   I received the following request via my email this evening:

Re: GLEN VIE ADVENTIST GROUP- GC SESSION

Please pray for my music group which was chosen to present music at the forthcoming GC Session in Toronto. We accepted the offer by faith that our God is able to provide all the eventualities for this trip. Please pray for us that we can raise all the money needed for this trip to be successful. We are confident that man's extremities are God's possibilities. There is nothing to hard for the Lord.
jane zembe for and on behalf of Glen View Adventist Group.

  Dear Heavenly Father. we just thank You for being our Heavenly father. O God I pray that these young people will witness for You in a powerful way through their music, and Lord God if it be Your will that means may be found that will enable them to rightly represent You and Your people at GC in Toronto. This request I ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, Amen and Amen.!
  Keep "the" faith!

Dear Br. and Srs, I would like to request special prayer for an SDA sister I met on the internet today. Clara needs encouragement for herself, her young daughter and her unsaved husband.

I have invited her to join us here and I hope that we will hear from her soon.

Thank you and God Bless,

A dear friend of my family has had surgery for 2 anuerisms,and, they have since found a third.

She appears to be recovering well,but,maybe not fast enough to keep her ner-do-well son from obtaining control of her and her resources.

This individual left during her surgery to find her purse to obtain money from it.

He and his live-in female companion both have a history of drug related problems,and he has an alchol problem.

He has physically abused his mother in the past(with in the last 6 months) and we are afraid that he will do it again.

Please,ask our father in heaven to do what He deems best in this situation.

we heard from her doctor today.....he asked us to obtain a durable power of attorney.
Her son has been there a feew times and each and every time he has been there,he's been inebriated....the doctor doesn't want him to be making decisions for her....please ask God to guide us....and to do His will in this.

Thank you.

He is LORD!
May He come soon.

Father God, there are others seeking physical restoration, and I would ask that You would be with Sr. Moss's friend who is physically sick also at this time. That You woul take away the bleeding and vomiting and restore her to optimum health also. These requests I ask in the Name and Person of Jesus Christ, Your Son, and our Saviour and Redeemer.

Dear Brs & Srs,
I am again bringing Clara and her dear family to this family for prayer and encouragement. She is concerned for her children and the fact that her husband is turning from God. I pray also that she find her way to this forum, she has been unable to find this forum with the address I gave. Though it is correct. Clara will be a blessing to all, let us pray this day that the Holy Spirit will quide her here.

Thank you,

As we near the time for the AOL to go offline,please pray that TRO and MSDAOL will fill the need for all the body,and that the spirit of friendship and family will continue to govern all.

It just seems as tho the adversary is trying to throw a monkey wrench into the works. If he succeeds, he will keep everyone arguing and fighting and the work will not get done.

Remember the administrators of all the forums, that God will guide and direct them into all good work.

Let us work together and finish the job so we can go home.

Just today at church I was asked to preach in a youth mission. I have taken talks numerous times but never preached. Please pray that the name of Jesus Christ is glorified in all I say and think. I also have no idea what to preach about. That is another request I would ask you to please pray about.

  Brother Paul,
 Don't worry about what you'll preach. The Holy Spirit tells me what to preach about. And when we have a close walk with the Lord, He will guide us in all truth.
 Just remember 1 Timothy 4:16 "Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them; for in doing this, thou shalt save BOTH thyself AND THEM THAT HEAR THEE."

Please pray for my mother-in-law who is very gravely ill. The Bible tell us: "... the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 5:16). I believe in prayer. I believe with all my heart that God hears and answers the prayers of His earthly children according to His Will. Please pray that God's Will be done in this matter on earth as it is in Heaven.

Thank you all and may God continue to richly bless.

  Dear Father in Heaven,
 Again we come before Your presence in the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary. Father we come in the Person of Your Son Jesus Christ the Righteous, and our Advocate. Father God , we ask that You will hear our prayer this day, as we seek Your blessing on Brother Crawford's mother-in-law. Father, You know the nature of her illness, and we ask that Your will be done. Father, as our brother mentioned, "the prayers of a righteous man avails much", and Father we know that "our righteousness is as filthy rags", BUT we claim Jesus' righteousness as our own. Father God, I ask that You will restore this dear lady to health again, and that she will praise Your Name, that Jesus will be glorified, and each one who comes in contact with her will be edified. Thank You Father, for hearing our prayer, in the blessed and Most Wonderful Name of Jesus our Lord and Saviour, and The Great Physician. Amen and AMEN!

Dear members!
My church in Portugal, Canelas, is beggining a new project called Little Groups. During the week, we divide the church in small groups, set together in some members' houses. My group in in br. Cesar Carvalho's house, and we have three non adventists there. One, Manuel, asks us to pray for in wife, who still doesn't attend these meetings. Another one, Mr. Martins, asks us to pray for his son Jorge, who is a drug addicted.
God is working well for our group, so I'm sure that with your praires, He'll do it much more! Thank you!
Filipe Reis, Portugal.

  Dear Heavenly Father,
 As You look down from heaven upon Your people, I ask that You will direct Your Spirit to Felipe's church's project "Little Groups".
  O Father, as these dear people meet to study and pray, i ask that You will instill Your Spirit in their lives, that Jesus will be uplifted, that Your people will be unified, and that souls will be won to Your kingdom. Father God,please be with Manuel's wife that she can be directed to the feet of the Master, and learn of Him. And also we think and ask that Jorge be released from his drug addiciton. Father, in times past, You have delivered many from the pits of sin and the holds on our lives. As the Great Physician, I just ask that each one who is drawn to You will be healed not only of their physical infirmities, but also be healed "spiritually", and that we ALL can be unified in the faith. Father, we believe that we are , indeed, in the closing hours of this earth's history, and we ask that You will give Your people a DOUBLE portion of Your Holy Spirit, that will enable us to give the 3 angel's messages with greater power, and that Jesus will come soon.
 This I ask in the Name above all Names, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who right now is intercessing for us in the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary. AMEN AND AMEN!

  Keep "the" faith!

Thank you very much for your prayings.
At the moment in Portugal, it's 2 AM, but I connected only to tell you that our project "Little Groups", is doing very well as God planned them to be! For instance, today was our third meeting, and one of our visitors (non adventist) already made a prayer request and also prayed for all of us and his family! It's just great to see Him work through us in other people's life!
Thank you again, and please continue the prayings, 'cause God always hears us!

It is good to see that God is working in so many lives, guiding and directing the work and getting it finished.

I woulkd like to ask you to pray for MSDAOL, the server pulled the plug yesterday(the 10th) at 1:30 in the morning, supposedly because the banner ads were running on the bottom of the page instead of the top of the page.

Those of you that posted there will remember that most ofthe ads were for psychic groups.

Daryl has located another server, and there will be no ads on this one, however, this means it will now cost to keep it up and running.

Please pray that God will direct this and, according to His will, it will succeed.

Thanks.

Over the weekend of the fourth, I learned that my son-in-law was in England with his dad and the rest of the family, because of this, the American Red Cross has put him on a
list excluding him from giving blood.

They said it was because they ate meat from the economy while there, and it exposed them to the disease.

I didn't think much of it until I was reading in the health forum here, the thread about mad cow disease.
It appears that he may be in some danger of possiblt contracting the disease as it has an incubation period that could be as long as 15+ years.

Please pray for him, as the 15th anniversary of his stay there is coming up soon.
Thanks

We know that You are the Great Physician , and that You do not heal in degrees, but rather in Wholeness. Father, please bless Gerry's entire family membeers, that they can have reassurance and know that "all things work together for good to those who love You, and are called according to His purpose. This we ask in Jesus name and for His sake, AMEN AND AMEN!

Please pray for my two young friends, Rebekah and Joseph. They are at their father's for their two week visitation. The training they have received all of their life is being undone.  The standards that once were taught by their father are now being removed. It is quite a painful situation for the children as they know what is right, but are in an environment in which it is very hard to do what is right. Pray for their father also, and their mother who is having to trust in God for the salvation of her children.

Excuse me please, Richard, if I take a break first and ask you for clarification. I do so to pray with understanding so as not to pray amiss. It is hard for me to pray in faith for something when I am perhaps being prejudicedly informed.

Is the father the christian man having taught christian principles ? Is the mother so anti-christian principles that only she is the influence for the negatives in the development of the children ? Is the moral expectations of behaviour patterns of the father toward the children too high and causes tension in interacting with the children ? Do the children feel more the moral expectations of the father toward them then the warmth and exceptance of them being children at their maturity level ? Do they feel uptight and have to be on their best behavior around the dad but feel more relaxed to be themselve around mom ?

Is the mother trusting in God for the salvation of Rebekah and Joseph (such beautiful christian names, seems like some sort of bible-minded parent gave these names to them) ?

We have a prayer request, it seems we are always rquesting prayer, some are good signs, others are not.
Ray and Florence and their son Paul.
Flow is a faithful loyal SDA, her husband and son are not. Their first son Chris was murdered in their kitchen in front of their own eyes in 1991. (about 20 years of age) Ray has never got over it and has been bitter ever since. Paul is now 21 and does not go to church. Ray has never went to church. Now he is having worship with Flow of a morning, praise the Lord for the desire to come and worship. Lets pray for Ray and Paul.

Father in heaven we bring to you Ray and Paul, we want to thank you for bringing Ray to have famuly worship and now we bring to you both Ray and Paul, bring them back to you. Give Flow the right words to speak in these circumtances.
We ask this in the weonderful name of Jesus.
Amen

I would like to make a request for you all to add Carolyn, a friend of mine on your prayer list.

She once was a SDA member, left the church about 12 years ago. We have been friends for 25 years. Her name is still on the books, but has not gone to our church for years.  

She is going through some very difficult times right now and changes in her life that could effect her eternal salvation, not just problems in this life.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I know I am not giving you much details, but to suffice, her current lifestyle could spiral her even further away from God.

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.
You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart,"

Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus Christ !
Our God almighty is powerful above all situations. I trust Him to do what He has purposed to do.

I personally ask please to keep us all in fullness of love and wisdom when writing what you want the readers to read. May your spirit of healing be everywhere to those who are wounded. May your love in admonishment be shown to those who need it. May your wisdom be given to the one who is leading in counseling. May your Spirit brood over the minds who need to answer with a word of knowledge.

I praise you for the team of moderators. May you please teach us how to organize our time to be of the most efficient for the benefits of others. Let patience have it's perfect work that we may be lacking in nothing. And please my dear Lord who I love, please send us more moderators that fit to us as your servants who are willing to be faithful in watching and guiding.

Hello again! Thank you for the kind words you've all been dedicating me in this forum.
At this moment it's 00.45 am, monday, 9th October. Few hours ago I arrived home from Pedroso. This name doesn't mean much to you, but I'm sure it will when you finish reading my post.
As some of might might have read before, my church here in Portugal, Canelas, grew bigger and bigger, so there was the need of establish a new one to face the growing members number (praise the Lord for this!). So the place choosed was... Pedroso, a little village, about 6 Km from Canelas. The church will officialy be open next January, but the members, like me, have started their meetings there. We're doing fine, but there are some things to get better.
So, I'm asking you all, to remember the new Pedroso church in your conversations with God. Please ask him to guide us, and to teach us how to build a strong church, that can drag people to Jesus. Pastor Antonio Mauricio and Brother Fernando Ferreira are leading thsi project. Please, also ask Gos to send the Holy Spirit to their minds.
Thank you all. I'll be most glad to anounce to my brothers, that through the world, there are people praying for the success of God's work in Pedroso. Feel free to use my e-mail, fire12@net.sapo.pt to give us your supporting prays and encouraging words. Thanks again. I'm most certain, your prays will reach heaven!
From Portugal, Filipe Reis.

Dear Brother Filipe:

You will be in all our prayers for yourself and your new church.  I will also send a email to you as well.

It is so wonderful to see God working all over the world.  To see people hearing the truth of our Lord and Saviour and being conformed to the Holy Spirit.

I pray for your pastors of the new church and your new group.  It is told in the SOP, that when a church gets to big, it should split and find a new place.  You are doing exactly what the Lord wants you to do.

Dear Lord:

I pray for this church and the people who love you so much.  They are taking new bold steps in your behalf. Telling the people of your wisdom and your love. Father, give them comfort and courage as they go forward in your name. Amen

Your Sister in Christ

Brothers and Sisters,
Would you unite together and pray for my husband. He accepted Jesus Christ three years ago, and at that time quit smoking. He took it up again after 17 months. Could you please pray for the Lord to take the desire for nicotine away from him completely? He is so discouraged because of this addiction. His health is poor and I fear for cancer. I know he doesn't want to continue, but he doesn't seem to know how to grasp the power that Christ has offered him in walking away from this addiction. His past has made it very difficult for him to trust, so trusting in God does not come easily for him. Please pray that he will learn how to fully trust in God to do all things, and to take away this debilitating addiction. Thank you.

God bless,
Wendy

WendyF,
It hurts me as much as it does you to see one who has started a new way of life going back to the old habits. I am sorry for this happening to your guy with this smoking problem. Thank you though for sharing this with us so we can support you and him in prayer as the Grace of God reaches down again to give him the needed understanding and help in his need to connect to the source of freedom again.

Something happened just prior to his reaching to his first cig after 17 months of abstinance. It is necessary for you to help him put into words just what that stress moment was. What was the cause? He was unconsciously led to rememberances of automaticly reaching for a cig in such a situation and it forced him to start again. Ask him to mentally go over that moment of tempation and speak outloud what stimulant of memory, or place of visiting, or smell, or emotional conflict with others, and which wrong thinking pattern triggered off the desire to reach for a cig to calm him. The habit of using cigs for emotional support was broken by him 17 months after giving his attention to who Jesus is and what He can do for him. It can happen again. Give him this for comfort.

Something happened that your guy's eyes turned away from Jesus and his imagination got filled up with either fear, worry, stress, or something that was part of his pattern of thinking in the 'before knowing Christ' life style. Just get him to try to do the following  :

1. Recognize and verbly say what triggered off the emotional drive for a cig.
2. Avoid coming into contact with the source of tempation so that good habits of non-smoking can grow within one
3. Often the stimulant which triggers off the urge for a cig can't be avoided. So one must work on the thought world of the individual.
4. Make a verbal renewal of the same decision to give up smoking in the power of Jesus which took place 17 months ago.
5. Read everything possible that gives one the mind of who God is in Jesus. The mind is then so cleansed by the word of God that the strength to overcome is greater.
6. Tell him it is nothing to be ashamed of in a way of total resignation of being rejected by God or the other christians because he has started again. Tell him that there is someone who will put his arm around him and pray for him to break the habit again. That person is Jesus. He is interceeding for him already in heaven. But it would be nice if you could get a man who loves your husband to come and prayer acusticly with him for helping his mind to take in the reality of what is going on in the heavenlies pertaining to the spiritual battle for releasing children of God from evil powers. Then a loving hug afterwards between the two guys builds up the healthy sense of being loved and accepted that even guys need.
7. The thought that he is lighting up a cig for offering it to Jesus to smoke (get him to strongly visualize this) will be also a deterent from doing so if the guy of yours has enough mental awareness of how beautiful clean and loving Jesus is to him. The 'ye are the temple of God' truth supports this. If someone hasn't counselled him about how to pray to be filled with the Spirit of God then do get someone on to this.

Recognize what triggers off the urge, make preparations beforehand to avoid the situation, fority the mind with Jesus related thoughts, use another spiritual substitute to combat stress,
renew commitment to God, get a prayer partner. Hebrews 10:26 is a tough truth with consequences if he is delibertly throwing to the wind his new walk in Christ with God. But if he is repentant then there is evidence he is still being sensitive to the convicting voice of the Holy Spirit. Even if he is smoking on the sly at present, please get him to fellowship with church service, praying, bible reading, talking about what he has read, praying with you, listening to healthy sound christian music and singing himself. Reaching out to others in some mission work is very theraputic if you can mangage that for him. But please get him to realize that 'as he is' when he is to coming to Jesus and the fellowship of believers, and with relaxing in trust to the love of Jesus he will experience the grace of God to overcome and the change will take place.

I will pray for you and your husband to have victory in this.

...with love from me to you..
the Joan
P.s.
Oh, yes I just had an after thought...he will have to go through, most likely, a three day of discomfort when he decides to stop again. If he gets irritated do remember to hold your tongue and let him let off steam no matter how he gets angry at something or says accusing things. To help this detoxification go better see to it that he drinks 12 glasses of water during the day and five pieces of fruit at least. And give him a hug from me if he really truely stops drinking his coffee. It also is a cig stimulate suggestive element.

Prayer :

Colossians 1:11 "May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light."

