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.
Why We Need To Pray- Draw Closer To God, Draw Closer To The Community, See Answered Prayers
Here are the prayer requests/updates for the month of December
(Update) Olivia In Bolivia (Fellow Blogger and Missionary Friend) – “This is going to be a long update; I apologize ahead of time, haha. It’s been a rough month and a half for Bolivia. Protests broke out after elections, and things have yet to get back to normal again. International coverage of what’s going on isn’t always very accurate, but I want to avoid publicly airing any of my opinions about what’s going on politically. Please pray with me that peace and justice will reign in Bolivia; that truth will triumph and darkness will be exposed. Things have been relatively peaceful in the part of Bolivia I am in, praise God. We’ve gone through some shortages due to blockades, but God has provided through it all. Elections will be held again in January; please pray that a godly leader will be elected, and that things would be calmer this time ‘round!
In other news, electricity is finally coming to the home of the missionaries I live with, and we will soon be finalizing my immigration paperwork, Lord willing! Pray for favor for us as we get that processed.
For me personally, please pray for endurance, creativity, and wisdom as I teach!” Stay Up To Date By Visiting Olivia’s Blog

Little Boy “Ben” – Request for healing, protection, guidance, role models, love – This little boy needs prayer. He has a lot of scars from his past that has damaged him greatly, causing problems for him developmentally and with others. He needs male role models, like father figures especially. These people need GREAT patience and endurance. Please pray not only for “Ben” but for those who work with him. Protection that “Ben” gets the help he needs so that he does not fall through the system. Please, considering fasting when you pray for him. Again, there is a lot working against this little boy.

Sue requests strength, wisdom, discernment, hope, perseverance to endure what God has called her for. That she is able to trust God in her marriage. For the Lord’s conviction to be over the household.
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 for his schooling and potentially be at a place he can work at after he graduates that is in his field. That this place of work would provide not only finances but also dental and medical. I ask for His hand on our household and finances and in my writing. Please lift up my home church as well. My pastor and the congregation. For protection, guidance, and renewal.
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, India, and Indonesia please remember them.
Pray for the Lord’s hand resting upon those being abused, trafficked, locked in addiction, those who feel unloved, and those suffering from illness.
Pray for the widows, the fatherless, the poor, the hungry, and pray for your own walk with Christ.
