Prayers from Western Maryland for you in Oregon (my home state). Depression is not always "figure-outable." Try reading something spiritual, moving your body (even a little), picking one tiny task (put the cereal away), and hopefully one more small, easy step will come after that. Blessings.

Thanks for your prayers for those with cancer. My husband's sister has been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and now they think it might be spreading or more advanced than they first thought. She is 46 and has a 2 1/2 year old daughter. They lost their first two babies, and this one was a surprise near the end of my mother-in-law's ordeal with cancer 3 years ago. She had complications (infection from the port for the chemo). My sister-in-law has one more biopsy plus genetic testing to go before surgery (beginning of Sept). The results of the tests will determine whether she has a lumpectomy or a mastectomy as well as the subsequent treatment.

Remember our political process. May Almighty God give us clear headed leaders who lead according to the precepts in the Holy Bible. Dear Lord make us ever mindful of your promise" If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray - then I will forgive their sins and heal their land".

Thank you for those that prayed along with me as I went to see the Cardio Dr. He said everything looked great!! I do not need to go back for 2 years so that is a BIG plus. He said for me to keep doing what I have been doing and to keep having them do B/P and other blood test and that before long I might be able to cut down or stop some of my meds!!! Praise God for answered prayers!

MY HUSBAND - FROM WHOM I AM SEPARATED - IS REFUSING TO SIGN A DOCUMENT TO THAT EFFECT SO THAT I CAN AGAIN RECEIVE COMMUNION IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. PRAY THAT HE SEES THAT BY DENYING ME THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE THE EUCHARIST, HE WILL HAVE TO ANSWER TO GOD FOR THAT.

Look for the happiness - every single day.

My son is desperately in need of prayers. He suffers from PTSD and it interferes at times with his daily functioning. He is a single parent who is pretty much alienated from his son. I can't believe this has happened to my family. Please remember us in your prayers there is so much pain.

Many of you have seen me write about my Sister. Last week Wednesday she passed away. She was 71 and with her drinking she had many health issues, but her heart gave up. It has been a hard time for all of us. I told them to let her go and stop working on her when they asked. Chris told me he would have done the same. Please keep my family in your prayers. Thanks.

I started a Dieters Daily Devotional through Cross Walk. I find it interesting and inspiring.
Thank you for allowing me to share this with you.


Hebrews 9:23
It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices then these.

I took a youth group to a play on Good Friday once while I was fasting. All I could think of was how hungry I felt. I was a little cranky, and I found it difficult to concentrate on the play. Suddenly, I looked at the face of the young man who played Christ. His face was contorted with the pain and suffering of our Lord. I looked at a face which truly mirrored everything Jesus had been through, and I was ashamed at myself for the self-pity I had indulged in. When I compared my minor discomforts with the true sufferings of Jesus, I realized I had nothing whatsoever to complain about.

Today's thought: I will think of what I have, rather than what I have not!

There are mornings when I start to pray and songs just start flowing through my brain and out of my mouth. When I finish I find the songs I sang covered what I was going through. Happy to hear that others feel the same way. I also think God speaks to me through songs.I want to thank those that prayed for me this week. It was a better week ,still stressful but not as bad as it has been so again thanks!
God bless you all

I'm so glad to find this prayer chain! Praise music and hymns help me pray when I'm afraid or discouraged. A year ago, "Whom Shall I Fear? (God of Angel Armies)" became my anthem (listened to it all the way to the hospital and sang it softly til they put me under for my mastectomy). Other go-to songs are "Greater" by MercyMe, and "Blessings" by Laura Story, especially the last stanza. Maybe these will help some of you when you find it hard to pray, or the Enemy just tries to keep you from praying. God bless you, new friends!
PS: Surgery got it all, praise the Lord!

James 5:16
"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective."

My health is more important to me than that temptation.