In the authority of the name of Jesus your Son I pray in faith to you, God our father. Please work in the life and mind of WendyF's husband that he will be freed from this smoking habit.
Inspire him to see the cause and give him your grace to overcome in the power of your Spirit. Impress him please to stick to getting to know Jesus so his mind will be filled with better thoughts to use as preventive measures. So let it be Lord. Amen.

YES! Sister Wendy, we will be Intercesors on behalf of your husband.

  Dear Father in Heaven,
 Jesus, Your Son has admonished us to come boldly to the throne of grace, and Father I am doing that, not because of my own righteousness, but rather thru the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
Father, may we rely upon Your promises, and may Your will be done. Father, Wendy's husband, one of Your children, is experiencing difficulty with the smoking habit, and we know that satan will try whatever means it takes to yield to him.
In the name of Jesus, who made a way of escape for each one, I rebuke satan, and ask that You Father will give the husband a desire NOT to yield to this tempatation. Father, in many cases, You have removed the desire instantly, and I ask that You will work in Wendy's husband behalf NOW! And because of this trial, may he and Wendy grow stronger in Your Trust.
This I ask in the Blessed and Most Wonderful Name of JESUS!
 AMEN and Amen!

Amen!

Heavenly Father, we join our hearts with our Sister Wendy's and ask you to come close to her husband. Reveal your love and your desire to strengthen him in his battle to do good. He is tempted to discouragement because of his failure, but let him know of your love for him just as he is. Help him to feed upon Jesus that he might know you better, that he might receive grace to overcome.

We also pray for our sister and ask you to give her an extra measure of grace to minister to her husband. We ask that you give her wisdom to know just what to do and when to do it. You have given us much wisdom in the area of health. I pray you will lead our sister to just what will be of help in the present situation. We thank you for Jesus who is the solution to all of our problems and our brother's. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Back in Sept. we posted a gift box of video Bible studies and books to a non-member group in the Philippines.  The box is not arriving, and we are all anxious.  The deaf there so badly want them.  My prayer is that they will safely arrive before Christmas, and that they will love and appreciate the videos in Sign Language done by Pastor Jeff Jordan of Acworth, GA

Oh, John...that does sound bad as if the postal service is doing some misdeeds of it's own. Even if someone else took the package hoping it to be filled with goodies they are most certainly now disappointed with the content and would be glad to get the videos out from their possession. So I will pray for such a person to get up the notion to give the package to the postal service to forward to the right address.

But if perhaps the address is somehow or other not known and the package is sitting in a room somewhere for investigating I will pray that the right answers come. Afterall you did write your sending address up in the left corner for them to send it back if it is undeliverable.

But three months of waiting...wow ! Could it be that this non-adventist group wishes another package free of charge and thus uses a fantasy story to reach this goal ? Just speculating...what with knowing how clever some can be.

Father, we also know that ALL things work together for good to those who love you, AND are called according to Your purpose. Father, may Your will be done, and may Your people be able to see the benefits of Your love to them. Father, someday soon, Jesus will come, and remove the afflictions caused by the evil one. Right NOW, Father , we need Your assurance and reassurance. Please help our unbelief that we can grow in Your trust and patience.

 Father I also ask that YOU will continue to address all the prayer requests in The Remnant Online. May each one know that You are still in control, and that Your love for each of us is unmeasurable. In Jesus name and for His sake, I ask, AMEN and Amen!

I want to ask for prayers for the headmaster at The Norwegian Bibleinstitute where I am working (the former president of the norwegian SDA-conf.). This good, christian man is having a tough time right now. Among other things one of his daughters (ca. 20 y.) has got Crohn's disease and has gone through many operations for the last few months. The last one was yesterday. It is very difficult to treat this disease. But Jesus is the great physician. For him, everything is possible, also to cure incurable diseases. Her father tells me that it hurts him so much to look at his daughter without any possibility to help her. Let us pray for this family.

"On a side note, i really need your prayers at the moment, i am slowly but surely slipping away from Christ. And i really dont like it and dont knwo what to do.
Please pray..."
Paul in Australia

Psalm 25:20-21
"Oh, keep my soul, and deliver me; let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for You.!"

Almighty Father in heaven, in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus the Christ I wish to pray for my brother Paul.

You have him in the center of your eye. All his daily tasks, thoughts and actions are known to you. Every word and every thought, you knowest them all together what goes on in him.

There is some darkness or hard hinderness in his soul at this time. The light of your Spirit is not giving him the joy of your Salvation. You do not want to give him up to the evil one.

Your forgiveness of sins is waiting for him. Your Spirit wants to be in him in fullness by his confessing and claiming the blood of Jesus for cleansing. You want to flood him with the knowledge of your words. He is seeing that his drifting away from you is causing emotional and mental confusion.

I pray that in the Name of Jesus the dark powers will be lifted from him. That he will have the light of understanding what it means to be one with you in relationship.

I pray for you to give Paul the spirit of praise to release the substance of faith that is there small in him.

How precious are your thoughts to Paul, O God ! Great is the vast sum of them. Hold back the wicked powers from him of doubt and despair. Let him come into your fellowship of Love.

For Christ's sake,
amen.

Spend time in the Word getting to know Him and by beholing His grace, you shall be drawn ever closer to Him. His promise: "If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto myself."  He is drawing you. Don't resist that great love.

Heavenly Father, hear our prayer for your child, Brother Paul. Speak to Him in a way that will help him to see your great love for him. Help him to spend time in the gospels or the Desire of Ages that he might feed upon Jesus, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Holy Creator God, our Father in heaven, we look to you for life needs and solutions.
I pray that the sincere among us will not be found with having any trust in their own collected righteousness from having kept the law but only that righteousness which is through the faith in the Lord Jesus our Christ.

I pray for us here who are weakened because of to many thoughts on the past happenings. May these ones be prompted to put it all behind them and reach forward to those positive promises of events before us. May the spirit of faith in you, Jesus, cleanse us all from dark thoughts and fill us with the knowledge of truth to fortify us for the glories coming. May those amongst us who were once part of our fellowship worldwide and now have departed and gone the way of Cain, not kill anymore of the brethern with lying spiritual attacks. We pray for these enemies of the cross that the way of repentance and turning back be offered them.

We rejoice at the prospect of our vile degenerate bodies being changed into like your glorious body, precious Lord Jesus. Please, according the workings of your Holy Spirit within us, subdue our nature to sin and lead us in a life of holy moderation. We have hearts full of thankfulness for the unmerited grace you offer in dealing with us. Thank you for your mercy in being kind to us despite our selfishness and self-centeredness. We have so much on material needs met and are so very thankful to you. Help us to keep on sharing out of our abundance to those in need.

We praise your name that you will be coming soon.

Our Father who is in heaven, through your Son we kneel our hearts to you. Because
Of your grace offered us we have this access to you by the blood of Jesus the Christ who has cleansed us from the sin we confessed. We are truly thankful in our deepest being for the release from oppression we were in because of sin.

We hate the distressing emotion of fear which is aroused by a sense of impending danger or possible pain. It is so awful to be tormented with anxieties causing us to be in afraid. Please use your scriptures to burn into our minds the right image of you, so our personal fear will be turned into a trusting reverencial fear of you for the sake of awe in belief that You can do all things possible. May we walk in this holy fear of you knowing that your love for us is unbiased or partial. You judge us according to our work and we need to walk in works of good deeds motivated by love to You. Please help us stay in such a balance.

Our faith and hope is in you Jesus, for we are in the life of purification in being true to obeying the truth through the Spirit of loving one another. Help our hearts to remain pure in this love we have for one another that we will seek the good of each other with being sensitive to each the other's need.

I pray for those among us who have not yet received the incorruptible holy seed of being born again that they will be given the spark of life contact with you Jesus.  I pray for the words printed here in this forum to be instrumental for the Word of God to be planted in good ground of listeners that a hundredfold of fruit will come forth.

Says King David: "I cried unto Him with my mouth, and He was extolled with my tongue. If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Father in heaven, in the name of Yesuha our Lord, help us to learn to pray rightly. Thank you for the raster prayer given the Apostles as they asked to learn how to pray during their disciple days. Lead us please, each and every one to form prayers from the heart when we cry up unto you in need for ourselves and for others.

We want you to touch us in the secret places of our hearts which are kept selfishly for ourselves and is not totally committed to you. Investigate us as properly as You would so we will be contrite for anything that is unclean in your sight. We have an awful lot of hidden desires and longings we wish to get fixed or put into order. Please work your miracle ways in those areas where each of us are thinking on for getting us in better relationship to You and our enviroment.

We have persons in our area of life we love who are chronically ill. As a matter of fact we know now of a few who are so severely in death's cold clutches that it appears nowhere amongst men could they come loose.

The plans of yours, our Holy God, are always best. I believe in the freedom of power within your Authority to go beyond the earth's natural laws to raise up a terminal sick person to health. May Your will be done in the lives of those we are thinking of at this time, to raise them up from their sickness for the sake of being a true witness for Christ in right witness to truth.If they would be destroying your witness of truth in away to hurt your body of believers let these ones then be silenced. If you see a purpose to lay them to sleep and take their spirit unto yourself than you be praised by it.  If such persons are praying to you now, I support them in their prayer for forgiveness and cleansing and making matters right with you.

May the work of the Holy Spirit to convict us of sin and teach us the way of righteousness be in our life as the main influence this day,
For Christ's sake I pray,
amen.

Hebrews 4:16  "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

Our Father in heaven, holy and pure are you in whom your are. I believe in my heart that there is no shadow of turning in you. I believe you are now to this date as you were at the beginning as you created the world. For the mysteries we can not fathom our heart is often perplexed. Still you have taught us as written in this bible verse to be bold in approaching your throne of reign. We know that in doing so we are relying totally on Christ to mediate for us. Thank you Jesus that you are stretching your hand toward us and telling us to come. Thank you for the kindness of your favor toward us.

I am asking for your mercy please now in the lives of the readers here who are going through hard times. Some are here in need for a job. Please assist them to look in the right place and move on the right people to help them where is needed. I pray for the distressed ones in tough personal human relationships. May the fruit of your Spirit in their heart sustain them to act or react accordingly in their situation. And I pray for those believers among us who are not protecting their mind with the shield of faith. Please work your work in them to see how needed personal study of your scriptures and truth revelations are part of the armor they must have before they can be fortified for the daily spiritual battle they are called to.

I pray for my sisters and brothers of the faith here to be given a spirit of freedom of speech. That they will be sustained by You in speaking boldly from the heart truth as you reveal it. Fortify them with holy courage. Free them from useless bashfulness and fear of what others will think of them.

I believe in your thone of grace and mercy. I trust your judgements and I believe in your active power influencing the course of history. I ask you please to influence the course of the lives of those here, who are walking by faith in You, for the sake of Your will being done in their lives as it is in Heaven.

In Jesus's name I pray,
Amen.

WendyF, I have had you in my mind and heart as I have prayed lots of these prayers here printed as well as thinking of the others too. It is hard for me to pray a general prayer of non-specifics for one who needs specific answers.

It is a very sensitive matter when publicly sharing hurts or sins in an online forum. I feel like tearing my hair out for helplessness that I am not available for the needed 3D counseling that helps in crisis like what marriage/relatives/churchmembers/financial problems can cause in giving out pain and insecurity.

I know your Father God is loving you and watching over you and allowing chastizement or trial in your life to form your faith to let Jesus's character of reacting grow in you.I know that you know that having contempt for a partner, having contempt for a relative, having contempt for a church member is destructive. One blows off into rage outbursts, one is provoked to lash out with tongue of evil sentences, one does vengeful actions. This is evil in the presence of the Holy Spirit. We should not grieve the Sprit of God. It could get to be a habit and we start to resist the Holy Spirit's voice of influence in our life.

I will pray today privately for you. I promise and I will keep my promise.

I'm attaching a link to a story in Kauai.  The school where we taught, Kahili, is on the same grounds where there is a cabin-rental park.  The park has been leased by the church from an estate, but the estate has stated that all cabins not occupied by teachers must be vacated and the industry closed down by April 15.  This is a large financial blow to the school--please pray for Kahili.  There is some concern that the school could be shut down as well, since all the land is leased.  Thank-you for praying for the conference and the school.

Michelle,

You have a personal affinity for the place what with having worked there. The adventist school took out an 60 year lease for the grounds to run the school. Now we see that they have gone into commercial paths to boast up substidies and got the cabin rental going. The Trust tolerated this apparently too long and for some reason blew the whistle according to their legal advantage as stated here in quote "...while its 60-year lease with the trust signed also in 1985 does not specifically allow commercial operations."

What motivated the ball to rolling is not so much our concern here. What matters is taht the school is not being threatened to close as of yet.

What, Michelle do you want to have done ?
What do you think God wants to have done ?

Heavenly Father, we thank you that we can bring these prayer requests before you. Satan is at work to destroy all that love you and desire to keep your commandments. Sister Wendy has asked for prayer and we continue to pray for her family situation. We ask that you would send angels and your Holy Spirit to work so that this family may be an example of your ways. We thank you for all of the counsel you have given and pray that the light will prove a blessing for not only this family but all who desire to serve you.

We also pray for Sister Michelle's request regarding the school situation. You have asked your people to build schools and have given great light in regards to how to operate these schools. We pray that you would look down upon the situation and use it to your honor and glory. If the leases are all in order and the school is being run according to your will,  then we ask that you work in a special way to end the difficulty. If there are things that need to be changed at the school, we pray that you will use this time to draw close to your children and speak to their hearts that they may receive your blessing and the children in the school a Christian education. We pray these things in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Joan, the article in the newspaper is not completely accurate (or doesn't give the whole picture).  The lease is for the school AND the camp.  The camp has been in place for a very long time, long before the school was there.  The lease just turned over the operations of the camp to the church, and allowed them to build the school on the grounds.  What the biggest problem is, is that the one trustee "in charge" of Kahili (there are a lot of trustees in this estate, and they finally divided it up among them) doesn't like Adventists and is trying to evict them from the whole operation to have the land to himself.  The church has been trying to buy the land for I don't know how long, and the trustee just doesn't want to sell to the church.

Joan, what I'm praying for is the school.  Its student body is over 75% non-SDA.  It is a great mission outreach on the island.  If it closes, it closes, and there's not much that can be done, but it cuts off the ability to reach the island for our church.  I obviously don't know what God's will is--but I do hope that if the school is forced to close that the island can be reached in some other way.  Everyone on the island (well, the majority I ever met) knows of the school and has a favorable impression of it for the most part.  

Yes, right now the order is involving the camp.  However, if the funding the camp provides is gone, the school will not be able to function financially.  The costs over there are so great that the money from the camp is what has made the school fees affordable.  So, no, officially the school is not being "shut down" but in essence that's what would happen without some kind of alternate funding.

Thanks. I understand and have better insight how this court decision could effect the outcome of our witness on the island.

For anyone interested, here's an article from today's paper on the whole Kahili issue.  This one seems to have more of a grasp on the issues and is well-balanced and fair in the reporting.  The most telling to me is the planned use (or "reported" planned use). It makes me sick to think of.

Prayer for the world Church :

Psalms 11:4 The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men. The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.—

Our all powerful Father in heaven, I approach Your holy throne now to pray for our Church world-wide. It urgently needs Your intervention because there is so much evidence that step by step compromises are being made in various areas of our denomination. I ask especially for Your intervention in the affairs of the north American Division which is leading the way. The Omega crisis is creeping forward. You and only You can salvage Your righteous ones that they not be drowned in the waves it is causing.

Father, please halt the advancement of the modern liberalists tearing down what You built up of our historic beliefs and standards. So many of us are fearing the future of our church's present trends. Fortify those with the knowledge of truth to speak out and be firm as a banner carrier for Your will. Remove from high office those who prefer pushing modernistic positions in our church politics.

Father in heaven, I ask you to do what ever is needed to stop the liberal professors at Andrews Uni making our ministerial students develop such a wimpy spiritual concept from their new paridigms. Please work Your spiritual influence in the lives of those of good soul soil planning to be ministers but now are being exposed to the disarming of their individual convictions, and being accosted to put aside their basic individualism to be tolerant of everything that goes. Strengthen them please to resist the current of herd mentality. Strengthen them to resist the influence of religion professors molded by academical letters from Catholic universities.

May You in Your love for right worship please step in with healing help into the lives of those being deceived by the inroads of celebrations churches which are robbing us of Your future sda leaders My heart pleads with You to put an immune barrier around the minds and souls of sincere Adventists who get into these meetings not to take on the teaching that being saved already needs to be celebrated and that there is no need any longer to keep Your law. God forbid that these deceptive inroads keep our church members in its grip but with your power in charge, release the veil of deception from the minds of your true ones.

