I ask this team to pray for my family. All of them are in some kind of pain. I am asking you to pray that they grow closer to God through their pain, and also bring glory to God as they are in pain. I had a cat scan and it came back with no mass found. I am in a lot of pain, but I know God has healed me. I have not gone to bed due to the fact that I hurt so much. I ask you to pray that I continue to grow in the fruit of patience through my pain. I glorify God because He has brought so much peace in my life even I have been suffering since December. God covers me, He wraps my mind, body, and spirit with His ever present grace. He keeps my husband in prayer trusting within HIm. As my spirit lingers within my God I rest within Him. My God you are my every thing!!!

Please pray for a single man here on Sparkpeople who has lost his wife to cancer. I feel he is looking for someone special to meet. I ask that you pray that his heart is healed, and that he grows in his relationaship with God.

Dear Jesus please have me to do your will according to helping this man if it is your will at all. Please help him in the ways that he needs help. I leave this in your will, and ask you to magnify yourself within this man's life. In Jesus name I pray amrn.

Thank you, Missy! I would not be where I am on this journey without this Team. This is where I found my motivation, along with a daily desire to keep on going and feeling that desire and motivation Daily. It's a Team which puts the focus on God at the center.

We have an emoticon God! emoticon with God at our side!

emoticon emoticon I'm forever Grateful! emoticon I'll always have a
love for this Team which has always helped me see this journey works better with God as a
part of your Team. I know this is why I was able to get to my goal. I tried it for over 4 years with TOPS. When I left that group after4 years and four months, I was only 5 pounds lighter. It only took me 8 months and 2 and 1/2 weeks to lose more than my original goal with TOPS. Our group lacked in motivation. I definitey found all that I needed with a push from a Leader here on February 4th, 2012. emoticon

It is so good to see both of you Shelly & Missy. You are both so very kind and thoufghtful to this Team. We are so very blest to have you as our Leaders.
May God bless you both for all you do.
It is thru this Team that I became serious about my health and forming a diet plan.
I'm happy to say since I reached my goal on October 23, 2012, I lost 4 pounds after that and have been on maintenance for 18 weeks now. I feel very blest that I've maintained it.
I most certainly know that all the things of importance in my life, I cannot do those things on my own. I need God to be a part of all that is important. I don't ask God for help with foolish things. As a young girl growing up and before I grew in wisdom, I know I asked God to help me to attain foolish things.
God has been wonderful to me and has blest me in so many ways. I felt the need to say this . I thank God in prayer for those prayers answered and His many blessings.
I will be praying for Deb, praying that her suffering will leave her and that she will be filled with God's peace & Grace.

please pray for my friend's ex husband. A few days ago he was on a very high bridge sitting there about to jump! God was watching and taking care of him. Before he was able to jump a police officer came and was able to get him back down. He is in a hospital now receiving treatment.

Dear Jesus please continue to keep Skip in your arms and care. Please help him to receive the help that he needs. Help him to not feel helpless anymore but to feel strong in you. In Jesus name I pray amen.

Here's a new update on Joshua...
I convinced him to start taking the lower dosage of the medicine that the doctor gave him.
Praise! It is working! He is not getting the side effects he had before and seems to be sleeping once again.
I also suggested he start exercising, taking walks or something more active, along with a suggested exercise to help curb the dizziness.
So we are progressing!
It will take a while before all the vertigo goes away and for the medicine to take full effect.
but things are getting better each day.

Please continue to pray for Joshua and his health. He still gets a few panic episodes every so often that sets off the anxiety.
Thanks for your prayers!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi all,
I was asked today about my son Joshua, so I will give an update for you.
Josh went and bought himself a new bed and box spring so he could sleep again in
his bedroom. He had been spending nights on the couch in the living room and
not getting to sleep on time because of it.
He is getting some more and better sleep now thanks to the new mattress.

However, he won't take the medicine given to him by the doctor to help with his vertigo and anxiety. It is believed that the two symptoms are feeding on each other. The medication
makes things worse for him and makes him sick as well. The doctor suggested a lower
dosage, but Joshua still will not take it as he is afraid of being too sick to go to work.
We are trying some different ways to get him to calm down at night so he won't be so riled up and unable to sleep. I'm making some suggestions that were given to me by my sleep specialist for my own problems to see if they will help.

