This post is updated, sometimes daily, please check in for updates, answered prayers, and for continued prayer over the requests. Thank you!
Let’s work together on prayer by praying for each other and lifting up our needs. Christ said where two or more are gathered in His name, and there are definitely more than two of us. Let us come together to Him even if we are miles apart. Let us lift up our brothers and sisters in Christ and anyone who can join the body of Christ.
Purpose- Draw Closer To God, Draw Closer To The Community, See Answered Prayers
I want us as a community to pray for a month. I want to work on giving time to Christ and increasing faith. Prayer can be one of the most powerful ways we go to Christ, we are to come to Him boldly, and believe.

Here are the prayer requests for the month of April.
Baby J– A girl I know from high school gave an early birth to a beautiful baby boy. He was born premature and has had quite a journey. But he is growing. The nurses are saying he thinks he is stronger than he is, getting himself the name, “Little Hercules.” Pray for this baby, his mom, and the rest of the family as he continues to astonish others with the miracle God is making. Update: He is off oxygen, and he weighs a little over 4 lbs now, yay! But he needs prayer to see if he will need surgery. Lift up baby J and his family. ❤
Sue Love & Her Husband – Request for prayer against deception and darkness as there is spiritual warfare going on. Continued prayer for Sue to feel assurance, guidance, and direction from the Lord. Prayer for her husband’s spirit to be pricked and refined by the Lord daily. For him to be truthful. To lay the past at the feet of Jesus, and to leave any sins there.
Anonymous– This person requests prayer for their family’s salvation, a friend in need of guidance and direction, as well as help to draw closer to God.
Tamara– I’m asking continued prayers for her son Elliott, and for Tamara to continue to advocate those with mental illness and those supporting loved ones with mental illness.
A friend’s brother– In addition to Tamara, I’m going to open this prayer request to the public. I know someone’s brother who has schizophrenia and he needs to be uplifted. I ask for prayers that he is surrounded by those who can support and help him. I ask prayers of strength for the family. I also ask this friend of mine be uplifted against anxiety. That this friend feels continued assurance from God, and His teachings.
God’s Warrior– Has requested continued prayer, “To be able to recognize and know God’s presence, so then I would be able to walk in His presence. Also, I just want prayer over my financial aid as I make my decisions for my transfer into a 4-year university or college.”
For this month, he’s requested, “Praying for understanding from God’s Word that I may apply it to my life.”
Red Letters- Hayley has requested continued prayer for her niece, Taylor.
“It’s the same as before, but now my niece has completely cut herself off from the whole family. We love her very much and just want to see her come back.”
Let’s lift up, Taylor and pray for the Lord to shine His light and His love all over her. May she be consumed in love, and joy overrides whatever darkness she is going through.
Mia– Mia has requested continued prayer for her mother in law’s husband. She has shared this update on what is going on. “The oncologist overseeing the treatments gives him 3-6 months left to live and says his cancer is stage 4, inoperable, and has spread to his liver and lungs, which is not the report (that it was stage 3 and should be operable after chemo shrinks it, and he could live another year or two) he got originally from another doctor. Pray they don’t give up hope, but instead fix their eyes on the God of our hope, and even pray for God to do a healing miracle, which would be an awesome testimony of God’s power.”
She has also requested, “Keep praying for my writing—it’s working!”
Faye– Has requested, “Simply that as I finish my freshmen year of college I do not experience burnout.” Please pray for Faye to experience the comfort and assurance of Christ throughout the reminding days.
Lea– Requested continued prayer for direction on which college she should go to. Let’s pray that she hears what God wants her to do no matter what everyone else may tell her.
Biblebloggergirl– She has shared an update on R.C. and continued prayer for him. “He has returned to work, but not because he is better but because he needs to; the cancer is still there and it’s still a bad situation, so continued prayers are very much appreciated.”
She has also requested prayer asking God that, “I would surrender every aspect of my life to the Lord, and not hold anything back, because I have held back unconsciously before.”
Her friend needs prayer, please lift up this girl! “My best friend’s dad just died of cancer. She is being very brave, but I can’t imagine how much she is hurting. Please pray for her.”
BelleUnruh– Her granddaughter needs prayer. Her name is Faith. Continued prayers for Belle and Belle’s mother as Belle takes care of her mom.
“My Granddaughter is still quite sick with OCD. Our family needs wisdom on how to help her and also that God will heal her, or if that is not his will, to help her cope better with her anxieties.”
Christi Lynn– She has requested, “Please pray for me and my struggle with depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.”
Leigh– She has a date now for when she hears if she gets disability or not and it is in June. Pray that the judge makes the right decision and that Leigh will be taken care of.
The Comeback Pastor– Pastor Winters has asked prayer for
- Wisdom and discernment to sense what is of God and what is a distraction
- Big faith to step out even though it may not make sense to us
- Us to be faithful with the new opportunity God gives us
Unspoken– Please give the words of guidance and protection to the Lord. He knows what they are for. ❤
My Request- Please pray for God’s hand in the lives of myself and my husband. That God prepares a place for my husband to have a co-op and potentially be a place he can work at after he graduates that is in his field.
Remember, to pray for the lost, for the body of Christ, leaders to be strengthened, and believers to draw closer to God. We have some fellow bloggers in ministries in Italy and India, please remember them.