For your kingdom sake I pray in Jesus Name,
amen

There are times when God is able to reach people who up til then were resistant. Germany was shocked by the mass killings at one of her secondary schools. Shall we pray for those who have been grieved.

Heavenly Father we thank you that we may come before your throne and ask you to intercede in the lives of the families afflicted by the school shootings in Germany. We know you are already working, but hear our humble prayer on behalf of those who are open to hearing of your love, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Here's further updates on the Kahili situation.  They're going to try to keep the K-12 open for at least a year, but if they aren't able to rent cabins before it goes to court in 2 years, they'll have to cut the academy portion of the school.  Michelle

Father God in heaven above, my prayer now is for us all here in this Forum. In the name of our Lord Jesus your only begotton Son we honor and glorify you. At this moment I ask you to please make this prayer that Jesus prayed in the upper room reality in our lives, that the essence of what was requested be fulfilled in our personal lives.

Glorify thy Son through us. May our words, deeds and example be enpowered by your Spirit to help those we come in contact with us reach the understanding of the way of forgiveness and eternal life. May you impress upon us each one here the work we are to do to glorify you. Allow us to show forth to others what you have done in redeeming us out of sin. Please keep us in contact to right teachings which are of thee and from thee. Protect us from straying to false beliefs. May the words of Jesus that we have studied be kept within us to grow to maturity and influence our daily walk in decisions.

Father, it is so hard being in this world. The temptations to be like the worldly ones are so strong at times. I pray that your Spirit will keep us bonded to you through the name of Jesus. That we will not go astray. I ask please that you renew the spirit of joy for the things of the kingdom. That we may experience the same joy that was in Jesus as he ministered.

Help us please to overcome when we are confronted with so many who hate us. Keep us from doing evil in return. We have been given a new spirit within us and we know we are not of this world's order. But we live in this world and have to do with it's commodities. Please santify us so that the interaction with this world doesn't get us down. Santify us with thy word of truth. Please let the truth which we have taken up within us bind us with the other in likemindedness in a bond of real earnest love one for another. Work your miracle of making us here into an unity that pleases you. Just like that unity you have, Jesus, in the Father. I pray that we here may be made perfect in that special holy love so outsiders will acknowledge that you Jesus are in us and we are in the Father.

May the love of Jesus Christ, that same love that you dear God the Father have for your Son, be in us one for another and that Jesus reigns in our hearts by faith for your glory.

For your kindgom of Christ's sake I pray
Amen.

Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth and all that is within it....

Praise be to you.

As your child who has been ever so blessed with spiritual and material blessings I wish now to present myself to you for interceeding for my brethern here at The Remnant Online. You are their wonderful loving Shepard looking out for their needs. I pray that they will keep the lines of communication with you open so nothing will damage that intimate relationship they have with you through sin.

Thank you for taking care of the supply of their wants and needs. You are so lovingly merciful. May the coming Sabbath be the green pastures they need to lie down in. Let them experience the rest they need for having such a hectic work week. Please bring them in some enviroment on Sabbath that compares to the still waters of drinking with the sheep had. May the still waters be a good sermon, or taped message or read in a book of inspiration. Refresh my brethern according to the longings of their spirits and minds.

I pray for the sick amongst us who are not only in body but are in soul sick in some way. Restoreth their soul to equalibrium. And if they have strayed from the path of right doing please in your gentle way lead them back to the path of righteousness for your name sake.

May your Holy Spirit speak strongly the words of guidance to my brethern so they will fulfill the purpose that you have ordained for their lives. And if some of my brethern need walk through a valley of a loved ones death may they not be frightened by the awful shadows threatening them with loneliness or loss. I pray that such testing of my brethern by a case of death in their lives be resulted in quick healing of the grief period.

Teach us how not to fear evil but to hate it and be repulsed by any sign of evil so we will not participate in it's deceptive allurements. Protect us please from the tempter who is beckoning us to participate in evil.

Praise be to God on high for your faithfulness of being with each and every one of us who love you and keep your commandments ! May the discipline of thy rod and staff comfort us.

Let us please have the experience of you preparing a table of plenty in the presence of those who have made themselves enemies to us by wrong thinking. We hope in this victory over our enemies. We ask you to please consecrate us with that special oil of anointing that is special in your eyes. Blessing we have had in abundance already because we are apart of you and you are are head.

We want nothing more than to have you make the big decisions and anoint us with heavenly wisdom to recognize how to cope with all the little details of life so we will not be the cause of hurt to one another. In your house of church we want to stay continually dwelling and not be evacuated because of submitting to the devil's plot to capture our alliegance. Grant that we become the strength to resist the devil in your name so we will dwell in security forever in Eternity with you.

Thank you Jesus for hearing this prayer
And please grant these petitions according to your will,
amen.

To you, our loving God father in heaven, I address my prayer in the name of Jesus our Christ.
With a heart of great thankfulness I praise you for the gift of grace you have given us in Christ. You have given us your church members talents for the use of others. For the purpose of encouragement and building up your church body. I ask now that those here lurking will be blessed for your will’s sake in using the gift they have for supporting the believers in their tasks. I pray for the preachers among us to be anointed with wisdom from above in sermon selection and delivery. I pray for the medical people among us that they be anointed with the graciousness of love in serving others as their needs are met. I pray for our teachers of the bible and spirit of Prophecy among us to be protected by your Spirit that they stay on track and teach only the truth as you see it.

Help us all please learn to study for ourselves. Give us each please, the incentive to want the harmony of the faith and unity of love as our priority. Stablize us in our beliefs that we will not be tossed about with the various winds of erroneous teachings. Protect us from the twisting tricks of men amongst us who are deceiving us into error. Christus our will is that you be our head in all these theological matters. Please protect us from the false Shepards who want to be control-elitists keeping us sheep dumb, blind and mechanically obedient. Set us free, dear Jesus, to obey your commandments with understanding and with a loving heart.

I pray, Father in heaven, for those among us who are being attacked by the ‘unclean thing’. Whatever it maybe in anyone of our lives, I pray for your influence of grace and power to set us free from these temptations. That we be renewed in mind and renewed in the spirit of our being to resist. I pray that you will be within us working out the matter of our overcoming in your strength the old nature using deceit and unrighteousness. Lead us please into the way of holy living. Guide our tongues that we do not insult others. Guide our tempers that they stay placid enough not to sin in anger. And give us please the courage to ask forgiveness of those we have sinned against.

For Jesus sake I pray,
Amen.

We are starting a series of health/wellness and evangalistic series on the 21st of this month-this coming saturday night. It is being given by Thomas Jackson. We had a free vegetarian banquet tonight prior to the start of the meetings. We  had a good turnout, probably 150-200 people. A large turnout for this area. we will be having them for the next 6 weeks.

Please pray earnestly for these meetings. I live in an area where outreach and church growth is almost nil. We have lots of new-agers, earth muffins, greenpeacers, etc. They respond well to health and wellness but not to the gospel. Please remember us in your prayers for the next 6 weeks.

The company that my brother works for is sending him down to Lousiana to help restore power to the affected areas after hurricane Lili hits shore. He has been told that snakes and alligators are a problem in the flooded areas he will be in. Back at home he has left a young wife, a 3 year old son, and a 2 month old daughter. If you would please pray for his safe return home.

Also he is in the middle of his first real witnessing experience with the driver of the truck he is riding in. He is worried that he isn't saying the "right" things. Please pray that the Lord will give him the wisdom he needs.

We should also remember the people of LA and TX who will be affected by this storm.

The most recent request from Jim speaks to a crisis that is emerging in the south. I pray for protection for all of those who will be attending to the needs. I pray that the impact of the storm would be diminshed and that Your people will find refuge under Your wings.

There is a family at our church/school where the father will be going in for surgery to remove a tumor in his brain that is giving him pain and tremendous headaches (so that he can't stand up).  It has gone from the outside of the skull through to the brain.  There are four children and the wife is still recovering from an injury in a car crash recently.  Father's name is Byron, mom's is Luberta.  (his uncle had a similar operation for a similar reason and died within 3 weeks of the surgery, so the family is understandably nervous)

Dear Lord, we know that it will not be long now and we will be seeing You and those who have been waiting for You all this time. We thank you for this hope and for the faith to hang on to it---regardless of what we have to go through.

Thank you for your love for us. Shine the truth of that love on us Lord in every situation, and in every situation, be able to Praise Your Name.

Answer to prayer--the father above who had the brain tumor--his surgery was postponed so he could have further testing.  Several specialists, more MRI, etc.  Still showing urgent need to operate.  Major headaches, etc.

Then he went in for another MRI, and there is no sign of the tumor at all!  No headaches for several weeks, no need for surgery.  Praise the Lord!

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,   I come to you today to ask for many,  many prayers for 3ABN.  There are many broken hearts today because of the action taken by Linda in leaving 3ABN.  They  need prayer because we as God's remnant church are a light shining into the world of darkness.  Darkness also which happened at 3ABN  may have caused a sad rebellion in the hearts of many people throughout the world against our church.  Ask God to send the Holy Spirit to those who hold this against our church  to realize we are all humans and only humans are we.  Pray for Linda, to help her to see what she has done, and that she may return....   Pray for 3ABN, for God to give them the continuous  strength needed to keep the light shining bright.   And add to your prayers, for the Holy Spirit to give to some, additional truth needed so as not to preach an incomplete message or untruthful message to the world.

Thank you Lord for 3 ABN so the whole world will soon know of you.... Prohecy fulfilled, GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD.... And soon Jesus will be seen in the clouds, His glorious coming....

Please pray for my brothers. They grew up Adventist Christians, but...

...one now has his own brand of new age beliefs and relies heavily on daily horoscopes to guide him. He believes God or the ''Great Spirit'' has given us astrology and crows/ravens to complement the Bible in guiding our lives, and doesn't believe we need a savior, that Jesus died for nothing.

Another is still a Christian, but goes to a non-denominational church on Sunday, and occasionally does the faith healing/fainting thing.

A third is still an Adventist, and finally started going to church recently with his wife, but they both smoke and have failed to quit, after trying several times. I'm concerned that their first child will be deformed or handicapped in some way.

I remember, back when I was a child growing up, a very happy boy gifted with the ability to play the piano like I never seen before. He had a wonderful mom that took him to church each week and he attended church school with me year after year. But we all knew he was different.

He went on to teach piano in his large apartment in N.Y. Since then I have only seen him once at campmeeting. His aunt however asked me to contact him, telling me of his lifestyle. He had been a friend of mine and I cared about his being ready for the Lord when He came. But through the years I have tried to find him. Then when I got a computer I tried even harder.... but to no avail.

The other day I got in contact with his brother in a way I had not expected. He told me that it was so sad what happened to him. With all he had going for him, he is now living on the streets of Chicago, a drug addict. He said he would give him my message to him, but he has not heard from him in 13 months.

I don't know what happened to this man, this friend of mine, this gifted musician. But I know he left God and satan took him from there. I am not real sure he ever really knew what it was to give his life to God, even though he was baptized. Please brothers and sisters, pray for him. His name is Dan, we called him Danny. I know that God answers prayers and can bring this man back to himself and back to God. I know there is a way, there is always a way through prayer.

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray today for Dan. I don't know where he is or what he is doing right now or what frame of mind he is in or how badly his phycial and Spiritual life has fallen, but You do dear Lord. Please Touch this fallen creature of Yours and make him whole Father. Bring him back to the truth of his youth and teach him again Your ways. Heal him in every way dear Lord is my prayer. I ask all in Jesus Holy Name and for His sake. That it may bring glory to your name. Amen

Dear Friends in Jesus,
    I am requesting much prayer these next two and three days.   HURRICANE JAVIAR is heading right towards us, and is not quite as big as Ivan. Thank God, but he is working up to a catagory 5. Many are boarding upthere houses.   We have filled all vehicles full of gas, and all are water jugs are full.  The last hurricane, cost us over $12,000 Dollars.  For a few weeks there was no water, no food in the stores, no trucks could get in or out.  This one looks worse.  They have been expecting a big one to hit soon and this may be it.  God is good and I pray he will protect us.

God delights to hear our prayers and to answer them in the very best way! Jesus is coming soon and the winds are being released. It is time to be found hiding in Christ. Jesus loves us and desires that that we spend eternity with Him. The trials of this world are to work for our salvation and to God's glory as we trust in Him.

Let us pray for each other and that Jesus will come soon!

Dear Heavenly Father,

We ask, we pled with You that you will protect Ele and her family. They are in dangers way. We know that the angels are letting loose of the four winds and satan is doing his alful thing. But You dear God of the heavens, You are stronger then satan or his helpers and You can protect Ele completely. We pray too, according to Your Will, to protect their home. Send Thy Angels to spread their wings and cover them with heavens protection.
I ask this in Jesus Name and for His Sake, that glory and honor may be given to Thee. Amen.
Thank you dear Father,
Marie

I could not find an official announcement from the Michigan Conference. However, this was announced publically earlier this month.

Linda Gallimore the wife of Jay Gallimore, President of the Michigan Conference has been diagnosed with lung cancer. They found a mass about the size of a fist in one of her lungs. They are going to do surgery this coming friday.

The Michigan Conference has benefited greatly from the spiritual leadership of this couple. Let's pray that the enemy will not have his way in this.

We join with many others in asking you to work in this family in a way that will bless them, your church, and will bring honor and glory to you. If healing our sister will be a blessing as we think it will, and it will further your work, we ask for her healing. If there is anything in her life that will stop you from hearing this prayer, we pray that you will help in removing this obstacle. We thank you for Brother Gallimore and his wife and their ministry and ask for your continued blessing on them. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, A very dear Advetists friend has just come out of prison and is having a hard time adjusting.  The Correction Department treats them all as severe criminals, even after they had put in their time.

Please pray for my friend that he may be released from parole this year, and that his restrictions be lifted. Pray that the lies of an ex-wife will not put him back in prison. Pray also that he may find a job soon... He has so much love for the Lord and wants to do His work.

Dearest Heavenly Father, please hear my prayer for my brother in Christ.  Give him peace and place your hands on him so he feels your security and protection. Keep him ever so close to you.  Give him a job Lord, and heal his broken heart. I pray in Jesus precious name.

Let us be sure to be happy too, especially when around them. In time it helps. Please give us what it takes, whatever that may be, to help them or send to them help in some other way. We know you don't desire to see those who love you so to be in pain. Please help Sister Ele's friend and others we want to see happy again. Please. I ask in Jesus Holy Name, Amen

That's the only the that keeps me going along with the inspiration you guys give me. I love you lots and I hope I can be there for you like you have for me.

Thy Will Be Done

To Carol and God's Will For Her

Dreaming through the daylight hours
Wondering what life will bring,
Seeing the good and also the bad
And still wanting to sing.

This is Carol, my daughter dear
As sweet as life can be,
Filled with love and kindness
Beloved of the family tree.

Now we are told she’s really sick
And cancer may linger near,
Dear friends please pray for Carol
That God will take away all fear.

I wish that she be healed for sure
If this is in God’s plans,
But that she be ready for Him
Is where everything really stands.

The time we spend upon this earth
Is only to prepare,
For life with Jesus forevermore
His Righteousness to share.

“Dear Father, wrap her in Your arms
“Protect her, she’s Your own,
“Give her peace and courage knowing
“She will “never” be alone.”

Bless those also who are praying for me and my son.  Help us to accept our trials,  help us to go to Calary, especially today and thank our holy Lord Jesus, who has died for our sins.

Tonight was a tough night. While moving bees into the summer yards my brother and I discouvered that someone has helped themselves to 68 of our bee hives. We are certain we know who did it. My prayer request is that this young man will be impressed to come to us and confess before we get the police involved.

Losing these in addition to the 256 stolen from us in California earlier this year has really left a bad taste in our mouths. It is hard to forgive those that take away your income.

We pray for our dear brother that you will encourage him with your promise that "all" things work together for good to them that love you. We often can't see how, but your promises are sure.

I too ask for your prayers in urgent need. I have not sold my property in Mexico yet, BUT yesterday  we sold our mobile home here in Paradise Calif. where I now live and the buyers requested 30 days to get out. We need the money from the sale of our Mexico property to buy  anything.  PLEASE dear brothers and sisters, pray that we find a place to live within  the next 30 days.

Dearest Heavenly Father, I pray for Richard, as his 1/2 part of his mobile sits on a highway somewhere....please Lord send a few angels to protect it till he can move it.   Please give him the energy, the help he needs to get settled in his new home.
I also pray for all requesting prayer. Help Richard Sherman to get back all that was stolen from his bee hives.