Josh said he is getting some better sleep, but I think he still suffers from the dizziness and
vertigo at night.

Please continue to pray for his healing. Sleep is coming slowly for him and he is getting more sleep at night. But he still needs to get over the anxiety and dizziness.

Thanks for your prayers,
Sue emoticon

A student of mine lost his step mom two days ago. He has also lost his real mom, and his brother in the last three years. I am concerned for Bruce. He is having a hard time dealing with things and this was before his step mom died who has become very much to him his real mom in these last few years. As all of my other adult students in my Sunday school class he is also mentally challenged. He has a lot of social issues, and I just ask you to all pray for Bruce and the family, and our church as well. The woman who died, Shirley has left a HUGE whole in Bruce's heart, and in my church as well.

Dear Jesus continue to keep Bruce and his family in your care. Please continue to get them your love, peace, grace, and support. In Jesus name I pray amen.

Poor Joshua! That has to be so frustrating. I definitely will keep him in my prayers. I'm sure Sue, that you his Mom must worry alot about him. I will pray that they find the right medicine to work for him, or they get what he is on regulated to the right amount.
Be sure to share his progress, and updates on how he's doing. May God bless Joshua, putting His healing Hands upon him and keeping Joshua in His most loving, tender care.

Thank you Janis for your prayers.
I checked out your post on Accountability and responded to it. Very nice post! emoticon

I have an update on Joshua. He came home early today from work.
It turns out that his new medication kept him awake all night last night and then caused
nausea and dizziness as well. Common side effects but got them all at once.
He is going to try to take a lower dosage and take it in the morning instead of at night.
Please pray the meds will work for him and that he will get his sleep.
Otherwise we will contact the doctor to see if he can find something else for him.

Thanks for your prayers,

Good Morning Sue,
It is frustrating when you are trying to sleep but then have something going on that is making it impossible, plus being dizzy can cause other things such asnausea. I believe when you are lying down and if the vertigo makes you feel as though you're spinning, you can feel sick to your stomach. Even if a person wasn't feeling feeling the nausea, the vertigo alone I believe would keep you from any slumber. emoticon Joshua being a mechanic needs to be alert and rested for sure. I will be thinking of him and praying for him.

I made a new post on Accountability on Monday. For now, it has only been you & I. I know Shelly had conveyed to me, She, you & I will be the three on that team, as we are the ones who,ve been using it. Shelly is so busy that she probably has forgotten to go there emoticon She is doing so many good deeds how can she remember them all or have time to do them all? She sure is a precious soul to so many of us.
I won't be seeing Jessica the Life Coach for at least awhile which might mean 3 weeks to a month. I have too many Doctors to see with appointments coming up but I know I can make an appointment with her easily.
I must get moving now as I need to leave home in an hours and have oodles of things to get ready includung myself.

Hi Janis,

I am so glad to hear your meeting went well.
It is always good to hear good news.
Hope your next meeting goes as well.
I am sorry I did not mention Joshua's age. He is 23, a young adult. He works as
an auto mechanic and needs to get his sleep. emoticon

Thank you for your prayers, Sue. My meeting went very well with the Life Coach. I never dream how wonderful it would be. I was so relaxed, and I could understand her so well. When I couldn't figure out what the word was I would ask her. She's from Germany and has what she calls a heavy accent. She's such a wonderful person. I appreciate all you prayers Sue. I had a few others who were praying for me too. Oh, how I believe in the power of prayer. It was a wonderful session. I will meet with her again.
How old is Josh? I don't recall seeing if you mentioned if he was a young child, or possibly a teenager. I pray they will find the right medicine to work for him, or that he will overcome the vertigo. Please keep us updated, Sue.

Thanks for your prayers!
My son Josh went to the doctor today and the doctor prescribed some meds for his anxiety.
His dizziness is assumed to be caused by lack of sleep as are some of the other problems that are popping up. So he will be working on getting some good sleep at night.
Please pray the medicine will work for him and he can get some much needed sleep.
Hopefully he will be able to get to the point where he can be medicine free!

