Dear Lord,

Thank you for bringing so many wonderful people into my life. Please watch over my Aunt as she begins her long healing process. Watch over **** and my parents and please keep them healthy and happy. Please watch over me as I travel outside the country this week. Thank you for all the blessings you have given today and every day.


Thank you LORD

Thank you Jesus

Prayers to **** and those who went on a mission trip.

To ****** and ****** who open their home to worship to all

I ask for prayer for me and my husband, as we’re both feeling a bit lost, and a lot frustrated, not knowing how to lead full, fulfilling lives, without doubt or fear.

Dear God,

Please wrap ***** all up in your love. Keep him safe and open his heart and mind to all of your reverant wonder.


Dear Lord,

Pray for my staff and students – that we may finish this school year safely and successfully.

Please give me patience and guidance during this time as I continue to job search and stay in a continuous job situation.

Please also be with my friends who are in the job search journey.

I pray for ******* –

That her throat heals, so she may use her strong, beautiful voice.

Please pray Isaiah 19:21 and 2 Corinthians 1:20 and Hebrews 6:17-20 and Deuteronomy 23:21-23 and 2 Timothy 4:17-18 and Ecclesiastes 5:1-8 and 2 Peter 1:20-21

I vow to obey all these scriptures I wrote until I keep every vow I made to God/etc.

I pray that I may give all things to God, and trust that He will provide everything in His mercy and perfect timing.

I pray for strength for my friends and family and myself to get help when we need it. I pray for my sister and her relationships and for my dad’s plans to move.

I pray for direction in my life – or to know that I need to stay still for now.

Dear God –

Thank you for your big love – bigger than I comprehend, bigger than I believe I deserve. Teach me to love this way. Make my heart a spacious one. I love you.



Thank you thank you thank you for bringing my son home safely. Please guide me in my effort to maintain of the best possible relationship with him, and with my whole family.