Lord, my son and I put our lives in your hands.  I claim your many promises that you will never forsake us. Please sell our Little piece in Mexico, so we can buy a small home here. I thank you in advance for finding us a place to live, whether it be a rental or a sale. You will help us so we can start our ministry.  In Jesus name I pray.....

Dearest Brother Sherwin,

Know that as Jesus Christ your Brother, we your Brothers and Sisters in Christ hold you in our arms tonight and the difficult days and nights forward. We know that your parents are resting in Christ, although that does not always lessen the immediate pain of loss.

We are thankful with you that the signs of our Lord's coming are so obvious and so immediate, and that you along with the rest of us will be united with the ones we love...my grandmothers, our good doctor, Sister Ele, and others so dear to our hearts.

We rejoice that they suffer no more and we pray for the strength to continue to lift up the trumpet and hold high the standard, the strength to cry aloud on the steps of the temple and not remain dumb dogs who will not bark, and yes speed to the four corners of the earth with the Three Angel's Message.

We pray tonight for oil in our lamps now and at all times so that we will not be caught outside a closed door and that we will be allowed into the feast and that all our loved ones will have been warned and not neglected by us, the frontrunners for Christ.

In His Holy Name,

Hi Brother Serwin:

You were blessed by God to have had such a father. You have much to draw from, but remember you have a Father in Heaven that will and can be with you even more now and will give you all that you need to go forward in this world.

Soon, so very soon we all will be together for all eternity.

May the Lord bless and keep you dear brother as we mark toward the course of the Great Day of the Lord.

Brother Richard, we sorrow with you over the loss of your mother and father, but rejoice to know they are both resting in Christ. You are indeed blessed to have had Christian parents. Their greatest hope is to see their children join them on that greatest of days when Jesus returns to take us home. Your family is in our prayers. May your parents be blessed to see all of their family on that glorious day!

Heavenly Father comfort our dear brother and his family in their loss and use this to bring honor and glory to your name and salvation to others, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

I would like to place a request that some way may be found to get rid of the awful pain I have been going through. I have several things wrong with my back, but have never had this kind of pain all the time. It is stopping me from getting things done, and from spending much time online and many other things. Please keep me in your prayers. Thank you.

Heavenly Father, this is a dark and painful world. You know only too well since you allowed your Son to come here as a helpless baby. You know the situation with our dear Sister Marie. We ask that you comfort her. Give her wisdom to know just what she can do to help her pain. If there is something she can change in her life, or something that she can do using your natural remedies, we ask that you would show her. If she needs the help of a physician, then we pray that you would lead her to one that loves and serves you and understands your ways.

We know that you will not remove all of our trials for they keep us close to you, but you desire to comfort us and draw us ever closer to you. This is our dear sister's desire. To know you and to give honor and glory to you with her life. If healing her will accomplish your will, then we ask this in Jesus name. Hear our prayers that you may be glorified, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Sister Marie, I am so sorry as I have been living with chronic excruciating pain for several years now. Each of us must decide to do whatever we feel God leads us to do.

I found myself so debilitated and bed bound that I finally did get on a maintained dose of pain meds, however I felt the trade off of regaining mobility was far worth it.

God bless,
Wendy

The following is posted for Sister Dora:

Today my granddaughter started classes in the community college near where she lives. This is the first time she has ever gone to a public school, and I imagine it will be a different experience for her.

I am asking for God's protection, physical and spiritual, and as she said, "Maybe sometime I can be a witness to someone."

Thank you in advance for your prayers for her.

This is a very special prayer request that Sister Dora has requested. Her grand-daughter attended Andrews for a semester and now is attending a public school. She loves Jesus and now will find herself going to school in the world. She will be a light to all that she comes in contact with. God will use her in a powerful way to lead others to a knowledge of the truth.

Heavenly Father, we join together and ask your blessings on our dear sister. Keep her safe and keep her close to you. Make a her a bright light in a dark world. Bless her decision to walk in the light as Jesus is in the light. Open the hearts of many with whom she will come in contact with. Give her an extra measure of your Holy Spirit that others will see Jesus in her. We ask all this for your honor and your glory in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Thank you so much, Brother Richard, for putting this on.  I did not think I got through with this request.

Today was my granddaughter's first day at school.  She told me that the classes are not extra large, and at this point, the instructors seemed fine. Really, the classes she is taking are more basic and none seem to have the "pagan" flavor of the "Arts and Creativity" at Andrews.

Please continue in prayers for her.  She has said several times that perhaps she can be an influence to someone there.  She never met anyone at Andrews who seemed to feel they needed anything, but that they had it already. Please pray that she will not be influenced by the world, either.

I am so blest that I actually feel a little guilty for asking for this prayer request; however, I have been stuck at home for two weeks today because of so much snow. Just need your prayers that the cabin fever can be controlled.

Got my truck half-way up the hill to get out, but got stuck - took several days to get it back in the garage, so it will be a while longer before mobility happens. Am living in the national forest (good country living!!!) but it has its disadvantages in winter. Another storm is due here this weekend ... so I ask for your prayers to endure it.

Australia: Adventist Churches Pray For End to Drought

February 20, 2007 Ringwood, Victoria, Australia .... [Nathan Brown/The Record/ANN Staff]

Australia has been in the grip of a severe drought since last year. [Photo courtesy of Reuters]

Members of more than 400 Seventh-day Adventist churches across Australia united in prayer Feb. 17 to pray simultaneously for the end of a severe drought and water crisis plaguing the country since last August.

"Australia is experiencing drought conditions unparalleled since records have been kept in many areas of the country," said Pastor Chester Stanley, president of the Adventist church's Australian Union Conference (AUC). "The statistics, figures and broken records keep coming."

"Authorities are saying that something like 98 percent of New South Wales, the most-populous state, is suffering from it. But of course the whole country is affected," said Gary Krause, director of the Office of Adventist Mission at the Adventist world church headquarters in the United States.

The idea for a corporate prayer as a part of worship services came from church members.

"I have had a number of church members correspond with me from around Australia suggesting it would be very appropriate for us as a church to take time for earnest prayer in relation to the extremely serious situation we have here in Australia," he explained. "The AUC executive committee at our year-end meetings enthusiastically endorsed this idea and consequently decided to invite our churches to unite in a special season of prayer."

"We have many church members who have been impacted by the drought," Stanley reported. "Certainly, conference presidents talk about the drought impacting upon tithe, and the picture I get is that some of our members are [having a hard time]."

The focus for prayer on that day obviously included prayers for rain, but also for those people who have been impacted by the drought and appeals for more responsible use of Australia's natural resources.

"There's something I like about the corporate church, down on its knees across Australia, earnestly seeking the Lord," said Pastor Stanley. He says church members from other parts of the South Pacific region expressed a desire to join the Australian church in prayer. "It's nice that the rest of the [region] can pray with and for us."

"This is a crisis and I think as a church we need to be on our knees," said Pastor Stanley. "But I think also it is a great opportunity to declare to our communities around Australia that we are Christians and that we are a praying people. We should not be seen as a group of people who lock ourselves away but that we are people who care for our communities-- that we're Australians who do have a love for our country."

Krause, who has just returned from Australia, added, "I'm glad the church in Australia is responding in a spiritual way, and of course the church is also geared to physically help those in need where possible."

I seen this today online. WOW! I really feel for them.

Dear Father in Heaven, You and only you know why this is taking place and why it is lasting for such a long time. There are people in need of food and water, that may die if they don't have rain soon. Please Lord, according to Your Loving Will dear Lord. Amen

We come to you asking that you give us the Holy Spirit that we may know if this is your leading. We are needy and have done as you have asked. We understand that we are miserable, wretched, naked, and blind and are have delayed the coming of Jesus. We have not walked in the light and believe we are rich. Help us to know just where you would have us to be. We need more of your Holy Spirit. We claim your promise to give us this great blessing that Jesus may be glorifies. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Lord you know all our needs, what each one of us is feeling, suffering and need so much comfort.

Help us to listen to Your voice and reach out to each other and give support and fellowship in these hard times and the times to come.

You bless us everyday and we thank you for those blessings. You give us trials to walk in and we thank you for those trials. You know our frame and what we can endure and where our weaknesses are and help us to overcome in You.

Thank you for Jesus, Your precious Son who gave all for us. Remind us to remember each day that gift You gave us us from whom all blessings flow.

Today I learned that my two best friends have very sever medical problems.

Carolyn has two herniated disks in her neck and one in her back. She is in constant pain all the time and the only time she can get any relief is lying down in bed.

Then a few hours later when I called my friend Heidi I found out that the doctor has diagnosed her with COPD/Emphysema. Since she never was around smokers nor smoked and has lived in a good environment for years they are suspected a genetic forum of this.

With my own medical problems of the last three months we are a sorry bunch of gals.

Please keep them in your prayers for me as I love them dearly.

I've asked others for prayer for a friend in critical condition and have been refused by some because of his profession.

This friend, and local Deputy, is in critical condition. He stopped a vehicle a few nights ago and was attacked by the driver. In the struggle, the driver pulled a gun and began firing at the officer who returned fire.

My friend was hit twice, once in his right hand, and his weapon was knocked from his hand. He lost two fingers and ran behind the vehicle to escape the fire. The driver entered his vehicle, a large suv, then quickly backed the vehicle over my friend. He then sped away dragging the officer down the road. My friend received numerous broken bones and severe head inhuries.

I suppose those who refuse to pray think that the rulers of this land who are to wield a sword of protection are not needed any longer?  Sad, very sad.

Heavenly Father, we pray for this fallen officer who in the line of duty while protecting the citizens in his community was injured. We also pray for his family that you would comfort them. Thank you for those who put themselves in harms way to protect society from the evil that is increasing daily. Today more than ever we need honest police officers that will stand between the evil in this world and innocent citizens. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

And I also pray for the man who injured our friend. I pray that you would work upon his heart that he may be changed. And while you are working on his heart, I pray you give those who are searching for him wisdom to apprehend him and protection from him. And, sadly we also pray that you would grant this criminal an  honest judge that would render a just sentence that will keep him from attempting to kill anyone ever again, if he survives the manhunt now underway. I pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

My life has been difficult the last month. I have been in a hospital (visiting) where I come in contact with many suffering either with disease or those who are related to the sick one. In this trial, I have had many blessings being able to minister to these fearful and sick folks. Many cancer patients and their families. Today, one patient that I met over a month ago, is nearing death. Her name is Bonnie. She is a beautiful young lady in her late twenties or early thirties. She has two young daughters that she told me are the great joy of her life.

I have not seen Bonnie for some time. I go by her room and see that she has been nutripenic, without white blood cells, for some time. This was her fourth trip  to the hospital for treatment. The treatment has not worked.

I met her parents today. I overheard them talking about her and after praying, I entroduced myself. I offered my prayers for Bonnie and her family. I ask my brothers and sisters to pray for this family, that God will use this situation to help this family and for His glory.  This is a public request after all  else has failed. I don't know God's will, but He has given us the opportunity to ask for His help with this family, whatever that may be.

I will share more at a later time in regards to what transpired as a result of my prayers and introducing myself to Bonnie's parents. God is working and we can trust He will do more because we have prayed for Bonnie and her family.

It appears the time is very, very short for Richard's mother. We solicit prayers for this dear woman, her children, her grandchildren and family.

Psalm 103

Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger forever.
He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul

Dear all,

I'd like to ask for your help in prayer. God was and is good to us. He protected us to return safely in our home country. We tried to live our best helping our old parents and we keep doing this. But we need to live also. In less than a month I had a job.  That wasn't just good. It was great. But for reasons unknown to me, my husband cannot find one yet. They keep promising him a job, telling him how much they need him, but nothing yet. He is kind of depressed now.
Lately I started to hear bad news about the company I work for. It looks like they will be forced to sent us home. I know God promised to give us our daily bread, so will you please join us in prayer for our jobs. He is the only One knowing the future and we trust Him to take care of our needs. We really appreciate your help in prayer

Dear Sister, Thank you for letting us know so that we can pray for you and your needs. We hope that you get work soon for your husband and that you can keep your job, if this is God's will.  I have a very good friend that got stuck in this reality deceit that is causing so many now to loose their homes. Not only are they loosing their home, but for two years have not been able to sell their nice little place. This month they will forclose. On top of this the husband in this family has been ill with one problem and then another. Now they have found that he has cancer well advanced that the dr. never seen. This has been a blessing to the family for they have learned to eat right and raw and he feels better than he ever did. Don't know if they changed this in time to stop the cancer, but he is feeling so good now. The whole thing here is that many are being tried beyond what most people could take. But they are hanging on to the Lord and His promises with strength that they never thought they could have. God is leading and He has a plan for us. Regardless of what happens God is still and always in control.

Dear Father in heaven, We are so blessed to be able to talk with you. This is something that NO ONE can take away from us. Please keep us strong for YOU. We need your help so much. Please bless this dear sister Adina and her family. Help her husband to get work where it is Your Will. And help Sister Adina to keep her job too according to Your Will. There are many leaning on Your promises today like never before, and many more are to follow. Please be with us Lord, Your children, that we will never leave You and falter. We ask in Jesus Holy Name and for His Sake, Amen

May God Bless you dear sister Adina. :)

California is falling lower and lower on the scale of moral worth.  The state supreme court overturned the voter legislation banning homosexual marriage. So now the homosexuals and their supporters are celebrating and will continue their push to indoctrinate our children that homosexuality is good and proper.  Today San Francisco is exalting homosexuals with their homosexual pride celebration. The whole state is now performing homosexual marriages. Soon after this began, God removed His hand of protection and fire fell from heaven on the state. Whether from Satan or God, we cannot tell, but we know that God has allowed it. Over a thousand fires burn in the state. Nothing has ever been seen like it.  California was not prepared for such judgments. Help has been requested from other states, the federal government, and other countries.

There are a few that love and serve God in the state. For their sake, please pray for rain and God's protection on their lands,  and for the safety of the firefighters.  God will still mingle mercy with judgment. Many will turn to Him in their time of need. I hear now that many are praying for rain. Let us ask God to use this for the salvation of many.  And, we may even ask for rain in San Francisco, if it will be to God's glory.

My oldest brother who has been in and out of the church for years, talked to me today, and for the first time ever, he asked for prayer for his family. His wife also was raised in the SDA church, and there are children involved.

He and his wife own a big business in our state.

Over the past year their relationship has been strained, and now there is a great possibility that they will get divorced. He has taken a 6 week vacation to try to sort things out, and sent my father who worked at his business on a vacation as well to the great lakes during this time.

He now is asking many questions. I think this is turning him to God in some sort of way. I am praying that the Lord will open not only his, but his wife and children's eyes to see their need of a Savior, and to come back to God.

He never wants to discuss religious matters period! He has had some very harsh opinions about the church and the SOP in the past. Somehow, he thinks that when the sunday laws come, if he is around at that time, he will be ready, and can join the church then. I have not been able to approach him on any of these issues, because of his opinions.

It just surprised me that he talked to me about prayer. This tells me that he is open to some degree at this point. I please ask for your prayer for my brother and his family.

Thanks,
 
Your brother in christ.

Brother Brian, wanted me to post this prayer request and praise for him since he is now without a computer. He returned today from a trip to discover that his house had been robbed. It's my understanding that of course it was mostly the electronics and tools that were stolen. So he is requesting your prayers as he deals with this situation.

However, he also wanted to state that this is also a praise report. He is thankful that his family was not home when it happened that at least the thieves were not maliciously destructive.

It is not nice to have your home violated in such a manner. I came back from a "missionary trip" to find my house with all the drawers open. They had stolen all of my electronic equipment including my computer.

God gave me a faster computer.

Heavenly Father, thank you for helping our Brother Brian to be thankful amid his trial. Continue to bless him and his family as they labor for you, we pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Thanks for your prayers everyone. We feel blessed despite the hassle this has/will be. I'll be accessing TRO during breaks at work for some time, but I'll try to keep up with things.

They got the computer, tools and some other misc. electronics. I'm sure they were very disappointed to find we had no TV or Stereo System.  :D

Thanks again to everyone. God bless you all!

Please keep the Michigan Conference in your prayers. This is the year of our quinquennial session, so we will be re-electing officers for the Michigan conference. As with any conference there are those that would seek to change what we have, but we want the Lord to rule over this process! The session will be taking place on Sunday, September 21 (The day after our Men of Faith Conference).

Thanks,

Brian

North America needs more conferences such as Michigan. We will be praying for the session, dear brother. It is a light that needs to continue burning brightly.

