Prayer is a powerful thing, and it would be a blessing to us if we could pray for you. If you want your prayer request to be posted on this web page so as many people as possible will pray for you, all you need to do is tell us in your e-mail, and we will place it here. Otherwise we will keep your prayer request private.

Please keep the Men and women who are in the military in your prayers. Abraham Lincoln once said"The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong. God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time." Let us pray that our nation is doing the right thing in His sight.

Please pray for Cheryl and her son. The marriage between her and her husband broke up and she is feeling very hurt, and humiliated. She is worried about what the future will hold for her too. Please pray for her that she can lean on God, and trust in Him.

From Robbie

I had asked you to pray for my daughter Sarah that she would get into nursing school this fall. Well I am happy to report that she did get in after someone else dropped out. Now the real work begins. I appreciate your prayers so much. If we should come to your mind in the future I would appreciate your prayers for us. For Sarah, that she will persevere in school and finish well and that she will continue to look to God and grow in grace. For my son-in-law that he will turn his life over to God and for me that I will be faithful in prayer and trust God completely. Thank you for praying for someone you don't even know. You have blessed and encouraged me.

From Sharon

I'm sending this e-mail requesting prayers for my friend Mary. As many of you already know, in 10/03 Mary was diagnosed with breast cancer. Later, they found a spot on her lung that was also cancer. She responded well to treatment and was hoping to continue her recovery when she had a seizure on 9/30/04. Test results found 2 tumors in her brain. Yes, more cancer. Again, she received treatment with hopes of reducing the size of the tumors. On 12/24/04, she found out one tumor responded to treatment, but not the other. On 1/17/05, Mary will undergo a procedure to attack that tumor.

Mary is a strong young lady and she believes in the power of prayer. Please pray for her & her family. She is married and has 3 sons (7, 8 & 10yrs old).

Thank you and God Bless,

From: Michelle

About a year ago I went thru a really bad time in my life. I took a couple things from my job, lost a baby, drank a lot, and basically stopped caring. I relocated to a different state in August of this year and I have made amazing changes in my life. I began going to church, started a charity, and have a very happy life. However, now it is time to go to court for the things I took. My prayer request is that I am able to stay in my new life and continue to grow in Christ. I pray that I can overcome my past and make a difference with my life.
