Prayer Requests

Prayer is a powerful source in our lives.  God's Word tells us in James 5:16 "Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."  I have personally seen the effects of prayer in my life.  In times of distress I call out to my 'prayer wariors' to lift up my request to the throne of grace.  God has always proven Himself to be faithful.  

If you find yourself going through a struggle, please let us pray for you.  I promise you, God will answer your prayers!  I must admit I've not always liked the answer I've gotten from God, but I can honestly say that His way is always best (especially in retrospect.)  

Prayers posted here will be sincerely prayed over.  Rest assured, this is not a forum for gossip. No one will use your prayer request to talk about your situation (whatever it may be.)  This is a place where no judgement or condemnation will be found, only heartfelt love and grace.

If a usual day at your home is anything like a typical day at our homes it might begin a little something like this: 

The alarm buzzes and you hop out of bed(eyes still closed because you’re in denial that it is morning) only to trip over the dog, as he is painfully underfoot because you hit the snooze button one too many times, and he needs to go out for his morning constitutional. 

Your little angels that should be sleeping soundly are running through the house screaming like wild animals, and as they pass by not a single good morning is muttered, but a dart from a dart gun goes whizzing by your ear as you run down the stairs.

As you make your way to the kitchen to make breakfast, complaints are flinging left and right like windshield wipers on a rainy day as you get caught up to speed on all of the “who did what’s” while you were still sleeping. 

Breakfast is made, lunches are packed, folders are signed, and the kids are piled into the car to go to school…..and after all of that you then begin your day running from one task to another.

If this sounds all too familiar….do not fret, you are not alone.