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the Michigan Conference and the revival and reformation you have given them. We ask that you reveal yourself in this upcoming meeting, that your will be done. Show the church the power of grace in this meeting. Give your church consecrated leadership that your name may be glorified. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

A friend of mine Ernie here on TRO has pneumonia. I got an email last night from him, and he mentioned that he was quite sick. Today, my father spoke to his wife and they had taken him to the emergency room late last night into early this morning to have him checked out, and it was confirmed that he has viral pneumonia.

I just got done taking to his wife on the phone, and she said that he is wore out and quite sick and may be laid up for awhile depending how well the medicine works.

He has been dealing with some issues within his church which he has gotten some positive responses in regards to it just in the past couple of days, and it appears that satan is not happy with Ernies work and is trying to attack him from other angles.

If it be Your will that his man be healed to carry on the good fight of faith, bringing glory to You and Your cause, we ask that. Bring comfort to his family and him as they rest in You. Thank You as You have carried us thus far - Father, we need to go a little further. Bless us all and keep us as we work to hasten Your coming. This is our prayer in the Name of Jesus who saves us.

I want to place a prayer request for a young man who is friends with Dora. His name is Jason. He is in the valley of decision and is reading about surrender of the whole heart in Steps to Christ.

Thank you, my dear sisters for prayers for my dear young friend.  His name is Joshua, we call him Josh.  We have been talking almost every night, and he wants to get the Conflict series from the church to read.  We have them in paperback, and he is especially interested in the Great Controversy.  He is an electrician, and is laid off work now, so he said this is a good time to spend in study. For several weeks now, he has been learning to cook for himself, not using meat.  He told me last night that he has gotten to the point he does not want meat now.

Please continue to pray for him, he knows much of the truth, and has accepted it.  I believe the biggest hurdle is for him to believe that all he has to do to have sins forgiven is to be repentant and go to Jesus asking for forgiveness.  It is so hard for him not to think that he must do something.  We are in the process of studying "coming to Jesus," and "staying with Jesus."

Seventh-day Adventists continue to search for a missing medical missionary plane, which disappeared Monday, February 16 in the jungles of La Gran Sabana, a vast southeastern region in Venezuela.

The Cessna 182N plane piloted by Robert Norton, who volunteers for Adventist Medical Aviation (AMA) in Venezuela, is believed to have hit turbulent weather after taking off from the community of Carun en route to the community of Bethel.

Also in the plane were six passengers: Neiba Norton, wife of the pilot; Gladis Zerpa, an Adventist teacher; a woman accompanying a 14-year-old and a woman traveling with her young son.

Next Monday, March 9, I will have my first cataract surgery.  I expect it to go well, but there is a question as to whether it will correct my distance double vision or not.  I am praying it will, and am asking for your prayers, too.  I am told that a prism ground into the lenses may correct it if the surgery does not.  I had double vision back in the 80s due to a muscle weakened by bad migraines, and had to wear a patch for a while for it to heal, the Dr is not sure if this is related to that problem or not.  Also, I have macular degeneration, but it does not seem to have progressed.  Our eyes are so important in our work for Jesus, and to be able to drive as long as possible.  Thank you for your prayers.

Once again, our granddaughter has applied for an ultra sound program, offered at the community college near where we go to church. She would live with us for a school year. She took a class here last summer, in preparation for this, and has taken all her prerequisites at the community college near her in MI.

She does not have a 4.0 grade average, which they prefer, but has high grades.  So, it will be a miracle if she does get in, and that is what we are praying for.  If it is the right thing for her, and God's will, that she get in this course...if not, that He will show her what she needs to do.  She is supposed to know something about it in April, so I ask for your prayers.

Heavenly Father, we come asking in faith for your blessings on our dear sister who is giving her life into your hands. At times it seems as if we are in-between a rock and hard place, but we know that what ever comes to us has to go through Jesus first if we are abiding in Christ. Sister Sheri could not leave her sick children home alone and yet she has missed much work. We pray that you will lead her and guide her into that perfect path you have set before her. You know her needs and we know you will provide for her and her children. Give her peace that passes understanding as she passes through these difficult times. Help her to train up her children in your ways. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Thank you, Dear Sybil!  Earlier today I did not feel like getting on here, but my eye is feeling a bit better tonight.  The Dr did a kind of corrective procedure along with the cataract surgery to hopefully help the double vision problem, so it is a bit worse than it would have been otherwise, but maybe the results will be worth it.

Surgery went well, and while being prapped, I was able to share with the lady about being a vegan.  When I had told her I was a vegetarian, she said, "O, what do you eat for protein?  My husband and I think we should get away from as much meat."  Of course that was like turning on a faucet, we talked all the time until I was taken to surgery, and I plan to take her some recipes and maybe a cook book next time.  Isn't it wonderful how God works when we allow him?

Also, I praise Him that our precious Elizabeth is with us tonight.  She will take me in tomorrow for my post op. check.  She will be here maybe a month at least.  I can hardly believe we are so blessed!

Thank you all for your prayers...will keep you posted.

Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement.  I am going in tomorrow AM at 8:15 for my second eye surgery.  I have the cookbook ready to take to the lady who prepares me for surgery.  It is a beautiful cookbook, with even some quotes in it.  Yes, Brother Richard, she had my mind so much on how to prepare food, I almost forgot I was getting ready for surgery.  God is so good!  He provides just what we need when we need them.

Elizabeth did not get into the Ultra Sound program she has been trying to enter.  She was 5 points short, and there were enough others who had those 5 points who filled it.  But, we had prayed much about it, so we know that God has something else for her.  One blessing has come from the rejection, she has decided to stay on here and attend camp meeting in May, as she won't be coming back here in the fall.  It is wonderful to have her here, to talk with, study with, and just enjoy.  She is a great help to me too. I treasure every day she is here.

Again, thank you all for prayers for both Elizabeth and myself.  I look forward to about two-three weeks from now when I can get fitted for my reading glasses, and find out if I need a prism ground into the lens for the astigmatism.  I believe it is better, though.

Cancer is rampant in the US.  It is increasing as we expect since so many still are eating animal products that transmit many of the diseases of animals including cancer. Dairy is full of Leukemia Virus. In a study at UC Berkely, they found Bovine Leukemia Virus in roughly half of the breast cancer patients in the study. :(

Heavenly Father, you know the situation with our sister. We ask you to draw close to her as she contemplates her future. We also ask that you give the physicians wisdom to know just what to do and skill to do it. We ask that you heal our sister if it would be to your glory and her salvation. If there is something that she needs to do in order for you to heal her, we ask that you reveal this. We thank you for all of the light you have given in the area of health and pray that this will be a blessing to our sister in her search for healing. We thank you for our Sister Colleen and pray that you give her wisdom to be able to comfort and help her sister. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Thank you, Brother Richard, and thanks to all my TRO family for your prayers.  It seems that my eyes are progressing as they should; I had to go back to the Dr yesterday because the pressure was twice as high as it should have been when I was there the day before.  But, yesterday it was almost normal.

The worst thing now is not being able to see very well, because I have no glasses that fit my eyes.  Also, I am having so many drops put in my eyes, they stay blurry a lot of the time.  But...this, too, shall pass.  And, I hope to be able to see better than I have for a long while.

Thank you for prayers for myself and for Elizabeth, I will tell her.  She has decided to stay with us through May and go to campmeeting with me....another blessing.  She has never before been able to stay here that long.

I have another praise!  One of my Youth class (Brent, the serious one) was baptized today.  It was a high day, his baptism and we had communion!

May God guide the Dr's hand, may you, Ernie, be at peace, knowing that nothing will come to you except what comes through God's hand first.

When my granddaughter was a baby, she had tortoculis, (not sure about the spelling) a condition of her neck which pulled it to one side, and caused much pain.  The only thing that helped was our chiropractor.  She was too small for the adjusting table, so the Dr laid her across her mama's lap and worked on her neck.  Elizabeth never cried out, but when she was raised up, huge tears were standing in her eyes.  But, as long as her mama had her hands on her, she felt safe.  I never forgot that...and have applied it to God's care for me.  As long as I keep myself in His hands, nothing will come to me, but that comes through His hands first.  Remember that, dear Ernie, when you go into surgery.  Praying for you.

I come here with some concerns that I am asking prayers for. First off my wife. After teaching in our schools for 20+ years she was burned out so about 6 years ago she resigned and started working for a veterinarian. She has always has a great love for animals and educating people about them, and in fact the vet has promoted her to head up client education in the area of puppies, kittens and nutrition, among other things. A couple of years ago the clinic where she works hired a business consulting company to help it with it's struggling finances. This company comes in from time to time to conduct training seminars. The seminars have gotten increasingly strange and we have recently become aware of the fact that the consulting firm is a front for recruiting people into the church of Scientology. The more we have studied about this cult the more concerned we have become. She is going to compose a letter to her boss over the next several days outlining her concerns and stating that she can no longer be involved in these classes. This may cost her her job as we have learned that once under the control of these people they will not tolerate those that will not go along with them.

2nd. Next week I am taking over my brother bee keeping business. We have over 2000 hives and provide pollination services in both California and Michigan plus honey production of about 200,000 lbs per year. I ask for guidance in these tough economic times. Although I have owned a much larger business in the past I think this will be much more challenging.

3rd. There is a man named Ken Knight. He is a backpacker extraordinaire. My hike from Georgia to Maine looks like a city park stroll compared to his accomplishments, and on top of that he is almost totally blind. I had the privilege of spending a winter weekend hiking with him a few years ago. This last Sunday he was hiking in VA on the Appalachian trail and has not been seen since. My prayer request is that he will be found alive and his family be comforted until he is located.  Hopefully he just lost the trail because of his blindness and is wandering around lost.

Thanks

What interesting times we live in, Richard. You, your wife, and Ken will be added to my prayers. We have a concerned and loving Savior who takes a deep interest in our struggles. He will see you through this and according to James gives men knowledge when they ask for it.

We will also be praying for your requests.

I have a request I'd like to add. There is a Seventh-day Adventist family in our area going through a very rough time. They are in their early 40's and have 2 children. She lost her job not long ago and he (just 42 years old) had a stroke. It has affected his speech and mobility...and now he cannot work either. He appeared in good shape so this was a major shock to them.

What a privilege to take our requests to Him when circumstances appear to be so overwhelming and complex. Yet, He knows every circumstance, every need. The Lord has a thousand ways to work out His purposes in each of these situations and it is our prayer that their faith does not fail during the difficulties.

One down, two to go. Late this afternoon Ken Knight was located, alive, tired and embarrassed that he had gotten lost. But other than that he is fine. His vision is very bad, he can read things 3 inches away and things 10 feet away are just vague shapes so it's understandable that he got off the trail and could not find it again. Thanks ya'll that were praying for him.

I'd like to ask for pray for a young couple that the Lord has brought into our lives. I first made contact with them through an add they placed on Craigslist, asking for a place to stay. They are homeless, and she's 8 and a half months pregnant. We talked on the phone, and they ended up coming to one of our 10 days of prayer. Our church put them up in a motel for a couple of nights. Then I lost touch for a few weeks, and they surfaced again, asking for help with their car. Another member spent quite a bit of time helping them, and asked if they could park their camp trailer at our property. So they came yesterday, and the lady Niki went to church with us today, and stood up for an alter call saying she wanted to surrender her life to Jesus. We just spent several hours visiting with them, with some lively discussion, and they seem open but reserved. The man, Kevin, is intrigued with the Vatican, and we had Walter Veith's series Total Onslaught sitting there, so we suggested that we watch the series together, and they agreed. So we start tomorrow night. Please pray for this young couple, that the Holy Spirit will speak to their hearts and lead them into God's truth.

Linda, my prayers go up for this couple. I can't think of amything better to show them than Total Onslaught. If you have his "Evolutionist to Creationist-My most difficult journey," that might also be good. It is his personal testimony, and he tells the story of the events surrounding  his infant son that led him away from RC influence.

Probably close to 10 years ago, my wife and I gave her step-father a copy of The Great Controversy, which he promptly shelved. This week he told my wife he was on his second read through the book (he just finished it and started right over again). He was very interested in EGW and shocked to find that she barely had an elementary education. He has now requested a copy of a biography so he can learn more about her and he'd like to visit Historic Adventist Village to see the house she lived in. Please pray for us and him.

I'm going on a trip overnight and possibly two and it's about a seven hour drive. I have one child at Scout camp, and my oldest is staying home alone while I take my daughter with me. First time for anything like this, and as a single mom this is difficult for me. Please pray for our safety on the trip, my son's at home, as well as my son as camp. This is not easy for me so please also pray for me to have faith beyond measure, trust, and peace that passes understanding.

Our prayers are with you, dear Esther. I am convinced God gives single mothers/fathers extra help.

Brian, this is such exciting news! Oh that Mother's brothers and sisters would read the GC she had me send them a couple of years ago. I am fearful they didn't shelve them but tossed them.

I pray your wife's step father will keep up the questions and that the Holy Spirit will truly open his mind through that book.

Thank you all for your prayers! It was a safe and uneventful trip. Also, after sleeping in the car the first night and not getting any rest, we were approached by a young Seventh day Adventist man working at the store I traveled to for bulk foods. He knew that we were traveling a great distance and had called his wife to ask her if they could put us up on an air mattress in their living room! Wow! She came down to meet us and she was someone I knew from years back! Praise the Lord! So I felt very comfortable and we slept so well, had showers, and in the morning they made vegetarian breakfast for us and we shared a Sabbath morning worship! What a blessing!!! Also, my son will be attending this college and they gave themselves as a contact for him should he feel homesick, etc....

Oh, Sister, what trying times we live in. It seems the 11th chapter in 1T was just for me this morning then I thought of you. God has a plan for each of us - what that plan is is not always so obvious. I am going to spend extra time this morning in prayer for you in this circumstance. In the meanwhile, I know you are inquiring: "Search me, O God, if there be anything between me and Thee. Hedge me up closely to Your bosom. Guide me to that perfect place Thou wouldst have me be, not of my own desire, but Thine."  

That you can “run and not be weary”; you can “walk and not faint,” for you can realize by faith that you have your hand in the hand of Christ. You will not sink under discouragement, for as you follow on to know the Lord, trusting in Him, you will have the assurance that the One who never forsakes those who fully trust Him is your constant Helper, is my prayer, my dear sister and friend.

 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We will pray for your friends, dear sister. It is very sad that there is so much suffering in this world. But, God uses it for our good and His glory as we submit to Him. The love that parents have for children is great. God puts it there. I have wondered how some people who are so far removed from God have healthy children and then some consecrated parents have so much suffering because of difficulties beyond their control with their children. We know that all will work together for good as we abide in Christ.

And as we pray for your friend, we are well aware that many will be laid to rest before probation closes. Jesus is coming soon, so we need to fortify our minds for this experience. From what I have seen, it appears to be happening now.  Come soon, Lord Jesus!

Please pray for Sandra and her family. Her son, Matthew, was killed last night while riding on an ATV. He was unconscious for hours before they found him. By the time he was airlifted to the hospital, he was brain dead.

Sandra was baptized 3 years ago and she has been overwhelmed with one tragedy after another since that time. She became discouraged and quit gathering with the saints through pressures from her family and husband. Only recently did she return to "begin again." She is especially under attack.

1Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  

It is obvious he is trying to devour her in every way possible. She has a large extended family, some of whom are in the faith, but the majority of them fight against her every single day - but especially on Sabbath. Please join me in prayer for this broken-hearted woman.

Thank you all for your prayers. I feel a bit selfish asking for day shift after being blessed with a job, but if you don't ask you can't expect to receive.

So I know that if it is best for your husband to work days he'll get days...otherwise, if He placed him in nights....there must be a reason. We just don't know what it is right now.

The feelings came before I read your post, Esther, so don't feel bad.

I'm reminded of his trip to Alaska. He talked to many people on the bus, at small airports, and in Alaska about God. There are definitely those who need to hear on night shift, too. Like you said, it's in God's hands & He knows what is best.  :)

Title: Re: Prayer Requests
Post by: Vicki on November 04, 2009, 04:28:58 PM
Thank you for the reassurance, Richard.

It's been tougher than I thought trying to keep things quiet yet running smoothly. And husband is trying to do day jobs as well to keep us afloat so it's extra hard on him. Every day son moans, "I miss dad" and he's just 2 rooms away trying to sleep. Must be harder on him knowing Dad's just down the hall but can't be accessed than having him working somewhere during the day.

Last night at the shift change a supervisor recognized him from last winter and said she wanted him back on her day team. She doesn't know if she has any say-so in the matter, but she's going to try to get him transfered. If it doesn't work, I know he's meant to be where he is at least for a little longer. He's already talking to someone about world happenings who is knowledgeable on secret society stuff but not on the gospel. Perhaps he needs to be loaned a few Walter Veith DVD's... something to pray about.  :)
Title: Re: Prayer Requests
Post by: Richard Myers on November 06, 2009, 10:05:26 AM
:)  !!

