Prayer Warriors

Calling all prayer warriors. I hope that everyone will be safe during the expected storms. Let's just take a moment to pray for those in the path of Hurricane Gustav as well as for anyone that we know who needs and/or desires prayer.

The Bible says: "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16b)

Let us pray for those that may be in the midst of a storm (either physically or emotionally). Please take a minute to pray for those that are in any type of distress or need.

Please pray for my friend Steve and his wife as she tends to the health of her mom. I also pray for my friend Tom who is regaining his health and strength after an illness. Luckily Tom has a strong wife. May God bless you all my friends.

I also solicit your prayers for me and my family because there are some tough decisions that will have to be made. I ask you to pray that the choices that we make will be pleasing in the eyes of God and bring Him glory.

My prayer is as follows:

"I pray God that you show mercy to those that are either physically or emotionally in danger or harms way. That you provide a hedge between them and that danger as well as provide whatever is needed for their healing and protection. I know that all things are possible with you Lord. I praise you Lord and am thanking you in advance. I ask this in the name of your son Jesus who said in John 15:7 :

"If you abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. Amen""

If there are any additional prayer requests for family or friends, please add them by way of comments. "You pray for me, I pray for you!" Actually I will pray for you whether you pray for me or not. Let the "Prayer Warriors" know your requests. You do not have to use first or last names. Initials will be fine.

Al, both (Tom & I) sincerely appreciate the Friendship that we've built with you and your lovely wife, Sharon. May God continue to bless the two of you, richly!! Thank you, personally, for "lifting-up" my Husband and I in prayers and during these difficult days! Gentle words in times of trouble finds peace to the soul... We appreciate you!! We remind ourselves "Not to Worry" because "Worry contributes to interest paid on a debt - We may not ever owe". God is in complete control and He gets all the Glory!! Amen....
