[MUSIC PLAYING] Times are tough. Families are hurting. Marriages are hurting. Children are hurting. People are locked up.
Hello. My name is Rose.
My name is Vivian. How may I pray with you today, please?
I don't know how I'm going to pay my bills. Would you pray for a miracle for me and my finances?
OK. We pray, Father God, that your will be done in Rose's life today.
Father, in the name of Jesus, Lord, we come giving you thanks and giving you praises.
And I ask you, Lord, to bless them individually and meet each needs of each person.
We don't know how the Lord is going to answer. But we do know that the Lord does answer prayer.
Our Prayer, a service of Guideposts, is a community of faith, a true church without walls, uniting people from all over the world through prayer and devotion. OurPrayer.org brings those with needs together with those who will faithfully carry those needs to the Father in prayer through written personal prayer responses on the web, through online prayer spaces and chat rooms, and through the telephone and our toll-free Prayer Line.
Thank you, Mary, for calling. May we go to God in prayer? Father God, in the name of Jesus, this is the day the Lord has made, and we will rejoice and be glad in it. There are so many who have family members who are on drugs. And the children won't be obedient to the parents. And the parents, they are afraid of them. They don't know what to do or how to talk with them. And I just pray with them and give them scriptures through my prayer.
When you can pray for somebody that's in Canada, and right after that, you can pray for somebody that's in Texas, and after that, you get another call, all within an hour, that's the unity that God brings about, because sometimes it's a younger person, an older person, a white person, a black person. I'll be so glad when a whole lot of people can get on the online. [LAUGHS]
People who support Guideposts is supporting a good group that extends out into families like myself. It's not just sitting in a bank up in New York. It's being spent on things like this new site and new mediums and new ways to bring people to prayer.
Now something like this, what I do is-- I've read that. And I will always start out, "Our Heavenly Father, I lift up"-- that's kind of a signature of me. I'm only going to bring them to the Father, all right? And I'm going to lift them up.
I think it's all basically, I love the Lord, that we want to be drawn together, drawing closer to Him through prayer. There is a girl from Egypt that I've met, Australia, England, Ireland, India, several from Africa that I've met, just about all over. Each one you type in, you just kind of read what is on the screen. I mean, it just feels like you're led by the Holy Spirit to respond.
With over 50 years of experience praying by name and need, our prayer is poised to be the most technologically advanced and accessible prayer ministry in history.
We pray each prayer, one at a time. I had a pastor tell me, why don't you just put them all together and pray for them? Come on. We pray by need, per person.
I think many of them would probably just give up, wouldn't have any hope, because they say that no one else cares for them. And when we get-- we're on the Prayer Line, it is as if we are family to them.
We thank you so much, Lord. We love you. We adore you. And we praise your holy name. It's in the name of Jesus, I pray. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
Thank you for praying for me. Your prayers have changed my life.