Will be praying for your meeting with your life coach Janis. I hope it helps you with your
need for organization. Looks like you are getting some things done. Easy does it...one thing at a time so you don't get too confused.

I will pray for Greg's successful surgery and recovery, for Joshua's help in medicine to help him with sleep and to have the vertigo go away. I pray for the prayer needs of this group as a whole.
I'm suppose to meet with a Life Coach later this afternoon (4:15pm). She is suppose to help me organize & I guess prioritize. Back in October, I was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Mine is more the ADD but my mind is racing all over the place. I've had this all my life and found out at the age of 66 that I have this. They're trying to find the right medicine and right dose for me. So far, I am only seeing it help with not getting as sleepy durring the day. I know alot of it is going to be learning things.
The Life Coach has a heavy accent (maybe Polish?) I'm hoping I'll be able tounderstand her. It's going to cost $50. an hour. She wants me, or rather she suggested I take a tablet to take notes. I don't know why I didn't tell her I'm so poor at note taking. I guess I'll just do my best.
Please pray for me. It seems I feel more scattered that ever, as I'm trying to downsize and priortize. It's so overwhelming to me. I'm working on it. Believe me I have conglomerations of way too much. Yesterday I was happy with myself that I was able to go through Boughten video & audio casettes, and a couple DVDs to bring to St. Vincent DePauls. I also had some items for a support group that is important to me. Ive been getting rid of clothes. I also have decorative things I begun to give away. I'm hoping I will highly benefit from this dear woman who is a Life Coach. She was highly recommended by one of my Doctors.
I will pray for each of you and your prayer requests, and I do so much appreciate your prayers for me. emoticon emoticon Janis

Sue I have said some payers and will continue to pray for your son Josh.

God please to continue to cover Josh with your grace love and care. Please magnify the Holy Spirit within Him so that your shining presence is known to Josh. Be within his doctors in a mighty way Lord so that he will be healed through you. God at this time if anyone is to learn of anything which would bring them closer to you at this time allow this circumstance to reveal yourself to them. In Jesus name I pray amen,

Hi all,
I would like to ask for prayer for my son, Joshua.
He has been having some health issues lately that do not have any known causes at this time.
He has trouble falling asleep at night due to dizziness and vertigo. Laying down triggers it.
He also is dealing with anxiety due to the unknowns of his health.
He is taking meds for the anxiety and vertigo, but not all of them seem to be working.
Josh is scheduled for a doctor appointment tomorrow to discuss what is going on.
Please pray Joshua will be able to sleep at night and not be so anxious about things.
Please pray for wisdom for the doctor that he will be able to help Joshua and prescribe a good method of treatment.
Thank you!
Sue

I always look for your postings,Shelly. I don't know how but I did not see the long one you wrote this morning until a little while ago. i only saw the one about the parishioners prayer requests this afternoon. I was gone this morning to my Chiropractor, so thar is probably how I never saw it. If I was suppose to get an email telling me about it being heeeeeere I didn't. I don't have any idea Shelly if this may have anything to do with a prayer you wanted me to copy. I would not have any way of knowing. I enjoyed reading it and I know God must be our source of aid in our lives, and He wants us to call on Him. Thank you for posting spiritual food for us!

Hi Shelley,
I am so glad to see you back on here.
I want to let you know that I agree with your statement in your last message about asking God
and listening to His answers. When we ask God and let Him do His work in us and around us, so many exciting things can happen. Even when we go through the trials that come our way.
I would like to invite you to read my last blog that I wrote this week on how to deal with depression. It points to this very idea, using depression as an example of an illness people often face.
I will be doing a followup on the blog soon.
Meanwhile I continue to pray for you and the prayer requests noted here.
May God bless you and those who are currently going through their own trials.

emoticon Thanks so much for your replies.I am so happy and gtafeful, and excited to feel back to my normal healthy self! emoticon Later this afternoon I am going to be able to do something for an adult mentally challenged man that I am an advocate for. It will be so to see him, although he calls me a lot so we have been tlaking.

