  1. Maddie Lance says:

    I have been praying for my best friend (who is not yet a believer) for several years. Sometimes he’s receptive to hearing about faith-related things, and other times he can be very hostile to the gospel. A few days ago, he invited me to spend the week after Christmas (over New Years) with him and his family. Please pray that God will use this time for me to continue to share the Good News with all of them, especially because his salvation has been something I’ve been praying over for a long time. Whatever God has in store for the coming week, I pray He uses me to the full extent!

  2. Julie B says:

  5. Karen Pope says:

    I am the parent of a prodigal adult child. This prodigal has the seeds of truth planted in their heart. I have been praying for years for those seeds to take root and grow. I know God is at work and that His time is perfect, but this has been a very long and difficult road for our family. Please pray for those seeds of Truth to take hold and grow. Ruth Graham’s books have encouraged me so much while walking this very difficult road. Thank you and God bless!

  12. Patsy Green says:

    Prayer for my children, they have slipped away from God and not sure they even know they have. When I try to talk to them they shut me off. Two of daughters treat me as if I have a plague, they both live in different state. I feel in my heart they do this because they think I will disapprove of their lifestyles. I want to help them but I know they are in Gods strong hands. Please Lord place the right people in their life’s one’s they will listen to. I do feel abandoned by them but it’s not about me and my feelings it’s about them getting their life’s right with God.

    I have a very special prayer request for my husband Cecil. He was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer about 3 months ago and is taking chemo which is taking a huge tole on him. He isn’t sick and throwing up thanks be to God but has every other side effect he could have including mouth sores and ulcers in his throat and stomach, acid reflux, his vision is affected in a bad way plus he has COPD and he is having an extremely hard time breathing even on oxygen. He is 67 and has had 2 heart attacks and chronic back pain. It seems he is being crushed with pain now but he is so trusting of God to heal him and we stay in constant prayer. My health is bad and I can’t care for him so please remember us both. We will pray over these other request
