Call On the Lord!

Do you know that you can call on the Lord and He will answer? It’s true! The Bible tells us so in Jeremiah 33:2-3 which says “Thus says the Lord who made it, the Lord who formed it to establish it (the Lord is His name): ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ What an awesome promise! And the best part is – it’s not limited to a specific gender, status or race. No matter who you are or what you have done, you can call on the Lord. So as you share your prayer request with God, trust that He hears you and He will answer.

The prayers you see listed below are from women much like yourself. We encourage you to not only read their prayers, but take time to agree with them in prayer. You don’t have to know the women personally to show compassion for their needs. As you take time to water your sisters prayers, so shall your prayers also be watered.

Writer’s Block!

3/1/16 – Several years ago, God gave me an idea for a book that would encourage people to pursue their purpose. Initially, I was extremely excited because I knew this book connected to my personal calling. Since then, I have had personal challenges that have almost killed the inspiration for the book. I know that God ideas don’t come without obstacles, but completing this project has been extremely challenging. I want to finish well, but right now I lack the motivation to push forward. Please pray for my renewed strength and faith. Also, I would like for God to rekindle the fire and joy that sparked in my heart when He first shared this vision with me.

Overweight and Overwhelmed

2/22/16 – I have struggled with my weight for years. It seems as if I am on a rollercoaster with my weight: in one phase, I am losing pounds and at another stage I am gaining it back. I really desire to live a healthier lifestyle but at times I feel enslaved by my obesity. I am praying for the discipline needed to establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle. I am also praying for the courage to try again because right now I feel like such a failure for allowing myself to get back to this place. Lord, I really need your help.

Hope for a Child

2/15/16 – My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for several years now. I know that it is possible because we have one child already. However, we would really like to grow our family. The doctors say that there are no physical limitations, yet we have been unsuccessful in our attempts to get pregnant. The lack of success is weighing on our faith and lately we have been struggling to maintain hope, especially since we are getting older in age. Although I know that God can do anything, I am starting to wonder if He will do this one thing for us. I am praying for God to give us the strength to continue to stand in faith. We are praying that God will bless us with another child.

Freedom from Fear

2/9/16 – Lately, I’ve been overwhelmed with various emotions and anxieties when faced with a decision. It seems as if I am afraid to make a mistake, so instead of making a choice, I do nothing. The fear of failure has gripped my heart and now it seems I can’t move forward, even when it seems as if the choice is obvious. I am praying for freedom from the bondage of fear and anxieties. I am asking God to release peace in my life and to increase my trust in Him.

My Flesh is Weak

2/7/16 – I have struggled with lust for a few years now. Though I have had moments where I consistently triumphed over urges, lately it has been extremely difficult. So far my desire to please God has been keeping me from yielding to the sexual urges and temptations. Plus I have been faithful to my commitment and I don’t want to start all over. But then there is a part of me that wants to give in. Although I believe God can keep me, at times, I feel too weak to fight the urges. Please pray with me and for me that I am able to continual withstand the temptations. I have made steps to reach out to my friends for accountability and support; but I can use all the prayer I can get.

Praying for Healing, Acceptance, and Reconciliation

3/5/16 – My husband is a faithful man and he sincerely loves God. He has faithfully served in ministry for over 20 years, but lately, we have questioned if it is worth it. Recently, our faith has been challenged by biased treatment from the Christian leaders we serve under. It’s been hard dealing with this issue because of the hurt and rejection we feel. Though we do not know where to turn for support, we know that we are in need of emotional healing from the hurt, bitterness, and unforgiveness that is trying to live in our heart. Please pray for us. We recognize that has God never failed us, yet the hurt we are experiencing makes it difficult to continue serving in ministry.

Surgery is no fun!

2/13/16 – A few weeks ago, I learned that I will have to have a hip replacement surgery. I am extremely nervous about the procedure and would prefer not to go under the knife. However, the pain is unbearable when I walk, and sometimes, I am unable to get out of bed. I am afraid that something may go wrong during the procedure. My faith says that I can trust God to use this surgery to restore my mobility and to alleviate the pain I am currently feeling. But I can get over the negative thoughts that continue to come to mind. Please pray for a successful surgery, and speedy and full recovery, and my peace of mind.

Prayer for Adult Children

2/20/16 – Though my children were raised in a Christian home, they have since moved on into their adult life. I know they have a spiritual foundation in God, but I also I see a need for them to continue their spiritual growth. I am praying for my children to desire a deeper relationship with the Lord. Also, I am trusting that God will connect them to individuals that will help to strengthen their faith.

Unfocused at School

2/19/16 – My daughter’s attitude towards school has changed. Lately, she has been distracted in school. She is more focused on socializing with friends than learning. As a result, her grades are suffering. I am praying for God the wisdom to deal with this situation. I pray for my daughter to have a more positive attitude towards school. Also, I am asking God to help my daughter to be more respective and submissive to me and my husband.

Favor with my Boss

1/15/16 – I am praying for God’s favor. Last year, my pay status was changed from salary to hourly, which limited my ability to teach collegiate classes on the side. I approached my boss about the change, but he was not willing to advocate on my behalf. I have been praying for a breakthrough with my boss since last year. I need God to touch my boss’ heart so I can regain my salary status at work. Having a salaried pay status will create new income streams for my family and provide for our areas of need.

Prayer for a New Job!

2/27/16 – My husband was laid off a few months ago. Though he has been consistently looking for a job, nothing has opened up as of yet. My husband is a brilliant man, but the enemy is fighting his esteem and self-worth. I am praying that God will show me how to speak words of affirmation that will build his faith. I am also praying for God’s direction concerning the right career path for my husband, His favor with hiring reps, and for an open door by the end of March.

Financial Discipline

2/20/16 – I remember when I was debt free. Over time, I have accumulated debt – some legitimate and others were unnecessary. However, I am praying for God to give me the wisdom to manage my finances better. I am also praying for God to give me the ability to create new streams of income that would help to elevate the debt quickly.

Is There Someone for Me?

2/20/16 – I am almost 40 years old and I am still single with no children. I desire to be married, but I must admit, at times the wait is very difficult. I struggle with believing that there is someone out there for me or maybe my standards are too high. Yet, I believe God placed the desire to be married in my heart. I’m at the point where holding on is too hard to bear. However, giving up can’t be an option, especially since I have been waiting this long. I need God to strengthen my heart while I wait on Him. Loneliness is real, and at times, I want to give up. I am praying for renewed hope and trust in God’s Word.

Distance in our Marriage

2/11/16 – Please pray for my marriage. Lately, my husband and I have been having challenges connecting intimately. He has been distant and his behaviors have made me feel unwanted. I am trusting God to strengthen our marriage, and even our friendship. I am also praying for God to restore and increase intimacy in our marriage.

Salvation for my Mother

2/11/16 – I have been a Christian for some time, but my mother has yet to make a commitment to the Lord. She has had many struggles in life. Sometimes it is challenging for her to have believe that God cares for her. Please pray for my mother to have a real encounter with God. Also, pray that she makes a heartfelt commitment to God that is shown through both her words and her actions.

Should I Go or Should I Stay?

2/20/16 – Lately I have been questioning the right career path for my life. Although I love my job, I sense God is telling me to its time to move. I have grown rather comfortable in the security of my current job, so the idea of trying something new is a bit scary. I am struggling between trusting God, and staying where it seems safe. I need direction from God. I am praying that I will have the faith to obey God’s leading.