I just thank and praise God for helping me as He always does. It has not been easy but as I stayed within His word, and put God in the focus of my pain I was able to get through the toughest hardest hours of pain which the medicine was not easing. It is through God during times of your life that God gives you the strength to endure as you are suffering through much pain. It is very important to heart fully praise God during these times. I humbly share with you that I have been able to praise God a few times when I was able to go to chinch these last two months. I told people that I had talked to that God had already healed me through my spirit, I just had to walk it out, that His healing would manifest within my body within His time. People were effected by my words... you know, you could see it in their faces. But God is to be glorified through me sharing this with you, not ME at all! Everything is through gGod and about God.

So I encourage you no matter what you are going through thank God for your circumstances even though it IS painful. Ask him some simple questions and wait for Him to answer you. He WILL if you believe and wait for Him. He will tell you through a friend, a song, an animal, a Pastor (or some other church figure) a movie....I mean God will use any one and anything to talk to you. So be alert and pray, and listen… and I encourage you to ask God these questions:

QUESTIONS TO ASK GOD WHILE GOING THROUGH CIRCUMSTANCES:

1). How can I glorify you through this?

2) What to you want me to learn spiritually through this?

3) God how can I honor you through this.

4) How can I grow closer to you through this?

There are other questions you can ask God to which will enrich your circumstance. Don't ever waste your pain, stress or circumstances always use to bring glory to god through it. I will tell you by asking these questions, by reading the bible, and keeping God the center of it all you will lead people closer to God. Ad you just might also bring an unbeliever to god. It is not necessary our powerful words about God, nor our preaching of God, or shoving a bible down someone’s threat that will lead a person to God bring him in closer, rather it is our ACTIONA that they we in us. It is our wards that we speak, such as I prayers and although nothing has changed yet I KNOW God is helping me. I am in so much pain, but God has giving me His grace. My friend such witness to God such action, they touch a person’s spirit, and god works in the rest!

Love you all and soooo glad to be back. I still have some pain, I am pacing myself but my spirit is soaring!!! emoticon

Thanks so much Sue for your loving post and prayer, and I thank you as well Missy, I know you too are keeping me in your prayers. I also thank everyone else how have prayed for me.

Well, Sue your prayers could not have come at a better time because about 1and 1/2 hours after I wrote that post below I was in the emergency room! Then many hours later I had my gallbladder taken out.

It has been a 2 weeks now since my surgery, I still have pain but it has greatly reduced since the date of the surgery. The pain killers are working better since I am only taking 1-3 for all day. This week one day I did not need to take the strong pain medicine at all. My incisions are now healing to a greater degree. Soon i will be back to my normal healthy self!

I will post an update of my health (above this post), although it is a few days old.

Oh Shelly,
I am so glad to see you on here.
It seems so long since we have heard much from you.
I am so sorry that you are still not feeling better. You say this started with a cold??? Unbelievable! You have been through so much, yet you encourage me through your trust in God during this time.
I continue to hold you up in my prayers whenever God brings you to mind which is frequently.
I pray now that the Lord will relieve the pain you are feeling due to the gallstones. They can
be extremely painful. The succession of the pain and then relief may be due to the passing of the stones through your body. The pressure is off once they pass through.

Dear Lord, I ask for your healing hand on Shelly. I pray you will stop her body from producing the gallstones. Relieve the pain she is feeling. Heal her completely from the continuation of various diseases that are attacking her body. I ask for your strength for Shelly, and for peace and comfort so she can get the rest she needs.
Lord, You have helped Shelly to do the work you have for her and when she is sick she cannot do that work. Please wrap your arms around her and protect her from the attacks of Satan.
Satan, Be gone in the name of Jesus! Shelly belongs to Jesus and thus you cannot touch her! Be gone NOW!
Dear Lord Please relieve Shelly of the pain she is experiencing right now and help her get a good night's sleep tonight. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen!

We look forward to the new posting you have for us in God's time. Until then, may you be pain free and sleep well my sister.
Take care and God be with you.
Love you,
Sue emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Fridaty2:00 am- I know it is Fri. but it feels like Thursday because I have not gone to bed. I am in too much pain to sleep.

