PRAYER REQUEST



     Hello Christian Pals Blog Readers. Prayer is our direct line of communication with our Savior Jesus Christ and our Father God. It allows us to build a relationship, to thank him for what He has given us, and to request help when in times of need. 

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." - Philippians 4:6

   We would love to help lift up your request to God! Add your prayer request in the comments section below. I grew up hearing the phrase "strength in numbers" and I believe that applies to prayers as well. Please share with us when your prayer has been answered too because we love hearing about the miracles performed by God!   

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” - Matthew 18:20

  1. I'm writing in the hopes that you will help me share my story. I'm a disabled veteran and struggle each day with Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, GAD, Depression and PTSD. I’m also a husband and father to five great kids. Without my faith in Jesus and God's unending grace, I would not be here today. I've been blessed with far more than I deserve & tormented with suffering beyond anything I ever imagined. Through it all, I’ve kept my faith and Jesus has stood by my side, giving me strength in the darkest days. I want to pay my blessings forward to others who are suffering too, by sharing my story and letting them see what is possible with faith and hope. Please help me share my story- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dearbillie/dear-billie-salvation-in-the-poconos

  2. I really enjoyed this particular blog. Great advice and good ideas for family activities. I write a blog and I would love to share this on my blog, if you don't object.

    May we all be clay in the Potter's hands.

      All I ask is that you list Christian Pals Blog as the reference for the posting.

      Thank you for writing us Jan. Have an amazing day!

    1. "Jesus answered, “Have faith in God. The truth is, you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, mountain, fall into the sea.’ And if you have no doubts in your mind and believe that what you say will happen, then God will do it for you. So I tell you to ask for what you want in prayer. And if you believe that you have received those things, then they will be yours. When you are praying and you remember that you are angry with another person about something, forgive that person. Forgive them so that your Father in heaven will also forgive your sins.” - Matthew 11: 22-26

      Thank you for allowing me to join you in prayer Maryoli Nin. We must pray with no doubts.

      God, heal Natalie's body from this sickness and allow her to sit up and breathe right now. Let the fever break as we speak and protect her family from this virus. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

  4. "Hi I need prayer to completely defeat lust in my life and the after affects, it has been a source of many of my problems, thank you very much for your prayers!
    Also... I need prayers so that I can go to bed early, so that I can be productive during the day, also that I can pay all my bills off. And get out of debt, so that I can give generously to deserving ministries... marriage with Rosa (newly weds)! Reconciliation with my daughters. And a good relationship with my Ex.
    Dyna that she would be on fire for God! Thank you very much for the prayers... amen... blessings to you!... Andy"

    1. Hi Andy,

      Thank you for allowing us to pray for and with you. Lust is a very powerful sin and can be found everywhere in our media and it does impact relationships. Identify the source(s) and then cut it out from your life completely. Continue to Pray that God removes the temptation from you.

      Plenty of sleep can make a great impact in one's life. Try setting a daily alarm on your phone to remind you to go to bed at a set time and an alarm to wake up. Then, after some time this should become habit for you.

      For the debt, I recommend checking out Dave Ramsey. He really does teach a great method which helps people get out of debt. Check out this page from his site: https://www.daveramsey.com/blog/ways-to-get-out-of-debt

      I pray all your relationships (wife, ex, and daughters) all improve. Remember, no matter what happens, stop...and think before you speak/act. Consult with God on what to do and say. Your actions speak volume, allow the light of God to shine and be displayed in your life, and your family will see that light too.

      This is a tough moment in life Andy, but I am very proud of the fact that you are taking a stand and wanting to live the way God intended. Keep your faith in Jesus, keep the Sabbath, and start a daily bible reading plan (YouVersion has a great app for phones) to feed the spirit the Word of God.

      God bless you and thank you again for letting us pray for you Andy.

  5. Please, pray that Jason & his family trust Jesus as their Savior and Lord. They think religion is just brainwashing. Pray that they see Jesus is perfect, yet personal. Pray that I follow God's direction. Thank you!

    1. Seek God's direction by reading his Word. Start a daily bible reading plan if you haven't already to feed the spirit the Word of God. Reading the Bible is so important and reading it every day keeps God on your mind daily to help you follow His direction. Also, go with what you read in the Bible, and not that of man's perspective/opinions.

      I am sorry to hear about Jason and his family not trusting Jesus and thinking God's Word is brainwashing. God is the only one who knows how to reach someone in the best way. I pray God sends someone to plant that seed so that it can grow and grow, bringing Jason and his family to Christ.

      Thank you for allowing me to pray with you. Keep praying and reading his Word.

    1. Thank you for reaching out to us and allowing us to pray for, and with you. Take a moment to read the following scripture. Study line-for-line and listen to what God is speaking to you right now:

      "4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. 5 Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. 6 Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth. 7 Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits." - Corinthians 13:4-7

      Love your wife and don't give up on her (or yourself). Show her the love mentioned in the verse above and she will notice.

      Analyze yourself and figure out what childlike behaviors are causing issues (write them down if needed) and put a stop to them.

      Think before you speak. Before you speak or react (even body language reactions), pause, take a breath, and ask yourself "Will this build up or tear down?" You don't want to say anything that tears down such as name calling, throwing wrongs back in her face, bringing up the past. Those add fuel to the fire which cuts at your spouse. That's why the Bible compares the tongue to that of a double edged sword. Instead, only focus on building her up and admit when you are wrong. Afterwards, work on correcting that wrong.

      If in an argument, let her speak and don't dare interrupt or try to speak over her. Let her speak until she finishes completely. Interrupting and yelling only adds fuel to a fire and shows no self control. When she does finish speaking, wait a couple seconds before you respond (once again, allow yourself to think before you speak whether your response will build up or tear down). Refrain from anger no matter what and keep your cool. Remind her that you love her and you want to work this out.

      Selfishness can be a cancer inside. The feeling that "this isn't fair" or "I deserve this..." goes against what Love is. So show her the opposite! Do things without any expectations of receiving anything in return. Clean the house, cook her breakfast/dinner, take care of her needs, and provide a listening ear that contributes support. If you have friends/family that speak negative in anyway regarding your relationship, tell them to stop, and you ignore their negativity. Remember, they are not the one who is risking their relationship with her, it's you.

      Sit down with her and tell her (and truly mean it), "I don't want to lose you. I love you and I want to work on us" and make that change! Tell her everything that she does that you appreciate. DO NOT GIVE UP. The devil wants to steal, kill, and destroy us...and he does it by tearing our families/relationships apart.

      Now stop and think...what is God telling you...right now.
