Prayer requests

Many of us who join here in blogland to study each day have had examples of answered prayer in our lives.

The Bible tells us that the prayer of one righteous person is powerful and effective.

It also tells us that something extraordinary happens when two or more agree together in prayer.

In Matthew 18:19, Jesus said, "If any two of you agree touching any matter on this earth, it shall be done."

Let's first ask forgiveness of our sins . .  .

                     If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
                     (Psalm 66:18)

   --  and then cast all doubt from our minds . . .

                     But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who
                     doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 
                     (James 1:6)

  --  and then faithfully wait upon Him . . .

                    For you have need of patience, that, after you have done the will of
                    God, you might receive the promise. (Hebrews 10:36)

Several of our long-time companions in study have voiced prayer requests lately. Marla has asked for prayer for her husband's health, and for blessings in finding the right doctor for him. Cathy has told us of her son's job search, and asked us to join her in prayer that he'll find just the right job.  Belinda has been dealing with some very stressful situations, and we need to bear her up in prayer, and ask for the blessings of strength and compassion on her.

Please leave a comment here with a request for prayer warriors to join you in agreeing together on a matter.

Also, leave us a comment if you have an answered prayer to report - that's so encouraging to us all!

I so much appreciate your prayers on my behalf! I have a praise that I want to share and a couple of requests.
My sister, Bev, has lost five grandbabies due to miscarriage. One miscarriage was twins. So sad. Just today, her son and daughter-in-law had an ultrasound on their fourth pregnancy and everything is wonderful! The baby is strong, heart beat is good, everything just as it should be. Please help us pray that this time they will be delivered of a healthy full term child.

Her other son and daughter-in-law are in the hospital right now, trying to keep their little bun in the oven. The baby is not due for 8 more weeks but is trying to come a bit early. Please pray for a safe and healthy delivery, no matter when it happens.

As far as the other stressful situations, things are about the same. Today was a trying day, but tomorrow will be better. :) God is good.

I want to thank everyone for their prayers on our son's behalf. Those prayers were answered and he has a job. Not only a job, but one suited just for him. Among other things he does, he is a talented carpenter. The job he was given is in a place that builds windows and doors. He is working on the team that does the custom designs and trims. The job will take him to the end of December. The theatre is hoping to bring him in early, as in March rather than May, as they are doing renovations and there will be work for him to do there to finish up after the renovations are done. God is so gracious, and so good!! Praise His Name!!