Hi everyone! emoticon I am still pretty sick. Well, it is a long story all the things I have been through. I have tried to keep the team updated. It all started with a cold can you believe it! emoticon About every 3-5 or sometimes 7 days I have a near pain free day. Each day the pain is getting worse and worse though.

It first I had a cold (December 5th) I believe ....I yes, I DID post about the history of my medical issues. So, let's just let me catch everyone up to the latest:

I was suppose to get an ultrasound, however due to a few reasons that now been put off until Jan.22md. (It is a long story and i am not sure how long I can sit here and type. I am in a lot of pain, but basically I always am in a lot of discomfort or in pain.) I had an appointment with my doctor Jan 22nd but for whatever reason my doctor needs to go/do something on that day so now I have to wait until Jan. 31st. Trust me, it could be worse!

Basically all of my pain at this point is due to my gallbladder. However, a few weeks ago I did have Pleurisy, which was extremely painful. That lasted between 2-3 weeks. Although I have never been pregnant I feel as though I am. I feel like I am ready to pop! Thank goodness I never had to lug a baby around in my belly!!! I suppose that carrying a baby in your stomach is much better, at least you have something wonderful to look forward to, right.

All in all I count this as a blessing, although I will be honest at times it is very hard. I am using this time to praise God while I am in pain. As in all things God is with me, and today I very humbly share that yesterday I wrote a very good post called, Balancing your calorie check book. I still have to proof read it and correct some errors after I do those two things I will post it for the team. (you know I am very bad at typing and don't always catch my spelling errors spell check misses). God is good ALL the time! He gave me an idea to write about and I think the team will like if when they read it.

Lasty night I was talking to my friend Lora (user name Purpleoncegirl- Missy you play games with her on the computer). It was great talking to her. She lives very far from me but we have been friends since.... well we have been friends for 22 years. We met when we were 21 yrs. old & we lived in the same subdivison for 7 years, then I moved to Ohio where I currently live. We talk to each other on the phone 3-5 times a year sometimes more. We always send eaqch other messages. The last time we talked on the phone before 2 days ago was in November, last year. I told her all about being sick. Before we hung up she said that she would pray for God to take away my galstones. I said, "Hey, God CAN do anything, I like that prayer!" Well the next day I woke up and had no pain. Although it was cold the sku was blue, and I ralked a litle while on the phone to a few people and got something organized. thenI started writing that post i need to finish. As the day passed by I thought, man God just could have taken away my gallstones, I know if it is HIs will he surely COULD. I thought about itand U told myself, I accept it as done, time will tell. I felt well enough to go to Hobby Lobby to buy some beads for making a bracelet, and necklace some time. On the way home I started to feel some pain. However, it was nice to get out with my husband even though we were only gone for about a half an hour, or actually less than. As the evening went on so did the pain, at times pretty intense. I spend a lot of times these days lyn on thre couch, it takes the pressure off my stomach.

Praying for divine protection for your daughter. All of you, wash your hands a lot! Don't use antibacterial soap or solutions as they have been proven to be quite dangerous. Soap and water do the trick. Remember to lather your hands up for an adequate time, the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday to You twice. Spray or wipe down door handles, toilet handles, phones, remotes, anything people touch often in a day with Lysol or Clorox or something similar so this crud doesn't spread. Pray over your homes!

Hi all,
I am keeping you in my prayers, Shelly. We hope you will be back soon well and healthy...healed by the Great Physician Himself. May He continue to keep you in His
arms of care and heal you of your illness.

Please pray also for me and a friend of mine.
I found out today that we both have come down with a very bad cold.
I started to come down with this on Wednesday night and it was really bad on Thursday.
It started with sneezing and continued with a consistent runny nose.
I have also experienced chills and aches and pains in the process.
The first day was the worst, but have been getting a little better each day
since.
Please pray for quick and complete healing for both of us.
Pray also that another friend who I was with on Wednesday does not come down
with this. She and her family left Thursday on a mission trip to Malawi.
You can pray for them too while they are ministering to the people in Malawi.