If you want something bad enough, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

I am 80lbs over weight, have type 2 diabetes , high blood pressure, & high cholesterol . I want to serve my Lord in all areas of my life, I know the Lord will help me but I am weak in this area of my life. So I thought with prayer & friends who understand what I'm going through & with God that I can tackle this. So thank you for praying and I will be praying for you too. emoticon

Prayer is so powerful and knowing that others are praying too gives me great comfort and strength. I've got a lot of weight to lose. I've lost 22lbs of the 100 I want to get rid of for good. I'm taking it 28lbs at a time so soon will tick off the first marker!! Praying for you team. 🙏🙏

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

I just got the results of my wellness lab tests from my employer. My triglycerides, glucose, A1C are all elevated. I also have about 50 pounds to lose. I've found that this has been a true wake up call. I've been having nightmares at night since I got my results. I'm at the place where I have to do this. Prayer and focusing on Jesus is my strength. I'll keep all of you in my prayers.

Good morning to all and congratulations on what you have done. I have about 50 pounds to lose and am a diabetic so I have to take one day at a time but with God's help I can do this and be free of diabetes and extra weight. My prayers will go out to each of you.

BlueBrown2 - They key is to prep healthy food that you can grab quickly and to get rid of the unhealthy convenience food. Fresh fruit is always good. Make a chopped salad and keep it in an airtight container in the fridge. I cut up an entire package of boneless, skinless chicken breast into bite size pieces and put them in a zip lock baggie so they're always ready to cook. I cook them in a marinade so I don't use oil and they cook quickly because they're so small. Good luck to you as I know it is stressful.

Progress, not Perfection

Please pray for me. I should not have had to join this team. I joined SparkPeople in 2008 and reached my goal of 145 in 2009. I kept the weight off until 2011 when a dear friend passed away. Since then, I have let my emotions get me back into old eating habits and my exercise in none. I have not gained everything back but I'm back over 190. My prayer request is that I can get back to healthy eating and back on an exercise program and get off the couch.

Thank you all.

Visit my team "Vacation / Travel Support Team

It's set up for people who need support while away from home, whether it business or pleasure.

Prayers to all who have opened their doors to family and friends to live with them. Help them Lord, and give them all the tools needed to facilitate living together. Help them to have the courage to say the things that need to be said, without anger or resentment. Thank you for your bounty and graciousness.

Thanks, to all of you as this is encouraging to me. We live a highly stressful life as my son and daughter in law moved in with us. They have three children ages 2 and under. I am finding that I eat anything that is quick and easy to grab. I am working on turning this over to God. Each day is a new beginning and hopefully I will submit to Him and make good decisions. Prayers are welcome as I begin this walk.

Try not to stress about decorating for Christmas! I keep reminding myself. Christmas is in the heart! Enjoy other people's attempts at decorating. Go to Christmas programs. Sing carols. Listen to carols. Pray and thank God for sending us Jesus. I just finished my cards today and mailed them. I enjoy receiving cards too. I'll pray for you to get off the drug and over the drug's effects. You'll feel better soon. :)

I am having a really bad time getting off a 'mild' antidepressant. I weaned down as instructed by my doctor and it's been hell. So sick this past week I've not been out of the house and nothing is trimmed for Christmas. It's the first time I can remember not having my tree up by now. However the dizziness, spaciness, and profuse sweating is getting better. Please send up a prayer that this goes away and I can resume 'normal' life.

Without change, there would be no butterflies!

emoticon Prayer shifts your focus away from the problem to the One who can give you the answer, solution, or next step to take. Prayer takes your focus off yourself and your pain and confusion to the Father, who knows all controls all, has all power and is all loving.

When I realized that I was addicted to food, and turned it over to Him, the light came on. I stumble, but he has sent me the tools and information I need. He has sent the life boat, and the oars. I just need to use them.

He will do the same for you. It helps if you ask!

