Lord, Hear Our Prayers

Dear Trinity God, please forgive our sins and have mercy on us and our pets. Please end the pandemic soon; protect and grant help to the persons with disabilities, the homeless, the poor and the sick. We ask for divine protection, NO fire, NO tribunal, NO eviction, and NO harassment. Stop action from authorities. Completely stop harassment from the landlord. We ask the Holy Spirit to inspire Victor to complete all legal letters and actions before the deadline to stop eviction. We ask for dutiful lawyers, impartial judges and adjudicators to be assigned to our case. We ask for financial grace enough for all 3 legal fees and buying nutritious groceries. We ask PC and OC to open doors for us to be able to access all records. Lord, leads us to caring doctors and kind priests. We pray we are able to keep the doctor’s appointment on Oct. 24. Please help me to find and remember all email passwords to get into email accounts. Through Jesus, I ask. Amen. — Joyce

Please pray for my daughter, Kaitlin Grace. She was born with a venus Mmalformation a.k.a. vascular anomaly. At 20, she has learned that it caused considerable erosion to the bone behind her nasal cavity. She is at risk for brain seizures and irreversible damage. Pray for her healing, that the medicine her doctors want to prescribe will shrink the blood vessel and prevent further damage; that she will not need brain surgery and the medicine’s side effects will be minimal and tolerable. Pray that she will have a long, healthy, happy life. I might be asking for a miracle, but I believe in miracles! Thank you!

In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray that all spiritual warfare and all the residue and effects will be removed completely from me, and I will be perfectly protected from future spiritual warfare because my good friend stole my husband, Jim, from me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray that my husband stop the divorce and immediately come home to me today and repent for what he did and be completely faithful, loyal, kind, attractive to me and love only me and realize how special our marriage is and he will start immediately trying to repair our marriage.

I am asking for prayer that I will be open to God's word, to have forgiveness in my heart. I want so badly to have a relationship with Jesus and understand the Bible. I am also asking for prayer that I am cancer free and that the inflammation on my brain goes away.
