    Today I am asking you to please help me pray for my brother. My brother has struggled all his life with the tough love my father gives him. My brother has had a difficult road in life and battles with depression. My father has never supported him and forever has reminded him that he is a failure in his eyes yet claims to love him dearly. My brother Daniel is 53 years old and still suffers from my father mental abuse although once again my father claims he loves him. After spending 2 weeks with my dad my brother has secluded himself turned to prescriptive medication and will not return any phone calls. He is at risk of losing a great job if he doesn't pick himself up. Please help me pray for him that God restores his ability to believe in himself and recognize that he is not a failure to him. That he lets go of the depression and focuses on his blessings. I am afraid for my brother and want him to be well. My dad also needs a prayer on his behalf to stop mentally abusing my brother.

    My anxiety has become absolutely crippling and I am having a hard time functioning normally on the day to day. I am taking all the necessary steps to address the issues, but it's still very difficult. I need the Lord's help in returning to myself- the one HE made me to be. Please pray for my peace....

    I would like to pray for my friend Taffy.About a year and a half ago while working for the town a tree fell on her head. She is in chronic pain with 1 bulging disc and 1 herniated disc in her neck. She is awaiting MRI results and a consult with the surgeon. I pray that if they opt for surgery that God guides the surgeons hand and that she heals 100% and is pain free.

    Brothers and sisters please pray for me for our God to open a new door of employment. Tomorrow is my last day at work. I have bills and other responsibilities just like everyone. I need our lord to open a new door so I can still pay those bills and give my tithes. I have a few referrals. May God bless me with one of those jobs. In Jesus' Name.