Yes!! All things work together for good as we abide in Christ.  You have loaned your husband out to others for a time!  It is hard, but the little one is learning to pick up his cross and bear it bravely. You are given opportunity to share what Jesus is doing in his life. Having a godly mother and father will avail much for him. He will learn to be brave because his best Friend is there at his side. When he gets the right picture that you are painting for him, how much the attitude changes. He has loaned his father out for a time. The little one wants to help others and now he sees that he is playing a part in the bigger picture of salvation for souls just before Jesus returns. This has to encourage him in his sadness.

As it is with us, so it is with our little ones. They too must develop faith that Jesus is right there with them, even in their hearts. By faith your little one can praise Jesus for using his father to helps other know Jesus. It is by faith, but is an intelligent faith. And that is where your work is shining dear sister. As you educate your son, he is rightly understanding the invisible world. He is living for the things that are eternal, not temporal. You remain in our prayers, as does your little family. God will sustain your husband just as he did while he was in Alaska. And, he will use him likewise!   :)

The billfold was found. Thank you for your prayers. I do not ever remember after losing something and coming to God in prayer where the lost was not found.
This time I had the feeling that it would be found and how one always feels so happy when the lost is found, even more so than had not the item been lost.

This reminds me of the happiness in heaven over one lost sheep found, more so over that those who were not lost.

We're thankful for the work, but also see the problems that night shift can cause with sleep disturbance, meals & and time with family on days off, and being able to go to church - his shift is 6pm to 4:30am.

An update:

He's been working for a major national shipping warehouse which you would all recognize if I posted the name. Comparisons of last years overtime to this year being sent home early nearly every night reveals how poorly the economy is really doing. The company keeps hiring new people for an expected Christmas boom, but it just isn't happening.

We are working on being thankful in all things:

1. He still hasn't been paid for his 1st day of work from over 1 month ago even though he's filled out the paperwork for it twice.

2. His 2nd paycheck had the wrong hours of work so he is due money from that, too.  It's all on a computer log-in service so difficult to fight, but the times they show him working are way off from his schedule so that is in his favor.

3. They have computers keeping track of production & let everyone know their numbers - have to keep them up or you'll be replaced. Most nights his production levels show well above expectations. A few times they have showed way low which he says is impossible. Seasoned employees say they often have computer mess-ups. Last night he was told he's way low, yet the slower guy beside him was way high - he can be let go for this.

4. He was called into the office to talk about how his disability may be affecting his work - he has no disability.

On a better note, they are looking for coaches for the new hires. Husband asked to be a coach. It may guarantee him a 40 hour work week - something he hasn't even been close to working this season. Those who actually now of his work instead of what the computer says think he would make an excellent coach, and commend him for the patience he has displayed on the job.

My heart hurts for the trials he's been experiencing there. But, I know there are lessons to be learned in it all, and a God to glorify through it. With the shortened work schedules there are not many break times to talk to people about spiritual matters. He has left a few books in the free paperback book area.

Thank you all for your prayers.

What an update, dear sister! God can work these things through when they appear impossible to us. It reminds me of the Narrow Way vision: eyes ahead as the road gets more narrow. Drop the baggage, it encumbers, shoes off as the road cannot be trod with them, when finally the green cord is the only Thing left to hold on to, yet that little green cord is the key: faith. We pray with you for increased faith that can bring peace in the middle of this storm. We can never have too much faith.

Computers can be a real problem. I try not to do any online buying or work of any kind. I like to deal with people, not machines. It is getting hard. These companies want so much to go to computers and do away with people. :(

We will keep your husband in our prayers, dear sister. God is in control.

Well, Richard, you are evidently the problem. Buy something over the internet!  ;D

Sybil, I think of that vision often, and realize we can't grow in faith without experiencing trials. The trials will get worse so the cord can grow stronger.

Trials, tribulations. Jim added to the topic "Glory in our tribulations" the other day and I had to respond. It is an excruciating thing to do initially and even several times over until we understand the reason for them. Refinement. Then, as my brother John used to do, throwing his head up to heaven saying, "Lord, you know what You are doing. How are You going to handle this one?" He could finally glory in his tribulation knowing the One who holds his hand during it. Jesus will not burn us up during the refinement yet it may feel like it. We may cry, break down, squirm and moan until we are hoarse, yet it is for our good. When we can thoroughly understand that in the deepest recesses of our hearts, then we can glory through the pain. Our faith will be increased as we see His Almighty Hand deliver us in better spiritual condition than before the trial.

As Job said: "Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him."

"Blessed are they that mourn: for they
 shall be comforted."
Matthew 5:4.


     The mourning here brought to view is true heart sorrow for sin. Jesus says, "I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me." John 12:32. And as one is drawn to behold Jesus uplifted on the cross, he discerns the sinfulness of humanity. He sees that it is sin which scourged and crucified the Lord of glory. He sees that, while he has been loved with unspeakable tenderness, his life has been a continual scene of ingratitude and rebellion. He has forsaken his best Friend and abused heaven's most precious
                                                                           10
gift. He has crucified to himself the Son of God afresh and pierced anew that bleeding and stricken heart. He is separated from God by a gulf of sin that is broad and black and deep, and he mourns in brokenness of heart.  {MB 9.2} 

     Such mourning "shall be comforted." God reveals to us our guilt that we may flee to Christ, and through Him be set free from the bondage of sin, and rejoice in the liberty of the sons of God. In true contrition we may come to the foot of the cross, and there leave our burdens.  {MB 10.1}

     The Saviour's words have a message of comfort to those also who are suffering affliction or bereavement. Our sorrows do not spring out of the ground. God "doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men." Lamentations 3:33. When He permits trials and afflictions, it is "for our profit, that we might be partakers of His holiness." Hebrews 12:10. If received in faith, the trial that seems so bitter and hard to bear will prove a blessing. The cruel blow that blights the joys of earth will be the means of turning our eyes to heaven. How many there are who would never have known Jesus had not sorrow led them to seek comfort in Him!  {MB 10.2} 

     The trials of life are God's workmen, to remove the impurities and roughness from our character. Their hewing, squaring, and chiseling, their burnishing and polishing, is a painful process; it is hard to be pressed down to the grinding wheel. But the stone is brought forth prepared to fill its place in the heavenly temple. Upon no useless material does the Master bestow such careful, thorough work. Only His precious stones are polished after the similitude of a palace.
                                                                           11
 {MB 10.3} 
     The Lord will work for all who put their trust in Him. Precious victories will be gained by the faithful. Precious lessons will be learned. Precious experiences will be realized.  {MB 11.1} 

     Our heavenly Father is never unmindful of those whom sorrow has touched. When David went up the Mount Olivet, "and wept as he went up, and had his head covered, and he went barefoot" (2 Samuel 15:30), the Lord was looking pityingly upon him. David was clothed in sackcloth, and his conscience was scourging him. The outward signs of humiliation testified of his contrition. In tearful, heartbroken utterances he presented his case to God, and the Lord did not forsake His servant. Never was David dearer to the heart of Infinite Love than when, conscience-smitten, he fled for his life from his enemies, who had been stirred to rebellion by his own son. The Lord says, "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent." Revelation 3:19. Christ lifts up the contrite heart and refines the mourning soul until it becomes His abode.  {MB 11.2} 

     But when tribulation comes upon us, how many of us are like Jacob! We think it the hand of an enemy; and in the darkness we wrestle blindly until our strength is spent, and we find no comfort or deliverance. To Jacob the divine touch at break of day revealed the One with whom he had been contending--the Angel of the covenant; and, weeping and helpless, he fell upon the breast of Infinite Love, to receive the blessing for which his soul longed. We also need to learn that trials mean benefit, and not to despise the chastening of the Lord nor faint when we are rebuked of Him.
                                                                           12
 {MB 11.3}
     "Happy is the man whom God correcteth: . . . He maketh sore, and bindeth up: He woundeth, and His hands make whole. He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee." Job 5:17-19. To every stricken one, Jesus comes with the ministry of healing. The life of bereavement, pain, and suffering may be brightened by precious revealings of His presence.  {MB 12.1}
 
     God would not have us remain pressed down by dumb sorrow, with sore and breaking hearts. He would have us look up and behold His dear face of love. The blessed Saviour stands by many whose eyes are so blinded by tears that they do not discern Him. He longs to clasp our hands, to have us look to Him in simple faith, permitting Him to guide us. His heart is open to our griefs, our sorrows, and our trials. He has loved us with an everlasting love and with loving-kindness compassed us about. We may keep the heart stayed upon Him and meditate upon His loving-kindness all the day. He will lift the soul above the daily sorrow and perplexity, into a realm of peace.  {MB 12.2}
 
     Think of this, children of suffering and sorrow, and rejoice in hope. "This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." 1 John 5:4.  {MB 12.3}

It has been a comfort to know why we receive trials. I know we wouldn't have handled it nearly so well without knowledge of a loving Saviour.

Friday husband was finally given a long overdue check. The budget is still tight, but we were finally able to pay all the past due notices that we have been juggling for 2 months. Even though we know the trials are approved by God for our good, it is a relief to have the bills paid. I hope if the day comes where He sees fit that we cannot make the payments we will still be able to glory in His goodness.

Thank you all for your prayers. They are no longer needed. He was laid off. I am not worried in the slightest. I know God will take care of us. He has gotten us through tight spots before & I have no doubt He can & will again. We've had some beautiful answers to prayers this week.

God bless, and have a Merry Christmas.  :)

Faith like a photograph is developed in the dark. I am seeing many of our people go through great trials. All around me are more than I have ever seen. Big trials. Jesus is coming soon and is preparing us for the days ahead.

We will be praying for you in our family worship, dear sister. All things work together for good to those who love the Lord. He will turn this to good for your family.

We never know what others are going through. Even those here with us can be going through great tribulation and we may not know it. For this reason, we need to be very careful that we are listening to that still small voice that we may be an encouragement to each other. Soon it will all be over and then we will not remember these great trials. They are so little compared to what God has in store for us. Let us praise His name with the assurance our dear sister has that God will take care of us. He will provide for our needs as we abide in Him.

Let us turn our thoughts to Jesus and look for ways we can help others. And tomorrow we are at liberty to talk about the incarnation of Christ, what it means and why it was that He came to this earth a helpless babe. What a story!!
Title: Re: Prayer Requests
Post by: Vicki on December 24, 2009, 10:13:20 PM
Knowing that so many others have much bigger trials than we are facing, I wasn't going to post anything. Then I remembered asking for prayer about day shift and I couldn't leave that hanging knowing there might be someone out there still praying.

Some answered prayers:

Yesterday things weren't going as I had planned & I was in danger of letting it affect my attitude. As I went out to carry in firewood the cat came running to the door meowing his displeasure concerning food. There was plenty of food there, but it was on the deck, not in his bowl. As I hurriedly walked passed I told him he had nothing to complain about. Those words were shot right back to me, "You have nothing to complain about." So true. I wanted things served to me my way on a silver platter the same as the cat. God is good to point the danger of our thoughts out to us so they may be corrected.

And today, oh, what a heavy heart we all had. Son's been needing a winter coat something fierce. After setting aside Tithe & Offering & paying bills we had a little left & finally found him one we could afford. In the parking lot there was a distraction and we drove away with the brand new coat left in the shopping cart. Unbelievable!! An hour later we called the store & they looked in Lost & Found then searched the parking lot for us - no coat. Husband & son returned to look and the coat was waiting in Lost & Found. The chances of an honest person finding the coat must be oh so small these days...yet it happened. God was watching out for us. What a time of rejoicing we experienced. Now I know how that woman who lost a coin felt when she called the neighbors to rejoice with her!  :D

Title: Re: Prayer Requests

The lost coat was a great trial, but we continue to see that God turns these trials into good for us.
The "lost coin" was found and thus the care our heavenly Father has for us is clearly seen. It is sad, but we humans need to continually be reminded of God's love and care for us. It seems the best way is to be suffering and to go to God for relief. Remember the lesson given by and through the Apostle Paul? He was given a thorn in his side that he would be dependent upon the Lord. That thorn was no little thing, it was his very poor eyesight. Not only was he dependent upon God, but it was a continual reminder of what he was before Jesus rescued him. He was blinded by the glory of Christ on the road to Damascus. Up until that time he was murdering innocent disciples of Christ beginning with Stephen.

It helps us to remember the pit from which we have been digged and what keeps us from returning to that pit. Rather than waiting for trials to come, we may want to spend that thoughtful hour a day contemplating the life of Christ. This is a better way to be humbled. And humbled we shall be, when we compare our lives to the perfect life of Christ.

The mind of Christ may be in us. When it is, God is well able to point out that the cat is an object lesson given for our benefit.  :)  The cat was happy when it found out that it had food. It did not come in the way it expected it. And is that not the same with our dear sister. She was not expecting her needs to come on a silver platter, she was just in need and concerned about where to find the necessities. These concerns are justly ours. When tempted to complain, Jesus lifts us above our temptations. Some times he uses a cat.  :)  God is blessing you, dear Sister Vicki and through you, your little family. We thank Jesus for hearing our prayers.

I just talked with my second son.  He is the one that had a liver transplant as a baby.  Since moving out, he has not been good about keeping up with doctor appointments and getting his labwork done.  Until yesterday he had not had any labwork done since August. His transplant center had moved him from going every month to every two months in spite of evidence that things had worsened with his kidney function.  I have tried to "gently" remind him to get his labs done from time to time without being a nag.  It is hard to let your grown children do foolish things. 

Recently he decided to make an appointment to see a GI doctor.  He was blessed to be able to once again see the doctor that took care of him for a number of years.  (The doctor had moved to another medical group and we all had switched health plans!   :))  The appointment was this morning.  The good news is that his liver is doing great.  The bad news is that his kidney function has worsened some more.  I'm sure too many sodas and not enough water made this possible.  The original damage was due to the anti-rejection drug he'd taken for so many years.  They were able to take him off the drug and his levels held steady until he moved out on his own. 

He will be having an ultrasound done next week as well as seeing a kidney doctor.  That was another appointment he didn't keep up with.  I'm thinking he may just win a kidney biopsy out of all this, too.  Having seen him go through one before, I can tell you that it is definitely not fun.  Especially when they miss!   ::)

Please keep him in prayer.

Thank you, all! 

Now, I have one more prayer request.  Today we took the children to a park to play.  We were there less than an hour and someone needed to go potty!   :D  So, we headed over to the local Walmart.  It was at that point that my husband realized his wallet was not on his person.  We immediately headed back to the park and looked all over.  Not there.  Maybe it got left at home?  We came back and searched around and couldn't find it.   :(

There was one fellow hanging around the park and left while we were there.  It was probably no more than half an hour from the time we left until the time we returned.  By then there were other folks there.  Who knows? 

My main concern is over the Social Security card he lost.  I know, I know!  You're not supposed to carry those around with you.   :-[    I'm praying that whoever found the wallet just took out what little cash was in there and trashed the rest.

I was in the midst of editing my previous post when time ran out!  Anyway, here's the rest of the story. 

We were just about to go out the door to buy him another wallet and take care of a few things.  I decided to check around one more time and found it in the pants he'd worn yesterday!   ;D  He'd checked, too, but he checked the wrong pants!   :D

You know, I'd looked at the back pocket of the pants he was wearing today and couldn't imagine how the wallet could have bounced out.  The pocket seement too deep for that. 

God is good!  Even if the wallet would have really been lost, He is still good!  Always!   :)

A friend of mine of another Christian denomination has asked that we petition heaven for a potential job she is applying for. Her name is Pari and she is a mother and wife who has become the sole provider for the family. God knows if she should stay in her current position or take this new one. She has seen the evidence of our praying for "my patient" and requested it this morning.

Pray God's will for her. Thank you so much!

Thanking God for prayers answered, Diane. He is good! And, will remember your friend, too, Sybil. Yes, prayer is the key in the hand of faith that unlocks heaven's storehouse...and "Ye have not, because ye ask not."

On that note, I asked for prayer some time ago about a family situation.  A part of that situation has been taken care of very well! Praise God! It had seemed to put a small rift between my precious daughter and myself, and that is no more.  But, there is still a part (un-named) that has not been yet worked out, concerning another dear family member and a friend. I am praying this will be resolved before campmeeting if possible, to avoid more complications. I would appreciate your prayers for the best to be done in God's will. Sorry to be so vague, but if this is read by someone who knows them, it is better this way.

