I’m not writing a check so I’m abbreviating 2020.
Welcome back to a new start of the year! Community Prayer started on my blog two full years ago and I thought it was time to update the image. Thank you everyone for joining me in lifting up the community and the world to our Lord, Jesus Christ.
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 January
Update– My friend’s husband was able to find a job. He’s hoping for something better, but this is helpful for now. Thank you for all your prayers.
Update Baby Finn | (Stay Up To Date– Finn’s Facebook Page) He is getting closer and closer to going home with his family. They need prayers for the person who will be helping them and essentially living with them to help take care of Finn.
Please continue to lift up this family. Pray against stress for the parents. Pray for protection and healing for this little one. He has issues with his lungs and has to go through a number of surgeries. Pray for strength for Finn.
Update- Olivia In Bolivia (Fellow Blogger and Missionary Friend) – Olivia experienced a unique Christmas in Bolivia. She also has been blessed by the arrival of a friend to join her. But there has been loss experienced as well. There are many who need peace and guidance. Lift up the Yoders as they continue to step through uncertain waters. That the army of God could be seen all around and be a comfort to them. May Olivia be strengthened by His hand. Lift up all the children and the children’s home. Stay Up To Date By Visiting Olivia’s Blog
Tammy- Request For Salvation Of Others– “Salvation for five of my friends. *two includes my neighbor & his daughter*.”
Michelle – Request for husband’s niece– “My husband’s niece Alyssa needs prayers. She’s 16 and is battling a rare cancer. Her body isn’t responding to treatments any more.”
Rosario– Loss of church member– Please lift up the family of a man who recently passed. He has 8 children. Pray for the Bride to step up for the family and provide. That everyone sees God’s hand at work and that peace can be upon the shoulders of all.
My Mother In Law- Request for healing and answers- Thank you for continued prayers!– She has neuropathy. She struggles a lot. Please seek the Lord for answers and healing.
A friend’s brother– Request for someone’s brother who has schizophrenia and he needs to be uplifted. The young man is making improvements and making choices that are helping him! Continue to lift up him and his family. It is still very hard on the family, and I’m sure him as well.
Loved By King of Kings– Request for strength – Ruth thanks everyone for continued prayers for her mother. “She has not fallen again, to my knowledge. She and my dad have moved in with my sister and her family, who could use prayer for the added stress of caregiving to their already busy lives.”
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.
Vanessa– Request For Healing– She shared with me her father received news of cancer. Please lift up this family and that they are surrounded in the peace and assurance of the Lord. That the family, and especially her father, feels the Lord every single day and in everything.
Vivian – Request for renewed sight & healing– Please pray that the Lord help Vivian. Ask for strength during this time both for Vivian and her daughter Julia. Ask that the Lord provide other means for Vivian to give her encouragement. “I would love prayer for my healing, especially my nervous system and cranial nerves from TBI.”
Sue Love & Her Husband – Request against spiritual warfare and protection–Please ask that He reveals what is in the dark to the light. 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.
