    My name is Wylene. I am so grateful that I found your site. I hope that you will help me pray for my sister Sandra. For years she has had many serious health problems which have led to massive depression. The doctors put her on anti depressants and all they have done is mess up her mind. I fear for her. Please help me to pray that our Lord please lift her out of the darkness, to heal her body and mind, to help her feel happiness and joy in all the wonderful gifts He has given us. She is in desperate need of hope. Thank you, and may the Lord bless you all.

    Dear Prayer partners We need to ask for Gods intervention in bringing a stop to prescription drug abuse in America! Virtually every family in our nation is being dragged down by this problem, and most of the time it has been brought on by our friendly family Doctors! Our medical system is quick to throw pills at patients rather than truly treating the root cause for our problems!They cover up pain and symptoms rather than finding the real problems! Specifically, My youngest son,Michael, age 36, has torn apart our family through the use of pain killers, and has ruined our marriage of over 40 years. My wife works all of the time, and gives all of her money to him, to feed his addiction. Mike does not work, and only the love of God and my tough love will give him a chance to turn his life around. Please pray for us...we need a miracle!

    My son is facing false charges from the justice system. Our money is gone, we have sold all that can sell in an effort to retain a lawyer. My son is innocent, and I am NOT saying that because he is my son, it is because he truly IS not guilty. Yet, the judges, DA, arresting officers treat him like trash. We are desperately needing help just to keep a roof over our heads. My son is looking at spending the rest of his natural life in jail because of these false charges. The lawyer that has already been paid $5000 to has done NOTHING, yet says he has earned that money and now threatens to leave unless we come up with more money for him to represent him. Please pray that God moves, bustes this mountain down. My son lost his job, because of these actions. I cannot go into many of the details for fear that anything the system will twist to mean something they want it to mean. Please, may God send the help we need, the money, but most of all may GOD's presence be felt by all in the court, the system, may they know that what they are doing to my son, they are also doing unto God's child. Thank you for allowing me to send in this prayer request. God bless you!!!

    My niece,Jodi,has a disease or illness that cannot be diagnosed. She has had gall bladder surgery, many, many tests to no avail. She is still a very sick young lady. My request is that her illness will be diagnosed so that she will recover and continue to live a long life (healthy). Thanks you.

    Please pray for the -Church of - and Pastor Chuck - and his family. The church is very small in the heart of Silicon Valley and the coffers are always a few hundred short of the skeletonized budget each week. As the elderly patrons go to be with our Lord, there are few families joining the church and the ones who do can't afford to tithe. The pastor, the prayer minister (Sunila) and myself are dealing with two homeless people who have harmed the church financially. Although the lesson about the limits to helping others is a hard one to take, especially for the pastor and I (I'm a part-time office worker there and a member) who give too generously at times, these two people (James L and Vanessa W) need to find someone else--a different church--to help them. We don't have the means to help them anymore except through prayer. These two people have my land-line number and leave very disturbing messages. James is rude and verbally abusive and likes to camp outside the church property. Vanessa is a drug addict (a walking paraplegic) who claims to know the Lord, but she just threw away a clear miracle from the Lord (we prayed for housing, she was set to get it and then got herself kicked out of the women's shelter and blaming me [for dropping her off near the driveway--I'm not supposed to know where the shelter is] instead of her drinking, smoking, and giving away her oxycotin to other people; a fact that was verified by one of her roommates). It's very hard for me to help now that she's used me to make connections (I drove her). She calls me and leaves messages asking me not to 'cut her off' but I've gone beyond my limits trying to help. Please pray for strength and the Lord's words when she calls the church on Thurs. (the day that I work). There are other concerns but those are the main ones right now. Thank you very much for praying. I know He listens. May God Bless you too, Barbara
