Please pray for myself, wife, and kids as we are in some dark times. My wife feels that love is missing from the marriage and is feeling that a separation would be best. I pray that whatever love is missing or not there can be given for the sake of all involved. I pray for strength in trying to love mercifully during this hard time. Jesus, I trust in you and in God’s plan. Help show us the way.

Please intervene God, please help me, I'm hurt inside, I am so tired to cover everything by pretending and no matter how hard I pray nothing seems to be working. Please pray for Damianus and me. I have been waiting for reconciliation and peace for me and him, everyone tells me to forget and leave it, they keep pressing me. I cried, it's not so easily as they say and imagine. I feel so traumatized, I have been struggling with depression and suffering for the past three years. I know you knows my pain God, You always know what was happened because You see everything a most hidden corner, Father, you say, ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. I come with a broken heart, I depend on you and still hope, if God deigns, please God soften and touch Damianus' heart for me. I can't touch his heart, only God can change people's hearts. Please help me face things that are beyond my capabilities because God you have the power to help me. Teach me how to remain grateful when the hardest one, teach me to let go, teach me to love you more than anything, teach me to know you more God. Please help me with your prayers, I really need a miracle. Thank you.

Okay, so God know's where I am, and what my needs are... He's been sending me messages in ways only God can or will. And He said, "If I can build a castle in the middle of the desert without scaffolding, I can MAKE YOU HAPPY." For years I've asked if where I am is where I'm supposed to be - and though the devil would confuse whatever answer I would hope to get, no doors ever opened for me to go anywhere else. I am not happy. I miss my joy. I miss my family. I want to sing my face off to whoever will listen as it is the ONE gift I have that makes me happy. Anyway, I need God to Champion me in a way that's for me, in a way that I know I'm safe and loved and that my future is in His hands. I asked God for years for a deep abiding love from a life partner, a Christian man who was humble, kind, devoted, adoring, loyal.. I want my son's mind to clear and his life to be straight. A husband who adores me. And a purpose. I have two beautiful grandbabies I live too far away from to see often. There's a whole lot I need - a job, a REAL job, I'd hope it was in music. A family, a purpose and a life partner. One other thing... I want to thank God for not casting me aside and for allowing me to stand on my belief's no matter how shaky the ground, he's held me still and kept me from falling prey to the world and other people. Thank you Lord. Thank you so much for keeping people away from me who might do me harm and keeping me from making bad or scary decisions. I am grateful that "He Knows My Name". Amen.