Thanks for your prayers,
Sue

Oh how awful I am reading about Shelly. I just bowed my head in prayer for her.

Since Dec 6th. That is a very long time.

I am back but sorry to hear about you. I asked for prayer myself but my prayer is only a drop in the bucket compared to others.

Good Saturday Morning,
December 29th/2012 soon to be 2013
I am back to the group from being away for like four months. I would like prayer also for my Ostoarthritis and Sciatic to beable to go at a slower pace and for me not to push more then I can handle. I have gained weight now lack of exercise .

My hip is developed also the right pain. So all that I did in those month was nice weather. I was doing as best I good but was slowed down and has been a year now as I had to move from stairs to now know stairs. Which is good.


I also will pray for others as I read in here they ask.

Thank you God bless.

Loving Father, we lift Amber up to you and ask for your divine touch upon her brain, upon her entire body, and ask for your healing power to be manifested within her. Rescue her from this condition, Lord, that she may fully recover and have a full and blessed life. We ask these things in Jesus' holy name and will be so careful to give you the glory for this work in Amber's life.

Amber is home from the hospital. Apparently she was having chest pains. They did more tests, though Will wasn't aware of the results yet. I'd appreciate your continued prayer; whenever Amber's name pops into your head, just pray for her. Thanks!

May I ask for prayer for my son's girlfriend, Amber? She is a former gymnast, and the reason it's former is because she has had so many concussions from falls that she has traumatic brain injury. She has struggled with headaches and transient amnesia all during the fall semester. Last week she was hospitalized because she lost consciousness, and it turned out she had a heart attack. She is in the hospital again today.

I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

As many of you know I have been very ill since December 6th.

emoticon everyone for your prayers. emoticon

I have gone to see my doctor and have taken antibiotics on December11th. I think I have an upper respitory infection. I will be calling my doctor again today to be seen again.

I feel very badly that I have not been here for you, although I know that my team members know how dedicated I am and also know that you understand. emoticon I love you all!

Although I have been very sick the holy Spirit resides inside of me and is taking good care of me! I have very much been enjoy this Christmas season regardless of being ill. He shines through me and holds me while lifting my spirit up. I am sp grateful of my relationship with jesus and all the things which He does for me!

Please continue to keep me in your prayers. It is hard for me to be away from this team, and not do my part as a team leader. Also, I need to get completely well so that I can continue to teach Sunday school for my dear students. My throat is still sore, and my voice.. well lets just say it is not back completely, and sometimes I can't talk!

I am praying for your healing, Shelly, for the Lord to restore your strength and to comfort you. So many are suffering with illness right now.

Paula, you are also in my prayers. I know the love of the Lord for you is mighty and that He hears our petitions on your behalf. The answers are on the way even before we utter our prayers. God is SO faithful.

Let us remember the Sandy Hook school and Newtown community as they move forward, asking God to give them divine strength and courage, comfort and hope. I am praying especially for the fire fighters, police, and EMTs who were the first responders, and for the pastors in that community, as well. I cannot even begin to grasp such anguish. Join your hearts with mine as we build a hedge of prayer around each of these people, families, and the community left behind.

I am sorry I have not been present for a while. There are all kinds of things my family constantly needs prayers for. Sometimes I say general prayers for them and rest in God for my prayer requests for my family. It is in trusting in god and His strength that I receive much peace although my family needs are great.

Several months ago I became a prayer partner at my church. 98% of my prayer requests come from the list of prayer requests that i receive on a daily basis.

Ok, Cindy you asked about my brother in law David. I have total peace in this matter because I know that God has already healed him. However, the healing has not yet manifested within him yet.

David was suppose to have the surgery. However, the day before his surgery my sister and brother in law kept telling the nurses that they were doing something wrong. The nurses were giving David something which caused some kind of change in his blood. Davis was being wheeled down the hall way on his way to the operation room when his doctor became to actually run after David yelling to the staff to stop! Apparently the doctor realized at the last minute that the nurses had done something horribly wrong! If David would had been operated on he would have probably died!!! Of course the hospital is covering their butts and told my sister and her husband that for some made up reason the nurses did no wrong. However we all know the truth- God saved Davis from dying. My sister and David have no intention for suing the hospital, even though they would perhaps win. They just want David to be rid of all of his heart problems, and I know God honors this.