Prayer works!!  :) God loves us and wants us to love Him more. He wants us to turn to Him with our cares, perplexities, and needs. He loves to answer our prayers as we trust fully in Him. These posts reveal that He is real. Many will read in the future and be encouraged by how God is working in our lives and that we do indeed value the opportunity we have to pray. We place this forum at the beginning of our forums hoping that it will receive the attention that it ought to have. Prayer is our connection with our God, it is the opportunity we have to tell Him of our love and our needs. He loves to hear us praying for others.

With that in mind, I want to ask for prayers for all Seventh-day Adventist ministers. There is a day soon coming, it may already be here, when the judgment of the living will begin. This judgment will begin with the "ancient men", the church leaders. They are on vantage ground and have had great opportunity to understand what is truth. They need our prayers very much. I know that many of your are already praying for  them, but we need to be reminded. Some will be helpful in the finishing of the work. Like the Apostle Paul, some will be true to God's Word. And some are already true to God's Word. They need our prayers as they face much trial.

(What kind of art work does she do?)
Title: Re: Prayer Requests
Post by: Richard Myers on July 30, 2010, 10:34:09 PM
She is a graphics artist.  She used to do oils and colored pencil, but now she is on the computer. She did wildlife while working with oils. She is a professional, not of the modern art form.  I will take a picture of one of her paintings and post it.

From what we can tell at this point, it looks like she has some loss in one eye with her central vision. Thank you for the prayers. They are appreciated.

When I think about my vision, I am always reminded of Moses. We are told that at 120 his vision was not dimmed. :)  I think things have changed somewhat. But, lifestyle has a lot to do with vision as well as other aspects of health. We need to be so very thankful that God loves us and wants us to be in good health...and gave us so much counsel regarding health.

Sadly, many reject or neglect this counsel and suffer in consequence. Prevention is worth a thousand pounds of cure today. More and more we find that there is no cure for much of what ails us. Better to keep the dirt out of the gas tank than to have to take the car in for repairs after the engine quits working.

A prayer request for the Edmonds family, Randy, in particular. Randy is the beloved brother of Helen Edmonds, a long-time musician to the churches in our region. Helen died suddenly this week. She had a history of heart disease and thyroid cancer, both of which caused her to endure many surgeries and extensive treatments. She had been doing very well for the past several years, visiting our congregation only three weeks ago, seemingly in good health, and always wearing an exceedingly positive attitude.  We have not been told how she died. We are grief stricken. How we will miss the musical talent God laid upon that woman, through voice, piano and organ. But more than that, we will miss her sweet influence of how one is to act in the midst of great trials. She never wavered because she knew Who held her up every minute of the day.

Randy especially needs our prayer for comfort. He and Helen had a younger sister who died just a few years ago. It is a most trying time for this dear man and those who love Helen.

We have a grieving family here also. A member who is a policeman lost his daughter only 17. She took
her own life. One asks why when they have everything a child that age would want. But her mother is
a J.W. and father a SDA. The funeral had at least 400 there but there appeared to us that there was
no hope in it. Jesus was not mentioned until at the gravesite. A child suffering from depression, a child
not knowing what to believe yet having so much. The family name is Burrnett. Please keep them in your
prayers.

Thank you for your prayers. We were loaded down with about 2000 lbs, in our vehicle and it was handling as though driving on jelly rolls. I put another 10 lbs. of air in each tire and it went much better. We arrived safely. Now our concern is there seems to be no housing available within an hour's drive to work accept for housing in the city of 150,000. We have a few weeks to find a place but rentals are snaqpped up about as soon a they come up. We are not wanting to buy as we lost alot of $$ selling our last house  in drepressed Michigan and we are not convinced that the housing market is through dropping. It used to be that owning and taking good care of a house was an accet. In most areas of the country owning a house is now a liability and often the value of the house drops with each passing year. Where we are moving is very agricultural so the economy is still pretty good. Farm land sells for up to $8000 per acre even in farms of 80 acres or more. I am convinced that all areas of the US will be very depressed in the near future and who knows how much the value of a home may drop ? People have always said that renting is throwing your money away but you can throw away just as much or more right now owning and you carry a debt load as well.

I'm with you on the issue of renting vs owning.  Gotta stay mobile in case the Lord calls you somewhere in a hurry.  That's part of making yourself available to work for Him.

Will be praying ample accommodations will become available to your family.

Well, I don't envy you, cp.  The last time we moved was 25 years ago and that was quite an undertaking.  Wouldn't want to do it again.  May the Lord bless you in this new adventure.  I'll be praying for you that the Lord will provide housing for your family soon.  Living in the car isn't so bad in the summer, but . . . .  ;)

Thank you for your prayers. We are getting weary already of looking. We didn't realize there would be this housing issue. So much of the country has housing sitting empty but not here. A place to live within driving range of the city but outside the city is not an easy matter these days.

There are houses for rent and buy inside the city but who wants to live in Sodom and with children?

 :)I have a request for prayer as I am seeing my dr today about a lump under my arm.  I am a 3yr cancer survivor, but I have Sjogren's Syndrome which makes me suseptable to lymphoma.  What I really need is the Lord's peace...I have surrendered all that I am and all that I have to Him, and I know He is in control.

I am bipolar and have anxiety issues, so this isn't helping them either.  But God's way is to be my way, and I look to Him for support and care.

Thanks so much,

Naja

Dear Sister, you are in my prayers! God will never place upon you more than you can bear. Let us pray a big prayer on this one as there are multiple issues.

Psalm 103:1-5  Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.


What I really need is the Lord's peace...I have surrendered all that I am and all that I have to Him, and I know He is in control.

You are exactly where you need to be. You can do no more than this. He will be with you.

Eternal Father, we present before You our dear sister, Naja. You know her physical and mental conditions better than all her earthly physicians. We ask for her healing if it be to Your glory. We have pleaded for her children and now, we plead for her physical and mental restoration. Naja has given You her all. If it be in Your plan for her life, touch her with Your healing hand. Give her the power of Your grace to walk through this unsettling experience so that she may have Your perfect peace. Thank you for Your Son, Jesus. Help all of us to endure all trials as He did. Forgive us, Heavenly Father, wherein we have failed you. You know our frame, you know our motives. Help us in this great time of need. In the Name of the King of heaven, Amen!

If you think about it offer up a prayer for us. We are running into some unexpected issues not only in finding a house in the country to live in here in another state but one of getting rid of our previous house. We thought the selling of our previous house was a done deal and now due to new bank loan laws, it is possible that we will have to make payments on an empty house as well as paying rent on our current house. Michigan is not a good state to sell your house in. We have lost $50,000 on our house there and now there are issues with relocation buying our house from us. There are lessons involved in terms of trusting God and having patience.

Amen. We are all going through great trials as Jesus prepares us for heaven. There is not much time left. The last steps will be rapid.  You are in our prayers, cp.   Satan would destroy you, but God will only allow him to go so far. We are in the fire and Jesus has His hand on the thermostat. He is only purifying the gold. He will not allow it to be destroyed. "All things work together for good to those who love the Lord. You and your family love God and have been serving Him. He is just rounding off some of the rough corners that we might shine more brightly.

Heavenly Father, you know the situation our brother finds himself in and have provided a way of escape. Thank you for giving him faith to believe this and to express that faith that others might see in his situation one that is sustained by your grace. We pray for you to turn Satan's work to good. Use this trial to further this family's witness and to bless them. Help them to find a home that will provide the necessities that you want for them. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

I would like to ask everyone to pray for my 14 year-old daughter's situation.  She has been having fainting episodes, sometimes 20 or more a day and now can't sit up or raise her head without passing out.  She is in the hospital now and the doctors are trying to figure out what is going on.  She has had nonstop tests for the last three days.  Pray that God's name will be glorified because that is what this is all about.  Satan wants people to think that there is no God or that he doesn't care about His people.  Please pray that God's name will be glorified and that people will be drawn to Him by the revelation of His power.

Post by: colporteur on March 08, 2012, 11:57:55 AM
A few weeks ago I mentioned on the forum a situation in another town two hours away where we have been invited to come and preach at a Catholic church. There is a group of people from the Islands that desire SDA preaching. Some of them were attending the Catholic Mass on Sunday. Apparently, these people have various degrees of knowedge about the Three Angel's Message. I am thinking that most have heard little of EGW.
    I was not in favor of preaching in a Catholic church. It turns out that we will have a classroom to ourselves on Sabbath morning in the Catholic school. I am more at ease with that option. I am very cautiously optomistic but have little idea what will ensue there. Pastor has asked me to take the sermon. Others will lead out in singing and there will be a short lesson study. We will be testing the waters to see what it happening there.
     The pastor said to the priest, "do you know what we believe?" The priest replied with a chuckle, "yes, you think I am the beast."

I believe God is at work but we know that someone else is at work in a ecumentical maneuver. Not a few SDAs have entered the enemies territory and found they liked it.

We ask for your prayers as anything could happen there on the 17th of this month.

We will be praying for your Sabbath meeting, dear brother.     
Title: Re: Prayer Requests
Post by: colporteur on March 17, 2012, 07:19:56 PM
We worshiped at the Catholic school today as planned. There were about 35-40 people including ourselves. The priest is in his late 30's and soft spoken. I invited him to stay for our meeting but he could not do so this time. My sermon was on Matthew 24 : 1-8, 11, 24. There were about 25 non SDA visitors and some are probably Catholic though attending because of SDA friends and family. After the priest showed us our room he departed giving prominently the two fingered hand signal twice. Not only my wife but my son saw this. I was not paying much attention as I was trying to pull things together preparing for the Sabbath school and sermon.
     I will try in the future to keep my eye open better and if it happens again I will ask the priest, "What does that mean?" I am curious if he does not realize what he is doing which is doubtful, whether he just considers this a traditional Catholic wave or whether he is trying to tell us something else.
     The more careful side of me considers that he is saying, you are on my turf and I am working the program." I think I will insist that before very many Sabbaths we find a place to rent or else I drop out. If my family drops out the company will most likely  break up and some will continue to attend mass. This may not be a very safe environment for the more outspoken. As we would necessarily preach some rather condemning things against the Catholic church it surely would not go over well.
 
   Next Sabbath I intend on the sermon being about the state of the dead / spiritualism and I will tie it in with this week's sermon which included that if it were possible the very elect would be deceived. Since it is spiritualism that paves the way for the Sunday law it is a vital topic.

I have a horrible lump on my back, but it's many inches above where I felt the twinge. I think it's muscle strain from the past 2 days of trying to hold myself erect when I walk? If it's not well improved by Monday I'll head to the Dr, but I think things will be fine. Thank you for asking.  Happy Sabbath.  :)

Steam packs (fomentations) may help.  I have had back problems after getting hit from behind by another car.  It is difficult. When I feel a little tinge of tightness, I get a massage quickly. It seems to have headed off the larger muscle contractions.  Sometimes the heat will work. The moist heat gets down deep into the muscle tissue.  Hope you feel better soon.  If you go too long, the family will develop habits that will put you out of work!  :)

My sister-in-law died today at the age of 57. In November she presented with Stage IV lung cancer and there was nothing to be done.

Prayer request is for two of my dearest step-daughters. One left this morning from NYC to NV to spend time with her aunt. Little did she know when changing planes in the middle of the country that her beloved aunt died, so here she sits with that terrible news in the middle of one of our busiest airports in the nation. Her heart is breaking and none of us can be there to console her. The final leg of her sad journey is later tonight, so she waits. 

The other is for the youngest step-daughter. She was scheduled to visit her aunt next week. The pain of this loss is so deep, she cannot speak. We can do nothing to comfort her.

Please remember them in your prayers. These are my girls and even though I did not have the great honor of giving birth to them, my heart is convinced I did.

Sybil, I will be praying for these two ladies and that your influence will guide and give them comfort. When I read your post this text is what came immediately to mind.

The lump didn't go away. I put off going to the chiropractor because I was able to get around better each day. There was a Health Fair this weekend that I took son to visit. A chiropractor was there so I had to stop past that booth. The lump was my new spinal alignment.  :(  He adjusted me. The lump has greatly lessened, but I will need more treatments. I couldn't bend over and touch my toes before the adjustment - couldn't even get close. After the alignment it was easy.  :)  The pain worsened from being manipulated, but that too shall pass.

I report for jury duty selection tomorrow.  Life is full of curve balls.

But, as I sat and listened to so many trying to get off the hook (which greatly drug out the ordeal) I realized it is a privilege we have in this country and I was willing to be chosen.  One woman was a Catholic and said her religion was against judging others so she could not sit in judgment against the person on trial. "know ye not that we shall judge angels? How much more the things in this life?" and "Judge righteous judgment" went through my mind. How sad so many do not understand the scriptures. It was a bit disappointing to leave. Those not chosen were dismissed before 3pm but I wanted to stay to hear the rest of the questioning. My back would not allow it. I have been resting a lot this week thinking perhaps I'll not have to go to a chiropractor. Monday is the deciding day. It is feeling a lot better, but I'm not positive things are OK.

Sybil, I really like the picture of your SIL. What a lovely adventure she got to have. I studied Art History in college & wished I had gone ahead to further my history studies to be knowledgeable enough to work in a museum but I was burned out on school. It would have been a pleasure to know her and discuss our mutual love. I hope the hearts of those who miss her are healing; it takes a long time.

Sybil, I'm sure I would have enjoyed knowing your SIL because we would have had a love of art in common. I am glad to know that your step-daughters are comforted.

I have a praise to give to our God. Ed has a new job, which he got two weeks after his last week of work. But it means we much move. It will still be in the same state, but it means house hunting all over again, plus settling things here. Still need prayer that we will be able to break our lease and get our deposit back and have help with the actual loading and unloading when the time comes. Also that God will lead us to the right place to rent. I dreaded the thought of moving especially since it's been less than a year since our last move. I had to pour my heart out to God to please change my attitude and make me willing to pack and move. He is doing so.

A job - wonderful news! I have been wondering how the interviews went. I pray the move isn't too hard on either of you, and that all the details are worked out smoothly. "Be strong and of a good courage" has been going through my mind a lot lately. I pray for strength and courage for you also.  In the earth made new we won't plant and another harvest  - those who have had to move a lot will definitely appreciate that blessing!

Yes, books are very heavy, but I can give you some help here.  After many years of moving books, there is a secret.  Do not use washing machine boxes to pack them in.  Keep the boxes small. :)  Then moving books is a pleasure. Yes, it takes more trips, but so what.  It is God's time. Now you will smile as you carry your boxes of books.  If you find a box of books that is somehow a little too large, leave it for Ed.  :)

If you think about it send up a prayer today for me. I have been aggressively advertizing the medical clincs when I can and then canvassing on Sunday and evenings when possible. Today my wife took the children with her to work so I have the whole day to sprint through. I work the medical offices at a hectice pace straight through from 9:00 until 5:00 p.m or after and its a lot of footwork. My R Arthritus has been getting worse to where my feet are giving me trouble. So far it has not slowed me down much and I still speed from one clinic to the next but it takes quite a toll and I pay for it later in the day and the next day. Even so God is blessing. Sunday I canvassed a young  Mormon mother in the city and her teenage daughter. She purchased the 3 volume health set from Spain that we carry, "Encyclopedia of Foods" as well as the Natural Remedies Encyclopedia. I included the Great Controversy illustrated by Vance Farrel and promised to come demonstrate how to make cashew cheese at their house. This week I added to and altered  the Black Hills cheese recipe and came up with a very satisfactory cheddar like cheese for making grilled cheese sandwhiches.

No, but I'll take a look.
Had a head ache and my feet hurt until about 6:00 p.m. then I kind of snapped out of it and did better when I slowed down and went to canvassing. As I passed a store heading to a clinic a lady stopped me and was interested in the books. I went and brought back my case and canvassed her in the store. She purchased Ministry of healing and a couple of children's magabooks. Then I canvassed a black lady with two grown daughters and a baby grand daughter. They were penniless until Frieday but we had a nice Bible study about Peter's vison. Her one daughter had stopped eating pork. They had a lot of questions about death and heaven and after at least an hour they said they were sorry to see me go. It is good to get that kind of feedback.

The above line puzzels me.

It appears to be a typo.  Tryptophane is high in animal products and nuts.   It is an amino acid that is found only in protein. Gluten is a high protein food also.