I pray that God sends us the answers to our prayers. To be able to live in harmony with His wishes and have a relationship with food that Glorifies him. Amen

It sounds like you are at least maintaining your number of pounds lost which is a win win situation This Time Of Year with so many temptations available to you. This will pass. Hang in there and stay strong until next month. I will pray for you.

My weight has been going down a pound -- up two -- down two - up one. I'm losing but it for the last month or two it seems so erratic. This week I can feel the enemy telling me to give up -- that I'm never going to get it off -- I've reached my limit.

I KNOW he is a liar -- and I pray every day for God to help me -- but please pray that I get my determination back.
Thanks
Bev

like many things I think going through the motions leaves the door open. Go to an inspiring church, spend time outdoors alone looking at the sky and water and trees, listen to a Christian music channel or Christmas songs this time of year.

God grant me the courage to change the things I can.

Glad to find this Prayer Chain ... I'm not exactly new to SparkPeople ... just have been gone a long time ... and now it's time to start again. Since the last time I was here, both my parents have passed. I've read your prayer requests and have agreed in my heart and spirit to continue daily to check in here to pray for each of you. Tonight I will be meeting with a Bible study group that is unique. We have a volunteer translator because more than half of those attending speak Spanish and the rest of us have very limited Spanish understanding. I request prayers for these families as they are searching the scriptures to see what God's Word says.

May God richly bless you

I am asking for prayers for myself. I am just getting over strep throat. I did sleep better last night and am hoping to sleep even better tonight. Today my cough is so much better than it has been, but I didn't go to church because I don't want to cough all over everyone. I am supposed to sub tomorrow so I am hoping I continue to feel better.

Prayer for the World Leaders meeting at the G20 conference in Turkey today and tomorrow. They were suppose to talk Economics & Trade -- but are discussing Terrorism. Pray for Godly Wisdom. France has declared war on ISIS and an official stated this could lead to World War III -- so we need to pray for the World until this is resolved. We TRUST in HIM and HIM alone!

Thanks for the message MAR6K1E5E I am just now seeing it. I have now lost almost 30 pounds I have 26 left to go.Thankfully I am out of the obese BMI category and in the over weight BMI. I pray every day for continued strength. I am looking at this as a healthy living change. I feel better, please continue to pray for me. I didn't think you were gloom and doom, smiles but I do need friends. I will check this board and continue to pray for those who have needs posted. This can be a difficult journey and we could all use the prayers and support of others.

Regards, Donna

Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance!

Slim is where I wanted to be in 201o & 2011! Never happened, plateaued for a long time and gave up... got off track, but never left, so am back on track again!!! Make 2012 my year! So far, did finally lose 25 lbs. over the summer, but have found about 11 of it so far, it didn't hide good enough...
and lost it again in 2013... going down to 175 this fall, and staying there...this time!

Good for you. This is hard work and I'm not clear in my mind about whether I stick to this journey to reach my goals.
This is the plan and I'm going to work it. I'm not going to stop until I reach my goals or I'm not going to succeed. I don't want to gain it back. I'm positive that you didn't want to gain your weight back. I guarantee that you will get seriously sick carrying the weight with consequences of death from a heart attack, stroke or diabetes. I don't want to do that any more. Think that I'm above that.
I don't want to be your doom and gloom friend. I want to be a supportive friend.

I don't know what I would do if I didn't have God. He is my confidante and friend. I just keep adking for strength to resist what Satan puts in front of me. For a long time I blamed God for not helping me, but He always led me to where I needed to get the help, like Spark. He gave me free will to choose and sometimes I just don't want to do what's good for me and that is my choice, even though not a good one.

Hey I'm so glad to find believers in Christ! Prayer is so powerful and I would love for all to pray that the Lord gives me the will to lose 60 lbs and get my A1c down from 10. I am just now realizing that my body is God's temple and I have not taken good care of it. I pray that He will give me the power to get healthy so that I may serve Him with all my mind, heart and soul for as long as I am here on this earth! I will pray for all of you too!