As for now David will be having his heart shocked sometime in the future. He is receiving oxygen, and since he has sleep apathnia (that word is probably spelling wrong) he is wearing some form of mask thing.

Many prayers of peace is needed for them. Please pray that they are able to grow closer to God through all of this and that they give glory to God through all of this. Thank you.

emoticon emoticon Howdy from the DFW area of Texas!

I've been thinking a lot over the weekend on this new "last resort" medicine that my doctor's have started me on. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed and discouraged about it. I don't want to be in the ( "statistics" of gaining the average 45-80 lbs) in this my first year of being on it.

I feel that I'm caught in the middle. Either I can walk so much better, and gain weight or stop the medicine and be able to continue to lose weight, but have continuous kicking motions even when I am emoticon emoticon .

Please keep me in your prayers! emoticon

Shelly, how is your brother-in-law doing? I see by the previous post he has already had it. I will still pray for him.

I need prayers please. I have a UTI. With only one kidney infections are not good. I am on an antibiotic and BP meds again since my BP is up, I am sure due to the infection. Thank you.

A woman named Cathy came home the hospital Halloween night. She had a really bad day yesterday. She went to her husband 's cardiologist today and he helped her with the 8 new drugs she is on. He wants to see if he can work with her heart valve problems with meds before resorting to surgery. Her liver problems have been placed on the back burner and they are concentrating on her heart right now.

Love Another- No Matter What They Look Like Or Act Like

I teach a group of mentally challenge adults Sunday school. I am more than just a Sunday school teacher though. This week I received a new student who is visually as well as hearing impaired. She has been set in a new environment. Everything & everybody that she knew before is now gone. She has no way to communicate because she does not know sign language , and has never been taught letters (so you can't even write out words into her palm) As of Sunday she had not slept for 2 days... she is very frightened. she is under care with a Christian woman who has worked through an organization to provide care for one of my students, this lady is now also caring for Moana. However, Moana requires several staff workers, what is called providers, these people need prayers to as they need the help of spiritual guidance to care for this special lady.

I have found intense enjoyment, shear joy in fact, being a part of these people's lives. It is an honor to serve as a friend & a Sunday school teacher for them. If you know anyone who is impaired in any way I encourage you NOT to look at their impairment and treat them accordingly. I mean, give them help, but don't look down on them, or treat them differently in a negative way. These people with mental & physical challenges have taught me things I would have never known if I have not been involved in their lives. We call ourselves "normal" but there is nothing normal about anyone. We all have hang ups, baggage, and things such as addictions, mild disorders which allow us to function for the most part a normal way, but for some reason we have chosen to classify these things as ordinary.

Next time you see someone who doesn't fit, think again about all the other people in your office, your family, and friends. These people who look like or act like they are...... whatever, inside in soooo many ways they are just like you!

Embrace them, love then, & care for them!!! I know you are all Christians here, but you would be surprised what these wonderful people and their families have experienced from the hands of Christians WITHIN THE CHURCH. The rejection, the sunning, and the cruel behavior is UNREAL! It goes on in more churches than you even want to know about and it must STOP!

ANYONE WHO IS READING THIS PLEASE PUT ME AND MY WHOLE FAMILY IN A PRAYER CHAIN, pLEASE EVEN TELL OTHERS WHOM YOU KNOW FROM OTHER CHURCHES TO ALSO OUT US ON A PRAYER CHAIN. Thank you so much!

My whole family is in need of prayers. My Dad Evans, his wife Joann, his ex wife Earlene, my mom Joan, my sisters & their families- JOyce, Laura, Rita, and my brother Danny.

Also a specific prayer request for Joyce:

I am requesting this prayer from the prayer partners: That God will give Joyce the ability to turn everything completely over to Him, & to seek an intimate relationship with Him. Please pray & ask God to strengthen her ability to cope with life no matter what her circumstances are through a deeper relationship & reliance with Him.

