Prayer requests






Today is the day that we set aside about every other week, to share prayer requests and praises for answered prayers.

C. S. Lewis is one of my favorite authors, and he said, "Prayer does not change God. It changes me." The Lord is faithful and constant, and is loving and wants to hear from me. When I pray, even though my Father already knows what I need, prayer is an opportunity for me to humble myself and tell Him. I also exercise my faith, in turning over my problems to Him, instead of continuing to struggle with them on my own.
I feel a peace and a comfort from Him; it comes from knowing that He is always listening. He will answer my prayer in His timing, and in His way. Even with all of the people and events in this world, I never get put on hold; there is never a busy signal; He never lets me leave a voice message and then listens later. He is there with me as I kneel to pray.

It's an honor for us to be able to pray together. Please leave a comment with requests or praises so that we may share your concerns and your joys.

Let's pray.


I agree with C.S. Lewis. Prayer does not change God, it changes me. I know that the Lord is unchangeable and is constant and constantly wanting to hear and communicate with us. He is always there listening and loving. When I pray, even though I know Heavenly Father already knows what I need, I am grateful for the opportunity to humble myself and ask anyway. When I speak to my Heavenly Father I feel a peace and comfort knowing that He is listening and will answer my prayers in His own due time and way. I am humbled to know that with all of the people and events going on in the world, He knows me personally and takes the time to listen to me, everytime I pray. He does not put me on hold, He does not let the machine pick up and return my call later, He is always there, always listening and always communicating. I know that as I keep myself in the right frame of mind, I will hear and feel and know the answers to my prayers and what it is He would have me do to further is work here on earth. - See more at: http://mormonwoman.org/2010/08/15/a-mormon-womans-thoughts-on-prayer/#sthash.54kJeYKX.dpuf

I love this today and yes, He always hears, He wants us to ask. I do each day for several years I have been [raying for a family member in particular. I know He hears me and I know that He will act in however a way He chooses. But I DO KNOW He will.

Good day for this!! My mother-in-law was taken to the ER in an ambulance yesterday thinking she was having a heart attack. Thankfully, it was esophageal issues. My father-in-law has Alzheimer's and he was a mess over it. It's getting time to make some decisions but mother-in-law is not ready to accept the inevitable yet. I fear she is still in denial of how bad it is, and how bad it's going to get. My husband is their main caregiver, but we live 35 miles away from them. Please help us pray for our situation and the choices that must be made. God is in control, I know this! I just want His will and not ours, because I know His is better!!!

God brings us together before Him when we are able to share our requests. Holding all of these requests in prayer. Praying for my blogging friends and Praising Him for His greatness.
