    May I ask for prayer for my ongoing health problems. I am 50 years old and recently had to go on disability due to severe arthritis, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, insulin dep diabetes and heart disease. I try to keep a positive attitude but sometimes I get so down even though I know God is always there for me. Thank you. Kathy -

    Please pray for my sister Sara. She is having a severe reaction to ambien. She is hearing voices and feeling very threatened feeling she is going to be killed. She has been doing this for 3 weeks now. Her Dr. isn't doing enough as far as I'm concerned. My sister has always been a Christian and has been there for so many people in her career and her private life and it is heartbreaking to see her this way. Thank you so much for your prayers. GOD BLESS YOU!

    Our family dog is usually very sweet. However, he does not like strangers and tends to nip and bark at them. Recently bit my 3 year old grand-daughter, requiring visit to the ER. She is going to be fine. Need guidance on what to do with the dog. The animal shelter will not take him since he bites, and the vet said to put him to sleep. I hate to end his life, but I hate even more that he has bitten Savanna and I know that we do not need to keep him.

    I am requesting prayer for my family, my son has just gone through a divorce and his exwife just keeps harassing him. He has found a new friend that he has been seeing for about 3 weeks and seems to have a good relationship with her, she is a divorcee that has experienced some of the same problems that he has, and they seem real happy. His ex-wife just keeps calling and harrassing them and also trying to turn his children against him with lies. The children are 19, 21, and 24 years old. He put up with her for 21 years that they were married, listening to her constantly complain and put him down to everyone that would listen. He needs some peace and quiet now that their marriage is over. They have been divorced since May 2011. I also have a grandson with a legal problem (probation) and he has just started a new job and is working out of state. Pray that he can get his probation reporting dates worked out and doesn`t interfere with his new job. He is another son`s son. Please pray for me and my family in these matters. I am a long time christian serving as a deacon in my home church. Thank you for your prayers, Yours in Christ, Glenn -

    My friend, Carley -, is dangerously close to adultery and she doesn't even see it. She plays an online game and constantly calls and texts one of the guy players. She tells me that she fantasizes about him, she stays up all night texting him and neglects her family to play this game. She says her husband knows of the close contact and doesn't seem to mind. She just keeps saying, 'it's just thoughts, I'd never do anything. I'm not a bad person' I'm worried and want someone to pray for her with me. She's not gone to church in a long time, and though she says she believes, I've never seen any evidence of it. Thank you.

    Please pray for my 78 year old mother. She just told me a spot on her lung has turned cancerous. She has had this spot for many years (I think because she was exposed to TB as a child). The doctors said the cancer must be recent and they don't think it's spread, because whenever she has other tests they do a chest x-ray because of the spot. She is going to have a bronchoscopy on Tuesday and I guess they will know more then. After a previous checkup she was told the spot had become inflamed, but I never expected this. Her other tests are good-bones, blood pressure, etc. I requested prayer for her last month because she wasn't feeling well, but she seemed better, so hearing this is a shock. I am actually more panicky about the type of cancer than the cancer itself. (She had melanoma three years ago and recovered completely). Please pray for her healing. Please also pray for our family, that we can find the strength to support her and each other. None of us are ready to lose her yet. (I suppose no one ever is prepared for that). Thank you and God Bless you all.