Many prayers have been said for my dear sister over the years dealing with her depression & different circumstances, and much help she has received through prayer from God. He will continue to help her through your prayers, thanks.

My sister Laura:

Laura has been bleeding for several months now. /so much that while using the biggest tampon she has to change it within 45 minutes after inserting it, and during this period of time her pants become spotted! She is currently not bleeding. She has gone to the doctor/s a few times. she needs to have a surgery which she will have. An explanation was given to her re. the cause. The surgery is very invasive. Her husband has extremely heart problems. He is only 46 yrs. old. He can not breath properly, his heart beat is extremely out of rythem. There is more to be said about my sister and my brother in law. No peace is within them, and they are being attacked by the devil. There are demons living in house! This is no joke, I would never type such things if I knew it was just here say. Please keep my family in your prayers.

I have peace knowing that God has a plan through ALL of this. It is hard to see and hear my loved ones suffer. I try my best to do all that I can for them, but just like so many other times it is completely out of my hands. I listen (I live far a way from all of my family members) and pray. I try to tell them about things in the bible like when Abraham sent his child from his servant away and the servant and the child thought they were dying, yet God had blessed them and when the maid cried out to him He told her about His blessing. But often it is best just to listen and be there for the person. It is a timing thing, and I try to rely on God to instruct me while I try my best to comfort people and my family.

I know that my team loves me and through your love you will keep me and my family in your prayers, and I thank you. it is a blessing which is above any type of payment for being your leader just knowing that there are hundreds of people from this team who pray for me (I am friends with tons of people from this team, and through prayer chains I am prayed for)

My heart goes out to you TLOVESC. All the love and compassion which you have seen and felt from the staff at the prison is nothing shirt than the love of God shining through them to you FROM GOD!!!

Please contact me through email and i will keep in contact with you if you are willing. We will pray together and God will work through me to bring you additional comfort and peace. I am here for you anyway you need a friend to help you through this. I thank you for your transparency, I know how hard it is to open your life up like that. The truth is many people face such things or worse yet do not share the details. God hears their requests, and our prayers from the people who write here regardless of the amount of detail which is shared. However, it helps other people to read about certain details, and it is hard to explain, but I know that it does. So, again i say thank you for sharing so much in your prayer request.

God works in ways which we can not understand, and perhaps more than anything else god has a divine perhaps and plan through this illness.

Dear God I ask you to heal David. Heal his body, soul, and spirit. Bring him to you and show him your mercy, grace, and favor dear Lord. Be your name be a shining star in glory through your work! Give David a place to rest his head at around his family. I ask you to magnify your Holy Spirit through his daughter as she talks with her Dad about you so that he can live eternally in heaven.

Now is the time TLOVESC to stand on your faith. Trust, believe, and receive that God has answered this prayer no matter what it LOOKS like, no matter what it FEELS like, and no matter what PEOPLE SAY! It is through God will that prayers are answered, but it ids through our faith which it is received sand seen here on earth! Write this prayer down and keep it in your heart my dear. Trust & believe , trust and believe, then and only then will you receive! Please write me. emoticon

I need to ask for prayer. Last Wednesday 10-24-12 a doctor called and told me my dad has untreatable, terminal lung cancer. I love my dad very very much he has always been the best dad that he knew how to be while living a life battling many drug and alcohol problems. Last May he was sentenced to prison (when I don't feel he should have been) and he certainly does not deserve to die there. At that time I just felt so scared that if he went to prison he would not come out and now that fear seems to be truth. I am putting all my faith and trust in God that he will bring my dad home to die with myself, my sister and his grandchildren. The prison has been so great to me I could not believe the amount of compassion from all the staff there and now they are working on getting him released early so he can come home. I know we don't get to chose the end of our time here on earth and that only God does. I am really scared for my dad I know he grew up in church but I don't know if he knows God anymore. I have a lot of things I need to ask for prayer for but I know there is power in prayer so please please please pray for my dad (his name is David) I know God can heal him but I don't know if that is what my dad needs. I pray he is given the chance to make it home to his family so I have the chance to talk with him about God and he can live out the final days of his life at home with his kids and grand kids. Thank you all so very much for your prayers.
