my marriage and for my husband. He is really struggling to do what is right. He's been unfaithful though he won't admit it and although I've made it very clear that I love him and can get past this, he insists that there's no hope for our marriage. He's a really good man who made a huge mistake and i think guilt and shame are preventing him from getting past it. Please pray that he will have the courage to face what He's done and to ask God's forgiveness. Pray that he can get past this with me and work to restore our marriage and our family. He's so close to destroying our life together and tearing our children apart. Pray that the Holy Spirit will reach him in a way that I Can't, before he takes this too far. I know so many people have needs and i thank you for praying for ours.

Please dear devoted believers.  I am requesting prayers for my dearest cousin. Her name is Patricia. She has many health issues and is in severe incapacitating misery. Her hip is unbearable.

Prayers needed as my siblings & I make funeral arrangements today for our Dad who went to heaven yesterday. He was 97 years old. He was an awesome Dad to my brothers & I. He was well until Tuesday when he fell at the long term care facility in Windsor, Canada. He broke his hip, was hospitalized but due to his failing heart, liver, and kidneys he was at a major risk of not surviving the surgery. So he was transported back to the long term care facility where the familiar/ loving staff could attend to him, keep him comfortable & pain free. There was a constant vigil at his bedside. My siblings, my Mom and I were at his bedside as he took his last breath. My Dad was a vet and he died the day after Veteran's day.

November 4:
I am a nineteen-year-old college student that currently lives with my father. Right now, I have a near-constant desire to leave this home and move somewhere else, Unfortunately, I have nowhere to go. Please pray for a road to be opened so that I may leave without being homeless. This is not an arbitrary feeling. My father is an abusive, bitter, addict who has no desire to do better in his own life or treat others better. I also cannot talk about religion with him.  He is an almost militant atheist you could say. This feels more like a need than a desire to be honest.
November 3:

November 1:
Please pray for Diane and her husbsnd: Lord, you know what is in Diane's heart and you know the struggle her marriage is facing. Please help her to refocus her heart toward her husband. Help her to remember why she loves him and give her the courage to recommit herself to him, and to resist seeking love from any other man. Lord, help her to see the devastating impact she is having, not just on her family, but on ours. I don't know her husband but you do, Lord. Please give him what he needs so that he can lift her up and love her despite any difficulties they have had in their relationship, and any brokenness that either of them are dealing with. Please, Jesus, bring about the breakthrough that they need to restore love, commitment and unity to their marriage. In Jeses' name, Amen!