Post by: colporteur on June 29, 2012, 06:14:06 PM
Yes a cash offer for $10,000 less than we needed came in on the last day of our appointed listing with the relator. It was our one and only offer and it needed to be a cash offer due to some new ruling involving our private road. Strangely while it was the last day that the house could be showed it was one day after we had rented it out. We had not yet signed the lease agreement but the new renter did and we agreed on the lease. It was just a matter of receiving the lease in the mail, signing it, and cashing the check. Then out of nowehre comes a cash offer but too low and after we had eccentially shook hands with the renter, so to speak. I countered the offer at $10,000 higher and said that it had to happen today or not at all because I did not know if the renter would give up the lease and I could not keep him hanging as he was on route to move in today. Then too if he even would let the lease go how much incentive $$$ would he need to do so. Acreages to rent here are hard to come by and we had over 30 calls in 2 weeks wanting to rent our house. Miracle #1- the propsective buyer accepted my counter off at $10,000 higher and without any counter offers. Now, to approach an excited young man getting ready to move into his nice rental house, and ask him to give up the lease and look elsewhere. I was not sure he would do so even with a $2000 incentive. He did so, and would not accept any $. Miracle #3 we are waiting on that being that there will not be any glitches in terms of the buyer following through. Why didn't we get the offer a few days before renting the house ? The only thing I can think of was to test my integrety and see if I would dump the renter because legally (but not ethically ) I could do so because technically I had not signed the lease yet. My attorney and the realtor were amazed that I didn't force my hand and would let the deal fall through if the renter would not let me out of the lease. It was a chance to witness. It would have been tough had I not been able to get out of the lease but I would have honored the lease on an ethical basis alone because it would have been a bad witness to do otherwise (IMO). In the end it seems to be working out with the accompanyment of a good witness.  I beleive the Lord hooked us up with that renter to begin with because He knew th kind of young many he was and that he would bosw out for us. I told the mn I am a Christian and I could not stiff him. He said he is a Catholic and could not hold me to that under the circumstances. I suspect this is another providential divine connection for us and for the wold be renter. I will send him a Great Controversy and a Desire of Ages as a thank you gift.

I would like to ask everyone to pray for my 14 year-old daughter's situation.  She has been having fainting episodes, sometimes 20 or more a day and now can't sit up or raise her head without passing out.  She is in the hospital now and the doctors are trying to figure out what is going on.  She has had nonstop tests for the last three days.  Pray that God's name will be glorified because that is what this is all about.  Satan wants people to think that there is no God or that he doesn't care about His people.  Please pray that God's name will be glorified and that people will be drawn to Him by the revelation of His power.

On November 22, 82-year-old Dr. Agatha Thrash, co-founder of Uchee Pines Institute, suffered a stroke while lecturing at the Lifestyle Center on campus. Since then Dr. Thrash is gaining strength and seems to be improving daily, but is still unable to converse much. She says short sentences and shows that she has the information she needs to communicate but is not able to do so verbally. Dr. Wynn Horsley, our Medical Director states: “The stroke of Dr. Agatha Thrash is not caused by the build-up of cholesterol and saturated fat that causes most strokes. In contrast, this stroke was caused by a rhythm problem, which changes blood flow and often leads to blood clot formation. Later break-up of the clot can lead to a piece of the clot flowing in an artery to the brain where it will cause blockage of blood flow, i.e., a stroke looking like other strokes, though the cause is quite different. There is no single clear cause of this rhythm problem.” Dr. Thrash has been successfully battling this heart rhythm problem with lifestyle and herbal remedies for many years. We appreciate your continued prayers on her behalf.

Thank you for your continued prayers for my mom. She’s doing amazingly well — doing most of her personal care, and walking around, even in the woods, really well. She uses her hiking sticks when she’s outside, which adds stability and reassurance. She’s still not taking well, although she’s made a lot of progress from where she was at the beginning of this journey. We’re now trying to find good help for her for the long-term. Knowing that so many people are praying for her has been a huge comfort and blessing to us — a great concert of prayer!

Dr. Thrash is a giant in the church. She is so humble and would not even flinch when giving strait but tactful testimony regarding health. She also has a bit of delightful dry humor. I remember speaking  with her one time. I said that the number one cause of death on one of the islands was from coconuts. When I said it was from getting hit on the head by falling coconuts she looked at my wife with a grin and chuckle and said, " where did you did him?" I was presenting a truthful fact yet kind of tongue. Her reaction was so funny.

Prayers have been answered!

It was wild when we left for church but we had done everything we could to prepare so we felt at peace leaving everything in Gods hands. About 23 people showed up. The winds howled and windows shook but the blessings inside were numberless. The head elder had the communion service. It was simple but very meaningful. He took us through several scripture texts reminding us of why we celebrate this service and the attitude in which we should participate.  The storm was not suppose to hit in full force until between 1 and 3 p.m. At about 11:45 a.m. as we sat in the comfort and protection of Gods house we were amazed to see the sun come out in all it's splendor. It changed from dark rolling clouds to white fluffly ones and large patches of blue sky. It was thrilling to watch. None of us were in a hurry to leave. The gusts are still high but very little rain.

When we arrived home I inspected my garden. No serious damage done. Trellis's were knocked down but plants were not broken. Twigs on the ground with lots of leaves that were torn off by the wind but that's it. We are so blessed.  :)   Thank you for your prayers.

Thanks again, my brother. Our soil is sandy and easy to dig in. Most residential wells in this part of Texas aren't very deep. Ours' is only 115 ft. and is a 2 in. diameter well. We have an air lift system to bring the water up. All the well service companies are telling me that we need to punch down another 100 ft., go to a 4 in. well, and switch to a jet pump to ensure that we have enough water.

Howdy my brothers and sisters. I'm sorry I haven't been in touch, but you are all in my prayers every day. You all are my family and I think dearly of you. I've been weak and very tired and this is the first time I've been back on the web because of it. Nurses are coming to my home three times a week drawing blood and checking on me. I'm at a different doctor, and sometimes two doctors, almost every day. They are all doing tests and it is so tiring. And helping Cathy to haul water sometimes really wears me out but I can't let her do it all. It is obvious that my body is breaking down and wearing out, but I have no fear or worry about it, for I am His child and He is in control.

I am so thankful that we have a God that is like Christ. All this is for His glory am I am honored that He loves me so much that He chastises like this to correct me and help me to become what He desires. My faith is growing stronger and, what is to me most important, my love for my Savior is growing so much. The joy and peace I have in my heart from knowing that all this is according to His plans and that He is in control, no matter what happens, gives me a rest that I can't describe. We are told that love is the going forth of the heart unto the object beloved. O, how I love Him!

I am filled with wonder that He cares and loves me so much to do this for me. And to think that the love I have for Him does not originate within me, but is a gift, a grace wrought by the Spirit, that He gives to me that I may love Him more and more. The more thankful I am to Him for all His blessings, the more I fall in love with Him. My greatest desire is to have a closer union with my dear Jesus, to have a closer communion with Him and to live with Him forever more. May we soon be able to be with Him.

 Hope to be back soon...May our God and LORD be with you and bless you all (even those who are Yankees  ;D ). I love you all.

Thank you for all your prayers my dear brothers and sisters. I am doing much better and feeling stronger.  I have finished with the medical tests for now and the results are poor in some cases and good in others. Thanks be to our God and Savior for His Grace and Mercy!

I hope to be posting more and catching up on all the news. Again...thank you all.

TRO website has not been working for me lately so I haven't been able to post for awhile. I'm hope this goes through ok.

COP I was so happy to hear that you had a good report. You will remain in my prayers until you advise otherwise. We serve such a wonderful, merciful and compassionate God. Even when things don't turn out the way we would hope they would we can continue to trust Him knowing if we could see the big picture we would not choose it any differently. May God continue to give you courage and strength.

I would like to put forth a prayer request of my own. It's a little odd in that it's for my dog. I'm feeling a bit responsible right now for not following through with the Dr's orders. She has a back injury and the vet said no stairs (even just one or two... I asked) but she was feeling so much better and it's kind of a pain to have to carry her outside and then back inside, especially this weather so I was letting her do her own thing.

Then last night on her way into the house she slipped on the step and yelped and now she can barely walk again. If I could kick myself hard I would. Back injuries for dogs are bad news and I don't wish to be responsible for her down fall.

So I'm asking that if you think about it to pray for her.

Because I know all about back injuries and back surgeries my heart goes out to your little friend and to you. No doubt she will be in a lot of pain. I have no problems praying for Gods wonderful creatures that bring us so much pleasure.

It's interesting that this has happened because of not listening. I had to have a 2nd back surgery because I was feeling so good after the first one; then I broke a "few" of the little rules and ruptured my disk once again. Only the second one left me very limited in what I can do with hardly a day without pain. It's hard to watch a pet suffer so I will be praying for her recovery according to God's will.

We all suffer from the same dullness of mind. After 6,000 years of sin, we suffer greatly. But, God is not only Good, but sympathetic and understanding of our condition. Jesus suffered in like manner coming into this world with a human nature degraded by his earthly ancestors. It is true He was God in the flesh, and sinless, but He was tempted at a much higher level than we shall ever be. So, He understands our situation and is our Helper in all of our needs. He loves us and cares for us. He is ever drawing us to Himself and desirous that we should learn the lessons that cause us to depend upon Him.

Both of you are turning to God for help and doing as He has told us, to value prayer as an answer to all of our difficulties in life. That we all should be so quick to do so is my prayer as well as praying for your dog, Jim, and your back, Dear Dorine. We are learning to depend upon Jesus, to turn to Him.

There is a lot of sickness in our area this winter. So many suffering from one thing or another. I will be praying for you Marie that this will soon pass. Also that your trust in God will stay strong. I've been suffering with much pain this winter and have not been on RO much at all but I'm glad I checked today to find your request. The old devil is hard at work to break us down but he has no idea what he's up against when we are connected to God. Well maybe he does and that is why he beats on us so hard.

Thank you. I can use your prayers. It seems these last years when I do get sick it just hangs on forever. The tubes that go from the ears to the throat don't work on me and the fluid gets caught up there behind the ear drums. I've had tubes put in three times now so it can drain. I am hoping it is not filling up again.
Amy, I too have been experiencing more pain this year in certain places. I don't know what it is, but I'm not enjoying it a bit. I hope everyone else here is doing well. :)

Our 14 year old son is in need of prayers. He woke up in pain last week and we ended up in ER with the prospect of surgery looming over him. That was ruled out. He has developed other complications. We are waiting for a phone call from someone with a medical background at Weimar to help us decide the next step.

I know God is in control and have complete faith in Him. I also know there is power in prayer.

Thank you for adding your prayers to ours.

Spent last night at the hospital with daughter and grandson. The local hospital put him on a helicopter and transferred him to another larger children's hospital. Your prayers are appreciated. They appear to have gotten things stabilized. He had a very high blood sugar level which the local doctor had missed for a couple of weeks.

Thank you for your prayers, dear friends.   The local physicians missed the diagnosis and what ought to have been a simple matter created a crisis.  Sometimes it takes a crisis to get us to stop and consider the frailty of life. It was what got my attention when Jesus came into the world and woke me up many years ago.

Doctors say he will be going home soon. Again, thank you for your concern and prayers. God hears and answers prayers. He loves us!

Hello Sister Naja. It is good to see you online again!  God has blessed you with your faith in prayer, and your love for others. We will pray for our sister who seems to be troubled. We never know what is happening in the lives of others. We do not know their motives, nor where their heart is in relation to Jesus. But, we do know, God will hear our prayers as we abide in Him.

Heavenly Father, our Sister Naja has given us the privilege of praying with her for her friend Janice. You know the situation, you know the numbers of the hairs on her head. You allowed your innocent Son to come to this dark world where Satan claims dominion a helpless babe subject to the weakness of humanity at the risk of losing Him. Such love for us and that includes our Sister Janice. We ask that you send angels and the Holy Spirit to minister to her. And, we pray that if you can work through others as you are doing through Naja, please send someone to comfort her and to point her to Jesus. We thank you for hearing and answering our prayer in the very best way you can and in the time that will be best for our Sister Janice. We pray this in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Heavenly Father, we pray for our Sister Sherry. We do not know her situation, but you do. We ask that you comfort her and her family in this difficult situation. We ask that you give the physicians attending her wisdom to discover the underlying problem. If there be anything thing that would keep you from healing her, we ask that you reveal this to our sister and give her grace to correct the matter. We thank you for the light you have given in the area of health that we might be restored to good health. So many today do not understand the relationship between what we do and sickness. Help us as a people to be witnesses in this area and help us to use the health message as the "right arm" in our effort to save the lost. We also pray for Pastor Sean, that you give him wisdom and grace to that which will allow you to heal him if that be for your honor and his benefit. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Prayers for our daughter Hannah who is at YD camp right now in Washington State. Two evenings ago she and another came forth at the appeal for baptism during the evening meeting. Today at about noon during line call she lost vision and passed out. They more or less carried her to her mother and then the camp doctor. They thought at the time maybe it was dehydration. She has been drinking water ever since but 10 hours later she passed out again. She has a fever and soar throat. She, the camp doctor and her mother are with her in the hospital right know. Currently they are monitoring her heart. We have no idea at this point what is going on. Since there are no coincidences there can be no doubt but what Satan is attacking her after her decision to be baptized. She is 13 and delivered her first sermon a month ago. She has been adult superintendent on and off since she was 10.  Prayers for Hannah.

Heavenly Father. You know the heart of this little girl and the problem she is facing. You know the anguish of the family at this time. Please give them peace and assurance as You work out Your plan for her life. We have been reading daily about the healing's and miracles that You performed when here on earth. We know Your power and love is no less now than it was then. We leave her in your care. Give the Doctors and those caring for her the wisdom and knowledge that is needed for her recovery.

Hannah and her mother were in the hospital into the early morning hours and I was getting texts from them and my grown daughter in Phoenix until 3:00 a.m. my time. They put her on an IV and run some tests. They are saying it was dehydration. We were concerned after she passed out the second time several hours later that it could have been effects from a heat stroke or some other unknown. She had a fever, high blood pressure, and a severe headache. Heat and dehydration can cause all three of those. They sent the girls back to camp and as far as I know things are ok. I'm sure Hannah will not want to miss one minute of camp. She takes camp very seriously. She and her brother say that this camp is life changing. Camp is wonderfully intense and it has been hot and dry there. They rise at 6:00 a.m. and go until 9:00 p.m..   Thanks for your prayers !

Prayer request for my mother. I believe she is either demon possessed or at least heavily harassed daily.

Title: Re: Prayer Requests

Yes, we will pray for your mother, cp. None have a character so bad that Jesus cannot transform it. We read in Scripture of demon possessed that were delivered from their demons. So, it is today, Jesus does not change. He can heal the sick today as well. We are living witnesses of the greatest miracle God can do, recreate us in His image.

While it takes time to produce an abundant harvest of fruit in the life, at conversion you mother can have all of the fruits of the Spirit right then and there! This radical transformation of character, Jesus can do in a moment. But, conversion is the end of a long protracted process of wooing by the Holy Spirit. As Sister Doreen has encouraged you, for many years your character has been testifying to the miracle of conversion to your mother.

You are the very best tool in God's hand to lead your mother to Jesus. As you demonstrate every one of the fruits of the Spirit when in great difficulties, you are witnessing to her the miracle of God that He wants to give her.

Heavenly Father, we come to you asking that you give our dear Brother colporteur, wisdom and grace to continue to minister to his mother. We pray for the angels and the Holy Spirit to work in ways they would not have worked if we had not prayed for this dear mother for whom you suffered and died. We thank you for answering this prayer in the very best way you can. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.

Yes, the problem is that we do not get along. She is in a nursing home because she is nigh well impossible to be around and cannot always take of herself as she is on a lot of meds going from doctor to doctor to doctor to doctor. She holds a lot of grudges and is bitter to the bone. Last time we talked on the phone she was so mad about the people in the home she was talking about killing them and " somebody ought to hang her" type stuff. She does not mean it but it sounds terrible. I have told her before that I will not talk to her if she keeps talking that way plus that is not good stuff to have someone potentially record. She accused my daughter of something entirely untrue. When I told her to don't go there she cussed me out and hung up the phone. She has never really surrendered her heart to God so naturally she is not happy and she has always had a hot temper. Whenever we talk very early on she goes on a rant and just keeps it up. My brother lives close to her but she gets in between him and his wife. He is on his fourth wife and knows not the Lord either.

Isaiah 46:4 says...."Even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and I will deliver you."

So sorry to hear that CP. My mother was a lot like that. She too ended up in
a nursing home after her husband died. She could not care for herself either.
But in there they medicated her and she became much more manageable.
I hate to say it, but I did not have the chance to see her much. Lived across
the country. When I did finely move closer it was still 3-4 hours away.
By that time I was hurting too bad to travel very far. But hopefully we
will both be in the Kingdom and I can see her normal and happy. I pray
the same for you and your mom.
