Prayer requests

Today is our day to share prayer requests with our sisters (and brothers) in Christ.

Do you ever wonder how to pray? Do you look at your life and feel at a loss for words? We can learn a lot by looking at the Bible and seeing how people have prayed.
We may feel like we have been backed into a corner. Our jobs, finances, marriages may be in trouble, and we feel like we have been pursued and our hearts are desperate.
David knew that feeling. This is how he prayed:
 "I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." (Psalm 121:1-2)
Desperation is a feeling that Jesus' disciples knew. He told them:
"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me." (John 14:1)
When we feel desperate, our flesh may find it hard to trust in God. We can pray to the Holy Spirit, and He will help us overcome our emotions.

We can put our trust in God, for He will not fail us.

I hope you will share any prayer request that you have on your heart, and let us join you in prayer about it. If you've had prayer answered and want to leave a praise, please do that as well.

One praise and three requests...

With my new little furniture painting enterprise, we've sold two pieces.(Praise!!)
We have several other pieces but no bites yet. I'd appreciate prayers that we will start selling more often.

My daughter's sweet grandmother-in-law passed away last Friday. Please keep their family lifted in prayer. The family name is King.

A very dear friend of mine just lost her Dad yesterday. Please remember that family. Friend's name is Debbie.

Thanks y'all!
